MIAMI -- Canadian Milos Raonic knows what fuelled the 100th hardcourt victory of his professional career. Jason Motte Jersey . The 23-year-old from Thornhill, Ont., defeated Germanys Benjamin Becker 6-3, 6-4 on Tuesday in the fourth round of the Sony Open in just 89 minutes. "It was good Timbits," joked Raonic. He then explained that his goal was to advance to the quarter-finals of the Sony Open, a tournament he had struggled in in the past two years. "I think that is a bonus on getting the win, which was the main focus," said Raonic of his 100th hardcourt victory. Raonic will play top seed Rafael Nadal, who beat Italian Fabio Fognini 6-2, 6-2 in 62 minutes. Nadal has won all four matches hes had with Raonic. "When he gets ahead in the points hes difficult to keep up with," said Raonic. "I have to get ahead in the points early and stay ahead. And obviously serving, as well, is going to be key. "I think the biggest difficulty of playing Rafa is there is really nobody that plays like him, so whenever you come up against him in the tournament its quite different." On Tuesday, Raonic was frustrated on his first two match point chances in the final game as he tried to end the contest with a break of Beckers serve. But Becker thwarted the 12th seed on both winning occasions thanks to Raonic errors. Raonic went back to work, setting up another match-winner with an overhead from deep in the backcourt only to have Becker save it. Raonic finally claimed victory after a second set which lasted one hour. "I was not losing any points on my serve pretty much, but I was not dealing with it the right way when he was getting a few returns back in play," said Raonic. Raonic will wait for an opponent as top seed Rafael Nadal faces Italian 14th seed Fabio Fognini. Raonic stands 0-4 against Nadal and split with Fognini in a pair of 2013 matches. Reaching the quarter-finals was a breakthrough for Raonic, who has stalled at the third round at the last two Sony Opens. He had to withdraw with strep throat at last years edition after going out injured the year before in a walkover to Andy Murray. Despite landing heavily on his left leg and wearing kinesio tape on much of his back, Raonic insisted he is not suffering physically. "The are just really, really minor things that are little nicks, but nothing that affects me in any way," he said.

Heck, we might just miss the BCS. Maybe? It sort of worked out this season. Top-ranked Florida State (13-0) was the only team to get through the regular season unbeaten, and the Seminoles did it in dominating fashion.Brooklyn, NY (SportsNetwork.com) - DeMarre Carroll scored 18 points on 7-of-10 shooting to lead Atlanta to a 98-75 win over Brooklyn at Barclays Center Friday. Carrolls 14 second-quarter points keyed a dominant period for the Hawks that saw them outscore the Nets 36-13. Paul Millsap contributed 17 points and nine rebounds in the winning effort, Atlantas fifth straight, and Jeff Teague and Dennis Schroder scored 14 and 13 points, respectively. Brook Lopez paced Brooklyn with 20 points and seven boards as the Nets saw their two-game winning streak come to an end. Joe Johnson totaled 12 points with six rebounds and four assists for Brooklyn. In the second quarter, Atlanta established its defense and shut down the Nets. The Hawks turned their two-point deficit after one into a double-digit lead with a 21-4 run over the first eight minutes of the quarter thanks to poor Nets shooting. Brooklyns second field goal did not come until there was 3:47 remaining before halftime. Atlantas biggest lead of the first half came right at the buzzer. Carroll hit a 3-pointer to beat the clock and give the Hawks a 52-31 lead. Carroll finished with 16 points in the half to lead all scorers. Ian Desmond Jersey. Brooklyn shot just 31.7 percent from the floor in the first half, and although its efficiency improved after the break, Atlanta maintained a large, steady lead throughout. At the 4:32 mark of the third quarter, a Lopez three-point play brought the Brooklyn deficit to 18 points, but that was the last time it would be within 20. The Hawks lead ballooned to as much as 32 when they started the final quarter on a 15-6 run when Schroder scored 11 of his 13 points. In the final six minutes of the game, Brooklyn was able to make it a little more respectable with a 14-5 run. Cory Jefferson scored all six of his points for the Nets in those closing minutes. Game Notes Brooklyn failed in its third opportunity to win three straight games this season ... Johnson played in his 1,000th NBA game ... Atlanta has scored over 90 points in all 18 games this season ... The Nets return to the court Monday to conclude a three-game homestand against Cleveland ...
