Raptors lose, trio ejected as streak snaps

Toronto looks to stave off OKC for a franchise record 12th straight win Toronto looks to stave off OKC for a franchise record 12th straight win

There were plenty of notable names and teams playing with stakes involved.

A surging Thunder team visits the Celtics on Tuesday night with National Basketball Association playoff positioning on the line.

Elsewhere, James Harden buried a three-pointer inside the final minute, and the visiting Houston Rockets completed a season sweep of the Minnesota Timberwolves with a 129-120 win.

Did we accidentally get in a time machine and go back to 2008? If they are still feeling resentful of everything that transpired in the Thunder game, they could vent all that on the Orlando Magic this Tuesday.

Anthony Davis had himself a game against the Celtics on Sunday, and things got off to a great start with this lob from Rajon Rondo.

The Raptors still lead the Eastern Conference with a 52-18 win-loss record.

Russell Westbrook capped his 23rd triple-double of 37 points, 14 assists and 13 rebounds by hitting the tiebreaking layup with 39.7 seconds remaining, as the Oklahoma City Thunder snapped the host Toronto Raptors' team-record, 11-game winning streak with a hotly contested 132-125 victory on Sunday.

The NBA backed its officials Monday after reviewing video of a play a day earlier that led to the ejections of three members of the Raptors: guard DeMar DeRozan, forward Serge Ibaka and coach Dwane Casey.

Casey was apparently the victim of mistaken identity; he was ejected for something a fan said to officials. It was not a good night for the refs and all the Raptors could do was laugh.

The Thunder (43-29) remained two games behind the surging Portland Trail Blazers (44-26), who chalked up their 13th consecutive win with a 122-109 victory over the Los Angeles Clippers, for third place in the West courtesy of 23 points from Damian Lillard. They're known for making a push in the second half, but this season they've come out with a force that has pushed them far up the standings in the Western Conference. This is gonna be a poster on a wall somewhere.
