Finney-Smith's late 3 helps Mavs to 116-115 win over Nuggets

7.1h12/7/2022 12:56 AM ET By PAT GRAHAM, AP Sports Writer DENVER

DENVER (AP) — Dorian Finney-Smith hit a go-ahead 3-pointer with 17.3 seconds remaining and the Dallas Mavericks rallied after squandering a late lead to beat the Denver Nuggets 116-115 on Tuesday night.

Nikola Jokic had a chance to tie the game with 12 seconds remaining, but missed the first of two free throws. Spencer Dinwiddie hit both free throws to help seal the win for the Mavericks.

Tim Hardaway Jr. scored a season-high 29 points and Luka Doncic recorded his 52nd career triple-double with 22 points, 12 assists and 10 rebounds.

The Mavericks hardly looked weary as they played the second game of a back-to-back. They beat the Western Conference-leading Phoenix Suns the night before.

Aaron Gordon had 27 points, while Jokic added 19 points, eight assists and eight rebounds for the Nuggets, who dropped their third straight game on a night when they committed 17 turnovers.

Dallas appeared to have the game well in hand after taking a 111-101 lead with just over 4 minutes remaining. But the Nuggets went on an 11-0 run and jumped in front on Bruce Brown's 3-pointer.

It set the stage for Finney-Smith, who finished with 19 points.

The Mavericks finished 27 of 31 from the free throw line. Hardaway missed both free throw attempts with 4.2 seconds remaining, setting up a desperation heave from Jamal Murray at the buzzer that missed the mark.

Nuggets guard Bones Hyland had a big bounce-back performance with 20 points after being benched last game for the second half. Coach Michael Malone said he chatted with Hyland and emphasized how big a role he plays on the second unit.

TIP-INS

Mavericks: The Mavericks are 2-3 in the second game of a back-to-back. ... Christian Wood had 14 points.

Nuggets: F Michael Porter Jr. (heel) missed a seventh straight game. ... F Jeff Green returned after missing seven games with a knee injury. He had seven points.

DISPERSING MINUTES

Mavericks coach Jason Kidd was asked about social media posts and fans who wonder why younger players such as Jaden Hardy don't receive more minutes.

Simple answer: not enough to go around.

“Maybe we should bring Luka up, and ask, does he want to play less? Or Spencer?” Kidd explained. "You just have to be patient. I know society isn’t patient or Twitter isn’t patient, because they want it now — fantasy leagues and all that. My job is to put those guys in a position to be successful. Right now, we’ve got a good thing going. ... Twitter isn’t the coach or the player.”

UP NEXT

Mavericks: Host Milwaukee on Friday night.

Nuggets: At Portland on Thursday night.

Finney-Smith's late 3 helps Mavs to 116-115 win over Nuggets

7.1h12/7/2022 12:56 AM ET By PAT GRAHAM, AP Sports Writer DENVER

DENVER (AP) — Dorian Finney-Smith had someone in his ear after missing a late 3-pointer.

It was Luka Doncic and his message was straightforward: Shoot it again if the opportunity arises.

He followed Doncic's directions. He wouldn't miss.

Finney-Smith hit a go-ahead 3-pointer with 17.3 seconds remaining and the Dallas Mavericks rallied after squandering a late lead to beat the Denver Nuggets 116-115 on Tuesday night.

“Him just giving me confidence, that means a lot,” Finney-Smith said. “I’m just happy we got the win.”

Not that it would be easy.

Nikola Jokic had a chance to tie the game with 12 seconds remaining, but missed the first of two free throws. Spencer Dinwiddie hit both free throws to help seal the win for the Mavericks.

Tim Hardaway Jr. scored a season-high 29 points and Doncic recorded his 52nd career triple-double with 22 points, 12 assists and 10 rebounds.

The Mavericks hardly looked weary as they played the second game of a back-to-back. They beat the Western Conference-leading Phoenix Suns the night before.

“A lot of great things happened,” Mavericks coach Jason Kidd said. “It was a great game.”

Aaron Gordon had 27 points, while Jokic added 19 points, eight assists and eight rebounds for the Nuggets, who dropped their third straight game on a night when they committed 17 turnovers.

“There are no moral victories,” Nuggets coach Michael Malone said. “I feel the guys played hard, we competed and gave ourselves a chance.”

Dallas appeared to have the game well in hand after taking a 111-101 lead with just over 4 minutes remaining. But the Nuggets went on an 11-0 run and jumped in front on Bruce Brown's 3-pointer.

All it did was set the stage for Finney-Smith, who finished with 19 points.

The Mavericks finished 27 of 31 from the free throw line. Hardaway missed both attempts with 4.2 seconds remaining, setting up a desperation heave from Jamal Murray at the buzzer that missed the mark.

“Would love to have had a timeout at the end of the game so we could, make-or-miss on those Hardaway free throws, could've advanced the ball and get a better, quality shot," Malone said. "That’s on me. You can’t beat yourself.

“We know that they are an offensive firepower, a team that’s loaded. They have shooting everywhere.”

Nuggets guard Bones Hyland had a big bounce-back performance with 20 points after being benched last game for the second half. Malone said he chatted with Hyland and emphasized how big of a role he plays on the second unit.

“They call my name and I’m going to go out there and just do what I do," Hyland said. “Try to put the team in the best position.”

Mitchell scores 43, Davis leaves early as Cavs beat Lakers

9.1h12/6/2022 10:56 PM ET By The Associated Press CLEVELAND

CLEVELAND (AP) — Donovan Mitchell scored a season-high 43 points and Jarrett Allen returned from injury to add 24, leading the Cleveland Cavaliers to a 116-102 win on Tuesday night over the Los Angeles Lakers in LeBron James’ only visit home this season.

With Anthony Davis missing the final three quarters because of illness, the Cavs improved to an NBA-leading 11-1 on their floor, their best start at home since 2015-16, when James led them a championship.

Mitchell, who has Cleveland fans dreaming of another title run, took over in the second half and scored 29 points with the kind of performance James did routinely during his 11 seasons for the Cavs.

With Cleveland leading by 12 in the fourth, Mitchell buried a 3-pointer from the left wing to finish the Lakers. After dropping the shot, the All-Star guard strutted around the Rocket Mortgage FieldHouse floor nodding his head as James helplessly watched.

Darius Garland added 21 points and 11 assists for Cleveland.

James finished with 21 points and 17 rebounds, losing for just the third time in 20 games against the Cavs.

PISTONS 116, HEAT 96

MIAMI (AP) — Bojan Bogdanovic scored 28 of his 31 points in the second half, Alec Burks added 18 and Detroit ran away in the final two quarters to beat Miami.

Saddiq Bey scored 14, Isaiah Stewart had 11 points and 11 rebounds and Cory Joseph also finished with 11 points for the Pistons, who trailed 50-47 at halftime — then outscored Miami 69-46 in the final two quarters.

It was Detroit’s biggest margin of victory this season. The Pistons had won only one game by more than seven points, that being a 128-114 triumph over Golden State on Oct. 30.

Tyler Herro led all scorers with a season high-tying 34 points for Miami, which has dropped three of its last four games. The Heat are off to an 11-14 start for the third time in the last five seasons.

Pistons run away in 2nd half, embarrass Heat 116-96

9.8h12/6/2022 10:16 PM ET By TIM REYNOLDS, AP Basketball Writer MIAMI

MIAMI (AP) — The Detroit Pistons had a rare easy win.

Bojan Bogdanovic scored 28 of his 31 points in the second half, Alec Burks added 18 and the Pistons ran away in the final two quarters to beat the Miami Heat 116-96 on Tuesday night.

“Second half, we wanted to play faster and move the ball a little bit," Bogdanovic said. “I hit a couple 3s and everything opened up."

Saddiq Bey scored 14, Isaiah Stewart had 11 points and 11 rebounds and Cory Joseph also finished with 11 points for the Pistons, who trailed 50-47 at halftime — then outscored Miami 69-46 in the final two quarters.

It was Detroit’s biggest margin of victory this season. The Pistons had won only one game by more than seven points, that being a 128-114 triumph over Golden State on Oct. 30.

“It's a huge team win," Bogdanovic said. “We held a great offensive team under 100 points."

Tyler Herro led all scorers with a season high-tying 34 points for Miami, which has dropped three of its last four games. The Heat are off to an 11-14 start for the third time in the last five seasons.

“We simply just didn’t play well," Heat coach Erik Spoelstra said. “I thought we were pretty stable defensively through three quarters, and then the floodgates just opened."

Miami played without Jimmy Butler (right knee injury management), Dewayne Dedmon (left foot plantar fasciitis) and Gabe Vincent (left knee). But the Heat had Victor Oladipo for the first time all season; Oladipo, who had been sidelined with a knee issue since the preseason, had nine points in 18 minutes.

It was only the 80th appearance for Oladipo out of a possible 317 games since he suffered a severe knee injury while with the Indiana Pacers in 2019.

Herro made his first eight shots, seven of those in the first half, staking Miami to its slim early lead.

“He’s a dynamic player. ... He’s going to score on everybody,” Pistons coach Dwane Casey said.

Herro averages 27.8 points in five career games against Detroit, his most against any team. He and Bam Adebayo combined for 55 points but the other eight Heat players who played Tuesday combined for only 41.

TIP-INS

Pistons: Casey has coached against Spoelstra 44 times. Of the 102 coaches he’s faced in the NBA, he’s gone up against nobody more often than he has Spoelstra. ... Detroit is now 4-3 when holding opponents to 109 points or less. The Pistons are 3-16 when allowing 110 or more. ... The Pistons outscored Miami 57-30 from 3-point range. ... Cade Cunningham (left shin soreness) didn't play.

Heat: Adebayo also had 15 rebounds. ... Miami led by 11 in the first quarter and wound up losing for the second consecutive night. The Heat led 28-17 in Memphis on Monday in a 101-93 defeat; they led 17-6 on Tuesday. “Two games not to our standard," Spoelstra said. ... Oladipo has appeared in more playoff games with Miami (15) than regular-season games (13). ... The Heat trailed for the final 18:49.

USMNT VISITOR

Weston McKennie, a midfielder for the U.S. men’s national soccer team, was at the game and seated at a courtside table. McKennie played in all four games with the U.S. in the World Cup at Qatar; the Americans were eliminated with a round-of-16 loss to the Netherlands on Saturday.

Mitchell upstages LeBron at home, Cavs down Lakers 116-102

10.0h12/6/2022 10:06 PM ET By TOM WITHERS, AP Sports Writer CLEVELAND

CLEVELAND (AP) — As a kid growing up in New York, Donovan Mitchell idolized LeBron James. On Tuesday night, he upstaged him.

Mitchell scored a season-high 43 points and Jarrett Allen returned from injury to add 24, leading the Cleveland Cavaliers to a 116-102 victory over the Los Angeles Lakers in James' only visit home this season.

With Anthony Davis missing the final three quarters because of illness, the Cavs improved to an NBA-leading 11-1 on their floor, their best start at home since 2015-16, when James led them to a championship.

Mitchell, who has Cleveland fans dreaming of another title run, took over in the second half and scored 29 points with the kind of performance James had routinely during his 11 seasons for the Cavs.

“You always want to spoil the homecoming,” Mitchell said with a smile.

With Cleveland leading by 12 in the fourth, Mitchell buried a 3-pointer from the left wing to finish the Lakers. After dropping the shot, the All-Star guard strutted around the Rocket Mortgage FieldHouse floor nodding his head as James helplessly watched.

“He's Mitchell,” James said. “He's a special kid.”

Darius Garland added 21 points and 11 assists for Cleveland.

James finished with 21 points and 17 rebounds, losing for just the third time in 20 games against the Cavs.

Dennis Schroder and Russell Westbrook added 16 points apiece as Los Angeles had its four-game winning streak stopped.

Davis went out after eight minutes with flu-like symptoms. The eight-time All-Star had scored 99 points in his previous two games and had been playing as well as he has in several seasons after being plagued by injuries.

Davis didn't attempt a field goal and scored just one point before leaving.

“It got progressively worse as the day went on,” Lakers coach Darvin Ham said. "His temperature was 101 and some change. A-D wanted to try to play, but he felt too weak. He’s drained and dehydrated.

“That’s a huge loss, obviously, with the way he’s been playing lately.”

Without Davis clogging the middle, Allen, who missed the last five games with a bruised back, made his first 10 shots and helped the Cavs take a 57-49 halftime lead.

“Next man up,” James said when asked how he reacted to losing Davis. “That's a tall task — literally and figuratively.”

The Cavs welcomed James back with a video tribute during an early timeout. After a montage of clips, including some from 2016, James waved to the crowd and then blew kisses to show his appreciation.

The warm scene was in contrast to what happened almost exactly 12 years ago, when he came back with the Miami Heat and was met with boos and worse on a night James has said he'll never forget.

James said he was caught off guard by the tribute.

“It's always love coming back here,” he said. “The memories I have here will never be forgotten.”

GRUDGE MATCH

Ham wasn't aware of James' dominance over the Cavs until it was brought up during his pregame availability.

Ham has two theories on why James takes it out on Cleveland.

“Either he likes to put on a show or he really doesn't like (Cavs owner) Dan Gilbert,” Ham joked.

James and Gilbert had a famous falling out when the four-time champion left for Miami as a free agent in 2010.

TIP-INS

Lakers: James' 17 rebounds are his most in a road game. ... Davis was limited to just 76 games over the previous two seasons due to injuries. ... Los Angeles has not won a game that it did not lead at halftime, losing all nine. The Lakers are 0-10 when trailing after three quarters. ... Shot 6 of 36 on 3-pointers.

Cavaliers: Mitchell's 17 field goals are a career high. ... Kevin Love came in leading the league with 13 charges drawn. ... Competitive eating champion Joey Chestnut scarfed down more than 40 pierogies at halftime to defeat three fans who couldn't beat him while combining their totals.

Lakers lose star Davis with flu-like symptoms, fall to Cavs

11.5h12/6/2022 8:36 PM ET By TOM WITHERS, AP Sports Writer CLEVELAND

CLEVELAND (AP) — The flu shut down Anthony Davis. That's the only thing that has stopped him lately.

Davis was forced to leave Los Angeles' game against the Cleveland Cavaliers after the first quarter on Tuesday night and the Lakers struggled without their All-Star center in a 116-102 loss.

Davis had scored 99 points in his previous two games and had been on a tear over the past 10 as the Lakers went 8-2 to erase most of a horrible start this season. He scored just one point in eight minutes before he was forced to leave.

Davis didn't attempt a shot while adding three rebounds and two assists before being forced to call it a night.

Lakers coach Darvin Ham said Davis' symptoms gradually got worse during the course of the day.

“His temperature was 101 and some change," Ham said. "A-D wanted to try to play, but he felt too weak. He’s drained and dehydrated. That’s a huge loss, obviously, with the way he’s been playing lately.”

Ham said Davis is unlikely to play on Wednesday in Toronto. He also stressed Davis had not tested positive for COVID-19.

“Because of COVID, people forget that there is a common cold and a common flu out there," Ham said. "That’s what we’re dealing with here.”

The eight-time All-Star, who has played just 76 games over the past two seasons due to injuries, was chosen Western Conference player of the week on Monday after averaging 37.8 points, 13.0 rebounds, 3.0 assists and 3.3 blocks in four games.

In his previous 10 games, the 29-year-old averaged 34.2 points and 15.4 rebounds. He also shot 63% from the floor and 86% from the free throw line.

Davis scored 55 points in Sunday night's win at Washington, adding 17 rebounds and three blocked shots. He dropped 44 points in the previous game against Milwaukee.

Without him, the Lakers lacked an inside defensive presence and Cavs center Jarrett Allen scored 24 points, 22 in the first half on 10-of-11 shooting.

LeBron James tried to pick up the slack, grabbing 17 rebounds — his most ever in a road game. Reserve Thomas Bryant replaced Davis and scored a season-high 19 points in 28 minutes but Los Angeles couldn't offset the loss of Davis.

“That's a tall task,” James said. “Literally and figuratively.”

NBA adds Maurice Podoloff Trophy for team with best record

17.3h12/6/2022 2:46 PM ET By TIM REYNOLDS, AP Basketball Writer

There’s now another trophy for NBA teams to chase.

The league announced Tuesday that the team with the best regular season record will now receive The Maurice Podoloff Trophy, named for the first commissioner of the NBA.

And that name strongly suggests that another trophy tweak is coming — since until last season, the league’s MVP trophy was named for Podoloff. Denver’s Nikola Jokic received the Podoloff Trophy when he won his first MVP award in 2021; when he won MVP again last season, he also received a crystal ball amid a leaguewide redesign of many trophies.

The new Podoloff Trophy has a crystal ball cut into 82 panels — a nod to the 82-game regular season — and sits atop a pedestal that combines the structures of the Eastern Conference posts and Western Conference rings.

The league also unveiled several more redesigned trophies Tuesday. The Joe Dumars Trophy for sportsmanship, The Red Auerbach Trophy for coach of the year, The Twyman-Stokes Trophy for the league’s best teammate and the NBA Executive of the Year Trophy all have new looks. Each features an embedment inside a 15-inch crystal net structure.

“Winning the first NBA Sportsmanship Award and being the trophy’s namesake are among the greatest honors of my career,” said Dumars, who is now an NBA Executive Vice President and the league’s head of basketball operations. “The reimagined trophies represent the enduring legacy of past recipients and are a fitting way to honor those who will continue to raise the standard of excellence in our game.”

Last season, the league changed the look of the NBA’s championship trophy, The Larry O’Brien, with the golden ball atop it now tilting in a different direction than the previous version and with a rounded base instead of the square one that the trophy had for decades.

It also made design changes for many other awards, including the Bill Russell NBA Finals MVP trophy along with the Eastern Conference and Western Conference championship trophies — naming them for Bob Cousy and Oscar Robertson, respectively. The league also added two new prizes last season, the Larry Bird Trophy for East finals MVP and the Magic Johnson Trophy for West finals MVP.

All the trophies handed out at All-Star weekend, including the Kobe Bryant MVP award, were also redesigned last season. The league also began issuing divisional championship trophies, naming them for Nat “Sweetwater” Clifton (Atlantic Division), Wayne Embry (Central), Earl Lloyd (Southeast), Willis Reed (Southwest), Sam Jones (Northwest) and Chuck Cooper (Pacific).

Analysis: In the NBA, 100 points no longer assures anything

1.1d12/6/2022 6:05 AM ET By TIM REYNOLDS, AP Basketball Writer

If the NBA has a magic number, it’s 100.

Wilt Chamberlain’s single-game scoring record. A perfect shooting percentage. And the rule pretty much seemed to be that if a team scored 100 points in a game, it probably was going to walk off the floor as a winner.

Not anymore.

Put simply, 100 doesn’t guarantee anything. Teams with at least 100 points are losing 45% of their games so far this season, the highest such rate in more than 50 years and nearly 10% higher than the league’s all-time average.

Orlando is 4-16 when scoring 100 points. Detroit is 6-14 in those games. Houston is 7-15. It’s just not enough to win in this NBA era, where defense might seem optional — teams insist that isn’t the case — and 20-point scorers appear to be everywhere.

Really. They’re everywhere. Right now, there are nearly 50 NBA players on pace to average 20 points this season. A decade ago, only 11 players finished the season with such an average. There will, without question, be more 20-point-per-game guys not getting picked for the All-Star Game this year than ever before, simply because there aren't anywhere near enough roster spots in that game to accommodate them all.

“We’ve got a lot of threats out there to shoot the ball,” said Brooklyn’s Kevin Durant, whose current average of 29.9 points per game ranks seventh in the league this season -- yet is more than he averaged in two of the four seasons in which he won the league’s scoring title. “So that keeps defenses on their heels.”

He was speaking of the Nets when he said that, though he could have just as easily been talking about the whole league.

Not since 1969-70 has the NBA seen a season where teams are averaging this many points per game. The league average this season is 113 points per contest; that’s up 13 points from eight seasons ago and up almost 17 points from 11 seasons ago. Much of that has to do with the league’s ongoing reliance on the 3-pointer — a record number of those (30.598) were made last season and this season is on pace for a similar total in that department.

Magic coach Jamahl Mosley says his definition of a good defensive game in this NBA is simple: holding an opponent to 107 or 108 points tends to make him happy.

“That's the crazy part about it," Mosley said. “You say you're scoring enough to get where you need to be, but then defensively, if you're giving up the 120's and the 115's, that's where it becomes tough. That's two or three less turnovers, that's one more rebound, that's knocking down one more shot, that's taking away one more 3. You talk about the small gains and the small things you can do to help your defense get better, those are the pieces."

This may be the best and simplest example of how the game has changed. In the 2014-15 season, the Los Angeles Clippers averaged 106.9 points per game, which was second-best in the NBA.

This season, the Clippers are averaging 107.2 per game. That’s last in the league.

“I think one of our team’s greatest challenges right now is just being consistent on both ends of the floor, especially the defense,” Denver coach Michael Malone said.

Every coach in the league could, and probably has, offered a similar assessment. The game just keeps changing and what used to be normal just isn’t anymore.

Going into this week, more than half of the league’s teams — 16 of the 30 — are on pace to have one of the six highest-scoring seasons in their history. Of the first 351 games played this season, there have been only 10 instances of a team scoring less than 100 points and still winning. Last year, it happened about three times as frequently as it has this season.

Some of the stats out there right now when it comes to scoring are just wacky. Minnesota was 20-0 last season when scoring 126 points; the Timberwolves are 4-3 in those games this season. Miami scored 121 points in regulation and lost a game in Boston last week; the Heat had been 64-6 under coach Erik Spoelstra in such games.

And then there was Nov. 13, when the New York Knicks did something truly historic.

They scored 135 points in regulation that night and lost by double figures anyway, falling 145-135 to the Oklahoma City Thunder. Before that, the most recent time the Knicks scored that many points, without overtime, and lost by double figures was March 2, 1962.

They lost to the Philadelphia Warriors that night, 169-147.

That was the game where Wilt scored 100.

Rookie Nembhard has 31, leads Pacers past Warriors, 112-104

1.3d12/6/2022 1:05 AM ET By JANIE McCAULEY, AP Sports Writer SAN FRANCSICO

SAN FRANCSICO (AP) — Rookie Andrew Nembhard outshined the Splash Brothers on their home court.

Nembhard scored a season-high 31 points and added 13 assists and eight rebounds to lead the undermanned Indiana Pacers to a 112-104 victory over the Golden State Warriors on Monday night.

A second-round draft pick, Nembhard made a key 3-pointer with 4:26 to go and another jumper less than two minutes later.

“He was masterful tonight ... 31 and 13, those are high lottery numbers,” coach Rick Carlisle said.

Indiana played without starting point guard Tyrese Haliburton for a second straight game as he nurses soreness in his left groin.

Klay Thompson scored 28 points and made eight 3-pointers, moving up the NBA's career 3-point list on the six-year anniversary of his 60-point masterpiece against the Pacers.

Thompson finished 9 of 23, but Stephen Curry was held to 12 points on 3-for-17 shooting. Jordan Poole scored 23 starting in place of Andrew Wiggins, who sat out with tightness of the adductor muscle in his right leg.

“No matter what we do, it’s going to be hard to guard these guys. We had some good fortune with them missing some shots they may normally make,” Carlisle said. “But our guys played with a lot of presence to start the game. We were switching a lot and everyone was tied together.”

Nembhard hit five 3s while Buddy Hield added 17 points, nine rebounds and five assists as Indiana snapped a three-game losing streak with just its second win in six games.

Nembhard and the Pacers hardly looked like a team playing the second game of a road back-to-back.

“He was hoopin’ and I think that starts in the first half for us,” Golden State's Donte DiVincenzo said. “The guards have to get into it a little bit more.”

Golden State had its 10-game home winning streak snapped.

Curry went 1 of 7 in the first half, missing all four of his 3-point tries and was 2 for 10 from deep overall. Curry finally connected from long range with 5:13 left in the third after missing his first five.

The Pacers, missing six players with injuries or illness, jumped out to a 22-12 lead as Golden State started 5 for 17.

Thompson knocked down three straight 3-pointers — all from the right wing — to tie the game at 42 with 4:51 left in the second quarter before a Pacers timeout. Thompson also dished out an assist on Jonathan Kuminga's layup before his trio of 3s and nearly had another when Kuminga was fouled and made both free throws to cap a 20-2 run 3:40 before halftime.

60-POINT MEMORIES

Thompson scored 60 against Indiana over three quarters on Dec. 5, 2016. On Monday, he passed Jason Kidd (1,988) for 13th place on the 3-pointers list and now has 1,990.

“I remember people being mad at me for not keeping him out there on the floor so that he could try to get 70, but we had a big lead and at the end of the third it was clear cut we were going to win the game,” Warriors coach Steve Kerr said. “It was an easy decision. I just remember, we've seen Klay get hot a lot over the years, but there's a few games that stand out and that's one of them.”

TIP-INS

Pacers: Indiana matched the Warriors in rebounding with 47 and led 34-21 after the opening quarter. ... The Pacers also were without Myles Turner (sore right hamstring), James Johnson (sprained right elbow), T.J. McConnell (non-COVID illness), Chris Duarte (left ankle sprain) and Daniel Theis (right knee surgery).

Warriors: Kuminga fouled out in the final minute. ... The Warriors have lost four straight at home to Indiana since a 112-89 win March 21, 2019, at old Oracle Arena in Oakland. ... Golden State dropped to 11-2 at home and the 10-game unbeaten run was the best for the team on its home floor since 11 in a row from Oct. 30-Dec. 3, 2021.

UP NEXT

Pacers: At Minnesota on Wednesday night to conclude a seven-game trip over 12 days that is the team's longest in 37 years.

Warriors: At Utah on Wednesday night having won two straight and six of seven vs. the Jazz.

Rockets outlast 76ers in 2 OTs; Harden 4 for 19 in return

1.4d12/5/2022 11:35 PM ET By KRISTIE RIEKEN, AP Sports Writer HOUSTON

HOUSTON (AP) — Jalen Green scored 27 points and Kevin Porter Jr. added 24 to lead the Houston Rockets to a 132-123 double-overtime victory over the Philadelphia 76ers on Monday night as James Harden struggled through his return from injury.

Harden had 21 points but shot 4 for 19 from the field in his first game since Nov. 2. He said he felt good but was disappointed in his performance.

“I didn’t play well, but I’ve got to be better and I will,” he said.

Coach Doc Rivers said Harden, who spent just more than eight seasons with the Rockets before being traded to Brooklyn in January 2021, would be on a minutes restriction in his return. Harden didn’t seem to be limited much, and played 39 minutes.

But he said having his minutes monitored in this game made it tough to get in a rhythm.

“I was all over the place,” he said. “I’m not used to it. But I’m not making any excuses. I have to do better.”

He added that Rivers didn't want him to play as much as he did in overtime.

“I had to fight to stay on the court just because there was a certain plan in place before the game started,” Harden said. “But once you go out there as a competitor you want to try to win.”

Harden had missed 14 games with a tendon strain in his right foot. He missed all eight attempts inside the 3-point arc but still got to the line like he always does and made 9 of 10 free throws.

Houston opened the second overtime with consecutive 3-pointers by Eric Gordon and Porter. P.J. Tucker then scored his first points of the game on a long 2 that cut the lead to 123-119.

Porter made two free throws before Harden got Philadelphia within 125-122 with a 3-pointer with about 90 seconds left. But rookie Jabari Smith Jr. added a 3 for Houston to extend the lead to six a few seconds later and Houston held on for the win.

Coach Stephen Silas said finding a way to this one was important for his young team.

“It’s huge for our confidence,” he said. “Any time that you spend as much time as we do teaching and developing you want to see the fruits of that.”

Joel Embiid had 39 points before fouling out late in the first overtime and Tobias Harris added 27 as the Sixers dropped their third straight.

Harden won the MVP award with the Rockets in 2018 and was a three-time scoring champion in his time in Houston. He received a warm welcome from the crowd when he was announced before the game.

Gordon grabbed a steal on a bad pass by Embiid to give the Rockets the ball with 7.5 seconds left in the first OT trailing by one. Embiid fouled out when he knocked down Porter as he drove to the basket after that. The Sixers challenged the foul call, but it was unsuccessful.

Porter made the first free throw to tie it but missed the second and De’Anthony Melton grabbed the rebound, but Harden missed a 3 to send it to the second OT.

The game was tied late in the fourth quarter when Porter blocked a 3 by Harden. Melton grabbed the offensive rebound but lost the ball out of bounds to give the Rockets the ball back with 3 seconds left.

Green had a chance to win it at the buzzer, but his 3-point attempt clanged off the rim.

There were 61 fouls in this game and the teams combined to shoot 80 free throws. Houston made 34 of 44 and Philadelphia was 28 of 36.

TIP-INS

Sixers: Jalen Springer missed an eighth straight game with a strained right quadriceps. … Georges Niang sat out with a sore right foot.

Rockets: Kenyon Martin Jr. scored 12 points off the bench. … Gordon had 14 points.

EASON'S PROGRESS

Rookie Tari Eason, the 17th overall pick in the draft, had 18 points, six rebounds and three steals for Houston. Silas raved about the progress he's made early in his rookie season.

“He’s always around the basketball and with that comes more trust and more minutes,” Silas said.

UP NEXT

Sixers: Open a seven-game homestand Friday night against the Lakers.

Rockets: Visit San Antonio Thursday night.

Giannis' 10-second (and more) FT routine draws more scrutiny

1.4d12/5/2022 11:15 PM ET By TIM REYNOLDS, AP Basketball Writer ORLANDO, Fla.

ORLANDO, Fla. (AP) — Giannis Antetokounmpo is having issues at the foul line again.

Not with his accuracy — but his timing.

For the second time in his team's last three games, the Milwaukee Bucks’ star had a free throw taken away because he didn’t shoot it within the allotted 10 seconds — a problem that has dogged him at various times throughout his career.

“Sometimes I'm so tired I take a few extra seconds of resting,” said Antetokounmpo, who turns 28 on Tuesday. “If there's going to be a 10-second call, I expect it. I'll give them the ball and run the other way.”

The latest chapter in this years-long saga came with 1:52 left in the third quarter of Milwaukee’s 109-102 win over Orlando on Monday night. Antetokounmpo was fouled by Moritz Wagner and took about 13 seconds before taking and making his first attempt.

On what would have been the second free throw, Antetokounmpo’s routine was much like the previous attempt. He caught the pass from official Nate Green, took a deep breath and held the ball on his left hip for about 6 1/2 seconds. He then moved the ball in front of him, holding it with both hands, spun it, dribbled once, gathered it again and took another deep breath.

All that took about 7 more seconds.

“At the end of the day, that's my routine," Antetokounmpo said. “Obviously, I have to respect the rules and shoot it before the 10 seconds. But anytime that it's 10 seconds, I'm OK with it. If they call it, I don't complain."

By then, referee Brian Forte had seen enough and blew his whistle. Antetokounmpo never got the shot away, and it wouldn’t have counted at that point if he did.

“He’s aware,” Bucks coach Mike Budenholzer said when asked if he talks to Antetokounmpo when the foul line becomes a struggle. “It’s a brief conversation. He’s got routines and sticks to them. I think he’s overall in a good place this year. He’s just got to tighten it up a little bit.”

A similar scene happened Friday in Milwaukee’s loss to the Los Angeles Lakers, when Antetokounmpo was called for a 10-second violation in what became a 133-129 loss. He didn't play in Milwaukee's win over Charlotte on Saturday.

For the season, Antetokounmpo is shooting a career-worst 62% from the foul line. He had a three-game stretch in November where he shot a horrible 13-for-38 (34%) from the line — a 4-for-15 game in Philadelphia was part of that, the night where he returned to the court postgame for some practice and wound up sending a ladder toppling to the ire of arena workers.

Since that three-game stretch, he's shot 49 for 67 (73%). He was 8 for 11 on Monday.

“As I've said, 10 games ago, I wasn't at my best," Antetokounmpo said. “Now I'm making some. I'm shooting it better and hopefully I can keep this up. And I believe I'm going to keep this up."

The wording of the NBA definition for free throws in the rulebook is this: “A free throw is the privilege given a player to score one point by an unhindered attempt for the goal from a position directly behind the free throw line. This attempt must be made within 10 seconds.”

That has been an issue for Antetokounmpo throughout his career — most notably in the 2021 playoffs, when he was called for 10-second violations multiple times. That didn't exactly cause lasting damage; Milwaukee won the NBA title and Antetokounmpo was NBA Finals MVP.

There was a game in 2016 against Portland when Meyers Leonard, then of the Trail Blazers, held up his fingers while on the bench to silently count off the 10-plus seconds it took Antetokounmpo to shoot a foul shot. Fans in Toronto have used the tactic during some of Antetokounmpo’s past trips there, too.

In the game against the Lakers on Friday, Russell Westbrook counted off 10 seconds as well — not silently, and got the violation called.

“I did feel validated," Westbrook said. “Glad they paid attention."

Antetokounmpo fought through whatever the issue is on subsequent trips to the line Monday.

He went back to the line with 2 minutes left in regulation and Milwaukee clinging to a four-point lead. He moved much more quickly, unofficially taking the full 10 seconds in both cases before releasing the basketball, and made one of the two shots.

With 40.2 seconds left, he went back to the line, again taking roughly 10 seconds before each shot. He made both to give the Bucks a 106-99 lead, unfazed by fans loudly (and a bit briskly) counting off seconds as he prepared to shoot.

“It is what it is," Antetokounmpo said.

Doncic, Mavericks preserve big lead, roll past Suns 130-111

1.4d12/5/2022 11:05 PM ET By SCHUYLER DIXON, AP Sports Writer DALLAS

DALLAS (AP) — Luka Doncic and the Dallas Mavericks got the most important victory over Phoenix in Game 7 of the Western Conference semifinals last season.

Now they can say goodbye to that pesky 10-game, regular-season losing streak.

Doncic scored 33 points, Spencer Dinwiddie added 21 and the Mavericks preserved a big lead against the Suns this time in a 130-111 victory on Monday night.

The Mavericks remained in control after a 28-8 run covering most of the last 10 minutes of the first quarter, and Doncic got to rest the entire the fourth quarter of a second consecutive blowout win.

That didn't happen in the season opener at Phoenix, when Dallas blew a 22-point lead in the second half of a 107-105 loss. That was the first meeting since the Mavs' Game 7 rout in Phoenix.

Protecting the lead could help Dallas on Tuesday night in Denver as the Mavs finish the second back-to-back in a stretch of seven games in 11 days.

“I’m really happy,” said Doncic, who had eight assists and six rebounds. “I like this.”

Deandre Ayton scored 20 points for the Suns, who couldn't recover from a 15-point first quarter, their lowest total in any quarter this season, as they finished a Texas back-to-back after a blowout victory in San Antonio.

“It’s only a good sign if the other team has 14,” coach Monty Williams said of Phoenix's woeful opening quarter, which ended with the Suns down 33-15. “That didn’t happen.”

Phoenix lost for just the second time in nine games, while Dallas won consecutive games for the first time in three weeks. The Mavs beat the Knicks 121-100 in New York two days earlier.

Devin Booker, who was averaging 39 points over the previous four games, scored 11 on 4-of-13 shooting. The Suns shot 26% in the first quarter before finishing at 44% to 52% for the Mavericks.

The Suns trailed by as many as 27 and were never closer than 17 in the second half. Booker also sat the entire fourth a night after Phoenix shot 52% overall and 51% from 3-point range in a 133-95 victory over the Spurs.

“You’re going to have nights like that, especially when you compare it to how we shot he ball in San Antonio,” Williams said. “We just didn’t have it in the first half.”

Christian Wood had 18 points and nine rebounds for Dallas, while Josh Green scored 16 points and tied his career best in plus-minus at plus-26.

RECRUITING VISIT

Free agent NFL receiver Odell Beckham Jr. attended the game with two stars of the defense for the Dallas Cowboys, linebacker Micah Parsons and cornerback Trevon Diggs. They sat in Cowboys owner Jerry Jones' courtside seats next to the Phoenix bench.

Beckham politely declined to discuss in detail his visit with reporters when he arrived at the arena, where fans chanted “O-B-J” multiple times during the game.

He was spending Monday and Tuesday with the playoff-contending Cowboys after previous trips to the New York Giants, his first NFL team, and Super Bowl contender Buffalo.

The 30-year-old Beckham is recovering from a torn ACL, an injury he sustained in the Super Bowl in February while winning the title with the Los Angeles Rams.

Doncic said he spoke briefly with Beckham after the game, and Mavericks owner Mark Cuban also greeted the three-time Pro Bowler.

“I tried,” Doncic said of his recruiting pitch. “After the game, I saw him. So, hopefully. I can’t say nothing. Go Cowboys.”

TIP-INS

Suns: Cameron Payne had 14 points and a game-high 10 assists. ... Josh Okogie scored a season-high 12 points.

Mavericks: Kemba Walker dressed but still didn't make his Dallas debut in the fourth game since signing. The four-time All-Star went unsigned the first six weeks of the season. The 32-year-old has been battling knee issues in recent years. ... Rookie Jaden Hardy scored 10 points in the final 2:25 two days after getting the first points of his career (five) against the Knicks.

UP NEXT

Suns: Host Boston on Wednesday before a four-game trip in a road-heavy December.

Mavericks: The Nuggets and Mavericks are playing for the third time in 19 days after splitting consecutive games in Dallas last month.

Jones' career-high 28 points lead Grizzlies past Heat 101-93

1.4d12/5/2022 10:45 PM ET BY CLAY BAILEY, Associated Press MEMPHIS, Tenn.

MEMPHIS, Tenn. (AP) — Tyus Jones had a career-high 28 points and 10 assists to lead the short-handed Memphis Grizzlies to a 101-93 victory over Miami Heat on Monday night.

Santi Aldama added 18 points and 10 rebounds, while Dillon Brooks finished with 17 for Memphis, which played without leading scorer Ja Morant and several other key players. Jones started in place of Morant, filling in for the Grizzlies' leading scorer.

“I view myself as a starter in this league. I feel like I am a starter in this league. I just come off the bench,” said Jones. “I have no shame in that.”

Tyler Herro led the Heat with 23 points and 13 rebounds. Jimmy Butler had 18 points and Caleb Martin finished with 16 for the Heat.

“This was the first game of the year where it just looked like we were flat; in the mud for a large portion of the game,” Heat coach Erik Spoelstra said. “Even when we were able to get some footing, we just weren’t able to take control of the game.”

Both teams entered the night having won four of their previous five games, and that included a Memphis win over Detroit on Sunday. But playing the second night of a back-to-back meant several Grizzlies were unavailable. Three of the five most recent starters — Morant, Jaren Jackson Jr. and John Konchar -- were out, leaving a load of minutes for reserves and two-way players.

“It’s a lot different when they start (different) guys,” said Heat center Bam Adebayo, who finished with 15 points. “That’s when the guys that come off the bench give more life.”

Miami opened with accurate shooting and built an early advantage, but Memphis stayed close and took the lead in the second quarter when the Heat’s shooting touch cooled.

After shooting 53% in the first quarter, the Heat were 21 of 60 from the field the rest of the way as the Memphis lead grew to 12 in the fourth quarter.

“Our activity was there. We were flying around,” Memphis coach Taylor Jenkins said of his team’s defense getting stronger. “I think that was just finding our way throughout the game.”

TIP-INS:

Heat: Made six of their first seven 3-point attempts. … Adebayo has 38 straight games in which he has scored in double figures. … Erik Spoelstra successfully challenged a foul on Kyle Lowry in the fourth quarter. Spoelstra is now 7-1 in coach’s challenges this season.

Grizzlies: The game was the first of a five-game homestand, the team’s longest of the season. … G Desmond Bane missed his 11th game with a right big toe sprain. With Bane and John Konchar unavailable, rookie David Roddy got his first professional start. … Grizzlies, who defeated Detroit on Sunday, are 1-2 in the second game of a back-to-back.

TAKE NO ONE LIGHTLY

Even with a chunk of the Grizzlies starters taking the night off, Spoelstra in his pregame comments – almost as a warning -- said his team is in no position to look past a short-handed opponent. He noted Miami started the night a game under .500. “It’s not anywhere we want to be,” Spoelstra said waving his arms for emphasis. “We’ve got a lot of work to do still ahead. We’re not where we want to be. Not in the slightest.”

MAN DOWN

A two-official crew – Scott Foster and JB DeRosa – had to call the game after Marat Kogut, the third member, was a late scratch due to non-COVID related illness.

UP NEXT:

Heat: Host Detroit on Tuesday.

Grizzlies: Host Oklahoma City on Wednesday.

Leonard hits go-ahead shot in return, Clippers beat Hornets

1.4d12/5/2022 10:25 PM ET By The Associated Press CHARLOTTE, N.C.

CHARLOTTE, N.C. (AP) — Kawhi Leonard had 16 points, including an 18-foot jumper with 1.4 seconds to lift the Los Angeles Clippers to a 119-117 victory over the Charlotte Hornets on Monday night in his return from a right ankle sprain.

Paul George also came back from a strained hamstring to score 19 points along with seven assists for the Clippers, who snapped a two-game losing streak. Reggie Jackson and Nic Batum each had 13 points, and John Wall added 12 points and 12 assists off the bench.

Luke Kennard added nine points off the bench in his first game back from an injury as well.

Kelly Oubre had 28 points and P.J. Washington bounced back from an 0-for-13 shooting night on Saturday night to add 26 for the Hornets. Washington missed a fadeaway jumper as time expired that would have tied the game.

ROCKETS 132, 76ERS 123, 2 OT

HOUSTON (AP) — Jalen Green scored 27 points and Kevin Porter Jr. added 24 to lead Houston over Philadelphia as James Harden struggled through his return from injury.

Harden had 21 points but shot 4 for 19 from the field in his first game since Nov. 2. Coach Doc Rivers said Harden, who spent just more than eight seasons with the Rockets before being traded to Brooklyn in January 2021, would be on a minutes restriction in his return. But Harden didn’t seem to be limited much, and played 39 minutes.

He had missed 14 games with a tendon strain in his right foot. He missed all eight attempts inside the 3-point arc but still got to the line like he always does and made 9 of 10 free throws.

Joel Embiid had 39 points before fouling out late in the first overtime and Tobias Harris added 27 as the Sixers dropped their third straight.

MAVERICKS 130, SUNS 111

DALLAS (AP) — Luka Doncic scored 33 points, Spencer Dinwiddie added 21 and Dallas preserved a big lead against Phoenix this time.

The Mavericks remained in control after a 28-8 run covering most of the last 10 minutes of the first quarter while ending a 10-game, regular-season losing streak against the Western Conference-leading Suns.

Dallas squandered a 22-point lead in the second half of a 107-105 loss at Phoenix in the season opener between teams that met in the West semifinals last season. Dallas won that series last spring with a Game 7 rout on the Suns’ home court.

Deandre Ayton scored 20 points for the Suns, who couldn’t recover from a 15-point first quarter, their lowest total in any quarter this season, as they finished a Texas back-to-back after a blowout victory in San Antonio.

CELTICS 116, RAPTORS 110

TORONTO (AP) — Jayson Tatum had 31 points and 12 rebounds, Jaylen Brown scored 22 points and Boston won for the seventh time in eight games, beating Toronto.

Defensive Player of the Year Marcus Smart scored 18 points for Boston after sitting out Sunday’s win at Brooklyn because of a bruised left hip.

Blake Griffin scored 13 points and Luke Kornet had 11 for the Celtics, who own the NBA’s best record at 20-5. Boston is 16-2 since starting the season 4-3.

Pascal Siakam scored 29 points, Scottie Barnes had 21 and Gary Trent Jr. 20, but Toronto lost for the first time in four home games. The Raptors are 9-3 north of the border this season.

PACERS 112, WARRIORS 104

SAN FRANCISCO (AP) — Rookie Andrew Nembhard scored a season-high 31 points and added 13 assists and eight rebounds to lead undermanned Indiana over Golden State.

A second-round draft pick, Nembhard made a key 3-pointer with 4:26 to go and another jumper less than two minutes later. Indiana played without starting point guard Tyrese Haliburton for a second straight game as he nurses soreness in his left groin.

Klay Thompson scored 28 points and made eight 3-pointers on the six-year anniversary of his 60-point masterpiece against the Pacers.

Thompson finished 9 of 23, but Stephen Curry was held to 12 points on 3-for-17 shooting. Jordan Poole scored 23 starting in place of Andrew Wiggins as he sat out with tightness of the adductor muscle in his right leg.

BUCKS 109, MAGIC 102

ORLANDO, Fla. (AP) — Giannis Antetokounmpo scored five of his 34 points in the final two minutes to help Milwaukee hold off a late Orlando rally.

Bobby Portis added 18 points and 10 rebounds for the Bucks, and Jrue Holiday added 17 points, 10 assists and eight rebounds.

Franz Wagner led Orlando with 25 points. Markelle Fultz and Paolo Banchero added 20 points apiece. Banchero also had 12 rebounds for the Magic, who lost their ninth straight.

Antetokounmpo, Sandro Mamukelashvili and Holiday hit 3-pointers on a 16-0 Milwaukee run midway through the first half while Orlando went scoreless for 5 1/2 minutes. The spurt left the Bucks with an 11-point lead that they stretched to 15 midway through the period.

GRIZZLIES 101, HEAT 93

MEMPHIS, Tenn. (AP) — Tyus Jones had a career-high 28 points and 10 assists to lead short-handed Memphis over Miami.

Santi Aldama added 18 points and Dillon Brooks finished with 17 for Memphis, which played without leading scorer Ja Morant and several other key players.

Tyler Herro led the Heat with 23 points and 13 rebounds. Jimmy Butler, who had only one field goal in the first half, scored 18, and Caleb Martin finished with 16 for the Heat.

Both teams entered the game having won four of their previous five games, and that included a Memphis win over Detroit on Sunday. But playing the second night of a back-to-back meant several Grizzlies, in addition to Morant, were unavailable. Three of the five most recent starters — Morant, Jaren Jackson Jr. and John Konchar -- were out, leaving a load of minutes for reserves and two-way players.

THUNDER 121, HAWKS 114

ATLANTA (AP) — Shai Gilgeous-Alexander scored 35 points, Josh Giddey had 12 of his 17 points in the final period, and Oklahoma City overcame a 14-point deficit in the third quarter to beat Atlanta.

Dejounte Murray finished with 24 points and Trae Young had 23 points and 10 assists for the Hawks (13-11), who have squandered six double-digit leads this season. They began the night tied for second-most in the NBA in that category.

In winning its third straight, Oklahoma City (11-13) has outscored its last three opponents 106-68 in the fourth. The Thunder trailed 88-84 entering the final period.

Giddey’s three-point play early in the fourth made it 91-90 for the Thunder’s first lead since late in the first. They never trailed again as Gilgeous-Alexander, the league’s third-leading scorer, kept hitting free throws down the stretch. He scored 12 points in the fourth and finished 15 for 15 from the foul line.

Gilgeous-Alexander scores 35 as Thunder rally past Hawks

1.4d12/5/2022 10:15 PM ET By GEORGE HENRY, AP Sports Writer ATLANTA

ATLANTA (AP) — Shai Gilgeous-Alexander scored 35 points, Josh Giddey had 12 of his 17 points in the final period, and the Oklahoma City Thunder overcame a 14-point deficit in the third quarter to beat the Atlanta Hawks 121-114 on Monday night.

Dejounte Murray finished with 24 points and Trae Young had 23 points and 10 assists for the Hawks (13-11), who have squandered six double-digit leads this season. They began the night tied for second-most in the NBA in that category.

In winning its third straight, Oklahoma City (11-13) has outscored its last three opponents 106-68 in the fourth. The Thunder trailed 88-84 entering the final period.

“It was an up and down game for us for sure, but when it really mattered it was a good gut check for us tonight," Gilgeous-Alexander said. “Kind of midway through the third to end the third and to start the fourth we were really good again. That won us the game."

Giddey’s three-point play early in the fourth made it 91-90 for the Thunder’s first lead since late in the first. They never trailed again as Gilgeous-Alexander, the league’s third-leading scorer, kept hitting free throws down the stretch. He scored 12 points in the fourth and finished 15 for 15 from the foul line, all in the second half.

“Try to be aggressive, I try not to seek them too much, just play aggressive basketball and then when the opportunity presents itself I like to get there," Gilgeous-Alexander said. “Unfortunately I didn’t get there in the first half and I knew that going into halftime that I was going to try to get there in the second half for sure."

Oklahoma City went on a 23-8 run over an eight-minute span until the 2:53 mark of the fourth, putting too much distance for the Hawks to overcome. Gilgeous-Alexander hit a pair of free throws to make it 111-103 with 1:04 remaining to all but finish off Atlanta.

“I thought they were able to break down our defense early in the game and forced the defense to collapse and they had their kick-outs," Hawks coach Nate McMillan said. “They established the tempo that they wanted to play and with that and our help in the turnovers and outworking us on the glass, it’s going to be tough to beat them."

Young threw a backward pass over his right shoulder to feed Murray for a dunk that made it 63-54 early in the third, and Oklahoma City called timeout. A.J. Griffin later followed with a 3 that put the Hawks up 66-56, and Atlanta pushed the lead to 14 before the Thunder went on a 17-6 run to close within two on a pair of free throws by Gilgeous-Alexander.

Young was 0 for 5 from the field before his baseline runner gave Atlanta a 56-52 lead in the final minute before halftime. The Hawks were ahead 59-54 at intermission.

“The good thing about our team is we don’t give in," Giddey said. “We play through it. When things get tough, we come together."

Bucks, Antetokounmpo hold off Magic 109-102

1.4d12/5/2022 10:06 PM ET By DICK SCANLON, Associated Press ORLANDO, Fla.

ORLANDO, Fla. (AP) — Giannis Antetokounmpo scored five of his 34 points in the final two minutes Monday night to help the Milwaukee Bucks hold off a late Orlando rally in a 109-102 win over the Magic.

Bobby Portis added 18 points and 10 rebounds for the Bucks, and Jrue Holiday added 17 points, eight rebounds and 10 assists.

Franz Wagner led Orlando with 25 points. Markelle Fultz and Paolo Banchero added 20 points each. Banchero also had 12 rebounds for the Magic, who lost their ninth straight.

A reversal of a charging call against Antetokounmpo with exactly two minutes left in the game gave Milwaukee a big boost.

After a 3-pointer by Terrence Ross got Orlando within four points with 2:20 left, Antetokounmpo was called for a charge. But officials reversed the ruling, putting the Bucks star at the line and fouling Orlando’s Moritz Wagner out of the game.

“It was a big play. It’s good officiating,” said Bucks coach Mike Budenholzer. "It wasn’t a challenge. We were going to challenge it, but they went to the officiating review based on the restricted area. It's very, very important.

“It’s a big swing. Mo Wagner was very good for them tonight, and for him to not be able to finish the last few minutes."

During the review, the officials determined that Wagner had not set his feet in advance of the contact with Antetokounmpo.

“Honestly, you never want to be in a position at the end of a game to not have the power,” said Wagner, who had 19 points and 12 rebounds. “So even if (the call) went my way, I still put myself in that position with cheap fouls. I regret those three cheap fouls that I got before that. But that’s life, and I’ve got to do better next time.”

Antetokounmpo made one free throw and scored on a subsequent layup, putting the Bucs up 104-97 with 1:22 remaining.

Antetokounmpo was 8 for 11 from the free throw line, though did have one taken away for not shooting within the allotted 10 seconds. He is 49 for 67 (73%) since a three-game stretch in November where he shot a horrible 13 for 38 (34%).

“As I’ve said, 10 games ago, I wasn’t at my best,” Antetokounmpo said. “Now I’m making some. I’m shooting it better and hopefully I can keep this up. And I believe I’m going to keep this up.”

Antetokounmpo, Sandro Mamukelashvili and Holiday hit 3-pointers on a 16-0 Milwaukee run midway through the first half while Orlando went scoreless for 5 1/2 minutes. The spurt left the Bucks with an 11-point lead that they stretched to 19 late in the third period.

Fultz and Banchero led a charge to get the Magic back in it. A layup by Franz Wagner trimmed Milwaukee's lead to 98-92 with 3:30 left and the Magic missed several open 3-point shots with a chance to get closer. They shot 8 for 32 for the game from behind the arc.

Antetokounmpo finished with 13 rebounds and five assists and Magic coach Jamahl Mosley said his team defended him about as well it could.

“I think they did a great job of building a wall in front of Giannis,” Mosley said. “I know he got downhill a few times and he's tough to stop. Understanding that he's MVP (caliber), our guys did as best they could standing in front of him.”

TIP-INS

Bucks: The Bucks have beaten the Magic 12 straight times. ... AJ Green had 12 points in 10 minutes off the bench. ... C Brook Lopez got the night off, leaving George Hill as the only Buck to have played in all 23 games. ... G Grayson Allen was out with a foot injury.

Magic: The Magic bench shot 6 for 32 including Cole Anthony's 0 for 9. ... G Jalen Suggs missed his 11th game due to a sore right ankle. ... C Wendell Carter Jr. (right plantar fascia) missed his 10th game. ... C Mo Bamba missed a fifth straight game with back pain.

Tatum has 31, Celtics beat Raptors 116-110 for 7th win in 8

1.4d12/5/2022 10:05 PM ET By IAN HARRISON, Associated Press TORONTO

TORONTO (AP) — Jayson Tatum had 31 points and 12 rebounds, Jaylen Brown scored 22 points and the Boston Celtics won for the seventh time in eight games, beating the Toronto Raptors 116-110 on Monday night.

Defensive Player of the Year Marcus Smart scored 18 points for Boston after sitting out Sunday’s win at Brooklyn because of a bruised left hip.

“We’ve been the best team in the league for a minute and every night throws a different challenge at us,” Smart said.

Blake Griffin scored 13 points and Luke Kornet had 11 for the Celtics, who own the NBA’s best record at 20-5.

“20 and five, that’s big,” Tatum said. “That’s kind of how we wanted to start the season.”

Boston has gone 16-2 since starting the season 4-3.

Pascal Siakam scored 29 points, Scottie Barnes had 21 and Gary Trent Jr. 20, but Toronto lost for the first time in four home games. The Raptors are 9-3 north of the border this season.

Al Horford sat out the second game of Boston’s back-to-back because of a sore lower back, while guard Malcolm Brogdon was unavailable because of a non-COVID illness.

Tatum had 17 points in the third as the Celtics took the lead for good by outscoring Toronto 35-18.

“It just shows who we are,” Smart said. “No matter what we go through, we’re not going to make any excuses. We’re going to continue to play and we’re going to own up to whatever happens.”

Celtics interim coach Joe Mazzulla said he was pleased with the way his short-handed team responded after falling behind in the first half.

“You have to play the back-to-backs. You can’t run from them,” Mazzulla said. “Just have the right mindset. I thought our guys did a great job of fighting to stay in the game in the first half.”

Boston is 5-0 in the second game of back-to-backs this season.

Raptors guard Fred VanVleet shot 3 for 14 and scored eight points. He missed a 3-pointer that would have cut the gap to three points with less than 2 minutes remaining.

“We need to make a few more open shots when they’re generated,” Raptors coach Nick Nurse said.

Before the game, Nurse said he wanted to see how his team matched up against the league-leading Celtics, but several costly turnovers in the final period denied Toronto a chance to make it close.

“That was there to be had tonight,” Nurse said. “We didn’t make the plays.”

The Celtics were up 27-25 after one quarter but the Raptors led 62-56 at the half.

Boston reclaimed the lead at 71-69 on Tatum’s 3-pointer with 7:09 left in the third quarter. The Celtics took a 90-81 lead to the fourth.

TIP-INS

Celtics: Brown had eight rebounds and eight assists. … Improved to 4-0 against Atlantic Division opponents and 9-3 on the road. … Made just two turnovers in the second half.

Raptors: O.G. Anunoby scored 13 points … F Juancho Hernangomez (sprained right ankle) was not available. Hernangomez left injured in Saturday’s win over Orlando. … F Precious Achiuwa (right ankle) missed his 12th straight game while F Otto Porter Jr. (dislocated toe, left foot) missed his ninth straight.

DYNAMIC DUO

Brown extended his career-high stretch of games with 15 or more points to 15, while Tatum recorded his team-leading 12th double-double.

“We understand what we have with those two guys, the gems we have,” Smart said. “We don’t take them for granted.”

IN THE CROWD

Former NFL quarterback Colin Kaepernick and former Raptors star Donyell Marshall each attended the game. Kaepernick received a loud ovation when he was introduced after the first quarter.

Leonard returns, hits game-winner as Clippers beat Hornets

1.4d12/5/2022 9:45 PM ET By STEVE REED, AP Sports Writer CHARLOTTE, N.C.

CHARLOTTE, N.C. (AP) — Kawhi Leonard couldn't have drawn up a better return.

The five-time All-Star had 16 points, including an 18-foot jumper with 1.4 seconds to lift the Los Angeles Clippers to a 119-117 victory over the Charlotte Hornets on Monday night in his return from a right ankle sprain.

“I don't think anybody loves playing this game more than me,” Leonard said. “It gives me joy when I'm able to play. And it was great that I was able to make that shot.”

Paul George also came back from a strained hamstring to score 19 points along with seven assists, helping the Clippers snap a two-game losing streak. Reggie Jackson and Nic Batum each had 13 points, and John Wall added 12 points and 12 assists.

Luke Kennard added nine points off the bench in his first game back from an injury as well.

Charlotte's Kelly Oubre scored 28 points and P.J. Washington added 26 after going 0 for 13 on Saturday night. Washington missed a fadeaway jumper as time expired that would have tied the game.

Getting Leonard, George and Kennard back should provide a huge boost for the Clippers (14-11). Leonard has been out since Nov. 21, George since Nov. 19 and Kennard since Nov. 15 with a calf strain.

George said it's “super important” getting everyone healthy again, and that it felt like the start of a new season.

“This is really a great opportunity to kind of get back on track," George said. “We were playing well when we were healthy and now we can start building toward the team we were trying to be.”

The win didn't come easily.

The Hornets (7-17) outscored the Clippers 26-8 to start the third quarter behind eight points from Terry Rozier to take an 80-71 lead.

The Clippers tied it up when George saved an offensive rebound from going out of bounds by flicking the ball to Leonard under the basket for an easy basket.

“We’ve got to get that rebound," Hornets coach Steve Clifford said. “It’s the second game this year, you make one play and they’ve got to foul, we’re up two. That’s the biggest play.”

After Jalen McDaniels missed a 3 at the other end, the Clippers found Leonard for an isolation play on the right side of the court.

He made a ball fake to freeze McDaniels, then dribbled once and stepped back to his left to drain the shot before exchanging a high-five with George and a flying chest bump with Marcus Morris Sr..

“My teammates trusted me,” Leonard said. “I was able to get in my spot and my team gave me space. I was able to knock down a shot."

TIP-INS

Clippers: Norman Powell remained out with a groin strain. ... Shot 15 of 36 from 3-point range.

Hornets: LaMelo Ball has now missed 21 of 24 games this season with a high ankle sprain. Gordon Hayward has missed 13 games with shoulder issues, Cody Martin 23 games with a knee injury and Dennis Smith Jr. 10 games with a right ankle sprain.

Nike says Kyrie Irving is no longer one of its athletes

1.5d12/5/2022 7:45 PM ET By TIM REYNOLDS, AP Basketball Writer

Kyrie Irving’s relationship with Nike is officially over, the shoe and athletic apparel maker said Monday, a move that came a month after the company suspended the Brooklyn guard as part of the fallout over his tweeting a link to a film containing antisemitic material.

It was not a surprise breakup, especially after Nike co-founder Phil Knight said in the days after the company suspended Irving that he had doubts there would be any reconciliation.

“Kyrie Irving is no longer a Nike athlete,” the company said in a statement.

Irving’s agent and stepmother, Shetellia Riley Irving, told The New York Times that the sides “mutually decided to part ways and we just wish Nike all the best.” Irving, without mentioning Nike by name, appeared to address the matter on his Twitter account Monday afternoon.

“Anyone who has even spent their hard earned money on anything I have ever released, I consider you FAMILY and we are forever connected,” the Nets guard wrote. “it’s time to show how powerful we are as a community.”

Irving has been wearing his signature line of Nike in recent games. It’s unknown if the formal ending of his relationship with Nike will affect that, at least in the short term. He had been a Nike athlete for the entirety of his NBA career, starting in 2011, and got his first signature shoe with the company in 2014.

When Nike suspended Irving in early November, the company was just days away from releasing the Kyrie 8, what would have been the latest in his signature line.

“At Nike, we believe there is no place for hate speech and we condemn any form of antisemitism,” the Beaverton, Oregon-based company said at the time.

Irving missed eight games before being reinstated by the Nets on Nov. 20. He apologized that day to those who felt threatened or hurt when he posted a link to the documentary, and acknowledged that he should have handled earlier chances to clarify whether he has antisemitic beliefs differently.

“I don’t stand for anything close to hate speech or antisemitism or anything that is going against the human race,” Irving said on the day the Nets reinstated him.

Irving has expressed no shortage of controversial opinions during his career. He repeatedly questioned whether the Earth was round before eventually apologizing to science teachers. Last year, his refusal to get a COVID-19 vaccine led to him being banned from playing in most of the Nets’ home games.

When Nike suspended Irving in early November, the company was just days away from releasing the Kyrie 8, what would have been the latest in his signature line.

“At Nike, we believe there is no place for hate speech and we condemn any form of antisemitism,” the Beaverton, Oregon-based company said at the time.

Irving missed eight games before being reinstated by the Nets on Nov. 20. He apologized that day to those who felt threatened or hurt when he posted a link to the documentary, and acknowledged that he should have handled earlier chances to clarify whether he has antisemitic beliefs differently.

“I don’t stand for anything close to hate speech or antisemitism or anything that is going against the human race,” Irving said on the day the Nets reinstated him.

Irving has expressed no shortage of controversial opinions during his career. He repeatedly questioned whether the Earth was round before eventually apologizing to science teachers. Last year, his refusal to get a COVID-19 vaccine led to him being banned from playing in most of the Nets’ home games.

Hawks' Trae Young, McMillan try to smooth over dispute

1.5d12/5/2022 7:25 PM ET ATLANTA

ATLANTA (AP) — Trae Young says he and Hawks coach Nate McMillan have smoothed over their disagreement regarding his not attending a game last Friday.

Young, the team's leading scorer, was out with a sore shoulder and did not attend the game the win over the Denver Nuggets. It is rare for an injured player not to attend a home game.

“I mean, it was just a situation,” Young told reporters after Monday's morning shootaround. “I mean, we’re all grown men here and there’s some times we don’t always agree. And it’s unfortunate that private situations and private conversations got out to the public. But I guess that’s the world we live in now.

“But yeah, I’m just going to focus on basketball and focus on helping my team win. And that’s what I got to be focusing on.”

Young, who was in the lineup for the Hawks' game against Oklahoma City, declined to take questions before the game, but McMillan told reporters before tipoff that he addressed the team and spoke with Young after the morning shootaround.

“Trae is a very competitive kid,” McMillan said. “He understands. We both want the same thing, which is to win games. Again, things happen. We’re not going to agree on everything. That happens in your family, too, right? It’s not always going to be a perfect situation. He’s going to be fine.

“He is a 24-year-old man that has a ton of talent. He wants to win big. I want to win big. We’re going to continue to work on ways to try to make that happen.”

The Athletic was the first to report that Young and McMillan disagreed about his participation in last Friday’s shootaround. The report said that Young wanted to get his shoulder treated instead of participating in the shootaround, while McMillan wanted Young to participate in the shootaround and get treated during the walkthrough.

When Young said he would not participate in the shootaround, McMillan said he could either come off the bench or miss the game entirely. Young opted for the latter, and the team listed him as inactive with the shoulder injury.

Young, who led the NBA in total points scored and total assists last season, was upset that the details went public.

“Like I said, it’s a private matter,” he said. “Again, made public, which is unfortunate. And if it was to stay private, it probably wouldn’t have been as big of a deal. But like I said, it’s unfortunate and my job, and my goal is to win championships. And that’s what I focus on.”

McMillan wanted to clarify that he never told Young to skip the game.

“One thing I that do want to respond (to), there was something said about me telling Trae to not show up for a game,” McMillan said. “I will never, ever and have never, ever told a player not to show up for a game. That’s just false.”
