Bryant looks to rebound and the Pens stay focused

Tex miss

The Red Sox wanted Mark Teixeira badly this past offseason. Instead, he chose the Yankees. Even with a sterling 7-0 start against its hated rivals, Boston still must dream of what could have been, Danny Knobler says.

Howard leads Magic and the Pens force a Game 7

Constant gardener

Dwight Howard dominates and Phil Jackson ruminates. The Lakers coach performs his specialty after the Lakers' 108-104 Game 3 loss: hints about missed calls. Fair? Who cares, get used to it, Ken Berger says. | Doyel

Fate of Floyd

Tim Floyd resigns as USC coach, a month after allegations he paid to help steer O.J. Mayo to the program. The one-and-done star costs Floyd his reputation and career, says Gary Parrish, who wonders who is next.

Pitched battles

Sage Rosenfels and Tarvaris Jackson are ready to duel in Minnesota, unless Brett Favre stages another of his drama-draped re-entries. But that's just one of five QB battles to watch, Clark Judge says. Full story

With a little help

With Denver keying in on Kobe, Bryant's teammates rise to the challenge and help L.A. win 103-94 in Game 5. The Lakers sure look much deeper than the Cavaliers, and Ken Berger wonders if LeBron James is jealous.
