USA basketball survives Spain to win gold

In a tight, often contentious game Sunday, the U.S. men's basketball team outlasted Spain, 107-100, to win the gold medal at the London Olympics. Kevin Durant scored 30 points to go with nine rebounds, and Chris Paul and LeBron James made huge shots down the stretch to pull off the victory.

The U.S. led by one one point at the half, and the margin stayed that way going into the fourth quarter as Spain's Pau Gasol scored 24 points to go with eight rebounds and seven assists. Durant's hot shooting kept the U.S. in front, but when Spain went to a box-and-one defense on Durant, America's other stars took over.

James (19 points, seven rebounds, four assists) drove the lane for a huge dunk and then buried a deep 3-pointer with the shot clock winding down. The gold medal caps off a breakthrough year for James that included his third MVP award and first NBA championship.

This is Mike Krzyzewski's final Olympics as Team USA coach. Early speculation...

Report: Plax to work out for Patriots

The Patriots will work out Plaxico Burress on Sunday, per a report from ESPN. Last year with the Jets, the 35-year-old wide receiver caught 45 passes for 612 yards in his first season since serving 22 months in jail for a 2008 gun charge. The 6-foot-2, 226-pounder has also played for the Steelers and Giants, and is perhaps best known around New England as the guy who caught the game-winning touchdown pass in Super Bowl XLII to help the Giants knock off the Patriots.

Chad Johnson arrested in domestic dispute

Police say former Patriots and current Dolphins wide receiver Chad Johnson was arrested Saturday night on a domestic violence charge after allegedly head-butting his wife, Evelyn Lozada, whom the wideout recently married.

According to Davie, Fla., police captain Dale Engle, Lozada confronted Johnson about a receipt she had found for a box of condoms and an argument ensued. When authorities arrived at the scene, Lozada reportedly had lacerations on her forehead. 

The Sun Sentinel newspaper reports that Johnson hadn't been arrested since entering the NFL in 2001, but he had been charged in a domestic dispute while in college.

Red Sox can't solve McAllister, Indians

The Red Sox fell to three games below .500, dropping a 5-2 decision to the Indians Saturday night at Progressive Field in Cleveland.

The Sox couldn't solve Cleveland starter Zach McAllister, who allowed just three hits over eight innings, striking out four and not walking a batter. The only three Red Sox baserunners to reach were Jacoby Ellsbury (2 hits), Adrian Gonzalez (double), and Dustin Pedroia, who singled with two outs in the ninth inning off Indians' closer Chris Perez.

Red Sox starter Franklin Morales took the loss despite turning in another solid performance. The lefty gave up three runs on two hits, striking out six and walking four. Morales was relieved by Andrew Miller, who came in with one out and the bases loaded in the sixth inning, allowing the go-ahead run to score via a Michael Brantley sacrifice fly.

The biggest thorn in the Red Sox' sides was former teammate Brent Lillibridge, who came away with three hits, including a...

Yanks sign Lowe to pitch out of bullpen

The Yankees have signed Derek Lowe to pitch out of their bullpen, multiple media outlets are reporting.

The 39-year-old had been designated for assignment by the Indians, who ended up releasing the former Red Sox hurler Friday. Lowe had totaled a 5.52 ERA in 21 starts for Cleveland, including an 8.80 ERA in his last 12 starts.

Lowe is making $15 million this season, only $5 million of which is being paid by the Indians, who traded for the veteran last offseason. The Braves are on the hook for the remainder of the deal, with the Yankees will only be forced to play the pro-rated portion of the major league minimum for the remainder of the season.

The sinkerballer hasn't pitched consistently out of the bullpen since 2001, when he made 67 appearances for the Red Sox. Since that season, Lowe has pitched just one regular season game as a reliever.
