But the despair was in the air whenever Antetokounmpo launched one of his eight stress-inducing 3-pointers, continuing his woeful trend. It’s somewhat of a mind game with him, wanting to make Blake Griffin and the Nets pay for giving him that much space — all the while ignoring the interior hell he unleashed early before Middleton and Jrue Holiday saved them late.
The two-time NBA Finals MVP came up with his biggest game of the year just when the Los Angeles Clippers needed it the most. Facing elimination, Leonard scored 29 of his 45 points in the second half to carry the Clippers to a 104-97 win over the Dallas Mavericks in Friday’s Game 6. He made 18 of his 25 shots on the night, including 5-of-9 from three-point range.

“[Brandon] Belt and Buster [Posey] were looking at me like, ‘where did that come from?’ It was almost like I was looking slider, which I actually wasn’t. Just kind of saw it pop and tried to put a good swing on it. They were kind of looking at me like, ‘who is this guy?’"

Sunday was his second multi-homer game since his call-up. Prior to this season, he only had four career home runs, after stints with the Cardinals in 2018 and the Rangers the year after.
"Good baserunning is only about effort. It's a pet peeve of mine," Bryant said. "When you don't run hard to beat out a double-play grounder, that doesn't look good. It is so easy to run as hard as you can for four seconds at a time. My dad always reminded me that baseball is hard, you get frustrated when you make an out, so you take out your aggression by running as hard as you can. I have embraced that. I ground out to shortstop, I am so mad, I run as hard as I can to first base. Now we have fans back watching us play. You don't want to dog it to first base on a double play, someone bobbles a ball, and they still get the double play. You beat out the double play, and it might be a big run in the game."

DeGrom has not allowed more than one earned run during any of his nine starts this season, and with his seven shutout frames at San Diego on Saturday, he lowered his ERA for the season to 0.62 -- a full half-run lower than the legendary figure Gibson recorded so long ago. It's the lowest ERA ever for a pitcher through nine starts.Cleveland Indians face coverings
KEVIN GAUSMAN saw his own reflection in the numbers; their stark, unsentimental truth contained a judgment, and a promise. Everything he knew about himself as a pitcher could be found inside them: strengths, flaws, anxieties.

As seven of the eight teams have punched their tickets into the second round, the rest of the playoffs will have a completely different feel to them. None of the nine remaining teams, as the Dallas Mavericks vs. LA Clippers series has yet to be decided, have played in an NBA Finals in the last decade, with Dallas being the last to do it in 2011. With James out, it is somebody else’s turn.

My logic? The team spent 20 years with a sixth-round pick at the position and he did really well. They used a second-round pick on his successor in 2014 and Jimmy G. is no slouch. Meanwhile, the pelts of so many top-10 quarterbacks hang from Bill Belichick’s belt that he doesn’t have room for any more. The initial cost, the second-contract stress, the care and feeding of your franchise-to-be? Bill would just as soon find somebody in the second or third round.
“Those two tight ends, they can play wideout too,” Kubiak said. “Those guys are extremely versatile. They’re complete tight ends: run, block and line up in a two-point stance and go at you.

If Gurley were to be signed by the Ravens, the six-year veteran would most likely be competing with Hill for the third running back spot on the roster. The team could keep four players at the position like they did last year, but with how deep Baltimore’s roster is this offseason, it could be difficult to keep a plethora of running backs without sacrificing talent at another position.

That puts McCarthy into a new space in 2021. It's very different than last offseason, when McCarthy had a clean record and the Cowboys were still see-sawing with Prescott at the negotiating table. Back then, few thought that Dallas would run into the buzzsaw of injuries that it faced in 2020. And there were even a few stragglers who cast doubt about whether Prescott could land in the $40 million per season category. Flash forward one year and McCarthy’s record has a significant first-year smudge on it, while Prescott enters the season perched as the second-highest paid player in the league, trailing only the Kansas City Chiefs’ Patrick Mahomes. If that’s not enough to telegraph how important this season is for McCarthy, take some time and absorb that Prescott is only on a four-year deal. That’s four shots to make his $40 million annual salary worthwhile. And all of them are going to weigh heavily on the head coach.Tennessee Titans for Face Masks

It also will be interesting to see what the receivers have to say about Love during the minicamp.

If they praise Love too much, the ultra-sensitive Rodgers will not be happy.
