NBA

OKLAHOMA CITY -- Golden State sharpshooters Stephen Curry and Klay Thompson couldn't find the hoop, and the injury-depleted Thunder were giving the Warriors all they could handle.

Journeyman forward Marreese Speights came to the rescue, scoring 28 points to help the Warriors beat Oklahoma City 91-86 on Sunday night. It matched the second-highest scoring game of Speights' career and was his best total since 2009.

"Speights, again, was ridiculous," Warriors coach Steve Kerr said. "He carried the load for us offensively when we needed it."

NBA

MIAMI -- So much intrigue, crammed into 14 seconds. A pair of former Connecticut stars, going 1-on-1 as if they were willing to decide it themselves. A one-point game, one team about to end a losing streak and a tip-in try that added more drama with every bounce off the rim.

"Definitely an experience," Luol Deng said.

For the Miami Heat, a welcomed one.

BOSTON -- LaMarcus Aldridge likes the attitude the Portland Trail Blazers have during this winning streak.

Aldridge had 20 points and 14 rebounds, reserve Chris Kaman scored 16 points and the Trail Blazers extended their streak to seven games with a 94-88 victory over the Boston Celtics on Sunday night.

"I like it because I don't want guys getting caught up in the moment of seven in a row," he said. "Act like we've arrived, still in the moment, still staying hungry."

MEMPHIS, Tenn. -- Marc Gasol's dominance is making one of the NBA's best frontcourts even better.

Gasol had 30 points and 12 rebounds to lead the Memphis Grizzlies to a 107-91 victory over the Los Angeles Clippers on Sunday night. It marked the second straight game Gasol has recorded at least 30 points.

The victory left Memphis with the league's best record (12-2) behind a more aggressive Gasol, who is complementing his jumper with moves to the basket this season.

PBA aspirant Moala Tautuaa, a burly, 6-foot-7 Fil-Tongan currently plying his trade with the unbeaten Cagayan Rising Sun in the PBA D-League, is aware of the high expectations that Filipino basketball fans have for part-foreign players like him.

“Growing up, my mom told me about it,” Tautuaa told InterAksyon.com in an exclusive interview.

Tautuaa’s Filipina mother Romanita hails from Cabanatuan, and watched the PBA for many years before they moved to the US. Tautuaa’s father, Moala, Sr., never played ball but did pass on some good genes from his side of the family.

Peter June Simon scored 18 points as the Purefoods Star Hotshots defeated the Meralco Bolts, 77-74, on Sunday.

Purefoods won its third straight game in the 2015 Philippine Cup to improve to 4-3, while Meralco fell to 4-4.

MANILA, Philippines – The PBA circle, to which Manny Pacquiao belongs as the Kia Sorento’s playing coach, was one with the nation in toasting the Filipino boxing idol in his conquest of Chris Algieri in their Macau fight.

“As his colleagues in the PBA, as his fans, as his countrymen, we cannot be happier,” said PBA commissioner Chito Salud.

“Manny is victorious. Manny is safe. There is nothing more we can ask for. We can’t wait for him to come home to our country and to the PBA,” Salud added.

The Cavaliers are having a tough time fighting through adversity, according to LeBron James. David Richard/USA TODAY Sports

CLEVELAND -- With so much of the season still left to be played, it would be too early to say the Cleveland Cavaliers have hit a breaking point after a 110-93 loss to the Toronto Raptors on Saturday night dropped them to 5-7.

But LeBron James says the state of the Cavs is delicate at this early juncture.

"We're a very fragile team right now," James said after Cleveland saw an 18-point first-quarter lead turn into a 19-point fourth-quarter hole against the Eastern Conference-leading Raptors (11-2). "Well, we were a fragile team from the beginning. Any little adversity hits us, we just shell up. That's something that will come with experience."
