The Finals may have ended shortly in five games , but they were filled with record breaking performances. At the rally, Green mocked James' contention that James had never played for a super team. He also called Trump a "blowhard" and said he's unfit to be president. The Golden State Warriors got a real deal on one of the NBA's best players.
Johnson was three over for the round with three holes to play. For Rory McIlroy and Jason Day just to make it to the weekend at the 117th U.S. Open it will take a climb of similar proportions. Wind is the other defense at Erin Hills, but it was relatively calm Thursday afternoon and it isn't forecast to blow harder than 20 miles per hour. Mickelson, who celebrates his 47th birthday on Friday, believes he will have more chances at that elusive U.S.
White makes reference to the fact that McGregor is a southpaw and Mayweather has usually had more problems with these kinds of fighters. That was the first real taste many casual fight fans got of McGregor , although he had been fighting in MMA since 2008.
They made their group plea to Kevin Durant last summer, Stephen Curry and the core of the Golden State Warriors traveling cross-country to go at a prized free agent the only way they do it around here: with "Strength in Numbers". Not to mention a healthy one after his 2016 injuries. Green stayed on the court in a game that featured three technicals on one play 3:08 before halftime.
Chasing a below-par 212, the Green Brigade rode on a brilliant 118-run opening stand between Azhar Ali (76) and Fakhar Zaman (57) before Babar Azam (38 not out) and Ali helped the team with a 55-run second-wicket stand to set their date with the victor of the second semifinal between India and Bangladesh , on Sunday.
New York Yankees right fielder Aaron Judge (99) hits a home run to left center field during the sixth inning against the Baltimore Orioles at Yankee Stadium .

The Warriors completed a 16-1 playoff run, the best post-season win percentage in National Basketball Association history. But it was Durant, who left Oklahoma City for Oakland at the end of last season, who carried the team . "We learned from everything we've been through", Curry said during the trophy celebration. I'm just excited to do something special. Two courtside seats reportedly went for $133 000 on the resale market while other pairs of seats went for $82 000 and $90 000.
Determined to avoid the embarrassing rules mess from a year ago, the USGA is shaking up the way it officiates the U.S. Open at Erin Hills. Even the first and second cut is another ten yards on top of that. The fact that he's putting so well, and the look of this golf course, and the fact that a U.S. Open doesn't often give you four looks at par fives - guess who leads the pga tour in par five scoring average? I don't really know what we're in for this week.
Predators goaltender Pekka Rinne was pulled after allowing three goals in the first period. Justin Schultz , Bryan Rust , Conor Sheary and Ron Hainsey also found the back of the net in the decisive win and Matt Murray pitched a 24-save shutout, his third career in the playoffs.
To the delight of hometown fans, Sidney Crosby and his Pittsburgh Penguins became the first team in nearly 20 years to have back-to-back Stanley Cup wins. Sissons and Filip Forsberg each hit the post in the third period. This playoff year, they didn't have Kris Letang , their only all-star on defence, in the lineup.
But on Tuesday, in the wake of her son's first ever National Basketball Association title win, Wanda joined First Take again and got the chance to gloat in front of Smith. "It's a championship. It's a great feeling". The Warriors went on a 21-to-2 second-quarter run. Asked before the game if his team would approach the game as if it had "nothing to lose", Cavaliers coach Tyronn Lue responded, "We do have something to lose: a championship".
Murray hasn't played his best tennis in this tournament, but he finds ways to push through and has shown he doesn't have to play great to beat great competition. Murray's clash with Wawrinka is a repeat of the 2016 semi-final in Paris , which the Brit won in four sets. "If someone is intentionally slowing a match down they should be punished for that, but umpires are always going to have to make decisions of how they deal with it".
The fun starts Thursday, June 1, Cavaliers vs. Warriors III. Whether he coaches or not, Kerr said he plans on flying to Cleveland with Golden State for Games 3 and 4. The 2001 Lakers team that, like the Warriors, went to Finals undefeated won by an average of 13.8 points. Last year, Klay Thompson averaged 24.4 points in the playoffs while shooting 44 percent from the field, and 42 percent from three-point range.
In this his second full season with legendary Wood Brothers, NASCAR's oldest continuous operating team, he had come close on several occasions to that initial victory. Busch won the pole at Dover International Speedway. Kyle Busch won the pole for today's Axalta presents the Pocono 400 without his crew chief, Adam Stevens, on the pit box, and that's a good thing - because Busch won't have Stevens' services for the next four races.
On Thursday, Green, whose suspension from last year's Game 5 for hitting James in the groin helped swing the series to Cleveland, said he was looking forward to celebrating on Cleveland's home floor for the second time in three years. In your average 7 games series, a 3-1 lead for a team is the equivalent to a finished series. The pressure the Warriors players would feel for the rest of the series would be unlike any pressure they have felt in their careers.
So what kind of weirdness, if any, can we expect in Game 5 , a home closeout game for Stephen Curry et al? It's not the Warriors' fault they flash-fried the league. Despite Cavaliers' win, Warriors are favourite to win the National Basketball Association title as they lead Cavs 3-1 in the best-of-seven finals. Now back at home , their offense should be better and Cleveland won't be able to keep up.
They know we weren't at our best. At the very least, he needs to go to a place where Jake Guentzel doesn't exist. It was Guentzel's 12th goal of the playoffs, which is the most of any American-born rookie in playoff history and just two behind Dino Ciccarelli's all-time rookie record of 14.
Whatever the source, Thompson's renewed fire was noted and much needed by the Cavs as they faced elimination. Against the Warriors . It's true, no team has come back from 0-3, not just in the Finals but in the playoffs, period. "It's the Finals. You know?" But as J.R. Smith said after Friday's win at The Q: "Ain't nothin' we ain't seen before". "So I'll just leave that at that".
Volume is important. After taking 60 total 3s in Games 1 and 2, the Cavs attempted 89 in Games 3 and 4. Green sat in his vehicle in the parking and called Myers, telling him he had to sign Durant. The Warriors have championship DNA, and we do as well. "We're battle tested, they're battle tested". However, the defending champions did not allow themselves to blow another lead and they finished the game beating the Warriors , 137 to 116.
But this one I have to be a little smarter, use my legs and quickness to get open and free myself to get offensive rebounds". "I didn't want to travel, and Draymond was kind of playing Double T, and Double T kind of had his back towards me, so I just threw it off the glass and went and got it".
Not again, the Warriors felt. The 27-year-old no longer flies under the radar and reducing his impact is a major part of opposition teams' game plans. "Obviously, I can play better", said Stephen Curry (14 points, 4-of-13 shooting). We're still a special team as well. "So that first quarter they came out and hit us with that wonderful punch; 49 points in the first quarter is way too much".
With No. 1 defenceman Kris Letang gone midway through the season, they finished 14th in shots for and against at five-on-five; going into Game 2 Wednesday night, Pittsburgh had the second-lowest percentage of five-on-five shot attempts of any team in the playoffs at 46.9 per cent, which in the regular season would make them the 29th-ranked team in hockey, and then it got worse.
Bigger than all of them and all of that. The Warriors popped champagne inside the bowels of Quicken Loans Arena in 2015, having clinched the series in six games. There is no way of knowing if LeBron would have made that shot if he got it airborne. LeBron James turned in one of the greatest NBA Finals performances in history during a losing effort in a pivotal Game 3 against the Golden State Warriors on Wednesday.
Australia's pacemen, led by Mitchell Starc , have started to find their form and they would love nothing more than a go at the old enemy this weekend. They shared 83 for the third wicket, and Williamson became the first batsman to score four successive 50-plus scores in the Trophy, before running himself out on 57.
