TORONTO -- Even after his team had walked off the court with a comfortable victory, Toronto Raptors head coach Dwane Casey made no apologies for his pre-game concerns his team would take this one for granted. Desmond Trufant Jersey . "We dont have any right, yet, to overlook anyone," Casey said after the Raptors defeated the lowly Milwaukee Bucks 116-94 at Air Canada Centre on Monday night. "This is a tough league and were still building, were still getting there, so I cant allow our guys to have that in their thought process." Other than a brief stretch of the second quarter when Casey thought his team "got passive offensively and defensively" and let the Bucks cut the Toronto lead to single-digits, it was a convincing performance. Toronto, which took the lead for good on a pair of John Salmons free throws with 3:45 to go in the opening quarter, led by as many as 31 points in chalking up a third straight victory. With the win, the Raptors (19-17) are two games above .500 for the first time in four seasons. The last time was March 9, 2010 when Toronto was 32-30. The Raptors, who now have a 4 1/2 game lead over the Brooklyn Nets atop the NBAs Atlantic Division, featured a balanced attack with five players in double figures, led by Kyle Lowrys 23 points. It was the sixth straight loss for the Bucks (7-30), who are the NBAs worst team. Even though the Raptors have now won 10 of their last 11 games against teams with sub .500 records and play their next four against team who have lost more than theyve won this season, Lowry rejected suggestions Toronto might get complacent. "I dont think the schedule softens up," Lowry said. "Youre playing an NBA team every single night. "I dont care what theyre records saying, that team we played tonight is a good team. Were self motivated and were not worrying about what other teams are doing, were worried about what were doing." Lowry, Torontos point guard, hit 6-of-8 shots from the field, including 4-of-5 three-point attempts, as the Raptors finished their homestand at 3-0 before 15,819 fans. "It was just another night at the office," for Lowry, said Casey, adding hes playing like an NBA all-star. In addition to Lowrys team-high performance, DeMar DeRozan had 19 points, seven assists and seven rebounds while Jonas Valanciunas added 17 points and 10 rebounds. Ersan Ilyasova had a game-high 29 points for the Bucks, who sit last in the Central Division. Toronto led by 14 after one quarter, eight at the half and 15 points after three quarters. About the only thing that didnt go well for the home side was a trip to the foul line for Jermain Defoe, introduced earlier in the day as a new member of Toronto FC. Sitting alongside American international Michael Bradley, who was also unveiled earlier Monday and given a large ovation while sitting courtside, the Englishman missed all three shots from the charity stripe during a break in second-half action. The Raptors visit the Celtics in Boston on Wednesday night before returning to the Air Canada Centre to host the Minnesota Timberwolves on Friday night and the Los Angeles Lakers on Sunday afternoon. DeRozan said theres no concern the Raptors will look past any of their opponents. "It doesnt matter who we play, its an NBA team," DeRozan said. "Besides us, theres 29 other teams in this league and we prepare for each one of them the same. We dont want to look back at the end of the season and say we left this game or that game on the floor." Blidi Wreh-Wilson Jersey . The Vancouver coach and an announced sellout crowd of 18,910 watched in dismay as the Canucks lost 7-4 to the New York Islanders on Monday night by squandering a 3-0 lead in the third period. Jack Crawford Jersey . He made that dream a reality Wednesday night. Olt, who grew up in Branford, Connecticut, attended UConn and made a nearly 2 1-2 hour trek to Boston a handful of times to watch the Red Sox, belted a two-run homer, one of four hit by Cubs in a 16-9 rout that completed a three-game interleague series sweep. http://www.thefaclonsshoponline.com/Youth-Jalen-Collins-Falcons-Jersey/ . -- New York Yankees general manager Brian Cashman has no concerns about the health of shortstop Derek Jeter, who was limited to 17 games last season due to leg injuries.ENGLEWOOD, Colo. - The two men vying to put their fingerprints on the Lombardi Trophy are testament to the axiom that men who flop in their first NFL head coaching job can subsequently flourish.Pete Carroll and Bill Belichick were busts in their first go-around.Carroll was jettisoned by the Jets after one season and then fired by the Patriots after three years in New England, where his replacement was none other than Belichick, who had been banished by the Browns after a mediocre half-decade in Cleveland.One of them will be fitted for another diamond-encrusted ring this off-season.When the confetti falls on either the Seahawks or Patriots next Sunday, 12 of the last 18 Super Bowl champions will have been coached by men who had felt the sting of the pink slip as an NFL head coach.Before this streak, all 23 Super Bowl champions between 1974 and 1996 were led by men who were on the first NFL head coaching job.Now, retreads are all the rage.That should bode well for fans of the Broncos, Bears, Raiders and Bills. Of the six openings that have been filled so far, four have gone to men who bring head coaching experience to their new jobs: Gary Kubiak in Denver, John Fox in Chicago, Jack Del Rio in Oakland and Rex Ryan in Buffalo.Their respective resumes were cited by their new employers as a crucial factor.Fired after going 50-52, counting playoffs, with the Jets from 2009-14, Ryan landed in Buffalo, where Doug Marrone had stepped down abruptly.We were basically the only team looking for a head coach who did not fire their head coach the year before. So we decided ... that maybe we should go the veteran route, said Bills owner Terry Pegula.Others did, too.Experience was paramount, Oakland GM Reggie McKenzie said after hiring Del Rio, whose 69-73 record in Jacksonville from 2003-11 looks all the better given the Jaguars 11-42 record since.Del Rio, who spent the last three seasons as Denvers defensive co-ordinator, said hes much more comfortable and confident calling the shots and the plays now.You have an idea when youre a young coach of what you think it would be making all the decisions, and then the reality of being a head coach sets in, Del Rio said. I think theres been tremendous growth. It also was very beneficial after being a head coach, getting the past three years too go back and be a co-ordinator in a successful group, because I was able to see things from a different perspective. Sean Harlow Jersey. Kubiak had that same viewpoint in Baltimore last year when he helped rejuvenate the Ravens as their offensive co-ordinator after going 63-66 in Houston from 2006-13.That year in Baltimore was invaluable for me as a coach, being around John Harbaugh, being around that organization, being around Ozzie Newsome, watching them go about their business, how they go about being successful week in and week out, Kubiak said. I take all that with me as I move forward and I know Im a lot better coach now than I was when I left Denver in 2006 after a decade as the Broncos offensive co-ordinator.Said Ryan: Im a different man right now than I was six years ago because I lacked experience as a head coach. ... I will be a better coach now. Through experience, I dont think theres any doubt that you become more of an expert.Fox is the most experienced of all the recycled coaches. Hes 127-96 overall, including 49-22 in Denver, where his 3-4 post-season record led to a split with GM John Elway.When John became available, the game changed, Bears chairman George McCaskey said.Never mind that Fox is pushing 60, either. After all, Carroll is 63 and Belichick 62.You saw his energy. Hes got the fire in the belly, McCaskey said. Ryan Pace, the 37-year-old Bears new GM, added: I look at John as being my age.Hes a youthful personality and I think its great because he has the experience, still with the energy, Pace said. So its a perfect combination. ... You look around the league, you look at Belichick and Pete Carroll, theres a track record of these guys who come in and learn from these experiences, and get better every step of the way.Ryan said head coaches with second chances have an extra edge to them that first-timers lack: theyre driven to prove theyre not only a good coach but a better one for having failed.Yes, it is personal, theres no question about it, he said. Its embarrassing. I see myself as a good football coach and I cant wait.To join the club of recycled coaches who know that sweet taste of redemption.___AP Sports Writers Josh Dubow, John Wawrow and Andrew Seligman contributed.___AP NFL website: www.pro32.ap.org and www.twitter.com/AP_NFL Cheap NFL Jerseys Wholesale Jerseys Wholesale NFL Jerseys Jerseys From China Wholesale NFL Jerseys Cheap NFL Jerseys Cheap Jerseys ' ' '
