Oladipo, Bogdanovic lead Pacers over Magic 105-97


It might have been Victor Oladipo’s best all-around game at the arena where he played his first three NBA seasons.

The game remained 2-1 until the Devils equalized on Gibbons’ top-of-the-crease deflection with 4:44 left in regulation. Up to that point, though, Khudobin was the story as the netminder stopped a Blake Coleman shorthanded attempt with 10:35 left in the second. Khudobin also benefitted from Hischier, the first overall pick in last June’s NHL draft, losing control of the puck alongside the goal line late in the period. Midway through the third, Khudobin stoned Hischier from the top of the crease.

The Devils outshot the Bruins, 42-29.

Prior to the game, New Jersey announced RW Kyle Palmieri would miss 4-6 weeks with a broken right foot, suffered in the Devils’ 4-3 overtime win in Minnesota Monday. The team later announced Palmieri had been placed on the injured reserve retroactive to Monday. .New Jersey scratched D Dalton Prout and RW Stefan Noesen. .Bruins C Ryan Spooner dressed for the first time since suffering a torn right adductor on Oct. 15. .

They are joined by Johan Santana and Chris Carpenter. Also among the newcomers to the 33-man ballot announced Monday are Jamie Moyer, Andruw Jones, Carlos Lee, Kevin Millwood, Carlos Zambrano and Johnny Damon.

Trevor Hoffman, who fell five votes short last year, leads holdovers who include Vladimir Guerrero, Edgar Martinez, Roger Clemens, Barry Bonds, Mike Mussina and Curt Schilling.

Roy Halladay will not appear on the ballot for another year. The retired pitcher died Nov. 7 at age 40 when a plane he was piloting crashed off Florida. A player who dies less than five full years after retiring is eligible in the next election six months following his death or at the end of the five-year wait after his retirement, whichever comes first. Halladay had been set to be eligible in the ballot sent to voters in late 2018.

Nathan Peterman’s first start a disaster for Bills


Tyrod Taylor had thrown just three interceptions all season. Nathan Peterman did that in a quarter on Sunday.

Despite the four picks, the Chargers stuck with Peterman as Taylor remained on the sideline. Taylor had completed 64 percent of his passes for 1,684 yards and 10 touchdowns to three interceptions. Not helping matters for Peterman is that wide receiver Kelvin Benjamin was lost on the first series of the game with a knee injury after making a 20-yard catch.

A fifth interception in the first half led to a Chargers field goal as the Bolts built a 37-7 halftime lead. After the Chargers added fourth Nick Novak field goal on the opening series of the second half, Taylor took the field at quarterback.

Winston acknowledged the report and denied the accusations in a statement, asserting that Kate “was confused as to the number of passengers in the car and who was sitting next to her.”

Nine months after the alleged incident with Kate, Winston settled a civil lawsuit stemming from rape allegations in 2012. Darby, who was Winston’s teammate at Florida State, had previously witnessed that encounter.

Clayborn set a franchise record with his six sacks of Dallas quarterback Dak Prescott during Sunday’s 27-7 win in Atlanta. His six sacks are tied for the second-most in a game since the individual sack became an official statistic in 1982. Only Pro Football Hall of Famer Derrick Thomas (7 sacks on Nov. 11, 1990) had more sacks in a single game. Clayborn also forced two fumbles and recovered one fumble.

Point scores in overtime, Lightning beat Blackhawks 3-2


Brayden Point scored a power-play goal 3:25 into overtime, and the Tampa Bay Lightning rallied again to beat the Chicago Blackhawks 3-2 on Wednesday night.

Point took a pass from Steven Stamkos while positioned near the post and put the winner past Corey Crawford.

Tampa Bay got also goals from Ondrej Palat and Chris Kunitz, and Andrei Vasilevskiy made 29 saves. Ryan Callahan had two assists.

Patrick Kane scored twice and Crawford stopped 35 shots for the Blackhawks, who blew leads in losing both games between the teams last season.

In the letter, Blank wrote that Jones was ignoring facts “to satisfy your personal agenda,” according to the Journal.

Sources familiar with the negotiations told ESPN that Goodell’s extension still is on track to be completed at or before the owners’ Dec. 13 meetings in Dallas.

Jones threatened to sue the league if the committee approves an extension, saying it should be reviewed and approved by all owners. Goodell’s current deal as commissioner is set to expire after the 2018 season.

The Panthers quarterback accounted for 223 yards of total offense and a touchdown in the 20-17 victory.

The Falcons fell to 4-4 with the loss and are now two games back of New Orleans (6-2) in the NFC South after the Saints cruised to a 30-10 win over the Buccaneers. The defending NFC champions face an uphill climb over the second half of the season to crawl back into playoff contention.

Here are three takeaways from the Panthers’ win over the Falcons

1. Newton played like an MVP — When the Panthers (6-3) needed Newton to take over the game, he did. The 2015 NFL MVP was just 13 of 23 through the air for 137 yards, but ran for 86 yards and a touchdown. Newton’s leaping score gave the Panthers a 14-10 halftime lead they would not relinquish.
