    NBA great Stephen Curry gifts UFC Hall of Famer Khabib Nurmagomedov signed game jersey in Toronto

    Greatness recognizes greatness. While in Canada for appearances, UFC Hall of Famer Khabib Nurmagomedov took some time out of his schedule to take in an NBA game between the Golden State Warriors and the Toronto Raptors, and also meet one of the best shooters of all-time, Stephen Curry. “It’s different expereince to watch live one of the best NBA player in the world,” Nurmagomedov tweeted along with a picture of Curry on the court mid-game. On the second night of back-to-back games on a road trip which included Curry’s first game in Canada since 2019, the Warriors picked up their eighth straight away victory.

    NBA In-Season Tournament: Next Steps Ahead for Adam Silver

    In international basketball competitions outside North America, the point differential tiebreaker is standard. This isn’t the case for the NBA, which stirred up some confusion for players. Teams leveraged running up the score in late games. “I’m not ready necessarily to move away from it, but if ultimately there’s going to be a sense, particularly from our American fans, that somehow it is an indication of poor sportsmanship, that’s not a good idea for us to be doing it,” Silver said. Silver is reluctant to make any changes but has been aware of the implications it may pose for the fans. The NBA league office has discussed the addition of…

    Washington Huskies previes: 2024 Sugar Bowl vs. Texas

    It’s the College Football Semifinals on Monday, January 1, as the second-ranked Washington Huskies face number three Texas at the Sugar Bowl. The 12-0 Washington Huskies play on New Year’s Day in what some consider their biggest game ever. In the National Championship Semifinal, they face the third-ranked Texas Longhorns at the Sugar Bowl. According to CBS Sports, UT is favored by 3.5 points. They also report the over/under is 63.5, so the score would be like 34 to 30. That shouldn’t phase the Huskies, as they were underdogs to the Oregon Ducks in the Pac-12 Championship game, too. And they proved the critics wrong. In the last matchup between…

    Canadiens confirm bad news on star winger

    Canadiens winger Alex Newhook left Thursday’s loss to Florida with a lower-body injury, and it will keep him out for a while.  The team announced that Newhook will miss the next 10 to 12 weeks with a high-ankle sprain. The 22-year-old is in his first season with Montreal after being acquired from Colorado just before the draft in June for the 31st and 37th picks along with prospect blueliner Gianni Fairbrother.  Despite taking a step back with the Avalanche last season, the Canadiens saw fit to give Newhook a four-year contract over the summer, one that carries a $2.9M cap hit; he will still be a restricted free agent at its…
