SHANGHAI (AP) — Given how he finished last season, Sebastian Vettel's start to the 2014 F1 campaign has been humbling, to say the least.

Last year, the German reeled off nine straight victories, matching the record set by Alberto Ascari in 1952 and '53, to capture his fourth consecutive world championship with ease.

The switch to six-cylinder turbo engines and the introduction of new fuel-saving regulations in the offseason, however, have brought a...

PORTLAND, Ore. (AP) — Trail Blazers coach Terry Stotts expects guard Damian Lillard to make a quick adjustment to playoff basketball.

"I think he'll be a seasoned veteran five minutes into Game 1," Stotts said.

The second-year starter has always played beyond his years.

Last season Lillard ran away with the league's Rookie of the Year race, leading all first-year players with a 19-point scoring average. He also averaged 6.1...

BOSTON (AP) — At one end of the ice, Jimmy Howard made his best save of the game. At the other, Pavel Datsyuk scored the only goal.

All within 30 seconds.

Datsyuk's goal with 3:01 left gave the Detroit Red Wings a 1-0 win in their playoff opener as they grabbed home-ice advantage away from the top-seeded Boston Bruins on Friday night.

"Sometimes when the upper seed gets the upper hand right away, you start questioning whether you...
