SACRAMENTO - Regardless of how the rest of the campaign shakes out, when its all said and done December 8 will be a date that jumps out as a turning point, not only for the Raptors but for Rudy Gay himself. Jamal Crawford Jersey . Its been two seasons in one for both parties and neither will look back on the first 18 games fondly. "I think I took the fall for a lot of things," said Gay, reflecting on his short time in Toronto ahead of Wednesdays game against his former club. "But its happened before and itll happen again." Rightly or wrongly, Gay has and will continue to shoulder most of the blame for Torontos 6-12 start, the same way his exodus will be credited for the teams remarkable turnaround. Theres no avoiding it. In Toronto, Gay was the offence, more or less. He was taking more shots than ever before, shooting the lowest percentages of his career and as a result the team was losing. The numbers are pretty conclusive, the Raptors are a better team without him on the roster. However, Gay has also taken off since the trade to Sacramento, which goes to show you that finding the right fit - although its easier said than done - can make a big difference. "I think here theres just more space [in the offence]," said Gay, who is averaging more points and taking fewer shots with the Kings. "Obviously with the kind of season Kyle (Lowry) is having and with DeMar (DeRozan) sometimes it would be a little cluttered out there, especially at the guard position. Here theres just more space for me to do what I do." Gay has shot 50 per cent or better in 17 of his 25 games with the Kings after doing so in one of 18 contests to begin the season in Toronto. Overall, hes hitting 53 per cent of his field goal attempts since the trade, having shot 39 per cent before it. "It just wasnt working up there for whatever reason," said Kings first-year head coach Mike Malone. "But when we made the acquisition we looked at Rudy as a complete player and his whole history, including his years in Memphis and you see how efficient and effective hes been for us." He credits most of that improvement to a system thats more conducive to his style of play, a system that revolves around dominant centre DeMarcus Cousins. Cousins is one of just three NBA players averaging over 20 points and 10 rebounds this season. The attention he attracts in the paint has created space for Gay to operate on the perimeter. "You look at Torontos roster and no disrespect to Jonas (Valanciunas) or Amir (Johnson) but they dont have a true low-post presence," Malone said. "When Rudy was in Memphis he had two [frontcourt] guys that he could play with in Marc (Gasol) and Zach (Randolph) and we just thought the idea of putting him on the perimeter with the inside presence of [Cousins] could really allow him to showcase his abilities." "So it is a fit and guys have to compliment each other and thats what putting together a roster is all about," he continued. "Up there, for whatever reason, DeMar and Rudy on the court maybe wasnt a mesh, maybe [there] wasnt enough shots to go around. Im not sure what it was but all I can tell you is that the games that weve had Rudy hes been a great fit." The marriage between Gay and the Raptors, which lasted less than a full year, was flawed from the outset. He and DeRozan had repetitive skill sets that clashed on the court, restricting Lowry from playing to his strengths and stunting the growth of Valanciunas. Dwane Casey tried his best to fit square pegs into round holes until the inevitable split up freed his team and their most expensive player. The pieces just didnt fit. Though his pre-trade numbers may suggest otherwise, Gay never threw in the towel or lost hope that they would figure it out. "I think we had a chance to be a really good team," he said, two months removed from the deal. "I mean obviously theyre a really good team now but I still dont feel we had a lot of time to build and become a big threat in the East." Without Gay the Raptors have a record of 20-10, third best in the Eastern Conference behind only Indiana and Miami. They have recorded 20 or more assists in 24 of those 30 games, averaging 22.9 per contest, ninth-best over that stretch after ranking last in that category before the trade (averaging 17.3). They have gone from the 19th ranked three-point shooting team (34 per cent) to the fifth best (38 per cent) and find themselves in the top 10 in both offensive (10th) and defensive (fifth) efficiency since Dec. 8. "I think the trade helped both of us," Gay said. "Im here, I have more room and they have a solid bench. [Theres] no hard feelings. I love the fact that those guys are winning." Meanwhile, Gays reprisal hasnt translated to team success in Sacramento, at least not yet. The Kings are 11-19 since the trade, tied for the worst record in the West overall. Theyre last in the NBA in assists since Gays arrival but its been their defence, among the worst in the league, that has held them back more than anything else. Yet with Gay on board, paired with a young core of Cousins and breakout point guard Isaiah Thomas, the Kings are optimistic about the future. They have reason to be. "We couldnt be happier with Rudy and hes shown that hes much more than just a scorer," Malone said. "Hes proven to everybody that he can be a very efficient player so thats been a bonus."

Jrue Holiday had 13 points and Eric Gordon added 12 for New Orleans.Mike Scott and Jeff Teague each had 11 points for Atlanta. Robert Covington Jersey . Dalton completed his only pass and led the Bengals to a touchdown in his only drive -- one that took four minutes to finish -- and the Cincinnati Bengals ended the preseason with a 27-10 victory over the Indianapolis Colts on Thursday night. https://www.cheaptimberwolves.com/450j-nikola-pekovic-jersey-timberwolves.html . Grimes signed a $32 million, four-year contract to remain with Miami. The deal, which includes $16 million guaranteed, rewards Grimes for his recovery from an Achilles tendon injury that forced him to miss almost all of the 2012 season.Sting is the headline inductee in the WWEs Hall of Fame Class of 2016 - but Snoop Dogg is also going in! Sting, a six-time WCW Champion as well as a former United States and Tag Team Champion, will be entered during the induction ceremony on April 2.The Icon - not to mention rap Superstar Snoop Dogg, who has enjoyed a long and entertaining association with WWE - are not the only big names going in, though...The Godfather The Godfather The Godfather had many names during his WWE tenure - he was known as The Goodfather, Kama and Papa Shango, too - but he impressed in the ring under each of his monikers, winning the Intercontinental Championship on one occasion as well as nabbing the WWE Tag Team Titles with Right to Censor pal Bull Buchanan. The Godfather was also famed for his vibrant outfits, catchy entrance music and entourage of glamorous females.The Fabulous Freebirds Fabulous Freebirds One of wrestlings most legendary groups will finally be recognised - and their moment will arrive in Dallas, the city they tormented during their heyday. Michael P.S. Hayes, Terry Bam Bam Gordy and Buddy Jack Roberts formed in 1979 and ran roughshod through Texas World Class Championship Wrestling during the 80s. Their legacy is still felt - the Freebirds set the trend for wrestlers to be characterised with their own entrance music.Big Boss Man Big Boss Man The former corrections officer was a charismatic presence in WWE, often handcuffing his opponents to the ropes after defeating them. Boss Man, surprisingly agile for a man in excess of 300 pounds, wrestled legends like Shawn Michaels and Randy Savage and even forced The Mountie to spend a night in a New York jail after beating him at SummerSlam 1991. Boss Man last competed in a WWE ring in 2002 and passed away in 2004.Jacqueline Jacqueline Jacqueline won the WWE Womens Championship on two occasions, beating Sable in 1998 and then Harvey Wippleman - a male competitor who competed in drag as Hervina - in 2000. A trainer and mentor on the first series of WWE Tough Enough in 2004, Jacqueline also shocked the world in the same year by pinning Chavo Guerrero to become Cruiserweight Champion, the third woman to claim the belt.Stan Hansen Stan Hansen Hansen, much like WrestleMania 32 main-eventer Roman Reigns, began his sporting career on the gridiron field, which is perhaps where he learnt his ferocious, hard-hitting offence, offence that broke Bruno Sammartinos neck! Hansen enjoyed success in Japan, beating Antonio Inoki, but also flourished in the States, ending Lex Lugers record-setting, 523-day reign as United States Champion at Halloween Havoc in 1990. Jarrett Culver Jersey. Snoop Dogg Snoop Dogg will enter the WWE Hall of Fame! Rap superstar Snoop Dogg has sold 37 million albums worldwide and made a big impact in WWE, too. Snoop served as Master of Ceremonies for the Divas tag-team match between Maria and Ashley at WrestleMania 24 - enjoying a smooch with Maria after the bout, as well as laying out Santino Marella with a clothesline! Snoop, cousin to WWE Diva Sasha Banks, also hosted an episode of Raw in 2009, during which he speared Chavo Guerrero.WrestleMania 32 booking detailsWrestleMania 32 will be shown on Sky Sports Box Office (channel 491) and Sky Sports HD Box Office (channel 492) at midnight on Sunday, April 3 (Monday morning)WrestleMania 32 will be repeated on Sky Sports Box Office (channel 491) but NOT Sky Sports HD Box Office (channel 492) between 10am, Monday, April 4 and 10pm, Tuesday, April 5.Repeat showings will last for four hours, with the final showing STARTING at 10pm on Tuesday, April 5.The event is priced at £19.95 for UK customers, €24.95 for viewers in the Republic of Ireland.
