NBA: It looked as if Dirk Nowitzki and Dallas were poised for another one of their mind-boggling comeback victories Sunday after the Mavericks fought their way out of a 13-point third-quarter deficit to tie the game with less than two minutes remaining. However, the Miami Heat were able to hold on for an 88-86 victory with some help from Chris Bosh, who hit the go-ahead jumper in the final minute. The Heat now hold a 2-1 lead in the NBA Finals and are two games away from winning it all.
John Kuester is out as coach of the Detroit Pistons. He was fired Sunday, just four days after Tom Gores completed an agreement to purchase the team from Karen Davidson. Kuester had a measly 57-107 record during his two seasons with the Pistons.
NHL: If fans weren't parked on the couch by the time overtime started Saturday, chances are they probably missed the winning goal. Alex Burrows put a dagger into the hearts of Boston Bruins fans, scoring just 11 seconds into the extra period to give the Vancouver Canucks a 3-2 victory and a 2-0 lead in the Stanley Cup finals. To the relief of Bruins fans, the series now heads back to Boston for the next two games.
French Open: Top-seeded Rafael Nadal tied Bjorn Borg's record of six French Open titles by defeating No. 3 seed Roger Federer on Sunday in the men's finals at Roland Garros. Nadal and Federer have played in 13 major finals, which is seven more than any other pair in men's tennis history.
On the women's side, sixth-seeded Li Na defeated defending champion Francesca Schiavone on Saturday to win the French Open, becoming the first Chinese player, man or woman, to win a Grand Slam singles title.
