The lead changed hands again when Day recovered from finding the trees off the 15th tee to hole out from the bunker for an unlikely birdie, only for the Australian to need three putts from the fringe at the par-five next.

Arsenal will compete in the Europa League next season after failing to secure a Champions League qualifying position for the first time in almost two decades. "I've played until the end of my contract, which is today basically", Wenger said.

Bring on Origin 2 at ANZ Stadium, and expect Johnathan Thurston and Billy Slater to present the home side with more pressure and more talent. Tedesco was also crucial in preventing a couple of Queensland chances right at the death thanks to a pair of heroic tackles near the line, and although the Maroons challenged, it proved to be all huff and very little puff.

Golden State won the first series in 2014-2015 while the Cavs became the first team ever to comeback from a 3-1 deficit to win the 2015-2016 championship. The longer the series goes, the more secure this prop will be. Why? He's going to get other players involved in the scoring by passing the ball off. This one looks easy to me.

Fifteen seconds after that, Malkin went top-shelf for a goal that chased Rinne out of the game for Juuse Saros. The Predators dug themselves in a deep hole Wednesday, surrendering two third period goals in 15 seconds.

Rinne allowed four goals on 11 shots in Game One and has allowed 20 goals over his past six games after conceding just 16 over his first 11 playoff games.

Pittsburgh didn't manage a shot on net in the second period, the first time it's happened in a playoff game in franchise history - and the first such period by any team in a Final game since the National Hockey League began tracking shots on goal in 1958.

Several batsmen tried to hit their way out of trouble against Kagiso Rabada and Wayne Parnell despite accurate bowling from the new-ball duo made more risky by cloudy skies and a green-tinged pitch. England have won eight of their last nine ODI matches; that defeat coming in a dead rubber against South Africa , their most recent outing. "They made us play a hell of a lot and managed to get the ball moving around".

Chairman Dean Hoyle admitted he took a punt on the recommendation of an agent when hiring Wagner and it has turned out to be an inspired one.

Overtime periods will be shortened to 10 minutes except for playoff games and more players will be allowed to remain on the roster during preseason , Fox Sports reported .

James is looking for his fourth National Basketball Association championship. And even though Cleveland has rolled through the playoffs, going 12-1, they've allowed opponents over 100 points in all but three of those games. That still may not be the most pleasant option - Love is an important offensive weapon for the team, and it doesn't pay him more than $20 million a year to sit on the bench.

I'm about a great Finals, and I think it's going to be one of the best ever. "It will be a massive upset if they're not there each and every year". Golden State has swept their first three playoff opponents and has cruised to a win in nearly every game.

McMonagle, one of Cosby's defense lawyers, said he was "very satisfied" with the chosen jury.

This is about the Cavaliers , Warriors and the title that lies between them, each with a claim to it. It's the rubber match. The argument from CavsTwitter upon hearing those numbers will likely revolve around how Cleveland has clamped down on Golden State in each of the past two Finals, and that take is accurate.

In the past two years, they have posted five of their six highest one-day scores including the world record total of 444 against Pakistan . "But on any given day we can beat any team in the world".

But this also may be the best all-around version of James , who is averaging 32.5 points on almost 57 percent shooting, and adding 8.0 rebounds and 7.0 assists per game. This is true no matter who wins the Finals. "It's something that, being a basketball fan, and having come from a basketball family and having it in my blood, it's - I grew up watching the Finals, and wanted to be part of the Finals".

by | June 01, 2017 | 13:00

That gave Pittsburgh as many shots as it had in Game 1. Fifty teams have taken a 2-0 lead since the final went to a best-of-seven format in 1939. That's because it would either go to Jake Guentzel, which would make him the only non-goaltender rookie to win the award, or it would be shared by Matt Murray and Marc-Andre Fleury.
