12:13 PM ET: LeBron Takes Over China, Manchester United Wins in PK's
The United States used a 25-11 point 3rd quarter to pull away from Yao Ming and China in the first preliminary game in group B. LeBron took the game over with some fierce blocks and highlight reel dunks finishing with 18 points. Dwight Howard chipped in 13 to help the U.S. combo take down Yao Ming and Yi Jianlian in our Streak matchup. Yao played well for a athlete coming off a severe foot injury but Yi never got into a groove and only added 9 to Yao's 13. Also, Manchester United defeated Portsmouth in penalty kicks 3-1 after 0-0 full-time draw. Due to the match being in tournament format, there was no "draw" involved. Our mistake here at Streak headquarter, our apologies to the users who took the Portsmouth draw.
Best bets: LeBron + Howard, Mets, Cubs and Nevada Little League.
Yesterday's results: Saturday night was one of the lowest winning PCT ever recorded in Streak history with users only winning 20% of all matchups. Some big streak breakers : Chicago Cubs with 98%, Candace Parker 91% and Arizona with 96%. The day would have been even worst if it wasn't for Shelton, Connecticut's two homeruns in their final at-bat to move on to the Little League World Series over Manchester, New Hampshire. We need someone to catch fire on the leaderboard because there's only 5 days left in our insiders-only game, can you be the one to win the $4,500?
