Lakers dominate Celtics to force Game 7 on Thursday

compiled from staff and wire reports

With First Lady Michelle Obama was on hand watching the game from a luxury box in the Staples Center and it might’ve inspired the Lakers.

Faced with elimination for the first time during the 2010 playoffs, the Los Angeles Lakers took matters into their own hands.

Kobe Bryant scored 26 points, Pau Gasol added 17 points and 13 rebounds, and the Lakers held Boston to the second lowest-scoring performance in NBA finals history in an 89-67 victory in Game 6, setting up a winner-take-all Game 7 in Los Angeles.

Ron Artest added 15 points for the Lakers, who got their backs off the wall with a dazzling first half and a strong finish built around defense that suffocated Boston to 33 percent shooting. Only Utah’s 54-point performance against Chicago in 1998 was worse.

Paul Pierce led the Celtics with 13 points and Kevin Garnett added 12, but their offense was mostly held to jumbled, clogged-up and stand-around-and-watch as point guard Rajon Rondo had nowhere to go with the ball.

Boise State leaves WAC for Mountain West Conference

compiled from staff and wire reports

Late last week, Boise State accepted an invitation to join the Mountain West Conference as the two-time Fiesta Bowl winner seeks a chance to play into more lucrative bowl games.

Boise State, currently a member of the Western Athletic Conference, would become the 10th member of the Mountain West Conference. The move will be effective July 1, 2011.

As Boise state aims to secure a clearer path to Bowl Championship Series games worth millions, Mountain West commissioner Craig Thompson said his league was looking to add a football program that could help with national exposure and prime-time television exposure. The league is trying to make a case to become the seventh college football conference awarded an automatic bid to the BCS.

In its two BCS bowl appearances thus far, Boise State upset Oklahoma in the 2007 Fiesta Bowl in overtime, 43-42 and beat TCU, a Mountain West member, in the January 2009 Fiesta Bowl.

Boise state has simply dominated the WAC, compiling a 49-4 record and winning three Western Athletic Conference titles in four years under Broncos coach Chris Peterson.

Boise State athletic director Glen Bleymaier said as far as travel time, the Mountain West made sense for his school. In the WAC, the Broncos travel to Hawaii and Louisiana.

The Mountain West Conference is more concentrated as Boise State joins the Air Force Academy, Brigham Young, Colorado State, New Mexico, San Diego State, TCU, UNLV, Utah and Wyoming.

The Mountain West Conference has a television package with CBS Sports and VERSUS which is 10 years and $120 million.

New York Mets come back from 4-1 deficit, nips Tribe 7-6

compiled from staff and wire reports

Jose Reyes ran through a stop sign from third base coach Chip Hale, running around him to score from second base on an infield single to give Johan Santana and the New York Mets to a 7-6 win over a misktake-prone Indians team Tuesday night.

The lefthanded Santana (5-3), won for the first time in four starts. He gave up four runs and seven hits over seven innings and struck out only one, but earned his first win since beating the New York Yankees in another interleague game on May 23.

Santana used to dominate Cleveland early in his career while with the Minnesota Twins, but went 0-5 against them in his final year in the American League in 2007 before being dealt to New York.

The two-time AL Cy Young winner is 8-7 against the Indians and beat them for the first time since august 15, 2006.

Francisco Rodriguez worked the ninth for his 14th save in17 chances despite giving up a two-ut, two-run pinch-hit homer to Shelley Duncan.

The Mets overcame a 4-1 deficit with a five-run fifth off Justin Masterson (2-6), topped off  by Ike Davis’ two-run home run.

New York has won 16 of their last 21 games.

Tom Izzo says no to Cavaliers; James’ future primary reason

compiled from staff and wire reports

The Cleveland Cavaliers are left with Plan B whether it be Byron Scott, Kelvin Sampson or Mike Woodson.

Plan B comes into play because Michigan State head basketball coach Tom Izzo turned down a chance to double his salary and possibly coach LeBron James in the NBA, choosing to stick with the Spartans to chase NCAA championships.

Izzo told members of the media at a Tuesday press conference that being unable to speak with James played a part in his life and career-altering decision.

For the past week and a half, Izzo has been trying to decide whether to leave the university that has been his home since 1983 and jump to the NBA to perhaps make $6 million dollars, a raise of $3 million that he’s being paid now and potentially coach one of the best basketball players in the world, LeBron James.

Cavaliers owner Dan Gilbert was persistent in trying to lure Tom Izzo to Cleveland. Sources have said that Gilbert was going to give Izzo a five-year $30-million contract but Izzo has said he had no contract offer and they only talked about parameters.

This past season, Izzo led Michigan State to the Final Four for the sixth time in 12 years. Only the late John Wooden of UCLA and Duke’s Mike Krzyzewski also have accomplished the feat.

Coach Izzo has a chance to get back to the Final Four once again as he only loses Raymar Morgan out of his top five players.
