The story as reported Monday by Chris Haynes of ESPN.com boils down to this: During the National Basketball Association lockout in 2011, Durant joined James in Akron, Ohio, to work out together as both stars looked to keep their skills sharp and stay in shape.
Tamim, who hit a century in Bangladesh's opening match against England , ended up with more than half his side's runs as he scored 95 from 114 balls, with six fours and three sixes.

The 14-time major victor has dropped just 20 games in four matches as he strives to become the first man to win 10 titles at a single Grand Slam . Carreno Busta has never played in the last eight of a Grand Slam event, and was forced to recover from trailing 1-0 and 2-1 to overcome Milos Raonic over five sets in the quarter-finals.
The fact the league is keeping overtime periods in the postseason at 15 minutes doesn't really matter, considering the postseason calls for games to reach a 2nd overtime and beyond until one team wins and one team loses. The league also decided upon changing the cut-down day rules Tuesday. This would allow both players to return from injured reserve to practice after six weeks, and be activated after eight weeks.
Goalkeeper Pekka Rinne returned to form for the Preds as well. Of course, based on the Nashville Predators' 4-1 win against the Penguins in Game 4 of the Stanley Cup Final Monday in Nashville, there was only one goalie now worthy of the award.
Kyrie Irving scored 24 points in the opener and Love had a big day in Game 2, but starters Tristan Thompson and J.R. Smith have been almost invisible and the bench has offered little help. Iguodala needed 24 shots to score as many points over that time frame, and Green's Game 7 eruption coincided with the struggles of Curry and Thompson.
Oxlade-Chamberlain joined Arsenal during the 2011 summer transfer window but has struggled to make an impact at the Emirates. But according to reports, boss Arsene Wenger is determined to tie him down to a new contract in the first few weeks of the off-season, with the flier's deal set to expire in just over 12 months' time .
The song's title and theme are unknown, as are its whereabouts. However, just six years ago, the two came together to record a hip-hop record that had seemingly gone completely under the radar, until a snippet of it was released on Monday. Apparently there was some talk about the track being submitted for inclusion in the film " Thunderstruck ", which starred Durant. At the time, LeBron was a 26-year-old star for the Miami Heat and Durant a 23-year-old budding star for the Thunder.
Pittsburgh Penguins center Sidney Crosby practices Sunday, June 4, 2017 , in Nashville, Tenn. Gaudreau is also just the third rookie to score game-winning goals in consecutive games in the Stanley Cup Final since the National Hockey League took over sole possession of the trophy in 1926-27.
It was his first career postseason triple-double and the best Finals game of his career. It's sort of hard to crystallize a Warriors attack that could only be described as "relentless"-in both games so far, the Cavs have survived for a half, then understandably given way under a barrage that just doesn't let up, and comes from so many different angles".
Nishikori will stride into this quarter-final with confidence nonetheless. The third-seeded Romanian took care of that problem on Monday at the French Open , routing Suarez Navarro 6-1, 6-1 to advance to the quarterfinals at Roland Garros .
Of course, Real's win was about much more than the contribution of their Portugal forward. We'll enjoy this moment now. After Mario Mandzukic scored an incredible first-half equaliser with an audacious overhead kick, Real didn't let the Italians get away from them.
Gaudreau, who doesn't even have his own locker stall in the Nashville locker room - but rather a chair and a small desk due to space constraints - leads the Preds in goals during the Final, embracing the moment night after night when it matters most.

Pittsburgh forward Carl Hagelin played for the first time with center Nick Bonino out after taking a Subban slap shot off his left foot in Game 2 that left him on crutches and in a walking boot.

That included Chris Kunitz , Patric Hornqvist and Matt Cullen each getting a 10-minute misconduct all in the final five minutes of the loss. The Penguins lead the series, two games to one.

"I'm happy here, I signed a long-term deal last summer. It has been a spectacular year thanks to you and in the end we won the double". "My family is happy and I am happy so, yeah, we will continue what we are doing".
At times they were literally skating circles around the Senators. A third period strike from Mike Hoffman completed a 2-1 win for the Senators, who rallied after falling behind to a Evgeni Malkin goal in the second period. On three occasions Sunday they cycled the puck so effectively that the Penguins were able to make line changes while maintaining possession. They simply could not have been worse.
Wenger's future has been the subject of fierce debate for most of the season and he admitted after the FA Cup final success against Chelsea at Wembley that the uncertainty had had an impact on the season. "I've got you". You're like: "Yeah, I'd love to" - and off he takes you". The Gunners began brightly and the talismanic Alexis Sanchez rammed in his 30 goal of the season in controversial circumstances in the fourth minute, with the linesman initially ruling it out for offside.
After the Malkin goal, Predators coach Peter Laviolette turned to backup Juuse Saros , another awful performance for Rinne against the Penguins in the books; in four career starts in Pittsburgh before Wednesday, Rinne was 0-4 with a 4.71 goals-against average and an.831 save percentage.

Performing her hits Roar and Part of Me at the benefit concert, Perry also spoke emotionally to the crowd.
An injury may have ended Ryan Johansen 's postseason run, but the Predators center received an unexpected honor on Monday, as he was named Nashville's honorary mayor for the day. That you expect to lose? Defenseman Mattias Ekholm said the challenge of defending Crosby (seven goals, 23 postseason points) and Malkin (nine goals and a playoff-leading 26 points) is hard but it's nothing new for the Predators, who faced Chicago's Jonathan Toews and Patrick Kane in the first round, ...
It's different for them. "We are very hopeful of playing well in this tournament and we want to win it". The ICC Champions Trophy will be commencing from June 1 in England and Wales with the warm-up matches beginning from today.

I obviously came back way too early from my surgery and I suffered a bit and obviously we were considering having more at one point.
The Predators are 8-1 at home in the playoffs and Bridgestone Arena has been the loudest, wildest facility by far. Game Four is on Monday in Nashville .

Asked the difference between this year and last year, James simply said, "K.D." and added, "They are a different team". More help from his teammates would go a long way, too.

Kyrie Irving scored 24 points in the opener and Love had a big day in Game 2, but starters Tristan Thompson and J.R.
The 26-year-old hit 16 Premier League goals as Chelsea claimed the title in Antonio Conte's first season in charge, although they were beaten 2-1 by Arsenal in the FA Cup final.

Asked if he would like to see an offer, the player, who has three years left on his contract at Stamford Bridge, told the Het Laatste Nieuws newspaper: "Of course, that's all". "I started to play a bit more centrally, like a Number 10", the Belgian said of the conversion to a 3-4-3 formation.

Durant and Curry then knocked down 3-pointers 23 seconds apart to balloon the lead to 121-99 and render most of the final 6:18 as garbage time. And through two games, that pitch has borne out. He then pump faked LeBron James into leaving his feet and headed to the rim, eventually finishing with a right-handed layup over James and Kevin Love .
As the caution waived, green-flag pit stops were cycling through and Jimmie Johnson was the leader, handing the lead over to him for the first time of the race.

Kevin Love added 15 points and Kyrie Irving had 10. They equaled their entire Game 1 assist total in the first half of Game 2 and trailed, 67-64, at halftime. Don't get that sentence twisted now. Attles was the coach of the Warriors' first championship on the West Coast in 1975. Durant was dominant once again after a great performance in the first game of the series .
Kevin Love was no slouch, piling up a 27-point game after he had a 21-rebound showing in Game 1. When I say ineffective, it's not just lack of points, but it's lack of rebounds , hustle plays, etc. No unlikely heroes emerged for the Cavs, and four candidates - J.R. Smith, Channing Frye, Deron Williams and Iman Shumpert - combined to go 2 for 18 from the field in Game 2.
Crosby shot back, denying the accusations from Subban. In obvious pain, Subban left the ice, but he returned. The Penguins went 0-3 with the man advantage in losing Game 3 in Nashville , 5-1.
