  • Durant comes up big late as...

    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...

    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.”

  • Nadal picks up 7th French Open...

    PARIS (AP) — Rafael Nadal was worried.
    A guy so unflinching, so nearly unbeatable, while sliding and grinding and pounding his way past opponent after opponent at the French Open, got a real case of nerves during the 18 hours he and Novak Djokovic waited for the restart of their rain-interrupted final at Roland Garros.
    Instead of focusing on how close he was to winning a record seventh French Open championship, Nadal grew increasingly wary of the other possible outcome: a loss in a fourth consecutive Grand Slam final against Djokovic, who was trying to become the first man since 1969 to collect four straight major titles.

  • Lobos earn title at state...

    A local bowling team picked up first place in its division at the state open championship tournament last month.
    The Lobos bowling squad rolled a total of 3,613 pins at the state tournament, which earned it the men’s Division I title, but without much room to spare.
    The team, comprised of locals Tim Ellis, Jeff Brown, Bryan Fearey, Travis Turner and Kerry Coffelt, slipped past the Throw Togethers, a team from Roswell. Throw Togethers tallied a combined 3,598 in the tournament.

  • Griggs’ contributions remembered

    One of the initial organizers of the YMCA’s fundraising golf tournament was there in spirit Saturday.
    Just a little less than a year after his death, the YMCA renamed one of its biggest fundraising events of the year for Ed Griggs. Griggs was a longtime volunteer and member of the local YMCA, but is remembered for lending a hand for anyone who needed it.
    But among Griggs’ many passions were golf and gardening. So when the YMCA dedicated a plaque in his honor Saturday at Los Alamos Golf Course, the most logical place was on the third tee box where he was out several times a week tending the flowers planted around it.
