#SportsReport: NBA Action On Christmas

Dec 25, 2018

Dwayne Harris returned a punt 99 yards for a touchdown after Denver failed to down it, and the Raiders gave their fans plenty to celebrate in their possible final game in Oakland, beating the Broncos 27-14 last night. Oakland native Doug Martin rushed for 107 yards and a score and Jalen Richard also ran for a touchdown for the Raiders. The Raiders are set to move to Las Vegas in 2020 and it's not clear where they will play next year.

Seattle Seahawks coach Pete Carroll is sticking around through the 2021 season after signing a three-year contract extension.

LeBron James says he's sorry for posting a lyric that referenced "Jewish money." The Los Angeles Lakers star says he simply got caught up in the music, thought the lyric was a "compliment" and offers "apologies, for sure." The lyric comes from the song "ASMR" by rapper 21 Savage.

James will be in action today as the Lakers take on the Golden State Warriors at 8 p.m.

Other NBA action on this Christmas Day: The Milwaukee Bucks are at the Garden to face the Knicks at noon. The Thunder take on the Rockets at 3. Boston hosts Philadelphia at 5:30, and the Jazz are home to face the Trail Blazers at 10:30 p.m.

In college basketball, Duke Duke is back atop The Associated Press Top 25. The Blue Devils received 35 of 64 first-place votes  after previous No. 1 Kansas lost at Arizona State. Duke is followed by Michigan, Tennessee, Virginia and Kansas. Nevada, Gonzaga, Michigan State, Florida State and Virginia Tech round out the top 10.
