LOS ANGELES -- Injuries remain sore points for the Utah Jazz and Los Angeles Lakers. Fabian Moreau Youth Jersey . Both will attempt to overcome them when they meet Monday night at Staples CenterPoint guard Jose Calderon (right hamstring strain) was the latest Laker to come up lame. Calderon, who hurt himself in Saturdays loss to the Memphis Grizzlies, wont play against the Jazz. Calderon was starting for the injured DAngelo Russell (sore right knee). Russell isnt expected back for at least another week.In addition, the Lakers again will be without Nick Young (strained left calf), who is possibly on the shelf for another one to three weeks.Lakers forward Larry Nance (right knee contusion), who missed Saturdays loss to the Memphis Grizzlies, is listed as questionable for Mondays contest. Nance sat out Saturday after being injured late in Fridays rout by the Toronto Raptors.Still, the Lakers (10-12) continue to carry a positive vibe with their surprising start.Having the injuries we had, it wouldve been easy to just give in (Saturday), said Lakers coach Luke Walton said after the loss to the Grizzlies, according to the Los Angeles Times. Our guys really competed and played hard. Down the stretch they got to a couple loose balls that turned into big plays. We had our chances. On the road in the NBA, thats really all you can ask for is to have a chance to win the game.Despite some key contributors ailing, the Jazz (12-9) have won five of their last six games. Their latest triumph was a 105-98 decision over the Denver Nuggets on Saturday. Utah almost blew a 23-point lead in the fourth quarter before securing the victory. Gordon Hayward scored 21 of his 32 points in the third quarter to pace the Jazz. It was the third straight game the 6-8 forward has topped 30 points.I found some energy after halftime, said Hayward, who leads the team in scoring at 22.8 points per game, according to DeseretNews. com. I think we really started to guard. I was able to get some easy shots, some open looks and then the basket gets a little wider when you knock down a couple in a row.Utah prevailed without point guard George Hill (toe) and forward Derrick Favors. Hill wont play against the Lakers, missing his third game in a row, but could return Tuesday night when the Jazz plays the Phoenix Suns.Hills production has been missed. He is scoring 20 points per game, second to Hayward. He also is shooting 53.4 percent from the floor and 45.6 percent from 3-point range.Favors has been troubled with a knee problem for much of the season. He missed the previous nine games and is expected to return against the Lakers.Forward Alec Burks also has been unavailable for Utah. Burks underwent arthroscopic ankle surgery in November and is out indefinitely.The absences havent hurt the production of center Rudy Gobert. Gobert is averaging 10.6 points and 11 rebounds per game (seventh in the NBA). Gobert is the league leader in field-goal percentage at 64.2. He is third in blocks with an average of 2.52.Utah won the initial encounter 96-89 on Oct. 27 at Salt Lake City. Samaje Perine Womens Jersey .

NEW YORK -- Carmelo Anthony made the most of a second chance in the clutch.Anthony scored a season-high 35 points, including the tiebreaking jumper with 3.1 seconds left in overtime, and the New York Knicks beat the Charlotte Hornets 113-111 on Friday night.Honestly, I wanted that shot, Anthony said. I wanted that moment to be honest with you. I felt like I had an ample opportunity to close it in regulation.Derrick Rose added 16 points and blocked Kemba Walkers 3-pointer that would have won it just before the buzzer.I rushed it, Walker said. I could have gotten a better shot I think. I should have taken my time more. They made a great defensive play.Kristaps Porzingis also scored 16 points in the Knicks sixth straight home victory.Former Hornets guard Courtney Lee finished with 12 points in the opener of a home-and-home series.Marco Belinelli scored 19 points, Nicolas Batum had 18 and Walker added 17 for the Hornets, who have lost four straight games.Porzingis 3-pointer from the corner gave New York a 111-109 lead before Michael Kidd-Gilchrist tied it on a backdoor layup. Anthony then made a fadeaway jumper after previously missing a potential game-winning elbow jumper in regulation.When I missed that one, I had a good look at it, Anthony said. I felt like I could get that same look again off of a different move rather than facing up, put the defender on my back and make him make a decision after that.Charlotte took its largest lead of the game at 70-57 in the third quarter. New York responded with a 22-4 run to take a 79-74 lead heading into the fourth. Anthony had 11 points in the third quarter.Anthony scored 16 points in the first quarter on 6-for-8 shooting from the field.TIP-INSHornets: Coach Steve Clifford made the case for Walker to become an All-Star this season. I thought he couldve been an All-Star last year, Cliffford said. Montae Nicholson Womens Jersey. I think if our record were better at the All-Star break, I would think he wouldve been the next guy that didnt make it. He had a terrific year last year and hes playing even better this year. If youre around him every day, he plays well because of the right things. He deserves it. ... Walker passed Alonzo Mourning for third place on Charlottes career free throws made list. ... Marvin Williams sustained a hyperextended left knee in the third quarter and didnt return.Knicks: Coach Jeff Hornacek attributed Porzingis rising shooting percentage to natural growth and playing within the system: I like what KP is doing. Hes not trying to force a lot of things. Hes playing within the game, Hornacek said. When hes rolling then theres a time when he may take one that they call `heat checks or ill-advised shots, but a lot of times hes making those. Hes really growing in his game and hes finding out where he can get his opportunities. ... Lance Thomas (sore left ankle) and Marshall Plumlee were inactive.LOSING LEEClifford, on Lees departure as a free agent: Our problem was, frankly, we had six free agents and they all played well. When we sat down by the time, which was the first day we signed Nicolas (Batum), the second day we signed Marvin (Williams), there was no way we were going to have enough money for those guys. We had really enough for two and Al (Jefferson), Jeremy (Lin) and Courtney all made a lot more money. We couldnt have gotten any of those guys. He played great for us. If you look at our record after we picked him up, hes a terrific player. Hes the ultimate dependable, pro, intelligent player.UP NEXTHornets: Host New York on Saturday.Knicks: Visit Charlotte on Saturday. Cheap NFL Jerseys Cheap NFL Jerseys ChinaCheap Jerseys From China Cheap NFL Jerseys Authentic Wholesale Jerseys China Cheap NFL Jerseys China NFL Cheap Jerseys ' ' '
