INDEPENDENCE, Ohio (AP) - LeBron James kept a low profile yesterday, much like he did in Game 3 on Sunday. James did not address the media a day after one of the worst postseason games of his career. He scored just 11 points - zero in the final 16 minutes - as the Cleveland Cavaliers blew a 21-point lead and lost 111-108 to Boston in the Eastern Conference finals. Game 4 is tonight in Cleveland.

CHICAGO (AP) - A former Boston Celtics guard says a witness against him at his trial for receiving guns stolen from a freight train didn't tell the truth and he wants a judge to toss his guilty verdict. A filing yesterday by Nate Driggers' attorneys came a month after jurors in Chicago federal court convicted him of being a felon in possession of stolen guns. The filing says the witness kept changing his story and that his contention Driggers knowingly accepted stolen guns isn't believable.

NEW YORK (AP) - The NFL says cornerback Darrelle Revis will not face discipline after he was arrested in connection with a fight in Pittsburgh in February. Revis faced four felony counts, including aggravated assault and other charges. A Pittsburgh judge dismissed those charges in March. The New York Jets released Revis in March shortly after the NFL's free agency period began. Revis also has played for Tampa Bay and New England.

TRENTON, N.J. (AP) - New Jersey's Democrat-led Assembly has approved legislation to regulate and tax daily fantasy sports. The Assembly voted 56-13 Monday on a bill that would impose a quarterly fee of 10.5 percent of gross revenues on daily fantasy sports providers. There were three abstentions.

NEW YORK (AP) - Baseball games will soon arrive on virtual-reality headsets. Video in the new At Bat VR app won't be in VR. Rather, the app places you behind home plate and shows you graphical depictions of each pitch, including a colored streak tracing the ball's trajectory. The app comes out June 1st and is included with Major League Baseball's existing streaming packages.
