KATHMANDU, Nepal (AP) — An avalanche triggered by a massive earthquake swept across Nepal's Mount Everest region on Saturday, killing at least 10 climbers and guides, slamming into a section of the mountaineering base camp, and leaving an unknown number of people injured and missing, officials said.
While the Chicago Bulls sought to finish off Milwaukee on Saturday, the Brooklyn Nets made sure their NBA Eastern Conference playoff series against Atlanta will go a little further. The Nets got the win they desperately needed on their home floor on Saturday, using a big second-half run to defeat the top-seeded Atlanta Hawks 91-83 and narrow the gap in their best-of-seven first-round series to two-games-to-one. Brook Lopez, Thaddeus Young and Joe Johnson all recorded double-doubles for the Nets, who parlayed an 18-0 scoring run that bridged the third and fourth quarters into the win they needed after dropping the first two games of the series in Atlanta.
