INDIANAPOLIS (AP) — Lance Stephenson shook his head in disbelief. All-Star starter Paul George repeatedly urged his Indiana teammates to get going, and All-Star center Roy Hibbert sat speechless on the bench during the final 30 minutes on the game.

"I don't think it's acceptable for any of us in our organization...

AUGUSTA, Ga. (AP) — The first full day at the Masters turned out to be a short one Monday.

For Williams, there's no place better to start fresh than in his hometown after being acquired by the Buffalo Bills in a trade with Tampa Bay on Friday.
