Avery Bradley may have hit the final dagger against the Cavaliers, but Marcus Smart's superlative effort in the Celtics' upset win in Game 3 should not go unnoticed. The loss snapped the Cavs' flawless 10-0 start to the postseason, which James said can be a good thing in preparing Cleveland for its ultimate goal of back-to-back championships.
Alkins wrote on twitter, "After much thought and consideration, I have chose to continue my college career back in Tucson at the University of Arizona". Now Arizona is set at wing and possesses a nice blend of talented freshmen and experienced veterans at the other spots on the floor. Because of the returning players, the Wildcats are ranked high in the preseason polls - and that's without Lauri Markkanen who is still in the NBA Draft.
Kim clinched the second PGA title of his career by concluding the Players 10-under 278, outpacing runners-up Ian Poulter of England and Louis Oosthuizen of South Africa by three strokes. World number one Dustin Johnson carded a final round 68 to finish tied for 12th while number two Rory McIlroy ended with a 75 to drop to equal 35th.
The move was not too significant, and after one season at tackle, the team shifted Long right back to guard. Long is still recovering from an ankle injury that he originally suffered against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers last November. Each of the first two seasons of his career came at right guard as well, before he transitioned to right tackle in 2015. Long returned to the right guard position last season but dealt with a rash of injuries.
The Predators became the first National Hockey League team in 20 years to win 10 straight postseason home games when they defeated the Anaheim Ducks 2-1 Tuesday in Game 3 of the Western Conference final. There's a real good chance he does so, but it won't be because Johansen isn't willing to go up against Kesler. "That's not going to go away". Ottawa has been playing too well as a team for too long now to not consider them a threat in this series and they have already shown they have it ...
Bellerin put Arsenal ahead after eight minutes and although they lost Laurent Koscielny to a red card shortly afterwards Sanchez doubled their lead before halftime.

"It's back to 50/50 now", Porter said to USA Today on the possibility of reclassifying. "There's a long list or pros and cons for both things", Jontay Porter said.
A victory in Game 5 or at home in Game 6 would've ended the series. Probably not for the Washington Capitals and Anaheim Ducks. The problem wasn't that Holtby was playing poorly, but he wasn't stealing any games for the Caps either. He scored twice in Game 1, picked up a pair of assists in Game 2 and had seven points in five games against the Blue Jackets in the first round. The action opens with the Pittsburgh Penguins and Washington Capitals battling to determine who will face the ...
In Game 6, Bryant bounced back with 26 points on 30 percent shooting, 10 rebounds, four assists, two blocks and a steal. James' 11 points was his fewest in a playoff game since he scored seven points for the Miami Heat against the Indiana Pacers on May 28, 2014.

Billy Horschel was the eventual victor in a playoff against Jason Day after the world number four missed a very small putt and picked a awful time to record his first three-putt of the tournament. For a rookie like me, who's just a nobody, he was super cool. "The other three I was playing well going into them and this one I wasn't, I can't lie, I didn't have any success ".
At last, a return from an injury is something to write home about. In his National Hockey League playoff debut, the rookie proved the people right. The Senators head coach used that storyline effectively during the Rangers series, going as far as saying his players were just happy they didn't get swept following a Game 1 victory over NY.
Lava Kumar and Mr. Kusa Kumar. The makers are shooting some crucial scenes in Hyderabad and NTR is playing three roles in this movie. Young Tiger Jr NTR is now very much busy with the shoot of his new film titled as " Jai Lava Kusa " under the direction of Bobby .
Ducks coach Randy Carlyle made no definitive pronouncement on Gibson's availability Monday night but expressed optimism with the goalie being able to work out and face shots in the team's optional morning skate at Bridgestone Arena. "Peter is such a great motivator", Fiddler said. With so much star power on the shelf, it wasn't surprising that a lesser-light would stand up and take advantage of the opportunity.
However, the Gunners' fate wasn't entirely in their hands, to begin with. Part of a side relegated to the Championship 12 months ago, Wijnaldum propelled Liverpool towards the Champions League. Wenger was quick to dismiss questions over his own plans at the end of the season, with the Gunners readying themselves for an FA Cup final date with Premier League champions Chelsea at Wembley on Saturday.
Dixon's third Indy pole since 2008 - the same year he won his one and only 500 - would have been hard to predict when the season kicked off in March. Without it, he could have been on the front row. It's going to take time , but I'm feeling pretty good since the surgery. Scott Dixon, of New Zealand, watches with his wife, Emma, the final attempt to knock him off the pole during qualifications for the Indianapolis 500 IndyCar auto race at Indianapolis Motor Speedway , Sunday, May 21, ...
So when it bounced around, I was actually hoping it went in, obviously, but not completely disappointed that it was bouncing up there'. Cleveland leads the series 2-1. What's much more important than Game 3 is how well James has played for the entirety of the postseason. James had his worst night of the playoffs in Game 3, scoring only 11 points on 4 of 13 shooting.
He had one Sunday night, a dud that opened the door for the Boston Celtics to score the most improbable victory of the playoffs to this point. They were one day removed from their best player, Isaiah Thomas , being shut down for the remainder of the postseason due to a hip injury.
British Mercedes driver Lewis Hamilton described the competition from German Ferrari driver Sebastian Vettel in the Spanish Grand Prix as the toughest he could recall. Those seconds meant that when Vettel emerged from a second pit stop he was neck-and-neck with a hard-charging Hamilton. The Russian GP victor did an excellent job of slowing up Vettel, furiously defending his position to allow Hamilton to sneak up to Vettel.
It has taken 14 matches across seven cities encompassing 14,358 air miles, from Istanbul to Rostov-on-Don in southerly Russian Federation via Odessa on the north-western shore of the Black Sea, to reach this point and the prospect of falling at the final hurdle would be a crushing blow.
Rafael Nadal added Carlos Moya to his coaching team past year and Kei Nishikori has worked with Michael Chang, while much of Andy Murray's recent success is owed to his strong relationship with Ivan Lendl.

Selectors announced 15-men squad for upcoming Champions Trophy. Prasad further added: " Jasprit Bumrah and Hardik Pandya are youngsters we've been grooming". It can be argued that two wickets in five IPL games is no great shakes, but Shami has had the selectors' faith ever since he returned to global cricket last July after a long gap.
It's worth adding that there is no indication as to how long the discussion between the pair went on for, so it's probably a bit of a stretch to suggest that Van Gaal was divulging a detailed, player-by-player analysis of United's squad to the Ajax boss.
Subban one-time feed and ended game one under halfway into the first overtime period. The 2011 NHL MVP managed only 19 goals during the lowest-scoring full regular season of his career, but he has surged while reunited with Getzlaf in the playoffs.
There are some other reasons that we will talk about another day. But the psychological environment for the group of players was absolutely horrendous. Goals by Hector Bellerin , Alexis Sanchez and Aaron Ramsey sealed victory for Arsenal on Sunday but they now have a defensive headache for next week's Wembley final against Chelsea .
There was little for Arsenal players to celebrate with fans as they embarked on a lap of appreciation after the Premier League finale. A 16th trophy could follow at Wembley, where he could yet make a 718th appearance, although he is likely to be a substitute at best.
The former number one advanced to the second round at the sun-drenched Foro Italico as she beat the American for a fifth time without defeat. But as I said, every week is important. The Italian Open organizers were criticized for giving a wild card to Sharapova instead of former French Open champion Francesca Schiavone , an Italian.
It also ended the champions' 13-game post-season winning streak dating back to last season. Then, after a missed shot and a turnover, Love knocked down a triple from the left wing.
