The Cavaliers will move forward in the NBA playoffs without Kevin Love and with their title hopes shaken. Cleveland's starting forward has been ruled out for the team's next playoff series - and perhaps longer - after dislocating his left shoulder in Sunday's win to sweep the Boston Celtics. Love, playing in his first postseason as a pro, got hurt when he got tangled with Celtics forward Kelly Olynyk while chasing a loose ball in the first quarter. It's a potentially devastating blow to the Cavs, who are likely to face Chicago in the second round.

The Baltimore Orioles' home game against the Chicago White Sox was postponed Monday night because of safety concerns after riots broke out near Camden Yards following the funeral of Freddie Gray. Baseball Commissioner Rob Manfred, at the stadium for a previously planned visit, said Tuesday night's game between the Orioles and White Sox could be moved - possibly to Nationals Park in Washington - if safety continued to be an issue. Rioters looted stores and threw rocks and bricks at Baltimore police about three miles from the stadium in the wake of the mysterious death of Gray. The Orioles announced the postponement about 40 minutes before gametime.


Supreme Court to hear historic same-sex marriage argumentsKuznetsov's goal leads Capitals past Isles 2-1 in Game 7 (Yahoo Sports)

The Supreme Court is set to hear historic arguments in cases that could make same-sex marriage the law of the land. The justices are meeting Tuesday to offer the first public indication of where they stand in the dispute over whether states can continue defining marriage as the union of a man and a woman, or whether the Constitution gives gay and lesbian couples the right to marry.

Unburdened by the catastrophes of past Game 7s littering the Washington Capitals' playoff history, rookie Evgeny Kuznetsov delivered a breathtaking, series-clinching goal that got Alex Ovechkin's seal of approval. ''Pretty sick,'' Ovechkin declared. Skating around every opponent on the ice as he swooped across from the right boards, past the slot and waited, waited, waited for the right moment to lift a rising shot over sprawling goalie Jaroslav Halak, Kuznetsov scored the go-ahead goal with 7:18 remaining, and Braden Holtby only needed to make 10 saves Monday night, leading the Capitals to a 2-1 victory that eliminated the New York Islanders in the first round. ''If you've never played hockey,'' Kuznetsov said, ''you'll never feel this.'' Joel Ward gave Washington a 1-0 lead late in the second period, and Frans Nielsen pulled New York even early in the third.


Baltimore smolders after riot over black man's police-custody deathJohnson scores 2, Lightning beat Detroit 5-2 to force Game 7 (Yahoo Sports)

People stand outside the burned community center and apartments across the street from the Southern Baptist Church in Baltimore, MarylandBy Ian Simpson and Warren Strobel BALTIMORE (Reuters) - Baltimore residents on Tuesday began cleaning up the wreckage from rioting and fires that erupted after the funeral of a 25-year-old black man who died after suffering a spinal injury in police custody. Acrid smoke hung over streets where fire crews raced to contain damage from violence that broke out just blocks from the funeral of Freddie Gray and spread through much of the poor West Baltimore neighborhood. Looters had ransacked stores, pharmacies and a shopping mall and clashed with police in riot gear in the most violent unrest in the United States since Ferguson, Missouri, was torn by gunshots and arson in late 2014. On Tuesday, volunteers in Baltimore swept up charred debris in front of a CVS pharmacy as dozens of police officers in riot gear stood by and firefighters worked to damp down the embers.

Tyler Johnson scored two goals in his latest stellar performance and the Tampa Bay Lightning held on for a 5-2 victory over the Detroit Red Wings on Monday night, forcing a Game 7 in their first-round playoff series. Johnson and Jason Garrison scored in the first period, and Johnson added another goal in the second to give the Lightning a 3-0 lead. Tomas Tatar scored twice for Detroit, but Alex Killorn answered with an unassisted goal with 5:09 remaining, and Cedric Paquette added an empty-netter. Ben Bishop made 22 saves for the Lightning, who led the NHL in goals during the season but had been struggling to score on the Red Wings and goalie Petr Mrazek in this series.


Supreme Court hears landmark gay marriage caseNets beat Hawks behind 35 from Williams, tie series at 2-2 (Yahoo Sports)

Gay marriage supporters hold a gay rights flag in front of the U.S. Supreme Court before a hearing about gay marriageBy Lawrence Hurley WASHINGTON (Reuters) - The nine justices of the Supreme Court began on Tuesday to hear arguments on whether the Constitution provides same-sex couples the right to marry, taking up a contentious social issue in what promises to be the year's most anticipated ruling. A crowd estimated at more than 1,000 people, with those favoring legalized gay marriage outnumbering those opposed, gathered outside the white marble courthouse as the nine justices started to hear 2-1/2 hours of oral arguments in the case, known as Obergefell v. Hodges. Gay marriage advocates held up signs with slogans including "Love for all" and "America is ready for freedom to marry." A smaller but vocal group of people against gay marriage held signs including one calling gay sex sinful and another stating, "Satan rules over all, the children of pride." The decision, due by the end of June, will determine whether gay marriage will be legal nationwide.

Deron Williams finally delivered the game that's expected of him, and he wasn't going to let the Nets lose it. ''We really needed to get this one to stay in the series,'' he said, ''and so it was definitely one of my better games this year for sure and probably as a Net.'' Williams rebounded from two dismal games by tying a playoff career high with 35 points, and Brooklyn pulled out a 120-115 overtime victory over the Atlanta Hawks on Monday night in Game 4. The Nets, just 38-44 in the regular season, moved two victories from becoming the sixth No. 8 seed to beat a No. 1 - only the fourth since the first round became best-of-seven. What we expect is to be challenged, and this is a great challenge for us,'' Hawks coach Mike Budenholzer said.

Why U.S. Engagement Policy Is The Correct One

Invariably, when one thinks of the efficacy of a nation’s military, the mind’s eye is drawn to the ability of that country to deliver a \"warhead onto the forehead\" of their enemies. Indeed, owing to the Pentagon’s slick packaging of the First Gulf War, modern conflict, in the American mind, became synonymous with high-tech toys, grainy videos of successful missile shots, and a quick resolution of hostilities.

Living Wages Are A Global Problem

The recent protests for an increased minimum wage are part of a larger global protest. The purpose is the same for low wage earners all over the world; increase wages to match the cost of living, and allow workers to form unions if desired and needed. The global protest has gained media attention all over the world, but critics claim that is the only accomplishment the movement will have.

Ukraine: Not What It Seems

After tense days of fighting this week, people in Ukraine are mourning the dead and celebrating the removal of President Victor Yanukovych from power. The final struggle that began on February 18, was the bloodiest endured by the protesters of Euromaidan. By February 22 the fighting was over.

In a Five to Four Decision, Voting Just Got Harder

In a five to four decision along party lines, the Supreme Court ruled on the controversial Shelby County v. Holder case. The ruling, believed by many sets the nation back decades in Civil Rights, while others see it as the fault of Congress dropping the ball on updating the act when it should have years ago.

Coup Or Civil War In Egypt

The day after new protests erupted in Egypt the military in a show of support presented an ultimatum to Mohamed Morsi and the Muslim Brotherhood-led government. Morsi was to step down from power and meet all of the demands of the Egyptian people, or face being removed by the military on Wednesday. As the ultimatum deadline draws closer in Egypt, Morsi refuses to leave, insisting that parliamentary elections are needed before he should be removed, and that he doesn't have permission from the United States to remove himself from power. Most recently he stated he will pay with his life to preserve the sanctity of the ballot box.
