#1 me the first Bobcats player to record von lebaobei123 08.05.2019 01:59

CHARLOTTE, N.C. -- Al Jefferson sat at his locker pondering how the Charlotte Bobcats nearly surrendered a 30-point lead they held late in the third quarter. "Of course we had to make it a game," Jefferson said with a grin. "We couldnt enjoy an easy win, right?" It never seems that easy for the Bobcats. Despite the big lead, Jefferson and Bobcats didnt breathe a sigh of relief until Ramon Sessions knocked down two free throws with 1.6 seconds left to secure a 100-95 victory over the Toronto Raptors on Monday. Jefferson became the first Bobcats player to record a double-double in the first quarter and finished with 22 points, 19 rebounds and a season-high seven assists and the Bobcats defeated the Raptors for the seventh straight time in Charlotte. "The important thing is we came out of it with a win," Jefferson said after the Bobcats withstood a furious Toronto rally that included several 3-pointers. It was Charlottes first game without point guard Kemba Walker, whose streak of 190 straight games played -- the second-longest in franchise history -- was snapped. Walker sprained his ankle in a loss Saturday night to the Miami Heat. But the Bobcats got more than enough from their two reserve point guards as Sessions and the seldom-used Jannero Pargo combined for 40 points on 10 of 17 shooting. Sessions started and had 23 points in 34 minutes and was 10 of 11 from the line. "We knew they were going to make a run sooner or later, especially with how good theyve been playing," Sessions said. "We didnt expect it to be that big of a run." DeMar DeRozan had 25 points and Kyle Lowry had 21 for the Atlantic Division-leading Raptors, who fell to .500 after their fourth straight road loss. The Raptors were down 71-41 with 4:37 left in the third quarter when they started to find some energy. They outscored the Bobcats 28-0 on second-chance points, but it still wasnt enough. Toronto twice had chances to tie the game in the final two minutes, but Lowry missed a free throw and Greivis Vasquez couldnt connect on a long 3-pointer. "To be a championship team or even think about the playoffs, youve got to play back-to-back, you have to play nicked up, youve got to play a little fatigued," Raptors coach Dwane Casey said. "Right now, we have a bunch of guys who are giving into fatigue and nicked up. Its a long season, but, again, you tell a lot about who you are in these situations. "This was a gut-check game. In the fourth quarter, we turned it around. But its about what we did in the first three quarters that was disappointing." Despite nearly surrendering a huge lead, Bobcats coach Steve Clifford called it a "big win" for his team with Walker out of the lineup. Jefferson, who came in averaging 27.8 points and 11.5 rebounds for his previous four games, had 14 points and 12 rebounds in the first half as the Bobcats went up 55-36. But the Raptors began double teaming Jefferson in the third quarter with Chuck Hayes the primary defender. "Chuck and I are great friends, but I hate him as a defender," Jefferson said. "Hes one of those guys thats very smart and you cant move him." Things got hairy for the Bobcats when DeRozan stripped Jefferson and went the length of the floor for an uncontested layup to trim the lead to three with 2:33 left. With 26 seconds left, Lowry drove the lane, scored and drew a foul on Jefferson to cut the lead to one. But he missed the free throw that would have tied the game. Sessions hit two free throws to push the lead back to three. Vasquez, who finished with 15 points and nine assists in his best game as a Raptor, got an open look from the right corner on the next possession but missed a 3-pointer from the right corner. Walker is expected to miss about two weeks after spraining his ankle in Saturday nights loss to Miami. He had 29 points against the Raptors on Dec. 18, including a buzzer beater in a 104-102 victory. But Sessions and Pargo provided a great spark. Sessions had nine points in the first quarter and Pargo came off the bench to hit his first three shots, including two 3-pointers, in his first four minutes of play in the second quarter.

Im not helping them out at all.HOMESTEAD, Fla. - Chase Elliotts first season racing on a national level has gone smoother than anyone expected.Elliott wrapped up the Nationwide Series title last week but wont officially celebrate his championship until after Saturdays season finale at Homestead-Miami Speedway. The trophy presentation will cap a whirlwind year for the 18-year-old rookie, who didnt even have a ride last November.Elliott has three wins this season, 26 top-10 finishes in 32 races and beat JR Motorsports teammate Regan Smith for the title. It was the first Nationwide title for the team owned by Dale Earnhardt Jr., his sister Kelley, and Rick Hendrick.Crew chief Greg Ives said the biggest issues the team has faced this year has been Elliott, the youngest champion in NASCAR history, not knowing his way around the race track and adjusting to life on the road.Hell often ask where the bathrooms are. Or whats to eat, Ives said Thursday. Hes always eating somewhere. We had to start taking away the junk food out of the cabinets because his metabolism — hes trying to keep that fed. I dont even know what he was eating, but I know he was eating a lot.Earnhardt has found Elliott, the son of Hall of Fame inductee and 1988 NASCAR champion Bill Elliott, to be extremely mature for his age. Part of it is the focus Elliott has on racing — although hes risen rapidly through the ranks, his father has not funded his career and Elliott has had to earn his rides.The result is that although Elliott has the same interests as other 18-year-olds, he seems like a seasoned veteran behind the wheel.His priorities are definitely different than a lot of peoples, but hes still very focused and very driven, determined, just loves to race, enjoys being in the cars, Earnhardt said. The only time you forget hes 18 is definitely when hes behind the wheel.ddddddddddddlliotts ride came together at the start of the year, when sponsor NAPA signed on with JRM to give the company the funding it needed to field a car for Elliott. He was in his final semester of high school and desperately hoping to put a program together that would jumpstart his career.It ended several tense months for Elliott, who wasnt sure something was going to come together. He wasnt eligible for a Nationwide Series ride until his 18th birthday last November.This time a year ago, I didnt have any plans, he said. As I got closer to the off-season, had a couple of conversations with Mr. Hendrick about running just a few, just a handful of Nationwide races maybe. Still wasnt really even confirmed at that. Id have been stoked to just run five or two or one.Now hes a champion and some wonder whether he should have been moved up to the elite Sprint Cup level. Kyle Larson spent just one season in Nationwide last year before he was promoted to Cup, and Elliotts fans want their driver on the same fast track.Hendrick has indicated theyll keep him in Nationwide for now. Hendrick Motorsports does not have an open seat next year, and many believe Elliott could be Jeff Gordons successor whenever he chooses to retire.Elliott isnt worried about a Cup ride just yet, hes more focused on claiming his championship.Its really not official until Saturday night. So well kind of let it sink in then, and certainly well enjoy it this off-season and just enjoy the weekend, Elliott said. This weekend, I think, first and foremost, its going to be a lot of fun, and kind of for everybody to enjoy the last week of the season together and just go out and compete for a victory and not have to worry about the championship.
