BEIJING -- Canadas Kevin Koe was in a four-way tie for third place at the world mens curling championship after splitting his games Sunday at Capital Indoor Stadium. Koe dropped a 9-6 decision to Japans Yusuke Morozumi in the early draw before improving to 2-1 with a 9-6 victory over Chinas Rui Liu. "Obviously its a long week, but you dont want to get yourself behind the eight-ball early, so obviously it was important to get some stuff figured out," said Canadian third Pat Simmons. "It was a good, gutsy win for us, for sure." The Calgary-based rink opened the tournament Saturday with a 6-3 win over Denmark. Norways Thomas Ulsrud and Germanys John Jahr led at 3-0 after five draws. Canada was tied with Japan, Switzerland and Sweden at 2-1. China picked up a steal of one in the fourth end when Koes open takeout attempt overcurled. Canada pulled even at 3-3 with a deuce in the fifth and stole three points in the sixth end when Lius draw was wide. Koe added a deuce in the eighth end and one more point in the 10th for the victory. "Thats big," Koe said. "I mean, you dont want to get 1-2 this early in the week. It (would) be a long week, for sure." Teams are still adjusting to the ice conditions in the warm, humid Chinese capital. There have been some uncharacteristic misses over the first weekend of competition, such as Koes mistake in the fourth end against China. "I didnt think I threw it too bad in the fourth," said Koe. "Sometimes you throw it and you think you know what itll do and it still doesnt do that. So thats frustrating. Were used to a little more out of ourselves, so we just have to realize that its tough for both teams and we have to stick with it." The Canadian icemaking tandem of Hans Wuthrich and Greg Ewasko have had some challenges -- including a contaminated water supply -- in their effort to create top-flight conditions. "You just have to accept that theres going to be some nuances on each sheet," Simmons said. "If you can get control of the game and make the other team play those hard shots, then its obviously a big advantage. "We were able to do that and make him shoot against a few of our rocks the one end (the seventh) and we were lucky enough to get the steal. Yeah, well take it." The Czech Republic, Russia, China and the United States were 1-2 while Denmark and Scotland remained winless at 0-3. The Canadians will play Russia and the Czechs on Monday. Koe won gold in his only previous appearance at the world championship, taking top spot at the 2010 tournament in Cortina DAmpezzo, Italy. Canada has won gold three of the last four world championships. Jeff Stoughton was victorious in 2011 in Regina and Glenn Howard won at Basel, Switzerland in 2012. Devin Hester Bears Jersey .

George Hill took care of the early work, scoring a season-high 26 points, and Paul George closed it out by scoring 11 of his 26 points during a decisive second-half stretch that finally allowed Indiana to pull away from Minnesota 98-84 for yet another win.CHARLOTTE, N.C. - After two disappointing losses, the Charlotte Bobcats bounced back in a big way. Al Jefferson scored 28 points and two others finished with more than 20 as the Bobcats routed the Portland Trail Blazers 124-94 on Saturday night. Kemba Walker added 26 and Gerald Henderson 23 for Charlotte, which posted season bests in points and margin of victory to snap a two-game losing streak. "Its a good win for us, and a good bounce back," Bobcats coach Steve Clifford said. "Theyre an exceptional offensive team, but you could tell our guys were ready to play from the start of the game. When guys came in off the bench, they were ready as well." The Bobcats shot 52 per cent from the field (49 of 94), outscored the Trail Blazers in the paint 54-32 and held a 50-36 rebounding advantage over Portland, which had won its last four games against Charlotte. But the Trail Blazers, playing without leading scorer LaMarcus Aldridge, could never get on track against the Bobcats, trailing by as many as 34 points late in the second half in losing for the first time in their last three games. "Thats when were at our best," Jefferson said. "If you look at all the big wins weve had, especially at home, we had a great start. You could tell in shootaround today that we were focused, we were locked in and we knew that we needed this win tonight." Damian Lillard scored 20 points, Dorell Wright added 17 and Wesley Matthews 15 for Portland, which shot 40.5 per cent (34 of 84) and made just 9 of 27 3-pointers. That allowed the Bobcats to bolt to an early double-digit lead, extend it to as many as 26 points late in the first half, then weather a half-hearted Trail Blazers comeback attempt early in the third quarter. "They shot the ball well, passed the ball well, rebounded the ball well, defended well and basically outplayed us," Portland coach Terry Stotts said. "We certainly could have played better, but they were clicking on all cylinders. "You dont want to just dismiss it as one of those games. You want to learn from it. But losing by 30 points, we dont have the luxury not to play better." Down 69-46 at the half, the Trail Blazers cut Charlottes lead to 17 points three times in the third quarter, the last aat 77-60 on Matthews layup with 6:22 left.dddddddddddd But Jefferson hit a jumper, followed by a 3-pointer by Walker to push the Bobcats lead back past the 20-point mark, and Portland never challenged again. Charlotte took its biggest lead of the game in the final two minutes behind its reserves, with Jannero Pargos 3-pointer with 1:22 remaining putting the Bobcats ahead 122-88. Behind Jefferson, Walker and Henderson, who combined for 48 points, Charlotte put together two of its best quarters this season in taking command of Saturdays game. After missing its first two shots of the game, the Bobcats hit 11 straight — four by Jefferson, three by Michael Kidd-Gilchrist, and two each from Henderson and Walker — to pull ahead 23-9 with 5:03 remaining in the first quarter. "We wanted to double Big Al and take away his post-ups," Lillard said. "Sometimes we didnt even get a chance to double him, and hes already scoring or making good passes out of the post. We were just scrambling the whole time." The Trail Blazers cut the Bobcats lead to 10 points four times late in the quarter, the last at 31-21 on Mo Williams jumper with 54 seconds remaining, and were down 11 points at the end of the quarter. But Charlotte opened the second quarter with 11 unanswered points, with Josh McRoberts two free throws with 10:03 left putting the Bobcats up 42-22, their first 20-point lead of the half. Charlotte took its biggest lead of the half at 26 points late in the second quarter, with Jeffersons layup with 1:43 left capping a 10-3 run for a 67-41 bulge. "Were going to have a good chance to win if all three of us are playing well offensively," Henderson said, referring to Jefferson and Walker. "Were not always going to score that every night, but if we can play the kind of defence that we did tonight, we should have a good chance to win." Notes: Stotts had no update on the return of Aldridge, who leads the team in scoring (23.4 points) and rebounding (11.1 per game). He has missed Portlands last five games with a low back contusion. ... The Bobcats (34-36) are in seventh place in the Eastern Conference standings, 1 1/2 games ahead of Atlanta (31-36) and 1 1/2 games behind sixth-place Washington (36-33) with 12 games remaining.
