Published Add your comment

Sports fans, hello and welcome.

It’s the end of the working week, which usually means that at least half of your brain has shut itself down in preparation for the weekend.

We implore you to open up as much of it as possible to ingest the major news from today. Watch the video above for the major headlines and read on below for more.

Curry on form again

If the Golden State Warriors are truly unstoppable at the moment then there’s no disputing who their leading star is.

That’s right, Stephen Curry was once again in irresistible form on Thursday as the Warriors put the Minnesota Timberwolves to the sword 129-116.


At times, the T-Wolves gave spirited fightbacks, but it was the Warriors who were unquestionably the force in the driving seat throughout.

Curry managed to notch 46 points on his own - classy work from the reigning MVP.

Irving return

In other news, Kyrie Irving still has a way to go before he can hope to return from rehab, according to Cleveland Cavaliers coach David Blatt.

Irving fractured his left kneecap in Game 1 of the NBA Finals when the Cavs took on the Warriors on June 4. He hasn’t yet featured in a practice session - Blatt said they were taking ‘small steps’.

Here's the injury again:

Dez Bryant's locker-room rant

In the NFL meanwhile, Dallas Cowboys star Dez Bryant embarked on a ten-minute rant at journalists in his team’s locker-room - much to the dismay of those on the receiving end.

Footage of Bryant blowing his top can be found below, and it’s rumoured that it was because of the use of a racial term.

Journalists have denied the claim:

Bryant himself has since fired a retort on his own Twitter:

Bills beat the Jets

Lastly, the New York Jets were humbled 22-17 in their own backyard last night when the Buffalo Bills and ex-Jets coach Rex Ryan came to town.

The Bills were impressive - it must be said - but one can’t help but concede that the Jets were the objects of their own downfall as they had four turnovers in the game.
