Bucks edge Nets in OT in Game 7, withstand Kevin Durant’s 48

NEW YORK (AP) — A Game 7 thriller, the NBA’s first do-or-die game to go to overtime in 15 years, came down to a matter of inches. If Brooklyn star Kevin Durant was just slightly farther away — or if his foot was slightly smaller — he ends the highest-scoring Game 7 ever by an NBA player with a 3-pointer to win the series. “We got lucky his toe was on the line and they called it a 2,” Milwaukee’s Khris Middleton said. “But once he hits that shot, we’ve got to forget about it. There’s still ballga...

Make amateur radio club nets fun

If your club owns a repeater, or has access to one, your club should have a weekly net. These nets inform members about club events, provide a forum for club members to get help with any technical problems they may have, build camaraderie among club members, and are just fun. At least they should be fun. Too often, these nets turn out to be a drudge-fest. Net controls slog through a list of check-ins, who dutifully say when called upon, “No traffic.” If your net is like this, you’re missing an ...

How talent, luck, and circumstance helped Kevin Garnett make $326 million to become the second-highest-paid player in NBA history

Kevin Garnett has a lot to smile about. AP Kevin Garnett retired after 21 seasons, 1 MVP, 1 championship, and is now a Hall of Famer. He also retired as the highest-paid player in NBA history and is still second behind only LeBron James. Garnett was talented, but he was also the right player, in the right place, at the right time.

Analysis: Frank Vogel, Lakers coaching staff has helped grow scrappy mentality

After a gritty victory over a highly favored Nets team on Saturday night, Frank Vogel couldn’t pick just one player to give props. The Lakers coach, in fact, listed all 15 of his regular roster players by name — whether they took the court or not — for their contributions. He commended the physical presence of Andre Drummond and Markieff Morris; he credited Kentavious Caldwell-Pope for “defending his butt off” through an early shooting slump; of his ejected point guard who scored 19 points, Voge...

Lakers stun Brooklyn Nets, get defensive in shorthanded win

Say hello to the new guys. Before Thursday, Andre Drummond hadn’t played one full game as a Laker. It will be days still before Ben McLemore steps foot inside the team’s practice facility. But both were essential pieces as the Lakers (33-20) — short of their top four scorers this season — stunned the Eastern Conference-leading Brooklyn Nets, 126-101, in their own building. Drummond had a team-best 20 points and 11 rebounds hustling in the paint, while McLemore dazzled with five straight field go...
