    DALLAS (AP) — Desmond Bane scored a career-high 29 points, and the Memphis Grizzlies held on to beat the Dallas Mavericks 97-90 on Saturday night in their first game since setting an NBA record with a 73-point victory. Tyus Jones had 16 points and seven assists for the Grizzlies, who haven’t trailed at all while going 4-0 since star guard and leading scorer Ja Morant was sidelined with a left knee sprain. The Mavericks dropped to 0-4 this season without young sensation Luka Doncic. They were also missing his European sidekick, Kristaps Porzingis, and lost their fourth consecutive game without their top two scorers going back to last season. Dallas had little punch offensively until it was too late in a fourth consecutive home loss, shooting 34% in their second game since setting a franchise record at 68.7% in a 32-point victory at New Orleans. Tim Hardaway Jr. scored 20 of his 29 points in the fourth quarter for the Mavericks, who cut a 15-point deficit to five in the final five minutes but couldn’t get closer. Steven...
    New building or old, Kansas looked right at home in the Big Apple again. Christian Braun had a career-high 31 points, Ochai Agbaji scored 23 and the No. 8 Jayhawks emphatically turned back a second-half charge to beat St. John's 95-75 on Friday night in the first basketball game at UBS Arena. Senior forward David McCormack, off to a slow start this season, was a force inside with 15 points and 13 rebounds for the Jayhawks (6-1), who have bounced back from a one-point loss to Dayton last week with consecutive double-digit wins. "It's really important," Agbaji said. "These preseason games mean a lot. Kind of practicing for conference road games, and when we have rough stretches like that.

    Getty Anthony Davis of the LA Lakers coaches teammate Talen Horton-Tucker during a game against the Sacramento Kings. The Los Angeles Lakers may need a spark to help turn around their season and the team’s most attractive trade chip is Talen Horton-Tucker. The Lakers have been reluctant to deal the promising swingman, but the team’s options for a shakeup are limited given their current roster. LeBron James, Anthony Davis and Russell Westbrook are all unlikely to be traded by February’s deadline. The Lakers will have more opportunities open up on December 15 when players like Horton-Tucker who signed new deals last offseason are eligible to be traded. Sports Illustrated’s Alex Kirschenbaum suggested three potential deals centered around Horton-Tucker that the Lakers could consider. One proposed deal that has some level of intrigue is acquiring sharpshooter Doug McDermott from the Spurs. The hypothetical deal has the Lakers sending Horton-Tucker, Kent Bazemore, Malik Monk and a 2023 second-round pick for McDermott. “McDermott, 29, is a switchy tweener forward who continues to grow as an off-ball cutter,” Kirschenbaum...
    Getty Baltimore Ravens quarterback Lamar Jackson attempts a pass against the Cleveland Browns in November 2021. Baltimore Ravens superstar quarterback Lamar Jackson may have just endured the worst three-week stretch of his career, but Sports Illustrated’s Albert Breer doesn’t think it’ll affect his ongoing contract extension negotiations with the Ravens. “I think the Ravens will pay him after the season and pay him near the top of the quarterback market, and I think Jackson’s earned it,” wrote Breer on December 1, acknowledging but ultimately dismissing concerns about Jackson’s durability. Jackson regularly shoulders a gargantuan load for the Ravens offense as the NFL’s premier dual-threat quarterback, gaining over three-fourths of their total offensive yards this season, despite missing a Week 11 game with the Chicago Bears due to illness. He’s currently averaging 34.1 passing attempts and 12.3 rushing attempts per game this season, putting him on pace for career-highs in both categories, which, according to Breer, is “an unheard-of workload for a quarterback.” That has sparked concerns about Jackson’s “sustainability,” this season, most recently after Baltimore’s November 7 victory over...

    This is the moment armed robbers nonchalantly walked into a restaurant in California and stole a woman's watch at gunpoint. The shocking footage is from a Hot Wings Café on Melrose Avenue in Los Angeles, and shows a young couple tucking into a meal at a small table when a pair of masked men descend on them. One of the men struts up to the table brandishing a pistol, while the other circles behind the couple and leans over the male victim's shoulder, appearing to whisper something in his ear. He promptly takes off his watch and hands it over to the armed man, before his female companion follows suit. The robbery lasted all of 10 seconds and was conducted with total calm, as though the group were sharing a simple conversation in a crowded restaurant. The incident, which took place on October 16 according to the LAPD, came to light in the wake of last week's Black Friday lootings, in which businesses and individuals across the state were robbed.   The restaurant owner's son said the bandits were 'in and...

    ESTERO, Fla. (AP) — Ashley Joens had 23 points including a critical 3-pointer late, Lexi Donarski also scored 23 points and No. 13 Iowa State blew most of a 21-point lead before beating Massachussets 76-71 on Sunday night to win the Gulf Coast Showcase.

Averaging 22.2 points over the past 10 games, he sat out because of illness. Before the game, coach Erik Spoelstra said Herro was “under the weather,” and would be a game-time decision.

You’re going to have basically your entire rotation putting their fingerprints on a game to impact the win and that’s what you saw tonight. Tyler was out so different guys had to step up.” DeMar DeRozan led...

    BACK-TO-BACK wins have given Norwich hope for Premier League survival - but they could not break the deadline against a turgid Wolves side. Both teams exchanged chances in an even first period - Moutinho fired straight at Krul before Max Aarons forced a great save from Jose Sa at the opposite end. 4Teemu Pukki had the best chance of the game but was unable to slide it past Jose SaCredit: Getty 4Max Aarons is left frustrated as a chance goes begging for NorwichCredit: Getty Mathias Norman went down injured for Norwich and the midfield dynamo had to be substituted before the break.

    SAN FRANCISCO — The first half of this Thanksgiving eve game saw, arguably, one of the worst first half performances by the Warriors this year. But these Warriors have no problem overcome their worst. Led by Juan Toscano-Anderson and Jordan Poole, the Warriors overcame a 19-point deficit to beat the Philadelphia 76ers 116-96, a 20-point victory. That half was dragged down primarily by a lethargic and disjointed first quarter in which the Warriors put up 23 points shooting 8-of-19 (42%) from the field and 3-of-9 from three. Worsening Golden State’s lethargy was a suffocating Philadelphia defense that switched well to drown the Warriors’ off ball movement. Curry finished the half 5-of-10, 3-of-7 from three point land as Danny Green and the Sixers kept him close. The NBA’s top defense looked porous against the Sixers, who were attacking off the dribble and drawing plenty of touch fouls. Draymond Green landed in foul trouble with four personal fouls before the half. Midway through the second quarter, the Warriors were down 19 points — the largest deficit of the...

    Getty Golden State Warriors guards Stephen Curry and Klay Thompson defend Houston Rockets guard James Harden during a playoff game in 2016. Though he’ll have to wait a bit longer until the NBA’s all-time three-point crown is his, everybody knows that Golden State Warriors star Stephen Curry is already the best shooter in league history. It’s only a matter of time before Curry passes Hall-of-Famer Ray Allen for the all-time mark, but apparently Steph is a modest guy, and thinks there’s actually a chance for another player to break his soon-to-be new record. No. 30’s recent conversation with the guy who Allen passed on the all-time three-point list — Reggie Miller — aired on NBA TV’s new program “Art of the Three” on Tuesday.

    This Alabama team is still winning football games but that aura of seemingly invincibility that normally looms over the Crimson Tide is long gone. Last year Alabama made it look so easy in its season-long romp to the national championship, being truly challenged only once. That was in the Southeastern Conference championship game against Florida. The third-ranked Crimson Tide have been beaten once this season — a three-point loss at No. 14 Texas A&M — and three Alabama’s 10 wins have come by a touchdown or less entering Saturday’s visit to rival Auburn. Alabama coach Nick Saban has insisted the issues preventing the Tide from putting teams away so easily are fixable, though they’re still surfacing deep into the season. “You always have to respect the competitive character of the players, whether they have to make stops at the end of the game or we have to move the ball at the end of the game, whether it’s take the air out of it or score,” Saban said Monday. “So these experiences are always beneficial, I think, and certainly, we’ve...
    Getty Jimmy Butler #22 of the Miami Heat looks on during the first half of a game against the Los Angeles Lakers at Staples Center on November 10, 2021 in Los Angeles, California. With games against the Detroit Pistons and the Minnesota Timberwolvesand then their big showdown against the Chicago Bulls  on the horizon for the the Miami Heat, the ailments of the recent past come to haunt the club. Their loss to the Washington Wizards brought up a problem that the team had during the previous three seasons when they would go into the the fourth period of games. For the most part, a Heat game with a double-digit lead would be more of a preoccupying sign than it was if they had a slight lead or deficit in those encounters. One can’t truly point the finger as to why this happens, yet there are many reasons that do contribute to seeing a collapse like this on various occasions.

    JACKSONVILLE, Fla. (AP) — Kobe Brown scored 19 of his 24 points after halftime, hitting a go-ahead 3-pointer with 1:29 left in overtime as Missouri rallied to defeat SMU 80-75 at the Jacksonville Classic on Sunday night. SMU (3-2) looked to have the game in hand after Emmanuel Bandoumel hit two 3-pointers to cap an 18-0 run to close out the first half, giving the Mustangs a 29-18 lead.

DaJuan Gordon sent the game to OT with a three-point play — on an assist from Brown — with 29 seconds left.

    WEST LAFAYETTE, Ind. (AP) — Trevion Williams had 20 points and 13 rebounds and Zach Edey added 18 points and 12 rebounds to help No. 6 Purdue rout Wright State 96-52 on Tuesday night. Williams, a preseason All-American who is coming off the bench, scored his 1,000th career point and grabbed his 650th career rebound. He’s the 16th player in school history to achieve both feats.

Wright State (1-2) was led by Trey Calvin with 21 points and Tanner Holden with 17. But the defending Horizon League regular-season champs never had a chance against Purdue’s dominant big men.

    (CNN)It seems every week NBA superstar Steph Curry is making history. Earlier this week, he overtook Wilt Chamberlain to become the oldest player to record 50 points and 10 assists in a game. And on Friday night, the 33-year-old passed basketball great Ray Allen for the most three-pointers scored in all NBA games, including playoffs, in NBA history. Curry connected with nine of his 17 three-point attempts in the Golden State Warriors' 119-93 win over the Chicago Bulls, taking his tally in regular season and playoff games to 3,366, surpassing Allen's total of 3,358. He had come into the game just one behind two-time NBA champion Allen and equaled his record within the first few minutes of the game.

Kemba Walker broke out of his shooting slump against his former team, scoring 26 points on 9-of-19 shooting for the Knicks, who have lost five of seven. Walker, the Hornets’ all-time leading scorer, appeared he was going to turn back the clock and have yet another memorable night at the Spectrum Center after pouring in 17 points in the first quarter on four 3-pointers as the Knicks jumped to a 34-18 lead. But the Hornets battled all the way back and took control late in the fourth quarter behind a windmill...
    Getty Draymond Green The Golden State Warriors’ Draymond Green is never one to mince words, so whether he’s dishing a compliment or insult, it’s coming from the heart. Green was recently asked about Chicago Bulls star and fellow Olympian Zach LaVine. As usual, Green didn’t hold back. He dropped nothing but praise for LaVine as the two Olympians prepare to square off on Friday night when the Bulls begin their west coast road trip against the 10-1 Golden State Warriors. Marcus Thompson II and Darnell Mayberry of the Athletic had an informative report about the friendship between LaVine and Green which was born in Tokyo at the Olympics. According to the report, Green said: When you look at a guy as talented as Zach LaVine, the reality is nobody has taught him how to be Zach LaVine and not treated as this young kid who’s up and coming in the league who’s trying to figure it out.

    Getty Miami Heat guard Duncan Robinson reacts to a foul call during a game against the Los Angeles Lakers. Since the early days of his NBA career, Miami Heat wing Duncan Robinson has been one of the league’s best three-point snipers. Over the last four seasons, only 10 players have knocked down more triples than Robinson. Among those who hit 500 or more, only Stephen Curry and Joe Harris topped his conversion rate of 41.4%. This season, though, the Michigan product has been pretty pedestrian from deep. Through 12 games in 2021-22, Robinson is connecting on just 31.2% of his three-point shots.

For a player that has taken 86.6% of his shots from behind the arc over his career, that’s a major problem.

    NEW YORK (AP) — Ochai Agbaji scored a career-high 29 points and No. 3 Kansas beat Michigan State 87-74 on Tuesday night in the Champions Classic at Madison Square Garden on the opening night of college basketball. Remy Martin added 15 points and David McCormack had 10 for the Jayhawks, who returned four starters from last season’s squad that lost to USC in the second round of the NCAA Tournament. The Jayhawks were missing forward Jalen Wilson, who was suspended last week for the first three regular-season games after he was arrested on suspicion of drunken driving last month. Kansas led by seven at the half before Michigan State cut it to 48-45. After a timeout, Agbaji caught an alley-oop for a dunk and then stole the ball on the other end before finishing that possession with another dunk to restore the seven-point lead. The Jayhawks were up 56-48 when Michigan State coach Tom Izzo was called for a technical foul with 13:01 left. Izzo was upset when no foul was called on the previous play after Tyson Walker drove...
    (CNN)Steph Curry recorded 50 points and 10 assists for the first time in his career, overtaking Wilt Chamberlain as the oldest player in NBA history to do so, as the Golden State Warriors continued their blistering start to the season with a 127-113 victory over the Atlanta Hawks on Monday.The 33-year-old stuffed the rest of his stat sheet with seven rebounds, three steals and a block to help pull Golden State out of a 15-point deficit in the second quarter and guide his team to a league best 9-1 record.Curry had been unusually quiet by his own future Hall of Fame standards recently, recording 20 points or fewer in his previous four outings. However, his 50-point explosion -- the 10th 50-point game of his career -- brought on renewed chants of "MVP! MVP!" from fans inside Golden State's Chase Center."That was just a stunning performance by Steph," head coach Steve Kerr told reporters. "He was amazing. "I want to say I've never seen anything like it but I've been watching it for seven years, so I have seen something like...

    KABUL (AP) — In Kabul’s main children’s hospital, 2½-year-old Guldana is sitting up in her bed, but she’s too exhausted to even open her eyes. Her tiny body is wrapped in a blanket, only her emaciated face showing. She’s one of a growing number of near-starving children who are brought every day to the India Gandhi Children’s Hospital in the Afghan capital. Hunger is increasing dramatically in Afghanistan, fueled by an economic crisis that has only gotten worse since the Taliban seized power in the country nearly three months ago. Guldana’s father, Jinnat Gul, said he can hardly afford to feed her and his other five children. He used to work going house to house collecting scrap goods and selling them. But for the past three months, work has dried up and he has hardly made any money. “Before, I had enough work, I could provide food. We could have meat one or two times a week,” he said. Now his family mainly gets by on boiled potatoes. He said sometimes he only has bread soaked in green...
    PRAGUE (AP) — The Czech Republic’s central bank has again sharply increased its key interest rate by a point and a quarter to 2.75%, to tackle soaring inflation amid the economy’s recovery from the coronavirus pandemic. Thursday’s surprising move was the biggest single hike of the rate since 1997 and the fourth straight increase since June. Analysts had mostly predicted a half-point or a three-quarter point increase. The central bank considers high inflation as a major threat. Inflation jumped to 4.9% in September, well above the bank’s 2% target. The last time the bank changed its rates was Sept 30, when it increased the key interest rate by three quarters of a point to 1.5% in an effort to tame inflation. The government protested, saying it would harm the economy. The Czech economy registered a 2.8% year-on-year growth in the third quarter, according to the country’s Statistics Office.

    Los Angeles Clippers star Paul George needed to cool himself down after hitting a three-pointer against the Minnesota Timberwolves. The Los Angeles Clippers just earned their second win of the season this past Monday against the Oklahoma City Thunder, thanks to a 32-point performance by Paul George. On Wednesday night, George was showing off his shooting abilities from behind the three-point line. At one point in the third quarter of Wednesday night’s game against the Minnesota Timberwolves, George hit a step-back 3-pointer to extend Los Angeles’ lead to 80-72. The Clippers star actually had to cool himself off, because he was on fire. Paul George has to cool down after being hot from the three-point lineGeorge was 4-for-8 from behind the arc on Wednesday night.

    Kendall Jenner’s Love Life: Musicians, Basketball Players, More Dow edges lower as traders await pivotal Fed decision From public squabbles to poor defense, everything has gone wrong for Boston to start the season. View the original article to see embedded media.BOSTON — The coach has called out the players, a player has called out the coach, teammates are publicly sniping and the team has been loudly booed in each of its three home games. Other than that, the Celtics season is off to a stellar start. What’s going on in Boston? If not for hapless Houston and a furious fourth quarter comeback in Charlotte, the Celtics could easily be winless to start the year. On Monday, the Bulls ripped off a 39-11 run in the fourth quarter, turning a 14-point deficit into a 14-point win. It was the first time since the mid-'50s that a team lost by 14 or more points after leading by 14-plus. In an interview with NBC Sports Boston on Tuesday, Brad Stevens, the ex-coach turned top exec, suggested that, from a “structural standpoint,” the...

    EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. (AP) — The Cincinnati Bengals were the talk of the NFL last week after going into Baltimore and beating the Ravens. One week later, the discussion has shifted dramatically again. Back to the Bungles? The Bengals followed up that 41-17 win over the AFC North-rival Ravens by blowing a 11-point fourth-quarter lead and losing to the New York Jets 34-31 on Sunday. The loss to the previously one-win Jets dropped the Bengals to 5-3 on the season. It was the third consecutive road game for Cincinnati, and with a home game against Cleveland up next, the Bengals failed to beat a team they were a double-digit favorite to handle. Bengals coach Zac Taylor was wary of a letdown going into the game. “This was always in the back of your mind coming off a win against Baltimore,” Taylor said. “We spent a lot of time making sure that we were focused because I was looking for any warning signs that this would appear during the week and I didn’t see any.” The Bengals’ offense put...
    CHICAGO (AP) — Jimmy Garoppolo threw for 322 yards and ran for two touchdowns, and the San Francisco 49ers beat the short-handed Chicago Bears 33-22 Sunday to snap a four-game losing streak. Garoppolo led three touchdown drives in the second half and another possession that ended with a field goal. He scored from the 2 in the third quarter and ran it in from the 5 in the fourth to make it 30-22. Deebo Samuel had six catches for 171 yards. That gave him 819 through seven games, breaking Hall of Famer Jerry Rice’s club record of 781 set in 1986. Elijah Mitchell carried 18 times for 137 yards and a touchdown, helping San Francisco (3-4) win for the first time since beating both Detroit and Philadelphia on the road to start the season. Chicago (3-5) was looking for a reprieve coming off back-to-back losses to Aaron Rodgers and Green Bay and Tom Brady and Tampa Bay. But the Bears faltered in the second half against Garoppolo, who is from nearby Arlington Heights and played college ball at Eastern Illinois....
    3 keys to victory for the Knicks against a struggling Pelicans team Alexander Wilson October 30, 2021 Share on facebook Facebook Share on twitter Twitter Share on reddit Reddit The New York Knicks are coming off a slim victory over the Chicago Bulls, in which they dragged the game out to the final seconds after failing to score a single point in the last three minutes. Thanks to great defense from RJ Barrett on Pelican’s free-agent acquisition, DeMar DeRozan, who tossed up an airball to finish off the game, handing the Knicks their fourth win of the season. The Knicks have now overcome strong Boston Celtics, Philadelphia 76ers, and Chicago teams, proving they’ve taken a step forward this season. However, they are vulnerable against lesser squads, playing down to their opponents as they experienced against Orlando Magic. Next up on the docket is the New Orleans Pelicans, who currently sit 1–4 on the season and are coming off a tough defeat to the Atlanta Hawks. Three keys for the Knicks against the Pelicans:...
    Getty Derrick Rose goes for a basket against the Chicago Bulls. The New York Knicks rolled with Elfrid Payton at starting point guard for most of last season, something that didn’t bode well for them in the playoffs. In the offseason, they set out to make an upgrade there, and that’s exactly what they did. Kemba Walker is now the starting point guard with Derrick Rose backing him up, so the position can provide much more offense now. In fact, they are already set to surpass last year’s point guard position in a very important area. Through five games, where the Knicks sit 4-1, Walker and Rose have combined for 30 three pointers. To put that in perspective, the starting point guard for the Knicks hit 29 total last season. This is definitely a new Knicks team we’re looking at this year.New Point Guard, New Team Point Godsend: Kemba Walker and Derrick Rose are shooting a combined 30/53 (56.6%) from 3PT over the first five games.

    (CNN)The Memphis Grizzlies ended the Golden State Warriors' unbeaten start to the season with a 104-101 overtime win thanks in large part to another box office performance from Ja Morant.The No. 2 pick in the 2019 NBA draft outplayed his illustrious opposite number Stephen Curry late on and led his team with 30 points, seven rebounds and five assists in 42 minutes of action.Curry put up 36 points of his own, including a ludicrous 25-foot three-pointer off one leg, to go with seven rebounds and eight assists, but was unable to register a single point in the fourth quarter -- and then overtime -- for the third consecutive game, missing two huge three-point attempts down the stretch.Conversely, Morant excelled in the closing stages, shooting a deep three -- à la Curry -- over Draymond Green with just under four minutes to play and then pulled out a remarkable spin move and layup with 58 seconds remaining in overtime. Stephen Curry failed to score a single point in the fourth quarter or overtime."Starting out early, I feel like we didn't come...

    Getty LeBron James and Kawhi Leonard, when they both healthy The big question surrounding the L.A. Clippers this summer was how they’d fare this season without Kawhi Leonard, who is facing a long recovery from July ACL surgery and projects to be out until March at the earliest. Certainly, the Clippers would miss the presence of their 4-time All-NBA forward. But the optimistic view has been that the team still has enough firepower to remain afloat throughout the regular season and perhaps contend for a title if and when Leonard returns. That optimism, however, took a big ol’ punch to the nose on Wednesday as the Clippers, coming off their first victory of the season, were embarrassed on their home floor by the Cleveland Cavaliers, losing 92-79 and dropping to 1-3 on the season. One play, in particular, was emblematic of the Clippers’ night. Early in the second quarter, with Cleveland already up 12, L.A. guard Luke Kennard made an errant pass in the lane that was easily picked off by Cavs big man Lauri Markkanen, who quickly...
    Getty Boston Celtics forward Jaylen Brown smiles during a preseason game. In the wake of the Boston Celtics‘ overtime thriller against the Charlotte Hornets on Monday, Jaylen Brown lamented the heavy workload. “These overtime games are killing me,” he joked after the 140-129 win over LaMelo Ball and company. Don’t let him fool you, though. Brown just did some killing of his own, too. With 1:21 left in the extra period and the Celtics clinging to a three-point lead, a loose ball found its way to the three-point line, where Jayson Tatum collected it and was off to the races. Miles Bridges was able to get back on the fast break, but Tatum looped the ball to Brown who took the on the plus-defender at the rim. At that point, Brown destroyed Bridges and the rim with a hammer dunk, igniting his bench and even bringing some of the fans at the Spectrum Center to their feet. “Miles, obviously, is one of the better athletes in the league, so I knew that if I tried to lay it...
