Kevin Durant's triple-double carries Golden State Warriors to victory

CHARLOTTE, N.C. -- It was originally supposed to be Stephen Curry's night. But instead, the night clearly belonged to Kevin Durant. With Curry and Draymond Green sidelined with injuries, Durant stepped into the spotlight and led the Golden State Warriors to a 101-87 victory over the Charlotte Hornets Wednesday night at the Spectrum Center. Durant notched his ninth career triple-double, finishing with 35 points, 11 rebounds and 10 assists and seemingly taking the game into his own hands whenever he wished. He scored 16 points in the first quarter to set the tone as the Warriors led by as many as 26 in the first half. Durant said it was a matter of everyone stepping up as Charlotte native Curry was out with a sprained ankle and Green was a late scratch with a sore shoulder. The Warriors also...

ATLANTA -- The Cleveland Cavaliers hit a season-high 18 3-pointers, but it also took a defensive change in the second half that showed off LeBron James' all-round game to keep their winning streak alive. James, who scored 24 points on 11 shots, switched over to cover Atlanta point guard Dennis Schroder and the Cavaliers defeated the Hawks 121-114 for their 10th consecutive victory Thursday night. Schroder scored 27 points, but the 6-foot-8 James slowed him down enough in the second half for the Cavaliers (15-7) to win despite giving up the most points during their streak. "I take a lot of pride in my defensive abilities to matter if I'm guarding a point guard, a power forward, a center or a small forward. I take the challenge," James said. "My teammates wanted me to take the challenge and ...
Big House victory for GOP tax plan, but Senate fate unclear

Big House victory for GOP tax plan, but Senate fate unclear

Health
Republicans rammed a $ 1.5 trillion overhaul of business and personal income taxes through the House Thursday, edging toward the code's biggest rewrite in three decades and the first major legislative triumph for President Donald Trump and the GOP after 10 bumpy months of controlling government. The mostly party-line 227-205 vote masked more ominous problems in the Senate. There, a similar package received a politically awkward verdict from nonpartisan congressional analysts showing it would eventually produce higher taxes for low- and middle-income earners but deliver deep reductions for those better off. The Senate bill was approved late Thursday by the Finance Committee and sent to the full Senate on a party-line 14-12 vote. Like the House measure, it would slash the corporate tax rate...
