Heat scorch Spurs to level Finals series

Mario Chalmers had a game-high 19 points and LeBron James finished with 17 points and seven assists as the Miami Heat routed the San Antonio Spurs 103-84 in Game Two of the NBA finals on Sunday.
Miami went on a 14-3 run to close the third quarter and break open a tight game, then seized command with a sustained double-digit lead in the fourth to level the best-of-seven series at one game each.
James, who had just 18 points in Game One, finished with a 2013 post-season low again but he scored nine of his points in the fourth quarter for the Heat who rebounded from a stunning 92-88 loss at home in Game One.
Chris Bosh finished with 12 points and 10 rebounds and veteran Ray Allen came off the bench to score 13 points for Miami, who have not lost back-to-back games since early January and haven’t lost consecutive games at home all season.
Danny Green had 17 points, including making five-of-five from three point range. But Tim Duncan finished with just nine points and 11 rebounds for the Spurs, who are 7-2 on the road in the playoffs.
The series now switches to San Antonio for three games, beginning with Game Three on Tuesday.
Miami outscored the Spurs 53-39 in the second half as they closed the third on a 14-3 run to take a 75-65 lead into the final period.
Green got going early in the opening quarter, scoring the first nine points for San Antonio.

English clinches st jude classic golf tourney
Memphis (USA), June 10: Harris English won the St Jude Classic on Sunday for his first PGA Tour title, birdieing two of the final three holes to hold off Phil Mickelson and Scott Stallings by two strokes.
The 23-year-old American in his second year on tour survived a final round where he had six birdies and five bogeys to shoot a 1-under 69. He finished at 12-under 268.
English made a 5-foot birdie putt on no.16 to tie Stallings for the lead, but Stallings bogeyed no.18 to give English the lead to himself. English made a 17-foot birdie putt on no.17, and two-putted no.18 to pick up the winner’s check of $1,026,000.
English became the fourth player to win the event in his first start since the tournament moved to TPC Southwind in 1989, and the second straight after Dustin Johnson a year ago.
Mickelson shot a 67, and Stallings had a 68. Mickelson birdied 13 and 16, but just missed a birdie on the par-4 17th. — AFP

I want to begin with a little story that was told to me by a leading executive at Aptech. He was exercising in a gym with a lot of younger people.

Shekhar Kapur’s Bandit Queen didn’t make the cut. Neither did Shaji Karun’s Piravi, which bagged 31 international awards.
