Curry scored 10 of his 26 points in the final 6:20 and the Golden State Warriors held on for their NBA-record 19th consecutive win to start the season after a 106-103 victory over the Utah Jazz on Monday night.

Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel listens to remarks from an attendee at a town hall meeting on the city budget in Chicago(Reuters) - Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel will announce a new police accountability task force on Tuesday, his office said, a week after a white Chicago police officer was charged with murdering a black teenager. Emanuel, along with Chicago Police Superintendent Garry McCarthy and State Attorney for Cook County Anita Alvarez, have faced stiff criticism for a 13-month delay in releasing a video of the 2014 shooting and charging the officer. There have been a number of protests in Chicago in recent days.

Johnny Cueto has rejected a six-year, $120 million offer from the Arizona Diamondbacks, a person with knowledge of the situation said Monday. Arizona wants a front-line starter and would have made the right-hander by far the highest-paid player in the organization. The Diamondbacks met with Cueto and his representative last week, according to the person, who asked not to be identified because the offer had not been made public.

Trump says meeting with black clergy went 'very well'Ravens win as time expires on blocked field goal return (Yahoo Sports)

Presidential candidate Donald Trump speaks to the media after meeting with a group of black pastors at his office in the Manhattan borough of New YorkBy Emily Flitter NEW YORK (Reuters) - Republican presidential front-runner Donald Trump met a group of black pastors on Monday, some of them polarizing figures in their own right, despite objections from other African-American clergy and academics who have assailed what they call Trump's racially charged rhetoric. The meeting was held with the Coalition of African American Ministers, clergy from across the country connected to one another through the South Carolina-based Christian broadcaster, the NOW Television Network. The group included a former contestant on Trump's reality TV show "The Apprentice" and a New York pastor who has attracted national attention with anti-gay statements and harsh criticism of American leaders, including President Barack Obama and former President George W. Bush.

This season of injury upon injury for the Ravens finally includes a break worth celebrating. Brent Urban blocked Travis Coons' field-goal attempt and Will Hill returned it 64 yards for a touchdown as time expired, giving Baltimore a stunning 33-27 win Monday night over the luckless Cleveland Browns, who lost their sixth straight game along with starting quarterback Josh McCown. Coons lined up to kick a potential game-winning 51-yard field goal with 3 seconds to go for the Browns (2-9), but it was deflected by Urban, who was playing his first NFL game after missing the past two seasons with injuries to his knee and right arm.

Lawyers for Boston Marathon bomber to argue for new trialNo longer perfect, Patriots look to clinch top playoff spot (Yahoo Sports)

Dzhokhar Tsarnaev is pictured in this handout photo presented as evidence by the U.S. Attorney's Office in BostonLawyers for Boston Marathon bomber Dzhokhar Tsarnaev are due in court on Tuesday to seek a new trial for their client, who was sentenced to death in June for the 2013 bomb attack that killed three people and injured more than 260. The Supreme Court found it overly broad two days after Tsarnaev was sentenced to death by lethal injection. The defense in August asked that Tsarnaev be re-tried outside Boston, saying the intense publicity surrounding the attack and the trial unfairly influenced the 12 jurors who found their client guilty and sentenced him to death.

At least New England Patriots coach Bill Belichick doesn't have to answer - or, more precisely, not answer - questions about an undefeated season anymore. The Patriots' quest for a second perfect regular season came to an end Sunday night with a 30-24 overtime loss to the Denver Broncos. What's worse, tight end Rob Gronkowski was injured late in the game, putting a scare into a team that had already lost many of Tom Brady's offensive weapons.

Jury picking resumes in Baltimore's Freddie Gray killing trialUSC names Clay Helton permanent coach after strong finish (Yahoo Sports)

Protestors gather outside of the courthouse on the first day of jury selection for Baltimore Police Officer William Porter who is charged in connection with the death of Freddie Gray in BaltimoreJury selection resumes on Tuesday in the trial of the first of six police officers charged in the death of a black man from an injury in police custody that triggered rioting and fueled a U.S. debate on police brutality. Baltimore City Circuit Court Judge Barry Williams on Monday told the roughly 75 potential jurors that opening statements in the trial of Officer William Porter would take place as soon as Tuesday or Wednesday. The death of Freddie Gray, 25, in April followed police killings of black men in other cities, including New York and Ferguson, Missouri.

Clay Helton has twice taken charge of the Southern California football program in moments of crisis and steadied the Trojans with calm leadership. Athletic director Pat Haden decided Helton has earned the chance to be much more than his backup plan. USC hired Helton as its permanent coach on Monday, removing the interim tag five days before the Trojans face Stanford in the Pac-12 championship game.

Why U.S. Engagement Policy Is The Correct One

Invariably, when one thinks of the efficacy of a nation’s military, the mind’s eye is drawn to the ability of that country to deliver a \"warhead onto the forehead\" of their enemies. Indeed, owing to the Pentagon’s slick packaging of the First Gulf War, modern conflict, in the American mind, became synonymous with high-tech toys, grainy videos of successful missile shots, and a quick resolution of hostilities.

Living Wages Are A Global Problem

The recent protests for an increased minimum wage are part of a larger global protest. The purpose is the same for low wage earners all over the world; increase wages to match the cost of living, and allow workers to form unions if desired and needed. The global protest has gained media attention all over the world, but critics claim that is the only accomplishment the movement will have.

Ukraine: Not What It Seems

After tense days of fighting this week, people in Ukraine are mourning the dead and celebrating the removal of President Victor Yanukovych from power. The final struggle that began on February 18, was the bloodiest endured by the protesters of Euromaidan. By February 22 the fighting was over.

In a Five to Four Decision, Voting Just Got Harder

In a five to four decision along party lines, the Supreme Court ruled on the controversial Shelby County v. Holder case. The ruling, believed by many sets the nation back decades in Civil Rights, while others see it as the fault of Congress dropping the ball on updating the act when it should have years ago.

Coup Or Civil War In Egypt

The day after new protests erupted in Egypt the military in a show of support presented an ultimatum to Mohamed Morsi and the Muslim Brotherhood-led government. Morsi was to step down from power and meet all of the demands of the Egyptian people, or face being removed by the military on Wednesday. As the ultimatum deadline draws closer in Egypt, Morsi refuses to leave, insisting that parliamentary elections are needed before he should be removed, and that he doesn't have permission from the United States to remove himself from power. Most recently he stated he will pay with his life to preserve the sanctity of the ballot box.
