They just came and took the game from us.”Hornets guard Nic Batum left the game in the second quarter with a left elbow contusion and did not return. Batum missed the first 12 games of season with a torn ligament in the same elbow.Clifford offered no update on Batum’s injury.If Batum is unable to go, Lamb would return to the starting lineup and rookie Malik Monk would likely see additional playing time.Along with the steal and layup in overtime, Lamb made some big shots for the Hornets with Batum out of the game. That’s become par for the course this year.Lamb is averaging 16 points per game this season, while shooting a career-best 41.3 percent from 3-point range. He’s never averaged more than 10 points per game in his previous five seasons and never shot better than 35.6 percent from beyond the arc.“I just try to make plays,” Lamb said. “Kemba has a lot on his shoulders the whole game so I try to help him on the offensive end at the end of the game because they trap him and I’m left open so I just try to knock down those shots.” Japan ex-PM Nakasone who boosted ties with US dies at 101 Stronger peso trims PH debt value to P7.9 trillion QC cops nab robbery gang leader, cohort Typhoon Kammuri accelerates, gains strength en route to PH Hornets coach Steve Clifford said “nine points in this league — as good as these guys are— is not that big of a deal.”The Hornets battled back behind the gritty play of Kemba Walker and Jeremy Lamb, who each finished with 24 points.Walker made a driving layup with 17 seconds left and then added two free throws with 2 seconds remaining to tie it. Howard blocked Beal’s baseline jumper at the end of regulation to send the game into overtime.Charlotte carried the momentum into the extra period with Walker knocking down a leaning 3-pointer from the top of the key after a scramble for a loose ball. Lamb followed with a block and a coast-to-coast layup for a 5-point lead.Michael Kidd-Gilchrist added a driving layup and Lamb buried a jumper from just beyond the foul line to push the lead to six with 1:24 remaining. But the big basket came when Howard grabbed air-ball from Lamb out of the air and laid it in to beat the shot clock.ADVERTISEMENT Brace for potentially devastating typhoon approaching PH – NDRRMC Kris Aquino ‘pretty chill about becoming irrelevant’ LeBron gets stitches, scores 23 in fourth as Cavs beat Nets Washington Wizards guard John Wall, left, drives into Charlotte Hornets guard Kemba Walker in the first half of an NBA basketball game in Charlotte, N.C., Wednesday, Nov. 22, 2017.

IPL 2011: Kings XI Punjab vs Delhi Daredevils- KXIP win by 29 runs

first_imgPaul Valthaty came up with a fine all-rounder performance as Punjab beat Delhi by 29 runs during their IPL match at the Himachal Pradesh Cricket Association Stadium in Dharamsala on Sunday. Score | PhotosValthaty not only scored a fine 62 but also claimed Delhi batsman Irfan Pathan.Chasing 171, Delhi got off to a good start against Punjab with openers David Warner and Naman Ojha scoring in boundaries. Ojha was especially brutal on Shalabh Srivastava, hitting him for a four and two sixes in the sixth over of the innings.But eventually it was Srivastava, who broke their stand in the eight over by getting rid of Ojha on 28. An outside edge off Ojha’s bat was pouched by skipper Adam Gilchrist behind the stumps on 52/1.There was more cheer for Srivastava in the 10th over when he scalped the other opener David Warner on 29. Warner charged down the track in an attempt to hit Srivastava past the boundary, but didn’t get the ball of the sweet spot of the bat and it looped high in the sky before being easily pouched by Gilchrist on 67/2.In the 12th over Punjab leg spinner Piyush Chawla struck to despatch Sridharan Sriram cheaply to reduce Delhi to 72/3. But Chawla hadn’t finished as yet and in the 14th over he struck again to send back Delhi’s in-form batsman Venugopal Rao on 16, reducing Delhi to 90/4.Paul Valthaty, who scored a fine 62 in the first innings, came around to do some more damage. He scalped the same man who had claimed his wicket during the Punjab innings. A short ball saw Irfan Pathan hit out in the deep to Mandeep Singh when the team total was 92.advertisementNext, it was the turn of Delhi skipper James Hopes to take a walk back to the dug out. He became Chawla’s third victim when Delhi were batting on 97.New man Travis Brit, too did not stay for too long and was sent back Praveen Kumar on 116/7.Delhi could only managed to score 141/8 in their stipulated 20 overs and ended up losing the match by 29 runs. Punjab inningsPaul Valthaty and Shaun Marsh put 102 runs for the second wicket as Punjab scored a fine 170/6 against Delhi.Earlier, Delhi captain James Hopes won the toss and elected to field in the 60th IPL match of the season. Delhi managed to get a wicket in the fourth over when their South African paceman Morne Morkel got rid of captain Adam Gilchrist when the score was 21.Glichrist wanted to slog the ball past the boundary but failed to connect properly and gave a catch to David Warner at mid-on.Post the early setback, Punjab’s Aussie batsman Shaun Marsh and the other opener Paul Valthaty got on with a partnership helping the team to 70/1 in 10 overs.The two batted steadily as the Punjab run rate gradually climbed to more than eight an over. The duo put 102 runs for the second wicket before, Delhi paceman Irfan Pathan got rid of both on consecutive balls in the 15th over.First Pathan got the better of Marsh on 46 with an away moving ball that took the top edge of his bat to fall in Morke’s hands when the team total was 123.On the very next ball, Pathan’s ball entered Valthaty’s bat-pad gate to crash against his stumps on 62. His 50-ball innings that included six fours and three sixes finally came to an end on the third ball of the 15th over.An over later, Aavishkar Salvi claimed David Hussey cheaply and Punjab were 138/4.
