Becky Hammon won the Spurs a late challenge after convincing Gregg Popovich to go for it

Pop didn’t want to challenge a late foul call on Jimmy Butler until Hammon convinced him to go for it.

The San Antonio Spurs were fighting off a comeback attempt from the Miami Heat in the final minutes of Sunday’s game when the NBA’s new coaching challenge rule came into play. As Jimmy Butler drove to the basket for the Heat and went for a layup, the refs called for a continuation and goaltending on the Spurs, which would have given Miami a three-point play opportunity and the...

Richard Sherman won an NFC title, then immediately got into it with Darrelle Revis online

Cary Edmondson-USA TODAY Sports

Darrelle Revis criticized Richard Sherman. As is tradition, the 49ers CB responded in kind.

Richard Sherman and Darrelle Revis are two of the best cornerbacks to take the field this millennium. They also don’t like each other very much.

Revis called out the 49ers cornerback after he got beat on a Davante Adams deep route late in a 37-20 NFC title game win over the Packers. That led a triumphant Sherman to respond after he’d marched back to the...

This explanation was too good.

The San Francisco 49ers have a chance to win their fourth Super Bowl in franchise history, thanks to their 37-20 win over the Green Bay Packers in the NFC Championship. Afterwards, 49ers tight end George Kittle, who led the team in receiving yards in the regular season, met the media donning a shirt with a shirtless Jimmy Garoppolo on it:

Jimmy Garoppolo can still throw when the 49ers need him to

Jimmy Garoppolo attempted just eight passes in the NFC Championship Game. But you shouldn’t overlook him, and neither should the Chiefs.

The 49ers ran all over the Packers in the NFC Championship Game, amassing 285 yards on the ground. That says a lot about Raheem Mostert, the guy who did most of the running, as well as all of the players blocking for him. But what does it say about quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo, who attempted just eight passes in...

Maze raises $2 million and adds Figma support to enable user testing at scale

Maze wants to reinvent usability tests by letting you turn design prototypes into tests in just a few clicks. It could become the equivalent of a developing test suite for developers, but this time for designers — it could be something that you run before shipping an update to make sure everything works fine. The startup just raised a $2 million funding round and launched a couple of new features.

Since I first covered the company, Maze founders Jonathan Widawski and Thomas Mary still have...

Chinese phone maker Huawei will work with Dutch digital mapping company TomTom to put maps on its phones, Reuters reports. A TomTom spokesperson told Reuters that the deal closed “some time ago,” but it became public late last week.

While TomTom maintains self-branded apps on iOS and Android, Reuters describes Huawei building its own apps with TomTom’s maps, traffic information, and navigation tools. TomTom has previously provided data for Apple Maps...

The Super Bowl matchup is set, and Geoff Schwartz identifies one reason to believe in each team.

Wow, folks. I’m emotional. This is awesome. For those who don’t know, my brother, Mitchell Schwartz, is the starting right tackle for the Kansas City Chiefs. And he’s now in the Super Bowl. How cool. I’m so happy for him and for his team.

The Chiefs face off against a very complete San Francisco 49ers team. They are a beast. This is an exciting...

When Royce O’Neale’s new Jazz contract will matter

Utah committed to O’Neale with big dollars to keep him out of free agency this summer. The real pressure point is a couple of years down the road.

The Utah Jazz gave defensive role player Royce O’Neale a four-year, $36 million extension. O’Neale is a third-year wing who signed with the Jazz out of Summer League in 2017 after going undrafted out of Baylor and playing two seasons in Europe. He’s a good shooter who doesn’t shoot much. His...

Radiohead launched an online ‘public library’ with rare tracks and a printable library card

Radiohead

Alright, I’ll admit it: despite the headline above, a downloadable library card may be the least exciting part of the “Radiohead Public Library,” a new online collection of the band’s material. But the clever touch emphasizes how much the Radiohead Public Library (henceforth RPL) does feel like browsing a particularly chaotic research archive. And just like a library, it can point you toward some of the band’s lesser-known work — including its debut album Drill.
