CHARLOTTE, North Carolina (AP): Jeremy Lin scored 15 of his 29 points in the fourth quarter as Charlotte overcame a 23-point deficit to snap San Antonio’s six-game winning streak, winning 91-88. Lin was 11 of 18 from the field and hit all four three-point attempts, including three in the fourth quarter. Courtney Lee had 17 points, Nicolas Batum added 15, and Cody Zeller grabbed 14 rebounds for the Hornets, who bounced back from a disappointing loss to the Denver Nuggets on Saturday night. The Spurs had two chances to tie it at the end of regulation, but Patty Mills and Danny Green both missed three-point attempts. In Cleveland, LeBron James scored 33 points and had his 41st career triple-double as the Cavaliers clinched their second straight Central Division title with a comfortable 124-91 victory over Denver. James added 11 rebounds and 11 assists before checking out with 6:02 left to a thunderous ovation. He scored 17 in the first quarter, helping the Cavs build a 19-point lead and erase the memory of an embarrassing loss on Saturday in Miami. The Nuggets fought back and briefly led before the Cavs regrouped, scored 68 after half-time to notch their 50th win. Will Barton scored 27 for the Nuggets. Andre Drummond’s tip-in with two seconds remaining lifted Detroit over Milwaukee, 92-91. TIGHT RACE The Pistons, who are in a tight race for the final play-off spot in the Eastern Conference, came out inexplicably flat and trailed by 17 points in the first half. They were down 13 in the third quarter before chipping away at Milwaukee’s lead in the fourth. Drummond was outplayed badly early on by Greg Monroe, but when Kentavious Caldwell-Pope missed from the perimeter in the final seconds, Drummond was able to tip the ball in. Draymond Green had 24 points, nine rebounds and six assists to help Golden State narrowly avoid their first two-game skid in nearly a year with a 109-104 victory at Minnesota. Klay Thompson scored 17 points and hit all five of his three-pointers, and the Warriors (63-7) overcame a second straight poor shooting night from Stephen Curry. He missed 11 of his 17 shots, including seven of his nine three-pointers, but still had 19 points, 11 assists and seven rebounds.
Representatives of justice reform, faith-based and non-governmental organisations on Friday commenced a five-day regional “train-the-trainer” workshop on restorative justice, a programme sponsored by Caricom and the European Union, along with the Sycamore Tree Project.Assistant Secretary General, Human and Social Development, Caricom Secretariat, Dr Douglas SlaterThe train-the-trainer workshop, which is being hosted at the Grand Costal Inn at Le Ressouvenir, ECD, is an activity of the 10th European Development Crime and Violence Prevention and Social Project under the Caribbean Forum/European Crime and Security Programme.Caricom’s Assistant Secretary-General, Human and Social Development, Dr Douglas Slater, in his remarks, said the workshop is one of several aimed at promoting social inclusion and reintegration of offenders into society. According to him, as the region endeavours to embrace alternatives to incarceration, adopting restorative justice programmes has become a critical priority.“Restorative justice is a response to crime that emphasises healing the wounds of victims, offenders and communities caused or revealed by criminal behaviour,” he is quoted by the Department of Public Information as saying.In this regard, he said, the workshop, aimed at building the capacity of persons to implement the Sycamore Tree Project, is “opportune.”The Sycamore Tree Project is an in-prison restorative justice programme bringing together unrelated victims and offenders to discuss crime and its impact, while presenting opportunities for understanding and healing.

Fire tenders of the Nashik Municipal Corporation were rushed to the spot, which brought the blaze under control, they said. The fire was confined to the balcony area of the theatre, which was launched in 1975 and closed down 40 years later in 2015, they added. Nobody was reported injured in the incident, the officials said, adding that the cause of the blaze is being ascertained.
