Alonso's home fans had barely settled in their seats for practice at the Spanish Grand Prix before his car's Honda engine blew in a mess of smoke and oil. "The points is the main target", he said.

At the half in Game 2, the Washington Wizards lead Boston, but that's been a trend. John Wall scored 24 points for the Wizards , who took command with a 22-0 run in the first quarter.

From a handicapping perspective, I see too many factors in the Spurs favor despite Leonard being out for Game 2 . Pop said Pachulia took a "two-step, lead-with-your-foot closeout" that was meant to injure Leonard. "Have you ever heard of manslaughter?" "So I literally start to go and I'm going to get in the far left lane to go through where we all go through, and a cop out of nowhere pulls in front of me and goes, 'Hey you, stop!.

With her ranking at No. 211, Sharapova does not qualify directly for the top tournaments. Tournament organizers were criticized for giving a wild card to Sharapova instead of former French Open champion Francesca Schiavone, an Italian.

It was only centre-back Nacho's second league goal of the season, but it's nearly certainly his most important.

If City can score one or two goals quite early that would help settle any nerves I guess, but either way I fancy Pep Guardiola's men strongly to win.

We doubt this Spurs fan will miss the old White Hart Lane as much as some.

The latest launch appeared to fulfil both criteria, Haley said, "so I believe that China will stay true to that and that we'll come together on how we're going to do that".

That was the difference on a night when Dodgers manager Dave Roberts tried his hand at making hash from the ingredients on hand.
