Dallas Cowboys quarterback Tony Romo underwent tests Tuesday morning for a more complete look at the bruised back he suffered in the third quarter of Monday's 20-17 overtime loss to the Washington Redskins.
LeBron James struggled from the start in his first game with Cleveland in four years, and the New York Knicks ruined the megastar's emotional homecoming with a 95-90 victory over the Cavaliers on Thursday night.
Oklahoma City Thunder guard Russell Westbrook suffered a small fracture of the second metacarpal in his right hand Thursday night, coach Scott Brooks said.
LeBron James shot miserably. ''I didn't press,'' James said, dismissing nerves as a factor. ''I didn't do much.'' James struggled from the start in his first game with Cleveland in four years, and the New York Knicks ruined the megastar's emotional return home with a 95-90 victory over the Cavaliers on Thursday night. James, who returned to the Cavs and his native Ohio this summer after winning two NBA titles in Miami, finished with 17 points on 5-of-15 shooting.
If trailing Auburn by 18 last season in the BCS Championship game didn't shake Florida State, a 21-0 first-half deficit to Louisville surely wasn't going to, either. Thanks to another remarkable comeback by the Seminoles and quarterback Jameis Winston, their hopes of competing for a second straight national championship remain intact. Winston threw three touchdown passes to offset a three-interception start and Dalvin Cook had two long scoring runs to help second-ranked Florida State rally for a 42-31 victory over Louisville on Thursday night. Fun to watch, wasn't it?'' Seminoles coach Jimbo Fisher said.
The Clippers didn't shoot well, couldn't build more than a 10-point lead, and still managed to usher in the Steve Ballmer era with a victory for their new owner. Blake Griffin scored 23 points, making two free throws with five seconds left, and Chris Paul added 22 in a season-opening 93-90 win Thursday over the Oklahoma City Thunder, who lost another star to injury when Russell Westbrook broke his right hand. ''It was pretty ugly,'' Clippers coach Doc Rivers said. He paid a record $2 billion to buy the team after 33-year owner Donald Sterling was banned for life by the NBA for racist remarks.
Temple still has two games left in the regular season.
However, after Saturday's 39-36 loss to Central Florida, coach Matt Rhule addressed the offseason and said that upgrading the team's talent - especially on defense - is a huge priority.
Central Florida coach George O’Leary had nothing but praise for Temple Monday during his American Athletic Conference teleconference on Monday.
Central Florida (8-1), ranked 17h in the nation, needed a 23-yard field goal with time running out over the weekend to pull out a 39-36 victory over Temple, which fell to 1-9 on the season with two games left to play.
When Temple, leading by 20-16 with 1 minute, 50 seconds to play, failed to convert on fourth and 1 at the Rutgers 27 and turned the ball over to the Scarlet Knights, Rutgers quarterback Gary Nova felt confident.Read more...
