Lardner was a great inspiration to Jim Murray, who, among many others, inspired Rick Reilly. Plenty of sportswriting traces to him. Legend.

Pierce trolls Raptors perfectly
NBA 

Paul Pierce talked a lot of trash before the Wizards-Raptors series but he backed it up. The Wizards finished off a sweep Sunday, and Pierce capped the day with some amazing Facebook trolling. See his posts

Cavs much better with Love
NBA 

With LeBron James, Kyrie Irving and Kevin Love on the floor together this season, the Cavs outscored opponents at a rate of more than 13 points per 48 minutes which would rank 1st in the NBA over the course of the season. In 370 minutes that James and Irving played without Love, the Cavs' scoring margin fell by 9 points per 48 minutes -- but is still among among the top-5.

Dwight Howard might need to find his Superman cape after he elevated for an overthrown lob and threw down this massive hammer of a slam dunk.

Mavs survive to play another day
NBA 

Houston and Dallas played a game lacking in rhythm, but Monta Ellis (31 pts) led the Mavericks to a 121-109 win to prevent a Rockets sweep. The win breaks a 4-game postseason losing streak for Dallas at home. Box score

Tyson Chandler and Dwight Howard get some techs. We have a timeout on the floor. Looks like we're headed back to Houston for Game 5.
