In the NBA, the Washington Wizards were looking to force a Game 7 as they hoped to win Game 6 in front of their home crowd.  However, the Wizards are at the bottom of the totem poll in Washington D.C. Sports (behind the Redskins, Orioles, Nationals, Capitals, and even the Georgetown Hoyas).  So their crowd wasn’t exactly raucous.  Plus, the Wizards playoff inexperience showed as they fell behind early.  But, late in the 4th quarter, the Wizards finally rallied back and took a 1-point lead.  Unfortunately for Washington, it wouldn’t matter, as they had a complete melt down and the Pacers took the win to eliminate the Wizards. They will now move on to play the Miami Heat in the Eastern Conference Finals.  Indiana 93, Washington 80.

Then, in Los Angeles, the Clippers were looking to stay focused after a disappointing defeat in Game 5 when they blew a 7 point lead with under a minute to go.   They needed to forget that game and set their minds to winning this one and sending it back to Oklahoma City.   They tried to keep up with Durant and the Thunder, but those are some tough guys and they would not go out easy.   OKC pulled back in the second half to take command of the game, and grabbed the win on the road.  So we will have a #1 vs. #2 Finals match-up between the San Antonio Spurs and the Oklahoma City Thunder.  OKC 104, LAC 98.


Finally, in some wild, insane news out of the NFL, if you call former New England Patriots tight end Aaron Hernandez is currently awaiting his trial for murder in 2013 of a fellow club goer with whom he was annoyed.  In Thursdays’s news it was released that authorities suspect that Hernandez was involved in a double homicide in 2012 as well.  They have evidence that he was in the car that gunned down two men at a traffic stop.  Keep in mind that if this holds up, then the New England Patriots played their entire 2012 season with a murderer on their team.  It goes to show you that you never really know your co-workers in their entirety.
