Philadelphia, PA (SportsNetwork.com) - Tony Wrotens go-ahead layup with 9.9 seconds remaining gave the Philadelphia 76ers their first home win of the season, a 95-92 victory over the Cleveland Cavaliers on Monday. The game was overshadowed by trade rumors involving Cavaliers guard Dion Waiters, who didnt suit up Monday. Those rumors became reality after the game, as Cleveland dealt Waiters to Oklahoma City in a three-team deal while acquiring guards J.R. Smith and Iman Shumpert from the New York Knicks. Center Alex Kirk and forward Lou Amundson also sat out and were sent to the Knicks, with the Cavs also getting a protected 2015 first-round pick from the Thunder in the swap. Wroten ended with 20 points and eight assists for the Sixers, who improved to 1-14 at home. Michael Carter-Williams tallied 18 points, 13 assists and six rebounds in his return to the lineup. Kevin Love had 28 points and 19 boards for the Cavaliers, who have lost five of six.

Jared Sullinger paced Boston with 22 points and eight rebounds as the Celtics fell to 2-7 since trading Rajon Rondo to the Dallas Mavericks.

Final Score: Dallas 96, Brooklyn 88 (OT) Brooklyn, NY (SportsNetwork.com) - Dirk Nowitzki passed Moses Malone for seventh place on the NBAs all-time scoring list with a 3-pointer in overtime and the Dallas Mavericks overcame a meltdown late in regulation to beat the Brooklyn Nets 96-88 on Monday night. Nowitzkis 3 punctuated a dominant overtime period for the Mavericks, who got their season high-tying sixth win in a row to end a 3-0 road trip against Eastern Conference teams. They were 5-for-9 in overtime, led by four points apiece from Monta Ellis and Tyson Chandler. Ellis finished with 19 points and made two foul shots in the final seconds of regulation to tie the score after Dallas went cold from the field during an 11-0 Nets run. Nowitzki had 15 points and Chandler scored 14 with 13 rebounds. Brook Lopez had 22 points and 13 rebounds to lead Brooklyn, but scored just four after the first quarter.

Already without their top scorers, Carmelo Anthony and Amare Stoudemire, due to injury, the Knicks played without another key piece after sitting out sixth man J.R. Smith in advance of a three-team trade that was announced following the game. New York shipped Smith and sidelined guard Iman Shumpert to Cleveland, while receiving rookie center Alex Kirk and forward Lou Amundson from the Cavaliers as well as forward Lance Thomas from Oklahoma City.

Final Score: Golden State 117, Oklahoma City 91 Oakland, CA (SportsNetwork.com) - The Golden State Warriors have looked invincible in the Bay Area since Christmas. So much so that Kevin Durant and Russell Westbrook looked on as spectators for most of the fourth quarter. Stephen Curry had 19 points, nine rebounds, six assists and four steals as the Warriors routed the Oklahoma City Thunder 117-91 on Monday night. After a 100-86 loss to the Clippers on Los Angeles on Dec. 25, Golden States third defeat in five games, the Warriors have rattled off four straight home wins. Theyve won those contests by an average of 25 points. Golden State, which went 15-of-28 from beyond the arc Monday, has shot 44.6 percent from 3-point range during its torrid stretch.

Mike Conley Jersey . The thinking at the time was Clowney could have already been promised he would be selected first overall by the Houston Texans, therefore negating any need to meet with any other teams. The plot took another twist this week. Wade Baldwin Jersey . The team reported the signing on its website Thursday, but said Friday the deal was off in "a mutual parting of the ways that had to do with the language of the contract.REGINA -- Young, loose and happy to be here. The Hamilton Tiger-Cats go into the 101st Grey Cup with very little pressure and a lot of love. A Hamilton team with 18 CFL rookies on the roster, without a stadium and sometimes hot water, has come a very long way this season. Their journey has taken them all the way to Saskatchewan, where the predominant colour in winter is white but the locals bleed green. Rider Nation expects a lot from the Roughriders. "Carrying the Weight of a Nation," was the headline in Saturdays Regina Leader-Post. City buses have been flashing "Go Riders Go" all week as they snake through the snowy roads. The underdog Tiger-Cats are hoping to spoil the party. And their motivation has been ramped up by the Rider love-in this week, including the CFL awards show. "Everything seemed like it was about Saskatchewan," said Hamilton linebacker Brandon Isaac, who won the Cup last year as an Argo. "That got a lot of guys fired up, got the blood boiling." Added veteran quarterback Henry Burris: "At the awards show it was like Hey, welcome to history, history, history, history, history. ... Of course they werent talking about us and then all of a sudden it was like Hey. dont forget Hamilton is here." The Ticats understand they are in enemy territory but have nevertheless turned Rider Pride into a big chip on their black-and-gold shoulders. It has made for the ultimate us-against-the world scenario. Its been that way all season. While their new stadium is being built, the Ticats spent the year commuting to McMaster for practice and Guelph for games. "For all the things that people said we couldnt overcome and all the different obstacles that have been thrown at us ... we should have just folded the tent and just went home before the season started," said Burris. "We believed in ourselves, and the talent that we had in that (locker) room," he added. "All we had to do is really commit ourselves and sacrifice everything away from football and truly commit ourselves to making ourselves a better team." Coach Kent Austin has little sympathy for issues like cold showers and other annoying byproducts of their nomadic season. That message has trickled down to his players. "Its something you put up with," Austin said. "No big deal. Welcome to the game of life. "We dont whine about things like that or make excuses." Hamilton (10-8) started the season 1-4 but finished it on a 4-1 run, before adding two more victories in the post-season. The hours spent on buses has made for a team that genuinely enjoys its own company. "You enjoy coming to work every day," Isaac said of the teams relaxed vibe, " because you dont know whats going to happen but you know something goods going to happen."t; Burris, one of several influential veterans on the team, demonstrated that when he broke into an Arnold Schwarzenegger imitation as he met the media after a short practice.dddddddddddd The Ticats spent no more than half a hour Saturday on the chilly Mosaic Stadium field where the temperature was minus-16 and felt like minus-25. The forecast is better for Sundays kickoff at minus-three or four. The frigid conditions this week were new to many of the Tiger-Cats and more than a few looked uncomfortable as they stepped out onto the frozen tundra earlier in the week. Isaac, a native of South Carolina, called the frigid practice conditions "brutal" but said the team has dealt with it. Burris also noted that the Ticats had to play in plenty of cold, wet, windy and ugly conditions in Guelph. "We faced it all. Through it all, weve trumped it and we found ways to achieve triumph through those situations. So our team has been mentally prepared for whatever Mother Nature has thrown at us." And the 38-year-old Burris says that his young teammates understand that while cold is fleeting, a CFL championship is for ever. "To see how the way our guys have embraced this moment. They truly understand that if this all its going to take for us to win a championship, then hey were all up for it." Hamilton has weapons to get the job done. Led by Burris (4,927 yards), the Tiger-Cats were second to Toronto in passing while rookie C.J. Gable (782 yards) was fourth in the league in rushing. But Hamilton ranked sixth in scoring and gave up a league-high 65 sacks. And while Burris once played in Regina, Gable -- a California boy -- clearly is no fan of the cold. The Tiger-Cat defence ranked fifth in the league in points yielded at 26.0 a game (Saskatchewan led at 22.1) and has a league-worst 35 sacks. It faces a Roughrider offence that ranked second in the league in scoring (519 points). Hamilton has won the Grey Cup 15 times including eight as the Tiger-Cats. The last championship came in 1999 in a 32-21 win over Calgary at B.C. Place in Hamiltons last trip to the final. The Tiger-Cats are poised to move into their new stadium next season and owner Bob Young says the team is headed to financial stability for the first time in 42 years. A Grey Cup win would be a big shiny ribbon on that bow. Austin, who preaches accountability but gives his players room to breathe, said his team understands there are many people depending on them Sunday. "I told our players when you take the field, when you prepare during the week, youre not just doing it for your teammates ... it should matter to everybody that theres other people that it matters to. "It doesnt matter where theyre at in the organization, we have a lot of people counting on this going well. That should matter to you."
