BKN--TAKING A CHARGE
OAKLAND, Calif. _ Toronto guard Kyle Lowry planted his feet and braced for contact with Milwaukee Bucks big man Giannis Antetokounmpo barreling down on him. Lowry, one of the best at taking a charge, absorbed the punishment and drew a foul against the 6-foot-11 Antetokounmpo. These days, not everybody is willing to do what Lowry does in the fast-paced, open-floor NBA game. Spurs coach Gregg Popovich won’t argue that sentiment. Golden State defensive leader Draymond Green thrives in the action, but he knows firsthand about calls not going his way. Green failed to get the favorable whistle in the final minute of an overtime road loss against Houston in the last round. By Janie McCauley. SENT: 1,230 words, with photos.
FARMINGDALE, N.Y. _ Defending champion Brooks Koepka, coming off a record-tying 63, had a one-shot lead going into the second round of the PGA Championship. Tiger Woods was nine behind. By Golf Writer Doug Ferguson. UPCOMING: 800 words, photos.
