His 3-pointer with 30 seconds left
gave the Angels 6-point cushion at
the close of the third after a 25-14
run that brought the overall score to
81-95. Angels rolled on to conclude
the final quarter after an 18-19 spurt
that sealed their victory at 98-89 at

Warriors 95, Trail Blazers 90
In Portland, Klay Thompson scored
29 points, including a go-ahead jump

Arrasate with the Basque club struggling in the Spanish league.
Sociedad made the announcement a
day after losing 1-0 at home to
Malaga, leaving it with one win
through 10 rounds.
That win was a 4-2 comeback to
beat current leader Real Madrid in
round two.
Sociedad also failed to advance
from a playoff to the Europa League
group phase to start its disappointing
season.
Arrasate was in his second season
in charge of Sociedad.

S. Korea recalls Park: South
Korea coach Uli Stielike recalled
former Arsenal striker Park Chuyoung to the national team for
friendlies this month against Jordan
and Iran.
Park, released by Arsenal in May
and without a club until he joined
Saudi Arabia’s Al Shabab in
September, has not featured for his
country since a disappointing 2014
World Cup when the Asian giant collected a solitary point.
South Korea is preparing for
January’s Asian Cup, where it is drawn
in Group A with host Australia,
Kuwait and Oman.
“These are the last friendly games
before the Asian Cup,” Stielike told a
news conference Monday. “The
biggest reason to select Park is
because this is my last chance to see
him for myself.” (AP)
