Сообщение factors contributing to its demise
HOUSTON — It required two minutes and 23 seconds for all the Rockets had worked for to be torn asunder Kosuke Fukudome Jersey , for their unrelenting charge to the best record in the Western Conference to be rendered moot, and the home-court advantage that accompanied that accomplishment to be blithely negated through the handiwork of Kevin Durant, Klay Thompson, and Draymond Green.

It took that long for Golden State to churn out a 12-2 run in the third quarter that yielded a double-digit lead and a stranglehold on Game 1 of the Western Conference Finals on Monday night at Toyota Center.

The Rockets had labored down the stretch of the regular season to bypass the Warriors in the standings and guarantee that this anticipated series would open in Houston. In one two-plus-minute flash, the Warriors snuffed the Rockets and left them reeling.

In the aftermath of their 119-106 victory, the Warriors were left basking in a triumph that included rare circumstances. It marked the first time since their opening-round series with the Los Angeles Clippers in 2014 that the Warriors began a postseason series on the road, and, like that April 19 game at Staples Center, they met the challenge in road environs.

Thompson remembered that game as well as the outcome of the subsequent contests in that series. So, while the Warriors welcomed the lauding, they were hasty to issue words of caution while attention shifted to Game 2, which will tip off on Wednesday night back at Toyota Center.

“It was a great win Bradley Zimmer Jersey , but this series is far from over,” said Thompson, who scored 28 points on 9-of-18 shooting. “I’ve been in this same situation, me and Draymond, before. We came out and won a tough game, and they (the Clippers) came back and beat us (138-98) in Game 2.

“So, it’s natural to relax, but we’re not going to relax. We’re still not where we want to be, and we’ve got a long way to go.”

Modesty aside, the Warriors don’t have nearly as far to go as the Rockets, who not only surrendered home court, they allowed Golden State to dictate the terms of the series opener.

Houston breezed through the opening two rounds of the playoffs in part by displaying historically judicious ball security Cheap Cody Latimer Jersey , posting a turnover rate (9.8 per 100 possessions) that ranked as second-best in playoff history over the 41 years that turnovers have been an official statistic.

In Game 1, the Rockets committed 16 turnovers and helped fuel the Warriors’ devastating transition offense. Golden State entered the series averaging 17.6 points per game in transition this postseason, far and away the best mark in the NBA. The Warriors scored 18 fast-break points in the opener, penalizing the Rockets’ surprising and sudden carelessness with the ball.

“If you miss shots or if you turn the basketball over, they’re out,” said Rockets guard James Harden, who paired a game-high 41 points with seven assists but also posted four turnovers. “They’re getting dunks, they’re getting 3s. I’m not sure how many transition points they had, but it was too many. That’s what they thrive on. So, we’ve got to do a better job of not turning the basketball over, taking better shots, and getting back (defensively) and matching up.”

The Warriors recorded a 60.6 effective field-goal percentage in the series opener David Dahl Jersey , which was par for the course even against the Rockets’ exceptional defense. Golden State produced a 61.8 effective field-goal percentage during the team’s three regular-season meetings, the highest such mark against Houston by any opponent. However, it wasn’t that the Warriors shot efficiently but rather the number of wide-open looks they generated by ball movement.

The Rockets rightfully claimed some responsibility, with a handful of blown defensive assignments resulting in uncontested shots for Thompson, Stephen Curry, and Nick Young. Combined, that trio shot 10 for 25 from behind the arc, with Thompson, in particular, burning the Rockets with open 3s after Houston was caught scrambling to defend multiple actions.

“There’s too many times we had just mental lapses,” Rockets coach Mike D’Antoni said. “We either didn’t switch properly or we didn’t switch hard enough.”

Houston could point to a myriad of other factors contributing to its demise, namely key role players P.J. Tucker Thurman Munson Jersey , Gerald Green, and Luc Mbah a Moute combining for seven points — two fewer than Young scored in 15 minutes off the Warriors bench — on 2-of-14 shooting. But what resonated were the miscues on both ends, fissures it can mend in advance of Game 2.

The objective is clearer for the Warriors: avoid the Game 2 letdown that undermined their postseason hopes four years ago.

“Nothing really changes,” said Durant, who scored a team-high 37 points. “We know it’s a long series, a seven-game series, so we know they’re going to come out with a lot of energy next game, try to even this thing up. So, we’ve just got to stay focused and be patient out there, and continue to keep playing hard.”

The Latest on Thursday night’s NBA draft (all times local):

11 p.m.

The Atlantic Coast Conference Lenny Dykstra Jersey , which tied its record with nine NCAA Tournament teams earlier this year, had the most players selected in the first round of the NBA draft: six players.

Duke accounted for half the ACC’s total with Marvin Bagley III, Wendell Carter Jr. and Grayson Allen.

After setting a league record with eight NCAA teams, the Southeastern Conference ranked second again with five first-round picks – but only two from Kentucky. The SEC also tied its own mark with four lottery picks for the second time in four years for the league.

The Big Ten matched its four NCAA teams with four first-round draft picks.

The Big 12 fell far short of matching its seven NCAA berths with only three first-round picks. But the Pac 12, which had Arizona’s Deandre Ayton taken No. 1 overall, matched its three NCAA teams with three draft picks.

And Villanova, the defending national champ, helped the Big East top its two No. 1 seeds. Three Wildcats wound up drafted among the first 30 picks.



9:10 p.m.

Michael Porter Jr. insists that he’s the best player in this draft.

Apparently, 13 teams disagreed.

Porter Jr. Sammy Sosa Jersey , whose college career at Missouri was all of three games because of back surgery, fell to the very last lottery spot in Thursday night’s draft. The Denver Nuggets decided Porter Jr. was worth the gamble, taking him with the No. 14 selection.

Porter played just 53 minutes in college and cancelled a workout in recent days because of what was described as a hip issue.

The freefall is going to cost Porter some money. The top pick in this year’s draft, Deandre Ayton, is guaranteed to make at least $6.7 million. Porter Jr. is only guaranteed $2.4 million.



9 p.m.

Before Deandre Ayton was selected by the Phoenix Suns with the first pick of the draft, he had signed a multimillion deal with Puma.

Ayton, one of three players in this class who made the choice to go with Puma over bigger brands such as Nike and Adidas, says it was an easy and personal decision for him.

He says, ”In the Bahamas Cheap Jaire Alexander Jersey , a lot of people cannot afford Nike or Adidas. Puma is the main brand and it’s very affordable, and growing up around that brand, I’m used to that brand.”

Ayton, who played at Arizona, is from Nassau, Bahamas. The inside of his draft tuxedo not only featured Bahama’s flag but also Nigeria and Jamaica ones. His mom is Jamaican and Bahamian. His dad is Nigerian.

Marvin Bagley III and Zhaire Smith also signed with Puma.

Ayton says he wants to ”start my own thing,” adding, ”I want to be dominant in my own brand, and I want to have my own signature one day to make it global.”



7:50 p.m.

Luka Doncic won a championship on Tuesday. For Real Madrid. In Spain.

Two days later Authentic Kenny Young Jersey , he’s in the NBA.

The Slovenian teenager -considered one of the best prospects to come out of Europe- was picked No. 3 overall by the Atlanta Hawks on Thursday night, amid reports that he would quickly be traded to Dallas for the No. 5 pick and a future first-round selection.

This marks the seventh time in the last 13 drafts that at least one player has gone in the top five and will be entering the NBA directly from an international team. Andrea Bargnani went No. 1 overall in 2006; the last top-five to come from an international roster was Dragan Bender, who went No. 4 to Phoenix in 2016.

The international touch on this draft is already pronounced, with No. 1 pick Deandre Ayton being born in the Bahamas.



7:40 p.m.

Only eight years after playing basketball for the first time, Deandre Ayton is the No. 1 pick in the NBA draft.

The Phoenix Suns made the long-expected move official on Thursday night, taking the Arizona center with the top overall pick. He’s the first Arizona player to go No. 1 in the draft; Mike Bibby was No. 2 in 1998 and Derrick Williams was No. 2 in 2011.

It’s history for Ayton, and history for his homeland as well.

Ayton is just the second player born in the Bahamas to go No. 1, joining Mychal Thompson – the top pick in the 1978 draft by the Portland Trail Blazers.

The 7-foot-1 Ayton, who didn’t start playing basketball until he was 12 Cheap Mason Cole Jersey , averaged 20.1 points and 11.6 rebounds per game in his lone college season. He’s the ninth consecutive one-and-done player to be taken No. 1 overall.



7:25 p.m.

The players in New York who were headed to the Green Room were individually introduced on stage before the draft officially started. They had their names announced, special accolades and where they are from. Parents also got to walk out with their sons.

Members of the Jr. NBA lined up to clap and cheer, creating a walkway for the draft prospects as they went to sit down at their respective tables.

This is the first time NBA has started the draft with an elaborate introduction.



6:40 p.m.

Avery Johnson is back at Barclays Center, home of some turbulent times.

Draft night will be a celebratory one for the Alabama coach, who is seated at the green room table of star Crimson Tide point guard Collin Sexton.

Johnson was the Nets‘ coach when they moved to Brooklyn in 2012 but was fired with a 14-14 record early in that first season shortly after they were blown out at home by Boston in a nationally televised Christmas Day game.

He eventually ended up at Alabama and coached here last season when the Crimson Tide played in the Barclays Center Classic. They finished their championship game los.

Сообщение ust one walk
More than two weeks after he returned to the disabled list for a second time this season Travis Shaw Jersey , the Boston Red Sox have no timetable for second baseman Dustin Pedroia’s return.

Pedrioa underwent surgery to repair a torn meniscus in his left knee last October and began the season on the disabled list. He began a minor league rehab assignment last month and was added to the Boston roster on May 26.

But Pedroia lasted just three games, going 1 for 11 with a pair of walks, and when soreness in the knee remained, the team put him back on the shelf on May 30.

“It was a major surgery,” manager Alex Cora said. “We didn’t know what to expect Authentic Uchenna Nwosu Jersey , so we are where we are now. We’re hoping that, yeah, he’ll be back. When? We don’t know. But I still believe he’s going to contribute this season and he’s going to help us to win.”

Without Pedroia in the lineup, Cora has turned primarily to Eduardo Nunez at second base with Brock Holt getting 17 starts as well. Overall, Red Sox second basemen have combined for a .614 OPS and rank second-to-last in baseball with a minus-12 Defensive Runs Saved.

Nunez will likely get the nod again Wednesday night as the Red Sox continue their three-game series with the Twins at Target Field behind left-hander David Price Authentic Jaire Alexander Jersey , who is 6-0 with a 2.64 ERA over his last seven starts.

“Better fastball command, just commanding the baseball better,” Price said of his recent success. “Making better pitches with runners in scoring position. That was a big problem for me in the times I struggled this year, just runners in scoring position. Four two-out runs in Oakland that day. All the runs were with two outs. Same thing my third outing against Tampa back at home. That was two-run outs as well.”

Price is 10-3 with a 2.52 ERA in 17 games, 16 of them starts Daniel Castro Jersey , against the Twins.

Lance Lynn, the Twins’ scheduled starter, is starting to look much more like the pitcher Minnesota had in mind when it signed the veteran right-hander to a one-year deal during spring training.

Lynn slumped out to a 8.37 ERA through his first five starts but has gone 4-2 with a 3.20 ERA in eight starts since, working at least six innings in all but two of those outings.

He struck out a season-high nine with just one walk his last time out but took his first loss since May 16 after the Tigers for tagged him for three runs in the seventh inning.

“You’ve got to get through the seventh there. I wasn’t able to do it,” Lynn said after the game. “Everything was still there. Just made one bad pitch and ran into a barrel. … Ended up giving up three runs and it cost us the win.”

Lynn has three career starts against the Red Sox Luis Gonzalez Jersey , going 0-1 with a 1.89 ERA and 11 strikeouts in 19 innings of work. He last faced Boston late in the 2017 season but did not take a decision after allowing two runs on seven hits over six innings.

Сообщение Lance McCullers
KANSAS CITY Zach Davies Jersey , Mo. — These are fun times for the defending World Series champion Houston Astros and trying times for the Kansas City Royals.

The Astros will seek their 11th straight victory Sunday when they close out a three-game series in Kansas City. It will conclude a 10-game Astros road trip in which they have won the first nine, making it the most successful 10-game trip in franchise history. Their previous best was 8-2 last year. They have scored at least six runs in six consecutive games.

“We’re having a good time right now, obviously, we’re in a good stretch,” Astros manager A.J. Hinch said. “And you have to enjoy the ups because there are a lot of times during the season where it can get frustrating.”

Dallas Keuchel picked up his first victory since May 13, allowing two unearned runs over six innings, while Max Stassi and Alex Bregman belted three-run homers as the Astros routed the Royals 10-2 on Saturday.

It has been an exasperating season for the Royals, who have lost five straight and 11 of 12. They are 2-12 in June Authentic Tre'Quan Smith Jersey , scoring 28 runs in 14 games. They fell to 10-25 at home.

They’ve also lost starting right fielder Jorge Soler for at least six weeks, probably longer, with a fractured left big toe.

“He had a CT scan that showed the crack isn’t big enough to warrant surgery right now,” Royals manager Ned Yost said. “We’ll check again in 10 days to see how it’s doing.

“He was very disappointed, very upset last night. I’ve never seen him that upset, a lot of words in numerous languages coming out of his mouth. He knew something was wrong. He was putting together a really, really good, solid year where he’s getting a chance to play every day and was doing some nice things.”

With the Royals’ Triple-A Omaha club playing Friday night in Tacoma Authentic Marcus Davenport Jersey , Wash., plus the two-hour time change, they did not have time to get a body to Kansas City for an afternoon game. They will announce Soler’s roster replacement Sunday.

“We’re not the Enterprise, you can’t beam them up,” Yost said.

Meanwhile, first baseman Lucas Duda will join the Storm Chasers on Sunday in Reno to begin a minor league rehab assignment. Duda hit .256 with four home runs and 19 RBIs in 37 games before going on the disabled list May 14 with right foot plantar fasciitis.

Rookie right-hander Brad Keller will make his fourth career start and 25th appearance in the series finale. Keller, who is a Rule 5 draft pick from the Arizona Diamondbacks, is 1-2 with a 2.31 ERA.

Keller is coming off his longest major league start Bill Lee Jersey , going 5 1/3 innings in a no-decision last Sunday in Oakland against the A’s. He allowed two runs on five hits.

He has limited opposing hitters to 30 hits, while walking 13 and striking out 23 over 35 innings.

Keller will face the Astros for the first time. Two of his three starts have been against American League West opponents, posting a 2.79 ERA over 9 2/3 innings.

He ranks fourth among AL rookie pitchers with 24 appearances and an opponents’ batting average of .231.

He was primarily a starter in the minors. In 106 appearances, he made 100 starts, including the last 50, but had not pitched above Double-A before this year.

The Astros will counter with right-hander Lance McCullers, who is 8-3 with a 3.83 ERA in 14 starts. He has yielded 66 hits and 35 earned runs over 82 1/3 innings with 32 walks and 81 strikeouts.

McCullers, who has a career 27-19 record with a 3.64 ERA Authentic Clive Walford Jersey , is 1-0 with a 2.14 ERA in three career starts against the Royals. He had a 2.57 ERA in two no-decisions starts last season against Kansas City, allowing four runs on eight hits over 14 innings, while striking out 18 and walking two.

Salvador Perez has two hits, both home runs, in six at-bats against McCullers.

Сообщение third-worst record in the NBA
WASHINGTON — The Washington Wizards are running out of time to right the ship before the NBA Playoffs begin.

What was looking like a signature win turned into a stunning loss Thursday night in Cleveland. The Wizards led by 17 points after Bradley Beal’s 3-pointer with 7:35 to go Authentic Daniel Kilgore Jersey , but LeBron James (33 points, 14 assists, nine rebounds) and the Cavaliers rallied for a 119-115 win.

The Wizards have lost three in a row and 12 of their last 18 to fall into seventh place with three games remaining in the regular season, starting Friday night when they host the Atlanta Hawks.

However, a seventh-place finish would likely mean a matchup with the now-No. 2 Boston Celtics, who will be without Kyrie Irving for the playoffs.

“We want to play better. We haven’t played well JT Riddle Jersey ,” Wizards coach Scott Brooks told the Washington Post before the game. “We’re not concerned of our matchups. We’re not concerned with who we’re playing. We’re not concerned where we’re seeded right now. We just got to be focused on how we’re playing and hopefully we’ll play much better than we’ve (been).”

In his third game back after a long absence, Wizards point guard John Wall had 28 points, 14 assists and three steals.

Washington trailed by 15 points in the second quarter but cut the margin to five by halftime and took control in the third.

However, Wall and Beal (19 points, nine assists) combined to go 2-for-9 from the field in the fourth quarter. Wall finished with six turnovers, including one in the final seconds that sealed the loss. Six Wizards scored in double figures.

“We wanted to win more than anything but the chips didn’t fall that way but we move on Authentic Kemoko Turay Jersey ,” Beal told the Post. “It’s definitely a statement game for both teams. They showed us what they’re bringing. We showed them what we’re bringing. So, I’m curious to see what happens if that matchup happens.”

Kelly Oubre Jr’s long-range shooting woes continued in the loss. He went 0-for-2 from three and is 2-for-35 beyond the arc in his last seven games.

The Hawks (22-57) remain last in the Eastern Conference and have lost 13 of 15 after dropping back-to-backs to the Miami Heat on Tuesday and Wednesday.

On Wednesday, Miami rested Dwyane Wade, Goran Dragic and James Johnson one day after clinching a playoff berth and still routed the Hawks 115-86.

The Hawks trailed 53-47, but Miami pulled away with a 31-21 third quarter.

“The guys are still trying. They are busting it at both ends,” Hawks coach Mike Budenholzer told the Atlanta Journal-Constitution. “Sometimes it just doesn’t work out Bob Uecker Jersey , not for lack of effort and hustle.”

Taurean Prince led Atlanta with 20 points, and Damion Lee and Tyler Dorsey each had 15. Hawks guard Antonius Cleveland returned after missing 18 games with a left ankle injury. He last played on Dec. 18 for the Mavericks. Cleveland scored five points and grabbed two rebounds in 12 minutes.

“On his rebounds, he showed his length and athleticism,” Budenholzer told the Journal-Constitution. “He’s still trying to get comfortable for us.”

With the loss, Atlanta maintains the third-worst record in the NBA, two games worse than the Dallas Mavericks. With three games remaining Joe Kelly Jersey , the Hawks are likely to finish in the bottom three and therefore have at least a 50/50 chance for a top three draft pick.

Washington took two of the first three meetings between the teams.

Сообщение ERA over his last nine starts
Three years after going undrafted out of Drury College Authentic Trenton Cannon Jersey , Trevor Richards has earned his first major league win.

Richards pitched six effective innings to lead the Miami Marlins to a 3-1 victory over the San Francisco Giants on Tuesday night.

”It’s great, it’s good to get that one out of the way,” Richards said. ”It’s been too long so it’s good to get it done.”

Richards (1-3) allowed two hits in his seventh major league start. The 25-year-old right-hander struck out two and walked three.

”He’s been a good story, he’s thrown the ball well,” Marlins manager Don Mattingly said. ”Obviously Pitcher of the Year last year in the minor leagues, really good reports on his makeup and how he works R.A. Dickey Jersey , competes, and pays attention so it’s good to see guys like that have success.”

Richards walked the first two batters of the game before settling in.

”I got a little too excited for the game, a little amped up and lost mechanics,” Richards said. ”I was able to settle down and keep going.”

Brandon Crawford’s groundout in the first inning drove in the only run for the Giants, who had just three hits.

”Three hits, that’s not going to work Authentic Bo Scarbrough Jersey ,” manager Bruce Bochy said. ”We had a hard time getting guys on base and just getting something going. That’s the ballgame.”

Kyle Barraclough pitched a perfect ninth for his fourth save in six chances. He has not allowed a run over his last 14 games and a career-best 13 2/3 innings.

JT Riddle had a two-run double for Miami, and Starlin Castro had two hits and knocked in a run.

”Just enough,” Mattingly said.

San Francisco right-hander Chris Stratton (7-4) worked out of a bases-loaded jam in the second inning, but ran into trouble in the third when he again loaded the bases. This time, Castro singled in Derek Dietrich and Riddle followed with a two-run double to right field.

”I let it get away from me there,” Stratton said. ”I thought I made some really good pitches. Give them credit.”

Stratton then retired his final 13 batters. He allowed four hits in seven innings.

RIDDLE’S BIG HIT

Riddle’s two-run double gave him his first multi-RBI game of the season and eighth of his career.

”(Stratton) left me a fastball over the middle of the plate after I had swung through two Masahiro Tanaka Jersey ,” Riddle said. ”I was a little late on those so I was thinking he might come back with another one, he did, left it over the middle, and I put a pretty good swing on it.”

TRAINER’S ROOM

Giants: 1B Brandon Belt (appendix) is expected to join the team in Los Angeles later this week after making progress from emergency surgery on June 2. ”He soft-tossed in Arizona, threw, did quite a bit of baseball activities Cheap Nyheim Hines Jersey ,” Bochy said. ”Tomorrow he’ll take regular batting practice so that’s the big step. If he feels fine doing that, then we’re getting close on him.”

UP NEXT

Giants: LHP Andrew Suarez (2-4, 5.06 ERA) will start the third game of the series on Wednesday in his hometown for the first time in front of a number of family members and friends.

Marlins: LHP Caleb Smith (5-6, 3.70) is 5-4 with a 2.70 ERA over his last nine starts.

Сообщение factor in the decision
A.J. Hinch took over as Houston’s manager before right-hander Lance McCullers’ rookie season in 2015 and the two have long held a special bond.

So when McCullers came off the mound after striking out a career-high in 12 in seven strong innings in an 11-4 win over the White Sox on Friday night Robin Yount Jersey , Hinch wanted to make sure he let his pitcher know how impressed he was with his big night.

He did that by enveloping him in a huge bear hug as soon as he reached the dugout when his work was done.

”I was so happy with the progress,” Hinch said. ”He’s got so many options now against any hitter. … I love the growth that’s happening for him as a major league starting pitcher. … He knows what he’s going through and how he’s taking steps forward. It’s cool to have a moment with him.”

Evan Gattis hit a three-run homer in Houston’s seven-run eighth to help the Astros to the victory.

McCullers (10-3) didn’t allow a hit until a single by Adam Engel with one out in the sixth, and gave up just three singles and one run. He kept the White Sox off balance with a flurry of curveballs to outdo his previous career best of 11 Ks.

”I came up in 2015 and was really just a young kid,” McCullers said. ”I had to learn a lot and he’s definitely been someone who has really helped me along the way in all phases as a pitcher, a baseball player and as a person. I give a lot of credit to A.J., the veterans Jack Morris Jersey , the staff.”

Chicago manager Rick Renteria raved about his curveball.

”His breaking ball today was sweeping with some depth,” he said. ”Strong breaking ball. It was a lot of breaking balls. Even going to the plate to be honest (and) looking for it, that thing was falling off the table pretty good.”

The Astros took a 1-0 lead in the third on an RBI single by Yuli Gurriel. Tim Federowicz hit a two-run double in the fourth to make it 3-0.

After Engel’s single in the sixth, Yoan Moncada sent him to third with a single to right field. The White Sox cut the lead to 3-1 with a third straight single, this one by Yolmer Sanchez. After a quick visit to the mound, McCullers was able to limit the damage when Jose Abreu grounded into a double play.

The Astros added a run in the seventh on an RBI double by Gattis to make it 4-1. They broke it open in the eighth inning thanks in part to the homer by Gattis Cheap Pernell McPhee Jersey , who finished with three hits and four RBIs. The towering shot off Hector Santiago landed on the train tracks atop left field. Two more runs scored in that inning on an error by right fielder Avisail Garcia when he misjudged a fly ball hit by Gurriel and it bounced behind him just inside the line and sailed into the stands.

Chicago starter Reynaldo Lopez (4-6) yielded six hits and three runs while tying a career high with five walks in 4 2/3 innings to snap a two-game winning streak.

McCullers won his fourth straight decision to join Charlie Morton as the first Houston pitchers to reach 10 wins this season.

He was tough from the start of this one, retiring the first six batters, including striking out the side in the second, before hitting Kevan Smith with a pitch to start the third. But he got right back on track, and struck out the next three to end the inning as part of 10 straight he sat down before Engel’s single in the sixth.

Garcia, whose career-best 14-game hitting streak was snapped Thursday night Authentic Harold Landry Jersey , hit a two-run homer with two outs in the ninth, and Daniel Palka followed with a solo shot off Brad Peacock.

TRAINER’S ROOM

White Sox: SS Tim Anderson was out of the lineup a night after being plunked on the left forearm. Anderson said he was sore but OK and Renteria expects him to return to the lineup Saturday.

Astros: Manager A.J. Hinch said he believes that C Brian McCann will return before the end of the regular season after he had arthroscopic surgery on his right knee Tuesday. ”I do expect him back,” Hinch said. ”I don’t know when … and he’s got a lot of things he needs to do to get back to playing, but I absolutely expect him to be back.”

SPECIAL WIN

The Astros dedicated Friday’s victory to Cameron Gooch, a 10-year-old who is fighting cancer and attended the game as part of his wish from the Make-A-Wish Foundation. Gooch was helped to the mound by Hinch and Gattis to throw out the ceremonial first pitch and they both wore orange armbands he gave to them during the game.

UP NEXT

Morton (10-2, 2.55 ERA) opposes James Shields (3-9 Cheap Sylvester Williams Jersey , 4.12) when the series continues Saturday. Morton took his second loss of the season in his last outing when he allowed six hits and two runs while striking out 11 in 6 2/3 innings against Tampa Bay. Shields yielded four hits and a run in 6 2/3 innings in his last start, but did not factor in the decision in a 5-3 loss to Cincinnati.

Сообщение something that could be a grea
Former NHL coach Dave Tippett is expanding his responsibilities with the group looking to put an expansion team in Seattle.

The former coach of the Arizona Coyotes and Dallas Stars has signed on as senior adviser for Seattle Hockey Partners LLC. Tippett was already working under President and CEO Tod Leiweke on infrastructure projects two-plus years before a franchise could begin play. It’s his first job since mutually parting ways with the Coyotes a year ago and taking last season off.

”You’re always trying to find new challenges in life Cheap Jaleel Scott Jersey ,” Tippett said by phone Monday, when his new role was first reported by the Seattle Times. ”I’ve been fortunate to be a player a long time, I was a coach and manager in the minors and head coach a long time in the NHL. Challenges are exciting. Everybody wants that in their life to do something different sometimes, and this is one of those times for me.”

Seattle is in the middle of the expansion process with the goal of renovating KeyArena and starting up for the 2020-21 season. NHL Commissioner Gary Bettman says the league’s board of governors could vote to approve a 32nd franchise as soon as this fall but has emphasized there is no specific timetable.

Tippett Authentic Thomas Rawls Jersey , who turns 57 in August, jumped at this opportunity when approached by Oak View Group CEO Tim Leiweke about the possibility of working for potential owners David Bonderman and Jerry Bruckheimer. His eldest daughter, her husband and Tippett’s three grandchildren live in nearby Bremerton, Washington.

That family connection to the Pacific Northwest helps Cheap Taven Bryan Jersey , even if an office job is different for someone who has coached at some level for more than two decades. He has a hand in helping with renovations, the design of a possible practice facility, the efforts to line up an affiliate in the American Hockey League and the beginnings of what the front office might look like.

”There’s lots of things that go in before you start selecting players,” Tippett said. ”Just lots of little things from the hockey side that I’ll be involved in Matt Belisle Jersey , just helping to try to get the thing up and moving.”

Tippett knew Tim Leiweke during his time as a Los Angeles Kings assistant from 1999-2002. He coached the Stars for six seasons and then the Coyotes for eight, taking each team to the Western Conference final.

While this job so far mirrors the one former NHL forward Murray Craven took with the expansion Vegas Golden Knights, Tippett could assume a bigger role at some point for Seattle and could be in line to be its first coach.

”I’m not going to rule anything out,” Tippett said. ”But right now this is intriguing to me. ”Very few people get an opportunity to be involved with a group to start a team from the ground up and when that opportunity kind of got put in front of me Cheap Anthony Averett Jersey , it was very exciting. So I’m looking forward to trying to build something that could be a great franchise.”

Houston’s deep lineup can create all sorts of problems for its opponents.

Like deciding whether to pitch to Jose Altuve or Carlos Correa.

Correa hit a game-ending RBI single in the 12th inning after Altuve was walked intentionally Lucas Giolito Jersey , sending the Houston Astros to a 4-3 win over the Kansas City Royals on Saturday night.

”He’s been a very clutch hitter,” Houston manager A.J. Hinch said. ”I’ve seen that base hit to right-center a handful of times during his short career. It does not surprise me that he put a good swing on a fastball away.”

George Springer led off the 12th with a walk, and Alex Bregman followed with a bloop single into shallow right field that fell between three players. An error by Ryan Goins allowed Springer to advance to third.

”We had the shift on,” Royals first baseman Hunter Dozier said of the bloop single. ”Just perfect placement. We all tried, but we just couldn’t get there.”

After Altuve was awarded first Authentic Harrison Phillips Jersey , Correa singled into the gap in right-center against Justin Grimm (1-3).

”You get in that situation you have to intentionally walk one,” Grimm said. ”Bases loaded and no outs, just battling with that guy. He put a good swing on a fastball in the outfield. It happened how it happened.”

Correa said he was trying to drive the ball to get a sacrifice fly or something to the outfield. It was his sixth career game-ending hit and first since August 1, 2016, against Toronto.

”I don’t know how many career walk-offs I have Authentic Chris Herndon Jersey ,” Correa said. ”Every single time they walk Altuve. They walk him because the best hitter in the game is hitting in front of me, but at the same time, it’s not an easy task to walk him and get me out.”

Collin McHugh (3-0) pitched a perfect inning for the win. Houston’s bullpen combined for six shutout innings.

”Everybody up and down the staff, we know that our job is to get outs no matter what time of the game it is called upon us to do it,” McHugh said.

Kansas City carried a 3-2 lead into the ninth Blake Treinen Jersey , but Houston rallied against Brandon Maurer. After Yuli Gurriel and Josh Reddick singled with one out, Evan Gattis hit a tying sacrifice fly to left. Marwin Gonzalez then walked, but Brian McCann grounded out to end the inning.

The Royals wasted a solid start by Ian Kennedy in their 10th loss in 11 games. Kennedy allowed two runs and four hits in seven innings.

Kansas City jumped in front on Dozier’s three-run homer in the fourth, but Correa hit a sacrifice fly and Gurriel homered to trim the Royals’ lead to 3-2 in the bottom half of the inning.

”Hunter gave us a big lift with the three-run jack,” Kansas City manager Ned Yost said. ”We just couldn’t really muster anything outside of that. If we could just find a way to tack on a run here or there it would be beneficial for us.”

Houston right-hander Lance McCullers Jr. struck out nine in six innings. He permitted four hits and walked two.

ALTUVE MOVING UP THE CHARTS

Altuve tied Terry Puhl for seventh in Astros history with 1 Cheap Tampa Bay Buccaneers Hoodie ,357 hits with his double in the fourth. Altuve tied Bill Doran for ninth place in franchise history with 611 runs when he scored in the fourth.

HE SAID IT

”He’s going to do that 99 times out of 100. He did exactly what I thought he would.” – McHugh on Correa’s game-ending hit.

TRAINER’S ROOM

Royals: 1B Lucas Duda (right foot) was recalled from his rehab assignment with Triple-A Omaha and started at designated hitter. He went 1 for 4 with a ninth-inning single. OF Paulo Orlando was optioned to Omaha to make room on the roster for Duda.

UP NEXT

Royals: RHP Jason Hammel (2-8) will make his 16th start of the season Sunday in the series finale. Hammel has a 2.85 ERA in nine appearances – eight starts – against the Astros.

Astros: RHP Gerrit Cole (8-1) will make his 16th start of the season looking for his seventh straight win. Cole walked a career-high five and allowed four runs for a second straight outing in earning a no-decision Monday against the Rays.

Сообщение thirst to succeed
Hue Jackson wasn’t going to turn the Browns offense over to just anyone.

Todd Haley met his high standards.

After operating for two seasons as both Cleveland’s coach and offensive coordinator Youth Marcus Davenport Jersey , Jackson hired Haley to take over his offense following the assistant’s six successful seasons with the Pittsburgh Steelers.

Haley wasn’t on Jackson’s radar after the Browns went 0-16 this season. But after Haley was fired by the Steelers following an opening-round loss to Jacksonville in the AFC playoffs, Jackson didn’t waste a moment and swooped in to nab the 50-year-old, who previously coached in Kansas City and is regarded as one of the league’s elite coordinators.

”He has been a guy that has adjusted his offense to successfully complement and taken advantage of the skillset of his personnel,” Jackson said.

”I’ve witnessed firsthand how prolific his offenses have been in the AFC North over the last six seasons. If I was going to turn over the play calling duties to someone else, it had to be to someone that was experienced and had a long history of success in this league. We were going to be patient about it because there is always a lot of movement in the early part of the offseason.

”When Todd became available Youth Breeland Speaks Jersey , I jumped at the opportunity to meet with him. Once we sat down and talked, it became quickly evident that Todd would be a great fit.”

The Browns made Haley’s hiring official on Wednesday. The Associated Press and other media outlets reported the move earlier this week.

With Pittsburgh, Haley oversaw the Steelers’ talented offense featuring Ben Roethlisberger, Antonio Brown and Le’Veon Bell. He won’t have as much to work with in Cleveland, but the Browns are expected to take a quarterback with No. 1 overall draft pick.

”This is a great opportunity Youth Mike White Jersey ,” said Haley, who went 19-26 with the Chiefs and led them to a division title in 2010. ”The Browns have a great history, great fans and deserve to have some fun and experience some winning. I want to help be part of that process.

”There is obviously a lot of work to do in order to get there, but I’ve always been excited about facing a challenge. There is no better feeling than when you can be a part of turning an organization around.

”Hue and I have had some good battles in competing against each other as coordinators and even as a head coach.”

The Browns announced the additions of Freddie Kitchens as running backs coach/associate head coach and Amos Jones special teams coordinator. Those moves were also previously reported.

Haley’s arrival is a much-needed infusion for the Browns, who have gone 1-31 in two seasons under Jackson. He knows his way around the league and especially the AFC North after 21 years as a pro coach.

Granted Youth Baker Mayfield Jersey , the Steelers had some elite players, but Haley got the most out of them. With Roethlisberger running the show, Pittsburgh’s offense ranked in the top 10 in scoring and yards in each of the past four seasons.

Brown has developed into perhaps the league’s top playmaker with five straight 100-catch seasons and Bell is a dual threat as runner and receiver.

Jackson was reluctant to give up play-calling duties. He was Cincinnati’s offensive coordinator for two seasons before joining the Browns, and was confident he would continue to have success as the play caller. But Cleveland’s offense has sputtered and finished last in the league in scoring this past season.

Haley knows Jackson’s thirst to succeed.

”He’s so competitive and winning is the only thing that’s important to him,” he said. ”You want to work with a coach like that. Hue and I share a lot of similar beliefs on how to be successful on offense. We have to score points Youth Jaire Alexander Jersey , protect the ball, protect the quarterback and develop players. It’s not too complicated, but at the same time, it is a great challenge. We are really looking forward to getting to work on it.”

Former NBA star Dennis Rodman says he will travel to Singapore ”for the historical summit” between President Donald Trump and North Korea’s Kim Jong Un Youth Jordan Akins Jersey , even though Trump says he wasn’t invited.

Rodman announced his plans via tweet Friday and thanked the cryptocurrency company PotCoin for sponsoring the trip. The tweet was quickly deleted and later reposted.

Rodman, who is among the few Westerners who have met the North Korean leader, said he would ”give whatever support is needed” to his ”friends” Trump and Kim.

White House officials have repeatedly said that Rodman would play no official role in the diplomatic negotiations and Trump said Thursday that the basketball legend had not been invited to the June 12 summit.

”I like him Youth Mike Gesicki Jersey ,” Trump said of Rodman. ”He’s a nice guy. No, he was not invited.”

Rodman’s tweet announcing the trip included a composite photo of him, Trump and Kim in front of the flags of both nations and the word ”unite.”

In a Fox News interview Thursday Youth Kendall Wright Jersey , White House Deputy Press Secretary Hogan Gidley said that Rodman is ”great on the court but negotiations should best be left to those who are good at it.”

”President Donald Trump is the best. So we expect he and Kim Jong Un to have an amazing conversation without Dennis Rodman in tow,” Gidley said.

Rodman has called the North Korean leader his ”friend for life.” Rodman first visited North Korea in 2013 with members of the Harlem Globetrotters and has returned several times. He held Kim’s daughter during a visit in 2013.

PotCoin has sponsored Rodman’s travel to North Korea in the past. In 2017, the Basketball Hall of Famer was photographed in North Korea wearing a PotCoin T-shirt and baseball cap. The cryptocurrency company gives marijuana businesses access to banking as an alternative to many financial institutions that will not do business with cannabis companies because marijuana is illegal under U.S. federal law.

Asked again on Friday whether Rodman would possibly be attending the summit Youth Armani Watts Jersey , Trump said: ”Dennis was a great rebounder and he wasn’t relatively speaking that tall.”

The meeting next week in Singapore will be the first of its kind between a leader of North Korea and a sitting U.S. president.

Сообщение Toronto or Boston in the second round
A year after Mike Babcock told arena staffers in Washington he’d see them a few days later for Game 7 Youth Kerryon Johnson Jersey , John Tortorella claimed his Blue Jackets would be back after winning Game 6 back in Columbus.

Now the trick is doing what Babcock’s Toronto Maple Leafs couldn’t last year: stave off elimination from the Capitals.

”It’s about finding a way to win a hockey game right now,” Tortorella said Sunday. ”There are so many ways of winning and losing in playoff hockey, so many ebbs and flows. That’s just the way the game is.”

Toronto is in the same spot as Columbus, down 3-2 in its first-round series against the Boston Bruins with Game 6 at home Monday night (7 p.m. EDT, NBCSN). The Maple Leafs held off a significant surge from the Bruins on Saturday night to avoid being eliminated in five and send the series back across the border.

”You got to look forward – there’s no sense and no good in looking back,” forward Connor Brown said. ”We’re going back to (Air Canada Centre) where we love to play. Our fans are going to be excited so right now we’re all just thinking about Game 6.”

Game 6 in the Bruins-Maple Leafs series comes after Boston took a 3-1 lead in the absence of suspended Toronto center Nazem Kadri. Goaltender Frederik Andersen needed to make 42 saves to keep the Maple Leafs alive as they hope to avoid another first-round exit.

The Blue Jackets are trying to do the same in their Game 6 Monday (7:30 p.m. Youth Michael Gallup Jersey , CNBC) after losing to the Capitals in overtime Sunday in Game 5. Four of the five games between Columbus and Washington have gone to OT compared to one total in the other seven first-round series.

”It’s been a crazy series,” Capitals forward Brett Connolly said. ”So much is happening. Calls and OT – it’s been fun. I think guys are enjoying it. It’s pretty nerve-wracking, but we’re going to keep pushing forward here. We know we have a good team. They have a good team, as well. It’s not going to be easy.”

It’s rarely easy for the Capitals, who are 2-5 in their past five chances to eliminate an opponent and 6-11 overall in those situations in the Alex Ovechkin era. They’re also 2-5 over that time in Game 7 at home, which they’d like to avoid another incarnation of Wednesday.

This is the same situation Barry Trotz’s team was in last year – an overtime-filled first-round series against Toronto – and it wrapped things up in six.

”If you have a chance to eliminate a team Youth Bo Scarbrough Jersey , you have to have that killer instinct,” Trotz said. ”You have to have that ability to close out a team. And it’s the toughest game to win because the other team is desperate. Their backs are against the wall. They’re there. They’re going to give their absolute max effort.”

No one doubts max effort from the Blue Jackets or the Maple Leafs staring down elimination. Columbus outshot Washington 16-1 in the third period of Game 5, and while that kind of ice-tilting onslaught is unlikely, the Blue Jackets are going to try to push the pace and ratchet up the pressure on the Metropolitan Division champions after blowing a 2-0 series lead.

”The belief in this room is incredible,” captain Nick Foligno said. ”There’s no better motivation than what we’re facing.”

Tactically, the Blue Jackets need to cash in on the power play after going 0 for their past 13. Goaltender Braden Holtby and Washington’s penalty kill have been the difference in the series.

”The penalty kill has been a major factor for us in the last few games Youth Danny Shelton Jersey ,” Trotz said. ”I think as a group, they’ve all stepped up. I don’t think I can single out anybody. They’ve all stepped up. The penalty kill is as good as the five guys that you have, your four and your goaltender. They’ve been very committed there.”

WAITING IT OUT

The Vegas Golden Knights and San Jose Sharks will meet in the second round of the Pacific Division bracket, while the Winnipeg Jets await the winner of the Nashville-Colorado series. In the East, the Atlantic Division-champion Tampa Bay Lightning finished off New Jersey on Saturday and will face Toronto or Boston in the second round.

NEW ORLEANS — The playoffs essentially began a month ago for both the New Orleans Pelicans (47-34) and the San Antonio Spurs (47-34).

While both teams have clinched Western Conference playoff spots A. J. Pollock Jersey , Wednesday night’s regular-season finale at the Smoothie King Center is the finish line in a marathon race for playoff seeding.

Unless Memphis pulls off a monster upset and defeats the Oklahoma City Thunder on the road Wednesday, the Pelicans, currently the fifth seed, would finish anywhere from the fourth, fifth or sixth seed with a victory over the Spurs. The Pelicans would drop to the eighth seed with a loss, setting up a first-round matchup with the No. 1 Houston Rockets.

The Spurs also could fall anywhere from the fourth to the eighth seed, given a myriad of possibilities.

The only solace for Spurs coach Gregg Popovich is that the Spurs Cheap Anthony Averett Jersey , playing most of the season without All-Star forward Kawhi Leonard, have made the playoffs for the 21st consecutive season. That streak is 11 years longer than Popovich’s nearest competitor, Erik Spoelstra of the Miami Heat.

“Oh, it’s wonderful,” Popovich said, using his characteristic deadpan delivery Monday night after the Spurs clinched their playoff spot with a 98-85 victory over Sacramento.

“They deserve a lot of credit, done a great job Authentic Oren Burks Jersey ,” Popovich said of his players. “I’m real proud of them.”

The Pelicans have won four consecutive games to qualify for the playoffs for the first time since 2015. Coach Alvin Gentry said there are so many possible playoff matchups that he wants his team to focus on what it can control.

“We’re just going to do the best we can do (to beat the Spurs), and whoever we play, we play,” Gentry said. ‘We just want to continue to play good basketball.”

The Pelicans’ four-game winning streak could not have been timelier, and forward Anthony Davis has been the catalyst during the streak. Davis, who has made the playoffs only once in his five NBA seasons, said he was proud the Pelicans did not collapse after the season-ending Achilles injury to center DeMarcus Cousins on Jan. 26.

“A lot of people counted us out when he went down Rafael Devers Jersey , but we just kept fighting, changed the way we play a little bit,” Davis said. “We believed in ourselves — all the guys in this locker room. We just wanted to make sure no matter what happens with anybody else — that we were in. This whole road trip we came out aggressive.”

The Pelicans have won two of three against San Antonio this season, winning 107-90 at home on Nov. 22 and 121-116 in San Antonio on Feb. 28 and losing 98-93 in San Antonio on March 15. Davis had averaged 25.3 points on .509 shooting and 13.3 rebounds in the three games, while the Spurs have been led by Dejounte Murray with 16.7 points, including .667 from 3-point range and 8.0 rebounds.

The Spurs said Leonard would not be available to play against the Pelicans as he returns from a season-long quad injury.

Pelicans point guard Rajon Rondo, who delivered an off-the-backboard assist to Davis for a thunderous Authentic Marcus Davenport Jersey , one-handed dunk against the Los Angeles Clippers on Monday night, said he likes what he sees in New Orleans’ recent play.

“I think if we come in with the right focus, the right mindset — obviously, you’ve got to make some shots — we can beat anyone,” Rondo said. “We know that as a team.”

TORONTO — The Florida Panthers will be trying to keep their playoff drive alive Wednesday night while the Toronto Maple Leafs will make another attempt to set a franchise record for wins in a season.

The Panthers (39-28-7) defeated the New York Islanders 3-0 Monday night as they pursue the New Jersey Devils for the second wild-card spot in the Eastern Conference.

“I really haven’t been paying much attention to what’s going on with the Devils and those other teams Rob Refsnyder Jersey , but obviously we know it’s tight and you can’t afford to lose at this point,” said Panthers center Nick Bjugstad, who scored a goal Monday. “There’s not much breathing room here at the end of the year. We’ve got a tough schedule coming up here, a lot of games, but it’s going to be a fun challenge.”

The Maple Leafs (45-24-7) are secure in their playoff spot but will be trying for a franchise-record in wins for a season with 46. That goal was thwarted by a 3-2 loss to the Buffalo Sabres Monday night in which they had a 41-27 advantage in shots on goal. The loss also stopped a franchise-record 13-game home winning streak and prevented the Maple Leafs from winning their 27th home game of the season, which also would be a team record.

“I think we got a nice warning against Detroit (a 4-3 win over the Red Wings Saturday) that no matter if the teams are playing for the first draft pick or whatever or they’re playing for the playoffs, they’re going to bring it every night Authentic Josh Sweat Jersey ,” Maple Leafs goaltender Frederik Andersen said. “I think we came prepared, I think we played well tonight — we could have hit the net a little bit more maybe, but I think we had a lot of good opportunities. Those nights are going to happen, and I think we played a good game overall.”

A former Maple Leafs goaltender, James Reimer, has played a big part in the Panthers attempt at a playoff spot.

Reimer made 32 saves for his fifth consecutive win Monday. The backup to Roberto Luongo earned his fourth shutout of the season. He is 7-1-0 since returning from injury Feb. 12.

“I just tried to be big in there and try to read the puck as best as I could and be on it,” Reimer said. “And then rely on your D-men to clear any garbage Justin Grimm Jersey , and they did a great job.”

“Reims has answered the bell every time,” Panthers coach Bob Boughner said. “This is the part of the season you need guys stepping up and he’s been one of our guys that’s stepped up for us. His preparation is real good and you can see he was focused right from the drop of the puck tonight, made some big saves.”

Monday night, the Panthers signed their first-round draft pick from 2016, center Henrik Borgstrom to a three-year entry-level contract. He could join the team as soon as Wednesday.

Maple Leafs coach Mike Babcock said there are things his team can improve on from their performance on Monday.

“Obviously, I thought our turnovers in our own zone in the first period; I thought we were a little bit loose,” he said. “We’ve got to hit the net Authentic Tarvarius Moore Jersey , we had so many opportunities in the offensive zone and we failed to hit the net. We missed the net, just looking right here, it says 26 times we missed the net. So, I mean, that would be part of it too. In the end, we had every opportunity to win, we were a little too loose and we didn’t win. Let’s get back to work.

“I thought we had lots of good things Randy Johnson Jersey , but then we got carried away with it and gave up some chances. Now, the puck has got to stay out too. The bottom line is we did lots of good things, we didn’t win the game. I still think we can be better without it at times. I thought we turned it over a bit too much — too cute — and in the end you go home disappointed.

Сообщение defensive strategy against
Paul George has found his shot.

Actually Authentic Derrius Guice Jersey , the Oklahoma City Thunder All-Star has been on a roll heading into the playoffs.

In the five regular season games in April, he averaged 27.6 points and made 41 percent of his 3-pointers and 90 percent of his free throws. He closed the regular season with a 40-point outburst against Memphis.

He kept it up in OKC’s playoff opener, scoring 36 points and setting a Thunder playoff record with eight 3-pointers as Oklahoma City beat Utah 116-108 .

It took George a minute to consistently take the scoring pressure off Russell Westbrook. He struggled on offense right after the All-Star break and said he couldn’t find his shot.

”To his credit, when he was going through a little bit of that slump where he wasn’t shooting the ball particularly well, he really put extra work in,” Thunder coach Billy Donovan said. ”I felt like he was really driven and focused to work his way through it.”

A couple of former OKC standouts are also thriving early in the postseason.

Victor Oladipo – the player who George was traded for – was just as impressive for Indiana . The Pacers hope to take a 2-0 lead the series against Cleveland and put LeBron James and the Cavaliers on the ropes Wednesday.

Another former Thunder player, Houston’s James Harden Bobby Doerr Jersey , was the best of the George-Oladipo-Harden trio. The Rockets MVP candidate scored 44 points in Houston’s win against Minnesota .

If George is to keep rolling for the Thunder in Game 2 Wednesday he’ll have to do it with a right hip bruise, and after being limited in practice on Tuesday.

”He was not able to do very much today,” Donovan said. ”He did some things in practice. Not much. We’ll probably see where he’s at after shootaround tomorrow and probably evaluate him going into the game.”

JAZZ AT THUNDER

Oklahoma City leads 1-0. Game 2, 7 p.m. Central, NBA TV

NEED TO KNOW: The fact that George was Oklahoma City’s leading scorer in the opener is significant. He’s the first player other than Kevin Durant or Westbrook to lead the Thunder in scoring in a playoff game since Game 1 of the Western Conference semifinals against San Antonio in 2016. Oklahoma City has played 18 playoff games since then.

KEEP AN EYE ON: Utah C Rudy Gobert. He had 14 points and seven rebounds in the opener and committed four fouls. The Jazz likely will need more from him to be competitive.

INJURY UPDATE: Utah rookie guard Donovan Mitchell suffered a left foot contusion in Game 1, and a Jazz spokesman said he is questionable for Game 2. He went through portions of Tuesday’s practice. He had 27 points and 10 rebounds in the opener after averaging 20.5 points in the regular season.

PRESSURE IS ON: Jazz G Ricky Rubio and Utah F Joe Ingles. Rubio scored 13 points on 5 for 18 shooting in the opener. He will need to hit open shots and take pressure off Mitchell in Game 2. Ingles struggled to get the ball against George’s defense in Game 1. He also had just one assist in Game 1, well below his regular season average of 4.8.

TIMBERWOLVES AT ROCKETS

Houston leads 1-0. Game 2 Authentic Donte Jackson Jersey , 9:30 p.m., TNT

NEED TO KNOW: Houston center Clint Capela played a major role in Game 1, scoring 20 points and grabbing 10 rebounds before halftime. Harden believes Capela could be the X-factor in this series and raved about his work in the first game. ”You could just see a different Clint, he was running so fast and I had no choice but to get him the ball,” Harden said. ”And then defensively the way he’s been blocking shots, rebounding, he was just like a deer out there.”

KEEP AN EYE ON: Houston’s 3-point shooting. The Rockets won Game 1 despite making just 10 of 37 3-pointers. James Harden was 7 for 12 on 3-pointers Authentic Joel Iyiegbuniwe Jersey , but Trevor Ariza, P.J. Tucker, Eric Gordon and Paul combined to make just 3 of their 22 tries.

INJURY UPDATE: Houston’s Ryan Anderson, who missed the last four regular-season games and the playoff opener with a sprained left ankle, returned to practice on Tuesday and could play on Wednesday.

Minnesota coach Tom Thibodeau said that Jimmy Butler’s right wrist is ”fine” despite his wearing a wrap on it during pregame warmups on Sunday.

PRESSURE IS ON: Minnesota’s Karl-Anthony Towns. The Wolves need the All-Star big man to rebound in Game 2 after scoring just eight points in the opener. Towns said he needs to ”play better all-around” and Thibodeau said he has to ”be more active” to combat Houston’s double-teams and switching.

PACERS AT CAVALIERS

Indiana leads 1-0, Game 2, 7 p.m. TNT

NEED TO KNOW: LeBron James has never lost a first-round series Justin Bour Jersey , going 12-0. This is the first time he’s been down 0-1 in an opening round. Cleveland had won its first 10 playoff games in each of the past two seasons.

KEEP AN EYE ON: Cleveland’s defensive strategy against Victor Oladipo. Indiana’s quick All-Star guard hit six 3-pointers – in the opener. The Cavaliers had some success in blitzing Oladipo, but he made good decisions with the ball and took advantage when the Cavs switched defenders by exploiting matchups against Cleveland’s slower post players.

INJURY UPDATE: Cavs starting point George Hill is feeling the effects of a hard shot to the back on a screen set by Indiana’s Trevor Booker in Game 1. Hill practiced on Tuesday and said he’s doing better, but his status remains uncertain for Game 2. Also, Cleveland forward Kyle Korver said his right foot has improved. The injury has bothered him for more than a month and limited him to four minutes in the opener.
