Here's what you missed last night in sports:

Can't Stop, Won't Stop
Kevin Durant continued his torrid scoring streak, putting up 36 points to lead the Oklahoma City Thunder to a 111-105 win over the San Antonio Spurs. What's in store for the MVP candidate in his upcoming road matchups?

First Isn't Worst
Stanislas Wawrinka defeated Tomas Berdych to advance in the Australian Open to his first Grand Slam final.

Which Way Does It Go?
Can the Detroit Red Wings' 5-4 shootout victory over the defending champion Chicago Blackhawks turn their season around? Or, as their own coach thinks, will the Blackhawks repeat?

Silence Is Golden
The NFL ruled Wes Welker's noncontroversial hit to Aqim Talib was legal. Wonder what that'll do to Bill Belichick's sour-grapes tour.

The Wolf of Yankee Stadium
Alex Rodriguez and scamming stockbrokers have a lot in common.

Still Got It?
Tiger Woods is confident heading into yet another PGA Tour season.

Pay Up
Even the cheerleaders can't stand the Oakland Raiders. A group of past and present Raiderettes is suing the team for withholding wages and other unfair employment practices.

Promises, Promises
There are $600,000 reasons this furniture store owner won't be offering an NFL promotion again in the near future.
