You know the drill: LaVar Ball says something outlandish and everyone goes nuts. LaVar made an appearance on FS1's " Undisputed " Monday morning and said the number of pairs he's sold is greater than 495. We mostly know about Lonzo from what LaVar Ball says and what we get to see on film from his days at UCLA and Chino Hills High School. At yesterday's Ballislife All-American Game at Long Beach City College, photographer Cassy Athena snapped this shot of the Ball family-LaVar, Lonzo ...

Game 5 will be played in Salt Lake City on Monday. Golden State's defense was smothering . Stephen Curry and Klay Thompson were missing more than splashing.

A win would have made their path to the playoffs easier, but the defeat has opened up the fight for the third and fourth spots.

His opponent is a veteran of 68 bouts, 64 of which he won; he's a calibre of boxer Joshua is yet to encounter. The 41-year-old will be fighting for the 69th time in the professional ranks with the goal of winning back two of the belts he lost to Tyson Fury in 2015.

Tyson Fury has been keeping his fans incredibly well updated as he continues his efforts to return to boxing. Between the end of Tyson's era at the turn of the century and the current landscape led by Joshua, the heavyweight division experienced a comparative slump.

The Jazz opened the game as the only team in the playoffs ranking in the top three in field goal percentage and 3-point percentage. Doc Rivers likely won't stick around for that as he has stated publicly he wants to keep the "Big Three" together.

It's nice for them. If United win the Europa League, Mourinho's approach will be justified, but it is a sign how far the club has fallen post-Ferguson that they are now prepared to travel to Arsenal and rest players, with everything riding on the lottery of a cup competition.

His father encouraged him a few months ago to send a few photos to a sports website and he's been a sensation ever since. My father is a football fan, so he called me and told me "don't come home tonight" because he thought that I scored that goal.

Chelsea, who play Middlesbrough on Monday, need six points to win the title and could secure it before second-placed Tottenham next play after Spurs' 1-0 loss at West Ham on Friday night. "We must be ready to fight and find the right way to take three points". Premier League leaders Chelsea know that victory over Middlesbrough tonight (8pm kick-off) will put them to within three points of the title .

The 19-year-old defender has been one of La Liga's breakout stars for the 2016-17 campaign during a loan spell with Alaves. And that should ensure a red-hot atmosphere at the Vicente Calderon for Wednesday night's Champions League semi-final second leg.

Arsenal's manager appeared to resent the question and declined the opportunity to gloat at Mourinho's expense. We have a big match on Thursday and at least I could give to many of my players a rest and to give them the conditions to be at the top level on Thursday.

Draisaitl continued to produce against Anaheim. Leon Draisaitl had a "quiet" 77 points in just his second season, but it's taken an explosion in Edmonton's series against the Ducks-away from McDavid for the last two games-for him to be widely recognized for what he is: One of the best young forwards in the game.

With two games in hand on the third place Reds, Arsenal are seven points behind and they are six adrift of City, who have played one match more . "So finally they sing, they [swing] the scarves - it's nice for them". As Sky reported, he covered more grass than any other player on the pitch, and was splendid for the North London outfit. It opens up new opportunities for me and I'm happy to have got a few games under my belt.

Led by Korver hitting 6-of-8 shots in the second quarter, including 4-of-6 from behind the three-point line, the Cavs took a 61-49 lead into halftime. Cory Joseph temporarily stopped the bleeding with a pair of free throws, but Irving went right back to work - nailing four free throws and scoring on a pair of layups.

Forget about being a force in the National League; with a 5.14 ERA, not only has Harvey been busted down to the third or fourth slot in the rotation, he's having his worst season. Two of the four seasons before this one ended with surgeries, one involving the ulnar nerve in his pitching elbow, the other for something called thoracic outlet syndrome , which is a problem involving nerves near the neck and shoulder that can produce tingling in the arm or hand.

The loss to Tottenham is Arsenal's only defeat in the last five matches since Wenger switched his team to a 3-4-3 formation. " Time for Change", but will the Arsenal hierarchy want that change if Wenger somehow salvages what's left of the campaign? The Spain worldwide started in the heart of the Manchester United midfield alongside Michael Carrick for the Premier League clash at the Emirates Stadium .

Chelsea manager Antonio Conte says that his team have overachieved this season to race ahead of Tottenham in the title race. However, the 47-year-old also envisages having a squad more attuned to his own demands after an anticipated season of transition accelerated into one of impressive achievement.

Chelsea's Cesc Fabregas, then with Barcelona, agreed. "There are few games left and we know that these three points are important for us". We were all wrong. "And if you look at him or Lionel Messi, the two are on a level above all others". Ronaldo scored a hat-trick in the last game against Bayern Munich as well.

The battle to finish third is also significant as it means automatic qualification for the Champions League - City had to go through a qualifier earlier this season. "It couldn't have gone any better". We have two more games at home - one more than Liverpool. Given that Palace travel to Manchester United on the final day of the season, Allardyce is understandably...

Combined with gate receipts estimated to be around £8m, that is all said to have earned Joshua a total take home of £15m - exceeding even his own expectations. Joshua's image, in contrast, is more of gentle giant - though the former champion feels that is likely to change. Given that it's Joshua's sport, Deeney shows off a very impressive punch falling not far behind the heavyweight champion's first go at the game.

The Cleveland Cavaliers have not lost a game so far in this year's playoffs and with LeBron James in typical post-season form, this run doesn't seem likely to end. He ended up with 37 points, but the Raptors just couldn't sustain their offense. I thought we played well for three quarters (Friday) night. "It's not looking great, but I'm not giving up on it".

The only thing that could have made it better was if Connor McDavid had guaranteed victory. And get this. It was the sixth time Anaheim has gone into a Game 5 - and this one on the fifth day of the fifth month - tied 2-2. In this case, the situation does matter. Edmonton Oilers center Connor McDavid celebrates after scoring against the Anaheim Ducks during the second period in Game 5 of a second-round NHL hockey Stanley Cup playoff series in Anaheim, Calif., Friday, May 5, 2017.

Both teams will be desperate for three points to boost their hopes of securing a Champions League soccer qualifying spot. Find out how to watch the match below. "He works every day, he loves to work, sometimes the training session finishes for the group and he keeps doing his individual work with my assistant, so the free-kick is really well taken, I think the goalkeeper has no chance because the ball was really fast".

His goal gave Washington a two-score cushion, allowing everyone who cares about the Capitals to breathe. Washington Capitals defenseman Dmitry Orlov (9), from Russian Federation, goalie Braden Holtby (70), defend as Pittsburgh Penguins right wing Phil Kessel (81) moves in during the first period of Game 5 in the second-round of the NHL hockey Stanley Cup playoffs, Saturday, May 6, 2017, in Washington .

You'll get there. WSMV might want to keep that lower-third graphic handy just in case the Preds win their next series against the Ducks or the Oilers - minus the "s", of course. This is why you play this game. "I feel like right now, we can do some damage", Rinne said. Game 6 is Sunday in Edmonton. Paul Stastny scored for St.

Chris Smalling is also back in the matchday squad after a spell on the sidelines. "Of course, we knew we were not coming in our maximum power", Mourinho said. "It was hard for me to manage the game because the players that I wanted to replace are the players that, in principle, start the game on Thursday".

The Jazz , trailing 0-3 in their second-round playoff matchup, have immediate hopes of extending their season and forcing a return trip to Oakland for a Game 5 at Oracle Arena. "For the most part, our guys just really dug in, and I can't say enough about how we competed", Snyder said. "I made a few shots there". Utah held a lead in the fourth despite starting the game by shooting 28.6 percent in the first quarter.

To be honest we played well, but when you don't win it is hard to take. "I spoke with Marouane, he's very disappointed, he feels that it's a red card because he's Marouane Fellaini". That stalemate brought an end to a three-match winning streak for the Red Devils, who are 4/11 (1.36 ) favourites with bet365 to bounce straight back by collecting maximum points in this one.

Fundamentally, the Wizards' game is defending well and turning defensive rebounds into quick transition points. Although the Wizards won the game by a large margin, they had to overcome an early deficit that could've left them down, 3-1, in the series.

A productive and no-less-confident Jones just might make Packers fans easily forget about Hyde, who was defensive coordinator Dom Capers' designated rover for much of the last four seasons. Several prominent names, however, remain for the Packers on Friday when the draft resumes at 6 p.m. In the wake of Saturday's NFL Draft developments, one safely can presume Kofi Amichia has taken his last spin around USF's campus in his green 1997 Pontiac Grand Prix.

The record fell when Yankees catcher Austin Romine became the game's 44th strikeout in the 17th inning, while facing Cubs reliever Pedro Strop.

For the second straight game in this series, the Capitals had twice as many shot attempts but were outscored. If they can't turn things around, they'll earn the dubious distinction of back-to-back second-round playoff exits despite earning the Presidents' Cup cup for the Eastern Conference's best regular-season record in each of the last two seasons.

The Denmark global has established himself at one of the finest goalkeepers in the world whilst playing for the Foxes in the Premier League, and was vital to their historic title triumph 12 months ago. They have not managed five top-flight home wins in a row since April 1984. Despite the scoreline and being on home turf, the Foxes were made to work hard for their victory.
