Santa Clara Police Department(SANTA CLARA, Calif.) -- The Chicago Bears released Ray McDonald on Monday after the defensive lineman was arrested earlier in the day on domestic violence and child endangerment charges.

McDonald was arrested at approximately 7 a.m. local time in California for allegedly assaulting a woman "while she was holding a baby," according to Santa Clara police.

"We believe in second chances, but when we signed Ray we were very clear what our expectations were if he was to remain a Bear," general manager Ryan Pace said in a statement from the team. "He was not able to meet the standard and the decision was made to release him."

christian ammann/iStock/Thinkstock(NEW YORK) -- The Tampa Bay Lightning stunned the crowd at Madison Square Garden on Sunday, beating the New York Rangers in a final score of 2-0.

Rangers fans originally entered the Garden confident the team would be one game away from the Stanley Cup, but they left anxious and angry as the team was blanked by the Lightning.

Rangers coach Alain Vigneaut tried to find a silver lining after his team’s Jekyll-and-Hyde-style offense went silent.

“I’ve got a lot of faith and trust in my players. They know how to prepare and they know how to get ready for games. For us this year, there’s going to be no bigger game than the next one, and I’m confident that we’re going to be ready for it,” he said late Sunday.

The Lightning now has a 3-2 series lead over the Rangers.

After the game, James spoke of fighting through cramps throughout Game 3.  

“I play though exhaustion and I play hard, and I give my teammates, and I give myself as much as I can give and sometimes the body shuts down at times and tonight that’s what happened at one point,” he said.

The Cavaliers hold a commanding 3 to 0 series lead, with Game 4 being held in Cleveland on Tuesday night.

Photo by Jonathan Ferrey/Getty Images(INDIANAPOLIS) -- Juan Pablo Montoya outdueled Will Power and Scott Dixon over the final five laps to win the Indianapolis 500 on Sunday.

Montoya, who came into the race Verizon IndyCar Series points leader, won the Indy 500 for the second time -- his first coming in 2000 when he was a rookie.

The three drivers traded the lead back and forth after a caution was lifted with less than 20 laps to go, and it wasn't until there were less than three laps left that Montoya pulled ahead to eventually win the race.

From Jeff Gordon to David Letterman, here are some of the other biggest moments from Sunday's 99th running of the Indianapolis 500 at the Indianapolis Motor Speedway.

1. Jeff Gordon drives the pace car

NASCAR champion Jeff Gordon switched gears, acting as the official pace car driver for the Indy 500 and sharing the moment on Twitter. Gordon is orifinally from Pittsboro, Indiana.

2. First lap setbacks

In the first lap alone, Alex Taglianai's car didn't start and Conor Daly's car caught fire, according to ABC News affiliate WRTV-TV.

Later on, in turn 2 of the first lap, Takuma Sato tried to pass Sage Karam, and their cars collided. Ryan Briscoe was also involved in the crash.

3. Crash takes Tony Kanaan out of the running

Tony Kanaan, who was considered one of the favorites coming in to the race, lost control and crashed into a wall with just under 50 laps remaining.

Kanaan stepped out of the damaged car and waved to the crowd, but his chances of winning a second Indy championship were gone.

4. David Letterman makes a post-retirement appearance

Just days after starting his retirement, Indianapolis native David Letterman came to show his support at the Indy 500.

Letterman isn't new to the racing world -- he actually began his on-camera career as a pit reporter, and he's co-owner of the car driven on Sunday by Oriol Servia.

Photo by Ronald Martinez/Getty Images(HOUSTON) -- The Golden State Warriors would appear to be well on their way to the NBA Finals.

The Warriors pinned a 115 to 80 defeat on the Houston Rockets Saturday night in Houston.

Stephen Curry lit up the Rockets for 40 points, while Draymond Green had 17 points for the night.

The Rockets’ James Harden had a rough night, reaching 17 points, and Warriors Coach Steve Kerr explained to ESPN how the team limited Harden.

“It’s hard to stop him I mean he’s got an incredible pace to his game I mean, he sees angles, he gets into cracks of the defense and there’s little subtle things you try to do he may exploit, he may not, but I just thought we did a better job taking away some of the angles he was attacking us on in the first games,” Kerr said.

The Warriors go for the sweep in the Western Conference Finals Monday night in Houston.

Photo by Elsa/Getty Images(AUBURN, Mass.) -- A Massachusetts woman who died last week enjoyed scrapbooking, knitting, and apparently defending New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady from critics in the "Deflategate" scandal.

Patricia Shong, of Auburn, Massachusetts, died Monday, according to an obituary published on Telegram.com. She was 72.

While the obituary listed the names of her family members, where she worked and her hobbies, it also included one defense of the Super Bowl winning quarterback.

"She would also like us to set the record straight for her: Brady is innocent!!" the obituary reads.

Brady was suspended by the NFL for the first four games of the upcoming season over his team’s alleged use of underinflated footballs in the AFC Championship against the Indianapolis Colts.

While Brady has appealed his suspension, Patriots owner Robert Kraft said the team will not appeal the league's decision to fine the team $1 million, deny them their 2016 first round draft pick and suspend their star quarterback.

Photo by Mike Zarrilli/Getty Images(ATLANTA) -- Atlanta Hawks guard Kyle Korver will miss the remainder of the postseason with a severe right ankle sprain, the team announced Saturday, putting the team -- already down two games to none to the Cleveland Cavaliers in the Eastern Conference Finals -- and its season in deeper jeopardy.

Korver left Friday night's Game 2 in the third quarter after attempting to gather up a loose ball. Cleveland Cavaliers guard Matthew Dellavedova appeared to roll onto Korver's ankle on the play.

Korver had struggled to find open shots since the Hawks' previous series against the Washington Wizards, shooting just 15 of 48 from the floor in that seven game series. He was just 7 for 16 in the first two games of the Eastern Conference Finals.

Photo by Elsa/Getty Images(FOXBOROUGH, Mass.) -- Nearly 300 New England Patriots fans are planning a peaceful rally on Sunday "to protest the unjust football arrest" of Patriots quarterback Tom Brady.

Brady was suspended for the first four games of the upcoming 2015 season for his role in the deflategate scandal. An NFL-commissioned report by investigator Ted Wells found that it was more likely than not that Brady was "at least generally aware" of game balls being under-inflated during last year's AFC Championship game against the Indianapolis Colts.

According to a Facebook event, the rally is expected to take place outside Gillette Stadium, where the Patriots play. As of Saturday afternoon, 290 people had said they plan to attend.

Photo by Bruce Bennett/Getty Images(TAMPA, Fla.) -- After back-to-back disappointing performances, the New York Rangers came out firing on Friday night, beating the Tampa Bay Lightning 5-1 and evening the Eastern Conference Finals at two games apiece.

Rangers goalie Henrik Lundqvist, who had allowed six goals each in Games 3 and 4, stopped 38 shots on Friday night.

The Rangers took a lead on a goal, late in the first period, from star Rick Nash, who had just one goal in his previous 13 games. Though the Lightning tied the game at 1 midway through the second period, the Blueshirts answered back quickly and loudly.

Two goals within three minutes from Chris Kreider and Keith Yandle gave New York a 3-1 lead.

"I felt like halfway through it could have gone either way," Lundqvist said Friday, "they had a lot of open chances, especially in the second. But then when we got that second and third goal it felt like we started controlling the game a little bit better."

A third period goal from Martin St. Louis and a second from Nash gave the Rangers a 5-1 victory.
