#1 more than beating any von shushu zhang 17.12.2018 07:37

HOUSTON -- The Houston Rockets recently have developed a knack for playing great in the third quarter. Coach Kevin McHale loves what his team has been doing after the break and wishes they could find that intensity early in games. James Harden tied a season high with 38 points, Dwight Howard added 20 points and 13 rebounds and the Rockets used a big third-quarter run to earn a 113-99 win over the Los Angeles Lakers on Wednesday night. Howard got his first win against his former team as the Rockets sent the injury-riddled Lakers to their third straight loss. "We did a better job in the second half of defending," McHale said. "It was a big difference in the game." The Rockets trailed by a basket in the third quarter before going on a 17-2 run to take an 80-67 lead and roll to victory. Harden hopes they can find a way to play better early when they leave Houston for a long road trip on Thursday. "At the beginning of the game ... we have to come out with a sense of urgency," he said. "We cant put ourselves in situations like that because on the road these four games anything is possible and if we do that, some games we might not be able to come back." Harden continued his recent torrid scoring with his third straight 30-point game. He has piled up 113 points in the last three games combined. Nick Young scored 25 points to lead Los Angeles and Pau Gasol and Jodie Meeks scored 21 each. Ronnie Brewer started for the first time this season in place of the injured Chandler Parsons, who was out with a sore right knee. Howard made a season-high four steals, Harden collected a season-best five steals, and Terrence Jones had 15 points and 13 rebounds. The Lakers had a two-point lead midway through the third quarter when Houston got rolling, scoring seven straight points thanks to a 3-pointer by Harden and back-to-back buckets by Howard to take a 70-65 lead. The second one brought the crowd to its feet when Harden swiped a bad pass from Kendall Marshall and tossed up an alley-oop that Howard finished with a monster two-handed slam. That spurt was the beginning of the 17-2 burst that extended Houstons lead to 80-67 with about two minutes left in the quarter. Harden was on fire in that span, scoring nine points and drawing a collective "ooh" from the crowd when he crossed up rookie Ryan Kelly on a layup to cap it. Los Angeles was as cold as Harden was hot, missing five shots and committing three turnovers while the Rockets built the lead. "We seem to run out of energy," Los Angeles coach Mike DAntoni said. "I dont know if they are getting tired or its just the other team turns on the burners." Howard spurned the Lakers to sign an $88 million deal with Houston, joining Harden and a team that made the playoffs last season for the first time since 2009. He admitted after practice Tuesday that he was ticked off that Los Angeles came out on top in the first meeting earlier this season. The centre missed several key free throws down the stretch in that one, a one-point win by the Lakers in November when they employed the Hack-A-Howard strategy. They were down by 14 points when they used that approach again Wednesday night, fouling him every time Houston got the ball for a two-minute span ending with about two minutes left. "Its nothing I like," DAntoni said. "It makes an ugly game, but were trying to get a win." Howard made just six of 14, but Houstons lead was so big this time it didnt matter. He finished 10 of 24 from the free throw line. "I was upset at myself for missing all those," Howard said. "I just have to get better at it." He wouldnt acknowledge that this win meant any more than beating any other team. But said it was important for the team to win in general to get going for the road trip. The Lakers, who are missing Kobe Bryant, Steve Nash, Jordan Farmar and Steve Blake with various injuries, lost for the ninth time in 10 games. Houston opened the second half with a 9-3 run to take a 61-60 lead with about 8 1/2 minutes left in the third quarter. Jones scored the last four points of that run. The Lakers led 57-52 at halftime.

The lightning strike was in the parking lot of Crew Stadium on Saturday night, but its not known if the off-duty lieutenant was struck directly, Columbus Fire Department Battalion Chief Tracy Smith said. The firefighter, identified as Lt. LANDOVER, Md. -- Robert Griffin III went head-first instead of sliding, so when the ball popped out it was a fumble. Aldrick Robinson had a touchdown catch in his hands, but he couldnt quite maintain possession as he hit the ground in the end zone. Thanks to the turf, the Detroit Lions have ended more than 70 years of road failure against the Washington Redskins. Detroit beat Washington 27-20 Sunday with big days from Matthew Stafford, Calvin Johnson and Nate Burleson and those two fourth-quarter Redskins bobbles, the kinds of breaks that had eluded Detroit (2-1) in the nations capital since Franklin Delano Roosevelt lived on Pennsylvania Avenue. "You never know how the cookies going to crumble, and it feels good that it crumbled our way this time," Detroit cornerback Rashean Mathis said. "I wasnt a part of the past, but I am part of the future, so it feels good to give the fans something to feel good about, and we can demolish a record, our streak, that was going on for years and years and years." Detroits last road victory in the series came in 1935 against the Boston Redskins, two years before the move to Washington (0-3). That 21-game streak was the second-longest in NFL history. History was at play in other ways. The "Calvin Johnson rule" -- in which a receiver must maintain possession of the ball all the way to the ground when falling during a catch -- worked in favour of the Lions for a change. The rule was named after Johnson after he had a catch in the end zone overturned three years ago against the Chicago Bears. This time it was Robinson who wasnt quite able to keep the ball from coming loose after hauling in a pass from Griffin for an apparent 57-yard touchdown. The score would have given the Redskins the lead with 9:05 to play, but it was overturned by replay. "Im not known for my calm or anything like that," Detroit coach Jim Schwartz said. "But if that hadnt got overruled, I would have had a difficult time. I might have had a conniption or whatever that is." Then there was Griffin, who finally resembled the RG3 of last year when he scrambled to make something out of nothing with a 21-yard run deep into the opponents territory with the score tied in the fourth quarter. But the ball jarred loose as Griffin stumbled forward to give himself up at the 30-yard line. The play would have been ruled dead if he had slid, something he said he would do more often this year. Because he was going head-first, it became a fumble recovered by the Lions.dddddddddddd. "Its the rule. It can be a (bad) rule, but its still one of the NFL rules, and they said its a fumble," Griffin said. "So, its unfortunate, and Ive just got to make sure if I dive forward, hold onto the ball. ... It was really unfortunate that we lost the game on two calls, two judgment calls." On the next play after Griffins fumble, Johnson started a drive with a tiptoe catch along the sideline, and David Akers ended it with a 28-yard field goal with 11:08 to play to give the Lions the lead for good. After Robinsons non-catch, Detroit got an insurance touchdown with 3:56 remaining on Staffords 11-yard pass to Johnson, who had four Redskins around him as he fought his way across the goal line. Johnson had 115 yards receiving, tying Herman Moore for the franchise record with 34 career 100-yard receiving games. Nate Burleson had 116 yard receiving, and Stafford completed 25 of 42 passes for 385 yards against a defence ranked by far at the bottom of the NFL after two weeks. Griffin completed 32 of 50 passes for 326 yards and had his fourth interception of the season, one shy of his total from all of 2012. Hes the first player in Redskins history to throw for 300 yards in three straight games, a byproduct of spending most of his time this season playing catch-up. Griffin said leading up to the game that he would run the ball more to give his team a spark, but he rushed only six times for 37 yards, including his first carry out of the zone read this season. The Redskins also scored an offensive touchdown for the first time this season, but theyre nevertheless 0-3 for the first time since 2001. "The food isnt going to taste that good tonight," Washington cornerback DeAngelo Hall said. "Still trying to wrap my head around what we can do to get better." Notes: Lions DT Jason Jones ruptured his left patella tendon in the second quarter and is out for the year, and RB Reggie Bush missed the game with a left knee injury. ... Redskins injuries: LB Brandon Jenkins (right ankle), TE Jordan Reed (bruised right knee). ...
