SALT LAKE CITY — Bojan Bogdanovic scored a career-high 48 points to rally the Utah Jazz past the Denver Nuggets 127-120 on Friday night. Bogdanovic went 16 of 23 from the field — making a career-high eight 3-pointers — to lead the NBA-leading Jazz to their fourth straight victory. He also had eight rebounds. Jordan Clarkson added 21 points and eight assists. Rudy Gobert had 14 points and nine rebounds, and Georges Niang chipped in 13 points – all in the second half. Michael Porter, Jr. scored 31 points for Denver. Nikola Jokic added 24 points, 13 assists, and nine rebounds, Paul Millsap had 20 points and Austin Rivers 18. Utah did not trail over the final 11:22 of the fourth quarter after Niang hit back-to-back shots to give the Jazz a 103-99 lead. Denver scored just one basket over a six-minute stretch and couldn’t quite erase the resulting deficit. The Nuggets cut it to 121-118 on a free throw from Rivers. Clarkson answered with a stepback 3-pointer with 51.7 seconds left and Bogdanovic hit a pair of free throws in the final seconds to seal the win. Both offences sizzled during the first quarter. Denver shot 68% from the field and Utah shot 67%. The two teams combined for 81 points and 31 total baskets in the quarter. Denver made 11 of its first 13 shots from the field and staked out a 24-13 lead midway through the first quarter. The Nuggets repeatedly blew past perimeter defenders and scored five layups over the first six minutes – culminating with a reverse layup from Gordon that put Denver up by 11 points. Utah answered with a 19-6 run to erase Denver’s lead before the end of the quarter. Clarkson hit three 3-pointers to level the score. Ersan Ilyasova made another 3-pointer and hit a pair of free throws to finish off the run and give the Jazz a 40-36 lead. Denver pulled ahead again before halftime. The Nuggets built up a 58-49 lead behind a 17-6 run capped off by a Jokic jumper. Bogdanovic kept Utah within striking distance. He hit three 3-pointers to help the Jazz erase the deficit a second time and pull even at 67-67. TIP INS Nuggets: Austin Rivers is 15 of 19 from 3-point range in three games against Utah this season. Rivers went 5 of 7 from long distance on Friday. … Denver coach Michael Malone was whistled for a technical foul midway through the third quarter after an unsuccessful coach’s challenge. … Jokic made his first seven shots before missing a jumper with 38.4 seconds left in the third quarter.

The City of Morden has implemented water restrictions for residents and businesses, as the southern Manitoba municipality prepares to enter the summer months in severe drought conditions. "You can go take a walk out there and see the problem right at the beach. We now have three times the beach we’ve ever had before. It doesn’t take imagination to understand where this is going to put us, if we don’t do something," Morden Mayor Brandon Burley told the Free Press. Southern Manitoba is currently experiencing various levels of drought conditions, according to the Canadian Drought Monitor, with all of the area west of Morden and Winkler (inclusive) classified as extreme — currently the driest part of the country. For Morden, a city of nearly 9,000 some 100 kilometres southwest of Winnipeg, the conditions pose a significant risk to its main water supply. The municipality relies on a single source, a reservoir called Lake Minnewasta. "The seasonal flushing of the lake didn’t happen last year, and barely happened the year before. And as winter progressed, water was being used and there was no recharge from snow to speak of. And then nothing in terms of rain this spring was of any assistance. That’s usually the time when this lake recharges," Burley said Thursday. Lake Minnewasta is currently 6.1 feet below its full supply level. According to the city’s data, the last time water levels were this low was 1983. This leaves Morden with a bleak forecast of potentially not being able to treat and provide potable water to residents by the end of the summer, if precipitation levels remain consistent as seen over the past four years. "We’re still working on contingencies for this. We do have an existing supply line to the Pembina Valley Water Co-Op, but we don’t have near enough volume to satisfy the community. And so the city has really had no contingency whatsoever on water supply... As we’ve grown, our water supply hasn’t grown with us," Burley said. The restrictions are a mix of mandatory and voluntary lowering of water use. There is a ban on use in pools and/or landscaping purposes. Lowering water use in homes and businesses is voluntary, with some mandatory restrictions in place on alternating days. Overall, it is meant to achieve a 25 per cent reduction in water use. Drought is one of the biggest climate change-related risks associated with the Prairie region. Burley said the issue has been on the city’s radar and, in its strategic plan, addressing contingencies for water shortages was a slated priority for 2022. A shortage of resources had prevented action sooner. "Communities need to be looking at what their backup plans are. And this is something we had forecasted to do next year. But it looks like we’re gonna have to work on a contingency sooner than that," the mayor said. A government spokesperson with the Department of Agriculture said the province will be offering its support to Morden and other water users across southern Manitoba in the coming weeks and months. "We appreciate that the City of Morden is taking proactive measures to conserve water and make every drop count." On Wednesday, the provincial government announced $1 million will go towards the creation of a new water management strategy to address the issue in Manitoba. firstname.lastname@example.org Sarah Lawrynuik, Local Journalism Initiative Reporter, Winnipeg Free Press

ST. LOUIS — Jack Flaherty hit his first career home run and became the major leagues' first six-game winner, leading the St. Louis Cardinals over Colorado 5-0 on Friday night in Nolan Arenado's first game against the Rockies. Arenado, a five-time All-Star and eight-time Gold Glove winner during with seasons in Colorado, was traded to the Cardinals on Feb. 1 for five players, including pitcher Austin Gomber. Arenado went 2 for 4, doubling off Gomber (2-4) in the second, then struck out and grounded out. Arenado added a single against Lucas Gilbreath in the eighth. Flaherty (6-0) gave up three hits in seven innings, struck out six and walked one, retiring his final 13 batters. He lowered his ERA to 2.83. Trevor Story walked with two outs in the third, Colorado's last runner until Raimel Tapia singled starting the ninth. Colorado briefly had the bases loaded in the first after Garrett Hampson singled just beyond the infield in left. But Charlie Blackmon rounded second and couldn't get back in time, and shortstop Paul DeJong threw behind him for the third out. Flaherty homered in the third inning against Gomber in his 117th big league at-bat. The drive, on a 91.5 mph fastball with a 3-1 count, went 416 feet and landed just into the Rockies’ bullpen in left.

NEW YORK — Francisco Lindor hit a tying, two-run homer in the seventh inning after an apparently heated exchange with teammate Jeff McNeil in the dugout tunnel, and the New York Mets rallied to beat the Arizona Diamondbacks 5-4 Friday night. New York walked off with a victory when designated runner Pete Alonso scored on pinch-hitter Patrick Mazeika's fielder's choice. A day after snapping a 0-for-26 slide with a ninth-inning single Thursday in St. Louis, Lindor produced his biggest moment since signing a $341 million, 10-year deal with the Mets. He tied the game by hitting a 2-2 changeup from left-hander Caleb Smith. The blast came a half-inning after shortstop Lindor and second baseman McNeil combined to misplay a popup. After the top of the seventh, teammates rushed into the tunnel adjacent to the dugout. Lindor acknowledged after the game that he and McNeil were having a disagreement — he claimed the pair saw a rat in the tunnel, and he was objecting to McNeil's suggestion that it was a racoon. After rounding the bases on his homer, Lindor exchanged fist bumps with Tomas Nido, who drew a walk to start the inning and Michael Conforto, who was waiting in the on-deck circle. Conforto was among the first who flew toward the tunnel during the exchange. Shortly after Lindor’s second homer as a Met, billionaire owner Steve Cohen tweeted: “That was BIG”. Mazeika softly hit a 2-2 pitch from Stefan Crichton to the first base-side of the mound to score Alonso. Before his homer, Lindor heard boos when he flied out in the fifth with a runner on first. Lindor went 2 for 5 and produced his second multi-hit game as a Met. His other was April 14 against Philadelphia. Aaron Loup (1-0) tossed a scoreless 10th for the win.
