Neymar has previously attempted to emulate Curry's famous two-ball routine, but the hoops star admits he wouldn't know what to do if he was faced with the prospect of emulating the Barca forward's skills with a football. "We had to do a little more". Two more victories would put the Warriors in the conversation for the best team ever. Now, the series shifts to Cleveland, and LeBron James and the Cavs must show up for Game 3 on Wednesday in front of their title-starved fans down 2-0 to the ...
Later on Saturday, however, Jansen claimed he had been misquoted, and that talks between the Premier League sides remained ongoing over Koeman, who has a year remaining on his present contract.

But asked if she was suffering from a groin injury as suggested by retired former Wimbledon champion Marion Bartoli, who is working this year as a courtside TV interviewer, Williams replied flatly: "I heard she said that.

"That's how he keeps his rhythm", Kerr said. Draymond Green asked. "We never played them". "That's the rule. Steph and Klay can, but nobody else". Then of course we didn't close the half very well.
Meanwhile, reports claim that Vardy could be joined in the Arsenal squad by his Leicester team-mate Mahrez, who was voted Premier League player of the year last season.

Dellavedova's harassing defence on the Warriors' Steph Curry forced the NBA MVP to connect with just five of his 23 field goals and two of 15 three-pointers. "It's not like we have any control over them", Golden State's Draymond Green said. But this is a team effort in ineffectiveness against the Warriors .
The second set was also Muguruza's as the 22-year-old came out ahead from consecutive breaks of serve in the first three games, taking a 3-1 lead and putting the pressure on the American in a dramatic ninth game lasting nearly 10 minutes as Williams saved four match points.
Hull City have joined Burnley and Middlesbrough to play in the 2016/2017 Premier League season. "I want to stop the club relying on me". Wednesday's rise has coincided with its purchase in January 2015 by Dejphon Chansiri, whose family owns major canned tuna producer Thai Union Group.

Poi sul Fair Play Finanziario: "Noi abbiamo un problema in più, a prescindere da qualsiasi proprietà verrà, noi siamo sotto il controllo della UEFA per mantenere i parametri impegnativi del Fair Play ...
He was given the vote of confidence by coach Mike Sullivan and responded in a manner uncanny for a 21-year-old. The final showdown will be on Thursday back in Pittsburgh . In order to win tonight's Game 7 , the Lightning must move past its disappointing showing in Game 6 and focus on the task at hand. Rust's breakaway goal gave Pittsburgh breathing room and Bonino added an empty-netter to finish it off.

Pogba left United for Turin in 2012, after failing to establish himself as a first team player at Old Trafford. Phil Neville is backing Jose Mourinho to be a big hit amongst Manchester United fans in the seasons to come. The Special One sees the France global as central to his rebuild and is determined to bring the 23-year-old back to Old Trafford . Anthony Martial has also reportedly welcomed the possible arrival of Zlatan Ibrahimovic to Manchester United .
At the helm Mourinho replaces Louis Van Gaal who was sacked on Monday, two days after United's FA Cup win. "I think he would be a good signing on a one-year deal", added the Republic of Ireland assistant manager. The media will have to wait until July to speak to him but Manchester United's in-house television station MUTV asked him about his new role, the future and United's fans.
Ken Starr resigned Wednesday as chancellor of Baylor University, less than a week after the school's board ousted him as president over a sex-assault scandal.

Pertanto, la tattica attendista può portare qualche risultato se si hanno ben chiare le cose ma, nella situazione attuale, il Milan non sembra trovarsi in questa posizione, con il tempismo, in termini di velocità, che potrebbe risultare assolutamente fatale.
When the dust settled, 11-year-old Nihar Janga not only proved that was a heck of a speller, he also showed that he was a huge Dez Bryant fan, as he threw up the wide receiver's trademark "X" in celebration. It's the third straight year the bee has had two winners. Previously, the youngest known champion was Wendy Guey, who won 20 years ago aged 12. First, he never expected to win.
And while it isn't entirely accurate to say James has never been favored in the Finals - he and the Miami Heat were heavy favorites against the Dallas Mavericks in 2011 - that also was the only time he entered the Finals with a team widely expected to win the series.
Former UFC middleweight champion Luke Rockhold says he underestimated Michael Bisping leading into their UFC 199 rematch. "He's an incredible fighter, and I want to thank him for bringing out the best in me". Who are the winners of the UFC 199? "I gave him an opportunity, and he made the most of it. Give me an opportunity, and it'll be the end of it".
Bisping, the No. 4 ranked contender from Manchester, England, crumpled Rockhold with a huge right hand and followed up with a brutal left after his American rival staggered to his feet. Bisping took the matchup on just over two weeks' notice as an injury replacement for Chris Weidman, leaving his job as a bad guy in a new Vin Diesel film to head home to Southern California.
The Cavaliers forward, one of the most famous athletes of his generation, referred to Ali as "the first icon" and "The Greatest of Alltime" as he saluted the three-time world heavyweight champion's impact on society.

La Celeste will be without their top goal scorer and arguably best player, Barcelona's superstar Luis Suarez , for all of the group stage. Things got even uglier tonight, as Glendale's stadium played the wrong anthem for Uruguay before their match against Mexico .

Too many miscues: The Cavs committed 17 turnovers, which cost them 25 points . "I thought our guys did a great job of locking into those guys [Curry and Thompson]".

But after squandering a 3-1 series lead by botching a golden chance to advance at home, the Thunder must win on a court where the Warriors lost only twice all season.

Murray did, though, feel he could have done better in certain areas, particularly on his serve. It took obviously Roger a long time to win this one.

The first inning was where UCLA did most of the damage and the Bruins were held to just two hits for the rest of the game as Florida State pitching dominated.

Some found it hard to choose sides between the two teams. Cutting gave an all-round performance tonight, with the ball and bat, taking two wickets in his allotted four overs. Nehra has been a crucial member of T20 sides over the past few seasons (Chennai Super Kings, India and now Hyderabad). This "read between the lines" tweet from Gambhir clearly suggests that there is still some bad blood between him and Kohli after their spat during the 2013 IPL season.
Had San Jose come away with zippo after four minutes of power-play time, things would have been bleak. But Donskoi has been a major reason for San Jose's success this season, solidifying himself as a top six forward who can control possession for his team.
It seems Jairam and Sriram are the Eli, 35, and Peyton Manning, 40, of Spelling Bees . The bee has produced Indian-American champions for nine straight years and 14 out of the last 19. The last two spellers had to get through three times as many words as in years past, but it didn't seem to work as they'd hope - this was the third consecutive year the bee ended in a tie.
Both will fight to clinch their first ever French Open title. If the world No 1 continues at his current rate it will not be long before he catches the Swiss.

Earlier in the year, at the final of the Australian Open it was Djokovic - again as the first seed - taking a straight sets victory over Murray.
I was running out of legs", he said before Contador and Porte had finished. The eight-day race, a precursor to the Tour which begins on 2 July, starts with a 4km time trial on Sunday.

Attacks on the press carry a long and distinguished lineage in the rhetoric of American political campaigns. As a mainstream political candidate, Donald Trump is under close scrutiny, as he should be. After the press conference, Jesse Ferguson, a Clinton spokesman, tweeted: "EVERYONE STOP".

I'm an average guy, this is my dream. "Nobody was taking this away from me". And after his short title reign came to an end and all of the post-fight media work was done, Rockhold had four ominous words about destiny. The victory over Rockhold was the 19th of his UFC career, joining Georges St-Pierre as the winningest fighter in the company's history.
