Butler set a playoff career-high for the second straight game with 31 points, and the Chicago Bulls beat the Milwaukee Bucks 91-82 on Monday night to take a 2-0 lead in their first-round series. After scoring 25 points in Game 1, Butler trumped that with another terrific performance. Noah grabbed 19 rebounds and the third-seeded Bulls dominated on the glass 64-48 while taking a commanding lead in the series.

Fired up for the first NHL playoff game in town in 19 years, Winnipeg Jets fans booed Corey Perry off the ice in warmups and cheered every icing call against the Anaheim Ducks. They went silent when the Ducks scored. The raucous ''whiteout'' crowd left on a somber note when Anaheim's Rickard Rakell scored at 5:12 of overtime to beat the Jets 5-4 Monday night at MTS Centre and take a 3-0 series lead. ''I personally have never had anything like that before, and we certainly fed off the energy,'' Jets winger Lee Stempniak said.

Golden State Warriors coach Steve Kerr likes to say his team teeters on ''explosive and careless'' basketball, pulling off an astonishing play one moment and a perplexing one the next. Klay Thompson scored 26 points, Stephen Curry had 22 points and six assists and the Warriors regrouped from an early deficit to beat the New Orleans Pelicans 97-87 and take a 2-0 lead in their first-round playoff series. ''It's what makes us who we are.'' The top-seeded Warriors fell behind by 13 points in the first quarter after a strong start by Anthony Davis and Eric Gordon quieted an announced sellout crowd of 19,596 wearing golden yellow shirts. Game 3 of the best-of-seven series is Thursday night in New Orleans.


U.S. man sentenced to 18 years for Bali suitcase murderRangers shut down Penguins 2-1 to reclaim momentum (Yahoo Sports)

American couple Tommy Schaefer and Heather Mack leave prison with their baby for a Denpasar court in BaliAn Indonesian court on Tuesday sentenced a U.S. man to 18 years in prison for the murder of his girlfriend's mother, whose body was found stuffed into a suitcase on the resort island of Bali. Tommy Schaefer, from the Chicago area, was arrested with his girlfriend, Heather Mack, last August after staff at a luxury hotel discovered the body of Mack's mother, Sheila von Wiese-Mack, in an abandoned suitcase in a taxi. Schaefer was charged with premeditated murder after he said in court he had killed Wiese-Mack in self-defense.

There is nothing poetic or necessarily pretty about the way the New York Rangers play, particularly on the road. It's a formula that led New York to the league's best record, one they returned to while restoring order in their first-round series with the Pittsburgh Penguins. Choking off the passing lanes and the open ice where Penguins' stars Sidney Crosby and Evgeni Malkin thrive, New York built an early lead behind goals from Carl Hagelin and Chris Kreider then held on for a 2-1 win in Game 3 on Monday night to take a 2-1 series lead. Game 4 is Wednesday in Pittsburgh.


Struggling to remember the name of Jeb Bush's super PAC? Here's whyEagles sign quarterback Tim Tebow to 1-year contract (Yahoo Sports)

Former Florida Governor and probable 2016 Republican presidential candidate Jeb Bush speaks at the First in the Nation Republican Leadership Conference in NashuaBy Emily Flitter NEW YORK (Reuters) - It's hard to remember whether Republican presidential hopeful Jeb Bush's super PAC is called America Rising or Right to Rise. The Bush super PAC is in fact Right to Rise. America Rising is another political action committee, unconnected to Bush, that plans to raise and spend unlimited sums of money, although it does share one goal in common with Right to Rise: to defeat Hillary Clinton's bid for the Democratic nomination in 2016. They also share some thematic similarity with the group supporting another Republican presidential hopeful, Wisconsin Governor Scott Walker (Our American Revival), which isn't too different from groups advocating for potential candidates New Jersey Governor Chris Christie (America Leads) and former Arkansas Governor Mike Huckabee (Pursuing America's Greatness).

Why U.S. Engagement Policy Is The Correct One

Invariably, when one thinks of the efficacy of a nation’s military, the mind’s eye is drawn to the ability of that country to deliver a \"warhead onto the forehead\" of their enemies. Indeed, owing to the Pentagon’s slick packaging of the First Gulf War, modern conflict, in the American mind, became synonymous with high-tech toys, grainy videos of successful missile shots, and a quick resolution of hostilities.

Living Wages Are A Global Problem

The recent protests for an increased minimum wage are part of a larger global protest. The purpose is the same for low wage earners all over the world; increase wages to match the cost of living, and allow workers to form unions if desired and needed. The global protest has gained media attention all over the world, but critics claim that is the only accomplishment the movement will have.

Ukraine: Not What It Seems

After tense days of fighting this week, people in Ukraine are mourning the dead and celebrating the removal of President Victor Yanukovych from power. The final struggle that began on February 18, was the bloodiest endured by the protesters of Euromaidan. By February 22 the fighting was over.

In a Five to Four Decision, Voting Just Got Harder

In a five to four decision along party lines, the Supreme Court ruled on the controversial Shelby County v. Holder case. The ruling, believed by many sets the nation back decades in Civil Rights, while others see it as the fault of Congress dropping the ball on updating the act when it should have years ago.

Coup Or Civil War In Egypt

The day after new protests erupted in Egypt the military in a show of support presented an ultimatum to Mohamed Morsi and the Muslim Brotherhood-led government. Morsi was to step down from power and meet all of the demands of the Egyptian people, or face being removed by the military on Wednesday. As the ultimatum deadline draws closer in Egypt, Morsi refuses to leave, insisting that parliamentary elections are needed before he should be removed, and that he doesn't have permission from the United States to remove himself from power. Most recently he stated he will pay with his life to preserve the sanctity of the ballot box.
