able, you cant give up a 3-1 lead in the third," Jam from baibai's blog

NEW ORLEANS -- James Harden capped a 26-point performance with a tiebreaking jumper with 28 seconds left, and the Houston Rockets held on for their third straight victory, 103-100 over the reeling New Orleans Pelicans on Wednesday night. Marcus Peters Rams Jersey . Eric Gordon scored a season-high 35 points, but the Pelicans lost their seventh straight. Terrence Jones scored 23 and Dwight Howard added 12 points, 11 rebounds and three blocks for the Rockets, who trailed by as many as 17 in the second quarter and by eight with about four minutes to go. Harden had a hand in 12 of Houstons final 17 points, scoring 10 and assisting on Howards alley-oop dunk. Anthony Davis added 24 points for New Orleans, his sixth straight game with 20 or more, but Darius Miller missed a potential tying 3 in the final seconds.

Chandler Parsons who had 17 points, then made one of two free throws for the final margin. The Rockets made things difficult for themselves by missing 16 of 41 free throws, and won despite leading for only 1:14 the entire game. The Pelicans led by 12 early in the third quarter after Davis jump shot, but Davis then committed three fouls in the span of 1:34, giving him four for the game and prompting coach Monty Williams to bring his star forward to the bench. Less than four minutes after Davis left the game, his former Kentucky teammate, Jones, tied the game at 68. But New Orleans managed to regain momentum, thanks to a pair of 3s by Gordon, and led 81-74 heading into the final period. With New Orleans missing three top players in Ryan Anderson, Jrue Holiday and Tyreke Evans, the stage appeared set for an easy Houston victory. It appeared it could be another long night for the Pelicans when Howard took an alley-oop lob from Harden and slammed it home with two hands on the opening play of the game. Yet New Orleans wound up dominating the first quarter on both ends of the court, from Smiths crowd-pleasing block of Parsons driving dunk attempt to Davis windmill jam and his 14-foot jumper as he was fouled. Gordon had 14 points, including a pair of 3s, in the first quarter, and New Orleans led 30-19 when the period ended. Gordon scored 22 points before halftime, and New Orleans took its largest lead when Al-Farouq Aminu scored five straight points on a 3-pointer and two free throws to make it 44-27. The Rockets were back within 51-43 when Hardens no-look, behind-the-head pass set up Donatas Motiejunas easy layup. But Davis responded with a jump hook, Gordon added a free throw and New Orleans led 56-45 at halftime.

Cammalleri scored two goals, Corban Knight netted the winner in a shootout, and the Flames erased a two-goal deficit in the third period to beat the Stars 4-3 on Friday night. It was the first home game for Dallas since forward Rich Peverley collapsed on the bench Monday because of an irregular heartbeat. "Its kind of something that weve been doing pretty well as of late," Cammalleri said. "Whatever the score is coming into the third period and putting out all that we have and trying to keep going and stick with what were trying to do. Sometimes youre rewarded." The Stars blew a valuable point in their bid to hang on to the final playoff spot in the Western Conference, and they werent happy about it. But the loss was secondary to another step toward getting back to the business of hockey. The first was a 3-2 overtime win at St. Louis, the top team in the NHL, a night after Peverleys collapse. The second was seeing their teammate for the first time at practice Thursday. And then came Friday, when he surprised them by showing up in the locker room before they returned to the bench four nights after he collapsed there early in a game against Columbus and had to be revived in a nearby tunnel. The game was postponed. "It brings a smile to your face to see him here at the arena and around the guys," forward Erik Cole said. "Hopefully, it was good for him to be around the guys. We enjoyed seeing him and just to hang out with him." The 31-year-old Peverley, who was diagnosed with atrial fibrillation in training camp, is out for the season. He will soon undergo a procedure designed to correct the condition. Peverley got a standing ovation when he was shown on the video board, briefly waving from a suite but mostly clapping with a stoic look both times he was shown. A fan held a sign that said "Heart of a champion" with Peverleys No. 17 outlined in red by the shape of a heart. One of the linesmen, Pierre Racicot, clapped at centre ice while the crowd roared, and the Stars banged their sticks on the boards in front of the bench, a universal clapping sign in hockey. They were doing the saame thing Monday, but then it was a frantic attempt to get the attention of game officials after Peverley collapsed. Ndamukong Suh Rams Jersey. "It was awesome that the crowd gave him a great ovation," forward Jamie Benn said. "There were probably 20 smiling faces on the bench banging our sticks for him." With the Flames trailing 3-1 with 7 minutes left in regulation, Calgarys Paul Byron lifted a shot past goalie Tim Thomas from in front late in a power play. Cammalleri then got behind Thomas and stuffed in a loose puck for his second tying goal of the game with 4:30 remaining. "On both goals, we got on the wrong side of the man," Stars coach Lindy Ruff said. "We had some problems defensively. We spent more time in our zone than we needed to. We lost some battles." The Flames had most of the best chances in overtime, and Sean Monahan kept them alive in the shootout by slipping a shot between Thomas pads after Jordie Benn started the final round by scoring for the Stars. Calgarys Joey MacDonald, playing for the first time since Nov. 1 after getting sent to the minors, stopped Tyler Seguin to start the first extra round of the shootout. Knight easily beat Thomas with a wrist shot to prevent Dallas from winning a season-high fourth straight game. "Joey MacDonald has been very good for us since the start," coach Bob Hartley said. "He was sent down but he never said a word, kept working, and he played a big, big part in our win." Jamie Benn put Dallas ahead 2-1 with his career-high 27th goal of the season when he won a faceoff and headed for the front of the net. Seguin sent a pass through the crease to Trevor Daley, who found Benn alone with MacDonald out of position. A little more than 2 minutes later, Cole redirected a shot from Brenden Dillon past MacDonald for a 3-1 lead. "This time of year with these points being so valuable, you cant give up a 3-1 lead in the third," Jamie Benn said. "We were lucky to get one point." NOTES: Peverley is headed to Cleveland this weekend and will have his first visit with doctors on Monday before having the procedure. ... Stars C Cody Eakin missed the game with a lower body injury.
