Clyde Frazier Killed A Zoo To Make His OutfitS

Because no one reads the newspaper, and SportsCenter's anchors are too perky for this early in the morning, Deadspin combs the best of the broadsheets and internets to bring you everything you need to know to start your day.

•Miami goes to OT for the second game in a row, and again completely dominated the extra frame, topping Portland 107-100. Think this winning streak is because the Big Three are learning to share? LeBron, Wade and Bosh combined for 96 points.

•With Miami and Cleveland both on West Coast swings, the Cavaliers changed their travel plans to avoid staying in the same hotel as the Heat. Basically, the Cavs are the guy who avoids going to parties where his ex-girlfriend will be, because she's now with someone clearly better than him.

A three-team trade to send Carmelo Anthony to New Jersey is gaining momentum, with the inclusion of Detroit. It's all contingent on Melo signing an extension with the Nets, because apparently playing with Chauncey Billups and no one else for the next three years tops waiting for free agency.

•Nevada beat BC, beat hunger, and had their first 13-win season since way back in their 1-AA days. So, we're done now, right? No more meaningless bowl games? Just checking.

•NFL free agency is the worst of all sports, but there's at least one prize on the market: Nnamdi Asomugha, who because of an odd little performance clause in his contract, is now an unrestricted free agent. Hey, wasn't that fun, when the Raiders looked like they were starting to turn things around?
