allowing them to match the record

    a 3-1 win over Swansea City at The Hawthorns on Wednesday.The Venezuelan
    frontman nodded in three times in less than 15 minutes at the start of the
    second half to put Tony Pulis men in control after a dismal first period.Wayne
    Routledge pulled one back for the visitors late, but it wasnt enough to stop all
    three points from staying in the Midlands.Both teams struggled to settle into
    the match early on and it took over half an hour for there to be any real
    goalmouth action. Nacer Chadli, on his return to the Baggies side, slid in
    Rondon after 37 minutes, but the frontmans effort was met by a spread-eagle
    Lukasz Fabianski.The hosts nearly fell behind just before the interval when
    Chris Brunt reacted too slowly to a Neil Taylor cross and nearly directed the
    ball into the back of his own net.Pulis must have given his team a rocket at the
    break because they immediately came out firing at the interval -- particularly
    Rondon.His first came on 50 minutes when he lost his marker to bullet a header
    past Fabianski from eight yards after getting onto the end of a Matt Phillips
    free-kick.Twelve minutes later he doubled his account; Brunt swept in a
    delightful cross from the left and Rondon met it at the back post, heading back
    across goal to put West Brom two up.And he completed his hat trick only two
    minutes afterwards in a carbon copy of his second, Brunt caressing a delivery in
    from the touchline and the ex-Zenit man powering a header into the top
    right-hand corner.Swansea reduced the deficit to two with 10 minutes to go as
    Routledge scruffily bundled in after Borja Bastons shot had been stopped by Ben
    Foster.But, despite a late opportunity for Baston and a point-blank save from
    Foster to stop a possible Gareth McAuley own goal, West Brom deservedly held on
    to go seventh in the Premier League.

    .J. -- New York Giants wide receiver Victor Cruz will miss
    the rest of the season after having surgery on his left knee.Steph Curry turned
    an offensive rebound into a three-point play to highlight a 10-point,
    fourth-quarter spurt as the Golden State Warriors outlasted the Oklahoma City
    Thunder 121-106 to tie the all-time NBA record for consecutive home wins. The
    Warriors second win over the Thunder in six days was their 44th in a row at
    Oracle Arena, allowing them to match the record set by the Chicago Bulls from
    March 30, 1995, to April 4, 1996. The win also capped a three-game,
    season-series sweep for the Warriors (55-5) over the Thunder (42-20). Those
    games included a 121-118 Warriors win in overtime at Oklahoma City on
    Saturday.As was the case last week, the Thunder held a fourth-quarter lead
    before the Warriors, who have recorded the best record in NBA history through 59
    games, rallied.The Warriors, who trailed by as many as nine in the third quarter
    and were down 83-82 entering the final period, took the lead for good on back-up
    guard Shaun Livingstons two free throws in the first minute of the final
    quarter.The advantage was just 99-97 before Draymond Green scored from the
    interior with 5:47 left, triggering the game-breaking, 10-0 run. Curry: Changing
    the game We look at how the Warriors star is setting a new benchmark Currys key
    play came after backcourt mate Klay Thompson had misfired on a three-point
    attempt.ddddddddddddThe NBAs reigning Most Valuable Player grabbed the rebound,
    circled back to the top of the key before changing directions and using an
    Andrew Bogut screen to get to the rim for a lay-up on which he was fouled.His
    successful free throw completed the three-point play, pushing the Golden State
    lead to 106-97 and setting the stage for a runaway finish.Curry finished with a
    game-high 33 points for the Warriors, who have won seven in a row. Almost half
    his points came on five three-pointers, although it took him 15 attempts to get
    them.Thompson added 21 points on 10-for-19 shooting, and Green contributed 14
    points, eight rebounds and seven assists to Golden States fifth consecutive home
    win over the Thunder.Kevin Durant had 32 points and Russell Westbrook 22 for the
    Thunder. ' ' '
