Oracle opened Saturday's racing with a 2:11 rout of Groupama Team France . That's not a good sign for a country that's tried for 166 years to win back the silver trophy it lost to the schooner America in 1851. Tacking and jibing incredibly smoothly, the Kiwis chased down their rivals before overhauling them heading for gate 5. Two-time defending champion Oracle Team USA won't go undefeated in this America's Cup regatta and Groupama Team France won't go winless.

It was a disgraceful output for the team given their twelve shot total - a complete lack of discipline to shoot without scoring. "We seemed to get some life from (the overturned goal)".

Give me Murray in straight sets. The Brit found his range as the match progressed, however, dropping only two games as he reeled off sets three and four in quick succession.

There's a lot of mutual respect between Cleveland Cavaliers forward LeBron James and Boston Celtics guard Isaiah Thomas. In Game 3, Kyrie Irving's heroics were all for naught.

Jones said it was a great race for the Dale Coyne Racing Team and a great month while sneaking a glance at the scoring monitor, nearly like the third-place finish didn't happen.

As much as you want to, it's not over. "You can tell he puts in a lot of work in his game". Going back to Boston , the Celtics must find a way to maintain a lead. "I'll be like, "F--.' They're running all kinds of s--, man". One would think that playing on the road in a series-clinching situation would make it even tougher on the Cavs , but they've proven that to be no obstacle in the past.

That is today, basically. So, for me, the contract does not have a special meaning. "I've got options but nothing sorted or in stone or anything like that".

It will be their third National Basketball Association title showdown in three straight years.

They went 1-0 up in the series and the margin of victory of 72 runs was emphatic enough to give them confidence that they can sew the series up down in Southampton.

By the way, the former MVP is in as good a place as he's been heading into these Finals. After all, he has slayed behemoths before.
