(AP Photo/Stacy Bengs)MINNEAPOLIS — Chelsea Gray got a sliver of daylight and let a 14-foot jumper fly — Game 1 of the WNBA Finals and what would have been a dubious piece of history for the Los Angeles Sparks hanging in the balance.When it splashed through there may have been a few sighs of relief sprinkled in among those celebratory high fives.ADVERTISEMENT Gray’s pull-up jumper with 2 seconds delivered an 85-84 victory on Sunday over the Minnesota Lynx in the kind of edge-of-your-seat finish that no one saw coming when the Sparks led 28-2 in the first quarter.“I think all athletes dream of that moment,” Gray said. “I think you dream of hitting that shot. … I’m glad it went in.”FEATURED STORIESSPORTSWATCH: Drones light up sky in final leg of SEA Games torch runSPORTSSEA Games: Philippines picks up 1st win in men’s water poloSPORTSMalditas save PH from shutoutGray scored a career-high 27 points and Candace Parker added 15 points and 12 rebounds for the Sparks, who joined their NFL brethren by sitting out the national anthem. The Sparks led 28-2 in the first quarter and 78-66 with five minutes to play, but gave it all back after a charge from the Lynx.Maya Moore scored 27 points and Sylvia Fowles had 22 points and 13 rebounds for the Lynx, who roared back from that 26-point hole to take an 84-83 lead with 6.5 seconds to play. A victory would have been the largest playoff comeback in WNBA history, but Minnesota could not get one last stop.

This is the Minnesota Lynx,” Ogwumike said. “They are going to punch back and we have to be able to respond to that better.”Moore’s dash to the bucket put the Lynx in front with 6.5 seconds to play, but that was plenty of time for Gray. She used an escape dribble to create a little daylight, and her high-arching jumper splashed through.Odyssey Sims scored 16 points and Ogwumike had 11 points and six rebounds for Los Angeles.Augustus finished with 19 points, eight rebounds and four assists for Minnesota.“We gave ourselves a chance to win the game, but there’s no question that the championship isn’t going to be won with that kind of stretch that we allowed in that first quarter,” Moore said.SPARKS’ STATEMENTOgwumike said the Sparks were inspired to sit out the anthem by the Pittsburgh Steelers and coach Mike Tomlin, who did the same in Chicago on Sunday. The Sparks said they were not disrespecting the country or the flag, but standing in solidarity with their NFL counterparts.“Some people may want to kneel, some people may not want to,” she said. “We want to show everyone that a team does as a team does. We wanted to stand in solidarity together and stand by our mission and that’s unity and togetherness. We felt that we wanted to also show our respect for other people who understand how important it is for us to be together at this time.”UP NEXTGame 2 is on Tuesday night in Minneapolis. View comments “I know everyone is going to talk about what a great comeback it was, but that’s not the world we live in,” Lynx coach Cheryl Reeve said. “That means absolutely nothing to us.”The Sparks beat the Lynx in a five-game thriller last season, and Game 1 had plenty of fireworks even before the opening tip.With the Lynx locking arms in solidarity, the Sparks quickly left the Williams Arena court just before “The Star Spangled Banner” began to play, joining hundreds of NFL players in opposition to President Donald Trump’s call for NFL owners to fire players who do not stand for the national anthem. As soon as the song was over, they returned to a chorus of boos and then made another emphatic statement once the game started.They led 12-0 when Gray knocked down a 3-pointer and pushed the lead to 28-2 later in the first quarter, a staggering level of dominance against a star-studded Lynx team playing in the finals for the sixth time in seven seasons. The Lynx did not grab a rebound in the entire first quarter and it took them more than eight minutes to get Fowles, the league MVP, her first shot.The Lynx started chipping away, trimming the deficit to 10 points at halftime and getting Parker, Nneka Ogwumike and Alana Beard into foul trouble. Moore’s defense in the fourth jumpstarted a 12-0 burst that she capped with a steal and layup to tie the game at 78 and Seimone Augustus hit a 3 for an 82-81 lead with 50 seconds to go.ADVERTISEMENT LOOK: Loisa Andalio, Ronnie Alonte unwind in Amanpulo for 3rd anniversary Nonong Araneta re-elected as PFF president Dwyane Wade, Bulls agree on buyout Read Next MOST READ LATEST STORIES E.T. returns to earth, reunites with grown-up Elliott in new ad last_img read more

Dodgers’ title drought reaches 30 years with Series loss

first_imgLos Angeles Dodgers right fielder Yasiel Puig watches as the Houston Astros celebrate their win in Game 7 of baseball’s World Series. The Astros won 5-1 to win the series 4-3. APLOS ANGELES — Even Clayton Kershaw couldn’t save the Dodgers in Game 7 of the World Series.The three-time NL Cy Young Award winner pitched four scoreless innings of relief when starter Yu Darvish fell into a five-run hole after 1 2/3 innings Wednesday (Thursday Manila time).But the Dodgers’ offense never put it together.

That allowed the crowd of 54,124, stunned into silence early, a rare moment to cheer.But the Dodgers stranded two more runners and trailed 5-1.Their big bats were silenced, too. Chris Taylor, Corey Seager, Justin Turner, Cody Bellinger, Yasiel Puig and Joc Pederson were a combined 4 for 22. Bellinger whiffed three times, and his 17 strikeouts were a Series record. He also broke Yankees star Aaron Judge’s freshly set mark with 29 strikeouts this postseason.“This is just a great group of guys,” Kershaw said. “Without getting too emotional, just trying to embrace each other. We all feel the same hurt.”The Dodgers didn’t manage a baserunner over the last three innings, keeping their title drought intact.“I hope we can get to this point again,” Kershaw said, “but it definitely wasn’t easy to get here.” QC cops nab robbery gang leader, cohort It was a clunker of an ending for baseball’s best team during the regular season.“Like I told the guys, when you put everything, every ounce of your being into something and you come up short, it hurts,” manager Dave Roberts said, “and it’s supposed to hurt.”FEATURED STORIESSPORTSWATCH: Drones light up sky in final leg of SEA Games torch runSPORTSSEA Games: Philippines picks up 1st win in men’s water poloSPORTSMalditas save PH from shutoutThe Dodgers won 104 games, boasted an NL-leading six All-Stars and won the NL West for the fifth consecutive year.

Springer blasted a two-run homer — his record-tying fifth of the Series — and Houston extended its lead to 5-0.Brandon Morrow got the last out of the inning before Kershaw came on in the third. The left-handed ace allowed two hits, struck out four and walked two, leaving fans to question why Roberts didn’t start Kershaw on short rest in the first place. Or at least bring in Kershaw to face Springer in the second.“There’s always going to be second-guessing,” Roberts said. “We felt good with Yu starting the game.”Darvish only managed five outs in losing Game 3 at Houston. He’s the second pitcher in World Series history with less than two innings pitched in two starts.“I let my teammates down,” he said through a translator.Darvish took the loss, giving up five runs — four earned — and three hits. He didn’t record a strikeout and walked one.“I know he wanted the baseball. I know he was prepared. I just can’t explain the results,” Roberts said. “I understand it’s Game 7, but I just felt his stuff was good.”Acquired at the July trade deadline, Darvish was best known in the Series for being the target of a racist gesture by Astros first baseman Yuli Gurriel during Game 3. On Wednesday, Gurriel tipped his helmet to Darvish before stepping in for his first at-bat of the game.“I just tried not to hit him,” Darvish said. “What happened didn’t affect me at all.”Kenley Jansen appeared earlier than usual, too. The closer, who tied for the NL lead with 41 saves, trotted out in the seventh to face the top of the Astros’ order. He induced a flyout from Springer, struck out Alex Bregman and walked Jose Altuve, who stole second before Carlos Correa popped out to shortstop. Don’t miss out on the latest news and information.
