Riley said that one of Johnson's best games in the playoffs was one that he went 0-of-3 from the floor, but had big numbers in assists, rebounds and free throws. Johnson then chimed in, "That's why he's the best player". They were great in their time, we're great in our time. "We would say, 'We would have ran them off that gym, ' " Green said.
Gordon Strachan looked on the brink of losing his job as Scotland manager after a dismal start to the qualifying campaign for Russian Federation 2018 with a 1-1 draw against Lithuania followed by 3-0 defeats by Slovakia and England . But Snodgrass , who plays against those players every week in the English Premier League, says there is no reason to be afraid.

Comcast SportsNet had a chance to catch up with the 19-year-old Fultz on Tuesday, just moments after his first - and possibly last - National Basketball Association workout . The meetings will go a long ways in determining whether the Celtics select Fultz. "No, no, no, they didn't say that". "It's insane. I think it's a great organization", Fultz said, per ESPN's Chris Forsberg .
He shifted back and forth, making James change direction - "a little hesitation", Curry called it - so many times he looked like James was fresh off a merry-go-round. Heading into this June, Curry had a shaky relationship with the NBA Finals. It's eaten at him over the past year, of course. He was ejected in Game 6, and wasn't himself in Game 7.
Manchester City are looking to move quickly and secure two of Europe's best full-backs in Kyle Walker and Benjamin Mendy , following the arrival of Bernardo Silva . Silva says he was impressed with City when he played against the Blues in the Champions League a few months ago.

Like the weather veering from bright sunshine to threatening showers, New Zealand captain Kane Williamson made 21 bowling changes as the Black Caps successfully limited their suffering at the hands of England's deep batting lineup. England looked very good in their victory over Bangladesh and came into the tournament as the in form team. But the Black Caps looked more than competitive when Williamson and Taylor came together and it took an outstanding delivery from Wood to end a ...
But it was compelling. The Warriors' 132-113 victory on Sunday drew an average of 20.1 million viewers, up 13 percent from Game 2 previous year and the most for a Game 2 since Chicago and Utah met in 1998. But those stretches - like the Warriors' turnover-filled mess of a first half - seem fleeting given the team's remarkable ability to self-correct. That basket pushed the Warriors lead to 10 as Curry let out a scream and the crowd went into a frenzy.
Pekka Rinne - Nashville's netminder stopped 23 of 24 shots in a 4-1 Game Four win over Pittsburgh, lifting him to a.932 save percentage in the postseason. His latest goal came on a solid individual effort when he stuffed home a wraparound attempt but the goal was only awarded after a random horn sounded 35 seconds later to stop play and initiate a video review.
At Lord's, a green-tinged pitch did not find favour with Morgan but even on more placid surfaces the issue of how best to bat under grey skies, which can often set in all day in England , remains.

It looked a tricky match on paper for the 2015 champion but he recovered from a break down in the opening set to win 7-6 (7/2) 6-0 6-2. He dictated the game. "With the form I'm in I feel great on the court", he said. The conditions were a little bit slower today than the other days. But I would say past year I started to feel that I'm getting better on it.
It's the same situation again. "Sure, he wants to do better, but we're not anxious about it". OAKLAND, Calif. (AP ) - LeBron James and the Cleveland Cavaliers are headed home in a familiar spot after the first two games of the NBA Finals .
It's safe to say these games would have been even more one-sided without Love's contributions, which was especially clear in Game 2. Durant has taken a great team and perhaps made it one for the ages. And while history suggests that the Cavs still have a puncher's chance - after all, LeBron James and Co. last June became the first National Basketball Association team to rebound from a 3-1 deficit, earning Cleveland its major pro sports title since 1964 - last year's Warriors squad ...
The Swiss star, crowned French Open champion two years ago, heads into their latest showdown on a seven-match winning streak against the Croat.

Haynes noted Green's comments come after former Boston Celtics great Paul Pierce said Durant is now the best player in the league, a title many have bestowed upon James without much debate in recent years. Often spectacularly. As a result, the Warriors have run their postseason record to a flawless 14-0. "He's a big piece of our success and they know that, so they have neutralized that in the first two games".
Again, much of this is due to the Warriors, a quick, rotating bunch that reach shooters and close off spaces, forcing the Cavs out of their rhythm and comfort zones from deep. This has allowed Thompson to expend more energy on the defensive end and let Curry pick and choose his spots to let it fly. He needed 23 field-goal attempts just to put up 19 points in Game 2 .
Kvitova began things with a quick forehand victor; she compiled the first 10 winners of the match and finished with a 31-9 edge in that category. The Czech said: "It's weird".

It happens each year in the playoffs that a team is prematurely crowned a victor, and it often happens entirely too early in the series.

Jerry started by talking about the saying of it's not being over til its over in reference to Golden State's 2-0 series lead and the Cavaliers coming back from down 3-1 last year saying "yeah that is true but, the scenario a year ago when the Cavaliers came back from a 3-1 deficit...really don't see that happening this time, it's nearly impossible with how the Warriors have improved their team with Durant".
The Cavs have tried to go small against the Warriors, which Kerr countered by playing Durant at center - an absolute matchup nightmare for any team. Durant is chasing his first championship and seems determined to do whatever it takes. "Their offence is constant movement, so you got to be locked in, you can't take a peek somewhere and lose your man". So that's a pretty scary proposition for us.
Aaron Ramsey called on Arsene Wenger to extend his Arsenal reign after the Welsh midfielder fired his manager into the FA Cup record books. Those wins have papered over some of the cracks as Arsenal has often come up short in the Premier League and the Champions League, according to New York Times.

Chasing a very small target of 183 for a win, Australia were 83 for 1 in 16 overs when rained played the spoilsport at the Oval and the match could not be resumed after that. Morgan, asked if the players could concentrate on the job at hand, cited the way England had defeated South Africa in a bilateral series ODI in Leeds just two days after the Manchester attack as evidence they could do that.
In a bit of a hole after a brilliant start, England was 260 for 7 in 44 overs. Ben Stokes scored 48 and it was Jos Buttler's 48-ball 61 that lifted England to 310 before they were all out three balls short of the 50 over.

The Spanish champions were utterly dominant after the break, however. "I want to thank all of you", Zidane told fans as chants of his name rang around the Bernabeu. The greatest goalkeeper of his generation, Juventus's Gianluigi Buffon tasted defeat in his third Champions League final as the major missing medal from his illustrious career once again slipped out of his grasp on Saturday.
Now for the obligatory mention that the Cavaliers were also down 2-0 in last year's finals and were hearing numerous same things about how they had no shot of coming back. It's no if, ands or buts. "So we want to play with pace, but to play with pace you got to get stops". We forced them into 20 turnovers and they still beat us pretty good, he rued.
If you haven't noticed, history seems to be repeating itself. "But we are here, we're more focused on what happened past year like in terms of we were up 2-0 and we came here and the series shifted". Klay Thompson had 22 points for the Warriors. "We have won a lot of games playing the way we play, so we're not going to change".

But it should be remembered that the Cavaliers were 2-0 down at this stage past year, and they didn't take Sunday's loss lying down.
