Beijing was supposed to host the first meeting between Mourinho and Pep Guardiola for their new respective clubs, but that was called off hours before kick-off due the condition of the waterlogged pitch.
James briefly wore protective eye glasses to cover the scratched cornea he suffered on his right eye, but tossed them toward the bench with 3:37 left in the first quarter. The fourth quarter was garbage time, with the Spurs opening up a 33-point lead at one point. He scored 12 out of the last 14 points and the Thunder made a marvelous comeback because they were trailing 78-91 and in the end, they won 92-91.
But I always said that the league only finishes when it is mathematically sure you have won. Otherwise you must fight, you must play every game to try to win. "We scored a couple of really good goals and had a couple of good chances, with Wilf in particular, to seal it, but it was an outstanding victory for us".
The Blues, who had won their past 10 league games at Stamford Bridge and had not lost there in any competition since 16 September, saw that run ended by a battling Eagles side. Yet, the Italian boss refused to blame the referee for not awarding his side a penalty during the game, while urging his side to bounceback when Manchester City visit Stamford Bridge on Wednesday night.
With both teams sitting at 1-1, Saturday night's game would decide who gets the final spot in the final four. "We still had a couple of major leaguers, but they were first years, so we didn't have that much experience". Stanton had been in and out of the lineup himself; Saturday he batted eighth. "You know, when I got invited here I just, you know, figured it was a huge honor, and if you're here, it means you're good enough to be here, and that's enough for me".
Jurgen Klopp's side took the lead thanks to some typically brilliant work from Sadio Mane, before Matthew Pennington equalised with a dream goal that he will never forget.

This has no impact on the Knicks, who have been sitting out Rose and Carmelo Anthony regularly over the past few weeks, at least not for this season. Another year, another debilitating injury for Derrick Rose . Rose, 28, spent his first seven seasons with the Chicago Bulls until he was traded to the New York Knicks following the 2016 season. He has been mostly healthy during his lone season with the Knicks, averaging 18 points and 4.4 assists over 64 games.
But don't just take our word for it-ask Mercedes' star driver: "I see Ferrari being quickest", Lewis Hamilton told the BBC three days before being beaten by Ferrari driver Sebastian Vettel. We then see Grosjean pull out from 6th place, looks like an engine failure of some kind. Mercedes-AMG's mistake meant that Vettel could overtake the Brit during pit-stops, eventually allowing him to take the chequered flag and 25 points.
In 21 months, Vegas has gone from a city with zero NFL, NHL, MLB or National Basketball Association options to a city with a pair of teams. Miami Dolphins owner Stephen Ross was the only vote that opposed the relocation. Las Vegas offered $750 million in public money and Bank of America said it would be willing to loan Davis $650 million to make it work. Like Las Vegas, the Raiders franchise cherishes its infamous outlaw reputation.
He led the nation in assists and averaged almost 15 points per game, shooting 42 percent from 3-point land, and also stuffing the box score in various other categories. I don't know, it kind of sinks in pretty quick, I think, knowing that you just lost a game in the NCAA Tournament. "He was just phenomenal tonight".
Sometimes you play important games but you are just focused on that and your mood is okay. "You can not imagine. It is one of the happiest days of my career as a manager". "Immediately after the game Adam said sorry to me and I thought, 'Why?'" he said. " Give me a few hours and then I'm happy ". Decisive changes lie further down the line but when you strip back the type of madcap events which can decide games, such as refereeing decisions or, frankly, some sloppy defensive mistakes ...

After all, beating a team that has won four consecutive national championships doesn't happen every day. Expectations for the Bulldogs were high in the pre-season, but even the Truest of the True Maroon would admit a berth in the 2017 title game was perhaps a bit too big of a dream.
Not only him but fiery opener KL Rahul too is set to miss IPL 10 and would not be donning the Royal Challengers Bangalore jersey due to his shoulder injury.

Paired with senior 7-footer Przemek Karnowski for much of the game, Collins provided rim protection that has kept Gonzaga at the top of the NCAA defensive charts all year, even if that has not translated into universal respect. Instead, Thornwell paused just long enough for Gonzaga to safely foul him without giving up three shots. The last two offensive rebounds were the biggest of the game as OR pulled within one inside of ten seconds.

Rahm's tee shot on the drivable par-4 18th rolled over the green and settled on a drainage grate while Johnson played it safe, opting for an iron off the tee and an approach just short of the putting surface.

Kyrgios will play Belgian David Goffin , who edged out Argentina's Diego Schwartzmann 4-6, 6-3, 7-5. "I did my best", the 29th-seeded del Potro said.

Kang posted a one-under 71 to maintain his overnight lead over Fowler, who sat joint-top of the leaderboard until dropping three strokes over his final two holes. "It's the same for everyone".

The Arsenal manager reported that Sanchez's ankle was in "an absolutely bad state" after he was taken off near the end of the 3-1 defeat but he is still unsure of the extent of the injury to his key attacker.
Previous to the Arsenal game, they had not beaten any members of the current Top 7 this season, with the only points picked up being a 1-1 draw against Tottenham. Winning the Europa League may offer United its best chance of a Champions League return at this rate. "I thought we were really resilient and well set-up in lots of respects", the Baggies boss said.
So (in that situation), you think "what do I do?" India were without Virat Kohli, their inspirational, though out of form, captain; they had been given an unusually bouncy subcontinental pitch and they had won the toss. So I was a little bit disappointed by the fact the BCCI did bring that out. "It was very important for a young side to do so and build a team for the future, so that we can give such performances consistently".
In his absence, the likes of Marcus Rashford, Anthony Martial and Henrikh Mkhitaryan couldn't find their way past former United goalkeeper, Ben Foster. It is hard to put their lack of finishing in games they created enough chances to win nearly throughout the season down to one reason; it's always been a combination of problems.

"If you saw the games then Roberto didn't score, but he opened almost all the situations".

He could not contend with 19-year-old German Alexander Zverev and squandered an early lead to fall 4-6, 6-2, 6-1. "He was the one serving out the match; didn't make it", Berdych said. The 21-year-old has won the only ever clash against Federer where he made it on to court in 2015. But Wawrinka, beaten by fellow Swiss Federer in the final of Indian Wells earlier this month, looked tired as he struggled through the third set of a match played on his 32nd birthday.
I think we controlled the game. "I said to the boys before the game that it needs to be a mixture of being really smart and emotional - not only emotional".

The Wildcats came back with a 7-0 run that included Jenkins' only field goal of the period, a jumper from near the free-throw line, pulling Villanova to within one point.
With the French Open less than 10 weeks away, most odds-makers now see Djokovic as the marginal favourite just ahead of Nadal and Murray, with Wawrinka (8-1) fourth in most betting lists and Federer (25-1) fifth.
