Cornerback Michael Davis had five solo tackles and two passes defended for the Los Angeles Chargers in a 29-21 loss to the Miami Dolphins.

Linebacker Kyle Van Noy had five total tackles for the Dolphins, including a hit on the quarterback, in the 29-21 win against the Chargers.

Linebacker Sione Takitaki had three solo tackles to help his Cleveland Browns get the 10-7 win over the Houston Texans.


Jimmer Fredette continued to dominate offensively for the Shanghai Sharks with 27 points on 10-for-18 shooting from the field in their latest game. He also contributed five assists and two rebounds in his team’s narrow loss to Shanxi 121-118.

TJ Haws went perfect from the field (6-for-6) to score 18 points, along with three assists, two rebounds and one steal in Trefl Sopot’s 81-72 victory over Koniec Meczu.

Brandon Davies had five points, four rebounds, two assists and one block for Barcelona in its blowout 82-53 win over Coosur Real Betis.

Jake Toolson finished among the top 3-point shooters at the NBA G-League Elite Camp Combine, shooting as high as 82% in the spot-up-three drill.

Yoeli Childs continues to hope and prepare for an NBA career, telling Forbes he sees himself as “the steal of the draft.” He is projected by many outlets to be taken in the second round of the NBA Draft, which takes place Wednesday, Nov. 18 at 6 p.m. MT.
