Lin lifts Charlotte over Spurs in NBA

first_img TIGHT RACE CHARLOTTE, North Carolina (AP): Jeremy Lin scored 15 of his 29 points in the fourth quarter as Charlotte overcame a 23-point deficit to snap San Antonio’s six-game winning streak, winning 91-88. Lin was 11 of 18 from the field and hit all four three-point attempts, including three in the fourth quarter. Courtney Lee had 17 points, Nicolas Batum added 15, and Cody Zeller grabbed 14 rebounds for the Hornets, who bounced back from a disappointing loss to the Denver Nuggets on Saturday night. The Spurs had two chances to tie it at the end of regulation, but Patty Mills and Danny Green both missed three-point attempts. In Cleveland, LeBron James scored 33 points and had his 41st career triple-double as the Cavaliers clinched their second straight Central Division title with a comfortable 124-91 victory over Denver. James added 11 rebounds and 11 assists before checking out with 6:02 left to a thunderous ovation. He scored 17 in the first quarter, helping the Cavs build a 19-point lead and erase the memory of an embarrassing loss on Saturday in Miami. The Nuggets fought back and briefly led before the Cavs regrouped, scored 68 after half-time to notch their 50th win. Will Barton scored 27 for the Nuggets. Andre Drummond’s tip-in with two seconds remaining lifted Detroit over Milwaukee, 92-91. The Pistons, who are in a tight race for the final play-off spot in the Eastern Conference, came out inexplicably flat and trailed by 17 points in the first half. They were down 13 in the third quarter before chipping away at Milwaukee’s lead in the fourth. Drummond was outplayed badly early on by Greg Monroe, but when Kentavious Caldwell-Pope missed from the perimeter in the final seconds, Drummond was able to tip the ball in. Draymond Green had 24 points, nine rebounds and six assists to help Golden State narrowly avoid their first two-game skid in nearly a year with a 109-104 victory at Minnesota. Klay Thompson scored 17 points and hit all five of his three-pointers, and the Warriors (63-7) overcame a second straight poor shooting night from Stephen Curry. He missed 11 of his 17 shots, including seven of his nine three-pointers, but still had 19 points, 11 assists and seven rebounds.last_img read more

I mean, he’s sat out a lot of games.”Payton said his goal was to try to get the Pelicans to “play as fast as possible, try to get the ball out quick.”“I think we got a lot of good possessions tonight,” he added. “We’ve just got to keep that up.”While Payton’s stat line was hardly a gaudy one, his teammates gushed over his influence on the game.“He’s a great point guard,” said Darius Miller, who had 21 points. “He came out and he helped, and he’s going to continue to do so throughout the rest of the year.”Added Holiday: “He pushes the pace. He gets to the basket. I don’t think he finished as well as he wanted to, but to be able to get there and make plays out of that was huge for us.”“What he brings to the team, to the table, is so much — getting to the paint, putting pressure on guys” defensively, Holiday added.Payton declined to address whether the Pelicans’ high winning percentage when he plays is coincidence or not. But he expressed confidence that New Orleans, which at 17-21 sits four games out of a Western Conference playoff spot, could climb back into the postseason picture.“Definitely a small sample. We’ve just got to figure out a way to get it done,” Payton said. “Each game is its own entity.” LATEST STORIES Japeth Aguilar embraces role, gets rewarded with Finals MVP plum Nadine Lustre’s phone stolen in Brazil Gretchen Barretto’s daughter Dominique graduates magna cum laude from California collegecenter_img WATCH: Texas football mascot topples barricade, charges Georgia bulldog Ginebra beats Meralco again to capture PBA Governors’ Cup title View comments Pelicans coach Alvin Gentry took a conservative approach to Payton’s return, playing him about six minutes per quarter against the Timberwolves.
