Celtics’ Jayson Tatum wins Skills Challenge

Boston's Jayson Tatum hit a 3-pointer from just beyond midcourt to beat Atlanta's Trae Young in the final round of the skills competition at All-Star Saturday night. Tatum defeated Memphis' Mike Conley in the first round, then topped Denver's Nikola Jokic in the semifinals. Tatum was slightly behind Young going into the 3-pointer, the final shot of the event, and decided he needed to try the long shot to get one in before Young could shoot for the title. Tatum says the trophy will go to his mother's home. He says he was "just out here trying to have fun. I threw one up and it went in." Jokic defeated Orlando's Nikola Vucevic, Young beat Sacramento's De'Aaron Fox and Dalla...Keep on reading: Celtics’ Jayson Tatum wins Skills Challenge.....»»

Before multiculturalism, blackface rampant in US pop culture

At the time Virginia's future political leaders put on blackface in college for fun, Dan Aykroyd wore it too --- in the hit 1983 comedy "Trading Places." Sports announcers of that time often described Boston Celtics player Larry Bird, who is white, as "smart" while describing his black NBA opponents as athletically gifted. Such racial insensitivities ran rampant in popular culture during the 1980s, the era in which Virginia Gov. Ralph Northam and the state's attorney general, Mark Herring, have admitted to wearing blackface as they mimicked pop singer Michael Jackson and rapper Kurtis Blow, respectively. Meanwhile, Chicago elected its first black mayor, Michael Jackson made ...Keep on reading: Before multiculturalism, blackface rampant in US pop culture.....»»

Vucevic leds Magic to 3rd straight win, 124-108 over Hawks

By Paul Newberry, Associated Press ATLANTA (AP) — All-Star Nikola Vucevic scored 19 points and grabbed 12 rebounds, leading the Orlando Magic to a 124-108 victory over the Atlanta Hawks on Sunday night (Monday, PHL time). Despite getting into Atlanta around 2:40 a.m. after a 20-point victory at East-leading Milwaukee the previous night, Orlando looked like the fresher team by far in recording its third straight victory, matching its best run of the season. The Magic began to pull away late in the first half, ripping off an 11-2 run that sent the road team to the locker room with a 63-48 lead — its biggest of the game to that point. D.J. Augustin finished off the spurt, racing the length of the court after a couple of Atlanta free throws to lay one in with 1.2 seconds left. Atlanta's Trae Young hit a desperation shot from just inside the halfcourt line, but he clearly released the ball after the buzzer. The officials gave the replay a quick look before ruling no basket. That pretty much epitomized the night for the Hawks, who lost their third straight game at State Farm Arena. Orlando kept up the onslaught after halftime, scoring 12 of the first 14 points and pushing the lead as high as 26 points in the third quarter. The Magic led 98-74 at the end of the period, sending plenty of fans to the exits. Vucevic, who will be making his first All-Star Game appearance next weekend, led seven Orlando players in double figures. Jonathan Isaac and Evan Fournier each had 17 points. Isaac also had five blocks — three on one Atlanta possession. Alex Len led the Hawks with 16 points, despite picking up four fouls in the first half. TIP-INS Magic: It was the first time in nearly five years that Orlando has won road games on back-to-back days. The last occurred on April 3-4, 2014, when the Magic defeated Minnesota 97-90 and Milwaukee 97-84. ... Eight players connected from beyond the three-point arc, led by Isaac's 3-of-7 performance. ... Augustin had 10 assists to go with 14 points. Hawks: The starting frontcourt had a rough night. John Collins led the way with 15 points on 5-of-12 shooting, while Taurean Prince was held to eight points and Dewayne Dedmon managed only five. ... Atlanta was outrebounded 49-33. UP NEXT Magic: Travel to New Orleans to face the Pelicans on Tuesday night (Wednesday, PHL time).  Hawks: Continue a seven-game homestand Tuesday (Wednesday, PHL time) against LeBron James and the Los Angeles Lakers......»»

Clippers rally from 28 down, beat Celtics

BOSTON --- The "Beat L.A.!" chants turned to boos as the Boston Celtics blew another big lead to another Los Angeles team. One game after the Lakers rallied from 18 points down to win in Boston --- and six days after the Patriots beat the Rams in the Super Bowl --- the retooled Clippers erased a 28-point deficit on Saturday night to beat the Celtics 123-112. "We didn't have it. We didn't have anything. To pull it out was special," said Clippers coach Doc Rivers, who led Boston to the 2008 NBA championship. "We were taking notes already for the next game. That's how far we were out of it." Montrezl Harrell, who scored 21 points, forced two turnovers in the final two minutes, ...Keep on reading: Clippers rally from 28 down, beat Celtics.....»»
