Warriors left stunned after blowing lead in final seconds in Utah

The Golden State Warriors held a four-point lead over the Utah Jazz with 13.3 seconds let in the game. They had clawed their way back after trailing by 12 in the third quarter and did so without Stephen Curry, Draymond Green and Andrew Wiggins. But what happened over those next 13 seconds left the Warriors scratching their heads following a 124-123 loss at Vivint Arena. “In my experience, there’s one game like this every year where you leave the building saying, ‘What just happened?'” Warriors coach Steve Kerr said. “You make mistakes down the stretch and you leave the arena just shaking your head, thinking, ‘How did we just let […]

Aaron Judge cashes in with 9-year, $360M Yankees deal

Aaron Judge’s bet on himself paid off in a big way. Judge has agreed to return to the New York Yankees on a nine-year, $360 million deal, sources confirmed to ESPN early Wednesday morning, giving the slugger nearly $150 million more than what the team had offered him in the spring. He decided to remain with the Yankees after flirtations with the San Francisco Giants, the team located about 100 miles from where Judge grew up in California, and the San Diego Padres, who have made it clear they are open to making big moves this winter. The looming specter of Judge leaving for […]

Yankees focused on Aaron Judge, not going to rush him

The New York Yankees want to make clear that Aaron Judge is their top — and currently only — priority in free agency. Yankees general manager Brian Cashman stated Monday at the MLB winter meetings that the team is continuing to have conversations with Judge and his representatives, and that the two sides have been exchanging contract offers. He said owner Hal Steinbrenner, who said last month that he wants Judge to “be a Yankee for the rest of his life,” met with the 2022 American League MVP personally in Tampa, Florida. Steinbrenner is “putting his money where his mouth is,” Cashman said. “We’d […]

Ravens say QB Lamar Jackson ‘week-to-week’ with knee inju

Baltimore Ravens quarterback Lamar Jackson is “week-to-week” with a knee injury after undergoing MRIs on Monday, coach John Harbaugh stated. “As the week goes on, we’ll see for this week,” Harbaugh said. “It’s probably less likely for this week but it’s not impossible. Then, after that, it’ll become more and more likely.” If Jackson is sidelined this week, backup Tyler Huntley would start for the Ravens (8-4), who play at the Pittsburgh Steelers (5-7) on Sunday. Huntley is 1-3 as a starter, throwing two touchdowns and four interceptions. In Sunday’s 10-9 triumph over the Denver Broncos, Jackson was hurt on the last play of the first quarter when […]

Derek Chisora-Tyson Fury: Rivals promise ‘best first round in heavyweight game’ for Dec. 3 fight

Derek Chisora stated he and Tyson Fury agreed to deliver “the best first round in the heavyweight game ever” as he looks to cause an upset versus the WBC heavyweight world champion on Saturday. The two Britons face off at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium with the “Gypsy King” expected to complete a winning trilogy over a 38-year-old underdog opponent he comfortably defeated in 2011 and 2014. Chisora, unfazed by the pre-fight hype and his underdog status, said he will be “going to war” with Fury. “I don’t care what is said. For me to give up, just because a newspaper […]

Toronto Blue Jays hire Don Mattingly as bench coach

Don Mattingly was expecting to spend a summer at home with his family. A call from the Toronto Blue Jays convinced him to get back into baseball. Mattingly, who left his job as Miami Marlins manager at the end of last season, is joining Toronto’s staff as bench coach to manager John Schneider, the team revealed Wednesday. Mattingly stated he’d been contacted by multiple clubs with offers for 2023, but nothing interested him until Blue Jays general manager Ross Atkins called to chat. “Just the first conversation, it felt great, honestly,” Mattingly said on a video call Wednesday. “It piqued my interest right away.” […]

Doncic, Mavs edge Curry, Warriors in West finals replay

Tim Hardaway Jr. had to watch when his Dallas Mavericks lost to the Golden State Warriors in last season’s Western Conference finals. He found himself in the middle of some playoff intensity in their first meeting this season. Hardaway hit a go-ahead 3-pointer late, Luka Doncic scored 41 points in his NBA-leading fifth triple-double and the Mavericks held off the Warriors 116-113 on Tuesday night. Dallas ended a four-game losing streak, the longest in two seasons under coach Jason Kidd. Golden State, a winner in five matches last spring on the way to the title, lost for just the second time in seven games after […]

Astros sign slugger Jose Abreu to 3-year deal

Slugging first baseman José Abreu signed a three-year deal with the Houston Astros, it was announced on Monday. Abreu, who turns 36 in January, earned the American League MVP award in 2020 and is second in baseball with 863 RBIs since his first season in the major leagues, 2014. He hit .304/.378/.446 this year with the Chicago White Sox, for whom he had played all nine of his big league seasons after defecting from Cuba. Following a dreadful first five weeks, Abreu was one of the best hitters in baseball over the final three-quarters of the season, batting .335/.405/.479, though his 15 home runs […]

Pittsburgh Pirates, 1B Carlos Santana agree on 1-year, $6.7M deal

First baseman Carlos Santana and the Pittsburgh Pirates are in agreement on a one-year, $6.7 million contract, pending the results of a physical, sources familiar with the deal told ESPN. Santana, 36, concluded with a league-average OPS last year, hitting .202/.316/.376 between stints with the Seattle Mariners and Kansas City Royals. But his expected numbers, based on how hard he hit the ball (an 81st-percentile exit velocity) and his elite walk rate (97th percentile), projected far better results, something that drove his market. Further, nobody was shifted a higher percentage last year than Santana, who saw altered defense in 356 of his 362 left-handed batting appearances. With […]
