    Sports

    It was the LeBron James show as the three-time National Basketball Association champion singlehandedly led the Cleveland Cavaliers to a 98-95 victory over the Indiana Pacers. Think about that. Eleven consecutive times James' team has finished off its opponent at first chance. Down by seven at half, the Cavs swarmed the Pacers in the third quarter, forcing five turnovers in the first six minutes and holding in to one field goal over the first 6:52 while opening with a 19-3 run.

    London Stadium will not host Cricket World Cup matches

    Sports

    The logic, it is learnt, is that the proposed ICC Test Championship, due to start in July 2019, will not have any day-night Tests, so it makes little sense for India to play a day-night Test against that backdrop. The next year will start on March 29 from the IPL. Given that the ICC Test Championships will only consist of day matches played with the red ball, the BCCI saw no objective in playing a day/night Test with a pink ball.

He scored 14 points on 5-of-17 shooting and turned the ball over eight times in 37 minutes, which helped result in a team-worst minus-25 plus-minus.

    It was tied 2-2 after the first period, and the Flyers came out strong in the second, with Cs Sean Couturier and Scott Laughton scoring to give the team a 4-2 lead. The series had been more cordial than confrontational but both teams cranked up the nastiness levels in Game 6. It was not enough because, well, the Flyers just simply did not have an answer for the Penguins' offense.
