MIAMI — Back with a blowout, and no, the Miami Heat didn’t need LeBron James to do more. Not when Mario Chalmers and everyone else did everything right. Chalmers led the charge, James broke out to finish it with a flurry and the Heat used a 33-5 run to blow away the San Antonio Spurs 103-84 on Sunday night to even the NBA Finals at one game apiece. James missed 10 of his first 13 shots and the Heat trailed by a point late in the third quarter before unleashing the lethal brand of basketball that led them to a franchise-record 66 wins this sea

A man was arrested in northern Wisconsin's Oneida County last week after using a snowmobile to flee law enforcement officers. Of course, being late May, there was no snow in sight. “I actually asked them to repeat the information” when dispatchers relayed the call, Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources Warden Pat Novesky said in a DNR news release.
