TORONTO - For the second straight year, Drake attempted to downplay the magnitude of an annual themed night named in his honour. Trevon Coley Jersey . Tonight, my names attached to it, but its not really about me at all, said the Toronto-born rapper and Raptors global ambassador ahead of Wednesdays Drake Night. Its just about giving the city what these guys have been giving the city all year, just an incredible, exciting evening. Last year it was mostly tongue-in-cheek. It was Jan. 11, a game against the Brooklyn Nets, which, at that point was still just another team. The Raptors, 17-17 at the time, had recently started winning some games and the city was intrigued, but skeptical. They still needed a hook. The Raptors won that night, but Drake was the main attraction. He personalized the opening introductions, gave away free shoes at halftime and when it was all said and done he flexed his bicep in what would become a memorable image, truly encapsulating the teams feel-good season. Its been just over seven months since that magical run came to an abrupt end at the hands of those same Nets, and no one has forgotten about it - not Dwane Casey, not his players and certainly not Drake, who now takes a backseat to the team he represents. Was it a happy coincidence that Drake Night happened to fall on an evening the Nets were in town, again? No. I actually got to choose the game that I wanted to be Drake Night this year, he told reporters before the game. If theres anybody that I want to beat, its the Nets. You know, I think if we have a rivalry at all, I think this would probably would be it. Obviously, Ive got much love for New York and Brooklyn but in this particular arena, at this particular moment, the one thing I want to do is knock out Brooklyn. And they did. The team did. But it wasnt a win one for Drake type of moment. The global ambassador sat quietly in his court-side seat, adjacent to Casey and Torontos bench and took in a game, a rematch that had little to do with his brand. I can only speak for myself, that Game 7 was definitely on my mind from the time I woke up this morning to even now, said Patrick Patterson following the Raptors decisive 105-89 victory over their post-season nemesis. Im definitely happy that we went out there and won the game. It was a bit of revenge in my eyes. Patterson was one of just a few Raptors that didnt downplay the connection between these two teams, admitting theres still some lingering animosity towards the club that ended their season. Casey hasnt forgotten about it either. None of them have, whether they want to fess up or not. I would say they remember but whether it motivates them or not, youd have to ask them, the Raptors coach said. I would say, I hope so. It should motivate you. It took Casey a couple months to get over that series, Game 7 and the play that sealed it - Paul Pierces block on a driving Kyle Lowry. But instead of looking back, or fading away like the Nets have - a product of aging stars, a depleted bench and Pieces move to Washington - theyve been moving forward. Yea, I think [were a better team], said Patterson, one of six players to score in double figures Wednesday and a member of the Raptors celebrated second unit. We have guys who can contribute even more off the bench. Having Lou [Williams] and James [Johnson] makes us even better. Guys have stepped their game up, guys have improved in every area. Weve improved as a team. Both teams are definitely different than when we faced each other last time. The Nets have yet to find any consistency, falling to 10-14 on the season, 1-9 in games against winning opponents. On the opposite end of the spectrum, the Raptors have reached 20 wins ahead of their Christmas break for the first time in the franchises 20-year history. Everything we’ve done as a growing team and you see we have a lot of areas where we can improve, said Casey. In the first quarter, his team resembled the young, awestruck bunch from most of last years seven-game series. The Nets shot 59 per cent in the frame, scoring 30 points and Toronto trailed by as many as 11 early on. But thats when their experience and added depth seemed to kick in. Williams came in and scored his nightly 10-plus points, a luxury they didnt have last spring. Johnson did what he was brought in to do, bodying up with Joe Johnson, Brooklyns playoff hero. And then theres Kyle Lowry, who scored a team-high 20 points on 13 shots, adding 12 assists. Shoulda, coulda, woulda, Casey said after the game, refusing to revisionist history. If ifs and buts were candies and nuts, we’d all have a Merry Christmas, right? You can’t look backwards, you have to look forward. I don’t think I can influence how much energy they’re going to play with, Drake had acknowledged before his night. They’re going to come out and do what they do and play as hard as they possibly can every night. Now, the Raptors are in the spotlight - the team, its players, their accomplishments. Its their show. The global ambassador will happily settle for opening act responsibilities. Nate Orchard Jersey .com) - The San Antonio Spurs will try to even their series with the Dallas Mavericks Monday night when the two teams collide at American Airlines Arena for Game 4. Marcus Martin Jersey . Manager Ryan Nelsen has confirmed Brazilian No. 1 Julio Cesar will be rested for Wednesdays first leg of the semifinal. That opens the door for Bendik, who started 33 games for Toronto last season. http://www.footballbrownsnflprostore.com/Youth-Jason-McCourty-Elite-Jersey/ . Mike Vecchione tied it at 2 with 4:01 left in the first, Saskatoon native Eli Lichtenwald gave the Dutchman the lead 57 seconds later, and Daniel Ciampini capped the spree with 2:57 to go. MIAMI -- LeBron James dispensed with his menacing black mask at the NBAs request and switched to a clear protective cover for the Miami Heats game Saturday night against the Orlando Magic. The black mask made its debut Thursday night in James first game since he broke his nose. He said he received word from league officials Friday that they wanted him to instead wear something that would allow opponents to see his face. "Its not a league rule, but its the leagues request that you dont wear the black one," James said before Saturdays game. "The reasons they told me didnt make sense to me, but Im just a player. I will abide by the request." James scored 20 points to help the Heat earn their seventh consecutive victory, 112-98. Heat coach Erik Spoelstra said NBA Commissioner Adam Silver spoke Friday with Nick Arison, son of the team owner, about the matter. James said he didnt want to make a big issue of it. "Im good with the NBA," James said with a smile. Kevin Zeitler Jersey. "I am not against the NBA. I had a request, and I fulfilled it." Teammate Dwyane Wade said he warned James the league would give the black mask a thumbs-down. "I told him after Thursdays game, You have fun, because it aint happening the next game," Wade said. "It was fun. A lot of attention, a lot of T-shirts are going to be made, a lot of Instagram posts. Now we move on to something else." James agreed that the black mask was a marketing success, with feedback he received universally positive. He said he may give the mask to charity so it can be auctioned off. "Everyone loved it," James said. "I got stuff, from You look very menacing, to You look like a superhero, to You look amazing. A little bit of everything. No one told me it was terrible." Not even league officials. "I think they loved it as well," James said.
