Sports

The Raptors , playing without injured point guard Kyle Lowry , led by three points after the first half. Alas that was not to be and the Raptors wound up on the wrong end of a 115-94 defeat and are now just a game away from a second four-game sweep in the past three years.
  • Penguins C Crosby making strides after concussion

    Sports

    Niskanen sounded a little more regretful than Ovechkin. That's the way they like to play. They've been so accustomed to dealing with injuries that there is not a team in the National Hockey League that is better equipped to deal with the loss of key personnel than they are.
  • IPL: Royal Challengers Bangalore collapse to another defeat

    Sports

    On RCB's batting woes, he felt, "Your main batsmen went for the glamour shots instead of looking to play proper cricketing shots". Earlier the Royal Challengers scored 158-6 thanks to 52 from 43 balls from Mandeep Singh and 75 not out from 47 balls from Australia's Travis Head.
  • Spurs, Rockets try to wake up NBA's sleepy second round

    Sports

    That's nothing like the type of basketball they played against each other during the season series, when the Spurs outscored the Rockets by an average of 104.8-102.8 while winning by six, two and two. "It wouldn't be a very good situation if me and Clint got into foul trouble". Harden remained in the game after the timeout and drained a step-back 3-pointer of the 7-foot Pau Gasol with the shot clock about to expire.
  • With Nene, Tony Parker Gone, Spurs-Rockets Battle Man Down

    Sports

    Houston Rockets guard Patrick Beverley was playing with a heavy heart this weekend during the team's Game 4 win over the San Antonio Spurs. The Rockets medical staff is now reviewing treatment options. Harrell, a second-year player who averaged 9.1 points and 3.8 rebounds per game during the regular season, is another option to back up Capela. Nene's minutes will likely go to a combination of Montrezl Harrell and Chinanu Onuaku .

    Sports

    The 31-year-old, who has an OBE for his services to British cycling, was training in Beausoleil, which is situated close to his home in Monaco. He didn't appear to have been hurt, but said that his bike had been "totaled". He is now in training for next month's Critérium du Dauphiné having opted out of the Giro d'Italia. Froome is expected to ride in this year's Tour de France, as he looks to secure a fourth title.
  • Runner falls 25 secs short in sub two-hour marathon bid

    Sports

    Having got so close, the obvious temptation will be for Nike - or a rival company - to try and break the two-hour mark again. "That message is really special to me". "We expect to have very cool temperatures". The effort came 63 years to the day since Roger Bannister became the first person to ever run a sub-4-minute mile.
  • Despite high mileage, James showing no signs of slowing down

    Sports

    It happened. As uninspiring as it was, Toronto advanced to the Eastern Conference Finals last season. Today, you have to beat LeBron James or the Warriors' paid-for juggernaut just to get there. Toronto Raptors All-Star point guard Kyle Lowry confirmed Monday he will opt out of the final year of his contract and test free agency this summer.

    Sports

    In a possession game you need to have the best, if possible, in a home game especially, the best circumstances. We felt Klopp should have been braver on Merseyside and shown more adventure in trying to secure an important three points, but the German felt that the pitch inhibited his players.

    The orange army lost their captain David Warner (6) early but Shikhar Dhawan (62*) played a beautifully constructed innings which will give those criticizing his selection for India's Champions Trophy squad some pause for thought. Kaul (3/24) complements Afghan spinners Nabi (1/13) and Rashid (1/22) as Hyderabad restrict Mumbai to 138/7, cruise home. Lendl Simmons lost his middle stump, swinging wildly and missing a quicker, non-turning offbreak from Nabi.

    Liverpool must win last two games, says Milner

    Sports

    That result at the Emirates Stadium meant Liverpool's fate was back in their own hands, despite the chasing teams' matches in hand, and two more wins will secure a return to the Champions League next season. 'That is disappointing. We have got to win the last two and see where that takes us'. We have shown on any one day we can beat anyone, so if we could get in the Champions League, we know we could be a match for anyone.
