    Cambage scores WNBA-record 53 points
    July 17, 2018



    DALLAS (AP) Elizabeth Cambage scored 53 points to set a WNBA record Tuesday, leading the Dallas Wings to a 104-87 victory over the New York Liberty.


    The 6-foot-8 Australian reached 50 points on a three-point play with 2:19 remaining and broke Riquna Williams' WNBA record of 51 points, set Sept. 8, 2013, on an open 3-pointer from the top of the key.


    ''It's pretty big,'' Cambage said. ''I've had big numbers in China, I've had big numbers in Australia, and I've heard a lot of people say I could never have big numbers here in the WNBA. So I guess this game is for y'all.''


    Cambage was 17 of 22 from the field with 10 rebounds and five blocks for her ninth double-double of the season. She made 15 of 16 free throws and outscored the Liberty's starting lineup by 10 points.


    Glory Johnson and Allisha Gray each added 13 points for Dallas (13-9), which won its first home game against New York since 2016.


    Dallas coach Fred Williams was ejected with 1:44 remaining in the third quarter. New York took its first lead, 70-69, on the next possession, but Dallas opened the fourth quarter on a 12-3 run and cruised from there.


    Kia Nurse scored 25 points, including four 3-pointers, and Tina Charles added 19 for New York. The Liberty (7-15) had won their previous two games.


    Cambage had 28 points in the first half to send the Wings to a 57-44 lead. She added five points in the third quarter and broke her previous high of 37 points on a three-point play with 7:29 remaining. She finished 4 of 5 from 3-point range.


    Cambage returned to the Dallas franchise after sitting out the past four years. She was drafted by Tulsa with the second pick in 2011 behind Maya Moore.


    Moore is third in the WNBA for most points in a game, scoring 48 in a double-overtime game in 2014. Phoenix's Diana Taurasi had 47 points in a three-OT game in 2006.

    Hayes sinks half-court shot at buzzer in Dream's win
    July 17, 2018



    UNCASVILLE, Conn. (AP) Tiffany Hayes sank a shot from beyond halfcourt at the buzzer to help the Atlanta Dream win their fifth straight game with an 86-83 victory over the Connecticut Sun on Tuesday night.


    Connecticut's Alyssa Thomas made two free throws with 31.9 seconds remaining to tie it at 83. After an Atlanta miss and a tie-up, Connecticut inbounded it with 10.9 seconds left, but Hayes intercepted a pass in the corner, took two dribbles and swished the long winner .


    Angel McCoughtry scored 24 points off the bench for Atlanta (13-9). Hayes finished with 18 points and Elizabeth Williams added 16.


    Brittney Sykes hit a wide open 3-pointer to pull Atlanta to 79-75 and another miscue on the Sun's next possession led to McCoughtry's fast-break layup. McCoughtry tied it at 81 on a contested 3-pointer and Williams gave Atlanta its first lead since 2-0 on the Dream's next possession.


    Jonquel Jones scored 10 of her 19 points in the second quarter for Connecticut (12-11). Rachel Banham added 15 points with three 3-pointers.

    Delle Donne, Parker to captain WNBA All-Star Game
    July 17, 2018



    NEW YORK (AP) Elena Delle Donne and Candace Parker will captain the WNBA All-Star teams.


    Maya Moore was the top vote-getter, but told the league she was unable to perform the captain duties giving Parker the chance as the third-place finisher in the voting done by fans, players, coaches and the media.


    ''I'm honored to be named captain and am excited to be joined by two of my teammates,'' Parker said. ''It should be fun and it's good to see the league mixing it up with the captain format.''


    Parker and Delle Donne will draft players from the 20 other All-Stars who were announced Tuesday.


    ''I'm glad that Maya turned down her role so that I can have the first pick,'' Delle Donne said laughing in a phone interview with the AP. ''I've got everyone's name written down and their position. You can't pick wrong as you have really great players out there.''


    Delle Donne wouldn't say who she's picking first, but did say that she feels loyalty to Mystics teammate Kristi Toliver to draft her.


    ''The one pick I will give away is that she will be on my team,'' she said.


    Parker has two Sparks teammates in the pool with Nneka Ogwumike and Chelsea Gray.


    Other players that Delle Donne and Parker can choose from include Sue Bird, who made a record 11th All-Star Game breaking a tie with Tamika Catchings for most all-time.


    ''Seventeen years ago, if you told me I'd be setting a new record with 11 All-Star appearances, I would have called you crazy,'' Bird said. ''It's a testament to my teammates and coaches throughout the years, and an absolute honor given all of the greats who have played in this league.''


    Rookie A'ja Wilson will play in her first All-Star contest as well as Jewell Loyd. Dallas Wings center Liz Cambage will play in her second one. Earlier on Tuesday, she broke the WNBA single-game scoring record when she had 53 points against New York.


    ''That was incredible, it bumped her up the list for sure,'' Delle Donne said.


    The WNBA took conference affiliation out of the midseason game and 16 of the 22 All-Stars were from the Western Conference. That group includes Diana Taurasi, Sylvia Fowles and Seimone Augustus. Fowles, Moore and Augustus will get a chance to play in front of their home fans as the All-Star Game is in Minnesota on July 28.


    ''It's going to be great,'' Phoenix coach Sandy Brondello said. ''There's so much talent out there, it's like coaching a USA Basketball team. It's going to be nice to coach some players that normally I don't get the chance to.''


    Brondello, who will coach Australia in the women's basketball world cup in September, will be teamed with Parker.


    Delle Donne's team will be led by Seattle coach Dan Hughes, who has guided the Storm to the league's best record.


    The two captains will draft their teams on Wednesday. The two teams will be revealed on Thursday night. The draft won't be televised, which Delle Donne wasn't completely upset about.


    ''I'd like to get one year under my belt,'' she said. ''Wouldn't want to be put on blast with selections.''


    Fans accounted for 40 percent of the vote, while current players, current head coaches and a media panel accounted for 20 percent each. Players were not allowed to vote for their teammates. Head coaches could not vote for players on their own team.


    Moore was the leading vote-getter among fans (47,620). She was followed by Delle Donne (42,171), Parker (38,575), Bird (37,098) and Taurasi (35,687). Fans cast 44 percent more votes than they did last year (873,437 vs. 604,680).


    Wilson was the only rookie to make the All-Star list and every team has at least one player in the game except for last-place Indiana.

    Bentley back to Atlanta, happy for change
    July 17, 2018



    NEW YORK (AP) Alex Bentley is happy to be back in familiar surroundings following her surprising trade to Atlanta from Connecticut last week.


    The former All-Star guard had spent the past five seasons with the Sun after getting traded there from Atlanta following her rookie season.


    She'll get a chance to play against her former team on Tuesday night when the Dream visit the Sun. One story line to watch will be the interaction between Bentley and former teammate Courtney Williams.


    A person familiar with the situation says the players had a physical altercation on the bus in Seattle at the beginning of the month. The person spoke to The Associated Press on condition of anonymity because the team has not publicly discussed the incident.


    The Sun said Williams missed the Sun's west coast trip for personal reasons. She returned to the Connecticut lineup after Bentley was traded on July 9.


    Bentley declined to comment on the incident, but said she is looking forward to her return to Connecticut.


    ''I have wonderful memories in Connecticut and great friends there,'' Bentley said in a phone interview. ''I'm grateful for my time there. But I'm happy for a chance to go back where I started my career and play for a coach I know well.''


    Atlanta's coach Nicki Collen was an assistant with Connecticut before getting the Dream's head job this season. Bentley is playing a similar role in Atlanta as a vital player off the bench.


    ''I'm excited for the chance to help Atlanta out,'' Bentley said.


    The Dream have won all three of their games since acquiring Bentley and moved up to sixth in Tuesday's AP power poll:


    POWER POLL: A look at this week's WNBA poll:


    1. Seattle (16-6): Storm have created a little space between themselves and the rest of the league. They have a big road trip looming heading into the All-Star break.


    2. Phoenix (15-8): Mercury are still trying to adjust to life without Sancho Lyttle (knee). Phoenix finished off a disappointing four-game road trip with losses in Dallas and Connecticut before beating Indiana.


    3. Los Angeles (14-9): Candace Parker has upped her game and the Sparks seem to have righted their problems. Parker just missed a triple-double in LA's win over Las Vegas on Sunday.


    4. Washington (13-9): Mystics were swept in a home-and-home series with Atlanta, but still look like a contender for top playoff spot.


    5. Dallas (12-9): Wings saw a five-game winning streak end in Seattle, but still are one of the rising teams in the league.


    6. Atlanta (12-9): Finally healthy, the Dream are playing well lately with many offensive threats for coach Nicki Collen.


    7. Connecticut (12-10): Quality wins over Phoenix and Minnesota have set the Sun up for a solid run down the stretch.


    8. Minnesota (12-10): Losses at home to both Indiana and Las Vegas have left the Lynx with lots of questions.


    9. Las Vegas (10-13): Aces are putting on quite a show in their first season in Las Vegas behind the stellar inside-outside combo of A'ja Wilson and Kayla McBride.


    10. New York (7-14): Liberty tied the franchise record for points in a game with 107 against Chicago. Two wins in a row have given the New York a little momentum to make a postseason run.


    11. Chicago (7-15): A three-game skid has left the Sky in danger of missing the postseason again.


    12. Indiana (2-20): Veteran Cappie Pondexter has provided a lift for the Fever since they signed the guard.


    ---


    PLAYER OF THE WEEK:


    Candace Parker averaged 25.3 points, 9 rebounds, 7 assists to help the Sparks go 2-1 this week. Other players receiving votes were Jessica Breland, Kayla McBride and Skylar Diggins-Smith,


    ---


    MILESTONE:


    Elena Delle Donne became the fastest player to reach 3,000 points this week when she did it in her 148th game, a loss to Atlanta on Sunday. The previous record-holders, Diana Taurasi and Seimone Augustus, needed 151 games.


    ---


    GAME OF THE WEEK


    Storm at Sky, Wednesday. Seattle begins a five-game road swing in Chicago. The Storm make stops in Connecticut, Atlanta, Indiana and Phoenix after visiting the Windy City.

    Wednesday’s quiz

    Tuesday’s quiz

    Monday’s quiz
    2003 was the last time two brothers played in the same All-Star Game, when Bret and Aaron Boone both made the All-Star team.




    ***************************




    Wednesday’s List of 13: My favorite sports-related movies


    1) Moneyball— Beginning isn’t very good, the end sucks, but I’m an A’s fan and this movie is about how the 2003 A’s put together a team that won 20 games in a row, made the playoffs.


    If the next ten weeks go really well, could Moneyball 2 be in the works?


    Only really bad thing about this movie is they made skipper Art Howe look like a bad manager, and he was anything but— you don’t win 20 games in a row by accident.


    2) Blue Chips— Nick Nolte is a college basketball coach who used to win a lot; in order to start winning again, he has to decide whether to break the recruiting rules or not.


    Bob Cousy is the AD; Shaquille O’Neal, Penny Hardaway are two of the recruits. Lot of cameos from basketball people; Jerry Tarkanian, Jim Boeheim, Rick Pitino, Dick Vitale.


    3) Invincible— True story about Vince Papale, a 30-year old bartender who tries out for the 1976 Philadelphia Eagles and makes the squad as a special teams player.


    4) Fast Break— Gabe Kaplan manages a New York City deli until he applies for a job as a college basketball coach in Nevada. Bernard King, Michael Warren are two of his players; another one is a girl disguised as a guy.


    5) Any Given Sunday— Al Pacino is a pro football coach whose team is struggling; Cameron Diaz is the owner, Dennis Quaid, Jamie Foxx are two of the QB’s.


    Miami Sharks play against four teams in the movie, all coached by NFL Hall of Famers.


    6) For Love of the Game— Kevin Costner is a star pitcher for the Tigers who is at the end of his career; he has flashbacks throughout his last game.


    Detroit’s manager in this movie is JK Simmons, who is a Tigers fan in real life; New York’s manager is the late Augie Garrido, one of the all-time great college baseball coaches.


    7) Friday Night Lights— Billy Bob Thornton is a high school football coach in west Texas, where they take high school football very seriously.


    8) One on One— Robby Benson is a hotshot high school basketball player who gets recruited by a big-time college team, then finds himself in over his head.


    9) Bull Durham— Costner is a minor league catcher who is brought in to mentor a hot-shot pitching prospect. Robert Wuhl is the pitching coach, Susan Sarandon mentors the prospect off the field.


    10) Draft Day— Costner does lot of sports movies; he is GM of the Cleveland Browns in this one, Denis Leary is the Browns’ coach.


    The year this movie came out, NFL pushed back the draft so the movie could be promoted more, but Radio City Music Hall wasn’t available for the later date, which is why they started moving the draft around the country. Sometimes great ideas happen by accident.


    11) Major League— Bob Uecker should’ve won an Oscar for Best Supporting Actor for his role as Indians’ radio announcer Harry Doyle.


    12) He Got Game— Underrated film about college basketball recruiting; if you saw this movie, you weren’t surprised by the problems Louisville had the last couple years.


    13) Rocky— The original was a true classic; a journeyman boxer gets a chance to fight for the heavyweight title, and makes the most of it. 40 years later, tourists who come to Philadelphia still pose for pictures near the Rocky statue.

    Armadillo: Thursday's six-pack


    — SEC football Media Week ain’t the same without Les Miles.


    — Superstitious much? There are no Gate 13’s in McCarran Airport in Las Vegas.


    — Ole Miss basketball coach Mike White is only 41, but has lived in 14 different states


    — Georgia football coach Kirby Smart was a Finance major in college.


    — Purdue has a QB named Nick Sipe whose uncle is Brian Sipe, the terrific QB for the Browns who also played for the Jacksonville Bulls in the USFL.


    — Last seven years, Ohio St/Northwestern are only two Big 14 football teams that have been plus in turnovers in all seven years.




    **********


    Armadillo: Thursday's List of 13: Doing some thinking out loud…….


    13) San Antonio Spurs traded Kawhi Leonard and Danny Green to Toronto for DeMar DeRozan, Jakob Poeltl and a protected 2019 1st-round pick.


    Over the last five years, the Raptors went 263-147 in the regular season, only 21-30 in playoff games, so they fired their coach and traded their best player. We’ll see how that works out.


    12) I’m thinking managing a major league team now has to be more difficult than it used to be; back when I was a kid, guys like Sparky Anderson, Earl Weaver, Dick Williams were big names who unquestionably ran their teams- that doesn’t exist anymore.


    Front office/analytics types run the show on most teams now; managers with strong personalities don’t get hired as much or don’t keep their jobs— see Joe Girardi.


    Managers, by the very nature of their jobs, dictate the tone of their teams, but they dictate less and less of their team’s tactics and roster management, but they still have to answer to the press, which can’t be a lot of fun.


    11) On July 17, 1963, Braves-Giants played a game in San Francisco, Spahn vs Marichal, two Hall of Fame pitchers.


    Game was scoreless into the 16th inning with both pitchers going whole way, when Willie Mays ended it with a solo-homer off Spahn. Marichal threw 227 pitches and Spahn threw 201.


    If that happened today, both managers would’ve been fired after the game.


    10) One of the coolest nights I’ve spent in Las Vegas was during this week back in 2015, late on a Wednesday night.


    Diamondbacks game in Phoenix went 14 or 15 innings, ran very late; at same time, live coverage from the BBC or some channel in England had live first round coverage of the British Open on, so you could watch live action on TV’s next to each other, one on Wednesday night, the other Thursday morning. It was oddly fun.


    9) All nine people who made the final table at the World Series of Poker made $1M+; the winner got $8.8M, runner-up got $5M— no wonder he was smiling in the pictures afterwards.


    8) They had another poker tournament that ran Sunday-Tuesday, 27 people entered with a buy-in of $1M. Top 5 cashed, the other 22 had to explain to their wives why they blew $1M to play cards for a couple nights.


    Guy who won took home $10M and he was losing for most of the heads-up period.


    7) Golfer Hideki Matsuyama finished in the top-20 in each of the last seven majors and 11 of the last 14.


    6) From gambling expert Bill Krackomberger, talking about the start of legalized sports betting in New Jersey:


    “…….of the $15.4 million wagered, the casinos/state won just under $3.5 million in 16 days. That is a hold percentage of over 22%. In relation, Nevada’s hold for 2017 was 5.1%.”


    KL Wheat reported in from New Jersey Wednesday:


    “…….went to bet Ricky Fowler at 17-1 on board, went to bet 10 seconds later, it was 12-1.” That was at Monmouth— he got 16-1 on Fowler at Borgata.


    5) Back in 1983, Donald Trump could’ve bought the Dallas Cowboys for $50M but passed; now they’re worth $4.8B. Thats billion, with a B.


    4) Of the eight guys in Home Run Derby this year, only Harper/Freeman are making more than $660,000 this season. MLB needs more established stars to do Home Run Derby.


    3) One really cool thing about the derby this year is that the two finalists both had unusual guys throwing to them. Had to be a ton of pressure on these guys to throw hittable pitches.


    Bruce Harper had his dad throwing to him, which is great- Robinson Cano’s dad threw to him a few years ago, and Kyle Schwarber’s buddy threw to him- the graphic actually said under the guy’s name “Kyle’s friend”


    2) Apparently, Juwan Howard holds an NBA record he had 236 different teammates during his long playing career. Vince Carter could break that record this year if he plays; he’s had 228 different teammates in his career.


    1) Imagine being A’s reliever Blake Treinen Tuesday night; run out of Washington last summer, exiled to Oakland because he was having a bad year (5.73 ERA in 37.2 IP).


    Now he has 24 saves for an Oakland team that is a surprise contender in the AL Wild Card race, and he has been awesome. He comes back to Washington a year after they ran him out of town and he is a freakin’ All-Star. That had to be tremendous.
