Sloppy second period dooms Sharks in loss to Los Angeles Kings

SAN JOSE – This was supposed to be the week that the Sharks were going to take advantage of a forgiving schedule and make a strong push for a playoff spot in the West Division. It didn’t work out that way. The Sharks allowed three unanswered goals in the second period and lost 4-2 to the Los Angeles Kings on Saturday at SAP Center, closing out a week in which they managed just one win in three games against the West Division’s seventh and eighth place teams. The Sharks began the week with a 5-1 loss to the last place Anaheim Ducks before rebounding to beat the Kings 5-2 on Friday. With Saturday’s loss, the Sharks (18-18-4) are now four points back of the St. Louis Blues for fourth place in the West Division, and three points back of the fifth-place Arizona Coyotes.

James Wiseman’s injury clouds Warriors’ bounce-back win over Rockets

When James Wiseman’s right knee buckled and he tumbled to the floor during the second quarter of Saturday night’s 125-109 win over the Houston Rockets at Chase Center, what should have been a night headlined by a feel-good win turned into another tough break for the Warriors and their prized rookie center. The injury occurred when Wiseman landed awkwardly after Rockets forward Kenyon Martin Jr. blocked his dunk attempt less than a minute into the second quarter. Wiseman grabbed his right knee in pain and headed to the locker room with the team’s director of sports medicine and performance, Dr. Rick Celebrini. Shortly after, he was ruled out for the remainder of the game with six points on 3-for-5 shooting and one rebound in six minutes. Wiseman, 20, will undergo an MRI either Saturday nigh

SNL Embarrasses Matt Gaetz After Venmo Revelations

For the second week and row, Rep. Matt Gaetz (R-FL) was target number one on Saturday Night Live’s “Weekend Update.” And this time, anchor Colin Jost didn’t even bother to acknowledge how much he looks like the scandal-plagued congressman. “Well, our favorite Florida congressman Matt Gaetz is back in the news, but this time it’s good!” Jost began. “I’m kidding, it’s still the sex stuff.” From there, Jost moved straight into the explosive Daily Beast report revealing that Gaetz sent $900 to an accused sex trafficker, who then made payments in that exact amount to three different young women, claiming that it was for “tuition” and “school.” at The Daily Beast. ...read more Source:: The Daily Beast...

Lakers stun Brooklyn Nets, get defensive in shorthanded win

Say hello to the new guys. Before Thursday, Andre Drummond hadn’t played one full game as a Laker. It will be days still before Ben McLemore steps foot inside the team’s practice facility. But both were essential pieces as the Lakers (33-20) — short of their top four scorers this season — stunned the Eastern Conference-leading Brooklyn Nets, 126-101, in their own building. Drummond had a team-best 20 points and 11 rebounds hustling in the paint, while McLemore dazzled with five straight field goals in the second half on his way to 17 points. It was dramatic considering who wasn’t available: LeBron James, Anthony Davis, Kyle Kuzma, Marc Gasol and Wesley Matthews. But the victory may have taught the Lakers more about themselves than any other this season. “I learned a lot from today’s game,

Prep football: De La Salle closes in on perfect spring season

They had to scramble Friday, unsure that California would be cleared to play because of COVID-19 protocols.

More Black Americans open to COVID vaccines after outreach efforts

By RUSS BYNUM and ANNIE MA Like others in her family, Mattie Pringle had doubts about taking the coronavirus vaccine. The 57-year-old Black woman from Myrtle Beach, South Carolina, feared that her high blood pressure and diabetes might heighten her chances of a severe reaction to the shot. The speedy development and approval of the vaccines also fed her skepticism. Then a member of Pringle’s church, a local NAACP leader who has led a vaccination campaign targeting Black residents, urged her to reconsider. He shared a news story about Kizzmekia Corbett, a Black government scientist who played a key role in developing the Moderna vaccine. “That’s what made me change my mind,” said Pringle, who finally agreed to an appointment to get her first coronavirus shot Thursday. “I had to pray about i
