After taking a digital beating following his cramping issues in Game 1, LeBron James came back with a vengeance last night in San Antonio. James led the game with 35 points and had 10 rebounds in Miami's 98-96 win, showing no signs of the issues that caused him to miss the closing moments of Game 1. "What happened on Thursday was Thursday. My whole focus was how I was going to try to help this team even this up and just try to make some plays," James said, and that's exactly what he did. With Miami down in the second quarter, the King erupted and got them back on track. Despite the loss and coming up on the receiving end of a nasty flagrant foul, Tony Parker had a noteworthy game with 7 assists, putting him past Michael Jordan at eighth place on the all-time playoff assist leaders list. With the series evened up at 1-1, it'll be a battle for control in Game 3, which tips off from Miami on Tuesday at 9PM.

On Saturday, Maria Sharapova stopped a red-hot Simona Halep to capture her second French Open women's singles title and fifth overall major title. But yesterday, there was yet another chapter written in the epic Djokovic-Nadal rivalry, with Nadal securing his fifth straight French Open win and improving his rivalry record to 23-19 with a final of 3-6, 7-5, 6-2, 6-4. With no modern era player coming close to Rafa's dominance in France, it remains to be seen who will stop his unparalleled streak.
