LeBron - Crawford matchup cancelled at 11:24 p.m.
Jamal Crawford was a late scratch for tonight's Cleveland - Golden State basketball game. Streakers who picked a side in that matchup have been unlocked.

Today's Preview
The Streak showcases plenty of NBA basketball, plus golf, soccer, and tennis. The NHL is on its All-Star break.

We fire it up with a golf matchup from California. Peter Lonard of Australia takes on American Chris DiMarco. Both players are in the hunt for the tourney, and they'll play the same course (Bermuda Dunes) on Friday. Chris begins with hole No. 1, while Peter will start on the back nine.

NBA: Dallas Mavericks at Detroit Pistons
Two perennial contenders go at it in Motown, and you can catch all the action on ESPN. The Mavs would like to erase the memory of their 34-point loss to the Bucks on Wednesday, while the Pistons want to build on their modest two-game winning streak. The two teams have split their last eight meetings in Detroit.

Down under, Anabel Medina Garrigues goes against Flavia Pennetta in Aussie Open third round action. While the Spaniard is the lower seed, she should be more rested than Flavia, who had a tough three-set match in her second round victory.

Yesterday's Results
The Celts seemed a little bit rocky
So I went with Wisconsin-Milwaukee
But they played like Alpo
Got shown up by Valpo
From now on I'll stick with the hockey

The Leaderboard was pummelled late in the day when both UW-M and the Orlando Magic lost as heavy favorites. Streakers were still above 50 percent for the slate, but most of those wins came early behind Steve Stricker and the "3 Goals or More" on the Coppa Italia match.
