NHL Playoffs & NBA scores, Dwayne Wade & The Olympics & Sacramento Kings: 4/13, Vol. 120, 1st Edt'n

There is no pain Jesus can't feel, no hurt He cannot heal, all things work according to His perfect will. No matter what you're going through, remember God is only using you, for the battle is not yours…it's the Lord's! Good morning and welcome back to your Spiritual Sports Segment on Rhema Gospel Radio better than when you heard it yesterday, I’m C.E.E.J.A.Y!  Le’ go!
The National Hockey League kicked of its second wave of round one games in the playoffs as the Washington Capitals were SHUT OUT by the defending champion Boston Bruins 2-1 in overtime with a goal from Chris Kelly, the San Jose Sharks also defeated the St. Louis Blues in overtime 3-2 as Martin Havlat netted two goals, while the Chicago Blackhawks lost in overtime to the Phoenix Coyotes 3-2 with the O/T goal from Martin Hanzal and the New York Rangers skated past the Ottawa Senators 4-2 with four players getting a goal to help the cause.

The National Basketball Association was balling last night with five games on tap featuring two nationally televised games and first game featured a potential Eastern Conference showdown as the Chicago Bulls got the best of Miami Heat in overtime 96-86 with 19 points and 11 rebounds from Carlos Boozer, the Memphis Grizzlies was blasted by the San Spurs 107-97 as Tim “Big Fundamental” Duncan poured in 28 points and grabbed 12 rebounds, the defending champion Dallas Mavericks cruised to victory over the Golden State Warriors 112-102 with 27 points from Dirk Nowitzki for the second nationally televised game, while the Detroit Pistons annihilated and befuddled the Charlotte Bobcats 109-85 as Greg Monroe had a double-double with 25 points and 11 rebounds and the Lob City Clippers crushed the Minnesota Timberwolves 95-82 with a double-double from Blake Griffin.

In sporting news, he has changed his tune!  A day after stating “guys should be compensated” for playing over the summer in the Olympics, Dwayne Wade later clarified that he never said he needed to paid to play and tweeted pride for his country motivates him more than any $$$ amount.

After the drama unfolded with keeping the Sacramento Kings in their beloved city, about two dozen of city’s most powerful business leaders sent a letter to NBA Commissioner David Stern urging him to force the Maloof brothers into selling the team in order for a new arena to be built can proceed.  The leaders feel the brothers are not negotiating in good faith and they also question whether they have the finances and the motivation.  The letter to the commissioner stated in part “we feel it is time for the Maloofs’ to sell their ownership of the franchise, for the good of the city and in the interest of advancing Sacramento's effort to build a downtown arena.”  As of the now, the two points that are stalling the process are environmental and pre-development costs.

Scott ranked 33rd on the list for career starts and he also amassed 20 top five finishes along with 147 top 10 finishes.  In 1999, Scott was inducted into the International Motorsports Hall of Fame and as of yesterday, Scott headlined nominees to be inducted into the 2013 NASCAR Hall of Fame class, becoming the first African-American to do so.
