James, Durant Square Off In Miami
Miami’s LeBron James has won four of the last five MVPs and was penciled in for his fifth, but it is hard to discount Oklahoma City’s Kevin Durant after his current scoring streak.

Syracuse Welcomes Duke To The Carrier Dome
Syracuse has been unstoppable in their first year in the ACC, but Duke has always been the team in this conference (along with North Carolina, but not this year).

Faber gets another shot at Barao at UFC 169 on Saturday. Also on the card, 145-point champ Jose Aldo meets Ricardo Lamas.
