WASHINGTON — The Miami Heat opted for rest for LeBron James and Chris Bosh over the pursuit of the Eastern Conference’s top seed, and the Washington Wizards capitalized in a 114-93 breeze of a game Monday night that clinched the No. 1 seed for the Indiana Pacers.
MILWAUKEE — The Milwaukee Brewers’ nine-game winning streak was snapped Monday night when Lance Lynn struck out 11 in seven innings and Jon Jay hit a three-run homer for the St. Louis Cardinals in a 4-0 victory.
INDIANAPOLIS — David West scored 21 points and Lance Stephenson had his league-best fifth triple-double of the season, leading Indiana past Oklahoma City 102-97 Sunday — putting the Pacers one win away from clinching the Eastern Conference’s top seed.
AUGUSTA, Ga. — One of golf’s most exciting players squeezed most of the drama out of the Masters on Sunday. That’s just fine with Bubba Watson.
LOS ANGELES — San Francisco 49ers linebacker Aldon Smith was arrested at Los Angeles International Airport on Sunday after he allegedly became argumentative with a screening agent and made comments suggesting he had a bomb, police said.
LONDON — The last of the elite runners to arrive in London but the first over the line, Wilson Kipsang’s week of travel chaos had no impact on his marathon running. The world record-holder saw off a strong field to capture his second London title by breaking the course record on Sunday.
LAS VEGAS — Manny Pacquiao won a unanimous decision in his rematch with Timothy Bradley on Saturday night, avenging his 2012 loss and claiming the WBO welterweight title.
DARLINGTON, S.C. — Kevin Harvick used one of the few weekend missteps to pull out his first Darlington victory.
LOS ANGELES — Blake Griffin scored 27 points, DeAndre Jordan added 21, and the Los Angeles Clippers beat the Sacramento Kings 117-101 on Saturday to earn their franchise record-tying 56th victory of the regular season.
A look at where things stand in the NBA playoff picture, with four days remaining in the regular season:
AUGUSTA, Ga. — Until Dos Equis released its wildly popular “Most Interesting Man in the World” commercial series, Miguel Angel Jimenez was known as “The Mechanic.”
PHILADELPHIA — Union College won its first NCAA hockey title Saturday night, scoring three times in a 1:54 span in the first period in a 7-4 victory over Minnesota on Saturday night.
AUGUSTA, Ga. — Both golfers who will be in the final pairing of a suddenly scintillating Masters have been through all of this Augusta on Sunday excitement before. Bubba Watson did it in 2012, when he won the green jacket in a playoff. And Jordan Spieth did it often in his imagination while practicing putts as a little kid — which was not all that long ago.
None of those wild shots off the straw or from behind a tree.
