Curry Scores 15K Points, Saints Ugly Win Over Panthers, Payton/Brees Make History, Stanford’s Love Won’t Play In Bowl


Golden State Warriors’ Steph Curry only needed 10 more points on Monday night to add yet another accolade to his list of accomplishments. In a win over the Memphis Grizzlies, Curry became the fifth player in Warriors history to score 15,000 regular season points. He joins Wilt Chamberlain, Rick Barry, Chris Mullin, and Paul Arizin. Warriors 110, Grizzlies 93.


It wasn’t pretty, but the New Orleans Saints beat the Carolina Panthers on Monday night to put them one win away from securing the # 1 spot in the NFC playoffs. The Saints had to rely on their defense and many mistakes from the Panthers to pull out the win, but Saints coach Sean Payton and quarterback Drew Brees did make history winning their 117th game together and passing Miami’s Don Shula and Dan Marino. Only Bill Belichick and Tom Brady have more regular season wins together (205).

Stanford University’s star running back Bryce Love announced he will not play in the team’s bowl game against Pittsburgh on New Year’s Eve because he wants to prepare for the NFL draft. Love, runner-up for the Heisman Trophy in 2017,  could have entered the draft after his junior year but decided to return to Stanford. He dealt with a few injuries this season but says he’s ready to enter the NFL. In a heartfelt letter he shared on Twitter, he said, “God has blessed me with an incredible opportunity to play the sport I love at the highest level — it is a surreal feeling to be on the cusp of seeing my dream come true. I am completely devoted to this next chapter of my career, and I will always keep the Stanford community, my family and my faith by my side throughout.”
