After sitting in second place in the Eastern Conference for months, the Miami Heat are finally back on top after last night’s 98-86 win over the Indiana Pacers. Miami dominated in the third quarter to take control, with LeBron James (pictured) leading the rally and finishing with 36 points and 6 rebounds on the night. Meanwhile, 22 points from Paul George wasn’t enough for the Pacers as they dropped to 3-7 in their last 10 games. So while the NBA Playoffs are still a week away, it’s safe to say the King of the East lays his crown in Miami.

On the MLB diamond, it was all about the mound as some of the game’s top pitchers put on outstanding showings. San Diego’s Andrew Cashner was especially impressive, allowing just one hit the Tigers and striking out 11 batters along the way in the Padres 6-0 shutout. LA’s Hyun-Jin Ryu and Yu Darvish of Texas also had monster nights, so hit the jump to see what these hurlers wore.

Catch up on this and more, plus find out which shoes are leading the Masters after the break.
