MILWAUKEE (AP) - The Milwaukee Brewers' pitching could improve this year better because of two new bats. Outfielders Lorenzo Cain and Christian Yelich are just as capable of changing games with their gloves, too. The two big offseason acquisitions make their Brewers debut when Milwaukee visits the San Diego Padres for their season opener on March 29.

MILWAUKEE (AP) - DeAndre Jordan had 25 points and 22 rebounds to lead the Los Angeles Clippers past the Milwaukee Bucks 127-120. Austin Rivers added 22 points and Lou Williams scored 19 for Los Angeles, which bounced back after a deflating loss to Minnesota a night earlier. The Bucks lost All-Star forward Giannis Antetokounmpo to a right ankle sprain late in the first half. He hobbled around before heading to the locker room.

MILWAUKEE (AP) - Giannis Antetokounmpo has left the Milwaukee Bucks' game and will not return after rolling his right ankle. Antetokounmpo was injured in the second quarter against the Los Angeles Clippers. He appeared to get hurt when he tripped over teammate Shabazz Muhammad under Milwaukee's basket. He stayed in the game for a brief period, but hobbled around the court while grimacing. He went to the locker room with about four minutes remaining in the second quarter and did not return.

(AP) - A person familiar with the deal tells The Associated Press that the Dallas Cowboys have reached an agreement on a two-year deal with free-agent linebacker Joe Thomas. The person spoke to the AP on condition of anonymity because the deal hadn't been signed and there was no announcement from the team about its first acquisition since free agency opened last week. Thomas spent the past three seasons with Green Bay, starting eight of his 42 games with the Packers.
