Draymond Green benched by Warriors after Kevin Durant spat

Golden State Warriors star Draymond Green was handed a one-game suspension by the team on Tuesday following a bust-up with Kevin Durant, the team said. A statement from the NBA champions said Green had been issued with the sanction for "conduct detrimental to the team." The suspension rules Green out of the Warriors line-up for their game later Tuesday against the Atlanta Hawks. During Monday's overtime defeat to the Los Angeles Clippers, Green was seen in a heated exchange with Durant following the end of the fourth quarter. Durant was visibly annoyed after Green kept the ball with the final possession of the game rather than pass to the former NBA MVP to give him a po...Keep on reading: Draymond Green benched by Warriors after Kevin Durant spat.....»»

Clippers snap home skid against Warriors with 121-116 OT win

By Beth Harris, Associated Press LOS ANGELES (AP) — Lou Williams scored 10 of his 25 points in overtime after the Clippers blew a 14-point lead in the fourth quarter, and Los Angeles hung on Monday night (Tuesday, PHL time) to beat the Golden State Warriors at home for the first time in nearly four years, 121-116. Williams rallied after missing shots in the closing minutes of regulation, when the Warriors ran off 11 straight points to force overtime tied at 106-all. Montrezl Harrell added 23 points off the bench and rookie Shai Gilgeous-Alexander had 18. The Clippers snapped a seven-game skid against the Warriors at Staples Center, where they last won on Dec. 25, 2014. Kevin Durant had 33 points, 11 rebounds and 10 assists for the Warriors before fouling out with 3:46 left in the extra session. Klay Thompson added 31 points, but was just 5-of-16 on three-pointers on a night without injured fellow Splash Brother Stephen Curry. Golden State lost for just the third time in 14 games. The starless Clippers improved to 6-1 at home. Thompson's three-pointer tied it 116-all in overtime, interrupting Williams' run of 10 straight points for the Clippers. Down 106-95, the Warriors closed regulation on an 11-0 run, with Thompson scoring their last eight points. His second three-pointer in the spurt tied it at 106. The Clippers crashed the boards — every player grabbed at least one — and they dominated in the paint, 62-36. Williams' three-pointer gave Los Angeles its largest lead of 101-87. They didn't go up by double digits until Harrell's basket to open the fourth. The Clippers shot 60 percent and led 64-61 at halftime. They controlled the boards, 23-13, and owned a 30-18 edge in the paint. Durant scored 21 points and had three fouls in the half for the Warriors. TIP-INS Warriors: They fell to 39-60 in regular-season games without Curry (left groin strain), who missed his second straight game. ... F Draymond Green returned to the lineup after sitting out two games with a right foot-toe sprain. ... G Shaun Livingston was back after being out seven games with right foot soreness. ... They haven't left California during a seven-game stretch that concludes Tuesday (Wednesday, PHL time). Clippers: Hall of Famer Bill Russell sat courtside with owner Steve Ballmer. UP NEXT Warriors: Host Atlanta on Tuesday (Wednesday, PHL time) in the second game of a back-to-back, their third of the season.

PVL: Perlas Spikers eye bounce back win, semis seat

After a shocking loss the last time out, BanKo marches back into action hoping to get back on the winning track and secure a spot in the Premier Volleyball League Season 2 Open Conference Final Four. The Perlas Spikers take on a desperate Pocari Sweat-Air Force side on Wednesday at the FilOil Flying V Centre in San Juan. Opening serve is at 4:00 p.m. and will air live on LIGA SkyCable Channel 86, LIGA HD SkyCable Channel 183 and via livestream. BanKo saw its three-game winning streak snapped by PetroGazz in a disappointing 11-25, 23-25, 18-25 defeat just a day after the Perlas Spikers scored a dominating sweep of semis-bound Ateneo-Motolite. BanKo holds an 8-3 win-loss record in third place behind the Lady Eagles (10-3) and Creamline (8-2) and are already secured of at least a playoff for a semis spot. But the Perlas Spikers remain wary of the dangerous Lady Warriors, who nipped them in five sets in their first meeting in Baliwag, Bulacan. Pocari Sweat is in desperate need of wins in their remaining three games to keep its semis hopes alive. The Lady Warriors are outside of the top four, holding a 5-6 mark, a game and a half away from fourth running PetroGazz. Pocari Sweat despite the gallant effort put up by Myla Pablo, Jeanette Panaga, Del Palomata and Iari Yongco fell short in their last outing at the hands of the Alyssa Valdez-led Cool Smashers, 25-23, 21-25, 20-25, 25-22, 9-15, in Legazpi City last Saturday.   --- Follow this writer on Twitter, @fromtheriles.....»»

National University's campaign in the UAAP Season 81 men's basketball tournament is already down in the dumps having lost its 10th game in 13 outings, but there was one shining silver line amid all that misery.

With the game tied at 57 following a JB Sajonia jumper from 15 feet, NS-NU held off a furious run by the Baby Tams, as Bullpup Terrence Fortea scored six straight points to keep their opponents at bay.  FEU-Diliman's RJ Abarrientos cut the lead to as close as four, 61-65, but NS-NU answered emphatically with the game-deciding 16-3 run, capped off by Harold Alarcon's fastbreak layup. "Medyo nag-start out ng maganda yung defense namin. Na-contain namin yung FEU noong first half. Noong bandang gitna ng third quarter, medyo bumaba na naman. Siguro we have to be more consistent," NS-NU Bullpups head coach Goldwin Monteverde told ABS-CBN Sports.

Abarrientos top scored for the Baby Tamaraws with 15, while Ron Tolentino added 14. Meanwhile, in the first game, the De La Salle-Santiago Zobel Junior Archers drew their first win of the season in a comeback win against the UE Junior Red Warriors, 66-56. Game tied at 49 in the early goings of the fourth quarter, DLS-Zobel wrestled away the game from UE through a 15-4 run to lead 64-53. Henrie Subido, brother of UST Growling Tiger Renzo led the way with 19 points. Lance Jomalesa, a key cog in the game-sealing run added 17 markers of his own. For UE, Shane Dichoso paced their offese with 20 points and six rebounds, but coughed the ball nine times. Big man Jesse Sullano meanwhile had a double-double performance of 11 points and 10 rebounds.

UAAP Women s Basketball: Clare Castro leads FEU to Final Four, NU remains perfect

Anchored by Clare Castro's all-around brilliance, the Far Eastern University clinched a Final Four berth after an 80-66 win over the University of the Philippines, Saturday at the Araneta Coliseum. The Lady Tamaraws invested a 12-point lead after the first half but the Lady Maroons tried to fight back.

From sitting out early in their last game versus University of the East due to foul trouble, Castro regained her footing this game with 21 points and 10 rebounds. She was supported by Fatima Quiapo with 15 points, nine rebounds, and five assists.
