Cleveland lost to the Heat, 124-121, in overtime. "Our culture has got to be we don't take anyone for granted". It's been a group of castoffs and misfits who have made it work. "We dug ourselves a hole early this year, but these guys are so resilient and came out and fought hard every night", Richarson said. Going home was a "legacy move", but staying with a dynasty would have been a better one.
The Brewers wouldn't get another hit until Domingo Santana's home run in the 9th. Saturday will mark Milone's first career outing against the Cubs, who will be looking to bounce back after a tough loss Friday night. In five games, Braun is batting.250 with a homer. The Chicago Cubs can put a lot of pressure on a pitching staff, which is what made the Milwaukee Brewers' 2-1, 11-inning victory Friday night all the more remarkable.
Jack Sock of the USA reacts after winning a point in his match against Jordan Thompson of Australia at the Davis Cup World Group Quarterfinal in Brisbane , Australia , Friday, April 7, 2017. Johnson was shaky in his service game at 2-3, which the Australians won with a forehand return victor by Groth, and Sock was broken to tie the match up at two sets each when Peers produced consecutive winners.
After saying Tuesday that he didn't think Anthony would play, Knicks coach Jeff Hornacek said Wednesday night that Anthony felt strong enough after a scrimmage to suit up. We got to be more physical on the offensive end, setting screens, helping other guys get open. When asked to assess Anthony's season, Hornacek praised the forward's offense but intimated that he needed to improve defensively.
While fans and players have expressed disappointment and anger over the NHL's decision to skip the 2018 Winter Olympics, Sportsnet hockey boss Scott Moore has no problem with the move. "Of course, Canada wants its best athletes to be there and this is making it more hard for them to do so". Ovechkin said there is still time for the league to rethink its position, especially given the severe backlash of the NHLPA since Monday's announcement.
The hosts hared out from the first whistle and had their first chance after less than three minutes when Gonzalo Higuain wasted a good chance in front of Barcelona goalkeeper Marc-Andre ter Stegen. "It does not matter if I think the result is fair or not, it is what it is", he said, according to Marca . Dybala has now scored eight goals in his last games at home and has been heavily linked with a transfer to opponent Barcelona during the summer transfer window.
From what I understand, it's going to blow 25-30 miles per hour at times this week, with gusts perhaps up to 40, which I don't know will be enough to move balls on the greens or not. But Day said Monday that his mother is improving and she might even be at the course on the weekend to watch him compete for the green jacket. Willett has not been the same golfer since then, with no Top-10 finishes the rest of 2016 or so far in 2017.
Hitchcock was sacked by the St. Louis Blues on February 1 in favour of Mike Yeo with team in a playoff spot in the Western Conference.

Romero made a fine block to prevent Victor Anichebe equalising but matters went from bad to worse for Sunderland two minutes before the interval, with Larsson shown a straight red card for a lunging challenge that caught Ander Herrera on the shin.
In March, Cousins signed a one-year franchise-player tender with Washington that will net him nearly $ 24 million guaranteed next season. Cousins' side did not counter an offer made by Washington - a five-year deal worth approximately $20 million per year - before the combine because it didn't come close to what it was seeking.
After getting knocked out of the postseason by the Cubs past year, the Dodgers were hoping to spoil the team's home opener on Monday night. They've been moved from the field to under the bleachers and replaced by premium seating along the foul lines.
He joined "CBS This Morning" to talk about the putt that sent them into the playoff and what it felt like to win after so many years. He said it felt "amazing" to win the tournament on what would have been the 60th birthday of his idol Seve Ballesteros , who died in 2011.
Most of the National Basketball Association voters have probably made up their minds on who they will vote for as the MVP, but tonight does provide an opportunity for Harden to dazzle for a few minutes on the court before he lines up against Russell Westbrook in the playoffs.
At about 1:55 p.m.in Vienna in Dooly County, an EF-1 tornado with 105 mph winds traveled 8.9 miles with the most substantial damage on Franklin Road where the second floor of a home was destroyed. Survey Summary: A very brief tornado touched down just northwest of the town of Griffin, near the University of Georgia - Griffin campus. A total of four tornadoes touched down across the valley on Wednesday, April 5.
Andros Townsend put The Eagles ahead after 17 minutes and more goals came from Yohan Cabaye and new signing Luka Milivojevic in the second half. But the French midfielder insisted: "They have so much quality in the team and I really believe they can still get into the top four". "What we say in the dressing room remains in the dressing room".
It'll be the fourth logo the team has had in its 28-year history in Minnesota. "This new logo embodies the emerging culture of our franchise, a solid mark that grounds us in our heritage while adding bold new hues that light an exciting path forward".
Torres should have equalised when sent through one-on-one with Navas, but Madrid's goalkeeper rushed out to deny him, before Griezmann's late intervention earned third-placed Atletico a point. "We needed to defend more closely and with more energy, but physically we're fine". The players that have given me their lives, I obviously accompany them in the decisions that they take.
Hamilton won from pole here but Vettel had the measure of him in pace - as he had when beating him at the first round in Melbourne - but was unlucky with pit stops behind the safety vehicle and was held up when stuck behind his team-mate Kimi Raikkonen.
They were on level terms two holes later after Garcia nearly made an albatross at the par-five 15th, his eight-iron second landing inches short of the hole before brushing the pin and trickling 14 feet away, from where he made his eagle putt, the ball teetering on the edge of the cup before toppling in.
Antonio Conte is in talks with Chelsea over a new contract which will take him beyond 2019. 'It's true that it happened before when we were in positions where we had to sell our best players but that is not the case now. Still on Twitter, Rios questioned if staying in London would mean that Sanchez could be joining Chelsea . "I still have a year on my contract and I love this club".
He missed the entire 2016-17 campaign after suffering a fracture of the fifth metatarsal bone of his right foot on September 30th, just before the start of the preseason. I don't know, either. Philadelphia will have to content itself with getting a look at Simmons in full-court drills, in which it should be able to get a sense of how his talents mesh with his teammates and what complementary skills they should be looking for in the draft.
In addition, he has also proven able to get the better of Nadal - the man he defeated in an epic Australian Open final in January - on a consistent basis, having trailed 23-10 in their head-to-head prior to his recent streak of victories. While Nadal had an easy progression, Federer was forced to produce some of his finest tennis to see off the thrilling challenge of Nick Kyrgios , who was edged out by the Swiss 7-6, 6-7, 7-6 in more than three hours.
By half-time Defoe and friends were lucky not to be two down - Fellaini could not quite force Shaw's fine cross past Pickford - but arguably unfortunate to be reduced to 10 men after Larsson was given a red card for a slightly high challenge on Herrera as he followed through.
It soon boosted the lead to 106-99 with 5:27 left, at which point Cleveland forged its comeback by scoring nine unanswered points to take a 108-106 lead with 1:40 left. "That's what gives you hope". His production and playing time has declined drastically during the past two seasons, so the Cavaliers probably won't get much out of him if they sign him.
Therefore it appears an Islamic background is possible". The match, a quarterfinal first-leg, was rescheduled for Wednesday, as security was beefed up around Dortmund and in Munich where Bayern Munich will take on Real Madrid. But Koehler said investigators were still evaluating the credibility of the note. Several letters were found at the scene claiming responsibility for the attack and referring to German military efforts against the Islamic State.
Carlisle spoke with ESPN 103.3 FM about including Romo in the team photo and other activities. Romo was an honorary Mavericks team member. All of a sudden you would look in the book and he had his 25 points, eight or nine rebounds, seven or eight assists and because he had such great hands he also averaged over five steals his senior here.
He hasn't completely given up on Aljaz Bedene being granted permission to play by challenging an ITF rule, but even the Slovenia-born player, the world No. Johnson and Sock recovered from losing the first set in Brisbane to take the lead, though they needed a decider to come out on top 3-6 6-3 6-2 2-6 6-3.
The Mets, who won their third straight, finished the night with seven homers to fall one short of the franchise record. Eventually, Josh Edgin came into the game, and continued his rough start to the season, giving up two earned runs and generally being hit quite hard.
So I wouldn't be surprised. Blackhawks captain Jonathan Toews , twice a gold medal victor with Team Canada, accused the National Hockey League of using the Olympics as leverage for future collective bargaining agreement negotiations. "I don't think we should predict now what will happen until 2022", he said. But the players insist the benefit to the league and to the game is real.
Robertson averaged better than a triple-double - something else Westbrook is on the cusp of doing - during the 1961-62 season when he set the record. Westbrook can break Robertson's all-time single season record of 41 triple-doubles Wednesday in Memphis .
Rickie Fowler 1 over. Other holes at Augusta National are more famous and adorn artwork but few are more hard than the par-4 first hole. The 37-year-old Spaniard finished off his round by clenching his fist when a 7-foot par putt dropped into the cup for a 70.
As the Cavaliers have struggled mightily over the last two seasons in games played without James, the result was a painfully habitual version of the inevitable as the Wine and Gold blew an 11-point fourth quarter lead, ultimately losing in overtime.
During his media session after the Penguins' morning skate, Hainsey tried his best to make it seem like a normal day at the office - "It feels like Wednesday", he responded when asked what this day felt like - but admitted this is a day he's been looking forward to, particularly since he joined the Penguins in a February trade with Carolina.
Midfield has been an issue for Arsenal for a lot of this season, so it was nice to see last night that it functioned pretty well during the 3-0 win over West Ham . Hammers keeper Darren Randolph was unhappy with Ozil's opener as he felt Sanchez was offside and blocking his view, but referee Martin Atkinson dismissed his appeals.
Niki Lauda has said that he thinks Formula 1 is heading for a season-long battle between Lewis Hamilton and Sebastian Vettel. With pit stops taking around 22 seconds, from arriving in the pit lane to returning to racing speed, Vettel and Ferrari would have been at the front very quickly when Hamilton needed to pit urgently to change his worn intermediates.
With Chicago blowing out Orlando at home, IN winning IN Philadelphia and Milwaukee beating Charlotte at home Monday night, the Heat (40-41) needs to win Wednesday night's season finale against Washington and a loss by either the Pacers or Bulls Wednesday to make the playoffs.
That's four (away) games on the bounce conceding three in all of them. "Look, what we say in the dressing room remains in the dressing room."

Star player Wilfried Zaha was named man of the match after producing two assists. "All we can do is apologise for that performance tonight I think they just wanted it more". "I felt that we created quite risky situations but defensively we were exposed at times and offensively we couldn't finish", Wenger said. With seven points up to Manchester City in fourth place, Arsenal are in serious risk of finishing out of the Top 4 for the first time since the 1995-96 season when the team ...
Chicago Cubs' Jason Heyward (22) checks on Javier Baez after they collided trying to catch a hit off the bat of Milwaukee Brewers' Hernan Perez during the sixth inning of a baseball game Friday , April 7, 2017, in Milwaukee. Louis last week Hendricks will be taking the mound on eight full days of rest since his last outing, when he pitched five scoreless innings in an exhibition at Houston.
The Cubs actually won the World Series. "There's not as much anxiety like before", said Bosley, 60, a season ticket holder since 1982 - and a nephew of the late actor Tom Bosley. "Something that will go down in my book that I'll remember for a long, long time". The team brought out three Cubs legends to raise the new banners.
Defender Marc Bartra suffered a broken wrist during the incident but the Spain global was the only person injured in the explosions. Police have detained one suspect after three letters were found at the scene of the incident that were said to be claiming responsibility.
That's right. From the 1960-61 to 1964-65 seasons, Robertson averaged 30.3 points, 10.4 rebounds and 10.6 assists over a 384-game period. But not even a true believer like Oklahoma City Thunder general manager Sam Presti could have foreseen a year like the one Westbrook has put together this season.
MLB spokesman Pat Courtney said in a statement to The Associated Press on Wednesday that league officials are confident about reaching a positive resolution for the game and the club.

Even if it appeared to Mets fans a year ago that Bruce couldn't hit with runners in scoring position - a myth that was debunked earlier with a showing of his.323 average in such chances - Granderson produced with a literally historic level of incompetence in similar situations.
Ryan Braun prevented a bigger deficit with a diving grab of Jayson Heyward to end the second and he put Milwaukee on the board in the third, ripping a three-run homer to straight-away center off Arrieta. Marlins 7, Mets 2: Zack Wheeler lasted just four innings in his return from Tommy John surgery, giving up Derek Dietrich's go-ahead, two-run triple and Christian Yelich's two-run homer in the Mets' loss to Miami.
At even par are three past champions in Phil Mickelson, Adam Scott and Jordan Spieth, all capable of grabbing this event by the throat over the weekend. The ball stayed up and avoided a watery resting place, though, and Garcia got it up and down for one of his four birdies on the day. He almost holed a wedge from the fairway on the 15th for another birdie and wound up with a 68.
Police spokesman Anthony Guglielmi said in a tweet Wednesday that Joshua Smith was charged in the shooting death earlier this week of Associate Cook County Circuit Judge Raymond Myles.
