Even though she won on Sunday, she kept adding to that total. She broke down in tears during her post-match speech to the crowd, which regaled her with chants of her nickname, "Kiki!" 24-year-old Mladenovic was clearly excited following her win over the reigning champion and thanked the crowd at Roland Garros for cheering her on to glory.

    Not that anyone expected any different. The first two play types are among the most frequently run by the Cavaliers during this playoff run, showing that Thompson could still be a major part of the Warriors' title chase even if he remains cold for another game or two.

    LeBron James has 12 points and so does Kyrie Irving for the Cavs. When Irving isolates his defender, James can conserve energy. "It doesn't really seem like he has a weakness, going either way or pulling up", Thompson said. But the Cavaliers , and Irving, will live with those misses, because they have seen him make plays so many times in similar situations. He scored 38 points in the Game 3 loss before his big Game 4 performance.

    And all of this was the subtext of Friday night's one-man postgame performance. Hopefully things are a bit more under control for Game 5. He needs to give the Warriors the versatile All-Star who is their defensive anchor. "I don't pay much attention to anybody in Cleveland , honestly", Green said after his team took a beating in Game 4 . "Let me get my money's worth if I'm going to get some techs".

    The Cavaliers star was a bit more reserved when he came to picking present day players. "Found out some more information on the 3-on-3 event in the Olympics", Patrick said on his radio show . I'm trying to think of a reason why LeBron would even do it and I have nothing. When you go to seven straight NBA Finals (and counting) with two different teams, you've more than earned your long offseason.

    As has become tradition with the USA and World Cup qualifiers as of late, they can't afford to slip up. El Tri will undoubtedly be favored in the anticipated clash since it's sitting pretty atop the table and topped the Stars and Stripes 2-1 last time out in November, but Osorio will have to prepare his squad for a Red, White and Blue team that's building confidence after Christian Pulisic notched a brace Thursday night against Trinidad and Tobago.

    Of course, calling the people that inspire you to get out of bed in the morning tiresome isn't usually a good way to keep them happy. They came out there and took it to us. "We know that champions don't die", Durant said . With the Oracle crowd going insane tonight, the home team's running game will return and that is the key in beating Cleveland's older and slower defense.

    Ibrahimovic will be highly sought after following an impressive season at Old Trafford , which was cut short by injury after he bagged 17 goals in 28 Premier League appearances for the Red Devils. He will continue his rehabilitation from injury at the club. United have already lined up a replacement for Ibrahimovic and are all set to sign Real Madrid's Spanish striker Alvaro Morata in the coming days.

    For now, we can only dream of what a team comprised of Michael, Magic and LeBron would be able to do on a basketball court. I haven't seen the full layout of how they plan on executing it. It's uncertain whether National Basketball Association players are even eligible to play in the event. I'm not quite sure. But a trio of MJ, Magic and LeBron in a 3-on-3 tournament would be, let's just say, formidable.

She three-putted from 35 feet on the 18th and missed a four-footer that could have given her the victory. "All the wins I've ever had when I was a kid I was always coming from behind".
