NEW ORLEANS -- After many of his teammates were dressed and walking to the bus outside New Orleans Arena, Jermaine ONeal sat in the visitors locker room, still in uniform, with large packs of ice wrapped around his legs and a slight smile on his face. Kyle Williams Bills Jersey . With the short-handed Warriors needing help from someone -- anyone -- to stop a three-game skid, ONeal returned from right knee and groin injuries that had sidelined him for four games and put up season highs with 18 points and eight rebounds. It was just enough to help lift Golden State to a 102-101 victory over the New Orleans Pelicans on Tuesday night. "I had a rough six or seven days, hadnt been able to practice, had a viral infection, the groin injury, the knee injury, and I just felt like sometimes when your back is against the wall you just go out there and have fun, enjoy it," the 17-year pro said. "I prayed about it and just went out there and did what Ive been doing for so many years, just playing the game." ONeal made his first seven shots and finished 9 of 12 from the field, including the Warriors final basket on a baseline hook that made it 102-99 with about 2 minutes left. Eric Gordon had a chance to win it for New Orleans with an open 3-pointer from the left corner in the final seconds, but the shot rimmed out as the crowd, which was on its feet, started to cheer and then suddenly groaned. Anthony Davis couldnt quite reach the rebound, and Stephen Curry, who had left Gordon alone to offer help defence on Jrue Holidays drive moments earlier, might have been the most relieved player on the court after watching Holiday instead zip a pass to the corner. "Im sure theyd knock that shot down nine out of 10 times," Curry said. "Thankfully, this is the only time he missed it." Pelicans coach Monty Williams expressed considerably less gratitude. "Eric gets a wide-open look, and it goes down and comes out," he said. "This game is cruel. Its a cruel game." Klay Thompson scored 22 points and tied a career high with eight assists for the Warriors, who were without suspended centre Andrew Bogut, as well as several injured players, including swing man Andre Iguodala (strained left hamstring) and guard Toney Douglass (stress reaction, left tibia). David Lee scored 19 points, capped by two big free throws with 2:34 left. Curry struggled to find his usual accuracy, missing 13 of 20 shots, but scored seven of his 16 points in a tight fourth quarter for Golden State. Harrison Barnes added 14 points. "These games are character builders for us because were trying to do something special," ONeal said. "Not every game is going to be easy for us. Were going to have nights like tonight where guys like myself are going to have to step up." Ryan Anderson had 21 points and 12 rebounds for New Orleans. Davis finished with 14 points and 11 rebounds. New Orleans appeared to be seizing momentum when Davis dunk on a pick-and-roll feed from Tyreke Evans tied it at 93. Golden State called a timeout and responded with ONeals 11-foot turnaround jumper and Thompsons 3. Holiday, who had 17 points, responded with a 3 and the Pelicans eventually pulled to 100-99 when Davis tipped in an alley-oop pass as he was fouled by Curry. After ONeal scored the go-ahead basket, Davis once again pulled the Pelicans within a point with his vigorous, one-handed putback jam of Evans miss. Then each club missed its final shot, leaving New Orleans just short of overcoming what had been a 15-point deficit in the second quarter. Gordon finished with 16 points for the Pelicans, who have lost two straight. Jason Smith had 14 points and Evans 12. "We have a lot of heart," Holiday said. "That hurt, though." After being deemed fit in pregame warmups, ONeal quickly converted a driving dunk, a layup and a turnaround jumper from 9 feet. Late in the opening quarter, Curry hit a layup and a 15-foot jumper in succession, sparking an 11-0 run that Marreese Speights capped with a tip-in to give Golden State a 28-18 lead at the end of the period. The advantage grew to 45-30 on Thompsons 3 before New Orleans, which shot below 40 per cent much of the first half, trimmed it to 57-49 at halftime. NOTES: Golden States Draymond Green had a career-high three blocked shots. ... The Warriors play the second of their four-game road swing Wednesday night in Dallas. ... The Pelicans lost for the first time at home in five games. Manny Lawson Bills Jersey . The 2005 Paris champion won five straight games in the first set to rally from a 3-1 deficit, hitting 12 winners to only three for Verdasco. Berdych then broke the Spaniard twice for a 5-2 lead in the second set but wasted four match points to let Verdasco level at 5-5. Ronald Darby Bills Jersey . -- The Jacksonville Jaguars have released veteran guard Uche Nwaneri, who started 63 of the teams last 64 games and didnt miss a snap last season. HAMILTON, Ont. -- The CFLs Tiger-Cats reached a 20-year lease agreement with the city of Hamilton for the use of the new Tim Hortons Field on Thursday. The $145.7-million stadium is set to open this season with the Ticats scheduled to play their first regular-season home game there July 26 versus expansion Ottawa. The agreement, which will see the CFL club commit upwards of $30 million over the term, was approved by civic officials Wednesday night. "The Tiger-Cats are beyond excited to enter this 20-year partnership with the City of Hamilton," Ticats owner Bob Young said in a statement. "We are making a significant investment, but the opportunity to play at Tim Hortons Field is transformative for our business and puts the team in position to be successful for years to come. Adolphus Washington Bills Jersey. . "We look forward to working with our partners at the City towards the shared vision of our communitys brand-new, world-class facility." The stadium will also be home for the soccer competition of the 2015 Pan American Games. "Were thrilled about this partnership with the Hamilton Tiger-Cats, which will benefit the city, our taxpayers, as well as the Ticats," Hamilton major Bob Bratina said. "The agreement mitigates risk for taxpayers and will create hundreds of new jobs. "This is truly a win for both the City and the Ticats."
