Warriors have LeBron, Cavs on ropes after going up 3-0


James and Irving also supplied a vast majority of the Cavaliers' first-half offense, accounting for 44 of the team's 61 points. Irving took a dumb step-back 3-pointer - after the Cavs allowed 19 seconds to pass off the clock - with 26 seconds left. Read More »

Ball's stock still high with Lakers despite dad's distractions


In the words of former fifth overall pick Kevin Garnett, anything is possible. Lonzo was indeed badly outplayed by De'Aaron when UCLA and Kentucky met in the Sweet Sixteen of this year's NCAA Tournament. "I think it definitely doesn't help", Ball said of his father's notoriety. Trading the No. 1 pick is always risky, but the Celtics could end up with a great player in Josh Jackson if everything goes well, and more importantly the one player Celtics GM Danny Ainge wants more than any ...

Warren Gatland: 'British and Irish Lions continually improving'


Elliot Daly has looked a class act on this tour and it will be a hard decision to choose between the Wasps player and Anthony Watson for that right wing berth on this weekend's Test team. Instead he revealed the referees had actually raised the matter first. As I said last week, scrumming is a coachable thing. But is this not what we wanted? Sometimes decisions go against you.

US OPEN: Back-9 bogeys halt Harman


There is also a financial windfall for Elliott, who pockets a percentage of Koepka's prize money of £1.6m.

Chauncey Billups Could End Up In Cavaliers' Front Office


Inside basketball circles, he's well-liked, highly respected and would be a splashy hire for Gilbert, who has taken some criticism for his separation from Griffin , who helped build the Cavs and guided them to three straight Finals. The two have battled back to James' days in Miami, and he has been inspired by George's comeback from a horrific leg injury in 2014 while playing for the US national team. Read More »

Mexico urge fans to stop homophobic chant

It has been a dream last 12 months on the field for the former Manchester United man, who was a European champion at club and global level in 2016. "We don't have words to describe what he represents for our country". "I tell you that tomorrow we have a very important game.

Swansea hope to sign teenage striker Tammy Abraham on loan


Now at the under-21 European Championships in Poland with England, Abraham is yet to find the back of the net for the Three Lions but helped guide his side to a 2-1 victory over Slovakia for their first three points of the group stage.
