Original player prop for Hornets-Cavs cancelled at 11:26 a.m. ET
We've cancelled the Chris Paul/David West vs. LeBron James/Delonte West scoring matchup because of Delonte's hand injury. All Streakers who had selected that game are now unlocked. In its place we have put up Paul/West vs. James/Daniel Gibson.

Today's Preview
It is the usual melange as we showcase our ESPN NBA doubleheader, with a player prop for the first game that matches duos instead of single players. Of course, we expect the users' favorite to be the Dutch Eredivisie matchup that includes not one, not two, but three vowel-repeated combinations when Feyenoord Rotterdam visits Heerenveen.

At 1 p.m., K.J. Choi and Ernie Els make early-season repeat appearances on the Streak as they suffer through balmy temperatures in Hawaii. Choi is the defending champ in the event, while Ernie is, well, Ernie. With the final hole a par-5, we predict this will be up in the air until the last putt.

NHL features heavily in the early evening -- we've got four games that start between 7 and 7:30 p.m. ET. There is also a 9:30 p.m. game in Colorado. Hockey experts ought to find at least one matchup to their liking.

At 8 p.m., ESPN brings you the Hornets vs. the Cavs. We figured the Cavs as too heavy a favorite to list straight up, so instead we're offering a 2-on-2 matchup. It's points-only, with New Orleans' Chris Paul and David West taking on King James and Delonte West.


NBA -- Orlando Magic at Los Angeles Lakers
The No. 2 and No. 3 teams in the Association (by record) duke it out in this 10:30 p.m. ESPN game. Orlando's winning streak stands at five games, while the Lakers are looking to rebound from their final-seconds loss to the Spurs on Wednesday night. Early Streakers are jumping on the Lakers. If "Superman" Dwight Howard shuts down Pau Gasol, they may soon have regrets.

Yesterday's Results
The Leaderboard took several hits today as Zach Johnson cruised past Davis Love, and later Northwestern lost the war but won the Streak battle by beating Purdue from long range. By the end of the night, Streakers were looking to Arizona State for salvation and it was not to be found, as the No. 15 Sun Devils were victimized by a huge second half from the USC Trojans. Streakers finished at under 40 percent once again.
