They ultimately rallied for their first post-season victory since May 12, 2013. Before the game was five minutes old, the Caps had exploited two defensive blunders by the Leafs, one by defenceman Nikita Zaitsev who was playing in his first National Hockey League playoff game after missing eight days with an injury, and had goals from Nicklas Backstrom and Alexander Ovechkin.
Lynch is prepared to return to the game. The Seattle Times reported that he made the visit with the Seahawks' permission. From 2011-14, he led the National Football League with 56 total touchdowns and was named to the Associated Press All-Pro First Team in 2012 and All-Pro Second Team in 2014.
Howard was much more detailed than Millsap in going through exactly what the Hawks have been able to eliminate from Wall that is throwing off both Gortat and Morris. Hardaway passed to Millsap, who attempted a drive, was stifled and dished to a teammate. Porter deflected a pass and appeared on a breakaway when Prince tracked down the loose ball and found Hardaway, who buried a 3-pointer.
Should Boston survive, they'll have learned a lot from Chicago and will be prepared for whoever leaves the Washington-Atlanta toilet party. "He hurt us offensively tonight more than anything". The head coach's response was "No", then he simply got up and left. "I just want to go out there, just give energy, just try to make my opponent as miserable as possible".
She had also skipped two Women's Tennis Association tournaments at Indian Wells and Miami purportedly over a knee problem. The 35-year-old last year in December announced that she got engaged to Reddit co-founder Alexis Ohanian. Williams could add to her earnings by appealing to new audiences, the experts said. Rocking a yellow bathing suit with a baby bump, she captioned the photo "20 weeks".
The reason why is injury to the plantar plate of his right toe. The Jazz will look to capture more magic as they travel to Los Angeles for Game 5, looking to position themselves for a closeout opportunity in Salt Lake for Game 6. The Clippers would never again taste a lead, as Johnson, himself, would go on to outscore the Clippers 13-11 during the final seven minutes of the contest.
OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) - Nene scored 28 points on flawless shooting from the field, and Houston grabbed a 3-1 lead in its first-round playoff series against Oklahoma City. I don't want nobody to try to split us. Thunder center Steven Adams was asked about the issue, and Westbrook interrupted. We'll address it, and try to get it better.
Kevin Durant (strained left calf) said that he is "getting better every day" and that "hopefully" he will be able to play in Game 3 vs. the Blazers on Saturday. In fact, Warriors head coach Steve Kerr went as far to say that he was concerned about the injury (more on that here). Of the 11 Warriors available, three are strictly centers and three more are power forwards who spend considerable time at center.
Captain Jamaal Lascelles added: "It is a bit overwhelming, to be honest". "We have to prepare everything to be strong enough for the Premier League". "He's been brilliant and deserves every plaudit, keeping himself and the players calm". Just behind him, Matt Ritchie knew exactly what was required having previously been promoted with Bournemouth, while Ciaran Clarke has shored up a perennially leaky defence.
Curry swished a 31-foot 3-pointer that made it 104-77 late in the third quarter and the Blazers couldn't catch up. Durant totaled 10 points (4-7 FG, 2-2 3PT), three rebounds, two assists, two blocks and one steal across 20 minutes during a 128-103 win over the Trail Blazers on Monday.
CITY (AP) - A person familiar with the situation tells The Associated Press that the National Basketball Association is investigating an incident between Houston Rockets guard Patrick Beverley and an Oklahoma City Thunder fan. Oklahoma City went away from him late, and Houston rallied for the victory. "Say Russell and the team haven't played well", Westbrook said. My teammates have done a great job all season long.
Kante won the Premier League title with Leicester City last season and Conte said of his PFA triumph: "We must be proud for him". Conte's Chelsea have a four-point advantage with six games to go, but beat Spurs 4-2 on Saturday to reach the FA Cup final with Arsenal and keep alive prospects of a double.
It if the first time this series in which they have led. Jimmy Butler will have to have a breakout game for the Bulls at some point for them to come away with this win. He got benched for five games at one point. You can't get comfortable and think this series is over because they're going to bring it next game. The Celtics got an unexpected performance from Gerald Green , who has been inserted as a starter for his instant offense - 13 points in 15 minutes, as the Celts led 41-21.
Earnhardt, 42, returned to racing after concussion symptoms forced him to sit out half of past year. "You deserve everything, all the awards and accolades", Hendrick said .

Russia's Maria Sharapova (right) shakes hands with Canada's Eugenie Bouchard after Sharapova's victory in their women's singles match on Day 9 of the 2015 Australian Open tennis tournament in Melbourne. Sharapova added that she had "a pretty normal life" and "grew as a person" while being away from the circuit, until getting back to training in January.
Sharapova will learn on May 16 whether she will receive a wildcard for the French Open, the year's second Grand Slam. A loose game handed Sharapova the break she needed, although she had to earn the first set on her second set point. Having been missing from the tour for more than a year after testing positive for a banned drug, Sharapova was back, front and center. Sharapova started the second set with another break of serve to win her fourth game in a row and leave Vinci reeling.
Both teams are tied 2-2 heading into Game 5, so we may see a different side of the Bulls and the Celtics tonight. Horford had 21 points, nine assists and seven rebounds for Boston, which entered the playoffs as the No. If the Bulls can draw level on Saturday, the teams will return to Boston for a possible Game 7 next week. Also, the Chicago Bulls were shooting the ball very well by their standards in the first two games of this series.
Nicklas Backstrom, Alex Ovechkin and Evgeny Kuznetsov scored for the Capitals, who twice had two-goal leads. Toronto barely made the playoffs, but they've put the Capitals on the ropes at times, jamming up passing lanes, forcing turnovers, and creating breakaways by flying past Capitals defenders - somewhat reminiscent what the Pittsburgh Penguins did to the Caps on their way to the Stanley Cup a year ago.
Real Madrid thrashed Deportivo La Coruna 6-2 to stay level with Barcelona at the top of La Liga on Wednesday after the Catalans crushed Osasuna 7-1, condemning the minnows to relegation.

NFL Network draft analyst Bucky Brooks agreed with his colleague. There are some plays where you kind of want to see a little bit more at the end of the play by Myles Garrett , but you're playing 80-90 snaps on defense now versus 50-60 years ago because of the up-tempo offenses.
Barker said afterwards: "I'm incredibly happy". "I think, wisely, he's allowed me to have the space and make mistakes". Back home, Malaysians were quick to join in the celebrations with Azizul, with many of them taking to social media to congratulate Azizul in his unprecedented achievement.
The Bucks committed 21 turnovers Saturday. "It's a tough way to live, but I love our team's resilience and personality". Monroe was coming in earlier in the series when Valanciunas was already sucking wind having chased the more fleet Thon Maker up and down the court for six or seven minutes.
However, Gift Ngoepe made history when he made his debut for the club Wednesday night. The 27-year-old South African, who signed with the Pirates in 2008 as an amateur free agent, led off the fourth with a hit off winless Cubs ace Jon Lester .
The second round of the Stanley Cup Playoffs has some amazingly even matchups. Note: my favorite part of this video is a smiling Ilya Bryzgalov. Game 2 of the best-of-seven series is scheduled for Friday in Anaheim. The Oilers are on the right path, but are about to face an even tougher test from the Ducks , who have an outstanding defence corps and are virtually at full health - something that wasn't the case for the Sharks.
The Oakland Raiders and Seattle Seahawks finally agreed to a trade that paved the way for Marshawn Lynch to be shipped to Oakland. Lynch played football at Oakland Tech High School where he started gaining recognition for making it almost impossible for the opposing team to bring him down.
Redknapp will initially take charge of the Blues until the end of the season. The move marks a surprise comeback for Redknapp more than two years since he left Queens Park Rangers, his most recent club management role. Speaking to TalkSport , Redknapp confirmed he had three games to save Birmingham from the drop and admitted the decision was not money motivated. We have the worst goal difference [of the teams still fighting against relegation].
Jose Mourinho: "They play now one game a week until the end of the season while we have the (Europa League) semi-finals which are very important for us". Details of Ibrahimovic's injury have been scarce, with United thus far refusing to even specify exactly the nature of the ligament damage. Guardiola is feeling the heat as he faces up to a first season without winning a major trophy in a nine-year coaching career that started spectacularly at Barcelona and continued at Bayern Munich.
Much will depend on Benitez's preferred course of action, and while the Newcastle boss will have earmarked attacking reinforcements as one of his key priorities this summer, he will also have to accept that he can not replace everyone. Being around the place, there is a much more positive atmosphere. Elliot admitted: "We were as surprised as everyone was when he came in". "We just need to continue that because when we are all together and the club is moving in the right direction, the ...
Moments after Alphonse Areola made a rare stop, Julian Draxler was given a simple tap-in at the other end of the field following De Sanctis's failure to keep hold of Cavani's strike. Cavani and Blaise Matuidi's headers went close, before Draxler opened the scoring account for PSG after 26 minutes. PSG continued to pile on the pressure in the second half, with Safwan MBae - one of four Monaco debutants - turning past De Sanctis after attempting to deny Cavani what would have been his second ...
Because, against United, we lost three points and then you had to prepare a semi-final against Tottenham. "We must be confident for the future".

"It is very important for his confidence, for us, also because he scored two really important goals but also two handsome goals after combinations which showed good.
Update, 9:30 p.m. ET: Astros manager A.J. Hinch called the collision a "scary scene". Altuve and Hernandez were chasing a popup in right field and stayed down after the collision. Fortunately, Altuve didn't suffer a concussion and reported today that his shoulder feels good. Outfielder George Springer didn't start for the third straight game because of a strained left hamstring.
George scored 32 points and tallied eight rebounds and seven assists on Monday. "We know how good LeBron is going to be and how good Kyrie is going to be, but the other guys we have to be able to limit". But Love knocked down two free throws and C.J. Miles was whistled for an offensive foul, thwarting the Pacers' comeback. James said when asked how the Cavs would have handled a loss.
In both games of this series thus far, that has been the case. Stephenson was part of those teams that challenged the LeBron James-led Miami Heat. Yes, it would seem the Indiana Pacers are in trouble in their Eastern Conference first-round matchup against the Cavaliers.
Dwyane Wade (26 points, 11 rebounds, eight assists) almost recorded his first career playoff triple-double (shocking he doesn't have one, I know) to lead the Bulls. "Yeah, I hope so", Kidd said when asked about whether his players learned from the blowout loss. On the season, the Celtics are averaging 108.0 points, 42.0 rebounds and 25.2 assists per game.
