James, Heat capture title with Game 5 win

LeBron James finished with 26 points, 13 assists and 11 rebounds to lead the Heat to a 121-106 Game 5 win over the Thunder Thursday night, giving Miami an NBA championship and allowing James to capture his first career professional title.

James and the Heat closed out Kevin Durant (32 points, 11 rebounds) with a tremendous third quarter. With Miami holding a 10-point edge at halftime, the Heat ran away with a 36-22 third-quarter burst thanks to some great shooting from beyond the 3-point arc (the Heat went 14-for-26 on 3's on the night).

Bobby V: Middlebrooks playing time 'just fine'

On Thursday night, Will Middlebrooks served as the catalyst in the Red Sox' 6-5, come-from-behind victory, going 3-for-4 with a game-tying two-run homer while driving in four runs. He is now hitting .316 with a .352 OBP, a .551 slugging percentage, a .903 OPS, eight homers and 31 RBI, and the Red Sox own a 22-13 record in games when he's started at third base.

That being the case, Red Sox manager Bobby Valentine was asked whether he could resist having Middlebrooks -- who has started 11 of 18 games this month -- play on an everyday basis, rather than continuing his timeshare with Kevin Youkilis at third base.

"It seems like he’s doing just fine like this. He’s keeping sharp," Valentine said. "He’s watching, he’s learning and when he’s in there, he doesn’t look like he’s missing a beat, obviously."

For his part, Middlebrooks said that he is continuing to grow as a player. Indeed,...

Will the thrill: Middlebrooks keys Sox win

Will Middlebrooks tied the game with a long homer to the bleachers in center and drove in four runs as the Red Sox completed the three-game sweep of the Marlins with a 6-5 win Thursday night at a steamy Fenway Park. The Red Sox won their fifth straight and matched their high-water mark of three games over .500 at 36-33. 

Making his third start back off the disabled list, Daisuke Matsuzaka was very shaky in the first frame, giving up three hits and three runs while allowing three stolen bases and needing 33 pitches to get through the inning. 

But beginning with the final out of the first, he retired 14 straight batters while the Red Sox chipped away at Miami's lead. The Red Sox got two runs back in the fourth when they took advantage of Carlos Zambrano's complete lack of control. The Marlins righty drilled Cody Ross and Jarrod Saltalamacchia to open the inning. Middlebrooks then singled home Ross. Mike Aviles followed one out later with a...

Schilling to appear on D&C Friday, 7 a.m.

Former Red Sox pitcher Curt Schilling will appear in studio on the Dennis & Callahan Show at 7 a.m. Friday.

The appearance marks Schilling's first radio interview since his video game company, 38 Studios, was embroiled in controversy due to financial problems stemming from its business relationship with Rhode Island. The company recently filed for bankruptcy. Schilling is on a leave of absence from his role of baseball analyst on ESPN.

Schilling will take phone calls during the appearance.

Crawford could return to games Saturday

Red Sox outfielder Carl Crawford could begin a rehab assignment as soon as Saturday, according to manager Bobby Valentine. Crawford is back in Fort Myers, and barring a setback, he could serve as a designated hitter as soon as Saturday in the Rookie Level Gulf Coast League.

"If he felt as good today and in Florida as he did yesterday, he’s gonna DH," said Valentine.

Crawford has missed the entire season to date while recovering first from offseason wrist surgery and, more recently, from a strained ulnar collateral ligament in his left (throwing) elbow. Valentine has said that he wants Crawford to have roughly 50 or so at-bats in order to be ready to play at the big league level.
