"I think we got back to our defensive fundamentals," said reserve point guard Fred VanVleet, who scored a team-high 19 points.

While some see the NFL letting the Oakland Raiders off easy with the Rooney Rule, there is a rumor they are pushing for them to sign Colin Kaepernick. The Oakland Raiders know who their head coach and starting quarterback will be in 2018. That would be Jon Gruden and Derek Carr. However, they might have a void at backup quarterback. Could the NFL be pushing for the Silver and Black to sign controversial free agent Colin Kaepernick this offseason? It*s Wednesday and this is the Black Hole Roll Call.

The NBA announced on Thursday that it is fining Durant for his postgame outburst at official James Williams, whom he accused of targeting him for a pair of technical fouls and ejection during Golden State*s win over the New York Knicks on Tuesday..The Browns have four picks in the top 35 of the 2018 NFL Draft, but the biggest question they have to answer is how to use the first one, in an effort to find the elusive franchise quarterback..The Warriors, whose average of 115.9 points per equates to 29 per quarter, failed to reach that mark in 10 games didn't reach 25 points in seven of the games.The sweetest-shooting team in the league at 51.0 percent from the field, the Warriors were below that standard eight times and below 40 percent three times..Now, the legend has, at the very least, played his last game for the Calgary Flames. So how did a relationship that started with so much promise end so abruptly? There*s no one answer, but rather a few driving factors that have led to Jagr*s imminent departure from Calgary.As a slow-footed &old guy* in a speed-emphasized, young man*s NHL, production trumps everything. Unfortunately for Jagr and the Flames, his offensive-output has dropped dramatically just one season removed from a 46-point (0.56 PPG) campaign with the Panthers. Through 22 games with Calgary, Jagr*s point-per-game pace of 0.31 is the worst of his career, as is his minuscule 3.1 shooting percentage. His primary point production has dropped off mightily, too, with his primary-points-per-60 (all situations) falling over 30 percent to 1.05 this season from 1.55 in 2016-17.There are reasons for this monumental drop in offensive production that extend far beyond Jagr*s dwindling skillset. A decline in ice time and a lack of opportunities in choice situations has certainly effected Jagr*s output, as has an unusual run-in with the injury bug, which the soon-to-be 46-year-old has avoided for the majority of his 24-season NHL career.Since arriving on youth-laden Flames club, Jagr has seen his overall ice time lessened by almost 25 percent. His 13:03 TOI this season is over four minutes less than the 17:06 he averaged the past three seasons, with the majority of that coming at even strength, and while skating on the Flames* third and fourth lines. Jagr has played just 34:51 on the power play through 22 games this season, an average of just over a minute-and-a-half per game. Last season with the Panthers, Jagr averaged just under three minutes TOI per contest with his team a man up.Offensive output along with opportunities to produce are down big time, and maybe the biggest reason for that is Jagr*s inability to stay healthy as he has his entire career. Though he was just a young-buck at the tender age of 44-45, Jagr dressed in all 82 games for Florida last season, the sixth time in his career that he*s suited up for every single one of his team*s contests. The eight-time All Star has dressed in at least 75 games an astonishing 16 campaigns during his career, and has missed just 20 of 458 games (4.4%) since his 39-year-old season in 2012-13. This season alone, Jagr has been sidelined for a whopping 49% of Calgary*s game, missing 21 contests with a lingering lower-body injury which has plagued the two-time Stanley Cup champion for the better part of four months.NASCAR fans are used to hearing controversial things out of Kyle Busch*s mouth 〞 not his brother*s. Well, that changed this week. During the NASCAR Media Tour in Charlotte, N.C., on Tuesday, Kyle said the sport*s emphasis on marketing young drivers is ※stupid.§ Fellow drivers ripped the ever-opinionated Kyle for the comments, but NASCAR itself said the remarks were ※fair.§ Enter Kyle*s brother, Kurt Busch. During a recent appearance on the Domenik Nati Show, Kurt attempted to rationalize his brothers comments. ※I agree with certain aspects of what he*s challenged, and then I disagree with other parts of it,§ Kurt said. But what I think he*s trying to say is we*re promoting these guys, and they.Roger Federer completed his latest domination of the Aussie Open with a 5-set win in the Final on Sunday, his 20th career Grand Slam title. Rafa Nadal stole headlines earlier in the tournament when he wore a sleeveless shirt at the Australian Open recently. It is not a look that Federer dares to replicate. The reason is quite simple, according to Federer. World number one-ranked tennis player Rafa Nadal caused a racket this month. Not because he was forced to withdraw from the Australian Open due to injury, but because he went on the court to play wearing a sleeveless shirt. It is not a trend we can expect Nadal's playing rival Roger Federer to replicate. Not because Federer doesn't love Nadal's.Mike Wells ESPN Staff Writer Close Previously worked at Indianapolis Star, covering the Indiana Pacers for nine seasons Also covered Vikings for St. Paul Pioneer Press Follow on Twitter Mike Wells: I think there*s a pretty chance that NC State defensive lineman Bradley Chubb will still be on the board when the Indianapolis Colts draft at No. 3 overall. That*s because the Cleveland Browns and the New York Giants, the teams with the top two picks, both need quarterbacks for the present or the future. The bigger concern -- if you want to call it that -- is that the Colts might not be in the position to choose between Chubb and Penn State running back Saquon Barkley at No. 3. Indianapolis needs help.Mike Schmitz ESPN With 21-year-old rookie stat-stuffer Ben Simmons and 23-year-old All-Star starter Joel Embiid as cornerstones, the Philadelphia 76ers have one of the most exciting young cores in the NBA. Sprinkle in high-level role starters such as Dario Saric (23) and Robert Covington (27), and young bench contributors T.J. McConnell (25) and Timothe Luwawu-Cabarrot (22) and there's reason for the optimism flowing through Philly, even with prized No. 1 pick Markelle Fultz yet to regain form. The Sixers are competitive (No. 7 in the East) while still sitting on young talent and future assets. But with all the well-deserved focus on Philly's talented, young roster and its future draft picks,2018 Dallas Cowboys Mock Draft Tracker - John Hancock, DallasNews Ten experts make their draft predictions for who they believe the Cowboys will select with the 19th overall pick. Here's from Mel Kiper Jr.'s pick: The rest of the experts are picking the following players: DT Maurice Hurst (3), DT Da'Ron Payne (2), DT Christian Wilkins [did not enter the draft], WR Michael Gallup, WR Christian Kirk, S Derwin James, Check out the write-up on each in the orginal article. If you've ever watched the Cowboy war room when they are on the clock in the second round, you can usually see them pretty excited about a player still left on the board. Last year, that excitement came from Chidobe Awuzie, A couple weeks ago, Matt Provenzano went over how the Yankees looked according to Dan Szymborski*s ZiPS projections. Spoiler alert: they look good. Projections are not a fail-safe, and reality will always diverge from what is forecast. That the Yankees project demonstrably better now than they did in recent years, however, can only be taken as a good sign. There are other teams the Yankees must contend with, however. Chief among them are the Red Sox. Indeed, Boston has won the AL East each of the past two seasons. No matter how good the Yankees look moving forward, the Red Sox are still here, and they must be taken seriously. Just how seriously? It helps to once again turn to ZiPS to get a feel.It*s the worst-kept secret in the NBA that the Los Angeles Lakers have plans on luring two big free agents this summer, but in order to do so they will need to clear some salary cap space. Jordan Clarkson and Julius Randle have been mentioned ad nauseum as potential trade candidates, but a somewhat surprising inclusion recently was Larry Nance Jr. Once called the team*s secret weapon by president of basketball operations Magic Johnson, Nance began the season as a starter, but now comes off the bench. Either way, he constantly provides excellent defense and hustle, even as his offensive game hasn*t developed as much as many had hoped, himself included. Many viewed the Lakers possibly shopping.The Cavaliers' Dwyane Wade posted an emotional farewell to Instagram on Saturday after the passing of his agent Henry "Hank" Thomas. A representative from Thomas' agency, CAA, confirmed his passing to Sports Illustrated. Wade had missed the Cavaliers game on Friday night against the Pacers with a "family emergency." In the post, Wade wrote about how Thomas served as a father figure to him and he wished he would be there for the next moments in his life. A post shared by dwyanewade (@dwyanewade) on Jan 27, 2018 at 12:32pm PST Coach Tyronn Lue said Friday that general manager Koby Altman talked with Wade and told him to "take his time" with the issue. "How much ever time he needs to take to get.The MLB Daily Dish is a daily feature we're running here at MLBDD that rounds up roster-impacting news, rumors, and analysis.

Does no one else see the awkwardness here? We*re not going to sugar coat it〞the stove is so cold it*s actually a freezer. But is there light at the end of this frigid tunnel? These are the one remaining free-agent fit for every team. The Royals have re-signed Alcides Escobar. The Mets have re-signed veteran infielder Jose Reyes. As reported by our Sports Boy Wonder Chris Cotillo,The Cardinals have been fairly quiet since their Dec. 14 trade for Marcell Ozuna. While the Ozuna addition surely moves the needle when it comes to the Cardinals' chances of making the postseason in 2018, needs remain. Mostly, the focus has been on third base. While you can certainly argue that a known quantity in the infield is called for, I'd argue the rotation presents more of a need. Here's why that's the case ... 1. The Cardinals have lost a lot of starts from last season. In keeping with ancient tradition and the rulebook, the Cardinals played 162 games in 2017. Lance Lynn and Mike Leake combined to start 59 of those 162 games, or 36.4 percent of them. Lynn is of course one of the many.

  • Houston outshot New Orleans 130-123 at home on Dec. 11 -- the teams combined for 154 points at halftime -- but the Pelicans played without Anthony Davis, an All-Star starter who has shown himself capable of going for 40 when necessary.Even though New Orleans led 101-88 late in the third quarter, James Harden scored 10 of his 26 points in the final three minutes to provide the game-winning performance. Harden also had 17 assists and six steals to lead the comeback.In the video-game offensive output, the Pelicans outshot the Rockets .576 to .545 but hurt themselves with 18 turnovers.Since then, the Pelicans have found a way to close out close games. Three of their recent victories came in overtime. Their 101-96 road win over the Charlotte Hornets, by comparison, was a blowout.
    Next up from Virgil and Nike will be two more Vapormax stylings that boast similarly simplistic color schemes 每 one in white and one in black. The difference on the black pair comes by way of a black midfoot Swoosh, and an icy bubble sole which will also take shape on the white pair. Both new OFF WHITE x Nike selections are scheduled to arrive next month in a limited quantity. Keep it locked to Sneaker News for updated release information and better images as they become available.Manziel would draw eyeballs like few other players who would consider the XFL. We*ll see how serious McMahon was about allowing players in if they have a spotty past.

  • When the offseason began, there seemed to be a zero-percent chance the Phils ended up with a free-agent ace. The odds are still long, but the more time that goes by, the more likely the starting pitching market gets to a place in which they feel comfortable enough to pounce.
