Eagles Route the Cowboys, 33-10


Rob Carr via Getty Images(ARLINGTON, Texas) -- In a game between two of the top teams in the NFC East, the Philadelphia Eagles proved to be better on Thanksgiving as they easily defeated the Dallas Cowboys 33-10.

The Eagles struck first in the game as quarterback Mark Sanchez commanded the team to a 7-0 lead in their first possession in furious fashion, and never looked back.

Sanchez completed 20 of 29 passes for 217 yards and one touchdown through the air while adding another on the ground. It was his first game of the season without a turnover.

Eagles running back LeSean McCoy had arguably his best game of the season on Thursday, as he carried the ball 25 times for 159 yards and a touchdown.

Cowboys quarterback Tony Romo and running back DeMarco Murray each failed to get into a rhythm during the game. Romo completed 18 of 29 yards for 199 yards and two interceptions. He snapped his streak of 38-straight games with at least one TD pass.

Murray was held to a season-low 73 yards.

With the win, the Eagles now sit at 9-3 on the season and hold sole possession of first place in the NFC East over the Cowboys who fell to 8-4 with the loss.

Lions Defeat the Bears, 34-17


Leon Halip.Getty Images(DETROIT) -- Megatron simply could not be stopped on Thursday as the Detroit Lions improved to 8-4 on the season after taking down the Chicago Bears 34-17.

Johnson dominated the game as he caught 11 passes for 146 yards two touchdowns. He also crossed the 10,000 receiving yards mark for his career, and became the fastest player in NFL history to do so.

"Guys still believe in what we got going here," Johnson said. "We had a good week of practice -- it was a very short week, but we were very detailed in what we did on the field, coaches taking care of us. It's our part to come out here and do our job on the field."

Lions running back Joique Bell also had a great day, as he carried the ball 23 times for 91 yards and two touchdowns. He was the only Lion with a rushing attempt.

The Lions defense also handled the Bears run game. The team carried the ball eight times for a grand total of 13 yards, good for just 1.6 yards per attempt.

Bears quarterback Jay Cutler completed 31 of 48 passes for two touchdowns and two interceptions.

Mark Cuban Suggests Realignment in the NBA


MichaEL Buckner/Getty Images for Reality Rocks(NEW YORK) -- The Western Conference has eight of the top-10 teams in the NBA record-wise, and Dallas Mavericks owner Mark Cuban thinks the league would benefit from realignment.

If Cuban had his way, the San Antonio Spurs, Houston Rockets, and New Orleans Pelicans would move over to the Eastern Conference while the Chicago Bulls, Detroit Pistons, Indiana Pacers, and Milwaukee Bucks would shift over to the Western Conference.

"It's not like you're reducing competition," said Cuban. "You keep Cleveland, Washington and other good teams in the East. It kind of shakes things up in terms of not just interest but also in terms of how people rebuild.

"It just changes things up and it changes the thought process of a lot of teams. It makes both conferences very competitive, at least for the short term and I think, based on the history of the teams, for the long term as well."

Cuban has not discussed his idea with commissioner Adam Silver.

Hornets' Coach Steve Clifford Frustrated with Guard Lance Stephenson


Jed Jacobson/Getty Images(CHARLOTTE, N.C.) -- Charlotte Hornets guard Lance Stephenson has yet to live up to expectations after the team made him their big free agent acquisition over the summer, and his head coach Steve Clifford has admitted as much.

The Hornets signed Stephenson away from the Indiana Pacers after agreeing on a three-year deal worth $27 million. They thought they'd be getting a dynamic guard coming into his prime.

"To be fair, one of the things that's made it more difficult for him is that he came here and people proclaimed him as the next superstar," Clifford said Wednesday. "He's not a star. He's a guy that has talent to become a star. To be a star in this league, you have to do it over years."

So far this season, Stephenson is averaging 9.7 points on .368% shooting, 8.1 rebounds, and 5.1 assists per game.

Clifford decided to sit Stephenson the entire fourth quarter during the team's loss to Portland Trail Blazers for the second consecutive game.

Diamondbacks Sign Yasmany Tomas


Tom Szczerbowski/Getty Images(NEW YORK) -- The Major League Baseball (MLB) hot stove continues to heat up as a report from MLB.com indicates that the Arizona Diamondbacks have reached a deal with Yasmany Tomas.

The Cuban slugger will reportedly sign a six-year contract worth $68.5 million dollars. According to the report, Tomas will have an opt-out clause after the fourth year of the deal.

The 24-year-old outfielder joins a team that had the worst record in baseball last season, 64-98, and struggled with injuries at the position. Both Mark Trumbo and A.J. Pollock missed almost half the season with different injuries in 2014. 

Tomas has spent the last seven years playing for the Havana Industriales and hit .375 with two home runs and five RBIs in the World Baseball Classic.

Pitino Picks Up 700th Career Win


J. Meric/Getty Images(LOUISVILLE, Ky.) -- It wasn't as comfortable a victory as was probably expected, but No. 6 Louisville defeated Cleveland State 45-33 on Wednesday night in what was the 700th career victory for head coach Rick Pitino. 

I hope I'm as lucky to (win) 800, because I remember it as if it was yesterday," said Pitino. "I don't think there's as much significance personally for me, but the significance I take away is that senior class last year, how many games they won. I was the beneficiary today."

The 62-year-old became the 20th coach in Division I history to win 700 career games and ranks sixth among active head coaches. Pitino is now 700-245 in his career, including 346-117 in 14 seasons with the Cardinals (5-0).

Louisville struggled to pull away all night, leading 33-29 with 12 minutes remaining. A combination of poor shooting and missed free throws allowed the Vikings (2-3) to think upset. However, Cleveland State made just two of their final 14 shots and did not score in the final six minutes.

Montrezl Harrell had 15 points and 13 rebounds in the win, Louisville's lowest scoring game since 1997. The Vikings were paced by Trey Lewis' 24 points.

Butler Knocks Off (5) North Carolina


Michael Hickey/Getty Images(PARADISE ISLAND, Bahamas) -- In the semifinals of the Battle 4 Atlantis, the Butler Bulldogs knocked off fifth-ranked North Carolina Wednesday night, 74-66, one of the bigger upsets in the first month of the college basketball season.

"This is a proud program with tremendous heritage and we're trying to do the very best with what's in front of us," said Butler's interim head coach Chris Holtmann.

It was not an easy task for Butler (4-0) who dominated the backboards, outrebounding the Tarheels (3-1) 57-40, grabbing 29 offensive rebounds in the process. That helped the Bulldogs overcome an abysmal shooting night. Butler was just 22-of-72 (30.6%) from the floor, shooting just 7 percent in the final eight minutes of regulation.

However, the Bulldogs had already built up a solid lead and were able to hold off UNC. It was a decisive 16-4 run in the second half that turned a 43-41 deficit into a 59-45 lead. Alex Barlow and Kelan Martin each had 17 points for Butler in the win.

It is the second time in the last three seasons that Butler has beat a top-10 ranked North Carolina squad. They also pulled the upset in 2012 at the Maui Invitational.

(3) Arizona Wins Maui Invitational


Christian Petersen/Getty Images(MAUI, Hawai'i) -- The Arizona Wildcats used 18 points and nine rebounds from freshman Stanley Johnson to defeat San Diego State 61-59 and win the Maui Invitational on Wednesday. It was the 33rd straight non-conference win for the third-ranked Wildcats (6-0), and third win over the Aztecs (5-1) in the last two seasons.

"We have a lot of guys who don't like losing here and I'm the same way," said Johnson. His five offensive rebounds helped Arizona net 13 points off second chances.

Both teams came out shooting very strong, with 15th-rated San Diego State making 10 of 19 shots in the first half. The Wildcats were able to keep pace, going 10-for-33, and holding a 32-31 lead at halftime.

In the second half, both squads continued the high-octane pace but neither could gain a strong advantage. That changed as Arizona's defense began to clamp down, and the offense kept exploding. With less than eight minutes remaining, Kaleb Tarczewski forced a steal that resulted in T.J. McConnell's three-point shot, giving the Wildcats a 50-48 lead.

The Aztecs would not be able to recover as Arizona hit their free throws down the stretch and prevented a comeback. San Diego State was led by 14 points each from Trey Kell and Winston Shepard. It is the second Maui Invitational title for Arizona after also winning the in-season tournament in 2000.
