TORONTO -- DeMar DeRozan had zero intention of losing to the Golden State Warriors for a second time this season. DeRozan had one of his best games of the season as he scored 32 points to lead the Raptors past the Warriors 104-98 on Sunday afternoon, with the memory of Toronto giving up a 27-point lead to Golden State in December still lingering in his mind. "It was a big win, big win against a great Western Conference team," DeRozan said. "Especially with the way we lost at their place. The way that we lost was definitely tough, we understood that coming into tonight so it was definitely a big win." Acknowledging that the December loss was something Raptors players had thought about coming into Sundays contest, DeRozan downplayed his own stellar offensive output. "I just got out and played, to be honest," DeRozan said. "Just try to go out there and play to win. I understand that every game we go out and play, how important it is and everybody in this locker-room really wants to make the playoffs so Im just going out there doing whatever I can." DeRozan did more than just play on Sunday afternoon. He won the efficiency battle against Stephen Curry to give Toronto its first victory against the Warriors with Golden States all-star guard in the lineup. While Curry finished with 34 points on 13-for-27 shooting, DeRozan put in an all-star performance, scoring his 32 points on 10-for-16 shooting from the floor and 11-for-12 from the line. He also recorded four rebounds, six assists and a steal. Kyle Lowry added 13 points and eight assists for Toronto (33-26), while Patrick Patterson had 12 points and five rebounds. Currys 34 points for Golden State (36-24) were a game-high. David Lee added 20 points and 11 rebounds. While DeRozan was quiet about his own big night, he was effusive in his praise of his point guard. "Whatever I say about Kyle is an understatement," DeRozan said. "We go off him to be honest, man. We just ride off him, thats a hell of a player right there. Hes there reason why Im getting 30 points." Golden State went ahead by five points early in the fourth quarter before the Raptors reeled off an 11-0 run to take a 92-86 lead with less than six minutes remaining. Torontos fourth quarter scoring attack was led by DeRozan who scored 12 of his 32 in the quarter. "We just lost our composure on the offensive end a little bit and didnt play solid enough on the other end in the last five minutes," Curry said. "We had a five-point lead with eight minutes left, they went on an 11-0 run and we didnt have an answer for it." The game was close throughout, with Toronto holding a five-point lead at halftime. Things remained tight in the third with Curry scoring 14 in the quarter. The Warriors took a three-point advantage into the final quarter, ahead 78-75. Toronto shot 57 per cent through the first quarter, but found themselves behind by three at the end of one. Terrence Ross missed the game for the Raptors after spraining his ankle in the first half of Torontos triple-overtime loss to the Washington Wizards on Thursday. Landry Fields started in his place. It was the second start for Fields this season and he made his presence felt early, scoring six points in the opening quarter. After the game, Fields was singled out by coach and teammates for stepping up when he was needed. Casey said he went with Fields in the starting lineup because of what he could bring to the floor defensively. "He got switched off on Curry a few times and I thought his length helped us," Casey said. "Im a defensive guy and if guys are willing to play defence theyre going to have a big advantage over guys who are not defensive minded. Landry has done that for us and I commend him on his professionalism. Not playing at all, he was ready to go when his number was called." Lowry echoed the words of his coach. "Landrys just being professional," Lowry said. "He hasnt played in a while and he comes in tonight, unbelievable defensive effort. Saved me a few times by cutting backdoor, just being there and being athletic the way he can play. Hes been through a lot and youre just happy for him as a player, as a teammate. Youre happy for the opportunity and the things he was able to do tonight." For a team that has continued to say that they are 15 players deep, seeing a teammate step up meant a lot to the Raptors locker room. "Weve got great 15, 14, 13 guys. Weve got guys, Julyan (Stone), (Dwight) Buycks, Landry (Fields), Steve (Novak), theyve been true professionals. People dont see it from the outside looking in, but theyre as big a part as this team as anybody." Jermaine ONeal was not available for the Warriors after the team discovered he was missing his passport. ONeal had been with the team for their previous game against New York and head coach Mark Jackson said the team would meet him in Indiana for their Tuesday night game against the Pacers.

Then came an incredible flurry of touchdowns -- five over the final 125 seconds -- that truly made this a one-of-a-kind, unforgettable football game. After Joe Flacco threw a 9-yard touchdown pass to rookie Marlon Brown with 4 seconds left to give the Baltimore Ravens a 29-26 victory over the Minnesota Vikings on Sunday, the Ravens couldnt contain their excitement. "Do you believe in miracles?" cornerback Jimmy Smith shouted as he ran off the field. "What just happened?" Ravens kicker Justin Tucker exclaimed. The game featured six different lead changes in the fourth quarter. That is the most fourth-quarter lead changes in a single game in NFL history. And Jacoby Jones, who took a kickoff back 77 yards for a touchdown during the back-and-forth excitement, said: "You couldnt even get emotional. It was too confusing." Browns catch concluded a five-play, 80-yard drive that took only 41 seconds. Before that: --Dennis Pitta, in his season debut following a hip injury, caught a 1-yard, fourth-down pass from Flacco for a 15-12 lead with 2:05 remaining. --Toby Gerhart, subbing for an injured Adrian Peterson, ran 41 yards to put Minnesota up 19-15 with 1:27 to go. -- Jones went the distance with the ensuing kickoff to give Baltimore a 22-19 edge with 1:16 left. -- Matt Cassel threw a 79-yard touchdown pass to Cordarrelle Patterson with 45 seconds to play. Then the Ravens (7-6) answered with one final salvo. "Ive never seen a game like that before," Baltimore linebacker Terrell Suggs said. "Besides the Super Bowl, thats probably the most special win Ive been a part of. Crazy game." Baltimore (7-6) has its first three-game winning streak of the season and the inside track for the second AFC wild card. Minnesota (3-9-1) lost Peterson in the second quarter with an ankle injury, then dropped a game it appeared to have won. Twice. It also was officially eliminated from playoff contention. "There were so many momentum shifts in the last couple of minutes, it seemed like the game would never end," Cassel said. Peterson, the NFLs leading rusher and 2012 MVP, hurt his right foot in the second quarter after catching a short pass and being tackled near the sideline by linebacker Arthur Brown. "We did X-rays, and it came back pretty clear," said Peterson, who finished with 13 yards on seven carries. "The next step is to get an MRI done (Monday) and find out more." Gerhart gained 89 yards on 15 attempts. Cassel went 17 for 28 yards for 265 yards. Flacco completed 28 of 50 passes for 245 yards and three interceptions. "It was unlikely that we win this game today," he said, "but we did." The Vikings took their first lead, 12-7, when Cassel threw an 8-yard pass to Jerome Simpson after an interception by safety Andrew Sendejo. Baltimore then moved to the Minnesota 21 before Vonta Leach was stuffed on a fourth-and-1. That appeared huge, but the teams had plenty of time left to run up and down the sloppy field. "You think youve seen everything and then a game like this happens," Tucker said. "To sum it up in one word, it was pandemonium." Minnesota went to overrtime in each of its previous two games.dddddddddddd And then this. "These losses, you dont practice this hard to come up short," coach Leslie Frazier said. "Its tough for our guys, its tough for our staff, its very disappointing. You practice and work as hard as we do to get wins, and youve got to be able to make those plays to get those wins." Before the game and in the first quarter, small tractors with plows and workers with shovels tried to clear the snow, to no avail. After the snow let up, tractors moved it from between the hash marks and shovels cleared the yard lines. The wet football and messy field had an immediate impact. Flacco underthrew his receiver and was intercepted by Chad Greenway to end the opening possession, and the Vikings second drive ended when Gerhart fumbled. The ball was recovered by safety Matt Elam at the Minnesota 25, and Flacco slipped and skidded for 22 yards before passing to Ed Dickson for a 1-yard touchdown. It became apparent early that scoring would be difficult, and more so for the Vikings after Peterson left. So Frazier kept his offence on the field on a fourth-and-3 at the Baltimore 38. The Vikings converted to set up a 39-yard field goal by Blair Walsh -- a kick that followed a good deal of preparation by holder Jeff Locke, who used a towel to clear the placement spot. Walsh added a 40-yarder in the third quarter after Cassel completed a 19-yard pass to Greg Jennings. NOTES: Ravens LB Elvis Dumervil was inactive (ankle). ... Vikings TE John Carlson left with a concussion. ... Baltimore moved over .500 for the first time since being 3-2. Minnesota went to overtime in each of its previous two games. And then this. "These losses, you dont practice this hard to come up short," coach Leslie Frazier said. "Its tough for our guys, its tough for our staff, its very disappointing. You practice and work as hard as we do to get wins, and youve got to be able to make those plays to get those wins."
