NBA-SCHEDULE

Terry Rozier allowed the Boston Celtics to put together a blowout win despite the absence of Kyrie Irving, who rested his quad injury. Rozier became the second player in league history to record a triple-double in his first start, providing 17 points, 11 rebounds and 10 assists in a 103-73 rout of the Knicks in Boston. Elias says Tony Wroten of the 76ers was the first player to post a triple-double in his initial start during the 2013-14 season.

MLB:

The Cleveland Indians are removing the divisive Chief Wahoo logo from their jerseys and caps starting in the 2019 season. The decision follows numerous discussions with Major League Baseball and Commissioner Rob Manfred. The team has been transitioning away from Chief Wahoo in recent years amid growing pressure to drop the big-toothed, smiling, red-faced caricature. Manfred said the team conveyed to him that some fans have a "long-standing attachment" to the logo, but the Indians agreed that it's "no longer appropriate for on-field use."
