Sean Payton, Drew Brees pick up 117th regular-season win together
12/17/2018 11:26pm

CHARLOTTE, N.C. -- Sean Payton and Drew Brees made some more NFL history on Monday night. And they have their defense to thank for it. Payton and Brees won their 117th regular-season game together when the New Orleans Saints survived a 12-9 slugfest with the rival Carolina Panthers-- passing Don Shula and Dan Marino for second place among coach/QB combos during the Super Bowl era. They trail only Bill Belichick and Tom Brady, who have a whopping 205 regular-season wins together. The Saints 12-2 now need just one more victory to clinch the No. 1 seed in the NFC playoffs, which would be huge considering how much their offense has struggled away from home over the past three weeks. Brees threw for just 203 yards with zero touchdowns and an interception Monday night. He also had a two-point conversion pass attempt intercepted and returned for a Panthers two-point play instead early in the fourth quarter. And the Saints...

Maryland surprises MSU, now looks to upset Gonzaga
12/18/2018 5:36am

Gary Williams and his Maryland Terrapins already took down one Top 10 team. Now, they get a shot at another. Greivis Vasquez and Dave Neal each scored 17 points Thursday night and unranked Maryland hustled its way to an 80-62 upset of No. 5 Michigan State in the opening round of the Old Spice Classic at Lake Buena Vista, Fla. Thats as good as any team Ive coached has played with a lead, Williams said. We didnt take bad shots, didnt lose focus. Next up for the Terrapins on Friday is another test against a touted team. They play No. 9 Gonzaga, which beat Oklahoma State 83-71. Maryland 4-0 is one of two teams in the tournament that didnt receive a vote in this weeks AP poll. Four squads are ranked, topped by Michigan State 2-1. Coach told us in the locker room, Lets go out and win this tournament, Vasquez said. That fired us up. In other Top 25 games Thursday, it was: No. 12 Tennessee 78, Siena 64 No. 14 Arizona State 84, Charlotte 56 No. 19 Wake...

James Harden doesn't deny he got away with travel late vs. Jazz
12/18/2018 12:06am

HOUSTON -- When legally executed, James Hardens step-back jumper is one of the leagues most lethal weapons and heavily debated topics, as many opponents take umbrage with the allowance of a gather step and insist the reigning NBA MVPs go-to move should be ruled a travel on a regular basis. The move Harden made in the final minute of the Houston Rockets 102-97 win over the Utah Jazz on Monday didnt fall into that category. It was simply a missed travel at a critical time, leading to Hardens getting three free throws in a one-possession game with 54.6 seconds remaining. Harden shuffled to his right for two extra steps on the step-back to get behind the 3-point line before being fouled by Jazz guard Ricky Rubio. You watch the play What do you think Rubio said when asked if he thought Harden traveled, not wanting to get fined for criticizing officiating. Im not going to answer, but I think 100 percent of the people...

With demand down, Boston might be Craig Kimbrel's best bet
12/18/2018 5:36am

Considering Craig Kimbrels excellence in the first nine seasons of his career, there appears to be a pretty good chance he will deliver an induction speech at Cooperstown. The strategic stature of starting pitchers has slowly diminished, with relievers assuming the responsibility left behind, and the bullpen guys are more readily making the Hall of Fame: Trevor Hoffman last summer, Lee Smith last week, Mariano Rivera next month. And Kimbrel has been one of the most dominant relievers of his time, striking out 868 of the 2,087 batters he has faced on his way to 333 career saves, the most for any active pitcher. If the right-hander averaged just 30 saves a year over the next six seasons, hed become the third reliever in history to accumulate 500 saves, following Hoffman and Rivera. But that long pre-eminence may aid his free agency only marginally this winter, when Kimbrel is pushing upstream against the strong forces of supply and demand. It may...
