Switzerland put up a better fight than Denmark – much better — but the result was the same: A Canadian victory, this one by the razor-thin margin of 3-2.

So far only one Canadian has qualified to be in the Masters field. That’d be Mike Weir, the 2003 winner of the green jacket. But that’s hardly a bellwether for the health of Canadian golf.

December 22, 2018 2:58 AM Game Centre: Kawhi Leonard, Raptors make it look easy against Cavaliers

But facing the Cavaliers, now 8-25, Toronto looked unencumbered in a 126-110 win, even without Kyle Lowry (thigh), Serge Ibaka (knee), Jonas Valanciunas (thumb) and Danny Green (knee). It wasn’t anywhere near the Raptors’ best defensive showing — they let Cleveland shoot 48.1 per cent from the field and gave up 41 points in the third quarter — but the team rarely 123

December 19, 2018 2:54 AM Game Centre: Tavares show, Marleau milestone spark Leafs past Devils

Maple Leafs coach Mike Babcock said he’d like to see his team “machine-like” rather than “fun to watch.” The Leafs were just that in a 7-2 win over the New Jersey Devils at the Prudential Center in Newark on Tuesday night, snapped a two-game winless skid in the process. John Tavares and Auston Matthews scored 1:57 apart in the first period, while Patrick 152

December 18, 2018 2:06 PM Yankees pay CC Sabathia the $500,000 bonus he missed when he was ejected for throwing at batter

At the time, Sabathia was praised for sticking up for his teammates when he plunked Tampa Bay Rays catcher Jesus Sucre in the bottom of the sixth inning. He was thrown out of the game and finished the season with 153 innings, two short of the number he needed to achieve his bonus.
