Putting in some overtime
NBA: The top-seeded Chicago Bulls have lost their last three games; if they plan to advance to the NBA Finals, they need to win their next three. The Miami Heat overcame an early 11-point deficit to beat the Bulls 101-93 in overtime, taking a 3-1 lead in the Eastern Conference finals. LeBron James had 35 points for the Heat. He had back up as Chris Bosh knocked in 22 points, while Dwyane Wade added 14. The silver lining for the Bulls: The series now shifts back to Chicago.
NHL: The fate of a season coming down to a single overtime is drama enough. But two overtimes? Forget it. This was the San Jose Sharks' reality Tuesday night. San Jose fought through three periods of regulation, one full overtime and part of a second before falling to the Vancouver Canucks 3-2 in Game 5 of the Western Conference finals. The Canucks are headed to the Stanley Cup finals for the first time in 17 years.
French Open: John Isner's name has become synonymous with "exceptionally long, show-stopping tennis matches." He beat Nicolas Mahut in a three-day match at Wimbledon last year -- the longest tennis match in history. Isner nearly upset top-seed Rafael Nadal in a four-hour, one-minute match Tuesday. Nadal held off Isner in five sets to advance to the second round and improve to 39-1 at Roland Garros where he is attempting to equal Bjorn Borg's record of six French Open titles.
