Clippers take NBA playoffs lead on controversial no-call

With the first week of the NBA playoffs in the books, it looks like there's a good chance that the Golden State Warriors won't make it to the second round – yet the Atlanta Hawks just might.

The Joy of Six: extreme sporting conditions

Everyone has experienced that crushing silence that comes when a conversation with someone you don't really know or like is grinding to an inevitable halt. You should get up and leave while there's still time to save yourself but instead of making your excuses, you just sit there in silence, a silence that lasts five seconds, then 10, then a minute and then an hour, a silence which can only mean one thing: no matter how much you try to resist it, one of you is going to mention the weather.
