The Toronto Raptors gave two key players a breather – and still had more than enough shooting to win their final home game of the regular season.

C.J. Miles scored 22 points http://www.steelersauthorizedshops.c...hington-jersey , OG Anunoby had a career-high 21 and the Raptors beat the Orlando Magic 112-101 on Sunday night.

Serge Ibaka scored 13 points, and Jakob Poeltl and Delon Wright each had 12. The Raptors closed out their home schedule by extending their franchise records for wins (58) and home wins (34).

”We shot the ball confidently,” Toronto’s Kyle Lowry said. ”We needed that, heading into the next couple of weeks, shooting the ball confidently.”

After clinching the top spot in the Eastern Conference on Friday night with a win over Indiana, the Raptors gave guard DeMar DeRozan and center Jonas Valanciunas the night off. Toronto will rest players again Monday night at Detroit, then return to full strength Wednesday night for the regular-season finale at Miami.

”It’s not like we totally need rest Lamar Jackson Color Rush Jersey , but I think it’s the prudent thing to do for our team,” coach Dwane Casey said.

Lowry scored 11 points as the Raptors converted 39 of 78 field goal attempts. Anonoby made five of eight from 3-point range, while Miles hit 5 of 10. Toronto made 17 of 40 from beyond the arc.

”We didn’t guard the 3-point line well enough,” Magic coach Frank Vogel said.

Aaron Gordon scored 16 points and Mario Hezonja had 14 for Orlando. The Magic lost for the eighth time in 11 games. Toronto has beaten Orlando twice in that stretch.

Magic rookie Khem Birch, who was born in Montreal, matched his career high with 12 points and added a career-high 12 rebounds in his first NBA game in Canada.

”He just impacts the game in the right way,” Vogel said. ”He was really good tonight.”

Raptors center Lucas Nogueria made his third start of the season in place of Valanciunas but left midway through the first quarter with a sore left hamstring and did not return. Casey said Nogueira would undergo an MRI.

Norm Powell Paul Worrilow Color Rush Jersey , who started in DeRozan’s place, suffered a sprained left ankle in the first quarter but returned in the second. Powell finished with 13 points.

Guard Fred VanVleet left in the second quarter with a sore lower back and did not return, but Casey said VanVleet’s injury was not considered serious.

”If he’d had to have played, he’d have played,” Casey said.

Orlando’s Terrence Ross returned after missing more than four months because of injuries to his right knee and leg.

”I felt good,” Ross said. ”It didn’t hurt at all. It was nice shaking off some of the rust.”

Ross, who started his career with the Raptors Vinny Curry Color Rush Jersey , had been sidelined since Nov. 29. He scored three points in 10 minutes.

”It’s great to see him back out there,” Vogel said. ”He can do a lot of things. He’s going to help us when he’s back next year and at full strength.”

Frustration over losing is no excuse for refusing to wear a silver medal around your neck, the International Ice Hockey Federation ruled Wednesday.

The IIHF issued multi-game suspensions for five players and three coaches of Sweden’s national team for pocketing or tossing their silver medals into the stands during the closing ceremony of the world junior championships in January. The actions occurred immediately following Sweden’s 3-1 loss to Canada in the gold-medal game at the 10-nation tournament held in Buffalo, New York.

”The players have, by their actions http://www.bengalsauthorizedshops.co...y-glenn-jersey , shown a lack of self-control,” the IIHF said. ”Taking off the silver medals presented to the players shows not only the disrespect against the spectators and the organizers of the championship, but also the disrespect against their opponents and winners of the championship.”

The Swedes violated an IIHF rule requiring players and team officials to wear medals around their necks during the closing ceremony and postgame media availabilities.

Captain Lias Andersson faced the most severe discipline in being issued a four-game ban from next year’s world juniors. Upon being presented his medal, Andersson skated away and immediately tossed it over the glass to a fan.

”I didn’t want it. That guy in the stands wanted it more than me,” Andersson said, noting he has another silver medal just like it back home after losing the Under-18 championship.

He said it made little difference the medal was eventually returned to him.

”I’m just going to have it at home in some box or something,” Andersson said.

Defenseman Rasmus Dahlin http://www.chiefsauthorizedshops.com..._daniel-jersey , projected to be the No. 1 pick in the NHL draft in June, was suspended from playing the first two games of the Under-18 world championship next year. The ban does not apply to any other league.

Forwards Axel Jonsson and Jesper Boqvist and goalie Olle Eriksson Ek were suspended from playing the first two games at the world juniors next year.

Head coach Tomas Monten was issued a three-game ban from next year’s world juniors for putting the silver medal into his pocket during the ceremony. Assistants Nizze Landen and Henrik Stridh were handed two-game suspensions.

”Losing a game is part of any competition and of the sport of ice hockey, and does not excuse any unfair and unsportsmanlike behavior,” the IIHF ruled. ”To be `frustrated’ by the loss of a game is not the right attitude.”

The players and coaches have three weeks to appeal the rulings.
