  • Tiger Woods roars with phenomenal Round 2

    Woods opened the front nine Friday with the exact same score, 33, but this was far different than Thursday’s start-hot, collapse-late run. Woods birdied the first, sixth, and ninth holes, his drives long, his approaches accurate, his putts true. On Thursday, Woods withered at the ends of both halves of his round, bogeying the ninth and then double-bogeying 16 and 18.

  • Gronk's post-surgery report: 'Dance floor tomorrow night, here I come'

    Gronkowski has suffered a range of injuries this season, and the herniated disc that required surgery was perhaps the final straw for 2016. Getting out on the dance floor is one thing, going across the middle against the Raiders defense quite another. Without Gronkowski, the Patriots now lack their most significant weapon, and the AFC race is now wide open.

  • Doc Rivers fined $15,000 for losing it on officials in Brooklyn game

    That’s about as mad as you will ever see Doc Rivers. He was frustrated, the Clippers had blown an 18-point lead and were deep into the first overtime (which they lost in a second OT), when he walked past half court to protest a call by Lauren Holtkamp. She calmly listened to him and walked him back to his side of the court, understanding that late in games coaches need to blow off some steam. However, crew chief Kenny Mauer rushed in from the other side because he heard — or, at least thought he heard, Rivers denies it — the coach swear at the Holtkamp. Mauer gave Rivers a technical, and Rivers just lost it, and picked up another ending his night. In a surprise to nobody, including Rivers, the

  • Breaking Down Today’s Game Hall of Fame Ballot: Davey Johnson

    The case for his induction: As we note each year when the Manager of the Year Awards are announced, it’s hard to properly assess managers. A team’s performance is so heavily dependent on talent and health that it’s often difficult to determine what role a manager truly plays in its success. Bruce Bochy won three World Series titles in five seasons but the Giants disappointed in the second half of 2016. Did he suddenly forget how to manage? Of course not. Stuff happens. Over time, however, it’s a bit easier. No, you can’t simply go on the number of titles a guy won, but patterns certainly emerge and a manager’s influence begins to reveal itself over decades. And there is a definite pattern for

    Dwyane Wade insisted there were no excuses for the Bulls’ “ugly” loss to the Lakers on Wednesday. But here’s one: A key missed shooting foul down the stretch. Lakers forward Brandon Ingram should’ve been whistled for committing a shooting foul on Jimmy Butler with 1:09 left, according to the Last Two Minute Report: Ingram (LAL) makes contact with Butler (CHI) that affects his drive to the basket and shot attempt. A correct call would’ve sent Butler – who’s making 89% of his free throws this season and 82% in his career – to the line for two attempts. Instead, the Lakers grabbed the defensive rebound and pushed their lead to three, leaving Butler to miss a forced a 3-pointer with 16 seconds left.

  • The new CBA will likely keep Shohei Otani away from Major League Baseball for years

    As the cheering in response to Major League Baseball and the MLBPA reaching a new Collective Bargaining Agreement subsides, some of the downsides to it are starting to reveal themselves. One of them: perhaps the most exciting international player in the world will be unlikely to make his way to the United States to play any time soon. That player is Shohei Otani, the Japanese pitcher/designated hitter who stars for plays for the Nippon Ham Fighters. Otani is just 22-years old but he has already shown himself to be a singular talent. As a hitter, he put up a line of .322/.416/.588 with 22 homers in just 106 games in 2016.

Two hustle plays. From there the Spurs whipped the ball around the perimeter, and it ended up back to Aldridge on the baseline, where he nailed the 12-foot jumper. Eventually, the Spurs would get a Kawhi Leonard jumper to give them the victory.
