In the NBA, Houston was looking to finally bury their rivals. The Dallas Mavericks pretty much collapsed and even though they won one game, they still seemed to be on life support. With the series back in Houston, James Harden came to play in MVP form and put up 28 points to help them cruise past the Mavericks. The Rockets now await the winner of the Spurs/Clippers series. Houston 103, Dallas 94.
Speaking of the Spurs/Clippers series, the teams met Tuesday night for a crucial Game 5 clash with the series tied at 2 games a piece. History says that the team that wins Game 5 of a 7 game series wins the series 82% of the time. The Clippers came out red hot as they always do, with power dunks from Blake Griffin and DeAndre Jordan, but in the second half, the Clippers seem to have a way of just melting. The Spurs took advantage of some late game sloppiness, and snuck away from LA with the win. So they lead 3-2 with the series headed back to San Antonio. But you can’t count a super talented team like the Clippers out just yet. San Antonio 111, LA Clippers 107.
Finally, in some news out of Baltimore, the Orioles will play the White Sox Wednesday in what will be a first in the history of baseball. Because of the riots and strife in Baltimore, the two teams will meet at Camden Yards and play a game that is not open to the public. So they will be playing competitive baseball in a stadium that fits 46,000, but there won’t be a single person in the stands. So that means no cheering ovations, no boos, not even a peep. What a strange affair for both teams.No comments
