Kings storm back in 4th quarter to stun Thunder, 94-93

By Michael Wagaman, Associated Press SACRAMENTO, Calif. (AP) — Bogdan Bogdanovic made a 3-pointer with 13.4 seconds remaining, and the Sacramento Kings overcame an 11-point deficit in the fourth quarter to beat the Oklahoma City Thunder 94-93 on Wednesday night (Thursday, PHL time). Both teams committed turnovers with the game tied in the final minute before Shai Gilgeous-Alexander hit two free throws to put the Thunder up 93-91 with 31.6 seconds left. Bogdanovic, who missed five of his first six 3s, got the ball outside the arc and paused as Oklahoma City defender Dennis Schroder went flying past him trying for a block. Bogdanovic then hit a 28-foot jumper to give Sacramento the lead. Chris Paul missed a shot from the elbow for the Thunder as time expired. Buddy Hield had eight of his 23 points in the fourth quarter for the Kings. Bogdanovic scored 17 and Marvin Bagley III added 11 points and six rebounds after missing the previous 22 games with a broken right thumb. Schroder had 17 points to lead six Thunder players in double figures. Paul wasn’t one of them. Oklahoma City’s point guard had eight points, 12 assists and seven rebounds. The Thunder had won three straight. Sacramento trailed by 14 early in the third but made a late run and cut the gap to 71-69 following back-to-back 3s by Hield, who had missed six of his first seven attempts from beyond the arc. TIP-INS Thunder: Schroder’s three 3-pointers in the first half matched that of the entire Sacramento team. Oklahoma City finished with 13 3s. … Steven Adams had 12 points and 11 rebounds. Kings: Bagley’s first shot was an airball. He finished 5 of 13. … Hield missed nine of his first 11 shots. … Sacramento had only three assists in the first half and finished with 12. UP NEXT Thunder: End their four-game road trip Saturday (Sunday, PHL time) in Denver. Oklahoma City lost all four games to the Nuggets last season. Kings: Host the New York Knicks on Friday (Saturday, PHL time). Sacramento won the first game between the teams this season, 113-92 at Madison Square Garden.....»»

Morris leads Knicks past Warriors in OT to snap 10-game skid

By Joe Stiglich, Associated Press SAN FRANCISCO (AP) — Marcus Morris scored a season-high 36 points and the New York Knicks held off the Golden State Warriors 124-122 in overtime Wednesday night (Thursday, PHL time) to snap a 10-game losing streak. Julius Randle added 24 points and 13 rebounds as New York (5-20) fought off a furious Warriors comeback and gave Mike Miller his first win as interim coach. Golden State (5-21) trailed by 21 in the second quarter but roared back to take the lead with just more than eight minutes left. The teams with the two worst records in the NBA then staged an entertaining finish, with D’Angelo Russell hitting a 3-pointer for Golden State to tie it at 112 with 3.9 seconds to go in the fourth. That sent the game to overtime, but New York controlled the extra period. Randle’s 3-pointer broke a 114-all tie and put the Knicks in front for good. Russell finished with 32 points, but the injury-depleted Warriors lost for the second consecutive game to start what appeared to be a promising homestand that afforded the chance for a couple of victories. The Knicks had their way inside in the first two quarters, shooting 58% and outscoring the Warriors in the paint 32-18. Morris had 18 points as the Knicks took a 68-50 lead into the break. New York closed the first quarter on an 11-0 run to push its lead into double digits. Golden State’s cold shooting during Monday’s (Tuesday, PHL time) loss to Memphis carried over. Many of those misses came from close range, too, as the Warriors hit just 17 of their 51 shots (33%) in the first half. TIP-INS Knicks: Miller, three games into his tenure after David Fizdale was fired, said the front office hasn’t given him any indication whether he’ll be leading the team for the rest of the season. “We’re in constant communication. They’ve been really supportive. It’s just been about getting to the next game. I’m fine with that,” he said. Warriors: F Eric Paschall was listed as questionable Wednesday morning (Wednesday evening, PHL time) with a sore left hip, but he was in the starting lineup for the 19th time in Golden State’s 26 games. He scored only five points in just under 17 minutes. UP NEXT Knicks: Visit the Sacramento Kings on Friday (Saturday, PHL time), the third stop on this four-game road trip. Warriors: Play on Friday (Saturday, PHL time) at Utah, where they hung tough before losing by four in November......»»

Reeling Knicks drop 10th straight, 115-87 to Trail Blazers

By Anne M. Peterson, Associated Press Damian Lillard had 31 points, including eight 3-pointers, and the Portland Trail Blazers handed the New York Knicks their 10th straight loss, 115-87 on Tuesday night (Wednesday, PHL time). Hassan Whiteside added 17 points and 15 rebounds, and the Blazers ended a two-game skid. Portland led by as many as 32 points. Julius Randle had 15 points for the Knicks, who have won just four games, fewest in the league. They have one win on the road. The Knicks opened their four-game West Coast trip in disarray after coach David Fizdale was fired on Friday (Saturday, PHL time), just hours after he ran practice. Mike Miller was named interim head coach, and New York lost 104-103 at home to Indiana the next night. In Portland, New York faced Carmelo Anthony, who played for the Knicks from 2011-17. When the Blazers picked up Anthony on Nov. 19 (Nov. 20, PHL time), the 10-time All-Star had been out of the game for more than a year. But he has fit in well with Portland as a starter, averaging nearly 16 points and six rebounds a game. Anthony finished with 16 points. Portland was coming off a 108-86 loss at home to Oklahoma City on Sunday (Monday, PHL time), with the team still reeling from the loss of Rodney Hood, who tore his left Achilles tendon in a loss to the Lakers on Friday (Saturday, PHL time). Hood will miss the rest of the season. Lillard's step-back 3 pointer put the Blazers up 32-22 at the end of the first quarter. Lillard had 17 points in the opening period. Portland led by as many as 21 points in the half and was up 60-41 at the break behind 25 points from Lillard. The Knicks were 2 of 15 from 3-point range in the first half and 7 of 38 for the game. Lillard's 28-foot 3 pointer put the Blazers up 74-47 midway through the third quarter. He didn't play the final quarter. Anthony and CJ McCollum went to the bench for good early in the fourth. Miller also sat his starters for much of the final period. TIP-INS Knicks: New York hasn't beaten Portland since November 2016, losing six straight. Trail Blazers: A report surfaced earlier Tuesday (Wednesday, PHL time) that Kevin Love, currently with the Cleveland Cavaliers, would be interested in playing for Portland. Love grew up in Oregon and was a star at Lake Oswego High School. The Blazers are considered candidates to make deals when trade restrictions lift on Dec. 15 because of their need at forward. UP NEXT The Knicks' road swing continues at Golden State on Wednesday night (Thursday, PHL time). The Trail Blazers visit Denver on Thursday (Friday, PHL time), the first of a two-game trip......»»

Rose caps big 4th with winning jumper, Pistons edge Pelicans

NEW ORLEANS (AP) — Derrick Rose hit a 14-foot jumper in the lane with 0.3 seconds left and scored 17 of his 21 points in the fourth quarter to lift the Detroit Pistons over the skidding New Orleans Pelicans 105-103 Monday night. With the game tied, Detroit worked an isolation play for Rose, who dribbled the ball out top against Jrue Holiday. Rose drove into the lane, spun to the right and hit the jumper over Holiday's outstretched arms. New Orleans inbounded the ball from halfcourt toward Jaxson Hayes, but the rookie center could not get the tying tip-in and the Pelicans lost their ninth straight game. Rose scored 11 of the Pistons’ first 13 points in the fourth quarter to put Detroit on top 92-84, but New Orleans whittled the deficit to 96-95 on a turnaround baseline jumper by Brandon Ingram with 4:49 left. Ingram's 18-foot turnaround gave New Orleans a 103-101 lead with 1:11 to go, but Rose hit a spinning layup to tie it at 103 with 38.7 seconds remaining. Ingram missed a tough-angle jumper from the left baseline, and Detroit called a timeout with 14.7 seconds to play. Ingram finished with a game-high 31 points, and Holiday had 20. Detroit had three players in double figures besides Rose: Langston Galloway (16 points), Luke Kennard (14) and Andre Drummond (13). Drummond also grabbed 10 rebounds. The Pelicans missed their first 10 3-point attempts in the third quarter and Detroit erased a six-point deficit to take a 67-61 lead. The Pistons finished off a 34-21 period with a 7-1 run for an 81-74 advantage. New Orleans held the Pistons to 33% shooting in the first half to take a 53-47 lead. It was the fewest points scored in the first half by a Pelicans opponent this season. Ingram did most of the damage for New Orleans, scoring 17 points on 5-of-9 shooting and making all five foul shots. The Pelicans could have had a bigger lead but were hurt by 22% shooting from 3-point range, including 1 of 5 by sharpshooter JJ Redick. Hayes came off the bench to score 10 first-half points and energized the small New Orleans crowd with a tomahawk dunk over Drummond in the first quarter. Pistons star Blake Griffin scored just three points in the first half, missing six of seven shots. TIP-INS Pistons: Improved to 3-9 on the road. … Detroit has won four of five for the first time this season. Pelicans: The team’s marketing slogan this season has been “Won’t Bow Down,” reinforced every game before tipoff by an employee banging a drum at midcourt. In the wake of a 46-point road loss to Dallas on Saturday, the drumbeat was shelved, at least temporarily. ... Derrick Favors, who has missed the last seven games since the unexpected death of his mother, has returned to the team but did not play against Detroit. UP NEXT Pistons: Play the Dallas Mavericks in Mexico City on Thursday night. Pelicans: Play at Milwaukee on Wednesday night. The Eastern Conference-leading Bucks have won 15 in a row......»»

Thunder opens road trip with 108-96 win in Portland

By Anne M. Peterson, Associated Press PORTLAND, Ore (AP) — Dennis Schroder and Shai Gilgeous-Alexander each scored 21 points and the Oklahoma City Thunder opened a four-game trip with a 108-96 victory over the Portland Trail Blazers on Sunday night (Monday, PHL time). The Thunder, who led by as many as 18 points in the first half, have won four of their last five games, the team's best stretch of the season. Chris Paul finished with 20 points. Damian Lillard had 26 for the Blazers, who have lost three of four. After trailing 55-47 at the break, the Blazers closed the gap in the third quarter and the Thunder held just an 82-78 advantage going into the final period. But Danilo Gallinari's 3-pointer put Oklahoma City up 95-87 with 4:14 left and Moda Center fans started streaming to the exits. Gilgeous-Alexander hit a 3-pointer and a floater that extended Oklahoma City's margin to 100-89 with 3:13 left and essentially put the game out of reach for the Blazers. Portland (9-15) was coming off a costly 136-113 loss to the Los Angeles Lakers. Starting forward Rodney Hood tore his Achilles during the first half and will miss the rest of the season. The Blazers had already lost forward Zach Collins to a shoulder injury that required surgery. And center Jusuf Nurkic continues to rehab from a broken leg. Portland made a move to shore up the frontcourt with the Nov. 19 signing of 10-time All-Star Carmelo Anthony, who hadn't played for more than a year. Anthony has fit in well with the Blazers, averaging 16.7 points and 5.6 rebounds through his first nine games. But he struggled against the Thunder, going 4 of 18 from the field and finishing with just nine points. Kent Bazemore started in Hood's place against Oklahoma City. Oklahoma City (10-12) was without Terrance Ferguson because of right hip soreness for the second straight game. Coach Billy Donovan said before the game that he expects Ferguson will miss Monday night's (Tuesday, PHL time) game at the Jazz as well. Abdel Nader started in his place. The Thunder were coming off a 139-127 overtime victory over the Minnesota Timberwolves on Friday (Saturday, PHL time). Oklahoma City forced overtime when Steven Adams threw a length-of-the-court pass that Schroder caught and laid in at the buzzer. The game got attention because Thunder guard Chris Paul alerted the officials that Minnesota's Jordan Bell had an untucked shirt, which led to a technical foul that helped the trailing Thunder send the game to overtime. Neither team looked sharp at the start on Sunday (Monday, PHL time). Oklahoma City held a slight 21-20 lead at the end of the first quarter, on 31.8% shooting. Portland shot 27.6% to open the game. Schroder's pull-up jumper stretched the Thunder's lead to 41-29 midway through the second quarter. Portland clawed back into it and closed to within 51-47 on Anthony's 3-pointer, which capped a 10-0 Blazers run. But Portland couldn't get closer and trailed 55-47 at the break. Paul led all players with 16 points. Portland closed within 62-60 on Lillard's 3-pointer in the third quarter. The Blazers eventually pulled in front when Lillard made a trio of free throws, but it was short lived and the Thunder led 82-78 going into the final quarter. The teams split their first two games earlier this season. TIP-INS Thunder: In the third quarter a fan dropped a phone on the court and Dennis Schroder picked it up and handed it back. ... It was the first of a four-game trip for Oklahoma City. ... Luguentz Dort fouled out with 4:34 left in the game. Trail Blazers: Damian Lillard went 0 for 6 from the field to start the game. His first basket was a floater with less than a minute left in the opening quarter. Then he had 16 points in the third quarter alone. ... Hassan Whiteside finished with 14 points and 10 rebounds. UP NEXT Thunder: Oklahoma City plays the second of a back-to-back Monday night (Tuesday, PHL time) at Utah. Trail Blazers: Portland hosts the New York Knicks on Tuesday (Wednesday, PHL time)......»»

8 players making 2018 Draft one of most productive ever

By Steve Aschburner, NBA.com Devonte’ Graham isn’t the only member of the 2018 Draft class enjoying a stellar sophomore season. Injuries have held back Phoenix’s Deandre Ayton and Sacramento’s Marvin Bagley, but that hasn’t stopped the Class of ’18 from being one of the most productive and promising in recent NBA memory. With Graham included, here are seven other standouts at the 2019-20 quarter pole: Luka Doncic, Dallas (No. 3 pick overall): Never mind the “super sophs” list -- Doncic is getting All-NBA and even Kia MVP consideration for his breathtaking work for the Mavericks. At 30.7 points, 10.3 rebounds and 9.4 assists per game, he’d be a no-brain No. 1 pick if this group were re-drafted. Trae Young, Atlanta (No. 5): The Hawks are fortunate Young has been so dynamic (28.2 ppg, 8.3 apg) and entertaining, sparing them from the second-guessing that normally might have accompanied their decision to swap picks that night with Dallas. Collin Sexton, Cleveland (No. 8): The Alabama product flew below the radar on a losing team last season before landing on the All-Rookie squad and he’s been doing the same this season. His 3-point shooting and assists are down, but Sexton is taking better care of the ball and is up in most categories (18.1 ppg). Shai Gilgeous-Alexander, OKC (No. 11): It’s to SGA’s credit that Thunder GM Sam Presti, so fixated on Draft picks in dealing away Paul George and Russell Westbrook, saw him as a legit piece for OKC’s future. Gilgeous-Alexander has scored at least 20 points nine times, including 26 in his debut and 28 the next game. Jaren Jackson Jr., Memphis (No. 4): A year ago, Jackson became the first NBA rookie to record at least 50 blocks, 50 steals and 50 3-pointers. This season, he’s back at it, averaging 18.3 ppg in his last 12 games while hitting 43% from the arc. He had 31 points vs. Indiana Monday, picking up slack for injured Ja Morant and Jonas Valunciunas. Wendell Carter Jr., Chicago (No. 7): Carter has stayed healthy so far and looks like a Bulls building block despite the team’s dreary start. He's at 12.6 ppg, 9.7 rpg and 56.6% shooting while showing some of the Al Horford similarities for which he was touted in college. Mitchell Robinson, New York (No. 36): Like Graham, Robinson was a second-round gem. His presence is felt most at the rim and on the glass, where his shot-swatting (1.9 bpg), rebounds (6.6) and efficient offense (67.9% shooting) have kept him out of the blame game for the Knicks’ horrible record.

4 stats to know about the Bucks 12-game win streak

NBA.com staff report The Milwaukee Bucks made it look easy again on Monday (Tuesday, PHL time), demolishing the New York Knicks 132-88 for their 12th straight victory. That win gave Milwaukee its longest winning streak since the 1980s and got us thinking about some numbers you should know from their run to date. * * * 1. Milwaukee’s winning streak is the longest in the NBA this season and the franchise’s longest since the 1981-82 season. The Bucks (18-3) own the league’s best record, ahead of the Los Angeles Lakers (17-3). 2. Not surprisingly, this 12-game win streak has been fueled by Giannis Antetokounmpo's play. He's had a double-double in 11 of the 12 games and came one rebound shy of making it perfect in a Nov. 30 (Dec. 1, PHL time) romp against the Hornets. That game ended his string of 19 straight double-doubles, but he got back to work on Monday night (Tuesday, PHL time). Antetokounmpo did so in amazing fashion needing just 22 minutes of game action to log 29 points and 15 rebounds against the Knicks. In doing so, he added another 25-point, 15-rebound game to his league-leading total this season. 3. The Bucks are not only rolling up the wins, they're rolling through opponents in the process. On Saturday (Sunday, PHL time), they beat the Hornets 137-96 (a 41-point margin) and followed that up with Monday's (Tuesday, PHL time) 44-point victory against the Knicks. They'll have a shot at some unique history on Wednesday (Thursday, PHL time) against Detroit as they can become the first team to log three straight wins of 40 or more points. This scoring surge shouldn't come as a huge surprise, though. After averaging a league-high 118.1 ppg last season, the Bucks again lead the NBA in scoring so far this season with 120.8 ppg. In addition to that, Milwaukee has scored at least 100 points in their last 44 regular season games dating back to Feb. 23 of last season. 4. As good as Milwaukee has been, there's still a chance they could set more team records in the coming days. The Bucks just passed the season's quarter point and will play their 25th game of 2019-20 next week. The number 25 is significant because Milwaukee is on pace for perhaps its best start ever through that many games. The Bucks' next four games are as follows: at Detroit on Wednesday (Thursday, PHL time), vs. the LA Clippers on Friday (Saturday, PHL time), vs. the Orlando Magic on Dec. 9 (Dec. 10, PHL time) and vs. the New Orleans Pelicans on Dec. 11 (Dec. 12, PHL time). A perfect run through those games would put the Bucks at 22-3 and give Milwaukee its best-ever start through the first 25 games of a season. * * * Information from The Associated Press was used in this report......»»

Hornets complete home-and-home sweep of Pistons, 110-107

By The Associated Press DETROIT (AP) — Langston Galloway’s shot from near midcourt rimmed out at the buzzer, and the Charlotte Hornets held on for a 110-107 victory over the Detroit Pistons on Friday night (Saturday, PHL time). Charlotte completed a home-and-home sweep of the Pistons this week. Detroit must be wondering what it has to do to beat the Hornets. Charlotte edged the Pistons 109-106 earlier in the month and 102-101 on Wednesday night (Thursday, PHL time). This matchup went down to the wire again. The Hornets rallied from an eight-point deficit in the final quarter and led by three with 8.9 seconds left. Detroit inbounded the ball, and Luke Kennard missed a 3-pointer from near the top of the key. Galloway was able to run down the loose ball, and his last-ditch shot looked on line, but it wouldn’t go in. P.J. Washington scored 26 points for Charlotte, and Terry Rozier added 23. The Hornets were without center Cody Zeller because of a left hip injury. Derrick Rose led the Pistons with 23 points. SPURS 107, CLIPPERS 97 SAN ANTONIO (AP) — LaMarcus Aldridge and Derrick White each had 17 points, and San Antonio beat Kawhi Leonard and Los Angeles. The Spurs stopped the Clippers’ seven-game win streak in Leonard’s second appearance in San Antonio as an opponent. Leonard finished with 19 points on 8-for-23 shooting. San Antonio had lost two straight and 12 of 14, but found its footing against Los Angeles. Leonard spent his first seven seasons in San Antonio before demanding a trade. He was shipped off to Toronto and won his second NBA Finals MVP last season before joining the Clippers as a free agent. Leonard’s initial return to San Antonio on Jan. 24 (Jan. 25, PHL time) resulted in thunderous boos and a 125-107 loss for the Raptors. BUCKS 119, CAVALIERS 110 CLEVELAND (AP) — Giannis Antetokounmpo scored 11 of his 33 points in the fourth quarter and Milwaukee held off Cleveland for its 10th straight victory. Antetokounmpo grabbed 12 rebounds and has had double-doubles in every game this season for Milwaukee, at 16-3 the top team in the Eastern Conference. The Bucks hadn't won 10 in a row since the 1985-86 season. Hill scored 18 points, and Middleton, playing for the second time since missing seven games with a bruised left thigh, had 12. Cleveland has dropped nine of 10. Rookie Darius Garland scored 21 points, including five 3-pointers, and Cedi Osman had 20. Tristan Thompson had 11 points and 13 rebounds, including the 5,000th of his career in the first half. Love, who is playing despite dealing with a sore back, had 16 points and eight rebounds in 31 minutes. RAPTORS 90, MAGIC 83 ORLANDO, Fla. (AP) — Norman Powell scored a career-best 33 points as Toronto won its sixth straight game, beating Orlando. Powell was 7-for-9 shooting in the third quarter, including three 3-pointers. Fred Van Fleet added 22 points for the Raptors, who won despite Pascal Siakam's 4-for-22 shooting. Siakam finished with 10 points and 13 rebounds. Evan Fournier scored 19 points for Orlando, which has lost four of five. Markelle Fultz added 15 points. Aaron Gordon, who played 32 minutes for Orlando after missing three games with a right ankle contusion, had eight points and eight rebounds. NETS 112, CELTICS 107 NEW YORK (AP) — Spencer Dinwiddie had 32 points and 11 assists while Kyrie Irving was again unable to face his former team, and Brooklyn beat Boston to split a home-and-home series. Irving missed his eighth straight game with a right shoulder injury but was at the arena to get an evaluation and watch from the bench along with Kevin Durant as Dinwiddie kept up his strong play in his place. The Eastern Conference player of the week last week matched his highest assist total of the season and was two shy of his best scoring performance of the season. Jarrett Allen added 14 points and 11 rebounds for the Nets, who bounced back from their 121-110 loss in Boston on Wednesday night to win for the fifth time in six games. Jayson Tatum had 26 points and nine rebounds for the Celtics. HEAT 122, WARRIORS 105 MIAMI (AP) — Goran Dragic scored 20 points, Tyler Herro added 19 and Miami remained perfect at home this season. Duncan Robinson scored 17 for Miami, which is 8-0 at home for the second time in franchise history — tying the mark set by the 2012-13 Heat. Robinson and Herro were a combined 10 for 13 from 3-point range. Jimmy Butler scored 16, while Kendrick Nunn and Kelly Olynyk each had 15 for the Heat. Jordan Poole scored 20 for injury-ravaged Golden State, which was playing the opener of a five-game road trip. Eric Paschall scored 17 and Alec Burks finished with 16 for the Warriors. The Warriors are one of four teams without back-to-back wins this season, joining Chicago, Detroit and New York. 76ERS 101, KNICKS 95 NEW YORK (AP) — Joel Embiid had 27 points and 17 rebounds, James Ennis III scored 18 of his 20 points in the second half, and Philadelphia overcame a sluggish start and beat New York. Tobias Harris scored 19, and Ben Simmons chipped in 16 points, including a game-sealing steal and dunk late in the fourth quarter for the 76ers, who have won two straight and six of seven. Julius Randle had 22 points and 10 rebounds, and Marcus Morris Sr. scored 20 points for the Knicks, who have lost a season-high five straight. The 76ers were playing without starters Al Horford (rest) and Josh Richardson (right hamstring injury) and it showed in the first half as their offense struggled. Philadelphia shot 13 for 38 from the field, including 2 for 18 behind the 3-point line. JAZZ 103, GRIZZLIES 94 MEMPHIS, Tenn. (AP) — Bojan Bogdanovic scored 16 of his 33 points in the fourth quarter, helping Utah pull away from Memphis. Bogdanovic matched his season-high scoring mark, going 12 of 20 from the field, including 4 of 8 from 3-point range as Utah snapped a two-game losing streak. Donovan Mitchell added 20 points, and Rudy Gobert had 13 points, 13 rebounds and a pair of blocks. Jonas Valanciunas led Memphis with 22 points and 17 rebounds, and Brandon Clarke scored 13 points on 5-of-6 shooting. The Grizzlies have lost six straight. PACERS 105, HAWKS 104, OT INDIANAPOLIS (AP) — Jeremy Lamb scored 20 points, T.J. Warren hit a go-ahead 3-pointer and Indiana outlasted Trae Young and Atlanta in overtime. Young matched his career high with 49 points in the Hawks’ ninth straight loss. He was 16 of 28 from the field, hitting 8 of 15 from 3-point range. Lamb got the Pacers started in overtime with a 20-foot jumper and he fed Myles Turner for a 3-pointer. Warren made his only 3-pointer of the game with 1:12 remaining to push the Pacers to their fifth consecutive victory. Turner and Domantas Sabonis each scored 17 points, and Warren and Malcomb Brogdon had 16 apiece. DeAndre’ Bembry and Alex Len added 15 points each for Atlanta. THUNDER 109, PELICANS 104 OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) — Dennis Schroder scored 25 points, including 12 in the fourth quarter, and had seven assists to help Oklahoma City beat New Orleans. Abdel Nader scored 19 points and Danilo Gallinari had 17 for Oklahoma City (7-11), which had been 1-4 in its previous five games. Steven Adams added 14 points and 12 rebounds for the Thunder, including the final four points in the last minute. Brandon Ingram scored 26 points and had eight rebounds to lead New Orleans (6-13), which lost its fourth straight. J.J. Redick added 16 points for the Pelicans but missed two 3-point attempts in the final 10 seconds. New Orleans had seven players score in double digits. MAVERICKS 120, SUNS 113 PHOENIX (AP) — Luka Doncic tied a career high with 42 points, Tim Hardaway Jr. added 26 and Dallas beat Phoenix. Doncic just missed a triple-double with 11 assists and nine rebounds. Hardaway shot 6 of 9 from 3-point range to help offset a quiet night from Kristaps Porzingis, who finished with two points. The teams entered the final quarter tied at 89. The Mavericks went on an 8-0 run midway through the fourth to take a 104-97 lead and never trailed again. Phoenix has lost six of its last seven games. Kelly Oubre Jr. led the Suns with 22 points and 10 rebounds, and Ricky Rubio added 21 points and nine assists. LAKERS 125, WIZARDS 103 LOS ANGELES (AP) — Anthony Davis had 26 points and 13 rebounds, and LeBron James had 23 points and 11 assists before both superstars took the fourth quarter off in Los Angeles’ 10th consecutive victory. Quinn Cook scored 17 points and JaVale McGee had 15 points and 11 rebounds for the steamrolling Lakers, who have won 17 of 18 to soar to the top of the overall NBA standings. Los Angeles went 14-1 in November, posting the most victories in a month for this 16-time champion franchise since March 2000. The up-tempo Wizards have been one of the NBA’s worst defensive teams this season, and the Lakers’ dynamic offense was far too much for them. Bradley Beal had 18 points and nine assists for the Wizards, who have lost three of four. Washington got off to a solid start and had several good stretches against the Lakers, but committed 19 turnovers and lost for the second time in three stops on a four-game West Coast road trip. TRAIL BLAZERS 107, BULLS 103 PORTLAND, Ore. (AP) — Carmelo Anthony had 23 points and 11 rebounds and Portland downed Chicago for its second victory over the Bulls this week. Damian Lillard added 28 points for the Blazers, who have won three straight after four consecutive losses. Hassan Whiteside had eight points, 15 rebounds and a franchise-record 10 blocks for Portland. Zach LaVine finished with 28 for the slumping Bulls, who have lost seven of their last nine games......»»

Love at peace, not worried about trade chatter

By Tim Reynolds, Associated Press Kevin Love knows change could be coming. A couple of years ago, uncertainty might have been something that stressed him out, triggered the sorts of feelings like the ones that manifested themselves in the form of an in-game panic attack in 2017, rendered him unable to compete as efficiently as he wanted. Not this time. Even though he has three full years and about $90 million left on his contract after this season, it’s no secret that Love could be traded by the Cleveland Cavaliers. Plenty of teams even make sense for such a move — Portland, Dallas, Denver, Miami among others. But going public with the details of his panic attack — and his ongoing involvement in the conversation about the need to take care of mental health — has not left Love feeling vulnerable. He’s more at peace than anything else, and that’s why the rumors that are out there aren’t gnawing at him. “I’m just going to let the chips fall,” Love said. “I know that this is a young team. I think I can help them. I’m going to do right by Cleveland, the organization. This is a league where teams want to rebuild, teams want to go young but certain teams are looking for a piece, a guy who’s played in the finals, a guy who has playoff experience. I don’t know what’s going to happen, but I think it definitely lessens the burden and the anxiety.” Cleveland is 5-12 and Love missed Monday’s (Tuesday, PHL time) game against Brooklyn with back issues. Now in his 11th season, the five-time All-Star can still play — he’s averaging 17.9 points and 11.8 rebounds, is a 36% shooter from 3-point range and won a ring with the Cavs in 2016. Even with him, the Cavs are likely a long shot for a playoff spot in the East. But Love insists that he isn’t forcing a change. “I’ve been committed to Cleveland since Day 1,” Love said. “I know it’s been a little shaky at some points. It’s been really great at some points. But now I’ve found some semblance of balance in my life, not only on the court but away from it.” Love also doesn’t shy away from the mental health questions. Players like Love and DeMar DeRozan helped bring the conversation into the NBA mainstream by opening up about their own private and personal issues. “I kind of played all my cards and spoke my truth,” Love said. “I just feel like there’s not a lot out there that could really hurt me. I feel like, not only for other people but selfishly for myself, it’s been very therapeutic.” HISTORY LESSON The Spurs are in trouble. Monday’s (Tuesday, PHL time) loss to the Lakers dropped San Antonio to 6-12, and seeing that is all anyone would probably need to realize that the Spurs’ record-tying 22-year streak of postseason appearances is in major jeopardy. But the numbers really hammer the point home. Over the last 14 seasons, not including this one, there have been 103 instances of teams starting 6-12 or worse. Of those, only four have made the postseason — and none of those four came from the Western Conference. And the last time the Spurs were under the .500 mark 18 games into a season was 1995-96, when they started 3-15. That’s the point where they fired Bob Hill for a guy named Gregg Popovich. “They’re going to be OK,” said Charlotte coach James Borrego, a former longtime Spurs assistant, who crossed paths with Popovich in Washington recently. “At the end of the day, he’s coaching his team, I’m coaching my team. I know what they’re going through. But they’ve been in this territory before. I don’t know if they’ve lost as much as they’ve lost this early, but they’ll bounce back. There’s high character there. They know what they’re doing.” The last West team to start 6-12 or worse and get into the playoffs was the 2004-05 Memphis Grizzlies, who began 5-11, went through two different coaches before bringing in Mike Fratello. He fashioned a 40-26 finish, the Grizzlies sneaked into the playoffs at 45-37 and as the eighth seed. They got swept in the first round. The NBA champions that year? San Antonio. KEMBA’S NECK Boston guard Kemba Walker took a scary hit last week when he collided with teammate Semi Ojeleye during the Celtics’ game at Denver. The way Walker fell, and how he had to leave the game on a stretcher, understandably raised plenty of concern. He was diagnosed with a sprained neck, which was probably about the best possible outcome given how bad the play looked in real time. Perhaps overlooked is this: The sprain is Walker’s second neck issue in less than three months. He played some games for USA Basketball at the FIBA World Cup in China in September while dealing with neck pain, which intensified to the point that he sat out the Americans’ finale there — the seventh-place game in Beijing against Poland. MIGHTY MAVS With MVP candidate Luka Doncic leading the way, Dallas is flying. The Mavericks have scored 137 points or more in each of their last three games. Only two teams in league history have gone on longer such streaks — Denver in November 1988 and Portland in November 1990, both of those being four-game runs. The Mavs have reached the 125-point mark five times already this season. That matches their total from all of last season. THE WEEK AHEAD A game to watch each day in the coming week: (PHL times listed) Wednesday, L.A. Clippers at Dallas: Doncic is rolling right now. Here comes a very big test. Thursday, L.A. Lakers at New Orleans: Welcome back to New Orleans, Anthony Davis. Friday, Happy Thanksgiving: It’s one of the days the NBA has no games on the schedule. Saturday, Boston at Brooklyn: A noon start time. Could it be Kyrie Irving versus the Celtics? Sunday, Charlotte at Milwaukee: For some reason, few seem to be talking about the Bucks. Next Monday, Memphis at Minnesota: Through Monday (Tuesday, PHL time), Grizzlies rookie Ja Morant averaged 19 ppg. Next Tuesday, Utah at Philadelphia: A matchup of really good teams that usually put defense first......»»

Antetokounmpo scores 50, Bucks beat Jazz 122-118

By Jim Hoehn, Associated Press MILWAUKEE (AP) — Giannis Antetokounmpo scored a season-high 50 points and grabbed 14 rebounds for his 17th consecutive double-double to help the Milwaukee Bucks rally in the second half for their eighth consecutive victory, 122-118 over the Utah Jazz on Monday night (Tuesday, PHL time). Milwaukee led 120-113 with 1:24 left, but Bojan Bogdanovic countered with a 3-pointer and Donovan Mitchell followed with a layup to make 120-118 with 43 seconds left. The Bucks missed on their next possession, but Brook Lopez blocked Mitchell's driving layup attempt with 4.4 seconds remaining. Wesley Matthews added 19 points and Eric Bledsoe 13 for the Bucks, whose last loss was at Utah on Nov. 8 (Nov. 9, PHL time). Bogdanovic had 24 points and Mitchell 20 for the Jazz, who were 21 of 45 on 3-pointers. Antetokounmpo's streak of double-doubles is the longest to open a season since Bill Walton opened with 34 straight in 1976-77. Milwaukee trailed 57-48 at the half, going just 3 of 17 from 3-point range, but pulled even with a 10-0 run midway through the third quarter. Antetokounmpo’s 3-pointer from the top of the key tied it at 74 with 5:28 left in the period. The Jazz used a 10-0 run early in the second quarter to go in front 35-25. Milwaukee missed seven consecutive shots during that span, including 0-for-5 from beyond the arc. Utah was aided by a six-point swing midway through the second quarter. Bledsoe’s short pull-up jumper from the right baseline was negated when he was called for an offensive foul for jumping back into Bogdanovic. The Bucks challenged, but the call was upheld, and Milwaukee coach Mike Budenholzer then was called for a technical. Bogdanovic made the free throw and then drilled a 3-pointer on the ensuing possession to put Utah up 39-29. TIP-INS Jazz: Center Rudy Gobert missed his second consecutive game with a left ankle sprain. Bucks: Forward Khris Middleton, who missed the previous six games with a left thigh contusion, is getting closer to returning. Middleton has had some contact and played 5-on-5 Monday (Tuesday, PHL time). “I think I’m safe to say I think he’s for sure on timeline, if not ahead, so that’s a huge positive,” Budenholzer said. … Guard George Hill was out with back soreness. UP NEXT Jazz: At Indiana on Wednesday (Thursday, PHL time). Bucks: Host Atlanta on Wednesday (Thursday, PHL time)......»»

Dinwiddie scores 30, leads Nets over Knicks 103-101

By Brian Mahoney, Associated Press NEW YORK (AP) — Spencer Dinwiddie scored 30 points in another strong start in place of the injured Kyrie Irving and the Brooklyn Nets beat the New York Knicks 103-101 on Sunday (Monday, PHL time) for their season-high third straight victory. Irving continues to rest an injured right shoulder, and Dinwiddie is making sure they get by without him, scoring 20 or more points in a career-best five straight games after stepping into the starting lineup. He was 13 of 14 from the foul line, where the Nets had a whopping 27-9 advantage in makes. Jarrett Allen had 18 points and 10 rebounds for the Nets, and Taurean Prince added 14 points, 11 rebounds and five assists. Joe Harris scored 13 points, with four coming after the Knicks had cut it to one with 1:20 remaining. Marcus Morris scored 26 points for the Knicks, who lost their third straight. They played without rookie RJ Barrett. He was scratched after feeling sick before the game. The Nets have ruled out Irving for at least two more games, which would have included his return to Boston on Wednesday (Thursday, PHL time). But they have won four of five to even their record at 8-8. The Nets opened a 29-15 lead, but struggled when Dinwiddie and Allen went to the bench and let the Knicks quickly close the gap. It was down to 52-46 by halftime and tied in the third quarter, before Brooklyn pulled away again to open a 10-point lead entering the fourth. New York cut it to one after back-to-back 3s by Morris and another by Wayne Ellington, but Harris scored on a drive and later added a pair of free throws. TIP-INS Nets: Coach Kenny Atkinson said Irving wouldn’t travel with the team to Cleveland on Monday (Tuesday, PHL time), but wasn’t sure yet about Wednesday (Thursday, PHL time) to Boston. The Cavaliers and Celtics were Irving’s first two NBA homes. ... It was the most points Dinwiddie has scored in 12 games against the Knicks. Knicks: Mitchell Robinson was called for a sixth foul with 4:54 remaining, but David Fizdale challenged the call and it was overturned, allowing Robinson to stay on the floor. Not for long: He then picked up the sixth 42 seconds later and was given a technical foul after saying something to a referee on his way off the floor. ... Morris has scored 20 or more in four straight and six of his last seven games. KNOX’S CHANCE Kevin Knox II had five points starting in place of Barrett. He not only hadn’t started this season, but his minutes off the bench had been dwindling. He had been limited to 10 or fewer in the last two games, with Fizdale seeking a more consistent defensive effort from the 2018 lottery pick. So he was hoping to make the most of his opportunity Sunday (Monday, PHL time), but picked up his fourth foul less than four minutes into the second half. “Like I say you’ve got to be ready when your name gets called,” Knox said. “My dad used to always tell me growing up: You’re an ankle sprain away from that time.” MORE NOISE The sound around the Nets has changed — on and off the court — since the recent signing of Iman Shumpert, who began his career with the Knicks, won a title with Cleveland and has done some rap music. “I just see Theo (Pinson), DeAndre (Jordan), the communication is better because he talks a ton and his aggressiveness, he’s pushing the other guys,” Atkinson said. “And then our music has definitely improved in the locker room. We’ve taken a step up in our music selection. Obviously, he’s pretty sophisticated there.” UP NEXT Nets: Visit Cleveland on Monday (Tuesday, PHL time). Knicks: Visit Toronto on Wednesday (Thursday, PHL time)......»»

Spurs losing streak puts playoff run at risk

By Michael C. Wright, NBA.com The number 22 became pertinent to the plight of the San Antonio Spurs after they lost their seventh straight Wednesday (Thursday, PHL time), falling 138-132 to the Washington Wizards. The club’s current seven-game freefall matches its longest in 22 years, dating back to Gregg Popovich’s first season as head coach, when the Spurs suffered through skids of seven and eight games. Perhaps most alarming is that San Antonio’s NBA-record tying run of 22-straight postseason appearances might now be in jeopardy of ending in the ultra-competitive Western Conference. “It’s extremely frustrating, especially being on this losing streak,” said DeMar DeRozan, who led the Spurs with 31 points as one of the team’s eight double-figures scorers. “It sucks to lose. On the streak that we are on, every single game that we have lost has felt worse than the last one.” The Spurs certainly worked behind the scenes to prevent this outcome. Seeking an offensive spark after countless slow starts through the first 15 games, Popovich shook up the starting lineup Wednesday (Thursday, PHL time), opting for veteran reserve Patty Mills at point guard over Dejounte Murray, in addition to inserting Jakob Poeltl with the first team. The move netted a quick return, as San Antonio scored a season-high 69 points in the first half to go into intermission ahead six points. DeRozan and Bryn Forbes combined for 25 points on 8-of-13 shooting. “You know, we started out better. That’s what we wanted to do,” Popovich said. “Bad third quarter. All in all, if you score 132 points, you should probably have a pretty good chance to win a game. The bad news is if you give up 138, you’re probably not gonna [win]. I’m just a really smart guy. Yeah, I’m figuring that’s logical, right? You know, [giving up] 138 [points], it’s probably going to be tough to win that game.” Popovich finished those remarks and took only one question. He, like the rest of the Spurs, continues to search for answers. Washington inflicted most of its damage in the third quarter, thanks to 21 points from Bradley Beal, who produced his fourth-consecutive game with 30-plus points (33), the longest such streak of his career. The Wizards outscored San Antonio 38-29 in the third quarter, hitting a blistering 61.5% from the floor and 83.3% from deep (5-of-6). Beal shot 3-of-9 in the first half before catching fire in the third quarter. “A guy like that, I think he had like six points coming out of halftime,” DeRozan said. “A guy like that, you’ve got to expect him to turn it up, even if he misses shots.” Added Mills: “No matter what he shoots in the first half, you know he is going to come out smoking in the second half, and that’s is what he did.” He wasn’t the only one. Isaiah Thomas, Ish Smith and Moritz Wagner each knocked down 3-of-4 from 3-point range, while former Spur Davis Bertans hit 4-of-7. Troy Brown Jr. and Thomas Bryant also drained the only 3-pointers they attempted. The Wizards would finish the game shooting 60% from behind the arc, which ranks as their best percentage from range of the season, not to mention the highest percentage in team history in a game in which they launched 30 or more attempts from deep. Washington’s 138 points ranks as the most against the Spurs in Wizards' history. San Antonio’s latest setback marks the second consecutive loss in its current four-game road trip with matchups on the horizon Friday (Saturday, PHL time) at Philadelphia, followed by a Saturday (Sunday, PHL time) date with the New York Knicks at Madison Square Garden. The competition only intensifies when the Spurs return to the AT&T Center on Monday to host the Los Angeles Lakers, which boast the league’s best record (12-2). The concern now is whether San Antonio has dug itself into an insurmountable hole that threatens to swallow up prospects for a 23rd-consecutive postseason berth. “I don’t look at it that way,” DeRozan said. “It’s a long season. We are worried about now. It’s not like we are 50 or 60 games in. It’s still early. Just as we are on this bad streak, we can start a positive streak as well.” Michael C.

Popovich was ejected after walking onto the court to berate official Jason Goldenberg over a non-call. Popovich calmly walked off the court following his first ejection of the season. The Spurs responded with Duncan and fellow assistants Becky Hammon and Will Hardy coaching by committee, but it was Duncan calling the plays and screaming out instruction. Damian Lillard added 22 points and Hassan Whiteside had 21 for Portland. LaMarcus Aldridge had 30 points and 13 rebounds Spurs. They’ve lost five straight. BUCKS 102, PACERS 83 INDIANAPOLIS (AP) — Giannis Antetokounmpo had 26 points, 13 rebounds and six assists and Milwaukee forced Indiana into its worst shooting performance of the season.

NETS 117, BULLS 111 CHICAGO (AP) — Spencer Dinwiddie scored 24 points and Brooklyn beat Chicago without All-Star guard Kyrie Irving to snap a three-game losing streak. Irving entered Saturday (Sunday, PHL time) sixth in the NBA with 28.5 points per game but sat with a right shoulder injury. The short-handed Nets are also without Caris LeVert, who’s recovering from right thumb surgery. Zach LaVine scored 36 points for Chicago.
