  • Durant comes up big late as Thunder win

    OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) — Kevin Durant delivered the fourth quarter LeBron James never could last year.
    So forget those NBA Finals jitters at the start. Durant and the young Thunder showed they have already figured out how to finish.
    Durant scored 17 of his 36 points in another nightmarish final period for James and his team, leading a Thunder storm that overwhelmed the Heat and gave Oklahoma City a 105-94 victory over Miami in Game 1.
    Teaming with Russell Westbrook to outscore the Heat in the second half by themselves, Durant struck first in his head-to-head matchup with James, who had seven points in the final quarter and was helpless to stop the league’s three-time scoring champion.

  • Tour de LA returns for 40th running

    Sunday, the oldest bike race in the southwest will get a little older.
    The Tour de Los Alamos is celebrating its 40th anniversary this year and it could be celebrating with a big turnout.
    Tour organizers are anticipating somewhere close to 200 riders for Sunday’s race, which includes eight separate competition categories. The race, which started in 1973, is well known throughout the region but owes much of its success to the Los Alamos biking community.
    “It’s very traditional and we’re very lucky to be able to use the traditional route,” race official Dave Zerkle said. “The backbone of this race has always been the locals. They make this thing click.”

  • Bradbury to open new fire exhibit

    Beginning Wednesday, the public is invited to Los Alamos National Laboratory’s (LANL) Bradbury Science Museum to take part in “Living With Wildfire: Share Your Stories.” An opening reception for the general public is from 3:30 to 6 p.m.
    Nearly one year ago the Las Conchas fire burned in forest areas surrounding Los Alamos National Laboratory (LANL) and forced a one-week closure. The wildfire spared the Laboratory but it affected thousands of residents in Northern New Mexico. The exhibit provides an opportunity for people to share their stories about the Las Conchas fire and other wildfires, listen to stories told by others and watch a slideshow that describes the community’s response to wildfires.
