    How worried are you about Celtics closing this out?

    Didn't someone here do the maths last year about 0-3 deficits in the NBA and the summary was basically that an outcome where a team comes back to win 4-3 is arguably 'due soon'? I searched the pre-game posts of last year's Game 7 ECF, & post-game posts of last year's Game 6, but couldn't find...

    Some updates: Yes, USA advanced with a NR over Ireland. No 'Qudrat ka nizam'/Pakistan in the Super 8 this go-around. USA are set to play South Africa in the Super 8s. SA's bowlers have enjoyed some good form this tourney; Nortje/Marco Jansen/Rabada/Baartman/Markham are all elite players or have...

    Got to get in as many as they can before people click off the game for the rest of the night.

    NBA Finals: Celtics vs Mavs

    There was 1 game this season where he had made 2 half-court+ shots in the dying seconds of different quarters. But the 2nd one was just too late to count. Was it against Sacramento?

    What will be the next number retired by the Celtics?

    Honestly, call me mad, but I could see 0, 7, 9, & 42. And I'd love it! If DW agrees an extension, plays for us another 5-6 years, I think he'll eventually get up there, especially if he can win 1-2+ championships with us. I mean, we retired Satch Sanders' #16. Why not Derrick White?

    6/9 - Finals Game B vs. DAL - 48 > 40

    The guy is Big Ben. I doubt he's injured at all, minus the usual cuts & bruises everyone has this far into the season. It's just theatrics.

    That was looking a bit dicey from SA's perspective until David Miller decided enough was enough & put them over the line. Curious: how was the venue itself (seating, vantage points, concessions, etc.)?

    Not to be a cop out, but 2 things can be true. American cricket is definitely improving. This side just swept Bangladesh in the warm-up matches. Of course, that was here in the States. How US Cricket would fare travelling to other countries on a tour is a question. But as @thehitcat points out...

    Lol, yeah that match was mad. 1st off, US won the toss and wanted to have a bowl first, sending PAK's opening batsmen Mohammad Rizwan and Babar Azam out. For anyone who may not know (this thread may get more eyeballs than usual given today's famous result) both of those guys are elite. Like...

    He'd be fun to have on the team, but no way he slips past the Flames at #9.

    Wow, what a cracking game of cricket last night between Oman/Namibia. These sides always seem to each other very close. Sometimes it is a matter of millimetres, & unfortunately for Oman, that was the case. After posting up 109, Oman set out to defend that score against Namibia. It got to the...

    Well, IPL Final came and went. KKR quickly & efficiently dispatched SRH to win their 3rd title. SRH batted 1st, & only put up 113 (18.3O). Mitchell Starc (KKR) won PotM with 2/14, & 2 catches. Andre Russell had captured 3 wickets as well. SRH's Abhishek Sharma & Travis Head, an opening...

    2024 IPL's Final awaits us on Sunday; it has all come down to this. KKR/SRH played 1st, winner guaranteed a Final berth. KKR quickly went to work wit their bowling attack - giving Travis Head a duck 0(2). Abhishek Sharma was quickly held to 3(4) before retiring. SRH's powerplay, which had...

    NFL looking into hosting regular season games in: Australia, Brazil, Britain, France, Germany, Ireland, Italy, Japan & the Middle East

    As someone who has been following AFL, NRL (yes, I like both), & BBL, start times in Australia are brutal. Time difference where I live (Central Time Zone) is 15 hours with the eastern part of Australia, 14 from Adelaide, & 13 from Perth. So subtract an hour for Eastern Time Zone. A noon game...

    Arsenal 23-24: Watch this Space

    Man, the loss at Craven Cottage was arguably the difference (although this year's Fulham were much improved). Proud of the squad, but it sucks to be so agonisingly close: just 2 points away. Now we buckle ourselves in for silly season. I've not heard or seen the rumour of Álvaro Vallés, but he...
