The King's court
NBA: LeBron James may have been suffering from a head cold in Wednesday's Game 2, but he didn't seem to let that -- or the Chicago Bulls defense -- get in his way. Behind James' 29 points and Dwyane Wade's 24, the Miami Heat put away the Chicago Bulls 85-75 to even up the Eastern Conference finals at one game apiece. James and Wade were the two most dominant players on the court, but a third member of the Heat made a surprising impact on the game. Udonis Haslem came off the bench to score 13, helping Miami beat the Bulls for the first time this season. The game wasn't a complete cakewalk for the Heat, who blew an 11-point lead, but dominant play late in the fourth quarter helped Miami close out the game and tie up the series.
NHL: The Vancouver Canucks walloped the San Jose Sharks 7-3 to take a 2-0 Western Conference finals series lead. There was one bright spot for the Sharks on Wednesday night -- Logan Couture. The rookie knocked in his seventh goal of the playoffs, tying a record for goals scored by a rookie in one postseason. The series now heads to San Jose for the next two games.
MLB: In a game that took so long to complete it even included a 14th-inning stretch, the New York Yankees beat the Baltimore Orioles 4-1. The game needed 15 innings to determine a winner and wrapped up a mere 4 hours, 56 minutes after it began. It was the longest game of the season for both teams. Bartolo Colon pitched eight innings of lights-out baseball for the Yankees, allowing only three hits. However, the typically reliable Mariano Rivera came in and blew New York's one-run lead in the ninth, forcing the extra (six) innings. Wednesday marked Rivera's third blown save in 16 tries.
