TORONTO - Toronto Raptors head coach Dwane Casey used words like growing, adjusting and learning frequently throughout a 30-minute conference call with reporters Monday. Phillies Zach Eflin Jersey .His young team is soaking up the NBA playoff experience and showing the Brooklyn Nets that they wont be pushovers at the same time.What Caseys squad lacks in experience, it makes up for in effort. That was on full display a day earlier as Toronto showed its mettle in an 87-79 road victory that tied the best-of-seven first-round series at two games apiece.The Raptors are focused on results this spring but theyre also trying to build a foundation they hope will lead to long-term success.Were a young team, nobody expected us to be here, Casey said. Every experience is a new experience for us. Guys are growing in every situation.After a jittery start, Toronto has held its own against a tough Brooklyn lineup that features veteran players Kevin Garnett, Joe Johnson, Paul Pierce and Deron Williams.The Raptors are banged up and have had to go deep into their bench over the first four games. But they have responded well as a team in a series that will be a key building block for the future.Going through the playoffs is nothing but a plus for our franchise, Casey said. As I said, you dont want it to be a one-time (appearance) in the playoffs and never be seen again for six more years. You want it to be a growing experience. With our core guys being so young, that should be their goal going forward.Now that youve been in the playoffs once, you know what it tastes like, you know what it feels like. You know going through the season when the coach is preaching physicality, how hard youve got to play, how youve got to take care of the ball, why hes saying that. Because all that comes into play in playoff basketball.Several Toronto players are nursing injuries but most are expected to be available for Wednesdays Game 5 at Air Canada Centre.Among the starters, Kyle Lowry has been hobbled by a sore knee and Amir Johnson has had ankle problems. Patrick Patterson was a little gimpy last night, according to Casey, who added that Landry Fields (back) was feeling much better.Were nicked up, banged up a little bit but nothing that we know of thats major right now, Casey said.The series will return to Barclays Center on Friday for Game 6. If a seventh game is necessary, it will be played on Sunday in Toronto.This whole series for us is a learning experience because we are such a young team, Casey said. Its the first time in the playoffs for a lot of our key guys. So Im learning that they are growing from it. They are getting better in certain situations and theyre still making mistakes in certain situations.But the adjustment part is something thats big for us. To be able to change things on a days notice or even in game situations, thats good to know and good to see.DeMar DeRozan scored 24 points in the Game 4 win and Lowry added 22. The Raptors came through with key defensive stops late in the game and showed they wont be intimidated by the Nets.I think as the series has gone on our guys have gotten more comfortable, Casey said. But again we know were going against a very veteran, experienced team that has seen everything and experienced everything.Theyre going to make some adjustments, were going to have to continue to make adjustments as the series goes on.The Raptors have managed to split the first four games despite the struggles of starter Terrence Ross, who was held off the scoresheet in 16 minutes of play on Sunday.Casey plans to stick with the youngster, noting its important to keep an eye on long-term development as the post-season continues.The only thing that will help him next year is to go through this, he said. He is a talented young man. This says nothing about his potential and where hes going to be this time next year. This is still a learning experience for him. Is he going to stub his toe? Yes. But hes still got to go through it.I thought his defence was superb in the first quarter last night against Deron Williams. I thought he did a good job. Hes just got to get a feel and a rhythm and a style of play with his offence.The Raptors should get a boost from the boisterous Air Canada Centre crowd. Casey wants his players to feed off that energy and build on what they have accomplished so far.I think our guys are growing as we go, he said. Thats the hard thing about being a young team in the playoffs. A team like Brooklyn has seen everything, theyve experienced everything, theyve had every atmosphere you can have in the playoffs and some of them have won championships.Thats the advantage you have as an experienced team and the disadvantage you have as a young team. But our guys are growing and learning as we go.Notes: Game 4 was a ratings hit for TSN. Overnight data from BBM Canada indicated an average audience of 885,000 viewers watched the game.

Phillies Odubel Herrera Jersey .com) - The New York Jets have named Mike Maccagnan their new general manager. Phillies Larry Bowa Jersey . The Montreal Alouettes announced Tuesday that they have acquired the return specialist from Calgary, as well as the Stampeders fifth-round draft pick in the 2014 CFL Canadian Draft. http://www.cheapphilliesjerseysauthentic.com/?tag=phillies-carlos-santana-jersey . Huntelaar also had a penalty saved by Wolfsburg goalkeeper Diego Benaglio. The two goals brought Huntelaars total for the season to 18, level with Bayern Munichs Mario Gomez for most in the league.CALGARY - Calgary and Nashville entered the night ranked 28th and 29th offensively, but you never would have known it. Shea Weber scored twice, including the go-ahead goal late in the third period, Friday night as the Predators, despite blowing two leads, escaped with a 6-5 victory over the Calgary Flames. Tied 4-4 and with the Predators on the power play, Weber took a perfect feed from Matt Cullen and fired a slapshot past Joey MacDonald from the face-off dot to put Nashville back into the lead at 14:28. On a night that featured ugly plays defensively from both sides, even the go-ahead goal was no thing of beauty either, Weber admitted. "I missed it," said the Predators defenceman. "I was trying to go up with it to be honest with you and it kind of went off the heel of my stick and I got lucky." Webers 18th goal ties him with Ottawas Erik Karlsson for second in the NHL among defencemen, one back of Winnipegs Dustin Byfuglien. "We didnt expect that coming in. We thought it was going to be a tight-checking, low-scoring game," said Weber. "Obviously its huge to get that many goals. Hopefully that can loosen guys up a bit." Cullen added his seventh goal of the season at 17:08 on a deflection. That would turn out to be the winning goal after Mike Cammalleris second of the night from a scramble 28 seconds later set up a furious final two-and-a-half minutes for the Flames, who buzzed around the Predators net and did everything but tie it against back-up goaltender Carter Hutton. "Its weird how games sometimes trend like that. When it opens up, it opens up," said Hutton, who came in for starter Pekka Rinne after Mikael Backlund tied it 4-4 on the Flames 18th shot at 13:31 of the second. "The fifth one wasnt the best goal Ive ever given up but it squeaks in," said Hutton. "The crowd starts getting into it but weve still got the one-goal lead. Youve got to stay focused and my mindset doesnt change." Victor Bartley, Patric Hornqvist and Viktor Stalberg also scored for Nashville (30-31-10), which snapped a three-game losing skid. Twenty-two-year-old centre Calle Jarnkrok had an assist in his NHL debut. Kris Russell and Jiri Hudler rounded out the scoring for Calgary (28-35-7), which lost for only the third time in its last dozen games at the Scotiabank Saddledome. "Pretty simple - no defence," said Flames head coach Bob Hartley. "Im not pointing at our goalie or our defencemen, by any means. Im talking about our team game." Down 2-0 early, the Flames fought back to tie it 3-3 before falling behind again 4-3. They came from behind one more time to even it 4-4 headed to the third. "t;We worked very hard to come back a few times in the game, but the way that we were committed defensively tonight, I dont think we had a chance," Hartley said. Phillies Roman Quinn Jersey. After the game, the Flames announced that Joni Ortio, who started but was pulled after surrendering four goals on 13 shots, was being returned to Abbotsford in the American Hockey League now that Karri Ramo (knee) is ready to return to the line-up for Saturdays game in Edmonton. Hartley was quick to absolve Ortio from blame for the defeat. "It was not an easy night for him but the way we executed in the first period," said Hartley. "Us, as a team, we put our goalie in that situation. I dont think we can blame Joni Ortio by any means for this loss. That was a team loss and were much better than what we showed tonight." Leading 2-1 after the first period, Nashville increased its margin to two when Hornqvist batted in a centring pass out of the air. It was the first of five goals in a wide open, back and forth and middle period. Cammalleri drew the Flames back to within one at 6:23 and 51 seconds later, Hudler tipped in Mark Giordanos snapshot from the blue-line to tie it 3-3. "That was an old-school game, I guess. It was back and forth. We did a lot of great things and had a lot of good spurts, especially offensively, but we gave way too many chances off the rush," said Giordano, who had two assists and leads all NHL defencemen with 13 points in March. March has also been good for Cammalleri, who is tied with Jarome Iginla and Jonathan Toews for the most goals in the month with nine. "One thing were proud of, especially in the last little while, is not giving up as many chances. Tonight, we would like to do a better job of that." Hutton stopped 10-of-11 shots to earn the victory and improve to 16-11-4. MacDonald was tagged with the loss to fall to 4-4-1. He had six saves on eight shots in relief. Nashville got off to a fast start beating Ortio on both of its first two shots in the opening period. At 5:10, Bartley scored his first NHL goal, one-timing a slapshot through Ortios pads. Just 49 seconds later, Weber finished off a give-and-go with Mike Fisher on an odd-man rush. Notes: Kenny Agostino made his NHL debut for the Flames. He played left wing on a line with rookies Sean Monahan and Joe Colborne. Agostinos parents flew in from New Jersey for the game...
