CLEVELAND (AP) — Andrew Bogut has gone from being perhaps the final puzzle piece to another missing one for the Cleveland Cavaliers. Bogut broke his left leg after playing just 58 seconds in his Cleveland debut last night, when his shin banged into the knee of Miami's Okaro White. The Cavaliers lost the game 106-98 to the Heat.
ATLANTA (AP) — Golden State beat the Hawks, 119-111, in Atlanta last night, but the big story coming out of that game seems to be the squabbling on the home bench. Dennis Schroder was yanked early in the third quarter of Monday night's 119-111 loss to the Golden State Warriors after arguing with Dwight Howard about an errant pass. The point guard later told reporters he didn't understand Coach Mike Budenholzer's decision, but he wants to sit down with him and Howard to "get on the same page." Howard says wayward passes happen, but "we've got to make sure we nip it in the bud quick."
LAS VEGAS (AP) — The last time Gonzaga failed to make the West Coast Conference title game, Nigel Williams-Goss was 2 years old. The WCC Player of the Year helped the fourth-ranked Bulldogs continue what coach Mark Few calls "an amazing run" last night, pouring in 25 points and pulling down eight rebounds in a 77-68 semifinal victory over Santa Clara. Gonzaga faces 19th-ranked Saint Mary's in the WCC final tonight. The Gaels cruised to an 81-50 victory over BYU last night.
WASHINGTON (AP) — The Dallas Stars have taken a big step backward this season, with a playoff berth a longshot at best. But somehow, they still manage to bring their best to the nation's capital. Kari Lehtonen made 42 saves, as the Stars snapped the Capitals' home winning streak at 15 games with a 4-2 victory last night. Dallas now has a six-game winning streak in Washington.
