CLEVELAND -- Random items on the Cavaliers, who have won 11 of 14 since their 5-7 start:
1. As reported, the Cavs had an interest in Memphis Grizzlies center/forward Kosta Koufos, the former Ohio State star and Canton GlenOak product. But the Grizzlies won't just give him away, as Koufos is a valuable big off the bench for a winning team. Right now, it appears the Cavs don't have...
The stakes are clear for the Bengals heading into Monday night's game against Denver: win and they can make plans to be practicing after the New Year for a fourth straight season. Lose and they head to Pittsburgh for the regular season finale in what could be an all-or-nothing game for their postseason chances.
All the Bengals have to do is find a way to beat Peyton Manning for the...
CHARLOTTE - Considering where the Cleveland Browns have been, you'd have signed up for 7-9 in 2014, right? Like, in an instant?
Either way, the Browns won games in October and November. A week ago is an eternity in the ever-changing NFL, though, and another Browns season has reached a miserable December. It happens. No one with realistic expectations, in or out of the building, expected...

Pekka Rinne of the Nashville Predators leads the NHL in victories.
No goaltender has won more games in December than Sergei Bobrovsky of the Columbus Blue Jackets.
The Blue Jackets haven't suffered a regulation defeat since losing to the Predators to close out November, and these goalies figure to oppose each other Monday night in Columbus.
Nashville (21-8-2) has been one of the...
Twenty-three days ago, the prospects looked bleak for the Blue Jackets. They were dead last in the NHL with a record of 6-15-2 and a measly 14 points. Having suffered through two losing streaks of nine and six games, respectively, the mood surrounding the club matched the transition from autumn to winter.
They had lost 154 man games due to injury and speculation turned to who might...
The Bengals regular season finale at Pittsburgh next Sunday has been moved from a 1 p.m. kickoff to Sunday Night Football. The Bengals (9-4-1) host Denver (11-3) Monday night but no matter the result, next Sunday's game will determine the champion of the AFC North division.
The NFL announced the move as part of its flex scheduling during the halftime of Sunday night's...
CLEVELAND -- Random dribbles from the Cavaliers' 105-91 victory over the visiting Memphis Grizzlies on Sunday:
1. Let's start with the fact the Grizzlies didn't have two key starters in forward Zach Randolph and swingman Tony Allen, both injured. And we're starting there because I'm sure anyone who followed this game will immediately mention it. But truth is, the Cavs didn't care...
CHARLOTTE -- As the Cleveland Browns season spins to another disappointing finish, the franchise's never-ending quarterback carousel spins again.

Rookie Johnny Manziel made his second start Sunday vs. the Carolina Panthers but didn't make it out of the first half. Manziel said he felt what he thought was a cramp while making...
CLEVELAND (AP) -- LeBron James had 25 points and 11 assists, Dion Waiters scored 13 of his 21 points in the fourth quarter and the Cleveland Cavaliers handled one of the Western Conference's best teams, beating the Memphis Grizzlies 105-91 on Sunday.
James scored 16 in the second half and the Cavs shot a season-best 61 percent from the field to improve to just 3-6 against West teams...
CHARLOTTE -- There were two very strange plays in the Browns loss to the Panthers. One play, particularly was a big play in the game.
Defensive lineman Billy Winn had the only interception for the Browns in the third quarter on a pass after Karlos Dansby grabbed Cam Newton's arm.
Winn made a diving catch and while on the ground, handed off to Jordan Poyer, who ran for a touchdown...
CHARLOTTE -- Carolina Panthers quarterback Cam Newton said his counterpart Sunday, Cleveland Browns rookie Johnny Manziel, "has a lot to learn."
Newton also said Manziel deserves better than the reaction Newton said he heard from some fans when Manziel left Sunday's game with 1:49 left in the first half after suffering a hamstring injury.
Newton said he heard fans cheering as Manziel...

When the Ohio State Buckeyes walked into practice on Sunday they had a big surprise waiting for them, it was Santa Claus and his elves!
A few of the strength and conditioning coaches thought it would be a good idea to send the Buckeyes off on their four-day holiday break with a little Christmas cheer.
It sure looks like the elves have some put on some muscle this offseason, and apparently...
CHARLOTTE-- The Browns lost one key player on defense, but get another one back.
The Browns will be without Pro Bowl cornerback Joe Haden, who bruised his shoulder in last week's loss to the Bengals.
However, they will regain the services of one of their best defensive players in Karlos Dansby.
Dansby had missed four games with a sprained knee suffered against the Texans. Dansby...

If the Bengals are going to clinch a playoff spot this week they'll have to do their own dirty work.
San Diego's comeback from a 21-0 deficit at San Francisco Saturday night for a 38-35 win in overtime against the 49ers means the only way the Bengals clinch a fourth straight postseason berth in Week 16 is by beating Denver Monday night at Paul Brown Stadium.
A win over the Broncos...
