Isaiah Thomas denies bad-mouthing Dennis Schroder’s mom

Celtics star Isaiah Thomas insists he would never say anything bad about someone’s mom, regardless of claims to the contrary by Hawks point guard Dennis Schroder.

The feuding guards re-ignited their rivalry during Boston’s 103-101 win in Atlanta Friday night, when the two were at each other’s throats for much of the game. Schroder told reporters afterward that Thomas’ trash-talking involved derogatory remarks made toward Schroder’s mother.

After a block on the other end, Harden’s layup put Houston ahead 115-111 with just over a minute to play.

Harden’s 11th triple-double this season comes after he had 40 points, 11 assists and 10 rebounds in a win over the Raptors on Sunday. Harden joined Russell Westbrook, Michael Jordan, and Pete Maravich as the only players with back-to-back 40-point triple-doubles in a season.

Harden will look for a rare three-peat Wednesday against the Timberwolves.

Playing in his first game with the Cavaliers, Kyle Korver went 1-for-5 from the field, with just two points and a dismal minus-11 in Cleveland’s 100-92 loss to the Jazz.

Wizards All-Star John Wall drilled the game-winning jumper to lead the Wizards over the Rg3 Cheap Jerseys short-handed Bulls, who were without Jimmy Butler (illness) and Dwyane Wade (rest).

Grizzlies (24-16) at Thunder (23-16), 8 p.m. ET — The last time these two teams met the Grizzlies took advantage of Russell Westbrook’s ejection, pummeling the Thunder for a 114-80 victory. The Thunder and Westbrook will be vying for a third consecutive home triple-double and his 18th of the season on Orioles Cheap Jerseys Wednesday.

the guy that we put down was the director of merchandising

Alderson, who let everyone in on the “inside joke,” said the scout who went to Tebow’s workout wasn’t impressed, so the team put the director of merchandising in the team media guide as the person responsible for signing the 29-year-old former football player.

“Ultimately, the guy that we put down was the director of merchandising,” Alderson said.

The Mets were the only team to show interest in Tebow following an undewhelming workout last August. He didn’t exactly tear it up for Single-A Columbia, though did hit one of his three home runs in his first at-bat. But Tebow also struck out 69 times in 214 at-bats over 64 games and walked 24 Reebok Cheap Jerseys times to go with 47 base hits and 23 RBIs. He also had seven errors in left field.

Knowing George could be a future teammate, Isaiah Thomas thought it’d be fun to comment on Stephenson’s Instagram post. The two then had some interesting exchanges on the social platform.

This Celtics and Pacers rivalry would be pretty fun if it wasn’t so one-sided. Once George leaves, the Pacers aren’t left with much of a contending team, at least not for the upcoming season. But while the play may not be there, the trash talk definitely is.

MLB.com’s Jon Paul Morosi wrote, “The Tigers are willing to engage in trade discussions involving Verlander and Avila, according to sources with knowledge of the team’s thinking, but the Tigers and Cubs have yet to begin formal negotiations.”

OK, that doesn’t mean anything is imminent. It doesn’t even Rg3 Cheap Jerseys mean Verlander will be traded at all. As ESPN’s Buster Olney tweeted, Verlander’s contract is a major discussion point and potential roadblock to any deal.
