    THE Premier League trapdoor will open for one more team to join Watford and Norwich this weekend. One of Everton, Leeds or Burnley will be playing Championship football next season. 1 Frank Lampard looked like he had turned it around with the Toffees, but a 3-2 home defeat to Brentford leaves them in big danger. Leeds rescued a point at home to Brighton and managed to move out of the bottom three. That was at the expense of Burnley, who fell to a 1-0 defeat at Tottenham. And when combined together, those teams could put out a fearsome XI which would not only comfortably beat the drop, but would also challenge for a European finish.

    The Ravens should be looking for a wide receiver who has as much name recognition as production. One of the leading candidates appeared to be free-agent veteran Jarvis Landry, but he reportedly signed a one-year deal with the New Orleans Saints on Friday. Landry’s skill set is comparable to second-year Ravens wideout Rashod Bateman, but the biggest difference is that Landry has been in the NFL since 2014 and has 688 career receptions for 7,598 yards. Bateman had 46 catches for 515 yards a year ago. Other than that, they are the same type of player. After the Ravens traded speedy wide receiver Marquise Brown to the Arizona Cardinals nearly two weeks ago on the first night of the NFL draft, they knew they had to find someone who could draw the attention of defensive coordinators when they focused on tight end Mark Andrews. Landry would have been the easiest fix. Now, the Ravens are forced to look elsewhere. There are other prominent free-agent receivers still available such as Odell Beckham Jr., Will Fuller V and Julio Jones, but they...

There are other prominent free-agent receivers still available such as Odell Beckham Jr., Will Fuller V and Julio Jones, but they aren’t good fits because of the Ravens’ run-dominant offense.

    SAN FRANCISCO — The Warriors were minutes away from a potentially series-shifting loss. Ja Morant, out for Game 4 with knee soreness, wasn’t standing in their way. A 30-point win in Game 3 wasn’t the momentum shifter it seemed to be. With coach Steve Kerr out due to COVID-19, the Warriors were listless. And down 10 two minutes into the fourth quarter, they didn’t seem to have an answer. Steph Curry entered mid-way through the fourth with a reminder: In the playoffs, he always has an answer. Even if it’s subtle. Without panic, Curry dropped 18 of his 32 points in the fourth quarter to lead Golden State to a 101-98 Game 4 win. The Warriors took their first and only lead with 45 seconds remaining in the game on a pair of Curry free throws. Eight of his 18 points in the fourth were on free throws, a testament to the adjustment he made to challenge the Memphis defense and seek contact to get to the line. He also hit two key 3-pointers that lit up a Chase Center...
    The Whiteboard is The Step Back’s daily basketball newsletter, covering the NBA, WNBA and more. Subscribe here to get it delivered to you via email each morning. The morning, ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski broke news that Nikola Jokic had been selected as the NBA MVP, with an official announcement to come later this week. It was Jokic’s second consecutive MVP award and put him in a select group as just the 12th player in league history to win back-to-back MVPs. It appeared to be a tight race this season with conversation centering around Jokic, Giannis Antetokounmpo and Joel Embiid. However, Jokic has an extremely compelling narrative with some of his key teammates missing most or all of the season and a historic stat line to buoy it. You can play “find the eye-popping” stat with Jokic forever but here are a few that really put the icing on his MVP cake this year.1. Nikola Jokic became just the third player ever to average 25+ points, 10+ rebounds and 7+ assists per gameJokic joined elite company this season by becoming just the third...
    This weekend, a player the Orioles passed on with the first overall draft pick will beat the one they selected to Camden Yards. When Mike Elias became the Orioles’ executive vice president and general manager in November 2018, he was already on the clock for what might stand as the most significant decision of his tenure with Baltimore. The result of that choice — selecting Oregon State catcher Adley Rutschman first overall in the 2019 draft instead of Texas high school shortstop Bobby Witt Jr. — will be on display at Camden Yards throughout the weekend, with Witt coming to town with the Kansas City Royals, who grabbed him at No. 2. If not for a right tricep strain Rutschman suffered just as major league spring training was beginning, this could have represented their first major league matchup. Baseball’s top prospect is getting close to arriving, though; the same day Witt and the Royals begin a three-game series at Camden Yards, Rutschman will play his first game with Triple-A Norfolk this season after going 11-for-25 with four walks against one...
    DETROIT (AP) — Miguel Cabrera achieved another major milestone and the Detroit Tigers ruled the day. Austin Gomber and the Colorado Rockies won the night. Cabrera needed only one at-bat Saturday to deliver his long-awaited 3,000th career hit, quickly reaching the mark as the Tigers routed the Rockies 13-0 in the opener of a day-night doubleheader. Gomber tossed six scoreless innings as the Rockies spoiled the major league pitching debut of Beau Brieske with a 3-2 victory in the nightcap. Cabrera became the 33rd player in major league history and first Venezuelan-born player to reach the 3,000-hit mark when he grounded a first-inning single into right field. The hit came against fellow Venezuelan Antonio Senzatela and set off rousing cheers and chants at Comerica Park. Cabrera added a bases-loaded, two-run single in the sixth, then was pulled for a pinch-runner and drew another huge ovation. He had a first-inning single in the nightcap and finished the day with 3,002 hits. The 39-year-old Cabrera became just the seventh player with 500 home runs and 3,000 hits. He joined an exclusive club...

Cabrera added a bases-loaded, two-run single in the sixth, then was pulled for a pinch-runner and drew another huge ovation as he trotted off with 3,001 hits. The 39-year-old Cabrera became just the seventh player with 500 home runs and 3,000 hits. He joined an exclusive club with Hank Aaron, Willie Mays, Eddie Murray, Rafael Palmeiro, Albert Pujols and Alex Rodriguez. He’s the seventh Latino player reach the 3,000 mark. Pujols was the previous player to reach the mark, doing it in 2018. Cabrera is the third player to get his 3,000th hit in a Tigers uniform,...
    DETROIT (AP) — Tigers star Miguel Cabrera delivered the 3,000th hit of his decorated career Saturday, becoming the 33rd major leaguer to reach the mark and the first player from Venezuela to accomplish the feat. Still an imposing presence at 39, Cabrera made history by grounding an opposite-field single to right in the first inning of Detroit’s game against Colorado. Cabrera immediately raised his right arm as he headed toward first base. The crowd at Comerica Park gave him a rousing ovation and fireworks were shot out of the scoreboard. The milestone hit came off Antonio Senzatela, a fellow Venezuelan, in the first game of a day-night doubleheader. A two-time AL MVP, a Triple Crown winner and an 11-time All-Star with four batting titles, Miggy’s place among the Major League Baseball greats already was assured long before this afternoon in Detroit. As a 20-year-old rookie, Cabrera helped the Florida Marlins win the 2003 World Series championship. All these years later, stamping his name onto the 3,000-hit list had a nice ring, too. And it’ll certainly look good on a plaque...
    MIAMI (AP) — These are Jimmy Butler’s three highest-scoring games in a Miami uniform: 40 points against Milwaukee, 40 points against the Los Angeles Lakers, 45 points against Atlanta. And those efforts have quite a bit in common. He had at least 20 shot attempts and 12 free throws in each of those games.

Butler’s best Miami moments tend to come when it matters most — the postseason.

    Chicago Cubs right fielder Seiya Suzuki needed only one full week of games to earn his first accolades in Major League Baseball. Suzuki’s sizzling start has helped the Cubs produce the best offense in the majors, leading in key areas including batting average, on-base percentage, doubles and OPS. Pitchers have struggled to solve Suzuki, who posted a .412/.545/1.059 slash line in his last six games with five runs, seven hits, two doubles, three home runs, five RBIs and five walks to earn the National League Player of the Week award. “During spring training, I was working on my timing and my swing,” Suzuki said through interpreter Toy Matsushita before Monday night’s 4-2 victory over the Tampa Bay Rays at Wrigley Field. “There were a lot of things that I was trying to be conscious of during spring training, but once the season started, it’s just me and the pitcher. “I was also worried about the velocity and the different pitch types they have over here. … But once the season started, it was just the game. I just want to...
    St. Charles East coach Len Asquini put the names of all the former Saints who were drafted into professional baseball on the side of the press box. Asquini, who coached several of those players, believes he will have to reserve a spot on the list for junior third baseman Jake Zitella. “He’s going to be on that board,” Asquini said of Zitella. “He’s the next player who is going to go up there.” That’s also part of the plan for Zitella, who committed to Illinois before this season. “My overall goal is to be drafted and be drafted high,” Zitella said. “I want to say I always wanted to play Major League Baseball, but I started taking it more seriously freshman year. “My grind doesn’t stop now.” Asquini took notice of Zitella when he was 13 years old. “You could see his bat speed and the ball sounded different off his bat then,” Asquini said. “You knew there was something. He was just a little bit ahead of everybody. He’s stayed better than the others.” Talent evaluators across the state...
    Getty Jarrad Davis greets the Lions fans after a 2019 game. When Jarrad Davis was revealed to be returning to the Detroit Lions, the move likely caught plenty of the team’s fans by surprise. Last offseason, Davis was essentially allowed to look around and ended up finding a better deal on the market. That doesn’t mean he ever stopped thinking about Detroit, though. In fact quite the opposite.

    NBA free agent center Enes Kanter Freedom may have changed his name this year, but he feels far from free to play in the best basketball league in the world at the moment, thanks to his political views. The 29-year-old was released by the Houston Rockets on Feb. 14 but has spent much of the last few seasons speaking out against various social issues. This includes the NBA’s ongoing business relationship with China while the country’s ongoing genocide against Muslim Uyghurs continues. But while Freedom had some spare time, The New York Times decided to reach out to NBA big man himself to get his take on the matter. While he didn’t agree to be interviewed in person or over the phone, he did respond via text message. “It doesn’t take a rocket scientist to realize why I got little playing time and was released,” he said. “But it does take people with a conscience to speak out and say it’s not right.” Being outspoken against Dictators & Genocide should NOT be controversial or make you unemployable in this...
    WHAT A pleasure it is to be asked for my thoughts on Arsenal providing four players for the England squad announced by Gareth Southgate last week. It has been a fair few years since the likes of Danny Welbeck, Jack Wilshere and Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain were in and round the international scene simultaneously and I cannot imagine the last time my team contributed four to a squad. 1Bukayo Saka should be a cert to start for Gareth Southgate's EnglandCredit: Getty In part, this is easily explained by the lack of English first teamers in the later Arsene Wenger era. But, if we're honest, perhaps even those who were looked at, such as Kieran Gibbs, Calum Chambers, Dean Holding and let us not forget Carl Jenkinson, were not truly international class. How different then in 2022 to be an Arsenal fan, not only proud to have four of our own in the squad, but even more that two of them, Saka and Smith-Rowe were produced at Hale End. It is desperately sad for Aaron Ramsdale to pick up a minor injury that...
    COLOMBIAN star Julian Quinones went from hero to zero in a matter of seconds during Atlas’ clash against Chivas. The forward was amazingly sent-off just moments after he scored a dramatic additional time equaliser in the Mexican top-flight match. 1Julian Quinones went from hero to zero as he was sent-off in Atlas’ clash against ChivasCredit: TUDN And it was all due to an obscene gesture during his goal celebration. Chivas had taken the lead in the 66th-minute thanks to Roberto Alvarado. But after some heavy-pressure, Quinones rescued a point in the dying seconds for his side. And that sparked wild scenes that ended in X-rated fashion.

    ANTONIO CONTE is adamant Tottenham were to right sell Dele Alli in January. The Italian boss believes the fallen England star could still resurrect his flagging career, insisting: It’s in his hands. 2Antonio Conte is adamant Tottenham were to right sell Dele Alli in JanuaryCredit: Getty 2Dele Alli left to join Frank Lampard's EvertonCredit: Reuters But Conte is not worried about the decision biting him on the backside when 25-year-old Dele returns to Spurs with new club Everton tonight. He claims none of the players he has got rid of in his managerial career have ever gone on to better things. Dele left for Goodison on transfer deadline day after a drastic drop in form, fitness and focus led to him falling out of the first-team in his last few years at Spurs. In fact, come the end of his stay he could not even get on the bench. That said, he remained a huge favourite with the club’s fans, who were sorry to see him go. But Conte said: “I think that it was a good decision for the...
