Rams hold off Bucs

ST. LOUIS—Rams’ players saw the signs, heard the chanting, noticed the volume was turned up.

The effort was inspired on what could have been the final home game for the franchise in St. Louis.

“It was a great atmosphere,” quarterback Case Keenum said after the Rams beat the Tampa Bay Buccaneers 31-23 last night.

Warriors rebound from loss

OAKLAND, Calif.—Luke Walton nearly had finished drawing up a play when Stephen Curry chimed in: run one for Klay.

Walton obliged­—and so did Klay Thompson.

“I stepped in. I need to be a little quicker,” Curry noted. “I raised my hand.

“We got a bucket on it, too. It worked.”

There were so many buckets, in fact, Thompson couldn’t remember that exact one.

Giants hold off Dolphins

MIAMI—With the score tied in the fourth quarter, Odell Beckham Jr. somehow slipped five yards behind the secondary.

That turned out to be the winning margin for the N.Y. Giants.

Beckham’s 84-yard touchdown reception put the Giants ahead to stay with 11 minutes to go as they forged a three-way tie atop the NFC East by beating the Miami Dolphins 31-24 last night.

Raptors blow huge lead against Pacers

INDIANAPOLIS—Jordan Hill and Monta Ellis helped Indiana pull off a big come-from-behind win with hopes of getting the Pacers back to their winning ways.

Hill had season highs of 20 points and 13 rebounds, while Ellis added 18 points, as the Pacers beat the Raptors 106-90 last night to snap Toronto’s four-game winning streak.

“We have our ups-and-downs sometimes,” Hill noted.

Oilers win again

BOSTON—The Edmonton Oilers weren’t trying to hide it.

They knew they were lucky to get out of town with a victory.

Andrej Sekera scored 41 seconds into overtime, and Cam Talbot stopped 47 shots, to lift the Oilers to a 3-2 win over the Boston Bruins last night.

It was Edmonton’s sixth-straight win.
