Paul George was AMAZING in last night’s game 5 win vs. the Heat! In the win, he scored 37 points (21 in a monster 4th quarter), grabbed 6 steals and 6 boards. The Heat fell on LeBron James foul troubles, he had 3 by half and 5 at the end of the game. He only managed to play 24 minutes scoring 7 points on 2-10 shooting. He had to make a tough decision when he beat Paul George at the top of the key and went down low, instead of taking it in for a GW layup with the d lurking, he dished it to Chris Bosh, a great 3 pt shooter and he came close but missed! The Pacers secured the game and forced a Gm.6 at Miami. What a run for the Pacers, the storyline? “What’s next”! The Kings had all the momentum on a 3-1 to 4-3 comeback and Chicago fans went silent. But… These former Stanley Cup Champions came back, tied the game at 4 before OT and won it all in 2OT with another goal! The Kings may be up 3-2 in the series, but this is as close as the Rangers v. Canadiens series. Talking about those blue-shirts, the Rangers have a chance at clinching a spot in the finals with a win tonight! GOOOOOOO...Read More
Month: May 2014
After a disappointing 5-3 loss to the Pirates yesterday. The Mets fired hitting coach Dave Hudgens after the game after some really poor hitting this season and the past 3 with him. The Mets also announced the release of Veteran closer Jose Valverde after posting a 5.66 ERA this season with a 1-1 record. Look at this now. This all started when Bobby Parnell hurt himself and was ruled out for the season on opening day, that sent the Mets in panic mode for relief pitching. That came to 2 releases of veteran relievers who struggled mightily and call-ups of starters in the minors to move starters to the pen! Hitting must improve for NYM with a team .237 Batting Average with 186 RBI’s and 407 hits. They only got 195 runs and 123 extra base-hits. That led to the firing of Hudgens, Lamar Johnson will fill in for him. To add to the news, Mets young star, minor league pitcher, Noah Synderguard is getting his arm checked in NY today to check for a possible injury. Tonight, Jon Niese is on the hill for the Mets while Edinson Volquez is pitching for the Pirates… Also in the MLB, after Josh Beckett’s no-no on Sunday, Hyun-Jin Ryu almost got one of his own going perfect for 7.1 innings with 7 K’s. He collapsed in the 8th with a total...Read More
Happy Memorial Day! Yesterday was an amazing day in sports! Here’s a recap on all the big news! 1- Josh Beckett throws no-hitter: Dodgers veteran pitcher, Josh Beckett threw his 1st career no-hitter against the Phillies on Sunday. Beckett walked 3 and struck out 6 in the Dodgers 6-0 win. Adrian Gonzalez went 3-4 with 2 RBI’s in the win… 2- Rangers defeat Canadiens: The New York Rangers are now 1 win a way from the Stanley Cup Championship after beating the Montreal Candiens 3-2 in OT. Martin St.Louis carried the Rangers through these playoffs after his mom passed away, he has played so good in the playoffs. Now he has a OT winning goal to show off. Carl Hagelin scored a Short Handed goal and Derek Brassard scored too. Game 5 is on Tuesday when the Rangers will head to Bell Centre with a 3-1 series lead and a chance to finish history. 3- Ryan Hunter-Reay wins Indy 500: Finally there’s an American kissing the bricks!

This is Johnson’s 1st win of the year and he is in 6th place standing...Read More
Jacob deGrom made his 2nd Major League start yesterday for the Mets. He took a loss in his 1st game against the Bronx Bombers despite only letting up 1 run. In this game against the Dodgers, he got a little roughed up going 6 innings, striking out 4 batters and letting up 3 homers (all solo) and taking the loss. This is a start to learn from for deGrom. deGrom’s pitching has been great so far despite 2 pitching losses. The game came down to 1 play, with 1 out in the 8th inning, the Mets walked Yasiel Puig to put runners on the corners setting up a double play. Hanley Ramirez was up for LA, he bounced one to the pitcher, Jeurys Familia, Familia turned around to throw to 2nd base but 2 Mets covered 2nd and Familia hesitated to throw, once he threw into the confusion, runners were safe at home and 1st! A disappointing mental error charged the Mets from getting the win. A 9th inning rally couldn’t do anything when David Wright surprisingly struck out to end a great hitting day. The Final score- Mets 3 Dodgers 4 On a personal note, congrats to our southern friend Alan on the 2 wins by the Dodgers… ROLL TIDE The Spurs dominated the Thunder last night winning 112-77 and completely shutting down the Thunder’s offensive...Read More
