Cowboys Beat Saints, New NBA Score Margin Record

On Thursday Night Football, the Dallas Cowboys defeated the New Orleans Saints, 27-17. Dallas used a very strong defensive scheme to halt all aspects of the Saints’ offense. Saints’ quarterback Taysom Hill might have run for over 100 yards, but he also threw four interceptions, including one pick-6. The Cowboys move to 8-4, further solidifying their lead in the NFC East, while the Saints fall to 5-7 and still fight for a playoff spot. 

Also, on Thursday night, there was a new record set in the NBA. The Memphis Grizzlies defeated the Oklahoma City Thunder, 152-79. The 73-point differential became a new league-high, as this game now holds the greatest margin in NBA history.

Wednesday Wins in the NBA, MLB Collective Bargaining Agreement Expires

On Wednesday night, the NBA offered a handful of notable match-ups that were narrowly won. The Boston Celtics defeated the Philadelphia 76ers, 88-87. The Milwaukee Bucks escaped a night contest with the Charlotte Hornets, as they won 127-125. The major upset of the evening was the 5-18 Orlando Magic defeating the now 10-11 Denver Nuggets, 108-103. 

In baseball news, the MLB will go into its first lockout since the 1994 season. The work-stoppage is a result of conflicting interests between players and owners, as the expired Collective Bargaining Agreement has officially led to a lockout. The Major League Winter Meetings are also canceled, as owners and players will spend December and January developing a new CBA that must be approved by the MLB Players’ Association.

Nets Beat Knicks, Suns Defeat Warriors

Tuesday night was filled with high-quality match-ups in the NBA.

Most notably, the Brooklyn Nets narrowly defeated the New York Knicks, 112-110. Nets shooting guard James Harden had 34 points, as well as the game-winning free throws. The Nets also survived Tuesday night’s game thanks to Kevin Durant’s 27 points and nine assists.

No game measured up to the intense match-up between the Phoenix Suns and the Golden State Warriors. The two best teams in the NBA faced-0ff on Tuesday night, the Suns pulling away with a 104-96 victory. The Suns lost star shooting guard Devin Booker before half-time due to a hamstring injury–but that did not stop Phoenix from defeating Golden State. Warriors point guard Steph Curry had a historically bad evening, as he shot 3-14 on three-pointers.

Washington Football Team Defeats Seattle Seahawks, 17-15

On Monday Night Football, the Washington Football Team narrowly defeated the Seattle Seahawks, 17-15. The Washington Football Team picks up their third win in a row, while Seattle loses its third game in a row. The Seahawks had a chance to tie the game with a two-point conversion, but quarterback Russell Wilson was intercepted with only seconds left of the game.

In baseball news, there is only one day left until a potential work-stoppage for the MLB, as the current Collective Bargaining Agreement is set to expire on December 1st. Teams are attempting to quickly sign free agents before the CBA deadline. Most notably, the New York Mets have signed star-pitcher Max Scherzer, while the Texas Rangers have spent nearly $500M to sign both Marcus Semien and Corey Seager for multiple years.
