Rockets' 129-122 victory over Raptors spoils great nights by DeRozan, Carroll
TORONTO — James Harden scored 40 points to lift Houston to a 129-122 victory over the Toronto Raptors on Sunday, for the Rockets' eighth consecutive win.
TRURO, N.S. – G Blackmore hit the scoresheet in his Quebec Major Junior Hockey League debut on Friday.
Blackmore, from Millbrook, picked up an assist for the Moncton Wildcats in a 6-2 loss to the Halfax Mooseheads at Scotiabank Centre.
The 17-year-old forward, who plays midget AAA for the Weeks Major Midgets, was signed by the Wildcats as a free agent last week.
Blackmore earned his assist in the second period by being hard on the forecheck and creating a turnover behind the Mooseheads net. Teammate Julien Tessier swooped in, picked up the puck and centred to Alex Renaud, who beat Blade Mann-Dixon to make it a 3-2 game at the time.
Blackmore, a Grade 12 student at CEC, leads the Nova Scotia Major Midget AAA Hockey League in scoring with 19 goals and 30 assists in 28 games.
