Drama has followed Bayern Munich coach Niko Kovac this season, and the latest headlines came as his side's defensive flaws were dramatically exposed by Augsburg over the weekend. In studying the play and shape of Bayern, it was discovered that their defence begin matches quite far up the field and that an opportunity to get behind them early could bring rewards. In their final session before facing Bayern, 15th placed Augsburg worked on a plan to catch them out. And it worked. Within 14 seconds of kick-off they had caused such chaos in the Bayern back-line that Leon Goretzka diverted the ball into his own net. It was the fastest own goal in Bundesliga history and a moment that has been dissected ever since. "The coach had looked at a few videos, and the Bayern players are always there—ev erything went as we wished," Augsburg's Philipp Max told German reporters. "It was the same kick-off we had tried in our last session. When it worked I had to smile a bit."

PORTLAND, Ore. — With 25 games remaining in the regular season, there isn't much of a question as to whether the Golden State Warriors will reach their fifth consecutive NBA Finals; it's how easily they'll get there. Late in their final game before the All-Star break, a 129-107 loss to the Portland Trail Blazers, Warriors head coach Steve Kerr was ejected for smashing a whiteboard while disputing a flagrant foul call against Draymond Green. It was simultaneously a canny early exit for a weeklong vacation and a way to keep things interesting in a game that was otherwise meaningless for the two-time defending champions. That's where the Warriors are right now. At 41-16, they're on pace to win "only" 59 games. They hold a two-game lead over the Denver Nuggets for the top seed in the Western Conference and have won 18 of their last 21 games. Any intrigue about playoff matchups giving them problems feels manufactured. The only moments of drama in this Warriors season have been of the … [Read more...] about Is Draymond Green Right That ‘Luck Might’ve Run Out’ for Other West Contenders?
