This guy is tearing up the league right now and is making a case to be a Top 10 fantasy pick next season. Nikola Jokic had a triple-double with 17 points, 21 rebounds, and 12 assists. He's able to score when he's not facilitating or facilitate when the defense takes away his scoring capabilities. Past year they set multiple, including breaking the Chicago Bulls win record by winning 73 games.
A notable name was released on Monday, with the New York Giants cutting ties with Victor Cruz . Cruz originally signed on with the Giants as an undrafted free agent in 2010. More importantly to him, the Giants' 11-5 record enabled him to reach the playoffs for the first time in his eight-year career. Unfortunately, Cruz's release was not only expected but a roster move that had to be done.
Durant insisted that he's prepared for whatever reaction greets him at Chesapeake Energy Arena. After further review, LeBron James , Kyrie Irving and Kevin Love are all expected to play Thursday against the Oklahoma City Thunder . It was the Thunder (31-23), not the Cavs who had three starters score in the 20s as Westbrook's 29 was followed by Victor Oladipo's 23 and Steven Adams' 20.
But until then, we're having the first UFC women's featherweight fight for gold between fighters who aren't even true featherweights, on a card that's asking 41-year-old Anderson Silva to come in and help with pay-per-view buys. She even found reason for optimism last weekend while watching the New England Patriots complete their epic comeback in the Super Bowl. The light-heavyweight is set to take on No.
The news surprised soccer fans across the globe, since Lahm is just 33 and is signed with Bayern through 2018. "I'm going to stop playing football at the end of the season", the Bayern youth product confirmed on the club's official website, following his team's 1-0 victory over Wolfsburg in a German Cup Round-of-16 tie yesterday morning.
Sky Blues manager Pep Guardiola also commented after the Swansea game, once again benching Aguero and opting to start his new Brazilian wonderkid. The two-time Premier League victor says he would be happy to remain a part of Guardiola's side at the Etihad but placed the onus on his club to "decide if I have a place or not".
For sure now we are another team, if you compare this team to the last game against Arsenal and against Liverpool. "Without them I would not be a World Cup victor, a European Championship victor". Of course, they would have to be careful what they wish for but some sections of the Arsenal fanbase are losing patience. During my experience as a footballer I won a title with eight points more, and another time I lost in the same way.
The players simply can't come up with an answer to their recent troubles and it is seriously worrying to see them play in such a contrasting manner to how they started the season. I'm not sure, but I think it would have been more hard for Hull to cope with this. Klopp said that Liverpool "expect more from ourselves" and that they need to "show more than we did today", again accepting it as his "responsibility" to "make it possible for the players to show more".
The Merseyside giants form has been woeful since Mane's departure to Gabon, with just one win in seven league and cup encounters. The Reds will check on Mane's fitness before making any decision on his involvement in Tuesday's game against Chelsea, who are 10 points ahead of them.
Just as Hull appeared to be out of ideas, debutant Lazar Markovic fired a precision ball into the path of David Meyler inside the penalty box and his first time volleyed cross was dispatched in fine style by Niasse. Wigan have had a hard first season back in the second tier, but Warren Joyce is beginning to make progress at the club and has led the side out of the relegation zone.
On TicketIQ, a search engine that pools tickets and data from over 90 percent of the market, 2017 Pro Bowl tickets are now averaging $198. Disney World's a great place to take the kids, ride a few roller coasters and chow down on a massive turkey leg, but Orlando, Florida just doesn't measure up to Waikiki Beach.
The hope was that two of Barcelona , Atletico Madrid and Real Madrid would meet in the final, but that all went out the window when the Merengues were shocked by Celta Vigo in the quarterfinals. Barcelona defeated Real Sociedad 5-2 at the Camp Nou on January 26 to qualify for their seventh consecutive Copa del Rey semi-finals. "It was a hard tie", the Barca boss said.
Williams had three set points and clinched the set on a backhand service return. Venus, who won her 50th match at the Australian Open , has yet to drop a set. Of her 31 winners, 14 were from her powerful forehand side. Mirjana Lucic-Baronis leg hurt so bad she thought she might have to be wheeled out of Rod Laver Arena on Wednesday but the gutsy Croat hung tough to record a 6-4, 3-6, 6-4 quarterfinal victory over fifth seed Karolina Pliskova.
Royal Rumble is approaching very quickly as it scheduled to take place this Sunday, January 29. As a prefaced caveat, we do have one long shot in here. It would be a bigger shock if Joe didn't enter the match this year. When asked who deserves to be the victor of the main event of WrestleMania , he quickly quipped that he was the most deserving candidate.
Marte's representatives at J.M.G. The sudden deaths of Royals pitcher Yordano Ventura and former MLBer Andy Marte hit the baseball community hard. He was blocked by Chipper Jones at third base, though, so he was traded to the Boston Red Sox for Edgar Rentaria and cash December 8, 2015, and to the Cleveland Indians the next month, January 27, 2006, with Guillermo Mota, Kelly Shoppach, Randy Newsom and cash for Josh Bard, Coco Crisp and David Riske.
Milwaukee Bucks rookie Malcolm Brogdon was selected Wednesday to the US team for the Rising Stars Challenge on all-star weekend in New Orleans. He is the first Pelicans player to be selected for this game since Anthony Davis made an appearance in 2014, coincidentally also when it was last held in the city of New Orleans.
The Falcons will be at Rice this year. "To tell you the truth, I haven't spent a lot of time looking into those comparisons". What we are left with is the Pro Bowl, an event I have not turned on in years, and the Super Bowl which has turned into a huge party that is periodically interrupted by football.
There are concerns about the future of Pep Guardiola as the manager of Manchester City . It's a testament to this side's defensive resolve that it took City until the 49th minute for one of their member to break through. Lloris' headed clearance struck Sane, allowing the German winger to tap into an empty net, before the France goalkeeper's clumsy attempt to gather Sterling's cross handed de Bruyne the second goal.
Kerber played well in the third round but the German needs to hit her peak - which she is yet to do - in order to dispatch one of the tournament's more unsafe unseeded players. "Going out there and playing an opponent, any opponent, I go out there expecting to win", she said. Past year I came here and didn't even win a match and here I am now.
