Westbrook NBA Record

ATLANTA (AP) — Move over “Big O.” Russell Westbrook has set an NBA record with his 182nd triple-double, surpassing the mark set by Oscar Robertson in 1974. The 32-year-old Westbrook is in his 13th season overall and his first with the Washington Wizards. Westbrook has recorded a triple-double in each of Washington’s last five games, three of them before the start of the fourth quarter. He has 36 this season.

Frazier Cut By Bucs

PITTSBURGH (AP) — Two-time All-Star infielder Todd Frazier has been cut by the Pittsburgh Pirates after hitting .086 in 13 games. The team designated him for assignment Monday. The 35-year-old had just three hits in 35 at-bats with no home runs and four RBIs. The Pirates signed Frazier to a minor league contract after he spent last year’s pandemic-shortened season with the Texas Rangers and New York Mets.

Tebow-Meyer Reunion

JACKSONVILLE, Fla. (AP) — Tim Tebow and Urban Meyer are apparently getting back together, this time in the NFL. The NFL Network reports the former Florida star and 2007 Heisman Trophy-winning quarterback is expected to team up with his college coach by signing a one-year contract to play for the Jacksonville Jaguars. This reunion would come with a twist: Tebow is switching to tight end. The 33-year-old Tebow would be returning to the NFL after four years in the New York Mets’ organization.

Johnson Knee Injury

MCKINNEY, Texas (AP) — One week before the PGA Championship, Dustin Johnson is having knee pain. The world’s No. 1 golfer withdrew from the AT&T Byron Nelson on Monday. He cites occasional discomfort in his knee and says his trainers have advised him to stay home and get healthy. Johnson had arthroscopic surgery on his left knee after the 2019 season that caused him to miss three months. Johnson has gone six consecutive tournaments without a top-10 finish.

Pelicans exec fined...Coyotes, Jackets dump coaches

May 10, 2021

NEW YORK (AP) — The NBA has fined New Orleans Pelicans executive David Griffin $50,000 for publicly criticizing officiating and making comments the league considered detrimental. The Pelicans’ executive vice president of basketball operations spoke out strongly about his concerns over the amount of contact NBA referees allow New Orleans forward Zion Williamson to endure. Williamson is out indefinitely with a broken left index finger.

UNDATED (AP) — The Arizona Coyotes and Columbus Blue Jackets will have new head coaches next season. The Coyotes parted ways with Rick Tocchet  and the Blue Jackets did the same with John Tortorella. The Coyotes have made the Stanley Cup playoffs just once in eight seasons, while the Jackets just ended a four-run postseason run.

LOUISVILLE, Ky. (AP) — Medina Spirit’s victory in the Kentucky Derby is in serious jeopardy because of a failed postrace drug test. Hall of Fame trainer Bob Baffert called a news conference to announce that Medina Spirit tested positive for an excessive amount of the steroid betamethasone that is sometimes used to treat pain and inflammation in horses. Churchill Downs immediately suspended Baffert and said Medina Spirit would be disqualified if the drug findings were upheld.

DARLINGTON, S.C. (AP) — Martin Truex Jr. powered his way around Darlington Raceway, sweeping both stages and leading the final 105 laps in Sunday’s victory. Kyle Larson cut into Truex’s often large lead over the final 30 laps and came as close as two car-lengths down the stretch. Truex is the only multi-race winner on the Cup circuit this season.

CHARLOTTE, N.C. (AP) — Rory McIlroy is a winner again after 18 long months. McIlroy closed with a 68 for a one-shot victory in the Wells Fargo Championship, his third win at Quail Hollow. He closed with a bogey that was good enough to beat Abraham Ancer (AN’-sur), who shot a final-round 66.
