Bulls' Rondo likely out for rest of series against Celtics

Now the Bulls must do something they haven't done this series - win a home game. Even if the Bulls tie the series, Rondo will probably be out for the decider.

Leafs had a season to remember


To Washington's enormous credit, it still wasn't quite enough. Their resolve in taking over the game after conceding the 1-0 goal suggests this probably isn't the same Capitals team of yesteryear (turns out playoff "clutchiness" is something tangible and acquirable, in the form of Justin Williams).

Nick Bonino: Nick Bonino scores game victor over Caps


With all due respect, Holtby said he had bigger worries than Guentzel when Guentzel was on the ice. "Bones is a guy that's a high-stakes player", coach Mike Sullivan said.

Then the Capitals proceeded to play as if they prepared for this series by spending a week at the House of the Rising Sun, going on to lose 3-2 to Pittsburgh in Game 1 of this best-of-seven series.

Sharks' Thornton, Couture game-time decision


The Oilers had four more attempts, two on goal, one wide and finally a block by Smith, who kills the remaining second by diving headlong to push the puck out of the zone and down the ice as the two-man kill expires and the roof is almost blown off by the crowd's wildly supportive response.

Conte looking to make Chelsea impenetrable again

Sometimes the stats are not true, above all for possession. "But the stat about clean sheets is an important stat". Nemanja Matic has been excellent alongside N'Golo Kante in recent games so I think we'll see him retain his place while Victor Moses and Marcos Alonso should occupy the wing-back roles once again.

North London clubs thriving with three at the back

That being said, the team have issues with the big blow of their star defender, Sakho, who is out for the season.

Oilers win and eliminate Sharks

The Oilers won, 3-1, to eliminate the Sharks. The Blues will take on the Nashville Predators in the 2nd round. Pittsburgh will either be playing the Washington Capitals or the Toronto Maple Leafs . That's my job obviously. I don't see San Jose making a run for the Cup with the core as it's now constructed and bringing back Thornton and Marleau makes the team better at a time when San Jose needs to lose to get a better draft pick.

Bottas says team orders "worst thing to hear" but "completely understands"

Pit penalty and a late charge from Lewis Hamilton who finished second didn't damper Ferrari's victory chances a bit with Mercedes team mate Valtteri Bottas finishing third. Ricciardo finished fifth for Red Bull ahead of Felipe Massa who took sixth for Williams on team founder Frank Williams' 75th birthday.

Easy for Nadal in Monte Carlo


Rafael Nadal claimed a record-extending 10th Monte Carlo Masters title as he geared up for his beloved French Open with a 6-1, 6-3 victory over fellow Spaniard Albert Ramos Sunday. Nadal's 50 clay titles breaks the record he shared with Guillermo Vilas since April previous year when he lifted his ninth trophy in Barcelona. Ramos-Vinolas hit just 9 winners and also 25 errors and with these numbers he couldn't hope for a better result against the king of this event. Read More »

Larry Bird stepping down as Pacers president


How Bird's decision will impact the outlook for star forward Paul George , who has one guaranteed year left on his current contract , is the key question.

As coach, the Pacers went to the NBA Finals in his final season in 1999-2000, losing to the Los Angeles Lakers in six games. Read More »

Powell scores 25 as Raptors beat Bucks 118-93 in Game 5

Tucker said Monday morning in advance of Game 5. "He's an x-factor. So many times [teams] are concerned about DeMar and Kyle, and rightfully so, that next guy, that next instigator [becomes] the guy in this series". There would also be stretches when Powell would not make the rotation for several games . However, they went 4-for-9 on those same wide-open 3-pointers, and that was more or less the difference in the game . Read More »
