    RIO DE JANEIRO  — The blowouts are over. The Olympics are under way.

    After nothing but pushovers this summer, the U.S. men’s basketball team faced someone who pushed back.

    “This is the real world now and that’s good for us,” coach Mike Krzyzewski said.

    Finally tested, Carmelo Anthony and Kyrie Irving had the answers.

  • Saul good, man

    ALBUQUERQUE — The pitch was a near-perfect strike, landing crisply in the mitt of the Isotopes catcher.

    Most of the 10,110 fans — many of whom turned out to catch a glimpse of “Better Call Saul” star Bob Odenkirk — roared in approval.

    Odenkirk’s ceremonial first pitch proved a good omen for the Albuquerque sluggers on “Better Call Saul” Night Saturday at Isotopes Park. The host Topes, playing host to Sacramento, went on a late-inning surge and claimed a 9-2 verdict the TV lawyer would’ve been proud of.

The league anticipates upwards of 300 to 350 in time for the first weekend of games Sept. 10-11.

    RIO DE JANEIRO  — In a hallway beneath the Olympic Aquatics Stadium, Missy Franklin was surrounded by the media after her first race of the Rio de Janeiro Games.

    Until Katie Ledecky walked by.

    At least half the reporters bolted away from Franklin while she was in mid-answer Monday, all of them eager to fire a few questions at Ledecky.

    It was the clearest sign yet of the changing of the guard on the U.S. women’s swim team.
