Always Dreaming Wins Derby, Cavs Sweep 2nd Round, Porzingis Confusing Tweet


“Always Dreaming” ran away with the Kentucky Derby Saturday night. The “Run for the Roses” took place on a muddy track where many horses were having bad trips.  Always Dreaming, trained by Todd Fletcher and ridden by John Valazquez, looked solid coming out of the gate and rode to a 2 3/4 length victory. Fletcher is used to winning, but has had problems at the Derby in the past. He previously had won only one 1 Derby in 45 starts.  Always Dreaming will now rest up and be back on the track in 2 weeks for the second leg of the Triple Crown, the Preakness Stakes on May 20th.


The Cleveland Cavaliers swept the second round of the Eastern Conference semi-final against the Toronto Raptors. The Cavs have now won 8 games in a row in the post-season and will have a week off before facing an opponent in the Eastern conference final. LeBron James proved once again he’s one of the greatest recording 6 straight games with 30 or more points in a playoff game. Cleveland 109, Toronto 102.

In other playoff news, with the Boston Celtics loss on Sunday, the Washington Wizards tied the series at 2-2. James Harden came out strong with 28 points to help his Rockets even the series with the San Antonio Spurs at 2-2. The Golden State Warriors are up 3-0 against the Utah Jazz and will play game four tonight.

The New York Knicks Kristaps Porzingis sent out a confusing tweet over the weekend with just the words, “LA Clippers and three smiley face emoji’s”, suggesting his interest in being traded.  Many, including myself, were shocked he’d be so bold in showing his interest in another team. According to Porzingis, however, his account was hacked and he never intended to send this type of tweet.
