The Thunder being down four with Durant and Westbrook a combined 11-34 is kind of remarkable.

Nihar Janga and Jairam Hathwar have spelled 20 words correctly in a row in the Scripps National Spelling Bee.

Jackie Bradley Jr. hitting streak ends but don't run away in fantasy. Two at-bats could have been homers. Hit ball hard. His emergence is real.

Jerry Crasnick ESPN Senior Writer 

Jackie Bradley Jr.'s hitting streak is done and in the books at 29 games. He went 0-for-4 against Colorado's Jon Gray and fell one short of tying Nomar Garciaparra and Tris Speaker for second place on the Red Sox career list at 30. Bradley was standing in the on-deck circle when Mookie Betts grounded out to end the game.

Andrew Bogut had 12 points all series entering tonight. He had 10 in the first half plus eight rebounds.

Speller Sylvie Lamontagne, who tied for ninth in the Scripps National Spelling Bee last year, improved her finish this year to fourth but misspelled chaoborine in Round 15. We're into the championship word list live on ESPN.

The second period ends with the Pittsburgh Penguins holding a 2-1 lead in Game 7 of the ECF against the Tampa Bay Lightning. Lightning captain didn't see the ice too often in the second period. He had only five shifts and overall has logged 6:29 of ice time. He's 3-for-3 on drops and still has two shots on net. His second shot of the game was a quality scoring chance but Penguins goalie Matt Murray made the save.

The Warriors are plus-10 with Draymond Green (minus-73 in OKC) on the floor. He has only 4 points, but he's rebounding, distributing and defending like the All-Star he is.

Bryce Harper's first homer in almost two weeks helped Dusty Baker become the 17th manager with 1700 career wins, as the Nats beat the Cards 2-1 in the opener of a four-game set. The W extends Washington's NL East over the idle Mets to one game.

Speller Smrithi Upadhyayula of Coppell, Texas, was the lone speller who missed in Round 11 of the Scripps National Spelling Bee. She incorrectly spelled theriaca. We're down to four spellers in the finals: two repeat finalists, one sibling of a bee champ and the top scorer on the spellers' written test on Tuesday. Watch live on ESPN.

Jerry Crasnick ESPN Senior Writer 

The longest hitting streak of the MLB season is in serious jeopardy. Jackie Bradley Jr. is 0-for-4 after an 8th inning groundout against Colorado's Jon Gray, and the Red Sox will need several men to reach base if he's going to get another shot in the 9th.

The first foul called against the Warriors occurred with 1:17 remaining in the first quarter.

Five spellers remain in the Scripps National Spelling Bee finals, including repeat finalists Snehaa Ganesh Kumar and Sylvie Lamontagne. The lone bee first-timer remaining is Nihar Janga, an 11-year-old from Austin, Texas.

The Penguins take a 1-0 lead on Bryan Rust's shot from the slot. The Lightning were in a midst of a change when goal was scored. Stamkos was just getting on the ice and was on for 4.9 seconds before the goal was scored.

Apparently that mental health day did the trick. Bryce Harper just crushed one off the facing of the third deck at Nats Park. His first bomb since May 13th ties it up at 1-1.

Jerry Crasnick ESPN Senior Writer 

Jackie Bradley Jr. crushes a Jon Gray pitch to dead center field, but Charlie Blackmon catches it at the fence about 400 feet from home plate. It takes luck to keep a hitting streak alive, and Bradley's hasn't been good tonight. Two long flyouts in his first three at-bats.
