Cleveland superstar LeBron James posted his 40th career triple-double -- and his first this season -- to lead the Cavaliers to a 120-100 NBA win over the reeling Sacramento KingsCleveland superstar LeBron James posted his 40th career triple-double -- and his first this season -- to lead the Cavaliers to a 120-100 NBA win over the reeling Sacramento Kings. James had 21 points, 10 rebounds and 10 assists and teammate Kyrie Irving added 32 points and 12 assists to pile on the misery for the Kings, who have lost four straight and eight of their last nine. Sacramento coach George Karl reportedly could be fired before next weekend's All-Star break.


NBA: New Orleans Pelicans at Minnesota Timberwolves(The Sports Xchange) - The New Orleans Pelicans started their Mardi Gras celebration a few hours early, snapping a four-game losing streak by blitzing the Minnesota Timberwolves 116-102 on Monday. Forward Anthony Davis led the way with 27 points on 13-of-22 shooting as the Pelicans blew open a close game in the second quarter and never looked back. Guard Jrue Holiday came off the bench to add 27 points for the Pelicans.


NBA: Toronto Raptors at Detroit Pistons(The Sports Xchange) - Andre Drummond's length-of-the-court heave could have thrown the streaking Toronto Raptors for a loop. Unfazed by Drummond's improbable 71-foot 3-pointer at the end of the third quarter, the Raptors outscored the Pistons 29-13 during the next 8:34 and pulled away to a 103-89 victory Monday at The Palace. "That's why we've gotten into this little streak, into a rhythm, because we know what we need to do." Small forward Terrence Ross scored 18 points off the bench for Toronto (35-16), while Lowry's backcourt partner, shooting guard DeMar DeRozan, added 17 points, seven rebounds and six assists.


NFL: Super Bowl 50-Carolina Panthers vs Denver Broncos(Reuters) - Gamblers wagered a record $132.5 million at Nevada casinos on Super Bowl 50 with an upset win for the Denver Broncos over the Carolina Panthers giving sportsbooks their highest profit in two years on the NFL showpiece. Unaudited figures showed the value of bets made in Nevada's 194 sports books easily surpassed the previous high of $119.4 million bet on the Super Bowl two years ago, the Nevada Gaming Control Board said on Monday.


Denver Bronco Danny Trevathan celebrates during Super Bowl 50 against the Carolina Panthers at Levi's Stadium in Santa Clara, California, on February 7, 2016The Denver Broncos' 24-10 Super Bowl victory over the Carolina Panthers drew some 111.9 million viewers to make it the third most watched show in US television history, Nielsen said Monday. The viewership tracker said preliminary data showed the 50th edition of the NFL's championship extravaganza was viewed in an average of 54.3 million homes. The huge amount of viewers placed it just behind the 114.4 million who watched Tom Brady and the New England Patriots stun the Seattle Seahawks in last year's Super Bowl and the 112.2 million audience that tuned in during Seattle's blowout win over Denver in the 2014 Super Bowl.

Press briefing on the Zika virus at the White House in WashingtonBy Roberta Rampton and Ben Hirschler WASHINGTON/LONDON (Reuters) - President Barack Obama will ask the U.S. Congress for more than $1.8 billion in emergency funds to fight Zika at home and abroad and pursue a vaccine, the White House said on Monday, but he added there is no reason to panic over the mosquito-borne virus. Zika, spreading rapidly in South and Central America and the Caribbean, has been linked to severe birth defects in Brazil, and public health officials' concern is focused on pregnant women and women who may become pregnant. Obama's request to Congress includes $200 million for research, development and commercialization of new vaccines and diagnostic tests for the virus.

The NSA said the reorganization, known as “NSA21,” or NSA in the 21st century, will take two years to complete, well into the first term of whoever is elected president in November. A review board appointed by President Barack Obama recommended in December 2013 that the NSA concentrate solely on foreign intelligence gathering.


By Jon Herskovitz AUSTIN, Texas (Reuters) - A U.S. judge denied for the second time a request by Texas to bar relief agencies from bringing Syrian refugees into the state, a decision that could have a bearing on the attempts of 30 other governors to block refugees from their states. U.S. District Judge David Godbey said the Republican leaders who have fought the resettlement have not shown Texas would suffer irreparable harm. The same judge rejected in December the state's request for a restraining order saying the evidence presented was "largely speculative hearsay." "The Court does not deny that the Syrian refugees pose some risk.
