Derrick White has career-high 36 points, Spurs beat Nuggets 118-108

San Antonio point guard Derrick White was screaming, flexing and stomping around the court after almost every basket against Denver. It was completely out of character for White, but the mild-mannered point guard has not been in this situation before. White had a career-high 36 points and the Spurs beat the Nuggets 118-108 in San Antonio on Thursday night, withstanding a first-half lapse to take a 2-1 lead in the first-round series. "I just had a chip on my shoulder," White said. "This is the way I've played since I was young. Just try to go out there, compete and have fun." Nikola Jokic had 22 points, eight rebounds and seven assists for Denver. Game 4 is Saturday in San Antonio, where the Spurs are 3-0 against the Nuggets this season. White attacked Denver point guard Jamal Murray from the opening tip after being on the receiving end of Murray's career outing Tuesday night. Murray had only six points, a game after scoring 21 of his 24 points in the fourth quarter to help Denver overcome a 19-point deficit to even the series. "There is no doubt in my mind that Derrick White, the last couple of days, has been reminded about Jamal Murray's fourth-quarter performance," Denver head coach Michael Malone said. "Derrick White came out like he hadn't eaten in two days. He came out hungry, he came out (ticked) off and he sent a very loud and clear message. I'm anxious to see our guys, how do we respond to that." DeMar DeRozan scored 21 of his 25 points in the second half for San Antonio. LaMarcus Aldridge added 18 points and 11 rebounds, and Rudy Gay had 11 points and 10 rebounds. 76ers 131, Nets 115: Joel Embiid took off his warm-up gear and changed into street clothes, his left knee feeling too sore to play. Even with the All-Star center sitting...

Spurs grab edge against Nuggets

San Antonio Derrick White had a career-high 36 points and the San Antonio Spurs beat the Denver Nuggets 118-108 on Thursday night, withstanding a first-half lapse to take a 2-1 lead in the first-round series. Nikola Jokic had 22 points, eight rebounds and seven assists for Denver. Game 4 is Saturday in San Antonio, where the Spurs are 3-0 against the Nuggets this season. White attacked Nuggets point guard Jamal Murray from the opening tip after being on the receiving end of Murray's career outing Tuesday night. Murray had only six points, a game after scoring 21 of his 24 points in the fourth quarter to help Denver overcome a 19-point deficit to even the series. White set his career high after being fouled by Paul Millsap on a driving layup that bounced off the side of the rim, hit the backboard and fell in to give the Spurs a 99-89 lead with 8:52 remaining. White added five rebounds, five assists and three steals while shooting 12-for-17. The point guard matched his overall career high with 26 points in the first half. DeMar DeRozan took over after that, scoring 21 of his 25 points in the second half. LaMarcus Aldridge added 18 points and 11 rebounds. White had 10 points in the opening quarter while primarily being defended by Murray. Denver's second unit dominated, turning a 31-22 deficit after the first quarter into a 38-31 advantage early in the second quarter. The Nuggets opened the second quarter shooting 7-for-8, including a pair of 3-pointers by Malik Beasley. Beasley finished with 20 points, and Gary Harris added 12 points.

Warriors, Spurs try to forget blown chances for 2-0 leads

The Golden State Warriors are trying to regain the lead in a series they probably still can't believe is tied. Same with the San Antonio Spurs, who like the Warriors know they are facing an opponent who won't stay down no matter how far they fall down. The Clippers' historic comeback against the Warriors, followed by Denver's potential season-saving surge against the Spurs, made that clear. So things are all even in those two Western Conference first-round series, which resume with a pair of Game 3s on Thursday night. Philadelphia and Brooklyn play the other Game 3 of the night in an East series that also is tied at a game apiece. Golden State would be up 2-0 if not for the Clippers' colossal comeback - or the Warriors' colossal collapse - on Monday night in Game 2. The Warriors led by 31 in the third quarter before Los Angeles charged back to win 135-131 after the biggest rally in NBA postseason history. The Warriors won Game 1 by 17, appeared headed toward an even easier win in Game 2, and yet go into Game 3 basically starting from scratch. "If you were up 30 with a quarter and a half to go, you just lose out of nowhere, it's like somebody ran up to you and punched you in the guy and ran away," Kevin Durant said. "It's shock. I don't even know how to explain it." The seventh-seeded Spurs took the series opener against a Denver team that was an NBA-best 34-7 at home during the regular season. San Antonio then was up 78-59 late in the third quarter of Game 2 before Jamal Murray's 21-point fourth quarter carried the Nuggets to a 114-105 victory. At least the Spurs, unlike the Warriors, can regroup in their home building, where the Nuggets haven't won since 2012. "It's definitely not ideal to have a lead and then blow it like that," Spurs forward LaMarcus Aldridge...

Texas man dies after killing neighbor, setting house ablaze

SAN ANTONIO (AP) - Authorities in San Antonio said a man assaulted his wife, fatally shot a neighbor and set his house on fire before dying in a hail of gunfire with police. Police Chief William McManus said the man "severely" beat his wife Tuesday afternoon, then opened fire on her as she ran away. The woman, who suffered severe facial injuries in the assault, wasn't struck by gunfire, but a neighbor was, the police chief said. McManus said the shooter set fire to his home shortly before officers arrived. Then, according to the police chief, the man "took a prone position" by lying down on his porch and opened fire with a rifle. It wasn't clear who he was firing at, but the SWAT team returned fire. McManus said the man was fatally shot, though authorities don't know whether he shot himself or was struck by the officers' gunfire. Meanwhile, 25 mph (40 kph) winds caused the fire at his home to spread to a neighbor's house, San Antonio Police Chief Charles Hood said. Firefighters couldn't immediately fight the blaze because the gunfire was ongoing. "Until that suspect is down we're not going to attack a fire," Hood said. "We don't want to become a victim." A vacant lot separated the suspect's burning house and a nearby house that caught fire. Hood said it's fortunate that vacant lot was there because "otherwise it probably would've burned this whole block down." No names have been released. Authorities said the wife is recovering in a hospital from her injuries.

Conners wins Valero days after qualifying, will play Masters

SAN ANTONIO (AP) - Corey Conners claimed his first PGA Tour victory and earned an invite to the Masters on Sunday, winning the Valero Texas Open less than a week after qualifying. Conners only entered the tournament field Monday, and he's the first golfer to win on the PGA Tour after qualifying on a Monday in nine years. He made three birdies in the final five holes, shooting a 6-under 66. He was 20-under for the tournament, winning by two shots over Charley Hoffman. Next stop for Conners: Augusta, Georgia, for next week's Masters. Hoffman, the 2016 Texas Open winner, shot 67 for 18-under on the weekend. Ryan Moore closed with an 8-under 64, a shot off the course record, and was third at 17-under. Si Woo Kim, The Players Championship winner in 2017, led the opening three rounds but dropped to a tie for fourth with Brian Stuard (15-under) after an even-par 72. Conners, the 2014 U.S. Amateur runner-up, will play in his second Masters. Two of the top three finishers last year at Augusta missed the top 10 this week. Rickie Fowler was tied for 17th while 10 strokes back at 10-under with a final-round 69, and Jordan Spieth (72) was 7-under. Stuard finished with 66 to get to 15-under. Kevin Streelman closed with an 8-under 64 and was 14-under. He missed tying the course record when, after four-straight birdies, he hit his approach from the 18th fairway into the gallery and bogeyed. It was a wild round for Conners, a Canadian who had not won on any of the PGA Tour's affiliated circuits. He had 10 birdies and four pars that sandwiched four consecutive bogeys on the front nine. He had a one-stroke lead when he rammed home a 34-foot birdie putt at No. 12, and stayed a stroke up with a tap-in birdie at the 14th. Moore joined Conners at the top of the leaderboard with an 8-foot...
