Good morning. Devin White, the Bucs’ star
linebacker, dreamed of riding a horse around Raymond James Stadium.
Yesterday, he did so while hoisting the Lombardi Trophy during the team’s
Super Bowl parade. Legendary.
Early in his career, LeBron's biggest weakness was his 3-point shooting.
This season? He’s shooting a deadeye 40%, better than known shooters like
Trae Young and Duncan Robinson.
At this point in the season, Lebron has the Lakers playing like title
(20-6) LA Lakers 114
vs. (10-14) Oklahoma City Thunder 111
The Lakers slid by the Thunder to win their third OT game in a row.
Lebron (25 pts, 6 reb, 7 ast) led the team, but we know he can’t
wait for Anthony Davis to return to shoulder some of the load.
(15-9) Phoenix Suns 125
vs. (16-9) Milwaukee Bucks 124
Giannis (47 pts, 11 reb, 5 ast) had a monster game but missed the
potential game-winning shot as time expired.
(18-8) LA Clippers 119
vs. (6-19) Minnesota Timberwolves 112
Season-high scoring from Kawhi Leonard (36 pts, 8 reb, 5 ast) and
Lou Williams (27 pts, 5 reb, 4 ast) made up for Paul George’s
absence to help the Clippers snap a two-game losing streak.
(14-6) #15 Iowa 79 vs.
(11-7) #25 Rutgers 66
The Hawkeyes ended a two-game skid behind a balanced attack with
four players scoring double-digits. As long as they don’t face
Indiana, who beat them twice this year, this team could be dangerous
(14-3) #9 Virginia 57
vs. (9-7) Georgia Tech 49
Virginia (10-1 in the ACC) pulled away from the Yellow Jackets late
in the game. UVA has six games left to hold on for a fifth ACC title
in eight seasons.
(9-1-2) Boston Bruins 3
vs. (4-5-3) New York Rangers 2 - OT
Boston’s team leadership deserves praise for the Bruins’ incredible
start to the season after many believed they would regress.
(11-2-1) Toronto Maple Leafs 4 vs. (8-3-2) Montreal Canadiens 2
In the battle for the Canadian Division, Toronto edged the Canadiens
to retain the top spot. The Maple Leafs have won four straight and
sit atop many NHL Power Rankings.
Philadelphia 76ers (18-7) vs. Portland Trail Blazers (13-10) - 10:00 ET on
