WEST LAFAYETTE, Ind. — Glenn Robinson III wanted this win more than any other.
Michigan coach John Beilein put the opportunity squarely in his hands.
After Beilein took his final timeout, the sophomore forward caught an across-the-court lob pass in the right corner, spun away from a defender and rolled in a mid-range bank shot as the buzzer sounded to give No. 16 Michigan a 77-76 overtime victory on his father’s former home court.
“My teammates knew how much this game meant to me with my dad playing here and being from Indiana,” Robinson said. “It feels great.”
For the Robinson family, it was bittersweet.
Gelen Robinson, a soon-to-be Purdue football player, was in the crowd, cheering for his older brother. So was Glenn’s father, the former Boilermakers star and No. 1 overall NBA draft pick, who celebrated with his son in the semi-private Mackey Arena tunnel as he watched his favorite fans leave in stunned silence.

CLEVELAND — With his team in trouble, DeMar DeRozan flashed his All-Star form at the finish.
DeRozan scored 16 of his 33 points in the fourth quarter, and the Toronto Raptors won for the sixth time in seven games with a 99-93 victory over the injury-riddled Cleveland Cavaliers on Tuesday night.
“DeMar was huge down the stretch,” Toronto coach Dwane Casey said. “He made shots, he made plays, he made some free throws.”
DeRozan also made a key defensive play with the Raptors leading 94-91 and 32 seconds remaining. He stole a pass from Spencer Hawes by knocking Tyler Zeller to the floor and then made two free throws for a five-point lead.
“I don’t have too many of those left in me,” DeRozan said of the hard hit. “I kind of anticipated that.”
Terrence Ross hit a 3-pointer with 3:02 remaining to put Toronto ahead 90-89. DeRozan dunked on a baseline drive and added two free throws to give the Raptors a 94-91 lead with 1:23 remaining.

AUBURN HILLS, Mich. — Samuel Dalembert had more offensive rebounds than Andre Drummond, Greg Monroe and Josh Smith combined.
That was probably the most telling stat from Saturday’s game, which Dalembert’s Dallas Mavericks won 113-102 over a Detroit team hurt throughout the night by Drummond’s foul trouble. Dirk Nowitzki scored 24 points and Vince Carter added 18 for Dallas.
“If you’re able to get them in foul trouble early, they kind of slow things down a little bit and become less aggressive,” Dalembert said. “We knew what we were getting into, and we were ready for the fight.”
Dallas had surprising success on the boards against Detroit’s imposing front line. The Mavericks finished with 16 offensive rebounds. The Pistons, who came in as the NBA’s top team in that department, had only nine.

Warriors clamp down on Pistons in 104-96 win PDF Print E-mail

AUBURN HILLS, Mich. — Stephen Curry didn’t shoot all that well — and Golden State won anyway.
The Warriors figure that’s a good sign at the start of a lengthy road trip.
“It’s not necessarily going to be flash and fun every night,” Golden State’s Jermaine O’Neal said. “If we’re going to have a chance to really compete for a championship, these are the types of games you’re going to have to win in the playoffs. We have a fairly young team and these games like this build the character and the image of the team.”
Curry had 19 points, nine assists and eight rebounds, and the Warriors clamped down on the Detroit Pistons in the second half of a 104-96 victory Monday night. Klay Thompson scored 19 points for Golden State, which has won four in a row. The Pistons have lost five of seven since firing Maurice Cheeks and replacing him with interim coach John Loyer.
Curry went 6 of 15 from the field and was only 3 of 9 from 3-point range, but he repeatedly found teammates for open shots on the perimeter.

CLEVELAND — The Washington Wizards lost Nene to a knee injury, and then won the game with a strong effort on defense.
John Wall scored 21 points, Bradley Beal had 17 and the Wizards beat the Cleveland Cavaliers 96-83 on Sunday night.
Washington had a 66-63 lead midway through the third quarter when Nene departed with a sprained left knee. The Wizards then held the Cavaliers to 11 fourth-quarter points to return to .500 at 28-28 on the season. They also strengthened their hold on the fifth spot in the Eastern Conference standings.
“We’re a team right now that’s just trying to play the right way and get on a roll,” Wall said.
Nene had eight points, four rebounds and four assists in 21 minutes. He was coming off one of his best games with the Wizards, when he had a career-high 30 points in Saturday’s win over New Orleans, including the game-winning dunk with less than a second left.
