Celtics' Isaiah Thomas forced from game with hip injury


Game two is Friday at the Garden before the series shifts to Cleveland for games three and four. "I think for IT not to play, he'd have to have one of his legs cut off or something", said Gerald Green . In contrast, Boston shot 26.8 percent from the field, committing 10 turnovers, and shooting just 3-for-14 from 3-point range. It was only an 11-point deficit by the end of the first quarter, but a 12-0 run in the second quarter ballooned the Cleveland lead to 48-25 and that was about it ... Read More »

Warriors Hope to Have Jazz Feeling the Blues


If you needed a reminder as to why an already stacked Warriors team went ahead and added a former NBA Most Valuable Player over the summer, look no further than Golden State's 102-91 Game 3 win over the Utah Jazz on Saturday. Once the fourth quarter started, though, the tables turned. Golden State won by 7 points twice (once in overtime), by 3 points once and by 11 points once. Read More »

Klopp adamant Liverpool can compete with any rival in transfer market

City look nearly certain to achieve the bare minimum of a top-four place and could only finish below Arsenal if they lost at Watford, Arsenal won and there was a five-goal swing, with Wenger's side scoring more than City on the day. We conceded too many goals (42 in the league). While very unlikely, it is still a possibility. The Reds won't be relying on him this weekend, but he is certainly the player that will worry Middlesbrough the most. Read More »

Fit-again Rohit returns in India's Champions Trophy squad


Dhawan paid a price of his inconsistency, and was axed from the Indian team. The major change is the team would be under the leadership of Virat Kohli . The Karnataka batsman has been good form in IPL 2017. Opener Rohit Sharma and seamer Mohammad Shami have made comebacks after injuries. India's star spinner R Ashwin is now recovering from a sports hernia but selectors expect him to get back in form before the tournament begins on June 1 in England and Wales. Read More »

Jose Mourinho confirms Zlatan Ibrahimovic will be at Europa League final

"If, in the next transfer window, we manage to be successful, I think we can (challenge for the title)". Read More »

Zinedine Zidane calm with Real Madrid one point away from title


The match will take place at Malaga's La Rosaleda Stadium, but at the same time the Merengues' opponents will do everything to keep their 11th position in the standings, which is linked to issues of television rights and consequently higher revenue, which ironically would also be the case of 1 million Euro.

Todd Pletcher takes sure and steady approach to Preakness


Classic Empire Julien Leparoux 3-1 6. "They could go at it right from the start".

Mumbai Indians march into IPL final, beat Knight Riders


Overall: Mumbai have won 15 of the 20 matches between the sides. But Karn Sharma ensured that the partnership did not blossom to the extent that it gets KKR back in the match as he removed Jaggi for 28. With rain playing spoilsport, KKR needed just 48 off 6 overs as the Duckworth-Lewis (D/L) method came into play. Kolkata were reduced to 123 in the second over after Bhuvneshwar Kumar (1/11) and Chris Jordan (1/9) struck early and Yusuf Pathan was run out. Read More »

ARSENAL take on Everton at home on Sunday, but who will start the match? "We won more games than previous year and we have one point more already".

Nadal beats Djokovic to enter Madrid Open Final


Rome, where the Spaniard is a seven-time champion, beckons. "To beat an opponent such as Novak, it gives you a lot of confidence". No surprise, then, that during Madrid this year, Nadal had his old strut back.

Arsenal manager Arsène Wenger's future to be decided after FA Cup final

City, which has the best goal difference, plays at Watford and Liverpool hosts already-relegated Middlesbrough. Laurent Koscielny is facing a late fitness test on a niggling Achilles injury which kept him out of the game on Tuesday night but I'm sure Wenger will give his skipper every chance to prove his availability so I think the French worldwide will return to the side.

Premier League final day can be saved by Middlesbrough at Liverpool

Agnew's side have little to play for against Liverpool except professional pride and to try to end a woeful run of one Premier League victory in 20 games.

Concussion spotters didn't have authority to remove Crosby

The Penguins' strength is their quick strike ability. The problem is, at least in this series, the Penguins' offense has seemingly become dependent on those counters. There's not much a goalie can do against 2-on-1s and breakaways. Burakovsky then rifled a shot past Fleury at 12:29 for 5-0. If Fleury has sprung a leak, the Capitals have the talent from Ovechkin down to make him pay. Read More »

Royal Mo breaks bone in hoof while preparing for Preakness

The colt was basically flawless at the Kentucky Derby, albeit with an excellent starting position from the No. 5 post . If that is done, I respectfully believe CD officials will see the potential harm they are inviting by perpetuating their unnecessary insistence on a 20-horse Derby using a pair of starting gates.

Washington has been a dominant team at home this season, but has been lackluster at best away from the Verizon Center. Game 5 of this series is set to tip May 10 at 8 pm EST on TNT.

Alonso spent much of Friday's running battling track conditions as wind and rain posed a challenge to all drivers to get in a fast qualifying simulation. "I'm not sure what happened".

Kyle Lowry doubtful for Game 4 against Cavaliers


DeRozan got some personal redemption after having to sit for two days and stew on that five-point effort in Game 2, going off for 37. Lowry is the team's best three-point shooter and its second-leading scorer and his absence was a factor. Norman Powell made Toronto's first 3-pointer with 3:09 in the third quarter - the Raptors were 0-of-12 up to that point. Toronto lost Powell to a left ankle injury midway through the first quarter.

Predators forward Ryan Johansen has thigh injury, out for playoffs


The Anaheim Ducks' Corey Perry had a different idea of justice. Anaheim has been a tougher opponent, but Nashville still took a 2-1 series lead before the Ducks won Game 4 to tie it up. Schulz took the Japanese Counsel General and his wife to a Preds playoff game in the first round "and they couldn't get enough of it". He stood tall in the net and he gave us a chance. Read More »

No use in betting, games or single club/league/player publications. Jacob adds: "The apparent disagreement with Gazidis may have contributed to the delay in Wenger signing a two-year contract beyond the summer".

Madrid Masters Kyrgios sets up potential Nadal clash


Nadal was also taken to three sets before seeing off Fabio Fognini 7-6 (7/3), 3-6, 6-4. "I think he's the best clay-courter in the world, the greatest clay-courter of all-time".

Cleveland Cavaliers 130-86 Boston Celtics


James statistics are breathtaking - did we mention he was a plus-46 for the game, the best plus/minus of his career, including, presumably his prep years at St. With the Boston Celtics having earned home-court advantage in the 2017 Eastern Conference Finals, fans may have had some hope. The Celtics haven't found a way, and they're running out of time. Read More »

Classic Empire: Preakness Stakes Contenders

I'd love to put bubble wrap around him. "Just by his physical makeup, I think that he's a horse that hopefully can continue to even get better than he already is".
