LeBron Scores Early And Often, Mitchell Makes Statement, Rockets Win, Gronk Derby Bound


Wednesday night NBA playoff highlights:

LeBron James scored early and often to lead the Cavaliers to a game 2 win over the Indiana Pacers. LeBron finished with 46 points in a 100-97 victory to even the series 1-1.

Utah Jazz rookie Donovan Mitchell is making a statement. In his first two playoff games he’s scored 55 points, the most points by a guard in the beginning two games of the postseason. Michael Jordan previously held the record in 1985 with 53 points in his initial two postseason games. Jazz have now tied the series against the Oklahoma City Thunder  1-1.

The Houston Rockets are making the postseason look easy as they cruised to a 102-82 victory over the Minnesota Timberwolves. They lead the series 2-0.

Horse Racing

New England Patriots tight end Rob Gronkowski bougth a stake in the Kentucky Derby horse named after him. The owners of  the 3 year old thoroughbred “Gronkowski” are big Patriots fans and named their horse after one of their favorite players. Gronkowski plans to meet his namesake (currently a 30-1 odd favorite) sometime before the Derby on May 5th.  Gronkowski said, “It will be a new experience. Hopefully it will be something I like. I like new hobbies.”
