Boston's final three-pointer came when guard Avery Bradley rimmed in a shot from the left wing with 0.1 seconds remaining. The Cavs blew a 21-point third-quarter lead, and James , who typically rights the ship, helped lead it straight to the bottom of the ocean. Read More »

James breaks Jordan record as Cavs reach National Basketball Association finals

The so-called " luxury tax " can be exceeded, but most teams are leery about doing it. "That's all I can give you right now". It's too stressful and I'm not stressed right now. "I can't lie", Durant said, when comparing the 2012 Finals trip to this one. "Just kind of take it in stride". "I hope it's four". "We go out and just try to be as great as we can be every night".

Sportsmail revealed earlier this month that United made Ibrahimovic the highest-paid player in Premier League history on £367,640 when he joined as a free agent from Paris Saint-Germain last summer.

Now, he's breaking a record that's been around for almost half a century. Zinedine Zidane was able to make five changes to the team that beat Sevilla bringing in Marcelo, Luka Modric, Casemiro, Isco and Karim Benzema . It was deadly finishing of the highest quality. Zidane hailed the Portuguese forward, who has scored 13 goals in his past eight games. Nearly as an afterthought, Ronaldo's double on the night took him to 368 goals in league competition for Manchester United and ... Read More »

Wayne Rooney says his future is "more or less" decided

perth_map

But ultimately, when considered, it is a very easy decision to make for any worldwide manager; if you don't play well, or play at all for your club, then you don't deserve to play for your country. The Manchester United forward was not included in the 25-man party to face Scotland and France next month when it was announced on Thursday. I don't know about you but I find it hard to imagine Wayne Rooney being the type to fancy playing overseas and learning a language/adapting to a ... Read More »

Ricciardo set for Monaco qualifying battle

He was fastest in the morning session on a track that was still green, undergoing the first running of the week but he remained only two-tenths quicker than Vettel over the session with the quick runs set on the ultrasoft tyres. Vettel too was perplexed as to the reasons behind Merecedes' drop in form. "I'm sure the neck is going to be a bit sore after Thursday, even around Monaco ". Read More »

Chelsea cancel Premier League title bus tour after Manchester terror attack

Wenger again refused to confirm whether he will still be Arsenal's manager next season and was keen to emphasise this weekend's Wembley showdown with Chelsea will not affect his future. Winning the double would add gloss to a fine maiden campaign for the Italian, but he'll have to get past an FA Cup master first. While he may have recovered, there remain significant concerns over his match fitness against the energetic Premier League champions, who scored 85 times in the process ... Read More »

#FACupFinal is about Arsenal not me, says Wenger

The Frenchman has constantly refused to give a definitive answer on whether his current contract, which expires at the end of the season, is to be renewed. They also suffered a humiliating 10-2 aggregate defeat against Bayern Munich in the Champions League . If both teams had brought their A game then Chelsea would still have won, but with Laurent Koscielny and Gabriel out, Shkodran Mustafi potentially out and Per Mertesacker playing at the back I would be shocked if Arsenal got ...

Ajax coach rues 'boring Europa League final'

Mourinho and United took the winning option, overpowering a talented by lightweight Ajax to give their season and thousands of celebrating fans a warmer glow. Ajax coach Peter Bosz called the Stockholm showdown "boring" as his young impressionable side were nullified by a far more physical and experienced United side, who won the game with a goal in each half from Paul Pogba and Henrikh Mkhitaryan .

Andy Murray struggles with illness on French Open 2017 eve

There is a good chance that the post-French Open rankings will see Djokovic drop down to the World No. 3 position, maybe even the World No. 4. This year's Roland Garros will be the last for Nadal's coach, his uncle Toni. It's true that he's the defending champion, but he has not been the same player in the past year that he was heading into the 2016 event. "If you lose a couple of matches, you get frustrated as well". Read More »

We deserve to be in the final: Rohit Sharma

When the season began, Karn Sharma was not the first-choice in the Mumbai Indians' line-up. Chawla also clean bowled Ambati Rayudu (6) before Rohit and Pandya put the chase firmly on track with a 54-run fourth wicket stand. Sharma then dismissed Gautam Gambhir and Colin de Grandhomme off successive deliveries an over later. Ishan Jaggi and Suryakumar Yadav applied well and gave the innings some respectability with a 56-run partnership. Read More »

Nashville Puts Anaheim on the Brink

Rickard Rickell and Patrick Eaves did not make the trip to Nashville and will miss game six. The Ducks won Game 4 against Nashville in overtime and controlled long stretches of play in Game 5, but their depleted forwards repeatedly struggled to finish strong sequences against Rinne, who has beaten Anaheim in two previous playoff series .

Man United beat Ajax to win Europa League in emotional night

On another day, Paul Pogba's shot would have deflected away from goal instead of wrong-footing the keeper and nestling into the net and Henrikh Mkhitaryan would not have been on hand to divert Chris Smalling's downward header. "Again, big games that a club like United should always play". "Many other staff. The work they did to organise everything for us, for our families, to come to this important match with a short period of time , the way people dedicate themselves to that, to try to ... Read More »

The Manchester Evening News adds that United could also target Griezmann's team-mate Jan Oblak , if goalkeeper David de Gea leaves for Real Madrid this summer. He posted: "We have other goals for next season". "With Atletico, we got to finals and semi-finals of the Champions League and were close but we just lacked a little something and the club will look at what must be done". Read More »

Michael Jordan who? LeBron is NBA's new all-time playoff scoring leader

If this season felt as though the Cavs and Warriors were circling one another all year, it's because they were. "I'm just proud of the work we've put in from the beginning of the season", Durant said following the sweep of the Spurs. Stephen Curry has a stake in this. Just six other players have made it to at least that many in a row, and they all were part of the Celtics' dynasty, which spanned the 1950s into the 1960s. Read More »

He was told by the team to head home to his ranch in Kentucky this week and skip the team's voluntary practices to reduce the stress on a right eye that has had eight surgeries. On Friday morning, Zimmer described it as "kind of a forced situation". "The coaches have done a great job relaying the message from one practice to another about things I think we have to get better at, things we have to do better in all three phases". Read More »

'King' James hits milestone as Cavs seal Warriors finals rematch

LeBron even broke the playoff record for points with 5,989, and he's only going to add to that when they play the Golden State Warriors in the league championship. "I've had ups, I've had downs, I've had opportunities, I've had mistakes", said Brown. The 32-year-old James, who is seeking a fourth National Basketball Association title, took 212 postseason games to surpass Jordan, a six-time champion who played 179 playoff games. Read More »

Ajax fans vandalised Stockholm stadium after Manchester United Europa League defeat

A little more than 48 hours after the attack, substitute Wayne Rooney took over the captain's arm band and raised the Europa League trophy at the Friends Arena, the stadium where American Grande began her world tour back on May 8. "They will learn a lot from it and we will become stronger, and if we can keep this squad together we will be stronger next season, for sure". "Maybe. Read More »

The Spaniard, written off as a contender in Paris after a quarter-final loss to Novak Djokovic in 2015 and an injury-enforced pull-out before the third round a year ago, arrives at Roland Garros as the new favourite to add the 2017 title to victories in 2005, 2006, 2007, 2008, 2010, 2011, 2012, 2013 and 2014.
