Cavaliers set the tone in Game 1 vs. Raptors

The penalty comes with a $6000 fine. He's only making $9,127 this season. In last year's Eastern Conference Finals, Jones punched Bismack Biyombo in the groin, and served a one-game suspension. But first, they have to find a way to even get Cleveland's full attention. "We pushed the ball, passed the ball like we wanted". And that's when we kick in and understand we fight well under adversity. Read More

Bears sign OT Bradley Sowell to 1-year contract

Bears sign OT Bradley Sowell to 1-year contract

Starting-quality offensive tackles don't linger on the free agent market through the National Football League draft. Morgan is a guard but looks to be a potential swing tackle who can play most offensive line spots in the NFL. His most recent move before Chicago was to the Seattle Seahawks. Sowell started nine games for Seattle at left and right tackle in 2016 after signing a $1 million deal that offseason. Read More

Jets decline to pick up 5th-year option on Calvin Pryor

Jets decline to pick up 5th-year option on Calvin Pryor

The Jets are in a position to not have to commit to Pryor because they selected a pair of safeties during last week's NFL Draft , two players that are a better fit in head coach Todd Bowles' ball-hawking system. "We'll let this thing play itself out and see how things develop". And Bowles didn't rule out that possibility for next season. The Jets declining it shows how eager they are to move on from Pryor.

Champions League semifinals: Spotlight on Monaco

I am free to go right, left or in the centre. I had already taken part in the World Cup in France before he was born. We managed to get out of the group and after that we played Manchester City, one of the best clubs in Europe. Allegri will be confident of leaving Stade Louis II with an away goal or two. Beating a side which contained Lionel Messi, Luis Suarez and Neymar - and barely allowing them a chance of a goal - has given Juventus the confidence and belief that it could claim a ... Read More

Packers to release RB Christine Michael, report says

While never the best player on Wisconsin's defense, Biegel became its most visible and vocal leader and was consistently dependable when healthy. According to Pro Football Talk , only $25,000 of the money was guaranteed. His height would make King the tallest cornerback on the Packers roster from a year ago, and he sees that size as an advantage heading to the NFL. You need replacements. Read More

Cavaliers lead Pacers 88-77 at end of third

Cavaliers lead Pacers 88-77 at end of third

Channing Frye looked unplayable at times. It was the fifth overtime game of the series, and the record-setting 18th in the first round of the playoffs. Paul George will likely go off again, because water is wet and the Cavaliers don't really have anything for him other than a fully engaged LeBron James , and I don't expect to see that version of LeBron defensively until the Finals.

He has publicly stated he plans to fight on the undercard of Billy Joe Saunders' middleweight title match against Avtandil Khurtsidze on July 8. At 41 years of age, Klitschko was a shadow of his old self against Joshua, but if they faced each other three to four years ago ... Read More

McDermott had what he called "good conversations" with Watkins in explaining the reasoning behind the decision. Sean McDermott issued a statement about the move along with the Bills announcement.

Mourinho: criticism of United players is 'common sense'

Mourinho: criticism of United players is 'common sense'

The Swede's decision means that he could well have called time on his Old Trafford career, with his anterior cruciate knee injury expected to keep him out until next year. I am really pleased with that because this is the Zlatan I know. Speaking more on the much-anticipated match, the coach said it would mean a lot if they manage to break into the top-four with this match. Read More

Anthony Joshua ready to face "master tactician" Wladimir Klitschko

My dad can watch it, but not my mum. Wilder is the current holder of the WBC heavyweight title and says despite not looking past Joshua to beat Klitschko, he says a bout with the Watford native is certainly one that interests him. "I'm not a gym fighter". "I just look at little parts of it, not the whole thing". "Both fighters are confident, and they're good people so they get along well, but I know when they step into the ring it all changes", he added. Read More

The atmosphere for Game 3 in Milwaukee was unbelievable

Powell played just 14 minutes in Game 3 and shot 4-of-8 from the floor. "We did a great job of doing that tonight". Beal, in particular, had a miserable night after averaging 26.5 points in the first two games. Read More

Penguins captain Crosby doubtful for playoff after hit in head

Niskanen said after Monday's game that he wasn't targeting Crosby's head and that he didn't intend to injure the Pittsburgh star. While around the Caps net, Capitals captain Alex Ovechkin hit him in the head. Rossi also suggested that the goal of the Capitals closed-door, players-only meeting after Game Two was to devise a plan to injure Crosby. He told reporters "I'd rather not share my opinion" when asked about Niskanen's hit and whether it should draw a suspension from the National ... Read More

Oilers take command of series with another win in Anaheim

Talbot was the difference in Game 2, making all manner of impressive saves while Anaheim dominated the last 30 minutes. "Just chalk it up to a bad game", McDavid said. Perhaps that's why the Ducks' second straight loss at home barely caused a flicker of apparent concern in their calm dressing room. "That's something we can keep improving on", said centre Ryan Nugent-Hopkins. Read More

Andy Murray aiming to add Monte-Carlo to his laurels

Murray said: "It was a tough first match , I started the match pretty slow, I obviously wasn't serving that well at the start".
