Earlier in the playoffs, he told TV reporters, "I've been into hockey for pretty much all my life. We have enough guys who have revamped their style and for other guys to grow and be the players people may or may not have believed they could be where they are now".
Stephen Curry said to Green, two lockers over. We're not here to be down and moping around and sad. Asked about Paul's status after the Game Six loss, D'Antoni said: "Not thinking about it". Now he and the Warriors are just waiting on head performance therapist Chelsea Lane to clear Iguodala. Will Paul be able to go for the biggest game in the National Basketball Association this season, and the biggest game of his life? Back in 2016, Thompson scored 41 points on 11-for-18 shooting on ...
It was billed as Salah versus Ronaldo, but the shoulder injury caused by Sergio Ramos's cynical first-half challenge put an end to that sideshow and gave Liverpool the challenge of proving they could prosper without their star man. Instead of waiting 2 more seconds for Karim Benzema to clear the penalty area, the Liverpool goalkeeper rushes the throw, which Benzema quickly reacts to, scoring one of the more weird goals we've seen this season.
Houston pulled out a 98-94 win over Golden State in Game 5 that gives it a 3-2 series lead, pushing a team many thought was unbeatable to the brink of elimination. Going back to Game 4 , Harden has missed his past 20 3-point attempts, the worst drought of his career. I don't mind our backs being against the wall, because I know what we're capable of, and I know the level of focus and intensity level that this team brings when that is the case.
This will not be an easy task for James and his buddies, who will try to hand the Celtics their only loss in 11 postseason home games. The Boston Celtics are somehow one win away from taking down LeBron James and reaching the NBA Finals.
The batsman will headline the league alongside a crop of big names including fellow Australia global Chris Lynn and a number of West Indies stars. According to Fairfax, Cricket Australia is "fully supportive" of Smith playing T20 during his suspension.
Or, at the very least, amend it to protect players who choose to peacefully protest during the anthem. "Maybe you shouldn't be in this country". The NBA sent a memo to teams in 2017 that said its league office "will determine how to deal with any possible instance in which a player, coach or trainer does not stand for the anthem".
Incredibly, the preliminary round draw for the Champions League - which features teams from Andorra, San Marino, Gibraltar and Kosovo - takes place before the World Cup has even started, with matches scheduled in the middle of the tournament.
The Champions League final was a momentous occasion with Real Madrid and Liverpool tussling it out in Kiev for the big European glory. He told reporters, "Right now I have a biological age of 23". Salah, on the other hand is overwhelmed by the fact that he is being compared to Ronaldo and Messi- the two greats of this generation. Ferdinand also pointed out the way Salah has emulated Portuguese star Ronaldo by becoming more clinical in his game.
Just two minutes and two seconds after his introduction for Isco, Bale scored one of the great Champions League final goals , sending a beauty of a bicycle kick flashing past Loris Karius. Earlier on the game, Jurgen Klopp indulged in his own wild celebrations, merely for Real Madrid being denied the lead when Karim Benzema was ruled to be offside.
After some mild criticism for his style of play, Durant still had an impactful game-he scored 23 points and repeatedly got to the free-throw line to offset inefficiency from the field. Curry was the engine, particularly in the second half. The only question now is if the Rockets will return home as Western Conference champs or with a Game 7 against Golden State on deck.
Welshman Bale came on just past the hour with the score at 1-1 and after three minutes produced an astonishing bicycle kick finish and then netted with a speculative long-range effort that somehow went through the hands of the unfortunate Karius.
The midfielder was also a target for Spanish champions Barcelona . The Red Devils finished in second place in the Premier League table in the 2017-18 season to secure a spot in the Champions League for the second successive season. Di Marzio's report also states that Manchester United are looking to sign a back up striker in the summer. Manchester United's summer recruitment drive looks set to begin in earnest.
Now, is Durant the sole reason why the Warriors find themselves down 3-2? As far as the point guard's status for Game 6 goes, "We'll see". The Golden State Warriors have lost four of their last six road games. The Rockets believe they can absorb this loss and don't seem daunted by the setback, noting that they found ways to win in the regular season in many games where Paul sat out with injuries.
Asked if Salah can star again for the Reds in the final, the 2005 Champions League victor told talkSPORT: "Yeah, definitely". It was a night which confirmed Real's ability to superbly manage the biggest of games. It's really sad - I can't find the exact words to describe it. That he did it with a stunning 94th minute victor against Congo only added to his legendary status, although given Egypt's incredible record at the continental level, you wondered why it took them so long.
Earlier, Sunrisers' batting looked haywire as they kept losing wickets at regular intervals in front of a disciplined bowling from KKR but the Afghan's blistering cameo in the last two overs ensured their bowlers had a respectable total to defend.
The Celtics will be challenged to close this series on the road, with the undesirable possibility of having to trek back to Boston for a winner-take-all Game 7 with James on the opposite side. LeBron James takes Jayson Tatum one-on-one twice in a row late in Game 6. Terry Rozier had 28 points and Jayken Brown added 27 for Boston.
Real's 12 European Cup wins puts them way ahead of the rest, but Liverpool have lifted the trophy five times , most recently in 2005, against AC Milan in Istanbul. Milner returns to the side after missing the Premier League finale through injury, while Can returns to the bench and could play for the final time in Liverpool colours.
Verstappen's disastrous Saturday in Monaco followed a run of incidents in the early part of the 2018 F1 season, but he insisted he still had the Red Bull team's full support. Mercedes attempted to negotiate Q2 on the Ultrasoft tyres - as opposed to the Hypersoft tyres - but both Hamilton and Bottas were left in the drop zone and the team abandoned that tactic.
Liverpool will participate in their first Champions League final in over a decade on Saturday, despite Klopp having limited options available throughout parts of the 2017-18 season due to numerous injuries and the sale of Philippe Coutinho in January.
While the Rockets will be down a starter, the Warriors could get one back if Andre Iguodala can return on Saturday. Golden State takes advantage of opponent weakness as well as anyone and in front of its home crowd tonight, I think this game has blowout written all over it.
He said, 'I'm going to show you I'm still a great player.' And he did". This is not the best Capitals team of the Ovechkin/Backstrom era. "You can't go anywhere without goaltending, and he's been solid", Trotz said. Now, they've got to do it again against the expansion Vegas Golden Knights , who are Western Conference champions in their inaugural season. The Lightning is 5-0 when scoring first in Game 7, while Washington is 2-3.
He is now highly unlikely to play any further part at Lord's and will miss the second and final Test of a two-match series at Headingley that starts a week on Friday. England have never lost a May Test at Lord's but that record is under threat like never before. Ben Stokes, who had hoisted Shadab for six, was lbw on review to Abbas for 38.
In recent weeks, Salah could be found at news conferences promoting a cellphone company, a logistics firm and taxi service. Madrid thrashed Juventus 4-1 in last year's final to become the first side to successfully defend the trophy since the competition was renamed the Champions League in 1992.

Arsenal are interested in signing Roma midfielder Lorenzo Pellegrini this summer, according to reports in Italy. The Gunners view long-term target Lichtsteiner as an option that would add experience and leadership to new head coach Unai Emery's squad.
The player has made such an enormous impact at Lyon that he has also been entrusted with the club captaincy. Fekir impressed in Ligue 1 this term, scoring 23 goals in 40 appearances. There has been persistent speculation linking Fekir with a £60million move for the past three weeks but Klopp dismissed an initial story, which was published in France on the day Liverpool were beaten 1-0 by Chelsea at Stamford Bridge.
Liverpool are within touching distance of a sixth European crown and are looking to deny holders Real Madrid a 13th title when the teams face off at Kiev's Olympic Stadium on Saturday. But it's really the thing that players need help in these moments, and they need a clear opinion. That feeling of unity around the club has not been restricted to within the dressing room, either, as players and supporters have shared several special moments throughout the campaign.
Terry is certain to start on Saturday, with Steve Bruce likely to pick the ex-England global alongside James Chester. If Fulham beat Villa then they will surely look to strike early and their rich ambitious owner look to tie up the striker on a permanent deal.
People like him who can bring us all together. Karim Benzema's brace in the second leg against the Germans was crucial, but neither he nor Gareth Bale have been close to Ronaldo's standard this season. He has been ably supported by Roberto Firmino and Sadio Mane, with that threesome netting 90 goals between them in all competitions. I play with the head.
Manchester United are close to completing the signing of Shakhtar Donetsk's Brazilian star Fred, as per an exclusive report from Manchester Evening News .
