CLEVELAND (AP) — The Cavaliers have some momentum. Maybe even enough to get LeBron James back.

Shortly after free agency opened Tuesday, the Cavs agreed to terms on a new five-year contract extension with Kyrie Irving, a deal that locks up the All-Star point guard for six years. It also puts to rest notions he was unhappy with the Cavs or they didn't see the 22-year-old as a cornerstone player.

Updated, Match-fixer denies predicting World Cup result PDF Print E-mail

RIO DE JANEIRO (AP) — A convicted match-fixer denied a report in a German magazine Tuesday that he predicted the result and details of a World Cup game.
Cameroon's football federation said it was investigating the match-fixer's allegations of corruption involving its World Cup squad and that seven of its players could have been bought.
Der Spiegel magazine claimed that Wilson Raj Perumal — the best-known match-fixer in football— accurately predicted hours before the game in an online chat with one of its journalists that Cameroon would lose 4-0 to Croatia and have a player sent off in the first half.
And that is what happened in the June 18 match. Cameroon's Barcelona midfielder Alex Song was red-carded before halftime for elbowing Croatia striker Mario Mandzukic in the back and Cameroon was beaten 4-0.

The 144th-ranked Kyrgios, a wild-card entry, hit 37 aces and delivered a between-the-legs winner on one point. He is the first man to get to the quarterfinals in his Wimbledon debut in 10 years.

He's also the first player ranked outside the top 100 to beat the No. 1 man at a Grand Slam tournament since No. 193 Andrei Olhovskiy defeated Jim Courier at Wimbledon in 1992.
