  • Harden’s style may not be for everyone and he still needs to find more postseason success, but he’s claiming his place among the all-time greats.

  • If LeBron James isn't the best basketball player ever, he most certainly is on the shortlist. Dribbling the ball just past midcourt -- with an official directly to his side, no less -- James clearly took at least three steps in between dribbles during the Lakers' game in Utah on Wednesday night. The same can't be said of former Warrior Andre Iguodala, who not only saw it, but made sure to point out just how egregious of a travel it was.

  • At the moment, the 4-19 Warriors are the furthest thing from terrifying. "The people I talk to around the league are really worried they are going to trade that first-round pick, the 2020 pick, because if they load up with an All-Star-type player with that pick, they are terrified," Haberstroh said during the Warriors-Hornets telecast on NBC Sports Bay Area on Wednesday. The Warriors are expected to have a healthy Steph Curry and Klay Thompson back next season to go along with Draymond Green, D'Angelo Russell and Kevon Looney.

  • Tiger Woods said Tuesday that the goal with testing out possible Presidents Cup pairings in the first round of this week's Hero World Challenge would be putting friends together and having fun. "I would say that trying to pair up the guys so they had fun this week, we're looking at that,” Woods said. Well for the most part, it looked like Woods had a blast with buddy Justin Thomas on Wednesday, but it was particularly evident on the 11th hole, when the 44-year-old tournament host outdrove the 26-year-old Thomas by a mile, and then made sure to let him know it.

  • Dallas Cowboys defensive tackle Antwaun Woods won't play Thursday night due to a knee injury, but that might not be the only thing keeping him off the field. Woods was arrested in Texas on Tuesday and charged with possession of marijuana, according to Ian Rapoport of NFL Network. Woods was also charged for tampering with evidence.

  • No team has fewer interceptions than the Cowboys' four, and Dallas hasn't forced a turnover since playing the fumble-happy New York Giants a month ago in Week 9. Takeaways haven't come in bunches for the Bears' defense, but will be critically important against a Cowboys offense that's bizarrely No. 1 in yards per play but No. 8 in scoring. Meaning: The Bears need to not only generate a short field or two for Mitch Trubisky and their offense, but will probably need to take the ball away from Dak Prescott and the Cowboys deep in Chicago territory.

  • The New England Patriots are still figuring out how to maximize their production at wide receiver, but one NFL legend is guaranteeing that help is on the way. "I guarantee it, something's going to happen within the next few weeks in the receiver department," Hall of Fame cornerback and current NFL Network analyst Deion Sanders said on "NFL Gameday" earlier this week. Sanders didn't elaborate on what kind of help the Patriots would be getting, or how it would materialize.

  • The Colts claimed kicker Chase McLaughlin off waivers from the 49ers with Adam Vinatieri undergoing an MRI on his sore knee. The Patriots put in a claim for McLaughlin as did the Bills, Ian Rapoport of the NFL reports. The Colts, though, had priority.

  • Since Week 4, Cousins has thrown 18 touchdown passes and produced at least 276 passing yards in six of his past eight games. He faces a Lions defense that allows the eighth-most fantasy points to opposing quarterbacks while yielding 25 touchdown passes. SIT: Josh Allen, QB, Bills: Allen has a stellar 11-1 TD:INT margin since Week 7, yet has only two games of better than 250 passing yards.

  • Every day in the NBA there is a lot to unpack, so every weekday morning throughout the season we will give you the three things you need to know from the last 24 hours in the NBA. 1) Lakers make a defensive statement in back-to-back road wins in Denver, Utah. After winning 10 games in a row against the softest part of their schedule, the calendar flipping to December was supposed to start a real test for the Lakers.

  • Madison Bumgarner stepped to the plate against longtime Dodgers rival and friend Clayton Kershaw at Oracle Park on Sept. 29, 2019. The pitcher who rakes pinch-hit for shortstop Brandon Crawford in the seventh inning of Game 162, and lined out on a 3-2 fastball to third baseman Jedd Gyorko. After free-agent pitcher Zack Wheeler reportedly agreed to a five-year, $118 million contract with the Phillies on Wednesday, it became clear Bumgarner very well could sign a nine-figure contract this offseason.
