Isaiah Thomas's sister died in a auto accident, but he managed to play and scored 33 points, shooting 55% from the field. But we executed extremely well. It was part of a stretch in which he scored seven straight points. If this were a live-action Disney sports flick, Thomas' Celtics teammates would have rallied behind him in the face of tragedy to spur the win, but real life isn't a Disney film.
Sticking with bad backs, Dustin Johnson bruised his falling down stairs at his Augusta rental home less than 24 hours before his scheduled first-round tee time, which he never made. He finished with a 75 and is five shots back at one under. If you're wondering, no one has ever won the Masters with a triple bogey on his scorecard.
An overtime goal by 22-year-old rookie Jake Guentzel - set up by some deft puck-handling behind the net by Sidney Crosby - was the latest dagger. We've got to make sure we approach tomorrow's game just like we approached the first three. "I don't know what the call is there", Dubinsky told the Columbus Dispatch. If there is a sweep though, it will be a shame for the game of hockey, although most people reading this care much more about what the team in black and gold is able to produce for ...
Bayern Munich coach Carlo Ancelotti has warned his players they can not afford to let Cristiano Ronaldo out of sight when they take on Real Madrid at the Santiago Bernabeu on Tuesday. The French manager expects Bale to be recovered for El Clásico but he has confirmed that the Welshman won't play against Bayern Munich: "Gareth has worked a lot to go back with the team after his injury".
Nothing irritated him more than the fifth hole. SHOT OF THE DAY: Jason Day almost making an ace at the sixth is up there, but this unbelievable strike from the pine straw at the par-5 13th from Spieth takes it all. A double bogey at the 12 busted his momentum. He almost holed a wedge from the fairway on the 15th for another birdie and wound up with a 68. There is a similar "dam the torpedoes" quality to Spieth's play and the 23-year-old Texan seems to have the same unique bond with ...
Kawann Short to a five-year contract Monday. Eleven came in 2015 when he helped lead the Panthers to the Super Bowl while also earning his first Pro Bowl selection.

The 6-3 6-4 win over old rival Nadal was his 19th from 20 matches this season, a "dream" like run of form. The Swiss star missed a large part of previous year due to knee surgery and said that was part of the decision to stay off clay. It is true that when somebody is coming with that dynamic like him that he's winning a lot, all the things are going your way. "I will probably stay on hard courts.
A wet, cold Manchester afternoon was the setting for United to end a run of 12 games without victory against Chelsea , stretching back to a 3-2 away win in October 2012. Old Trafford erupted at a seventh-minute opener that Chelsea would have every right to feel aggrieved about, given Nemanja Matic saw a pass handled by Herrera in the build-up.
West Ham winger Michail Antonio has been ruled out for the rest of the English Premier League season with a significant injury. However, they are undefeated in seven of the last nine home fixtures (W3, D4). There were certainly question marks about whether the West Ham keeper had been impeded, but the referee gave the goal. Sunderland manager David Moyes lately declared the team's present scenario is "damaging" him with the Black Cats having spent the whole season in the relegation ...
It's Cup or bust for the Caps this year, expectations nearly entirely at odds with the young Leafs, who are simply trying to soak up playoff experience for future Cup runs.

West Ham United, who are now 12th in the table, nine points above the relegation zone, will look to end a three-game losing streak when they travel to 19th-placed Hull City on Saturday.

James appeared to be upset about defensive coverages on Paul George, who scored 16 consecutive Pacers points at one point in overtime and finished with 43 points.

Indeed, Alonso says he was "amazed" at the deficit in speed against his rivals down the straight, saying he would begin the home stretch 400m ahead of a auto, only to find it alongside in the braking zone at Turn 1. "A few more races but it should be middle of the season realistically", added Brown. WIth the cars out on the grid before the warm-up lap, Stoffel Vandoorne, Fernando Alonso's teammate, was forced to call for assistance when a water leak flooded the cockpit.

Julio Teheran opened SunTrust Park with a victory after allowing two runs over six innings Friday against the Padres. Miami's Giancarlo Stanton hit a pair of two-run homers, his first of the year. We will have live coverage of traffic leading up to the game on Channel 2 Action News at 4, 5 and 6 p.m. on Friday.

Ferrari's Sebastian Vettel was third but the Red Bull of Daniel Ricciardo split the German from his team-mate, taking fourth in front of Kimi Raikkonen. "It was a great battle, like qualifying should be". He said: "Overall I am happy with qualifying third and with how the auto felt". The gap between Bottas and Hamilton is tiny - just 0.023s - but the Mercedes pair are almost half a second quicker then Vettel's Ferrari.
Mary's on Saturday. For some time here, it seemed that City's own lack of cutting edge would cost them. It was then that Sane, whose mother was an Olympic sprinter, tore through on goal and tried to zip around Fraser Forster . Look for an exciting, attack-heavy game that will showcase both team's strengths. City were beginning to run away with things at that point and they'd score another with 10 minutes remaining, Sergio Aguero getting in on the act.
Then I talk about some issues during the week. "It doesn't worry me, I don't read about it, I'm not making phone calls or whatever". "My body is my work tool now, so I'm trying to work on everything that is good for my body and who's to say I won't carry on playing for another 10 or 12 years?" "Even in that good period, when you or whoever were talking about a new contract, I said we were not finished and there were a lot of games to play".
Hamilton now sits tied with Ferrari's Sebastian Vettel at the top of the drivers' championship, but said he believes Bottas' threat makes the title race a three-way fight at a minimum.

Also, Montreal has been a not so positive place for goalie Lundqvist despite him coming away with 31 saves in game one. In the third, Lundqvist somehow got the toe of his skate on a deflected shot by Montreal's Artturi Lehkonen as Shaw crashed into the net.
I always like to repeat to him that it's very important to have the right concentration. Antonio Conte has revealed he saw it as a "great challenge" to both David Luiz and himself as a manager to rectify the amount of negative coverage the Chelsea defender's August signing received, as he urged the player to become one of the best defenders in the world.
Nearly immediately after the restart, Ronaldo volleyed home Daniel Carvajal's cross on 47 minutes to level the score on the night and bring his tally up to 99. "I am happy with the win, we reacted well to make a comeback", Ronaldo said on the Madrid website. While Martinez's dismissal opened the contest up, it can not mask the reality that Bayern are past their prime and the veterans of the 2013 Champions League victory ultimately found themselves outthought, outplayed and outran.
