A fan cheers while holding up a “24-1” shirt during an NBA basketball game between the Milwaukee Bucks and the Golden State Warriors Saturday, Dec. 12, 2015, in Milwaukee. The Bucks won 108-95, ending the Warriors’ 24-game winning streak to start the season. Will the Warriors hand out 10-15 shirts Friday against the visiting Bucks, who improved to that record with the victory?

In case you missed them, here are some teachable moments from the last seven days:

▪ The Warriors had to lose some time, and the last game of a seven-game trip seemed about right.

▪ Stanford’s Christian McCaffrey did some of his best work while much of the country, including Heisman voters, slept.

▪ As far as the Browns are concerned, Santa Claus wears red and gold.

▪ Major League Baseball has a partnership with DraftKings, just not one with Pete Rose.

▪ It’s starting to look like an even-numbered season ahead for the Giants.
