Aldredge's 30 points paces Spurs past Nuggets

Aldredge's 30 points paces Spurs past Nuggets

Irving missed a jumper with 7.2 seconds left and the Nuggets' chance for a season-best fourth straight win came up empty when Barton's last-second 3-point attempt didn't even hit the rim.

Chandler's 9.1 points, 5.2 rebounds, and 2.0 assists per game are enough to keep him starting over others at the position, due to his ability to shoot from outside and defend on the perimeter, but it has done little to help boost Denver to where they hoped to be by this point of the season. Trey Lyles came off the bench to score 20 points, while Will Barton added 19 points.

Marcus Smart was out of the lineup again, missing his second straight game since injuring his hand at the team hotel last week in L.A.

"I had to make the shot".

Every Denver starter scored in double figures with Jamal Murray leading the way with 18 points and Gary Harris adding 17. The Nuggets got the defensive rebound following a missed basket by Irving with seven seconds left and they didn't call a timeout to advance ball, giving themselves a better chance to score the game victor.

Irving finished 11 of 17 from the field to lead the Celtics.

LS Speaker Sumitra Mahajan calls meeting of House leaders

"They put us in some tough spots and I thought our guys battled", said Boston coach Brad Stevens. "We missed some defensive assignments and I thought we missed some good opportunities on offense, but they found a way".

Jaylen Brown has shown the ability to impact the game at both ends of the floor, in transition and from beyond the 3-point line as was the case in Boston's 111-110 win over Denver which included him making the game-winning shot from 3-point range.

About 30 minutes after the final buzzer sounded just in the nick of time, Al Horford exhaled in the Boston Celtics locker room.

After the game, Kanter, asked about the possibility of replacing the injured Kevin Love on the LeBron James All-Star team, laughed and said, "I might ask for a trade".

Ginobili finished 3 for 6 on 3s while scoring 14 points, including six in 31 seconds in the first quarter. Tied entering the final minute, the Celtics hit a couple of clutch shots and stymied the Nuggets on defense.

Mason Plumlee had 16 points and 8 rebounds before he left with a leg injury in the 4th.

Knicks Rumors: Joakim Noah Exit Targeted After Jeff Hornacek Confrontation
He missed New York's next two games - the loss to the Denver Nuggets on Thursday and the win over the Phoenix Suns on Friday. Sources told ESPN that Noah has no inclination to give up a significant amount of guaranteed money in a potential buyout .

The Knicks and Celtics' long history has seen them meet 469 times in the regular season with Boston holding a 288-181 advantage in the win column.

Going into halftime, the Celtics led 56-45 behind strong transitional defense and consistent scoring.

San Antonio continues its homestand with a game Thursday against Houston while Denver returns home - where it will play its next three contests - with a showdown versus Oklahoma City, also on Thursday.

Celtics: G Terry Rozier played despite spraining his right ankle at Golden State and scored eight points off the bench.

EPA head Pruitt doesn't recall 2016 statements calling Trump a 'bully'
The comments came back to bit Pruitt, as he was grilled during a Senate committee hearing on Tuesday morning. Asked if he could recall the exchange, Pruitt said: "I don't".

Part of the problem is how much they rely on the three pointer. The Nuggets are winless at 0-4 against the spread in their last four games against the Spurs and are winless at the betting window in their last four trips to San Antonio as well.
