PRO BASKETBALLHOUSTON (AP) Stephen Curry and Golden State turned all those Houston bricks into a road back to the NBA Finals.Needing not only all their firepower but also 27 straight misses by the Rockets during an epic cold streak from 3-point range Authentic Shea Weber Jersey , the Warriors rallied to keep alive their hopes for a repeat.Kevin Durant scored 34 points, Curry sparked another third-quarter turnaround, and the Warriors earned a fourth straight trip to the NBA Finals by beating the Rockets 101-92 in Game 7 of the Western Conference finals on Monday night.The defending champions trailed by as many as 15 in the first half after falling behind 17 in Game 6.Curry, who finished with 27 points, scored 14 of Golden State’s 33 points in the third quarter as Houston’s shooting didn’t just go cold, it froze. The Rockets missed all 14 3-point attempts in that quarter as part of a 1-for-21 second half from long range.The Warriors will host LeBron James and the Cleveland Cavaliers in Game 1 on Thursday night in the fourth straight matchup between the teams.WALTHAM, Mass. (AP) – Celtics general manager Danny Ainge says point guard Kyrie Irving was unable to attend Game 7 of the Eastern Conference finals because he was recovering from nasal surgery.Ainge said on Monday that Irving had a deviated septum. The injury occurred in November when he was hit in the face by teammate Aron Baynes. Irving wore a mask while healing from the facial fracture.Irving has not played since March because of a knee injury. But his absence on the Boston bench was noted when the Celtics played his former team, the Cleveland Cavaliers.Ainge joked: ”I don’t think he wanted to be seen in public and ruin his movie career.”HOCKEYLAS VEGAS (AP) – Commissioner Gary Bettman says an NHL team in Seattle would have the same favorable expansion terms given to the Vegas Golden Knights.Bettman says the league could vote on adding its 32nd franchise in Seattle later this year, although it won’t happen in June. Bettman remains just as amazed by the Golden Knights’ inaugural season as the rest of the sports world as they host the Washington Capitals in the Stanley Cup Final.Bettman and deputy commissioner Bill Daly both confirmed the NHL plans to keep the same rules on the next expansion draft. If it happens within the next two years, as increasingly expected, Vegas won’t have to lose any of its players.SOCCERZURICH (AP) – FIFA’s bid inspectors will hold a meeting in Zurich on Wednesday with the North American and Moroccan candidates hoping to host the 2026 World Cup.Officials from the joint United States-Canada-Mexico team and Morocco are invited to answer questions from a FIFA-appointed panel evaluating their bids ahead of the June 13 vote, FIFA said Monday.No date is set to publish the evaluation reports ahead of the vote by up to 207 FIFA member federations in Moscow.Though voters are not obliged to factor the reports into their choice, FIFA put a more rigorous assessment system in place after criticism of the 2018-2022 World Cup hosting votes in December 2010.CHESTER Victor Mete Jersey , Pa. (AP) – Josh Sargent scored in his American debut, fellow 18-year-old Tim Weah added a goal in his second international match and a young United States team beat Bolivia 3-0 in an exhibition Monday night.Walker Zimmerman put the Americans ahead in the 37th minute and Sargent doubled the lead in the 52nd. Weah, the son of former FIFA Player of the Year and current Liberia president George Weah, scored in the 59th.Weah, born on Feb. 22, 2000, became the fourth-youngest American to score when he displaced Sargent, who was born two days earlier. Sargent’s goal was particularly memorable – with his back to the goal, he intercepted a pass over his head from the goalkeeper, played the ball to himself and put it in the net with a strong right-footed shot from about 11 yards.With no World Cup to play for, interim U.S. coach Dave Sarachan went with youth. He gave six players their debuts, raising the total to 15 in four matches since the Americans were eliminated in qualifying. Defenders Erik Palmer-Brown and Antonee Robinson and goalkeeper Alex Bono joined Sargent as debutants in the starting lineup, and defender Matt Olosune and midfielder Keatan Parks entered on the second half. ST. LOUIS (AP) — The Blues will be casting a wide net in their coaching search.General manager Doug Armstrong fired Mike Yeo after Monday’s 2-0 loss to the Los Angeles Kings. Craig Berube is the interim coach while Armstrong assembles a list of candidates for the permanent job.“There’s going to be experienced head coaches on that list Colton Sissons Jersey ,” he said at a news conference Tuesday. “There’s going to be European head coaches on that list. College head coaches on that list. Junior head coaches. We’re not going to minimize or limit the scope that we’re going to look at.”Armstrong also did not rule out former St. Louis coach Joel Quenneville, who was fired recently by Chicago. He added that’s unlikely a permanent coach will be hired this season.“It’s possible. I’m not sure it’s probable,” Armstrong said. “It’s not something that we’re going to give updates on. This hockey team’s job is to win games and it’s my job to support this team.”To that end, Hall of Famer Larry Robinson will assist Berube for three weeks to a month because of the inexperienced assistants. The 67-year-old Robinson won a Stanley Cup while coaching the New Jersey Devils.“I think having Larry come in to give Craig someone to talk to who’s been there, done that is good for him,” Armstrong said.Armstrong fired Yeo about two hours after the team’s third shutout loss in four games. It was their fourth loss in five games. The scoreless streak is more than seven periods.At 7-9-3, the Blues are last in the Central Division. Their 17 points rank next to last in the NHL, ahead of only Los Angeles.“The talk I had with him last night was that we had to make a change,” Armstrong said. “I plan to get back to Mike later and thank him and reassure him that he’s paying for the sins of myself and the entire organization. It’s very unfortunate.”The Blues fell one point short of making the playoffs last season and entered this season with hopes of a deep playoff run. They acquired center Ryan O’Reilly in a trade from Buffalo. Armstrong also signed forwards Tyler Bozak, Patrick Maroon and David Perron.“Ultimately, it comes back to our record,” Armstrong said. “When he came in, he was able to jell the team and we went on a nice run. We won a playoff round. We had a good feeling about ourselves. That carried over to the next 25 games of the season. Then we hit a rut in December and quite honestly we haven’t gotten out of it.”Berube Adam Henrique Jersey , a 52-year-old former player, joined the Blues in June 2017. He coached the team’s then-AHL affiliate — the Chicago Wolves — to a 44-19-13 record and a division title during the 2016-17 season.Berube is a midseason replacement for the second time, having succeeded Peter Laviolette with the Flyers three games into the 2013-14 season. In two seasons there, he had a 75-58-28 regular-season record. The Flyers made the playoffs during the 2013-14 season but lost in the first round.“Mike’s a good friend of mine,” Berube said. “I loved working with him and coaching with him. We’ve got to move forward and get better. That’s the plan. We’ve definitely got to instill some confidence back in this hockey team. It’s a good hockey team. We’ve got good players.”While offering no definite plans, Berube has some ideas on how to get the team playing better.“I don’t think it’s anything massive. I think it’s tweaks here and there,” Berube said. “We’re going to demand … and that starts in practice. I’m demanding but I’m fair.”Yeo joined the Blues after five seasons with Minnesota. The Wild made the playoffs in three of Yeo’s four full seasons. He was fired 55 games into 2015-16.He was to have replaced Ken Hitchcock following the 2016-17 season, but Armstrong fired Hitchcock. On Tuesday, Hitchcock was appointed coach the Edmonton Oilers after the firing of Todd McLellan, the fourth NHL coaching dismissal this season.
