Two nights, two big shots late in the 4th by the top two MVP candidates. I'd say they represented both styles but Harden didn't get fouled.

Pineda steals deGrom's spotlight

Mets SP Jacob deGrom 0.93 ERA entering tonight and 18 1/3 scoreless inning streak earned all the attention pregame. But Michael Pineda allowed only 1 run in 7 2/3 innings, compared to deGrom's 6 in 5. The Yanks take the first game 6-1. Box score


CP3 dominating Parker so far

Through 2 games, Chris Paul has been the superior point guard -- and it's not even that close.


Unstoppable force, immovable object

When a series is tied 1-1, the winner of Game 3 takes the series 76 percent of the time. The Clippers have won 8-straight road games. The Spurs have won 15 of their last 16 home games. Live on ESPN/WatchESPN

34-8-4 for Dirk. Win or lose, Mavs fans should savor this performance. You don't know how much more playoff greatness he has left in him.

Tim MacMahon @espn_macmahon

Monta Ellis is clearly hurting. Limping around. Chatted briefly with athletic trainer Casey Smith. Zero chance he comes out of the game.

29 points, 7 rebounds for Dirk Heck of a night for a 36-year-old legend when Mavs desperately needed greatness from him.

James Harden is up to 37 points and 9 assists as the Rockets are outgunning the Mavericks down the stretch. Houston holds a 3-point lead with just under 2 minutes to go. Live on ESPN/WatchESPN

Mavs fans can hate James Harden all they want, but you've got to respect him. 37 points, 8 assists. And it ain't about refs. Only 6 FTs.

Mark Cuban is back!!! Had pointed comments for commish Adam Silver as he walked by again. Ended with, "That's exactly what we talked about."

Mavs offense goes dry

The Dallas Mavericks have only made 1 field goal in the fourth quarter -- a Dirk Nowtizki jumper. That's not going to cut it as the Rockets lead by 9 midway through the final frame. Live on ESPN/WatchESPN


Tim MacMahon @espn_macmahon

Mark Cuban appeared to disagree with that offensive foul on Al-Farouq Aminu and politely shared his opinion with ref Tom Washington.

Porcello pulled

Rick Porcello started off fast, retiring the first six O's batters with five strikeouts, but things came apart later. Porcello gave up 3 ERs in six innings of work and leaves runners on first and second with nobody out. The Red Sox have a 4-3 lead. Follow live
