Warriors, Lakers, Celtics among five NBA teams with most to be thankful for

It's Thanksgiving time, and there are a lot of teams in the NBA that have a lot to be thankful for (the Nets are not one of them, which is saying a lot for a team that has Kevin Durant). But we're going to split some hairs here. Every team that has a superstar is thankful for that superstar, but I've attempted to narrow it down to the five teams that have the most to be thankful for, and what, exactly, they are thankful for. Here it goes. When five teams passed on Curry in the 2009 draft, including the Timberwolves twice, the Warriors had no idea what they were getting. Curry has transformed Golden State's franchise in ways that would've been unimaginable even a decade ago when Curry first became an All-Star. Four cha...

NFL Week 12 picks: Patriots shock Vikings on Thanksgiving, Cowboys steamroll Giants, Packers upset Eagles

It's Thanksgiving Week and we all know what that means around here: Instead of football picks, I'm going to share all my favorite Thanksgiving recipes with you! Actually, that's a lie. I have no recipes. I've never cooked a turkey in my life, I've never been within five feet of a green bean casserole and I'm not even sure how mashed potatoes are made. I think you just get potatoes and mash them, but I can't say that with 100% certainty. My favorite Thanksgiving recipe is any recipe that involves wine, because I can just pour it in a glass and consume it without actually cooking anything. Speaking of drinking wine, I feel like I should donate a bottle to every Jets fans alive to help them get over what happened on Sund...

How Warriors’ Stephen Curry found a new way to dominate with elite finishing around the basket

The defending champion Golden State Warriors are off to a frustrating start this season that currently has them outside of even the play-in picture in the crowded Western Conference. Even more concerning, they're under .500 despite some truly brilliant play from Steph Curry.Through his first 15 games, Curry is averaging 32.2 points, 6.7 rebounds and 6.6 assists per game, while shooting 52.8 percent from the field, 44.3 percent from 3-point land and 90.9 percent from the free-throw line. He's third in the league in scoring, leads the league by a wide margin in 3-pointers made (77, compared to 55 for Buddy Hield, who is in second place) and is on pace to join Larry Bird and Steve Nash as the only players with multiple 5...

Curry and Thompson were both inactive for the earlier meeting between the sides this season and Williamson finished with just 16 points and three rebounds.After Williamson missed two games on October 25 and 28, he returned with a 21-point, 12-rebound effort against the Clippers on October 30.

Joe Burrow calls win over Steelers ‘one of my favorite’; QB shares his postgame message to Kenny Pickett

PITTSBURGH -- Joe Burrow adjusted his hair, then exhaled before beginning his postgame press conference. With the booming sound of the Bengals' celebratory locker room music echoing behind him, the Bengals quarterback shared the significance of Sunday's 37-30 win. After an 0-2 start, the defending AFC champions now stand at 6-4 after defeating a Pittsburgh team that upset them 10 weeks earlier in the season opener. That game now seems like a distant memory for Burrow and the Bengals, who latched on to the seventh and final AFC playoff seed following Sunday's win. "That was awesome. One of my favorite wins since I've been here," said Burrow, who improved his career record to 3-2 against the Steelers. "Lot of adversity....
