There was a graphic before the Jaguars' game on Sunday that warmed my heart. It is exactly the sort of obsessive research of details that I so enjoy doing when it strikes me:

I like to think one of the CBS stat guys sat down around midnight on Saturday, figured out this extremely serpentine path for Jacksonville to make the playoffs, and then ran to his producers the next morning with the information to be put in a 30-second graphic.

The Jaguars made a valiant effort, failing at step one.

Luis Suarez had extra motivation this weekend.

I'm surprised he didn't bite her hand.

In the span of a few brief seconds, an unknown shovel wielder clad in garments not of her own choosing has eclipsed Don Cherry's entire sartorial body of work.

In his defense, that was an epic booty on display.

Andrea Bargnani with the most baffling shot selection I've ever seen.

The Knicks would go on to win in 2OT as the Bucks are tanking harder than George Patton.

It's that type of smart basketball and situational awareness which helps make the Knicks so successful this season.

Andrea Bargnani with the most baffling shot selection I've ever seen.

There are songs of praise for the Raptors' GM for dealing him in the off-season. Most responses about the trade were:

Person A: "The Raptors traded Bargnani to the Knicks!"
Person B: "Great trade! What did we have to give NY to take him?"

Not the first time Masai Ujiri has fleeced the Knicks, probably not the last.

What can you do in 0.2 seconds of basketball? Try this. The fun part is the prescient comment by Heinsohn.
