The Houston Astros are headed to their second World Series after claiming the American League pennant for the first time, downing the Yankees in the ALCS’s deciding seventh game 4-0 thanks to five shutdown innings from starter Charlie Morton, some well-timed defense, and Lance McCullers Jr. shredding any hopes for a…
Stephen Curry and Kevin Durant finished the game in the locker room as the Warriors took their second loss of the season in a 111-101 loss to the Grizzlies. Curry was ejected for throwing his mouthpiece; it’s unclear what earned Durant the heave-ho, though both ejections came in the final minute of an eight-point…
Thank you for your continued support of Deadspin. Have a good one.
Here’s a totally not-at-all-perfunctory apology from Bobby Portis, for busting up teammate Nikola Mirotic’s face and sending him to the hospital. Feel the emotion!

Certain caveats apply: the Phoenix Suns are incredibly awful; it’s just one game; his 29 points came on 27 shots; etc. Still. Lonzo Ball badly needed a bounce-back performance to wash away the stink of Patrick Beverley’s nether regions, and last night he got a good one, recording 29 points, 11 rebounds, and 9 assists…
In an impromptu airport interview with TMZ Sports, Jemele Hill said that she “deserved a suspension” after putting ESPN “in a bad spot” with her social media behavior, and respects ESPN’s prerogative to do “what they felt was right” in hitting her with a two-week suspension for a series of Donald Trump-related tweets:
Tim McMahon of ESPN is reporting that Chris Paul will miss the next two to four weeks while recovering from a bruised left knee.
