    Succession stars Matthew Macfadyen and Nicholas Braun tower over EWs digital cover shoot Hertz stock receives downbeat reception on Nasdaq, as it opens below the recent share-offering price © Provided by NBC Sports Ja Morant is getting all the recognition for his amazing plays late in the fourth quarter last night because the Grizzlies beat the Timberwolves in overtime. But it’s worth taking a moment to appreciate Karl-Anthony Towns‘ unbelievable overtime-forcing 3-pointer. In blowing a 16-point fourth quarter lead, Minnesota made only one shot in the final 4:30 of regulation – Towns’ buzzer-beater. The degree of difficulty on that shot, especially because the Grizzlies knew they had to defend only the 3-point arc, was just insane. But the Timberwolves made only one more shot in overtime in a 125-118 defeat. More on the Timberwolves Do not try to sell Anthony Edwards on chunky peanut butter he is team creamy...
    DALLAS (CBSDFW.COM/AP) — Luka Doncic did what new Dallas Mavericks coach Jason Kidd remembers seeing plenty of times a decade ago as the point guard for the team. Dallas fans are getting used to this from the young superstar who took the mantle from fellow European Dirk Nowitzki.

The 22-year-old took the inbound with 11 seconds remaining, dribbled past midcourt toward the left wing and lifted the shot over former teammate Josh Richardson, who was facing the Mavericks for the first time since an offseason trade. “I played with a player like that before here; everybody knows the ball’s going to 41 and he delivers,” Kidd said. “I think everyone knew the ball was going to 77 and he delivered.” Luka finished with 33 points to 32 for fellow All-Star Jayson Tatum, who bounced back from two rough shooting nights...
    Shai Gilgeous-Alexander scored 11 of his 28 points in the fourth quarter, and the Oklahoma City Thunder rallied from a 19-point deficit to beat the Los Angeles Lakers for the second time this season, 107-104 on Thursday night. Kenrich Williams scored nine of his 13 points in the final period for the Thunder, who haven't beaten anybody in their eight games this season except the vaunted Lakers — both times while rallying from enormous deficits, and both times with LeBron James sidelined. James sat out the rematch with an abdominal strain. "We respect their talent, but with that being said, we want to prove ourselves," said Gilgeous-Alexander, who capped his performance with a dazzling 3-pointer from the half-court logo with 1:18 to play. "They’re a team that has a lot of guys that have done a lot of good things, but we want to prove ourselves and compete." Anthony Davis had 29 points and 18 rebounds despite spraining his right thumb near halftime for the Lakers, whose three-game winning streak ended with just their second loss in seven games.

    LEEDS have moved out of the relegation zone after edging out Norwich to win 2-1 at Carrow Road in the crucial six-pointer. All three goals came in a frantic four-minute period during the second half after Brazilian winger Raphina broke the deadlock. 6Leeds winger Raphinha broke the deadlock at Carrow Road with a fine finish into the bottom cornerCredit: PA 6Brazilian forward Raphinha wheels away in delight after scoring against NorwichCredit: Reuters The ex-Rennes ace bamboozled the Canaries defence inside the box before slotting low past Tim Krul in the far corner. But their lead didn't last for long as Irish teenager Andrew Omobamidele equalised two minutes with a clinical header from a corner. It was the 19-year-old defender's first goal in senior football. Leeds quickly restored their lead on the hour mark through Rodrigo who found the back of the net from range, though goalkeeper Tim Krul should have kept out the fizzing effort. The result lifts the Whites above Burnley into 17th in the table, while Norwich remain rooted to the bottom having lost eight out of their...
    ORINDA (KPIX 5) — It’s been two years but the 2019 Halloween night in Orinda, where five people were shot and killed, remains unsolved and families of the victims still have no answers.

    Toxic fandom reared its ugly head Friday night at Citi Field when a fan flashed a green laser pointer into the eyes of Dodger infielder Max Muncy. “With the Mets and Dodgers tied in the top of the ninth inning Friday in front of a season-high 38,395 at Citi Field, a green light flashed onto Max Muncy’s face, halting play for a few minutes,” reported the New York Post. The moment occurred when Muncy stepped up to bat in the ninth inning after missing two pitches against Edwin Diaz and one out left. Stepping into the box, his face turned green. Muncy eventually struck out after umpires discussed among themselves for several minutes. The perpetrator of the incident was not identified and the light was not seen again “Come on, jeez,” Ron Darling said on PIX11 as the light hit Muncy’s face. “That’s just awful.” “We don’t want that happening in a baseball game. Player safety — everyone’s safety — is always our priority,” said Mets manager Luis Rojas after the game. “I thought it might have been the...

Mets broadcaster Ron Darling spotted the laser light. WADE'S 3-RUN HOMER LEADS GIANTS TO FIFTH STRAIGHT WIN "See that green light? Laser pointer coming across? Come on!" Darling said on the air. "Jeez. … That’s just awful." Muncy alerted the umpires after the light was pointed at him, prompting the umpires to confer for several moments, the New York Post reported.
