TORONTO - It was one year ago Monday that the Raptors made the trade that brought Patrick Patterson to Toronto and altered the course of their future. Jake McGee Jersey .Patterson marked his anniversary by proving his worth — once again.Lou Williams poured in 26 points, and Patterson drained two huge three-pointers late in the fourth quarter, as the Raptors topped the Denver Nuggets 112-107 in overtime Monday.Its a huge responsibility that I want to have, whether its hitting crunch-time situation shots like that or hitting game-changing shots like that, said Patterson, who finished with 19 points. Thats what I want to do, thats what I want to be known for, my energy and my three-point shooting. Its just all about knocking it down and having confidence out there.Williams and Pattersons combined 49 points alone blew away Denvers entire bench, which totalled just 17. Jonas Valanciunas — with 18 points and 12 rebounds — and Kyle Lowry — with 13 points and 13 assists — both had double-doubles on the night for the Eastern Conference-leading Raptors (16-5).Terrence Ross finished with 16 for Toronto, which was playing their fifth game without injured all-star DeMar DeRozan.The Raptors sent Rudy Gay to Sacramento on Dec. 8 of last year, sending Patterson, Greivis Vasquez and Chuck Hayes to the Kings in a deal that turned Torontos sagging season on its ear and ended in a thrilling playoff run.It does not feel like a year. It literally feels like I got traded yesterday, Patterson said. Time flies by when youre having fun and being with these guys, being with this team, this organization, each and every guy in this locker-room makes every single day fun.Much of Monday wasnt so fun, as Toronto coughed up a 17-point first-half lead in front of an Air Canada Centre capacity crowd of 19,800 that included former Raptor Charles Oakley, and led only 82-81 going into the fourth quarter.The Raptors couldnt buy a basket in the fourth, jacking up long-range shots that missed the mark until they found themselves trailing by five points with 2:41 to go.Then Patterson connected for two three-pointers within two minutes, his second pulling the Raptors even at 102-102 with 28 seconds left.Patterson said his strategy was to scream my lungs off to make Lowry see him out at the three-point line.I didnt think Kyle saw me, Patterson said. He got trapped along the baseline. Im thankful that he did see me and made a pass and it went in.Then with the ACC crowd on its feet, Denver turned the ball over on a shot-clock violation, sending the game into the five-minute overtime period.Ross, who finished 1-for-8 from three-point range, finally drained one in overtime.You have to continue with it and trust that theyre going to fall, Raptors coach Dwane Casey said on his teams three-point shooting. T-Ross was zero-for-whatever and then he made that last one which was huge. You have to continue to shoot it, and trust that theyre going to fall.Lowry found Johnson under the basket with 2:10 to go for an easy bucket that put the Raptors up 109-105. And then, with 54 seconds left, Williams stepped back and calmly drained a three, to seal Torontos victory.The Raptors are 14-0 this season after leading after three quarters, a streak that actually stretches back 39 games to April 1, 2013. Toronto has now allowed opponents to score 100-plus points in eight straight games.Casey praised Pattersons effort, saying the forwards activity and his energy are unbelievable as far as the way he comes into the game and impacts the game.He wasnt thrilled with the teams defensive performance.The one thing I will take is effort, the coach said. I thought the guys really busted their behinds and really gave it to us down the stretch and found a way to win. Thats all you can ask. We made some mistakes, thats why they put erasers on pencils.Arron Afflalo had 25 points, while Ty Lawson added 22 for the Nuggets (9-12), who lost for the fourth straight night.No one likes to lose, Afflalo said. When were winning we get confident with how were playing the game, and start seeing some positive results, and I think things will change. When youre losing, its tough.Valanciunas led the way with 10 points and five boards in a first quarter that saw the Nuggets shoot a whopping 68 per cent. A pair of Williams free throws gave the Raptors a seven-point lead with 30 seconds to go, and they led 35-30 to end the quarter.Williams scored nine straight points early in the second to help the Raptors to a 17-point lead, and Toronto took a 62-52 advantage into the halftime break.The Raptors saw their double-digit disappear in the third, as the Nuggets outscored them 29-20 in the frame. Denver used a 22-7 run to pull to within a point on a jumper by Afflalo with 2:09 left in the quarter, and led by one going into the fourth.The Raptors were coming off their worst offensive performance of the season in a 105-91 loss last Friday to the Cavaliers. They face LeBron James and the Cavs again Tuesday in Cleveland.Theyre back home to host the Indiana Pacers on Friday.___Follow @ewingsports on Twitter Sam Hilliard Jersey . Granato was an assistant for the Pittsburgh Penguins for the last five seasons, and he was also part of Team USAs staff at the 2014 Olympics. Trevor Story Jersey .Brazil midfielder Ricardo Goulart scored the winner in the 50th minute to give the defending champion a four-point advantage in the standings over second-place Sao Paulo, which beat rival Palmeiras 2-0. https://www.cheaprockiesjerseys.us/1574t-michael-cuddyer-jersey-rockies.html .S.-Cuba relations means baseball prospects get off the island and into the major leagues without payoffs to smugglers and threats from kidnappers, its hard to see the downside.CARDIFF -- Wales coach Warren Gatland made six changes to its starting line-up to face Scotland at the Millennium Stadium on Saturday in the Six Nations.

Webb has been released by the team following his ankle injury. The rest of the backs are unchanged from Sundays 29-18 loss at Twickenham that shattered Wales hopes of retaining its title while Gethin Jenkins will become Wales most-capped player when he makes his 105th appearance in the pack.? Jenkins will play alongside foorwards Ken Owens and Rhodri Jones, who have been handed their first starts of the campaign. Dante Bichette Jersey. In the second row, Luke Charteris returned from injury alongside Alun Wyn Jones. "Saturday is an opportunity for us to put in a performance we know we can, and finish the Six Nations on a high," Gatland said. "Scotland will come looking to play some rugby. They had a morale-boosting win against Italy and were unlucky to lose against France in recent weeks." ------ Wales: Liam Williams, Alex Cuthbert, Jonathan Davies, Jamie Roberts, George North, Dan Biggar, Mike Phillips, Gethin Jenkins, Ken Owens, Rhodri Jones, Luke Charteris, Alun Wyn Jones, Dan Lydiate, Sam Warburton, Taulupe Faletau.
