The B/B Podcast - Streaking Heat, World Baseball Classic Brawl and a Champion at 48

By - Kris Fletcher & Tim Swift

In this week's edition of The Bleacher Briefings podcast, we discuss the streaking Miami Heat, the full-blown brawl between Team Canada and Team Mexico at the World Baseball Classic, and Bernard Hopkins winning the IBF light-heavyweight title at the age of 48!

- On Fire in Miami: On Sunday, the Heat knocked off the Pacers to record their 18th-straight win. What makes this team so tough to beat (besides the obvious: LeBron), and how much longer can this red-hot streak last? We break it down.

- World Baseball Brawl: Things got ugly at the WBC on Saturday, when a late-inning bunt prompted an all-out war between Team Canada and Team Mexico. Should the rules be changed to prevent future altercations, and what did the brawl do for the World Baseball Classic in general? Our answers may surprise you.

- Not Bad For an Old Man: Friday night, 48-year-old Bernard Hopkins schooled 31-year-old Tavoris Cloud in the art of boxing and scored a 12-round unanimous decision victory to win the IBF light-heavyweight title. After all these years, how is Hopkins still getting the job done, and who might he take on next? We'll tell you.


We discuss whether it was the Seahawks or 49ers who got the best bang for the buck in their moves to acquire receivers Percy Harvin and Anquan Boldin, and in a word, we describe DeAndre Jordan's ridiculous dunk over Brandon Knight in the Clippers-Pistons game Sunday night!

All this and much more in this week's edition of The Bleacher Briefings podcast!
