    MIAMI (AP) — The focus is on the matchup between Patrick Mahomes and Tua Tagovailoa, even though there’s no debating the Kansas City Chiefs have the better quarterback. The Miami Dolphins might have the superior defense, however, which lends intrigue to Sunday’s game against the reigning Super Bowl champions. The Dolphins (8-4) have allowed the second-fewest points in the NFL, and wins in seven of the past eight games have vaulted them into contention for their first playoff berth in four years. But they’re stepping up in class against Mahomes and the high-scoring Chiefs (11-1), who have already clinched a postseason spot by winning their past seven games. “I wish we could have 14 defenders,” Miami coach Brian Flores said. Sometimes it seems as though the Dolphins do. Flores’ blitz-loving, ball-hawking scheme has produced at least one takeaway in 18 consecutive games, the longest such streak in the NFL, and...

    Getty LeBron James of the Lakers takes a hit from Miami Heat forward Jae Crowder There were plenty of moments during Tuesday night’s Game 4 of the NBA Finals in which the tenor of the action got a little heated. Little wonder—the Miami Heat and Los Angeles Lakers have been battling for a week now, the two teams trying to make this whole three-month NBA bubble experiment worthwhile with a championship. But at almost every turn, it was Miami forward Jae Crowder who was at the center of the tension, and LeBron James at the receiving end. That led some to speculate whether Crowder was still holding over some bitterness toward James for having him traded from an NBA Finals contender in Cleveland in 2018 to Utah, where Crowder played for parts of two seasons. Crowder, who was traded from Memphis to Miami this year ahead of the...

    The Foundation for New Education Initiatives, created by Miami Dade Public Schools Superintendent Alberto Carvalho, is under investigation by the inspector general’s office, regarding a $ 1.57 million donation from the company that provided the district the online K12 platform that failed during the first weeks of starting classes. Marta Pérez, a member of the School Board, says that “the reason is because this was the platform that was going to be put on, the teachers were having many problems and therefore they worked over the weekend and that’s why they said we want to give them 100 dollars people who worked so hard ”.

    LAKE BUENA VISTA, Fla. (AP) — The secret can be told now: When the NBA was shut down for a few months because of the coronavirus pandemic, when most players in the league didn’t have a place to play because team facilities were closed as a precaution, Miami guard Tyler Herro was in a gym all the time. A couple of hours in the morning. A couple more at night. Almost every day. “I don’t think the Heat even know I did this,” Herro told The Associated Press. Given the way he’s played since the season resumed, the Heat probably could have suspected he used his downtime wisely. No rookie in these playoffs is averaging more points (14.7), 3-pointers (2.3), assists (3.3) and minutes (32.3) per game than Herro, the baby-faced 20-year-old who’ll make his Eastern Conference finals debut when Miami opens its series against the Boston Celtics on Tuesday...
