Jalen Brunson returns from injury, sparks Knicks to 2-0 lead

New York Knicks center Isaiah Hartenstein stated he heard the roar from the locker room. Jalen Brunson, who had exited with a right foot injury late in the first quarter of Wednesday night’s Game 2 versus the Indiana Pacers, had returned to the Madison Square Garden floor during halftime to see if he could push through the pain. The moment he walked through the tunnel, the crowd erupted. It was a noise so loud that Hartenstein and his teammates said they heard it from their lockers, and so intense that Brunson pleaded fans to tone things down so he could find the mental clarity […]

Dallas Mavericks sign coach Jason Kidd to multiyear extension

Jason Kidd has signed a multiyear contract extension with the Dallas Mavericks, the team revealed Monday. The deal comes just days after ESPN’s Dave McMenamin reported that Kidd’s name had been mentioned as a potential candidate for Los Angeles Lakers head coach, a job that came open when the team fired Darvin Ham. “We are excited to have Coach Kidd continue to lead our team throughout the coming years with this well-earned contract extension,” Mavericks governor Patrick Dumont said. “Kidd led our team to two playoff appearances in three seasons, and we are looking forward to his leadership in continuing to build and grow […]

Joe Burrow back to throwing at Bengals workouts

Bengals quarterback Joe Burrow marked a major offseason milestone on Monday. As the team started the second phase of voluntary workouts, Burrow was in uniform and throwing a pass in a video shared by the team. The Bengals were closed to the media on Monday. But quarterbacks coach Brad Kragthorpe told the team’s website he was pleased with how Burrow looked in his first practice back since suffering a season-ending wrist surgery last November. “He looked like the Joe Burrow we’re used to seeing,” Kragthorpe stated. “I didn’t see any difference. I thought the ball came out of his hand well. Confidently. I’m […]

Real Madrid won’t underestimate Bayern Munich in UCL

Carlo Ancelotti has insisted Real Madrid will not take Bayern Munich lightly in their Champions League semifinal despite their poor domestic season and labeled the German side “dangerous” ahead of the first leg at the Allianz Arena on Tuesday. Bayern have relinquished the Bundesliga title for the first time since 2012 with their disappointing campaign playing a part in the decision to part company with coach Thomas Tuchel at the end of the season. Real Madrid are favorites to progress to the Champions League final at Wembley, but Ancelotti has warned his team against any complacency. “We’re preparing to play a big team with lots of qualities,” Ancelotti told a […]

Inter Milan clinch 20th Serie A title with win over AC Milan

Inter Milan defeated city rivals AC Milan 2-1 on Monday to clinch the Serie A title, the 20th time the club has lifted the trophy in its history. Goals either side of half-time by Francesco Acerbi and Marcus Thuram set Inter on their way, but Fikayo Tomori pulled one back for AC Milan in the 80th minute and each side had a player sent off shortly before the end of the match as tempers flared. Inter were able to see out the result, though, and when the whistle blew to end the game they sat on an insurmountable 86 points, 17 clear of Milan with five matches to play in the […]

D’Angelo Russell falters late as Lakers drop Game 1

As much as the story of the Los Angeles Lakers’ season has been centered on the team looking to make up for its flameout in the Western Conference finals a year ago to pursuit a championship, there’s also been a personal redemption arc for point guard D’Angelo Russell. However Saturday’s 114-103 Game 1 loss to the Denver Nuggets, where Russell missed 13 of his final 16 shot attempts and scored 13 points, brought to mind some of his past struggles. “D-Lo is a huge reason why we’re here in the first place,” Lakers coach Darvin Ham said. “I’m not going to bail out on my […]

Real Madrid teach Man City a lesson in Champions League epic clash

It’s clear that Manchester City have established themselves within football’s elite since Sheikh Mansour bin Zayed al Nahyan started to transform the club in 2008, but Real Madrid occupy an even higher echelon in the game’s hierarchy, delivering a painful reminder by dethroning the European champions and ending Pep Guardiola’s hopes of a double-treble. Wednesday’s victory should serve as a reminder that Real Madrid should never be underestimated or written off, even versus a team as accomplished as Guardiola’s City. Antonio Rudiger’s coolly converted spot-kick in the penalty shootout at the end of this pulsating quarterfinal tie sealed a 4-3 win on penalties for […]

RB J.K. Dobbins plans to sign 1-year deal with Chargers

Former Baltimore Ravens running back J.K. Dobbins plans to sign a one-year contract with the Los Angeles Chargers, per his agency, LAA Sports. The move reunites him with Greg Roman, his former offensive coordinator in Baltimore, as well as his former Ravens backfield mate Gus Edwards. Dobbins was the Ravens’ lead back when healthy. He brings a style different from Edwards’ that features elusiveness and the capacity to catch passes out of the backfield. The Ravens didn’t do a ton of throwing to running backs, but in Dobbins’ rookie season with Roman, he caught a career-high 18 passes. The Chargers and quarterback Justin Herbert relied heavily on former […]

Lakers survive Pelicans’ rally, advance to matchup vs. Nuggets

LeBron James posted 23 points, 9 assists and 9 rebounds, and the Los Angeles Lakers secured a playoff berth with a 110-106 victory over the New Orleans Pelicans in the Western Conference play-in tournament on Tuesday night. Zion Williamson had 40 points and 11 rebounds in his NBA postseason debut. But shortly after tying the game at 95 on a driving layup with 3:19 to go, Williamson went to the locker room, throwing a towel to the floor in disgust as he walked into the tunnel with an apparent injury. After the game, Pelicans coach Willie Green stated Williamson had “left leg soreness.” “He’s going to have some […]

No holding back against Barcelona in second leg – PSG boss

Luis Enrique is convinced Paris Saint-Germain can mount a comeback versus Barcelona and reach the Champions League semifinals by taking the game to his former side on Tuesday. Barça triumphed 3-2 in Paris last Wednesday, ending PSG’s 27-game undefeated streak in all competitions, and have home advantage in this week’s quarterfinal second leg at the Olympic Stadium. PSG coach Luis Enrique was in charge of Barça in 2017 when they overturned a 4-0 defeat to the French side by beating them 6-1 in the return game, but he is now aiming to create history on the other side of the divide. “PSG have never […]
