In Baltimore, he didn't just get the sell from the team. At this stage of Maclin's career, the receiver-needy Ravens and the strong-armed Joe Flacco , a Super Bowl MVP, present a much better opportunity for Maclin to revive his career and compete for the Super Bowl. (more...)

But Gareth Southgate's side saw their lead overturned when Leigh Griffiths curled home two free-kicks in the final four minutes to delight the hosts.

The Cubs fans at Wrigley Field were howling, clapping, stomping their feet and spilling their beers. Victorino - who was in Cubs camp last spring - gave up switch-hitting for several years because a back injury made it more hard to swing from the left side, so he opted to hit only from his natural right-handed side.

LeBron James discusses return to Cleveland Cavaliers in Uninterrupted's 'The Shop'
- June 11, 2017

James was seen on replay kicking Iguodala between the legs during the closing seconds of Game 3 on Wednesday. But Curry had dipped to the flawless spot to snag the line-drive, the most important of his team-high 13 rebounds. The Cavs and Warriors go at it in Game 3 of The Finals tonight in Cleveland , with tipoff scheduled for 9 p.m. They played a tremendous game. But they're undoubtedly a great thing about being a sports fan, even if "G.O.A.T." and "best team ever" arguments have caused ... (more...)

Said James: "They made some shots and we didn't". The Cavaliers had two chances to score on the next trip but Irving's driving layup rimmed out and James misfired on a turnaround fadeaway jumper. A year ago in this same situation, the Cavs arrived home with the same 2-0 deficit and blew the doors off the Warriors early and then coasted to a 30-point win. (more...)

Bigger than all of them and all of that. But NBA superstar Lebron James , a hometown hero in Cleveland , led his team to three consecutive wins, giving the city its first sports championship in 62 years. "But I still don't regret that play". There were a number of wide-open shots the Cavs just couldn't get to fall. Cleveland needed everybody at the top of their game Wednesday night and for everything to go their way to win Game 3 , and it did - for 44 minutes and 51 seconds. (more...)

The Warriors lit it up from long range in the first quarter, making 9-of-14 3-pointers to set a new NBA Finals record for threes in a period. They did what needed to be done to improve their team and it was specifically for moments like this one. (more...)
Kevin Durant bashed for taking 'easy route' to NBA Finals
- June 08, 2017

SO focused are the Golden State Warriors on not repeating the mistakes that cost them last year's NBA Finals that they have not even discussed their shot at becoming the first team to go undefeated through the playoffs. "She told me every time I touch it, shoot it". Golden State's break-neck speed on offense has been a sight to behold. The best-of-seven series now shifts to Cleveland for two games, with Game 3 Wednesday. (more...)

After getting handled in Oakland the first two games of the series, the Cavaliers will bounce back and pull off a convincing win on their home floor. Durant topped 60 for the series in the third quarter of Game 2. How would they stake up against arguably the NBA's greatest player and his team? The Warriors won a league-best 67 games in the regular season, and are now 14-0 in the playoffs. (more...)
Monson: Don't hate these Warriors, own them Monson: Don't hate these Warriors, own them
- June 08, 2017

The Cleveland Cavaliers have been no match for the fast-paced Golden State Warriors through the first two games of the NBA Finals but insist they have no desire to slow things down when the series resumes on Wednesday. That four-turnover Game 1 from the Warriors remains shocking. He doesn't seek the spotlight - in fact, he often does his best to minimize his interactions with the media - and doesn't have the kind of eye-popping moments on a regular basis as his fellow Warriors all-stars.

Trying to make them work for everything that they get". But the exchange is endlessly entertaining, especially considering the Warriors once lost seven straight games officiated by Brothers. "They play well at home", Cavs coach Tyronn Lue said. "They're just kind of boneheaded plays that you are just like, 'Oh, man, we can be better.' Whether they're speeding us up or whether they're getting in our chest or challenging us, we need to hit back". (more...)

NBA Finals ratings highest since Jordan's last title in 1998
- June 06, 2017

While last year's Warriors team was an incredible one that set the NBA record for regular-season wins with 73, they of course came up short in the NBA Finals to the Cavs. Another hint that King James didn't let the Game 2 loss shake him, was his post-game interview on June 4. Now, a missed call on one drive to the hoop is not even close to being the worst of Cleveland's problems - losing games one and two by a combined 41 points proves that beyond a doubt. (more...)
