Jo Koy draws ire for cutting through Cebu City traffic with ‘wang-wang’ The Warriors, who had lost two in a row and five of their previous eight, were already locked in to the No. 2 playoff spot in the Western Conference and working to get healthy for the playoffs, but still had Durant, Thompson and Draymond Green in the lineup against the severely depleted Suns.Phoenix was without Devin Booker (right hand sprain), T.J. Warren (left knee inflammation), Josh Jackson (right quad contusion), Marquese Chriss (hip soreness), Elfrid Payton (left knee) and Alan Williams (right knee soreness). Troy Daniels tried to play despite a sprained ankle but sat out the second half.Golden State didn’t have Stephen Curry, still recovering from left MCL sprain, Andre Iguodola (left knee soreness) and Patrick McCaw (lumbar spine contusion).The goal these last couple of games is to avoid any further health issues, Warriors coach Steve Kerr said.“But that is more luck of the draw than anything,” he said. “I am glad we got through this game in a good way health-wise and did some good things and one more to go.”ADVERTISEMENT TIP-INSWarriors: It was the eighth time that Thompson has scored at least 20 in a quarter. … Durant didn’t score a point until he made one of two free throws with 6:27 left in the half. … Warriors last loss to the Suns on Nov. 9, 2014 in Phoenix. … Warriors have won in Phoenix the last seven tries. … With the win, Golden State is 10-4 in the second half of back-to-backs this season.Suns: This was the 34th different starting lineup Phoenix has used this season. … Booker has missed the last 11 games but has not been declared out of the Tuesday night season finale. … Jackson was hurt in the team’s loss to New Orleans on Friday night.UP NEXTWarriors: At Utah on Tuesday night in regular-season finale.Suns: At Dallas on Tuesday night in last game of season.Sports Related Videospowered by AdSparcRead Next LATEST STORIES Scientists seek rare species survivors amid Australia flames MOST READcenter_img Jiro Manio arrested for stabbing man in Marikina Truck driver killed in Davao del Sur road accident P16.5-M worth of aid provided for Taal Volcano eruption victims — NDRRMC Thompson scored 19 consecutive Warriors points in the first quarter, going 9 for 11 from the field and 4 for 6 on 3s in the period.“That was a scorching first quarter,” Kerr said. “That was fun to watch. He had the arena pretty excited too every time he went up for a shot. He had it rolling.”But Golden State led only 33-29 after one. The Warriors stretched the lead in the second quarter. Durant scored on a 3-pointer — his first field goal of the game — and added a driving layup to put the Warriors up 55-41. Golden State led by as many as 18 in the second quarter and were up 64-50 at the break.The Suns never seriously challenged after that.“These are the dog days right now,” Phoenix interim coach Jay Triano said. “You can see with the number of guys we’ve got banged up. A lot of guys can’t make it through (82 games). Teams that are going into the playoffs are going through the same things.”SUNKEN SUNSPhoenix has won twice — in 28 games — since Jan. 31 and is guaranteed to finish no better than 21-61, the second-worst record in the franchise’s 50-year history. Only the 1968-69 mark of 16-66 was worse.The past three seasons, the Suns have won 23, 24 and 20 games. Highly competitive in the Steve Nash era, they will miss the playoffs for the eighth consecutive season.Phoenix has lost 31 of its last 34.

Latest: QPR 0 Southampton 0 – Saints threaten despite Ramsey’s attacking intent

first_imgChris Ramsey fielded a side full of attacking intent but it was Southampton who looked more dangerous in the opening stages at Loftus Road.Ramsey, in caretaker charge following the departure of manager Harry Redknapp, included Adel Taarabt in QPR’s starting line-up, while Matt Phillips and Armand Traore were deployed on the flanks and Leroy Fer was moved into central midfield alongside Joey Barton.However, Rangers’ Rob Green was the busier keeper early on, gathering an effort from Graziano Pelle and seeing a shot from Eljero Elia drift wide after Green had been spotted off his line.Victor Wanyama also fired wide, while at the other end Barton shot over following good work from Taarabt.Southampton were dealt a blow when young defender Matt Targett was stretchered off midway through the first half following a clash of heads with Phillips.
