KINGS 104, BULLS 98
SACRAMENTO, Calif. -- Bogdan Bogdanovic made a tiebreaking 3-pointer with 52 seconds remaining and Sacramento overcame a dismal start with a strong finish to beat Chicago 104-98. The Kings scored just nine points in the first quarter, trailed by as many as 21 and were down by seven with 10 minutes left before rallying to complete a season sweep of the Bulls. Bogdanovic had 15 points, George Hill scored 14 and Garrett Temple added 12 for Sacramento. Zach LaVine scored 27 points and Justin Holiday had 20 for Chicago. The Bulls, who lost center Robin Lopez to an ejection in the first half, have dropped seven straight.
WIZARDS 111, PACERS 102
INDIANAPOLIS -- All-Star guard Bradley Beal scored 21 points and Kelly Oubre Jr. had 15 to help Washington hold on to beat Indiana 111-102. The Wizards have won five straight overall, all without John Wall, and four in a row over the Pacers. Bojan Bogdanovic scored 29 points for the Pacers, trying to spur a fourth-quarter rally. Joe Young added 17 as Indiana's six-game home winning streak ended. Without starting guards Victor Oladipo (illness) and Darren Collison (left knee surgery), the Pacers were out of sync all night.

nassar
CHARLOTTE, Mich. (AP) — The former sports doctor whose serial sexual abuse of girls and young women upended the gymnastics world was sentenced Monday to a third prison term of 40 to 125 years for molesting young athletes at an elite Michigan training center. Larry Nassar listened to dozens of victims for two days last week and was almost attacked by a man whose three daughters said they were abused. His final sentence comes after he pleaded guilty to penetrating young athletes with ungloved hands when they sought treatment for injuries at Twistars, a gymnastics club that was run by a 2012 U.S. Olympic coach. The sentence is largely symbolic because the 54-year-old is already assured of spending the rest of his life in prison. 
RACING
PARIS (AP) — "Grid kids" are replacing "grid girls" in Formula One as the motorsport series makes changes ahead of the new season. F1 says youngsters from motorsport clubs, who are already competing in karting, will stand alongside drivers on the grid before races this season. The announcement Monday comes after the series last week ended the long-standing practice of using women on the grid, and on the podium with the top three drivers, because it no longer fits in with Formula One's values and societal norms. The latest initiative is a joint venture by the FIA — motorsport's governing body — and F1's owners. FIA President Jean Todt says "Grid Kids" gives "future champions of our sport the opportunity to stand alongside their heroes." F1 is owned by Liberty Media, which has been changing how the sport is run since taking over from former commercial rights holder Bernie Ecclestone in January 2017. The season starts on March 25 at the Australian Grand Prix.
BASKETBALL
NEW YORK (AP) — The NBA G League has granted a protest by the Santa Cruz Warriors and ordered the final 17.5 seconds of their loss to Iowa to be replayed. Golden State's affiliate protested its 116-113 loss on Jan. 19 after being incorrectly assessed a technical foul for calling an excessive timeout. The Warriors should have been granted a "reset timeout," a rule in the G League allowing teams to advance the ball without calling time and stopping play. The Wolves made the technical free throw, then two more after Santa Cruz fouled intentionally to take a 114-111 lead. The G League says Monday that the sequence unfairly impacted the game and ordered it to be restarted tied at 111 with Santa Cruz in possession of the ball. The replay will take place March 23 in Santa Cruz before the teams' regularly scheduled game.
OLYMPICS
PYEONGCHANG, South Korea (AP) — American bobsled pilot Justin Olsen hopes to compete at the Olympics despite having had a successful appendectomy on the eve of the Pyeongchang Games. U.S. bobsled officials said Tuesday that Olsen, who is from San Antonio, Texas, went to a hospital in the coastal city of Gangneung on Monday and is trying to recover so he can compete in events starting Feb. 18. USA Bobsled and Skeleton CEO Darrin Steele says officials are "heartbroken for Justin, but he's shown us over the years that he's capable of overcoming adversity." Officials say they're discussing options if Olsen can't race. Pyeongchang is Olsen's third Olympics. He was on the four-man gold-medal winning team at the 2010 Vancouver Games.
barney
ARLINGTON, Texas -- Veteran infielder Darwin Barney has signed a minor league contract with the Rangers that includes an invitation to major league spring training. Barney won a Gold Glove with the Chicago Cubs in 2012, when he had only two errors in 155 games at second base. 
frazier
NEW YORK -- Free agent third baseman Todd Frazier is switching sides close to home, set to join the New York Mets and take over a spot that's been in flux since David Wright got injured. Frazier and the Mets have agreed on a two-year contract for $17 million. Frazier, who was a 1998 Little League World Series champion in nearby Toms River, New Jersey, and later starred at Rutgers, finished up last season with the New York Yankees.
Patricia
DETROIT -- The Detroit Lions hired Matt Patricia on Monday, doubling down on the franchise's hope it can copy the New England Patriots' formula for success. The expected hiring of the defensive coordinator came a day after the Patriots lost to Philadelphia in the Super Bowl. Lions general manager Bob Quinn made the move, reuniting with someone he worked with in New England for more than a decade. The Lions plan to formally introduce him at a news conference Wednesday.
