MANNY PACQUIAO DEFEATS TIMOTHY BRADLEY, BUT IS THIS HIS LAST FIGHT?

In front of 14,665 at MGM Grand Garden Arena, Pacquiao (58-6-2) knocked Bradley down in the seventh and ninth rounds- the first two knockdowns of the fighters' trilogy- and the filipino cruised to a 116-110 scores by all three judges. Manny mentioned retirement after his Saturday night work, but after knocking down Timothy Bradley twice in his unanimous-decision victory, calling it quits seems like a premature decision.  

ONE LAST TEST BEFORE THE RECORD IS BROKEN

The Golden State Warriors shattered the record for best start in NBA history (24-0) en route to a 72-9 mark, and only the Memphis Grizzlies stand in their way of eclipsing the legendary 1995-96 Chicago Bulls' 72-10 regular season record. Stephen Curry and Co. secured win No. 72 Sunday at the San Antonio Spurs- their first victory in San Antonio since Feb. 14, 1997. The defending champions will finish the regular season at home Wednesday against the Memphis Grizzlies. 

DANNY WILLET STEALS GREEN JACKET FROM JORDAN SPIETH AT AUGUSTA

Overnight leader Spieth, 22 led by five shots as he approached the 10th round at Augusta, but the American dramatically dropped six shots in three holes.
