- February 08, 2018

Son, the best player on the pitch in the first half, scuttled in from the left and slipped in Lamela, who poked home for his first goal since September 2016. After the first leg, Spurs won't be taking this match lightly. Asked if he needed to win silverware this season, he added: "No". Newport's belief seemed to evaporate instantly as Son Heung-min and the lively Lamela both unleashed shots at Joe Day, with the same pair then combining for a second goal. (more...)
49ers sign Garoppolo to record-breaking deal 49ers sign Garoppolo to record-breaking deal
- February 08, 2018

The thinking was the one-year tag, which would have paid Garoppolo over $23 million, would have given the 49ers more time to evaluate him and determine if he was a franchise quarterback. His seven career starts have all resulted in victory. It is good news for impending free agent QB Kirk Cousins , who can expect to break that record again when he signs on with a team after leaving Washington. (more...)

The Cleveland Cavaliers have made a decision to burn their roster to the ground before their hopes of competing for one final title go up in smoke. However, the Cavaliers' recent on-court struggles and reported locker-room strife always meant deadline day was likely to be busy, and the team's rash of moves - bringing in Jordan Clarkson, George Hill and Rodney Hood on the perimeter alone - put his place in the rotation in jeopardy.

Kohli hits unbeaten ton to power India to 303
- February 08, 2018

Now only two players have scored more centuries as captain than Kohli: Ricky Ponting with 22 centuries (in 220 innings) and AB de Villiers with 13 (in 98). With de Kock out, Markram might have to move to the top of the batting order and partner Amla, and then depend on the experience of Duminy, David Miller and Morris, with Heinrich Klaasen possibly in as de Kock's replacement.

This is the first ever Super Bowl win for the Eagles franchise, while Tom Brady himself has five total Super Bowl wins with the Patriots. We have to share.

Before making the 13,500-egg return, good-natured chefs posted a photo to Twitter explaining the mixup. The order was apparently lost in translation, however, and they received a bumper batch - some 13,500 more than expected.

The Pistons have traded Willie Reed to the Chicago Bills for Jameer Nelson , a point guard who played under Stan Van Gundy in Orlando. The teams are also swapping second-round picks in 2022 as part of the deal, league sources said.

- February 08, 2018

As one of the best rebounders in the league and a double-double machine (11.8 points and 14.1 rebounds per game since the 2013-14 season), "DJ" is rightfully a hot commodity today.
