Warriors ahead of pace

OAKLAND, Calif.—Klay Thompson got an earful from Draymond Green for his two-game total: 80 points and one assist.

Stephen Curry dished out the grief, too.

“He’s such a ball hog,” quipped Curry, who also is dishing off to Thompson at every chance.

Good thing Thompson’s shots are falling for Golden State.

Blackhawks clinch playoff spot

Vancouver’s march to the draft lottery continued yesterday as the Canucks lost their eighth-straight game—falling 3-2 to the Chicago Blackhawks after a late go-ahead goal from Andrew Ladd.

Ladd scored the game-winner with just over two minutes to go in the third period as the visitors salvaged a critical win while keeping the Canucks at the bottom of the Western Conference standings.

Canada’s Carey beats Finland’s Kauste 7-1

SWIFT CURRENT, Sask.—The mental game is everything at the women’s curling world championships.

Canada’s Chelsea Carey took advantage of a series of misplays by Finland’s Oona Kauste for a 7-1 win in seven ends yesterday in Draw 14 of the international event.

Carey’s win came hours after she herself missed a game-winning shot in an upset loss to South Korea.

Raptors clinch playoff spot

BOSTON—The Toronto Raptors lost a game but clinched a playoff spot anyway.

Isaiah Thomas scored 23 points, Evan Turner added 17 and the Boston Celtics beat the Raptors 91-79 last night. Toronto clinched its third consecutive post-season berth moments later thanks to a 115-107 loss by Chicago to the New York Knicks.

That was little consolation for Raptors coach Dwane Casey.

Rangers grab opener in OT

A former Fort Frances Laker helped move his new team one step closer to facing his old gang.

John Cuni fed Tyler Lindstrom for the game-winner at 4:26 of overtime as the Minnesota Iron Rangers nipped the English River Miners 3-2 in Game 1 of their SIJHL first-round series last night in Ear Falls.
