Warriors’ Steph Curry practices swing in hotel, leaves room in shambles


Stephen Curry has never been shy about professing his love for golf.

On Thursday, the Warriors All-Star posted visual evidence of that love — and the remnants of how it destroyed his hotel room with Golden State in the midst of a three-game road Basketball Jerseys Cheap
trip.

Last year, Curry played the Web.com Tour’s Ellie Mae Classic on a sponsor’s invite and posted respectable back-to-back rounds of 4-over 74. He finished ahead of four players in the 156-man field.

“Our effort from the beginning wasn’t where we needed it to be,” Howard said. “They came out and hit some big shots and they led the whole game.”

Hornets: Entered the game on their longest winning streak since winning seven straight in March of 2016. … Charlotte’s last four wins have all been by 15 points or more, including Tuesday night’s 118-103 home victory over Chicago. … Walker scored 11 of Charlotte’s first 13 points. … Frank Kaminsky scored 16 points, Michael Carter-Williams scored 14 and Jeremy Lamb added 10 points for the Hornets.

Celtics: Improved to 32-8 when scoring 100 points or more this season. … Boston led 37-31 after the first quarter and out-rebounded the Hornets 14-7 in the opening period. … F Daniel Theis was out with a sore right hamstring. … Marcus Morris scored 15 and Marcus Smart had 10 points.

Gallinari, in his first season with the Clippers after spending his previous nine NBA seasons in New York and Denver, has had an injury-plagued season. He has played in only 19 games, missing chunks of time earlier in the season due to two separate glute injuries.

The Clippers were 32-28 and just outside of the top eight in the Western Conference entering Friday’s game against the New York Knicks. Injuries to Gallinari and trade acquisition Avery Bradley (week-to-week with a groin/hernia injury) have just been the latest complication for Rivers, who has had to start an NBA-high 29 unique lineups.

“The problem is right now, how many games do we have left? With 22 games Cheap Authentic Hockey Jerseys left, and we’re trying to get into the playoffs, not having [Gallinari] and Avery, it’s tough,” Rivers said. “But no one is going to feel sorry for us. I tell our guys that every single day. In public, I’ve said that every single game. And you just have to find a way.”

Complicating matters further is the fact that the Clippers’ two-way contract players have been starting. C.J. Williams started in place of Gallinari on Friday, while Tyrone Wallace has served as a starter since the All-Star break ended. But Wallace’s 45 days are up, and Williams’ will be up after the Knicks game.

Ortiz’s name was revealed in a 2009 New York Times report that cited 104 players for failed drug tests in 2003.


There was no love lost in a particularly tense interleague affair between the Blue Jays and Braves on Wednesday that included a Jose Bautista bat flip, one of two incidents that cleared the benches in an 8-4 Atlanta win.

Ortiz’s name was revealed in a 2009 New York Times report that cited 104 players for failed drug tests in 2003. Only a select number were named, and Ortiz was one.

During a Friday interview with Boston radio station WEEI, the retired Red Sox slugger revealed he believes Boston’s longtime AL East rival is at least partially to blame.

What was the reason for them to come out with something like that? Ortiz said about his name becoming public. The only thing that I can think of, to be honest with you, a lot of big guys from the Yankees were being caught. And no one from Boston. So, who was the big guy in Boston? It was me.

He later specified he believes it was suspicious a newspaper Cheap Authentic MLB Jerseys out of New York would cite a Boston player.

O’Flaherty, of course, was alluding to Bautista’s brush-up Basketball Jerseys Cheap with the Rangers’ Rougned Odor, which celebrated its one-year anniversary Monday. That ordeal was the byproduct of Bautista’s most infamous bat flip, during the 2015 ALDS between Texas and Toronto.

Bautista, for his part, chalked the latest incident up to competitive juices that came out in the wrong moment and seemed to agree that his celebration was done in poor taste.

It was definitely not something that was fitting for the moment, he said.
