KITZBUEHEL, Austria -- Fourth-seeded Paolo Lorenzi missed 12 match points before defeating Gerald Melzer of Austria 7-6 (4), 7-6 (13) on Friday and setting up a final against Nikoloz Basilashvili of Georgia at the Generali Open.The 48th-ranked Italian dropped 5-2 behind and saved four set points for Melzer in the opening set. He missed six match points at 5-4 in the second set and six more in the tiebreaker before finally wrapping up the win.The match was interrupted for almost two hours because of rain in the second set with Lorenzi leading 4-3.Seeking his first career title, Lorenzi appears in his second final after losing to Federico Delbonis of Argentina at Sao Paolo two years ago. He has not played Basilashvili before.Lorenzi became the highest-ranked player left in the tournament after Dominic Thiem, Philipp Kohlschreiber and Marcel Granollers all lost their opening matches at the clay-court event in the Austrian Alps.Despite missing out on his first final, the 107th-ranked Melzer will enter the top 100 for the first time when rankings are updated after the weekend.Earlier Friday, Basilashvili became the first tennis player from Georgia to reach an ATP final after beating Dusan Lajovic of Serbia 6-3, 6-1.I think its something special, the 123rd-ranked Basilashvili said. I worked for this very hard. I started aggressively and I just played great.Playing in his maiden semifinal, Basilashvili took control of the match after he broke Lajovic while leading 4-3 in the opening set. Dominating with strong groundstrokes, Basilashvili broke his opponents serve three more times and won nine of the last 10 games to close out the win.The 83rd-ranked Lajovic, who was seeded sixth, went 0-2 in semifinals this season.

Now, with Game 6 set for Fenway Park and an 8:07 p.m. ET first pitch, the Detroit Tigers face the unenviable task of having to beat the Boston Red Sox twice, on the road, to advance to the World Series. Womens Ravens Jerseys . -- Playing time has been limited for Maxim Tissot this season, so the Montreal Impact defender made the most of his first scoring opportunity on Saturday. INDEPENDENCE, Ohio -- Cleveland Cavaliers coach Tyronn Lue called J.R. Smiths in-game hug with a Milwaukee Bucks bench player -- leading to a wide-open score for the opposition -- an embarrassing moment and met with the Cavs guard to address the mental lapse Wednesday.It was an embarrassing moment, Lue said. Me and J.R. talked about it. Were just going to move forward. We had a discussion about it, he felt embarrassed about it. It was an embarrassing play. We talked about it. Were moving on.Smith greeted Bucks reserve Jason Terry on the baseline while Milwaukee was readying to inbound the ball late in the second half of their eventual 118-101 win over Cleveland on Tuesday. When Smith removed himself from the play, Milwaukees Matthew Dellavedova zipped a pass to Tony Snell who converted an uncontested dunk.Lue was sure to clarify he believed there was nothing intentional behind Smiths blunder, adding there was no negative motive for Smith to expose the Cavs defense like that.Smith said the Cavs also addressed the mistake as a team within the larger context of complacency settling in for the defending champs despite their sterling 13-3 record.Obviously we both know it wasnt intentional, but it was just a lack of focus, Smith said after practice Wednesday. One of the multiple things that compounded onto the loss was just as a team we havent been as focused as we previously were. Winning and being who we are has a lot to do with that, but weve just got to overcome that and be better as a whole. It starts as individuals and then we can collectively become a group and team and have that mindset.Lue also took issue with Smiths explanation for the play Tuesday night, claiming he had no recollection of the mistake while wearing a ski mask-style hood covering his face during his interview with reporters.It wasnt right, Lue said. I talked to him about that also. Theres no need for that. Just address the media in the right way, move on. We got our butts kicked (Tuesday) night. Give Milwaukee credit, they came out, they attacked us, they beat us. Now weve got to move on.Smith said his postgame act was a joke gone wrong.I said it more in a joking manner because you can see what happened, Smith said. Obviously, I wasnt paying attention. For me to just sit there and tell you I wasnt paying attention makes it plain and boring somewhat, especially when youre asking a question you already know the answer to. But at the same time, I still have to give that boring answer, for whatever reason.Making matters worse, Smith is mired in terrible shooting slump, averaging just 3.0 points in his last three games while shooting a combined 3-for-29 (10.3 percennt).ddddddddddddIve had mental errors before while not shooting the ball well and while shooting the ball well, and vice versa, Smith said. So I cant compound one on top of the other. Its just a matter of getting out of the groove of shooting bad and just staying more locked in.This is the first ... mental error that Ive had since I was here (in Cleveland). I mean, I think thats just one of the reasons why its so big because it hasnt been seen yet here. And on top of not shooting the ball well. I mean, Ive gone on streaks where I havent shot the ball well here, but I was always making up for it in other areas so it wasnt as big. Its just a part of the game. I got to do better with it.Outside of a two-game suspension during the 2015 playoffs for a hit on Bostons Jae Crowder, Smith has been mostly a model teammate since the Cavs acquired him from the New York Knicks in a trade during the 2014-15 season.?He led the Cavs in 3-pointers each of the last two seasons, was dubbed the teams best defender by Lue and earned a four-year, $57 million extension from Cleveland in the offseason.Smith said Lue wants to rely on him and other role players to shoulder more of the load and take the pressure off the Cavs superstar trio in LeBron James, Kyrie Irving and Kevin Love to produce.For me, it was just trying to get a better understanding of why weve become complacent, Smith said of his conversation with his coach. Weve both come up with winning has a lot to do with that. Being who we are and having the players we have on the team has a lot to do with that, but weve got to understand for guys like myself, we cant be the Bron-Kevin-Ky who can have that mindset.We have to be those guys -- the worker ants. We have to put that work in even more and have their back even more and have their back even more. I think the last couple games ... I mean, obviously theyre going to score the majority of our points, but theyve done even more than what theyre accustomed to. So we have to do a better job of helping them out from a playing side as well as a serious side as well.Lue was in a noticeably better mood Wednesday than he was Tuesday, beginning his media session by greeting every reporter individually and apologizing for using a curse word during his postgame remarks in Milwaukee.Today was great, Lue said of practice. Today was great. I thought the guys were really locked in.Cleveland hosts the?LA Clippers?on Thursday before heading to Chicago for the second night of a back-to-back on Friday against?Dwyane Wade and the?Bulls.
