SALT LAKE CITY - Without DeMar DeRozan in the lineup, Kyle Lowry understands he has a greater responsibility to score when Toronto needs quick baskets.Lowry scored a season-high 39 points on 13-of-22 shooting to help the Raptors beat Utah 123-104 on Wednesday night, handing the Jazz their seventh straight loss.Greivis Vasquez and Lou Williams each had 17 for the Raptors, who had six players score in double figures. None had a bigger impact than Lowry, who is averaging 26.3 points in eight road games this season.I know I got to score a little bit more and be more aggressive, Lowry said. I could do it with DeMar (healthy), but as a point guard, I like to get my teammates involved. Right now, I got to be a little bit more assertive.Derrick Favors and Enes Kanter scored 19 points apiece for Utah. Gordon Hayward added 16 points and Trey Burke had 15 and eight assists for the Jazz, who trailed through the final three quarters.Toronto faced little defensive resistance. The Raptors shot 45 of 79 overall, including 12 of 21 on 3-pointers, and won their sixth consecutive game this season when shooting at least 50 per cent.We came in to take care of business, Toronto coach Dwane Casey said. There wasnt any laughing and joking around. Guys came in with a focused attitude to start the game.The teams traded baskets for most of the first quarter and the Jazz led 20-18 after Kanter converted a three-point play with 3:21 left in the period.The Raptors began hitting shots all over the floor at that point to take control. Williams made a pair of baskets to start and finish a 9-2 run that gave the Raptors a 31-24 lead going into the second quarter.Toronto then scored on eight of its first nine possessions in the second quarter and by the time Lowry capped that stretch with a 3-pointer, they led 50-32.We set good screens to get each other open, Toronto forward Patrick Patterson said. We were able to draw fouls and get to the free throw line. We hit shots. We didnt have that many assists, but the opportunities we had at the rim and the opportunities we created for ourselves, we capitalized on and finished.Utah used an 11-2 run to cut Torontos lead down to nine early in the third, closing to 71-62 on Haywards jumper.The Jazz drew within nine several times in the quarter but could get no closer. After Utah cut it to nine a final time on a layup by Hayward that made it 84-75 with 4:24 remaining in the third, Toronto pulled away for good.Williams made six free throws to fuel an 8-0 spurt that gave the Raptors a 92-75 lead with 3:00 left in the quarter.TIP-INSRaptors: The Raptors swept the season series with Utah for the second straight year and just the third time in franchise history. ... Lowry has scored at least 20 points in four straight contests and six of Torontos last eight games. ... Vasquezs 17 points marked a season-high. He has now scored in double figures over five straight games.Jazz: Shooting guard Alec Burks did not play after injuring his left shoulder against Denver on Monday. ... The Jazz used their fourth-youngest starting lineup in team history. Utahs five starters average age was 22 years, 351 days old. . Derrick Favors matched his career high with five assists to go with 19 points and six rebounds. . Utah committed a season-low eight turnovers.DEFENSIVE WOES: Torontos 123 points were the most an opponent has scored on Utah this season. The Jazz are allowing 103.2 points per game and are 2-10 when giving up at least 100 points. Its just a mental thing, Favors said. Everybody is trying to learn the defensive system and try to do the right thing, but I think its just a mental thing.CLOSING OUT: Toronto improved to 13-0 this season when leading after three quarters. The Raptors are 48-2 dating to the start of the 2013-14 season when leading entering the fourth quarter. It shows our ability to stay focused, Lowry said. Were taking advantage of the opportunities that we have when we have a lead.UP NEXTRaptors: Host Cleveland on Friday.Jazz: Host Orlando on Friday. Jimmy Graham Youth Jersey . -- Kansas City Royals first baseman Eric Hosmer will be out three to six weeks with a stress fracture of the third finger of his right hand.

United on Saturday, March 22 at 4:30 p. .com) - Eric Fehrs goal 42 seconds into overtime lifted the Washington Capitals to a 5-4 come-from-behind victory over Columbus, halting the Blue Jackets seven-game win streak. Marshawn Lynch Seahawks Jersey . -- The Chicago Bears say they have agreed to a one-year contract with centre Roberto Garza. Steve Largent Youth Jersey .The other side of the Bruins special teams unit delivered in the end.Gregory Campbell netted the game-winner with less than 10 minutes remaining and the Bruins fended off a late four-minute San Jose power play to earn a wild 5-3 win over the Sharks.PITTSBURGH, Pa. - Ben Roethlisberger doesnt need to bother with the math, not matter how simple the equation.The Pittsburgh Steelers quarterback understands a win over Kansas City on Sunday sends his team back to the playoffs for the first time in three years. If Roethlisberger is being honest though, the post-season truly began a month ago.Weve kind of had that mentality for the last couple weeks that its time to get hot and play our best football, Roethlisberger said.Anything less and the Steelers (9-5) will be home in January yet again. At least Pittsburgh has some wiggle room. A loss and Kansas City (8-6) will need a victory over San Diego in the regular season finale and plenty of help.Quarterback Alex Smith would just as soon not have to spend the last Sunday of the year staring at a scoreboard during timeouts.You have been working hard to put yourself in this position, Smith said. You wanted the stages to get bigger and bigger and be more meaningful and here we are.How long the Chiefs stay there will depend on if they can slow down the NFLs top-ranked offence, one led by a guy who knows a thing or two about the Chiefs.Pittsburgh offensive co-ordinator Todd Haley spent two-plus seasons as Kansas City head coach from 2009-11, leading the Chiefs to an unlikely AFC West title in 2010 before it all fell apart.Haley has resurrected his career calling plays for the Steelers, who are poised to lead the league in total yardage for only the second time in team history behind Roethlisberger, wide receiver Antonio Brown and running back LeVeon Bell.Its heady territory for a franchise traditionally built from the defence up. Not so much anymore. If anything, its the Chiefs who have adopted Pittsburghs formula for success.Kansas City relies on steady if unflashy play from Smith, a one-two punch of Jamaal Charles and Knile Davis at running back and a swarming front seven led by outside linebacker Justin Houston, whose 17 sacks are tied for the NFL lead.Houston is close friends with Steelers linebacker Jarvis Jones, a bond forged when they played together at Georgia. Houston serves as a mentor of sorts to Jones, who has dealt with injuries issues in his first two years in the league. Jones describes Houston as a freak and one who happens to have something Jones has yet to experience: a playoff game. Jones can fix that problem on Sunday.ddddddddddddIts starting to come together, Jones said. A lot of us young guys, this is our first go-round with this. Its why were here and we hope were ready.Other things to look for as the Chiefs search for their first victory in Pittsburgh since 1986.DO IT ALL: Charles has been one of the NFLs most versatile backs in his seven seasons in the league. Pittsburghs LeVeon Bell appears ready to join the group. Bell is second in the AFC in yards rushing and second in the NFL in total offence. The one thing Bell is still learning to do is finish drives. Thats never been a problem for Charles, who has 14 total touchdowns.PLAYING IT SAFE: Kansas City tight end Travis Kelce has been dynamic with the ball in his hands. The problem is making sure it stays there. Kelce has four fumbles this season, including a costly mistake against Arizona two weeks ago that cost the Chiefs a shot at a victory.BROWN DELIVERS: Antonio Brown is nine receptions away from the second-greatest season by a receiver in league history. Brown already has a club-record 115 catches this year, remarkable considering the massive amount of attention he receives.You name it theyve tried it, Steelers coach Mike Tomlin said. But its a testament to him. But not only just him but the balance that weve been able to strike with our offence.GETTING HEALTHY: The Steelers have been forced to get creative with their linebackers. Jones, James Harrison and Ryan Shazier have all missed extended time due to various injuries, but they are all expected to play against the Chiefs. That should give defensive co-ordinator Dick LeBeau with plenty of fresh legs to experiment with as Pittsburgh tries to disrupt Kansas Citys methodical offence.ONE DIMENSIONAL: Kansas Citys inability to throw touchdown passes to wide receivers has become a bit of a running joke. A Chiefs wideout hasnt scored in a regular-season game in more than a year, though thats hardly slowed Kansas City down. If anything, it makes the effectiveness of Charles and Davis even more impressive.The fact that theyre still winning games and havent been able to have passing touchdowns like that, it shows that theyre a very resourceful team, Steelers linebacker Arthur Moats said.___AP NFL website: and Cheap NFL Jerseys Wholesale Jerseys Wholesale NFL Jerseys Jerseys From China Wholesale NFL Jerseys Cheap NFL Jerseys Cheap Jerseys Cheap Jerseys ' ' '
