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.

PBS documentary series ‘Asian Americans’ reveals personal stories and significant history

Renee Tajima-Peña took her first shot at a documentary on the Asian American experience 25 years ago only to be stymied in her attempts just as other Asian American filmmakers had been before her. But over time things changed, says Tajima-Peña, a professor of Asian American Studies at UCLA whose 1987 documentary, “Who Killed Vincent Chin?” was nominated for an Academy Award. “You have this kind of percolating opening of the Asian American presence,” she says during a recent call to talk about “A...

Adam Silver says NBA ‘not in a position to make decisions’ about resuming play as player salaries take a hit

If there’s a way forward to returning to the court, the NBA will find it. The real question is when. Commissioner Adam Silver said on a Friday conference call that “everything is on the table” and “all rules are off” when it comes to the league’s return. There is no firm cutoff date when the NBA would cancel the season, and they might even play regular season games and a full postseason schedule, even if next season’s start is delayed. But while the NBA is scrambling to remain prepared if a wind...

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...

Billionaires want people back to work. Employees aren’t so sure

By Max Abelson and Donald Moore, Bloomberg The billionaire Tom Golisano was smoking a Padron cigar on his patio in Florida on Tuesday afternoon. He was worried. “The damages of keeping the economy closed as it is could be worse than losing a few more people,” said Golisano, founder and chairman of the payroll processor Paychex Inc. “I have a very large concern that if businesses keep going along the way they’re going then so many of them will have to fold.” President Donald Trump says he doesn’t...

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 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.

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...
