Cormier (18-1) finds himself in a almost identical situation for Saturday's championship rematch at UFC 210 at the KeyBank Center in Buffalo, sitting as a -105 underdog (bet $105 to win $100) according to oddsmakers.

Then Brantley took Kyle Gibson (0-2) deep in the fifth inning, raising his career average in 13 at-bats against the Twins right-hander to.385 with four RBIs.

But the Warriors don't have his Bird Rights, so they would have to shed a lot of money to create the cap space to fit such a salary, and that would include the renouncing of Iguodala and Shaun Livingston.

Portland isn't going to get many better performances from McCollum and Lillard this series. Exactly what Warriors coach Steve Kerr had in mind. "I have to know my role", McGee said.
