Celtics top Heat...Blues rally...Banged up Yankees

MIAMI (AP) — Jayson Tatum and Jaylen Brown led the Boston Celtics to a 93-80 victory over Miami and a three-games-to-two lead in the NBA's Eastern Conference finals. Brown had a game-high 25 points and Tatum just missed a triple-double, finishing with 22 points, 12 rebounds and nine assists. Bam Adebayo (ad-eh-BY'-oh) had a team-best 18 points for the Heat, who shot a miserable 32% from the field and missed 38 of their 45 3-point attempts.

DENVER (AP) — Tyler Bozek scored in overtime to complete the St. Louis Blues' comeback in a 5-4 victory over the Avalanche in Colorado. The Avs were on the verge of advancing to the NHL's Western Conference finals until Robert Thomas scored his second goal of the third period, beating Darcy Kuemper (KEHM'-pur) with 54 seconds left in regulation. Colorado fell despite Nathan MacKinnon's hat trick.

NEW YORK (AP) — New York Yankees slugger Giancarlo Stanton is going on the injured list for the fourth straight season. Stanton was placed on the 10-day IL with a strained right calf and reliever Jonathan Loáisiga landed on the 15-day injured list with right shoulder inflammation. Left fielder Joey Gallo was reinstated from the COVID-19 injured list.

UNDATED (AP) — Two people familiar with the situation said quarterback Collin Kaepernick was scheduled to work out for the Las Vegas Raiders yesterday. Kaepernick hasn’t played since the end of the 2016 season when he was cut by San Francisco when the new regime led by coach Kyle Shanahan wanted to go a different direction at quarterback. Kaepernick never got another opportunity even to work out for NFL teams as he alleged he had been blackballed over his protests during the anthem the previous season.

LAS VEGAS (AP) — The NFL says it will appeal a ruling denying the league’s request to move former Las Vegas Raiders coach Jon Gruden’s lawsuit over leaked emails from a public courtroom into closed-door arbitration. In a statement, the NFL denied Gruden’s claims that league officials or Commissioner Roger Goodell leaked racist, sexist and homophobic emails by Gruden to force him to resign last October. A Las Vegas judge refused requests to dismiss Gruden’s claim outright or move it to out-of-court talks that could be overseen by Goodell.
