Game Centre: Raptors have no problem silencing Jazz in Utah

Game Centre: Raptors have no problem silencing Jazz in Utah

The Raptors star tweaked his ankle Friday night in a victory against the Suns. They have given up the sixth fewest points in the National Basketball Association season.

The Lakers took a beating this bad to a decent team without their best player on the court is quite concerning.

More impressive than Hield, however, has been the massive leap second-year point guard De'Aaron Fox has taken.

Pay too much attention to one of them and it's usually the other who benefits from it. Greg Monroe, who hadn't played more than 4:49 in a single game before Monday, showed his veteran presence as he stepped up in Ibaka's absence, looking like he hadn't missed a beat as he went 4-for-5 from the field with three rebounds in almost 13 minutes.

Women elected to House in record numbers
In Tennessee, Marsha Blackburn kept an open Senate seat in Republican hands and helped affirm her party's control in the chamber. In Minnesota, Ilhan Omar became the first Somali and one of the first two Muslim women elected to Congress.

But that didn't matter much with the Jazz only shooting 45 per cent from the field and eight per cent from three; Toronto's 26-for-41 from the field and 8-for-17 from behind the arc kept the team in business as they struggled to find a defensive rhythm.

Raptors: Finish their road trip on Wednesday at Sacramento.

Once their starters had seized command, the Raptors worked some of their reserve players into the contest.

Knicks reserve Enes Kanter had a historic game in defeat by recording 23 points, 24 rebounds and seven assists.

Obama says IN voters don't want 'a yes man'
And he questioned Trump's decision to eliminate the role of cybersecurity coordinator on the National Security Council. Trump's job approval rating is basically unchanged from last month's poll among likely voters.

Jamal Murray scored a career-high 48 points to outshine Kyrie Irving, as the Denver Nuggets rallied at home to beat the Celtics 115-107. Ibaka got them by repeatedly feasting on the Lakers' porous interior defense. The second overall pick in last June's draft, Marvin Bagley III, has also had a strong part to his season, averaging 12.8 points and 6.8 rebounds per game coming off the bench for Sacramento.

But the Kings average more field goal attempts, in general, because of how fast they play, and they do so with greater accuracy than Toronto.

You know the Raptors, a team that LeBron has owned in the past.

Toronto managed to rack off two straight wins last season, but prior to that, over the span of two seasons, Toronto lost four straight. They obviously need Leonard to have any hopes of competing this season, but Lowry's ability to run the show without him in the regular season means the coaching staff can focus on keeping Leonard as fresh as possible for a potential NBA Finals run.

Britain pushes for UN Security Council action on Yemen crisis
The coalition halted a previous attempt to take the city in June, to allow space for UN-led peace consultations in Geneva. A pro-government medical source said that mortar shells landed on residential areas and caused casualties among citizens.

In those two seasons that saw the Raptors only lose to the Kings, it was a Dwane Casey-coached bunch that had a tendency to play down to the level of its competition.
