ROOF OF BUCKS’ OLD HOME DE­MOL­ISHED

Dozens of small, si­mul­ta­ne­ous ex­plo­sions brought down the steel roof of the Bradley Cen­ter, the for­mer home of the Mil­wau­kee Bucks, in a con­trolled de­mo­li­tion Sun­day that left some de­bris scat­tered in the street.

The Bradley Cen­ter closed last sum­mer, and the Bucks moved next door to the $524 mil­lion Fis­erv Fo­rum. The NBA team bid the 30-year-old arena a fond farewell in a se­ries of tweets.

Rap­tors 140, Wizards 138 (2OT): Serge Ibaka hit a 3-pointer with 15 sec­onds left in the sec­ond over­time, and Toronto sur­vived in Wash­ing­ton to earn its fifth straight win. Six­ers 108, Knicks 105: Ben Sim­mons fell an as­sist short of a triple-dou­ble with 20 points and 22 re­bounds, Joel Em­biid scored 26 points and Philadel­phia es­caped from New York with a vic­tory.

NO­TABLE

Bulls: Bobby Por­tis’ run-in with Kevin Du­rant on Fri­day left the Chicago for­ward with a sprained el­bow and a feel­ing that he is be­ing treated dif­fer­ently by the of­fi­cials be­cause of his rep­u­ta­tion formed after a 2017 prac­tice al­ter­ca­tion with Nikola Mirotic. Por­tis and Du­rant got tan­gled up on a screen, and Por­tis be­lieves the War­riors star grabbed his right arm and pur­posely pulled it down. Mav­er­icks: J.J. Barea won’t play again this sea­son and will un­dergo surgery Mon­day after rup­tur­ing his right Achilles ten­don Fri­day in Dal­las’ vic­tory against Min­nesota.
