NEW ORLEANS -- After many of his teammates were dressed and walking to the bus outside New Orleans Arena, Jermaine ONeal sat in the visitors locker room, still in uniform, with large packs of ice wrapped around his legs and a slight smile on his face. With the short-handed Warriors needing help from someone -- anyone -- to stop a three-game skid, ONeal returned from right knee and groin injuries that had sidelined him for four games and put up season highs with 18 points and eight rebounds. It was just enough to help lift Golden State to a 102-101 victory over the New Orleans Pelicans on Tuesday night. "I had a rough six or seven days, hadnt been able to practice, had a viral infection, the groin injury, the knee injury, and I just felt like sometimes when your back is against the wall you just go out there and have fun, enjoy it," the 17-year pro said. "I prayed about it and just went out there and did what Ive been doing for so many years, just playing the game." ONeal made his first seven shots and finished 9 of 12 from the field, including the Warriors final basket on a baseline hook that made it 102-99 with about 2 minutes left. Eric Gordon had a chance to win it for New Orleans with an open 3-pointer from the left corner in the final seconds, but the shot rimmed out as the crowd, which was on its feet, started to cheer and then suddenly groaned. Anthony Davis couldnt quite reach the rebound, and Stephen Curry, who had left Gordon alone to offer help defence on Jrue Holidays drive moments earlier, might have been the most relieved player on the court after watching Holiday instead zip a pass to the corner. "Im sure theyd knock that shot down nine out of 10 times," Curry said. "Thankfully, this is the only time he missed it." Pelicans coach Monty Williams expressed considerably less gratitude. "Eric gets a wide-open look, and it goes down and comes out," he said. "This game is cruel. Its a cruel game." Klay Thompson scored 22 points and tied a career high with eight assists for the Warriors, who were without suspended centre Andrew Bogut, as well as several injured players, including swing man Andre Iguodala (strained left hamstring) and guard Toney Douglass (stress reaction, left tibia). David Lee scored 19 points, capped by two big free throws with 2:34 left. Curry struggled to find his usual accuracy, missing 13 of 20 shots, but scored seven of his 16 points in a tight fourth quarter for Golden State. Harrison Barnes added 14 points. "These games are character builders for us because were trying to do something special," ONeal said. "Not every game is going to be easy for us. Were going to have nights like tonight where guys like myself are going to have to step up." Ryan Anderson had 21 points and 12 rebounds for New Orleans. Davis finished with 14 points and 11 rebounds. New Orleans appeared to be seizing momentum when Davis dunk on a pick-and-roll feed from Tyreke Evans tied it at 93. Golden State called a timeout and responded with ONeals 11-foot turnaround jumper and Thompsons 3. Holiday, who had 17 points, responded with a 3 and the Pelicans eventually pulled to 100-99 when Davis tipped in an alley-oop pass as he was fouled by Curry. After ONeal scored the go-ahead basket, Davis once again pulled the Pelicans within a point with his vigorous, one-handed putback jam of Evans miss. Then each club missed its final shot, leaving New Orleans just short of overcoming what had been a 15-point deficit in the second quarter. Gordon finished with 16 points for the Pelicans, who have lost two straight. Jason Smith had 14 points and Evans 12. "We have a lot of heart," Holiday said. "That hurt, though." After being deemed fit in pregame warmups, ONeal quickly converted a driving dunk, a layup and a turnaround jumper from 9 feet. Late in the opening quarter, Curry hit a layup and a 15-foot jumper in succession, sparking an 11-0 run that Marreese Speights capped with a tip-in to give Golden State a 28-18 lead at the end of the period. The advantage grew to 45-30 on Thompsons 3 before New Orleans, which shot below 40 per cent much of the first half, trimmed it to 57-49 at halftime.

CC Sabathia Yankees Jersey .com) - No Sidney Crosby, no problem.CORTINA DAMPEZZO, Italy -- Swiss skier Lara Gut mastered a windy super-G Sunday in the final World Cup speed race before the Sochi Olympics, rediscovering the form that helped her win three straight races to open the season. For her fifth victory of this campaign -- but the first since Lake Louise, Alberta, in early December -- Gut clocked 1 minute, 27.81 seconds down the Olympia delle Tofane course. Tina Weirather of Liechtenstein finished second, 0.12 seconds behind, and Maria Hoefl-Riesch was third, 0.61 back, to maintain her lead in the overall World Cup standings. "Its important to think about skiing and not the result," Gut said. "At the start of the season there was talk about the overall and all those things and I couldnt think about skiing. "I just have to ski the way I can, then I can have a good result," Gut added. "Today it was just me and the slope." This race concluded a run of four speed events in four days, and Weirather was a contender each day. Her results were fourth, second, third and second. "Im proud of my consistency and the ability to perform well in every race," said Weirather, the daughter of champion skiers Hanni Wenzel and Harti Weirather. "Thats something new for me." A combination of strong wind and a tough course, set by Tina Mazes coach, Mauro Pini, led to 19 racers failing to finish. Light was also a factor, as the sun ducked in and out of clouds. Olympic champion Andrea Fischbacher of Austria crashed and slammed into the safety netting but got right back up and skied down without major injury. Maze, who won Saturdays downhill, finished fifth.dddddddddddd The tailwind was so strong when Hoefl-Riesch came down that the German was nearly blown off course over the final jump. Hoefl-Riesch landed outside the blue lines painted onto the snow to help guide skiers and had to rapidly change direction to clear the last gate. "I was just happy when I went over the finish line because it was a hard fight for me on the bottom," Hoefl-Riesch said. Other skiers were slowed by a headwind as the conditions constantly shifted, at times making the banner hanging over the finish line billow in the wind. When the winds finally calmed down, it enabled Marusa Ferk of Slovenia to finish 11th with the No. 49 bib. Chemmy Alcott of Britain, the next skier down, placed 23rd for her first World Cup points since rejoining the circuit this week after leg surgery. The top Americans were Stacey Cook in 13th and Julia Mancuso in 16th. In the overall standings, Hoefl-Riesch holds a 128-point lead over Weirather. In the super-G ranks, Gut leads by 38 points over Weirather with only one more super-G remaining -- at the World Cup finals in Lenzerheide, Switzerland, in March. The womens circuit moves to Kranjska Gora, Slovenia, for a giant slalom and slalom next weekend -- the final events before the Sochi Games open Feb. 7. Gut will be a threat in multiple events in Sochi. She said shes most excited about giant slalom but shell also be a contender in downhill and super-combined. "Im going to try to be like Bode (Miller) in the super-combined at the Olympics," Gut said. ' ' '
