Between Booker's late-game heroics, a whopping 19 triples, Ayton's solid debut, a few timely daggers from Josh Jackson and steady production from T.J. Phoenix has won six straight against Dallas, sweeping the three games last season, when the Suns won a league-worst 21. Warren, Phoenix looked like a competent team for the first time in years.

The biggest spotlight shone on the matchup in Phoenix, where number one pick Deandre Ayton debuted for the Suns against the Dallas Mavericks and number three overall selection Luka Doncic.

Rob Gronkowski doesn't travel to Chicago, unlikely for Patriots
He missed two days of practice and was limited Friday as the Bears prepared to host the Patriots for the first time since 2010. Gronkowski has been dealing with an ankle injury dating back to Week 2 and a back injury that took hold on Friday.

Winning the lottery, drafting four players including #1 overall pick Deandre Ayton, signing Devin Booker to a max contract, hiring Igor Kokoskov as head coach and relieving Ryan McDonough of general manager duties nine days before the season opener all contributed to a very interesting couple of months.

Booker scored 19 of his 35 points in the final 6:44 and lifted the Phoenix Suns to a 121-100 victory over the Dallas Mavericks in the teams' season opener on Wednesday night.

Trump says team working on tax cut for middle-income earners
In a further sign of the state's importance in the midterms, former President Barack Obama scheduled a stop Monday in Las Vegas. Trump said his administration was "looking at putting in a very major tax cut for middle-income people".

Doncic finished the night with 10 points, 8 rebounds and 4 assists. His first bucket came with an and-1 against Doncic down low. Let's go ahead and look to opening night Devin Booker was dressed and ready to start opening night.

Doncic did not shoot the ball well (five of 16 from the field), but scored 10, had eight rebounds and four assists and showed several flashes of why the Mavericks are so excited about him, including an effortless behind-the-back assist.

Amritsar train accident: Amarinder Singh meets injured at hospitals, defends Sidhu
An eyewitness alleged the train driver didn't blow the horn, while another woman cried inconsolably as she had lost her son. Amarinder Singh, Punjab chief minister, said he was rushing to Amritsar to supervise relief and rescue operations.

"Preseason really helped me a lot to get my butterflies out early and now I'm ready", Ayton said. Unfortunately, they've been unable to put it all together on the court in recent years. Last year, Warren was a 22% three-point shooter and attempted just over one three per game.
