BOSTON (AP) — The Golden State Warriors are 24-0 after Stephen (STEH'-fehn) Curry delivered 38 points, 11 rebounds and eight assists in a 124-119 victory in double-overtime at Boston. Curry made only 9 of 27 shots from the field, but he was 6-for-13 from 3-point range and a perfect 14 of 14 from the free throw line.

CHICAGO (AP) — A person familiar with the deal says free agent outfielder Jason Heyward and the Cubs have agreed to an eight-year, $184 million contract. The 26-year-old Heyward hit .293 with 13 homers and 60 RBIs this year, helping St. Louis win the NL Central. The agreement with the three-time Gold Glove winner and 2010 All-Star is the latest in a series of big moves by the Cubs as they try to build on a breakthrough season and bring home their first World Series title since 1908.
CHICAGO (AP) — Chicago Blackhawks right wing Patrick Kane has stretched his team-record point streak to 25 games by scoring an insurance goal in a 2-0 shutout of Winnipeg.

Quebec Nordiques forward Mats Sundin (suhn-DEEN') scored in 30 straight games in 1992.
