I’ll see you in a minute.” Then added, “that was cool”.

It should have been a great night for OKC’s Russell Westbrook. He made history with the highest scoring triple double in playoff history with 51 points, 13 assists and 10 rebounds Wednesday night against the Houston Rockets, but the Rockets came on strong in the 4th and Westbrook went cold. The Thunder is now down 0-2 in the series. Rockets 115, Thunder 111.

The Golden State Warriors were without Kevin Durant Wednesday night but still managed to pull out a game 2 win at home against the Portland Trailblazers. Coach Kerr hasn’t decided if KD will play on Saturday when the series heads to Portland for game 3. Warriors 110, Trailblazers 81.

Rounding out the night, the Washington Wizards beat the Atlanta Hawks to go up 2-0 in the series.

Pats Team To Beat, Cowboys’ Romo Suffers Serious Injury, Aaron Rodgers Avenges Last Season Loss

FOOTBALL

Another exciting weekend of football. In the NFL, the defending Super Bowl Champs, New England Patriots continued to impress with a big win over the Buffalo Bills on Sunday. The Bills came out to an early lead but then the Pats found their groove and between Julian Edelman and Rob Gronkowski, the Pats opened up the game and even with a valiant effort by the Bills in the 4th quarter, the Pats held off for the win. The Pats are clearly the team to beat in the AFC east. Patriots 40, Bills 32.

 

Tony Romo The Dallas Cowboys suffered a huge loss in the third quarter against the Philadelphia Eagles when QB Tony Romo was slammed to the ground as he was trying to recover a fumble. Reports from the team say that Romo fractured his left collarbone (same injury he had in 2010).  Romo could be out for 6-8 weeks. The Cowboys already lost their top receiver Dez Bryant for 6-12 weeks so losing their QB could mean a disastrous rest of the season. Cowboys 20, Eagles 10.

Aaron Rodgers and the Green Bay Packers avenged their NFC title game meltdown last year against the Seattle Seahawks. In a physical matchup and down 17-16 in the fourth quarter, Rodgers found a weakness in the Seattle D and exploited the holes to come back and win 27-17. The Seahawks are now 0-2.
