AP Sports Summary for June 10th, 2024:

Celtics beat Mavericks 105-98, take 2-0 lead in NBA Finals as series heads to Dallas

BOSTON (AP) — Jrue Holiday had 26 points and 11 rebounds, and Jayson Tatum made up for a rough shooting night with 12 assists and nine rebounds as the Boston Celtics beat the Dallas Mavericks 105-98 on Sunday night to take a 2-0 lead in the NBA Finals. Luka Doncic, who was listed as questionable to play less than two hours before the opening tipoff, scored 32 points with 11 rebounds and 11 assists — the first NBA Finals triple-double in Mavericks franchise history. But he missed a one-footed, running floater from 3-point range with 28 seconds left, ending Dallas' last chance at a comeback. Game 3 is Wednesday night in Dallas.

Carlos Alcaraz owns 3 Grand Slam titles at age 21 and his Wimbledon title defense starts July 1

PARIS (AP) — Carlos Alcaraz plans to continue his tradition of celebrating Grand Slam titles with tattoos by getting ink of the date he won his first French Open championship and a drawing of the Eiffel Tower. That art will go near his right ankle to help him remember Sunday's 6-3, 2-6, 5-7, 6-1, 6-2 comeback against Alexander Zverev in the final at Roland Garros. His right ankle already bears the date of his 2023 Wimbledon triumph. His left arm carries the date of his first major trophy at the 2022 U.S. Open. At the rate he's going, who knows how many such achievements the 21-year-old from Spain might accumulate. His title defense at the All England Club begins July 1.

Another surprise? Europe's biggest soccer show to begin in Germany and as usual it's unpredictable

A returning Cristiano Ronaldo, a rampant Kylian Mbappé and a resurgent Germany. Throw in a Harry Kane-powered England and defending champion Italy and Euro 2024 is wide open. That's without mentioning three-time winner Spain. The unpredictability of the European Championship is what makes it such compelling viewing. Even in its expanded format of 24 teams, there is always the potential for a surprise. This is the tournament that was won by rank outsider Greece in 2004. In 1992 it was won by a team that hadn't even qualified for the finals after Denmark was granted entry at the 11th hour because war-torn Yugoslavia was banned. Don't rule out a wildcard coming out of the pack.

Scheffler holds on to win Memorial for his 5th PGA Tour title of the year

DUBLIN, Ohio (AP) — Scottie Scheffler is a winner again, and he never had to grind so hard. Scheffler held off Collin Morikawa and Adam Hadwin at the Memorial with his highest Sunday score in nearly two years. He shot a 74 and it was enough for a one-shot victory over Morikawa. Muirfield Village was so tough that only six players broke par and the average score was 75. Scheffler ended it by getting up-and-down from behind the 18th green and making a 5-footer for par. He shook hands with tournament host Jack Nicklaus and then cradled month-old son Bennett.

Italy's Jannik Sinner overtakes Novak Djokovic to debut at No. 1 in the ATP rankings

PARIS (AP) — Jannik Sinner has moved up to No. 1 in the ATP rankings for the first time. He moves up one spot to replace the injured Novak Djokovic at the top. The 22-year-old Sinner is the first player from Italy to reach No. 1 since the computerized rankings began in 1973. He will be the top-seeded man at Wimbledon, where play begins July 1. Sinner is 33-3 this season with three titles, including earning his first Grand Slam trophy at the Australian Open in January. French Open champion Carlos Alcaraz is No. 2, with Djokovic at No. 3. Iga Swiatek's third consecutive championship at Roland Garros allowed her to increase what already was a large lead at No. 1 in the WTA rankings. Coco Gauff is No. 2.

Grisham's 3-run homer, Judge and Cabrera solo drives lift Yankees over Dodgers 6-4 to prevent sweep

NEW YORK (AP) — Trent Grisham hit a go-ahead, three-run homer, Aaron Judge and Oswaldo Cabrera also went deep and the New York Yankees rallied for a 6-4 victory over the Los Angeles Dodgers to prevent a three-game sweep in a series billed as a possible World Series preview. Teoscar Hernández's sixth-inning homer gave the Dodgers a 3-2 lead against Luis Gil. Starting because Juan Soto missed his third straight game due to forearm soreness, Grisham drove a fastball from Tyler Glasnow about a dozen rows into the right-field seats for a 5-3 lead in the bottom half.

Carlos Alcaraz wins the French Open for a third Grand Slam title at 21 by beating Alexander Zverev

PARIS (AP) — Carlos Alcaraz has come back to defeat Alexander Zverev 6-3, 2-6, 5-7, 6-1, 6-2 to win the French Open for his third Grand Slam title. Alcaraz is a 21-year-old from Spain who becomes the youngest man to collect major championships on three surfaces. Sunday's victory allows him to add the clay-court trophy from Roland Garros to his triumphs on hard courts at the U.S. Open in 2022 and on grass at Wimbledon in 2023. He is now 3-0 in Grand Slam finals. Zverev dropped to 0-2 in major title matches. He was the runner-up at the 2020 U.S. Open after blowing a two-set lead against Dominic Thiem.

Clark not on Olympic team, hopes to make it one day with USA Basketball

Caitlin Clark hopes to play for the U.S. Olympic team one day. It just won't be in Paris next month. The Indiana Fever rookie has confirmed that she isn't on the roster for this year's Olympics. She wasn't included on the U.S. team that was provided to The Associated Press on Saturday by a person familiar with the team. The person spoke on condition of anonymity because no official announcement had been made. The roster includes A'ja Wilson, Breanna Stewart and Diana Taurasi, who is going for a record sixth Olympic gold medal.

Luka Doncic's triple-double not enough to help Mavericks avoid 2-game hole in NBA Finals vs. Boston

BOSTON (AP) — Luka Doncic is piling up injuries and points in these NBA Finals. But for the second straight game, he didn't get enough support from his Mavericks teammates. This time on a night when the Boston Celtics did everything possible to give Dallas a chance to steal a game on the road. Doncic connected on 12 of 21 shots and finished with 32 points, 11 assists and 11 rebounds, marking his 10th career playoff triple-double and the first Finals triple-double in Mavericks' history. But his teammates went a combined 26 of 59 from the field on a night in which Boston went just 10 of 30 from the 3-point line during Boston's 105-98 Game 2 win.
