DeMar DeRozan, short-handed Chicago Bulls hand Brooklyn Nets ‘bad, tough loss’

With DeMar DeRozan drawing James Harden and Kevin Durant with him on a drive into the paint, Lonzo Ball was all alone on the right wing as he launched a 3, crouched in anticipation and then turned toward courtside to the fans behind him after drilling a late dagger versus the Brooklyn Nets. Down four rotation players due to health and injuries, the Chicago Bulls kept their surprising start to the season by erasing an 11-point third-quarter deficit to give the Nets a stinging 111-107 loss at Barclays Center on Saturday night. The Bulls (16-8) have won three consecutive games and leave New York having beaten the Knicks at Madison Square Garden and the Nets […]

Los Angeles Lakers win second straight in OT, saying poor showing in Portland provided a push

Following a second straight overtime victory, this one coming 120-117 versus a strong Miami Heat team on Wednesday, Anthony Davis stated a loss to the Portland Trail Blazers last weekend might have been a turning point in the Los Angeles Lakers’ young season. “After that Portland loss, we took that personally,” Davis said of Saturday’s 115-90 defeat, a game in which L.A. trailed by as many as 34 points. “We’re not that type of team. No energy. No effort. A little bit of selfishness. And we just tried to change that.” Playing without LeBron James for the fourth consecutive game because of an abdomen strain and losing two more […]

Bella Sofia Dominant In Gallant Bloom At Belmont Park

In her first four lifetime starts, Bella Sofia had been triumphant three times. In her fifth start in the Grade 2 Gallant Bloom at Belmont Park in Elmont, N.Y., the 3-year-old filly added to that total with an easy victory over a short field of older fillies, going gate-to-wire to get her second graded stakes victory. Bella Sofia took the initiative at the start, darting out to a one-length lead over Lady Rocket, who was able to take up second position despite stumbling at the break. The 3-year-old filly went :22.46 for the first quarter and then :45.40 for the […]

Manchester City survive Nkunku hat trick to overwhelm RB Leipzig in nine-goal thriller

Christopher Nkunku scored a hat trick for RB Leipzig but ended on the losing side in a nine-goal thriller as Manchester City, last season’s Champions League runners-up, made a positive start in Group A with a 6-3 victory at the Etihad Stadium on Wednesday. Defender Nathan Ake put City ahead in the 16th minute with a header from a Jack Grealish corner and Pep Guardiola’s side doubled their lead 12 minutes later when a Kevin De Bruyne cross was headed into his own net by Leipzig defender Nordi Mukiele. The German side got back in the game with a 42nd-minute header from Nkunku, only for City to restore their two-goal advantage on the […]

It was the first road series victory for the Diamondbacks since April 23-25 when they took two of three from Atlanta. Asked if he remembered the last road series win, David Peralta paused […]

Sacramento Kings rout Boston Celtics to claim NBA summer league title

Louis King slammed home a two-handed dunk with a little more than two minutes left in the third quarter of the NBA summer league championship game, let out a massive shout and promptly flexed with authority. Fittingly, it was King who dominated for Sacramento and concluded with 21 points to help the Kings cruise to a 100-67 victory over the Boston Celtics on Tuesday night in front of a sparse, masked crowd that barely filled the Thomas & Mack Center’s bottom bowl, an uncommon scene for a title game that has packed the venue in recent years prior to the pandemic. It was Sacramento’s first summer league […]
