Siakam red-hot as Raptors top Wizards

TORONTO—Pascal Siakam got chants of “MVP, MVP.”

Jeremy Lin, just hours after landing in Toronto, got a standing ovation as he made his Raptors' debut.

It made for a feel-good night as Toronto, fuelled by Siakam's career-high 44 points in the absence of Kawhi Leonard (knee), held on to beat the Washington Wizards 129-120 in a back-and-forth game last night.

Leonard leads Raptors over Nets

TORONTO—Kawhi Leonard was challenged by his head coach to show some fire and when it mattered most, he came through.

Leonard had a game-high 30 points, and hit the winning shot with 4.2 seconds left, as the Toronto Raptors edged the Brooklyn Nets 127-125 last night.

Raptors' head coach Nick Nurse said the NBA all-star appeared unmotivated over the last four games.

Murray red hot in goal as Pens cool off Flyers

PHILADELPHIA—Matt Murray guzzled a sports drink through part of his post-game interview. It's not surprising the Pittsburgh Penguins' goalie needed to rehydrate after such an intense outing.

Murray made a career-high 50 saves, and Sidney Crosby had a goal and an assist, to lead the Penguins to a 4-1 victory over the Philadelphia Flyers last night.

Mickelson finishes off win

PEBBLE BEACH, Calif.—With plenty of sunlight and no drama, Phil Mickelson finished off a seven-under 65 this morning to win the AT&T Pebble Beach Pro-Am and match the tournament record with his fifth victory.

Mickelson had a three-shot lead over Paul Casey with two holes to play when it was too dark too finish last night because of delays from rain and a hail storm.
