Christmas leads Fever in 77-70 win

ATLANTA (AP) — Karima Christmas scored 18 points to lead the Indiana Fever to a 77-70 victory over the Atlanta Dream on Tuesday night.

Sydney Carter added 11 points — all in the second half— against her former team and Indiana (7-9) won in Atlanta for the second time this season. Carter, who was briefly with the Dream last season, scored a career-high 14 points when the Fever won 82-77 in overtime in Atlanta on May 25.

Erika de Souza scored 23 points for the Dream (11-5), who lost for just the second time in nine home games this season. Atlanta leading scorer Angel McCoughtry added 17 points on 6-for-18 shooting.

The Dream were 0 for 13 on 3-point attempts.

Bucks hire Jason Kidd after Nets deal

MILWAUKEE (AP) — The Milwaukee Bucks hired Jason Kidd as coach on Tuesday after completing a deal with the Brooklyn Nets.

The Bucks sent the Nets two second-round picks for Kidd, who went 44-38 in his only season as Brooklyn coach.

Milwaukee fired Larry Drew on Monday after reaching the deal for Kidd. Drew went 15-67, the worst record in the league, in his only season guiding the Bucks.

“Jason is a determined leader, a tough-minded competitor and a great teammate,” Bucks owners Wesley Edens and Marc Lasry said in a statement.

Kidd became available after seeking greater power within the Nets, the organization he led to its greatest NBA success as a player. When that was denied, the team granted him permission to speak to other teams.

The Nets could move quickly to replace Kidd. General manager Billy King met with former Memphis coach Lionel Hollins on Monday and planned to talk to him again Tuesday.

Indians top Dodgers 10-3

LOS ANGELES (AP) - One pitch, two replays, three outs.

“I’ve seen triple plays, but none quite like that,” Dodgers left fielder Matt Kemp said Tuesday night. “I guess there’s a first time for everything.”
