  • Basketball: Ailing Nowitzki...

    DALLAS (AP) — Dirk Nowitzki and the Dallas Mavericks have pulled off another stunning comeback, tying the NBA finals at two games each.
    And this time, Nowitzki did it while battling the flu.
    Nowitzki shook off three poor quarters to score 10 of his 21 points in the final period as the Mavericks outscored the Miami Heat 21-9 over the final 10:12 for an 86-83 victory in a memorable Game 4 on Tuesday night.
    The Mavs avoided going down 3-1, a deficit no team has ever overcome in the finals, and guaranteed the series will return to Miami for a Game 6 on Sunday night.
    Game 5 is Thursday in Dallas.
    “We just played with incredible heart and passion,” Dallas center Tyson Chandler said.

  • Topes Notes: Albuquerque takes...

    The Albuquerque Isotopes took over first place in the PCL American South standings with a 6-3 win over the Round Rock Express Tuesday night.
    Albuquerque (33-25) leapfrogged over Round Rock (33-26) with the win, taking a half-game edge in the division standings. Albuquerque never trailed in the game, scoring single tallies in the top of the first and second innings.
    On a scorching hot night in Round Rock — game-time temperature was 99 degrees — the Isotopes’ bats remained red hot a night after one of team’s biggest offensive performances of the season.

  • Basketball: Heat are up, Mavs...

    DALLAS (AP) — A chance for another championship ahead of him, Dwyane Wade refused to look back.
    No, he said, he doesn’t consider that the Miami Heat should have a 3-0 lead in the NBA finals.
    The margin is 2-1, close on the scoreboard even though it doesn’t feel that way on the floor. The Heat have repeatedly built double-digit cushions against the Dallas Mavericks, and a late collapse in Game 2 is all that’s keeping them from the lead that’s never been blown in an NBA series.
    The Heat insist the game isn’t as easy as Wade and LeBron James are making it look, and the Mavericks refuse to admit they might just be facing a superior foe.

  • Wrestling: Hokies help run LA...

    Just ahead of several local wrestlers’ appearance at a national tournament this weekend, the Los Alamos Hilltopper wrestling program is hosting a team camp.

    Virginia Tech’s assistant coach Nate Yetzer and one of its top wrestlers, Jesse Dong, will help run the camp.
    The camp continues through Wednesday.
    About 20 wrestlers were present for Monday’s opening day, including a group of seven wrestlers from Tucumcari High School, approximately 250 miles away.

    Isotopes just a half-game away from division lead with 11-0 win
    The Albuquerque Isotopes pounded out 14 hits on the way to a huge 11-0 win over the division-leading Round Rock Express Monday.
    The win moved the Isotopes to within a half-game of the PCL American South Division lead with one game left to play at Round Rock. That game is tonight.
    Right fielder Trent Oeltjen went 3-for-4 with five RBI Monday. Oeltjen had a two-run home run in the third inning off Express starter Zach Jackson to help get the ball rolling for offensively. The home run was Oeltjen’s eighth of the season and he leads the club with 34 RBI.

  • Running: Weeks, Romero tie at...

    Bob Weeks shared the top prediction of the week with Ted Romero at the Atomic City Roadrunners’ Pace Race.
    Last week’s Pace Race was run in Bayo Canyon. The next Pace Race is scheduled for Tuesday in the Quemazon area.
    The race was the annual Lollipop Figure 8 run. All finishers of the race were given a lollipop at the finish line.
    Weeks, who was the top predictor a week earlier, and Romero finished just three seconds off their times last Tuesday. Jennifer Reglien was nine seconds off and Dan Kelly had an error of 15 seconds.
    The fastest finisher on the 1-mile course was Charlotte Ulrich, who finished in 10:40. David Romero and Alexander Romero tied for the top finish on the long course, both posting a 22:32.
