Pittsburgh Penguins goalie Matt Murray (30) and teammates celebrate their 6-0 win over the Nashville Predators in Game 5 of the Stanley Cup Final Thursday night in Pittsburgh . Which leads us to a pivotal game five Thursday night at 7 p.m. Conor Sheary scored 1:19 into the second period to make it 4-0 over Nashville. And while many eyes will be on Rinne to see if he channels his inner Roberto Luongo and lose on the road again (sorry Lu, you know we love you), you also have to wonder ...
Conor Sheary scored 1:19 into the second period to make it 4-0 over Nashville. It didn't work. Saros gave up a goal on the first shot he faced. "That was a huge game", Rinne said. It's his seventh goal of the playoffs. The Penguins held a 3-0 lead following the first period of play. And so we head back to Nashville, where you know it's going to be nuts.
Deron Williams actually scored a bucket. Technicals - GS coach Kerr, Durant, Green , Pachulia, Dah.Jones, James, Shumpert. A fan heckling at the Warriors bench was escorted out of his seat and led out of the playing floor. In the second quarter, Durant again tried to help the Warriors mount a comeback, hitting a memorable leaner before completing an old-fashioned three pointer to pull Golden State to back within 11.
They now lead the best-of-seven series 3-0. You can also watch Game 4 live on the ESPN App or WatchESPN , but you'll need a cable login to access them. "I lay it all on the floor", James said, "and I did that tonight, gave everything that I had, both mentally and physically". "Why not? If I become an owner, I'm going to try to sign everybody".
Waddell , who referred to himself as a "dumb redneck with a bad idea" during an interview Tuesday with Nashville's 104.5 The Zone , explained just how he hatched and executed his plan to toss a giant catfish onto the ice of Game 1 of the Stanley Cup Final in Pittsburgh between the Predators and the Penguins.
That's 88 places and few hundred crores away from Ronaldo at number one, who banked a cool $93 million (₹597.5 crore). He is followed by Cleveland Cavaliers player Lebron James at No. Price is making $30 million in salary this year and $550,000 in endorsements. Vettel's $38M salary at the Scuderia equals Hamilton's retainer at Mercedes, but the German earned just a measly $500,000 in endorsements previous year.
One that can't get back to the creature comforts of Smashville fast enough. Offering the ultimate thank you, Kessel assisted on Malkin's 10th goal of the postseason with 11 seconds left in the opening period to give the Penguins a 3-0 lead.
The Lakers remain intrigued by Markelle Fultz and Josh Jackson at No. 2 with De'Aaron Fox a bit behind them. Ball raised some eyebrows by saying the Lakers "need a leader, a point guard, and I feel that I can bring that to the team"-potentially a slight to Russell".
You can also download the WatchESPN app to watch what could be the last game of the 2017 NBA Finals on mobile devices. LeBron James set an NBA Finals record with his ninth triple-double, and the Cleveland Cavaliers had the highest-scoring first half ever in the Finals while beating the Golden State Warriors 137-116 in Game 4 to stave off elimination on Friday night.
In any event, the Cavs are still breathing, and it's now the Warriors who may be feeling the pressure after blowing a 3-1 lead last June. "They wanted to spray champagne in our locker room", James said. James and Durant had a heated verbal exchange for an extended stretch midway into the third quarter while referees were reviewing a foul by Love on Durant, but they slapped hands when they returned to play.
It was about being the No. 3. It was Dillon's first NASCAR Cup victory and returned the iconic No. 3 Chevrolet to victory lane. Keselowski smashed into the back of Elliott and ultimately sent both cars to the garage and drivers to the infield care center.
The Warriors could become the first team in National Basketball Association history to go a ideal 16-0 in the playoffs. Combine that with last year's 73-win season, and a second title in three years -which could have easily been three consecutive championships -and foundation of the case has been made.
The 31-year-old Nadal, who retired last year before his third-round match with a wrist injury, is the only man with nine trophies from one Grand Slam tournament. "I don't know how it stays okay", said Halep. With the ranks of the female game up in the air with controversy and inconsistencies abound, both Ostapenko and Halep are presented with a golden opportunity on Philippe Chatrier come Saturday.
India will look for the historic first title which will it first team to win it thrice. Bangladesh suffered a humiliating 240-run defeat to India in the last warm up game before the Champions Trophy on Wednesday. Bangladesh , who recently tipped to the sixth spot in the latest ICC ODI Team Rankings, have always been in search of respect in the cricketing world ever since its inception at the global stage.
Despite holding a 15-30 lead three straight times on the Wawrinka serve, he failed to break through. Wawrinka was on the court more than twice as long as Nadal by prevailing in a four-hour, 34-minute marathon. "It s nice to be in the semis again, but I m really disappointed because I just couldn t play the way I wanted to". "But in any case, I'll give my all, do everything I can".
Golden State , in Cleveland until tomorrow night ( Friday ) to play Games 3 and 4 against the Cavaliers ( Wednesday and Friday night games) in this four out of seven series, will either sweep the defending National Basketball Association champions and celebrate winning the chip on Cleveland's home court, split win one/lose one, making it 3-1, or return to Oakland for Game 5 Monday with the series tied 2-2.
New Zealand and Bangladesh's hopes now rest in the hands of England . Joe Root is the highest scorer with 64 in 6 deliveries followed by Jos Butler who scored a quick fire 61 in just 48 deliveries. The match was effected by rain but overs were not reduced in either innings. He was supported by Ross Taylor (39) and opener Martin Guptill (27).
Bangladesh still need already-qualified England to beat Australia in the final Group A match at Edgbaston on Saturday, or for the fixture to be a washed out no result, to go through to the last four of an event featuring the world's top eight one-day worldwide teams .
The Cavaliers are down 3-0 to the Warriors and it looks pretty bleak. "I've gotten better , and 2013 is when I feel I really turned the corner as a defender". Wasn't destiny that had brought them together. LeBron James should hope Carmelo Anthony stands firm with his no-trade clause because his only realistic path to joining the Cavaliers is getting waived by the Knicks and signing as a free agent.
Kerber, 29, has struggled this year, withdrawing from the Madrid Open with a thigh injury and going down in straight sets to qualifier Anna Kontaveit in Rome. "I didn't think that I will play No 1". There were plenty of opportunities for her to clench a fist and scream "Pojd!" on Sunday against Boserup, who was making her debut in the French Open's main draw and facing a lefty for the first time.
The columnist called Curry's intent obvious before trashing his character, referring to him as "arrogant, whiny, utterly classless". "Of course Curry thought about what he was doing; he took his binky out of his mouth before pretending to relieve himself, then put it back in his mouth".
Whichever team wins its next match will qualify for semifinals . "It's a great scenario where you literally have two matches now which are going to be even more competitive cricket". "There's always hindsight. I thought we bowled decently, but when you don't execute properly, there is always food for thought". "The team that can have the most composure, I would say, to sum it up, will have a better chance of winning of the game tomorrow".
I qualify: Not with Durant's defense but with Durant's offense that can stop James . "I didn't know what happened, but I'm not going to be the one to say someone should not play, because you want everybody to be at full strength, right?" With the Warriors unbeaten in the postseason and a victory away from a second title in three years, a number of former players have said their teams would have beaten them.
Three games into the NBA Finals , it has come to this: The only way the Cleveland Cavaliers get a game in this series, let alone get back in it, is if they play flawless basketball. Now, there's one more win to come before the prophecy comes true. The Warriors are 15-0 and can finish off the NBA's first ideal postseason with a victory here in Game 4 .
With Indian Opener Shikhar Dhawan's fantastic century, Rohit Sharma and Dhoni fifties, team India could score 321 in 50 overs against Sri Lanka . India's bowlers were even more culpable after a lacklustre effort allowing Sri Lanka to win for the loss of just three wickets. Sri Lanka's current wicketkeeper, Niroshan Dickwella expressed his views on the famous victory over India in the ICC Champions Trophy 2017 during the post-match press conference.
The Lakers make sense if LeBron wants to build a sustainable victor with a core blend of veterans and youthful talent like Paul George - if, as National Basketball Association gossip suggests, George truly is " hell-bent " on going to L.A. - and Brandon Ingram.
It ended with haymaker after haymaker - both literal and proverbial - from the ever resilient Pittsburgh Penguins . Ellis has skated only two shifts in the second, a big loss for the Predators as they trail 5-0 and are well on their way to falling behind 3-2 in the series.
Wenger and chief executive Ivan Gazidis have conducted a full review of our on and off the pitch activities to identify areas for improvement to build a sustained title challenge. "Hopefully a change in system might be the thing that helps them win the title next year". Although fellow Gunners legend Martin Keown believes the club must sell star players Alexis Sanchez and Mesut Ozil , Adams believes the loss of the two would lead to a collapse next term and expects their rivals to ...
The Cleveland Cavaliers staved off NBA Finals elimination and ended the Golden State Warriors' shot at an unprecedented flawless run through the playoffs with a gritty 137-116 win on Friday. Then, in the oddest twist to a strangely officiated game, Green was whistled for what seemed to be his second technical foul - which would've triggered an ejection - except he stayed in the game when an earlier technical was changed or corrected to Kerr.
Raikkonen responded to controversially missing out on victory in Monaco by going fastest in practice, as the Ferraris and Mercedes looked evenly matched. Red Bull's Daniel Ricciardo may have avoided any spins, but that was only because he was in the garage for FP2 with an engine problem. Alonso said at the Canadian Grand Prix on Thursday that he will make a decision based on whether the team is competitive, saying: "If we are winning before September or something like that, I will ...
The bullet came off Austin Barnes' bat at 103 miles per hour and left Garrett on the ground in pain. Maeda joined Hyun-Jin Ryu, who piggybacked a Maeda start two weeks ago, as the only two Dodger pitchers with four-inning saves this season.
She then forced a decider before rain delayed play for another 20 minutes at 2-1 on serve in the final set. The elation of the 19-year-old was clear as the feat of her achievement in reaching a first Grand Slam semi-final began to sink in, after a 4-6 6-2 6-2 win over the 11th seed in just under two hours on court.
Despite the fantastic night from the Cavs , the Warriors still hung around. With the Golden State Warriors holding a 3-0 lead in this best-of-seven series - and carrying a pristine 15-0 record in these playoffs - it was hard to find anyone, even here in Northeast Ohio, who expected the Cleveland Cavaliers to find a way to send this series back to the Bay Area for Game 5.
However, if they they thought they had the Penguins figured out as a result of those two victories, they were badly mistaken. The best thing about my job is when I'm in work for two straight months, like the National Hockey League playoffs, I'm in a room with 20 televisions.
And sure, you can make the argument that had he shown more in training, he would have garnered more first team appearances, but he was only 19-years-old this season, new to the league, new to life in Europe and, let's face it, new to being an adult.
