Cavaliers beat the Warriors, 112 to 97.
The morning quote:
“We’re just happy we got another day. That’s all we can ask for.”
—LeBron James after his team, down 3 to 1 in the NBA championship series, beat Golden State in Oakland last night to force a game six. He and teammate Kyrie Irving each scored 41 points in the victory. The Warriors were without suspended star Draymond Green.
A Red Sox minor leaguer was suspended for 25 games yesterday.
His name is Jhon Nunez and he was caught using performing-enhancing drugs. He plays at Class A Greenville where he’s hitting .316. The Sox should really have Big Papi sit him down and teach him how not to get caught…up in that sort of thing.
Brace yourselves for a Hanley Ramirez report.
Here are his June numbers: 5 hits in 37 at bats for a .135 average, with 2 doubles, 3 RBI, and 3 runs. He hasn’t hit a homer since May 10. Depressing.
Gronk returned to practice yesterday.
And so the planet began spinning properly on its axis again. Running back Dion Lewis also returned for the first time since undergoing surgery on his left ACL in November.
Here’s a strange one for you:
32-year-old former Celtic point guard Nate Robinson tried out Monday at defensive back for the Seattle Seahawks—the position he played at the University of Washington a decade ago. He said in April that the Patriots once called him about working out for their scouts.
Good news, book lovers!
Remember how Gisele sold all 1,000 copies of her self-titled, $700 coffee table book before it hit store shelves last fall? Well, she’ll soon be re-issuing it, according to the Guardian. Looks like we know what the WESR Book Club’s selection for July will be.
Well that seems a bit generous.
Las Vegas has given the Bruins 25-to-1 odds to win the Stanley Cup next year. That puts them behind only 15 other NHL teams.
