Victor Oladipo scored 25 points and the Houston Rockets shook off a terrible first quarter and held on late to defeat the Portland Trail Blazers 104-101 on Thursday night.

Brees, Saints pull away late for 21-9 playoff victory over Bears

Drew Brees will get to celebrate his 42nd birthday by preparing for a playoff game that will also feature the one active NFL quarterback older than him. Brees completed 28 of 39 passes for 265 yards, connecting with Michael Thomas and Latavius Murray for touchdowns, and the New Orleans Saints overpowered the Chicago Bears 21-9 in an NFC wild-card game Sunday. The triumph for the Saints (13-4) and Brees, who turns 42 on Friday, sets up a divisional-round meeting next weekend in the Superdome with Tampa Bay and 43-year-old QB Tom Brady. The Saints won each regular season matchup with the NFC South rival by double digits. “The minute that […]

Authentic Retired, To Stand For $75,000 At Spendthrift

Authentic, the Grade 1 Breeders’ Cup Classic and G1 Kentucky Derby winner has been retired to B. Wayne Hughes’ Spendthrift Farm in Lexington, KY where he will stand in 2021 for a fee of $75,000 S&N. “Authentic is a once-in-a-lifetime kind of horse, and Mr. Hughes is very proud that we are able to share him with 5,300-plus MyRacehorse owners through what has been an incredible run. That alone made this decision different and very difficult. Ultimately, we just felt there wasn’t a lot more to accomplish for a Kentucky Derby and Breeders’ Cup Classic winner, so we have made the decision […]

Simona Halep gets past Amanda Anisimova in French Open rematch

Simona Halep had no trouble reversing the result of her loss to Amanda Anisimova at last year’s French Open. Halep secured the rematch 6-0, 6-1 in just 54 minutes on Friday to reach the fourth round. Anisimova made 32 unforced errors to Halep’s seven. The top-seeded Halep extended her winning streak to a career-best 17 matches as she seeks a third Grand Slam title. She won the trophy at Roland Garros in 2018. Anisimova upset Halep, 29, in straight sets in the quarterfinals in Paris in 2019. But this one went Halep’s way from the beginning thanks in part to the 19-year-old Anisimova’s […]

Toronto Blue Jays clinch playoff spot

The Toronto Blue Jays have clinched a spot in the postseason for the first time since 2016 with Thursday’s 4-1 victory over the Yankees at Sahlen Field in Buffalo, N.Y., and now the real fun begins. While Ryu and contributions from the young core perfectly fit the Blue Jays’ plan to return to the postseason, so many other parts to this story don’t. This will be the first and, hopefully, the last time that Toronto clinches with just its 30th victory of a shortened season, and no one ever expected this celebration to take place in Buffalo. It might all […]

Clayton Kershaw records 2500th career strikeouts

Clayton Kershaw reached two career strikeout milestones and held Arizona hitless into the sixth inning Thursday night, leading the Los Angeles Dodgers past the Diamondbacks 5-1 for their fifth consecutive victory. While racking up eight strikeouts over six scoreless innings, Kershaw (5-1) became the 39th pitcher in major league history with 2,500 strikeouts when he fanned Nick Ahmed in the second.

AJ Pollock had a pinch-hit homer and Mookie Betts added an RBI single […]

CP3 leads Thunder’s rout of cold-shooting Lakers

Chris Paul had 21 points, seven rebounds and six assists in the Oklahoma City Thunder’s 105-86 triumph over the poor-shooting Los Angeles Lakers on Wednesday night. Danilo Gallinari scored 19 points and Steven Adams had 18 for the Thunder (42-25), who never trailed in their first victory over the Lakers in four meetings this campaign. Oklahoma City pulled even with Houston for the fifth seed in the Western Conference playoff picture with five games left. The 86 points were the fewest by the Lakers — and by a Thunder opponent — this season. “We just tried to stick to the […]
