Warriors chill Heat with Klay Thompson resting

em>By Janie McCauley, Associated Press /em> OAKLAND, Calif. (AP) — Stephen Curry had 24 points, nine assists and eight rebounds, Kevin Durant added 28 points and the Golden State Warriors picked it up late to beat the Miami Heat 107-95 on Tuesday night (Wednesday, PHL time) in another victory while hardly at their best. Durant also had eight rebounds and Draymond Green had 13 points, nine rebounds and five assists in the Warriors' fifth straight win against the Heat and eighth in 10, including three in a row at home. Klay Thompson had the night off for rest after he played through illness the past two games. Coach Steve Kerr said he was worn down. Hassan Whiteside had 28 points and 20 rebounds for the Heat, who were outscored 26-14 in the third quarter after leading 54-53 at halftime. Rookie Patrick McCaw made his first career start in Thompson's place and contributed a key 3-pointer in the third that put the Warriors ahead 67-60. While they finished with 28 assists, that zippy passing game the Warriors have with Thompson on the court wasn't quite as crisp -- though one pretty sequence of several quick touches led to Ian Clark's key triple on a pass from Andre Iguodala with 5:44 to go. Iguodala later dished to Clark again for a layup. Curry hit just 4-of-11 three-pointers as the Warriors shot 11-for-27 from beyond the arc and 45.3 percent overall. The two-time reigning NBA MVP fell short of a fourth straight game with 30 or more points. Golden State, which played its lone road game in 10 on Sunday (Monday, PHL time) with a bus trip to nearby Sacramento, again struggled to find an offensive flow while missing everything from layups to open three’s during stretches. Miami lost its third straight game and dropped to 1-4 on this five-game road as coach Erik Spoelstra works to help his team find 'our identity on both ends of the court and doing it more consistently.' Whiteside's alley-oop dunk with 7:15 remaining pulled the Heat within 85-80 and forced a Warriors timeout. Tyler Johnson scored to make it a three-point game before the Warriors closed it out in their typical, impressive fashion. Luke Babbitt returned for Miami after sitting out against the Clippers on Sunday (Monday, PHL time) with an illness, but he was limited in 18 minutes. Zaza Pachulia had scored in double figures in four straight games for the Warriors but had eight points, six rebounds and three assists. strong>QUOTABLE /strong> Kerr was asked about visiting the White House with Donald Trump as President if the Warriors were to win a championship. 'I certainly hope that we have to have that decision to make next year,' he said. 'I'll move on to the next question.' strong>TIP-INS /strong> em> strong>Heat: /strong> /em>Whiteside has eight or more rebounds in a career-high and franchise-best 50 straight games. The Heat have held opponents below 50 percent from the field in 33-of-40 games. Udonis Haslem was available but didn't play while dealing with a chest cold. em> strong>Warriors: /strong> /em>Clark notched his eighth game scoring in double figures. Golden State outscored Miami 21-9 on fast-break points in the first half. Since 2014-15, Golden State is 33-2 at home against the Eastern Conference and 5-0 this season. Chicago and Boston are the lone East teams to win at Oracle Arena during that span. strong>UP NEXT /strong> em> strong>Heat: /strong> /em>At Milwaukee on Friday night (Saturday, PHL time) to wrap up this trip after beating the Bucks 96-73 on Nov. 17 (Nov. 18, PHL time).

NCAA Season 95: San Beda cruises to second straight win

Veteran hitter Cesca Racraquin once again starred for San Beda University as the Lady Red Spikers claimed its second straight win with a 25-13, 25-9, 25-21, drubbing of San Sebastian College on Tuesday in the NCAA Season 95 women’s volleyball tournament at the FilOil Flying V Centre in San Juan. The fourth year skipper finished with 19 points off 13 attacks and six aces and added three excellent receptions while providing stability for San Beda in the closing stretch of the third set to power the Lady Red Spikers to a 2-0 win-loss record, tied with three-time defending champion Arellano University. San Beda mentor Nemesio Gavino praised his wards for their great service game and for limiting their errors to just 15 compared to 36 miscues they committed in a five-set escape over Jose Rizal University the last time out. The Lady Red Spikers landed 13 aces and poured 36 attack points. “Na-lessen namin ang error namin tapos yung service, gumana ang service namin,” said Gavino. “Maraming naging ace ang nangyari so naging maganda para sa amin.” Nieza Viray added 14 points for San Beda while Ella Viray and Trisha Paras combined for 10 markers. After cruising in the first two sets and a great start in the third, the Mendiola-based squad suddenly found itself trailing the young Lady Stags, 17-18. The Lady Red Spikers answered with five straight points but SSC-R fought back to move within 23-21. Racraquin pushed San Beda to match point before Kim Manzano finished off the Lady Stags with a quick kill. No SSC-R player reached double-figure scoring with Shannai Requirme and Reyann Canete piling up eight and seven points, respectively, in the Lady Stags’ third loss in as many games tied with Lyceum of the Philippines University. Meanwhile, the Stags barged in the win column after three games with a 25-22, 25-20, 37-35, triumph over the Red Spikers. Reynald Honra got 19 points with 17 off kills and added 15 excellent receptions while John Mark Lim and Dominique Ramirez finished with 15 and 14 points, respectively, for SSC-R. San Beda slid to 1-1 card tied with victim Jose Rizal University.     --- Follow this writer on Twitter, @fromtheriles.....»»
