Sturridge has no concerns over Liverpool future after goalscoring return

Having struggled to get past sides at home Coutinho is likely to be a key figure against the Teessiders who, if they follow the game plan adopted by most teams visiting Anfield, will be hard to break down. Sturridge's lack of playing time this season is bound to prompt speculation linking him with a possible move away from Anfield. " Barcelona is one of the best teams in the world, so far, nothing has come to me, because if anything comes, it comes to my manager, what I have to do is ... Read More »

Jose Mourinho Looks To Europa League Final After Tottenham Hotspur Defeat

And Eric Bailly should have been more motivated than ever to turn in a good performance after his reckless sending-off on Thursday which robs the side of their best defender for the Europa League final.

Mourinho added: "I can not go to Man City or Arsenal and put out five kids at the same time altogether". Read More »

Farah, who represents Malone, said the Facebook post was referenced during the beating and robbery. Malone apparently was upset that the NBA star was charging $250 for a basketball camp. We'll find out eventually if Malone is fishing for money or actually has some sort of proof that Harden was behind the assault and robbery instead of some random friends fighting in Harden's name.

Wednesday represented the first time the 35-year-old had driven a real IndyCar around the Indianapolis oval circuit, having only previously done work in the simulator.

And they did that today. Lowry was getting more treatment Saturday, adding that he's not "giving up hope" of being ready to attempt playing in Game 4. Olynyk's teammates were less pleased with Oubre's actions. C'mon man. Oubre didn't hit him that hard, nor should he have been suspended. Celtics big man Al Horford said. Read More »

Kimi Raikkonen too showcased some neat driving this weekend to finish third. We just need to sort out the interaction between the vehicle, the driver and tires. Fernando Alonso continued to struggle with his McLaren-Honda race auto as the driver reported loss of power during the formation lap itself. Lewis was one of the first ones to congratulate Valtteri on his first race victory and I think that shows the respect that they have towards each other. Read More »

Leonard's injury spotlights a debated and dangerous NBA play

You'd think a guy that's played as long as Zaza has would somehow not be this unaware of how close he was when he stepped under Leonard. We've played fairly well in the playoffs ... Popovich was referring questionable Pachulia plays against the Spurs dating back from his time with the Mavericks. Follow below for updates and analysis of Game 1 from our KENS 5 Spurs coverage team of Joe Reinagel, Vinnie Vinzetta, David Flores, and Javi Perez. Read More »

Isaiah Thomas loses tooth but Celtics win Game 1

perth_map

The All-Star led the Celtics to a first-round win over Chicago in a haze after learning the day before that series began that his younger sister, Chyna Thomas, had died in a auto accident outside of his native Tacoma, Washington. The Washington Wizards showed their lack of depth in the game one loss and it's why I'm not as high on them as others seem to be. "I was just so locked in that fourth quarter and overtime because I wanted to win the game so bad that I really didn't know what I ... Read More »

Wizards handle Celtics to tie series at 2-2

Boston won him over then Crowder told media that the Wizards were the less attractive option. John Wall and Bradley Beal are going to take over this game, much like they did in Game 1 . Since he arrived in a trade from Phoenix a year ago, some of that has rubbed off on teammates, like mild-mannered Kelly Oubre Jr. Washington were up 45-24 early in the second quarter when Boston's Kelly Olynyk was whistled for a hard foul on Oubre.

Zaza Pachulia responds to comments from Spurs coach Gregg Popovich

It's just not what anybody does to anybody else. "Ask David West, his current teammate, when Zaza was playing for Dallas and he and David got into it". And as Jeff Van Gundy said on the telecast, at least they should call a flagrant foul on the play, but it's sort of accepted as an unwritten rule that you can get away with this play. Read More »

Johansen takes aim at Kesler's play

Johansen, who the Ducks have chosen to match with Kesler through two games with home-ice advantage, said it doesn't make sense how Kesler plays the game. In the third period, with the Predators trailing by a goal, Johansen was frustrated enough to take a high-sticking penalty on Kesler. Johansen's comments are sure to lead to even more tension for Tuesday's Game 3 in Nashville . Read More »

Cavaliers complete sweep of Raptors, reach conference finals

I think he'll be able to continue what he's doing for a long time. "Whatever it takes to beat the best, that's what I've got to do". Joseph isn't wrong there. "I think I can do that anywhere I play", he said. I'm going to say it one more time. However, on Monday he sounded a bit more diplomatic. Lowry said before the season began that he would opt-out of his contract and reiterated that point during Raptors exit interviews after they were swept out of the playoffs by the Cleveland ...

The Capitals are as close as they've been to their first appearance in the conference finals in 19 years after rallying from a 3-1 series deficit by sprinting by Pittsburgh in the third period at home in Game 5 and then delivering a masterful performance 48 hours later in a city that's often been a burial ground for once-promising seasons.

Boston move one win away from Eastern Conference Finals

In the case of the Boston Celtics on Wednesday, they got a convincing home win in Game 5 without star point guard Isaiah Thomas' best effort.
