STORM RECOVERING

STORM RECOVERING

Hannah Storm has kept a busy schedule in New Orleans, but the ESPN anchor admits she's still trying to adjust while recovering from a propane grill accident that left her seriously injured.

``I've been really tired, and at times, sometimes in pain,'' Storm says.

Storm was using her propane gas grill at home in December when the flame when out. When she went to relight it, there was an explosion. Storm suffered second-degree burns on her chest and hands and first-degree burns to her face and neck. She lost her eyebrows and eyelashes, and roughly half her hair.

With makeup and hair extensions, it's hard to tell she was hurt. She's back anchoring and is finishing up a documentary on basketball player Sheryl Swoopes for the network. She also has an NBA primetime interview series, ``Face to Face with Hannah Storm,'' set to air before the playoffs.

She said she feels grateful to be in New Orleans to spread a message of grill safety.

``Super Bowl Sunday is the No. 1 grilling day of the winter, so it's been a real blessing to be able to sort of pass that message along and hopefully help people be safe while they're having fun,'' she said.

5 must-see moments from Wizards' loss to the Raptors, including Kelly Oubre Jr's putback slam

The Washington Wizards lost to the Toronto Raptors 117-113 on Saturday night in the Wizards' 2018-19 regular season opener. Here are five plays or moments worth revisiting...

1. Early on in this one, there was a difference in Otto Porter Jr. He came out firing from long range after not taking a single three in the Wizards' season-opening loss to the Heat earlier in the week.

This was Porter's best play. Off an incredible fastbreak pass from John Wall, Porter knocked down a near-corner three and got the and-1:

It's often you see a four-point play. Porter finished with 11 points in 24 minutes after fading in the second half.

2. This may have been the best play of the night for the Wizards. Wall zoomed down the floor and missed a contested transition layup. But Kelly Oubre Jr. was there to clean it up with a vicious putback slam:

Oubre had eight points and six rebounds, but shot 3-for-8 and had two turnovers in 19 minutes.

3. It was a bad overall night for the Wizards, but Bradley Beal did provide a great moment in the second half when he knocked down his fifth three of the game. That one passed Gilbert Arenas on the Wizards/Bullets all-time list for career threes:

Beal had 32 points in 35 minutes on 12-for-21 from the field and 6-for-11 from three. He also added six rebounds, a steal and a block.

4. Per usual, Wall made a lot of plays attacking the rim on Saturday night. On this one, he got the bucket and the foul:

Wall finished with 25 points, six assists and four steals.

5. Those were the good moments for the Wizards. But the play of the game was by Raptors guard Fred Van Vleet.

On a broken play with the shot clock ticking down, Van Vleet threw up a desperation shot that went in and sealed the victory:

It has only been two games, but the Wizards failing to execute late to secure victories has been an early season theme.
