TORONTO - The Toronto Raptors are playing like they have the weight of the world on their shoulders, says coach Dwane Casey. Cheap Baltimore Orioles Jerseys .Mired in their first real slump in recent memory, the Raptors dropped a 95-93 decision to the New Orleans Pelicans on Sunday.Then they departed the Air Canada Centre with heads hanging, as the six-game homestand they had hoped would turn their fortunes in their favour ended with just two wins.Were playing in mud right now, Casey said. Confidence wise, we have to come out believing that youre going to make a play. . . we have to play with that type of confidence, that type of belief that you can get it done. Somehow, some way, we have to get back to playing basketball and not feeling that weight on our shoulders.DeMar DeRozan scored 22 points for the Raptors (26-14), who have lost seven of their last nine games, and dropped back-to-back home games for the first time since last March. Greivis Vasquez, who started the second half in place of scoreless Terrence Ross, finished with 16 points, Amir Johnson had 14 points and 10 rebounds, and Patrick Patterson added 10 points.Tyreke Evans scored 26 points, including the driving layup with two seconds to go that gave New Orleans the win. Alexis Ajinca finished with 22 for the Pelicans (20-20), who were playing without starters Anthony Davis and Jrue Holiday.This team actually started to win last year and you guys havent seen any struggles since we started winning, an emotional Vasquez told reporters in a quiet post-game locker-room. Everything was heaven, everything was blue, beautiful, clear. Now youre seeing some struggles.Every NBA team. . . I remember Atlanta a month and a half ago was struggling, now theyre probably the best team in the NBA and good for them, credit to them. Were trying to search our identity back and its about being humble and hungry.The Raptors had looked forward to being home after a disappointing six-game road trip out west, but the misery continued at the Air Canada Centre, and Fridays 110-89 rout by the Atlanta Hawks prompted a players-only meeting.Toronto got off to its worst start of the season Sunday, with season lows for both the first quarter 14 points and first half 36 points. They headed for the locker-room at halftime amid a smattering of boos, something that hasnt been heard at a Raptors game in more than a year.Fans have to be patient, Vasquez said. Discouraged how they boo us. I dont think thats very nice because we are really playing hard for them and representing the city. We want the best and we want to win.The Raptors finally showed some life in the third, outscoring the Pelicans 35-14 in the frame to take a 71-65 lead into the fourth. They would stretch their advantage to 12 points on a pair of free throws from Williams with 6:39 to play. And then, the Raptors hit the proverbial wall once again, as the Pelicans missing Davis to a sprained toe and Holiday to a sore right ankle roared back to take the lead in the final minute.DeRozan drained two free throws to tie the game with 43 seconds to play, but Evans dribbled down the clock and scored with 1.6 seconds remaining, to the dismay of the ACC crowd, then DeRozan missed on a last-ditch shot at the final buzzer to send the Raptors into Mondays game at Milwaukee having lost two in a row. The slumping Ross, meanwhile, sat at the end of the Raptors bench for the entire second half, his final play of the game an air ball on a three-point attempt he chucked up to end the first half.Weve just got to be there for him the best way we can, help lift him, just like we do everybody else, DeRozan said. Weve all been there, playing in this league, everybodys been there in some type of way. Weve just got to help him out the best way we can, and get him back on his feet. Once he gets rolling, its going to be something he definitely needed when he looks back at it.Casey said he wont give up on Ross, who hasnt looked anything like the player who tied the franchise record with his 51-point performance last season.Hes a young man, all young players are going to be up and down, we just have to help him any way we can, Casey said. Whether its extra work, if coming out of the lineup is going to help him and his confidence, whatever it takes to get his mojo going. Were playing for something and it is an important time for us to come out of it.The Raptors were clobbered in the paint 62-34, and beaten on second-chance points 18-9.The Raptors staggered out to their lowest-scoring first quarter of the season, shooting just 26 per cent from the field and 1-for-8 from three point range. They didnt reach double digits until more than eight minutes into the game, and trailed 21-14 heading into the second quarter.Obviously we played against a team thats picked to do well in the East, and doing that without Jrue and AD (Davis) was big for us, said Pelicans coach Monty Williams.The poor play continued into the second. Evans scored 13 points to lead the way for the Pelicans, who outscored Toronto 29-22 in the quarter and took a 50-36 advantage into halftime.DeRozan led the way with 13 points in a third quarter that saw Toronto outscore its guests 35-14.

Cheap Roberto Alomar Jersey .Y. -- Defenceman Ryan Murphy had a goal and an assist and Drew MacIntyre made 24 saves to help the Carolina Hurricanes beat the New York Islanders 4-2 in an exhibition game Wednesday night. http://www.cheaporiolesjerseys.com/?tag=cheap-frank-robinson-jersey . -- Downcast before the final game of what had been a difficult road trip, the Ottawa Senators found a way to dig out a little momentum in the desert before heading home.MINNEAPOLIS -- Ubaldo Jimenez struck out a season-high 10 over seven-plus scoreless innings for his first win with Baltimore, and Nelson Cruz hit a two-run home run to pad his lead for the Orioles in a 3-0 victory on Friday over the Minnesota Twins. Jimenez (1-4) allowed only three hits while taking a significant step forward from five rough starts to begin his $50 million, four-year contract with the Orioles. Jimenez dropped his ERA from 6.59 to 5.19, after leaving with one out in the eighth following Eduardo Escobars double. Zach Britton stranded the runner with a groundout and a called third strike on Joe Mauer, and Tommy Hunter picked up his eighth save in nine tries by pitching the ninth. Trevor Plouffe led off with a double, but Hunter struck out the next two and ended the game on a groundout. Ricky Nolasco (2-3) gave the Twins a complete game, giving up nine hits and one walk while striking out six for his eighth career nine-inning appearance. Cruz doubled in the fourth, scoring on a double by Matt Wieters, before his soaring drive into the third deck above left field followed a leadoff single by Manny Machado in the sixth inning. Cruz, who entered the night tied for fourth in the league in homers, has gone deep eight times already with his new team. The sign that this would be Jimenezs night came in the third inning, when the first two Twins he faced reached base. The 30-year-old right-hander with the herky-jerky delivery dug in and struck out the side after that: Brian Dozier, Mauer and Plouffe. From the third into the eighth, Jimenez retired 16 of 17 batters, with the only outlier a fielding error by second baseman Jonathan Schoop that put Escobar on with two outs in the fifth. Jimenez, who threw a season-high 118 pitches, had issued 17 walks in 27 1-3 innings over those prior five starts. Threee runs allowed was his lowest total. Cheap Orioles Jerseys Authentic. Nolasco, who received the richest deal the Twins have ever given a free agent from another team, likewise has had a rocky start to the $49 million, four-year contract he signed with the club. But only on the road, where the right-hander has taken the mound four times. In two turns at Target Field, Nolasco has allowed just four runs on 14 hits and two walks in 17 innings. These were two tired teams taking the field, each forced into a doubleheader the day before by wet weather prior to that. The Orioles swept the Pittsburgh Pirates in Baltimore on Thursday and arrived in Minneapolis around 5:30 a.m. The Twins had the benefit of being at home, but after a Wednesday night game that lasted 3:38 they were swept by the Los Angeles Dodgers on Thursday in games that took 3:01 and 5:11. The last one, the longest game in five seasons at Target Field, took 12 innings. NOTES: The Orioles will send LH Wei-Yin Chen (3-1, 4.34 ERA) to the mound on Saturday afternoon, and RH Kevin Correia (0-3, 7.33 ERA) will pitch for the Twins. Chen has won both of his road starts this year. Correia gave up eight runs in only 2 1-3 innings in his last turn. ... Correia went down to the bullpen as the emergency pitcher in case the game kept going the night before. Was he warming up, Twins manager Ron Gardenhire was asked? "No, he was freezing," Gardenhire quipped. ... Prized Orioles prospect Kevin Gausman, the fourth overall pick in the 2012 amateur draft, was diagnosed with a form of pneumonia, Showalter said, but the RHP should be able to resume pitching for Triple-A Norfolk as soon as hes feeling well again. ... The Twins announced their rained-out game against Detroit last Sunday will be made up as part of a day-night doubleheader on Aug. 23 when the Tigers make their next weekend trip to Target Field.
