first_img First Published: 27th October, 2019 16:19 IST “We’re a work in progress,” Gentry said. “I loved the effort that we played with and thought we did a really good job. We put ourselves in a position to win against a really good team.” FOLLOW US “I know nowadays getting a triple-double seems normal, but I take a lot of pride and a lot of energy and sacrifice and a lot of things I do off the floor to get ready to compete and play at a high level,” Westbrook said. “For me, that’s a great accomplishment, especially growing up and never thinking I would be able to play in the NBA. Now, I’m able to be in the history books. It’s a blessing, and I don’t take it for granted.” Westbrook hit two clutch free throws to give Houston the three-point lead with 6.1 seconds remaining. Josh Hart missed a 3 at the buzzer and Houston held on. Houston worked through occasional chemistry issues, frequently turning the ball over on errant passes. Westbrook and Harden combined for 12 turnovers, with Harden leading the game with eight. Harden was 2 of 18 from the 3-point line after going 1 for 8 in the season opener. He was 8-for-29 from the field, but was 11 of 12 from the free throw line. Harden shrugged off the shooting woes. “I’m going to take as many shots as they give me,” Harden said. “Tonight, they didn’t fall. But the most important thing is, we’ve got to win. I think we locked in defensively when we needed to get stops. It’s slowly coming together.” On Westbrook, D’Antoni complimented his poise and how nothing fazes him, calling the guard “relentless.” Similarly, Pelicans coach Alvin Gentry called Westbrook the Energizer Bunny for his unwavering energy. “The people that say, ‘How are they going to fit or how are they going to do?’ When you’re great players, you find a way to make it work, and they’re great players,” Gentry said. The Rockets bounced back after a 117-111 season-opening loss to Milwaukee on Thursday night.Brandon Ingram gave Houston’s defense fits, scoring 35 points while adding a game-high 15 rebounds. Lonzo Ball had 18 points on 4 of 9 shooting from 3. New Orleans is off to its first 0-3 start since the 2016-2017 season. Russell Westbrook said he’ll take some time to reflect on the significance of his latest performance. After posting his second straight triple-double since joining the Houston Rockets and the 139th of his career, Westbrook passed Magic Johnson for second on the all-time list, behind only Oscar Robertson’s 181. Westbrook had 28 points, 13 assists and 10 rebounds and James Harden had 29 points to lead the Rockets to a 126-123 win over the New Orleans Pelicans. The Pelicans were without point guard Jrue Holiday, who is day-to-day with a left knee sprain. Hart started in Holiday’s place, scoring 23 points in 34 minutes. The Pelicans are already without top draft pick Zion Williamson, who is expected to miss the first six to eight weeks of the season after undergoing arthroscopic surgery to repair the lateral meniscus in his right knee. For the last play of the third quarter, Westbrook found Austin Rivers for a corner 3 to cut New Orleans’ lead to 100-97 entering the fourth quarter.The Rockets opened up the final quarter on an 8-0 run, capped off by a thunderous two-handed dunk by Westbrook in transition to put Houston up 105-100. The Rockets led 29-24 at the end of the first quarter, but the Pelicans had a better second quarter and entered halftime tied at 61. In the final play of the first half, Harden was unable to cleanly get a 3 off at the buzzer in a heavily defended shot attempt. After the horn sounded, Harden slammed the ball off the court in frustration, only for it to come back hit him in the mouth.

first_imgA disastrous weekend for Nigerian and South African clubs in the CAF Champions League ended with all four representatives eliminated at the last 32 stage.Nigerians Kano Pillars fell to Moroccans Moghreb Tetouan despite a 2-1 second-leg victory through a late Rabiu Ali goal.Tetouan took a four-goal advantage into the return match and Mouhcine Iajour was the star of the tie, scoring a hat-trick in Morocco and another goal in Nigeria.Two-time champions Enyimba clung to a one-goal first-leg lead against Egyptians Smouha in Mediterranean port Alexandria until five minutes from time.But relentless pressure on a Nigerian outfit reduced to 10 men by the red-carding of Kingsley Sokari eventually told and they conceded two late goals.Hani Al-Egeizi converted a penalty and Hermann Kouao snatched the tie-clinching second goal in the final minute for the Champions League newcomers. Early exits are becoming uncomfortably common for both clubs with Pillars making a preliminary-round departure last year and Enyimba joining them on the 2014 scrapheap after the last-32 stage.South Africans Mamelodi Sundowns were also unable to defend a one-goal advantage on foreign soil, as they crumbled 3-1 at Democratic Republic of Congo giants TP Mazembe.Goals from Zambian Rainford Kalaba, Tanzanian Mbwana Samata and Ivorian Roger Assale gave Mazembe control just before the hour mark in Lubumbashi.And the nationalities of the scorers illustrated the multi-country make-up of a Congolese side bankrolled by mining magnate Moise Katumbi.Substitute Percy Tau scored six minutes from time for Sundowns, another club led by a mining billionaire. Emerging Nigerian star Ighodaro Osaguona bagged a brace to earn Moroccans Raja Casablanca a 2-0 home win over Soweto outfit Kaizer Chiefs.Tall, thin and sporting a mohican haircut, Osaguona punished the tiring South Africans with a goal after 87 minutes and added another four minutes into stoppage time.A 50 000-plus flag-waving, singing crowd in the Stade Mohamed V created a wonderful atmosphere, but there was little goalmouth action during a cagey clash.Osaguona also scored the only first-leg goal and is joint leading Champions League scorer this season with Iajour on five.Ghanaians Asante Kotoko disappointed for the second successive season, losing 2-1 at home to Algerians El-Eulma after forcing a goalless first-leg draw. Having struggled to fund the trip to Congo Brazzaville, Kenyans Gor Mahia bowed out after a second 1-0 loss to AC Leopards with Cesaire Gandze scoring in both legs.Zambians Zesco United offered brave resistance against Guineans Kaloum in Bamako before losing a penalty shootout when Jackson Mwanza fired his spot-kick wide.Both Cameroonian clubs fell with Cosmos Bafia and Coton Sport suffering two-goal defeats away to Tunisians Esperance and Congolese Sanga Balende respectively.–Follow Gary on Twitter: @garyalsmithlast_img read more
