Pete Alonso smokes a 456-foot shot to left field, scoring Brandon Nimmo and giving the Mets a 2-0 lead in the top of the 1st inning
Draymond Green tells Paul Pierce to 'shut up' about LeBron originally appeared on NBC Sports Washington Never one to back down from a fight, or any controversy, Warriors star Draymond Green is making headlines again after going after former Celtics star Paul Pierce. Pierce, who spent a season in Washington late in his career, made waves saying players in the NBA today are scared of LeBron James, and that his generation of players were never scared. Green, who of course is a member of the current generation of stars playing against James, didn't appreciate this comments.
Cincinnati Bengals quarterback Joe Burrow had an injury scare in Week 3 against the Philadelphia Eagles after taking a big shot while throwing on the run and leaving the game. Burrow, throwing off one foot, got blasted high by an Eagles defender and officials immediately flagged the play. Ryan Finley entered the game for Burrow (and promptly got blasted while trying to throw a block), but the backup stayed in for just a single play before the No. 1 overall pick returned (and promptly took a sack on third down to end the drive).
Celtic 3 Hibernian 0 Celtic completed a productive passage by mastering Hibernian at Celtic Park, where Callum McGregor, Albian Ajeti and Mo Elyounoussi contributed the goals which allowed Neil Lennon to make a cluster of substitutions with an eye on Thursday's Europa League play-off in Sarajevo. A week of intriguing contrasts had seen Rangers deprived of two points by Hibs at Easter Road before beating Willem II 4-0 in the Europa League and then posting a 5-1 victory over Motherwell at Fir Park. The question in this fixture was whether Hibs would extend their disruptive tendency to the other half of the Old Firm or would Celtic respond in kind to Rangers' display of strength in Lanarkshire.
UFC president Dana White gives his biggest star, Conor McGregor, a lot of leeway most times. White responded to a recent tweet in which McGregor posted screenshots of a private messaging conversation between the two earlier this year. McGregor was tweeting about how he had asked for a fight with Diego Sanchez and how the White quickly shot down the idea.
It all depends what game you were talking about,” James said. There were a couple games where I was at home. There was one or two games where I was in Cabo and a couple games where I was at a hookah lounge during the Finals last year.
The autumnal French Open got off to an inauspicious start when Victoria Azarenka refused to continue playing her first-round match against Danka Kovinic because of the conditions. Rain was in the air and the wind whipping up the clay on a deserted Court Suzanne Lenglen as Azarenka began her contest with Montenegrin Kovinic wearing a jacket. After three games, which all went with serve, a chilly Azarenka sat down on her chair and demanded to see the supervisor.
Tyronn Lue was the frontrunner to succeed Luke Walton, but Lue rejected a three-year offer to coach a team that was coming off a non-playoff finish and was thrust into turmoil when Magic Johnson unexpectedly resigned as president of basketball operations. Vogel, who earned respect for his smart defensive strategy while coaching Indiana but stumbled with mediocre Orlando teams, might not have been the Lakers' second choice. Monty Williams, then an assistant in Philadelphia, was prominent in the mix of candidates, but Williams took a five-year offer from Phoenix while the Lakers sorted through their options.
No. 6 Ohio State, No. 10 Penn State and No. 14 Oregon returned to The Associated Press college football poll on Sunday, weeks before they start playing, creating a Top 25 as unusual as this season. At the top of the rankings this week, Clemson remained No. 1 with 55 first-place votes, followed by Alabama at No. 2 with three first-place votes. The rest of the rankings was rattled by the Big Ten, Pac-12, Mountain West and Mid-American conferences reversing course and deciding to play fall football after initially postponing because of COVID-19 concerns.
It's frustrating because you see the team that you have around you and you know we should be there - we should easily be there,'' Phillies outfielder Andrew McCutchen said Saturday night after a 4-3 loss at Tampa Bay left Philadelphia on the brink of elimination. To be on the outside looking in right now, it can be frustrating at times. The Phillies (28-31) got a reprieve hours later, staying in the race when San Francisco lost to San Diego.
A recent aerial photo of Augusta National Golf Club makes it easy to get nervous when you start thinking about the first-ever November Masters, and how it's just a handful of weeks away. The 84th edition of the grand tournament, which was supposed to be played in its traditional April slot, was re-scheduled for Nov. 9-15. But the shot, which made the rounds on social media, is simply the famous golf course's traditional September look.
“I came here to block, baby” could make it onto a T-shirt, but that's hardly an accurate representation of why the Buccaneers traded for the privilege of paying Rob Gronkowski $9 million this year. Gronk, in true Gronk fashion, laughed off his lack of involvement in the Tampa Bay offense through two games, saying “[f]our targets is four more than I thought I was going to get.” Gronk came back to do Gronk things.
Continue to ride the hot hand against the Vikings, whose defense was ravaged by injuries in Week 2…Mitchell Trubisky isn't a name that jumps out as a fantasy asset, but he's going up against a Falcons defense that's allowed the most fantasy points to opposing quarterbacks in the league through the first two weeks…The Buccaneers' offense will finally have both Mike Evans and Chris Godwin suiting up in the same game, just in time for a matchup against a Broncos team that will have trouble controlling the ball down so many offensive skill players. Sit 'em Deshaun Watson, HOU (at PIT) Carson Wentz, PHI (vs. CIN) Matthew Stafford, DET (at ARI) Nope, that's not a typo.
Longtime NBA star Allen Iverson made waves this week on the "All The Smoke" podcast when he said he wants to see Bucks star Giannis Antetokounmpo join the Golden State Warriors. In all seriousness, Giannis on the Warriors would be scary. When Kevin Durant teamed up with Steph Curry, Draymond Green and Klay Thompson, the Warriors formed one of the most intimidating, successful dynasties in NBA history, even if it only lasted a few seasons.
Gauff then reached the third round at the U.S. Open last year, and the fourth round at the Australian Open this year, beating 2019 champion Naomi Osaka along the way. Things had been a bit tougher for Gauff lately: She entered the French Open having lost four of her past five matches. But she handled the cold weather and heavy conditions better than Konta, a three-time Grand Slam semifinalist.
DJ LeMahieu is on the verge of a first in more than a century of Major League Baseball: the first player to win undisputed batting titles in both the American and National Leagues. Luke Voit is about to become a more common name atop the leaderboards but part of an illustrious list, joining Babe Ruth, Lou Gehrig, Joe DiMaggio, Mickey Mantle, Roger Maris and Alex Rodriguez as New York Yankees to top the majors in home runs. I've always admired the Babe,'' Voit said after the Yankees woke up from their latest slump to beat the Miami Marlins 11-4 Saturday and kept their hold on the AL's No.
Below, we'll tell you who's in and who still has a chance to make MLB's expanded postseason. The Chicago Cubs are back on top in the NL Central. It's the Cubs third division championship since 2016 and their sixth since the NL Central was created in 1994.
He spent 13 years with the Rangers, but Marc Staal will begin next season in a new sweater for the first time in his career. New York traded Staal, as well as a second-round pick, to the Detroit Red Wings for "future considerations." The trade clears up more cap space for New York -- $5.7 million to be exact.
Top-seeded Simona Halep won 10 straight games in beating Sara Sorribes Tormo 6-4, 6-0 to reach the second round of the French Open on Sunday and extend her winning streak to 15 matches. ''It was really special day playing on Roland Garros on my birthday,'' she said. Wearing thick black leggings and a long-sleeved pink jersey to combat the chilly conditions on Court Philippe Chatrier, the 2018 champion made a series of unforced errors and trailed 4-2.
Last week, Fox NFL analyst Terry Bradshaw said that the Detroit Lions were wasting Matthew Stafford. The four-time Super Bowl champ and longtime TV star didn't hold back on Sunday's pregame show either. After showing an interview with actor and loyal Michigan native Jeff Daniels, who shared his thoughts on the Lions (don't worry, they weren't too different from what you always here).
The Las Vegas Raiders will make the cross country trip to take on the New England Patriots on Sunday at Gillette Stadium.
