White, Aldridge lead Spurs past Grizzlies, 108-88

By Raul Dominguez, Associated Press SAN ANTONIO (AP) — Derrick White scored 19 points, LaMarcus Aldridge added 18 and the San Antonio Spurs overcame a sluggish start to beat Memphis 108-88 on Saturday night (Sunday, PHL time), handing the Grizzlies their fifth straight loss. San Antonio won for the 12th time in 15 games and is 4.5 games out of first in the Western Conference. Mike Conley had 21 points in 25 minutes for Memphis, which has dropped to 12th in the West. Jaren Jackson Jr. and Dillon Brooks, who added 15 points apiece, were the only other Grizzlies in double figures. The Grizzlies outscored the Spurs 20-11 to start the fourth quarter, trimming a 24-point lead. Memphis pulled within 95-86 with 5 minutes remaining on Brooks' third three-pointer, but San Antonio's starters reclaimed a double-digit lead. The Spurs had a slow start coming off a highly emotional victory Thursday (Friday, PHL time) over Toronto in Kawhi Leonard's return to San Antonio. The Spurs started the game 1-for-6 against the Grizzlies and did not collect their initial basket until more than two minutes into the game. San Antonio got going following a timeout by coach Gregg Popovich, outscoring Memphis 19-10 to end the first quarter and then outscoring by 18 in the second to take a 64-44 lead at the half. Everything seemed to go right for the Spurs after that. Aldridge shook his head and laughed in the first half after he banked in a fadeaway shot he threw up after nearly tumbling backwards after he was bumped by Marc Gasol. Jakob Poeltl ended up with a dunk in the second half for the Spurs after diving to push the ball forward after he lost the dribble. Davis Bertans dove for the loose ball and tossed it toward halfcourt, where Patty Mills scooped the ball backward and underhanded off one foot as he jumped out of bounds and Poeltl collected it in the lane for a dunk. TIP-INS Grizzlies: Justin Holiday scored two points in 20 minutes in his debut with Memphis after being acquired from Chicago in a trade Thursday (Friday, PHL time) for MarShon Brooks and Wayne Selden. . Conley was listed as probable with a sore left shoulder but was cleared to play before pregame workouts. . Gasol played after testing a sore left hamstring prior to the game. . The Grizzlies' season-low for the second quarter is 11 points, which they were held to against Houston on Dec. 15 (Dec. 16, PHL time). Spurs: DeMar DeRozan became the sixth San Antonio player with 900-plus points through 40 games. He has 902 points, which is the third-most of his career. . Aldridge's five assists in the first half were the most he's had in any half with the Spurs. His career high for a half is six in 2014 while with Portland. . The 20-point advantage entering the third was San Antonio's third-largest halftime lead this season. . The Spurs outscored the Grizzlies by 18 points in the second quarter, which is their largest point differential in the second. UP NEXT Grizzlies: At New Orleans on Monday night (Tuesday, PHL time). Spurs: At Detroit on Monday night (Tuesday, PHL time)......»»

HOUSTON (AP) — James Harden had 29 points and seven Rockets scored in double-figures as Houston used a big second-half run and snapped a three-game losing streak with a 111-104 victory over the Portland Trail Blazers on Tuesday night (Wednesday, PHL time). Clint Capela added 13 points and seven rebounds before fouling out with five minutes left, and Eric Gordon, who started in place of James Ennis, had 14 points for the Rockets, who shot 49 percent from the field. Houston's bench played a key role in a 24-6 first-half run that erased a 15-point deficit, and then led a charge in the second half. Gerald Green had 13 points, and Danuel House had 12 off the bench. Damian Lillard had 34 points, CJ McCollum scored 22 points and Jusuf Nurkic added 15 points and 10 rebounds for Portland, which shot 44 percent after starting the game by making seven of its first nine shots. Houston used a 25-5 run to end the third and start the fourth quarters, and opened a 100-83 lead on three-pointer by Harden with 6:48 left. House and Green each had five points in the run. The Blazers responded with a 14-2 run and cut the lead to 102-97 when Nurkic made a pair of free throws with three minutes left. After trading baskets, Houston pushed the lead to 107-99 on a free throw by Harden and two free throws by Chris Paul. After Lillard missed a layup, Paul hit two more free throws to push the lead back to 10 points with 1:38 left. Portland got no closer than eight the rest of the way. TIP-INS Trail Blazers: Al-Farouq Aminu had 10 points and 15 rebounds. . Portland shot 17-of-21 from the free throw line. . The Blazers shot 10-of-25 from three-point range. Rockets: Houston's bench outscored Portland's 37-13. Nene had 10 points. . Paul had 11 points. . The Rockets shot 18 of 27 from the free-throw line. . Coach Mike D'Antoni said Brandon Knight (knee) could see playing time early next week. . Ennis left the game with a strained right hamstring. CLEAN UP ON THE FLOOR PJ Tucker dove for a loose ball during the second quarter, landing in front of Houston Astros third baseman Alex Bregman and Astros owner Jim Crane, who were seated courtside, and splashing their drinks on them. Bregman and Crane were given towels to help dry off. UP NEXT Trail Blazers: Travels to Memphis on Wednesday (Thursday, PHL time). Rockets: Host the Lakers on Thursday (Friday, PHL time)......»»

Schmeichel, Poulsen lift Denmark over Peru 1-0 at World Cup

By BRETT MARTEL,  AP Sports Writer SARANSK, Russia (AP) — Kasper Schmeichel's slew of saves made Yussuf Poulsen's opportunistic second-half goal stand up in a 1-0 victory over Peru on Saturday at the World Cup. Poulsen squeezed his goal between charging Peru goalkeeper Pedro Gallese and the left post in the 59th minute after collecting a pass from midfielder Christian Eriksen. The victory gave Denmark a crucial advantage in Group C, in which France defeated Australia 2-1 earlier in the day. Appearing at the World Cup for the first time in 36 years, Peru had overwhelming fan support in the Mordovia Arena and the bulk of scoring chances, including a late first-half penalty shot that Christian Cueva sent sailing over the crossbar. The penalty was awarded after Gambian referee Bakary Gassama used the video assistant referee system to decide Poulsen had tripped Cueva in the penalty area. Peru striker Paolo Guerrero made his much anticipated appearance as a substitute with about 30 minutes to go and had two scoring chances, one on a header and one on a clever back-heel that rolled just wide. Peru finished with 17 attempts to Denmark's 10, and many of the team's shots were of the point-blank variety, forcing Schmeichel to dive or extend whatever limb he could in the ball's path. The lone scorer also helped out on the defensive end with a clearing header in the box on a cross over Schmeichel's head. That helped the keeper recover and leap to grab the ball as it came down with Peru players nearby looking to pounce. Later, Schmeichel's kick save denied Jefferson Farfan's 83rd-minute, hard drive from near the top of the penalty area. Schmeichel was also fortunate, and not only on Cueva's missed penalty kick. In the 56th minute, Edison Flores was wrong-footed by Andre Carrillo's tap-pass on the right side of the goal and he rolled a weak shot wide of a largely open net. Minutes later, Schmeichel extended his left hand to stop Flores' sizzling shot. Within the opening minutes of the match, Peru was pushing forward and nearly drew a penalty when Flores and Poulsen collided on the left side of the area, but Gassama waved play on. Gassama, however, used VAR to award a penalty after Cueva was tripped in the area by Poulsen. The first shot on goal came in the eighth minute, when Peru's Yoshimar Yotun sent one from outside the penalty area into the chest of Schmeichel. Peru nearly broke through in the 13th minute when Carrillo executed a step-over dribble to cut to his left on the edge of the penalty area and unleash a low, hard left-footer. Schmeichel dove to his right to bat the ball away. Denmark left back Andreas Christensen thwarted two more Peru threats before 20 minutes had elapsed, first with his well-timed slide tackle on Luis Advincula on the right edge of the area, and minutes later with a quick-reaction swing of his left foot to deflect Carrillo's low shot toward the right post. Again, Carrillo threatened in the 29th minute, but his hard, low shot was deflected wide by Simon Kjaer. The so-called Danish Dynamite had the better of possession but fewer scoring threats. Denmark did not get its first shot on goal until the 39th minute, when Eriksen drove a direct kick into a wall of defenders, and Lasse Schonne volleyed the rebound right at Gallese. Schonne's shot came within five minutes of his entrance into the game for Williams Kvist, who came off after a hard collision with a leaping Farfan as the two pursued a ball in the air......»»
