Golf. Tiger Woods y Phil Mickelson: la exhibición de dos leyendas que recaudó una fortuna a beneficio

Hubo bromas y risas, hubo chicanas y apuestas. Hubo competitividad a la altura de los galardones que acumulan entre los cuatro. Hubo golf, que no es poco en tiempos de encierro. Sobre todo, hubo espíritu solidario.Tiger Woods demostró estar en condiciones óptimas y, en pareja con Peyton Manning, derrotó por uno a Phil Mickelson, quien contó con la contribución de Tom Brady, en un match benéfico que anoche llevaba recaudados más de 20 millones de dólares que se destinarán a paliar los efectos del...

It’s Time to Rectify Taiwan’s Shameful Treatment on the International Stage

‘Will the WHO reconsider Taiwan’s membership?” The question — asked by Radio Television Hong Kong’s Yvonne Tong — caused Dr. Bruce Aylward, a senior advisor to the Director-General of the World Health Organization (WHO) and a leader in its response to the coronavirus, to put on quite the show. Initially, Aylward feigned as if he had not heard. When Tong offered to repeat her query, Aylward insisted it was “OK” and suggested that they “move on to another one.” For a third time, Tong pressed the i...

How Rockets' playoff loss to Warriors led Houston to make specific change

Playing without Kevin Durant, the Warriors went on the road in Game 6 of last year's Western Conference semifinals and defeated the Houston Rockets. Golden State outscored Houston 36-26 in the fourth quarter -- in large part because of Steph Curry's 23 points -- and won 118-113. "My biggest disappointment was our fourth quarter," Rockets general manager Daryl Morey recently told ESPN's Zach Lowe on The Lowe Post podcast.

Daryl Morey took a massive gamble, and the championship odds are still against his Rockets

In a conversation with ESPN's Zach Lowe from the Sloan Sports Analytics Conference over the weekend, Morey conceded that trading Clint Capela and a first-round pick for Robert Covington was a massive gamble, one necessary to give his good Rockets team its only chance to be great. Morey landed James Harden in a 2012 swindle, and ever since he has cycled through various stars and supporting casts in an effort to maximize his championship chances. Harden's game makes for a fairly simple r...

A Triple-Double (with 10 turnovers) For Harden

Saturday's six-game slate provided plenty of highlights, including a rare quadruple-double for James Harden, another phenomenal effort from Christian Wood, and a monster double-double from Jonas Valanciunas. All five Hornets starters scored in double-figures in their surprising victory over the Rockets, and they had three players tally 20+ points. Terry Rozier led the way with a team-high 24 points to go along with three rebounds, six assists, one steal and six 3-pointers in 38 minutes.

Watch James Harden’s quadruple-double (10 turnovers) as Hornets upset Rockets

The Charlotte Hornets entered a four-game homestand to open the week on a two-game winning streak that included a road victory at the defending NBA champion Toronto. After losses to Milwaukee, San Antonio and Denver, a meeting with the Houston Rockets didn't seem a recipe for snapping a three-game losing streak. But Charlotte scored the first 20 points and Terry Rozier finished with 24 to help the Hornets beat the slumping Rockets 108-99 on Saturday night.

Kawhi Leonard has 25 points, Clippers rout Rockets 120-105

Kawhi Leonard scored 25 points and the Los Angeles Clippers rolled over the Houston Rockets 120-105 on Thursday night for their sixth straight victory. The Rockets were done in by their shooting woes in a game that was billed as a matchup of two of the top teams in the Western Conference, but was a rout almost from the start. Houston had a chance to take the season series and secure the tiebreaker over the Clippers, but the loss left the teams tied 2-2.

Rockets reportedly work out Luc Mbah a Moute

In the small-ball world they chose to inhabit, the Houston Rockets cannot have enough switchable, veteran wing players. Which is why Luc Mbah a Moute is getting a look. The 11-year NBA veteran had a workout with the Rockets, reports Kelly Iko of The Athletic.

Spike Lee: I'm done watching Knicks at MSG this season

Spike Lee still has his courtside seat, though the New York Knicks had to tell their superfan to find another way to get there. Lee said he won't be sitting there the rest of this season, anyway. The Oscar-winning writer-director told ESPN on Tuesday he wouldn't be attending another Knicks home game this season after a disagreement with Madison Square Garden officials a night earlier over which elevator he could use.

Westbrook scores 41, Rockets beat Celtics 111-110 in OT

Russell Westbrook scored 41 points and Harden had 21, including a pair of free throws with 25 seconds left in overtime to give the Houston Rockets a 111-110 victory on Saturday night. Boston rallied from a four-point deficit in the final 20 seconds of regulation and sent the game to overtime on Brown's 3-pointer at the buzzer after an intentionally missed free throw. The Celtics scored the first basket of the extra period and led 110-109 but did not score in the final 2:49 of the game, miss...

Celtics-Rockets Takeaways: Boston had a problem with Houston in OT thriller

The march towards a deep playoff run for Boston will mean displaying a high level of versatility at both ends of the floor. There are few teams in the NBA that will test you at both ends of the floor more than the Houston Rockets, whose unorthodox brand of basketball has fueled their recent run of success. That's a lesson the Celtics learned once again, failing to come up with a much-needed defensive stop or a made shot in the closing minutes of a 111-110 overtime loss to the Rockets, their...

Giannis Antetokounmpo bids to end James Harden feud but defends style of play

Giannis Antetokounmpo insisted he was not looking for a "back-and-forth" with James Harden but defended his style of play after the Houston Rockets star suggested his power game "takes no skill at all". The reigning NBA MVP mocked Harden's high usage rate and lax defensive game during the All-Star break, prompting a response this week. Antetokounmpo, the clear favourite to be named MVP again, put up 32 points and 13 rebounds as his Milwaukee Bucks improved to 51-8 on Friday with a 133-86 th...

Why Robert Williams is the Celtics' wild card

It's unfair to expect too much from Robert Williams when he returns to the Boston Celtics' active roster Saturday night against the Houston Rockets, but Williams is undeniably a wild card for the Celtics and their hopes of title contention down the stretch of the 2019-20 season. Williams, the 27th overall pick in the 2018 draft, has missed the last 35 games due to a sore left hip. A scan Thursday showed no degradation from the recent uptick in activity and coach Brad Stevens said Frida...

As expected, Rockets sign veteran Jeff Green for remainder of season

It turns out, he was a perfect fit. Through four games, playing a little more than 19 minutes a game, Green averaged 9.8 points a game on a ridiculous 89.6 true shooting percentage. That's not sustainable (he's shooting 61.5 percent from three), but it was enough for the Rockets to sign Green for the remainder of the season, something the team announced Friday.

Celtics' Robert Williams cleared to return; Kemba Walker unlikely to play vs. Rockets

LIVE stream the Celtics all season and get the latest news and analysis on all of your teams from NBC Sports Boston by downloading the My Teams App. Williams has not played since Dec. 6 because of a left hip injury. His return to the lineup, which could come as soon as Saturday night versus the Houston Rockets at TD Garden, should give the Celtics valuable interior defense, another player to throw in pick-and-rolls, and additional rebounding.

James Harden questions Giannis Antetokounmpo's skill in response to All-Star digs

James Harden did not appear to take kindly to light-hearted criticism from Giannis Antetokounmpo during the All-Star break as he suggested the NBA MVP's style of play "takes no skill at all". Houston Rockets star Harden is renowned for his high usage rate, and All-Star captain Antetokounmpo instead selected Kemba Walker at the recent draft. Then, after the game, which Harden's Team LeBron won, Antetokounmpo claimed Team Giannis had targeted "whoever James Harden was guarding".

The center of innovation: The Rockets’ big gamble of ditching the center position is paying off … for now

On Feb. 4, 2020, the Houston Rockets were the eighth-worst rebounding team in the league, and they allowed more shots at the rim than all but four teams, none of whom has championship aspirations. As the trade deadline approached, the Rockets could have searched for reinforcements, but instead, they decided they were never going to be a good rebounding team. Capela, Gerald Green and Nene (a backup center) were moved in a massive four-team deal that largely shifted the big man's salary for R...
