It was a special night for forward Cedric Paquette,

SACRAMENTO, Calif. Alcides Escobar White Jersey . -- Rudy Gay said he didnt harbour a sense of revenge Wednesday night facing his former team -- the Toronto Raptors-- for the first time since a December trade. His numbers said it all. DeMarcus Cousins had 25 points and 10 rebounds, Gay added 24 points and 10 rebounds, and the Kings held off the Raptors in the fourth quarter for a 109-101 victory. The Dec. 9 trade brought Gay, Quincy Acy and Aaron Gray to Sacramento in exchange for Patterson, John Salmons, Greivis Vasquez and Chuck Hayes. The trade has worked well for both teams. Since the shake-up, the Raptors have compiled an 18-11 record and own the third best overall record in the Eastern Conference. They had an 8-12 mark before the deal. Gay has thrived in his role as a key figure offensively. The versatile forward has averaged 20.7 points and shot 53 per cent in his first 25 games with the Kings. Gay wasnt nearly as effective with the Raptors, shooting just under 39 per cent in his second season in Toronto. "It was great to see Rudy have such a successful game tonight," said Gray, who didnt play. "No matter what the scenario, its really important when you go against your ex-team. You always want to show them what theyre missing. I think Rudy did that." Toronto coach Dwane Casey wished his team was a little more focused on effort rather than the socializing that took place between the two teams. "I just thought our whole disposition was off. Were out there hugging and giving out fives and all that," Casey said. "Well, this is a business. I didnt think our disposition at the beginning of the game was in fighting mode or hungry mode. We havent done anything, Ill keep repeating this, we havent done anything in this league yet." The Kings led by 20 points going into the final quarter, when Toronto got going offensively and cut the lead to five points with under a minute to play. But the Kings converted six consecutive free throws in the final minute to seal their second straight victory after losing seven straight. "I think we kept our composure, were very poised down the stretch, and came out with a good home victory," Cousins said. Kyle Lowry had 21 points, eight assists and seven rebounds for the Raptors, who had won four of their last five. Demar DeRozan scored 18 points, Patrick Patterson 14 and Steve Novak 12, all in the fourth quarter. DeRozan, who entered the game averaging 22 points, shot 5 of 17. He added six rebounds and four assists. Novak played only 34 seconds through three quarters, but in the fourth he hit three three-pointers, helping the Raptors outscore the Kings 29-17. "The game was bizarre; we made it interesting," Kings coach Michael Malone said. "Im glad they didnt play Steve Novak more or it would have been a long night." Isaiah Thomas added 23 points for the Kings and guard Marcus Thornton had 12, all in the first half. Thornton hit the floor hard at the offensive end late in the second quarter and didnt return. He bruised hip and knee in the fall, but X-rays were negative. He may get an MRI on Thursday. New NBA Commissioner Adam Silver, who took over for David Stern on Saturday as the leagues fifth commissioner, attended the game. He drew a standing ovation when he was introduced to the sellout crowd Before the game, Silver toured Sacramentos planned downtown arena and sat with the Kings new ownership group during a portion of the game. NOTES: The Kings played without reserve forward Derrick Williams, who was out with a strained right foot. ... Despite shooting 37.5 per cent in the first quarter, Sacramento still led 30-23. ... Lowry was called for a technical midway through the second quarter. ... Sacramento Mayor Kevin Johnson, a former NBA star, sat courtside with William Bell, the mayor of Birmingham, Ala. Omar Infante Jersey . That further limits the options of Australia coach Ewen McKenzie, who on Monday suspended six players who were involved in a night out in Dublin ahead of the Saturdays 32-15 win over the Irish. The Wallabies play Scotland on Saturday before facing Wales on Nov. Salvador Perez Black Jersey . Luongo will not get the start when the Canucks host the Ottawa Senators in the Heritage Classic at BC Place Stadium on Sunday. "I dont want to start going through this whole thing again," said Luongo, who has yet to start for the Canucks since returning from the Olympics.(SportsNetwork.com) - The Tampa Bay Lightning hope that a perfect homestand can translate into some road success on Saturday night as they shoot for a rare victory in Columbus over the Blue Jackets. The Lightning netted 20 goals during a 4-0-0 homestand, capping the residency with a 5-2 win over the Calgary Flames. It was a special night for forward Cedric Paquette, who scored his first two NHL goals. Paquette appeared in his seventh career game as he was recalled from the American Hockey League on Wednesday following an upper-body injury to Alex Killorn. He opened the scoring 9:55 into the game and added his second goal just over a minute into the second frame. I knew I was able to score at this level, Paquette said. Brian Boyle, Tyler Johnson and Valtteri Filppula also scored and Ben Bishop made 29 saves in the win, Tampa Bays sixth in seven games. It hasnt won five straight since March 13-20. The Lightning will play the second contest of a three-game road trip on Sunday in Detroit, so it is unknown if Bishop or backup Evgeni Nabokov will start tonight. Nabokov has excellent career numbers in this matchup, going 20-5-3 with a 1.79 goals against average, .932 save percentage and four shutouts in 29 meetings. Bishop, meanwhile, is 1-1-0 against Columbus wiith a 1. Bo Jackson Grey Jersey. 06 GAA and .951 save percentage in two games with one start. Though Tampa Bay has won four of its past six versus the Blue Jackets, it has only two victories and one tie in eight all-time trips to Columbus. The Blue Jackets, though, have not been able to win at home or on the road as of late. They dropped a 3-2 decision in overtime last night to the Carolina Hurricanes for their seventh loss in a row. Each of the previous six setbacks had come in regulation. Carolina got the winner with 38 seconds left in overtime on the power play as David Savard took a holding penalty. That gave the Hurricanes their seventh chance on the man advantage in the game. We cant keep doing this to ourselves, said Blue Jackets head coach Todd Richards of the penalty. Its not a good recipe as far as winning hockey games. Scott Hartnell had both goals for the Blue Jackets, while Curtis McElhinney made 32 saves in the loss. Another loss for the Blue Jackets tonight would give the club its worst skid since it began the 2011-12 season 0-7-1. With No. 1 netminder Sergei Bobrovsky still out with a fractured finger, Anton Forsberg could make his second career start tonight. He gave up three goals on 29 shots in a loss to New Jersey last Saturday. Cheap Jerseys Wholesale Jerseys Wholesale Jerseys Cheap Jerseys Cheap NFL JerseysCheap Jerseys China Wholesale Jerseys ' ' '
