Bradley Beal had 27 points - the most for Washington that night. In game six, Boston took a 13 point lead into halftime before dispatching Chicago by a score of 51-42 in the second half. So why should he come out when he's playing really well and not you? "It was quite unreal what he has done despite all the things he's been through", said Celtics big man Al Horford .

We meet again: Cavs, Raptors back together in postseason

The NBA playoffs is a 16-team, 4-round tournament, although it really functions as a combination of two separate 8-team, 3-round Conference playoffs. The conference is littered with the corpses of teams that have tried and failed. Usually, teams are not supposed to place their success on a single player, however, in the Cavs' situation, it is nearly kind of hard not to. He willed the Raptors into the Second Round after struggling early, topping the 30-point mark in two of the final three ...

DeShaun Watson to the Texans, when winning is not everything

Houston traded up to take the No.12 pick from Cleveland. It doesn't hurt that he'll have a very good group of pass catchers waiting for him in Houston .

NFL prospect: Rape report 'completely false,' skipping draft

Joe Mixon might be the most talented running back in the draft. I'm not going to speculate trades either because I'm not going to act like I know what each team is thinking. Hooker is the best centerfielder in the draft. At No. 1 they nearly certainly have to go with Texas A&M defensive end Myles Garrett . And while Watson played for two national championships, winning one, for Clemson, Trubisky went 8-5 as a starter last season after Williams departed.

James Paxton: Paxton fans nine in seven shutout innings

He struck out four, but was also tagged for a home run. "He's our horse, he's our guy and we're going to need him but hopefully, he's OK". They're too good to struggle like this for the whole season. "We all have to step up to replace Felix", Iwakuma said through an interpreter. "I wasn't really able to drive the ball in there". A prolonged losing streak could mean that the next bit of Seattle Mariners news is about the team unloading veterans at the Major League Baseball trade deadline.

Warriors get a break after drama-filled opening series

According to SF Gate , it is very likely that, with a commanding 3-0 series lead over the Portland Trail Blazers, Golden State might not want to bring Kevin Durant back until the Western Conference semifinals.
