San Antonio Spurs big man Pau Gasol suffered a fluke injury during warm-ups Thursday night. The Nuggets have rattled off three straight victories, with wins over the Pacers, Magic and at the Lakers.

Said his coach, Brad Stevens: "It says a lot about him and the level he's playing at". It wasn't about matchups. Westbrook, much like his fellow guard, needs to do just about everything to secure his team's victories.

That's big, but only about half the size of Obama's inauguration in 2009. Mike Pence, who will be sworn in as vice president, told reporters that the day would be "humbling and moving".

The two-time major victor from Germany mixed eight birdies - three coming on his final three holes - with two bogeys for his 66, his ...
