Meanwhile, the Toronto Raptors will also be looking to bounce back after having their five-game win streak snapped by the Heat in a 90-89 home loss on Tuesday. As play got chippy and Kyle Lowry exited the game with an apparent back injury (get better soon, Kyle), Brooklyn held a two-point lead with a minute to go. When Lowry is off the court, DeRozan sees a big 12% usage increase and scores 0.39 more fantasy points each minute.
The Toronto Raptors have positioned themselves as legitimate NBA Championship contenders in the Eastern Conference thanks to the sublime skills of DeMar DeRozan, Kyle Lowry and a talented supporting cast. At 28-10, these Raptors are trying to prove that they can take the next step. Jonas Valanciunas was a key piece for Toronto with 20 points and 13 rebounds. Instead, Miami players like Wayne Ellington and Goran Dragic were stealing the spotlight with their shooting, and the Heat were dominating the boards, causing the Raps to slip into a 51-41 hole by half time.
Taylor Swift's "End Game" video is a jet-set party
While Katy Perry's rumored cameo didn't ultimately materialize, Swift does share plenty of screen time with her other co-stars. Singer-songwriter Sheeran, 26, and Taylor Swift have been friends since 2013 when they met through mutual music connections.
Curry had been practically unstoppable in five games since returning from the 11-game absence with his initial ankle injury, averaging 35.2 points over that span as well as 5.6 rebounds, 5.6 assists and 1.4 steals in 32.4 minutes. He has 12 30-point performances overall this season.
Tempers flared between the two teams in a very physical game. Their relationship improved so much from Season 1 to Season 2 together that DeRozan said he nearly asked for a trade when it looked like Lowry might be dealt in 2013-14. Now the team's leader says it is time to go back to the gym and work harder and better as a team. Playing it safe is the right call, however much pain they may endure in the interim. The Raptors are hustling as a team, with every single player doing their part.
Jacksonville Jaguars CB Jalen Ramsey limited in practice
Considering how formidable the Jacksonville defense is, the best thing Pittsburgh can do is give its own offense short fields. Bortles has picked up the slack at times, but he's not a guy the Jaguars rely on week in and week out to carry the offense.
Brooklyn takes the second-most three pointers per game (33.9) while Toronto ranks fourth (32.1). Ibaka is now averaging 1.5 blocks per game. As mentioned earlier he also set the franchise record for points scored in a game at 52.
The total has gone over in four of Toronto's last five games. The Cavs trail Toronto by 2.5 games for second place in the East, and have lost five of seven and six of nine.
Police recover jewels stolen from the Ritz Paris
No one was injured, but witnesses reported hearing multiple gunshots and an officer used a Taser to stop the three suspects. Over the last few years police have kept a permanent presence in the area, but that has not deterred potential robbers.
