Durant delivered his dagger to silence Cleveland’s crowd.
The shot clock was running down, I was pretty far out, I just wanted to get a look, Durant said. I didn’t want to run there and shoot a bad shot, fall on the ground and they got numbers going the other way so I decided to pull up.
James made a layup to pull the Cavs within four, it was too little too late as the Warriors closed it out and beat Cleveland for the fourth straight time in finals games.
A 25-year-old defenseman, Miller had seen regular time for two seasons with the Bruins. It was expected that the Bruins would protect him over 29-year-old defenseman Kevan Miller because Colin is younger and has top-four potential. The Bruins did not. So Colin Miller was selected and promptly led all Knights defensemen in points (41) while playing 82 games. It turns out Boston decided to hang on to Miller Lite.
You can see, it’s like all of a sudden he’s running on an ice rink, Bush’s lawyer Tim Cronin told jurors in opening statements, via the St. Louis Post-Dispatch. Whatever risks a football player assumes, concrete 11 yards outside the sidelines is not one of them.
Bush seeks at least $25,000 in damages, though he doesn’t put a price tag on the injury.
Buffalo viewed the 22-year-old Carrier as a player with speed and promise. The Golden Knights viewed the Sabres’ expansion offerings as slim pickings and thought the 2013 second-rounder was an easy choice. Sure, Buffalo could use a young, ascending player such as Carrier, but GM Jason Botterill prioritized saving goaltending prospect Linus Ullmark. Carrier added spark and a level of grit to Vegas’ bottom six in limited action (30 regular-season games) but has missed time these playoffs with injury.
The Knights took the unusual step of drafting Engelland despite the fact that he was a pending unrestricted free agent. He had been a serviceable depth defenseman for the Penguins and Flames, but he set career bests in points (23), average ice time (20:17) and fewest penalty minutes (24) this season. And he was so much more than that: The 36-year-old Vegas resident served as a city ambassador for his teammates, and his emotional speech on opening night after the shooting massacre on the Strip helped immediately bond the team with the city.
