The Toronto Raptors played their way out of a four-game slide on home court on Saturday and will try to continue that momentum tonight against another weak Eastern Conference squad in the Detroit Pistons. Jonathan Isaac Magic Jersey . You can watch the game on TSN2 beginning at 7:30pm et/4:30pm pt, with coverage available on TSN Radio 1050 at 7pm et. Toronto (25-11) found itself trending in the opposite direction with a season-worst four-game skid before notching a 109-96 win over Boston on Saturday. The Raptors had allowed 114.0 points per game during their losing streak, but forced 13 turnovers in the second and third quarters while outscoring the Celtics 63-39. I thought our defensive mojo was back, coach Dwane Casey said. I saw guys moving their feet, cracking down, rebounding, doing the things we needed to do with activity and anticipation. DeMar DeRozan will not dress for the Raptors tonight. The team still hopes to have him back this week but are without a specific timetable. DeRozan was injured on Nov. 28 vs. the Dallas Mavericks James Johnson, who started his sixth game of the season Saturday, figures to receive plenty of playing time Monday against Detroit after he recorded 15 points, 10 rebounds and two blocks against Boston for his second double-double this season. He can guard the bigger wings, he can block shots, he can handle the ball, he gives us another ball handler, Casey said. We knew that with James. Hes a talented young man. Johnson had 12 points off the bench when the Raptors beat the Pistons 110-100 at The Palace on Dec. 19, though that game might be best remembered for his extracurricular activity with Andre Drummond. Detroits big man smashed into Johnson with his forearm and hip after being dunked on in the fourth quarter, setting off a melee that saw Drummond get a flagrant foul and four technicals called. Kyle Lowry had only 15 points on 5-of-14 shooting in that win, Torontos fourth straight in the series. The Detroit Pistons recent play has them more closely resembling one of the leagues top teams rather than the last-place club in the Central Division. The Pistons (13-24) have won eight of nine contests since they waived Josh Smith on Dec. 22. Their offensive output has risen from 94.4 to 106.2 points per game, their field-goal percentage has jumped from 41.3 to 46.5 percent, their turnovers are down (13.8 to 12.6), their assists are up (20.4 to 22.8) and theyve allowed 94.3 points per game after yielding 101.1 in their first 28. Its fun, man, Jonas Jerebko told the Pistons official website. Its fun back at The Palace. Ive seen it a few times, but its fun seeing it two days in a row. The city is really coming behind us. Were trying to show them a good product thats easy to sell. I think its pretty fun to watch us play right now. Since Dec. 26, the Pistons are 5-0 on the road and 3-1 at home, losing only to Southeast-leading Atlanta 106-103 on Friday. They bounced back the next night at The Palace, downing Brooklyn 98-93 behind 20 points and 11 assists from Brandon Jennings and 17 rebounds from Greg Monroe. After owning the NBAs third-worst record on Christmas, Detroit now finds itself just three games out of the eighth spot in the Eastern Conference with 45 games to play. It was big, Kyle Singler said of Saturdays win. Coach (Stan Van Gundy) said something after the game last night saying were not falling back into losing and going backwards. This was big for us.

General Manager Sam Presti said the three-time All-Star had knee swelling that would not subside, and the procedure was intended to solve the problem. He said doctors determined that a loose stitch was to blame for the swelling, that Westbrooks lateral meniscus has healed properly and the procedure was successful.LAS VEGAS, Nev. - Frankie (The Answer) Edgar dominated B.J. Penn en route to a third-round TKO on "The Ultimate Fighter" Season 19 finale card Sunday night, defeating The Prodigy for a third time. Penn, who had come out of retirement for the fight, promptly called it quits again. Edgar (16-4-1) was too quick for a sluggish Penn, who had no answers in a lopsided battle of former champions before 6,500 at the Mandalay Bay Events Center. Penn (16-10-2) occupied the centre of the cage but did little while Edgar circled and attacked. When Edgar took Penn down, he hurt him repeatedly. Referee Herb Dean finally stopped the carnage at four minutes 16 seconds of the third round. "Frankie did a great job," said Penn. "I shouldnt have come back. I shouldnt have been in the ring tonight." And the 35-year-old Hawaiian said hes headed back to retirement. "Of course, this is the end," an emotional Penn told the post-fight news conference after getting stitches. "Im thinking to myself why did you step back in the Octagon after the beating that Rory MacDonald gave you (in December 2012)? The reason is because I really needed to find out. If I didnt make this night happen for myself, I would have always wondered ... I guess I just needed some closure." Despite the bloody loss, Penn said he would have regretted not fighting more. UFC president Dana White didnt stick around to watch the whole fight. "What more do you want, B.J.?" he told the post-fight news conference before Penn arrived. "Theres nothing left to prove." Penn, a baseball cap hiding the damage around his eyes, lowered his head to the table at one point when asked about his legacy. He was too emotional to speak. White jumped in to fill the void. "Hes one of the best 155-pounders of all time," White said. "He built that weight class and he was responsible for helping build the UFC. Thats his legacy." Unlike the first two fights, which were held in the lightweight (155-pound) division, Penn and Edgar met this time as featherweights (145 pounds). Edgar, who was a 4-1 favourite Sunday, took away Penns lightweight title in 2010 and then beat him again in a rematch four months later. He later lost the 155-pound crown to Benson Henderson. Penn, who also once held the welterweight title, last fought in late 2012 when he was beaten comprehensively by Canadas MacDonald in Seattle. He asked to come back to have another crack at the 32-year-old Edgar, with the UFC appointing them rival coaches on the reality TV show. Edgar had gone 2-3-1 since their first two fights while Penn went 1-2-1 before retiring after the MacDonald loss. Sunday marked Penns 23rd fight in the UFC, fourth most in UFC history. It was Edgars 16th trip to the Octagon. A serene Penn ran out to cheers and the familiar Hawaiian strains of the late Israel Kamakawiwoole, although the music quickly morphed into an uptempo remix. The lights dimmed and the pro-Penn crowd started booing. Edgar ran in to "Kick in the Door" by The Notorious B.I.G. The fight started as the first two did. Edgar darted in and out while Penn looked — unsuccessfully — to connect. Edgar scored an early takedown, alternating with launching kicks at the downed Penn and jumping back on top of him. Dean eventually let Penn get up, to cheers from the crowd. It was more of the same in tthe second as Penn chased the speedy Edgar to little effect before being taken down. Jonathan Isaac White Jersey. The round ended with Edgar scoring with heavy blows from above. Penns face was showing damage as the third round began. The Hawaiian tripped midway through the round, finding himself on his back again. An elbow opened Penns face up as Edgar scored at will in a painful round to watch. "I almost feel bad about it," Edgar said of the finish. The card, coming on the heels of UFC 175 Saturday night, marked the finale to International Fight Week in Las Vegas. The Season 19 finalists were all from Edgars team, marking only the second time in TUF history that one team filled all four spots (Canada also did it in the "TUF Nations: Canada vs. Australia" series. Middleweight Eddie (Truck) Gordon overpowered Dhiego Lima in 71 seconds to win the 185-pound Season 19 crown. Gordon (8-1) put Lima down with a pair of overhead rights at the fence and then landed a dozen more blows until Montreal referee Yves Lavigne stepped in. The 30-year-old Gordon, who trains with UFC middleweight champion Chris Weidman, has a degree in finance, marketing and communication from Fordham University. Lima (10-2), who fought five times in the Edmonton-based Maximum Fighting Championship, was competing one division above his normal welterweight class. It was an almost exact replay in the 205-pound final as Corey (Beastin 25/8) Anderson hurt Matt (Gutter) Van Buren (7-3) early and often. The fight was stopped after just 61 seconds. Anderson (5-0) has a degree in business administration from the University of Wisconsin-Whitewater and a liberal arts degree from Lincoln College. Both winners earned a UFC contract and a Harley-Davidson motorcycle. Coaches aside, Season 19 was seen as one of the more disappointing in the series history. White admitted Saturday night that he tried not to think about it any more. Saturdays fight was Penns first at 145 pounds, adding another chapter that has seen him fight all over the weight map, including heavyweight. He looked ripped at Fridays weigh-in — "awesome," according to White. While an icon in the sport and one of only two fighters to win UFC championships in two different weight classes (Randy Couture was the other), Penn came into Sundays card having won just one of his last six bouts. Two of those losses were to Edgar. Also beaten by Nick Diaz, he defeated former welterweight champion Matt Hughes and fought Jon Fitch to a draw. Canadians went 1-1 on the undercard. Sarah (Cheesecake) Moras (4-1) of Kelowna, B.C., won her UFC debut with a 29-28, 29-28, 30-27 decision over Alexis (Sneaky Zebra) Dufresne (5-1) in a fight contested mainly on the ground. Lightweight Jesse (The Body Snatcher) Ronson (13-5) lost a 29-28, 28-29, 30-27 decision to Kevin (The Motown Phenom) Lee, finishing on the wrong end of a split decision for the third UFC fight in a row. Earlier on the main card, flyweight Dustin Ortiz won a 29-28, 28-29, 29-28 split decision over Justin (Tank) Scoggins (9-1), Ortiz (14-3) is ranked 13th among 125-pound contenders. Heavyweight Derrick (The Black Beast) Lewis stopped American-based Brazilian Guto Inocente (6-3) with some nasty ground-and-pound in the first round. Then the 264-pound Lewis (11-2 with on no contest) somehow made it to the top of the fence to celebrate his second win in as many UFC fights.
