In the end, it didnt matter that Team Canada could only muster up a half point. Sidney Crosby Jersey . What really mattered was that this event came off, that world-class golf came to Halifax and it was embraced by the fans. Mondays RBC Canada Cup was a success in every measurement except perhaps the scoreboard. Under sunny skies and with steamy temperatures, Mike Weir, Graham DeLaet, David Hearn and Adam Hadwin took on Matt Kuchar, Gary Woodland, Trevor Immelman and Manny Villegas at the Ashburn Golf Club. After four nine-hole, singles matches and two alternate-shot matches of the same length, Team World locked up a 5½ to a ½ victory. But never mind that, this wasnt about the score. This was about a fun outing in a part of Canada that doesnt see this kind of golf as often as does say Toronto or Montreal. Its also one of the few times that Canadas best got to team up. Weir, Hearn and DeLaet will see each other out on the PGA Tour but the chance to play together as a team was big for all three. Its the first time in your humble scribes memory that the top Canadian players teamed up on Canadian soil. And while this was an exhibition – DeLaet and Kuchar hit mulligans off the first tee in their singles match – there was still some pride on the line. "I still really want to win this," said Weir, with a big smile before teeing off. If nothing else, these guys are competitive to the end. So this was more than a skins game but less than a tournament. It was competitive but friendly, as it should be. And for sponsor RBC, it was a hit. The players teed off in a morning nine-hole pro-am which one bank official called "about the best thing weve done in a long time." The event is part of a week-long celebration of Canadian golf called GOLFest Nova Scotia and includes a Web.com Tour event where Villegas and Hadwin, along with a gaggle of talented Canadians will get down to more serious business. Kuchar took the celebration to heart, taking his family on a Nova Scotia vacation prior to the RBC Canada Cup shootout. He went to Cape Breton and played Cabot Links and visited Fox Harbr for another round. He got a good chuckle from guests at an evening dinner when he announced that his next stop was going to be P.E.I. Kuchar also delighted the crowds at the closing ceremonies when he praised the golf course and the fans, calling it a great, fun exhibition. And thats pretty much what it was – a great, fun exhibition with some marvelous golf. Just about perfect for Canada Day. Olli Maatta Jersey . -- If the Bears make changes this off-season, it will not be at quarterback. http://www.nhlpenguinshockeystore.com/black-92-tomas-vokoun-womens-jersey/ . Edwin Encarnacion hit two of Torontos season-high five home runs as the Blue Jays capped a two-game mini-sweep of Philadelphia by outscoring the Phillies 12-6 on Thursday at Rogers Centre. PORTLAND, Ore. -- Jamal Crawford knew what had been holding him back: too much thinking and not enough shooting. His coach and teammates agreed. Crawford scored a season-high 26 points and the Portland Trail Blazers returned home from a six-game road trip with a 101-89 win over the Sacramento Kings on Monday night. "All these guys said, just play," said Crawford, who joined the Blazers last month as a free agent. "(They said) youve got to be the person you were before you came here. You cant try to fit it in." Gerald Wallace had 20 points and eight rebounds and LaMarcus Aldridge added 13 points and 16 rebounds for the Blazers, who were coming off a 2-4 trip. Portland improved to 7-1 at the Rose Garden, playing there for the first time since Jan. 11.

A 13-year veteran, the six-foot-five Crawford has been tentative and inconsistent at times since joining Portland. He is shooting 34 per cent for the season, well below his career average. While Crawford is most comfortable at shooting guard, the Blazers have played him much of the time at point guard where he has had problems with turnovers. But there had been signs he was finding his range. He had 24 points Jan. 11 against Orlando and 22 against Atlanta on Wednesday. "Coming into the game I just felt good," he said. "It was a fresh start. I just cleared my head and said this is day one all over again." DeMarcus Cousins had 18 points and 13 rebounds, his 12th double-double of the season, for the Kings. Jimmer Fredette scored 13 points and Francisco Garciia added 12. Penguins Jersey. Sacramento dropped to 2-9 on the road.

He was fired after seven games and replaced with assistant Keith Smart, who is 4-7 since taking over. Sacramento was missing second-leading scorer Marcus Thornton with a thigh bruise. The Kings had won two in a row but fell 128-95 to the Memphis Grizzlies on Saturday, despite Fredettes career-high 20 points.

Returning from missing a game with a hand injury, Wallace had 15 points and eight rebounds in the first half for the Blazers. Portland went on a 20-7 run at the end of the second quarter, briefly opening a 20-point lead and took a 53-38 advantage into the break. "The second quarter got away from us toward the end," Smart said. "It only takes a couple moments in a game, or a quarter, for it to separate." Portland went up 76-56 and the Kings didnt get any closer than 13 down until Isaiah Thomas and Fredette made three-pointers in the last minute. Notes: Portland was beginning its first back-to-back-to-back stretch of the season. The Blazers play Memphis Tuesday and Golden State Wednesday. ... Kings G John Salmons played after being hospitalized over the weekend in Memphis with food poisoning. He played 18 minutes and didnt score. ... Blazers C Marcus Camby played just 12 minutes.
