Surprise! Golden State is the team to beat out West, again

By TIM REYNOLDS The Associated Press And now we know: It worked. The big question at this time last season was about Golden State and how it would work when taking a high-octane team and adding a dynamic scorer like Kevin Durant to the mix. Pundits wondered how the shots would be distributed, who would take the big shots in crunch time, how would Durant fare alongside another MVP in Stephen Curry. The answer came in June, when the Warriors hoisted their second championship trophy in three years. Another season has arrived, the Western Conference looks loaded yet again, and Golden State is going to be practically everyone’s pick to finish atop the heap yet again. “We don’t have guys that are selfish at all, that are jealous of anybody else’s success or going to create drama if they get five shots one game and 15 shots the next game,” Curry said. “As long as we win.” It may not be as easy this season, and the Warriors are welcoming that challenge. Houston has gone all-in on a title chase, giving up seven players, a future first-round pick and cash to bring Chris Paul over from the Los Angeles Clippers to join James Harden in a backcourt that can match up with any other — the Warriors’ duo of Curry and Klay Thompson included. And Oklahoma City has the...

In watered down East, Celtics-Cavs is the best thing going

By JON KRAWCZYNSKI The Associated Press As star after star migrated from the Eastern Conference to the West this summer, the lesser of the NBA’s divisions got so watered down that some spice was badly needed. Kyrie Irving delivered. The mercurial guard stunned the rest of the league by requesting a trade away from LeBron James and the Cavaliers and the annual trip to the NBA Finals that comes with James. In subsequent interviews since he was traded to the Celtics, Irving has done little to smooth things over with the game’s best player or the franchise that drafted him No. 1 overall in 2011. “It’s just really between two men,” Irving said last month when asked if he planned to reach out to James to clear the air. “If it happens or not, I’m pretty sure you guys won’t know about it.” James didn’t hide his disappointment in Irving’s decision after teaming with him to go to the last three finals and win a championship two years ago. “I tried to give him everything and give him as much of the DNA as I could,” he said. “At some point, when he was ready to take over the keys, I was ready to give them to him. So, the only thing I’m upset about is he took a lot of the DNA and a lot of the blueprint...

Court clears way for six-game suspension for Cowboys’ Elliott

FRISCO, Texas (AP) — A federal appeals court cleared the way for the NFL to impose a six-game suspension on Dallas Cowboys star Ezekiel Elliott over domestic violence allegations on Thursday, siding with the league in the latest high-profile fight over its ability to punish players for off-field behavior. In a 2-1 decision, the 5th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals panel in New Orleans granted the league’s emergency request to set aside an injunction and ordered a district court in Texas to dismiss Elliott’s case. The case may not be done yet and further appeals were possible. One of Elliott’s representatives didn’t immediately respond to a request for comment. A federal judge in Texas had issued an injunction that blocked the suspension last month, agreeing with NFL players’ union attorneys who argued that the investigation of the allegations in Ohio and a subsequent appeal were unfair to Elliott, one of the league’s standout running backs. The Cowboys have a bye this weekend. The NFL countered that it followed procedures under the league’s labor deal and that the union improperly filed a lawsuit before the appeals process was complete. The most likely destination for further legal challenges from players’ union attorneys representing Elliott is with the Southern District of New York. The NFL filed in that federal court after Elliott’s NFL appeal was denied by arbitrator Harold Henderson last month....

Win and you’re in for B-P, Johnstown

By ADAM SHINDER @RecorderShinder For both the Broadalbin-Perth Patriots and Johnstown Sir Bills, tonight’s game at Knox Field presents a simple scenario: Win, and you’re in the Section II Class B playoffs next week. Lose, and the meaningful part of your season is over. Fulton County rivals B-P and Johnstown will clash for the fourth and final playoff spot out of the Class B North Division tonight at 7. Both teams had chances over the past two weeks to improve their postseason chances, but both let fourth-quarter leads against Hudson Falls slip away as the Tigers were able to lock up their playoff spot. Now, it comes down to one game for one spot. Win, or go home. “Do or die to get in,” B-P coach Jim Pelneau said Friday night following the Patriots’ 22-20 loss to Hudson Falls. “We want to get in, we want to give it a shot and get into sectionals, that’s our goal.” B-P (2-4, 0-3 Class B North) is mired in a three-game losing streak. The first two of those losses came against powerhouses Glens Falls and Schuylerville, but the Patriots had themselves in position to win last week’s game against Hudson Falls before a pair of fourth-quarter turnovers led to the game slipping out of their control. Even in defeat, junior quarterback Brodryk Benton threw for 208 yards and three touchdowns on...
