After a rough start to the season, the Toronto Raptors appear to be finding their way. Kyle Lowry set the tone with 23 points Monday and the Toronto defence held Mavericks star Luka Doncic in check as the Raptors defeated Dallas 116-93 for their third straight win. “I think we’re just getting better,” said Lowry. “I think we’re just getting more confident in ourselves. I think we’re getting more comfortable with what we’re trying to do offensively and defensively.”
Turner Sports broadcaster Casey Stern is suing parent company WarnerMedia for discrimination, alleging that Turner removed him from his roles as an MLB and NBA studio host and elected not to pick up his expiring contract in retaliation for missing assignments to deal with the abuse of his children by his ex-wife and her partner. As of 2019, Stern was Turner’s #2 NBA studio host behind Ernie Johnson, its #3 NCAA Tournament host behind Johnson and Greg Gumbel, and its lead MLB studio host. He has since been replaced by Adam Lefkoe, Adam Zucker and Johnson in those respective roles. The lawsuit alleges that the lost assignments coincide with Turner learning about his family issues.
