Westbrook’s late basket lifts Thunder past Nets

first_imgGlobe Business launches leading cloud-enabled and hardware-agnostic conferencing platform in PH Westbrook made a go-ahead layup with 3.3 seconds left to help the Thunder rally from a 15-point second-half deficit and beat the Nets 109-108 on Tuesday night.“They sat in the paint all game long,” Westbrook said. “I was just trying a way to get to the basket.”FEATURED STORIESSPORTSWATCH: Drones light up sky in final leg of SEA Games torch runSPORTSLillard, Anthony lead Blazers over ThunderSPORTSMalditas save PH from shutoutThe lead changed six times in the final 2:23. Brooklyn went ahead 108-107 on a driving layup by Spencer Dinwiddie with 7.8 seconds left, but Westbrook answered with his own. After three timeouts, Dinwiddie missed a 3-point attempt at the buzzer, with the Thunder’s Andre Roberson guarding him closely.Westbrook had 32 points and Paul George added 28 points and nine rebounds after being left off the NBA All-Star roster earlier in the day.

They were up 85-74 going into the fourth.The Thunder’s five fourth-quarter 3-pointers — including two each by backups Raymond Felton and Patrick Patterson — quickly closed that gap. Westbrook’s 16-foot jumper with 6:13 left put Oklahoma City up 97-96 — its first lead since the second quarter.ALL-STAR SNUBWestbrook, normally curt and brief with media after games, passionately defended George, saying it was “unbelievable” and “outrageous” that George didn’t join him as an All-Star reserve. George entered the game averaging 20.8 points per game and ranked second in the NBA with 2.16 steals per game.George was gracious when discussing the situation, saying it’s much tougher to make an All-Star team in the loaded Western Conference than it was in the Eastern Conference, when he was with the Indiana Pacers.“I wasn’t an All-Star to the voters or whoever that made the list,” George said. “Everybody that thought the same wasn’t an All-Star, apparently. Life goes on.”TIP-INSNets: Brooklyn has had 22 games decided by six points or fewer, the highest total in the NBA. … Dinwiddie, who hit a floater from 14 feet with 0.9 seconds left to give the Nets a 101-100 win at Detroit on Sunday, has made six baskets to tie or take the lead in the final minute of the fourth quarter or overtime this season, tied for the NBA lead.Thunder: Anthony scored 10 points and now is 30 away from becoming the 21st player to reach 25,000 career points.NEXT UPNets: Continue their five-game trip at Milwaukee on Friday night.Thunder: Host Washington — and former Thunder coach Scott Brooks — on Thursday night.

The Nets ended a two-game winning streak, matching their longest of the season.“We can talk about the last plays, but I do think we gave up 35 points in the fourth quarter and made a ton of mistakes,” Brooklyn coach Kenny Atkinson said. “I loved our competitive spirit all game, how we defended, but I thought in the fourth quarter we made some fundamental mistakes.”Oklahoma City rallied with stellar 3-point shooting in the fourth quarter, going 5 of 8 after making only 2 of 17 attempts from behind the arc.Brooklyn went 10 of 18 from 3-point range in the first half and outscored the Thunder 21-10 over the final seven minutes of the half to lead 59-47 at the break.

NLEX hikes win run to 3

first_img“This is a testament to the progress we have made,” Guiao said as the Road Warriors’ winning streak is now actually five games dating back to their final two games in the Commissioner’s Cup where the team made changes by trading for several players.Alas almost threw the game away by fouling Chris Tiu in a jump ball that resulted in two free throws for the Rain or Shine guard for a 110-108 lead with 6.3 seconds left.After Guiao called him out during the timeout for that “stupid” foul, Alas connected on a floating layup off Beau Belga to forge the second extension. He finished with a career-high 24 points and had 10 rebounds.In the second game, GlobalPort survived a strong challenge from Phoenix in the stretch to hammer out a 100-91 victory and barge into the win column.ADVERTISEMENT FEU Auditorium’s 70th year celebrated with FEU Theater Guild’s ‘The Dreamweavers’ The Road Warriors stayed unbeaten in the PBA Governors’ Cup after outlasting Guiao’s former team, Rain or Shine, 122-114, in double overtime as Kevin Alas redeemed himself from a “stupid mistake” that almost cost NLEX the game in the first extension at Smart Araneta Coliseum on Wednesday night.Alas hit the go-ahead layup with 2:51 left for 113-112, and then fed Larry Fonacier for the triple that wrapped it all up with 58.9 remaining as NLEX won a third straight game and grabbed the solo lead momentarily.FEATURED STORIESSPORTSSEA Games: Biñan football stadium stands out in preparedness, completionSPORTSPrivate companies step in to help SEA Games hostingSPORTSWin or don’t eat: the Philippines’ poverty-driven, world-beating pool stars“It’s an awkward feeling, beating that team,” Guiao said. “Sometimes, I still feel I’m the coach of that team.

Batsmen happy as 2nd India-NZ Test ends in draw

first_imgVirender Sehwag produced an entertaining innings after New Zealand’s Brendon McCullum snuffed out any chances of an India win with a career-best maiden double century on the fifth and final day of the second Test in Hyderabad on Tuesday.SCORECARDIndia were 68 for no loss, with Sehwag on 54 and Gambhir on 14, when stumps were drawn for the final time in the match as for the second time in the series the battle between the two rivals ended in a tame draw.The two teams now head to Nagpur for the third and final Test starting on Saturday.New Zealand set an improbable target of 326 in 30 overs after declaring their second innings at tea, at 448 for eight, with an overall lead of 326 runs at the Rajiv Gandhi International Stadium.Sehwag then displayed his pyrotechnics and in company of Gautam Gambhir entertained the crowd with his dazzling stroke-play before the two captains agreed to call it off.After a 96-run innings in his first essay, Sehwag hit six fours and a six during his breezy knock in his second attempt on Tuesday.Earlier McCullum (225), who was opening only for the second time in his career, became only the second New Zealander to post a double century on Indian soil, after Bert Sutcliffe’s 230 in Delhi way back in 1955.At tea the visitors, having stretched their lead to 326, were placed at 448 for the loss of eight wickets. Wicketkeeper Hopkins was unbeaten on 11, while giving him company was Brent Arnel, batting on one.During his monumental innings, McCullum was involved in one century and a half-century stand, besides the 125-run partnership for the opening wicket with Tim McIntosh on Monday.advertisementThe dashing Kiwi opener, who was dropped by Cheteshwar Pujara at forward short-leg on 148, smashed 22 boundaries and four sixes during his tenure at the crease that saw him record his sixth Test century, the last one coming against Australia in Wellington earlier in March this year.A couple of wickets in quick succession by S Sreesanth, including the one of McCullum, and Suresh Raina’s dismissal of Daniel Vettori 12 minutes after lunch, brought the crowds on their toes.But probably it came a bit too late for the hosts to give themselves a realistic chance of going for a win and taking a 1-0 lead in the series.With inputs from PTIlast_img read more
