With the 111-77 defeat of the Lakers, the Warriors won their 16th consecutive game to begin the year, besting the previous record start of 15-0 held by the 1948-1949 Washington Capitals and the 1993-1994 Houston Rockets.

The Warriors outscored Los Angeles 30-11 in the first quarter and never looked back. A 35-17 third quarter edge pushed the game into laugher status.

Only five of the Warriors' 16 opponents have finished the game within 10 points of Golden State.

While some experts predicted a fall to earth for the 2014-2015 NBA Champions, the Warriors have shown that they aren't done yet.

Photo by Christian Petersen/Getty Images(ST. LOUIS) -- Saint Louis Rams wide receiver Stedman Bailey was shot in the head twice on Tuesday night, ESPN reports.

The Rams issued a statement overnight, saying that they were aware that the wide reciever was "involved in an incident." Bailey, the Rams said, was in a hospital in "critical, but stable, condition."

Bailey was in a vehicle at the time of the shooting. The driver of the vehicle was also shot, and is believed to have sustained more serious injuries than Bailey.

The third-year player out of West Virginia University had been serving a four-week suspension for violating the National Football League's substance abuse policy.

Scott Olson/Getty Images(NEW YORK) -- What's in store for fantasy sports in New York?

On Wednesday, DraftKings and Fan Duel will head to court to fight for the industry to continue operation in the state as New York Attorney General Eric Schneiderman tries to shut them down.

According to Schneiderman, both fantasy websites are misleading the public with deceptive advertising and violating the state's gambling laws, while FanDuel and Draftkings argue that it's not gambling, but a game of skill.

New York law states gambling as when a person "stakes or risks something of value upon the outcome of a contest of chance or a future contingent even not under his control or influence, upon an agreement or understanding that he will receive something of value in the event of a certain outcome."

If the judge decides to keep fantasy sports out of New York, it would affect more than 600,000 players based in the state who spent at least $200 million in entry fees in 2015, according to ESPN.

George Gojkovich/Getty Images(CINCINNATI) -- Wallace Gilberry knows the true meaning of the holidays.

The Cincinnati Bengals defensive end was seen at Target recently where an Instagram user said he was buying a young family he didn't know a PlayStation 4 and a variety of games.

"The kids and dad were going crazy and the mom was in tears," said the post. "I was big fan of him before but I'm a even bigger fan now. What a stand up dude."

The user later said he approached Gilberry about what he did for the family and he said, "Everyone needs to be blessed."

Phil Ellsworth/ESPN Images(CLEVELAND) -- After social media posts surfaced allegedly showing Cleveland Browns quarterback Johnny Manziel partying over the weekend, "Johnny Football" is now going to serve as a third option and Josh McCown will be the starting quarterback.

Browns coach Mike Pettine announced the decision in a statement on Tuesday.

“Everyone in this organization wants what is best for Johnny just like we do for every player in our locker room," Pettine said. "I’m especially disappointed in his actions and behavior because he has been working very hard. The improvements from last year to this year have been tremendous but he still has to consistently demonstrate that he has gained a good understanding of what it takes to be successful at the quarterback position on this level. It goes well beyond the field. We are going to continue to support him in every way possible, but at this point, we’ve decided it’s best to go with Josh as the starter going forward.”

Manziel has been in similar situations in the past and he spent 10 weeks in a treatment facility during the offseason for undisclosed reasons.

Last month, Manziel was in the news after witnesses reported him driving dangerously and his girlfriend said he had gotten physical with her.

Just last week, the NFL announced Manziel would not face discipline for the incident.

"It's a little easier to handle when it's just a one-time occurrence, but when behavior repeats, not just him but with anybody, it's certainly a cause for concern."

"You have a vision of what you want the team to look like, how you want them to handle themselves when they're out of the building. We talk a lot about it ... so when things like this happen -- and not just him, but just in general -- any team when you have incidents like that [where] a guy knows that he represents more than himself and has issues off the field, it is frustrating," Pettine added.

Rocky Widner/Getty Images(CLEVELAND)  -- LeBron James joined Hall of Famer Oscar Robertson in an elite ranking on Monday. They are the only players in the NBA's history to rank in the top 25 in both points and assists, ESPN reports.

James assisted Kevin Love for a 3-pointer with five minutes left in the second quarter, which boosted him into the elite company.

James said he didn't want the accomplishment to spark a conversation comparing his career with Oscar Robertson's.

"I think what we get caught up in, in our league too much, is trying to compare greats to greats, instead of just accepting and acknowledging and saying, 'Wow, these are just great players,'" James said after the Cavaliers' win over the Orlando Magic.

Allen Kee/ESPN Images(PITTSBURGH) -- Pittsburgh Steelers linebacker Arthur Moats donated 35 percent of his 2015 salary to a small college in Northern Virginia, ESPN reports.

Moats is paying homage to his alma mater, James Madison University, where he met his wife and earned a political science degree while playing football.

"I wanted to make a larger impact," Moats said. "Me and my family are comfortable with it."

The 300,000 dollars will go to improving the school's  Convocation Center, the basketball arena which also hosts local events and it will help create a scholarship fund for studio arts, according to ESPN.

Moats said the school helped form him and that he and his family found a budget that works for them.

"It definitely puts a smile on my face," Moats said. "I’ve been on the opposite of that, where you're trying to scrounge enough change together to buy from the dollar menu, wondering when the Pell Grant money will kick in. So, [the donation] was a good amount, but when you're paying it forward, it will work out."
