Durant an "Assassin" as Warriors Take 3-0 Series Lead Over Cavs, MLB Hall-of-Famer Red Schoendienst Dies at 95 and Terrell Owens Won't Attend Hall of Fame Induction
The Cleveland Cavaliers now trail three games in the NBA finals after losing to the Golden State Warriors 110-102 last night. The star of the game was Kevin Durant, who scored a career playoff-high of 43 points. Cavs superstar LeBron James acknowledged Durant's performance and ability, calling him an "assassin" while speaking to the press after the game.
"He's one of the best players I've ever played against," he said. "He's an assassin, and that was one of those assassin plays right there."
The Cavs are now in the unenviable position of being one game away from elimination while having to win four straight to win the championship. No team in NBA history has successfully emerged to win in the playoffs after trailing 3-0.
Legendary St. Louis Cardinals second baseman Red Schoendienst died yesterday at 95 years old. His passing was announced to a crowd of 40,109 at Busch Stadium during yesterday's Cardinals vs. Miami Marlins game. The scoreboard tribute that accompanied the announcement inspired a standing ovation from players and crowd alike. MLB.com quotes Cardinals principal owner and CEO William O. DeWitt Jr. on the news:
"Red was one of the greatest Cardinals of all time, and a beloved member of the Cardinals organization for over six decades."
"His influence on this organization cannot be overstated. Red was a great player, a great manager, and a wonderful mentor to countless players, coaches and members of the front office. He was also a fan favorite who connected with millions of Cardinals fans across multiple generations. He will be sorely missed."
Former NFL wide receiver Terrell Owens has said that he won't attend his induction into the Pro Football Hall of Fame, ESPN reports.
"While I am incredibly appreciative of this opportunity, I have made the decision to publicly decline my invitation to attend the induction ceremony in Canton," Owens said.
Owens has been a finalist candidate for induction the last three years, and has been critical of the board of selectors for not inducting him.
"We are disappointed but will respect Terrell's decision not to participate in the enshrinement," Hall of Fame president David Baker said in a statement. "While unprecedented, the Pro Football Hall of Fame, the nearly 5,000 volunteers and the entire community are committed to celebrating the excellence of the Class of 2018 that will kick off the NFL's 99th season."
