(SportsNetwork.com) - The Atlantic Division-leading Toronto Raptors will start a quick trip Sunday against the Minnesota Timberwolves. The Raptors will also visit Brooklyn and are 16-14 on the road. Toronto has won two straight and eight of its last 10 games, and is coming off Fridays 99-87 triumph over Sacramento. Terrence Ross went 6-of-8 from beyond the arc and scored 18 points, while DeMar DeRozan and Patrick Patterson had 15 points apiece. Jonas Valanciunas scored 14 and Kyle Lowry had 12 points and seven assists. The game marked the return of Rudy Gay, who was dealt to the Kings back in December. The Raptors have played well since the trade and are third in the Eastern Conference. Toronto, which is 29-7 when holding teams under 100 points, matched last seasons win total of 34. It is trying to go nine games over .500 for the first time since the end of 2006-07. Minnesota will resume a four-game homestand Sunday and is 1-1 so far. It lost to New York in the opener of the stay, but bounced back with Fridays 114-101 win over Detroit. Kevin Love posted 28 points and 14 rebounds, while Kevin Martin added 24 points and Nikola Pekovic had 17 along with nine rebounds for the Timberwolves, winners in seven of nine games. "We have to have more discipline in what we do. I dont care what the score is. That is what we have to learn. It has hurt us in the past and it will hurt us again if we arent aware of the time and the score," Wolves head coach Rick Adelman said. Ricky Rubio tallied 11 points, nine assists and eight boards in the win. Minnesota is five games off a playoff spot and 17-12 in the Twin Cities. It will close the homestand Tuesday versus Milwaukee. The TWolves dropped a 94-89 decision at Toronto on Jan. 17 and have lost five straight and 17 of the last 18 meetings between the teams. The Raptors are 7-1 in the previous eight visits to Target Center. <a href="http://www.acmilansoccershop.com/c-12-cristian-zapata-ac-milan-fc-jersey.aspx">Cristian Zapata Jersey</a>.C. - The Carolina Hurricanes hope they now have the leadership tandem in place to turn the franchise around. <a href="http://www.acmilansoccershop.com/c-55-nikola-kalinic-ac-milan-fc-jersey.aspx">Nikola Kalinic Jersey</a>. And I wanted to take this opportunity to share some of my experiences gained through International competition and the 1998 Winter Olympics in Nagano, Japan. Seven NHL referees and six linesmen will be assigned upcoming games in Sochi by the IIHF as part of their 28-man officiating roster comprised of 14 refs and 14 linesmen. <a href="http://www.acmilansoccershop.com/c-20-manuel-locatelli-ac-milan-fc-jersey.aspx">http://www.acmilansoccershop.com/c-20-manuel-locatelli-ac-milan-fc-jersey.aspx</a>. -- The Atlanta Braves are facing the possibility of losing another pitcher for the season after general manager Frank Wren said Saturday that Cory Gearrin has a serious injury to his right elbow. <a href="http://www.acmilansoccershop.com/c-23-gianluigi-donnarumma-ac-milan-fc-jersey.aspx">Gianluigi Donnarumma Jersey</a>.com) - Novak Djokovic and Roger Federer were among the third-round winners Friday at the French Open. <a href="http://www.acmilansoccershop.com/c-7-suso-ac-milan-fc-jersey.aspx">Suso Jersey</a>. Trailing by a goal after 20 minutes of play, Joe Pavelski responded with three goals and an assist as the Sharks snapped a two-game losing skid with a 5-2 victory over the struggling Edmonton Oilers on Tuesday. LOS ANGELES -- Martin Jones charmed NHL career just keeps getting more surreal with every save, every win and every shutout in his rapidly growing collection. Jones made 24 saves for his third shutout in five games, and the remarkable rookie led the Los Angeles Kings to a 3-0 victory over the Edmonton Oilers on Tuesday night. Dwight King and Jordan Nolan scored during another dominant night for Jones, who became the first goalie in Kings history to begin his career with six consecutive victories. Edmonton is only the latest team that couldnt solve Jones, who has allowed just five goals in his six games. Even Jones seems a bit bewildered by his phenomenal success, but hes trying to stay focused on each frustrated opponent instead of his overall accomplishments. "I want to make sure Im focused and prepared for the games, but also have some fun as well," Jones said. "My job is to work hard in practice and be ready to play when called upon." Dustin Brown added an empty-net goal for the Kings, who have won seven of eight while taking just two regulation losses in 20 games since Nov. 2 (14-2-4). Jones made a handful of stunning saves in another defence-dominated night for the Kings, whose 68 goals allowed are the fewest in the NHL. The 23-year-old undrafted rookie who seemed likely to spend a fourth year in the AHL this winter instead has the NHLs best save percentage (.972) and goals-against average (0.82) while sharing the league lead in shutouts with seven other goalies -- including teammate Ben Scrivens. "These guys have been unbelievable in front of me, the way they pick up sticks and clear the net," Jones said. "They do a great job helping me out." Ilya Bryzgalov stopped 37 shots for the last-place Oilers, who have lost four straight. Bryzgalov almost matched Jones as Los Angeles handily outshot the Oilers, but key defensive breakdowns by his young teammates cost him. "I thought we had the puck in our right skilled players hands to generate chances, and we couldnt score," Edmonton coach Dallas Eakins said. "Usually the problems with our team have been turnovers or some defensive zone lapse, but that jjust wasnt the case tonight.dddddddddddd" The Kings had to go right back to work after sweeping through eastern Canada on a four-game road trip last week, posting convincing victories on every stop of their showcase in Montreal, Toronto and Ottawa. Los Angeles lost Sunday in Chicago before returning to Staples Center for its third game in four nights. "I was impressed with our team tonight because of the tough haul," coach Darryl Sutter said. "Its been a tough stretch of games, tough travel back with teams waiting for us. You score the one goal and then youre fighting the whole night." The Kings got the first periods only goal when Drew Doughty stickhandled through the Edmonton end before finding King for his ninth goal. Jones denied Ryan Smyth and Nail Yakupov up close on unguarded chances in the second period. Jones then stopped Taylor Hall on a clean breakaway early in the third when Hall couldnt get a handle on the puck, and Edmonton didnt register its first shot on goal until midway through the period. "Maybe if a couple of bounces go our way and their goalie isnt as hot as he is, it would be a different game," Hall said. "I thought we showed a lot of really good things. We managed to get out of a tough circumstance a couple of times in the game." Matt Greene made an exceptional play from in front of the Oilers bench, capitalizing on a bad Edmonton change to lob a pass to Nolan for a breakaway goal, his fifth of the season. Edmonton pulled Bryzgalov after Brown took a penalty in the waning minutes, but the Kings weathered the 6-on-4 disadvantage before Brown emerged from the box at exactly the right time to skate in alone for the 400th point of his career. High-scoring right wing Ales Hemsky returned to Edmontons lineup after missing Sundays loss in Anaheim with sore ribs. NOTES: Edmonton D Corey Potter served the first half of his two-game suspension for boarding Anaheims Nick Bonino from behind on Sunday. ... Kings D Willie Mitchell missed his second straight game after getting hit by Chris Neil in Ottawa. Mitchells absence has coincided with Greenes return from a 15-game injury absence. <a href="http://www.authenticjerseysnflcheap.com/">Wholesale Jerseys</a>  <a href="http://www.frlodge.com/">Cheap NFL Jerseys</a> <a href="http://www.cheapnfljerseyschinaline.com/">Wholesale Jerseys</a> <a href="http://www.thesavvys.com/">Authentic Jerseys From China</a> <a href="http://www.larritosh.com/">Wholesale Jerseys</a> <a href="http://www.cheapjerseysonsale.us/">Wholesale NFL Jerseys</a> ' ' '
