TORONTO - James Johnson hobbled to his locker Saturday night, one arm slung around Toronto Raptors teammate Jonas Valanciunas.From his locker across the room, DeMar DeRozan said loudly, to no one in particular: Move the cameramen back. Damn camera people. Theyve taken out some good men.The performances of DeRozan and Valanciunas were the highlights of the Raptors 111-93 victory over the Utah Jazz on Saturday — a night otherwise marred by an ankle injury to Johnson, when he stepped on a cameramans foot.It is an issue, DeRozan told reporters. You always hate to see someone get hurt because of that. With me experiencing guys (getting hurt), the Paul George situation (George horrifically broke his leg stepping on the basket stanchion), everything under there. Its kind of scary.Hopefully its nothing too serious with James.Coming off two uncharacteristically low-scoring games, DeRozan rediscovered his offensive form, scoring 27 points to lead the Eastern Conference-leading Raptors (8-2).Valanciunas had 17 points and 14 rebounds in his best game of the season, while Kyle Lowry had 19 points, and the Raptors dismantled the Jazz with a sizzling fourth quarter.Patrick Patterson chipped in with 16 points for Toronto, while Lou Williams scored 10 of his 13 points in the fourth.In his previous two games, DeRozan shot 4 for 15 for 16 points against Washington, then a woeful 3 for 17 for a season-low 10 points against Chicago on Thursday.But he was back in form against the Jazz, shooting 10 for 17 from the floor on an array of jumpers and dunks.When you win or you play well, everybodys hugging you and kissing and on your shoulders. But when you have a bad game, everybody wants to panic, Raptors coach Dwane Casey said.I dont know how many times Babe Ruth struck out but I guarantee you he struck out more than he hit home runs. When youre a scorer for a team like DeMar is for us, youre going to have (off) nights like that. I dont care how many he misses, hes going to come back and hit those same shots and he showed that tonight.Valanciunas hasnt been at his best all season but was solid at both ends of the court Saturday.He got himself involved tonight, Lowry said of Valanciunas. He rebounded the ball well, he played physical, he played with a lot of energy, he got himself going tonight. So we fed off his energy tonight.Derrick Favors and Enes Kanter had 18 points apiece to top Utah (4-7).Neither team led by more than seven points through three quarters that saw the lead change hands 16 times in front of a capacity crowd of 19,800 at the Air Canada Centre.Toronto has made a habit of strong fourth quarters, and Saturday was more of the same. Williams scored on a pretty 19-foot turnaround jumper that put the Raptors up by nine with just over five minutes to play.And when Lowry found a sprinting DeRozan, who finished with a massive running slam dunk, it gave Toronto a 13-point cushion with 4:24 to play and brought the fans out of their seats.The Raptors showed no mercy, as Lowry drained a three to put the home team up by 16 as they cruised to victory.The Raptors entered the game even with Chicago atop the East, but it was the Bulls that snapped Torontos five-game winning streak on Thursday, in an ugly 100-93 decision that Valanciunas had called a cold shower.The catchphrase going into Saturdays fifth of the Raptors seven-game homestand was: bounce back.It was a grind-it-out game and a lot of it is a byproduct of having some many home games every other day, a very stressful game against Chicago, Casey said. Right, wrong or indifferent, even though it was just one of 82, mentally it would wear on you. Physically, too.Johnson, who was coming off a couple of solid performances for the Raptors, left the game in the fourth quarter with a sprained right ankle — T.V. replays show he rolled it when he stepped on a cameramans foot.The mishap had Raptors GM Masai Ujiri livid after the game.Cameramen at the Air Canada Centre sit in a small apron on the baseline, their backs up against three rows of VIP seating.Utah, meanwhile, was playing the second of back-to-back games, having edged New York 102-100 the night before.Jazz coach Quin Snyder praised his young teams performance saying If you look at the game after three-and-a-half quarters, you have got to feel like there was some really good things.He also had kind words for Toronto.Thats a very good team, Snyder said. They are a team that is difficult to defend when they get going. One of the things that (Casey) does so well and its a credit to their players too, they complement one another, nobody tries to do too much, they pick their spots where everybody has a role. DeRozan scored 10 points in the first quarter, and his jumper a couple minutes into the game gave the Raptors a six-point lead. The Jazz went on an 18-8 run to go up by four, and a three-pointer by Burks at the buzzer sent Utah into second with a 25-23 lead.Kanter led the way with eight points in the second, including a 20-foot jumper that gave the Jazz a seven-point lead — their biggest at that point. A late spurt by Toronto pulled the Raptors to within 49-46 at halftime.DeRozan had 11 points in the third but it was Terrence Rosss spectacular alley-oop dunk from Lowry — Ross had to reach behind his head to catch the ball — that was the highlight of the quarter, and put Toronto up by seven.The Raptors host Memphis on Wednesday then cap their homestand against Milwaukee on Friday.NOTES: Brad Jacobs, Ryan Harnden and E.J.

Cheap Suns Jerseys . PETERSBURG, Fla. Cheap Phoenix Suns Jerseys . JOHNS, N.ST. LOUIS -- Before hiring Gregg Williams as his defensive co-ordinator for the second time, St. Louis Rams coach Jeff Fisher cleared it with NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell. Williams was part of Fishers first staff with the Rams in 2012, but only for a few weeks before getting suspended for his role in the Saints bounty scandal. After a news conference to introduce Williams Thursday, Fisher said hed been in contact with Goodell throughout the process two years ago and "I wanted to inform him about the direction I was thinking about going." "He was very excited, and he endorsed it." Before signing Williams, Fisher said the two spent a few days revisiting the 2012 experience. The suspension left the Rams in a bind and they went without a co-ordinator in 12. Fisher said then that the suspension was "warranted" and asked if hed consider Williams in the future said hed "cross that bridge when we come to it." After the 2012 season he fired Williams son, defensive line coach Blake Williams. During his suspension, Williams had no contact with the Rams but said he attended all of the home games. He was a defensive assistant last year at Tennessee and called it a "good stop." "His handprint was all over the Tennessee defence, it was obvious that hed gone in there and had a significant impact," Fisher said. "Id say 60-70 per cent of our terminology is his. I just really felt strongly about just pulling together." Fisher initiated contact a few weeks after the season ended, and believes hed surprised Williams. He made room by firing Tim Walton after one season, telling Walton hed done nothing wrong but that Williams had been his first choice. The 55-year-old Williams was defensive co-ordinator under Fisher with the Titans from 1997-2000. "Things are in perspective, things are behind him, his past is his past," Fisher said. "The arrows going up with the defence and I just felt like Gregg was the person to make sure that happens." Williams shed no light on the discussions, saying "Those are things that are between Jeff and I." He deflected a question about how hes chhanged as a coach since his suspension, saying every coach must adjust, but thought the familiarity would make this a good fit.dddddddddddd "Its fun to be back with people who think and believe the same way you are," Williams said. "So now you get a chance to spend more time with the players, because youre spending less time having to sell or defend yourself with your staff before you ever get with the players." Fisher said the hire got a big thumbs-up from players, adding "my phone was blowing up." Middle linebacker James Laurinaitis, who was at Rams Park for a workout, anticipates a more aggressive approach. The Rams have one of the NFLs top pass rushes but enter free agency and the draft needy in the secondary. "Win or lose, I want to know that were going to go down swinging," Laurinaitis said. "Everyone Ive known that has played for him just absolutely loves the guy." Williams, who grew up in Missouri, said he hoped this was his last coaching stop. Williams scoffed at a claim from a player who said the coach bragged about using a stolen playbook to help Tennessee beat Jacksonville in the 1999 AFC championship game. Williams called the allegation by former Jaguars defensive end Renaldo Wynn "a joke" and added he had every teams playbook. "Every time a free agent walks in a building, he gives you the playbook," Williams said. "We all have everybodys playbook. When you turn the film on, do you have their playbook? "How much traction did Omaha get when Peyton (Manning) said Omaha 46 times one game on TV? Whats that mean? It doesnt mean anything." Williams said hes watched all of the Rams games from last season but declined to discuss specific needs. Fisher wants his new co-ordinator to concentrate on improving a defence that was ranked 15th overall. "I told Gregg this time around hes going to be the mad scientist," Fisher said. "Hes not going to do a lot of player evaluations, Im not going to take up his time evaluating unrestricted free agents and getting ready for the draft. "I want him to take this defence and run with it."
