Coach Sean Payton says the Saints have brought in veteran
running back Mike Gillislee to add physicality to New Orleans' running game.

Payton says he sees Gillislee as a first- and second-down runner who has
earned hard yards for his past teams. Payton says he does not envision Gillislee
getting much work as a receiver Luke

carried the ball 104 times for the Patriots, gaining 383 yards and scoring five
touchdowns. He also caught one pass for 15 yards.

yards and eight TDs to go with 50 yards and one TD receiving.

WASHINGTON — The Wizards‘ All-Star duo turned in star performances Friday
night and now Washington has a chance to even its first-round series with the
top-seeded Toronto Raptors on Sunday at Capital One Arena.

John Wall and Bradley Beal scored 28 points apiece, Wall added 14 assists and
Wizards turned in a cocky, aggressive effort to get back in the series with a
122-103 Game 3 victory.

The Wizards will go for their eighth straight home playoff win Sunday.

“We came out tonight with an edge about ourselves Connor

,” Beal told “We’ve got to
protect our home floor. Toronto did what they were supposed to do. They won on
their home floor. We had to do the same.”

Beal rebounded from a 3-of-11 effort (nine points) in Game 2, scoring 21
first-half points as Washington built an eight-point lead at intermission it
never relinquished.

“For the most part, I just wanted to be aggressive and get shots I want
versus what they’re going to force me to take,” Beal told The Washington

Beal and Wall combined for 22-of-42 shooting and 10 rebounds.

“When they play at that level, they are really good ,”
Raptors guard Kyle Lowry told the Toronto Sun regarding the Wall-Beal tandem.
“They are the heads of the snake, and we’ve got to cut them off.”

The Wizards outshot the Raptors 55.3 percent to 45.1 percent in an intense,
chippy game that featured several altercations.

But the bigger problem for Toronto was holding on to the ball.

“You can’t turn the ball over 19 times for 28 points,” Toronto coach Dwane
Casey told the Globe and Mail. “Your hat has to go off to Washington; they came
out and punched us and we allowed them to. Nineteen turnovers, they shoot 55
percent Womens
Ben Roethlisberger Jersey
, that’s the ballgame.”

The Raptors continue to miss reserve guard Fred VanVleet. For the second game
in a row, the Washington bench outscored the Raptors’ vaunted second unit, this
time 35-32.

Toronto’s C.J. Miles converted 8 of 13 3-point attempts in the first two
games, but a tighter Washington defense held him to 1 of 5 on Friday night.

“I think we have to be more aggressive,” Raptors reserve Pascal Siakam told
the Sun regarding the Wizards’ bench. “They were ready tonight and they took us
out of what we wanted to do. We have to be ready when we come out and make sure
we throw the first punch.”

Washington reserves Mike Scott and Kelly Oubre Jr. scored 12 points

There had been talk of the Wizards shaking up their lineup after Game
2 Jeff

saying before the game that he was “confident in the group.”

Center Marcin Gortat — minus his mohawk — rewarded him with 16 points on
8-of-10 shooting and five rebounds in front of the home crowd.

“Playing on the road the first two games kind of caught us off guard,”
Washington’s Markieff Morris told “We came back home and
settled down. Got the first win. Try to get the one on Sunday and then move on
from there.”

Washington is looking for a partial repeat of history. Last year, it dropped
the first two games of the Eastern Conference semifinals in Boston before
winning Games 3 and 4 in Washington.

The Capitals ultimately won Game 6 at home before dropping Game 7 in
