49ers: Tomsula won’t commit to QB for next game

Blaine Gabbert helped the 49ers get a much-needed win in his first start for the team, but coach Jim Tomsula won’t commit to him going forward. “Gabbert was our starter today,” he said following the 49ers’ 17-16 win over the Falcons. “And I don’t have a comment past that.”

Kings: Gay expects more of himself

Kings forward Rudy Gay isn’t playing as efficiently as he’d like this season. He’s averaging 17.1 points but shooting just 40.5 percent and attempting 17.3 shots per game.
