U.S. trails at halftime, rallies past Turkey in World Cup game

Kenneth Faried of the Denver Nuggets scored 22 points, Anthony Davis of the New Orleans Pelicans had all of his 19 in the second half and the United States rebounded from a rare deficit at halftime to beat Turkey 98-77 on Sunday in the FIBA Basketball World Cup in Bilbao, Spain.

A night after beating Finland by 59 points in its biggest rout ever while using NBA players in the former world championship, the Americans couldn’t take control against Turkey until early in the fourth quarter.

They trailed 40-35 at halftime and Turkey led by six early in the third quarter before the Americans could finally get the game into the quicker tempo they prefer and pull away to take the rematch of the 2010 gold-medal game in Istanbul, which the United States won 81-64.

Source: Rockets to deal for Terry

A person with knowledge of the trade says the Houston Rockets will acquire guard Jason Terry in a deal with Sacramento.

Terry, 36, is a graduate of Franklin High in Seattle. He has a 15.4 career scoring average.

The source spoke on condition of anonymity because the trade had not been completed.

Houston will also receive two second-round draft picks. The Rockets will send swingman Alonzo Gee to the Kings, along with at least one other nonguaranteed-contract player.

Terry started last season with Brooklyn and averaged 4.5 points in 35 games. He was dealt to Sacramento at the trade deadline and didn’t play for the Kings as he recovered from a knee injury.
