Irving fakes Crowder, sets playoff career high in Game 4 win

The win for the Cleveland Cavaliers was very much in the bag, but to pour salt in the Boston Celtics‘ wounds, Kyrie Irving elected to get flashy late in the fourth quarter.

Irving teased a behind-the-back pass to Kevin Love in the corner, faking out Jae Crowder in the process.

This gave the All-Star guard a clear path to the basket for the cheeky left-handed layup.

Irving finished with a playoff career-high 42 points, breaking his old mark of 41 set in Game 5 of last year's NBA Finals against the Golden State Warriors. He connected on 15-of-22 from the field, 4-of-7 from deep, and 8-of-9 from the charity stripe in 41 minutes of action.

Cleveland took Game 4 Tuesday night, 112-99, and can send the Celtics packing from this year’s playoffs at the TD Garden Thursday.

Watch: Trout smashes HR in 4th straight game to set new career high

It's almost surprising at this point whenever Mike Trout accomplishes something incredible that he hasn't already done before.

But he added another impressive first to his career accolades on Monday against the Chicago White Sox, hitting a home run in his fourth consecutive game by going back to back with Los Angeles Angels teammate Kole Calhoun. It's now the longest home run streak of Trout's seven-year career.

Even more amazing – but perhaps not unforeseen, considering Trout's lofty standards – is that all four of his homers during his current tear have had exit velocities above 100 mph and traveled further than 400 feet.

This all comes in a season where he's already become the third player in league history to reach 50 wins above replacement (WAR) by the age of 25, as well as the youngest player with both 150 home runs and 150 stolen bases.

Thanks to Monday's home run, which was his 12th of the season, Trout is now batting .352/.447/.752 with 27 RBIs.

SMH: High School Recalls Yearbook After Caucasian Buffoon Writes “Build That Wall” As Senior Quote

High School Recalls Yearbooks Over “Build That Wall” Quote

A high school in North Carolina (go figure) is making headlines after a seemingly xenophobic quote made it to senior yearbooks . Somehow the girl thought it was ok to use “build that wall” as a senior quote, referring to Trumps immigration wall he wants us to pay for to keep “bad” Mexican immigrants away.

Race aside, the politics behind the quote stirred hundreds of feathers. One facebook user posted the quote, raising awareness to friends about it.

So Richmond county school system allowed this to be printed in their 2017 year book. I already knew this city was racist. Get a court date you’ll find out. This doesn’t surprise me at all.

Richmond country schools have since confiscated the year books according to a statement on Facebook.

Earlier this week, it was discovered by school administration that Richmond Early College yearbooks had errors and inappropriate comments.

The principal immediately collected the distributed yearbooks.

We regret that this incident has occurred and are currently working with the yearbook’s publisher to make corrections.

As a district, we do not and will not tolerate inappropriate conduct toward any of our students.

In each situation, our goal is to provide for the well-being of all of our students and prevent recurrences of inappropriate conduct.

Wizards’ Brooks: High elbows precipitated Oubre-Olynyk fight

Washington Wizards head coach Scott Brooks had a pretty simple explanation for why Kelly Oubre snapped at Kelly Olynyk in Game 3.

Brooks didn’t condone Oubre’s actions and stressed the need for his team to restrain its emotions. But in so many words he said Olynyk had it coming.

“One, I think we have to control our emotions. We can’t respond that way. But when you get hit in the head a few times … if you keep getting hit on the head you might respond that way and I think that’s what (Oubre) did,” Brooks told reporters after Game 3.

Olynyk, who's something of a habitual line-stepper when it comes to physical play, caught Oubre with a hard screen in which his right elbow did come up near the head. Oubre responded with a wild charge while Olynyk protested the offensive foul call to a baseline official.

“I’m not saying that was the right thing to do,” Brooks added. “We have to focus on playing basketball. We can’t control what they’re to do.”

Oubre was one of three players ejected Thursday to go along with seven technical fouls that were dished out between the two teams.
