Leonard may have gotten away with double dribble in second OT

Sports
Kawhi Leonard may have benefited from the referees missing a double dribble by him during Game 3 of the Eastern Conference finals on Sunday night.Leonard led his Toronto Raptors with 36 points in their 118-112 win in double overtime against the Milwaukee Bucks. In the second overtime, he made a dunk in transition and appeared to have gotten away with a double dribble:You can see he appeared to touch the ball with his left hand by the three-point line around the same time he was touching it with his right.

Aunque el América fue mejor en los 180 minutos, los Panzas Verdes mantuvieron la compostura y no cedieron terreno para avanzar a la final, que disputarán contra Tigres. Tras el histórico torneo que realizaron, con récord de puntos (en torneos con 18 equipos) y donde rompieron la racha de más victorias seguidas, con 12, nadie puede decir que el León no merece estar en la final. El ambicioso proyecto de Ignacio Ambriz está cerca de alcanzar la gloria, pero primero se medirán ante el experimentado Tigres, que algo sabe de finales....

For the Raptors, Game 3 came down to their will to survive

Sports
TORONTO -- Nothing in the NBA playoffs goes off as planned.Lineup rotations can be tweaked and defensive coverages can be refined, but no matter how much preparation has been performed, the crucial minutes of a playoff game are nothing more than a desperate exercise in survival. Every possession is a fire drill, and few of them resemble the inspired plays drawn up on crisp whiteboards by basketball brainiacs when all is at peace.For the Toronto Raptors on Sunday night, fighting for their postseason lives, unforeseen circumstances were the norm. Kawhi Leonard landed awkwardly in the first quarter with questions swirling throughout the game about his condition.Their starting point guard, Kyle Lowry, fouled out of the game with more than six minutes remaining in regulation. Their most productive offensive guard in Game 3 was reserve Norman Powell -- and he fouled out five minutes later. That left the Raptors with a backcourt of Danny Green and Fred VanVleet, who had shot a collective 2-for-20 on the night. With seven seconds remaining in regulation, Pascal Siakam -- a 78.5 percent shooter at the line this season -- had an opportunity to secure the win with a pair of free throws but missed both....

A big star made his WWE comeback at Money In The Bank and there were three title changes at a chaotic event.Brock Lesnar was the surprise return, making his way to the ring in the final moments of the men's ladder match to prevent Ali from taking the briefcase.His arrival came at the end of an enormously brutal match which saw Finn Balor take a sunset flip, a chokeslam and a suplex onto a ladder and Ali deliver a Spanish Fly on Andrade from a ladder.The women's match also saw a similar number of high spots, with Carmella requiring medical treatment after her ankle was caught in the steps of a ladder and Ember Moon delivering his Eclipse finisher off a ladder.But the victory - and the briefcase - went to Bayley, and she wasted no time in cashing in her championship opportunity....

Dustin Johnson Comes Up Short Again, But This Loss Is Different From the Others

Sports
BETHPAGE, N.Y. — Dustin Johnson did not watch himself lose the PGA Championship on Sunday. He had plenty of chances. There were screens everywhere. He loped off the course and lingered briefly in the scoring tent, where a TV showed Brooks Koepka teeing off on No. 17. Johnson did not look up. He spent that time signing balls for the marshal and standard-bearer who had followed him.He made his way to the Golf Channel on NBC tent, where the TV in front of him showed Koepka on the 17th fairway. Johnson stared behind him, at the graphic of his own scorecard.Next he went in for a Sky Sports interview. Again the TV in front of him offered a chance to watch Koepka. Johnson glanced down, caught a glimpse of Koepka on the 18th fairway, groaned and looked back up....

D'Antoni has sights on 3 more years minimum

Sports
The Houston Rockets and coach Mike D'Antoni have had preliminary discussions on the framework of a contract extension that would keep the two-time NBA Coach of the Year from entering the final year of his deal."I've let [general manager] Daryl [Morey] and [team owner] Tilman [Fertitta] know that I'm energized to keep coaching --- and believe that I can continue to do this at a high level for at least another three years," D'Antoni, 68, told ESPN on Sunday night."I want to be a part of a championship here."It is unclear how significant of a commitment the Rockets are willing to make to D'Antoni, who told ESPN he prefers to avoid entering the final year of his original four-year contract in 2019-20 without an extension....

Would Jets really trade Bell?

Sports
With reports that Jets coach and interim G.M. Adam Gase didn’t want Le'Veon Bell (overstated) and/or that Gase thinks the Jets paid too much for Bell (correctly stated), chatter has emerged that the Jets could trade Bell.If Gase is inclined to do it, now’s the time given his current power and control over the team. And John Clayton, formerly of ESPN and now a radio host in Seattle, recently said just enough on 93.7 The Fan in Pittsburgh to get people thinking that a trade could happen: “If there’s a suitor, I could absolutely see the Jets trading him before the start of the season.”It’s more likely that the Jets will have a suitor than that the Jets would trade him, however, because Bell already has earned $12 million via signing and roster bonuses. A new team could get him for five years, $40.5 million. That’s the ballpark that likely would have gotten the 49ers to bite in March, but now that the 49ers have signed Tevin Coleman (and already have Jerick McKinnon entering the season year of his own big-money, free-agency deal) they’d likely be interested only if they have (another) rash of ACL tears....

PGA Championship Final Round Live Blog: Brooks Koepka hunts history at Bethpage Black

Sports
© USA TODAY USA TODAY Had Brooks Koepka found the green on No. 12 during the final round of the Masters, he may very well be 18 holes away from his fourth major championship in 11 months.Koepka, however, rinsed his tee shot on that historic day. He double-bogeyed 12 about 15 minutes before Tiger Woods would post a Masters-clinching par. Woods would eventually beat Koepka, Xander Schauffele and Dustin Johnson by one shot at Augusta National.Since that ill-fated moment on 12, Koepka beat Woods by a total of 18 shots over 42 holes head-to-head before Tiger bowed out at Bethpage Black Friday.: 101st PGA ChampionshipIt's likely Koepka will have to settle for merely participating in his second consecutive Wanamaker Trophy award ceremony sometime around 7 p.m. Sunday after winning the 101st PGA Championship. A victory would overlap his two straight U.S. Open titles - including the one won at Shinnecock Hills last June 53 miles to the east on Long Island....

Photo of Murray leads to more speculation about height

Sports
Kyler Murray's height has come back into question after a photo made the Arizona Cardinals quarterback look particularly small.Murray, the No. 1 overall pick in 2019, got a front-row spot for a photo at the NFL Players Association's rookie premiere. He stood next to his former Sooners teammate and current Ravens receiver Marquise Brown. But Murray looked shorter than Brown, who is listed at 5-foot-9. Murray, meanwhile, measured in at 5-foot-10 at the 2019 NFL Combine. That measurement helped galvanize his status as a top draft pick.Here's a look at the photo.Because of the angle of the photo, it's tough to say with certainty that Brown is taller than Murray. To overanalyze it, Murray's posture looks a little hunched, and he also seems to be a step in front Brown. The hunch would make him shorter (of course), but the step forward should make him look taller. Perhaps we've got some sort of optical illusion....

Report: Durant unhappy with 'prodding' from Kerr

Sports
It would be a surprise at this point if Kevin Durant decided to re-sign with the Warriors this summer, and there has been no shortage of reasons cited for why the soon-to-be free agent is looking to leave Golden State. Could the head coach be among those reasons?Steve Popper of Newsday spoke with several NBA executives about Durant at the NBA combine last week, and the general consensus is that Durant is a lock to sign with the New York Knicks. According to one exec, two of the issues Durant is having in Golden State are that he is tired of “prodding” from Steve Kerr and knows the Warriors will always be Stephen Curry’s team. With the Knicks, Durant would be the centerpiece of a tortured franchise rather than a superstar who joined a championship team just to get a ring....

Joe Maddon, Cubs Drop Protest of Saturday's Loss to Nationals Over Sean Doolittle’s Delivery

Sports
WASHINGTON — The Chicago Cubs have dropped their protest over the pitching delivery of Washington reliever Sean Doolittle.Cubs manager Joe Maddon made the announcement before Sunday night’s game against the Nationals.Maddon came out twice in the ninth inning of a 5-2 loss Saturday night to complain to plate umpire San Holbrook about Doolittle. Maddon said he believed the left-handed Doolittle was tapping his right toe on the ground before coming to the plate.Cubs reliever Carl Edwards Jr. was informed at the end of spring training that his delivery, which featured a similar toe-tap, was illegal. That ruling miffed Maddon and the Cubs.“The whole thing I really wanted to get done was to protect Carl,” Maddon said Sunday. “I really didn’t anticipate a whole lot to be done with (the protest) even though I still don’t agree with the conclusion because I think it’s exactly what Carl did, only a different version of it....

Koepka: Most satisfying major

Sports
Brooks Koepka described his fourth major win in less than two years as his "most satisfying" after stumbling over the line at the PGA Championship.Koepka looked in danger of throwing away a seven-shot lead on the final day when he bogeyed four in a row after the turn on a dramatic Sunday at Bethpage Black, with his close friend Dustin Johnson closing within one with three to play.But Johnson followed his birdie at the 15th with consecutive bogeys at 16 and 17 which gave Koepka some much-needed breathing room, and another dropped shot at the 17th from the defending champion mattered little in the outcome.A scrambled par at the last completed an erratic, closing 74 and a two-shot victory, making him the first player to successfully defend the Wanamaker Trophy since Tiger Woods, and he admitted his stress levels had been alarmingly high down the stretch....

Boxer's easy knockout underscores sports' relevancy issues

NEW YORK — Early Sunday morning, half an hour after midnight, the heavyweight champion Deontay Wilder ascended a stage deep inside the Barclays Center. He wore a black patterned suit, a bedazzled black dress shirt and gold bracelets on his right wrist. Cameras crammed onto a platform in the back. The room, filled with supporters and reporters, burst into applause.At the lectern, though, Wilder remained atypically subdued. Gone were the usual shouts of “Bomb Squad!,” the threats he issued to Dominic Breazeale last week, even the charisma normally oozed from boxing’s greatest showman. And this on a night he ended in two minutes and 17 seconds, with a thrilling, stunning knockout that actually hurt to watch. He said he didn’t feel the punch; he just knew, and those kinds of blows are the most serious....

Game 3 win highlights Warriors' overlooked toughness

Sports
PORTLAND, Ore. -- Beautiful. Dazzling. Frenetic. Unfair.A lot of adjectives have been used to describe the Golden State Warriors' dynastic run since Steve Kerr took over as coach before the 2014-15 season. Here's one that you don't often hear: Tough.But after watching this team rattle off four straight wins since Kevin Durant's injury, including sending the starving Houston Rockets home for the summer without any dinner and becoming the first NBA team to overcome back-to-back second-half deficits of at least 13 points in Saturday's 110-99 Game 3 win over the Portland Trail Blazers, Golden State's toughness should be the first thing on our minds.Often when the Warriors go on their patented third-quarter runs, the response is something to the tune of, "well, they finally decided to start playing." The default, because of the team's roster, style and success, is that if they're losing then they're not trying. People forget just how hard it is to win -- particularly in the playoffs -- and how good every single NBA player is. Hell, we saw Meyers Leonard look like the second coming of Dirk Nowitzki for about a five-minute stretch of Game 3....

The Oakland native shot 5-for-18 from the field and posted 19 points in Saturday’s 110-99 loss in Game 3 of the best-of-seven series.Despite a dismal Game 3, a source told ESPN that Lillard reportedly “downplayed the impact of the injury” as a reason for his performance.Portland trails Golden State in the series 3-0.
