Rain intervenes again - and this time Australia are on the wrong end

Steve Smith's Australians looked in control against Bangladesh at the Oval overnight, bowling the Tigers out for 182 then reaching 83-1 after 16 overs before rain stopped play.

Warriors top Cavaliers and move to brink of NBA title


But when the Cavs desperately needed points to stop the bleeding, James missed a lay-up, a turnaround fadeaway and a potential game-tying 3-pointer that was stripped by Andre Igoudala.

Kevin Durant Believes LeBron James 'Paved Way' For His Move To Warriors


The Cleveland Cavaliers have been no match for the fast-paced Golden State Warriors through the first two games of the NBA Finals but insist they have no desire to slow things down when the series resumes on Wednesday.

Matt Murray: Pens' G Matt Murray loses; Cup Final tied 2-2

Evgeni Malkin scored in the first two games but was pointless in the last two.

This match is a toss-up in my eyes, as Wawrinka does have the edge on clay and is playing better tennis overall, but it's tough to bet against Murray and that defense.

Preds even Stanley Cup Final at 2-2, beat Penguins, 4-1

Crosby was a force of nature, batting pucks out of the air with precision, or chasing them down. With Malkin, he's shot the puck a lot less (2.8 per-game) but still remained largely productive. “If we continue to get those chances, theyll go in for us.”. "You want to bury them but sometimes they don't go in". Though Sullivan experimented liberally with his line combinations - something he frequently does when trying to break the Penguins out of a funk - there appear to be no plans to make a ...

Cavaliers seek answers as Warriors eye ideal title run


And we're a full group when he's out here. And even without waking ghosts, Golden State would see its ideal postseason record - now 14-0, aiming for a never-done 16-0 - spoiled.

The Red Sox chased Asher and closed to 3-2 in the seventh. In the first 27 games, the Orioles saw the Red Sox nine times, including the two series full of controversy.

Weird Noises Cut Short Kevin Durant's NBA Finals Media Session

Golden State now has Kevin Durant on the team and the Cavaliers have been unable to stop him. The Cavaliers may very well lose this series; judging by how the first two games played out, they could lose it in as few as four games. Irving hit the nail on the head. The bromance, on the other hand, is a plus. To put that in perspective, Cleveland's net rating in the three other respective quarters is no worse than -16.4. Read More »
