Stephen Curry has completed his fourth of 12 3-point attempts, giving him 28 points. But, more importantly, he now passes Kobe Bryant for most 3-pointers in the NBA playoffs.

It appears Manu Ginobili has left the court for the last time at least for this season. The AT&T Center is giving him a standing ovation. Coach Gregg Popovich asked whether Ginobili wanted to go out on the court one last time with less than two minutes remaning. He declined.

The Cavaliers made their point to get it back to 3-1 again. Only this isn’t 3-1. Cleveland was trailing 3-0. A comeback from that would be bigger than that time the Boston Red Sox came back from the same deficit to beat the New York Yankees in the 2004 ALCS. That started with a Kevin Millar walk, a Dave Roberts steal and a game-tying single by Bill Mueller in the ninth inning off Mariano Rivera. The rest is history.

We’re a long way until these NBA Finals get there. If the Cavs win the next one, then Irving will have about a billion memes to choose from.

The reality is Golden State can eliminate all of that by closing out the series Monday. The Warriors won the first two games there by an average of 20.5 points, and now has the motivation of responding to a blowout for the first time in a while. They did that after Game 3 in 2016 to take that last 3-1 lead.

Over the next three days, that comparison will continue to made. Overreactions to Green’s technical foul and postgame comments are coming. Midges, Kardashians, Wade’s getup. Locker-room chatter, before or after. It doesn’t matter.

Having the potential to get drafted in the NBA lottery has its benefits. Former Duke guard Luke Kennard reaped those benefits draft night.

The 6-foot-6 guard was ESPN Chad Ford’s No. 15 rated player coming into the draft, but he was the No. 1 player in the heart of one Savannah Chrisley, star of the reality show “Chrisley Knows Best,” a show that you really probably don’t care that much about.

But what you probably do care about is the fact that Chrisley used to date Memphis Grizzlies forward Chandler Parsons. The operative phrase here is ‘used to.’

Now it’s Griffin’s turn to be on the receiving end of recruiting pitches. He opted out of his contract on Friday to become a free agent, according to The Vertical’s Adrian Wojnarowski.

Griffin had a player option worth more than $21 million with the Clippers next season, according to Hoops Hype, but he’ll be able to choose his next team as an unrestricted free agent.

He averaged 21.6 points, 8.1 rebounds and 4.9 assists per game last season after missing more than a month midseason because of a knee injury. His suffered a season-ending Cheap Infant Jerseys toe injury in the first round of the NBA playoffs, which, it turned out, marked the possible end of the Clippers’ core of Griffin, Chris Paul and DeAndre Jordan.

Dallas’ roster this season was full of players who went undrafted, from players with varying degrees of veteran status like Wesley Matthews, J.J. Barea and Seth Curry, to rookies like Ferrell, Finney-Smith and Iowa’s Jarrod Uthoff. The Mavericks also had undrafted players from previous draft classes who made their NBA debuts this season, including Nicolas Brussino (2015), Quinn Cook (’15) and Cheap Ireland Soccer Jerseys Jonathan Gibson (’10).

Cody Bellinger is out there and he’s loving every minute of it!

The 21-year old left fielder for the Los Angeles Dodgers is batting .272 with 22 home runs this season for a team that leads the National League West and is slowly creeping up on the Astros for the best record in the majors.

But what will not show up on the scouting report is probably the most harrowing strike against him. He has no idea who Jerry Seinfeld is.

At least we know he’s not going to get caught eating garbage, or missing his window, or so we hope. And the good thing is he doesn’t get either of those references so they’re just fine to type here.

Watch some Seinfeld Cody, it will do you some good.

It has long been speculated whether LeBron James would ever play with his banana boat pals – Carmelo Anthony, Chris Paul and Dwyane Wade – later in his career. Later could come sooner than expected, as Anthony and Wade are potential buyout candidates with the Knicks and Bulls, respectively, and the Cavaliers could be a leading contender to sign one or both of the players in free agency, according to ESPN.

Anthony’s contract is worth more than $26 million for next season and Wade is scheduled to make $23.8 million in the final year of his contract with the Bulls. As buyout candidates, both players could provide the Cavaliers with a relatively inexpensive way to sign complementary players to put alongside LeBron and Kyrie Irving.

With NBA free agency kicking off July 1, Kyle Lowry reportedly will be targeted by multiple teams, including the 76ers, Timberwolves and, of course, the Raptors.

Lowry has made three consecutive All-Star teams in Toronto, and team president Masai Ujiri seems certain he’ll stay north of the border. Raptors guard DeMar Derozan also appears confident as he told Sports Illustrated he plans to stay out of Lowry’s decision-making process.

“I’d want him on my staff because he’d have the respect of everybody in this league right away,” Lue said. “You know, if I hadn’t defended him in that series, I’d have been out of the league. He made me.”

“AI” made Lue look bad in Game 1 in that series, scoring 48 points. That game included the infamous incident where Iverson crossed up Lue for a basket; after Lue fell to the floor, Iverson theatrically stepped over him.

The Lakers went on to win the series in five games. And Lue would go on to play 11 seasons in the NBA, setting him up for his current job as coach of the powerhouse Cavs. Iverson, who was inducted into the Naismith Memorial Basketball Hall of Fame last year, is now one of the marquee players in the new Big3 basketball league.

“It’s definitely going to help a lot because I’m going to be in a lot better shape than I was last year,” Howard said. “I know the plays this year. I won’t be timid or even thinking. I’ll Cheap Hockey Jerseys For Sale be able to play loosely. I’m focusing on getting in better shape and being in better condition so I Cheap High Quality NFL Jerseys can play even more snaps.”

The Bears, coming off a 3-13 season, will need all the help they can get, especially when their quarterback position is a big question mark.

Bochy made it clear Bumgarner would play normal catch on flat ground. It’s too soon to throw off a mound in a bullpen session, so a timeline for when the Giants might expect the lefthander, who has averaged 15.5 wins over the past six seasons, back in their rotation remains unclear.

San Francisco is 22-30, 11 games back of the first-place Rockies.

Welington Castillo could soon find himself on the disabled list.

The Orioles catcher ended up in the emergency room following Tuesday’s loss to the Yankees after taking a deflected pitch in groin area and could sit out the next few games, the Baltimore Sun reported Wednesday.

Castillo was initially believed to be taking a routine day off for Wednesday’s series finale against New York after making five straight starts, but could miss additional time after being diagnosed with a hematoma in the groin. The team’s medical staff will continue to monitor the injury and determine how much time he’ll need to recover.

Castillo spent a lot of time in the emergency room last night, postgame, with the obvious contusion, whatever you want to call it, that he had last night that everybody knows about, Orioles manager Buck Showalter told reporters.

Kevin Pillar will donate the salary he forfeited for using an anti-gay slur last month to two Toronto-area LGBTQ organizations, the Blue Jays center fielder announced.

Pillar has apologized since he was suspended without pay for two games for yelling the homophobic slur at Braves pitcher Jason Motte during an on-field confrontation during a game May 17.

It’s not lip service, Pillar said (via ESPN.com). It’s easy to come out and make your apologies and hope people forget, but I meant what I said when I said hopefully I’ll be made an example of.

Based on his $555,000 salary, Pillar’s estimated donation would be just less than $7,000. The money will go to PFLAG, an LGBTQ advocacy and support group, and You Can Play, an organization that works to make sports safe and open for athletes regardless of their sexual orientation or gender identity.

Pillar also will go through sensitivity training sessions with PFLAG.

Need to know: Minor missed all of 2015 with a shoulder injury and didn’t see the big leagues in 2016, either ’ he made 10 starts in the minors as he tried to build up strength as a starter ’ but he’s been really good out of the bullpen so far in 2017. He’s pitched 24 2/3 innings over 19 appearances, striking out 25 and allowing just 15 hits and seven walks, with a 1.82 ERA/1.98 FIP. Minor had been a starter during his pre-injury career with the Braves, but moving to the bullpen has been a boost to his fastball; Minor’s averaging 93.9 mph this year after sitting around 9.07 his first five years in the majors. He’d make a great addition to any playoff-bound bullpen.

The Royals have decisions to make.

This isn’t a surprise, of course. They’ve long known about these looming decisions concerning a crop of talented players they’ll try to extend, let walk as free agents or trade away to restock a farm system that ranks in the bottom third in baseball, in terms of talent.

Truth is, if the Royals wanted to truly maximize the trade value of these players, they should have moved some of them last year. But it’s understandable that GM Dayton Moore was hesitant to do so; the Royals made it to Game 7 of the 2014 World Series and won the 2015 World Series, and the pressure was on to make at least one more run with that core group in 2016.

Siri took exception to the play and charged Pinero afterwards, shoving him in the back and appeared to take a few swings. The umpire stepped in between them, but the aggression spread out to both teams and the benches cleared.

During the chaos, West Michigan relief pitcher Eduardo Jimenez could be clearly seen throwing a ball at Dayton reliever Jesse Stallings. This was perhaps the most violent act during the whole situation, but the umpires must have not seen it as Jimenez was not ejected from the game. He could be looking at a suspension in the near future, though.

Well, we’re two months into the 2017 season and surprising names are still all over the leaderboards. Figured we’d take a look at the most surprising category leaders so far this season. All stats are through Tuesday’s games.

Why that’s surprising: In 2016, his first season away from playing his home games with the Rockies in Coors Field, Dickerson’s batting average dropped off a cliff. He was a career .299 hitter for Colorado, but batted just .245 for Tampa Bay last year.

He was still a productive hitter ’ he popped 24 homers and had a .761 OPS in 148 games ’ but there wasn’t much reason to think he’d be in the conversation for best average in the AL. Manager Kevin Cash moved him from the middle/bottom of the lineup to the leadoff spot for 2017, though, and Dickerson has responded well (obviously). He leads the AL in hits (72) and total bases (128), and he’s tied with Yankees slugger Aaron Judge for the league lead in runs scored (39).

Danny Salazar is switching to relief duties.

The Indians have sent the right-hander to the bullpen amid his struggles so far this season, the team announced Sunday.

Indians manager Terry Francona disclosed Salazar will be available as a reliever beginning Wednesday, but could start a game next week during Cleveland’s road trip to face the Royals and Rockies. The 2016 All-Star has struck out 73 batters in 52 1/3 innings, though he’s allowed 55 hits and 28 walks.

Salazar, 27, is 3-5 with a 5.50 ERA in 10 starts. He went 11-6 with a 3.87 ERA last year after missing most of the second half of the season with a sore elbow.

Two years ago, the Astros selected a college hitter with the No. 2 overall pick in the draft, and Alex Bregman has worked out pretty well thus far. Burger has a ton of power, and the idea of this right-handed hitter taking regular aim at the Crawford Boxes in left field has to be exciting for Astros fans.

Pratto had the game-winning RBI in the championship game of the 2011 Little League World Series, which is pretty cool. He’s still a heck of a baseball player, which is more relevant to this discussion. Pratto could wind up several spots higher than this.

One of the perks of going to a baseball game for young fans is receiving a game-used baseball.

Unfortunately for one young fan attending the Pirates-Braves game Wednesday night at SunTrust Park, his baseball was taken away from him ’ by a security guard.

It all happened in the bottom of the eighth inning when the Braves’ Rio Ruiz hit the ball fair down the right field line. A fan reached over the outfield wall to grab the ball, and handed it to a boy.

Fan interference was called and a security guard aggressively motioned to remove the fan from the stadium and then took the ball away from the kid.

Maybe the Angels (if they decide to buy) and maybe the Yankees (if Greg Bird continues to struggle when he returns from the DL) and maybe the Astros. That’s about it. Certainly not enough teams to get into a bidding war for Hosmer. The thing is, if the Royals are going to trade him, they ideally would do it now, while Hosmer’s on a hot streak (.374 over his past 26 games), which doesn’t exactly mix with hoping a trade market develops for him down the road.

Entering Friday, Andrew McCutchen had played in 1,236 games for the Pirates in a nine-year major league career. Not once in that span did McCutchen start a game batting lower than the cleanup spot.

Friday night, though, McCutchen will bat sixth against the Mets ’ just the latest marker of the sudden downward turn the former National League MVP’s career has taken.

McCutchen has spent most of his career batting third, with 878 of his 1,221 big-league starts coming in that slot. He also has started in the leadoff spot 236 times, the No. 2 hole 78 times, and hit cleanup 29 times.

Mets general manager Sandy Alderson said earlier this month he was going to shy away from forecasting timelines for players returning from significant injuries. Apparently that means a gag order as well for Collins.

Injuries have been a massive problem for the Mets this season with Cespedes, Steven Matz (elbow), Seth Lugo (elbow), Asdrubal Cabrera (thumb), David Wright (shoulder), Jeurys Familia (shoulder) and Noah Syndergaard (shoulder) having missed significant time. The latter two players have come with severe criticism as both pitchers were cleared to throw, likely exacerbating their injuries.

We don’t have any reason to think it’s something we’re doing or not doing that causes injuries,’’ Collins told the Daily News. It’s not like we have five guys out with hamstring injuries. If that was the case, I’d say, ’Yeah, we need to take a look at the way we do things.’

But that’s not the case. And other teams have injuries too, by the way. It’s just the way it is in baseball.
