If the first Saturday in May hasn't been Pletcher's finest hour, the rest of the racing calendar is dotted with his victories in major races. Their names are listed in another question below. Before we go into details about today's race, why don't we backtrack to see who was the victor of last year's Kentucky Derby? NBC will televise the race, with the network's coverage starting at 1:30 p.m.
In my series preview, I wrote that the Jazz will need to control the pace of the series to have a chance against the Warriors. The Jazz were at a big disadvantage against the loaded Warriors in Game 1, so it will take even more focus, execution and luck to make this second contest competitive against a team with Steph Curry, Klay Thompson , Kevin Durant and Draymond Green .
Wizards forward Kelly Oubre charges and knocks down Celtics center Kelly Olynyk . There were eight technical fouls and three ejections. Game 3 of the best-of-seven semi-final series was never close as the Wizards raced out to a 39-17 advantage in the first quarter and never looked back.
Patterson, who was 1-for-5 from the field in Game 1, drained his first shot attempt - a stunning three-pointer. For us to win the series, yeah, we've got to win one here, but right now we have to focus on Game 3, going back home, protecting home court.
The Oilers scored three consecutive goals to tie the game in the second period, but Christopher Wagner scored 9:28 into the middle period to put the Ducks ahead for good. "Any time you can be a plus line or chip one in like we did in Game 1", said McLeod, referring to Vernon Fiddler's game-winner late in the third period Wednesday night, "it's obviously going to help".
Andrej Sekera also scored for Edmonton, which also won the first two games on the road in the 2006 Western Conference Finals against Anaheim. "We let the game get away from us and we're in a 3-0 hole and the series isn't looking good". The Ducks had the past week off after sweeping the Flames, but both teams came out with a mid-series physical approach in the scoreless first period.
Fans may also view Day 3 pick announcements on NFL Draft live platforms - such as NFL.com, the NFL Mobile from Verizon app (NFL.com/mobile), NFL Now, the NFL app on Xbox One and Windows 10, and Yahoo! North Carolina quarterback Mitchell Trubisky was taken second overall by the Chicago Bears.
With all the anticipation for the 2017 Draft, sadly it is done and over with. The top two needs were taken care of with the selection of Corey Davis and Adoree' Jackson at picks 5 and 18. Patrick Mahomes II, quarterback , Texas Tech to Kansas City at No. 10. They did, but the order in which they took them was surprising. Although he is not elusive enough to create big plays from underneath passes, he is capable of making them using double moves, which he sells exceptionally well, and ...
There were few English players in either side for Southgate to cast his eye over but one of them, Berahino, was hoping to open his Stoke account 427 days on from his last goal for West Brom. Stoke also have a good recent record against the Hammers, having not lost any of their last seven meetings, which includes a 1-1 draw at the London Stadium back in November.
The Caps, by contrast, had only a single player who was appearing in his first post-season: depth winger Brett Connolly. Auston Matthews , putting an exclamation mark on a great year that surely will net him the Calder Trophy, scored for the fourth consecutive game, giving the Leafs a 1-0 lead at 7:45 of the third period.
We've just got to go home and regroup. The Rangers seemed to be in complete control after seizing the momentum during a second period in which they outshot the Sens 19-10. Boucher said he was pleased they were able to overcome the start. Lundqvist, in particular, looked off from the outset, including way back in the first period when he allowed Pageau to beat him over the shoulder with a sharp angle shot.
USF set almost 40 team and individual records in 2016, including team records for total yards (6,650), rushing yards (3,714), touchdowns (77) and scoring (569). King , Baker and Jones join Marcus Peters and Desmond Trufant as UW defensive backs recently selected in the National Football League draft. The shifty and explosive Williams ran for more than 3,900 yards and averaged 5.4 yards per carry in four seasons with the Cougars, but knee and ankle injuries kept him from producing more .
Boston 108, Chicago 97: Isaiah Thomas and Avery Bradley scored 24 points apiece to help the Boston Celtics beat the Chicago Bulls 108-97 on Wednesday night and take a 3-2 lead in their first-round playoff series. While the Hawks haven't won in Washington - a must if they are to advance to the second round - they have been close. Wall leads also in assists with 10.0 while Marcin Gortat tops in rebounds wit 11.8 per game.
Isaiah Thomas #4 of the Boston Celtics drives against Marcin Gortat #13 of the Washington Wizards. Crowder had 24 points and six rebounds while hitting six three pointers and Al Horford had 21 points, nine rebounds, and 10 assists on 10/13 from the field.
Anthony Joshua is enjoying a well deserved rest this week as he basks in the glory of beating Wladimir Klitschko in front of a sell out 90,000 crowd at Wembley. " Fury, where you at, baby? " he asked. Joshua has become a source of pride for Sagamu indigenes who celebrated his win on Saturday. Joshua and Fury have both indulged in posturing regarding a showdown in the aftermath of the former's victory over Klitschko, although Hearn has ruled out the fight's potential for the foreseeable ...
I talked before the match about what big occasions Champions League semi-finals are - but for Real it looked like a normal game of football. "It is great to have a player like Ronaldo". But first they must get past free-scoring Monaco, although Real will always be favourites against just about any side on the continent. They would have expected to create a few chances, such is the quality of talent in their side, but Atletico's attack was as invisible as its defence was porous on Tuesday.
FA Cup and Champions League exits to Arsenal and Monaco respectively in recent weeks mean that Guardiola - whose side are 13 points adrift of league leaders Chelsea - will end a season without a trophy for the first time in his managerial career.
That's some elite company, @jakenbake20 . The Penguins have a 2-0 advantage, and the series is coming back to Pittsburgh for Game 3. This postseason, though, the team's identity has slightly changed. They are already playing without defenseman Kris Letang , who will miss the entire playoffs after undergoing neck surgery. Anderson's ability to stop breakaways sets him apart, and making the timely save is sometimes even more valuable than making a large quantity of them.
The first inclination the Capitals would have to counter the Leafs' momentum coming off Game 3 would be to unleash the same flurry of big hits in Game 4. We've got some room here. "We know what we have to do to prepare for the next game and we're going to do everything we can to make sure that we're ready".
