Sports Minute: Here is the latest Texas sports news from The Associated PressPosted: Updated:
LOS ANGELES (AP) - Patty Mills hit a go-ahead jumper with 6.8 seconds left and the San Antonio Spurs kept the Los Angeles Lakers winless with LeBron James. San Antonio rallied from a six-point deficit in the final minute of overtime for a wild 143-142 victory. James hit a tying 3-pointer with 2.4 seconds left in regulation and finished with 32 points, 14 assists and eight rebounds. But the superstar missed two free throws with 12.8 seconds to play.
DALLAS (AP) - DeAndre Jordan became the first Dallas player in 24 years to start a season with three straight double-doubles, getting 18 points and 16 rebounds to help the Mavericks beat the Chicago Bulls 115-109. Luka Doncic scored 19 in the 19-year-old's second home game. It was another win to put the Mavericks over .500 for the first time since the end of the 2015-16 season. Zach LaVine scored 34 for the Bulls and is the third Chicago player to open a season with three straight 30-point games.
DALLAS (AP) - The Dallas Cowboys have acquired Oakland receiver Amari Cooper for a first-round draft pick. Raiders general manager Reggie McKenzie says his team will get the pick in the 2019 draft. The deal comes with the Cowboys struggling to make big plays in the passing game with quarterback Dak Prescott, and a few months after they released franchise touchdown catch leader Dez Bryant in a cost-cutting move. Cooper was the fourth overall pick by the Raiders out of Alabama three years ago.
HOUSTON (AP) - The Houston Texans have put their 0-3 start behind them, winning four straight games capped by Sunday's victory over the Jaguars to move into first place in the AFC South. But they won't have much time to celebrate their recent success with the Dolphins coming to town on Thursday night.
FORT WORTH, Texas (AP) - TCU receiver and standout returner KaVontae Turpin has been suspended from the team after an alleged physical altercation with his girlfriend and his arrest on an assault charge. Coach Gary Patterson says Turpin probably won't play Saturday at Kansas. Turpin's arrest came after TCU's home loss to Oklahoma in which he had a 99-yard kickoff return for his school-record sixth career special teams touchdown.
FORT WORTH, Texas (AP) - TCU coach Gary Patterson says sophomore quarterback Shawn Robinson will have surgery and Michael Collins will be the starter. Patterson did not discuss details, but the decision comes more than three weeks after Robinson took a hit on his non-throwing left shoulder in a 17-14 win over Iowa State. Robinson played the next game, but Collins replaced him after three series against Oklahoma. TCU plays at Kansas on Saturday.
(AP) - Mississippi State has established that it has a really good defense and can run the ball on offense. But the Bulldogs' problems in the passing game are proving difficult to overcome. Mississippi State lost to LSU 19-3 last weekend after starting quarterback Nick Fitzgerald had just 59 yards passing and threw four interceptions. Now the Bulldogs are trying to find ways to fix the passing problems before No. 16 Texas A&M comes to town.
