Winners, losers from Raptors-Warriors Game 3

Winners, losers from Raptors-Warriors Game 3 Even playing at home in front of their crowd, the Golden State Warriors were going to be in for a tough task against the Toronto Raptors. Tied at one in the NBA Finals, both Kevin Durant and Klay Thompson we’re sidelined for this pivotal Game 3 matchup at Oracle. Toronto took advantage early, holding a 12-point lead at one point in the opening stanza. Stephen Curry kept Golden State close early, going for 17 points, six rebounds and three assists in the first quarter alone. From there, Toronto answered pretty much every Warriors run to win this one going away, 123-109.

The 2019 Masters is in the books. The week at Augusta yielded plenty of winners and losers . These were the most notable among them. We know about the three major wins since the 2017 U . S . Open . But going back to the 2014 PGA Championship Masters, Koepka has finished outside of the top-20 in

Winners and losers from the 2019 U.S. Open© Rob Schumacher-USA TODAY Sports The 2019 U.S. Open at Pebble Beach is complete. For the first time in his career, Gary Woodland is a major champion.

While Woodland is the only champion from the week, we can’t say that he’s the only winner. Brooks Koepka, the two-time reigning U.S. Open champion, fought awfully hard to make it three in a row. Meanwhile, an amateur record that was set nearly six decades ago by Jack Nicklaus was broken.

On the other side, Phil Mickelson couldn’t get it going in his bid for the career Grand Slam. Tiger Woods had plenty of highlights, but almost as many lowlights.

Looking back on the week that was at Pebble Beach, these were the top winners and losers from the 2019 U.S. Open.

Winners and losers of the Craig Kimbrel and Dallas Keuchel signings

Winners and losers of the Craig Kimbrel and Dallas Keuchel signings It may have taken a few extra months, but we can finally declare that Hot Stove season is over. The last two major free agents are off the board after Craig Kimbrel agreed to a three-year, $43 million deal with the Chicago Cubs and Dallas Keuchel joined the Atlanta Braves on a one-year, $13 million deal. Deals for both free agents not surprisingly gained steam this week after the MLB draft commenced. Since both players refused qualifying offers during the winter, that meant both had draft pick compensation attached if they signed prior to the draft.

Winner: Gary Woodland delivers rock-solid performance in first major win

Woodland carried the 54-hole lead into Sunday. That assignment earned him a Sunday pairing with Justin Rose, a former World No. 1 and a past U.S. Open champ. In the group ahead was Koepka, the current No. 1 and the two-time defending U.S. Open (and PGA) Champion. Woodland answered the call. He didn’t panic when Koepka started out on fire. Woodland simply answered, making birdie on two of the first three holes. When the shots started to get a little more errant, Woodland’s short game came through. The overall performance was simply outstanding. As a result, Woodland is a very deserving U.S. Open champ.

NBA Finals: Winners and losers from Raptors-Warriors Game 4

NBA Finals: Winners and losers from Raptors-Warriors Game 4 Down 2-1 heading into Game 4 of the NBA Finals, the Golden State Warriors knew they were in must-win mode against the Toronto Raptors. In front of loud home crowd in what might have been the final game at Oracle Arena, Golden State came out strong. It held a double-digit lead in the first quarter. Despite shooting struggles in the initial half (2-of-17 from distance) Toronto kept it close. In fact, Kawhi Leonard and Co. were down only four at intermission. Toronto then took full control in the second half. Leonard went into domination mode. Golden State’s star backcourt, primarily Stephen Curry, could not answer.

This U.S. Open should have played out well for Mickelson, who has five wins at Pebble Beach. More importantly, low scores really suit aggressive players such as Lefty. When he turned on Saturday, Mickelson was at two-under. Unfortunately, rather than play himself into contention, he was five-over on the back, which included a triple on the 18th. Mickelson turned 49 on Sunday. He’s already older than any major winner and four years older than any U.S. Open champ. If he couldn’t even be in the hunt at Pebble, it’s hard to imagine things will be any better in future U.S. Opens.

Winner: Brooks Koepka puts up strong three-peat effort

While Koepka didn’t pull off the U.S. Open three-peat, he was absolutely brilliant. He applied early pressure to Woodland on Sunday. Even when some of Koepka’s shots started to get a little more crooked, he stayed in the mix with a great short game and putter, making only two bogeys. Three U.S. Open titles in a row would have been arguably the greatest achievement in golf history. Koepka didn’t quite do that. He certainly made Woodland earn it, however. Also, a we’d call two wins and a runner-up a pretty spectacular three-year run.

Winners and losers from Warriors' clutch Game 5 victory over Raptors

Winners and losers from Warriors' clutch Game 5 victory over Raptors Facing elimination in Game 5 of the NBA Finals against the Toronto Raptors, the Golden State Warriors dug deep and kept the series alive. The first half was wild, with both teams putting together solid runs. Golden State took a six-point lead, 62-56, into the locker room as Stephen Curry led both teams with 23 first-half points. However, the Warriors had heavy hearts after watching star Kevin Durant once more head into the locker room with a leg injury. The two teams were even in the third quarter, setting up a wild final stanza with Golden State clinging to a six-point lead.

Loser: Rory McIlroy done in by abysmal Sunday start

McIlroy entered Sunday five back of Woodland. So, he needed to have a strong start. He just couldn’t find his form. McIlroy made a double and two other bogeys on the front nine. What’s really unfortunate for McIlroy is that in other ways, he did what he had to do. McIlroy also made three birdies on the front nine. But with the mistakes, he turned at one-over for the day. And while McIlroy's T-8 finish wasn’t bad by any means, front-nine inconsistencies kept him from being a real factor down the stretch.

Winner: Oft-criticized USGA delivers

Winners and losers from the 2019 U.S. Open© Rob Schumacher-USA TODAY Sports

The USGA has taken a lot of well-earned criticism for the way it’s handled recent U.S. Opens. This week, however, the USGA did an amazing job. Pebble Beach was in great shape. When the scores in the early rounds came in low, the USGA didn’t overreact by drying the course (particularly the greens) out. We hope that this model is followed next year at Winged Foot. Despite the low scores, this was still a good test of golf. The bad shots were punished, and the good shots were rewarded. Realistically, that’s all we can ask for from a U.S. Open setup.

Celtics turned down Kawhi Leonard trade?

Celtics turned down Kawhi Leonard trade? The Boston Celtics have to be kicking themselves after a possible trade for reigning NBA Finals MVP Kawhi Leonard fell through last year. According to ESPN’s Zach Lowe, Boston could have landed Leonard from the San Antonio Spurs before the 2018-19 season. Unfortunately for the Celtics, general manager Danny Ainge refused to part ways with his two young stars. “If there is a team feeling Leonard regret now, it is Boston,” Lowe reported. “The Celtics had the coveted young players and draft picks to outbid Toronto.

Loser: Justin Rose’s swing lets him down on Sunday

Heading into the week, it would have been hard to be too down on a T-3 finish. The way it materialized, however, was a real disappointment for Rose. He entered Sunday one shot back. It was a great opportunity to apply pressure to Woodland, who had never won a major. Instead, Rose shot a three-over 74 to finish five behind the champ on the day and six for the tournament. Frankly, the only reason he was even that close was because of his putter. Tee-to-green, Rose played well below what we’d expect from a former World No. 1 and past U.S. Open champ.

Winner: Viktor Hovland delivers historic final amateur performance

Hovland will turn pro after this week. It’s safe to say that he finished his amateur career in style. Just like at the Masters, Hovland earned low amateur honors, finishing the week in 282 shots, or four-under. Both marks broke the previous scoring record for an amateur. The previous record holder? Jack Nicklaus in 1960. Hovland’s finishing score would have been good enough to win three of the previous U.S. Opens contested at Pebble Beach. Unfortunately, that wasn’t the case this year. All things considered, however, breaking a record held by Nicklaus is a pretty good consolation prize.

Rangers' Mazara ties Statcast record with 505-foot home run

Rangers' Mazara ties Statcast record with 505-foot home run Nomar Mazara almost broke Statcast. The Texas Rangers slugger pushed Major League Baseball’s state-of-the-art tracking technology to its apparent limit Friday night when he crushed a 505-foot home run against the Chicago White Sox. 5️⃣0️⃣5️⃣ FEET! ????????????— MLB (@MLB) June 22, 2019 Since Statcast’s inception in 2015, only three home runs have been projected to travel beyond 500 feet. Mazara’s blast tied Trevor Story of the Colorado Rockies, who launched his own 505-foot home run against the San Francisco Giants on Sept. 5, 2018.

Loser: Inconsistency keeps Tiger Woods from contention

Tiger made 15 birdies on the week. For comparison’s sake, Woodland made 17 while Koepka made 16. So, why wasn’t Tiger a heck of a lot closer? Quite simply, he couldn’t get out of his own way. In addition to the 15 birdies, Woods made 11 bogeys and a double. In other U.S. Opens, the two-under score would be good enough to contend, or even win. At Pebble this weekend, however, there were low scores to be had. Tiger definitely had enough good moments to be in the mix. Unfortunately, the bad moments were just too common for Tiger to have a chance to win a fourth U.S. Open.
