McLaren’s Norris says Miami GP win was a matter of ‘when’ not ‘if’

Lando Norris stated he knew his first Formula One conquest was a matter of when, not if, and that he never shared the doubts of his harshest critics. Norris won at the Miami circuit which snakes around the outside of the Hard Rock Stadium, his first in 110 starts. Before Sunday he had the unenviable record of the most podium finishes without winning. The Englishman has for a long time been considered one of the sport’s most exciting talents but until Sunday had been unable to convert it to a victory.

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 […]

Marlins RHP Eury Perez to have Tommy John surgery

Miami Marlins right-hander Eury Perez will undergo Tommy John surgery and miss the 2024 season, the team revealed Thursday. The decision came after Perez visited Dr. Keith Meister for the second time in approximately two weeks. He will have the procedure on his right elbow on Monday. “I know Eury is really frustrated,” Marlins president of baseball operations Peter Bendix said. “He’s really disappointed, but he also understands that this is a minor setback in what’s going to be a really long career.” Perez initially was diagnosed with mild elbow inflammation, with surgery not being recommended at that point. He began playing catch […]

Dimitrov beats top seed Alcaraz in straight sets in Miami quarterfinals

Eleventh-seeded Grigor Dimitrov came out strong versus top-seeded Carlos Alcaraz on Thursday night and won 6-2, 6-4 in the Miami Open quarterfinals, his first victory over a top-five player in nearly five years. Fourth-seeded Alexander Zverev, who defeated unseeded Fabian Marozsan 6-3, 7-5, will play Dimitrov in the semifinals Friday. Second-seeded Jannik Sinner will face No. 3 Daniil Medvedev in the other semifinal, a rematch of last year’s final that Medvedev won. Alcaraz, the 2022 champion, entered this tournament off a victory over Medvedev at Indian Wells. But the world’s second-ranked player had trouble finding his game versus Dimitrov and became visibly frustrated numerous times in the first set. Looking for the […]

Coco Gauff into 4th round in Miami, eyes first hometown title

Third-ranked Coco Gauff came from behind in the first set to defeat Oceane Dodin 6-4, 6-0 and advance to the fourth round of the Miami Open for the second time in her career. Gauff won 10 consecutive games after Dodin took a 4-2 lead in the opening set, thanks partly to nine double-faults by Dodin at critical moments. Gauff has just one loss in her past 23 matches in the United States. That defeat came versus Maria Sakkari at Indian Wells earlier this month. Gauff, who turned 20 on March 13, is the youngest American player to hold a top three seed at Miami. […]

Simona Halep returns from doping ban in 1st-round loss at Miami

Simona Halep had just lost to Paula Badosa 1-6, 6-4, 6-3 in the first round of the Miami Open on Tuesday, but she couldn’t help but smile and flash a thumbs up to the crowd as she walked off the court. For Halep, the day was “special” regardless of the result, as it marked the welcome conclusion of an 18-month absence from competition due to a doping ban. The former world No. 1 and two-time major champion tested positive for roxadustat, a banned blood-booster substance, at the 2022 US Open and had not played since. Initially given a four-year suspension — which the […]

OG Anunoby lifts Knicks to blowout win over 76ers in return

What a difference a player makes – and, specifically, OG Anunoby for the New York Knicks. After scoring the fewest points in an NBA match in over three years without him Sunday in a loss to the Philadelphia 76ers here at Madison Square Garden, Anunoby returned from a several-week absence with an elbow injury to help deliver a 106-79 victory over their rivals down Interstate 95. Anunoby concluded with 14 points, 4 rebounds and 2 assists and was a plus-28 in 29 minutes. “Everything felt good,” Anunoby said in first game in several weeks after undergoing surgery to remove loose bodies from his right (shooting) […]

Heat extend Erik Spoelstra on record 8-year, $120M deal

Miami Heat coach Erik Spoelstra has agreed to an eight-year contract extension worth more than $120 million, the most committed money in North American coaching history, sources told ESPN on Tuesday night. Spoelstra, 53, has established himself as one of the most respected and successful coaches in professional sports and the new deal reflects both his and the organization’s desire to keep him with the only franchise he’s ever worked for in the NBA. Spoelstra — who has collected two championships and reached the NBA Finals six times — is the NBA’s second-highest-paid coach on an annual basis, behind Gregg Popovich […]

Americans Ben Shelton, Frances Tiafoe exit Paris Masters

Americans Ben Shelton and Frances Tiafoe both lost in the first round of the Paris Masters on Monday. The 14th-seeded Tiafoe fell 6-3, 6-4 to Alexander Bublik while Shelton, the No. 15 seed, was undone 7-6 (4), 5-7, 6-3 by Alejandro Davidovich Fokina. It was Bublik’s first hardcourt triumph at a Masters tournament since Miami last year. Shelton, who earned his maiden tour title earlier this month in Tokyo, hit 15 aces but could not recover from the only break of serve in the decider. Also, Alex De Minaur saved one match point and rallied from 2-5 down in the third set to defeat 2016 champion Andy Murray 7-6 (5), 4-6, […]

Nuggets take home 1st NBA title in rugged 94-89 win over Heat

Confetti flying in Denver. The Nuggets sharing hugs while passing around the NBA championship trophy. Those scenes that, for almost a half-century, seemed impossible, then more recently started feeling inevitable, finally turned into reality Monday night. The Nuggets outlasted the Miami Heat 94-89 in an ugly, frantic Game 5 that did nothing to derail Nikola Jokic, who bailed out his teammates with 28 points and 16 rebounds on a night when nothing else seemed to work. Jokic became the first player in history to lead the league in points (600), rebounds (269) and assists (190) in a single postseason. Not surprisingly, he acquired […]
