Jack was able to hit only one of two free throws, making it 109-106 with seven seconds left. Isaiah Taylor brought up the ball up the court and lost control of it near halfcourt before Kent Bazemore recovered. Bazemore was fouled with three seconds to go. After making the first free throw, he purposely missed the second one, but Porzingis sealed it with two free throws of his own.
“You get an opportunity in the third period to make a difference, every shift, whether it’s create energy, drawing a penalty or scoring a big goal,” Wingels said. “Recently, our line’s been able to do that.”

Kane found an open Anisimov in the right circle for the center’s team-high 13th goal , giving the Blackhawks a 2-1 lead. The connection occurred just 71 seconds after Anthony Duclair tied it at 1 with his seventh goal for Arizona, tipping home Alex Goligoski’s pass in front.
The Browns’ most talented and reliable veterans — Joe Thomas, Duke Johnson Jr., Danny Shelton, Joel Bitonio — were all drafted in previous regimes. Brown did little to expand that corps during his two years.

Neither pitcher Jorge Guzman nor infielder Jose Devers was considered a top prospect. Gary Denbo, the Marlins’ director of player development, was in charge of the Yankees’ minor leagues before joining Jeter.
The Marlins will owe the Yankees’ $30 million as part of the transaction. In most cases, the more money Miami would send, the better talent they would receive in return.
