The Battle of the East in Boston

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.

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).
