    Getty JaVale McGee and Myles Turner For the Brooklyn Nets, as outmatched as they may have seemed in their series with the Boston Celtics, the outcome was not decided by a large margin. Brooklyn trailed by double digits multiple times in the series, however, they never lost a single game by 10 points and only lost by a combined 18 points in the four games they played. The difference in their 0-4 series loss to the Celtics was that Boston was clearly in a different tier than the Nets were on defense. While Kevin Durant and Kyrie Irving were somewhat able to keep pace with the scoring output of the Celtics’ star duo of Jayson Tatum and Jaylen Brown, Boston was able to get more stops which ultimately decided the outcome of the series.

    Getty Chris Boucher #25 of the Toronto Raptors watches the final minutes of gameplay. The Chicago Bulls could turn to their neighbors to the North in search of rim protection in Toronto Raptors free agent Chris Boucher, one Western Conference executive tells Heavy’s Sean Deveney. That is, of course, if they can pry him loose from the 2019 NBA champs. Boucher’s NBA tenure has not been linear. But the five-year man out of Oregon is an archetypal role player in today’s game. He went undrafted in 2017, signing a one-year deal with the Golden State Warriors as a rookie. Now he heads into a free agency period where the need for his services could outweigh the teams willing to commit the necessary resources to him. Teams’ reluctance to over-commit could work both for the Bulls.Boucher on the BullsBoucher averaged 9.4 points on 57% true shooting with 6.2 rebounds during the regular season. That was a step back from the 13.6 points and 6.7 boards he averaged the season before. He was less efficient from beyond the arc shooting...
    Getty Mo Bamba #5 of the Orlando Magic looks on during a game. The Chicago Bulls could get a re-do on the 2018 NBA Draft and land center Mohamed Bamba this offseason. Not that they are necessarily regretting taking Wendell Carter seventh-overall – he was a key piece in the trade to acquire Nikola Vucevic last season. It was out of their control as Bamba was drafted by the Orlando Magic with the sixth-overall pick — one spot ahead of Carter. But the Bulls were linked to the former Texas Longhorns star during the pre-draft process. Now, one NBA executive tells Heavy’s Sean Deveney that he expects the Bulls to be one of several teams to kick the tires on Bamba this summer.The Magic NumberWith Orlando winning the first overall pick in the NBA Draft Lottery, they have their choice of the top players in this class which all happen to be big men. Paolo Banchero, Chet Holmgren, and Jabari Smith all project as power forwards and, likely, centers in today’s NBA. Carter is under contract through 2026...
    Major League Baseball pitcher Zach Davies' scorned ex-wife has spoken out to blast the sporting star - claiming that he ended their ten-year relationship by 'blocking her number' and cutting off all communication with her, while accusing him of having an affair.  The Arizona State graduate took to Instagram to unleash on her former spouse, claiming that his behavior towards the end of their relationship made her 'world completely fall apart'.  According to Megan, 29, the end of the five-year marriage came when 29-year-old Zach - who pitches for the Arizona Diamondbacks - sent her a text message one morning at 6AM, while she was at home in Arizona and he was out of state.  She claims that he then 'cut off all communication with her', 'blocked her number', and 'ghosted' her, leaving her unable to get in touch with him - even as she planned to file divorce papers - and forcing her to learn of his alleged affair 'through word of mouth'.  Major League Baseball player Zach Davies ex-wife Megan has spoken out to slam him on Instagram, accusing...
    A woman was branded a 'psycho b***h' after she revealed the extensive list of social media rules that she forces her boyfriend to live by - from not following any new women after they start dating to blocking his previous flings. Natalia Reinoso, from Canada, does not want her man to be looking at any other women online. She detailed the intense rules that she makes her potential suitors follow, to ensure that their attention is strictly on her. From not liking any girls' photos on social media to not searching for any female usernames online, Natalia outlined the strict regiment that her partner will have to stick to on TikTok.

    Then-Defense Secretary Mark Esper spoke out against White House considerations for the invocation of the Insurrection Act to quell protests in June 2020, and then-President Donald Trump blamed him for taking that option off the table, according to Esper's new memoir. At the time, Trump was concerned about looking "weak" as millions of protesters took to the streets to protest after the killing of George Floyd by Minneapolis police, Esper writes in A Sacred Oath, which the Washington Examiner obtained ahead of its planned release later this week. The former secretary's book provides new insights about the former president's state of mind and his unrelenting attempts to stop the protesters during the summer of unrest. TRUMP MUSED ABOUT FIGHTING DRUG WAR WITH MISSILE STRIKES IN MEXICO, EX-DEFENSE SECRETARY CLAIMS “I say this not only as secretary of defense, but also as a former soldier and a former member of the National Guard, the option to use active-duty forces in a law enforcement role should only be used as a matter of last resort, and only in the most urgent and...
    Members of the People’s Convoy, a group primarily comprising truckers protesting COVID-19 mandates, filed a lawsuit Monday claiming the Washington, D.C., government violated their First Amendment rights. Sixteen members of the trucking convoy claimed that D.C.’s Metropolitan Police Department set up blockades preventing their access to the city. "MPD formed the blockades for the sole purpose of preventing American citizens from entering our nation’s capital to exercise their constitutionally protected right to free speech,” the lawsuit states. “Of course, such action under color of state law violates Plaintiffs’ First Amendment rights.” The lawsuit claims that the convoy was turned away from entering D.C. four separate times. WATCH: SABRES GOALIE SINGS NATIONAL ANTHEM AFTER RECOVERING FROM INJURY TO VOCAL CORDS Throughout the month of March, the truckers took to the roads surrounding the nation’s capital to protest COVID-19 mandates and the national state of emergency. On March 27, the convoy announced it would leave D.C. and head to California to focus on specific pandemic-related measures there. "I think stopping those is...
    BEL AIR (WJZ) — Maryland Attorney General Brian Frosh will be in Harford County court Thursday seeking a judgment against Harford County Sheriff Jeff Gahler. The legal battle is centered on the authority of the Attorney General’s Independent Investigative Division regarding a fatal deputy-involved shooting Saturday. READ MORE: Attorneys General For Virginia And DC Launch Separate Investigations Into Washington Commanders' Financial DealingsDeputies shot and killed John Raymond Fauver, 53, of Whiteford, Saturday after responding to a call of a “suicidal” armed man, according to the Sheriff’s Office. By law, the Office of Attorney General is tasked with investigating the “police-involved death of a civilian.” Harford County Sheriff Jeff Gahler says his office has custody of all the evidence in the case, specifically the body-worn camera video. “If they’re in possession of (Body Worn Camera video) and they decide to release it outside the wishes of the State’s Attorney, that is certainly something, I believe, contrary to law, but contrary to being able to conduct a complete and unbiased investigation,” Gahler said. Court filings show Harford County Sheriff’s Office insisted its...
    There’s no way to pretend we didn’t see the athleticism Robert Hunt put on display last season. In one play during a Week 10 nationally televised 22-10 win over the Baltimore Ravens the 6-foot-6, 330-pounder caught the everyone’s attention when he grabbed a screen pass and rumbled downfield before acrobatically diving into the end zone for what would have been a 7-yard touchdown reception — if he had been an eligible receiver. While the play resulted in a penalty, the nation couldn’t stop talking — or tweeting — about the dazzling display of athleticism from the Dolphins big man, who went viral on social media. It was that exact athleticism, the fancy footwork and cat-like quickness of a 330-plus pounder, that made the Dolphins select the Louisiana Lafayette standout in the second round of the 2020 NFL draft, and eventually made him a rookie starter. Fast forward to his third season, and Miami’s new coaches are hopeful that Hunt’s athleticism will allow him to thrive in the wide-zone running scheme they are installing, which puts a premium on athletic offensive...
    A US Navy base in Florida had to call in reinforcements to remove a crocodile who had slithered onto one of its runways, forcing jets to land elsewhere.  Naval Air Station Key West shared a picture of the seven-foot, 100-pound female American Crocodile on social media Monday with a Super Hornet fighter jet taking off in the background.  'This airfield resident was soaking up some sun on one of our runways recently and didn't want to budge,' the Naval Air Station (NSA) wrote on Facebook. 'Wildlife Biologist Rosa Gonzales had to call in reinforcement from Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation to move the stubborn American crocodile outside the fence line.' Military officials at the base, which is mainly used as a training facility for air-to-air combat fighter aircraft, said the apex predator made its appearance on March 10 and was safely held captive before being released in another part of the area. 'We believe she is a local crocodile,' said Fish and Wildlife spokesman Jason Rafter. 'She has been tagged about four years before in that area. She's got a new...

    The Reuters news agency reported on Monday that the administration of President Joe Biden has scheduled a meeting with representatives of the Communist Party of Cuba to discuss “migration concerns” — namely, to convince the regime to take back members of an ethnic group that, in America, disproportionately votes Republican. The Castro regime, now under figurehead “president” Miguel Díaz-Canel, has launched a wave of violent repression ongoing for over half a year following the nationwide anti-communist protests on July 11, 2021. Violent police home raids and mass arrests leading to trials of as many as 30 people at once have become commonplace, as well as the sentencing of children to decades in prison for shouting anti-communist slogans or using a mobile phone to film a protest. The result has been an increase in the number of Cubans trying to flee the island. As President Barack Obama — whom Biden served as vice president — repealed the longstanding “wet foot/dry foot” policy that allowed Cubans traveling by sea to stay in America, Cubans have been increasingly flying to Central and South America and making...
    The Biden Justice Department has blocked a subpoena to depose former President Donald Trump sent by Peter Strzok, who sued the FBI for wrongful termination after the emergence of his anti-Trump texts. Strzok filed a civil lawsuit against then-Attorney General William Barr, FBI Director Chris Wray, and the bureau in August 2019, claiming he was wrongfully terminated in 2018 after the discovery of anti-Trump texts with former FBI lawyer Lisa Page, with whom he was romantically involved. He played a key role in opening the Crossfire Hurricane investigation in 2016 and interviewed retired Lt. Gen. Michael Flynn in January 2017. The Biden Justice Department is fighting his efforts to force Trump into a deposition. “Because former President Trump did not remove Mr. Strzok and did not release the text messages at issue in this case, there is no need to probe the former President’s intentions,” the Biden DOJ wrote. “Even if former President Trump aspired to tarnish Mr. Strzok’s reputation and to induce his separation from the FBI, it would matter only if the decision maker shared...
    The White House is unveiling new policies to bring down gas prices following President Joe Biden’s March announcement that the administration would release 1 million barrels of oil a day from the Strategic Petroleum Reserve. Tuesday’s announcement, coming as Biden visits an Iowa ethanol plant, will be an Environmental Protection Agency waiver allowing the summer sale of E15, gas blended with ethanol. E15 is usually barred from summer sales due to air pollution rules, but the White House believes that its use will lower gas prices by 10 cents a gallon.  “At the end of the day prices are too high, American families are feeling that,” Brian Deese, director of the National Economic Council, said Monday. “We need to take every action we can to try to make things more affordable and provide some relief as the Fed acts the way we anticipate it will.” Average gas prices have already dropped from $4.33 a month ago to $4.11 on Monday, but clearly more relief is needed. Inflation remains a major economic concern for people in the U.S., and a major political concern for the...
    A female scientist went limp as she and other climate change activists blocked a Washington DC highway as furious motorists late for work yelled at the police to arrest them. Roughly 10 Extinction Rebellion and Scientist Rebellion protesters blocked I-395 going into Washington DC on Friday morning, halting the morning commute for many disgruntled drivers. They are demanding President Joe Biden, 79, to declare a climate emergency.  In video obtained by the DailyMail.com from News 2 Share's Editor-in-Chief Ford Fischer, some commuters could be seen getting out of their cars cars to yell at police to remove them from the roadway, while others joined in on a chorus of car horns.  One commuter wearing a red quarter-zip, screamed: 'Could you arrest these guys so we can go to work? This isn't free speech!'  Another in a black sweatshirt yelled: 'We got to go to work, man! We got to feed our kids, come on! Get out of the way!'   Another popped out of his sunroof to tell the protesters to 'go to Capitol Hill if you're really concerned about this...
    On Thursday’s broadcast of the Fox News Channel’s “Special Report,” Senate Minority Leader Sen. Mitch McConnell (R-KY) argued that Democratic leaders in the Senate are worried that an amendment attaching the reinstatement of Title 42 to the coronavirus spending bill will end up passing due to the number of Senate Democrats who oppose lifting Title 42 and that’s why they’re trying to prevent the amendment from being voted on. McConnell said, [relevant remarks begin around 00:30] “We had agreed to a $10 billion package paid for — by that, I mean using re-purposed funds from the $2 trillion package the Democrats jammed through on a party-line basis last year. So it wasn’t new money, reprogrammed existing money. But, in the meantime…there was the decision about Title 42 and wreaking further havoc at the border with the argument that somehow COVID was behind us, making that same argument at the same time. So all we said was, we want to offer an amendment.” He added, “I think it’s entirely relevant to the decision on the $10 billion. And all we were...
    Attorney General Merrick Garland The Justice Department is investigating how 15 boxes of official records, including classified materials, made their way to Mar-a-Lago when Donald Trump left the White House. That’s the good news. The bad news is that, as it investigates, the Justice Department is blocking a parallel investigation by Congress. And frankly, given how Attorney General Merrick Garland has dragged his feet on investigating the lawlessness of Trump and his associates, it’s not confidence-inspiring. The Justice Department has blocked the National Archives from giving information about the 15 boxes of records to the House Oversight Committee, and Rep. Carolyn Maloney, the committee chair, wants to know why. RELATED STORY: Trump's Mar-a-Lago document stash contained 'top secret' documents, information on COVID-19 pandemic “I write today because the Department of Justice is preventing NARA from cooperating with the Committee's request, which is interfering with the Committee's investigation,” she wrote in a Thursday letter, CNN reports. “By blocking NARA from producing the documents requested by the Committee, the Department is obstructing the Committee's investigation.” While the committee “does not wish to interfere in...
    ISLAMABAD, Pakistan — Prime Minister Imran Khan dissolved Pakistan’s National Assembly and called for new elections Sunday, blocking a no-confidence vote that had been widely expected to remove him from office and plunging the country into a constitutional crisis. The extraordinary move deepened the political turmoil that has gripped Pakistan after Khan, the international cricket star turned politician, lost the backing of the country’s powerful military and a coalition of opposition parties. The crisis has been escalating for weeks, but its latest turn threatens to destabilize the fragile democracy in Pakistan, a nuclear-armed nation that supports the Taliban in neighboring Afghanistan and has struggled with instability and military coups since its founding 75 years ago. Still, even in a country accustomed to turmoil, Sunday’s events were stunning. “Never in the history of Pakistan has such a thing happened,” said Ashtar Ausaf Ali, the former attorney general of Pakistan. Opposition lawmakers lodged a petition challenging the move before the country’s Supreme Court, saying that it amounted to an “open coup against the country and the Constitution.” Allies of Khan said the...
    President Joe Biden’s Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) asked the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Fifth Circuit to overrule a lower court order that prohibits mandated transgender care for health insurance providers. Judge Reed O’Connor for the U.S. District Court for the Northern District of Texas issued an injunction in 2021 that prevented HHS from interpreting the Affordable Care Act’s anti-discrimination to require a health care provider involved in the legal dispute to provide health insurance for gender-transitioning procedures or abortion care. As Judge O’Connor explained: Here, the RFRA violation, the success on the merits, is all but conceded. No party disputes that the current Section 1557 regulatory scheme threatens to burden Christian Plaintiffs’ religious exercise in the same way as the 2016 scheme: namely, by placing substantial pressure on Christian Plaintiffs, in the form of fines and civil liability, to perform and provide insurance coverage for gender-transition procedures and abortions… The ACLU and the government narrowly read Plaintiffs’ live pleading as challenging just the 2016 Rule and not Section 1557 itself; thus, limiting the possible scope...
