Raptors lose, trio ejected as streak snaps

In the late game, Oklahoma City Thunder snapped the Toronto Raptors' team-record 11-game winning streak with a hotly contested 132-125 victory at Air Canada Centre.

Westbrook often stars, but his numbers on Sunday (37 points, 14 assists, 13 rebounds) were ridiculous.

Everything started when DeRozan felt that he was fouled by Thunder swingman Corey Brewer during a layup attempt but did not get a call from the game's officials.

"You know the frustration, you know what it came down to", said DeRozan, who was still angry after the game at what he said were non-calls on obvious fouls. Entering the game with a lengthy unbeaten run, the Raptors might have forgotten a bit just how it feels like to be on the short end of the stick, as they certainly did not take the defeat well.

This time it was former teammate Serge Ibaka as Adams tried to stop a drive to the basket.

"All we want to ask for is fairness and consistency - in all the league", said Casey, who was ejected himself in the game's final seconds.

Paul George scored 22 points and Carmelo Anthony had 15 as the Thunder extended their winning streak to six.

Khaleda's bail order decision tomorrow
According to the lawyer, the decision of the bench was unanimous and a decision on her bail will be completed in three weeks. The lower court's verdict shook the country's political scenario ahead of the general elections in December this year.


Damian Lillard and CJ McCollum were among five Trail Blazers to finish in double figures, with 23 and 21 points respectively.

Casey was tossed by Haywoode Workman, though it appeared the official thought a fan's comments were made by Casey, which resulted in the coach laughing as he walked off the court.

Elsewhere, James Harden buried a three-pointer inside the final minute, and the visiting Houston Rockets completed a season sweep of the Minnesota Timberwolves with a 129-120 win.

The league puts out a "last two-minute report" the day after the game - only for ones that are decided by three points or less - in which all foul calls and "notable" non-calls are reviewed.

NEW ORLEANS (AP) - Anthony Davis had 34 points and 11 rebounds, and the New Orleans Pelicans beat the banged-up Boston Celtics.

Cheick Diallo scored a season-high 17 points and Nikola Mirotic added 16 for the Pelicans, who had dropped four of their previous five to see their playoff hopes dwindle. "When we move the basketball, make the defense scramble a little bit, we tend to find guys that are open". The Celtics (47-23) are virtually locked into the number two seed in the East, five games behind the Raptors, and 6.5 ahead of the Cavaliers.
