Chelsea toppled Bournemouth, 3-0, on Boxing Day, which was expected. After all, the Blues are expected to win most every match they play right now, and they’ve done just that in their last 12 contests.
With Chelsea’s win, they have now won 12 straight in the Premier League. That’s not only a club record — it’s just two short of the league record set by Arsenal in 2001/02 and again in 2002/03.
Antonio Conte has been loath to talk about the record, but Gary Cahill admitted it’s something that’s been on his mind, even if the team doesn’t…

The Houston Rockets will get a chance to pad their already gaudy 3-point-shooting numbers Wednesday night when they run into one of the league’s weakest defensive teams, the Phoenix Suns, for the first time this season.
The Rockets are shooting 3’s at a record-setting pace this season, having already attempted 1,128. They’ve made 423, which already is approaching some teams’ season total from last year.
The scary part is the Rockets have posted those numbers despite not having seen the Suns yet.
Phoenix has allowed 3-pointers to be made at a 38.7-percent rate, the second-highest in the league.
The game can be seen on FOX Sports Arizona and FOX Sports Go, starting at 6:30 p.m.
While the sight of the Suns should bring smiles to the Rockets, so should their Talking Stick Resort Arena, where Houston has prevailed in its last five visits.
In fact, last year’s season series between the Rockets and Suns was dominated by the road team. After the Rockets recorded 111-105 and 116-100 wins at Phoenix, the Suns finished off the three-game series with a…

MINNEAPOLIS — The Dallas Cowboys got a critical glimpse of what’s coming in the near future during their 17-15 win over Minnesota. This was a game that required Dallas to do things that haven’t been a big part of its season thus far: playing through mistakes, surviving without contributions from key players, dealing with costly penalties in crucial situations. It’s easy to think the Cowboys merely stole a victory when an upset seemed quite possible. It’s more important to realize that these are the kinds of games they’ll be playing in January, so it’s best to get accustomed to them in December.
Simply put, this was a contest the Cowboys should’ve lost. The Vikings controlled the Dallas offense for most of the contest and Minnesota also won the turnover battle. The raucous crowd inside U.S. Bank Stadium also kept the pressure on Dallas throughout the entire game. For the first time in weeks, it felt as if the Cowboys didn’t have immediate answers for the challenges they faced on nearly every series.
The most impressive part about Thursday night, however, is that Dallas didn’t quiver in the face of such adversity. It simply waited for the right opportunities and then pounced on them to improve to 11-1.
“This was a tough night and I like to use the word ‘fight’ as much as ‘resilience,’” Cowboys coach Jason Garrett said. “We just kept battling. We kept fighting. Individually, the units came back to overcome different things. We kept picking each other up. It’s the foundation of what we try to do each and every day with the Cowboys and that (approach) was on display.”
This isn’t the first time the Cowboys have won a tight game. They beat the Steelers in Pittsburgh in one of the most entertaining contests of the season — a 35-30 win — and they survived the Philadelphia Eagles at home when rookie quarterback Dak Prescott rallied his team to a 29-23 overtime victory after playing poorly for more than three quarters. So they’ve already shown they can handle the heat that swells in high-pressure situations. They also won those games largely because their stars found ways to dominate.
That was not the case against the Vikings. Prescott only threw for 139 yards and was sacked him three times. Star running back Ezekiel Elliott gained 86 yards but 30 came on one carry. Wide receiver Dez Bryant produced 84 receiving yards — including a 56-yard catch that set up his team’s first touchdown — but tight end Jason Witten didn’t catch a pass. Dallas struggled on third downs (1 for 9), in the turnover battle (they lost 2-1) and with penalties (10 for 78 yards).
Like every team, the Cowboys were due to have a game like this. What they should take away from it is that teams that play deep into January learn how to win on their worst days. The Cowboys could’ve had a ready-made excuse for their sloppiness, that being they were playing…

The next thing anyone knows, the Warriors are 16-2. They have run off 12 victories in a row. They have a double-digit win streak for the fourth season in a row, they have the best offensive rating in the league by a wide margin, and have an improving defense, all while playing more times on the road (10) than at home (eight).
On the other hand, they’re on pace to only win 73 games, just like a season ago, so there is the obvious question surrounding coach Steve Kerr’s job security. Indications are that Kerr will survive to work Friday (AEDT) against the Rockets at Oracle Arena and probably even clear into next week, although there is no confirmation from the nonsense factory that gave oxygen to Klay Thompson trade rumors a couple weeks ago. (Obviously the front office did salary-cap gymnastics in the summer to sign Kevin Durant just to break the team up after 12 or 15 games.)
The actual debate, minus sarcasm, is whether 16-2 is more impressive than 18-0 last season, en route to a record 24-0 opening, because that team was established and mostly settled beyond the health issues that forced Kerr’s absence and this one is anything but. Durant is here. Two starters from back-to-back Western Conference champions, Andrew Bogut and Harrison Barnes, are not. The bench is different. A rookie second-round pick, Patrick McCaw, is averaging 13.9 minutes. And yet, 16-2, 12 in a row, top of the West.
While the start to 2015-16 probably holds an edge over its time-travel opponent — the defense was better back in the day, the way the Warriors owned opponents felt a lot more bug-vs.-windshield — this progress is about the best-case scenario as the 2016-17 season approaches the quarter pole. It may even be better than best case, a heady statement considering the expectations for the season.
“If I had to be 100 percent honest with you, I think we’re ahead of where I thought we would be right now,” All-Star Draymond Green said. “I just thought it would take a little longer to adjust to everything and yet everything’s coming together. There will be times when it doesn’t look like we’re together and of course we’ll have that one game where we suck and everybody will say, ‘Oh, man. It’s not working.’ Even if it came after 20 straight wins it’ll be like, ‘Aw, man….
