THE HEADLINES:

--  It's time for the opening face-off in the World Junior Hockey Championship. The annual tournament of the world's best under-20 hockey players is being held in Toronto and Montreal this year. Canada will play Slovakia in Montreal tonight (at 8 pm Eastern). The early games have Russia playing Denmark, the United States facing Finland and the Czech Republic up against Sweden.

--  Canada will put one of its veteran juniors in net tonight. Goaltender Zachary Fucale will start for Canada against Slovakia. Fucale was Canada's number one goalie at last year's world championship in Sweden after the first two games of that tournament.

--  Jamal Crawford scored 12 of his 24 points in the fourth quarter as the Los Angeles Clippers handed the NBA leading Golden State Warriors their second loss at Staples Center in three days with a 100-86 victory.  The Warriors held the Clippers to 39.1 per cent shooting in the game, two nights after the Lakers shot 51.7 per cent without Kobe Bryant to beat them 115-105.

--  Cleveland Cavaliers forward LeBron James received a loud but mixed reaction yesterday when he was introduced at American Airlines Arena for the first time since leaving the Miami Heat. James got cheers and boos from the fans when he was announced as a starter before Cleveland's 101-91 loss to Miami. He hugged several former teammates and also pointed to the Heat bench and tapped his heart.

--  In other NBA action, Russell Westbrook and Serge Ibaka were instrumental in the Oklahoma City Thunder's 114-106 win over the San Antonio Spurs. Also, the Washington Wizards handed the New York Knicks their 16th loss in 17 games with a 102-91 victory. The Chicago Bulls beat the LA Lakers 113-93.

--  The NBA is the only major professional league in action again today. There's 11 games on tap, starting with Brooklyn at Boston in an afternoon matinee. The Toronto Raptors have the night off and will play the Clippers in Los Angeles tomorrow.
