Thompson hits first 10 from 3, Warriors beat Lakers 130-111

By Beth Harris, Associated Press LOS ANGELES (AP) — Klay Thompson set an NBA record by making his first 10 attempts from 3-point range, scoring 44 points as the Golden State Warriors beat the short-handed Los Angeles Lakers 130-111 on Monday night (Tuesday, PHL time) to match a season-high with their eighth consecutive victory. Thompson finished 10-of-11 from beyond the arc as the two-time defending champions won their seventh straight road game. The star guard had 23 points in the third quarter, connecting on seven three's as the Warriors stretched their lead to 36 points. He finally missed from deep late in the period. Kevin Durant added 20 points and Stephen Curry had 11 points and 12 assists, going 2-of-10 from three-point range for Golden State. Emblematic of his quiet offensive night, Curry came dribbling in alone for a fast-break dunk, but slipped and fell, drawing gasps from the crowd. He scrambled to his feet, got the ball back and put up an air ball. Ivica Zubac led Los Angeles with 18 points. Brandon Ingram added 17 and Kyle Kuzma had 16. The Lakers were without their primary ball-handlers and playmakers in LeBron James, Lonzo Ball and Rajon Rondo. They fell to 5-9 without James, whose left groin strain has forced him out for the longest stretch of his 16-year career. Coming off a split in two straight overtime games, the Lakers kept it close in the first half, trailing 65-55 at the break. But Thompson fired up a three-pointer — the first of Golden State's nine in the third — and the Warriors went on to outscore the Lakers 45-25 to lead 110-80 going into the fourth. Golden State's sharpshooting silenced the crowd and allowed the Warriors to sit four of their five starters in the fourth, leaving DeMarcus Cousins in for a bit until he also went to the bench. Cousins had eight points, nine rebounds, five assists and four fouls in his second game for the Warriors since being out nearly a year with a severe knee injury. The Warriors have made 141 three-pointers to 93 for opponents during their eight-game winning streak. TIP-INS Warriors: All 12 players scored. ... Their other eight-game winning streak this season was Oct. 22 to Nov. 5 (Oct. 23 to Nov. 6, PHL time). ... They evened the season series 1-1, having lost 127-101 on Christmas (Dec. 26, PHL time). Lakers: Coach Luke Walton hopes James is able to return this week when the Lakers have five straight games at Staples Center. ... Ball is out 4-to-6 weeks with a left ankle sprain. ... Rondo (right ring finger surgery) has played in contact practices but is still favoring his injured hand. ... Josh Hart had six points, one assist and four fouls starting in place of Ball. ... Jack Nicholson made a rare courtside appearance. Mahershala Ali, Snoop Dogg, James Franco, Floyd Mayweather and Manny Pacquiao were in the crowd. UP NEXT Warriors: At Washington on Thursday (Friday, PHL time) in the third of a four-game trip. Lakers: Host Minnesota on Thursday (Friday, PHL time)......»»

PBA: Kevin Alas sees improvement in NLEX return

Returning NLEX Road Warriors guard Kevin Alas sees that his team and even himself still need fine tuning as the action in the 2019 PBA Philippine Cup continues to unravel. Alas, who is playing in his first game since tearing his anterior cruciate ligament last March, came off the bench and contributed 12 points and 4 assists in 29 minutes of playing time. However, his side was not able to carve out a win against the gritty Rain or Shine Elasto Painters side, falling 96-87 at the Cuneta Astrodome Friday evening. “It felt good pero syempre I wanted the win sana kasi we've been doing well sa offseason. They were the better team, personally. But sa akin personally it felt good kasi 8-10 months ako nawala,” said Alas. The team also paraded new big man Poy Erram, who added 10 markers and 5 rebounds to the team. Though it may it may not be impressive numbers in Erram's debut for his new squad, the former Ateneo big man sees opportunity, as he stressed improvement of chemistry with one another. Alas also shared that he was almost sleepless in anticipation of his return, as it was comparable his feelings before his own pro debut some few years back. With his return to the squad, Alas knows he still has a lot to improve upon as he will only get better in time. “I felt comfortable naman kanina. Pero siguro yung hangin ko kulang pa kasi iba yung hangin na nakukuha mo sa practice iba eh so kanina I felt kulang na kulang pa yung hangin ko,” he shared.   Follow this writer on Twitter, @philipptionary. .....»»

Rain or Shine rides James Yap’s hot hand to frustrate NLEX

Rain or Shine rode on a vintage performance by James Yap to open its Philippine Cup campaign on a good note, thwarting NLEX, 96-87, Friday in the 2019 PBA Philippine Cup at Cuneta Astrodome. Yap turned back the clock, uncorking three straight long bombs to wrest the lead from the Road Warriors in the first half and finish with 20 points and three assists, leading the Elasto Painters in scoring for the first time since pushing them to a semifinals berth July last year.

Murray, Jokic lead Nuggets to 135-105 rout of Bulls

By Pat Graham, Associated PRess DENVER (AP) — Jamal Murray scored 22 of his 25 points in the third quarter, Nikola Jokic finished two rebounds shy of another triple-double and the Denver Nuggets cruised past Chicago 135-105 on Thursday night (Friday, PHL time) for their 12th straight home win over the Bulls. Chicago hasn't knocked off the Nuggets at the Pepsi Center since Feb. 8, 2006. The Bulls also remain winless in 2019, with their losing streak stretching to nine in a row. Jokic had 18 points and 11 assists as the Nuggets bounced back from a 142-111 drubbing Tuesday (Wednesday, PHL time) at the hands of Golden State in a matchup of the top two teams in the Western Conference. Lauri Markkanen scored 27 for a Chicago team that finished up a fruitless five-game trip. The Nuggets showed no residual effects from the lopsided loss to the Warriors, in which they allowed an NBA-record, 51-point first quarter. Denver picked up the defensive intensity from the start and limited the Bulls to 47 points at halftime. Denver led by as many as 40. Jokic did a little bit of everything, including a move where he went around the waist with the ball to avoid a defender and drew a foul while making the shot. That kicked up chants of "M-V-P!" The seven-footer from Serbia didn't have his best shooting night, though, missing several easy baskets in finishing 6-of-18 from the field. Bulls coach Jim Boylen took a "charge" late in the first quarter, when Torrey Craig fell on top of him after tumbling out of bounds. The ball was awarded to Chicago. TIP-INS Bulls: Rookie F Wendell Carter Jr. was ruled out with a sprained left thumb. He's day-to-day. ... G Zach LaVine was held to eight points, well below his average of 23.2. Nuggets: G Will Barton missed the game for personal reasons. ... G Gary Harris returned after missing five games with hamstring tightness and scored 14 points in 19 minutes as the Nuggets had seven players in double figures. ... Denver hit a season-high 20 three-pointers. KEEPING THEM FRESH Nuggets coach Michael Malone has been curtailing practices to keep his team fresh, especially in light of all their recent injuries. "I don't want to leave our fight in the gym and have nothing left in games," he said. STEPPING UP Boylen appreciated Kris Dunn taking accountability for his less-than-stellar play in a loss to the Los Angeles Lakers earlier in the week. Dunn had six points and five turnovers against the Lakers. "He took it on the chest that he's got to play better for us to be successful. I'm just proud of him," Boylen said. "What we're striving for is to play better basketball and to own the 'Bulls' across our chest." UP NEXT Bulls: Host Dwyane Wade and the Miami Heat on Saturday (Sunday, PHL time). Nuggets: Finish a four-game homestand Saturday (Sunday, PHL time) against Cleveland......»»

Antetokounmpo leads streaking Bucks past Grizzlies 111-101

By Clay Bailey, Associated Press MEMPHIS, Tenn. (AP) — Giannis Antetokounmpo had 27 points and 11 rebounds as the Milwaukee Bucks used a third-quarter outburst to capture their third straight win, 111-101 over the Memphis Grizzlies on Wednesday night (Thursday, PHL time). Eric Bledsoe added 16 points and D.J. Wilson scored 13 for the Bucks, who won for the 14th time in 17 games. Omri Casspi led the Grizzlies with 17 points. Marc Gasol, Mike Conley and JaMychal Green scored 14 points apiece for Memphis, which lost its ninth in the last 10. The Grizzlies took their only lead of the game at 59-58 early in the second half on a three-pointer by Gasol. The Bucks made sure any Memphis excitement was short-lived. Milwaukee ran off 19 straight points to extend its lead to 18. By that point, the Grizzlies returned to uninspired play as the Bucks outscored Memphis 41-28 in the quarter. Memphis committed eight turnovers in the third, leading to 20 points. The Bucks took an early lead thanks to anemic shooting by Memphis. The Grizzlies starters seemed lackadaisical and not up to the task of challenging one of the better teams in the NBA as Milwaukee stretched its lead to as many as 14 points. The Memphis reserves brought more energy and steadily chipped away at the Bucks advantage. Casspi and Green led the rally. But the Bucks used 15 points from Antetokounmpo to hold on for a 50-45 lead at the break. The third-quarter rally led to Milwaukee building the advantage to as many as 31 points in the fourth. TIP-INS Bucks: Milwaukee leads the series 23-22. . The Bucks lead the league in scoring differential at 10 points per game and have 23 double-digit victories this season. . Antetokounmpo recorded his 30th double-double of the season. . Memphis defeated the Bucks 116-113 on Nov. 14 (Nov. 15, PHL time). Milwaukee is now 5-0 facing teams that it lost to in its previous meeting. Grizzlies: Memphis played its only home game in a five-game stretch. .F/G Justin Holiday, obtained from the Chicago Bulls in a Jan. 4 (Jan. 5, PHL time) trade, started his first game for Memphis. . Memphis missed 10 of its first 11 shots in the game, part of the Grizzlies shooting 26 percent in the opening quarter. . The Bucks' 41 points in the third quarter was the most given up by Memphis in any period this season. UP NEXT Bucks: At Orlando to face the Magic on Saturday (Sunday, PHL time).
