I prefer to play for the title instead of not fighting for the title and being calm. Last season, Chelsea had no pressure in 10th place and you play calm, you are happy. Because the league is like the league is, [the other teams] have three, or maybe next week after the [FA Cup] semi-finals, four games less. Yes, you know that when you sign him.
  • Paul Millsap: Wizards playing MMA in Game 1 win

    Sports

    This first bucket of the game comes in the Wizards half-court offense as John Wall and Marcin Gortat execute a simple 1-5 pick and roll for an uncontested 12 foot jumper by Wall. James Harden had an equally impressive season leading the Rockets with renewed focus to 55 wins under new head coach Mike D'Antoni. Brandon Jennings was eventually able to get out in transition and set up guys for easy baskets in the second half, but his defensive woes still remain a huge concern.

    The Thunder guard finished with 23 points and 12 rebounds, but eight assists as his teammates missed several shots after getting a dish from their MVP candidate. For James, the explanation was simple. "We've had some good moments and some not-so-good moments - like today". The Cavs are still trying to hold off East rivals Boston Celtics for the top seed in the Eastern Conference.

    Silva was, naturally, also involved in City's second, a Guardiola-hallmarked 20-pass confection starting with goalkeeper Claudio Bravo and ending as Sergio Aguero claimed his 10th goal in 10 matches. "Of course the second goal is what we would like". "We need to start translating our home form to when we go away because in front of our own fans we are playing well and with a lot of confident", said Silva.

    He needed just three runs to become the first batsman to reach 10,000 runs in T20 cricket and once he got to the mark, Gayle moved into fifth gear in next to no time. Splitting his 10,000 runs in the T20 format Gayle has scored 3,283 runs for RCB, 1,519 for the West Indies national team and 1,452 for his local franchise Jamaica Tallawahs.

    Sergio Aguero threatened twice in the opening few minutes as City started at pace, first volleying a hard half-chance wide from Kevin De Bruyne's pass and then turning his defender and sending a low, angled shot spinning wide. I know what I have to do and as long as I can organise the people around me, I can always get a performance. "Last season Manuel [Pellegrini] was so upset he could not use him and this season is the same".

    However, Yuzvendra Chahal (3/31), who claimed the early scalp of Dwayne Smith, bounced back well from the early battering he received to also dismiss McCullum and Suresh Raina who came in at number three. He hit two sixes and four fours in the last two overs, in which Royal Challengers smashed 35. He picked up three important wickets that swung the match decisively in RCB's favour.

    In the last round, Craig Shakespeare's Leicester side overcame a similar 2-1 deficit against Sevilla, winning 2-0 at home in the return to set up the Atletico showdown. "I hope the benefit of this is they want some more [European football]". "What they did really well when they went to a three is they managed to get a lot of people down the wings and get crosses in".
