TORONTO - When DeMar DeRozan was asked if there was anything positive to take away from such an ugly win as the Toronto Raptors victory over injury-riddled Oklahoma City on Tuesday, he wiped a hand over his exasperated brow. Nike Air Max NZ Sale .A win. Thats about it. A win, DeRozan said.Kyle Lowry wasnt quite so generous.Naw, I dont think so, Lowry said.DeRozan scored 16 points, and Lou Williams had nine of his 12 points in the fourth quarter as the Raptors defeated the Thunder 100-88 on Tuesday.But it wasnt before allowing Oklahoma City to have its way for most of the first half, and shoot 76 per cent in the opening quarter, despite playing with just eight men — none of them named Kevin Durant or Russell Westbrook.Some time this year, were going to find some defence, from somebody, somewhere, coach Dwane Casey said. I dont know when, but Im going to find it.Patrick Patterson had 14 points and eight rebounds, while Tyler Hansbrough had 12 points, and Greivis Vasquez finished with 10 for Toronto (3-1), which was missing Amir Johnson for the second straight game (sore ankle).Weve just got to learn from it, we cant keep digging ourselves a hole, and expect to fight back and have everything fall in our hands, DeRozan said. We cant give teams hope. If thats making sure we make a stop the first three or four plays, dont give them no confidence, weve got to do that.Serge Ibaka virtually carried Oklahoma City (1-4), playing a whopping 46 minutes, scoring 25 points and grabbing 11 rebounds. Lance Thomas had 14 points, while Reggie Jackson finished with 13.Casey had predicted the game would be a nightmare against a team he called a wounded animal, especially considering the Raptors have yet to play with the defensive effort he wants.Casey clearly knew what he was talking about as the Thunder was in the game until the dying minutes. Ive said this for weeks, we have no right to walk in and look at anybody and think its going to be an easy game, Casey said prior to tipoff.The Raptors took a narrow 73-70 lead into the fourth quarter, and didnt go up by double digits until Williams three-pointer with 9:23 to go put them up 83-72.We have to get better, and we will. We know were not doing as good as we want to do, Vasquez said. Were pissed. At ourselves. Because we should do better. Well take care of that.Toronto finally was able to cobble together a 16-point lead midway through the fourth, and while the Thunder pulled to within seven with three minutes to play, thats as close as they would come.Sebastian Telfair was called for a flagrant foul and ejected with just under two minutes to play, leaving the Thunder to finish the game with just six men. (A right knee contusion had already taken Perry Jones out of the game early in the second half).Im really encouraged by the guys, said Thunder coach Scott Brooks. Last resort, Ill suit up with our guys. I would love to play with our guys. I love how they compete and thats the type of group I want to be associated with.Id love to do it as long as its not shirts and skins and Im skins. You dont want to see my flabby body, he added. But I love the guys effort. Thats what the game is all about.Injury-bitten Oklahoma City is off to its worst start since going 1-15 in 2008-09.

The Thunder, which shot 12 for 17 in the frame, went into the second leading 30-23.Ive told them until my eyes turn red.

A bucket by Hansbrough gave the Raptors a seven-point advantage with 1:23 to play, but the scrappy Thunder battled back to cut Torontos lead to 73-70 with a quarter left to play.The Raptors werent immune to the injury bug Thursday, losing Jonas Valanciunas just before halftime when he collided with someone and suffered a facial contusion.The Raptors were coming off a 107-102 loss at Miami on Sunday.The Raptors are in Boston on Wednesday to play the Celtics then back home to host the Washington Wizards on Friday and the Philadelphia 76ers on Sunday.

Obviously, the season hasnt been anything like we had hoped for, or our fans had hoped for, and yet I think it was important that we found a way to finish it on a good note.As promised, Bucs coach Lovie Smith gave more playing time than usual to some of his younger players, particularly in the second half.With the lead if you play pretty good defence you should be able to hold onto that, Smith said.
