compiled from staff, wire and NBA news

Cleveland Cavaliers owner Dan Gilbert said it would take 10 days to 2 weeks to access the Cavaliers situation after being eliminated from the playoffs by Boston.

His assessment was to fire coach Mike Brown late Sunday night, ending his five-year tenure with the franchise a little more than week after the team lost in the second round of the playoffs.

The Cavaliers now join a list of teams who are looking for a new head coach: New Orleans, New Jersey, Atlanta Hawks, Los Angeles Clippers and Chicago. Dropping off the list were the Philadelphia 76ers who hired Doug Collins last week.

Brown was expected to be fired after the Cavaliers, who finished with with the NBA’s best record for the second consecutive season, but failed to reach the NBA Finals.

Published reports were saying that the Cavaliers had until midnight on Sunday to fire Brown or pay him his full $4.5 million salary for next season.

Brown had one year remaining on a contract extension he signed after taking the Cavaliers to their first NBA Finals in 2007. His record in five seasons was 314-167 and he guided the team to the postseason in each of his five seasons. The Cavaliers finished this past regular season with an NBA-best 61 wins, but were beaten by Boston in the playoffs second round of the playoffs.

The Florida International Panthers couldn’t overcome a seven-run seventh inning, as FIU fell to the Florida Atlantic Owls, 14-10.

The Panthers took a 2-0 lead in the third inning when Garrett Wittels extended his NCAA leading hit streak to 48 games on the season with an RBI double, putting him in sole possession of 2nd place all-time in Division I baseball history. He is now 10 games shy of Robin Ventura’s mark of 58 set in 1987 while at Oklahoma State.

16 year old Jordan Spieth is in the hunt at Byron Nelson Championship

compiled from staff, wire and PGA news

Jordan Spieth is a kid but he is playing with the big boys on the PGA Tour and he is playing like he’s a seasoned veteran. Not like a high school student, which is what he is.

He has continued to defy all the expectations of everyone, but himself, by shooting a 3-under-67 Saturday to move solidly into contention going into the final round of the Byron Nelson Championship in the Dallas suburb of Irving, Texas.

Spieth’s best round of the tourney left him tied for seventh, six shots behind leader Jason Day. The tournament is shaping up to be a good one despite not having golf’s big name players in the field.

Day shot a 3-under-par 67 Saturday to pull into the lead by himself. He was part of a seven-way tie after the first round, then was a stroke behind after the second round.

compiled from staff, wire and NASCAR news

Kurt Busch is the winner of the 2010 NASCAR All-Star race. Busch had no trouble closing out the victory after several late restarts. He edged out Martin Truex, Jr., who won the preliminary Sprint Showdown to transfer into the main event, by 0.358 seconds.

Joey Logano finished third.

Four-time defending series champion Jimmie Johnson dominated the race, leading 56 of the 100 laps, but was knocked fro the lead by the funny and quirky format. He was leading heading into the 10-minute break that precedes the last segment, which calls for teams to make one lap and return to pit road for a four-tire pit stop.

Johnson came out of the pits third behind Denny Hamlin and Busch and never led again in the race.
