ATLANTA---The Atlanta Hawks overcame
37 points by Portland s LaMarcus Aldridge
to extend their franchise-record winning
streak to 18 games with a 105--99 victory
over the Trail Blazers on Friday night.
The balanced Hawks had six players score
in double figures. Paul Millsap had 21 points,
Al Horford finished with 17 and Kyle Korver
scored 16. Mike Scott went 3 for 3 from 3-
point range and finished with 11 points in
Portland led after each of the first three
quarters but couldn t stretch the advantage
to more than six points. The Blazers have
lost four of five.
Aldridge also had 11 rebounds. Wesley
Matthews scored 16 points, and Damian
Lillard added 13 points and 11 assists.
Atlanta outscored Portland 36--25 in the
Cavaliers 101, Kings 90
Kevin Love had 23 points in Cleveland s
ninth consecutive victory, and LeBron James
scored 19 in his return from a one-game
Kyrie Irving finished with 21 points for
the Cavaliers in his first game since he scored
55 against Portland on Wednesday.
James returned after the win against the
Blazers with a sprained right wrist. He was
7 for 16 from the field in 33 minutes, but
made five straight shots as Cleveland put
the game away early in the fourth quarter.
A team trainer placed a brace on James
wrist in the third, which he wore the remain-
der of the game.
DeMarcus Cousins, who was added to
the Western Conference All-Star team Fri-
day, had 21 points and 13 rebounds in Sacramento s
eight consecutive loss.
Pelicans 108, Clippers 103
Eric Gordon scored a season-high 28 points, and
the Pelicans snapped the Clippers six-game winning
With power forward Anthony Davis sitting out
because of his sore left groin, the Pelicans benefited
from exceptional shooting from behind the 3-point
line, hitting 13 of 25, and at the foul line, where they
made 23 of 26 free throws, including their last 17.
Ryan Anderson, starting for Davis, scored 24 as
New Orleans won for the fifth time in six games.
Chris Paul had 24 points for Los Angeles, while
Blake Griffin added 19 and DeAndre Jordan had 12

WELLINGTON---Grant Elliott scored 64 not out
and took 3--26 in an all-round performance which
led New Zealand to a seven-wicket win over Pakistan
with ten overs to spare yesterday s first of two one-
Ross Taylor made 59 and Martin Guptill 39 as New
Zealand reached 213--3 in the 40th over in reply to
Pakistan s 210, cruising to a victory which further
heightens expectations of a strong showing by the
co-hosts in the upcoming World Cup.
Guptill struggled in the just-completed seven-
match series against Sri Lanka, making three ducks,
but made a welcome return to form, as did Taylor,
who had averaged a mediocre 28 in that series.
Shahidi Afridi scored 67 off 29 balls and captain
Misbah-ul-Haq made 58 in an otherwise poor batting
performance by Pakistan.
Elliott s performance again underscored the quality
of New Zealand s all-rounders which may be a sig-
nificant asset when the World Cup begins. He was
a contentious inclusion in the 15-man World Cup
squad but has more than vindicated his selection
with 194 runs against Sri Lanka, including a century
in the third ODI.
His handy bowling also added to the depth of New
Zealand s attack. The Black Caps leading seam bowlers
performed well, taking wickets and restricting Pakistan
early, then the all-rounders made their vital contri-
bution as Pakistan s innings ended in the 46th over.
Pakistan lost opener Mohammad Hafeez to the
fifth ball of its innings and struggled to 32--3 in the
12th over before Misbah staunched the flow of wickets
and began to repair the innings.
After Pakistan slumped further to 127--6, Misbah
joined Afridi in a counter-attacking partnership of
71 for the seventh wicket.
With little realistic chance of limiting New Zealand s
run-rate below four per over, Pakistan needed to
bowl the hosts out to win the match, but its attacking
intent caused it to give up too many runs too quickly,
and Taylor and Elliott shared an unbroken 112-run
stand to record a comfortable victory.
The teams meet in the second international at
Napier on Tuesday. (AP)
