As it was, the Cavaliers fans were a lot more raucous than she was during the filmed portion of this incident. "Yeah, they're fine. It happens every year". Of course, nothing Babers yelled, said or tweeted during the game excuses the arguments and scuffles that occurred afterwards. That probably gives you a decent idea of what she's like during a game, just a few rows back from the court.
The challenge, then, for any of us watching the Golden State Warriors comprehensively dismantling the Cleveland Cavaliers in these NBA Finals is what to do with a champion who seems to have no need for heart, grit or any of that human garbage.

Overwhelmed by Pliskova's power in the second set, Halep regained the momentum in the decider, frustrating her second-seeded opponent with her ability to soak up punishment.

Golden State improved to 14-0 this postseason to keep alive a chance of becoming the first group to go unbeaten all the way to a title.

Stephen Curry had 26 points, 13 rebounds and six assists. That's not enough against the star-studded Warriors , and the burden was too much in the end.

Sri Lanka staged a superb run chase to stun India and keep alive their Champions Trophy challenge as Kusal Mendis inspired a famous seven-wicket victory over the holders on Thursday.

Using the same tan bat that produced five hits overall the previous night, Gennett grounded into a double play his first time up against Lance Lynn , ending his homer streak.
Such is Ostapenko's all-or-nothing style that she is guaranteed to have afternoons when her game lets her down. In the first set against Khachanov on Monday, he made just a single unforced error . Both players struggled on their serve in the final set, which had six of the 16 breaks in the match. Ostapenko won the first set 7-6 (4).

Kevin Durant led Golden State with 31 points, and is now just the third player in history to score at least 25 points in his first eight NBA Finals games . "And that will hopefully continue as we hopefully go forward in our careers". He's a great dude. I feel like I'm on dating show right now. Or if Stephen Curry had gotten a max contract.
Representatives from both clubs will meet face-to-face on Thursday for a Premier League board meeting but the saga surrounding the Dutch defender will now not be brought up.

The 32-year-old Wawrinka , a late bloomer who has developed a reputation as one of tennis' best big-match players, radiated confidence after his lopsided quarterfinal win. Sometimes, you just have to do what you have to do to win the match . I think I know how to play him. "It's not like I played a great point the next point".
Now Cleveland , which previous year became the first team to recover from a 3-1 Finals deficit, faces historically long odds again. Durant is chasing his first championship and seems determined to do whatever it takes. James, to his credit became the first player since Magic Johnson to average a triple-double in recording 28.5 points, 12 rebounds and 11 assists during the Cavs two losses.
Leading 113-111 heading into the final minute, Cavaliers shooter Kyle Korver missed a triple, giving Golden State a chance to tie it up or take the lead on the next possession.

The Golden State Warriors survived the Cleveland Cavaliers' powerful Game 3 counterpunch and, in doing so, are now just an inch from the most sparkling run to an National Basketball Association title in history.

Regardless of who wins the Coupe de Mousquetaires trophy on Sunday, Thiem's thrilling run on clay this year is already one of the highlights of the tennis season.

Before Wednesday's win Djokovic had dropped just one set in five meetings with Thiem, and brushed aside the 23-year-old easily in last year's Roland Garros semi-finals. Neither Nadal nor Thiem have dropped a set in reaching the last four, with the Spaniard losing just 22 games through five matches. He has now failed to progress past the last eight in Paris for the first time since 2010.
He also finished a flawless 14-of-14 from the free-throw line in the contest tying him with Hall of Famer Magic Johnson for second-most attempts made without a miss in an NBA Finals game in league history.

I played against some great teams, but I don't think no team has had this type of firepower. Paul Pierce, who on Sunday called Durant the best player in the world, may be onto something. In fact, LeBron's production has decreased in every quarter in the three games. He's shooting just 36 percent in the fourth quarter. The Cavs missed their last eight shots and didn't score in the last 3:09 of the game.
They may have no choice. Now Cleveland , which a year ago became the first team to recover from a 3-1 Finals deficit, faces historically long odds again.
