    Prior to Thursday, the Raptors were 0-3 in Game 6 since Dwane Casey took over as coach in 2011. "I know what we have in that locker room, and that's some fighters and scrappers". However, in game six the Raptors built up a 25-point lead only to blow it and allow the Bucks back in the game. However, the Raptors went on a 9-0 run in the final two minutes to put this one out of reach, and it was Milwaukee's poor free throw shooting which held them back in the end - they finished 18-of-28 ...

Da Handanovic a Icardi: non si salva nessuno e non ci sono più intoccabili.

    The total has gone over in four of Golden State's last five games on the road. Or, Utah can take away that three-pointer by staying attached to perimeter players in transition. In fact, several Warriors struggled offensively to get in a rhythm with the Jazz paying physical, aggressive defense. And once Durant found his rhythm, it was impossible to cool him off.
  • 'Canelo' Alvarez And Gennady Golovkin To Finally Fight

    Many in the boxing community felt that this was the fight that Chavez Jr. would showcase his talents. No one thought the Mayweather-Pacquiao fight would happen but I had patience.
