James Harden explodes for 39, has Brooklyn Nets’ confidence ‘through the roof’ with Kevin Durant nearing return

James Harden’s big night for the Brooklyn Nets started with a couple of step-back 3-pointers, but it was the burst in his step and explosion in his drives that really opened eyes on Monday night. In his second match back from the NBA’s health and safety protocols, a fresh Harden continued his dominant play of late with 39 points, 15 assists and 8 rebounds to lead the Nets to a 124-108 victory over the depleted LA Clippers.

‘Mild Sprain’ Pulls Senor Buscador Off Kentucky Derby Trail

Todd Fincher’s Senor Buscador is now off the Kentucky Derby Trail. After a key workout on Friday, by the next morning a mild sprain was discovered. According to Fincher, his colt will be taking time off, with the goal to comeback to racing at some point in the future. A couple days ago, as Ty Kennedy’s perspective went vertical, it then proceeded to accelerate along a horizontal trajectory. Such is the life of a jockey on-track. It is a series of beginnings and endings, but in between, there can be some incredible moments, as rider and Thoroughbred form a renewed alliance. Friday morning […]
