Sharp-shooting Lillard gets 31 points, Blazers beat Mavs
Damian Lillard tried to make a final statement as the NBA All-Star roster deadline nears.
I thought he locked my arm and I didn’t like that. So I let him know — dirty plays — I don’t like that, Nurkic said. The refs are going to do what they’re going to do. He got fouled and then he locked my arm on purpose. That’s not good.
James Harden felt closer to normal after struggling in his first game back from a hamstring injury, and the Houston Rockets got a big game from Chris Paul to down the Golden State Warriors on Saturday night.
Paul scored 33 points with 11 rebounds, Harden bested Stephen Curry twice in the final seconds and the Rockets held off the Warriors 116-108 to snap their 14-game road winning streak.
The victory gives Houston a 2-1 series advantage over Golden State after the reigning NBA champions had won the series the previous three seasons.
Obviously they’re a championship caliber team for the past four years … and that’s what we’re trying to build our way up to, Harden said.
Harden stepped back from Curry for a 3-pointer as the shot clock expired to make it 114-108 with 1:10 left, then blocked Curry’s 3-point attempt after a timeout.
I’m sitting here in my motor home with my wife cooking dinner and my two kids are playing on the floor in the motor home with race cars or Barbie dolls or whatever, and I’m sitting on my phone reading Twitter or playing on social media like, ‘What am I doing? This is ridiculous,’ Almirola said Tuesday during NASCAR media days at the Charlotte Convention Center.
I came to the point to where I was like, ‘I’m done, I’m checking out.’ People are writing me nasty things, like death threats.
Most of the comments weren’t so threatening. They were more like: I can’t believe Richard Petty lets you drive this car. … You’re horrible. … If he’s not going to take you out of the car, I will. I will come down to North Carolina and do it myself.
