Durant delivered his dagger to silence Cleveland’s crowd.

The shot clock was running down, I was pretty far out, I just wanted to get a look, Durant said. I didn’t want to run there and shoot a bad shot, fall on the ground and they got numbers going the other way so I decided to pull up.

James made a layup to pull the Cavs within four, it was too little too late as the Warriors closed it out and beat Cleveland for the fourth straight time in finals games.

A 25-year-old defenseman, Miller had seen regular time for two seasons with the Bruins. It was expected that the Bruins would protect him over 29-year-old defenseman Kevan Miller because Colin is younger and has top-four potential. The Bruins did not. So Colin Miller was selected and promptly led all Knights defensemen in points (41) while playing 82 games. It turns out Boston decided to hang on to Miller Lite.

You can see, it’s like all of a sudden he’s running on an ice rink, Bush’s lawyer Tim Cronin told jurors in opening statements, via the St. Louis Post-Dispatch. Whatever risks a football player assumes, concrete 11 yards outside the sidelines is not one of them.

Bush seeks at least $25,000 in damages, though he doesn’t put a price tag on the injury.

Buffalo viewed the 22-year-old Carrier as a player with speed and promise. The Golden Knights viewed the Sabres’ expansion offerings as slim pickings and thought the 2013 second-rounder was an easy choice. Sure, Buffalo could use a young, ascending player such as Carrier, but GM Jason Botterill prioritized saving goaltending prospect Linus Ullmark. Carrier added spark and a level of grit to Vegas’ bottom six in limited action (30 regular-season games) but has missed time these playoffs with injury.

The Knights took the unusual step of drafting Engelland despite the fact that he was a pending unrestricted free agent. He had been a serviceable depth defenseman for the Penguins and Flames, but he set career bests in points (23), average ice time (20:17) and fewest penalty minutes (24) this season. And he was so much more than that: The 36-year-old Vegas resident served as a city ambassador for his teammates, and his emotional speech on opening night after the shooting massacre on the Strip helped immediately bond the team with the city.

TCU cracks Top 25 for first time since 2010; UConn remains No. 1

TCU is back in the AP Top 25 for the first time in more than seven years.

Georgia also entered the poll this week at No. 21. The team was last ranked on Feb. 9, 2015. Iowa and Rutgers fell out of the poll.

It wouldn’t be just any opportunity that could coax me back to the pit box, Eury said. Working with Danica and GoDaddy again at Daytona is going to be fun — when you can do what you love and be in your element … well, I can tell you, it doesn’t get any better.

Danica and I have shared success before in Daytona, and she has a lot more experience under her belt now, so I look forward to seeing what we can achieve during Speedweeks.

The team will receive technological support from Richard Childress Racing and will use ECR engines.

Bell-Haynes entered needing 11 points to reach 1,400 points for his UVM career. He scored 13 points in the first half to become the 11th Catamount to surpass the plateau. He also moved to 10th in scoring, far behind leader Eddie Benton (1992-96) at 2,474 points.

Payton Henson added 18 points and Everett Duncan 12 for the Catamounts.

Vermont scored the first nine points of the game, extended it to 18-3 with five points from Henson and Bell-Haynes hit a 3-pointer from the corner to make it 21-7 after 10 minutes.

J.R. Lynch scored 10 points for Hartford (11-10, 4-3), which fell to 2-31 against Vermont since 2003.

Following up with another dramatic role, Riggle will co-star Bella Thorne and Patrick Schwarzenegger in Open Road Films’ Midnight Sun, opening March 23, and he is currently in production on Universal’s upcoming comedy, Night School, opposite Kevin Hart and Tiffany Haddish, which is set to release Sept. 28.

NFL players vote Calais Campbell Sporting News Defensive Player of the Year for 2017

Calais Campbell was one of the NFL’s best-kept defensive secrets when he towered over the desert in Arizona. It took him putting the big sacks in Sacksonville to break through as the league’s unquestioned best defensive player.

Campbell, 31, is Sporting News’ Defensive Player of the Year for 2017, an award voted on by his peers. A two-time Pro Bowler with the Cardinals, Campbell was named first-team All-Pro for the first time in his first season with the Jaguars.

Campbell was able to emerge from that great group because of his versatility and veteran leadership for a young team that turned around on and off the field because of his presence.

Campbell was a steal of a second-round pick for the Cardinals for many seasons. Ten years later, everyone now knows and respects him as Defensive Player of the Year.

Saint Louis led by nine points, 53-44, on a pair of Davell Roby free throws with 7:16 remaining. Jenkins answered with two free throws, Tillman scored off a Saint Louis turnover and Vann scored back-to-back layups as VCU cut the gap to 55-52 with just over five minutes left.

Javon Bess put the Billikens up 61-58 with 15 seconds to go when Jenkins took a pass on the other end, dribbled left, beat his defender and launched the tying 3-pointer.

Bess and D.J. Foreman scored 20 points each for Saint Louis (10-11, 3-5) and Jordan Goodwin added 15 with 10 rebounds before fouling out with five seconds left in the game.

Ivey helps Akron hold off Ohio 71-68

Jimond Ivey scored 11 of his 17 points in the final six minutes and Akron held off Ohio 71-68 on Tuesday night.

Ivey added six rebounds and four assists on an emotional night for the Zips, who ditched the traditional white home jerseys and wore purple in honor of pancreatic cancer awareness. The players all sported Peters on the backs of their jerseys in honor of Dan Peters, the Zips’ director of basketball operations who succumbed to the disease in 2014.

So I turn around, and we’re looking at each other, said Barea, who had a smile on his face when the on-court discussion with Wall started. I think he’s going to say — what I would do? — ‘My bad’ or something. But he didn’t say that. He was like — I’m not going to say the bad word — ‘What are you gonna do?’ I was like, ‘What?’ So you know, I had to say some stuff back, and he never changed his mind.

He’s trying to be a tough guy when he’s not.

Buffalo led 39-17 at halftime after holding Eastern Michigan to 6-of-26 shooting (23.1 percent). The Bulls made six 3-pointers in the half and attempted 15 free throws.

Paul Jackson scored 20 points — all in the second half — for Eastern Michigan (11-9, 2-5), which hasn’t won at Alumni Arena since Feb. 4, 2004. Tim Bond had 13 points and seven boards. The Eagles finished at 38.5 percent.

Evans scored 22 of his 26 points after halftime Tuesday night, and Texas Tech rallied from a 15-point deficit to beat Oklahoma State 75-70 and avoid a third straight loss.

Evans hit a 3-pointer with 3:52 left that put the Red Raiders ahead to stay. That came only 40 seconds after his rebound and assist to Jarrett Culver, whose breakaway dunk gave Texas Tech (16-4, 5-3 Big 12) its first lead since the first half, and before a jumper by Lindy Waters put the Cowboys ahead one last time.

Bates-Diop scores 20 as No. 13 Buckeyes slip past Nebraska

Playing its fourth game in eight days, No. 13 Ohio State seemed vulnerable Monday night. Facing a surprising Nebraska team that upset Michigan last week, the Buckeyes were at risk of letting one slip away.

But that didn’t happen. Keita Bates-Diop, the Big Ten’s top scorer, had 14 of his 20 points in the second half and the surging Buckeyes ground out a 64-59 win over the Cornhuskers for their ninth straight conference victory.

Ohio State: The Buckeyes may have been fatigued after a rugged traveling schedule and three straight games on the road. But they found a rhythm in the second half and locked down another critical Big Ten win over a scrappy team.

Palmer was 11 for 18, and 5 for 11 from beyond the 3-point arc. His 34 points led all scorers, and none of his teammates contributed more than five points.

I’m no rocket scientist, but I’ll tell you what — when James is going like that we just keep getting him the ball and get out of his way, Miles said. James is a special player, and I’m glad he’s with us. He’s one of those guys who’s getting a little better every night out.

Bridges scored 31 points, Jaren Jackson Jr. had 21 points and 11 rebounds and the Spartans beat Illinois 87-74 on Monday night despite committing 25 turnovers.

It was the most giveaways for Michigan State (18-3, 6-2 Big Ten) since November of 2005 against Arizona, when they had 27 in an overtime win. This was the Spartans’ third straight game with 20 or more turnovers, and they’ve won each game by double digits.

It was a bit ridiculous what we did out there tonight, Izzo said.

Illinois coach Brad Underwood, whose team has lost six in a row — all Big Ten games — managed to sound optimistic after his team’s effort against an elite team.

I liked the team I coached out there tonight, he said. Losing is unacceptable, but we’re young and everything is a growing process for us. Baby steps. Continuing to learn. Tonight, I think we ran our best offense of the year, against a team that is ranked first or second in the nation in just about every defensive category.

German helps Northern Illinois rout Bowling Green 93-62

Eugene German didn’t miss a shot and finished with 19 points as Northern Illinois routed Bowling Green 93-62 on Tuesday night.

I’m going to prove I belong. There’s a lot of skepticism about the type of the player I am and where I come from at Wyoming, obviously, Allen said. I’m getting out here with the best of the best to show I can make all the throws, and understand offenses in the NFL.

Bradley pushed its home-court record to 11-0 this season.

Don’t think this fact is lost on ESPN in the era of cord-cutting, subscriber losses and astronomical rights fees. Burke Magnus, the network’s executive vice president of programming and scheduling, admitted as much on Wednesday, one day before the NFL’s 2017 regular season schedule was released.

We have high expectations because we’ve been as engaged with the league as we ever have been in terms of what the results are going to be, Magnus said at the 2017 CAA World Congress of Sports, per Sports Business Daily. We’ve done everything we can possibly do to communicate with the league and guide them in terms of our preferences, and now we’ll see.

Gronkowski’s status for the Feb. 4 game against the Eagles will be a key storyline.

He had a team-high 69 receptions for 1,084 yards and eight touchdowns in the regular season and typically is quarterback Tom Brady’s go-to target and a matchup nightmare for defenses.

Deng Adel’s work day looked complete as he headed to the bench with a statistical double-double that put Louisville comfortably ahead of Boston College ??? or so it seemed before things began unraveling in less than two minutes.

The junior forward ended up going back in to deliver the first of the Cardinals’ 10 free throws on 12 attempts in the final minute that sealed Sunday’s tense 77-69 victory over the Eagles.

Could a lingering injury impact Victor Oladipo’s chances at snagging an All-Star spot?

Damian Lillard has missed Portland’s last five games with a strained hamstring, but the Blazers have gotten huge shots from unexpected places in his absence. They’re 3-2, with each of their wins decided by one or two possessions. In the final five minutes with the score within five points, Al-Farouq Aminu, Maurice Harkless and Evan Turner are a combined 5-for-5 from deep. — Vincent Johnson

After Rick Carlisle’s rather bellicose comments on LaVar Ball, Steve Kerr came with a thoughtful sermon on ESPN’s priorities, which included shouting out two laid-off ESPN journalists. Meanwhile, I argue that the Lakers are doing everyone a favor by essentially ignoring the guy.

Last bit on this guy, hopefully for a few weeks. I have a Twitter list made up solely of major NBA reporters and columnists from ESPN and other outlets. I check it every morning. With a brief break to laud Alabama’s freshman quarterback, that entire timeline was devoted to LaVar Ball on Monday, despite near unanimous agreement among those reporters with Kerr’s sentiment that reporters are spending too much time talking about Ball.

If you want to stop talking about LaVar Ball…maybe try stop talking about LaVar Ball. (Now I’m going to stop talking about LaVar Ball for a little while. Probably. Maybe.)

So that’s his mindset. He understands it. He doesn’t get caught up in the hype. He’s not going to be eaten by the monster of Alabama. Because he knows at the end of the day, the accolades and all of those things can leave quickly.

As the top-rated dual-threat QB prospect in Texas, Hurts could have easily stayed in Big 12 country and run the same Air Raid system he grew up in. It suited him well, having amassed 51 touchdowns in 11 games as a high school senior.

But Hurts wanted a new challenge. Although he initially wondered whether he was good enough — Saban and all those championships felt like a myth, he said — the phone eventually rang.

Nick Saban just offered me a scholarship? he said. It was like, dang. But then you put your two feet in it and you’re like, ‘Wow, they’re normal.’

Hurts enrolled early in December of 2015 as the Tide were preparing to face Clemson in the national championship game, and his first assignment was to mimic Deshaun Watson for the scout team.
