TORONTO – Dwane Casey wants to see his Toronto Raptors return to being a simple team. The one from last season that captured the imagination of Raptors fans everywhere; the one from earlier this season that was the best in the Eastern Conference for 60 days. Everybody, every time we walked on the floor, had no agenda. Their heart was in the right place, both feet in the circle, said Casey after practice on Saturday. I think success sometimes gets things blurred a little bit. Thats what we talked about today getting back to the team concept. Everybody in the circle. Following a 110-89 loss to the Eastern Conference-leading Atlanta Hawks, the Raptors held a brief practice Saturday. I think everybody has a sense of urgency right now, said Amir Johnson. We know we have to pick it up. I think everybody is ready to start playing. Success causes you to overlook the little things a little bit, said Casey. As a coach Ive been preaching it... for the whole two months I was talking about how much we had to do the little things. From here on in, we are going to get back to the basics. We have to. If not the guys who are not doing it, are not going to be on the floor. Atlanta made it look easy on Friday, shooting 61 per cent from the field, while Toronto committed 19 turnovers. Since the calendar turned to 2015, the Raptors have lost six of eight (with wins coming against Philadelphia and Boston). They have given up 100 or more points in the five losses this month. A six-game homestand comes to an end Sunday (against the Pelicans) and the best the Raptors can do is a 3-3 record. In Fridays loss to the Hawks, the Raptors starters were outscored 75-53. Terrence Ross in particular has struggled recently, scoring just seven points in the last two games, and has failed to reach double figures in points in four of his last five games. Jonas Valanciunas also struggled against Al Horford, managing to score four points. Is it time to make a change to the starting unit? Thats one thing we talk about but again, what are you going to do, throw Terrence Ross away? said the head coach. Its not one guy, its not two guys its our overall play hard approach – first unit, second unit. Weve talked about it. It hasnt come to that time yet. We have confidence in all those guys. Again, like Ive always said - like I said in the playoffs last year – T Ross is a young kid, JV is a young kid. All of our numbers probably dont give them a lot of credit. But they are still learning. There is a lot of room for growth. So you run the risk of possibly losing one of the young kids if you sit them down too quick. The Raptors are facing some adversity right now. They entered play on Saturday 5 1/2 games back of Atlanta for top spot in the East. Toronto sits in third place with the Chicago Bulls challenging for that position. Casey was an assistant coach with the Dallas Mavericks in 2011 when they won the NBA championship. In January of that season, the Mavericks went in a slump that saw them lose seven of eight. We thought the world was coming to an end, recalled Casey. That adversity propelled us to win a championship. If everybody pulls together, do what they are supposed to do, learn from adversity the right way then you will be successful. We will learn from this. It is not panic time but it is time to get our nose dirty. Its not about xs and os. Its about playing hard and getting dirty and being who you are on the floor. Mets Jerseys 2019 . Certainly not Monday night. George Hill took care of the early work, scoring a season-high 26 points, and Paul George closed it out by scoring 11 of his 26 points during a decisive second-half stretch that finally allowed Indiana to pull away from Minnesota 98-84 for yet another win. Cheap Mets Jerseys . Hes the same player he always was, only now his efforts are being rewarded. The rookie manager has made a habit of heaping praise on others when things are going well, and accepting criticism when they arent. But in the case of Hurtado, its what the coach is NOT saying that may be the secret to a superb run of form. https://www.cheapmetsjerseys.us/ . Webb birdied the 18th hole to take the outright lead, then watched as Choi, who shot a course-record 62 on Saturday to take a share of the third-round lead, pushed a 10-foot putt wide of the hole at 18 to miss the chance for a playoff.

Wholesale Mets Jerseys . -- Tony Finau won the Stonebrae Classic on Sunday for his first Web.If Jonathan Bernier is forced to miss a sixth straight game on Tuesday night with a groin strain, the Maple Leafs will be forced to decide between starting James Reimer or Drew MacIntyre in net. Reimer has started five straight games since relieving an injured Bernier against the Kings on Mar. 13. However, after a strong performance against Los Angeles, Reimer has struggled mightily. Through his five games started, Reimer has allowed 12 goals on 75 shots (.840 save percentage) with his team losing every time out. Starting back-to-back nights for the second time in less than week, Reimer allowed three goals to the New Jersey Devils on 10 shots SSunday night.ddddddddddddMacIntrye entered in relief of Reimer early in the second period and stopped all 12 shots he faced. Still, the Leafs fell 3-2. Unless Bernier proves ready for action, the Leafs will be forced to decide whether to turn back to Reimer or to give MacIntyre the first start of his NHL career against the best team in the Western Conference, the St. Louis Blues. Leafs head coach Randy Carlyle said on Monday that hes not certain when Bernier will be ready to return, but said that hes making progress. With their playoff hopes slipping, who should the Leafs turn to Tuesday night, Reimer or MacIntyre? As always, its Your! Call. ' ' '
