Philippe Coutinho vows to honour Liverpool contract amid Champions League excitement

Tottenham will be in next season's Champions League group stage, and Liverpool are two qualifying games away, but what awaits them might mean they go no further in the competition than that. Arsenal's loss was Liverpool's gain as they qualified for Europe's top competition for just the second time since 2009.

North Carolina's Tony Bradley to remain NBA Draft

On Wednesday morning, Jeff Goodman of ESPN reported the 6-foot-10 forward has chose to remain in the 2017 NBA Draft after feedback received through the draft process indicated he will become a first-round pick in June. Bradley, a native of Bartow, Florida, shot 57.3 percent from the field and 61.9 percent from the foul line in his lone season as a Tar Heel.

There was a precedent at Chelsea , with Didier Drogba carried off by his team-mates midway through the first half of his farewell appearance, also against Sunderland, on the day Chelsea lifted the Premier League trophy in 2015.

What they saw was a stunning 111-108 come-from-behind victory for the Celtics when Avery Bradley made a three-pointer with 0.1 seconds to go in the fourth quarter in game three of the Eastern Conference finals. More teams have begun using their point guards as screeners to force switches, though you normally see them screening for a wing - think of the Irving-LeBron James pick and roll Cleveland used to abuse Steph Curry a year ago.



Kyrie Irving's monster night fuels Cavaliers in Game 4 comeback

We'll have scoring updates in the box score above, as well as updates and analysis in the comments. But beyond James' foul trouble, the Cavs were having other issues as the Celtics outplayed them at both ends while opening a 16-point lead.



Jason Day loses playoff on US PGA Tour

About the same time Day's 16-foot birdie try at No. 18 curled just under the hole, causing him to wince, Hahn went to 11 under for the lead with his 13-foot birdie at the 15th hole. You'd much rather win a tournament with a birdie rather than watch your opponent three-putt, but that's just the way the game is. Kokrak will be kicking himself after he blew a five-shot overnight lead.
