LeBron James scores 37, struggles from free-throw line in 105-103 overtime loss to Rockets

HOUSTON : LeBron James missed a pair of free throws in the final seconds of overtime and the Cavs lost a thriller 105-103 to the Houston Rockets on Sunday. It capped a miserable day for James from the free-throw line, who finished just 3-for-11 while making 3 of his last 11 shots from the floor during the fourth quarter and overtime. James scored 37 points and James Harden countered with 33 in a memorable battle between two of the contenders to win the Most Valuable Player award. James’ struggles at the line, however, cost the Cavs dearly. His last two misses came with four seconds left...

Portland Trail Blazers vs. Sacramento Kings: Damian Lillard, Robin Lopez Save the Day

Portland's bench dug a huge pothole in the starters' road to success tonight but a superstar and a blue-collar guy brought the Blazers home anyway. Playing the Sacramento Kings without DeMarcus Cousins is like playing the Muppets without any hands up their backsides. No matter how you look at it, it just won't be the same experience. But the Kings still managed to make the Portland Trail Blazers sweat a little this afternoon, taking advantage of stellar guard play, turnovers, and transition hoops to make a game out of what should have been no contest. In the end, though, the Blazers had...
