In what should be no shocker to anyone reading this mock draft , the Cleveland Browns will select Myles Garrett from Texas A&M with the first overall pick on Thursday. I fully expect quite a few trades as their chess match unfolds, but here is my six round (they don't have a seventh), Browns draft to give you a little insight on what they might do.
The Rockets took down the Spurs in six games, before winning their second straight championship a round later. Look through all the advanced metrics in MVP debates, all the arguments about how good teams need to be, or how much the playoffs matter, or how much one on one would matter.
For me, in the context of this seven-game series between the Thunder and Rockets, Game 2 proved that no matter which way Russ plays, it won't be enough to lift Oklahoma City unless somebody else steps up when Westbrook sits. McDermott finished with 11 points in 14 minutes. A exhausted Westbrook just kept jacking up shots, many of them bad ones, and he shot. Westbrook had four straight points to start a 7-1 run after that, but the Thunder wouldn't get any closer.
Cup (1-0) - but Mourinho got his own back against his former club this time. This time he was United s match-winner, setting up Marcus Rashford s seventh-minute opener and netting with a deflected shot early in the second half. But it is a great feeling to know it is hard for us to lose a match. "I'm looking to play as many games as I can between now and the end of the season".
Rondo averaged 11.5 points and 10 assists over the first two games, and came within one rebound of a triple double with his 11-point, 14-assist, nine-rebound performance in Game 2. It was the first time a No. 1 seed dropped the first two games to a No. 8 seed since 1993, but in that series, the Phoenix Suns actually ending up moving on, beating the Los Angeles Lakers.
Switzer went on to be the women's victor of the 1974 New York City Marathon and provide TV commentary in Boston for the last 37 years. Switzer was given a number for the men's-only race in 1967 only because she used her initials - "K.V." - when she filled out her entry forms.
The Brazilian superstar inspired Barça in their remarkable victory over Paris Saint-Germain in the previous round, producing 10 truly exceptional minutes towards the end of the second leg to turn the tie on its head. He also spoke on coach Massimiliano Allegri's future at the club. "Unbeatable" Juventus can finally hand goalkeeper Gianluigi Buffon an elusive Champions League title after making five-time winners Barcelona "cry" in the quarter-finals.
Yes, the Bulls took care of business in Boston in ways they didn't even think possible, according to Dwyane Wade. "Everybody's putting in extra work, watching that film, working on their game". Al Horford , Jae Crowder and Avery Bradley have all come up small in some capacity in this series. We just have to get together. When pressed on possible changes to the starting lineup, Stevens said simply, "I don't know".
Injuries to Phil Jones and Chris Smalling leave Mourinho mean Shaw is likely to feature in a big week for United, with the trip to Anderlecht for Thursday's Europa League quarter final followed by Chelsea's arrival at Old Trafford on Sunday.
He has now purportedly moved into the top three on most team's draft boards. Third, it is more likely than not that the Browns select a QB with the #12 pick, or trading from that pick. The Cleveland Browns took the draft by storm a year ago by swapping the second-overall pick to the Philadelphia Eagles for a bushel of future selections.
This team should be supremely motivated to capture Game 2 at home and will play tough. With Jazz center Rudy Gobert out for Game 2 tonight, conventional wisdom says the Clippers will bounce back to earn a split in the series . The 203cm tall, 29-year-old from Adelaide has the nickname Slow-Mo Joe, but Jazz management and rival National Basketball Association coaches love him, including Los Angeles Clippers' Doc Rivers .
In Saturday's game, Middleton had 10 points with nine assists. Milwaukee's star averaged 24.8 points, 7.8 rebounds and 7.0 assists in 4 regular-season against the Raptors. But we've had success doing it. A poor fourth quarter was the deal closer. NEED TO KNOW Boston point guard Isaiah Thomas is preparing to play Game 2 before flying out to Tacoma, Wash., to be with his family to finalize funeral arrangements for his younger sister Chyna Thomas, 22, who died in a auto accident early ...
The men's race was an excellent two-man battle between 24-year-old Geoffrey Kirui of Kenya and the 30-year-old Rupp, as both competed in the third marathon of their careers. Marcel Hug of Switzerland edged 10-time victor Ernst Van Dyk at the finish line to win his third straight Boston Marathon wheelchair title in 1:18:04, breaking the 2012 course record.
There were moments in the beginning of this emotional game when it looked like Isaiah Thomas wasn't going to make it through. Isaiah Thomas took the floor to a deafening cheer for the Boston Celtics' playoff opener against the Chicago Bulls on Sunday night, just a day after his sister was killed in a vehicle accident.
The Canadiens won't be able to manage 58 shots in Game 3 in NY, so that should lead to fewer goals, as Lundqvist is still playing quite well. St. Louis Blues' David Perron (57) and Alex Pietrangelo (27) celebrate after their team scored the winning goal against the Minnesota Wild during the third period of Game 2 of an NHL hockey first-round playoff series Friday, April 14, 2017, in St.
In this "Last time they met" series, we're going to look at the current National Basketball Association playoff matchups and review the last time these two teams met in the playoffs. A Toronto win could give them some added confidence heading into the postseason, but I still like the Cavs at home. "My cousin drove me to Applebee's last night", he said.
The Cavs , who went 10-14 over March and April and ended the regular season on a four-game losing streak, are wiping the slate clean as they enter the postseason. "We had some key injuries that set us back, but for the most part, it's pretty much the same". A third straight NBA Finals matchup between the Warriors and Cavaliers is still considered the most likely outcome according to the sportsbooks.
The series starts with that first game on ESPN at 5:30 PM Eastern. Meanwhile, the Toronto Raptors have been led by DeMar DeRozan who had a great season with averages of 27.3 points, 5.2 rebounds and 3.9 assists per game while Kyle Lowry was averaging 22.4 points and 7.0 assists per game before his injury late in the season kept him to just 60 games on the season.
Leicester thought they had a tough night tonight, it will be a lot tougher next week. And you would be foolish ever to write off Leicester after last season's title fairytale, even if overcoming Atletico would surely represent their biggest scalp to date.
That pressure might change on Saturday, knowing what the Senators now know: with a bit more pressure, they could have been the ones to exit on top. It was the first time the Senators had held an opponent without a shot in an entire period in their history, and the first time the Bruins went shot-less for an entire period in a playoff game since 1939.
Westbrook might be an incrementally better offensive player than Leonard but he's not almost as efficient, while the Spurs star is miles ahead of Russell defensively. Harden did the unexpected. Harden is having an unbelievable season for Mike Dantoni and the Rockets, but when that offense is clicking, the point guard should put up wonderful stats.
After Round 1 on Thursday, it didn't look promising for American golf phenom Jordan Spieth to win his second Green Jacket in three tries. "I'm certainly looking for my first Masters and my first green jacket". "I certainly know anything can happen on Sunday", said Spieth , referring to his collapse previous year. This was the first major playoff for Rose while Garcia had lost his only prior major playoff to Ireland's Padraig Harrington in the 2007 Open.
Griezmann was the standout performer and almost added an assist to the only goal but Angel Correa couldn't quite stretch to reach his risky low cross 17 minutes from time . "We're kind of thriving at the minute", Leicester midfielder Danny Drinkwater said. "It was definitely a foul, but it was outside the box". In the home game the Spanish team was unable to score, but she did not miss.
Will it be Rose or Garcia take home the Green Jacket? This was the first major playoff for Rose while Garcia had lost his only prior major playoff to Ireland's Padraig Harrington in the 2007 Open. "There's nothing that says I'm going to play bad or that I should play bad". Then chipping and putting kind of went sideways on me. World No.6 and 2015 Masters victor Jordan Spieth suffered a bogey on his opening hole and has dropped another to slump to two under.
For the rest of it, Golden State took over. OAKLAND, CA - Golden State Warriors Head Coach Steve Kerr earned his 200th career regular-season coaching victory tonight in his 238th game at the helm, becoming the fastest coach to reach the 200-win milestone in professional sports history, according to the Elias Sports Bureau.
When asked about the Grand Slam, Garcia said , "You can't win them all if you don't win the first one". "It's a great time in my life". I felt cool, calm and collected. "But, at the same time, it is all a learning process". I just want to win here. "Just go out there and have fun, simple as that". Sergio Garcia has been through the mill, but his playoff triumph over Justin Rose to clinch the Masters on Sunday released a torrent of relief and 18 years of pent-up angst.
One could easily make an argument that Kevin Durant deserves to be higher on this list than Thomas. Skal Labissiere played an awesome game scoring 32 points and chipping in 11 rebounds and 2 steals . He's also averaging 1.5 steals per game while going to the foul line more than anyone else in the league - almost 11 times per game. The 28-year-old plays like a man who won't be denied, so it's fitting he's put together a tour de force season that makes it hard to deny him the MVP either.
Instead Andros Townsend scored a squibber, Yohan Cabaye knocked in a banger, and third-choice goalkeeper Emiliano Martinez pulled down Townsend in the box, leading to a Luka Milivojevic penalty goal. In 20 seasons in charge of the Gunners, Wenger has never failed to secure a top-four place - but his side now lie seven points adrift of fourth-placed Manchester City.
And when Garcia pulled his drive and needed to take a penalty for an unplayable lie at the 13th hole, it seemed Rose was destined to win. Garcia made the early running, with two birdies in the first three roles as Rose maintained his steady pace, eventually catching up as the pair reached the end of the front nine eight under.
Chasing a target of just 149, all that Kings XI required was a calm head leading the way. By the end of the powerplay period, Amla, handed a reprieve on 20, had raced to 26 from 15 balls. AB went on one knee and nailed a slower ball over the cover fence and ended the innings with a six that cleared the roof for the 2nd time . England's Ben Stokes took charge with 50 off 32 balls and gave the innings some respectability by adding 61 runs off 37 deliveries with Manoj Tiwary, who remained ...
At one under par, McIlroy was in red figures for just the second time this week and three off the lead shared by Sergio Garcia, Charley Hoffman, Thomas Pieters and Rickie Fowler. Sunday marks the 60th anniversary of the birth of Seve Ballesteros , the greatest golfer from Garcia's native Spain and a two-time Masters victor. "I just, you know, "what would Arnie do" was my way of expressing it to Michael, which we all know is exactly what he would have done".
Masters rookie Jon Rahm (70), one of the pre-tournament favourites given his recent form, was a further shot back along with American Ryan Moore (69). 6 and bogeyed five of six holes. But the way the course was playing these first two days, it was very easy to make bogeys. We have Sergio Garcia chasing his first major title, playing in the final pairing with the Olympic gold medalist and 2013 U.S.
But for those chalking it up to a weather oddity, five Brits finished in the top 10 in last spring's tournament, including its victor Danny Willett . Johnson hurt his lower back Wednesday at the house he was renting. "To pull out of the Masters when you're in the kind of form he's in, it must be a very hard decision to make.
