This was not a road trip that soured at the finish, with Saturday night’s 123-115 loss to the Milwaukee Bucks closing out a weeklong 1-3 excursion. This was a Miami Heat trip that soured at the start, with last Sunday’s loss to the Charlotte Hornets upping the ante and the Heat able to meet the remaining challenges only in the victory over the Cleveland Cavaliers. And after Thursday’s loss to the New York Knicks, the ante only became more severe, with Giannis Antetokounmpo in the Bucks’ lineup for the first time in the teams’ three meetings. A triple-double later from Antetokounmpo, and the He ..read more

Jalen Brunson put his team on his back on Saturday night. However, his performance is merely a footnote in their 134-128 loss to the Clippers. Nic Batum drilled a three-pointer at the buzzer to tie the game and send it to overtime where the Knicks could not capitalize on their valiant effort. Brunson racked up 41 points on an incredibly efficient 14-of-19 from the field and led his team from down 15 — which reached as high as 17 — entering the final period even garnering a three-point lead with seconds to go in the fourth quarter. Paul George (30 points) and Kawhi Leonard (35 points) combined ..read more

Nets come back from down 25 to beat Wizards in the aftermath Kyrie Irving’s trade request
Boston Herald

What was supposed to be a blowout victory for the Washington Wizards became a come-from-behind win for the Nets on Saturday. The Nets entered Saturday embroiled in yet another Kyrie Irving controversy, this time the star guard getting fed up and requesting a trade over the lack of a fully-guaranteed contract extension during a breakout stretch in Brooklyn. The Nets were already without Kevin Durant (MCL sprain), Ben Simmons (left knee soreness) and T.J. Warren (left shin contusion) before Irving reported “right calf soreness” Saturday morning — code for “no contract, no play.” He skipped the t ..read more

Woburn Mayor Scott Galvin directed the teachers union to pay $250,000 to the city as reimbursement for their week-long strike, which both sides described as a “sticking point” to hammering out an agreement. Galvin is seeking the payment as part of a return-to-work agreement, which he said guarantees that teachers “won’t face any discipline for participating in the illegal strike” and is the last step in negotiations. “The important part is the city had costs for the strike, and those costs were in the area of $250,000,” Galvin told the Herald Saturday. “They’re not meant to be punitive, but th ..read more

Yes, it was that cold. As the temperature plummeted to a bone-chilling -10 degrees in Boston Friday night, the coldest the city’s been in more than half a century, the region tacked on weather records and dealt with minor fires, power outages and plenty of burst pipes. Most importantly, in Boston, the city rallied to keep people out of the cold. Hundreds of people who needed a space to stay safe and warm flocked to Pine Street Inn. At least 60 people slept on beds and mats in the lobbies of Pine Street’s four shelters as its roughly 460 beds had been taken. The agency had two to three extra ou ..read more

Authoritative doesn’t begin to describe the comprehensive Hollywood history Bruce Davis unfolds in ‘The Academy and the Award’ (Brandeis University Press, $40).  Not the usual breezy picture book, this is a meticulously researched and eye-opening account by a veteran member of The Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences which, of course, hands out the Oscars every year.  As the Academy nears its first century, surprisingly this is only the first truly in-depth history. AMPAS was founded by the studio heads to buttress and better the notion that films were an art and should be val ..read more
