CLEVELAND -- Interim general manager David Griffin said before the Cavaliers game Sunday night that hed like to see a few more smiles from his team. Following Clevelands 91-83 overtime win over Memphis, there were happy faces all around the locker room. "The game is fun," said Kyrie Irving, who scored 28 points as Cavaliers won back-to-back games for the first time in a month. "Being out there, just competing at the highest level. At the end of the day, its just a game." The Cavaliers, who broke a six-game losing streak Friday night against Washington, have won both games since general manager Chris Grant was fired last week. Irving scored the final four points in regulation to tie it. Luol Dengs 3-pointer on the first possession of overtime put Cleveland ahead for good, 81-78. While a two-game winning streak wont remedy all the teams problems in an adversity-filled season, the Cavaliers want to seize on any positive momentum they can find. "Everybody was putting too much pressure on themselves," Irving said. "We needed to go out there and play basketball. Going out there the last two games, whether the game gets tight or gets away from you, it should be fun." Nick Calathes scored 17 points to lead Memphis, which has lost three of four since winning six straight. Deng began the overtime scoring with a 3-pointer from the corner as the shot clock was winding down. Baskets by Dion Waiters and Anderson Varejao, sandwiched around a 3-pointer by Calathes, left Cleveland with an 85-81 lead. A resounding dunk by Waiters and four free throws by Irving put the game away. "They had the two best players on the floor in Dion Waiters and Kyrie Irving," Grizzlies coach David Joerger said. "They really took the game over from start to finish." Joerger blamed the Grizzlies poor first half, in which they fell behind by 14 points, for the loss. "We slogged in the mud at the start tonight, which you cant do on the road," he said. James Johnson scored 13 points in the fourth quarter to help Memphis erase a nine-point deficit. Cleveland led 74-65 but was held scoreless for 4:54 as the Grizzlies took a 78-74 lead. Irving tied it with a layup with 18 seconds remaining and was fouled, but missed the free throw, giving Memphis the ball with 16.7 seconds left. Zach Randolph lost the ball while driving the lane and Waiters heave from just inside halfcourt hit off the backboard. Griffin met with the players at Sunday morning at the shootaround while owner Dan Gilbert spoke with them prior to the game. "I think it woke up a lot of people," Waiters said of Grants dismissal. "Me, I felt half of that was my fault, how we played. We just didnt come out right as a unit. I think it cost the man his job. If we had been playing the way we have the last two games hed probably still be here. We cant dwell on the past, weve got to continue to play the way weve been playing and keep it up." Waiters scored 18 points, and C.J. Miles added 14 for Cleveland. Johnson scored 15 points for Memphis. Randolph, who left the game in the second quarter to get three stitches to close a cut under his left eye, had 14 points. Calathes, playing in place of the injured Mike Conley, made his first six shots and was 7 of 9 from the field. Randolph went to the locker room late in the second quarter after taking an elbow in the face from Tristan Thompson while they were going for a rebound. Randolph was on the court for a couple of moments and asked for a towel to put to his face. He tapped hands with Thompson before jogging off the court with a team trainer. Randolph returned to start the third quarter. "Teams know we try to go inside to Zach and let him go to work, but weve got to do something with all five guys, not always depend on our horse down there," Said Memphis forward Tayshaun Prince. "We cant allow Zach to always be our hero. It puts us in a tough spot and it puts him in a tough spot." Deng started after missing Fridays game with the flu.

And all things considered, the first 40 games have offered a little bit of everything from a hockey club that faced many questions in its first year under new management, with a new head coach and with a number of new faces in the lineup. However, with a recent dip in scoring, it seems some of the same old questions persist and several new ones have been raised after a somewhat troubling homestand.

EDMONTON -- Mike Reilly has been one of the few positives in what is one of the worst seasons in Edmonton Eskimos history, yet the 27-year-old says the teams final three games are crucial for future of the franchise, the team and for himself. With games remaining against three western rivals, beginning Friday evening at home against the Calgary Stampeders, the Eskimos designated quarterback of the future says its critical the team does not "roll over and die." "Its important we compete and get some wins," he said. "Its tough to not fall into that mentality of things are lost and to hang your head. Its like when a game is over and youve lost, you have to flush it and not dwell on it. Yeah we havent had much success. But if we dwell on that were never going to get better." Reilly, who has started every game this season, says the 3-12 Eskimos have to treat the remaining games as playoffs "and try to get as hyped up for them as we can." "Treat them as the most important games of the season because honestly, for the future of this franchise, for the future of this team, we need to approach it like that. We need to have success these next three games to give everybody something to get excited about for next year." The native of Kennewick, Wash., vows hell personally be fighting every down until the end of the season because his job, like everyone elses on the team, is on the line. Reilly earned the starting job out of training camp -- aided by the season-ending knee injury to his main rival for the job, Matt Nichols -- and has proven himself a tough, capable competitor. But unless the EEskimos win at least one of the last three games they will finish with the fewest wins since 1963 when they were 2-14.dddddddddddd As quarterback, Reilly has to share the blame. "I think were playing to save everybodys job," he says. "Im working to save my job, Im playing to save my teammates jobs, and Im playing to save the jobs of everybody in here because everybody here, coaching staff, players, are all important to me because theyre all put in a ton of work." Its a given there will be roster changes made and Reilly says the next three games are an "opportunity for everybody to show why they deserve to be around next year, and Im no different." "Im not that far removed from a backup," he added. "I remember what its like to stand on the sidelines and watch the game. So even through theres no playoffs this is three opportunities to get on the field and get better, try to make this team better, try to make this club better and get some momentum, get some hope going into next season. "For so long Ive been a backup and Ive spent so much time and hard work trying to get on the field that it would be a shame to give up and say Well, theres only three games left." Those games are against Calgary, B.C. and Saskatchewan, three western teams the Eskimos have to find a way to beat if they want to become competitive and get back to the playoffs. Defensive tackle Almondo Sewell, who was taken off the field on a stretcher last weekend but suffered no serious injury, will not play Friday. Nor will centre Alex Krausnick (knee). Brian Ramsay is expected to start at centre. ' ' '
