NBA

We begin in the NBA where the Houston Rockets produced a stunning comeback on the road to take their playoff series with the Clippers to Game Seven.

Trailing by as many as 18 points, and with talisman James Harden on the bench, Houston outscored the Clippers 40-15 in the fourth-quarter to record a 119-107 win.

The following tweet pretty much sums up the incredible turnaround that left everyone in the Staples Center in a state of shock:

The Western Conference series now heads to Game Seven back in Houston, and Rockets fans will be hoping that, with role players having stepped up last night, star men Harden and Howard can combine to bring the series home.

The Cleveland Cavaliers meanwhile ensured there was no need for a defining game seven in their series against the Chicago Bulls.

Matthew Dellavedova was the unlikely here as the Cavs secured their place in the Eastern Conference Finals – his 19 points making up for a quiet night for LeBron James and Kyrie Irving.

NFL

Across to the NFL, and Pittsburgh Steelers star Le’Veon Bell has spoken about his three-game suspension handed down by the league after a marijuana possession charge.

The running back said he had no problems with the punishment and vowed to come back even better. He did though say that he hopes the NFL would consider reducing the punishment considering his cooperation since.

MLB

Finally, in baseball, the Yankees slipped to a third successive defeat after a 6-1 reverse against the Tampa Bay Rays.

The famous franchise are now 21-15 after losing the series to the Rays 4-1.
