Associated Press

The Associated Press is the essential global news network, delivering accurate, insightful news from every corner of the world, 24 hours a day. Since its founding in 1846, AP has been the first to report many of history’s most important moments, and every day, AP journalists, photographers and videographers file news from the front lines of the world's biggest stories. 

AP’s reporting, photography, audio and video are published and broadcast by the world’s leading newspapers, TV channels, apps, radio stations, websites and magazines—in fact, over half the world’s population sees AP news content on any given day. 

As a leader in the field of journalism, AP fights for freedom of the press and the public’s right to know. Its reporters take great risks to file in-depth stories from countries where the press is otherwise restrained, and in the U.S., AP aggressively uses the Freedom of Information Act to advocate for transparency and accountability in government.  

With more experience reporting and delivering news than any other agency, a well-earned reputation for independence and accuracy, and a fierce commitment to the people’s right to know, AP is the definitive source for trusted news.

Bron Makes History, Cavs Crush Celts

CLEVELAND (AP) - LeBron James scored 27 points to move into 21st place on the NBA's career list, and the Cleveland Cavaliers cruised to a 110-79 victory over the Boston Celtics on Tuesday night.

James, who has 24,508 career points, moved past Ray Allen with a layup in the third quarter. He was pulled with 4:41 remaining in the period and didn't return, playing 26 minutes.

Kyrie Irving scored 18 points in his return after missing two games with a shoulder injury, and Kevin Love - who played despite missing the morning shoot-around due to illness - added 12 points.

Brandon Bass scored 15 points to lead Boston, which lost by its largest margin of the season.

Jackets Continue Slide

 COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) - Alex Ovechkin added to his NHL-leading total with two goals Tuesday night, leading the charge in a 5-3 victory over the Blue Jackets, Columbus' seventh loss in a row.
 
   Eric Fehr and Tom Wilson also scored, and Marcus Johansson added an empty-net goal.
 
   Nicklas Backstrom and Jason Chimera each had two assists for the Capitals, who solidified their hold on the first wild-card playoff spot in the East before starting a five-game homestand. Braden Holtby had 27 saves.
 
   Ovechkin, who has won the Richard Trophy as the league's goal-scoring leader the last two years and four times overall, now has 43.
 
   Scott Hartnell had two goals and an assist - and was stopped on a penalty shot - while David Savard also scored for the Blue Jackets, 0-6-1 in their last seven.

Reds Top Tribe

   GOODYEAR, Ariz. (AP) - Brandon Phillips, Todd Frazier and Jay Bruce each had one of the Cincinnati Reds' six doubles in a 10-0 win over the Cleveland Indians on Tuesday, the spring opener for both teams.
 
   Phillips doubled in his first at-bat off Cleveland starter Zach McAllister and scored on a single by Devin Mesoraco.
 
   McAllister is trying to win a job as Cleveland's fifth starter, but the right-hander could also wind up in the bullpen. He made seven relief appearances last September and the Indians were pleased to see his velocity improve when he pitched late in games.
 
   Jason Marquis, who is competing for one of two open spots in the Reds' starting rotation, struck out three and walked two in two scoreless innings.
 
   Marlon Byrd drove in a run for the Reds; whose offense sputtered last year with the lack of a run producer in leftfield. The Reds traded for Byrd to fill the void.
