TORONTO - DeMar DeRozan is feeling like himself again.
DeRozan scored 25 points with six rebounds and four assists as the Toronto Raptors held off a late charge by the Detroit Pistons for a 114-110 victory on Sunday.
DeRozan missed 21 games between Nov. 30 and Jan. 12 with a torn left adductor tendon. Although he'd played in six games before Sunday's win, he finally felt 100 per cent against the Pistons.
COLUMBUS, Ohio - By the time players finished scoring a record 29 goals at the NHL all-star game, they agreed that there was one loud, ear-piercing negative: the cannon at Nationwide Arena.
"I hate the cannon," Philadelphia Flyers captain Claude Giroux said.
Florida Panthers goaltender Roberto Luongo added that the cannon wasn't his favourite part of the weekend either.
CHICAGO - Chicago Cubs great Ernie Banks died after a heart attack, an attorney representing the Hall of Famer's family said Sunday.
With Banks' widow standing nearby at a news conference at a downtown hotel, Mark Bogen said Banks had the heart attack Friday in Chicago and died later that day. He did not provide any other details.
"I want you to know that he was very beloved and he is going to be dearly missed by family, friends and all his fans," Liz Banks said.
NEW YORK, N.Y. - The impending blizzard predicted for New York and the surrounding suburbs is already changing plans for the hometown Rangers.
With the NHL All-Star break ending Monday, the Rangers had planned to practice at their training centre rink in Westchester County one day before travelling to Long Island to play the rival New York Islanders on Tuesday night.
NEW YORK, N.Y. - Coach 1K. How grand.
Mike Krzyzewski earned his 1,000th career win Sunday, making him the first NCAA Division I men's coach to reach the milestone, when No. 5 Duke surged past St. John's in the second half for a 77-68 victory at Madison Square Garden.
Tyus Jones scored 22 points and the Blue Devils (17-2) went on an 18-2 run down the stretch to put Coach K in four figures on his first try.
KINGSTON, Ont. - At the 1976 Olympics, on the way to his bronze medal, Toller Cranston marched to the river and threw his skates in it.
Cranston had done poorly in the compulsory figures, and launched his skates in frustration.
"Then he turned and said 'I will never skate on those again,'" said Olympic teammate Debbi Wilkes, with a laugh.
"He was a man of extremes. Either totally into it, or totally out of it."
TORONTO - As always, the one thing that never changes at Toronto FC is change. But the revolving door seems to be swinging a little slower going into the 2015 season.
Rather than radical surgery, head coach Greg Vanney and GM Tim Bezbatchenko have targeted key areas for improvement. And while there is more work to be done on defence, a franchise known for past failures looks like it will be worth watching this season.
This year is about executing their vision.
TORONTO - Toronto FC will be without Brazilians Gilberto and Jackson when it opens training camp Monday.
Gilberto is remaining in Brazil while the MLS team resolves its logjam at designated player. Teams are currently allowed three and Toronto will be at four when Sebastian Giovinco arrives to join Michael Bradley, Jozy Altidore and Gilberto.
Giovinco is scheduled to arrive in July once his contract with Juventus expires. But there have been rumblings the Italian star could come sooner.
KINGSTON, Ont. - Patrick Chan was a spectator at the Canadian championships this past week for the first time in his career, and noticed something funny from his vantage point in the stands at the Rogers K-Rock Centre.
People were talking during performances. Or tapping away on their cellphones.
The 24-year-old from Toronto is taking this season off to kick back and contemplate his future, and said the biggest thing he's learned thus far is perspective.
