Chelsea striker Diego Costa has admitted that he wanted out of the Premier League last summer because he felt he was being targeted by referees and couldn't stand getting banned three matches for things that weren't even considered fouls in Spain.
Defeat to Real will leave them with just the Copa del Rey to play for. For much of the current campaign, it appeared Isco's inability to fulfil his huge potential at the Bernabeu would force him out.

Nah, Steve Kerr refuses to think about it that way. At first it looked like one of those freak non-contact injuries that typically result in an MCL or ACL sprain, but replays showed Gobert bumped knees with Luc Mbah a Moute .

Rudy Gobert missed Game 2 dealing with a hyperextended knee and bone contusion suffered on Saturday, and with no clear timetable for his return, the Jazz are in the dark as far as when they'll see him on the floor again, if at all this season.

Former Celtic Rajon Rondo contributed 11 assists and was one rebound away from a triple-double as the Bulls pulled away in the final moments of the game. Chicago was in a very early hole but quickly took control, and held that control for much of the game.

The Sharks will need to have the same presence of mind to have any chance of slowing the lightning-quick McDavid and getting past the Oilers and into second round. Because McDavid is so great, it can be tempting to just roll him out there no matter the matchup and hope to win it (and most times you will), but gift-wrapping the matchup your opponent wants, on home ice, is a mistake.

IN was limited to just 40 points in the second half after a record-breaking first half in which they drained 10 three-pointers and set a franchise record in points in a half to take a 74-49 lead into the break.

With the power play winding down, Ottawa's Kyle Turris slid a pass to Bobby Ryan for a tap in goal to give the Senators the walk-off win.

It arrived in nearly identical fashion to the first too, with another Pritchard strike this time striking the post before bouncing back against Stockdale and over the line once again.
George also finished with 15 rebounds and nine assists. For a bit of context, Cleveland is plus-12 in the first half and a remarkable plus-14 in the third, and that's why they've been able to stave off these furious comeback attempts.

Hamilton apologised to Mercedes for damaging his own chances by earning a five-second penalty for deliberately slowing Red Bull's Daniel Ricciardo as they pitted for fresh tyres under a safety auto early in the race.

Ramos-Vinolas had the edge in the shortest points and they were equally good in those longer ones and Albert came as a deserved victor after all, taking the final 6 games of the match to claim his biggest Masters 1000 result so far.
