First off, today the NBA playoffs continue. Who’s gonna take their Game 3’s ? In the East, the Bulls and Hawks are tied at 1-1, and the series is in Atlanta tonight. The Bulls fell in Game 1 after Derrick Rose tweaked his ankle again, but the Bulls stole the show in Game 2 with a huge late three from Bogans.
In the West, the Lakers travel to Dallas down 2-0. The Lakers are in a huge hole, and are without Ron Artest tonight after Artest got suspended for a flagrant foul that was committed in the last seconds of Game 2. For the Lakers, trust issues were brought up by Andrew Bynum, and there is certainly a lack of chemistry for the back to back NBA champs. Kobe Bryant had a chance to take to win the game late in Game 2, but failed. Phil Jackson has got to motivate these guys to win because it’s a must win tonight in Dallas.
For the Mavericks, Dirk Nowitzki has been great. So far in the conference semifinals, Dirk has outplayed Kobe, averaged 38 minutes a game, shot 53% from the field, 60% from three point field, 90% from the charity stripe, averaged 10.5 rebounds a game, 2.5 assists, and 26.0 points per game.
Memphis is back home Saturday against the Thunder, and the series is 1-1. Also, the Heat travel to Boston with a 2-0 lead on Saturday as well.
Second, if you like boxing, tune into the Manny Pacquio and Shane Mosley fight on Saturday. It’s gotten a lot of hype this week, and shouldn’t disappoint. I’m taking Pacquio over Mosley.
Third, the Kentucky Derby is on Saturday as well for all you horse fans. Get your bets made on the winning horse. Dialed In is he early favorite with a 4-1 line.
Fourth, the Twins go to Fenway to take on the Red Sox tonight. Should be interesting, and congratulations to Francisco Liriano for throwing a n0-hitter against the rival White Sox. I witnessed and saw it on television while at the bowling alley. Not to mention, for all that said since Liriano had so many walks, that does not diminsh the no-hitter. It is still a great achievement. Scott Baker takes on Tim Wakefield at 6:10 p.m.
Fifth, the ACC is going to miss Maryland men’s basketball coach Gary Williams as he is retiring.
Sixth, Brett Favre says he has interest in coaching and TV work. What do you think he should do? He’d be a great quarterbacks coach. Wouldn’t mind him on ESPN either.
Also, Gus Johnson and CBS are breaking apart. Wow, that means no more Gus calling great finishes in the NCAA tournament.
That’s it for today, have a great weekend!
