George was especially effective even though he spent much of the night defending Hawks point guard Jeff Teague.

INDIANAPOLIS (AP) - IndyCar has put Helio Castroneves on probation through June because he violated the series' social media policy.

CHICAGO (AP) - Nate Schierholtz drove in a pair of early runs to lead the Chicago Cubs to a 9-2 victory over the Arizona Diamondbacks last night. Jason Hammel pitched seven strong innings. He allowed just one run and four hits in seven innings to lower his ERA to 2.60.
