It was a busy weekend in the world of sports — especially if you were Sergio Garcia’s pitching wedge on 17 at TPC Sawgrass.

In the NBA, LeBron took a seat but the Heat took command in Game 3 against the Bulls, while three other upset-minded underdogs made their case at home . On the diamond, some Yankee drama took center stage in Kansas City, the umpires were in the news again for all the wrong reasons and the Cubs locked down their first baseman of the future. Meanwhile, Matt Kenseth came out on top at Darlington, the NHL playoffs kicked into full gear and Titus Young, again, ended up on the wrong side of the law .

With so much going on, we don’t blame you if you didn’t catch everything, but we’ve got your back. Here is some of the other sports news you may have missed while you were celebrating Mother's Day weekend:
