Last night, I knew how it was going to end before Game 6 even began. I’m from northeast Ohio.
If you were fortunate enough to be in attendance at Barclays Center for last evening's Clippers-Nets matchup, you witnessed history. The two teams combined to miss 27 of their 43 free throws, which set an all-time NBA record for failure at the charity stripe. We're pulling a deep cut for this one, with help from …
Upon reflection, the most embarrassing thing the New York Jets did yesterday was try to run the world's least effective trick play on a third-quarter kickoff return. I realize that's a bold statement to make, seeing as how this game also included Geno Smith turning in one of the worst quarterbacking performances ever
Yusmeiro Petit, of whom you've never heard, ensured his continued obscurity by missing out on a perfect game when on the final out he allowed a hit to the Diamondbacks' Eric Chavez on a 3-2 count.
