Warriors squander Steph Curry’s accomplishment as they lose big to Jazz

By the time Stephen Curry’s record-breaking 3-pointer dropped through the net, the game was already out of hand. Curry moved into second place on the NBA’s all-time made 3-pointers list with a falling-away shot in the corner with 10:59 remaining in the third quarter of the Warriors’ 127-108 loss to the Jazz Saturday in Utah. However, the accomplishment was limited to a historical footnote, as the Warriors (8-8) at that time had already trailed by 29 points in a game that got out of hand early. The Jazz (12-4), now on a league-best eight-game win streak, opened the game with a 14-0 run and eventually put the Warriors into a 17-point hole. With Curry and Andrew Wiggins each notching 10 points in the first quarter, the Warriors managed to cut the deficit to nine heading into the second perio...

Do NFL Players Still Get Paid if They Get Hurt?

While the NFL entertains fans and fosters competition, it’s first and foremost a business. Teams are structured to win and make money, and the elite players who represent those teams are the commodities. So when one of those players goes down with an injury, it affects the entire organization. Within the NFL, there’s a fair shot that most players will incur some kind of injury during their playing careers. That’s why many players insist on certain clauses within their contracts to guarantee payment even if an injury occurs.

Alexander: Bruins’ loss should get their attention

Play with fire often enough and you get torched. If there’s a lesson for UCLA’s men’s basketball Bruins out of Saturday’s 73-72 loss to Stanford in Santa Cruz – it accurately was a last-tenth-of-a-second loss – that would be it. That 8-0 conference record? Those six straight conference victories by six points or less? Maybe they created a false sense of security, a “we can dig ourselves out of any hole” attitude among a group that only this week climbed into the AP rankings at No. 24 and by the acknowledgment of Coach Mick Cronin doesn’t have any imminent NBA lottery picks in the group. If there was such an attitude, it was shattered by the final play, Oscar da Silva’s layup off an inbound pass from Michael O’Connell underneath the basket. The play began with 0.8 left on the clock, and TV

Wildman Jack flourishes in return to dirt, wins Palos Verdes Stakes

Wildman Jack, already a two-time stakes winner on the turf, proved Saturday at Santa Anita that he’s a wiz over the main track as well. The 5-year-old gelded son of Goldencents toyed with his seven rivals in the $200,000 Grade III Palos Verdes Stakes, beating Shashashakemeup by 4 1/4 lengths while running the 6 furlongs in a rapid 1:08.98 over a dirt surface that has not been yielding fast times. Wildman Jack, ridden by the streaking Abel Cedillo and trained by Doug O’Neill, tracked pacesetter Captain Scotty from second most of the way before taking the lead at the head of the stretch and then drawing away to win as the 5-1 fifth choice in the wagering. Pyron finished third, 1 3/4 lengths behind the runnerup, but none of the other seven horses were a match for Wildman Jack, who had finishe

A: Why is that? Q: Your column is replete with narcissistic complainers who retch about road boulders, speeders, lane-changers, dive-bombers, and tailgaters. But these denizens of the vanishing manual control era will be cast into a deep depression when their new autopilot vehicle obeys speed laws, maintains safe separation, won’t weave in and out of traffic, run red lights, or cut others off. Predictably, as the limited road real estate fills to capacity with ever-longer trucks and SUVs, autopilots will announce the sad news as to when your vehicle will be permitted to enter traffic.

Steph Curry passes Reggie Miller on the NBA’s all-time 3-point list

With his falling-away 3-pointer in the third quarter in Saturday’s game against the Jazz, Stephen Curry passed Reggie Miller for second place on the NBA’s career 3-point list. Curry got the pass from Draymond Green and hoisted a falling-away 3-pointer from the corner that cut Utah’s lead to 79-50 with 10:59 left in the third quarter. The shot gave Curry 2,561 career made 3-pointers made, behind only Ray Allen (2,973) on the all-time list. In January of 2019, Curry moved into third place behind Miller. Miller made 2,560 3-pointers over 1,389 regular season games during his 18-year NBA career. Curry needed only 715 games to eclipse Miller’s mark in 11-plus seasons. At his current pace, Curry would need little more than 100 games to catch Allen. In this shortened 72-game season, Curry would ...
