The Boston Celtics have the best record of any team in the NBA's Eastern Conference with 18 wins and 4 losses this season. Will their success continue?

And the NFL has pledged $89 million to fund social justice issues. We look at what that means. Plus, on December 5, the International Olympic Committee will announce whether or not Russian athletes will be allowed to compete in the 2018 Winter Olympics. This decision comes after the Russian Olympic Team has been ordered to return 11 Olympic Medals from the 2014 Winter Olympics due to disqualifications because of doping.
