The Toronto Raptors close out a four-game homestand Sunday afternoon as they welcome the recently streaking Denver Nuggets to the Air Canada Centre. Mark Teixeira Jersey . Toronto is 1-2 on their current homestand following Fridays 90-83 loss to the two-time defending NBA champion Miami Heat. You can listen to the game on TSN Radio 1050 at 1pm et. The Nuggets are on a five-game winning streak. LeBron James led the Heat with 27 points in the game against the Raptors on Friday. DeMar DeRozan scored 25 points to lead the hosts and Rudy Gay ended with 21 and 11 rebounds. Kyle Lowry posted 15 points for a squad that committed 21 turnovers, leading to 26 Miami points. Toronto shot 38.4 percent and made only eight of its 30 3-point attempts. The Raptors struggled at the foul line, too, making 19-of-32. "Free throws, that was the story," said Raptors forward Tyler Hansbrough. "We have to do a better job, myself included." After Toronto, which is 3-5 up north, hosts the Nuggets, it will head west for three games against Golden State, Phoenix and the Los Angeles Lakers. DeRozan leads the NBA in scoring with 28.0 points since November 15 and is averaging 23.4 ppg at home. Gay is posting an average of 19.0 ppg in his previous five and has at least one block in eight games in a row. Sundays game between Toronto and Denver is the first of two this season. The Nuggets will host the Raptors on Jan. 31 and both teams split two meetings in 2012-13. The Nuggets have won 10 of 12 and 15 of the past 18 matchups with Toronto. The Nuggets made it five wins in a row with Fridays 97-95 edging of the lowly New York Knicks, as Randy Foye finished with 17 points and defended Carmelo Anthonys 14-foot turnaround jumper with 2.1 seconds left. "Much respect to Carmelo, but at the end of the game, I realize were fighting for our lives," Foye told NBA.com. "Im just saying to myself, Im going to make him take a tough shot, no matter what. If he makes it over me with a hand up, I can live with it. But I cant live with giving him an easy shot, just because hes Carmelo." Ty Lawson led Denver with 22 points, Nate Robinson netted 16 off the bench and both Wilson Chandler and J.J. Hickson scored 13 points. Hickson also grabbed a game-best 11 rebounds for the Nuggets, who shot 43.7 percent, but struggled from 3-point range (9-of-24). Nuggets forward Kenneth Faried left the game in the third quarter with a contusion of his quadriceps and had four points and six rebounds. The Nuggets hope Faried will be able to make the trip and he is questionable Sunday. Lawson has scored 10 or more points in all 15 of his games for the Nuggets, who are 9-3 since an 0-3 start. A six-game winning streak at home has helped. Denver has won back-to-back road games and will also visit Brooklyn, Cleveland, Boston, Philadelphia and Washington on the trek. Denver is 3-4 outside the Rockies this season. Dellin Betances Jersey . And theyre pointing to the NHLs biggest market: Toronto. With Gretzky paid out for what is believed to be $7 to 8 million, Gretzky may be eager to get back into the NHL and TSN Hockey Insider Darren Dreger reports that the Maple Leafs are very much interested in The Great Ones services. Custom New York Yankees Jersey . - Hitting was supposed to be the Pittsburgh Pirates weakness coming into the season yet they lead the major leagues in home runs through the first 16 games of the season. http://www.baseballyankeesonline.us/black-13-alex-rodriguez-womens-jersey/ . Inter moved five points behind fourth-place Fiorentina and eight points behind third-place Napoli, which visits relegation-threatened Sassuolo on Sunday.ALAMEDA, Calif. - The Oakland Raiders responded to their first win of the season with their most lopsided loss in more than a half-century.Interim coach Tony Sparano wants to make sure there isnt a repeat after the Raiders won their second game by beating the San Francisco 49ers 24-13 on Sunday.Sparano gave the players the day off Monday and said when they return to practice on Wednesday the focus for the Raiders (2-11) will solely be on this weeks game at Kansas City (7-6).We need to make sure that we just focus on us right now going into this, Sparano said. We need to understand and learn from what happened to us two weeks ago. Like I said, there is a reason why I said, Dont forget this feeling because here we are again.After opening the season with 10 straight losses, the Raiders got their first win by beating the Chiefs 24-20 at home on Nov. 20. Despite the talk about wanting to build on that win instead of just savoring it, the Raiders came out the following week and lost 52-0 at St Louis, their most lopsided defeat since a 55-0 loss to Houston in the 1961 season opener.Sparano said he sensed problems early in the preparation week for the Rams game and that changes to the practice schedule because of Thanksgiving might have contributed.Those are some of the things that I didnt feel like I handled well during that week, probably could have looked at that a little differently, he said. Today was their atta boy day, and when we get in here on Wednesday well be moving right on to Kansas City.The win over the 49ers was probably Oaklands most complete in years. Rookie Derek Carr threw three touchdown passes and faced little prressure from San Franciscos formidable front. Johnny Damon Yankees Jersey. The Raiders also put heavy pressure on Colin Kaepernick, making a season-high five sacks and intercepting two passes.It all added up to a victory against their Bay Area rivals that puts a bright note on a rough season.People had us dead and buried last week, Sparano said. I mean, we were done. It was 52-0, everybody quit. This team is a resilient team. Ive said it all along. For some reason or another, nobody wants to listen, but Ive been saying it. This is the type of team they are and well decide when that time comes. That time is not now.With two wins in the past three games, Sparano is making a case to shed the interim label he got after replacing the fired Dennis Allen in September.Sparano said he knew those questions would be coming, but that someone above him would have to answer. Owner Mark Davis and general manager Reggie McKenzie have not addressed the coaching situation since Allen was fired.I was given a job to do several weeks ago, Sparano said. Im trying to do the job the way that I know how to do the job.NOTES: Sparano said he feared the worst when CB Tarell Brown went down with what looked like a serious leg injury in the second quarter. But Brown missed only three plays all game. Hes pretty tough, Sparano said. ... Sparano said he plans to talk to LB Sio Moore about an Instagram post that called Kaepernick a chump. I need to visit with Sio, find out exactly what went on, but I know there was a lot of jawing going on out there and it wasnt just one-sided, Sparano said.___Online:AP NFL website: www.pro32.ap.org and www.twitter.com/AP_NFL Cheap NFL Jerseys Wholesale Jerseys Wholesale NFL Jerseys Jerseys From China Wholesale NFL Jerseys Cheap NFL Jerseys Cheap Jerseys ' ' '
