(TSX / STATS) -- The ex-wife of former NBA player Lorenzen Wright was arrested in California on Friday night in connection to his 2010 murder.

Sherra Wright-Robinson was charged with conspiracy, first-degree murder and criminal attempt first degree murder, the Memphis Police Department said Saturday.

Wright-Robinson has a court date on Monday in Riverside, Calif., according to jail records obtained by the Memphis Commercial Appeal.


Rockets beat Spurs for 12th straight win

(TSX / STATS) -- HOUSTON -- Play-making and defensive wizardry have long been foundational characteristics for Houston Rockets guard Chris Paul.

So much so that his ability to score frequently gets so lost in the shuffle that when he showcases that skill, observers are often stunned.


Thunder outlast 76ers in 3OT thriller

(TSX / STATS) -- PHILADELPHIA -- Russell Westbrook proved once again that he can dominate a game even when his shot is off.

Westbrook's drive and pinpoint pass to Andre Roberson for the winning basket late in the third overtime lifted the Oklahoma City Thunder to a thrilling, triple-overtime 119-117 win over the Philadelphia 76ers Friday night at the Wells Fargo Center.


Jazz stun Celtics after 2 starters hurt

(TSX / STATS) -- BOSTON -- With two starters lost to injury in the first half and playing one of the NBA's best teams, the Utah Jazz seemed destined to suffer their 10th straight TD Garden loss on Friday night.

No Rudy Gobert. No Derrick Favors. No problem.


Bulls beat Bucks, win streak reaches 5

(TSX / STATS) -- MILWAUKEE -- Less than two months have passed since Bobby Portis and Nikola Mirotic fought each other on the floor of the Chicago Bulls' practice facility, leaving Mirotic sidelined with a fractured face.

Now that duo is powering the Bulls through their best stretch of the season.


Lowry gets triple-double as Raptors roll

(TSX / STATS) -- TORONTO -- The way Toronto Raptors coach Dwane Casey put it, he gave his point guard Kyle Lowry two minutes to complete his triple-double in the 120-87 rout of the Brooklyn Nets on Friday night.

Lowry needed one rebound to complete the 11th triple-double of his career -- and nine with the Raptors -- and got it early in the fourth quarter before being removed from the game.


Pistons fend off comeback by Pacers

(TSX / STATS) -- INDIANAPOLIS -- Detroit Pistons coach Stan Van Gundy insisted the thought never crossed his mind about how his team blew a 22-point lead in a collapse last month at Bankers Life Fieldhouse.

But as the Indiana Pacers rallied late once again, quickly cutting a 16-point deficit to just two in the final quarter, Pistons players admittedly experienced deja vu, at least for an anxious moment or two.


Down 18, Nuggets rally by Pelicans in OT

(TSX / STATS) -- DENVER -- Will Barton missed a chance to give the Denver Nuggets a win five days ago, but he atoned for it with a dominant overtime performance against New Orleans.

Barton scored 11 of his 19 points in the extra time in his return to the lineup and the Nuggets rallied from 18 points down to beat the Pelicans 117-111 on Friday night.


Lillard, McCollum lead Blazers by Magic

(TSX / STATS) -- ORLANDO, Fla. -- Damian Lillard never got worried during the Portland Trail Blazers' five-game losing streak, so why should he get stressed when the other team is making a late run?

Lillard scored 21 points and CJ McCollum added 20 as the Trail Blazers held off a late Orlando Magic challenge for a 95-88 victory on Friday.


Wizards finish strong to get by Clippers

(TSX / STATS) -- WASHINGTON -- Mike Scott did not imagine he would play or shoot at this level in his first season with the Washington Wizards. He is not alone. The forward simply credits the hard work he puts in every day.

Scott matched his season-high with 22 points off the bench and Bradley Beal had 20 points and 11 rebounds as the Washington Wizards overcame their latest uneven performance for a 100-91 win over the Los Angeles Clippers on Friday night.
