OKLAHOMA CITY -- Thunder coach Scott Brooks joked during pregame that he didnt like what he saw from Kyrie Irving at the All-Star game. Derek Rivers Jersey . Brooks coached the West and watched as Irving led the East to a comeback win on his way to earning MVP honours. Brooks didnt like what he saw from Irving on Wednesday night, and it was no joke this time. The point guard made it look like All-Star weekend again, scoring 14 of his 31 points in the fourth quarter to help the Cleveland Cavaliers beat Oklahoma City 114-104. Irving also had nine assists, five rebounds and four steals. "Kyrie had a huge performance for us," Cavaliers coach Mike Brown said. "He was very efficient in the 43 minutes that he played tonight, I thought offensively, especially." The young Cavaliers, still adjusting to roster changes since the trade deadline, picked up a meaningful victory. Cleveland shot 14 for 21 from the field in the fourth quarter against the Western Conference-leading Thunder. "To come here and get a win in this building versus this team and those players and that coaching staff, for us, is a good confidence booster," Brown said. "Everything for us right now to be a positive will help us long term just as much as it will short term." It was Oklahoma Citys third straight home loss since the All-Star break. The Thunder lost three games at home the entire season before the break. "No one in the locker room, including myself, feels good about it," Brooks said. "The exciting thing is we know we can do better. We just have to maximize our potential." Jarrett Jack scored 21 points, Spencer Hawes scored 19 and Tristan Thompson added 11 points and 11 rebounds for the Cavaliers, who snapped a three-game losing streak. Kevin Durant had 28 points, 10 rebounds and nine assists, Russell Westbrook had 24 points and nine assists and Serge Ibaka added 16 points and 13 rebounds for the Thunder. Oklahoma City is 0-3 since Westbrook returned from his latest knee surgery. Brooks said the bigger issue for the Thunder is their suddenly porous defence. Oklahoma City, one of the leagues top defensive teams all season, allowed 103 points on 55 per cent shooting against Miami and 125 points on 52 per cent shooting against the Los Angeles Clippers before its latest collapse. "Its a defensive toughness," Brooks said. "We have to get tough on the basketball because were giving up too much penetration. We have to fight through screens. These are things that weve done a great job at, we just have to get back to it." In the closing seconds of the first half, Westbrook dribbled as the clock wound down, then pulled up in front of Irving and drained a 3-pointer to give the Thunder a 52-51 lead at the break. The Thunder committed 12 turnovers in the first half, but made up for it by shooting 57 per cent from the field. Durant scored 15 points before the break and Westbrook had 13 points and six assists. Irving had 14 points, four assists and three steals at halftime. The Thunder opened the second half with 3s from Durant and Thabo Sefolosha to take a 58-51 lead. A mid-range jumper by Ibaka stretched Oklahoma Citys lead to 62-53, leading Brown to call a timeout. Cleveland regrouped and cut Oklahoma Citys lead to three on an unusual play. The Cavaliers Luol Deng shot a jumper and Nick Collison was called for goaltending and issued a technical foul for grabbing the net. Irving made the free throw to make it a 69-66 game. The Thunder led 76-72 at the end of the period. "Oklahoma City, they came out and kind of punched us in the mouth a little bit in that third quarter, and our guys didnt panic," Brown said. "They kind of stayed with it." Matthew Dellavedova tied the game at 81 with a floater early in the fourth quarter. Later, a breakaway dunk by Alonzo Gee gave the Cavaliers a 90-86 edge with 7:10 to play. Durants 3-pointer gave the Thunder a 97-95 lead, but the Cavaliers responded with an 8-0 run, highlighted by 3-pointers from Jack and Irving, and they controlled the game from there. "Obviously, playing against a great team, youre going to get up for it," Irving said. "Everyone in the league wants to play against a great team like this, especially on their home floor. But this game doesnt mean any more than any other game that we have coming up. Every game just means a lot at this point, no matter who were playing." NOTES: It was the second consecutive start for Thunder C Steven Adams. He replaced Kendrick Perkins, who is out for six weeks with a groin injury. ... Hawes started for the second time since being traded from Philadelphia. ... Durant was honoured during pregame for being selected as the Western Conference player of the month for January. ... Thunder G Derek Fisher was issued a technical foul early in the second quarter, his third of the season. Dwayne Allen Jersey . Rasmussen didnt have a decision during his four appearances in May, when he gave up two hits and no runs in two innings. Toronto used five relievers while pulling off the second-biggest comeback in franchise history on Friday night, rallying from an 8-0 deficit to a 14-9 win. Stephon Gilmore Jersey . -- The Anaheim Ducks have signed left wing Dany Heatley to a one-year deal, returning the 33-year-old unrestricted free agent to the Pacific Division. http://www.shoptheofficialpatriots.com/Elite-Cameron-Fleming-Patriots-Jersey/ .ca. Mr. Fraser, I think everyone would like to hear your opinion on what sort of suspension Zac Rinaldo should get. His comment after the game of I changed the whole game, man.MONTREAL - There has not been much to cheer at Montreal Alouettes games this season, but that will change this week when Ben Cahoon returns as one of seven new inductees in the Canadian Football Hall of Fame.The gritty little receiver who combined with quarterback Anthony Calvillo to set Canadian Football League records will be honoured with six other inductees Sunday when the Calgary Stampeders visit the Alouettes in the Hall of Fame game at Percival Molson Stadium.Every time I get near that field I get chills, Cahoon said as the group received their Hall of Fame jackets.He was to be inducted at a gala Saturday night along with former Alouettes offensive tackle Uzooma Okeke and linebacker/punter Wally Buono, now general manager and vice president of the B.C. Lions.Former Winnipeg Blue Bombers running back Charles Roberts, Edmonton Eskimos fullback Neil Lumsden, old-time Ottawa Rough Riders tackle and kicker Moe (The Toe) Racine and university coach Larry Haylor were also to be inducted.The diminutive Cahoon was one of the most popular players ever in Montreal red, white and blue, making a then-record 1,017 catches for 13,296 yards in his 13 seasons, many of them in heavy traffic over the middle.The 42-year-old played in eight Grey Cup games, winning three, and holds the record of 47 career Grey Cup catches.The main reason was being surrounded by a fantastic offensive line my whole career and Anthony Calvillo, said Cahoon. We were lucky for a decade-plus to have that: a lot of stability on the line, great talent and work ethic, and the best in the business with Anthony.Cahoon was born in Utah to Canadian parents and spent part of his childhood living in various Alberta towns, which was enough to give him non-import status.That likely was why a smaller-than-average, not terribly fast receiver got a chance to play in the CFL. But once he got in the game, he proved himself quickly.I felt a few times that saved my job, but at the same time, I felt I proved I could have played as an American, too, he said. Some people didnt consider me a legit Canadian. I would debate that till the sun goes down.Cahoon, who now sells medical equipment in Salt Lake City, nearly came back to Montreal as an assistant coach this year, but a few factors didnt play out to make it happen, including GM Jim Popp not getting the head coaching job.He had coached receivers at his alma mater, Brigham Young, after retiring as a player before being let go in 2012 when they changed offensive co-ordinators.Okeke, a six-time CFL all-star, played for Montreal from 1997 to 2006 after earlier stops in Shreveport and Ottawa. He is now football operations assistant and a scout for the Alouettes.I remember winning the Grey Cup (in 2002), the parade, the 44-year-old said. I remember Mike Pringle rushing for 2,000 yards.I remember running around town when I was a rookie. My first daughter was born in Montreal. There are a lot of good memories.Buono, who went into the Hall as a builder, grew up in Montreal, played from 1973 to 1983 for the Alouettes and beegan his coaching career with them, but he made his mark on the CFL as a head coach in Calgary and B. James White Jersey. C.Mostly, he is known for developing a spectacular string of quarterbacks including Doug Flutie, Jeff Garcia, Dave Dickenson, Danny Barrett, Henry Burris, Travis Lulay and Casey Printers.Buono coached 13 years in Calgary, posted a 153-79-2 record, and won three Cups. He coached the Lions from 2003 to 2011 and added two more Cups. He passed Don Matthews for the most coaching wins in CFL history with 254.Im going to say this: I always believed that Don Matthews was the best coach in this league, said Buono. I dont measure it by wins.Don did it a certain way. He set the standard for great coaching. The fact that I coached a year longer than him gave me a few more wins, I guess.Roberts was a quick little back who owned the Blue Bombers record book for rushing, including most career yards with 9,987 and most rushing touchdowns with 64. In his career, he carried 1,918 times for 10,285 yards and 69 TDs.When you start playing football, you never envision being inducted into a hall of fame, he said. Its a league with great history and to be part of that is very special to me. Im humbled by it.Roberts returned home to Anaheim, Calif., after his career, and now has a day job and does some coaching on the side.Its funny because I was known as a coach killer, he said with a laugh. Maybe not a coach killer, but a guy that might have caused some little difficulties in the offices. But working with kids. Trying to give back. You miss the sport.Lumsden got the nod for his university career. He helped the Ottawa Gee Gees to an 11-0 season and Vanier Cup in 1975. And for his CFL accomplishments. He won four Grey Cups, three with Edmonton and another as GM of the Hamilton Tiger-Cats. Then he became a university coach, currently at Guelph.What he was best known for was being a rare Canadian to play in the backfield.When I came out of Ottawa, I dont think there were any Canadian running backs, he said. Typically, Canadian kids moved to tight end or slotback.In Toronto, Russ Jackson was my first head coach, and he put me at fullback and I got the opportunity and played well. So maybe that tipped the balance so that Canadians could play that position. There were lots of great ones after me. I maybe kicked the door open a bit.Racine waited decades for the Hall of Fame call. The three-time Eastern all-star played 274 games for Ottawa from 1960 to 1974 and had his No. 62 retired by the Rough Riders.He never kicked in high school, but was asked to do kickoffs and then took over converts and field goals in the early 1960s.Its very exciting, he said. I put it out of my mind many years ago and now its arrived, so its exciting for me and my family.Haylor coached the University of Saskatchewan Huskies from 1971 to 1973, but is best known for guiding the Western Mustangs from 1984 to 2006, winning Vanier Cups in 1989 and 1994. He set a record for CIS coaching victories with 154, and retired with a 178-43-4 record.
