Portland and Blazers fans will hope

BOSTON -- Jared Sullinger scored 25 points and grabbed a career-best 20 rebounds, Avery Bradley had 20 points and the Boston Celtics held on to snap a nine-game losing streak with an 88-83 victory over the Toronto Raptors on Wednesday night. Adidas Superstar 2 Mujer Baratas . Jeff Green scored 13 points and Kris Humphries 12 for the Celtics, who nearly blew an 18-point, second-half lead. Sullingers 20-20 was the first by a Celtics player since Kevin Garnetts first game in Boston in 2007. Garnett was dealt -- along with Paul Pierce -- to Brooklyn during the off-season. DeMar DeRozan scored 23 points and Kyle Lowry had 18 with 12 assists for Toronto, which lost for just the third time in 11 games. Trailing 73-56 entering the final quarter, the Raptors scored 18 of the first 22 points to close the gap to 77-74 on Steve Novaks 3 from the left corner with 4 1/2 minutes to play. Boston missed 13 of its first 15 shots in the opening eight minutes of the fourth. The Raptors nailed three 3-pointers as they made their charge, with Novak hitting two and John Salmons the other. After Toronto cut it to three, Green scored on a drive, hit one free throw and Sullinger nailed two from the line and Boston had enough to hold off the Raptors. Toronto had it down to 81-78, but DeRozan lost the ball on a drive with about 40 seconds left. Sullinger went 4 or 4 from the line in the final 30 seconds. Boston led by four at halftime and pushed it to 53-44 on Sullingers one-handed flip in the lane five minutes into the third quarter and used a 18-5 run late to open a 71-53 advantage on Sullingers putback with 25 seconds left in the quarter. Sullingers turnaround, 13-footer gave the Celtics a 73-56 after three. The Celtics won for just the second time in 14 games on a day they shook up their roster a bit more. Earlier Wednesday, Boston sent guards Jordan Crawford and MarShon Brooks to Golden State in a three-team trade, getting back centre Joel Anthony from Miami, a conditional future Philadelphia first round draft pick, the Heats 2016 second round pick and cash. Last week, they were also part of a three-team trade, shipping guard Courtney Lee to Memphis and getting guard Jerryd Bayless in return. But they could have starting point guard Rajon Rondo back in action as soon as Fridays game against the Los Angeles Lakers. He went through a workout on Wednesday and was dressed in warmups, sitting on the bench after going through drills just before tip-off. Hes been sidelined since tearing his anterior cruciate ligament in his right knee last Jan. 25. The fans were chanting "Rondo! Rondo!" with 2 1/2 minutes left in the game. Neither team led by more than five points in a first quarter that had 12 lead changes. It stayed like that in the second when it swapped nine times before Bradleys basket and two free throws in the closing minute gave the Celtics a 45-41 halftime edge. NOTES: Celtics reserve guard Keith Bogans has been excused from the team for unspecified personal reasons. "I dont want to get into specifics. Hes excused from the team right now," Celtics coach Brad Stevens said before the game. "I personally like Keith. Thats where Ill leave it." Asked if he expected home to return Stevens said: "Undecided. Unknown." ... The Raptors beat the Celtics at home on opening night in the only other meeting this season. They play again March 26 and 28, the first date in Boston. ... Toronto fell to 10-3 when it hits 10 or more 3s after hitting 11. ... Bradley bruised his right hand early in the game, went to the locker room, but returned to the floor in the second quarter. ... Raptors forward Amir Johnson tweaked his ankle in the third, had it taped and returned. Adidas Adicolor Blancas . The Pacers rallied from 17 points down in the first half and almost wiped out another double-digit deficit after halftime, but had the same offensive troubles late that plagued them early in the game. Paul George had 27 points and 11 rebounds to lead the Pacers, who stayed a game and a half up on Miami for the lead in the Eastern Conference after the Heat lost in overtime to Chicago. Yeezy Boost 350 Precio España . Brown was shown a red card for clipping the Brazilian as he lay on the ground during Barcelonas 1-0 win in Glasgow on Oct. 1. UEFA said its disciplinary panel increased the automatic one-match ban to a three-match sanction.FIVE QUICK NBA THOUGHTS:     1. LANDRY FIELDS (Raptors): He is looking much more comfortable each time I watch him play. Thats a good development for a guy that had injury issues/surgery to deal with last year. He lost his shot mechanics and, in many ways, his confidence. His shot release is still a bit slow but in time it will get better. Hell have to be conscious of that when he takes perimeter shots and make sure he has time to set himself up and get it off. His shot preparation will be very important. Hes a smart, team oriented player and does all the little things that coaches love and has a winning personality/approach. Too often folks focus on the contract - its not his fault that he got the deal he was offered, and who wouldnt take it? Bottom line for the Raptors, to compete for a playoff spot this year theyre going to have to find some consistent productivity from their second unit (an area of concern right now) and Fields is a guy that you hope can be ready to contribute. 2. REGGIE JACKSON (Thunder): Talk about a guy whos on the radar this year in OKC. With the trade of James Harden and the free agent departure of Kevin Martin to the Timberwolves, Kevin Durant and Russell Westbrook will need some heavy perimeter support to make up the difference and keep their team at a high level. In his third NBA season out of Boston College, this is the year you have your fingers crossed his level of play is elevated and reliable. Hes got solid versatility in his game, has decent shot making ability and hell compete for you on the defensive end. Now its all got to come together and quick. Usually in the third pro season you find out an awful lot about a guy with the growth of his skills, strength, and basketball IQ. You focus on his dedication and overall makeup and whether hes got what it takes to take that next step. Time has arrived and hes going to get a shot each night. Take advantage. 3. LA CLIPPERS: The Clippers have decided to cover the Lakers Championship banners and retired numbers when they play their home games at the Staples Center. This has caused quite a stir and to be perfectly frank it should have happened the day they started playing games at the arena. Theyve been the JV team in LA for too long and they owe the Lakers organization and their former greats absolutely nothing. Nike Roshe Run Blancas Baratas. Theyre a tenant of the arena just like the Lakers and can do whatever theyd like when its their building. Its their money and their time. I always wondered why they would ever even acknowledge the other team. This is competition; its ruthless and thats the way it would be if the shoe was on the other foot, thats for sure. 4. CHARLIE VILLANUEVA (Pistons): Villanueva will be starting his ninth NBA season next week and the question is if hell ever play at a consistently productive level as a pro. Hes coming off two poor seasons in Detroit where he averaged 7 ppg and 3.5 rpg while shooting an abysmal 38% from the field for a lousy team. Are you part of the solution or part of the problem? Ill never forget a conversation I had with an NBA College Scouting Director when he was a player at UConn. He said that Villanueva would end up playing for at least 4-5 NBA teams and be one of those guys that youd be fascinated by his skills and potential and yet always be frustrated that you never got the high level nights enough. After former Raptors GM Rob Babcock drafted him in controversial fashion hes had stints as well with the Bucks and now the Pistons. I like him, hes a good guy and not a problem player, yet hes just not getting it done. At age 29, its time. Now or never. 5. THOMAS ROBINSON (Blazers): Robinson is in his second season and already on his third NBA team after playing his rookie year in Sacramento and Houston. Is this another guy who will bounce around and not fulfill his potential? Honestly, I dont know yet. He averaged an underwhelming 4.8 ppg and 4.5 rpg in his rookie year; thats not going to make anyone happy for a lottery pick out of Kansas. I liked him in college yet I was a bit concerned with his size and still unpolished game. He reminds me of Truck Robinson (Im dating myself!) who had a good career (15 and 9) in his best days with Washington, Phoenix and New York. He needs to focus on being a terror on the glass and the other stuff will work itself out. Hell get a shot at good playing time in Portland and Blazers fans will hope the light comes on this season and he takes that significant jump as a player. Cheap Jerseys Wholesale Jerseys Wholesale Jerseys Cheap Jerseys Cheap NFL JerseysCheap Jerseys China Wholesale Jerseys ' ' '
