  • Embiid scores 23 in return as 76ers top Heat for 2-1 series lead

    Joel Embiid had trouble with his new mask. It didn't slow him down. Embiid's playoff debut was a smashing success for Philadelphia. The All-Star center returned from a 10-game absence and scored 23 points, including a personal 7-0 run down the stretch that iced matters, and the 76ers reclaimed control of their Eastern Conference first-round series by topping the Heat 128-108 on Thursday night in Miami. The 76ers outscored the Heat 32-14 in the fourth quarter to...

    Ten months removed from reclaiming his title as the Warriors' associate head coach, Mike Brown is ready to admit the obvious: Last spring, when he spent six weeks filling in for the ailing Steve Kerr, Brown felt the weight of outside expectations.

Neither of those things happened. Vogel was fired by the Magic on Thursday about 10 hours after the team wrapped up a 25-57 season, its sixth consecutive losing year. Vogel, who had one year left on his contract, went 54-110 in his two years with Orlando. The Magic haven't...

  • ‘Lean on Pete’ rests on Charlie Plummer’s fine lead performance

    "Lean on Pete" is a highly flawed yet haunting coming-of-age story in which a boy cares for and then steals a horse. It takes place in a world films rarely show, one where the crusty mentor lacks a heart of gold and where country music plays in every diner, but the people eating there are hard, not homespun. Poverty and cycles of alcoholism and parental neglect will have that effect. But 15-year-old Charley (Charlie Plummer) still seems to have a shot at a better life, at film's...
