However, investigators cited by Suddeutsche Zeitung said they were also looking into the possibility that the document was a false trail deliberately laid by another perpetrator.

He hadn't played since February 21 and had five goals and 29 assists in 41 games. Was he hurt? Did he get nicked up in his last start? Too quietly for a team that is heading into an important playoff matchup with a divisional foe like Pittsburgh .
The 76ers are minor underdogs but I wouldn't be surprised if they won this game, but instead I'm going for the Knicks to get the win and cover purely because they'll want to give their home fans a nice send off. Despite being 6-foot-10 coming out of LSU, Simmons himself was projected by many to possibly play point guard - or at least point forward - given his passing and ballhandling talents.
The hosts' hopes of a comeback evaporated within 46 seconds of kick-off in the second half as Luke Shaw fed Mkhitaryan to drill a low, angled shot beyond Pickford's dive.

But it didn't happen. "My focus is on us and what we need to do". I think that would be great if all the odds are against us and we make the playoffs. That's what I'll have to do, sit my money aside. "We have to go get better ". Nah I'm just playing. One might argue that if you are going to beat the Cavaliers, you want to do it early in the playoffs before they build momentum.
That was the era when Pete Sampras and Andre Agassi rivalry ruled tennis and these new kids on the block were expected to do the same in golf. "Justin played beautifully.

Archer speculates that "whenever Romo opts to officially retire, he could re-sign with the Cowboys in a ceremonial way and then be placed on the reserve/retired list". Players who are ready to walk away from the game they love usually say they "left everything they had on the field". The Mavericks are already out of the playoffs, and there was literally nothing to play for against the Nuggets.
That Westbrook is nearly worth the exorbitant price of admission is also not reason he's the MVP. Matt Moore of CBS Sports voted James Harden for MVP and gave a solid argument why that's the case. The fans are louder during the playoffs, players don't hold back in the playoffs, and it creates a new atmosphere for the playoffs. Who knew he could pass like this? Westbrook's Thunder, on the other hand, are having a solid season, but OKC will enter their first playoff matchup as the lower ...

A home run in any other stadium, the ball was caught by the wall, and Bradley settled for the sacrifice fly and a 1-0 Boston lead. "He's intentionally walked guys a couple times to get to me before", Castellanos said. "There's no die in this team". It is hard enough dealing with any type of injuries related to baseball that come up during any season, but the Red Sox are also worrying about flu that has been running rampant through the clubhouse during the last week.
What the Detroit bullpen squandered, the Boston relievers had given right back. Castellanos was able to advance to second base on a throwing error from third baseman Brock Holt , putting both runners in scoring position.

If they win both of those games, Miami will then need either IN or Chicago to lose one of their next two games. "We started out of the gate bad on defense, so I was just trying to huddle the guys up, telling them to stay focused, lock in on this end and everything will work out".
One has been arrested. The blast had a radius of more than 100 metres (yards), federal prosecutors said, adding it was lucky the toll was not heavier.

The decision has many players unhappy. The move disappointed one of Canada's hockey greats not just as a former player, but as a fan, he said.

Terrence Ross drained six three-pointers on his way to a team-high 29 points while Evan Fournier added 23 points and Elfrid Payton chipped in with 10 points and 10 assists. Go get better, man.

Schematically, the Bulls don't switch very often on the pick and roll and, more often than not, the big involved in the play will drop back rather than blitz.
We have to respond. Furious away fans taunted Arsenal's misfiring players with chants of " You're not fit to wear the shirt!

Davies was less-than-stellar in his season debut, allowing six runs on nine hits and walking four in a 6-5 loss to the Rockies on Tuesday.

Iniesta insisted: "We will turn the tie around if we do things as we need to do in Barcelona ".
MLB spokesman Pat Courtney said Wednesday that the league is confident about reaching a positive resolution. Chief Wahoo's days certainly appear numbered-the question will be how much longer he can survive.

While Arsenal appear to have turned a corner, the defeat for West Ham marked a fifth straight loss as Slaven Bilic's side continue to fall deeper into the fight for top-flight survival. "It's not being negative, it is being realistic".
