Here's Wednesday's slate: Miami hosts Washington (which is locked into the No. 4 spot), Chicago hosts NBA-worst Brooklyn, and IN hosts Atlanta.

BBC pundit Lawrenson has tipped a 2-0 scoreline favour in Liverpool's favour and feels eight-placed West Brom don't have too much to play for now. Tony Pulis is still not ready to publicly give his side of the story after he reportedly paid Crystal Palace the £3.77million he owed them.
Had a couple of minutes of silence in the bathroom with no one there, and I said to myself, 'Look, this is what you practice for'". "Unfortunately, it's not quite carrying over into competition". "You're going to have to leave it where you can get up-and-down or where you can two-putt from wherever that may be". People don't know what you're doing in your day-to-day lives or how hard you're working or what's going on and people think they can then say these things that, obviously, they are not ...

Whatever Wenger opts to do next, it's obvious something will have to give if Arsenal are to make progress. When asked about the rumours in Friday's press conference, Wenger told reporters: "I like Marc Overmars".

Griezmann, 26, continues to be linked with a move away from Atletico after another impressive season during which he has scored 23 goals in all competitions.

The International Ice Hockey Federation said it is still hoping the NHL will reverse its stance and allow players to participate in the Games.

The early storyline in this first round matchup appears to be injuries as the Bruins are without defenseman Torey Krug and Zdeno Chara for at least one game and potentially forwards Noel Acciari and David Krejci as well.

Not world-beating-depth good as in years past, but still excellent enough to finish atop the Western Conference .
