NBA Playoffs Update:

  • Portland gets Browbeaten again, this time very severely, as AD does pretty much anything he wants, and the Pelicans look ready to take on all comers in the Western Conference. #Pelicans #TrailBlazers
  • Timber!!!! That’s the sound of Houston’s veneer of invincibility getting split in half…. well, at least their lead in the first round series just got halved… and look for this thing to go back to H-town all knotted up at 2. Not good for the Rockets, who are long on bravado, but short in terms of substance. #Rockets #Timberwolves
  • Heat beat a hasty retreat in the face of ultra-aggressive Ben Simmons, and a Sixers squad that fought through some unsightly sloppiness. #Sixers #Heat
  • Ingles couldn’t have gone off wilder, and as for Rubio, he was certainly wearing the magical ruby sneakers tonight.  Jazz and their circa 1986 Houston Astros/desert bloom unis dig a hole and bury the gutless Thunder.  Put out an APB for Russell Athletic.  You were missing in action tonight.  #Jazz #Thunder

NHL Playoffs Update:

  • Backstrom and the Caps were by no means perfect, but they had staying power good enough to capitalize on plenty of mental lapses by the Jackets. This has all the hallmarks of a long, drawn out 7-game series, and the bad news for Columbus is that they did not say goodbye to Washington when they could have … and now their opponents are back from the dead. #Capitals #BlueJackets
  • Maples stick to their game plan and grind out a gutsy road win in Game 5… like Pittsburgh, Boston just can’t do things the easy way … #Bruins #MapleLeafs
  • Lightning put in-over-their-head Devils out of their ever loving misery with 2 in the 3rd. Nice work, Nikita! #Devils #Lightning

NBA Playoffs Update:

  • Maker’s block-a-thon drives the Celtics batty … yeah a +23 rating in 24 minutes says it all. #Celtics #Bucks
  • Wiz kids clearly prefer to have play dates at home in the good old USA; Know Nothing rally turned playoff game reinvigorates weary Washington. #Wizards #Raptors
  • Anxiety level in Cleveland is definitely spiking, and Indiana bounces happily on its Bogo stick and clears the Cavs with a mammoth 2nd half rush. #Cavaliers #Pacers

NHL Playoffs Update:

  • Nashville looked shocked and appalled after a couple of mistakes by Pekka open the door for the pesky Avs. #Avs #Predators
  • Flyers prove to be surprisingly uncourteous guests, as Courtier slips one by Murray in the waning moments. By losing focus, Pens have now added a significant burden to their 3-peat workload. #Penguins #Flyers
  • Maker’s block-a-thon drives the Celtics batty … yeah a +23 rating in 24 minutes says it all. #Celtics #Bucks

MLB Update:

  • Another left coast team left in the dust by the rampaging Red Sox. #RedSox #Athletics
  • Braun turn on another one as Brewers continue to bash the competition. But let’s remember, they’re playing the mighty Marlins. #Brewers#Marlins\
  • Astros give the pasty faced Pale Hose a first class ass kicking. #Astros #WhiteSox
  • Gsellman earns rave reviews for doing nearly everything in Mets’ defeat of the Braves. #Mets #Braves
  • Have the Rays learned how to hit, or have the Twins just forgotten how to field? #Twins #Rays
  • Phillies have something to say about who has baseball bragging rights in PA. #Pirates #Phillies
  • Lead Husky, Max Scherzer, pulls his Nationals through with a very heavy duty performance. #Nationals #Dodgers
  • Good lord! Lourdes had an impressive debut in Toronto’s toppling of the very average Yanks. #BlueJays #Yankees

MLB Update:

  • Could it be that Bryant and Schwarber are finally starting to warm up? At least the Cubs can seem to count on Lester. #Cardinals #Cubs
  • New uniform, but the same results for Jake, who revels in making the Pirates look ridiculous. #Pirates #Phillies
  • For starters, Harvey’s performance was clearly sub-standard. For the Mets, is this the beginning of the end, or just the end of the beginning? #Mets #Braves
  • Brewers blast their way to victory behind the very able Cain and the Hebrew Hammer. #Marlins #Brewers
  • Yankees looked more like the Yankees today in winning tight fight with the Jays. #Yankees #BlueJays
  • Angels continue to go through Hell against the Red Sox. #Angels #RedSox

NBA Playoffs Update:

  • No magic to the Pels’ spell over Portland … it’s simply spelled “AD”. #TrailBlazers #Pelicans
  • Embiid’s mask must’ve really scared the Heat, who laid down in Quarter 4, and now the Sixers have the series lead. #Sixers #Heat
  • Warriors turn their ankles, but no matter, they still roll over the Spurs with substantial ease. #Warriors #Spurs

NHL Playoffs Update:

  • The flask is more than half full for Rask and his bountiful Bruins, who are really pouring it on against the withering Leafs. #Bruins #MapleLeafs
  • Caps continue their surprising bounce-back action against the prematurely jubilant Jackets. Now they go back to DC with a bit of momentum and perhaps belief, which could carry them forward in Game 5. #Capitals #BlueJackets

NHL Playoffs Update:

  • Crossed up by Crosby from the start, Fly boys get rudely thrown on their keisters by Keystone State visitors. #Penguins #Flyers
  • Looks like losing did light a fire under the fighting Lightning. #Devils #Lightning
  • Predators go from hunter to hunted, but get rescued in the tick of time. All that matters is they bridged the gap between games in the Bridestone by owning one of the games on the road and now they’re in control of the series. #Predators #Avalanche
  • With the state of the Ducks’ offense permanently in park, Hertl mercifully puts Anaheim out of its ever loving misery. Last year’s aberration of post-season offense seems like a very distant, fond memory. #Sharks #Ducks

NBA Playoffs Update:

  • Jazz beat the OKC spaz attack by simply hanging tough until crunch time, at which point Melo, Westy, and Pauli proceeded to show their true, greedy and irresponsible colors. That panic attack, characterized by crazy threes, out of control drives and turnovers, was calmly presided over by one Billy Donovan, who as usual, refused to get too involved and simply watched this home invasion turned 5-alarm fire run its course, like Nero watching Rome burn. Forget OKC,… even if they figure out a way to win this series … stick a fork in them because they’re done. #Thunder #Jazz
  • Let’s get one thing straight. Houston is not playing very well … on either side of the ball. But Minnesota was simply abysmal in terms of offense, and much of blame should fall on Tom T., who has never demonstrated any ability to coordinate a playoff worthy attack. This series has become practically unwatchable, and somebody needs to give this pack of wolves either a collectively lobotomy or maybe hypnotism would be a good idea … here is how you throw the ball inside, here is how you set a pick .. etc. #Timberwolves #Rockettes
  • As usual, LeBron responds by super-sizing his game, and Cleveland holds on for a narrow, series evening victory. However, the Cavs will be woefully exposed while fighting for their lives at Bankers Life, perhaps with Love’s hand in a cast or a protective glove. #Pacers #Cavaliers

MLB Update:

  • Kuhl and the gang buck up after their post-Harrison depression when Hurdle shakes up the line up, including finding a good spot for Freese. #Pirates #Rockies
  • Porcello and Devers take the Red Sox happily into never never land — they’ve never started a season this red hot. Oh yeah! And instant heartburn for Mikey S., the big red tomato, and his overblown Angels. #RedSox #Angels
  • A temporary reprieve for the fragile Mets, whose yo yo year continues unabated, with Yoenis the centerpiece of a crazy 8th inning rally against the gutless Nats. #Nationals #Mets
  • Astros discover that not only do the Mariners need a compass,… they don’t even have a pulse. #Astros #Mariners
  • 25 hits and 3 runs? Are you kidding? No Puerto Rico, this is not how baseball is supposed to be played, though this is the way it goes in the AL Comedy Central. #Indians #Twins
  • Impotent Chisox go from being Punch and Judy to simply punch drunk. #WhiteSox #Athletics
  • Jays pump and dump the rudderless Royals. #Royals #BlueJays
  • Christian’s excellent catch ensures the unthinkable, unpardonable sin doesn’t occur … a loss to Cincinnati. #Reds #Brewers
  • Detroit flexes against Baltimore with a walkoff from its own macho Machado. #Orioles #Tigers

MLB Update:

  • Jack of all trades Jackie Bradley jacks one out of Halo House … very nice! #RedSox #Angels
  • Marlins come into Yankee Stadium and really smell the place up, with some major pollution from the bat of Realmuto, along with a terrible Tanaka and some shoddy fielding. Boone’s goons are now even steven, and falling further and further behind the Bosox. #Marlins #Yankees
  • Blue Jays stay well positioned with a convincing conquest of the pitiful Royals; yes, KC, this is what happens when your established stars stray and nobody’s cultivating the farm system. #Royals #BlueJays
  • Rocky road continues to be paved with great execution; Colorado coerces another win against the pouting Pirates. Yes, J. Hay is gone for 6 weeks … GET OVER IT!!!
  • Geo comes to his favorite place on earth and gives the free falling Mets a push back into reality. #Nationals #Mets
  • Cubbies should’ve never crawled out of their Cubby holes; they looked downright disinterested against old man Wainwright. #Cubs #Cardinals
  • D-backs are displaying some pretty solid pitching, and that makes them a bit scary given what they’ve shown they can do at the plate. Snakes slither to another win over stale SF. #Giants #Diamondbacks

NBA Playoffs Update:

  • Jaylen was playing some serious ball tonight, and Boston runs rings around Milwaukee with Rozier… making the Bucks dead ducks. #Bucks #Celtics
  • Toronto just had too much firepower for the weary Wizards, who seemed to have match up problems all over the court, including on the inside dealing with the uncommon valor of Valanciunas. #Wizards #Raptors
  • Blazers get upended yet again by some very bellicose Pelicans, who are rampaging behind a rejuvenated Rajan Rondo and the very hard working Holiday. What this team would look like with Cousins is scary, but right now, they have the tools and the ‘tude to hang with anyone in the West. #Pelicans #TrailBlazers
