The Warriors and Rockets are engaged in an absolute barn burner in Oakland—it was 93-93 at the end of the third quarter—full of unlikely threes and great offense. But even within the context of an already hyperkinetic game, this amazing sequence by the Warriors is one of the prettiest things I’ve seen all season.
Killing time before votes from the New Hampshire primary started trickling in, Bernie Sanders showed off some of the skill that helped his Brooklyn elementary school win the borough championship. I’d make a joke here, but that’s bigger than any basketball accomplishment I have.

The New Yorker has a nice profile of Kevin Castille, who will compete in this weekend’s Olympic Marathon Trials as the oldest ever men’s qualifier. Castille’s success at 43 might be because of the low mileage on his legs: he spent most of his 20s selling crack cocaine, and then in jail.
Demetrious “Mighty Mouse” Johnson is the UFC’s flyweight champion and arguably one of the greatest fighters on Earth. He blends speed and technique in ways that’ll make your eyes say, “huminahuminahwhaat?” Naturally, he wants to play video games for a living.

Quarterback Johnny Manziel missed the Browns’ final game of the season after the team reported that he was in the concussion protocol.
