SALT LAKE CITY — Bojan Bogdanovic scored 23 points and Donovan Mitchell added 22 as the Utah Jazz beat the struggling Oklahoma City Thunder 106-96 on Tuesday night. Luguentz Dort scored career-high 42 points and Moses Brown had 12 points and 15 rebounds for the Thunder, who have lost seven in a row and 10 of 11. Bogdanovic, who scored a season-high 33 points in his last game, left his familiar spot on the perimeter and repeatedly took the ball to the basket. He finished with a season-high 10-for-10 shooting from the free throw line. In pain, Bogdanovic held his right wrist after getting knocked to the floor in the third quarter. Surgery on that wrist ended his season before the bubble last season. But, Bogdanovic kept playing and was a key to Utah’s 66-38 scoring advantage in the second and third quarters. Mitchell, who averaged over 40 points in his previous four games, didn’t need to be nearly as dominant against the Thunder. Rudy Gobert had 13 points, 14 rebounds and seven blocks for Utah, which held the Thunder to 38.7% shooting. The Jazz used a 12-0 run after a 55-53 halftime edge to blow open a close game. Mitchell made consecutive 3-pointers to cap the run. The Thunder never got within single digits until the final couple minutes, as Utah pushed the lead to as many as 25 points. Mike Conley, who rested the first half of the back-to-back when the Jazz had their 24-game home win streak snapped, had 15 points and a season-high 14 assists for league-leading Utah (41-14). Georges Niang made his first start of the season and the second of his five-year career for the short-handed Jazz and scored 18 points, including six 3-pointers,. He had a season-high 10 rebounds. Coming into the game, The Thunder’s point differential over their six-game losing streak was 28.5 points per loss, the worst mark for any team in 17 years. Known for his defensive prowess rather than his shooting, Dort scored 18 points — a career high in a quarter – to power the Thunder to a 31-14 lead in the first period. Dort looked unstoppable in his second game after missing seven contests in the concussion protocol. The Jazz paid more attention to him in the middle quarters. He finished with a flurry to make the margin respectable. The game was the third in four nights for the Jazz, who have won nine straight on zero days rest and are 10-1 overall on the second game of back-to-back sets. TIP-INS Thunder: Aleksej Pokusevski (sore arm), Shai Gilgeous-Alexander (sore foot) and Mike Muscala (sprained ankle) missed the game. … Dort scored his previous career high of 26 points against the Jazz in December. He went 9 of- 1 from the field and 5 of 7 from 3-point range in that game. … At Bazley’s urging, OKC coach Mark Daigneault successfully challenged a foul on Bogdanovic’s 3-point shot. Jazz: Royce O’Neale (rest), Joe Ingles (sore knee) and Jordan Clarkson (sprained ankle) were Utah regulars who sat out. … Bogdanovic made a season high 10 free throws on 10 attempts, and Jarrell Brantley had a season-best 10 points. … Gobert had four blocks in the fourth quarter.

Taiwan said on Wednesday its chip companies will adhere to U.S. rules after Washington added seven Chinese supercomputing entities last week to an economic blacklist and after a Taipei-based chipmaker halted orders from one of the entities named. The U.S. Commerce Department said the seven Chinese entities were "involved with building supercomputers used by China's military actors, its destabilizing military modernisation efforts, and/or weapons of mass destruction programs." Companies or others listed on the U.S. Entity List are required to apply for licenses from the Commerce Department that face tough scrutiny when they seek permission to receive items from U.S. suppliers.
Wilson Ramos hit two home runs and Renato Núñez and rookie Akil Baddoo each homered for the second straight game as the Detroit Tigers slugged their way to an 8-2 win over the Houston Astros on Tuesday night. Nomar Mazara also homered to give the Tigers a season-high five long balls as they won their second straight following a four-game skid.

CHICAGO — AL Cy Young Award winner Shane Bieber pitched three-hit ball over nine innings for Cleveland while Lucas Giolito nearly matched him before the Indians broke through in the 10th to beat the Chicago White Sox 2-0 on Tuesday night. The matchup between All-Star aces sure lived up to its billing. Bieber struck out 11 and has fanned 35 in his first three starts of the season for the second straight year. Nolan Ryan set the record with 37 in 1973 and Gerrit Cole had 36 in 2018. Giolito also allowed only three hits and fanned eight. He was pulled after issuing his second walk to begin the eighth inning. Bieber walked one. Garrett Crochet (0-2) came on in the 10th for Chicago and catcher Yasmani Grandal interfered with Josh Naylor leading off, putting runners on the corners. After pinch-hitter Yu Chang flied out, Roberto Perez drove in a run with an RBI single. Pinch-hitter Amed Rosario added an RBI double. Bieber (1-1) struck out at least eight in his 15th straight game, breaking Corey Kluber’s club record in 2017. James Karinchak worked the 10th for his first save, retiring Jake Lamb on a game-ending fly to the right-field warning track. Eddie Rosario had two of Cleveland’s three hits against Giolito — a double in the second and an infield single in the fourth. RACIST TWEETS Chang shared some anti-Asian tweets he received after making a throwing error in the ninth inning that allowed the winning run to score in the Indians' loss Monday night. Chang, who is Taiwanese, posted some of the tweets on his account while asking for tolerance. Soon after, he received an outpouring of support from Indians fans and others. TRAINER’S ROOM Indians: Pérez apparently got crossed up by Karinchak and got hit in his right ring finger by a pitch. Pérez rose as if he was expecting a high pitch. UP NEXT The four-game series continues with LHP Carlos Rodón (1-0, 0.00 ERA) pitching for Chicago after being scratched from Monday's start because of an upset stomach and RHP Zach Plesac (1-1, 1.38) getting the ball for Cleveland. With Rodón ill, Dallas Keuchel pitched into the sixth inning Monday after having his turn moved up two days. ___ More AP MLB: https://apnews.com/MLB and https://twitter.com/AP_Sports Andrew Seligman, The Associated Press

TORONTO — Milan Lucic made it clear his 1,000th game in the NHL wouldn't mean as much without Calgary securing a much-needed victory. Johnny Gaudreau wound up delivering the goods against their former teammate in emphatic style. The winger scored 36 seconds into overtime as the Flames defeated the Maple Leafs 3-2 on Tuesday in the ninth and final meeting between the clubs this season. "Personally, it's a great achievement," the bruising Lucic said of his milestone. "It makes it that much better when you get a big win." Gaudreau took a pass from Elias Lindholm on a 2-on-1 in the extra period before deking to the forehand for his 15th goal of the campaign on David Rittich, who made his Toronto debut after being acquired from Calgary in a trade late Sunday. "Lindy does a really good job of handling that puck off his skates," added Lucic, who's also logged 124 playoff contests in his career. "Once he makes that pass through to Johnny, he's almost automatic. "Beauty by him." Gaudreau, who also had an assist, said the Flames went through a couple shootouts in practice leading up to Monday's trade deadline when Rittich was still with the team. "I normally don't go to my forehand," he said. "I think I fooled him a little bit." Lindholm and Juuso Valimaki scored in regulation for Calgary (18-21-3), while Jacob Markstrom made 24 saves as the Flames picked up consecutive wins for the first time since mid-March ahead of Wednesday's trip to Montreal for a game against the Canadiens — the team they're chasing for the North Division's final playoff spot. "A great teammate," Gaudreau said of Lucic. "A guy that a lot of us in our locker room look up to. To be able to be part of his 1,000th game and get a win for him was a great night." Zach Hyman, with a goal and an assist, and Alexander Kerfoot replied for Toronto (28-11-4). Rittich, who was still mostly sporting Calgary gear, stopped 25 shots. "It was tough," Rittich said of playing his old mates. "I've got some (life-long) friends there." "Beautiful city, great guys," he added of Toronto. "A bunch of beauties." John Tavares had two assists as the Leafs lost for the second time in as many nights after falling 4-2 in Montreal on Monday to snap a 9-0-1 run. Toronto finished 6-2-1 against Calgary in 2021 and sits seven points up on the Winnipeg Jets, who visit Scotiabank Arena on Thursday, for first in the North. "He's been great, loves to chat," Tavares said of Rittich, who gave Jack Campbell a breather. "Quite the circumstances the last 48 hours for him. Probably the main reason we got a point." The deal for Rittich — Toronto shipped a 2022 third-round the other way — was just one of the trades made ahead of the deadline by Leafs general manager Kyle Dubas, whose other moves included acquiring forwards Nick Foligno and Riley Nash from Columbus, and defenceman Ben Hutton from Anaheim. Rittich, who blanked his new team 3-0 on the same sheet of ice Feb. 22 and had a .941 save percentage in four starts against the Leafs in 2021, flew on the Flames' charter to Toronto on Monday because of COVID-19 restrictions related to commercial travel. "It was OK, a lot of chirps," Rittich said of the strange circumstances. "Some guys didn't hold back. "But at least I had a chance to say goodbye to all of them." The visitors snapped a 1-1 tie 34 seconds into the second period with Mitch Marner in the box for tripping when Lindholm wired his 11th. Markstrom made his best save of the night early in the third with a desperation effort at full stretch on Marner, but the Leafs got their equalizer at 6:17 when Kerfoot scored his seventh. Toronto's power play — an inexplicable 1 for 36 over the last 15 games — got its first chance midway through the period when Rasmus Andersson was assessed a double-minor for high-sticking, but couldn't generate much of anything until Tavares hit the post late in the man advantage. Calgary, which beat the Edmonton Oilers 5-0 on Saturday to snap a 1-8-0 slide before dealing centre Sam Bennett to Florida ahead of the deadline, opened the scoring at 4:37 of the first when Lucic found a wide-open Valimaki for his second. Lucic, who took a couple solo laps in warmups usually reserved for rookies, got an ovation from both benches during the first TV timeout to acknowledge his 1,000th game. "It wasn't really a thing when I was a rookie to get the single lap," Lucic said. "I never got to do it, so we thought no better time to do it than tonight." Toronto got even at 10:37 when Morgan Rielly's shot off the end boards bounced to Hyman for him to pop his 15th upstairs on Markstrom. Rielly's assist was the 300th point of his career, making him the sixth Toronto defenceman to reach that mark. Lucic and Scott Sabourin, who made his Leafs debut and played his first NHL game since March 11, 2020, dropped the gloves off the ensuing faceoff, with the Flames winger needing repairs for a cut above his right eye. "It was kind of funny," Lucic said. "When I saw he was in the lineup, I knew there was probably a 100 per cent chance that he was going to ask me to fight. They had just scored and I said yes." "I congratulated him on his thousand games," Sabourin said. "The next question was, 'Hey do you want one?' "He was nice enough to oblige." And the Flames did the same to get two points on Lucic's big night. "It just adds so much more to it, especially when we're desperate for wins," said the 33-year-old. "We get a big win like that against the best team in our division. We fought hard all night long. "Kudos for my teammates and coaches for stepping up and getting the win to add onto the milestone."

The Saskatchewan Health Authority is warning people who were recently at a Saskatoon bar that they may have been exposed to at least one person infected with a coronavirus variant of concern. The SHA issued the public exposure notice Tuesday at around 7 p.m., just hours after the province hosted its latest COVID-19 news conference. The bar was not mentioned at the news conference, though Dr. Saqib Shahab, Saskatchewan's chief medical health officer, warned that Saskatoon was "on the cusp" of having a larger number of variant cases. Customers who were at Sports on Tap during the following hours are being told to immediately self-isolate for 14 days: April 5, 6 to 10 p.m. April 9, 11:25 a.m. to 5:25 p.m. April 10, 11:45 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. One or more people was at the bar during those hours while infectious, according to the release. People are to call the 811 HealthLine or their doctor's office if they develop symptoms. Sports on Tap is located just southeast of Prairieland Park, which is the site of a drive-thru and appointment-only COVID-19 vaccine clinic. Avoid unnecessary travel, SHA says In its release, the SHA cited an "increased risk of COVID-19 variants of concern in Saskatoon" and reminded residents to follow long-established precautions such as keeping two metres distance from other people. The health authority urged people to stick to their immediate household bubbles, as people province-wide are now required to do under a tightened rule added to Saskatchewan's public health orders earlier on Tuesday. The release also went one step further in urging Saskatoon residents to avoid unnecessary travel. Prior to that point, health officials had only called for restricted travel in and out of Regina, Weyburn and Moose Jaw. The SHA also recommended that people get vaccinated when they are eligible to do so. Saskatoon had a cumulative 302 variants of concern on Tuesday, up from 181 the day before.
The defense for a former police officer charged in George Floyd's death challenged the heart of the case against the officer, calling a use-of-force expert who testified that Derek Chauvin was justified in pinning Floyd and said it might have gone easier if the Black man had been “resting comfortably” on the pavement. Taking the stand Tuesday at Chauvin's murder trial, Barry Brodd, a former Santa Rosa, California, officer, stoutly defended Chauvin's actions, even as a prosecutor pounded away at the witness, banging the lectern at one point during cross-examination and growing incredulous over Brodd's use of the “resting comfortably" phrase. “It’s easy to sit and judge ... an officer’s conduct," Brodd testified.
