Irving, James turn the tables on Celtics with comeback of their own

May 24, 2017

LeBron James got into foul trouble in the first half, but Kyrie Irving stepped up and scored a career-high 42 points as the Cavs took down the Celtics 112-99. LeBron added 34 points in the win.CLEVELAND -- LeBron James claimed that some type of adversity would be necessary for the Cleveland Cavaliers to find their ultimate playoff success following an epic meltdown in Game 3 of the Eastern Conference finals.

Tuesday’s Game 4 against the Boston Celtics might have brought more adversity than even James bargained for. For the first time in his 14-year career -- more than 1,200 games played in the regular season and playoffs combined -- James picked up four first-half fouls, sending him to the bench midway through the second quarter with the Cavs down by double digits.

What followed was Cleveland’s turn for a comeback, erasing a 16-point hole to win 112-99 and take a 3-1 series lead.

While the basketball world tuned in wondering what James would do to make up for his disappearing act in Game 3, it was Kyrie Irving who stole the show with his most electrifying postseason game since Game 5 of the 2016 NBA Finals at Golden State, when he put up 41 points in a must-win scenario....

Nishikori Off To Good Start In Geneva

May 24, 2017

 Kei Nishikori hits six aces during his second-round match in Geneva on Tuesday. Second seed Kei Nishikori improved to 7-0 in his FedEx ATP Head2Head series with Kazakhstan's Mikhail Kukushkin on Tuesday, saving both break points to advance 6-4, 6-3 at the Banque Eric Sturdza Geneva Open. “Served really well today I think that's why I played very solid. I think everything was good today,” Nishikori said.

Nishikori, who accepted a late wild card into the ATP World Tour 250 event, is looking to get his clay season going in Switzerland. The World No. 9 fell to Juan Martin del Potro in the third round last week at the Internazionali BNL d'Italia in Rome.

Before that ATP World Tour Masters 1000 tournament, the Japanese right-hander suffered a right wrist injury that kept him out of Barcelona and forced him to withdraw from the Mutua Madrid Open before his quarter-final match. But Nishikori said all is better now. “Physically I think I'm very fit now. So I'm feeling very confident,” Nishikori said....

Gregg Popovich says team deserves credit for accomplishments this seasonSAN ANTONIO -- Gregg Popovich summed up the San Antonio Spurs' 2016-17 campaign Tuesday as a "great season" that "was more challenging" because the team had several new players as it transitioned into the post-Tim Duncan era.

The Spurs became the fifth 60-win team in NBA history to suffer a playoff sweep Monday when they were eliminated 4-0 in the Western Conference finals by the Golden State Warriors.

"I'm really happy for the group," Popovich said. "There's only one happy team out of 30. At the end of the day, everybody else is sad at some point. But if you have half a brain, you put things in perspective....

May 24, 2017

Unified junior welterweight titlist Terence Crawford, left, demolished tough contender Felix Diaz to defend his belts. Frank Franklin II/APAfter Terence Crawford, the unified junior welterweight world champion, finished polishing off Felix Diaz in a masterful 10th-round knockout victory Saturday night at Madison Square Garden in New York, attention immediately turned not only to his next fight but also to which network might televise it.

As far as the next opponent, Julius Indongo (22-0, 11 KOs), from the African country of Namibia, has the two major sanctioning body belts that Crawford (30-0, 21 KOs) doesn't have, and Indongo is the main target. The 34-year-old southpaw was ringside Saturday night with his promoter, Nestor Tobias of MTC Nestor Sunshine Promotions.

"Indongo wants the fight and we want to make the fight," Top Rank chairman Bob Arum told ESPN this week. "(Tobias) wants to make the fight and (Matchroom Boxing promoter) Eddie (Hearn), who has an option on his next fight, will cooperate."...
