Sunday's Results

National Football League

If  play  didn't improve commissioner  Roger Goodell threatened to expunge the
Pro  Bowl. The motivated  players didn't want to be known as the group to lead
to  the  game's cancellation and  take away  an honor for future participants.
Scoring  was still  aplenty, although effort was shown throughout in the NFC's
62-35  victory over  the AFC. The past two  years the game was played as if it
was  a  bad walkthrough.  The NFC's 62  points was a  new Pro Bowl single-game
mark,  set  last season by  the AFC, who  tallied 59 points. Minnesota Vikings
tight  end  Kyle Rudolph,  a late  entrant for Atlanta  Falcons tight end Tony
Gonzalez, was named the game's MVP with a touchdown and 122 yards receiving on
five receptions. Houston Texans defensive end J.J. Watt went out for a pass as
a  wide receiver  and retiring Green Bay Packers center Jeff Saturday lined up
on the AFC side for one play to snap to his longtime teammate Peyton Manning.

National Basketball Association

Perhaps  a  more generous Kobe  Bryant is the  answer to the Lakers' problems.
For  the second  consecutive game, Bryant finished with more assists than shot
attempts  and Los  Angeles took down the Oklahoma City Thunder, 105-96, at the
Staples  Center  on Sunday.  Bryant scored  21 points  on 8-of-12 shooting and
matched Friday's assist total against Utah with 14 to help the Lakers to their
second consecutive victory. He also tallied nine rebounds.

Boston Celtics 100, Miami Heat 98 (2-OT)

NBA

Boston Celtics  guard Rajon Rondo will miss the remainder  of the season after
tests  Sunday revealed  a torn  ACL in  his right  knee. Rondo was hurt during
Friday's double-overtime loss at Atlanta  and had been receiving treatment for
what was originally diagnosed  as a hyperextended knee.  He was a late scratch
for Sunday's game against Miami and was instead sent to a Boston hospital  for
tests.  The team revealed the severity of the injury Sunday afternoon and said
a  date for surgery has yet to be determined. Rondo, voted an All-Star starter
for the  Eastern Conference,  is averaging  13.7 points  and an  NBA-best 11.1
assists in 38 games this season.

set  victory over  Andy  Murray  in Sunday's  final.  The top-seeded  Djokovic
rallied  from a set  down to earn a 6-7 (2-7), 7-6 (7-3), 6-3, 6-2 triumph for
his  fourth overall Aussie Open crown and sixth Grand Slam championship. He is
the  first man to win three straight Australian Open titles since the Open Era
began  in 1968. Murray, bidding for his second straight Grand Slam title after
his  breakthrough last  year  at the  U.S.  Open, has  been  the runner-up  in
Melbourne three of the last four years.

GOLF

Tiger  Woods was 6-under  par for the day Sunday at the Farmers Insurance Open
and led by six when play was suspended due to darkness. Woods carded a 3-under
69  in the third round, and was 3-under through seven holes of the final round
to reach  17-under par for the tournament.  Defending champion Brandt Snedeker
was 4-under  par  in his final round  and had moved into  a share of second at
11-under.  He stands alongside Nick Watney,  the 2009 winner,  who was minus-3
for his  final round.  Fog canceled  almost all of  Saturday's play  at Torrey
Pines to force a Monday finish.
