Michael Crabtree Jersey

The New York Giants have released five players Michael
Crabtree Jersey
 , but only one who saw action in a regular-season
game last season.

The Giants announced the moves Monday, four days before the start of a rookie
minicamp.

Released were safety Ryan Murphy, guard Damien Mama, receiver Canaan Severin,
running back Terrell Watson, and punter Austin Rehkow.

Murphy played in the final three contests in 2017 and had one tackle on
special teams.

Mama was signed on Dec. 12 off the Chiefs’ practice squad and was inactive
for the last three games. Severin was in training camp and on the practice squad
for a week. He signed a reserve/futures contract on Jan. 1, the same day Rehkow
was signed.

Watson was signed by the Giants on Jan. 24.

SPORTS BETTING

The Supreme Court cleared the way for states coast to coast to legalize
betting on sports, breaking a longtime ban and creating a potential financial
boon for states and the gambling industry. The first bets could be placed within
weeks.

Despite opposition from the major sports leagues and the Trump
administration, the high court struck down a federal law that had barred betting
on football Sammy
Baugh Jersey
 , basketball, baseball and other sports in most
states. States that want to take advantage of the ruling now will generally have
to pass legislation to allow sports books to open. Some, including New Jersey,
which brought the case to the Supreme Court, have a head start.

Sports leagues had expressed concerns about any expansion of sports gambling.
Their huge businesses could be badly harmed if people thought the outcome of
games could be altered by someone who had wagered money on a certain result.

However, the ruling also could be seen as merely bringing an activity out of
the shadows that many people already see as a mainstream hobby.

NBA

HOUSTON (AP) – Kevin Durant scored 37 points and Klay Thompson added 28 to
lead Golden State to a 119-106 win in the long-awaited showdown with the Houston
Rockets in Game 1 of the Western Conference final.

Starting a playoff series on the road for the first time since 2014, the
Warriors trailed by nine early, but had evened it up by halftime and used a big
run at the beginning of the fourth quarter to pull away.

Game 2 is Wednesday night in Houston.

Eric Gordon opened the final period with a 3-pointer to get the top-seeded
Rockets within 4, but Thompson scored the first eight points of a 13-4 run to
make it 100-87 with about eight minutes left.

PHOENIX (AP) – Igor Kokoskov is the first NBA head coach born and raised
outside North America Authentic
Jameis Winston Jersey
 , but he reminded everyone at his
introductory news conference with the Phoenix Suns that he didn’t exactly just
get off the plane.

Kokoskov, 46, just finished his 18th season as an NBA assistant coach. He’s
been with six different teams. Some played slow. Some played fast. He has been
on the staffs of seven squads to reach the conference finals. This game is not
new to him.

Kokoskov was named head coach of the Suns last week but, as an assistant with
the Utah Jazz, he had to finish his work in the playoff series against the
Houston Rockets before turning his attention to the desert.

ATLANTA (AP) – At the start of his first news conference as the Atlanta Hawks
coach, Lloyd Pierce looked down at a row filled with four of his new
players.

His thoughts immediately turned to his passion: Defense.

Pierce, the former Philadelphia 76ers assistant whose agreement to become the
Hawks coach was announced Friday, said his first priority will be assembling a
staff. Pierce will be looking for assistants who share his passion for defense
and his proven ability to connect with young players.

A young Atlanta roster is about to add much more youth in next month’s NBA
draft.

NHL

WINNIPEG, Manitoba (AP) – Jonathan Marchessault scored twice and Marc-Andre
Fleury stopped 30 shots Womens

 , lifting the Vegas Golden Knights to a 3-1
series-tying win over the Winnipeg Jets in Game 2 of the Western Conference
final.

Kyle Connor scored midway through the third period to pull Winnipeg within a
goal. Marchessault restored the two-goal lead 1:28 later.

Tomas Tatar scored 6:37 into the game for the Golden Knights.

Connor Hellebuyck had 25 saves for the Jets.

Game 3 is Wednesday night in Las Vegas.

NFL

HACKENSACK, N.J. (AP) – Three sports memorabilia collectors who accused New
York Giants quarterback Eli Manning of providing bogus ”game-worn” equipment
that was sold to unsuspecting fans settled their lawsuit against the Super
Bowl-winning quarterback days before the case was scheduled to go to trial.

A spokesman for the defendants, a group that included Manning, the Giants,
two equipment managers and Steiner Sports, the company with whom Manning is
under contract to provide game-worn jerseys and helmets for sale, said Monday
night a settlement had been reached to resolve the claims. Details were not
given.

Plaintiffs Eric Inselberg, Michael Jakab and Sean Godown had sought triple
the amount of their alleged losses – which totaled less than $20,000 combined –
for buying two helmets billed as worn by Manning. They also had sought punitive
damages Danton
Heinen Jersey Kids
 , and claimed in court filings they would
produce evidence that would ”show that Manning engaged in a pattern of knowingly
providing items to Steiner Sports that he misrepresented as having been
game-used when he knew they were not.”

BASEBALL

CHICAGO (AP) – Ben Zobrist was joined by Chicago Cubs teammates Kyle
Schwarber and Steve Cishek in wearing black spikes on Monday despite a warning
from Major League Baseball that he was in violation of the sport’s uniform
regulations.

Zobrist posted a letter from MLB on Instagram on Saturday that cited him for
violating regulations requiring at least 51 percent of the exterior of a
player’s shoes be the club’s designated primary shoe color. For the Cubs, that
color is blue.

The letter said Zobrist will be subject to discipline, including a fine, if
he continued to wear non-compliant shoes.

Zobrist said he planned to contract Joe Torre, MLB’s Chief Baseball
Officer.
