Masters co-leader Sergio Garcia ready to change major fortunes

Jordan Spieth, the 2015 victor who was the 54-hole leader each of the past three years, will start Sunday two shots behind the leaders, getting himself into contention with a 4-under 68. "It was a very solid round and then obviously finishing birdie-birdie just kind of put the cherry on top of what was a good day". "We weren't going to win any awards in the last two holes with me being in the woods, but the support he (Couples) gets is wonderful". Read More

Butler has triple-double, fuels Bulls past 76ers 102-90

Added Hoiberg: "As the game went on, you can tell he got a little more comfortable". It was easier for Butler to joke after the win, but don't expect him to let Portis get away with it again. With just a handful of games remaining in the regular season, the Eastern Conference still has a lot of sorting out to do when it comes to the playoff picture. Read More

Rizzo and Cubs raise banner, beat Dodgers 3-2 in home opener

As the Cubs were introduced during pregame ceremonies, they came out on the field wearing uniforms with gold lettering and caps with a World Series trophy logo on the side. But there was periodic rain and storms in Chicago for much of the day, and a steady rain pushed back the start of the festivities. Manager Joe Maddon's mind started racing immediately when he stepped into the clubhouse and saw the wall covered with a portrait of the graffiti-covered brick exterior of Wrigley that fans ...

Rangers opening playoffs with road test in Montreal

Rangers opening playoffs with road test in Montreal

The Rangers are top heavy in their line-up, but the defensive zone is questionable, especially Lundqvist who has been shaky against the Canadiens this season. Kreider is, in addition, an above-average shot suppressor, pointing to his ability to drive the play in the Rangers' favor when he is on the ice. Meanwhile all six Canadiens fall to the ice simultaneously, earning off-setting diving and interference penalties for the respective teams. Read More

Darryl Sittler say players, fans lose when Olympics is off the table

Any argument about brand-building for the National Hockey League or the game is undermined by hard evidence, because Olympic participation hasn't been shown to have any meaningfully lasting effect on their business. Would Vlasic consider leaving the Sharks in the middle of the season to compete for Team Canada? "We want to see the best against the best", Sittler said in an interview with Matt Galloway on Metro Morning . Read More

Metta scores 18 in possible farewell, Lakers top Pels 108-96

In his 17 years as a player in the NBA, World Peace is averaging 13.2 points, 4.5 rebounds and 2.7 assists. His former teammate and current coach, Luke Walton, had shone the spotlight on the player formerly known as Ron Artest, and World Peace had provided Staples Center and the 2016-17 Lakers the flawless story for its final home game of the season - possibly the final time World Peace ever plays at Staples Center or dons a Lakers' jersey.

"I feel if I am healthy enough to swing at it I can play this course". "I'm two back, I've been playing good golf and I'm really happy with where I'm at". Read More

James out for Cavs' regular-season finale vs. Raptors

Additionally, Irving - who recorded 45 points and nine assists - has been bothered by a sore knee while James is averaging 42.3 minutes over a five-game span. The Cavs have the fewest wins a LeBron-led team has had since the 2007-08 season. As Korver put it, the Cavs have seesawed between really good and not very good all season long. Read More

Brooks will hire an agent, which means when he does he can not return to OR next season even if he doesn't like the direction of his draft stock during the process. He tested the waters of the NBA Draft last season but didn't hire an agent. Two of the Oregon Ducks' top basketball players are leaving school to enter the NBA Draft after the team's trip to the Final Four. Read More

McLaren's Alonso to miss Monaco GP to race in Indy 500

You've read that lead sentence correctly. Montoya will drive a fifth Team Penske entry in both the INDYCAR Grand Prix on the IMS road course May 13 and the Indy 500 on the oval on May 28. While McLaren may be better known as a Formula 1 team, it has a winning history in IndyCar racing. Aside from all the sponsor agreements and fanfare that go with the biggest race on the F1 calendar, it also looks likely to be McLaren's best chance of a good result in the first half of the year.

Capitals vs. Maple Leafs live stream, Game 1

That Raptors win number will top out at 51 with a victory Wednesday in Cleveland against a team that has been more up and down than your average United Airlines passenger on an overbooked flight. Notably, these youthful Leafs are the second team in history with a trio of 60-point rookie scorers (Matthews, 67; Mitch Marner, 61; William Nylander, 60). Read More

Romine's grand slam lifts Tigers to 5-3 win over Twins

Fulmer allowed zero runs on four hits with two walks while striking out four over six innings, but didn't factor into the decision Friday against the Red Sox. James McCann did all the scoring for Detroit , going 1 for 3 with a 2-run home run. Consecutive two-out walks in the ninth put the potential tying run on base, but Eduardo Escobar flied to center to end the game. Read More

Celtics pull away from Cavs, Warriors' streak ended

Celtics coach Brad Stevens stressed that the subject of the meeting won't keep him out of tomorrow night's Bucks game. The Cavaliers' 126-125 overtime loss to the Atlanta Hawks on Sunday afternoon qualifies as a tough loss. But if the Spurs did not dominate the Heat in the 2014 NBA Finals, Cleveland would never have had LeBron James back playing for their team. The Cavs wasted a 26-point lead going into the fourth at Atlanta on Sunday, and an 11-pointer in the final 12 minutes of ... Read More

Coutinho and Firmino on target as Liverpool fight back to win

Third-placed Liverpool have 60 points from 31 games, a position Klopp considers "good". It was his 30th top-flight goal and put him one clear of former Middlesbrough attacker Juninho. Nearly immediately the visitors were indebted to goalkeeper Simon Mignolet, who denied Saido Berahino from close range with an incredible save. The Liverpool boss replaced teenage duo Ben Woodburn and Trent Alexander-Arnold at the break with the more experienced Brazilians as his side overturned a 1-0 ... Read More

Palace humiliates Arsenal, Pressure mounts on Wenger

The defeat for Wenger's side leaves their top four hopes in tatters as they fall further behind the Champions League places. It looks on the pitch you can see that. "The fact that we've lost a few away games: it's really unusual". Stoke fans have been brutal and amusing when the Arsenal boss has been on their turf, reacting to that rugby jibe with renditions of Swing Low Sweet Chariot - and famously mocking his public tantrums by doing "the Wenger", which only served to inflame him even ...

Every Europa League game a 'final' for Man United - Shaw

Every player should receive some criticism because we are not ideal. "I want to be at this place and hopefully I can carry on giving great performances for the club until the end of the season". I know it's two legs and we have to play a second match at Old Trafford where in the Europa League we are very strong and win every match in the Europa League , so we have that second leg as a possible protection.
