Warriors-Suns lives up to the hype but ends in Golden State’s third loss of the season

PHOENIX — Draymond Green pulled up, exhausted, and watched as the nail dig into the coffin of the Warriors’ seven-game winning streak and their claim to sole possession of the NBA’s best record. Jae Crowder’s 3-pointer with 3:47 to go sealed the Warriors’ fate in a 104-96 loss to the Phoenix Suns in a matchup of the NBA’s top two teams that lived up to its billing. Green had just run the length of the court and back two times but failed to complete either of his attempts at the rim that could have stemmed the Suns’ game-clinching run. Instead, all he could was watch. Crowder’s 3 was the clincher in a 24-18 fourth quarter that gave the Suns their 17th consecutive win and pulled them even with Golden State atop the Western Conference standings at 18-3. Tuesday’s game was more than just an early season matchup for supremacy in the West. It was a battle of one team vying to regain its position and another looking to replicate the former’s dynastic reign. Suns coach Monty Williams laid the stakes bare. “They have everything we…

SF Giants bolster rotation again, sign another veteran starter

SAN FRANCISCO — With a potential work stoppage and lockout looming, the Giants are among many MLB teams that aren’t waiting around to sign free agents. After re-signing veteran starter Anthony DeSclafani to a three-year, $36 million deal last week, the Giants announced they agreed to terms with another veteran right-hander, Alex Cobb, on a two-year, $20 million deal with a club option for 2024 on Tuesday. Cobb will earn $9 million in 2022 and 2023 and the Giants will have the choice of exercising a $10 million club option for 2024 or paying the righty a $2 million buyout. Cobb, 34, joins DeSclafani and ace Logan Webb in the Giants’ projected 2022 rotation and boasts an impressive résumé, but has also dealt with injury issues in recent years. Cobb missed nearly all of the 2019 season with a hip injury and only made 18 starts in 2021 due to a wrist issue. When healthy, the former Rays, Orioles and Angels righty has been an effective mid-rotation option and is a proven strike-thrower, which makes him an appealing option for a Giants team that values…

Thursday event to highlight career opportunities in education in Tehama County

RED BLUFF — An event highlighting career opportunities in education is scheduled for 2-6 p.m. Thursday, Dec. 2 at the Job Training Center in Red Bluff. Due to the worker shortage, low unemployment rates and fewer women in the workforce, filling key positions in education has continued to challenge schools, daycare centers, preschools, after school programs and even sports teams seeking coaches. In response, the Job Training Center, First Five Tehama and the Tehama County Department of Education have been working on short and long-term workforce strategies. “Edjoin.com is the go-to website for jobs in education and today there’s still over 160 open positions in the county,” said Kathy Garcia, of the Job Training Center. “They are not all teaching positions. This is where you also find openings for coaches, maintenance and facility staff, administrative office workers and more.” The team has invited a group of experts to be available for Thursday’s event to showcase the many different local career positions in education. Experts will be available to answer questions and help connect the dots. If you need to register to take ECE credits, a…

Once again, Sharks fans will need a subscription to ESPN+ or Hulu if they want to watch their favorite team’s game with the New Jersey Devils on Tuesday night.

Folsom Ice Rink Ready To Open After Weeks Of Delays

FOLSOM (CBS13) — Following weeks of delays due to vandals and thieves, the Folsom Historic District Ice Rink is finally set to open Wednesday. It’s exciting not just for the workers — who were on the ice testing it out Tuesday — but also the community that’s been waiting for what some consider an annual tradition. The Christmas tree is ready and the lights are set to welcome families back to the ice once again this holiday season. It’s been several days of stress for the family-run business and its employees. Many worked 16-hour days to get the rink up and running following days of vandals and thieves. Many were caught on camera damaging the tubes that carry the liquid that keeps the ice rink cold. Now, by Wednesday afternoon, families will be able to get back on the ice for the first time this season.

Caltrans Says Most Wrong Way Crashes Involve Impaired Drivers; Continues To Add Safety Measures

SACRAMENTO (CBS13) — A fiery head-on crash shut down part of I-5 at the I-80 interchange Tuesday morning. The California Highway Patrol says a suspected DUI driver was traveling in the wrong direction on Southbound I-5 when they crashed into a big rig head-on. Both drivers are expected to survive, but a North Highlands family of five involved in a wrong-way crash didn’t have the same fate. A mother, father and two children under 10 died after being hit by a wrong-way driver who was also suspected of DUI on I-80 in the Sierra. The lone survivor from that family was a 4-year-old boy. “We take the matter very seriously. We believe this is something that needed to be addressed,” said Dennis Keaton, a spokesperson with Caltrans. Just last year, Caltrans and UC Davis completed a pilot program aimed at adding preventative measures to avoid wrong-way crashes. We asked Caltrans about their findings and what recommendations the department has made and is continuing to make on the roadways. “All ramps that are now constructed or ramps that have been constructed in the past are to…
