Sixers outduel Heat down stretch to clinch No. 7 seed in East

The 76ers needed all the improbable tricks they could summon to even have an opportunity at winning their first play-in game. Nicolas Batum hit game-shifting 3-pointers. Buddy Hield was in the mix. Even the promise of free chicken nuggets was enough to revive an offense and smother the boos from Philly fans that rained inside the arena. But in crunch time, the game came down to Joel Embiid. Always Joel Embiid. With the NBA MVP on the court, the 76ers proved they have a shot at a long postseason run as long as he’s in the lineup. Embiid had 23 points, 15 rebounds and one huge […]

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 […]

Djokovic tops Musetti, Khachanov upsets Medvedev in Monte Carlo

Novak Djokovic looked sluggish at times and hit several unforced errors, but he raised his game on important points to move on to the quarterfinals of the Monte Carlo Masters on Thursday. The top-ranked Serb, a two-time Monte Carlo champion, gained revenge over Lorenzo Musetti, who defeated him last year at the Country Club in the third round. Djokovic converted five of six break points and progressed with a confidence-boosting 7-5, 6-3 win. “I lost to him last year here. Similar circumstances,” said Djokovic, who is playing in his first tournament since parting ways with former coach Goran Ivanisevic. “I was a […]

Celtics clinch NBA’s best record with runaway win against OKC

Oklahoma City coach Mark Daigneault likened the Celtics’ performance this season to that of a Ferrari. Boston’s latest triumph over the Thunder earned it yet another luxury with the playoffs fast approaching. Kristaps Porzingis had 27 points, 12 rebounds and 5 blocks, helping the Celtics power past the Thunder 135-100 on Wednesday night to secure the best record in the NBA and home-court advantage throughout the playoffs. Boston, which won its 11th consecutive home match, improved to 60-16 on the season to notch its 14th 60-win season in franchise history. The only other franchise with at least 10 such seasons is the Lakers, who have 11, […]

Phillies slugger Bryce Harper hits 3 homers for first hits of season

Bryce Harper’s first hit of the season was a big one. Same for his second. And his third. Harper homered in all three of his at-bats for Philadelphia during Tuesday night’s 9-4 victory over the Cincinnati Reds. The two-time NL MVP went 0 for 11 while playing in three of the Phillies’ first four games. The 31-year-old Harper drove a 1-2 cut fastball from Graham Ashcraft deep to center in the first inning. The 420-foot solo shot had an exit velocity of 107.7 mph. He came up again in the fourth and hit another solo shot to right. The 367-foot homer on the […]

Juan Soto delivers game-saving throw in New York Yankees debut

That Juan Soto’s first signature Yankee moment happened in his debut on Opening Day wasn’t far-fetched for a superstar with an uncanny ability to show out in the biggest moments. But for that moment to happen on a game-saving defensive play? That wasn’t a part of the script anyone, at least on the outside, envisioned for Soto, whose defense has been a knock on him, especially over the past two seasons. That’s what happened Thursday afternoon versus the Houston Astros at Minute Maid Park. With one out and two runners on in the ninth inning and the Yankees nursing a one-run lead, Kyle Tucker smashed a single […]

Top seed Carlos Alcaraz, defending champ Daniil Medvedev advance to Miami quarterfinals

Defending Miami Open champion Daniil Medvedev earned his 350th career match to move into the quarterfinals for a fourth consecutive year, beating Dominik Koepfer 7-6 (5), 6-0 on Tuesday. Top-seeded Carlos Alcaraz also advanced with ease in a 6-3, 6-3 victory over No. 23 seed Lorenzo Musetti. Alcaraz, who defeated Musetti in less than 90 minutes and looked comfortable as ever on the court, said he’s “probably” playing his best tennis since last summer. That ankle injury from last month is no longer a concern, he said. Looking for the best online betting site and Live betting? Visit Heritage Sports “I don’t […]

Yankees ace Gerrit Cole (elbow) won’t throw for 3-4 weeks

New York Yankees ace Gerrit Cole won’t throw for three to four weeks due to a nerve irritation and edema in his throwing elbow. “I think we’ve determined that we just got a little too hot a little too quick,” Cole said before Saturday’s game against Toronto. “I just got to a certain point where we just didn’t hit baseline and recovery. That’s important at this time of the year.” Yankees general manager Brian Cashman stated that if the team needed a 40-man roster spot, Cole would be placed on the 60-day injured list, which means the earliest the AL Cy Young award winner […]

Chris Paul steadies Warriors in return, keys win off bench

Golden State Warriors guard Chris Paul pointed twice during a possession late in the third quarter of Tuesday’s victory over the Washington Wizards, directing his teammates where to go. In response, Klay Thompson slowly walked to the left side of the 3-point arc while Jonathan Kuminga quickly came in to set a screen. As the defenders came off the screen, they both stuck with Thompson on the perimeter, leaving a wide-open lane for Kuminga. Paul lobbed the ball up for the third-year forward, who completed the alley-oop. “That’s what Chris does,” Warriors coach Steve Kerr said. “He gets you organized, he gets you good looks. All season long, […]

Hawks center Onyeka Okongwu (toe) out for ‘foreseeable future’

The Hawks are preparing to be without center Onyeka Okongwu for an indefinite period, leaving the team with serious front-line depth issues as it returns from the All-Star break. Coach Quin Snyder stated following Thursday’s practice Okongwu, who missed the final game before the break with a sprained left toe, “is not going to be available for the foreseeable future.” Snyder’s announcement was a surprise following initial expectations Okongwu would miss a week to 10 days. The loss of Okongwu, who has shared playing time with starting center Clint Capela, comes as Capela has missed the past six matches with a left adductor strain. Capela […]
