Wasn’t pretty but they managed to get over the line. KD limping out on crutches and Looney injured again. Backs to wall for game 6. They will need the last game at Oracle to inspire them

Opinion is that if Steph Curry and Klay get 60 between them the Warriors have a chance.

Hard to see them doing it twice in a row though.

Kellen Winslow ll has been found guilty of the rape of a 58 year old homeless woman amongst other charges. The former Buccaneers tight end, number 6 pick in the draft and son of hall of fame tight end Kellen Winslow faces 15 years to life in jail on the rape charge.


Sounds pretty awful.

Thought Toronto really threw that match away. It was a game they should have won comfortably. Might be tough to recover from.

St Louis Blues are the oldest NHL team without a Stanley cup win. Up 2-0 at the moment.

Blues win game 7 on a 4-1 scoreline.  Hard to believe they were dead last on 3 January...some run since then.

Playoff NHL hockey is about as intense as sports can get.  Every team seems to have a chance - getting the hot goalie from April on is one of the main keys to success.

Toronto Raptors win the NBA title in Game 6. 

Warriors lost Klay Thompson to a knee injury early in the third quarter - he had 30 points when he left.  Coupled with the unavailable Durant, it was just too much to overcome.

Kawhi Leonard immense for Toronto.

Great to see!!! The City has been crying out for a proper Championship win since the 90s (MLS/Grey Cup doesn't really count does it?) hard to believe it's come in basketball.

Huge achievement for the raptors and absolute vindication for Kawhi aggers what happened last year in San Antonio. He gambled on himself and is going to win big, either in Toronto or anywhere else. Be interesting to see if he'll consider staying.

Klay tore his ACL. With KD likely to leave and Klay out, I wonder if they'll consider blowing things up. Five straight finals, three wins and a 73 win season will ensure they go down as one of the best teams of all time. Could still be plenty of line in them though and if KD stays, they'll start next year as deserved favourites once again.

Kyrie has opted out and looks like he's on his way to Brooklyn. The man is a cancer.
