Game of the week: Heat burn out the Knicks
In possibly the most hyped matchup heading into the all-star break, the Knicks traveled to South Beach to take on the red-hot Heat Thursday night, and it wasn't easy from the get go. New York had a high amount of turnovers early (15 in the first half) but hung in to only be down by 4 at the half. In the end, it came down to a very underwhelming performance from star point guard Jeremy Lin, who shot 1 for 11 from the field, and a 67 point performance from Miami's "big three." Final score: Heat 102 Knicks 88
Big Letdown: Danica Patrick's debut delayed
The Daytona 500--the signature race of NASCAR--was delayed by rain Sunday, as well as the debut of perhaps the most talked-about racer in the sport, Danica Patrick. The very famous Go Daddy girl was looking to see how she would compete against the boys until scattered thunderstorms had something else to say about it. In the 54 years of Daytona 500, this also happens to be the first time it has been delayed. The race will take place today at noon.
Wish we were there: NFL scouting combine
The future of the NFL strutted their stuff at the combine, which started on Thursday and will end tomorrow. The most notable performance is from Heisman winner Robert Griffin III who ran a 4.41 30-yard dash, which also happens to be the fastest by any quarterback this year. The impressive run could possibly bump his draft stock up to second, behind the highly-touted Andrew Luck of course. Speaking of Luck, the Stanford prodigy ran an unofficial 4.59 himself and had a very similar overall combine to Cam Newton.
