Rinne blanked the Blues after Alexander Steen scored with about seven minutes left in the second period. Hampus Lindholm - The Ducks blueliner was on the ice for five goals for and none against in a 6-3 Game Three win at Edmonton. Defenseman Kris Russell had a pair of assists for the Oilers, who took Game 1 of the series 5-3 and Game 2 by a score of 2-1. It might well have looked more believable, in fact, on Friday in Anaheim.
James then stopped, grabbed a beer out of a fan's hands and almost took a swig. The game turned, said Lowry and DeRozan, on Toronto's defensive lapses. Trevor Ariza top scored for the Rockets with 23 points, with James Harden adding 20. All of those worries seemed unfounded as the Cavs surged to an 18-point lead early in the second quarter.
Boston Celtics player Isaiah Thomas loses tooth during National Basketball Association playoff match
We definitely missed him, but I will tell the guys - there's no excuse. "That's the easy way out". "One of the things I love about our team is we're going to keep competing", Brooks said. "It's tough, but it's the playoffs so there are no excuses". Instead just taking what they give you, you can decide to take what you want. Morris's absence would leave Gortat with only some help from Smith to deal with the Celtics' rangy center, Al Horford.

Just last month, the Bears signed former Tampa Bay Buccaneers backup quarterback Mike Glennon to a three-year, $45 million contract that guarantees Glennon $18.5 million in the first 12 months. But let's take a moment to actually look at Trubisky and what expectations should be for him in Chicago. But do you think the Bears were unaware of that possibility? A strong case could have been made for trading down to add picks rather than move up.
Golden State Warriors forward Kevin Durant did not practice on Tuesday because of a left calf strain and is questionable for Game 2 on Wednesday night against the Portland Trail Blazers. Game 4 is set for Monday. The defensive ace had three blocks to go along with 12 rebounds and 10 assists.

"But we have trained very well this season and we have a lot of energy to face this type situation", Conte added. "Gary trained yesterday and also today", Conte said.
Stroman still isn't sure exactly what he did wrong in De Jesus' eyes, since he didn't get an explanation and he used the same abbreviated delivery later in the game without getting called. While Martinez may have made an error of omission based on inexperience at the position - he learned it on the fly in spring training to help earn his first Opening Day roster spot - it's hard to argue that Martinez hasn't earned more at-bats.
They've gone just 40-43-4 against the spread this season, but they failed to produce just once in the series with the Los Angeles Clippers, when they lost Game 3 at home. When faced with the likelihood of quitting, the Clippers didn't quit, and their legacy just gets nuttier. His return helped compensate for the loss of Griffin and is a big reason why they made it to a seventh game.
Right or wrong, quarterbacks tend to dominate the pre-draft conversation every year, whether they deserve the attention or not. As for whether Garrett wants to meet Hall of Fame pass-rusher Warren Sapp, who called Garrett a "lazy" player not worth the first overall pick, Garrett shrugged.
He claimed his client had exhibited no suicidal tendencies, and had been released from isolation after two days, but then put back in after his relationship with Hernandez was revealed in news reports.

The Bulls scored 32 points off Rondo's assists, the most points off assists by any Bulls player in franchise postseason history.

They haven't won a playoff series since advancing to the Stanley Cup Final in 2005-06. If the Oilers fail to knock off the Sharks in game six, then game seven would be back in Edmonton on Monday night. With the Sharks inside the Edmonton zone, Paul Martin couldn't handle an off-target pass from Chris Tierney back to the Oilers' blue line. Joel Ward, Tommy Wingels, Tomas Hertl and Karlsson each had one, complementing the top players like Couture and Joe Pavelski, who combined for six ...
Ross broke the NFL Combine's 40-yard record with a time of 4.22 seconds, which unlocked the future for the former Panthers football and track star, who went on to earn All-American honors at the University of Washington. When is it OK to pick a running back in the top five? He's shown that he is the best defensive lineman in the draft behind Garrett, and could help out a team like the Bengals.
But you know, that's the pursuit. The Jazz witnessed first-hand why this Clippers squad has been dubbed " Lob City ". "I hope he's great". I was still high from one of the all-time best Jazz games in Game 1 . We've lost a first game and won a series . They are an even 19-19-3 at home this season . It led to a win, but it was the smallest margin of victory over the Jazz out of the four wins this season .
Still, the Clippers have a 2-1 edge in the series right now. It was Utah's first home playoff win since 2010. The Clippers held on and won game three in Utah 111-106 to take an advantage in the series, but gave that advantage right back after Sunday's Game 4 .

Rumors emerged Monday that the 49ers are considering taking Trubisky with the second overall pick, which seems like a smokescreen as opposed to a real possibility. "I think we chop up the variables so much in the preparation process, over the years there is less anxiety for me", said Tomlin. In a podcast appearance with Albert Breer of The MMQB, Banner said he was "beyond shocked" when the Browns picked Johnny Manziel in the first round of the 2014 NFL Draft.

It all added up to the most lopsided playoff win in Sharks history and biggest shutout win in 10 years in the National Hockey League.
After game one, Millsap made a point of calling out what he considered overly aggressive play from the Wizards - "They were playing MMA ", he said .

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.

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.

"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".

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 .
