While the Nuggets started 0-for-9 from 3-point range, with Michael Porter Jr. going 0-for-6 in the first half, Phoenix built a 10-point halftime lead with Dario Saric providing an eight-point spark off the bench.Denver Nuggets
The Atlanta Hawks jumped from 20-47 in 2019-20 — 2.5 games worse than the Bulls — to 41-31 this season by surrounding Young with shooting and depth. Danilo Gallinari, Bogdan Bogdanović and even Tony Snell in a smaller role keep driving lanes open and defenses honest. Holdover Kevin Huerter does the same. Clint Capela, Solomon Hill and John Collins add toughness and defense.Washington Wizards
Walker is fine at this point of his career, but he was not reliable during the Celtics’ latest playoff run. Brown and Tatum need to be able to lean on their point guard to be able to get them the ball, as well as having a primary ball-handler to get buckets in crunch time. One team that has a redundancy in the backcourt is the Cleveland Cavaliers. Maybe they can trade for Collin Sexton?
The Nets will be without James Harden, who left with an injury in the first minute of Game 1. But the Nets won without him, are the clear NBA title favorites and they're getting most of the bets. It's curious to see the line moving Milwaukee's way.

"I can already tell that I appreciate what I do on a daily basis more than I ever have in my life," Sale said. "If it's coming here and doing a shoulder program -- which I don't know if I ever heard of a pitcher who liked doing a shoulder program -- but just appreciating the fact that I get to do it, just being able to throw, that I've been able to throw the last few months and it's not going to be some big ceremonial game."Baltimore Orioles Face Coverings

“I think it’s very beneficial,” he said of having a normal offseason this year. “I think last year with the Zoom – the Zoom helped – but I think for me, I would rather do it. That’s the kind of learner I am. So I think now being here is kind of beneficial, being on the field and actually going through the plays and stuff like that. I think it’s helping me out more. I’m glad that the rookies get to experience this, as well. They can come in and learn things a lot quicker and do it themselves, so I think it’s very beneficial.”NFL Tampa Bay Buccaneers Team Face Coverings
“I thought the second unit was struggling,” Rivers said. “We had zero points at halftime from our second unit. I talked to Shake today. I said, ‘This is a long run, man, if we do this right, and everyone’s going to get a shot. And stay ready.’ … Shake came back last night, played 1-on-1 at 10 o’clock at night. He shot extra. He prepared himself and he believed that he could get another shot, and he got it and he gave us a huge lift. So I’m very happy for him.”
In the second half, it looked as if he stepped on Hawks forward John Collins’ foot and he winced a bit. He was clearly in some type of pain and it appeared to be his left side, but he was still able to play through it and total 27 points, nine rebounds, and eight assists in the win.

There’s certainly an argument to be made that putting your best defender on the other team’s best perimeter scorer isn’t always best practice. Exerting more energy on defense can take a toll on the offense of a player like George or Leonard. But sometimes there’s also more net value to be gained by shutting down a secondary creator and scorer.

As I mentioned in mock 1.0, the belief in the community right now is the No. 1 pick is down to three names: Jordan Lawlar, Henry Davis, and Marcelo Mayer. We are still a month out, but there has been some recent buzz on Mayer potentially being the favorite to go first. Mayer still needs to fill out physically, but he is the best pure hitter in the prep class and he should have no issue sticking at shortstop. MLB Pipeline has compared him to a young Corey Seager.Detroit Tigers Face Coverings

Garbers took a step back last season, hurt by the post-COVID adjustment to new coordinator Bill Musgrove’s offense. He comes into 2021 with 23 starts (25 games) of experience, has shown toughness and fits a pro-style offense well. Can he repeat his 2019 performance (especially in wins over Stanford, UCLA and Illinois) this fall?
He was gifted another one of those grievances on Sunday when All-Pro wide receiver Julio Jones was traded to the Tennessee Titans for at least a second-round pick.

Wentz's fall from grace on the field in 2020 was one of the more... well, "remarkable" isn't the right word, but it's been a long time since we've seen a starting NFL quarterback fall off a cliff from one season to the next as Wentz did last season. There were all kinds of reasons for this -- an injury-plagued offensive line and receiver corps among the most prominent -- and Wentz didn't help with his delayed reads and truly mindblowing (in a bad way) throws at times. Shorter throws from short drops are supposed to be easier concepts to get a quarterback into rhythm, but it wasn't the case for Wentz, who was by far the NFL's least efficient passer on throws with dropbacks of zero or one step. On such throws (157 dropbacks), Wentz completed 90 of 145 passes for 784 yards, 422 air yards, three touchdowns, five interceptions, and a passer rating of 68.9. Denver's Drew Lock was the second-least efficient on such throws, and he wound up with a passer rating of 75.6. Colts head coach Frank Reich is right to believe that he can turn Wentz around to a degree based on his history with the quarterback, but there is a LOT of work to do here.

Jokic took some of the blame, saying he should have been more aggressive during the second half. The MVP candidate shot 10 of 23 from the field.
Although James' choice of No. 23 was influenced by Jordan, he later said that No. 6 was inspired by NBA greats Bill Russell and Julius "Dr. J" Erving, who wore the number. James has continued to wear No. 6 since leaving the Heat in 2014 -- on his practice uniform while playing for the Cleveland Cavaliers and in L.A. He said the dual number decision was a nod to Deion Sanders, who wore his collegiate No. 2 on his practice jersey but played in No. 21 for most of his NFL career.Minnesota Timberwolves

“We’ve always tried to look closely at the strengths of our players, what they do well and we’ll build a little bit around that player accordingly,” Payton said in a press conference. “And that’s something that we did when Drew first arrived here, and we would do with either these two players. . . . there’s certain things that you might do, specific to one or the other. And yet, there’s still an overall philosophical approach that these guys will learn to play offense. But yeah, it’s not a whole different game plan for each one of them. There are certain things that we would do maybe differently with each one, but we’ll work that out.”NFL Tampa Bay Buccaneers Team Face Coverings
Was Peterson more effective for the 2020 Lions than Johnson or Huntley would have been? For sure; Peterson proved he still had some gas in the old tank.

Nothing seems to personify this more than the reveal of the Nike City Connect uniforms, of which the White Sox are the clearcut winners.

After the win, Kapler said Longoria was in pain and was still being examined by the team's medical staff in the training room, and that he thought the third baseman hurt his left shoulder or collarbone.
Jacob deGrom says he felt some flexor tightness throughout the week prior to his start Friday night but it never worsened so he felt comfortable making his scheduled start. He was removed after 6 innings with 'right flexor tendonitis' but says his concern level is not high. DeGrom: 'I'm not too concerned about it because it didn't get much worse as the game went on'. Prior to exiting, deGrom was his usual un-hittable self, striking out 10 and allowing just a Will Myers single.
