The Toronto Raptors' DeMar DeRozan had one of the best dunks of the year Sunday. Unfortunately for the Detroit Pistons, it was at Kyle Singler's expense.

DeRozan finished with 30 points, helping guide Toronto to a 116-107 win over Detroit.

Phil Ivey, one of the world's top poker players, is being sued by the Borgata Hotel Casino and Spa in Atlantic City, N.J. The casino accuses the poker star of noticing a defect in the cards being played during a baccarat session and parlaying that into a $9.6 million haul back in 2012, per Gillian Mohney of ABC's World News (via ABCNews.com).  

John Brennan of NorthJersey.com provided a little more insight into the situation:

Brennan also reported that the casino employed the Gemaco playing cards and automatic shuffler that were used during the baccarat games in which it lost millions:

This isn't the first time that Ivey, the self-proclaimed Tiger Woods and Michael Jordan of poker, has been in hot water for engaging in "edge sorting." Mayfair club Crockfords, a London-based casino, withheld £7.8 million from him after it believed he used the tactic to work the system and gain an unfair advantage over the house in baccarat, per the Daily Mail's Ian Gallagher.


During Sunday's game against the New York Mets, it's safe to say that the Los Angeles Angels were feeling it early.

With one out in the bottom of the first inning against Mets pitcher Bartolo Colon, Mike Trout got things rolling with a solo shot to tie things up.

Right after that, Albert Pujols hit his third homer of the season, as he's been looking like his old self to start the year.

And if that wasn't enough, Raul Ibanez made sure to add another round-tripper, giving the Angels back-to-back-to-back homers in the first inning.


Oklahoma City Thunder rookie center Steven Adams has a tough matchup Sunday afternoon going against Roy Hibbert of the Indiana Pacers, and it's safe to say he's working up a sweat.

During the game, Adams decided to wipe off some of his face sweat on Hibbert while at the free-throw line. Adams isn't known for doing anything crazy while on the floor, but this is pretty funny.

Hockey is a huge sport in Minnesota, and when the University of Minnesota lost the NCAA Division I national championship 7-4 to Union College, supporters got a little rowdy.

One local reporter was on air in Dinkytown, Minneapolis, when a number of fans overwhelmed him, forcing him to send it back to the studio.

Not much went right for the New York Knicks this season, and this "highlight" montage seems to sum it up. (Warning: NSFW language.)

"One Shining Moment" is usually reserved for the NCAA tournament, but with all the lowlights of the 2014 Knicks season, it's only fitting here.

Better luck next year, Knicks.

After signing with the San Diego Padres, outfielder Jeff Francoeur found himself in Triple-A with the club's affiliate, the El Paso Chihuahuas. 

What awaited him there was an elaborate and time-consuming prank. 

The entire team convinced the nine-year MLB veteran that pitcher Jorge Reyes was deaf. The trainers, players and coaches were all in on the month-long hoax, and they pulled it off to perfection. 

What came after was a hilarious short film exposing the truth. To Francoeur's credit, he took it all in stride and even shared a few laughs.

David Ortiz caused quite the stir when he took a selfie with President Obama during the Boston Red Sox's visit to the White House recently. 

And Saturday Night Live wasted no time getting in on the fun with Kenan Thompson playing the role of Big Papi in this amazing skit. 

Ortiz's personalty is larger than life, and SNL nailed it.

When you hit a walk-off home run, there isn't much else to say. However, Philadelphia Phillies shortstop Jimmy Rollins is never one to bite his tongue. 

Rollins knew he got all of Marlins reliever Dan Jennings' 2-2 pitch and turned to his heckler with a few choice words.

Per Michael Radano of MLB.com, Rollins had the last laugh: "Some fan in the stands popping off. I don't know where he was, but he was close enough to yell and [tick] me off, honestly. [He said] something pretty ignorant. But it worked."

Rollins' 10th-inning walk-off homer gave Philly the 5-4 victory over the Marlins, and it was the second walk-off of his career. He finished 3-for-5 with two RBI.

Boxing promoter Bob Arum never shies away from giving his opinion.

That much was evident in the wee hours of Sunday morning, when the Top Rank CEO gave his thoughts on a potential matchup between his client, Manny Pacquiao (56-5-2, 38 KOs), and undefeated champion Floyd Mayweather Jr (45-0-0, 26 KOs). 

Arum was not satisfied with Pacquiao’s revenge victory over Timothy Bradley and isn't pleased with the state of boxing. He also discussed a potential Mayweather vs. Pacquiao showdown.

According to Sports Illustrated's Chris Mannix, Arum started by noting the MGM’s decision to put up signs promoting Mayweather’s bout with Marcos Maidana (35-3-0, 31 KOs) on May 3:
