OT So we just gonna act like Maya Moore didn't score the 2nd most points in WNBA history last night?

By CosbySweater - 2 hours ago



Quote:

MINNEAPOLIS -- Maya Moore put on one of the best scoring displays in the history of the WNBA and it was barely enough to lift Minnesota.

Moore scored 48 points, the second most ever in the league, to help the Lynx beat the Atlanta Dream 112-108 in double-overtime.

She hit 16 of 30 shots from the field, including 7 of 9 from beyond the arc. The 48 points are just short of the record 51 scored by Tulsa's Riquna Williams last season.


"We needed every one of them," Lynx coach Cheryl Reeve said of Moore's points. "And she had their full attention. That's what's impressive. They're not trying to let her drop 48 points on their heads."

Moore now has scored 30 or more points in 10 games this year, tying the league record with 10 games to play. She also displayed her versatility on Tuesday with 10 rebounds, four assists, two steals and a blocked shot at the end of regulation to force overtime.


She attributed her big night to keeping the game plan simple.

"I knew the one way I could hurt my team was by thinking too much," Moore said. "If it's my shot and I'm open, shoot the ball. If it's not, pass it to an open teammate. . I'm just thankful. Sometimes they go in, sometimes they don't."

Lindsay Whalen scored 26 points and Rebekkah Brunson added 17 points and 12 rebounds in her first game of the season. The 2013 All-Star missed the first 23 games of the season after undergoing knee surgery.

Sancho Lyttle had 26 points and 12 rebounds, while Tiffany Hayes scored 22 and Angel McCoughtry added 21 for the Dream, who were playing without coach Michael Cooper. The team announced Monday that Cooper is taking a temporary leave of absence and will have surgery this week in Atlanta. The Dream say a full recovery is expected.

"As a group, to go through what they're going through and remain focused, and to come in here and play in this type of environment and play so well, I'm really proud of this team," Atlanta assistant coach Karleen Thompson said.

The Dream trailed by as much as 14 in the fourth quarter, but they closed regulation on an 18-4 run to force overtime. In the first extra session, Hayes and McCoughtry hit consecutive 3s to put Atlanta on top 95-89. But Moore answered with a 3 of her own and Whalen eventually tied it with a jumper.

In the second overtime, Moore drained two long jump shots as the Lynx pulled out to a five-point lead and Tan White made a pull-up jumper with 38.4 seconds left to ice Minnesota's fifth straight win.

Moore had 23 points in a fast-paced first half and finished regulation with 40. She's had to pick up some of the scoring burden in the absence of Seimone Augustus, who missed her eighth straight game with bursitis in her left knee.

"This team has a lot, and you have to pick and choose your poison with them," Thompson said. "But Maya was just in the zone tonight. She's obviously a great player, and she's capable of doing that on any given night."

MLB McGwire on Canseco: "It's too late" ESPN article

By markov - 2 hours ago


PITTSBURGH - Mark McGwire wants nothing to do with any reconciliation attempts by his former "Bash Brother" Jose Canseco.

"It's too late. I don't care to ever speak to him again," McGwire told ESPNLosAngeles.com on Wednesday. "What he did was wrong."

Canseco apologized to McGwire while attending the*Oakland A's*commemoration of the 25th anniversary of their 1989 World Series victory last weekend. He had accused McGwire of using performance-enhancing drugs in*his 2005 book, "Juiced: Wild Times, Rampant 'Roids, Smash Hits & How Baseball Got Big." McGwire admitted to using PEDs in 2010.



Mitch Haddad/Getty Images
They were "brothers" once, but for McGwire (left), there is no love lost between him and Canseco.
It's not the first time Canseco has made a point of publicizing his efforts to reconcile with McGwire. In September 2012, he showed up at a St. Louis Cardinals game at Dodger Stadium wearing a black T-shirt that read, "Sorry for everything, Mark." At the time, McGwire was the Cardinals hitting coach.

"I can care less what he does," McGwire said.

McGwire, now the Los Angeles Dodgers hitting coach, said he got a text from former A's teammate Mike Gallego telling him he was missed at the ceremony. McGwire was with the Dodgers in St. Louis at the time. He and Dodgers pitching coach Rick Honeycutt, a key reliever on the '89 team, each taped video tributes to that A's team during spring training.

Canseco had not been at the Coliseum since his playing days ended.

"Mark, to me, when I played with him, I looked up to him," Canseco told reporters. "I idolized him for a lot of reasons -- the guy was on the field, he was off the field. It haunts me till this day that I said those things about him, even though obviously they were true. I could have gone about it a different way and gotten my point across."

Neither Canseco nor McGwire attended the team's 20-year anniversary, and Canseco said he has had no contact with McGwire since the book came out nearly a decade ago.

"I regret writing the book for sure," Canseco said. "I battled and fought with the thought of, 'I wish I never used chemicals or steroids.' But I don't see how back then when I was only 19, 20 years old, I didn't really know the situation."

Some of Canseco's former teammates were more forgiving, with Dennis Eckersley telling the Associated Press, "I mean, come on, man. It's been a long time. Time heals everything."

The A's swept the San Francisco Giants in the 1989 World Series, which was interrupted by a massive earthquake centered in the nearby Santa Cruz Mountains. The A's honored the team, their last championship club, on the field before Saturday's game against Baltimore.

Wish the NBA package was around back then..... Luckily they were on TV a decent amount of times and still had the playoffs...... Don't think they lost 2 games in a row, until the end of the season when they started resting players

MMA Report: Olympic Gold Medalist Henry Cejudo Negotiating Contract with UFC

By dadon85 - 2 hours ago

@Gramz

Your boy





One day after withdrawing from the main event of Legacy FC 34, Olympic wrestling gold medalist Henry Cejudo is reportedly in contract negotiations with the Ultimate Fighting Championship.

Fox Sports reported the news during Wednesday’s episode of “UFC Tonight.” Although he was unable to give specifics, Legacy Fighting Championship promoter Mick Maynard on Tuesday told Sherdog.com that Cejudo pulled out of his Aug. 29 bout for “a good reason.”

Cejudo is 6-0 since beginning his MMA career in March 2013, including decision wins against Ryan Hollis and Elias Garcia under the Legacy banner. However, the Arizonan failed to make the flyweight limit for both Legacy appearances, and it is likely a move to the UFC would draw even more scrutiny for his prior weight issues.

MMA Jones-Gustafsson 2 Postponed; DC gets Title Shot

By Ricky Towel - 2 hours ago

Quote:

The long-awaited rematch between UFC light heavyweight champion Jon Jones and Alexander Gustafsson, scheduled for UFC 178 in Las Vegas on September 27, has been postponed after the Swede suffered an injury in training this week. Although there are scores of hungry challengers waiting for a crack at JonesÂ’ crown, few can rival Daniel Cormier's burning desire to topple the champ at the MGM Grand Garden Arena.

And now that matchup is set. UFC officials made the announcement of the main event switch to Jones vs. Cormier on Wednesday.

The unbeaten Cormier, a two-time Olympic wrestler and former heavyweight contender, has long had his sights set on Jones, with his move to 205 pounds in 2014 predicated on a shot at his longtime rival. Since his move, the 35-year-old Louisiana native has stopped Patrick Cummins and Dan Henderson, and following his submission of “Hendo” in May, he made no secret of his desire to meet his fellow wrestler as soon as possible.

“Jon Jones, you can’t run away from me forever,” he told commentator Joe Rogan in the Octagon. “I’m the kid at the wrestling tournament that is always in your bracket. No matter where you go, I’m coming. You better hurry because I’m getting better.”

The 27-year-old Jones, champion since 2011, has made a record-setting seven successful title defenses at 205 pounds, with wins over former champions Quinton Jackson, Lyoto Machida, Rashad Evans, and Vitor Belfort.

In his most recent bout, Jones decisioned Glover Teixeira at UFC 172 in April, and while the plan was for Jones to meet Gustafsson in a rematch of their classic 2013 bout, the champion expressed his desire to fight Cormier first, even before the contracts were signed.

Some fans weren’t happy with that declaration, and Jones took his case to Instagram, saying “Asking for an undefeated Olympic wrestler, Strikeforce champion makes me somehow a coward?”

But after GustafssonÂ’s unfortunate injury and subsequent removal from the UFC 178 card, both Jones and Cormier will get the fight they wanted all along, and the fans get a fitting main event for a stacked card that also features Irish star Conor McGregor vs. Dustin Poirier, the return of Dominick Cruz vs. Takeya Mizugaki, the middleweight showdown between Tim Kennedy and Yoel Romero, and Cat ZinganoÂ’s comeback bout against Amanda Nunes.

NBA New York Knicks Waive Shannon Brown

By italiansteve - 2 hours ago

The roster is down to 14ish men.

Shannon Brown's contract with the Knicks would have become fully guaranteed if New York didn't cut him before August 1. Well, they cut him before August 1:

*tweet embedded

It makes sense that Brown would be cut-- he is a modestly effective player at a relatively deep position for the Knicks-- but this is still a bit surprising. I figured Brown had earned some staying power-- even over a guaranteed guy like Wayne Ellington-- because he has preexisting relationships with Phil Jackson and Derek Fisher and because he joined the SummerKnicks in Las Vegas to help teach the rugrats some triangle.

Anyway, no huge loss here, but snaps to Shannon for coming out to Summer League, and sorry it had to end like this. Thanks for the couple of cool dunks at the end of last season.

The Knicks now have 14 men (including the non-guaranteed-until-mid-September Jeremy Tyler) under contract. Brown's departure gives them room to sign someone else, perhaps second-rounder Cleanthony Early.
