NBA preview: Northwest Division

LAST SEASON: 59-23, lost to San Antonio Spurs 4-2 in Western Conference finals. G/F Thabo Sefolosha (trade, Hawks), F Caron Butler (free agent, Pistons), C Hasheem Thabeet (free agent, 76ers), G Derek Fisher (retired). Morrow could provide the solid three-point shooter that helps the Thunder get back to the Finals for the first time since 2012, but only if Durant (foot surgery) can return by December, as hoped. G Steve Blake (free agent, Warriors), C Chris Kaman (free agent, Lakers). With the return of all five starters and boosted by last season’s appearance in the conference...

Rookies Paul Richardson, Kevin Norwood suddenly growing up in Seahawks’ offense; NFL picks

Yet another domino effect of last week’s trade of Percy Harvin is the increased roles for rookie wide receivers Paul Richardson and Kevin Norwood. I know: Many of you on here are saying, “It’s about time!” Richardson sees his initial, methodical easing into the Seahawks’ offense the same way he views his current, new role with the Super Bowl champions. “Perfect.” “I think I’ve grown a lot, just as far as how this team operates and functions in a real game,” the freakishly fast, rookie second- round draft choice from Colorado said this week, the Seahawks’ first full one...

Royals edge Giants, 3-2, in Game 3 of World Series

SAN FRANCISCO — Jeremy Guthrie pitched shutout ball into the sixth inning, Lorenzo Cain drove in an early run off Tim Hudson and made a pair of nifty catches, and the Kansas City Royals beat the San Francisco Giants 3-2 Friday night to take a 2-1 World Series lead. Cain’s RBI groundout three batters in put the Royals ahead, and Kansas City expanded its lead to 3-0 in the sixth when Alex Gordon hit an RBI double off Cain and scored on Eric Hosmer’s single off left-hander Javier Lopez. read more

Baltimore Ravens without starting tight end Owen Daniels

Baltimore Ravens without starting tight end Owen Daniels

The Cincinnati Bengals defense has been awful during the team's current winless streak. One issue that will benefit them is the absence of Baltimore's starting tight end. Maybe things won't be so bad for Cincinnati's maligned defense. Vontaze Burfict and Emmanuel Lamur are expected to play... well, at least start, because you know that Burfict is going to concuss himself and leave the game... and the team is believably disgusted after an epic 27-0 loss (which reminded everyone of the state of affairs prior to Marvin Lewis' arrival) that MUST have appealed to their personal pride. It's like...

Raiders-Browns Injury Report: Ahtyba Rubin Set to Return

Raiders-Browns Injury Report: Ahtyba Rubin Set to Return

Here is a wrap-up of the injury situation for the Cleveland Browns heading into this week's game against the Oakland Raiders: The only two players ruled out are DE Phil Taylor and WR Rodney Smith. I don't anticipate that DE Billy Winn will be back, but because of how he felt during Friday's practice, head coach Mike Pettine has called him a game-time decision. The great news is that NT Ahtyba Rubin practiced in full on Friday and will start against the Raiders. Any depth we get back on the line is a boost. CB K'Waun Williams has been cleared to return from his concussion, but we don't...

Jets vs. Bills: Five Questions With Buffalo Rumblings

Jets vs. Bills: Five Questions With Buffalo Rumblings

Brian Galliford of Buffalo Rumblings was kind enough to answer five Bills questions from me ahead of tomorrow's game at the Meadowlands. 1. Describe some of the differences since the Bills changed from E.J. Manuel to Kyle Orton at quarterback. They're far more efficient passing the football, and they're far easier to sack and turn over. It's a classic "take the bad with the good" situation. Orton is utterly lacking in mobility and has literally run into the arms of defenders on a few occasions, and is a bit more cavalier with the football than Manuel was. But he's also completing ...
