Hawks send Cavs to first loss

CLEVELAND — Dennis Schroder scored a career-high 28 and the Hawks handed the Cavaliers their first loss of the season, 110-106 on Tuesday night.

Cleveland (6-1) cut a 96-81 deficit early in the fourth quarter to 101-97 on LeBron James' basket with 3:14 to play. The Hawks scored the next six, but 3-pointers by James and Kyrie Irving made it 106-103 with 48 seconds left.

Paul Milsap's basket pushed the lead to five, but Kevin Love converted a three-point play with 25 seconds remaining. Bazemore's jumper from the corner with seven seconds left put the game away.

Bazemore scored 25 points while Millsap added 21. Dwight Howard, who received four stitches for a bloody lip in the first half, had 17 rebounds.

Irving led Cleveland with 29 points. Love added 24 while James, who scored two points in the first half, had 23.

SPECIAL MARK FOR CURRY: Stephen Curry let it fly from the top of the arc, backpedaled as his record-breaking 3-ball dropped and then wildly began bobbing his head and shuffling his feet with the swagger of a two-time reigning MVP. Add another remarkable achievement to a long list of them for Curry: most 3-pointers in one game. The guard sank 13 to set an NBA mark and the host Warriors beat the winless Pelicans 116-106 on Monday. "This was a special night," Curry said. "It probably won't last too long, the way guys shoot in this league.'' Curry, who scored 46, shared the previous 3-point record of 12 with Kobe Bryant and Donyell Marshall.

AROUND THE LEAGUE: Pacers forward Paul George was fined $15,000 for inadvertently kicking the ball into the stands during a victory over the Bulls. Upset with the officiating, he said he intended to kick the ball into the basketball stanchion and joked that his soccer skills were not as good as he thought. The ball hit a fan, who was not injured.

  3. Four key games that could decide Bucs' success in 2017

    Blogs

    The Bucs finished so close to making the playoffs in 2016 -- literally flip-flop the last two results and have them beat the Saints and lose to the Panthers and they're in as a wild card with the same 9-7 record -- that it's difficult to say with any certainty what will happen in the 2017 season.

    Bucs quarterback Jameis Winston, shown celebrating a touchdown against the Giants in 2015, will face New York again this fall in Week 4 in Tampa.
  4. Frank Deford wrote with sincerity, giving depth to complicated sports figures

    Human Interest

    Frank Deford practically invented the notion of multimedia: He exported his voice to radio, TV and film, and if you didn't know him you might have thought he was an actor, because he wore purple suits and looked like Clark Gable. But Frank, who died Sunday at age 78, was a writer above all things, and an important …
