NBA • The Utah Jazz will hold their annual intrasquad scrimmage on Saturday, Oct. 5 at EnergySolutions Arena.

The Jazz will conclude training camp with the scrimmage. They begin the preseason with an Oct. 8 home game against Stephen Curry and the Golden State Warriors.

The regular season starts Oct. 30, when the Jazz play host to Kevin Durant, Russell Westbrook and the Oklahoma City Thunder.

Olympic boarder denounces Russia

Winter Sports • Russia's new law banning gay "propaganda" could end up tarnishing the upcoming Winter Olympics in Sochi, Russia, two-time Olympic gold-medal winner Seth Wescott said, becoming the latest Western voice to condemn the law.

Wescott criticized the International Olympic Committee on Wednesday for selecting Sochi to host the 2014 games, saying the city hadn't proven it had the ability to hold the event. The new Russian law that prohibits the promotion of "nontraditional" sexual relations could further sully the competition, he said.

"The human rights stuff that's going on, there's a potential for it to be an incredibly negatively-overshadowed Olympics," he told The Associated Press.
