ATLANTA -- Kyle Korver was just ready to get out of the house and return to what he does best -- shoot 3-pointers. Air Max 97 Virgil Abloh . Missing four games with a rib injury caused Korver to delay his quest of tying the NBA record for consecutive games with a 3. "Im glad its done," he said. "It was a long period of time. I think the happiest person was probably my wife. I was just not fun to be around the last five days at the house." Korver scored a season-high 23 points and tied the NBA record for consecutive games with a 3-pointer in the Atlanta Hawks 107-97 victory over the Los Angeles Clippers on Wednesday night. Paul Millsap finished with 25 points and Al Horford added 21 to help the Hawks snap a two-game losing streak. Blake Griffin scored 24 points and Chris Paul had 19 points and 11 assists as the Clippers lost their second straight. Korver tied Dana Barros 18-year-old record by hitting a 3-pointer in his 89th straight game. Barros set the mark during stints with Philadelphia and Boston from Dec. 23, 1994, to Jan. 10, 1996. Korver began his streak last season in Atlantas second game -- a win at Oklahoma City. On Wednesday, he made his first attempt in the first minute and finished 6 for 9 beyond the arc. "The first play of the game, Korver got a 3, and that was indicative of our defence all night," Clippers coach Doc Rivers said. "We had chances to get back in the game." With 5:06 remaining, Korver drew a foul from Paul as he hit a 3 from the right corner and finished the four-point play to make it 96-83. A little over a minute later, Horford fed Korver on the left wing for a 3 that gave the Hawks a 99-88 lead. "Were all just happy to see Kyle healthy," Atlanta coach Mike Budenholzer said. "Hes a heck of a shooter and he showed that tonight." For Korver, Atlantas next game -- Friday at home against Cleveland -- will decide if he passes Barros and takes the top spot in the NBA record book. "It really is a team streak," Korver said. "Im not out there creating those shots. I dont want to make a speech, but there are a lot of people to thank." Rivers pulled his top four starters and sixth man Jamal Crawford after DeMarre Carrolls two free throws made it 103-88 with 2:54 remaining. Los Angeles was beginning a seven-game road trip and has battled several injuries early in the season. Willie Green scored nine points while starting his second straight game in place of J.J. Redick, who could miss six to eight weeks with a broken bone in his right hand and torn ligaments in his right wrist. Redick averaged 15.8 points in 17 games, tied with Crawford for the teams third-best average behind Griffin and Paul. Paul, playing his second straight game with a strained right hamstring, combined with Crawford and starting forward Jared Dudley to go 1 for 12 on 3-point attempts. Despite finishing with his 16th double-double in 18 games this season, Paul was disappointed in his teams defence. "Weve got to stop talking about it and weve got to figure out how were going to stop teams," Paul said. "I am surprised because we know what to do. Thats the tough part about it. Its not on the coaches, its on us in the locker room." The Clippers are also playing without forward Matt Barnes, who has a torn retina in his left eye. Pauls 16-footer cut the lead to 79-74 early in the fourth, but Lou Williams responded with a 3 from the right baseline on Atlantas ensuing possession, and Millsaps runner in the lane with 9:10 remaining pushed the lead back to 10. Paul put the onus on himself, Griffin and centre DeAndre Jordan to lead by example. "Part of its effort," he said. "Part of its pride. Weve got to step it up. Its a long road trip, man. This is not a good start. Youre not going to win too many games when you let the other team shoot 51 per cent from the field." The Hawks used a 22-9 run in the first quarter to go up 29-17 on Shelvin Macks runner. Los Angeles pulled within six early in the second on consecutive jumpers by Crawford, but Atlanta took its biggest first-half lead at 15 on Horfords dunk with 1:19 left in the second. NOTES: Atlanta G Jeff Teague struggled against Paul, finishing with six points, six assists, four turnovers and five fouls. ... Hawks rookie G Dennis Schroder, the NBAs 17th overall draft pick, has been assigned to Bakersfield of the development league.

First, the Red Wings scored the tying goal after officials missed the puck hitting the protective netting, then the Kings wound up losing in a shootout.

Dalton completed his only pass and led the Bengals to a touchdown in his only drive -- one that took four minutes to finish -- and the Cincinnati Bengals ended the preseason with a 27-10 victory over the Indianapolis Colts on Thursday night. http://www.airmax97outlet.it/scontate-air-max-97-bling-bling.html .

Johnson even took in the Montreal Canadiens Game 5 win over the New York Rangers at the Bell Centre Tuesday night.PHOENIX -- Working the black worked out nicely for Bronson Arroyo. Enticing Houstons aggressive hitters by throwing to the corners and out of the strike zone, Arroyo pitched seven strong innings to lift the Arizona Diamondbacks to a 4-1 win over the Astros on Tuesday. "These guys are really aggressive and young, so I dont think theyd change their approach that much," Arroyo said. "It allowed me to stay on the outer half and get a lot of groundballs." Arroyo (6-4) matched Houston starter Brad Peacock through seven innings before the Diamondbacks scored two runs off Josh Fields (1-4) in the seventh. Hill hit a sacrifice fly in the inning and Cody Ross knocked him in with a double to right-centre after an error by Astros shortstop Jonathan Villar. Hill added a run-scoring double in the eighth inning to put Arizona up 4-1. Paul Goldschmidt also homered and Addison Reed worked a perfect ninth for his 16th save. Arizona has won six of eight after its latest rally-from-a-slow-start game. "Weve been pushing on, guys staying with their approach," Diamondbacks manager Kirk Gibson said. "A lot of talking on the bench and weve made some adjustments in-game when weve had to." The Astros have been superb on the road over the past month, winning eight of their previous nine, including the series opener against Arizona Monday night. Houston had no answer for Arroyo, though, managing seven hits -- three of those by Jon Singleton -- while going 1-for-6 with runners in scoring position. "He was throwing the ball good," Peacock said. "Weve been doing a great job jumping on people, but hes one of the best starters in the game and we just couldnt get to him today." Arroyo has hit his stride since a spring-training back injury limited his effectiveness early in thee season. Air Max 97 Pull Tab Pack. The right-hander won his last outing, against Colorado last Wednesday, and has pitched well against the Astros, entering Tuesdays start 9-1 with a 2.05 ERA his last 12 starts against them. He laboured through the first two innings, working around six baserunners while throwing 42 pitches. The right-hander breezed through the next three innings before Matt Dominguez followed Singletons leadoff double by lining a run-scoring single through Arizonas drawn-in infield to tie the game at 1-all. Arroyo got some defensive help along the way, including a pair of strike-out, throw-out double plays and a nifty grab up the middle by Hill on a short-hop in the seventh inning. Arroyo allowed a run on six hits and struck out five. "Hes hitting his stride here, got on a pretty good roll," Gibson said. "He knows how to get guys out." Peacock won his previous three starts and was sharp in his first game against Arizona. Goldschmidt splashed a solo homer into the pool in right-centre off him in the first inning, but the right-hander allowed two more hits after that -- a pair of infield singles in the second. Peacock walked four and struck out three in six innings. "Peacock did a great job," Astros manager Bo Porter said. "Six innings, strong, he finally started to use the top of the strike zone, did a good job of keeping us right there." Notes: The Diamondbacks have hit a double in 23 straight games, longest since club-record 32-game streak in 2006. ... Peacock has pitched at least five innings and has yet to allow more than four runs in nine starts after opening the season in the bullpen. ...
