The Rockies blew leads of 5-2 and 7-5 and were down 8-7 before scoring twice off closer Sam Dyson (2-2) to avoid a series sweep.

Chris Iannetta hit a leadoff single in the ninth and was replaced by pinch-runner Pat Valaika. After pinch-hitter Tom Murphy popped out, LeMahieu sent a full-count pitch from Dyson into the left-field stands.

Two nights earlier, Dyson got LeMahieu to ground into a game-ending double play with the tying run on base.

The jump shot needs work, though. His ball pickup on his pull-up jumper is funky, and the lack of consistency could ultimately make him easier to defend without improvement.

Norvell’s breakout performance came against Ohio State in the NCAA Tournament. He finished with 28 points, 12 rebounds and four assists while shooting 6-of-11 from 3-point range.

As a freshman, the 20-year-old knocked down 37.0 percent of his triples, taking over eight per 40 minutes. He projects best as a two guard who can space the floor and attack closeouts off the bounce.

If this one does not happen, then every Mock Draft on the entire internet is in trouble.

The Kings’ relative lack of interest in Luka Doncic could be a smokescreen, but to what end? Just to mess with the rest of the league? Doncic’s camp believes the Kings are going to pass, so I’ll go with that.

We’ve been telling you since the Combine that the Grizzlies would consider trading this pick. They could get something done Thursday. If not, Carter is among the few who came to work out for the team.

The Mavs will have options here. Bamba is probably the favorite, but it would be a surprise to have Jaren Jackson Jr. available. There’s still an inkling that they like Michael Porter Jr. as well.

The President has created a broad anthem standard that goes well beyond the playing field

The President has spoken (again) about the national anthem. And now that he has gotten his wish to get that son of a bitch off the field (a line borrowed from an FDR fireside chat, possibly) who declines to stand for the anthem, the President has offered a broad proclamation regarding his expectations.

It’s sufficiently broad to apply not only to the players and everyone else at field level, but to everyone else in the stadium.

I don’t think people should be staying in the locker rooms, the President said on FOX News Channel. You have to stand proudly for the national anthem, or you shouldn’t be playing, you shouldn’t be there. Maybe you shouldn’t be in the country. You have to stand proudly for the national anthem.

Above all else, fans should do nothing during the playing of the anthem to in any way disrespect the song, including screaming Ooooooooh! at the outset of the oh say does that star-spangled banner yet wave! or, in Kansas City, replacing the the final words of the song with and the home of the Chiefs.

Anyone who doesn’t comply with those standards isn’t truly standing proudly for the national anthem. And we now know you have to stand proudly for the anthem or you shouldn’t be there.

Maybe you shouldn’t be in the country.

McDermott said at this point, there was not a concern that the problem would threaten his season.

Jones, their second-rounder last year, was involved in a bizarre incident which saw him arrested for vandalism while naked and bleeding, after a fight with his brother. Charges were eventually dropped and Jones expressed his gratitude to everyone who supported him.

He caught 27 passes as a rookie, and the Bills could clearly use more from him this season after going all-in to land quarterback Josh Allen in the draft.

That was actually Sid Dreyer, our assistant athletic trainer, kind of took the bull by the horns there, Miller said in December. The Level 1 trauma center that I was at was actually like four or five minutes from the stadium. By the time we make the trip to the other, they diagnose me, I would’ve had to go back to the Level 1 trauma that we already went to.

So, Sid’s my hero. He saved my leg.

Stanley Cup Final opens with controversial reversal of P.K. Subban goal

In giving his annual state of the NHL address hours before Monday’s Stanley Cup Final opener, commissioner Gary Bettman devoted a sizable portion defending the effectiveness of the league’s controversial coach’s challenge system, which has been under constant scrutiny since its implementation two seasons ago.

It was fitting then that a coach’s challenge led to the reversal of the series’ first goal early in Game 1, scored by one the NHL’s biggest stars.

A pinpoint shot from the blue line by Predators defenseman P.K. Subban beat Penguins goalie Matt Murray 7:13 into the first period. On the surface, it appeared Nashville was off to an early lead. Pittsburgh coach Mike Sullivan felt otherwise and challenged whether Filip Forsberg was offside as the Predators gained the attacking zone.

Teams are curious to see if Buffalo makes the biggest pitch for Kevin Shattenkirk, Friedman wrote Tuesday.

But Botterill’s approach to free agency is unknown.

In Pittsburgh, where Botterill cut his teeth, drafting and developing talent in-house or executing smart, timely trades was key to the Penguinsr Stanley Cup runs. He expressed little interest in a quick fix while outlining his offseason plans last week, and a new contract for Jack Eichel remains priority No. 1, especially in the wake of Connor McDavid’s reported megadeal.

No doubt Botterill will have the cap space and financial backing to be a major player for Shattenkirk, should he so choose.

Buffalo’s acquisition of Marco Scandella Friday coupled with Botterill’s Hockey Jerseys Cheap insistence Giants Cheap Jerseys he’ll avoid the big bang means Sabres fan can probably forget about Shattenkirk.
