  Jordan Spieth made a ridiculous 71-foot putt look stupidly easy No big deal for Jordan Spieth.It's not like baseball, say, where you can endlessly analyze everything about a given player's four or five at-bats during a game. In golf there are hundreds of players, each hitting the ball upwards of 60 times, over a course spanning close to 8,000 yards and four days. Even with the best players, it's inevitable: You're going to miss some amazing stuff.

The Grizzlies announced Tuesday that McLemore underwent surgery and would be out "an estimated 12 weeks ." The Grizzlies said McLemore got injured when he landed on another player's foot after driving to the basket during a pickup game in Los Angeles.
