Heat closer to NBA Finals...Lightning take control

LAKE BUENA VISTA, Fla. (AP) — The Miami Heat own a 3-1 series lead in the NBA's Eastern Conference finals after Tyler Herro led them to a 112-109 triumph over the Boston Celtics. Herro scored 17 of his 37 points in the fourth quarter, including five straight to put Miami ahead, 91-85. He and Magic Johnson are the only 20-year-old players in league history to score at least 37 points in a playoff game.

EDMONTON, Alberta (AP) — Steven Stamkos scored the opening goal and the Tampa Bay Lightning took a 2-1 series lead in the Stanley Cup final by topping the Dallas Stars, 5-2. Stamkos gave the Lightning a 2-0 lead at the seven-minute mark in his first game since undergoing upper-body surgery almost seven months ago. Victor Hedman provided the eventual game-winner while Tampa Bay was building a 5-1 lead in the second period.

NEW YORK (AP) — The Tampa Bay Rays are the latest MLB team to clinch a division title. Randy Arozarena homered twice and the Rays wrapped up their first AL East title in 10 years with an 8-5 victory over the New York Mets. Joey Wendle and Brandon Lowe (low) also went deep for Tampa Bay.

CHICAGO (AP) — Chicago Bears Hall of Fame running back Gale Sayers has died at age 77. “The Kansas Comet” tied one NFL record with six touchdowns in a game and set another with 22 touchdowns in his first season: 14 rushing, six receiving, one punt and one kickoff return. Sayers followed that by being voted an All-Pro during the first five of his seven NFL seasons from 1965-71.

UNDATED (AP) — Los Angeles Chargers quarterback Tyrod Taylor missed last Sunday’s game because a team doctor accidentally punctured his lung. That’s according to a person familiar with the case who spoke to The Associated Press on condition of anonymity Wednesday because of medical restriction issues. Coach Anthony Lynn said Taylor is still not 100% and that rookie Justin Herbert will get his second NFL start on Sunday against the Carolina Panthers.
