Getty Images In perhaps the wildest finish in a playoff game in recent memory, the Phoenix Suns climbed out to a commanding 2-0 series lead after Jae Crowder executed a perfect out-of-bounds alley-oop pass to DeAndre Ayton for a game-winning dunk. The Clippers had the win in the palm of their hands, but two missed free throws from Paul George after a Suns turnover allowed Phoenix to get off the game-winning shot. It's the latest gut punch to the Clippers, who still are unsure if or when Kawhi Leonard will be able to return in this series. But with the next two games on their home floor, and their penchant for storming back after falling into a hole, this series isn't over just yet. Here's everything you need to know about Game 3 between the Suns and Clippers.

Off-spinner Ravichandran Ashwin reduced New Zealand to 44-2 by removing openers Tom Latham and Devon Conway to the delight of India fans. But New Zealand captain Kane Williamson and Ross Taylor, the team's most-experienced batsmen, settled any lingering nerves in an unbroken stand of 96. Williamson, who won plaudits for the sporting way he dealt with defeat in the 2019 World Cup final, was 52 not out. It was only the second fifty of the match after New Zealand opener Devon Conway's . . .

India captain Virat Kohli was adamant that their decision to stick to playing three pacers in the World Test Championship final was the correct one as they fielded their "best combination" in the defeat against New Zealand . India had announced their side a day before the final was supposed to start, but rain washed out Day 1, and there were questions on whether India should have played with another fast bowler, given the conditions would provide more assistance to them. "We've been successful with this combination in different conditions. We thought this was our best combination, and we had batting depth as well, and if there was more game time, the spinners would have come into the game more as well," Kohli said after the match in Southampton. He also congratulated New Zealand for forcing a result in a match marred by rain. "Big congratulations to Kane (Williamson) and the whole team. They showed great consistency and heart to pull out a result in just over three days, . . .
