Best sights, sounds and reactions from Kawhi Leonard's series-clinching game-winner

Best sights, sounds and reactions from Kawhi Leonard's series-clinching game-winner

The Blazers were able to bottle him up in a Game 2 win but Jokic is averaging 26.8 points, 14 rebounds and 8.7 assists in the series with two triple-doubles. "Game 7s are what you play for, what you work for". They're nearly certainly the more exciting team.

The United States got a goal in each half through Samantha Mewis and a late third from substitute Carli Lloyd to earn a 3-0 win over South Africa in a Women's World Cup warm-up in California on Sunday.

The Nuggets have played well against the spread importantly and they have one of the best home court advantages in the league. The victor of Game 7 in Canada will keep their championship hopes alive, while the loser will suffer a disappointing end to their playoff run and potentially cost themselves a chance to keep their core intact beyond this season. Still, Murray's activity on offense will be vital for the Nuggets and it's nearly certain that we will witness that from the young gunner in Game 7.

The Sixers have dominated the glass, outrebounding Toronto in every game but one.

"I'm sure they feel that way, too", Millsap said.

During their last five games, the Trail Blazers have scored an average of 113.2 points per game (1.2 below their season average) and allowed an average of 115.0 points per game (4.5 above their season average).

Lillard has not had the electricity in his game that he did when called out in the Thunder series. He still scored 29 points on 20 field-goal attempts while grabbing 12 rebounds and dishing out five assists.

"I was disappointed I missed that free throw", Leonard said.


For those who watched closely the 2001 Eastern semifinal, they may recall how the Raptors, the lower seed, held a 2-1 advantage with Game 4 on their home floor. He has been shooting the three better in the postseason, and has been ultimately aggressive in creating his shots.

Considering what they've seen so far in the playoffs, their history against both teams from the regular season, and the matchups they'd have to deal with, should Milwaukee even have a clear and obvious preference between the two teams?

Gasol said he draws confidence in the team's bounceback ability.

"Growing, it's not always on your terms". The best shot during that possession. "Before the game, my brother texted me and told me not to settle". How we responded, I liked that. After being down 2-1 earlier in the series and having their backs against the wall, the Blue Jays moved on the ALCS and the Rogers Centre went bonkers, along with baseball fans across the country. And now we're 3-3.

Leonard, who was the Finals MVP in 2014, was asked about the Game 7 jitters. So just go out and play. "Sometimes you have to force yourself to get away from it".

"It was great", Leonard said. Basketball is just go out there and play, do your job, have fun. "The most important thing in life is family and health".

Having wrapped up their series with the Boston Celtics and securing a spot in the Eastern Conference Finals on Wednesday, Mike Budenholzer's team are now enjoying the chance to rest ahead of their next challenge. Curry dropped 31, including several daggers as he and a hot-shooting Thompson helped to remind us all of how incredible the Warriors' backcourt is, and how potent the team is with or without Durant.

While the Raptors are short on bodies, the Bucks have a 10-man rotation now that Malcolm Brogdon is back. We have a lot of competitive guys who don't want to lose.
