Celta are rounding off their domestic season with nothing to play for following their deep run in the Europa League where only a missed last-second chance at the Old Trafford stood between them and a historic qualification to the final.

Since then Las Palmas have won just one game and suffered defeats to sides such as Sporting Gijon and Leganes, while conceding five goals against both Atletico Madrid and ...
Terry may go down as Chelsea's greatest ever player but he will only be ranked in third place on his club's all-time appearance list - behind both Harris and Peter Bonetti.

Isaiah Thomas and the Boston Celtics noted on Monday night that they would be underdogs against the Cleveland Cavaliers in their upcoming Eastern Conference finals matchup.

With Kawhi Leonard recovering in his home, it's highly likely the Golden State clinch the Game 2 to night. "It's tough and we all knew it", he said. Game 3 is at 8 p.m. Saturday at the AT&T Center. We saw how the San Antonio's fate turned upside down in the third quarter, and a full matchup of that kind of unimaginative effort will quickly turn the second game into a blow-out.

The Cavaliers come into the series well-rested, as they haven't played a game since May 7.

The Real Madrid took their game win over Atletico Madrid by the final result score of 3-0 at the Bernabeu in the first leg of semifinal on Tuesday night.

His stifling interior defensive presence, along with the frenetic energy of the home crowd, spurred the Raptors on to two straight victories to even that series at two games apiece. They'd missed their first 12 three-point attempts before Powell finally ended the long-range drought with 3:09 to play in the third quarter. Those first two quarters proved to be markedly different for the Cavs offense.
I think he did an incredible job and I think Alexis [Sanchez] knows his name because the kid really played very well."It was hard for me to manage the game because the players that I wanted to replace are the players that, in principle, start the game on Thursday".
Hopefully they can utilize whatever Olynyk used before Game 7 to get some extra luck for these next few nights, too. I think we did a great job for 18 minutes, and then they started making shots. Over the first two rounds of the postseason, the Celtics have lost twice at home, to the Chicago Bulls in the quarterfinals, and three times in Washington in the semifinals.
They're at home, it's the last game of the season, and it's a must-win scenario. City's clash with Watford at Vicarage Road is the other game to be televised on the final day, and will be shown on Sky Sports 2. The 30-year-old midfielder will be hoping to play a part in helping Chelsea make a successful return to Europe next season. The champions (Chelsea) and relegated teams (Hull, Sunderland and Middlesbrough) were already decided, but Alexis Sanchez sank Sunderland to keep Arsenal in ...
I don't know what's going through his head out there", Johansen said. "I don't know how you cheer for a guy like that". Shots and hits can be inflated or undercounted by statisticians, but the Predators clearly carried the play in the second period, when they held the Ducks to four shots - but one of those was Perry's sharp-angled goal against Pekka Rinne, at 15:35, during a power play they gained when Nash-ville's Cody McLeod got an instigator penalty for fighting Ducks forward Jared Boll.
The Spurs were without injured All-Star forward Kawhi Leonard . They say they're focusing on continuing to get better and the next game against the San Antonio Spurs in the Western Conference finals.

Fowler, who strained his throwing shoulder in a 5-4 loss to visiting Milwaukee on May 4, has been somewhat limited since. With Stephen Piscotty due back Friday and Jhonny Peralta nearing a return as well, it will be interesting to see how the roster and playing time allotments shake out over the next few weeks.
Shami, whose last one-day worldwide was the 2015 World Cup semi-final, replaced leg-spinner Amit Mishra while Sharma came in for opener Lokesh Rahul, who is recuperating from shoulder surgery.

He says he's been done wrong and maybe there's a country song lurking somewhere in this. Of course, Urban's good friend, singer Carrie Underwood, was also at the game on Tuesday, supporting her husband, Predators team captain Mike Fisher.
Courtesy the 9-wicket win, RPS climbed to second position in the eight-team standings, and thereby booked a date with the Mumbai Indians in Qualifier 1 on May 16. It's on the slower side and the ball is stopping, and Pune's score of 160 may be a fighting one. This time is will be hard to repeat the same against Mumbai as 2 of the key player in the Pune squad will be missing as Ben Stokes and Imran Tahir have flown back home.
Arsenal must win their final game at home to Everton on Sunday and hope Liverpool slip up at home to relegated Middlesbrough if they are to guarantee a 20th successive season of Champions League football.

The Russian said: "I apologise for having to withdraw from my match today with a left thigh injury". Former world number one Martina Navratilova said this month that Sharapova should now be allowed to get on with her tennis and as a two-time champion in Paris could justifiably be given a wildcard into the main draw.
They were words that were clearly created to fire United fans into life as Mourinho's side look to make a final step into the Europa League final, with an injury problem to match-winner Rashford one of the concerns coming out of the game. "It is not one I want or the players but it is a competition where we are and that is the reality". Hopefully, if we get to the final, he can score again.
The Spurs will tip off the best-of-seven series on Sunday afternoon in Oakland against a Golden State Warriors juggernaut that is undefeated in the postseason.

The roles were reversed two minutes later as Neymar's chip freed Suarez to dink home his 36th goal of the season. Should Zinedine Zidane's troops prevail over the Europa League semifinalists, they would then just require a point in Malaga to be crowned champions.
She had said she would "play the junior competition" if it meant she could compete at the French Open - a tournament that has provided some of her greatest career moments. The Russian, 30, was ranked too low to gain direct entry as she continues her return from a 15-month drugs ban. The five-times Grand Slam champion, one of the sport's biggest names, is guaranteed a place in the Wimbledon qualifying event but will need a wild card to get straight into the main draw at the All England Club.

Tsonga, who reached the quarterfinals here in 2013, said he felt a pain last week while training and then again at the end of the match against Andrey Kuznetsov.

The Tottenham manager also played down fears that the club might lose forward Dele Alli this summer, after the England worldwide admitted that "anything can happen at any time" in an interview this week.

But Madrid will be confident of beating a Celta Vigo side in 13th with nothing to play for this season after being eliminated from the Europa League by Manchester United in last Thursday's semi-final second leg.

"I expect Celta's players to be professional, as they always are against Real Madrid , and to give the maximum possible".
But then, the police yelled at him, telling him to pull over. With Steve Kerr unable to coach, assistant Mike Brown has been the man in charge of the Golden State Warriors which might be the easiest job in the sport. "I'm going around behind the bus and I get this phone call". Brown says he was pulling up to the arena next to the San Antonio Spurs' bus and was essentially told to get in line and wait for the bus to pass first.
Nadal has now equalled Novak Djokovic's record of most Masters 1000 titles won, having picked up his 30th crown at that level on Sunday. Rafael Nadal was made to work hard before claiming his fifth Mutua Madrid Open title with victory over Austria's Dominic Thiem in Sunday's final.
The last-ditch effort for Arsene Wenger to save his job could work should the Gunners make the top four and win the FA Cup final against crosstown rivals Chelsea. With only two games left in the 2016-17 Premier League season, Arsenal's chances of a Top Four finish are dwindling down to nothing! "I don't even think about percentage, I just think about let's make sure we win the game, because we play against Everton".
