Williams received 502 points for Sixth Man of the Year, followed by Boston Celtics guard Isaiah Thomas with 324 points and Los Angeles Clippers guard Jamal Crawford with 131 points.

Williams is the first Raptor player to win the award.

iStock/Thinkstock(BOSTON) -- The Orioles allowed five unearned runs as the Boston Red Sox (8-5) beat Baltimore (7-6) 7-1 on Patriots’ Day. The game was called after 6 1/2 innings because of rain.

With the score tied at 1-1 in the bottom of the third inning, Red Sox shortstop Xander Bogaerts scored the go-ahead run on a fielding error from Orioles starter Wei-Yin Chen (0-1). Boston would proceed to tack on three more runs in the inning -- all unearned.

Chen gave up three hits and five walks while striking out three across 4 1-3 innings of work.

Starting pitcher Justin Masterson (2-0) took the mound for Boston and allowed three hits, a walk and one earned run while striking out six in five innings.

Mookie Betts swiped his fourth base of the season in the first inning.

Photos.come/Thinkstock(CHICAGO) -- Reinforcements are coming for the Chicago White Sox. The team plans to call up top pitching prospect Carlos Rodon to the Majors on Monday.

Rodon was the third overall pick in the 2014 draft by the White Sox.

The 22-year-old Rodon had a successful yet brief minor league stint. He appeared in 11 games, making eight starts through the White Sox minor league system.

"There will still be butterflies when the debut comes, whatever day that is," Rodon said at the end of spring training. "But it makes it a little easier I guess because I've faced big-league hitters before. But it counts a little more when that happens."

He wound up going 1-0 with a 3.15 ERA. Rodon also performed well in the spring, going 2-0 with a 3.06 ERA, five walks and 21 strikeouts in 172/3 innings.

Despite the White Sox high hopes for the talented left-hander, the team will begin his Major League career with him pitching out of the bullpen at first to help ease his transition to facing Major League hitters.

Bruce Bennett/Getty Images(NEW YORK) -- Masai Ujiri's mouth has cost him again. The NBA has fined the Toronto Raptors general manager $35,000 for his expletive over the weekend geared towards Washington Wizards forward Paul Pierce. The team was also fined $25,000.

"People want me to say something about Paul Pierce, but we don't give a s--- about it,'" Ujiri told a cheering crowd outside the Air Canada Centre.

Pierce had made disparaging comments about the franchise in an interview with ESPN.

Last season, Ujiri was fined $25,000 before the team's playoff series against the Brooklyn Nets for addressing a crowd using an expletive as well.

"I have the deepest respect for Commissioner [Adam] Silver and the NBA, and while showing passion for our team and fans I will choose my words more carefully in the future so as not to indicate otherwise," Ujiri said.

The Wizards defeated the Raptors in Game 1 of their opening round playoff series.

Baltimore Orioles/MLB(NEW YORK) -- After establishing himself as an everyday player, Baltimore Orioles second baseman Jonathan Schoop will be out indefinitely after suffering a right PCL injury (a Grade 1 tear) and an MCL sprain.

Schoop suffered the injury after he was taken out on a slide by Boston Red Sox third baseman Pablo Sandoval over the weekend.

“Yeah, it was on first base,” Schoop told the Baltimore Sun. “When I stood up, I felt it a little bit. But I was able to finish the game. On the last play, I was running a little bit and I felt my legs burning. When I came in it was swollen. …It was swollen a little bit, but I thought ice and treatment would make it better.

“It's really disappointing you want to be there for the team, for myself,” Schoop added. “So far, I was having really good at-bats. It's really disappointing, but there's nothing I can do.”

In his second full season with the Orioles, Schoop was batting .259 with three home runs and seven RBIs.

Christian Petersen/Getty Images(MEMPHIS) -- The Memphis Grizzlies took game one with a 100-86 victory over Portland Sunday after the Trailblazers couldn't find a groove. 

Damian Lillard and LaMarcus Aldridge combined for 46 points; however they only converted on 18 of 55 shots (33%).

On the other end of the court, Beno Udrih scored 20 points for the Grizzlies off the bench.

"Beno gets the game ball," Grizzlies forward Zach Randolph said. "With Mike [Conley] being out, [it] helps him get his confidence up and playing."

Randolph added 16 points of his own and grabbed 11 rebounds. Marc Gasol also grabbed 11 rebounds and added 15 points.

The banged up Trailblazers feel that game one was a jolt to the system.

"I think a good wakeup call for us," Aldridge said. "But definitely tonight they manhandled us."

Todd Warshaw/Getty Images for NASCAR

(BRISTOL) -- The wait was surely worth it.

After four rain delays and eleven extra laps, Matt Kenseth took the checkered flag at Bristol Motor speedway to end a 51-race victory drought.

"It feels good to be back here. Not winning for as long as we did...it wears on you a little bit," Kenseth said. "We had such a good 2013, and last year there were some races we had some chances to win, and just things wouldn't line up for us."

Rain delayed the start of the race for nearly an hour and a half. It was followed up by another delay that stopped the race for almost four hours and one that came as NASCAR attempted to race to the checkered flag.  

"I've got to be honest with you, at least 90 percent of the time or more, I'd be all about, 'Man, call that thing' because anything can go wrong," Kenseth said. "I felt pretty good about where we were. I felt like unless I really, really messed it up, I was going to be clear getting into [Turn] 1. I felt like our car was good enough to hold on for two laps."

Len Redkoles/NHLI via Getty Images(MONTREAL) -- The Montreal Canadiens defeated the Ottawa Senators 2-1 in overtime to grab a 3-0 series lead.

Dale Weise spearheaded the Canadiens' offensive attack, as his goal late in the third period sent the game to overtime, and his goal in overtime brought the victory to Montreal.

"Any time you score a winner like that, it's pretty special," Weise said. "I got pretty excited about that first one, too. That was a big goal. I just felt like we were pressuring and pressuring and we needed a good bounce like that to put the puck in the net. And thank goodness it was me."

Ottawa's goalie Craig Anderson got the nod in place of Andrew Hammond. He blocked 47 of the 49 shots he faced, but was not able to grab the victory.

"The guys battled so hard, played so well and to come up short is frustrating," Anderson said. "I gave the team a chance to win, and that's my job. It's frustrating I wasn't able to get the win for the guys. We've got to put this behind us and get ready to go."
