We begin with last night's action in the NBA and with just one game being played it was Derrick Rose who stole the show - offering the perfect response to his All-Star snub on the even of the marquee event.

Rose hit 30 points and was the catalyst behind the Chicago Bulls' 113-98 win over the Cleveland Cavaliers. The loss was only the Cavs' second in the past 16 games.

Having failed to be selected to the Eastern Conference team for the 2015 All-Star game, Rose put on a show as the Bulls improved to a 43-20 record.

""I'm just letting my game come to me," Rose said. "That's all I'm doing. I'm being patient with the ball. ... I'm trying to read the defense and pass the ball to the right people that are open."

We begin in the NBA it looks like Carmelo Anthony’s season is all but done. With the New York Knicks nowhere near playoff contention Melo confirmed to reporters that it is very likely he is shut down for the year after this weekend’s All-Star game in a bid to recover fully from injury.

The move comes too late for some, while others are angry that he will participate in the All-Star game first before calling time on the 2014-15 campaign.


Meanwhile in the NFL, reports suggest that the Arizona Cardinals have begun talks on a new deal with veteran wide receiver Larry Fitzgerald. There is speculation that the Cardinals could trade away their all time leading receiver if a restructured deal cannot be agreed.


Finally, in the NHL the Edmonton Oilers caused a major upset by beating the Eastern Conference topping Montreal Canadiens 4-3 last night.

The team currently lying bottom of the Western Conference went down 1-0 in the first quarter before rallying to win in overtime at the Bell Center.
