He struck twice more in the final 20 minutes to give the scoreline the reflection Real's dominance deserved. "It is something very special", Ronaldo told Real Madrid TV of his goalscoring tally. Ronaldo also scotched all talk he could one day make a return to the Premier League, where Manchester United would welcome him back with open arms.

Hunter Strickland and Derek Law could be closer fill-ins for the reeling Giants, who had only used Melancon once this month - on May 3 - and 11 times total in 2017. The New York Giants became the San Francisco Giants in 1957, and all that remains of the stadium they used to play in, the Polo Grounds, is an old staircase that once led to the stadium's entrance.

What could be more different than the youth and potential of the upstarting Sixers? There are going to be teams that we are going to have to go against like the Spurs perhaps, but we will see. It seemed as if Lowry gave up on the Raptors and didn't even try to get back on the court. This is definitely the most extreme of the "culture reset" scenarios, but it may also be the wisest.

In the next 5 kilometers, Kipchoge kept form but amidst some grimaces lost the pace, inch by inch, falling 10 seconds off the schedule at 40 kilometers.

Manchester United fans may not be overly excited by that sort of signing - or at least, not for those physical, defensive reasons at any rate - but if success at all costs is the aim, then it's a man like Zouma that Mourinho will want next season.

Don't press when things aren't going your way. Altherr has three-run homers in three straight games.

Durant finished with 38 points and 13 rebounds , while shooting 15-26 from the field, and 4-8 from downtown.

Atletico got the early goal it was seeking in the 12th minute through Saul Niguez.

This season he didn't play a lot at the start", Conte said . He has played as both a wing back and full back on both sides, as well as adapting brilliantly to being a right sided centre-back in Conte's three man defence. It won't be easy, but now we have three chances to exploit to become champions. "We're very close. We must be honest". The Belgian goalkeeper has not forgotten last season's woes, and says the ability Chelsea have shown to bounce back after the heavy criticism the team ...
