Brandon Jennings – Carmelo Anthony trade talks took toll -NBA News


If you’re looking for reasons why the New York Knicks performed so far below expectations this season, there are plenty to choose from. The roster didn’t fit well, they never figured out how to defend as a unit and players never got comfortable running the triangle portions of Jeff Hornacek’s offense.

“We were trying to learn an offense that guys didn’t really know,” ex-Knick Brandon Jennings said Thursday night, after his Wizards handed the Knicks their 49th loss of the season.

Golf News – A strange, mathematic occurrence on top of the Masters leaderboard


Spring. To normal folk, it means blossom on the trees, blue in the sky and warmth in the air. To golfers, it means Amen Corner, Butler Cabin and green jackets. It means the Masters, and it’s time for the first major grades of 2017.

We take the top 10 in the Official World Golf Rankings and then throw in a couple of others to mix it up (like Nos. 52, 53 and 54 in the OWGR). Who’s plotting a steely sure path down those undulating fairways and across those lightning-fast greens? Who’s over-steering them, veering from minor error to major disaster?

Brad Marchand says his nasty spear was selfish and undisciplined-Sportsnet.ca


After getting away with one fine for two slew-foots earlier this season, Brad Marchand was in the spotlight again earlier this week after a brutal spear to the groin of Tampa Bay Lightning defenceman Jake Dotchin.

The play came in the first period of what was an important game for both teams: the Bruins hadn’t yet clinched and the Lightning were in a must-win situation against a team they were chasing. Marchand received five minutes and a game misconduct, but got lucky after the Lightning failed to score on the man advantage.

The Bruins won the game and clinched a playoff spot. Marchand received a two-game suspension, which will end his regular season — he was lucky to not have to sit down for a playoff game or two on top of that.

On Thursday, Marchand met with the media and talked about his latest cheap shot and resulting ruling from the league.
