Clarkson (40), streaking Jazz win showdown vs Simmons, 76ers

Jordan ClarksonJordan Clarkson scored a season-high 40 points to send the streaking Utah Jazz past the Philadelphia 76ers 134-123 in a matchup of conference leaders Monday night despite a career-best 42 points from Ben Simmons.

Clarkson hit a career-high eight 3-pointers and Donovan Mitchell added 24 points to help the Jazz overcome an early 14-point deficit. Utah (23-5) has won eight straight games and 19 of 20.

Philadelphia (18-10) was minus big man Joel Embiid, a late scratch because of back tightness. Playing without his All-Star running mate, Simmons had 12 assists and nine rebounds barely missing a triple-double. He easily topped his previous best of 34 points set on Dec. 7, 2019.

Tobias Harris scored a season-high 36 points for the Sixers in a fast-paced game between championship hopefuls.

Simmons scored eight straight points in the fourth quarter to cut the Jazz lead to 110-104 with 8:40 left. Minutes later, he found Harris for a 3 to get Philadelphia within 113-109.

Jordan Clarkson set his career scoring high for a game that ended in regulation. He had 42 points in a three-overtime loss to Brooklyn on Feb. 13, 2019.

Embiid scratched after coming out to warm up, and coach Doc Rivers express surprise he wasn’t playing UFA.

The Jazz scored 10 straight points as part of an 18-4 run to take their first lead in the second quarter and went up 67-59 on Bojan Bogdanovic’s jumper in the lane. Clarkson was the primary driver of the surge with 21 first-half points to help Utah build a 72-66 halftime lead.

How an elbow to the face sparked Michigan basketball’s big rally at Wisconsin.

The turning point in Michigan basketball’s 67-59 win at Wisconsin on Sunday afternoon involved an outstretched elbow and Mike Smith’s face.

With just over 18 minutes remaining and the Wolverines trailing by 10, Smith went up to contest Brad Davison’s layup.

Davison’s attempt missed. But his left elbow did not, connecting squarely with Smith’s head.

Michigan is senior point guard went down in a heap on his own baseline. His head coach, Juwan Howard, objected — and was called for a technical foul.

Up until that moment, it had been that type of game for the Wolverines, who were playing their first contest in 23 days and looked predictably rusty. They trailed by 12 at halftime and seemed in danger of being blown out in Madison, Wis.

Michigan

Then Smith caught Davison‘s elbow and the tide turned UFA.

“I think we were trying to have the fire lit already,” said freshman center Hunter Dickinson. “I think we were trying to come out there at the beginning of the second half with that fire but I think we came together after the foul and really said, ‘This is our time. This is the run we have to go on right now in order to come back and win this game.’ ”

“Tough win versus a very good team in Wisconsin. Winning a game like this on the road does a lot. It says a lot about the character of this group.”

Trayce Jackson-Davis had 10 points and 14 rebounds for Indiana (11-8, 6-6 Big Ten). Hunter, who did not play in Indiana’s previous two games due to a coach’s decision, finished with seven points.

Curry leads Warriors to 114-91 victory, ending Spurs’ streak.

SAN ANTONIO

SAN ANTONIO (AP) Even after three NBA championships and two MVP awards, Stephen Curry has never looked better to his coach.

Curry scored 32 points and the Golden State Warriors dominated San Antonio 114-91 on Tuesday night, snapping the Spurs’ three-game winning streak.

”This is the best I’ve ever seen him, just from a confidence and strength standpoint. ”Two-time MVP. I don’t think I’ve ever seen him look better.”

”I worked my butt off over the offseason,” Curry said. ”I’m just happy to be playing. I feel strong. I feel in rhythm, in ultimate control of my game. Shots are falling. ”

”Man, I have to go back in the fault for that,” Warriors veteran Draymond Green said. ”That was nice. It was very close to an (Michael Jordan) little flip. That was a good one for sure. That was up there.”

‘Nothing high flying or above the rim about that,” Curry said. ”I’ll take that recognition.

Golden State ended a five-game losing streak in San Antonio. Eric Paschall had 15 points and Andrew Wiggins added 14 for the Warriors.

It was the Spurs’ final home game before embarking on their annual nearly month-long road trip while the city’s Stock Show & Rodeo is held at the AT&T Center.

After blowing a 14-point lead in a 105-100 loss to San Antonio on Monday, Golden State did not let up in the second night of a back-to-back.

The Spurs received a spark off the bench with Lyles scoring nine points in the first half after entering the game with 3:21 left in the opening quarter. Lyles, who was averaging 10.8 minutes in 12 games this season, played 26 minutes.

The Spurs were without injured starters Derrick White and LaMarcus Aldridge, who has a sore right hip.
