LAKE BUENA VISTA, Fla. --Edmond Sumners free throw with 0.3 seconds left in overtime gave the Musketeers an 83-82 win over Missouri in the opening round of the Tire Pros Invitational on Thursday. He was fouled after Xavier inbounded near midcourt, after a heady timeout that Macura called to give his team a chance to set something up at the end.Sumner was fouled by Missouris Terrence Phillips as both went for the ball along the sideline on the deciding play. He missed the first one short, then rattled in the second for the win.Frankie Hughes scored 24 points for Missouri (1-1), and Kevin Puryear finished with 22 points and 10 rebounds. Phillips scored seven of his 21 points in overtime for Missouri, which never got off a desperation shot after Sumners deciding free throw.I think he was just being aggressive, Missouri coach Kim Anderson said. Im sure hed love to take it back, but you know what? He made a lot of great plays to get us to where we were, so if it wasnt for that it wouldnt come down to that play.Missouri led by 10 in the first half and held the lead most of the second half, but needed to scramble both late in regulation and then from an early five-point deficit in overtime. Missouri went on a 7-0 run late to grab the lead, but Macura made two free throws with 17.8 seconds remaining to tie the game for the 15th and final time.A great basketball game, first of all, Anderson said. I thought our guys did a lot of great things and played one of the top 10 or 15 teams in the country toe-to-toe.BIG PICTUREXavier: It was the second time in three games that the Musketeers were put to the test -- they beat Lehigh 84-81 to open the season last week. ...

OAKLAND, Calif. -- The Golden State Warriors get an opportunity to exact some revenge for the first time this season when they host the Los Angeles Lakers in the opener of a three-day, home-and-home series Wednesday night.The club also meet Friday night in Los Angeles.The Warriors will take a 12-2 record into the doubleheader, having won eight in a row since a shocking 117-97 drubbing at the hands of the Lakers at the Staples Center on Nov. 7.It appears the early wakeup call was just what the Warriors needed. The two-time defending Western Conference champs have rebounded to win eight straight, including four in a row on a just completed Eastern swing.After being held to a season-low 97 points in the loss to the Lakers, the Warriors have responded with an average of 120 points during their winning streak.The impressive offensive run has propelled Golden State into the league lead in scoring (117.1) and assists (30.9) per game.The Warriors led the NBA in both categories last season -- albeit it with lesser numbers (114.9 points, 28.9 assists) -- en route to their record 73-win season.Weve been great on the road the last three years, Warriors guard Klay Thompson told reporters after Mondays 120-83 win at Indiana. We want to keep that mentality and carry this momentum back home.Were looking forward to facing this Lakers team that beat us.Golden State will welcome a key piece of their historic run back to Oracle Arena on Wednesday night when they duel for a second time -- the first time at home -- with their former assistant coach, Luke Walton.Walton, who led the Warriors to thheir 24-0 start last season while Steve Kerr was recovering from back surgery, is now the coach of the Lakers.ddddddddddddWaltons presence and the three resulting high draft picks following 27-, 21- and 17-win seasons have made the Lakers one of the leagues most improved teams.With 2014 first-round pick Julius Randle averaging 13.3 points and a team-leading 8.1 rebounds, and 2015 first-rounder DAngelo Russell contributing 16.1 points and a team-high 4.8 assists, the Lakers have vaulted from the NBAs worst offense last season (97.3 ppg) to the leagues third-best (109.9).Even 2016 first-round pick Brandon Ingram has started to get into the flow, having scored in double figures three times in the last six games after just one in his first nine outings.Ingram came off the bench to score 11 in a 111-109 home win over the Oklahoma Thunder on Tuesday night in a game in which Russell sat out to rest a sore knee and Randle was limited to 21 minutes by a sore hip.Russell is not expected to play Wednesday in Oakland, either.The Lakers (8-7) are on the road Wednesday after an inconsistent homestand in which they lost two of four. Theyve dropped three of five overall, having allowed an average of 117.2 points in those games after holding four of their first 10 opponents -- including Golden State -- under 100.That didnt stop Walton from delivering a message to his club before heading north.Theyre probably the ones that are a little nervous right now, he said.
