Minneapolis, MN - Once again Golden State rookie Harrison Barnes played a big part in the Warriors (5-4) 106-98 victory in Minnesota (5-4). Barnes coming off a 19 point 13 rebound performance two nights earlier against the Atlanta Hawks, finished Friday night with 18 points and 9 rebounds. The Warriors rookie was one of  five Dubs in double figures. David Lee chipped in 18 points and 13 rebounds while Steph Curry had 17 points and 6 assists.

The Warriors dominated in the paint outscoring the Wolves' 58-22 and out-rebounded Minnesota 50-34. the last two games the Warriors have stepped up both on the defensive end and also with their rebounding.

"So we made the adjustments and fortunately the last two games we've been doing a good job of securing the basketball, closing out defensive possessions.'' Coach Mark Jackson said.

The Warriors are in the beginning of a tough 3 game road trip in which they will travel to Oklahoma City to face Kevin Durant and the Thunder on Sunday, then turn around and play the Dallas Mavericks on Monday. This three game trip could tell Warrior fans not only what kind of team the Bay Area has this year but also the heart of these youngsters.

Oakland, CA. - The Raiders will be without their top two Running backs once again for this weekend's game against the high flying New Orleans Saints.

Both starter Darren McFadden, and top back-up Mike Goodson are still wearing protective boots on their injured ankles and have been ruled out for Sunday's game. Marcell Reece, Jeremy Stewart, and Taiwan Jones will most likely be asked to handle the ball carrying duties.

Safety Tyvon Branch is also hurting with a neck injury and has missed the last two practices, his status is questionable, as is safety Matt Giordano who missed Wednesdays practice with a concussion. It may be rough sailing for the Raider's secondary if their two top safety's miss the game. Drew Brees and his myriad of receivers lead the NFL in passing yards this year.

Wide receiver Darrius Heyward-Bey is also questionable with a bad hammy, but it looks like TE Brandon Myers (concussion) will be a go as he has been cleared to participate in all football related activities.

Former Giants outfielder Melky Cabrera has agreed to sign a 2 year deal with the Toronto Blue Jays worth an estimated $16 million dollars.

Cabrera was having an amazing 2012 year until he was suspended for 50 games in August due to a failed drug test. He was named to the NL All-Star team and named MVP of the All-Star game. Cabrera was also leading the National League in hits and was second in Batting Average at the time of his suspension.

The Giants were able to fill Cabrera's  shoes with the mid-year signing of outfielder Hunter Pence.

Sacramento, Ca. - Sacramento King's center DeMarcus Cousins was given a two game suspension following a heated exchange in which he is said to have confronted former player and San Antonio Spur's announcer Sean Elliott in a "hostile manor".

Cousin's has served his two game suspension both games in which the King's lost to the Los Angeles Lakers and the Portland Trailblazers. He lost an estimated $70,500 for the two games.

The NBA Player's Association is continuing with their appeal even though the suspension has already been fulfilled by Cousin's."Based on the accounts we have heard to date of the incident, we believe that a two-game suspension is excessive and unwarranted," the union said in a statement Wednesday. "We recognize the Commissioner's desire to discourage confrontations between players and members of the media, but he needs to exercise more subtlety and discretion in ascertaining and examining the specific facts and circumstances before handing down such heavy-handed discipline."

Cousin's who has had prior run-ins with both coaches, teammates, and during his one year with the Kentucky Wildcats did express remorse about the situation."Despite believing the penalty (is) unwarranted, I want to apologize to the Sacramento Kings, our fans and especially to my coaches and teammates for this distraction of our goals," Cousins said. "As a leader of the team, I have to make the best decisions so my teammates can count on me. I am committed to continued growth and being the best player I can be."

Cousins will return tonight as the Atlanta Hawk's visit sacramento.

Santa Clara, Ca. - 49ers head coach Jim Harbaugh was sent to the hospital on Thursday with an irregular heartbeat. Sources said Harbaugh started feeling some chest pain and discomfort on Wednesday and doctor's would discover the irregular heartbeat Thursday afternoon.

The 49ers say that the procedure is, "not a major cause of concern; it's more precautionary," and that they fully expect the coach back to work today to resume his normal friday practice regimen. By all accounts Harbaugh will also be available to coach Monday night's showdown with the Chicago Bears.

"It's one of those things that, like coach Harbaugh always tells us, he's tougher than a $2 steak," 49ers linebacker Patrick Willis said. "We know he's going to be all right. We know we have a bunch of great coaches here that keep everything on track, and we're going to practice today as if he was here."
