    Warriors Return To NBA Finals

    By Matt Moore (CBS Sports) The Golden State Warriors advanced to their second straight NBA Finals Monday night with a 96-88 victory over the Oklahoma City Thunder in Game 7 of the Western Conference Finals.  The Thunder led the entire first half and dominated in most areas of the game, but in the end, all that really mattered was Stephen Curry.  Curry was back to his usual phenomenal self, hitting ridiculous contested 3-pointers. He kept hitting, and eventually the Thunder’s composure broke under the strain.  Curry finished with 36 points on 7 of 12 shooting from the 3-point arc, matching…

    Pittsburgh Wins Game 1 of Stanley Cup Final

    (Will Graves-AP/PITTSBURGH) Nick Bonino’s main job for the Pittsburgh Penguins is to get to the front of the net and create chaos.  The well-bearded forward executed perfectly in his debut in the Stanley Cup Final. Bonino took a pretty feed from the corner by Kris Letang and beat Martin Jones from in close with 2:33 remaining to lift the Penguins to a 3-2 victory over the San Jose Sharks in Game 1 on Monday night. Rookies Bryan Rust and Conor Sheary staked Pittsburgh to an early two-goal lead before the Sharks tied it in the second period on goals by Tomas…

    Rookie Rossi Wins 100th Indy 500

    Brandon Wise (CBS Sports) Rookie racer Alexander Rossi wins the Indianapolis 500 on Sunday after gambling on fuel in the final few laps. With the other leaders hitting pit road with four or five laps to go, Rossi stayed on the track, listening to his spotter, who told him to punch it and coast down the back stretch. It was Rossi’s first career win in five races. After crossing the finish line, Rossi ran out of fuel and had to be towed to victory lane. Rossi held off Carlos Munoz and Tony Kanaan late to get the win. Rossi said…
