    ORLANDO, Fla. — It’s hard to imagine that the team tied with the third-best win percentage in the NBA doesn’t “know how to win.” But the Warriors are having a major identity crisis as of late without Stephen Curry. Golden State looked out of sync in its second-straight embarrassing loss to a team many believed it should’ve beat Tuesday night, leaving coach Steve Kerr to sound the alarm in his postgame news conference. “Is there any level of concern? Yeah, we just lost two games in a row without Steph,” he said after the Warriors’ 94-90 loss to the Orlando Magic at Amway Center. “So the schedule gets harder, so yeah, there’s a little bit of concern, we’ve gotta do better.” Outside of Jordan Poole and Otto Porter Jr., Golden State has struggled without Curry on the floor in its last two games against the San Antonio Spurs and Magic. And Tuesday’s game was another contest riddled with “mental mistakes.” Klay Thompson made a critical error with 13 seconds remaining in the game, fouling Franz Wagner on a three-point attempt....

    A professional gambler knows that most casino games wager majorly on luck. Meaning that you have no control over the outcome of the game most of the time. But a game like blackjack is a little different. Anyone playing has equal opportunity to win the game. This does not mean that the game of blackjack is entirely up to the player, but it does lean on creating strategies to win, rather than just relying on luck. It is up to the player to understand how to play blackjack. For instance, if you are playing in a casino like FanDuel, it might be a good idea to learn how to play blackjack with FanDuel first, to understand how to strategize and win the games. If you want to have a fair shot at winning at blackjack, follow the tips below: 1. Plan a Good Strategy In a game of blackjack, a player must understand that the outcome of the game depends mostly on strategy and probability, not luck. So, before you start playing a blackjack game, come up with a plan...
    The frustration is mounting during Stanford’s three-game losing streak, to the point that one of the team’s most high-profile supporters offered his take on what needs to change. Hall of Famer Emmitt Smith, the father of Stanford running back E.J. Smith, wrote to his 763,600 Twitter followers that the offense was “too predictable” during Saturday’s 20-13 loss to Washington, which was the second straight game that the Cardinal allowed a go-ahead touchdown in the final 90 seconds. “That’s what you get … when you’re trying to feature your QB,” Smith wrote in a since-deleted tweet. “You have 3 RBs who can produce for you.” Stanford has run the ball 219 times, the fourth-fewest of the 130 FBS teams (behind only Mississippi State, Western Kentucky, and Nevada). But don’t expect huge changes when the Cardinal face Utah on Friday at Stanford Stadium (7:30 p.m., FS1). “More than anything else it’s really just a mentality,” Shaw said. “It’s the mentality of finishing games. There’s no magic trick, there’s no magic play call, there’s no benching one guy and...
    100 best American horror movies of all time How Do We Close the Gender Gap in Homeownership? © Provided by NBC Sports Replay Video SETTINGS OFF HD HQ SD LO Skip Ad Watford vs Southampton is a huge battle towards the bottom of the Premier League table on Saturday (start time 10am ET on Peacock Premium) as the Hornets and Saints do battle at Vicarage Road. STREAM LIVE WATFORD v SOUTHAMPTON Claudio Ranieri’s Watford are flying high after their big 5-2 win at Everton last week, as a late surge of goals (including a hat trick from Josh King) led them to an unexpected victory. With a tough stretch of games after this clash against the Saints, there’s no doubt that Ranieri will earmark this as ‘must win’ if they’re going to stay away from relegation table. After being hammered by Liverpool, the win at Everton was just what Ranieri needed to build belief in his tactics. Southampton have eight points on the board and sit in 16th, two points and two places behind Watford in the table. Ralph Hasenhuttl’s...
    Even though the Los Angeles Rams had their first loss to the undefeated Arizona Cardinals, the Rams remain an NFC playoff favorite in a tough division. Divisional games are always tough, and they’re always unpredictable. So when the Los Angeles Rams lose at home to the Arizona Cardinals 37-20, it’s not something anyone expected — the Rams have been the NFC team pulling playoff bids, not the Cardinals. Even if the betting spread was majorly off this week, the intuition that this Rams team will see the postseason is not: this is still a stacked football team in spite of the loss. In a highly-competitive division, the Rams are still the overall strongest team in the NFC West, a team that will at least snag a wild card slot if not the division title.Rams fans shouldn’t be worried about losing NFC West lead to Cardinals — for nowThe Cardinals may have gotten the win this week, but before the Rams, their three consecutive wins were at the hands of some deeply-flawed NFL teams. The Jaguars hardly count as a...
    LIONEL MESSI’S stats from his first two Paris Saint-Germain games and his last two Barcelona games have been revealed. The Argentina legend made a stunning move from Spain to France this summer when his Nou Camp contract expired. 2Lionel Messi's stats from his last two Barcelona games and first two PSG matches And after playing in PSG’s 1-1 Champions League draw against Club Brugge, Messi has now clocked up two appearances for his new side. But how is the forward getting on compared to his last few games at Barcelona? Ronald Koeman had Messi on the pitch for the full 90 minutes in both of those matches. But at PSG, Messi has only featured for 114 minutes. He has also failed to score or assist in that time, despite scoring two goals for Barca. That means Messi’s expected goals tally in Spain was 1.15, compared with 0.38 in France.

    Fact check: Drug overdose from limited fentanyl contact not possible, experts say The Taliban reportedly beat a United Nations worker trying to reach the Kabul airport A new season marks the start of a new era for the Philadelphia Eagles. Rookie head coach Nick Sirianni and his young coaching staff bring a fresh new enthusiasm to a franchise that finished 4-11-1.  Four years removed from reaching the NFL's pinnacle, the team still rosters key veteran starters that carry the lessons learned from their rapid descent to the bottom of the standings. The Eagles are a team with plenty of question marks and even more to prove. QB Jalen Hurts takes over the offense in his first full season at quarterback. After being decimated by injuries, his offensive line returns looking to prove they can stay healthy. Young playmaking wide receivers DeVonta Smith and Jalen Raegor are eager to justify their first-round status. Factor in a brand new coaching staff and it's safe to say this season can go several different directions. Handicapping teams that carry high variance is always...

    The Elite Eight field is set and betting lines are out for the latest March Madness matchups. The NCAA Tournament is in full swing as the Elite Eight field has been set. The only real long-shot left is Oregon State, which has made an art form out of winning elimination games, while heavy favorites like Gonzaga and Baylor remain in the hunt for a national championship. East Region – No. 11 UCLA vs. No. 1 Michigan Time: 9:57 p.m. ET Venue: Lucas Oil Stadium TV: TBS Line: N/A These teams got here in completely different fashions. Michigan simply dominated from the opening tip against a bigger Florida State team, forcing turnovers and using precision passing to easily win, while UCLA used the Rick Pitino playbook to pull a big upset against the Crimson Tide. The Bruins have played admirably by going from the First Four to the Elite Eight, becoming just the second team ever to do that, but Michigan isn’t as vulnerable as Alabama was to an off-shooting night. The Wolverines are comfortable...
    The Rangers haven’t always played their best while protecting a lead, but it’s an aspect of their game that must improve as they garner more experience doing so. Carrying a 3-2 lead into the third period Tuesday night, the Blueshirts held the Sabres to just five shots, albeit recording just three shots on net themselves in the final 30:28. Defenseman Adam Fox said he believes the Rangers have played a lot smarter than they did earlier in the season, particularly when they have a lead heading into the third. Fox said he considers that to be a sign of growth, taking into account how many times they fell apart in the final 20 minutes earlier this season. “I think we didn’t cheat, we didn’t give them a lot of grade-A’s and limited their chances,” Fox said following the win Tuesday. “We definitely improved, a lot better in holding the lead this game than we had earlier in the year.” Coach David Quinn said he felt the Rangers understood “what we were dealing with going into the third period” and managed...
    PAUL SCHOLES believes Manchester United can be crowned champions of the Premier League but only if they start winning the big games. Despite being the current league leaders, Man Utd have failed to beat any of the 'Big Six' this season. 1Manchester United Paul Scholes doing what he does best in the 99 legends match vs Bayern Munich. And Scholes pointed out that a win over Liverpool this weekend would put an end to that bad spell of results. Talking to ESPN, the legendary midfielder said: "It feels strange to say it but I actually do think United can win the league because it's been a weird season, but it's all about winning the big games now. "They haven't done that yet. People can say they won at Leicester on the final day of the season to qualify for the Champions League but that wasn't a big game like going to City, Liverpool or Chelsea and winning when it matters. "That failure to win big games has to change if they are to win anything but there's no better place...
    Mac Jones had massive shoes to fill in Tuscaloosa. Alabama program great Tua Tagovailoa was gone for the NFL, and stepping in would be the career backup quarterback, Jones. The consensus was straightforward: Jones was no Tagovailoa, and he might not even be a Jalen Hurts.  It’s true that Jones has turned out to be neither of those players. But his play has been nearly as dominant as Tagovailoa at his best, pushing Alabama to an undefeated regular season and a berth in the College Football Playoff once again. Jones has performed so well that both he and his top wide receiver, Devonta Smith, are Heisman Trophy finalists, two of four chosen in the entire country. The 6-3 redshirt junior went from mop-up time QB to first-round NFL Draft prospect. “Mac, for the perseverance,” Alabama offensive coordinator Steve Sarkisian said recently, per 247Sports. “This is a guy who waited his turn, got thrown to the fire late last season, showed some resiliency bouncing back from a couple of interceptions in the Auburn game. And then this offseason came and almost...

    As great as the NFL games were on paper for Week 14, we really only got one incredible contest. The Ravens' dramatic 47-42 victory in Cleveland was a thriller that sits as the clubhouse leader for Game of the Year. The Week 15 slate is significantly less appealing. Each of the four prime-time games -- Saturday night football! Yes! -- features a team with a losing record. In fact, there’s only one game featuring two teams with winning records (Chiefs at Saints). With just three weeks left in the season, look alive, people! Here's the breakdown of this week's Super 6 slate on FOX Bet, where you can win $100,000 this week by correctly picking the winners and margins in these six games: Minnesota Vikings (-3.5) vs. Chicago Bears: A significant line movement occurred here, as the Vikings were giving 6.5 on the look-ahead line. However, after Chicago's convincing victory over Houston and the Vikings' loss in Tampa, the line re-opened at Minnestoa giving 3.5. This is a rematch from a Monday night showdown last month, when Nick Foles couldn’t move the ball (106 yards passing) and the Vikings took advantage of a beat-up Bears defensive front to escape with...
    College football picks against the spread for Week 13’s biggest games, including the Iron Bowl rivalry game between Auburn and Alabama who will be without Nick Saban. This week, there is no “marquee” matchup in college football, but after the Thanksgiving turkey has been cut and eaten and the mashed potatoes and green bean casserole has been put away for leftovers, just about every Top 25 team is facing an underdog looking to make headlines with a major upset. There are some huge rivalry games, like the Iron Bowl and the Oregon-Oregon State rivalry that need a new name after dropping the “Civil War” moniker. No. 9 Georgia (-19.5) at South CarolinaGeorgia was given a lot of flack after they were in the top 10 of the College Football Playoff rankings despite losing to both Florida and Alabama. JT Daniels finally got the start for the Bulldogs after seeing Stetson Bennett and D’Wan Mathis getting snaps after Jamie Newman opted out. He looked good, and now he’s rocketing up draft boards, but the coaching staff still doesn’t seem completely convinced. Something...

    The Yankees and Indians begin their first-round, best-of-three MLB playoff series on Tuesday night (7 p.m., ESPN) in Cleveland. 5 things to know about the Indians 1. Terry Francona is in his eighth year as manager of the Indians, but he’s been away from the team for most of the season. The 61-year-old missed all but 14 games because of gastrointestinal surgery and blood-clotting issues. He managed the first eight games of the season, then returned for six more in August, but has been watching from home since Aug. 21. Sandy Alomar Jr. has filled in for Francona after his longtime bench coach, Brad Mills, opted out of the season for personal reasons. Francona is expected to join the Indians’ postseason bubble, but Alomar will continue to manage the team. 2. In the past 14 months, the Indians have traded away Trevor Bauer, Corey Kluber and Mike Clevinger — arguably their three best pitchers entering 2019 — and still have one of the best starting rotations in baseball. Shane Bieber has emerged as a Cy Young candidate while cancer survivor...
    Getty Mainz supporters could be in for a tough season in 2020-21 with relegation once again looking a strong possibility for Achim Beierlorzer’s side. The team finished just six points off the relegation play-off place last season and a lack of investment in the squad during the transfer window means they could spend another season battling the drop. There is quality in the squad but a lack of experience and strength in depth may prove costly this time around. Mainz possess a strong spine with promising young center-back Jeremiah St. Juste in the heart of the defence, captain Danny Latza in midfield, and Robin Quaison in attack. However, injuries to key players could wreak havoc when it comes to their chances of staying up.Note: Heavy may earn an affiliate commission if you sign up via a link on this pageStarting with the 2020-21 season, anyone in the US can watch every Mainz game live on ESPN+: Get ESPN+ ESPN+ will have live coverage of every Bundesliga match in 20-21, as well as DFL Supercup, Bundesliga 2, Serie A,...
