The win puts the Wine and Gold essentially two games ahead of Boston in the Eastern Conference standings with four games remaining in the NBA's regular season. The Warriors, Boston - multiple times - and Philadelphia are the only franchises in National Basketball Association history to achieve that feat. Cleveland entered Wednesday's game riding a three-game winning streak, but it was their first such streak since late February, and it came right after the team dropped four out of five.
NHL Commissioner Gary Bettman recently spoke at a City Club of Chicago event and was greeted so warmly that he said, "I'm not used to hearing all this clapping". "I truly believe the real hockey fan will still be excited about the Olympics". Carla Qualtrough says she's not sure how it would work, both contract-wise and for insurance purposes.
MAURICIO Pochettino roared that his side is "fighting again" after Spurs produced a sensational last-gasp turnaround to win away at Swansea last night (Wednesday). But compare us with different teams and I think you start to realise we deserve a lot of credit because to compete in that reality is so, so hard.

Nick Kyrgios has continued his stellar form to defeat big-serving American John Isner in straight sets and put Australia on the brink of the Davis Cup's final four. The last time the two met was in the final of the Atlanta Open in 2016 where Kyrgios was the 7-6 7-6 victor on that occasion, and this was equally tight.
On Sunday, for the 2-2 draw with Manchester City, these protests turned into plenty of in-fighting amongst Gooners, many of whom are uncertain about the club's future. Wenger's team will look to keep their top four hopes alive with a win when they host West Ham at the Emirates on Wednesday night. "The experience of having done it before will play a part of course, but I think it is just about sticking together and continuing to right".
Arsenal need a win against West Ham to make up ground on their top-four rivals, with the Gunners having slipped to sixth place in the standings, seven points off fourth-placed City. The injuries mean Arsenal will have to call upon third-choice goalkeeper Emiliano Martinez once again after the Argentine kept a clean sheet against West Ham in midweek.
Kansas coach Bill Self dropped to 2-7 in Elite Eight games, including four defeats as a No. 1 seed. It will play No. 1 seed Connecticut Monday in the next round. Slaughter also contributed 11 points and eight rebounds. "They all stick with me, and they'll stick with the players who've been part of it", said Self, who led Kansas to a national title as a top seed in 2008.
Williams-Goss wore the LeBron 14, while Collins and Karnowski wore the Zoom LeBron Soldier 10. He let it fly and the attempt appeared to be off, until it clanked in the nook between the glass and back iron, lost all its steam and rolled in the hoop.
Mention that he is the first player in more than 40 years to arrive at the Masters having won his last three tournaments, and Johnson will shrug and say that his game is solid, he's working hard and that he's playing pretty well. "Because of the speed of the greens and the amount of slope there is, the wind affects the ball that much more". He made a late charge at Bay Hill and had a birdie putt on the 18th that would have forced a playoff (he three-putted and finished two behind).
There have been goals at both ends in seven of the last eight matches that Guardiola's side have contested at Etihad Stadium and bet365 offer even money (2.0 ) that the trend continues in this clash. With 14 points now the difference between his and Pep Guardiola's fourth-placed side, Conte says the race for the title is down to just two teams. "We created enough more than Chelsea - to win the game".
Led by some good effort on defense from Kawhi Leonard , the Spurs suddenly looked like they cared about the game as they slowly chipped away at the Lakers' lead. After playing the Lakers, the Silver and Black take Thursday off before facing the Dallas Mavericks on Friday and hosting the Los Angeles Clippers in their regular-season home finale Saturday.
That sequence typified today's Miami Open final. Roger Federer and Rafael Nadal are not just taking us all on a trip down memory lane, they are rewriting the history books in ways unfathomable three months back. He's not complaining. At 35, Federer is playing some of the best tennis of his career - so good he's even dominating his longtime nemesis. However, it is not inconceivable that Federer would skip the whole clay-court season, including its climax at the French Open.
He asked. "I can explain exactly how it was". Maybe we can take this as a positive. The Reds are third in the Premier League but only six points ahead of fifth-placed Arsenal, who have two matches in hand, after an 87th-minute equaliser from Joshua King earned Bournemouth a 2-2 draw at Anfield on Wednesday.
OR advances to the Final Four and a matchup with either No. 1 seed North Carolina (30-7) or No. 2 Kentucky (32-5), with the two teams playing at 4:05 p.m. Dillon Brooks' three made it 55-37 with 14:38 remaining. After a frustrating loss to OR in the Midwest Regional semifinals ended the Jayhawks' season a week earlier than they had hoped, the only thing they want to do is look to the future.
The Italian became the first coach to do the double over a Pep Guardiola team after Eden Hazard's first-half brace, and a strong defensive second-half showing, secured a narrow victory over City. Guardiola shrugged off mention of the challenge. This team is maybe the best in the league. On the other hand, Manchester City went 2-1 down on 35 minutes but Guardiola didn't make any changes until it was far too late.
Hazard had been kept up to speed with Tottenham's heroics - Spurs were 1-0 down before Dele Alli started the comeback in the 88th minute - and believes such events should serve to keep Chelsea sharp as they sense the winning line. Guardiola, who felt City's performance was better than in Sunday's draw at Arsenal, said: "Absolutely (City were better than Chelsea )". THIS is an absolute six-pointer at the bottom.
In his ninth season, and first without superstar Kevin Durant , Westbrook is leading the league in scoring at 31.9 points, has dished out the third most assists at 10.4 per game and his 10.6 rebounds per game has him tied with Marcin Gorat for the 10th-most in the league.
The MVP award stands for the player who stood out over each and every other player in the league this season. "M-V-P!" rang out for Westbrook, who raised an arm in acknowledgement as the feat was recognised by the arena announcer when play was stopped.
There's no immediate deadline. At the time of his release , Romo was in the midst of a six-year $108 million contract extension with the Dallas Cowboys, signed in 2013. He is still very unlikely to be on Dallas' roster for much longer, whether it be via a trade or release, as the Cowboys don't want his $25 million cap hit on the books as Dak Prescott's backup.
Rain is not forecast in the afternoon, but whether the conditions will be good enough to allow the helicopter to operate is hard to predict. There were spins for both Haas drivers Kevin Magnussen and Romain Grosjean in the opening minutes of the delayed session as the intermediate-shod drivers struggled in the low-speed corners.
Aged 34, the ex-Tottenham striker scored the first goal in the Three Lions' 2-0 World Cup qualifying win over Lithuania - his first global goal in over four years. "He's improving all the time and has the hunger and desire to improve". "My dad used to take me to watch Bournemouth play when he famously scored for 10 games in a row, so to be playing with him for England is quite surreal at times".
It was a odd day, with Johnson setting the tone when he strode onto the first tee but then chose to walk off it again seconds before he was due to tee off. Who can forget Ben Crenshaw winning just days after he was a pallbearer at swing coach Harvey Penick's funeral? "But overall I doubt the scores get much better than a couple under today, and maybe three or four by the end of tomorrow", he said.
As the Fairmont native prepares to make his debut at The Masters on Thursday at Augusta National Golf Club, it's clear the first major of the PGA Tour season is in a league of its own. "I hate to say it, but Clemson also won football", Johnson he said. "He said to me that he took on too much a couple of times and it cost him a couple of Green Jackets", McIlroy told reporters on Tuesday.
The point at least keeps United above Everton, who would have leapfrogged into fifth place on goal difference with a win. Manchester United Jose Mourinho has revealed Henrikh Mkhitaryan was dropped for the game against Everton after his performance in last weekend's 0-0 draw with West Brom.
Stewart Robson and Craig Burley lament Liverpool's defensive structure after they gave up a late equaliser against Bournemouth. The Reds were in the ascendancy at that point both on the scoreboard - courtesy of Divock Origi's header - and in the flow of the encounter.
Hoffman's four-shot lead is the largest after 18 holes at Augusta since 1955. Then three holes later, he made another water-drenched quadruple bogey. Because I've played here so many times and just kind of know where to go. "The putter's rolling for me right now so hopefully I can keep it going". "The tough part here (in windy conditions) is that a lot of (the course) is shielded and if you're five yards off, you could be in a very, very bad location".
If either go on to miss out on the top four, they only have themselves to blame for cracking when the pressure was on. "At the moment I don't think they've got enough to challenge for the league". "I think Arsenal will miss out". While Watford are yet to cross the 40-point mark, they should pick up the three points needed to get over the supposed safety point in their next eight games, but for West Brom the problems may just be starting.
Ndidi's superb strike, the 20-year-old's first in the Premier League, came after 25 minutes and Jamie Vardy added a second shortly after the interval with a brilliant volley. Leonardo Ulloa has scored in three of his previous five Premier League games against Stoke , but hasn't featured in a Premier League game for the Foxes since January.
Gorsuch is expected to win confirmation Friday and be sworn in soon after to hear the final cases of the term. But the president of a major civil rights group condemned Senate Republicans for "a right-wing assault on our democracy". Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, R-Ky., changed his vote to a "no" at the last minute to preserve his ability to invoke the "nuclear option," changing Senate rules to get around the filibuster.
Manchester City, Manchester United, and Arsenal are all within striking distance of Liverpool, as they have more league games remaining than the Reds do. The Reds have some stats on their side though, after scoring 66 goals this season, they are healthily the highest goalscorers in the Premier League.
Brazil have been a juggernaut in South American World Cup qualifying so far and they look to continue their domination with a win at home against Paraguay . Brazil are the only nation to compete in every edition of the World Cup. Neymar found himself the target of the visitors' defence early, being fouled a number of times in the opening stages but got on with the job at hand and nearly set up the opening goal six minutes in.
The 2-2 draw against Bournemouth on Wednesday night was the latest setback for a side that lack attacking thrust in Mane's absence, with their miserable run of form when he was away on African Cup of Nations duty in January evidence of what can happen when Liverpool are deprived of their match victor.
San Antonio jumped to a shocking 15-0 start. By the end of the game, there was a cornucopia of mea culpas. What does this mean as the Warriors march toward the playoffs? The Spurs showed why they're a force to be reckoned with in the Western Conference.
A CBS spokeswoman did not immediately return messages seeking comment. The Dallas Cowboys had no choice but to release Tony Romo and allow him to move onto the next big leaf in his career. Romo said his release was a financial consideration - he would have had to repay a portion of his signing bonus upon retirement - and he praised Jones despite the sudden change of plans when free agency opened early last month.
Connecticut's Kelli Stack (61) and her US national team teammates will be playing at the world championships beginning Friday after agreeing to a new four-year deal with USA Hockey. Team USA would be defending its gold medal from last season's world championships . In one of the boldest moves in any worldwide competition involving USA athletes, the women threatened to sit out the World Championships scheduled to begin this Friday in Plymouth, Michigan .
