CHICAGO - Steve Kerr called himself the luckiest coach in the NBA. Zack Greinke Jersey .In his first coaching job, his Golden State Warriors have set a franchise record with their 12th straight victory and improved to a league-best 10-1 on the road.Theyre easy to coach. Theyre really talented. Theyre unselfish, Kerr said. Im just lucky.Draymond Green scored a career-high 31 points and the Warriors beat the Chicago Bulls 112-102 on Saturday night. Klay Thompson added 24 points for the Warriors, who extended their league-best record to 17-2.Jimmy Butler led the Bulls (12-8) with 24 points. Pau Gasol added 22 points and 20 rebounds.The Warriors previously won a franchise-record 11 straight games from Dec. 29, 1971-Jan. 22, 1972.Youre talking about a franchise that was historically known for losing, Green said. A new ownership group came in, and it completely changes the entire organization. Its a great feeling. We feel like we have a lot left in the tank.The Bulls fell to just 2-5 at home.The Warriors had lost five straight and 11 of 12 and were 6-28 over 35 years in Chicago.Its been miserable, said Stephen Curry, who earned his first victory at the United Center. Weve not only lost, but weve gotten beaten pretty bad here.Thompson and Green hit back-to-back 3-pointers to give the Warriors a 95-87 lead with 6:25 remaining. Green made another 3 and hit a jumper to extend the lead to 103-90 with 3:11 left.Gasol tipped in a basket to cut the lead to 107-100 with 31.5 seconds left, but Curry went 5 of 6 at the free throw line in the final seconds.Green shot 7 for 13 from 3-point range.We made a conscious effort of getting Curry out of the game, but we left Green open a lot of the time, Gasol said. He got going and he shot 13 3s — which is a lot of 3s — and most of them were uncontested.Greens previous career high was 24 points against the Los Angeles Clippers on Nov. 5. He entered Saturday averaging 12.5 points.Hes given us a new dimension with his 3-point shooting, Kerr said.Curry had 19 points to give him double-figure scoring in 18 of 19 games. Harrison Barnes and Marreese Speights added 11 points apiece for the Warriors, who shot 12 of 30 from 3-point range and had 28 fast-break points to the Bulls 13.Joakim Noah scored 16 points and Taj Gibson, back after missing six games with an ankle injury, added 12 for the Bulls, who committed 22 turnovers. Gasol recorded his sixth straight double-double.Theyre defending better, Gasol said about the Warriors. They understand that its a key piece of being a great team.TIP-INSWarriors: F David Lee (hamstring) has missed all but one game yet is expected to return to action next week. .Kerr was the second coach in NBA history to begin his career with a 16-2 record or better. The Syracuse Nationals Al Cervi went 18-2 before losing in 1949.Bulls: F Doug McDermott (knee) has missed three straight games. Coach Tom Thibodeau said McDermotts knee flared up during Saturdays shootaround.MAKING A STATEMENTDuring warmups, Bulls guard Derrick Rose wore a black I Cant Breathe T-shirt, referring to a New York man who died July 17 after a police officer placed him in a chokehold when he was being arrested for selling loose, untaxed cigarettes. A videotape recording of the arrest showed Eric Garner gasping, I cant breathe during the fatal encounter. Thousands around the country have protested the grand jury decision to not indict the officer.Rose did not speak to reporters after the game. He finished with nine points, six assists and four rebounds.I respect Derrick a lot, Noah said. He definitely is making a statement by wearing it. Thats my guy.BACK AGAINKerr, who won three NBA titles as a Bulls player, enjoyed his return to Chicago. He chatted with former teammate Scottie Pippen.Really fun to come in and get a win, Kerr said.UP NEXTWarriors: Visit Minnesota on Monday.Bulls: Host Brooklyn on Wednesday. Luis Gonzalez Jersey . -- The Minnesota Vikings have signed Jerome Simpson, the former Cincinnati Bengals wide receiver recently convicted on a felony drug charge. Custom Arizona Diamondbacks Jerseys . “Momentum is only as good as the next days starter,” the long-time Baltimore Orioles manager famously quipped. .Just like old times.Only this time, just one got to enjoy a victory.James return to Miami as an opponent was a success — for the Heat, that is. Wade scored 24 of his 31 points in the first half, Luol Deng had 25 points and dogged James defensively all night, and the Heat beat the Cleveland Cavaliers 101-91 in a hyped Christmas matchup Thursday.Scott Cullen takes a look at the stories from October 25th thorugh the 31st in the NHL, including the Kings cap concerns, health issues for the Columbus Blue Jackets, the first suspensions of the year and more. Voynov Suspension The suspension itself goes back to October 20, after he was arrested for assault after an alleged domestic violence incident and Voynov has remained out of the lineup, with pay, while that case is investigated. His first scheduled court date is December 1. The domestic violence issue is, of course, very serious and theres no reason to have any sympathy for Voynov if he has done what hes been accused of. Where this becomes interesting, from a competitive aspect in the NHL, is how the fallout has left Voynovs team, Los Angeles Kings, jammed up against the salary cap less than a month into the season. According to Cap Geek, the Kings currently have just over $525,000 in available cap space, so when star centre Anze Kopitar got hurt, the Kings didnt have enough room to add a player from the AHL for Tuesdays game in Philadelphia so, in their ninth game of the season, the Kings dressed 19 players instead of the usual 20. They have since brought up winger David Van Der Gulik, a 31-year-old who has played 49 career NHL games and makes a pro-rated portion of $550,000 when hes in the NHL, on an emergency basis. Most teams that are up against the cap can gain relief with a player on long-term injured reserve, but that option isnt available to the Kings as it pertains to Voynov, so theyve been seeking some form of help from the league. According to the TSN Insiders, the hang up comes from the NHLPA, that isnt inclined to give cap relief because that will only lead to higher escrow payments for its membership. Its one thing to say that a team should leave itself some cushion to prepare for unexpected occurrences, but when its a $4-million cap hit that cant play, yet isnt suspended without pay, then it can put a team in a real bind. Olli Maatta Second-year Penguins defenceman Olli Maatta is facing surgery to remove a likely-cancerous tumour in his neck, with the expectation that he should make a full recovery and miss about four weeks of action following the surgery. The 20-year-old was a first-round pick, 22nd overall, in 2012, and is playing a top-four role on the Pittsburgh blueline, putting up six points in nine games while averaging 20:09 of ice time. Injury news happens every day in the NHL, but getting this kind of news out of the blue is more shocking. Hopefully, the early detection will allow for a smooth recovery for a promising young player. Blue Jackets Injuries Injuries are part of the game etc. etc., but come on. The Columbus Blue Jackets are currently missing: right winger Nathan Horton, left wingers Boone Jenner, Nick Foligno and Matt Calvert, centres Brandon Dubinsky, Mark Letestu and Artem Anisimov, defenceman James Wisniewski and goaltender Sergei Bobrovsky. Nine injured players at the same time is crazy. That all of the forwards could qualify as top-nine-calibre forwards along with a top pair defenceman and their starting goalie is an impossibly bad run of luck. What are they left with? Ryan Johansen, Scott Hartnell and Cam Atkinson are bona fide NHLers on the first line, but then its rookies Alexander Wennberg and Marko Dano along with journeymen Jack Skille, Adam Cracknell, Corey Tropp and enforder Jared Boll. Add in AHL call-ups Brian Gibbons, Michael Chaput and Sean Collins and -- voila -- theres 12 forwards for a team playing in the NHL right now. Get healthy Jackets. The Race for McDavid/Eichel A story that is going to linger over the entire season -- the peril of having spectacular talent available at the top of 2015 NHL Draft -- but its also notable because there are two teams that are decidely ahead of the rest in the race to the bottom. While winless (0-6-2) Carolina has the leagues worst record, theyve gone through some injuries and as they get healthier, they dont figure to be as bad as the Buffalo Sabres. While the Sabres have somehow managed to win a couple games, going 2-8-1, their performance has them ticketed for a likely last-place finish. Its all well and good to put a bad team in position to draft a franchise-changing talent, but there is only a 20% chance that the worst teamm ends up with the No. Deven Marrero Jersey. 1 pick and, the way the Sabres have started this season, they are going to have a long way to climb, even if they get their saviour. The Role of Replay There have already been four goals scored on plays that were offside and now phantom penalties are being handed out, as Detroits Luke Glendening was charged with tripping Capitals goaltender Braden Holtby when, quite clearly, he did not. Can improved replay procedures avoid these missteps in the future? Suspensions The NHL season got off to a relatively peaceful start, a couple weeks with nary a concern for the Department of Player Safety. Those sweet days of innocence are gone now, as Sharks enforcer John Scott got handed a couple of games for coming off the bench and getting into a fight with Ducks tough guy Tim Jackman, then Rangers defenceman John Moore got five games for a high hit on Wild centre Erik Haula. Not only that, but Chris Kreider, Nikolay Kulemin, Corey Tropp and Eric Gryba all managed to avoid supplemental discipline for questionable hits in the past week and Alex Burrows has a hearing lined up for his late hit on Canadiens defenceman Alexei Emelin Thursday night. Looks like the NHL is back to business as usual. Marian Hossa records his 1000th career point in Ottawa That Hossa could reach this milestone in the city where he started his NHL career, in 1997-98, is something extra special for a player who has seen quite a change in his reputation over the past 17 years. Early in his career, he was dogged by the Senators playoff shortcomings, even taking the blame early on for his lack of production in the postseason, but Hossa has become one of the premier two-way wingers in hockey. He has played a prominent role on a team that reached the Conference Final six times in his career. Hes won two Stanley Cups and, at 35, remains an elite winger in part because he still backchecks like hes trying to earn a spot in the lineup. In any case, its nice for Hossa to reach a scoring milestone, but his game is about so much more than putting up points; thats what ultimately makes him so valuable. Rangers score five in the third vs. Wild The Minnesota Wild have been a dominant team early in this season, owning the leagues best possession numbers, and they appeared well on their way to an impressive road win Monday at Madison Square Garden before the Rangers scored five goals in the third period, turning a 3-0 Wild lead into a 5-4 Rangers win. It shouldnt be a long-term issue for the Wild, but it was a notable blip in an otherwise sensational start to the season, one that is pushing Minnesota among the top contenders in the Western Conference. Devils snap 18-game shootout losing streak Considering that the shootout is basically a coin flip, its outrageous that the Devils somehow lost 18 straight. Of course, the player to put them over the top Thursday nigth against Winnipeg was Jacob Josefson, a forward who has eight goals in 122 career games. Ovechkin Slump I wrote about Ovechkin going scoreless in five games, for the first time in his career, and the bottom line is that hes actually playing very well right now. The points arent there and thats notable for a player that has 820 points in 688 career games -- his 1.19 points per game ranks third among active players, behind Sidney Crosby (1.40) and Evgeni Malkin (1.22) -- so its going to be interesting to see when Ovechkin actually snaps out of his drought. And a bonus one... Gordie Howe When word came that Mr. Hockey suffered a serious stroke this week, it brought back memories for many hockey fans, myself included. The second NHL game I saw in my life was in the Montreal Forum, March 22, 1980, when my Dad took me to see the Habs and the Hartford Whalers, just so I could say that I got to see Gordie Howe play. Thanks for that, Dad. I remember more about Whalers centre Mike Rogers scoring from centre ice on Bunny Larocque that night, but having read about Howe at his best, when he was a first or second-team all-star year after year after year, there is a feeling of mortality that sweeps over when inevitable health issues catch up to an 86-year-old man, even one that appeared superhuman for so long.
