(SportsNetwork. Hunter Henry Jersey .com) - Two Eastern Conference titans clash Friday night when the conference-leading Atlanta Hawks visit Air Canada Centre to face the Toronto Raptors. The Hawks own a four-game cushion over the Washington Wizards for east supremacy, while the Raptors trail by 4 1/2 games and sit third in the conference. The Hawks have won 10 straight and 24 of their last 26. They own a franchise- best 10-game road winning streak and face stiff challenges to end this current four-game sojourn. After facing the Raptors on Friday, the Hawks battle the Chicago Bulls on Saturday. The winning streak reached 10 games with a 105-91 victory over the Boston Celtics on Wednesday. Despite missing Al Horford and Kyle Korver, the Hawks had no problem dispatching the Celtics. Playing back-to-back games against Philadelphia and Boston, the Hawks decided to give their five starters some rest with Jeff Teague, Paul Millsap and DeMarre Carroll sitting out Tuesdays win over the 76ers. Were playing as a group, Millsap said. Were not playing as a bunch of individuals. All three came back with impressive efforts. Carroll and Teague led all scorers with 22 points apiece, and Millsap added 18 points with 10 rebounds. Mike Scott chipped in 11 off the bench. The game was tied after one quarter, but Atlanta shot 63.2 percent in the second and pulled away. The Hawks used a 12-0 run to break a tie and held a lead for the rest of the game. The Raptors received a huge boost last time out. DeMar DeRozan returned from a groin injury to score 20 points and the Raptors led wire-to-wire for a much-needed 100-84 win over the 76ers on Wednesday night. DeRozan played 29 minutes after missing the previous 21 games with a muscle tear in his groin. It was better than what I thought it was, DeRozan said of his return. I felt good. We just wanted to see how I felt, get that first one under my belt and go from there with it. Lou Williams added 19 points and Kyle Lowry scored 18 with 12 assists for the Raptors, who led by as much as 20 but didnt take a double-digit lead for good until Patrick Pattersons 3-pointer with under seven minutes remaining. Jonas Valanciunas chipped in 12 points for Toronto and Amir Johnson scored 10 with 16 rebounds. The Atlantic Division leaders have been on a bit of a slide, losing five of their past seven games. They are 2-2 on a six-game homestand, which ends Saturday against the New Orleans Pelicans. The Raptors have won three straight against the Hawks, but Atlanta is 5-3 in its last eight north of the border. Thats a tad misleading considering the three losses for the Hawks in Toronto have come in their last three visits.

The 31-year-old dangerman set up two goals and scored two himself as Toronto FC rallied from a 2-0 deficit to defeat the slumping Houston Dynamo 4-2 on Saturday night. http://www.authenticchargersnflfansmall ... ersey.aspx . They were expecting him there all along. The Pacers announced Friday night that George has been cleared "to return to normal basketball activity," a decision made three days after he was concussed in Game 2 of the Indiana-Miami series. VANCOUVER -- Losing some of its top executives leaves Hockey Canada with some big skates to fill. But Canada has the depth of talent to remain a winner on the international stage, says the man who coached the mens team to back-to-back Olympic gold medals. "I am really confident," Detroit Red Wing coach Mike Babcock said Monday. "The group at Hockey Canada have done great things and have lots of different people. "Thats part of it. Different people get opportunities. They grow from it and they move on. A new group will get an opportunity and thats great." Steve Yzerman, Team Canadas executive director at the last two Winter Olympics, has already said he will not lead the team at the 2018 Games at Pyeongchang, South Korea. Bob Nicholson, who spent 16 years as president and chief executive officer of Hockey Canada, stepped down in May to take a job overseeing business operations for the Edmonton Oilers of the NHL. Under Nicholson, Canadian hockey teams won seven Olympic gold medals. Brad Pascall, Hockey Canadas vice-president of hockey operations and national teams, has joined the NHLs Calgary Flames as an assistant general manager. Yzerman said Nickolson always stressed that Hockey Canadas role was to develop people for the next level. "Not only for players, but also for coaches, for managers, for all people," said Yzerman, the former Detroit star who is now general manager of the Tampa Bay Lightning. "I think Bobs great legacy at Hockey Canada is the structure he set up and the mentality of what we are trying to do in Canada with hockey. Great people will fill those shoes. With Bob Nicholson, those are big skates to fill. But I have no doubt there are tremendous people in this country with a passion and drive. The program will continue to succeed." Babcock and Yzerman were in Vancouver as part of the Hockey Canada Foundation Celebrity Classic. A Monday night gala paid tribute to the 2014 Order of Hockey Canada honourees coach Clare Drake, player France St-Louis and Yzerman. Also attending were members of the Olympic champion mens team, the womens team that won gold at the Sochi Olympics in Russia and the team that won the womens under-18 championship in Budapest. Babcock said Canada can be proud of its Olympic success but must continue to work hard if the country hopes to remain on top of the podium in four years. "You take a lot of pride in being the best," he said. "In order to be the best you have to find the best to win. "Were going to have to continue to grow our game over the next four years. If you want to have success at the next Olympics, 2014s effort wont be good enoough to win the next one. Philip Rivers Jersey. We have to keep getting better." The NHL hasnt committed to sending its players to the 2018 Games. Among the leagues concerns are a 12-hour difference between Pyeongchang and the Eastern Time Zone, taking a break in the middle of the regular season, and the danger of players being injured. Sidney Crosby, the Canadas captain in Sochi, understands the problems but still thinks the Olympics are worth the effort. "I go back to my two experiences," said Crosby, who scored the Olympic winning goal in overtime in 2010 in Vancouver. "They were pretty good. "To think of all the things that had to happen to make them work, especially in Russia, it would be a similar case, maybe even a little more difficult the next one. Like I said, representing your country and to have those opportunities, I dont think that ever gets old, no matter what the situation. As a player, you want to be part of that." As a possible alternative to the Olympics, the NHL is discussing with the NHL Players Association about holding a World Cup of Hockey tournament in 2016. Yzerman said a World Cup has the potential to gain the same prestige as an Olympics. "It will take some time," he said. "The Olympics have been around for a long time on the world stage. If done right, I can see it being really successful." Babcock said the Olympics "are so special" because they are watched by people who are not even hockey fans. "My mom never watches sports but she watches the Olympics Games," he said. "People who are not interested in sport still follow it. "I think its the greatest opportunity, best-on-best, to celebrate the sport. Its something you want to be part of and you want other people to be part of. Its a thrill of a lifetime." All three people named to the Order of Hockey in Canada were recognized for their contributions to the game. Yzerman played 22 seasons in the NHL and played for Team Canada eight times, including at two Winter Olympics. As a member of Canadas national womens team St-Louis won five world championships and a silver medal at the 1998 Olympics. In 28 seasons as head coach of the University of Alberta Golden Bears Drake led his teams to six national championships and 17 Canada West titles. Babcock compared Drake to legendary NCAA basketball coach John Wooden. "He is one of the builders of hockey in Canada," said Babcock. "Clare is a gentleman who shared everything he had. He tried to make us all better. "He led the way so guys like myself, who werent NHL players, could one day coach in the NHL."
