TORONTO (AP) — DeMar DeRozan’s big game put the Toronto Raptors in a place they’ve never been before: up 2-0 in a playoff series. DeRozan matched his career playoff-high with 37 points, Jonas Valanciunas had 19 points and 14 rebounds and the Raptors beat the Washington Wizards 130-119 on Tuesday night as Toronto took a 2-0 lead in a playoff series for the first time in franchise history. “I didn’t go out there planning to score 37 points, I went out there to be aggressive,” DeRozan said. Kyle Lowry had 13 points and a career playoff-high 12 assists as Toronto set team playoff records for points in a quarter, a half, and a game. C.J. Miles scored 18, Delon Wright had 11 and Serge Ibaka 10 for the Raptors, who snapped an NBA-worst 10-game losing streak in Game 1s with a 114-106 win on Saturday. DeRozan, whose 37th point came on a friendly roll on a fourth quarter free throw, equalled his total from Game 3 of the second round against Cleveland last … [Read more...] about DeRozan scores 37, Raptors win Game 2, beat Wizards 130-111
Miami open scores
MIAMI — Jason Vargas was back in the Mets’ clubhouse Monday, but the left-hander is not here to prepare for a major league start. The veteran rejoined the team before their series-opener against the Marlins, but he is still over a week away from being able to make his season debut. "He's gonna throw another 'game,' probably with a protective screen," Mickey Callaway said. That would likely be on Thursday, the Mets manager added. "On his normal five days, we're just going to keep him on that normal five days," Callaway said. So the soonest Vargas could return to the rotation on that schedule would be April 17, which is the second game of the Mets' series with the Nationals at Citi Field. Seth Lugo flourishing in new role, bullpen continues to dominate Callaway, however, had indicated that they would "probably" want him to pitch in a minor-league rehab game. They want him to pitch without the protection of a screen in … [Read more...] about Jason Vargas rejoins teammates in Miami, but lefty must show Mets he can field before starting

This article appears courtesy of RotoExperts.com. The 2018 Miami Dolphins will look like a completely different team from the one that took the field in 2017. Ryan Tannehill will be back from injury, taking back the job from Jay Cutler. Gone is Jay Ajayi, and in steps Kenyan Drake and also Frank Gore. Jarvis Landry was dealt to Cleveland, leaving a ton of targets and catches to be had by DeVante Parker and Kenny Stills. This offense was a hard watch at time in 2017, as the inconsistencies from Cutler and the running game killed the momentum of this team each week. Until the emergence on Kenyan Drake late in the season, Jarvis Landry was the only bona-fide … [Read more...] about NFL Draft Fantasy Preview: Miami Dolphins
Seven years ago, filmmaker Tiller Russell was preparing to meet with the former Russian mobster at the center of Miami's craziest true-crime caper of the '90s. And he was hoping — or more like praying — a guard at a prison deep in a Panamanian jungle wouldn't screw him over.The filmmaker had been tipped off by a DEA agent that Ludwig Fainberg, known as "Tarzan," was in the jailhouse. Fainberg had been convicted of helping to orchestrate the sale of a $35 million Soviet submarine to the Cali Cartel in order to transport cocaine from Colombia to the United States and Canada.After communicating with Tarzan, who had a BlackBerry inside the prison, Russell headed to Panama. He had $1,000 to pay off a prison guard — $500 to get him in and $500 to make sure he left the facility unscathed.When the guard let Russell in, he sprinted across the yard where inmates were playing soccer and barreled toward a steel door that looked as of it were pulled straight from Mad Max. As the … [Read more...] about How a Russian Mobster in Miami Sold a Soviet Submarine to Colombian Coke Smugglers
