Philadelphia, PA (SportsNetwork.com) - Tony Wrotens go-ahead layup with 9.9 seconds remaining gave the Philadelphia 76ers their first home win of the season, a 95-92 victory over the Cleveland Cavaliers on Monday. The game was overshadowed by trade rumors involving Cavaliers guard Dion Waiters, who didnt suit up Monday. Those rumors became reality after the game, as Cleveland dealt Waiters to Oklahoma City in a three-team deal while acquiring guards J.R. Smith and Iman Shumpert from the New York Knicks. Center Alex Kirk and forward Lou Amundson also sat out and were sent to the Knicks, with the Cavs also getting a protected 2015 first-round pick from the Thunder in the swap. Wroten ended with 20 points and eight assists for the Sixers, who improved to 1-14 at home. Michael Carter-Williams tallied 18 points, 13 assists and six rebounds in his return to the lineup. It means a lot. Its our first home game win, said Carter-Williams. Were really excited, we really put the pieces together at the end of the game. We came back in the fourth, and we did all of the things we needed to do at the end of the game. Kevin Love had 28 points and 19 boards for the Cavaliers, who have lost five of six. Tristan Thompson and Joe Harris contributed 18 and 16 points, respectively, with Thompson also pulling down nine rebounds. It was tough, but we still felt like we should have won the game, said Love. We had it under control, we just didnt bury them. We felt like as a team we should have beat them. Trailing 86-76 with 6:07 to play, Philadelphia went on a 12-2 run to tie the game. Wroten tallied the final six points of the spurt, including a floater with 1:59 left to make it 88-88. Love made two free throws and put down a dunk around a Henry Sims jumper to make it 92-90. Wroten made 1-of-2 from the charity stripe to make it a one- point game. The score was the same when Clevelands Matthew Dellavedova missed two free throws with 20.6 seconds remaining. Wroten made a driving layup at the other end to put the Sixers in front. Love was unable to tip-in Dellavedovas missed layup and Philadelphias Robert Covington made two free throws with 0.3 seconds to go. The Cavaliers led 50-37 at the half before building a 17-point lead in the third quarter. Trailing 62-45 midway through the third, the Sixers went on a 10-0 run to pull within seven. Cleveland held a 68-60 edge heading to the fourth. Game Notes The Cavaliers had won three straight against the Sixers ... Sims had 12 points and seven rebounds against his former team ... Carter-Williams missed one game with a shoulder injury ... Philadelphia forward Luc Mbah a Moute sat out with turf toe ... Covington had 16 points. Air Max 200 Canada .

Air Max Tn Canada . - No matter the lineup or location, the San Antonio Spurs are rolling through the NBA again this spring, just the way they have for most of the last two decades. LAKELAND, Fla. -- Ricky Romeros comeback bid hit another road bump Tuesday in an ugly 18-4 Jays loss to a Detroit Tigers split squad. The plan was for Romero and Marcus Stroman to combine for nine innings, with none of Torontos established bullpen members along for the ride. Instead the Tigers had their way with Romero, Jeremy Jeffress, Stroman and Marcus Walden. How bad was the Jays day? Romero had a dismal outing and he was long gone before the Tigers put up nine runs in the fifth inning for a 13-0 lead. The Jays issued 11 walks and were outhit 17-6 by Detroit in three hours and 28 minutes of spring training torment. Reading Detroits linescore was like dialling Moscow: 02119302. "Today all the way around it was just a bad day, every phase of the game," said Toronto manager John Gibbons. "Ill let that one go. Ive got nothing to say. Tough for me to analyze. You were watching what I was watching." Several questions later, Gibbons did offer some analysis. "It just shows you if you dont pitch, its tough to play," he said. Romero gave up a two-run homer to Austin Jackson in the second after hitting a Tiger to put him on base and yielded another run in an unsightly third inning that featured a triple, four walks and two wild pitches. It could have been far worse, but two Tigers were caught stealing in the inning. The left-hander exited after 2 2/3 innings, giving way to Jeffress after yielding three runs on three hits with five walks, a hit batsman and two wild pitches. Unofficially Romero threw 57 pitches, 23 for strikes on a sunny 20-degree day with 8,328 on hand at scenic Joker Marchant Stadium. "Weve taken too many steps forward to dwell on this," Romero said philosophically afterwards. Romero and Jeffress walked eight between them in the first four innings. Asked afterwards if Romero would get another start, Gibbons opted not to answer. But he did note Romeros earlier improved outings. "Im encouraged. Ive seen it. So he can still build off that," he said. Likely in the minor leagues again, however. Things continued to fall apart when Stroman gave up a walk, four singles, a double and a grand slam homer to Don Kelly in a fifth inning that went from bad to worse. It took Stroman, a first-round pick in the 2012 draft, seven batters to record an out in the inning. Walden, a fellow minor-leaguer, took over and the onslaught continued as Ian Kinsler slammed a three-homer over the left-field fence. Jeffress walked three and struck out two while giving up an unearned run in 1 1/3 inning. Stroman got one out, at the expense of six hits and seven earned runs. Walden gave up five earned runs on six hits in 1 1/3 innings. While Romero suffered a meltdown on the mouund, Toronto bats were quiet against Tigers starter Drew Smyly.dddddddddddd Melky Cabrera, with a single and double, and Colby Rasmus (walk) were the only Jays to get on base in Smylys five innings. Toronto finally got on the board in the sixth inning with four runs against reliever Blaine Hardy. And the scoreboard kept ticking with Detroit adding three in the sixth and two in the eighth. Randy Boone and Justin Jackson also pitched for Toronto. Romero had seemed to be writing a story with a happier ending this spring. He came into Tuesdays game having given up one run in seven innings for an ERA of 1.29 in three appearances that saw him strike out six and walk five. "The big talk of camp right now is Ricky Romero," Gibbons said last Thursday. "It looks like hes on the way back, and thats what excites us all." Romero had limited the Tampa Bay Rays to one run in four innings in his last outing with two of those innings clinical 1-2-3 affairs. Tuesday was his first start of the spring and it went south after a first inning that saw him give up a leadoff single but get it back with a double play. Romero gave up three runs on three hits, walking five with no strikeouts. He had two wild pitches and hit a batsman. Three Tiger base-running errors limited the damage. Romero said he wasnt following through on his delivery, for some reason, and had trouble with his off-speed pitches. "Its a bad outing," he said. "Ive had three good outings. It happens as a pitcher ... My heads up. Its just a bad day." While saying he didnt want to make excuses, Romero somewhat strangely referred to a "weird weather day" in noting "the balls were a little slick and just kept coming out of my hand." Romero was an all-star in 2011 when he went 15-11 with a 2.92 earned-run average. In 2012, he slumped to 9-14 with a 5.77 ERA and things got worse in 2013, when he saw action in just four games in the majors with an 0-2 record and 11.05 ERA. The 29-year-old Los Angeles native spent most of last season in the minors where he went 5-8 with 5.52 ERA. A non-roster invitee this spring, Romero is due to make US$7.75 million both this season and next. Also Tuesday, left-hander Mark Buehrle and right-hander Brandon Morrow faced each other in an intra-squad game at the Jays minor-league complex. Morrow threw 3 2/3 innings with four hits, two runs (both earned), two walks and two strikeouts on 63 pitches. Buehrle went 4 1/3 innings with five hits, three runs (two earned), two walks and three strikeouts on 81 pitches. NOTES -- Tigers star Miguel Cabrera was part of the lineup playing the Mets .... Former Jay Rajai Davis was an injury scratch (hamstring) Tuesday. ' ' '
