Wizards get hot from beyond the arc to beat Trail Blazers

em>By Stephen Whyno, Associated Press /em> WASHINGTON (AP) — Bradley Beal scored 25 points and John Wall had 24 as the Washington Wizards took a page from the Portland Trail Blazers' playbook by hitting 13 3-pointers in a comfortable 120-101 victory on Monday afternoon (Tuesday, PHL time). The Wizards, who rely less on the three-pointer than almost any NBA team, were 13-of-23 from beyond the arc in their 12th consecutive home victory. The three-pointer-heavy Trail Blazers shot 8-of-26 on three-point attempts. After Washington coach Scott Brooks called Portland guards Damian Lillard and C.J. McCollum as good as any backcourt in the league, Beal and John Wall outplayed them. Lillard led the Blazers with 22 points and McCollum had 12, but they combined to shoot 11-of-29 from the floor. The Wizards have won four of their last five games. On the final day of All-Star voting, Wall put on show by dunking over Mason Plumlee and hitting a step-back three-pointer from the top of the arc. He finished 10-of-17 and Beal was 7-of-11, including 3-of-3 from three-point territory. Washington opened the game shooting 4-of-5 to jump ahead 10-0 and led by 30 after Marcin Gortat's layup with 4:24 left in the third quarter. Portland cut it as close as 17 in the fourth, forcing Wall and Beal back on the floor, but lost its second game in a row. strong>MLK DAY /strong> Wearing a shirt with the message: 'His dream inspired the world. Never stop dreaming,' Beal took the microphone to address the crowd of 17,395 on Martin Luther King Jr. Day. Brooks said he always stops by the MLK Memorial during his walks around the National Mall. Trail Blazers coach Terry Stotts said about half the team went to the National Museum of African American History and Culture after practice Monday (Tuesday, PHL time). 'It's a little sobering, the African-American experience in this country and also celebrating the contributions of the African-American community,' Stotts said. strong>TIP-INS /strong> em> strong>Trail Blazers: /strong> /em>McCollum's streak of consecutive games with 25-plus points ended at eight. He became the eighth player to score 1,000 points this season, joining Russell Westbrook, James Harden, DeMar DeRozan, Anthony Davis, DeMarcus Cousins, Kevin Durant and Isaiah Thomas.

Lillard returns, helps Blazers beat Lakers

PORTLAND, Ore. (AP) -- CJ McCollum had 27 points and Damian Lillard returned from a sprained ankle with 21 points and 10 assists to lead the Portland Trail Blazers to a 118-109 victory over the Los Angeles Lakers on Thursday night (Friday, PHL time). It was Portland's ninth straight regular-season victory over the Lakers, a franchise record. D'Angelo Russell had 22 points, 10 in the fourth quarter, and Jordan Clarkson added 21 off the bench for Los Angeles, which led by 14 in the first half. Russell's turnaround jumper put the Lakers up 101-99 midway through the final period. He added a pair of free throws, but Lillard hit a three-pointer that closed the gap for Portland. McCollum's floater put Portland in front before he hit a triple with 4:06 to go that pushed the lead to 107-103. He added another basket that extended the lead, and the crowd chanted 'Beat L-A!

Curry and Durant lead Warriors past Trail Blazers

em>By Janie McCauley, Associated Press /em> OAKLAND, Calif. -- Stephen Curry had 35 points with five three-pointers, Kevin Durant scored 30 points and blocked three shots and the Golden State Warriors beat the Portland Trail Blazers 125-117 on Wednesday night (Thursday, PHL time). Zaza Pachulia scored 13 points to hit double figures in consecutive games for the first time this season, just his fourth time reaching double digits for Golden State. He also matched his career-high with three blocks in the Warriors' ninth straight home win. C.J. McCollum scored 35 points to lead a Portland team still without Damian Lillard, and the Trail Blazers certainly had to feel better about hanging tough in this one after their forgettable 45-point defeat here 2.5 weeks earlier. Curry shot 12-for-25 on a night Splash Brother Klay Thompson struggled to find his stroke from long range, going 1-of-7 and scoring 14 points. Curry added seven rebounds and five assists. .....»»

McCollum scores 43 as Blazers top Timberwolves

MINNEAPOLIS (AP) -- C.J. McCollum scored a career-high 43 points and the Portland Trail Blazers overcame a 14-point first-half deficit in a 95-89 victory over the Minnesota Timberwolves on Sunday night (Monday, PHL time). Mason Plumlee had 18 points and eight rebounds, and Evan Turner added 11 points for the Blazers. They were without star point guard Damian Lillard for the fourth straight game. McCollum made 16-of-25 shots, including a 30-foot three-pointer with just over 2:30 to play to put the game out of reach. Andrew Wiggins scored 24 points for the Timberwolves. But Karl-Anthony Towns had just 11 points on 3-for-15 shooting and missed all six of his three-pointers. Zach LaVine also was quiet with 13 points on 5-for-12 shooting. Portland had lost seven of its last eight and was floundering with its star on the bench with ankle problems. Lillard was listed as doubtful for the game with that sprained left ankle. He worked out hard before the game and showed no noticeable limp, but the Blazers started McCollum at point guard again with two days off before their next scheduled game. McCollum, who was averaging 26 points per game with Lillard out, scored 13 points in a ragged first quarter and put up 16 in a 32-15 third quarter that helped the Blazers turn a 14-point deficit into a five-point lead going into the fourth. The Wolves came back to tie it with 7:23 to play, but Shabazz Napier hit a big triple, Turner hit a soft jumper and Allen Crabbe knocked down another three to put the Blazers in front for good. strong>TIP-INS /strong> em> strong>Trail Blazers: /strong> /em> Crabbe had 10 points and a career-high eight rebounds.

He did not play in the fourth quarter. Minnesota entered the game 10th in the NBA in free throw shooting, but missed six of them on Sunday night (Monday, PHL time). Towns did have 13 rebounds and six assists, all in the first quarter. strong>MISSING MOTIEJUNAS /strong> The Timberwolves had a workout scheduled with free agent forward Donatas Motiejunas as they considered adding him to help them bolster a bench that has struggled mightily this season. After working out with New Orleans, Motiejunas took a flight to Minneapolis on Sunday (Monday, PHL time). But by the time he got off the plane, he had an offer from the Pelicans on the table and canceled his workout with the Timberwolves.

Sixers rally by Blazers for eighth win in 10 games

PHILADELPHIA (AP) Robert Covington scored 22 points and made two 3-pointers in the final 40 seconds to lead the streaking Philadelphia 76ers to a come-from-behind 93-92 win over the Portland Trail Blazers on Friday night. Ersan Ilyasova scored 24 points and Joel Embiid added 18 points, 10 rebounds and five assists for the Sixers, who have won four straight and eight of their last 10. Embiid, who sparked the recent surge, suffered a bruised left knee in the second half and didn't play the final 8:50 of the game. But the Sixers rallied for the victory without their prized center as Covington drilled the winner with 4.5 seconds left before Mason Plumlee missed a shot at the buzzer on the other end. It was Covington's second game-winning basket this month after his buzzer-beater sunk the Timberwolves on Jan. 4.

em>By Kareem Copeland, Associated Pres /em> SALT LAKE CITY (AP) -- Gordon Hayward went blow for blow with LeBron James in the second half to help the Utah Jazz beat the Cleveland Cavaliers 100-92 on Tuesday night (Wednesday, PHL time). Hayward had 22 points and went back and forth with James during a decisive third quarter. James brought the Cavs back from a 15-point halftime deficit before Hayward drove the lead back to 14. Hayward had 11 points while the Jazz used a 16-0 run midway through the quarter to lead 74-60. The Cavs had a 17-0 roll after halftime thanks an aggressive James and his 13 third-quarter points.

James finished with 29 points and Kyrie Irving added 20 for the defending champs.

em>By Erik Garcia Gundersen, Associated Press /em> PORTLAND, Ore. -- Kentavious Caldwell-Pope hit a three-pointer with 9.4 seconds left and the Detroit Pistons outlasted the Portland Trail Blazers 125-124 in double-overtime Sunday night (Monday, PHL time) in a game postponed a day because of a winter storm. Reggie Jackson led Detroit with 31 points, Andre Drummond had 28 points and 14 rebounds, and Caldwell-Pope finished with 26. The Pistons have won two straight for the first time since Dec. 2 (Dec. 3, PHL time). CJ McCollum had 35 points for Portland in the game with 14 lead changes and 11 ties.
