    Russell Westbrook could become the first player in 55 years to average a triple-double over a season. A growing emphasis on 3-point shooting, aided by rule changes that encourage more outside activity and a growing sense that potential rewards from beyond the arc outweigh the risks, have seen the NBA evolve into a haven for long-range sharpshooters and versatile playmakers. Oklahoma City star Westbrook leads the NBA with 31.4 points a game and averages 10.6 rebounds and 10.3 assists in a bid to become only the second player to average a triple-double for a season -- Oscar Robertson achieving the feat with 30.8 points, 12.5 rebounds and 11.4 assists over 79 games in the 1961-62 campaign.

    (Reuters) - Six days after taking heat for being in party mode in Miami, wide receiver Odell Beckham endured a nightmare playoff debut for the New York Giants on Sunday as his team lost 38-13 to Green Bay in a National Football Conference wild card game. Beckham, who recorded his first 100-reception season in 2016, never found his rhythm with quarterback Eli Manning and caught just four of 11 targets for 28 yards. "I'm not sure how many targets Odell had," Giants coach Ben McAdoo told reporters.

Thomas's four-under par effort gave him a 22-under total of 270 and a three-shot win over Japan's Matsuyama -- who arrived in Hawaii having won four of his prior five tournaments worldwide. Thomas was, in fact, the only man to beat Matsuyama in that span, at the CIMB Classic in Malaysia in October.

    (Reuters) - Justin Thomas recovered from a late double-bogey and held off a last-day challenge by Japan’s in-form Hideki Matsuyama to clinch his third PGA Tour victory, by three shots at the SBS Tournament of Champions in Hawaii on Sunday. The long-hitting American had been a commanding five strokes in front with five holes to play at the Kapalua Resort on the island of Maui before his lead was stunningly cut to just one after 15 holes. Thomas then benefited from a two-shot swing at the par-four 17th, where he sank a three-footer for birdie after Matsuyama had three-putted for bogey, and also birdied the last to close with a four-under 69 in the PGA Tour's opening event of the year.

"The defense played great, and we went out to control the ball and score some touchdowns," Bell said after the Steelers coasted into next Sunday's AFC divisional game at Kansas City. The third-seeded Steelers did all that and more in winning an NFL-best eighth in a row, one more than the top-seeded New England Patriots, who appear to be Pittsburgh's biggest roadblock to playing in a ninth Super Bowl.
