Warriors drop second in a row with loss to Timberwolves

The Wolves displayed some of their sharpest ball movement since Butler went down, fueling an early lead that rose as high as 11 points late in the first quarter. Iguodala was out with a left wrist sprain for the second straight game. This was Rose's first on-court action since February 7 for Cleveland , against Minnesota . Read More »

Antonio Conte to consult Chelsea players on tactics for Barcelona return


Perhaps the ex- England boss is cursing his former assistant Gary Neville, as his comments will have given Antonio Conte a point to prove, the most sure-fire way to stir up the fiery Italian. "And for us, as you know very well, it's important for us to have a balance during the game because when we lose that balance anything can happen with our team". Read More »

Wood scored a third goal as West Ham imploded on and off the pitch, with the team three points above the relegation zone and no doubt facing serious repercussions from the game's authorities.

Phillies sign Jake Arrieta to three-year, $75 million deal


It's hard to top that sort of success and dominance, but Jake Arrieta has come down to earth and has done so quickly. The timing makes sense, as the first domino finally dropped in the free agency impasse as Lance Lynn signed a one-year, $12 million deal with the twins. Read More »

How to watch Tiger Woods' final round on Sunday


Woods charged up the record crowd with a birdie putt from just inside 45 feet on the 17th hole to get within one shot. Woods grabbed a share of the lead when he two-putted for birdie on the opening hole, but he gave it back after he missed a five-footer for par on the 4th. Read More »

"They kind of hurt us, beating us on Senior Night", Russell said. Read More »

Smith: Anyone's guess if Rabada will be reprimanded for send-off

It was a helter-skelter period for SA but De Villiers and Quinton de Kock (9) steadied the ship for a while before Nathan Lyon bowled the wicketkeeper. Mitchell Marsh then effected two LBWs, first trapping Faf du Plessis for seven followed by Theunis de Bruyn for one. He also had a small word with Mitchell Starc, the last of the five wickets to fall. Read More »

The latest shot that Floyd Mayweather chose to take was a photoshopped image showing him MMA gloves and elbowing the UFC lightweight champion, Conor McGregor .

Duke Basketball: Tough Test Awaits Blue Devils in ACC Tourney


That play flipped the switch and completed Notre Dame's miraculous comeback that ended with a 71-65 win over the Hokies. But in the month of March, inexplicable things tend to pile up in droves. Carolina is 8-2 over its last 10 contests. The Irish outscored the Hokies 45-18 over the final 15 minutes of play to seal the six-point victory. Its 43 first half points was tied for the second most scored by Clemson this season. Read More »

Giants to release Rodgers-Cromartie


Per Garofolo, the sides are "far apart". He would have counted $8.5 million against the salary cap in 2018, and the Giants will save $6.5 million by releasing him. It's possible the Giants decide to cut ties with the veteran cornerback and save a nice chunk of change, despite him being a fan-favorite. The 2017 season was a hard one for the 10-year pro who didn't have an interception and was suspended for one game by then-coach Ben McAdoo for leaving practice without permission. Read More »

Lipinets' Refreshingly Honest Reaction To Garcia Loss


There are a couple of holes I need to close. "I'm going to keep trying to dominate each fight and make it easy for myself in the ring". A lot is on the line for Garcia: should he win, he holds a lot of cards by holding two world titles. "He's very risky with that overhand right and those left hooks but we were able to prevail". Lipinets proved to be a tough task against the experienced Garcia, he was able to bloody the nose of the Oxnard, California native and give him a tough time . Read More »

Clippers Welcome LeBron to LA


Many would speculate about where James went and what exactly he did during those two weeks. They didn't score in the final two minutes of the Magic game, aside from Brook Lopez's game winning free throws with 0.6 seconds left. If James or Kevin Love were not excellent during the early part of that season, the team lost. Defensively, we could have done better. James finished the night two rebounds shy of yet another triple-double. Read More »

Rabada destroys Australia in the first innings


South Africa is in a strong position after bowling Australia out for a below-par score, when fast bowler Rabada took 5-96 before padding up and helping South Africa see out the last few overs of the first day with the bat. We weren't taking wickets but we felt in the game the whole session. However, CSA soon took the legal action on those officials and also released an apology statement to Cricket Australia and David Warner to close the matter at its earliest. Read More »

Craig Bellamy predicts whether Arsenal will win the Europa League


The north London side can still qualify for Europe's premier club competition if Arsenal manage to win the Europa League just as Manchester United managed to do under Jose Mourinho last term.

Fired-up Rabada takes 5, Australia out for 243 in 2nd test


De Villiers made a magnificent 126 not out and had good support from the tail as South Africa took a first-innings lead of 139, scoring freely before they were all out for 382 shortly before the scheduled lunch break. Vernon Philander (36) and Keshav Maharaj (30) helped De Villiers add 84 for the eighth wicket and 58 for the ninth wicket as South Africa dominated a sunny morning. Read More »

Stephen Curry sprained his ankle for the second time in a week


This is a serious, recurring problem. Curry tweaked his troublesome right ankle driving left for a layup at the 9:38 mark of the first quarter with two Spurs around him. Head to head, the home team is 4-0-1 ATS in the last five meetings, the Warriors are 1-4 ATS in the last five meetings in Minnesota and 3-8-1 ATS in the last 12 meetings overall. Read More »

Amla was out for 56, opener Dean Elgar followed next over for 57, and allrounder Mitchell Marsh picked up two wickets as Australia's bowlers went on a run of four wickets for 28 runs after tea.

Matt Wallace pips Andrew Johnston in play-off to win Indian Open title


Johnston shot a final-round 66, Wallace a 68. As it had happened in the tournament in the past years, exciting tussles are expected in the fourth round on Sunday. Like Shubhankar, the Englishman, too, was troubled by the tough course and a hard 17th hole. I'm very pleased with the birdie at the last, which allowed me to grab a share of the lead. Read More »

Kansas State Wildcats vs. Kansas Jayhawks Odds Preview 03/09/18


Sneed would later finish with 13 points, marking the 19th time this year Sneed has scored in double digits. And people would steal the ball from him. "I have nothing to say about the last five minutes", North Carolina coach Roy Williams said, able to joke because ultimately it turned out OK for the Tar Heels. Read More »

Lovren and van Dijk preview Manchester United clash

For them it will be maybe a good point but for us, we never play for a point. We understood each other quite well and hopefully, we can do it also in the future like that. "It is not easy because we are also humans and everyone has problems". "The desire to win is bigger than ever since I came to this club, because I always wanted to win and to chase trophies".

Giants Decline Comment On Viral Video Of Odell Beckham Jr


There have been no indications that Beckham has ever failed a drug test while in the NFL . The pair appear to be sitting on a bed, with a medium-sized pepperoni pizza in front of them. Cuenca said she has been contacted from someone within the Giants organization since the video was published, but did not elaborate further on the specifics of the conversation. Read More »

Tiger Woods 'excited' by chance of Valspar victory


But all eyes are on 14-times major victor Woods , in just his fourth official start since spinal fusion surgery - his fourth back surgery - last April. Now comes the hard part, with Woods , Rose and Snedeker breathing down his neck.

North Carolina survives Duke comeback, advances to ACC title game


It only seemed appropriate that Grayson Allen's last appearance on an ACC basketball stage would be accompanied by controversy. Even in an arena where J.J. "We've got to go in there and try to play the ideal game", Williams said. Playing in the ACC tournament for the first time as a sixth seed, North Carolina opened a 34-27 lead against the Blue Devils on Saturday with 52 seconds left in the first half on a pair of free throws from Garrison Brooks .

ICC charges South Africa's Rabada with Level Two offence


Rabada began expensively before lunch, conceding 47 runs, but then returned to claim five wickets for the loss of just 13 runs on either side of tea and effectively turn the game around. "From what I've heard there was a lot of personal stuff being said, to and from". It was understandable that Rabada would at least be exuberant after dismissing Smith, who spent much of the second session building a steady little partnership with Shaun Marsh. Read More »

Tough day for Aussies in South African test


Rabada will have a disciplinary hearing in Port Elizabeth on Sunday, the South African team said. A South African team spokesperson said later they were awaiting feedback from match referee Jeff Crowe. He was visibly disappointed when he edged Pat Cummins on to his stumps for Australia's only breakthrough of the morning. Amla successfully reviewed twice before the 88-run stand was broken in emphatic fashion by Mitchell Starc, whose pinpoint yorker beat the veteran's defence and blew ... Read More »

Huddersfield boss David Wagner frustrated for Swansea draw


Under Clement we were the most defensive team I've ever seen - 1/2 shots per game if we were lucky. I think Huddersfield will be well up for it and we've performed poorly on the road recently despite picking up the odd point so I think we'll lose 2-0 sadly. Read More »

USWNT honors Marjory Stoneman Douglas shooting victims during SheBelieves Cup


Before the match at Orlando City Stadium, there was a moving moment of silence for the 17 victims of the Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School shooting. The U.S. had defeated Germany and tied France in its first two games of the round-robin tournament.
