(SportsNetwork. DeMar DeRozan Jersey .com) - The Phoenix Suns will take a six-game winning streak into the Big Easy Tuesday night when they face the New Orleans Pelicans at Smoothie King Center. The Suns havent lost since Dec. 15 at home against the Milwaukee Bucks. Since, Phoenix won six straight, including five in a row as the visitor. The Suns will end a four-game road swing Wednesday night versus the Oklahoma City Thunder. The Suns most recent victory came Sunday night with a 116-107 road win over the Los Angeles Lakers. The Suns point guard trio combined for 61 points as Phoenix has taken a two- game lead for the eighth seed in the Western Conference. Goran Dragic scored a game-high 24 points, Eric Bledsoe posted 22 with eight rebounds and eight assists and Isaiah Thomas had 15 off the bench for the suddenly red-hot Suns. Markieff Morris and P.J. Tucker finished with 12 each for a Suns team which shot 50.6 percent from the field. We stayed focused, said Suns coach Jeff Hornacek. Eric had a rough start but he gave us a big lift in the third quarter. The Pelicans have traded wins and losses over the last six to stay at .500. Last time out, the Pelicans fell in Chicago, 107-100, to the Bulls. Chicago native Anthony Davis had 29 points to pace the Pelicans, who failed to build on a 97-90 home win over San Antonio Friday night. Tyreke Evans scored 26 and Jrue Holiday notched 19 with seven assists. Davis, who attended Perspectives Charter High School in Chicago, went 13-of-24 from the field and had 11 rebounds and six blocks. Theyre very good, possibly the best team in the league, Davis said of the Bulls. They have all types of weapons. Ryan Anderson, who had 13 points for the Pelicans, had a streak of 42 made free throws snapped with 3:29 left in the first quarter. It was his first miss since Nov. 29 at Washington These two teams figure to be in contention for the final playoff berth in the Western Conference later in the spring. The Suns own a four-game winning streak over the Pelicans and are 8-2 in their last 10 in this series. Phoenix is 4-1 in its last five staged in the Big Easy. Kyle Lowry Jersey . Cilic cruised to victory, beating the seventh-seeded Seppi 6-1, 6-3 in just 72 minutes. He faced only one break point, winning 24 out of 29 points played on the first serve. Vince Carter Jersey . Top-ranked Rafael Nadal was also taken to three sets but emerged with a 6-3, 6-7 (3), 6-3 win over Tobias Kamke of Germany, while second-seeded David Ferrer joined Murray in making an early exit after a 6-4, 7-5 loss to Daniel Brands of Germany. http://www.nbaraptorsonline.com/Authentic-Delon-Wright-Raptors-Jersey/ . It was the start of one nice night for the goalie and the Minnesota Wild. Backstrom made 33 saves in his first win of the season and the Wild defeated the Chicago Blackhawks 5-3 on Saturday in a rematch of their first-round playoff series.TORONTO - As Kyle Lowry was tended to, lying motionless on the floor after being kneed in the head, not once but twice, the Raptors fate hung in the balance alongside him. It turned out to be the longest minute of the season for a team that has come to rely so heavily on the resolve of its tough-as-nails point guard. Lowry, sixth in the NBA in win shares (an estimated number of wins a player produces for his team), has been the Raptors most indispensable player. What would they do without him? Luckily, thats a quandary they need not concern themselves with. Although Lowry was a spectator in practice Monday, less than 15 hours after getting inadvertently trampled by P.J. Tucker, scrambling for a loose ball late in Sundays loss to the Phoenix Suns, he was relieved to deliver promising news. "It was a really powerful blow, but Im okay," said Lowry, who was cleared by team doctors earlier that morning, showing no signs or symptoms of a concussion or serious head injury. "Luckily, we have great doctors and a great staff and they checked everything out and everything came back clear, so Im fine." Sitting out of practice with flu-like symptoms that had been bothering him before Sundays game, Lowry said he was still feeling ill, but the headaches he complained about the night prior had dissipated. The Raptors did their due diligence in clearing Lowry and carefully made that apparent to those that had questioned their process after the point guard remained in Sundays game. "Its a huge issue and it should be," Casey said, speaking on the severity of head injuries in professional sport. "Teams are very sensitive to that, when theyre questioned whether they are going by protocol because its a huge deal." Scott McCullough, head athletic trainer, first tested Lowry for signs of a concussion while he was lying on the floor and then again after he was helped up and over to the bench during the timeout. Had he showed symptoms - such as disorientation, lack of coordination or nausea - the Raptors would have been compelled to puull him from the game and take him to the "quiet room", per league concussion policy. OG Anunoby Jersey. . "Our guys went through the protocol, they checked his eyes," Casey continued. "He was deemed okay to go back into the game." Down nine with 96 seconds to go, Lowry - a fierce, and in some cases hardheaded competitor - was determined to power through. "I put myself back into that game," he said. "They werent going to take me out of that game. [McCullough] did his protocol on the bench and he checked me out and I was good to go, so thats all that matters." Lowry was tested twice more by team doctor Howard Petroff following the game and then again Monday morning, given a clean bill of health. Averaging career-highs of 17.2 points and 7.9 assists per game, Lowry has not missed a game this season and intends on playing Tuesday in Atlanta. What would it take for Lowry to sit out? "Being dead," he joked. "Not being able to walk." "I mean, Im always going to try to go out there and fight for my teammates and try to win the game, no matter what the situation is. At that point I felt like we still had a chance to win. Me, Im never going to sit out because of a little bump to the head." Clinging to a half game lead over Chicago for the Easts third seed and a three-and-a-half game cushion on Brooklyn for top spot in the division with 17 contests to go, the Raptors need all hands on deck. Despite the improved play of backup point guard Greivis Vasquez, Lowrys all-around contributions would be the toughest the replace. "Im happy as heck that hes okay," Casey said. "Its huge because were already down an important piece in our second unit with Patrick (Patterson) and to lose Kyle would be tough." Patterson was absent from practice Monday afternoon, having his sprained right elbow re-evaluated at the time. He is expected to accompany the team on their upcoming two-game road trip, a back-to-back in Atlanta and New Orleans, though his status is uncertain.
