    Brogdon's 3-pointers lift Bucks past Raptors 104-99
    December 9, 2018
    By The Associated Press


    TORONTO (AP) Malcolm Brogdon hit tying and go-ahead 3-pointers in the final 67 seconds and the Milwaukee Bucks held on to beat the Toronto Raptors 104-99 on Sunday night.

    Brogdon scored 18 points, Giannis Antetokounmpo had 19 points and matched a season high with 19 rebounds, and Brook Lopez had 19 points for the Bucks, the first team to beat Toronto twice this season.

    Serge Ibaka scored 22 points and Kawhi Leonard had 20 for the Raptors, who have lost two straight, the second time this season they've suffered consecutive defeats. Toronto, which lost 106-105 at Brooklyn on Friday, dropped three straight from Nov. 12 to 16, losing at home to New Orleans and Detroit before an overtime defeat at Boston.

    Fred VanVleet scored 19 points and Pascal Siakam had 17 for the Raptors, whose 21-7 record is best in the NBA.

    Toronto's Kyle Lowry shot 0 for 5 and didn't score for the first time this season. Lowry led the Raptors with seven assists.

    PELICANS 116, PISTONS 108


    DETROIT (AP) - Jrue Holiday scored 37 points and Julius Randle added 28 as New Orleans dealt Detroit its fourth straight loss.

    Pelicans star Anthony Davis left with a right hip injury after a first-quarter collision with Blake Griffin. Davis returned early in the third quarter, but finished with only six points - three before the injury. He also had five blocks and nine rebounds.

    Griffin scored 35 points for Detroit, Andre Drummond had 23 points and 19 rebounds, and Langston Galloway added a season-best 24 off the bench.

    SPURS 110, JAZZ 97

    ***********************

    Monday’s Den: Wrapping up an NFL Sunday…..

    Chiefs 27, Ravens 24 OT— Chiefs converted a 4th-and-9 with 1:20 left that would’ve ended game, then they tied game with 0:53 left, and won it with a FG on first down of OT, followed by a defensive stop. This was a playoff-quality game. Lamar Jackson got hurt at the end of OT; not sure how severe the injury is, but Robert Griffin III played the last two plays of the game.

    Ravens ran ball for 198 yards, but were outgained 441-321.

    There are four teams at 7-6 in AFC, which is second Wild Card spot, so last three weeks are going to be fun. Denver’s (6-7) loss in San Francisco could be a crippler for them.

    Dolphins 34, Patriots 33— One of wildest endings ever; Miami had ball on its own 31-yard line with 0:02 left, down 33-28. They complete a pass over middle about 20 yards down field, toss two fairly short laterals, and they score the game-winning TD. New England’s defense doesn’t have lot of real fast guys. Really a shocking ending.

    Patriots have now lost five of their last six visits to Miami; home team won 11 of last 12 series games. New England is 3-4 on road this year; Miami is 6-1 at home. Dolphins are 8-3-1 vs spread in last dozen games as home underdogs. Dolphins’ playoff hopes are still alive.

    Saints 28, Buccaneers 14— Tampa Bay’s special teams totally screwed this game up; they missed two pretty easy FG’s (46, 40 yards) when they were ahead, had a punt blocked in 3rd quarter when they led 14-3 and New Orleans looked dead.

    Saints’ first six drives: 28 plays, 108 yards, 3 points
    Saints’ last four drives (after blocked punt): 33 plays, 175 yards, 25 points

    First time these teams played, when Bucs won 48-40 in Week 1, there were 15 plays of 20+ yards; there were only four such plays in this game.

    Last five years, Saints are 15-8 vs spread coming off a loss; they’re 17-6 vs spread in last 23 road games, 6-1 this year.

    Colts 24, Texans 21— Andrew Luck is Comeback Player of the Year; Indy won six of last seven games after a 1-5 start. Ravens’ loss, coupled with this result and Miami’s win, totally jumble race for second Wild Card in AFC.

    Houston could’ve claimed #2 spot in AFC with win here; their 9-game win streak ends. Texans ran for only 89 yards in this game.

    Browns 26, Panthers 20— Carolina was inside 10-yard line in last minute, but Newton threw two incomplete passes and Cleveland held on to improve to 5-7-1, while Panthers lost their 5th game in row- they’re 1-6 on road this season.

    Carolina had 12-yard edge in field position, was +1 in turnovers, but lost. Scoring 20 points (two TDs, two FGs) on five red zone drives isn’t good enough. Cleveland is 5-7-1; how do you not consider Gregg Williams for the permanent head coaching position?

    Packers 34, Falcons 20— Green Bay started this game by losing two replay challenges in first 1:23, which just never happens, but then they whacked Atlanta, scoring five of the first six times they had the ball, and also adding a defensive TD.

    Falcons lost their lost their last five games, scoring 17 ppg; they’re 0-7 this season scoring 20 or less points, 4-2 scoring more- they’re 1-5 on road. If you own the Falcons, do you stay the course with this coach and this QB? They’ve got injuries, but they also look like a team that has quit.

    Jets 27, Bills 23— 49ers, Raiders both won; had the Jets lost this game, they would’ve had inside track to #1 pick in the draft.

    With 1:22 left and Bills up 23-20, Jets had 4th-and goal inside 1-yard line; they went for it and ran ball in for a TD. TV guys had been babbling about how Jets HAD TO GO for it— why? Where does it say that you have to?

    Jets had a 20-yard edge in field position in this game; they were outgained 368-248, but snapped a 6-game losing streak. Allen was just 18-37 passing- he did run for 101 yards.

    If they re-did the 2018 draft today, Mayfield/Barkley would probably still be top two picks, but what about Darnold/Allen/Rosen? How do they stack up now?

    Giants 40, Redskins 16— Pet peeve of mine; NFL is a multi-billon dollar business, yet they cheap out when it comes to QB’s. Every NFL team should have three QB’s active every week, even if the #3 QB is a separate part of the roster. Why? So you don’t get situations like the Redskins have, with two QB’s on roster, neither of whom has been with the team for two weeks yet. It kills the quality of the product; you cannot compete without a QB who knows the plays.

    Giants’ rookie RB Barkley only ran ball 14 times, but for 170 yards; he is definitely on a pitch count- his backup ran ball 14 times, too. Giants won four of last five games, but three of the four wins were vs backup QB’s (4th win was vs Ryan Fitzpatrick, who is now a backup). This was a horrendous day for the Redskins.

    Which the score 40-16 and Washington driving with about 4:30 left, Redskins’ WR Doctson got a taunting penalty after he made a 20-yard catch; penalty took ball from 2-yard to the 17, then Washington threw an INT on next play. Grow the bleep up, shut up and play!!! Winning teams aren’t stupid. Losing teams do stuff like this all the time.

    49ers 20, Broncos 14— Kyle Shanahan beats the team his dad led to two Super Bowl titles. Loss drops Denver to 6-7, a game behind four teams for the 6-seed in the AFC. Game was 20-0 at the half. Broncos converted 2-15 on third down, averaged 3.9 yards per pass attempt.

    49ers are 3-3 at home; last five Denver games, four of last six 49er games stayed under total.

    Chargers 26, Bengals 21— Bolts won nine of their last ten games, head to Arrowhead this week with chance to tie for AFC West lead. Cincy lost five games in row, seven of last eight- they actually outgained LA 295-288.

    Lions 17, Cardinals 3— Arizona’s offense was on the field for 65 plays in this game; they were outscored on those plays 7-3 by the Detroit defense. Total yardage in this slugfest was 279-218 Arizona and it was played in a dome; there was only one play in this game (out of 120) that gained more than 17 yards, by either team.

    Cardinals stayed under their team total in six of their last seven games. Six of last seven Detroit games stayed under total; under is 5-2 in Arizona home games. This snaps the Lions’s 8-game losing streak in the desert; their last previous win here was in 1993.

    Raiders 24, Steelers 21— Third loss in row for Pittsburgh,, which maintains a half-game lead over Baltimore in AFC East. Roethlisberger missed the first four drives of the second half with a rib injury, then returned to lead two drives, one which put Steelers ahead, other which ended with a missed FG at the gun. Under is 6-1 in Steeler road games this season.

    Cowboys 29, Eagles 23 OT— Dallas traded a first-round pick for Amari Cooper; that investment paid off here, with Cooper catching 10 passes for 217 yards and three TD’s, including the GW score in OT, catching a deflected pass and running it in.

    Dallas has now won/covered five games in a row; if you had Philly/under, the gambling gods owe you one (or two). Over is now 3-1 in Philly’s road games this season, 5-1 in last six Dallas home games.

    There were nine one-score games Sunday, just a great day of football.

    Bears 15, Rams 6
    — Excellent defensive game for the Bears, who had four takeaways.
    — Second week in row Rams gave up a TD pass to an offensive lineman, which is odd.
    — New Orleans takes over the #1 seed in the NFC.
    — Chicago won six of its last seven games; they’re 9-2-2 in last 13 games as a home dog.

    Monday's Essentials
    Tony Mejia

    Game of the Night - Miami at L.A. Lakers (-8, 204.5), NBA TV, 10:35 ET

    Anthony Davis potentially playing in front of a Boston crowd has to take a back seat. Have some respect.

    Davis may not even be on the floor to receive the recruiting catcalls and adulation that would spice up tonight's matchup at T.D. Garden since he took a Blake Griffin knee to his hip on Sunday.

    The Jazz and Thunder may emerge as the top teams in the Northwest Division and square off in Oklahoma City. They would ordinarily have a great shot at being the night’s can’t-miss contest. Same goes for Minnesota, suddenly one of the NBA’s hottest teams since moving Jimmy Butler, visiting Golden State.

    They’re all excellent candidates and are touched on below, but LeBron James and Dwyane Wade will presumably play on an NBA floor in a game that counts for the final time since the Heat star has already announced he’s retiring when Miami’s season is over, dubbing this final ride “One Last Dance”. Take your hat off and salute.

    The duo changed basketball as we know it. They didn’t invent the divisive concept of a super team, so spare the venom. They merely perfected it. James will continue on as one of the game’s greats for a few more years, but Wade’s ride is complete once his team is eliminated. While there will likely be a playoff appearance to bow out through, neither the Heat nor the Lakers are making the Finals.

    The teams have already squared off in Miami back on Nov. 18, so this will be it for James and Wade, great friends and competitors. The Heat will look to gain a split after losing 113-97 while Wade was out on paternity leave and will have to rely on the guy that’s been the face of the franchise since arriving in 2003 in order to do so, which makes for a nice touch.

    The Heat are short-handed on this West Coast road trip, which hasn’t stopped them from opening 2-0 with consecutive blowout victories over the Suns and Clippers. Point guard Goran Dragic has returned from his knee injury but missed Saturday’s win at Staples Center to avoid playing the second of a back-to-back. Shooting guard Wayne Ellington missed both games due to bereavement leave, while center Hassan Whiteside has been absent in order to witness the birth of his first child.

    Ellington will return tonight but Whiteside remains away. Wing Josh Richardson and guard Tyler Johnson, who started at the point Saturday night, are both questionable after suffering in-game injuries, so Wade is likely going to play major minutes. He’s mired in a December slump, shooting 31 percent. Although he missed 10 of his first 13 3-pointers this month, he shot 5-for-10 from beyond the arc on the same floor he’ll play on tonight against the Clippers, sparking a huge fourth-quarter rally to finish with 25 points, six rebounds and six assists.

    Miami center Bam Adebayo and forward Justise Winslow have also stepped up on the trip, contributing 77 points and 32 rebounds to the two wins, so the Heat are starting to figure some things out and the chatter over whether they’re significantly better without Whiteside figures to intensify. Due to how awful the Southeast Division has been, the Heat are only one game behind first-place Charlotte entering the week.

    James has the Lakers 1.5 games behind the Warriors and firmly in the mix in a loaded Western Conference, so even though there has been the expected adjustment period, those that felt L.A. wouldn’t make the playoffs can’t be too thrilled with what has transpired thus far. In leading his team to victories in six of seven, James has averaged 30.8 points while shooting close to 55 percent.

    Considering this is the final game before the Lakers hit the road to play six of eight outside Staples, there’s plenty of incentive to get this one. LeBron scored 51 points in South Florida to fuel a blowout win, shooting 19-for-31 while making six 3-pointers, both season-bests. If Richardson can’t go, Winslow and James Johnson should draw the assignment of covering him most.

    The Lakers remain without wing Brandon Ingram, who injured his ankle in a win over Spurs on Dec. 5 and aren’t likely to have him back this week. Rajon Rondo and Michael Beasley are also sidelined. L.A. is on an 15-4 ‘under’ run since Halloween, really improving defensively when Tyson Chandler joined JaVale McGee on the roster to help protect the rim. Eight of Miami’s last 11 games have also come in below the posted total. The Heat have covered in six of eight, while the Lakers are on a 4-1-1 ATS streak.

    Best of the Rest

    Detroit at Philadelphia, 7:05 p.m. ET:
    Friday night’s nationally-televised meeting was a fun one despite Joel Embiid sitting out to get some rest, but it was somewhat lost in the weekend news cycle that he criticized head coach Brett Brown for using him to spread the floor too much, pulling him away from the basket. The 76ers haven’t played since, so it will be interesting to see what they look like coming off a 117-111 win in which Jimmy Butler finished with 38 points. Detroit lost again on Sunday, dropping another tight high-scoring game at home to New Orleans despite Andre Drummond and Blake Griffin combining for 58 points and 24 rebounds in a 116-108 loss. The duo combined for 52 points and 22 boards against Philly and aren’t getting enough support.

    The teams split their first two meetings prior to Friday’s. Andre Drummond landed in foul trouble in the most recent meeting against Embiid on Nov. 3, playing just 21 minutes. Embiid has averaged 36 points and 14 boards in the two games against the Pistons thus far. Considering Griffin has a 50-point game against the 76ers and Butler comes off a Friday masterpiece, it will be intriguing to see who imposes their will here with everyone expected to be in play.

    New Orleans at Boston, 7:35 p.m. ET:
    Davis returned and was moving around well after his hip injury in Detroit, but it remains to be seen how his hip reacted overnight and whether the Pelicans will risk his long-term health on the second night of a back-to-back. If he plays, Celtics fans may very well cheer every time he touches the ball. Boston comes off its largest win in franchise history, having destroyed the Bulls 133-77 on Saturday night. Gordon Hayward is starting to look like himself and really benefiting from the wide open looks teammates are generating for him. Jayson Tatum and Jaylen Brown have also been more efficient of late, so the Celtics winning and covering in each of their last five games has been no fluke. Jrue Holiday comes off a season-high 37 points on Sunday, draining six 3-pointers.

    Utah at Oklahoma City, 8:05 p.m. ET:
    The Thunder played two teams coming in on eight-game losing streaks last week. They overcame a massive deficit against the Nets on a Paul George buzzer-beater and lost to a Bulls team that went on fall by 56 points the next night. There's no question that the Thunder needed the weekend to get refocused since they played down to their level of competition.

    OKC has won 16 of 20 games and have seen Russell Westbrook and Paul George co-exist about as well as conceivably possible, so there's not much to be concerned with, but it will be interesting to see who shows more fight here since the Jazz come off a lopsided loss in San Antonio where they could've been accused of looking ahead to this one since they had crushed the Spurs earlier in the week. This is the first meeting between the Northwest Division rivals. Utah has lost six of seven in the series, the last two decisively by double-digits.

    Games to Watch - Week 9

    After another big week of NBA action, normal order has been restored in the Western Conference, with the Golden State Warriors back on top, albeit by the slimmest of margins. Over in the East, the Toronto Raptors had themselves a bit of a rough week, seeing their lead at the top reduced to 2 games.

    As we do every week, we are going to look ahead at the next few days to pick out the best games on tap in the NBA. We have four great looking games for you guys this week, which we will look at a little closer.

    Monday - Miami Heat at Los Angeles Lakers

    It’s Fanny Pack Giveaway Night at the Staples Center, but the question here is whether the Lakers will be in a giving mood when LeBron’s old team comes to town. This will be the second meeting between these two teams this season, with the Lakers winning 113-97 on the road in the previous game. The Lakers have been hot of late, winning 7 of their last 10, and they have been outstanding at home, posting a 10-4 record to this point. The Heat are just below the playoff line in the East and moving up with back-to-back wins. I don’t see them making it three in a row here.

    Tuesday - Toronto Raptors at Los Angeles Clippers

    Both of these teams are very much in the conference title picture in their respective conferences, but both are coming off a bit of a sloppy week. The Raptors and the Clippers both ended last week with back-to-back losses, so expect them both to come out looking for a win and a return to form here. The Clippers had the better of this match-up last season, winning both games, but I think they will find it a little tougher this time around. Given how well Toronto have started the season, it’s tough to imagine them losing three in a row.

    Wednesday - Toronto Raptors at Golden State Warriors

    The Raptors have a tough week ahead of them, with the toughest part coming on Wednesday night when they head into Oakland to face a Warriors team that have forced their way back to the top of the Western Conference. The Warriors are winners of three straight and are starting to once again look like the team that we expected them to be. They are certainly going to have their hands full with the Eastern Conference leaders, but you need to look at the Warriors 11-2 record at home. They just seldom lose there, which is why I think they win this one.

    Thursday - Los Angeles Lakers at Houston Rockets

    You would be sitting on a nice little pile of cash if you had wagered on the Houston Rockets to be sitting second bottom in the Western Conference at this stage of the season. The reigning champions of the West are in trouble and have just three wins in their last 10 games. The positive here is that the race in the West is tight, which means that Houston are just six games out of the lead and 2 back of the final playoff spot. They need to start winning now, though, and I don’t see them doing that against the red-hot Lakers on Thursday night.
