PHOENIX (AP) - Lonzo Ball barely missed a triple-double with 29 points, 11 rebounds and nine assists in his second NBA game and the Los Angeles Lakers held on to beat the Phoenix Suns 132-130. The Suns had a chance to tie it with 1.2 seconds to play, but T.J. Warren missed the first of two free throws. That meant he had to miss the second intentionally and hope for a rebound, but the Suns couldn't get a decent shot off before the buzzer.

NEW ORLEANS (AP) - Klay Thomspon scored 31 points, Stephen Curry added 28 and the Golden State Warriors easily erased a 15-point first-half deficit en route to a 128-120 victory over the New Orleans Pelicans. Kevin Durant added 22 for the Warriors, who won for the first time this young season after dropping their opener to Houston. New Orleans is still looking for its first victory after two games. Anthony Davis had 35 points and 17 rebounds for the Pelicans, while fellow big man DeMarcus Cousins added 35 points.

NEW YORK (AP) - Oakland running back Marshawn Lynch has been suspended for one game without pay by the NFL for shoving a game official during the Raiders' victory over Kansas City on Thursday night. Lynch was ejected from the game after he shoved line judge Julian Mapp.

LOS ANGELES (AP) - The Los Angeles Dodgers are headed to the World Series with a high-priced team that won 104 regular-season games and rampaged through the NL playoffs with only one loss. But the players and coaches believe they're winning because they're a team in the fundamental sense. Clayton Kershaw will start the World Series opener on full rest after the Dodgers finished off the Cubs.

CHICAGO (AP) - Corey Seager is expected to be in the Los Angeles Dodgers' lineup for the opener of the World Series after missing the NL Championship Series because of back pain. Seager, an All-Star shortstop, watched from home as the Dodgers eliminated the defending World Series champion Chicago Cubs in Game 5. Manager Dave Roberts says Seager is "doing everything he can to get healthy" and the Dodgers "expect him back for Game 1."

ANAHEIM, Calif. (AP) - Derek Grant scored the first two goals of his NHL career and the Anaheim Ducks scored three goals in a 97-second span of the third period during a 6-2 victory over the Montreal Canadiens.

They had scored just two goals in their previous two games before shredding Montreal goalie Carey Price.

SOUTH BEND, Ind. (AP) - No. 11 Southern California visits. No. 13 Notre Dame for a showdown on Saturday night.

Josh Adams has 776 rushing yards and is averaging 9.02 yards per carry for Notre Dame's fifth-ranked rushing offense.

Buddy Hield and Zach Randolph each had 13 points, and rookie point guard De'Aaron Fox added nine points and 10 assists as the Kings bounced back from an opening loss to the Houston Rockets.
