Pacers Clip Hawks 101-85 to Even Series


Christopher Trotman/Getty Images(INDIANAPOLIS) -- Paul George was not going to let the Indiana Pacers continue to struggle.

George had 27 points, 10 rebounds, and six assists as the Pacers rallied to defeat the Atlanta Hawks 101-85 on Tuesday night in Game 2 of their first-round playoff series.

"That's why he was in the MVP conversation early," Pacers coach Frank Vogel said. "He always does those types of things, guarding the best perimeter player, rebounding the ball, deflecting the ball. His hands were all over the place. It makes him one of the most complete players in the game when he plays like he did tonight."

The Pacers trailed 38-27 during the second quarter and were down four at halftime.  They came out surging in the second half, outscoring Atlanta 31-13 in the third quarter to seize control of the game.

Paul Millsap led the Hawks with 19 points.  Game 3 will be played on Thursday night in Atlanta.  The Pacers have only two wins there since December 2006.

Albert Pujols Hits 500th Career Home Run


Jason Wise/MLB Photos via Getty Images(WASHINGTON) --  Albert Pujols hit his 500th career home run in thrilling fashion.

Pujols became the first major leaguer to hit his 499th and 500th homers in the same game, leading the Los Angeles Angels to a 7-2 win over the Washington Nationals Tuesday night.  He also drove in five runs.

"It tastes better with a win," Pujols said after becoming the 26th player in big league history to reach the milestone.  "I knew this year, it was going to happen, whether it was tonight, tomorrow, two months from now. So my goal was just to prepare myself every day to try to help this organization win."

Tyler Skaggs (2-0) gave up two runs in seven innings for the win.  Pujols now has eight home runs this season, all in the past 13 games.  His 19 RBIs lead the team.

Spurs' Gregg Popovich Named NBA Head Coach Of The Year


San Antonio Spurs/NBA(SAN ANTONIO) -- San Antonio Spurs head coach Gregg Popovich was named the NBA coach of the year on Tuesday. He joins Pat Riley and Don Nelson as the only coaches to win the award three times.

Last season, Popovich led San Antonio to the NBA Finals, where they lost in seven games to the Miami Heat. He and the Spurs regrouped and finished the 2013-14 campaign with the league’s best record, 62-20, and home-court advantage throughout the playoffs.

It’s the 15th straight season that Popovich and the Spurs have won at least 50 games, and the fourth time during that run that the club has eclipsed the 60-win plateau.

Popovich finished with 59 first-place votes, followed by Phoenix’s Jeff Hornack with 37 first-place votes and Chicago’s Tom Thibodeau with 12 first-place votes.

MLB Suspends Four Players For Altercation


Mike McGinnis/Getty Images(NEW YORK) -- Major League Baseball suspended Milwaukee Brewers outfielder Carlos Gomez and three other players for their roles in the bench-clearing altercation during Sunday’s game with the Pittsburgh Pirates.

Gomez received a three-game suspension, while his teammate, catcher Martin Maldonado, was banned for five games. Pirates outfielder Travis Snider was given a two-game suspension and catcher Russell Martin will sit for one game. All four received fines as well.

Gomez, Snider and Martin will appeal their suspensions and be allowed to play, while Maldonado will serve his immediately.

The altercation began when Gomez and Pirates starting pitcher Gerrit Cole exchanged heated words after Gomez was admiring what he thought was a home run. Gomez wound up with a triple.

Rockies Place Outfielder Michael Cuddyer on 15-Day DL


Jason Wise/MLB Photos via Getty Images(DENVER) -- Now at age 35, the Colorado Rockies are playing it safe with Michael Cuddyer as they have decided to place the outfielder on the 15-day disabled list with a strained left hamstring.

"Extremely frustrating," Cuddyer said of his setback. "This is nagging more than anything else."

Even though the injury isn't considered serious, the team is not taking any chances.

Cuddyer, the NL's Batting Champion last season, was off to another great start this season in his second year in Colorado. In 16 games, Cuddyer was batting .317 with three home runs.

"Cuddy is one of the best players on this team," shortstop Troy Tulowitzki said. "More than even on this team, in the game. It's definitely going to make an impact. But we're deep enough; we're going to be OK."

Tulowitzki wasn't exaggerating when he talked about the team's depth. The Rockies this season lead Major League Baseball in runs, batting average, and are second in on base percentage.

White Sox Place Pitcher Chris Sale on 15-Day DL


Christian Petersen/Getty Images(NEW YORK) -- In the midst of a breakout season during his young career, the Chicago White Sox have placed starting pitcher Chris Sale on the 15-day disabled list with a strained flexor muscle in his throwing arm.

There was initial concern just how serious Sale's injury was, but an MRI revealed no ligament damage, meaning Tommy John Surgery will not be required. He is expected to return once he is eligible to come off the disabled list.

In his third season as a starting pitcher, the 25-year-old Sale made four starts and went 3-0 with a 2.30 ERA.

He ranks seventh among American League pitchers in innings pitched, third in strikeouts, and fourth in WHIP.

Sale's innings pitched has risen dramatically since being converted as a starting pitcher. He pitched 94.1 innings combined his first two seasons, but has thrown 433.2 innings total going back to the 2012 season.

Replacing Sale on the roster will be left-hander Charlie Leesman from Triple-A Charlotte.

NBA Fines Raptors GM Masai Ujiri $25,000 for Expletive


Bruce Bennett/Getty Images(NEW YORK) -- A poor moment of judgement has forced the NBA to fine Toronto Raptors general manager Masai Ujiri $25,000 for his comments during a pep rally prior to the team's playoff game against the Brooklyn Nets on Saturday.

At the rally outside the Air Canada Centre prior to the game, he said: "F--- Brooklyn!"

The Nets wound up winning Game 1, 94-87.

"Wrong choice of words out there," Uijiri said later. "It is really not about me. It is about the players and the playoffs...[I was] just trying to get the crowd out there rattled -- wrong choice of words. I apologize to kids out there and to the Brooklyn guys. Nothing against them. Just trying to get our fans going. That's it."

This was the first time this season Uijiri took questions from the media.

Uijiri was hired by the Raptors back in May 2013 after he served as the general manager for the Denver Nuggets.

Seahawks Acquire Pryor from Oakland


Ezra Shaw/Getty Images(ALAMEDA, Calif.) -- The Seattle Seahawks acquired quarterback Terrelle Pryor in a trade from the Oakland Raiders on Monday for a seventh round pick in the upcoming draft.

Pryor was the last draft pick of the late Oakland owner Al Davis and is set to make $705,000 in 2014.

Pryor asked to be traded after the season when he lost the starting job to undrafted rookie Matt McGloin late in 2013. The Raiders also made a move this offseason to bring in Matt Schaub, the former Houston Texans signal caller, to be the starter this year.

A third round pick in the 2011 supplemental draft, Pryor saw limited action in his first two seasons before winning the job outright over Matt Flynn prior to last year. In his first four starts, Pryor threw for 845 yards and four touchdowns while completing 68.1 percent of his passes.

However, a knee injury suffered during a loss to the New York Giants began his downfall. Pryor would throw just one touchdown while tossing eight interceptions in the next four games before McGloin took over.

Pryor now joins the reigning Super Bowl Champions as a backup to Russell Wilson. He will have to compete for that job as well with both Tavaris Jackson and B.J. Daniels.

Memphis Evens Series with Thunder in OT Win


Ronald Martinez/Getty Images (OKLAHOMA CITY, Okla.) -- Zach Randolph had 25 points, including the go-ahead bucket in overtime, as Memphis outlasted Oklahoma City for a 111-105 overtime win on Monday night.

The victory now evens the series between the two at 1-1.

The Grizzlies had to overcome a late rally by Oklahoma City in the fourth quarter as Kevin Durant scored 20 of his 36 points after the third to help force the extra session. Memphis led 98-93 with under 15 seconds to play in regulation when Durant hit an improbable shot from the left corner while falling out of bounds. He was also fouled on the play and converted on the free-throw to bring the Thunder within one point.

On the other end, Mike Conley made one of two free throws to put the Grizzlies ahead 99-97 with 12 seconds remaining in the fourth. After Russell Westbrook missed a potential game-winning three, Kendrick Perkins collected an offensive rebound and made the layup that sent the game into overtime.

Both squads traded baskets in the first few moments of the extra frame before Tony Allen found Randolph to put Memphis up 107-105 with 26 seconds to play in overtime. Serge Ibaka was then called for traveling while both Courtney Lee and Randolph each made a pair of free throws to seal the game.

Randolph led all Memphis players with 25 points while Conley recorded a double-double with 19 points and 12 assists. Durant led all scorers with 36 points and pulled in 11 rebounds. Game Three of the series will be played on Thursday in Memphis.
