What a whimsical weekend in the world of sports! I just love alliteration as if you couldn’t tell! The playoffs kicked off in my favorite sport as the National Basketball Association was balling yesterday with four games in action as the 8th seeded Utah Jazz was pounded by #1 seed San Antonio Spurs 106-91 with a double-double from Tim Duncan as the Spurs take the first game in the series, the 3rd seeded LA Lakers literally spanked the 6th seeded Denver Nuggets 103-88 as Kobe Bryant blasted the Nuggets with 31 points as the Lakers go one up, 4th seeded Boston Celtics was crushed by the 5th seeded Atlanta Hawks 83-74 as Josh ‘Smooth’ Smith had a game high of 22 points and put in work in the paint with 18 rebounds and Hawks take the first game of series, while the Celtics may be without Rajon Rondo for the second game as he was arguing a call and bumped into a ref and was promptly ejected from the game and in the final game on Sunday, the 4th seeded Memphis Grizzlies had the game under complete control but the 5th seeded Lob City Clippers made their run and came back down from 20 to steal the game with Nick Young scoring 19 points to lead the series 1-0. The winners in game one on Saturday were Miami Heat, the Oklahoma City Thunder, surprisingly the Orlando Magic and the Chicago Bulls. However comma there two big losers as well as the Bulls lose their reining MVP Derrick Rose for remainder of the playoffs and several months thereafter with a torn ACL in his left knee and some experts feel the Bulls championship is over including yours truly and the NY Knicks also lose a valuable with the same injury in Iman Shumpert.
The National Hockey League was skating on the iceeee last yesterday as their playoffs continues as game one kicked off for the Eastern Conference semi-final with the New Jersey Devils losing to the Philadelphia Flyers in overtime 4-3 as Danny Briere scored 2 goals, but the most important goal came in overtime and in game two of the Western Conference semi-finals to the Flyers take a 1-0 series lead and the Nashville Predators was outskated by the Phoenix Coyotes 5-3 with a goal and assist from Ryan Suter to help the Coyotes take a crucial 2-0 series lead. The winners in game one in the conference semi-final were the New York Rangers and the LA Kings on Saturday.
