NBA Finals. The Magic absolutely blew an opportunity to tie this series up 2-2 by not being able to hold a lead in the second half, not making it’s free throws and not even bothering to contest a three-point shot near the end of regulation as the Lakers beat the Magic 99-91 in overtime in game 4 of the series, going up 3-1 and essentially putting this series out of reach for Orlando. Derek Fisher hit the a tying three-pointer with 4.6 seconds left that was barely contested, sending the game to overtime, the first time since 1984 that two Finals games have went to OT. Dwight Howard was a beast everywhere but the free throw line, with 16 points, 21 rebounds and an NBA Finals-record 9 blocked shots, but was an atrocious 6-14 from the stripe – just terrible. Kobe Bryant had 32 points, 8 assists and 7 rebounds in the win. Hedo Turkoglu scored 25 for Orlando. [NBA.com]

MLB Roundup. Suck on this, blogger guy! Raul Ibanez hit a three-run homer in the 10th inning, propelling the Phillies to a 6-3 victory over the Mets. It’s now nine wins in a row for the Red Sox against the Yankees after their 4-3 comeback victory. Geoff Bloom had the game-winning hit for the second consecutive game, leading Astros over the Cubs 2-1 in 13 innings. Shin-Soo Choo single to center that hit a seagull (!) drove in Mark DeRosa in Cleveland’s 4-3, 10 inning victory over Kansas City. [MLB.com Scoreboard]

PGA Golf. Playing for the first time on the Tour since finding out his wife had breast cancer, Phil Mickelson shot a 2-under 68 in the first round of the St. Jude Classic, putting him four strokes behind leader Grian Gay. Other notables include Jose Maria Olazabal, who is battling arthritis pain, fired a 4-under 66 and John Daly, who is attempting yet another comeback, had his putter fail him, firing a 2-over 72.

If I had a nickel for every time I got baked after eating weed at a dog park, I’d have…ummm…wait – what was I saying? An 11-year-old Labrador Retriever mix named Jack got stoned out of his gourd after eating some pot he found at a Seattle dog park. His owner said the dog’s eyes were glossed over and he couldn’t walk. The dog ended up okay after his owner made him some doggie nachos, put on The Lord of the Rings trilogy and gave Jack time to just mellow out, man. [AOL News/AP]
