Phillies set to host Houston with World Series tied at 1-all

Fresh from singing another rollicking chorus of “Fly, Eagles fly,” fans streamed out of Lincoln Financial Field on Sunday and quickly turned their attention from the NFL’s only unbeaten club to another Philly team, another sport and another building just a few hundred yards away. “Let’s go, Phillies!” some chanted in the concourse. “Let’s go, Harper!” other hollered as they headed to the exits. Think that was loud? Just wait till the World Series returns to Philadelphia for the first time since 2009. On Halloween night, too, with the Phillie Phanatic sure to be in rare form. Already frenzied during […]

Stephen Curry scores 33 as Warriors hold off Heat 123-110

Smooth as ever starting his 14th NBA season, Stephen Curry shook Tyler Herro and made it look oh so easy. Curry scored 10 of his 33 points in a tight fourth quarter to go with nine assists and seven rebounds, leading the Golden State Warriors past the Miami Heat 123-110 on Thursday night. He pounded his chest with both hands and hollered in delight after a dazzling sequence in which he crossed over twice to lose Herro, then stepped back and sunk a 3-pointer with 5:32 left that put Golden State ahead 108-100. “It was a great move,” teammate Draymond Green said. “He got to the spot that he wanted.

Kawhi Leonard (knee) sits out Clippers’ loss to Thunder

Kawhi Leonard experienced stiffness in his surgically repaired right knee and missed the LA Clippers’ 108-94 loss to the Oklahoma City Thunder on Tuesday night. The two crews will meet again Thursday in Oklahoma City, and Leonard will sit that one out as well. Before Tuesday’s loss, Clippers coach Ty Lue said Leonard has not suffered a setback with his right ACL and that the team is remaining extremely cautious with its franchise star. Leonard is scheduled to fly back to Los Angeles on Wednesday to receive treatment on his knee. The Clippers will see how Leonard is feeling before […]

Nets’ Ben Simmons sounds off after fouling out for 2nd time in 3 games

Brooklyn Nets swingman Ben Simmons called several of the whistles he received “bulls—” following a 134-124 loss to the Memphis Grizzlies on Monday night, noting that “refs make mistakes too.” While Simmons, who fouled out for the second time in three regular-season matches, was frustrated with many calls, the one that drew most of his ire was his sixth foul, called by official J.T. Orr with 3:52 left in the contest. Grizzlies guard Ja Morant slowly let the ball roll up the floor then collected it and stood there waiting for Simmons to make a move. Once Simmons came closer to Morant — who was standing a little over […]

Astros sweep Yankees to reach 4th World Series in 6 years

The Houston Astros made going to the World Series look easy. This is October, after all, the time of year when it’s easy to pencil in the Astros for making a deep postseason run — and 2022 marked their sixth consecutive trip to the American League Championship Series. And somehow, this year’s Astros team made things look even easier, steamrolling through the regular season to the tune of an American League-best 106 wins and sweeping all three games versus the Seattle Mariners in the ALDS and all four games against the New York Yankees in the ALCS. The Astros won Game 4 of the ALCS 6-5 on Sunday […]

Paul George scores 40 as Clippers edge Kings 111-109

Paul George scored 40 points to help the Los Angeles Clippers hold off the Sacramento Kings 111-109 on Saturday night. It was the 20th time that George scored 40 points, including playoffs, and his fifth as a member of the Clippers. “I know I’m able to be the No. 1 option,” George said. “I’m very aware and very confident in my abilities.” De’Aaron Fox scored with 41.4 seconds left to cap a 15-6 Sacramento run, one that pulled the Kings from 12 points down to 109-106. George missed a 3-pointer on the next Clippers’ possession, but Nicolas Batum grabbed the offensive rebound and Norman Powell knocked down two […]

Padres’ bats come alive in Game 2 comeback win to even NLCS

Juan Soto and Josh Hader absorbed most of the attention, but Brandon Drury and Josh Bell were in-season assets of similar importance to the San Diego Padres — a belief further emphasized by Fernando Tatis Jr.’s ensuing suspension. Drury and Bell represented key power bats in the middle of the lineup, a key source of protection for Soto and Manny Machado. And on Wednesday, with the Padres in desperate need of a victory, their bats finally came alive. Drury and Bell, struggling all postseason and for most of their Padres tenure, combined for five hits and drove in five runs in Game 2 of the National League Championship Series, keying an 8-5 […]

After all those thrilling NBA Finals battles of last decade, Stephen Curry and LeBron James can still put on a spectacular show well into their 30s. Opening night between these two greats showed why Curry’s team is on top these days. Curry started the season with 33 points, seven assists and six rebounds despite a slow start, and the Golden State Warriors defeated James and the Los Angeles Lakers 123-109 on Tuesday night after receiving their championship rings in a pregame ceremony. “I’m thrilled with the win,” coach Steve Kerr said. “Ring night is never an easy game and the first game of the season is usually filled […]
