Schroder hits go-ahead 3, scores 28 as Hawks edge Knicks
NEW YORK (AP) — Dennis Schroder scored 28 points, including the go-ahead 3-pointer with 22 seconds left, to lead the Atlanta Hawks to a 108-107 victory over the New York Knicks on Monday.
The Knicks had three attempts at a desperately needed victory after, but Derrick Rose, Carmelo Anthony and Joakim Noah all couldn't convert before time expired.
The Hawks rested Dwight Howard, while the Knicks were without Kristaps Porzingis again because of a sore left Achilles tendon.
Anthony was sharp Monday, making buzzer-beaters to end the second and third quarters, but he was off on a pretty good look after Rose's drive to the basket on their final possession.
The NFL stadium being built in Inglewood near Los Angeles International Airport would be used for ceremonies along with Los Angeles Memorial Coliseum as part of the committee's concept to create a "new games for a new era," LA2024 announced Monday.

The Inglewood stadium would host the opening ceremony, including the parade of nations, the Olympic oaths, the official opening of the games and the lighting of the flame.

Sarno says tax filing can be a complicated process for people of any age.
The free help for seniors will begin on Feb.
A change in U. S. House rules making it easier to transfer millions of acres of federal public lands to states is worrying hunters and other outdoor enthusiasts across the West who fear losing access.
"Anybody who uses them for any kind of outdoor activity — snowmobiling, mountain biking, hunters, all that — they're very alarmed by all this," said Boise State University professor and public lands policy expert John Freemuth.
About a million square miles of public land is managed by the federal government, mostly in 12 Western states, according to the Congressional Research Service.
Some state lawmakers in recent years have made failed efforts to wrest control of those lands, mainly to reduce obstacles to accessing resources such as timber, natural gas and oil, Freemuth noted.
 Simpson was also the driver of a 2015 bill that created three wilderness areas in Idaho after he got ranchers, recreationists and environmental groups to back the plan after a 15-year effort.
Changes could be coming for South Dakota Retirement System members, as the House Retirement Laws Committee is set to consider measures Wednesday, including one meant to make sure the public employee retirement system is solvent into the future by tying cost-of-living adjustments for recipients more closely to inflation.
