This team, in particular, will live on forever. Lebron James may not have been the leading scorer in the game. Call it the start of a title defense. Along with all that, J.R. Smith spent a big portion of the night diving, defending and just generally playing like a victor. "I think at the end of the day, our main focus is to come in here ...
Though the New York Jets pulled off an impressive win against the Baltimore Ravens in Week 6, it came at a very costly price. Nevertheless, it's not asinine to consider giving Bryce Petty a shot to develop in gameplay, given the slim chances of NY making the playoffs for the first time since 2010.
Chelsea's N'Golo Kante scores their fourth goal in the match against Manchester United at Stamford Bridge, London October 23, 2016. But the Spaniard remains confident his blend of squad players and youngsters can pull off a repeat of City's Premier League victory at Old Trafford last month against a Manchester United side still reeling from Sunday's 4-0 defeat to Mourinho's former club Chelsea.
Ohio State remained No. 2 in both major polls behind Alabama. "That's a ballgame", Ohio State coach Urban Meyer told ESPN's Sam Ponder in the immediate aftermath. But, it wasn't enough on this night. WHAT PENALTY?: Meyer griped about the penalty called on him for sideline interference in the second quarter against Wisconsin .
Expect this trend to continue, with Denver's backfield taking on a similar look to what the Atlanta Falcons have done with Devonta Freeman and Tevin Coleman. With 4:08 left in the second quarter, the Broncos were up 14-6 and Siemian was 10 of 15 for 102 yards for a 108.2 rating. That's probably true, but that's also ignoring the situation of everyone else on the team that was, frankly, more important to be focusing on at that time than was Osweiler.
Leg-spinner Yasir Shah finished with six for 124 to secure his second 10-wicket haul in Tests as West Indies were bowled out for 322 before tea. At stumps, Jermaine Blackwood was unbeaten on 41 and Roston Chase on 17 as the two foiled Pakistan's bowling during an unbroken 47-run stand for the fifth wicket.
Even before Game 2 in Cleveland, Schwarber's stunning performance and quality of all his at-bats in the first game inspired repeated media questions about whether he could play in the field when the Series shifted to Wrigley for Games 3, 4 and 5, without the DH rule.
Seven fans were arrested, and authorities said rioting fans caught on videotape face stadium fans. "I am surprised more than disappointed because West Ham usually has a strong fan base who are very motivated". "It's a big game, of course". Hooliganism is not a problem in English football, according to Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger, despite a week in which disturbances at West Ham United's League Cup tie against Chelsea tarnished the game's glossy image.
England held their nerve in the Chittagong Test which ended on Monday and lead the two-Test series 1-0. Tamim brought up his eighth Test century with successive boundaries through the covers off Moeen, however the spinner's next over ended the batsman's imperious innings, his decision not to play a shot proving costly when a review resulted in him being given out lbw to leave Bangladesh at 171-2.
As a result, Kerber (2-0) is the only undefeated player in the Red Group and could clinch a spot in the semifinals without raising a racket in her third round-robin match. I don't care how much you miss by let your arm go. Halep did, but it wasn't enough as Kerber closed out the match on her third match point. "I have to adjust, be strong with my legs, and make the most of my chances".
There the three were in the heart of the order Wednesday, scoring four of Chicago's five runs to move the Cubs within three wins of the franchise's first World Series title in 108 years. Although, it took her until she was 90 before attending a game at Wrigley Field. "That's something I'm waiting to hear from our guys, from our medical side, because obviously he looks good".
And manager Antonio Conte firmly believes that the youngster is destined to be Chelsea's future, while also lauding the work done by the club's academy in bringing up talented players like Nathaniel Chalobah, Ruben Loftus-Cheek, Dominic Solanke and others.
Koeman feels he still has plenty to offer at 31 and says Everton would be keen if he did become available. Rooney has made 12 appearances in all competitions so far this season for United, but has scored just one goal and created five as he remains unsure of his future given the fierce competition for places in Mourinho's squad in the positions that he wishes to take up.
The problem with Verstappen was his Red Bull entry slow down too much, which was enough to install the virtual safety auto that gave both Hamilton and Rosberg the time to come into the pits for new tires. "Not many seasons there can be 100% reliability on a auto...will that be the case on Nico's?" "I was conscious that down the straight I was half throttle just "please don't go".
It's true that NY was facing the defending champs on their home court, but I still think a almost 30-point loss brings out the critics, even after just one game. The Cavaliers lead by as many as 32. If Rose can stay healthy and continue to push the pace while penetrating opposing defenses, space will be opened up for Anthony, Porzingis and the rest of the Knicks to operate within.
New Delhi, Oct 24:After taking a 2-1 lead in the five-match One-Day International (ODI) series against New Zealand, the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) on Monday retained the same squad for the remaining two matches of the rubber.
The team was to make the trip later Thursday and practice in London for the first time on Friday. What's yet to be determined is whether Reed or Norman will play in Sunday's game, the decision of which now falls on team doctors and, of course, on the players themselves.
Mourinho publicly criticised Shaw for his errors in his side's 3-1 defeat to Watford and since then he has not been a regular in the starting lineup. He believes there will be an extra onus on him to raise his game now that United's defence has been depleted by the loss of centre-half Eric Bailly for two months with a lateral knee ligament injury.
In leading the NFL's 31st-ranked offense in terms of yards per game, Kelly was open and honest after the Week 5 loss to Arizona that changes needed to be made in order to try to get the unit going. The offseason surgeries (to his knee, shoulder, and thumb) remain significant, in part because Kaepernick lost a ton of weight over the offseason while he recovered from them.
The Denver Broncos have relied heavily on the run to lead the way on offense, and for seven weeks that meant leaning on C.J. Anderson. The deal-four years, $72 million in maximum value-seemed inflated at the time and now seems ridiculous, even with the knowledge that no deal in the National Football League is ever what it first appears and that very, very few players see all the money the contract is alleged to provide.
UNFAMILIAR TERRITORY: This is the first time the Titans have reached the midway point of the season without a losing record since 2011, when they also were 4-4. After the slow start, Jacksonville outscored Tennessee 22-9 in the second half when the game was out of reach. Wide receiver Allen Hurns said he is anxious about Bradley being fired.
City have had some hard luck stories to tell during that run, as they should certainly have beaten Everton two weeks ago, missing two penalties in a 1-1 draw, and only took a point against Southampton last weekend despite controlling the second half.
Without Pep, Madrid went with Zinedine Zidane and won the Champions League. It's impossible to see Guardiola ever coaching Madrid, given he's Catalan and a Barcelona legend, both as a player and a coach. "Between November and December previous year when there was an important crisis with Benitez, Real Madrid contacted his [Guardiola's] agent [Jose Maria] Orobitg, asking him if there was the possibility to talk to him looking ahead to next season [2016-17]", he said.
Enes Kanter had 17 points and 12 rebounds and Steven Adams contributed 16 points for the Thunder , who were playing their first game since 2014 NBA Most Valuable Player Kevin Durant signed with Golden State as a free agent in the offseason.
Broad has been rested for the match, so the recalled Finn joins Chris Woakes and Ben Stokes in the seam attack. Off-spinner Batty, 39, featured in his first Test since 2005 when he was selected for the opening game in Chittagong - setting a new world record after missing England's 142 intervening Tests.
Svetlana Kuznetsova has reached the semis at the WTA Finals in Singapore . The deciding set went back and forth, Kuznetsova claiming her fourth match point with a backhand after eight break points had been converted en route to a tiebreak that Kuznetsova won 8-6.
Agnieszka Radwanska and Karolina Pliskova meet Friday in the third match of the tennis 2016 WTA Championships. The fifth seed saw off the sixth seed in a close-fought contest winning 6-2 6-7 (4-7) 7-5. SINGAPORE (AP) - Svetlana Kuznetsova became the first player to reach the last four of the WTA Finals after sealing her second round-robin victory this week, beating Karolina Pliskova on Wednesday.
LeBron James, Kyrie Irving and members of the organization accepted their championship rings containing more than 400 diamonds. Then it was business as usual. (For the record, that is the first time in history that sentence has ever been written.) The Cavs are defending champions and right next door the Cleveland Indians are in the World Series looking to end their own championship drought.
Larkham will still be based in Canberra after he finishes at the Brumbies and will be "heavily involved" in the appointment of the franchise's next coach. "I've been with the Brumbies for over 20 years and I'm very connected with the Brumbies organisation". "I've been with the Brumbies for 21 years and it was a really hard decision in terms of that", Larkham said.
The three-time Cy Young Award victor is 3-6 with a 4.79 ERA in 16 playoff appearances, including 12 starts. NOTES: Dodgers LHP Clayton Kershaw will start Sunday's Game 2 of the NLCS , manager Dave Roberts confirmed on Saturday .
Anderson in California on Thursday set to undergo arthroscopic surgery on his right knee , the Denver Broncos were faced with depth chart decisions. He finished the game with 107 yards on 16 carries, his first career 100-yard rushing game before Halloween. But I have a lot of confidence in Book, Kapri and whoever else is back there.
Getting the most minutes after Kawhi Leonard (32) and LaMarcus Aldridge (35) was Jonathan Simmons with 28 minutes on the floor. "Next time I dunk, I'm gonna yell again", Draymond declared after the loss. "What we can't do is let these games pile up", he said. Since Golden State added one of the NBA's top three players, predictions of the Dubs going 74-8 haven't been scarce, but the Bay Area superteam got off to a rough start against San Antonio.
Jose Mourinho confirmed Eric Bailly sustained a knee ligament injury during Manchester United's 4-0 defeat to Chelsea on Sunday. Mourinho's cold approach to his players has also disappointed some United players. "After a few seconds you are losing 1-0, then you go close to 1-1, then another defensive mistake and it's 2-0". I have to say incredible with capitals.
He is 3-for-7 with two RBIs in Games 1 and 2 of the World Series. Then again, maybe it's not such a surprise that tickets are so expensive. Now it's time to win those games and for the Cubs to become World Series champions. The same doctors who operated on Schwarber's knee back in April and cleared him to hit wouldn't allow him to play the field, citing the movement and potential stress on his knee.
In the short term, he will pinch hit, with the Cubs gladly taking any contribution from a phenom who was supposed to be lost for the year. It's been a combined 176 years since the Cubs or Cleveland have won a World Series. For Schwarber to play the outfield, the Cubs' medical staff will have to evaluate his ability to move laterally, something that is not fully required on the basepaths.
