LeBron James needed stitches in a head wound after colliding with a camera as his Cleveland Cavaliers side were beaten 103-82 by Golden State Warriors in game four of the NBA finals.
 
Stephen Curry and Andre Iguodala scored 22 points each as the Warriors levelled the best-of-seven series at 2-2.
 
James, hurt when a foul by Andrew Bogut caused him to fall at the side of the court, finished with 20 points.
Sunday's fifth game is at Golden State's home in Oakland, California.

Rafael Nadal overcame a stubborn Marcos Baghdatis in Stuttgart as he attempts to get his season back on track.
 
The 29-year-old Spaniard, down to 10th in the world rankings, beat the Cypriot 7-6 (7-5) 6-7 (4-7) 6-2 on grass to reach the Mercedes Cup quarter-finals.

Bolt unafraid of Gatlin

Double-Olympic champion Usain Bolt has dismissed suggestions he is "afraid" of facing in-form American Justin Gatlin.
 
The 33-year-old has run 2015's fastest 100m and 200m - 9.75 and 19.68 seconds - but is yet to race Bolt this season.
 
The pair are set to meet in the World Championships in Beijing in August, along with other leading sprinters Tyson Gay and Asafa Powell.

Vranes lauds players efforts


Zoran Vranes says the T&T's Pan AM and Olympic Games players are working very hard with what little help they have, and what is needed is help from Government and corporate T&T.
 
A former T&T senior and Under-20 World Cup coach, Vranes was speaking after his combined team came up against the senior Soca Warriors in a practice scrimmage at the Hasely Crawford Stadium, Mucurapo, yesterday.
 
The two teams were using the matches as part of preparations for upcoming engagements, with the Stephen Hart-coached senior team set to depart Thursday for a friendly international against Jordan.
Playing in their first game since December 2014, T&T's Women Senior team recored an impressive 9-2 victory over a Women's Premier League XI at the Hasely Crawford Stadium.
 
Tobago-born striker Kenya Cordner scored a hat-trick on Tuesday evening as the Women Warriors thrashed a group of visiting foreign based players 9-2.
 
The foreign based players are part of a group that Minister of Sports Brent Sancho has brought in to be part of the inaugural Women's Premier League (WPL) in Trinidad and Tobago which is set to kick-off June 19.

Rogers concedes doctor was right

Chris Rogers has conceded that team doctor Peter Brukner was right to rule him out of both Tests in the West Indies after he suffered concussion when he was struck on the helmet at training. 
 
Rogers said he had had "some pretty bad days" since the incident in the lead-up to the first Test, but he was hopeful that he was on the way to recovery after facing throwdowns in the nets on Thursday.
 
Rogers initially thought the incident was innocuous but he has suffered from headaches and dizziness since then, and admitted he would not have been fit for the ongoing second Test in Jamaica. 

Gayle focused on Windies

Chris Gayle may have taken the county circuit by storm in his hard-hitting introduction to the NatWest T20 Blast, but home remains where the heart is for a man who yearns for another chance to represent West Indies on the international stage.
 
With scores of 92, 151 not out and 85 not out in his three appearances to date for Somerset, Gayle has amassed 328 runs for once out, from 170 balls and with a remarkable 29 sixes - almost three times the tally of any other player in the competition.
 
Yet, with a Test series currently underway between West Indies and Australia in the Caribbean, Gayle cannot help but have half an eye on the fortunes of his team, for whom he scored an ODI career-best 215 against Zimbabwe in the recent World Cup.

Smith century holds off Windies

Steve Smith hit his fifth century in six Tests as Australia reached 258-4 on the opening day of the final Test against West Indies in Jamaica.
 
After Jerome Taylor struck twice in his first three overs without conceding a run, Smith (135 not out) shared 118 in 34 overs with Michael Clarke (47).
 
Smith is the only man to hit more than 2,000 Test runs in the past two years.
 
Australia, who won the first Test by nine wickets, next play England in the first Ashes Test in Cardiff on 8 July.
Lewis Hamilton blamed losing the Austrian Grand Prix to team-mate Nico Rosberg on a technical problem with his car's start procedure.
 
Hamilton started from pole but made a slow start and was passed on the run to the first corner by Rosberg, who dominated the rest of the race.
 
The problem started, Hamilton said, after Mercedes made changes to the cars' clutches ahead of last month's Spanish Grand Prix.
Defending Wimbledon champion Petra Kvitova has pulled out of the Aegon International with illness.
 
The 25-year-old Czech was due to start her Wimbledon preparations in the second round at Eastbourne on Tuesday.
 
But the number one seed will now go to the All England Club without playing any competitive grass-court tennis, having not played since her fourth-round exit in the French Open.
