Jazz's Rudy Gobert out Game 2, but making progress

Meanwhile, the Jazz can be satisfied they hung around in a game they didn't "need", and showed this will likely be no worse than 2-2 after four games - even if Rudy Gobert can't come back from his knee injury. The Clippers had 60 points in paint after having 40 in Game 1 . "I think for us it's a must win too". Johnson had another solid 13-point effort off the bench, but the Jazz could never find a consistent spark offensively. Read More

Kane and ruthless Spurs have Chelsea in their sights

Here, we pick out five things we learned this weekend. "Now that is real pressure and they have not really felt it yet, but they nearly certainly will at some point between now and the end of the campaign".

Luck offers no timetable for return from surgery

Luck offers no timetable for return from surgery

Last year, the Colts thought they could keep Luck on the field with extra time off during the week. I am not going to be able to take snaps with the guys and run and handoff and do all that jazz. Luck is the engine that powers the Colts. "They have not had the best offensive line, we've talked and talked about that, but I don't think Peyton had the greatest offensive lines either protecting him ". Read More

Black Cats nine points from safety

Black Cats nine points from safety

The next twenty minutes saw Sunderland trying to get an equaliser, while the Hammers seemed content to sit back and hang on to their slender lead. When managers and teams aren't doing well, they deserve to take frustrations out on somebody. "We are disappointed to concede a late goal". "To concede both goals in this way, they were both unusual goals and of course you are not happy with the way we conceded". Read More

Jamie Carragher opens up about Arsene Wenger's situation at Arsenal

Arsenal tried to bounce back but failed to find the back of the net. I believe they can do it. The result had Arsenal's away fans chanting " You're not fit to wear the shirt " near the end of the game at Selhurst Park . They are still in the FA Cup semi-finals against Manchester City and will hope to lift themselves for a late run at the top four. On that front that is the most hard for us. Read More

Atlanta opens new stadium with win over Padres

As the Braves team readjusts to a new field, and break it in a little bit, there may be an added pressure on the team to perform well this season. Martinez's misadventures on the mound - he also airmailed a tapper to the backstop and threw a wild pitch - stood in sharp contrast to Sabathia (2-0), who took a shutout into the eighth. Read More

Portland's Nurkic out Game 2, Warriors' Durant questionable

Durant , with Green right up in his grill piece, nodded with approval so it's safe to assume the words were to hype up the big man as they vanquished the Blazers 121-109 last Sunday (April 16). "It all starts obviously defensively". As the final period got underway, Ian Clark did what he often does to give the Blazers fits and chipped in during a 15-2 run on the way to 12 points off the bench. Read More

Sergio Garcia might wear his Masters green jacket to wedding

I kind of felt that if I could make that one - certainly his putt got very hard. Spaniard Jose Maria Olazabal (another of Garcia's heroes) served paella and tapas in 1995. "You've got to hit the top of the leaderboard", he said. The dramatic triumph wiped away Garcia's penchant for late fumbles at golf's biggest events, as well as his reputation as the richest golfer without a major win. Read More

Masters 2017: Jason Day encouraged by mother's prognosis, thanks well-wishers

The 2015 Masters champion was leading in last year's final round when he plunked two shots into Rae's Creek on his way to a Masters disaster that helped England's Danny Willett take the green jacket. It's perhaps fitting then that he'll play in Wednesday's Par 3-Contest with the man who last claimed the green jacket as a rookie. "This week I feel lighter, feel refreshed in a way". Read More

Ireland players in mix for Lions squad

Warburton impressed during the Six Nations and could be joined by global team-mates Justin Tipuric, Taulupe Faletau and Ross Moriarty, while Ireland will expect to be strongly represented. He also has a poor record against the other southern hemisphere giants. Kruis is expected to be fit again within the next fortnight, and his line-out expertise and exceptional mobility and work-rate means that he could yet claim a place, especially as he will be fresh after a long lay-off.

NBA Playoffs 2017: Patrick Beverley Gifs And Memes From NBA Playoffs

Harden and the Rockets outdid the Thunder in impressive fashion by a score of 118-87, a massive margin for a playoff game. It's been one playoff disappointments after another for the innovative coach. The NBA MVP award typically goes to the best of that single season.

DH Ramirez leaves game with left leg injury

Miller broke out of a season long slump going 3-for-4 with a walk. Red Sox: Ace lefty David Price , out since early into spring training with a strained left elbow, is set to throw a bullpen session on Saturday. Blake Snell (0-2) gave up four runs - one earned - and seven hits in five innings. That allowed the Red Sox to intentionally walk third baseman Evan Longoria and create force outs at all four bases and the double-play opportunity. Read More

Isaiah Thomas to play Game 2, then fly to sister's funeral

Stevens indicated that the plan would be for Thomas to definitely travel to Seattle after the game and return to Chicago in time to play Game 3 Friday. Wade hit three triples to help the Bulls pull away and scored 22, and Butler put together a workman-like 22 points with eight rebounds and eight assists, showing no effects from the defense of Jae Crowder and Avery Bradley .

Admitting that this was the most hard situation the club had faced in decades, Dortmund chief executive Hans-Joachim Watzke said they would "not bend before terror". Mbappe bundled in the opening goal before Sven Bender, filling in for Bartra in defence, headed into his own net to compound Dortmund's problems. Dortmund coach Thomas Tuchel angrily accused UEFA of treating the bomb attack as if a "beer can" had been thrown and claimed they were informed by text message that they would have ... Read More

Aqib Talib Reportedly Won't Face NFL Punishment for 2016 Shooting Incident

The Dallas Police Department ruled in October that Talib accidentally shot himself in the leg during a fight in early June. The 10-month investigation by the National Football League has been closed, the sources said. He's recorded 10 interceptions in the three seasons since then, while also breaking up 41 passes. Undoubtedly, this comes as a major relief to the Broncos, whose defense depends of the shutdown ability of their top-three corners. Read More

Marcos Alonso says Chelsea 'have seven finals left' to clinch the title

I suppose that's the nature of the football media beast. The striker brought his teammates into play and set up Pedro and Hazard on a couple of occasions and linked well with the latter as the game went on. "We must be pleased with the game". But Costa has now gone five matches without a goal . "It was important for us to win after many days without a win", said Guardiola, whose side lost 2-1 at Chelsea in mid-week after three successive draws. Read More

Adidas Apologizes After Congratulating Marathon Runners for "Surviving" the Race

This phrasing is obviously problematic given the marathon's history-on April 15, 2013 two homemade bombs detonated near the finish line of the Boston Marathon, killing three people and injuring several hundred others. Upon noticing the unfortunate choice of words, the email began to receive a great deal of backlash on social media, and shocked Twitter users vented their disappointment in the company and the careless marketing.

Arsene Wenger demands perfection in order for Champions League qualification

We had practiced on it before but we like offensive football so this was a bit more defensive-minded for us. We have to come out on the right side in the next few games. "I don't think there is an urgency with that in any way". As for Steve Agnew and Middlesbrough , despite their decent showing, they stay 19th, six points away from safety, with relegation looking very likely. Read More

West Ham United need to avoid 'do-or-die' situation, says Slaven Bilic

Midfield has been an issue for Arsenal for a lot of this season, so it was nice to see last night that it functioned pretty well during the 3-0 win over West Ham . "And we were also good on counter-attacks", said Bilic. If you've got belief, you can win the confidence back. They were sharper than us. Arsenal had failed to assert itself in the first period as West Ham threatened through a Manuel Lanzini free kick before Mark Noble drove narrowly wide after stealing possession. Read More
