James Jones is a three point specialist for the Miami Heat. He is not generally known as an enforcer. For some reason, tonight he felt like getting into it with the big boys and gave Joakim Noah a double-fisted shot to the face under the guise of “going for a rebound.” The referees did not fall for Jones’ non-traditional attempt at boxing out and rewarded him with a flagrant-2. It was an inexcusable play, but in Jones’ defense, it was Joakim Noah.
The Texas Rangers appear poised to hang on to Yu Darvish.
With Clayton Kershaw out, the Dodgers need to add another ace.
It was bound to happen.
