    The Golden State Warriors are experiencing a resurgence with Stephen Curry, who appears to be healthy and in MVP form, along with Draymond Green and a whole host of role players who have gone above and beyond so far. Warriors coach Steve Kerr, who has gone through the trials and tribulations with the team over the last few seasons, told The Athletic in an interview published Thursday the desire to win championships is still as hot as ever.

    Getty Klay Thompson takes a shot during a Golden State Warriors practice. After two years away from the court, Klay Thompson hasn’t lost his killer touch. The Golden State Warriors star is growing ever-closer to his return to the NBA after a pair of back-to-back season-ending injuries, and has been honing his game with the G League Santa Cruz Warriors. Thompson flashed some of his skills in a scrimmage and, while it might have not been the pressure of a Game 6, the Splash Brother showed that his game looks just as good as ever.

    After four consecutive losses going into the bye week, Ron Rivera recalculated how Washington could win games. The recipe involved running the ball, controlling the clock and shortening games. The result has been a three-game winning streak to move into the final playoff position in the NFC at 5-6. A strong running game led by second-year back Antonio Gibson has been at the heart of it. Washington outrushed the Seattle Seahawks 152 yards to 34 in beating them 17-15 on Monday night. “It’s interesting because if you go back and you look at the statistics of who wins the Super Bowl and how do they win it, it all points to the yards rushing,” Rivera said. “There is a physicality and mentality to it. If you can throw the ball well and yet at the same time still be able to keep that run game going, I think if you come up against a team that all they do is rely on the passing game, you have a chance, I think, to win and win big, and the reason being...
    The Miami Dolphins’ secondary has gotten much of the praise for the way the defense has played during their four-game winning streak — and rightfully so, with the game-changing plays cornerback Xavien Howard and safety Jevon Holland, among others, have made — but much of the credit should go to the front seven, as well. In this lights-out stretch for the defense in wins against the Houston Texans, Baltimore Ravens, New York Jets and Carolina Panthers, the Dolphins have begun turning near sacks into actual sacks, batted down balls at the line of scrimmage when not getting to the quarterback and have been stout against the run. To start with the pass rush, 16 of the Dolphins’ 28 sacks have come in the past four games. “A big part is finishing,” said Dolphins defensive line coach Austin Clark of what the pass rushers have done better in this stretch. “We missed quite a few earlier in the year in different games where they’re right there and we just missed a sack or [the quarterback was] able to...
    Getty Leonard Fournette's game-winning touchdown has been a source of debate. Debate lingers on whether Tampa Bay Buccaneers running back Leonard Fournette should have scored a game-winning touchdown in a 38-31 win at Indianapolis. Fournette and head coach Bruce Arians expressed disagreement on the play following the Sunday, Nov. 28, victory. It all spawned from Isaiah Rodgers’ 72-yard kick-off return for the Colts after the touchdown. Rodger’s return set the Colts up at the 32-yard line with 10 seconds left before cornerback Pierre Desir sealed a victory for the Bucs. Arians doubted in hindsight that Fournette taking it 28 yards to the end zone was the best call. “I think if well all had a do-over, we would have told Lenny to fall down at the two (yard line) and not give them the kick off return,” Arians said.

    Let’s play the “what if game” for one minute with the hopes that it might provide some clarity on the 2021 Miami Dolphins season, and the lessons we should be taking from it. If the resurgent Dolphins had received the calls and bounces they didn’t get during their seven-game losing streak, and it had resulted in three more wins, would our assessment of the team, coaches, front office and roster be different? If Will Fuller had gotten a pass interference call in the end zone, and Miami scored at the 1-yard line, turning an overtime loss to the Las Vegas Raiders into an overtime win, would you view this team the same? If Urban Meyer hadn’t outsmarted Miami’s entire coaching staff, putting the Jacksonville Jaguars in position to kick the game-winning field goal instead of forcing overtime, and Miami somehow managed to pull off a win, would you view these coaches more favorably? If Kyle Pitts hadn’t put on a superhero cape and delivered two big receptions in the game-winning drive that propelled the Falcons to...
    The defending champions are beginning to look the part again. It wasn’t long ago that the Milwaukee Bucks were languishing under .500, but after a seven-game winning streak, they’ve moved back toward the top of the Eastern Conference standings. Milwaukee’s run has been overshadowed a bit by Phoenix’s 16-game winning streak and Golden State’s 18-2 start to the season. Now, the Bucks — and their conference finals opponents, the Atlanta Hawks — are showing signs that they’ve shaken off their early struggles. “At the start of this season, going through some trying times, I think we were all just happy it was at the beginning of the season,” guard Jrue Holiday said. “We know how this league goes, how the games go. It’s always ebbs and flows. We know that we can make a run at any time.” The Bucks haven’t lost a game when Holiday, Giannis Antetokounmpo and Khris Middleton have all played. Holiday missed about two weeks early in the season with a sprained ankle, and when he returned, Milwaukee blew a 21-point lead in a Nov. 5...

    Getty LA Lakers big man Anthony Davis reacts during a game against the Detroit Pistons. The Los Angeles Lakers got back to winning on Sunday with a 110-106 victory over Cade Cunningham and the Detroit Pistons. It was a big win for the Lakers, who were still reeling from their triple-overtime loss to the Sacramento Kings on November 26. Big man Anthony Davis clearly isn’t ready to hang his hat on the one victory, though. If somebody were to ask him, he’d likely say that the team’s latest W is just step one of a plan to rewrite the narrative of a Lakers season which, to this point, has left fans to wonder what Rob Pelinka and “LeGM” have signed them up for. After the Kings game, the eight-time NBA All-Star made it clear that he has big goals for the Lakers’ immediate future. And when we say big, we mean really big. “We gotta keep fighting. You know, 10-11, I mean, we could go on a 10-game winning streak, 12-game winning streak, now the narrative is different,”...

(AP) — Chris Driedger made 33 saves against his former team, helping the Seattle Kraken defeat Florida 4-1 on Saturday night to deny the Panthers what would have been a record-setting 12th consecutive home win to start the season. Jordan Eberle scored twice in his 800th game, Ryan Donato and Jamie Oleksiak added goals and Joonas Donskoi had two assists for the Kraken, who were facing the Panthers for the first time. Patric Hornqvist had the goal for Florida, and Spencer Knight stopped 23 shots for the Panthers. Florida was bidding to become the first team in NHL history to start 12-0-0 at home; the Panthers will merely have to share the record of 11 consecutive home-ice victories to open a season with Chicago, which had such a start in 1963-64. It was also Florida’s first home-ice regular-season loss since last season. The Panthers had won 15 consecutive games at home since last April, excluding playoffs, a span that included two coaches, two arena names and obviously two seasons. And there was some irony that Driedger — who...

    EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. (AP) — After a 2-5 start, the Philladelphia Eagles have gotten back in the playoff race by taking a page out of the New York Giants’ playbook from their heydays under Bill Parcells and Tom Coughlin. The Eagles (5-6) are pounding the rock and putting up points, which probably will be a problem for the Giants (3-7) Sunday when the teams meet at MetLife Stadium for the first of two contests in five weeks. While the Giants have shown the ability to stop the run at times, Joe Judge’s team does not put up points. Offensive coordinator Jason Garrett was fired on Tuesday after the team was held to season lows in points, total yards and time of possession in a 30-10 loss to Tampa Bay. The Eagles have scored 30-plus points five times this season. They have 870 yards rushing in the last four games, and have rushed for 200-plus yards in consecutive games for the first time since 1978. “We feel like we have a strength on offense as far as upfront and there’s...
    No. 23 Louisiana-Lafayette (10-1, 7-0 Sun Belt, CFP No. 22) vs. Louisiana-Monroe (4-7, 2-5), Saturday at 4 p.m. ET (ESPNU). Line: Louisiana-Lafayette by 21 1/2, according to FanDuel Sportsbook. Series record: Louisiana-Lafayette leads 30-25. WHAT’S AT STAKE? Louisiana-Lafayette has already clinched a home berth in the Sun Belt Conference title game but needs to win to remain in the national rankings, go unbeaten in Sun Belt play for the first time and to optimize bowl possibilities. It’s a rivalry game for Louisiana-Monroe, which is no longer bowl eligible.

    DETROIT (AP) — Cairo Santos made a 28-yard game-ending field goal to give the Chicago Bears a 16-14 win over the Detroit Lions on Thursday. The Bears (4-7) ended a five-game losing streak under embattled coach Matt Nagy, who was answering questions about his job status less than 48 hours before kickoff. READ MORE: Chicago Reaches Goal Of 77% First-Dose COVID-19 Vaccine Coverage A Month EarlyThe Lions (0-10-1) made many mistakes, early and late, to extend their skid to 15 games going back to their most recent win nearly a year ago in Chicago.

Dalton converted a third-and-5 with a 13-yard pass to Damiere Byrd to get the Bears to midfield. Detroit later helped out, giving them 5 yards on a penalty for calling consecutive timeouts without a play in between. On the next snap, Dalton converted third-and-4 with a 7-yard pass to Byrd. With only one timeout left, which first-year coach Dan Campbell...
    The Detroit Lions’ defensive breakdowns and a bad penalty at the end of their game against the Chicago Bears on Thanksgiving may have cost the team a better chance at getting their first win of the season. On third down, with the Bears inching toward the goal line, the Lions were penalized for calling back-to-back timeouts as they had trouble with too many men being on the field. The timeout penalty allowed Andy Dalton to convert the first down and give Cairo Santos an easier try for the game-winning field goal. The Lions were penalized for calling back-to-back timeouts with about 1:54 remaining in the game.

    by Robert Spitzer, State University of New York College at Cortland No observer of contemporary gun politics could fail to notice a jarring disconnect between the two very different trajectories of the gun rights movement today. On the one hand, more states are allowing Americans to carry weapons in public without permits, and the gun-rights movement could be on the verge of a major Supreme Court victory. On the other, the National Rifle Association, which advocates on behalf of gun owners, faces an existential crisis that's mostly due to the NRA's own missteps. As a political scientist who has studied gun politics and policy for over 30 years, I'm confident that there is no precedent for this contradictory situation. Moreover, there's no reason to believe that the NRA's problems will influence how the courts treat gun-rights cases.2 very different lawsuits are pendingThe Supreme Court case, New York State Rifle and Pistol Association v. Bruen, challenges a state law that requires authorities to exercise discretion when issuing concealed-carry pistol permits. When justices heard oral arguments on Nov. 3, 2021,...

    FORT MYERS, Fla. (AP) — Meechie Johnson Jr. made a game-winning 3-pointer with 2.3 seconds left and Ohio State beat No. 21 Seton Hall 79-76 on Monday night in the Fort Myers Tip-Off.

    PHILADELPHIA (AP) — Smash-mouth football is the winning formula for the Philadelphia Eagles. The Eagles (5-6) have turned around their season by turning to the run and riding quarterback Jalen Hurts’ legs. Hurts ran for three scores and had 69 of Philadelphia’s 242 yards rushing in a 40-29 victory over the New Orleans Saints on Sunday. Unfazed by the Saints’ top-ranked run defense, which entered the game allowing just 72.9 yards rushing per game, the Eagles again relied on their offensive line to take control. They have 870 yards rushing in the past four games, including 200-plus yards in their three victories during that span. “We’re going to continue to attack, continue to play our game,” Hurts said. “I think identity is not ‘we’re a running team,’ ‘we’re a passing team,’ or ‘we’re a team that doesn’t give up big explosive plays.’ That’s not what identity is. Identity is a mentality, it’s an approach, it’s the detail you put in day in and day out throughout the week. It’s being physical, it’s wanting it, it’s effort. It’s all...
    Getty D'Andre Swift runs the ball for the Lions against the Browns in 2021. The Detroit Lions have begun to rely on D’Andre Swift a lot more in the second half of the season, and the running back proved again why he needs to continue to be fed for the team. Swift got more involved in the second half and ended up running for 136 total yards and 1 touchdown on the day, and for the second straight week, he went over 100 yards on the afternoon on the ground.

    Here’s what the Baltimore Sun sports staff had to say immediately after the Ravens’ 16-13 win over the Chicago Bears on Sunday afternoon at Soldier Field: Jonas Shaffer, reporter: The dominant narrative around the Ravens’ first half of the season was about how Lamar Jackson had turned into the NFL’s comeback kid. On Sunday, it was Tyler Huntley’s turn. The second-year quarterback overcame an unlucky late interception and an aggressive defense to deliver a win in his first career start. With the rest of a demanding second-half schedule, this was not a game the Ravens could lose, not with Justin Fields knocked out, not with so many key Bears players inactive. “Survive and advance” doesn’t usually apply in Week 11, but it did Sunday. Mike Preston, columnist: The Ravens can campaign on their resiliency, but when are they going to get better? Most of the same weaknesses keep showing up every week. We keep hearing about how the NFL, especially the AFC, is a week-to-week league, but a major key is to get hot by the end of...

    NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) — The end of the Tennessee Titans’ six-game winning streak comes down to a simple number: Five. Ryan Tannehill was intercepted a career-high four times, and the Titans lost the ball on a muffed punt for a season-high five turnovers Sunday in a 22-13 loss to the Houston Texans that snapped the longest active winning streak in the NFL. “You turn the ball over in this league, you’re going to lose,” Titans coach Mike Vrabel said. “Nobody wants to hear that, nobody believes that. But when you do that, it doesn’t matter what the record is. We had five turnovers. They had zero. You’re going to lose the game 99 percent of the time.” The Titans (8-3) also had other issues Sunday. They fell behind 19-0, leading them to go for it on fourth down four times. They turned it over on downs twice and cost a chance at another fourth-and-1 opportunity after a false start by left guard Rodger Saffold. Those mistakes were more than enough even when the Titans outgained Houston 420-190...
    Running back Devonta Freeman’s 3-yard touchdown run with 22 seconds remaining lifted the Lamar Jackson-less Ravens to a dramatic 16-13 win Sunday over the Chicago Bears, persevering despite a spate of injuries and more defensive breakdowns. Freeman’s end-zone plunge capped a five-play, 61-yard, 79-second drive led by quarterback Tyler Huntley, making his first career start in place of the ailing Jackson, sidelined again by an illness. It also marked the third lead change in the final four minutes of a game that had struggled for fireworks inside Soldier Field. A minute and a half earlier, Bears wide receiver Marquise Goodwin had caught a 49-yard touchdown pass from backup Bears quarterback Andy Dalton to give Chicago (3-7) what seemed like the game’s final lead, 13-9. Dalton’s completion on fourth-and-11 erased an advantage the Ravens had taken back just two minutes earlier with kicker Justin Tucker’s 46-yard field goal. Ravens outside linebacker Tyus Bowser sacked Dalton (11-for-22 for 201 yards and two touchdowns) before he could attempt a Hail Mary, keeping the 7-3 Ravens atop the AFC North as a daunting second-half...

    NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) — Ryan Tannehill fumbled and immediately dove toward the ground, trying to grab the ball back only to be beaten by his teammate, receiver A.J. Brown. With Derrick Henry and Julio Jones already on a lengthy injured reserve list, Tannehill’s Tennessee Titans teammates absolutely worry about their starting quarterback fighting for a loose ball even though they know he once played wide receiver. “He understands the game, and he knows how to protect himself,” left guard Rodger Saffold said Wednesday. “Sometimes it’s hard to trust that when he’s playing quarterback.” This season, Tannehill is doing whatever it takes to help the Titans win. He’s a big reason why Tennessee (8-2) sits atop the AFC with the NFL’s longest active winning streak at six straight even if his statistics don’t reflect all that he’s doing with Derrick Henry and Julio Jones among the 15 Titans currently on injured reserve. Tannehill’s been sacked 29 times through 10 games after being sacked only 24 times all last season. He also has had more interceptions with eight...
    Georgia football has been No. 1 in the CFP rankings without argument but will the Bulldogs still make the College Football Playoff without winning the SEC? The Georgia Bulldogs have, rightfully, been an unquestioned No. 1 team in the first three releases of the CFP rankings. As one of three undefeated teams and by far the most dominant in the group — in addition to playing in the vaunted SEC — Georgia football has been where they deserve. Unless something goes horribly awry, the belief would be that the Bulldogs are going to finish the regular season undefeated as their final two games are against Charleston Southern and Georgia Tech. That then would lead them into the SEC Championship Game where they will likely face off against the Alabama Crimson Tide. But that brings us to the million-dollar question that everyone is asking in Athens: If Georgia lost to Bama in the SEC Championship Game, would they still be in the College Football Playoff?Georgia football: Can Bulldogs make CFP if they don’t win the SEC?Obviously, the easiest path to the...
    SANTA CLARA — If the 49ers’ 31-10 win over the Los Angeles Rams Monday night looked familiar, that’s because it was familiar. Go back to 2019, the year they went to the Super Bowl. Or even last season when they beat the Rams twice. So maybe it wasn’t all that shocking that for all the 49ers’ issues, the mere sight of playing the Rams served as a defibrillator for the 2021 season. Make a couple of plays on defense. Get a lead. Run the ball early, often and late. Complete just enough passes for a semblance of balance. This is 49ers football, and for all the talk of finesse in their Super Bowl history, at their best the goal is to beat their opponent to the punch. That goes back to the Bill Walsh days, where he’d compare the 49ers’ style to boxing. When the 49ers were good under Jim Harbaugh they were physical. In Kyle Shanahan’s lone winning season as a head coach, they were physical. ESPN analyst Louis Riddick reminded me of that during...
    MINNEAPOLIS (AP) — With their window tightening for playoff contention, the Minnesota Vikings finally won a close game against a winning team by simply letting loose. By going for it instead of settling for the safer options of kicking and throwing deep to their star wide receivers, the Vikings delivered a signature victory that just might portend a more aggressive approach on offense down the stretch.

Zimmer kept the offense on the field on fourth down twice Sunday. From the 1-yard line late in the third quarter, Kirk Cousins connected with tight end Tyler Conklin for their second touchdown of the afternoon and a 20-17 lead. Then on fourth-and-2 from the Chargers 36, just before the 2-minute warning, Dalvin Cook went for 4 yards around the right edge on a toss sweep that allowed the Vikings to run out the clock....
    WASHINGTON (AP) — Garnet Hathaway scored his third goal in two games, Alex Ovechkin added two assists and the Washington Capitals spoiled Sidney Crosby’s return Sunday night, routing the Pittsburgh Penguins 6-1. Martin Fehervary, Daniel Sprong, Conor Sheary, Evgeny Kuznetsov and Tom Wilson also scored for Washington, which won its fourth straight game and pulled even with Carolina atop the Metropolitan Division. The Capitals also trail Florida by a point for the NHL lead. Jake Guentzel scored in the first period for the Penguins, who got Crosby and defenseman Brian Dumoulin back from the NHL’s COVID-19 protocol. Pittsburgh coach Mike Sullivan was also back from protocol, but his team fell behind early and then allowed second-period goals to two former Penguins. OILERS 5, BLUES 4 ST. LOUIS, Mo.

    CHARLOTTE — For once, Stephen Curry couldn’t hit the big shot. So happens, it came in front of his friends and family in his first game back in his hometown in two years. There was a no-look, over-the-head heave and a buzzer-beating 3-pointer, but neither highlight came when the Warriors needed it most in the fourth quarter. The Charlotte Hornets hung on to deal the Warriors their first loss in eight games, 106-102. Curry had the ball in his hands throughout the final quarter but could only connect on one of his eight attempts from the field. He finished with 24 points on 7-of-22 shooting, while Andrew Wiggins paced the Warriors with 24 points. Miles Bridges sank a hook, and Terry Rozier nailed a pair of free throws to seal the game in the final minute. LaMelo Ball landed on Curry’s leg on a rebound attempt late in the fourth quarter. While Curry stayed in the game, he didn’t hit another shot. Curry drew some of the loudest cheers of the night when he...

Let’s start with one thing that hasn’t been there every night: reliable goaltending. MacKenzie Blackwood merely played his third game of the 2021-22 NHL season on Thursday. If anyone needed a reminder of his potential impact: Blackwood pitched a 42-save shutout. The Devils haven’t gone pointless in Blackwood start yet (2-0-1). Blackwood wasn’t the only NHL goalie with a notable shutout on Thursday. Jonathan Quick kept the Kings hot with his 34-save goose egg. Zach Fucale only needed 21 saves for his.

    The Auburn Tigers are trying to find their way back to the end zone while Mississippi State just wants to make its field goals when needed. The 16th-ranked Tigers (6-3, 3-2 Southeastern Conference, No. 17 CFP) and Bulldogs meet Saturday at Jordan-Hare Stadium after suffering losses thanks partly to their failures in those endeavors. Mississippi State (5-4, 3-2) is coming off a 31-28 loss at Arkansas and trying again to become bowl eligible. In the last one, Nolan McCord’s potential game-tying field goal attempt from 40 yards in the final seconds sailed wide for the team’s third miss. Beating a third ranked team would be a nice way to secure that sixth win. “We just have got to keep getting better,” Leach said. “The worst of it is there’s several in our grasp that are a play away. One play away and we win the game. We can’t lose sight of that.” Auburn hasn’t scored a touchdown in six quarters, including a 20-3 loss at No. 11 Texas A&M. Quarterback Bo Nix was sacked four times and the offense...
