The Bears made official the signing of linebacker Kasim Edebali, which was reported earlier Thursday. They also signed linebacker Josh Woods.
Chicago waived defensive back Tyrin Holloway and wide receiver Shaq Roland in corresponding moves.
If you’re into helter skelter, the Pelicans are the team for you. More than simply Davis’ dominance since Cousins went down, New Orleans has ramped up the speed at which it plays, ranking first in pace and averaging more miles per hour on offense than any other playoff team.
The Pelicans find a way to beat Portland. Let’s be real: When Cousins tore his Achilles, the injury figured to rip New Orleans’ playoff chances to shreds. But Alvin Gentry’s team persevered. Even when the team hit a four-game slide in late March that threatened their playoff chances, New Orleans bounced back by winning the next four games. Every team in the West not playing Houston or Golden State in the first round will feel like it can advance after basically playing playoff-like games down the stretch just to get in. New Orleans has a chance to advance with Davis on its side.
And the other Randy Moss is very familiar with the Randy Moss references. At the outset of the segment, Randy Moss explained the only time he met Randy Moss. Which just so happened to be the day when Randy Moss complained loudly about the food being served to Vikings players, saying that he wouldn’t feed it to his dog.
The other Randy Moss then spent some time talking about the Belmont Stakes, along with an illuminating explanation regarding whether Justify’s pair of wins on sloppy tracks will make it harder for him — or for his opponents — to run the third leg of the Triple Crown, Saturday on NBC.
Leading Golden State by eight points with 4:44 left to play, the Spurs watched Kevin Durant go off for 15 of his game-high 37 points in the fourth quarter as the Warriors rallied to a 110-107 victory. The fact that Stephen Curry left the game in the first half with an ankle injury only amplified frustrations for San Antonio, which has become accustomed to blowing prime opportunities this season due to shoddy clutch-time performances. The Spurs have missed Leonard’s ability to close games.
The Spurs still have a superstar stopper, and it is not Kawhi Leonard. Among 212 players to face at least 30 drives against 2018 All-Stars, Kyle Anderson allows the third fewest points per chance on drives, at 0.72.
