Good news, Roy Halladay fans. The Phillies ace is doing just fine after coming out of last night's game against the Cubs due to heat-related issues. Earth's yellow sun may be what gives Superman his powers, but heat and humidity (or perhaps All-Star festivities?) zapped Halladay of his, at least for a night. Fortunately, Doc reports that he's doing just fine today.
Per Matt Gelb of the Inquirer:
"Once I got back to the hotel, got to sleep, then I felt a lot better," Halladay said.
The sound you hear right now is that of a hotel manager just BURSTING to violate his chain's guest confidentiality pledge. Followed quickly by some Power Station.
Andrew Bogut, we hardly knew ye.
After coming over from Dallas as part of the Nerlens Noel trade, Bogut is already thinking about his next move.
With the Sixers expected to buy out Bogut's contract, the former No. 1 overall pick will look to sign with the Cavaliers, according to ESPN's Tim MacMahon.
The Sixers swapped Noel for Bogut, Justin Anderson and a top-18 protected first-round pick — which will likely turn into two second-round picks — last Thursday.
With LeBron James begging the front office for help, the Cavaliers are also expected to sign Bogut's former Dallas teammate Deron Williams in Monday, according to The Vertical's Shams Charania.
AMHERST, Mass. -- Zach Lewis scored a career-high 37 points, including six three-pointers, and Massachusetts pulled away from La Salle 84-71 on Sunday to snap a three-game losing streak.
Lewis, whose 37-point effort was the best for any player in the Atlantic 10 this season, hit nine of his 16 field goal attempts overall and was a perfect 13-for-13 at the free throw line. Dejon Jarreau added 20 points and four three-ponters for UMass (14-15, 4-12).
Pookie Powell hit five 3-pointers and scored 24 points, and B.J. Johnson added 20 points to lead La Salle (14-13, 8-8).
Both teams shot similar percentages and had similar three-point totals, but the Minutemen finished with a plus-14 advantage at the free throw line.
La Salle remained within striking distance but a 13-4 stretch for UMass midway through the second half pushed its lead to 63-51. The Minutemen kept the Explorers at arm's length the rest of the way.
