    LONDON (AP) It’s almost as if Serena Williams never left.

    Even after more than a year away from the tour [url=http://www.officialstarsproonline.com/authentic-adidas-tyler-pitlick-jersey]Youth Tyler Pitlick Jersey[/url] , even after a health scare while having a baby a little more than 10 months ago, Williams is still capable of dominance. Especially at Wimbledon, where she’s one victory from an eighth championship.

    A relatively routine 6-2, 6-4 semifinal victory over 13th-seeded Julia Goerges of Germany put Williams into her 10th final at the All England Club and moved her closer to a 24th Grand Slam title, which would equal Margaret Court’s record.

    After hitting five aces with a serve that reached 119 mph, delivering 16 winners to only seven unforced errors, and covering the court so well with speed and effort against Goerges, Williams will face another German, 11th-seeded Angelique Kerber [url=http://www.greenbaypackersteamonline.com/jk-scott-jersey]Authentic JK Scott Jersey[/url] , on Saturday.

    BASEBALL

    MIAMI (AP) – The Miami Marlins have suspended their business relationship with Papa John’s after the company’s chairman of the board apologized for using a racial slur and resigned.

    In a statement Thursday, the Marlins said ”derogatory and insensitive comments” by John Schnatter weren’t reflective of the values of the baseball franchise.

    Papa John’s announced late Wednesday that Schnatter had resigned. Forbes said Schnatter used the N-word during a media training exercise in May.

    A Marlins promotion with Papa John’s had offered discounted pizza.

    ATLANTA (AP) – Police reports show officers responded to several nonviolent disputes at the home where Buffalo Bills star LeSean McCoy was attempting to evict his former girlfriend before an unidentified man bloodied the 34-year-old woman in a home invasion.

    Police responded early Tuesday to a report of a violent attack at a home in Milton, Georgia, just outside Atlanta. A lawyer for Delicia Cordon says Cordon was hurt when a man tried to take bracelets from her wrist and hit her in the face with a gun.

    McCoy had twice initiated eviction proceedings against Cordon, last month and in July 2017.

    Reports released Thursday said officers responded to domestic disputes at the home on July 3, 2017, and April 11 this year. No violence was reported either time.

    Police also responded last month when Cordon called from Virginia to stop people from removing items from the house.

    PRO BASKETBALL

    OAKLAND, Calif. (AP) – Free agent forward Jonas Jerebko has signed with the two-time defending champion Golden State Warriors.

    The Warriors announced the deal and planned to formally introduce Jerebko on Monday.

    A native of Sweden, Jerebko has played nine NBA seasons with Utah [url=http://www.authenticsseattleseahawks.com/cheap-shaquem-griffin-jersey]Shaquem Griffin Color Rush Jersey[/url] , Boston and Detroit. In 32 postseason games – four starts – for the Jazz and Celtics, he has averaged 4.0 points and 3.1 rebounds.

    Golden State had already added center DeMarcus Cousins in free agency and re-signed two-time reigning finals MVP Kevin Durant and forward/center Kevon Looney after winning a second straight title and third in four years. Centers JaVale McGee (Lakers) and Zaza Pachulia (Pistons) have departed.

    GOLF

    GULLANE, Scotland (AP) – Phil Mickelson says he wishes he could take back the moment when he swatted a moving golf ball at the U.S. Open. He says all he can do now is try to act a little better.

    Mickelson spoke after opening with an even-par 70 in the Scottish Open.

    He has apologized previously for his actions on the Saturday in the U.S. Open, where he ran after a putt and hit it back toward the hole as it was rolling off the 13th green at Shinnecock Hills. Mickelson was penalized two shots and later said he did it on purpose.

    Mickelson says he has done plenty of ”dumb stuff” in his career. He says whatever backlash he suffers from other players and fans is his own fault.

    HOCKEY

    CHICAGO (AP) – The Chicago Blackhawks traded Marian Hossa and Vinnie Hinostroza to the Arizona Coyotes, parting with a promising young forward in order to clear out a troublesome contract.

    The Blackhawks also sent defenseman Jordan Oesterle and a third-round pick in the 2019 draft to the Coyotes for forwards Marcus Kruger, MacKenzie Entwistle and Jordan Maletta, defenseman Andrew Campbell and a fifth-round pick in next year’s draft. Kruger was drafted by Chicago and spent his first seven seasons with the Blackhawks before he was traded to Vegas last July.

    The 39-year-old Hossa did not play last season because of severe side effects from medication to treat a progressive skin disorder. He isn’t expected to play again, but he is signed through the 2020-21 season at a $5.275 million cap hit.

    The Latest on the NBA Finals from Game 4 (all times local):

    11:30 p.m.

    The Warriors have romped to their second straight NBA championship, beating Cleveland 108-85 to finish a four-game sweep.

    It’s the third title in four years for the Warriors and the second one they won in Quicken Loans Arena [url=http://www.officialoilers.com/authentic-adidas-mike-cammalleri-jersey]Authentic Mike Cammalleri Jersey[/url] , where their 2015 title was secured. The Cavaliers won the rematch the next year but Golden State has handled them easily to finish the last two seasons.

    Stephen Curry scored 37 points and Kevin Durant had 20 for the Warriors, who won their sixth NBA title to tie Chicago for third place behind Boston and the Lakers.

    LeBron James checked out with 4:03 remaining in what could have been his final game in Cleveland, with fans chanting ”MVP! MVP!” as he went to the bench after congratulating some of the Warriors.



    11:20 p.m.

    Stephen Curry is up to 37 points and seven 3-pointers as the Warriors lead 102-76 with about 5 minutes left in Game 4.

    Kevin Durant has a triple-double and needs a strong finish to continue his streak of scoring 25 or more in every NBA Finals game he’s played. He’s done so in all 13 games.

    The Warriors are poised to finish off the first NBA Finals sweep since San Antonio in 2007 – a romp that also came at the expense of LeBron James and Cleveland.



    11 p.m.

    With one last third-quarter onslaught, the Warriors are up big heading to what could be the last 12 minutes of the NBA season.

    They lead Game 4 of the NBA Finals 86-65 as they try to sweep their way to a second straight championship and third in four years.

    Golden State outscored Cleveland 25-13 in the third quarter, the period when the Warriors either turned around or blew open so many games during their run to the NBA Finals.



    10:55 p.m.

    Another big third quarter for the Warriors has them headed toward the title.

    Golden State leads 81-63 with about 3 1/2 minutes left in the period. It’s the largest lead of the game.

    Stephen Curry leads the way with 25 points and Kevin Durant has 18.

    Meanwhile, LeBron James has picked up a fourth foul while the Cavaliers try to stay close enough to make a comeback a possibility.



    10:40 p.m.

    ESPN has released a statement on Hall of Famer Hubie Brown and his condition after he got hurt before Game 4 of the NBA Finals.

    Brown has been covering the series as an analyst on ESPN Radio.

    The network says Brown ”was injured when he bumped his knee on a table during pregame. He’s in good spirits and being treated by the medical staff on site. He hopes to return to the ESPN Radio booth if there is a Game 5.”

    The Warriors aren’t cooperating on that front: They’re up 11 in the third quarter, as they try to sweep Cleveland for the title.



    10:20 p.m.

    Golden State is one half away from a second straight NBA championship.

    The Warriors have a 61-52 lead over Cleveland at halftime of Game 4. Golden State led by 11 in the first quarter, fell behind midway through the second, and went into the locker room with momentum after Stephen Curry made a 3-pointer in the closing seconds of the period.

    Curry has bounced back from his struggles in Game 3 with 20 points [url=http://www.indianapoliscoltsteamonline.com]Colts Authentic Jerseys[/url] , making four of the Warriors’ nine 3-pointers. Andre Iguodala has three off the bench.

    Golden State is trying to celebrate on Cleveland’s home floor for the second time, having wrapped up its 2015 title at Quicken Loans Arena.

    LeBron James has 16 points for Cleveland.



    9:55 p.m.

    Cleveland has battled back from an 11-point deficit to regain the lead in Game 4 of the NBA Finals.

    The Cavaliers went ahead 39-38 when LeBron James finished off a fast break with a basket midway through the second quarter. That gave him a game-high 13 points.

    Golden State controlled the first quarter but the Cavaliers outscored the Warriors 14-4 to open the second.

    Klay Thompson picked up a third foul for the Warriors and remained scoreless.:55 p.m.



    9:40 p.m.

    Stephen Curry had 12 points and the Golden State Warriors made six 3-pointers in taking a 34-25 lead after one quarter of Game 4.

    Curry made two 3s after hitting only one in Game 3. He already had more points than in that 11-point outing.

    Andre Iguodala also made a pair of 3-pointers after entering early when Klay Thompson went to the bench with two fouls.

    Kevin Love scored nine points and LeBron James eight for the Cavaliers.



    9:35 p.m.

    Stephen Curry already has as many baskets in the first quarter of Game 4 as in all of Game 3.

    Curry made his first three shots, including an off-balance 3-pointer when he was trying to draw a foul as he shot. His nine quick points sent the Warriors to a 13-3 lead.

    He was only 3 for 16 in Game 3, including 1 for 10 behind the arc.

    The Cavaliers surged back with eight straight points to cut it to two points midway through the period.



    9:20 p.m.

    ESPN Radio broadcaster and Basketball Hall of Famer Hubie Brown was injured shortly before Game 4 of the NBA Finals and was taken to a nearby hospital for an apparent knee injury.

    The 84-year-old Brown was checked out by doctors in the arena, and will not be working the game as an analyst. There was no immediate word on the status or severity of his injury.

    Brown is a two-time NBA coach of the year and two-time Emmy nominee who is working the finals for the 17th time as a radio and television analyst. His broadcasting career goes back to the 1980s, and he’s been with ABC and ESPN since 2004.
