Mohali: India bowled with a lot of perseverance to restrict England to 268 for 8 despite a defiant 89 from Jonny Bairstow on the first day of the third cricket Test in Mohali on Saturday.

Russell Westbrook has fifth straight triple-double, most since Michael Jordan in 1989 Russell Westbrook has been stuffing the stat sheet, and now he’s making history. The Thunder guard posted his fifth straight triple-double Sunday, becoming the first NBA player to do so since Michael Jordan in 1989. Jordan notched seven straight that season, tying him with Oscar Robertson (1961) for the NBA’s second-longest triple-double streak. Wilt Chamberlain set the record with nine straight in 1968. Westbrook had 28 points, 17 rebounds and 12 assists in a 101-92 win over the Pelicans. (He actually posted something of a quadruple-double, given his 10 turnovers.) https://twitter.com/BallUpNBA/status/805601179585675265 The Thunder has won each of the five games in the streak and is 8-2 this season when Westbrook has recorded a triple-double. His total of 10 is nearly as many as the rest...

Jackson was suspended Tuesday for the final four regular-season games for violating the league's policy on performance-enhancing substances. Jackson will be eligible to return on Jan. 2, the day after the regular season ends. The 6-foot-2, 242-pound Rhodes, 24, spent most of the season on the Colts' practice squad since signing with the team on Oct. 5.

Rhodes originally signed with the Bucs as an undrafted free agent on May 2. Collegiately, Rhodes started 45 of 47 games at William Mary and finished with 341 tackles, 20 tackles for loss...

Jaguars' defense has been bright spot in dark season JACKSONVILLE, Fla. (AP) - The Jacksonville Jaguars have a bright spot in the franchise’s darkest season. Coach Gus Bradley’s defense ranks fourth in the NFL in yards allowed and has been at its best the last five weeks. The unit has surrendered 258 yards a game over the last five weeks and given the Jaguars (2-10) a chance to win each time out. “We’re becoming the defense that we’re supposed to be,” defensive tackle Malik Jackson said Wednesday. It clearly hasn’t been enough since Jacksonville has lost seven in a row heading into Sunday’s game against Minnesota (6-6), which has dropped six of seven . But it’s surely something for owner Shad Khan and general manager Dave Caldwell to consider when they start making moves at the...
