RIO DE JANEIRO --?Chris Langridge and Marcus Ellis are closing in on Britains first Olympic badminton medal for 12 years and hoping to do a Leicester.The last time Team GB made the semifinals was also in 2004 but the doubles act updated that record on Monday when they beat Japans Hiroyuki Endo and Kenichi Hayakawa in straight games 21-19, 21-17.Langridge and Ellis, ranked No. 22 in the world, are now guaranteed to play for at least a bronze medal but the outlook could be even better if they beat Haifeng Fu and Zhang Nan on Tuesday, and a shock title win has entered their thoughts.Our record against the Chinese pair is not as good as we would like but anything can happen, Langridge said. We are going to go out there and hopefully do a Leicester.Its insane really -- if you had told me before the start that we would make the semifinals, I would have bitten your hand off.Langridge, 31, said later the surprise victory over the world No. 8 pairing had been the result of 21 years of hard work.?We are one of these pairs that are quite up and down, added the Milton Keynes-based player. But this tournament we have shown our ability throughout the group and knockout stages.I am not competitive outside of badminton, I would let my missus win at bowling if she wanted to - but not badminton.We give everything on court and you can see from our emotion how badly we wanted it -- it means everything to be in the semifinals.

He didnt play in the fourth.Hes always looking for his teammates, Kanter said. Hes looking to score, but he knows that hes going to get double-teamed, triple-teamed. They cannot guard him.

Miami shot just 36.9 percent from the field.You have to give them credit defensively, Heat coach Erik Spoelstra said. Theyve shown this year theyre long, theyre athletic, they make multiple efforts.The Thunder led 55-47 at halftime, despite Westbrooks 2-for-10 shooting.The Heat chopped their deficit down to four before Westbrook went off. He converted a three-point play, a mid-range jumper and a 3-pointer to spark a 20-0 run that put the game out of reach.Hes a great player, so hes going to have his fingerprints on the game one way or another, Spoelstra said.
