    INDEPENDENCE, Ohio — LeBron James hurts everywhere, the King of Pain. One win from taking the Cavaliers back to the NBA Finals, and one step closer to a title he covets more than any other, James leaned against a padded wall on Monday and hardly resembled basketball's most undeniable force. “I'm feeling all right,” he said, forcing a smile that showed he wasn't being entirely truthful. “I've been better, but I've been worse. I think I've been worse.

    HOUSTON — James Harden scored a playoff career-high 45 points and the Houston Rockets led from start to finish to avoid elimination in the Western Conference finals with a 128-115 victory over the Golden State Warriors in Game 4 on Monday night. The Rockets used a playoff record-tying, 45-point first quarter to build a big lead. They were up by 22 in the second quarter when Stephen Curry landed on his head in a nasty spill and missed about 12 minutes before returning. His first field goal after returning came on a 3-pointer that got Golden State within six points with less than 8 1 / 2minutes remaining.

  • Kathleen Parker: Who's the studliest of them all?

    By Kathleen Parker | Published: Tue, May 26, 2015

    WASHINGTON — Because so many Republicans want to be president — or at least pretend they do — debate organizers have decided to eliminate the least popular from the stage based on how they rank in the latest national polls. Fox News, which is hosting the first televised debate Aug. 6, and CNN, host of the second on Sept. 16, have come up with a way to limit the field. Basically, it's the popularity contest presidential elections have always been, only this time there's no attempt to masquerade it as something loftier. Fox will limit the number of contestants to the top 10. At least CNN will allow the “losers” — those polling outside the top

  • Focus on high standards should help OKC police maintain public's support

    The Oklahoman Editorial | Published: Tue, May 26, 2015

    OKLAHOMA City Manager Jim Couch has authorized a study to determine the training needs of the police department. This is an important project — the city needs quality facilities to ensure that recruits and veteran officers have the best possible training available to them. This is especially true given the profile that police departments across the country have assumed since the fatal shooting last August in Ferguson, Mo., of a black 18-year-old by a white officer. Since then we've seen high-profile use-of-force deaths in New York and Baltimore, and a deadly shooting in Tulsa in April by a reserve sheriff's deputy.

    The Oklahoman Editorial | Published: Tue, May 26, 2015

    THE three members of the Oklahoma Corporation Commission will earn their pay as they consider Oklahoma Gas and Electric Co.'s $1 billion environmental compliance and replacement generation plan. Their decision will have major implications. Due to federal Environmental Protection Agency rules for regional haze and mercury and air toxics standards, OG&E is being forced to make several changes. Those regulations will have little meaningful impact on the environment, and OG&E deserves praise for fighting them in court, although unsuccessfully. The problem facing Oklahoma now is that the regulations will impose dramatic new costs on those who use electricity.
