Jokic scores career-high 30, Nuggets beat Magic

em>By Pat Graham, Associated Press /em> DENVER (AP) — Nikola Jokic scored a career-high 30 points, Emmanuel Mudiay dished out a career-best 13 assists and the Denver Nuggets followed up their 'home' win in London with another at the Pepsi Center, beating the Orlando Magic 125-112 on Monday (Tuesday, PHL time). Jokic also grabbed 11 rebounds and Kenneth Faried scored 20 points for the Nuggets, who certainly packed their surging offense with them when they returned home from London. They routed Indiana 140-112 last Thursday (Friday, PHL time) in England and remained on that sort of shooting streak, hitting a season-high 58.4 percent from the floor. They also had 33 assists. Elfrid Payton scored 20 points and had 12 assists as the Magic fell to 1-4 on their current six-game trip. Denver arrived home from London late on Friday (Saturday, PHL time), took Saturday off (Sunday, PHL time) and then went through an intense practice Sunday (Monday, PHL time) designed to shake any sort of lingering jet lag. 'Now, it's mental,' Nuggets coach Michael Malone said before the game. 'Can you push all that tiredness and fatigue and jet lag out of you mind?' They certain did. Up 69-63 early in the third quarter, the Nuggets pulled away with a 16-2 run. The Magic cut into a 22-point deficit, but Faried put the game way with an emphatic dunk with 1:28 remaining. The officials operated with a two-person crew after Nick Buchert was a late scratch for personal reasons. It really didn't seem to be an issue for Tom Washington and Justin VanDuyne, who were never really out of position. strong>TIP-INS /strong> em> strong>Magic: /strong> /em> G/F Evan Fournier was out with a bruised right heel.

That has to do with Denver's sub-.500 record and not his play. 'Unless you're winning, I don't think you're going to be in the conversation,' Malone said. 'With that being said, everybody in the NBA knows Nikola and what he brings to the table.

Seahawks suffer yet another road divisional playoff loss

CHARLES ODUM, AP Sports Writer br /> ATLANTA (AP) — Another road divisional round playoff loss didn't shake Russell Wilson's confidence the Seahawks can win away from Seattle at this stage of the postseason. The list of road postseason losses is daunting, however. Seattle's 36-20 loss at Atlanta on Saturday marked the second straight year the Seahawks' season ended with a road divisional round playoff loss, following last year's loss at Carolina. The Seahawks had home-field advantage through the NFC playoffs while making two straight Super Bowl appearances in the 2013 and 2014 seasons. They lost road divisional playoff games in the 2012 and 2010 seasons, to Atlanta and Chicago, respectively. 'I don't think you have to be at home,' Wilson said. 'I think you just have to find a way to win.' Wilson said he was reminded of the loss five years ago in Atlanta when he was a rookie. He said all the success he and the Seahawks have experienced since that loss is a good reason to remain confident — even in road playoff games. 'I think back to 2012, I was young and I was a rookie and I was being put in a position to play and a lot of people told me I couldn't do it,' Wilson said. 'Now for me I think about how far I've come, winning a Super Bowl, winning multiple playoff games, winning as many games as we have. Why would I doubt anything else when I think about what's ahead?' The Seahawks might have pulled off Saturday's road win over the Falcons if not for two key plays. Seattle appeared to be in excellent position to extend a 10-7 lead when Devin Hester returned a punt 80 yards to the Atlanta 7. Instead, a costly holding call against Kevin Pierre-Louis pushed the Seahawks all the way back to the Seattle 7. Cheap flag? Nope. Pierre-Louis conceded 'I was holding' on Atlanta's LaRoy Reynolds. 'I grabbed him a little bit so he wouldn't get down to Hester,' Pierre-Louis said. 'But the referee was able to see it. It cost us.' Two plays later, Wilson was tripped by backup right guard Rees Odhiambo and fell in the end zone for a safety. Hester, who played for the Falcons in 2014-15, said the play 'kind of put a dent in the momentum.' If so, it was a huge dent. Seahawks coach Pete Carroll called the penalty 'a huge turnaround. Just as obvious as you can get, a 70-something yard penalty was just ridiculously large play in the game.' Carroll said the safety 'wasn't the worst thing that happened.' The Falcons seized momentum, however, and scored 10 points on their next two drives to lead 19-10 at halftime. Wilson said the punt return wasn't the only game-changing play. His 58-yard completion to Paul Richardson to the Atlanta 22 with less than 3 minutes remaining was ruled no catch on a review. 'We believe if we had hit that, we score on the next play and the game is real close,' Wilson said. .....»»
