TORONTO -- The Toronto Raptors were set to depart for a gruelling four-game road swing after Wednesday nights loss to the Charlotte Bobcats. The trip couldnt come at a better time, as its homecourt that proving a disadvantage to Toronto this season. Kemba Walker hit a buzzer-beating jump shot in overtime to lift the Charlotte Bobcats to a 104-102 overtime victory Wednesday, handing the Raptors their eighth loss at home this season. "Its one of those things that whatever it is, were not generating enough focus. . .," said Raptors coach Dwane Casey, at a loss to explain the discrepancy between playing at home and on the road. "We have far more focus on the road than we do at home, and that is a concern. I talked to the team about it today. We have great fans, great crowd, warm building, hot building, so theres no reason why we cant come out with that type of fire and intensity and dont wait until you get hit in the mouth, punched in the mouth until we turn it on." The Raptors are 5-6 on the road this season, and just 4-8 at the Air Canada Centre. Walker scored 29 points, including his 18-footer that sealed the victory for Charlotte (12-14). Al Jefferson added 24 points. "It hurts, everyone who loses a game by a buzzer beater, youd rather get blown out by 50 than lose on a buzzer beater," said Raptors guard Kyle Lowry, who had 17 points and six assists. DeMar DeRozan scored a game-high 30 points for Toronto (9-14), while Amir Johnson had a game-high 13 rebounds to go with 10 points. Newcomer John Salmons finished with 11 points, while Jonas Valanciunas added 10. The Raptors led by as much as 16 points midway through the third, but the Bobcats closed the quarter with a 25-9 run to send the game into the fourth locked at 70-70 in front of an Air Canada Centre crowd of 15,201. It was a see-saw battle through the fourth quarter, and the Raptors trailed by three points twice in the last 21 seconds -- the difference negated the second time by Lowrys three-pointer with 12 seconds to go to tie the game 95-95. DeRozan then stripped Walker on the Bobcats last possession to guarantee overtime. Valanciunas, Johnson and DeRozan had the Raptors only three field goals in a sloppy five minutes of overtime that saw the Raptors miss on their first six shots. But DeRozan made one-of-two free throws with a second left to tie it up 102-102. Walker, guarded by Valanciunas -- who was slow to get to him -- was open when he made the winning buzzer-beater. "Tough, tough one second," Valanciunas said. "He made a tough shot. Could make a better job on defence, but it happened. Could be earlier, maybe he wouldnt make that, but what happened happened." Now the Raptors depart for a tough four-game road trip that takes them through Dallas, Oklahoma City, San Antonio, and New York. The Raptors play eight of their next 10 games on the road -- a good thing, perhaps. "I dont know, I have no idea," Lowry said, on the poor home record. "I really cant explain it, I cant put my foot on it, weve really got to find a way to change it around." Lowry doesnt agree with Casey assessment that its a lack of focus. "Naw. . .weve just got to find a way to win at home, make the homecourt more of an advantage for us." The Raptors shot 43 per cent from the floor to Charlottes 46 per cent. The Raptors outrebounded the Bobcats 50-40. It was another strong game for Johnson, who injected some desperately-needed energy into one of the ugliest quarters of basketball by either team in a while. The Raptors two assists were the only assists in the quarter, and both teams shot just under a lowly 32 per cent. The Bobcats led 18-15 heading into the second. The Raptors pulled away in what was an only slightly more exciting second quarter, outscoring their visitors 32-19. DeRozan had 11 points in the frame, and Lowrys driving layup with 23 seconds left put the Raptors up by 12. They took a 47-37 lead into the halftime break. Walker scored 11 points in the third quarter as the Bobcats chipped away at Torontos lead, tying it up on a Jefferson layup with two minutes to play.

Jose Mourinhos ultra-defensive tactics succeeded at the Vicente Calderon Stadium despite the exit of goalkeeper Petr Cech to injury in the 18th minute. Mark Schwarzer came on, with Cechs long-term replacement -- Thibaut Courtois -- playing in the opposite goal, on loan from Chelsea. Atletico nearly broke through in the final 15 minutes as Raul Garcia and substitute Arda Turan sent headers wide, while Gabi Fernandez and Diego Costa forced Schwarzer into saves. But Chelsea looked too strong at the back, despite also losing captain John Terry to an injury that will sideline him for the remainder of the Premier League season. The result will leave the English side feeling upbeat about its chances of returning to the final, two years after beating Bayern Munich on penalties. Atletico, which is top of the Spanish league and hasnt been this far in Europes top competition since 1974, needs a plan for breaking open a Chelsea defence that will be handicapped by injuries and suspensions in the return leg. "Were not happy with the draw since we wanted to win at all costs. Were left with a bad taste in our mouth even if the series is still open," Gabi said. "We knew they didnt want to concede, but we tried to score through our best attacking football." The second leg is at Stamford Bridge on April 30 with the winner playing either Bayern or Real Madrid in the May 24 final at Lisbon. Chelsea striker Fernando Torres started on his first return to his boyhood club -- but made little impact like much of his sides attack -- as Oscar and Andre Schuerrle were left on the substitutes bench. Eden Hazard and Samuel Etoo were out due to injury. "We had to be safe, dont concede and score in the chances you create," Mourinho said. "If you score a goal in one of those situations the result would be very good. We didnt, but this result means everything will be decided at Stamford Bridge." Mourinhos game plan waas not pretty, but certainly proved effective as the Blues stifled Atletico, whose best opportunity of the first half forced Cech out with an injured shoulder as he tipped Kokes wicked in-swinging corner kick over the bar.dddddddddddd Schwarzer came on to chants of "Courtois" as Atletico supporters mocked Chelseas decision to loan out the Belgian goalkeeper. Chelsea should have been ahead moments later when Gary Cahill headed Frank Lampards corner kick wide from inside the area, shortly before Ramires broke through -- only for the Chelsea midfielder to fire wide. Schwarzer was busy gathering failed crosses and long balls as the home side attempted to break through without success, while Chelseas defenders did well to contain Diego Costa and block a series of shots, including the Spain strikers 41st-minute volley from inside the area. After Lampard forced Courtois into a save to start the second half, Atletico slowly began to break through the Chelsea wall through efforts from Diego Ribas, who came off for Turan after an hour. Terry picked up an injury after appearing to land awkwardly and made way for Schuerrle in the 73rd, while Atletico players grew frustrated with referee Jonas Eriksson. The Swede gave neither team leeway in a stop-start match featuring many fouls and also handed out a booking to Gabi that will rule the Atletico captain out of the return match. Yellow cards for Lampard and John Obi Mikel means the Chelsea midfield pair will also miss the game at Stamford Bridge. "We will fight, we will fight," said Mourinho, who said he now saw the Blues priority as being Europe rather than the Premier League. "(Branislav) Ivanovic is back, Schwarzer showed we could trust him. If we have to play the kids, we have to play the kids." Raul Garcia, who limped off at the end, headed a pair of chances over the top in the final 10 minutes, when Atletico pressed forward for a winner. Diego Costa was unable to direct his header past Schwarzer, who will now be vital for Chelseas Premier League campaign, as the London club held on for a valuable draw. ' ' '
