Game 5 NBA Finals Monday Night W/O Draymond Green, Penguins Win Stanley Cup, Creator Wins Belmont Stakes

Big weekend in sports!


The Golden State Warriors stole a game 4 in Cleveland on Friday night to lead the best of seven series 3-1. Game 5 is back in California Monday night. If the Cavaliers lose, the series is over and the Warriors will have won back to back NBA Championships. Unfortunately for the Warriors,  one of their best players, Draymond Green is suspended for Monday night’s game for a flagrant foul he committed during the last few minutes of game 4. The foul against LeBron James was called a, “retaliatory swipe of his hand to the groin”.  According to the NBA, Draymond wouldn’t have been suspended for game 5 just for this foul alone but with the number of flagrant fouls his committed through the postseason, this penalty was appropriate.  Many in the sports world think the penalty is excessive and could affect the rest of the series. Must watch game, Monday 9:00 pm EST ABC.


Sidney CrosbyWith a win over the San Jose Sharks, the Pittsburgh Penguins took home the Stanley Cup for the 4th time in franchise history. The Penguins beat the Sharks 4-2 in the best of seven Finals. The Penguins’ Captain Sidney Crosby took home the MVP honors, the Conn Smythe trophy, and according to his coaches and teammates, there was no one more deserving.


In the 3rd leg of the Triple Crown series, the Belmont Stakes, Creator won by a photo finish, just edging out Destin. Creator finished 13th in the Kentucky Derby and didn’t even compete in the Preakness. The Preakness winner, Exaggerator, went off as the favorite but only finished in 11th place. There was considerably less hype for the Belmont Stakes this year as there wasn’t a Triple Crown Contender like American Pharoah who caught the racing world by storm when he won all three races last year.
