NEW YORK (AP) — The NBA says two calls were missed in the final moments of Cleveland's one-point win over Golden State on Christmas Day, and both benefited the Cavaliers. The league says LeBron James should have been called for a technical foul for deliberately hanging on the rim with 1:43 to go. Cavaliers forward Richard Jefferson should have also been called for a foul on the Warriors' Kevin Durant on the game's final play.

COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) — The red-hot Columbus Blue Jackets will try to extend their franchise-best 12-game winning streak when they host Boston tonight. The winning run has given the Blue Jackets a team-best 23-5-4 start to the season, good for the best record in the NHL.
