NBA roundup: Clippers lock down Cavs

By
March 19, 2011 |

LOS ANGELES — Blake Griffin had 30 points, eight rebounds and eight assists, Eric Gordon scored 29 and the Los Angeles Clippers beat Cleveland 100-92 on Saturday to end a nine-game losing streak against the Cavaliers.

About 1½ hours before tipoff, the arena was in lockdown while police subdued a knife-wielding man who got past security and ended up in front of the Cavaliers’ bench. Both teams were tucked away in their dressing rooms during the tense standoff.

It did not delay the start of the game, which was followed by an NHL contest between the Kings and Anaheim Ducks.

The Clippers’ victory avenged a 126-119 overtime loss at Cleveland on Feb. 11, when the Cavs snapped their NBA-record 26-game losing streak.

J.J. Hickson led the Cavs with 28 points and nine rebounds, and Samardo Samuels scored 17 before fouling out with 1:19 remaining.<

Trail Blazers 110, 76ers 101: At Portland, Ore., Wesley Matthews had 17 of his 28 points in the first quarter, helping Portland to the victory.

Gerald Wallace added 25 points and a season-high eight assists for the Trail Blazers (40-29), who won for the seventh time in nine games to move within a half-game of Denver for the fifth playoff spot in the Western Conference. LaMarcus Aldridge had 18 points and Nicolas Batum finished with 16.

Lou Williams had 24 points, part of a 59-point night for Philadelphia’s reserves. Thaddeus Young had 19 points and Jodie Meeks added 17.

The Sixers (36-34) played without Andre Igoudala, who has been bothered by knee tendinitis.<

Celtics 89, Hornets 85: At New Orleans, Ray Allen scored 20 points, including the clinching free throws with 2.8 seconds left, and Boston rallied to get the win.

Allen also had a key offensive rebound that led to Glen Davis’ two foul shots that made it 87-83 with 15.2 seconds remaining. Davis also had 20 points.

The Celtics trailed 56-41 early in third quarter, but closed the period with a 23-6 run to go ahead 67-64.

David West led New Orleans with 32 points. Marco Belinelli added a season-high 23 points but Chris Paul went without a basket for only the fourth time in his career, finishing 0 of 9 from the floor. He finished with four points and 15 assists.<

Heat 103, Nuggets 98: At Miami, LeBron James scored 33 points, Dwyane Wade had 32 and Miami never trailed.

Chris Bosh finished with his fifth straight double-double, 18 points and 11 rebounds. But the Heat may have taken a significant hit when starting point guard Mario Chalmers was carried off the floor late in the first quarter with what was preliminarily diagnosed as a sprained right knee.

Chalmers, who has started 27 straight games since Jan. 22, will be re-examined on Sunday.

Mike Bibby, the only other true point guard on Miami’s roster, scored 14.

J.R. Smith had 27 points and Danilo Gallinari finished with 23 for Denver, which went 0-2 on its back-to-back swing through Florida after losing in Orlando on Friday night.<

Spurs 109, Bobcats 98: At San Antonio, Steve Novak scored 19 points while Tim Duncan took his first game off all season, helping San Antonio to the victory.

The Spurs let the 34-year-old Duncan rest a night after they really needed him in a win over Dallas. They managed fine without him against the sliding Bobcats, who have dropped three in a row and nine of their last 11.

Gerald Henderson led Charlotte with 19 points. Stephen Jackson, the Bobcats’ leading scorer, didn’t play because of a strained hamstring.

Only Duncan had started the first 68 games for San Antonio, having stayed healthy unlike recent years. The Spurs listed Duncan on their pregame injury report as “trop vieux” — French for “too old.”

Grizzlies 99, Pacers 78: At Memphis, Tenn., Tony Allen had 19 points and a career-high 11 rebounds to lead Memphis to the easy win.

Zach Randolph added 17 points and 10 rebounds for Memphis, which moved 1½ games ahead of idle Utah for the eighth and final playoff spot in the Western Conference. Mike Conley also had 17 points to go along with nine assists.

Danny Granger and Darren Collison led the Pacers with 17 points apiece, and Tyler Hansbrough had 14 points. Indiana was coming off an impressive 115-108 overtime victory over Chicago on Friday night.

Allen also had six assists and six steals, clamping down on Granger on the defense end. Indiana’s leading scorer went 5 for 15 from the field as the Pacers shot 36 percent for the game.
