Rockets top Pacers in preseason game

TAIPEI, Taiwan (AP) — James Harden scored 21 points to lead the Houston Rockets to a 107-98 victory over the Indiana Pacers on Sunday in an NBA exhibition game.

Local hero Jeremy Lin added 17 points for the Rockets, who led almost throughout.

Paul George scored 19 points to lead the Pacers.

Lin, whose parents emigrated from Taiwan to the U.S. in the 1970s, was a clear favorite of the capacity crowd and did not disappoint with a dazzling array of 3-pointers and pinpoint passing.

Journeyman Walker wins Frys.com Open

SAN MARTIN, Calif. (AP) — Jimmy Walker finally won on the PGA Tour in his eighth year and 188th tournament, and with a little help from Brooks Koepka.

Tied for the lead with four holes to play Sunday, Walker rolled in a 6-foot birdie putt on the 15th hole to take the lead for good in the Frys.com Open. Three closing pars for a 5-under 66 turned out to be more than enough for the 34-year-old Texan to take home a trophy and plenty of perks.

Walker is going to the Masters for the first time, along with a trip to Maui for the Tournament of Championship. He also cracked the top 50 for the first time in his career.

Koepka’s journey around the world in a remarkable year nearly ended with a PGA Tour card.

Koepka had a four-shot lead with 11 holes to play, and the 23-year-old Floridian looked as poised and confident as he had all week at CordeValle. There was a tiny crack when he missed a 3-foot par putt on the ninth hole, and it really caught up with him at the end.

Koepka missed a 6-foot putt on the 15th that would have matched birdies with Walker, who was playing in the group ahead of him. Koepka then missed his tee shot wildly to the left on the 16th hole and had to scramble for bogey. Down to his last shot, he hit into the water on the 297-yard, par-4 17th for another bogey.
