BLACKHAWKS 5 DUCKS 3 F...The INDIAN HEAD strikes as the "POND" quickly turns into the MADHOUSE of Orange County, CA for a HAWKS Game 7 "W"!..."FROZEN TALK" 1901 West Madison going WESTERN Conference Champions 2K15! #CHIvsANA #FearTheIndianHead #OneGoal #HawksNation #BecauseItsTheCup #StanleyCupPlayoffs #CHIWins4-3

It didn't take long and to be honest the Chicago Blackhawks played their best game of the series in Game 7 from top to bottom. The Bluedude would love to be on that "Red-Eye" Charter back to Chi-City with Shamp-Pag-Na flowing!

The Hawks rode their #1 Man Captain Serious in Center Jonathan Toews and once again he shows why he is the best leader in Ice Games and one of the best in all of professional sports. Toews "Lights the Lamp" x 2 for the Hawks fist two scores and they never looked back. It was 2-0 after one frame Hawks lead as Ducks blue-paint tenant Frederik Andersen's Woes continues from games 5 and 6.

In the 2nd frame it was Brandon Saad and Marian Hossa scoring and the Indian Head led 4-0 putting away the Ducks.  That Hossa score was huge as the Ducks Ryan Kesler beat Corey Crawford in the high-short corner of the net making it 4-1 right before the end of the 2nd frame.



The Hawks came out in the 3rd with a two-man advantage first then a one-man advantage and didn't capitalize which gave the Ducks a little momentum. Corey Perry score a little over midway through the 3rd as Team Webbed Feet had life making it 4-2. That lead lasted almost two minutes as Brent Seabrook score on the Hawks power play making it 5-2 as the Ducks Matt Beleskey score with just over a minute remaining as the Hawks will play for the Cup for the 3rd time since 2010.

"Craw-Dad" was sensational in net early as he stopped 35 of 38 SOG. Andersen just struggled and the Hawks knew he as struggling and took full advantage of it. Now Chicago has no time to rest as its off to Tampa on Tuesday Afternoon for a Wednesday Night Game 1...Hawks vs Bolts and this one should be a blast!

Congrats to my Boys for getting one step closer to Grant Park and that Parade Route as we are just 4 more wins away from Cup #3....

BLACKHAWKS vs DUCKS in the W.C.F. Game 7 going "FROZEN TALK" 1901 West Madison and the "Fight for LORD Stanley"...The INDIAN HEAD must let it all fly as its 60 minutes for a chance at the Cup!...Team WEBBED Feet will be flying high in front of the Home Folks as they have Home Ice for Game 7! #CHIvsANA #FearTheINDIANHead #MightyDucks #WCFGame7 #StanleyCupPlayoffs #BecauseItsTheCup

The Chicago Blackhawks and Anaheim Mighty Ducks have 60 minutes to decide who is going to represent the Western Conference in the "Fight for Lord Stanley" 2K15. After trading victories back and forth its stops at game 7 as both are in an elimination game. Corey Crawford and Frederik Andersen are in the blue-paint as its starts their for both squads.

GAME #7 OUTLOOK:

The gamesmanship between Coach Q and Coach B has been off the charts as we shall see more of that in game #7...

Ducks will want to start fast and if they jump out ahead on the scoreboard it will be really tough to come back in a game 7...

Captain Serious #19, the "Bison City Blur" #88, and Boss Hoss #81 will be on the same line from the jump how do the Ducks counter?

Corey Perry must shine in Game 7 as Ryan Getzlaf must do the same...

Corey Crawford and Frederik Andersen must bring their A-Game...in the blue-paint

Blackhawks 31-0 when leading after two frames in 2014-15...

First team to score in this series has won...

Blackhawks Duncan Keith dba D.K. has been the best player on the ice a lot for the Indian Head does #2 from Sparty Land U.S.A. Hockey have enough left in the tank to go "Nut Factory" in Game 7?

Ryan Kesler has been "Big" but will he match up with #19 from the Hawks trying to take him away or go against a different line to try and wreak havoc...

Keep the "Frozen One" in your zone for extended time plays in your favor dba Puck Possession...

Neutral Zone Havoc who ever makes mistakes in this area will pay in Game 7 there is no going back...

Andrew Shaw #65 in your Hawks Program might be the Indian Head's M.V.P. thus far...can he create more magic in game 7?

Ducks Nation must be loud and try and carry their boys to the finish line as its up to the Hawks to take them right out of the game...

Ducks Defense must contain Patrick Kane in "Open Ice"...

Game 7 is here and someone has to go home with an "L"...

DODGERS 0 CARDINALS 3 F...REDBIRDS Lackey was all over that DODGER Blue Line Up as St. Louis does it without HOLLIDAY and ADAMS on the Line Up Card!..."WEEKEND BENDERS" from new BUSCH as STL > LAD again! #LADvsSTL #DodgerNation #BaseballTownUSA #SeniorCircuitBusiness2K15

The Los Angeles Dodgers came in with the thought its three of 162 but its the St. Louis Cardinals who has put us in a blender the last two playoffs. "Matheny Ball" dba Redbirds Baseball just plodding along as though this one is just as important as the one before this one and the on after this one..."Welcome to Baseball Town USA" and Redbirds Nation!

It was Redbirds starter John Lackey going seven frames of five-hit hardball as he struck out nine and gave up just one free pass. That Redbirds Line Up Card with no Matt Holliday or Matt Adams was just fine as the Cards playing "Matheny Ball" is just "Next Man Up". I know you here that a lot but for the Redbirds it rings true in that clubhouse!

The Cards got to Dodgers starter Mike Bolsinger as he gave up one in the 1st, one in the 3rd and one in the 7th. The runs scored inn the 3rd and 7th were compliments Randal Grichuk and Jhonny Peralta two-baggers.

After the Redbirds Pen set up St. Louis Hardball's Captain Save-A-Game Trevor Rosenthal he grabs his 14th save of 2015. The Redbirds move to 32-16 while the Dodger fall to 28-19 and expect nothing different come October with these two teams battling  for the right to represent the Senior Circuit for the 2K15 Fall Classic...

Dodger Justin Turner and J-Roll dba Jimmy Rollins combined to get 4 of the Dodgers six hits...

LIGHTNING 2 RANGERS 0 F..."Fight for LORD Stanley" as the BISHOP gives King HENRIK and the BLUE Shirts the 86 "Light the Lamp" Blues as the BOLTS are headed to CUP Final! #TBvsNYR #BoltsNation #BlueShirts #BecauseItsTheCup

It was a game a game seven that was going to come down to the two in and around the blue-paint. Yes with Lord Stanley's Cup for the taking in the next round the stakes couldn't get any higher. The Blues Shirts had King Henrik Lundqvist in net with the Bolts rolling with the unheralded but more than solid Ben Bishop putting in big-time work in these 2K15 Playoffs!

It was back and forth in the first two frames with both net miners holding their own as the game went scoreless through the first two frames. Before the 3rd frame started you had this gut feeling whoever "Lit the Lamp" first would not only lead the game but would have a decided advantage.

It was the Lightning's Alex Killorn with a nifty backhand right between the wickets of King Henrik not even two minutes into the 3rd giving the Bolts a 1-0 lead. That lead would hold up all the way past the middle of the 3rd when Ondrej Palat wrist one past King Henrik and that was huge as the Bolts would go up 2-0 never to give an inch after that.



Tampa goes onto win 2-0 and win game 7 as they capture the Prince of Wales Trophy for the NHL's Eastern Conference Winner. There was just 47 SOG between both teams with the Blue Shirts getting just 22 of that 47.  Bishop stopped 22 of 22 while King Henrik stopped 23 of 25 SOG.

The Bolts now await the winner of the Chicago/Anaheim Series as that goes to game 7 on Saturday in Anaheim...

ROYALS 8 CUBS 4 F...#BeRoyalKC goes "CHICKS dig the LONG Ball" at the "FRIENDLY CONFINES" as #RoyalsToWrigley appears to be a smashing success! #KCvsCHC #RoyalBlueNation #NorthSiders #MLBInterLeague

Neither Kansas City Royals starter Edison Volquez or Chicago Cubs starter Jake Arrieta was around to get a decision in a somewhat wild one at the "Friendly Confines" in Wrigleyville!  The Fireworks started early as the Royals first pitch they saw went souvenir setting the tone for that 8-4 Royals victory.

Arrieta first pitch "Express" was deposited right into the seats by Alcides Escobar making it 1-0 Royals. They get another bomb by Alex Gordon in the 2nd making it 2-0 Royals as Royals Nation took to the Twittisphere #RoyalsToWrigley as they took a 2-0 lead.

In the bottom half of the 3rd Kris Bryant doubles home Addison Russell making it 2-1 Royals after three. Salvador Perez goes deep in the 4th making it 3-1 Royals as Arrieta realizes now he is throwing B.P.! Eric Hosmer then doubles home Lorenzo Cain in the 6th making it 4-1 Royals as it looked to be a wash.

Then here came the Cubbies as Jorge Soler takes Volquez for a two-run blast in the 6th making it 4-3 Royals as both pitchers are sticking up the "Friendly Confines"! In the bottom half of the 7th Addison Russell takes Royals reliever Kelvin Herrera deep tying the game at 4-4 and we have a ball game.

The Cubs Pen though in the 8th could not hold the lead as K.C. scores a crooked three highlighted by a Cain RBI two-bagger and a two-base error making it 7-4 Royals. Escobar finishes the North Siders off with a RBI single for a final of 8-4 Royals.

K.C. moves to 29-18 while the Cubbies fall to 25-22 and stay away from that .500 mark North Siders that is your Kryptonite...

Cubs Nation all that #RoyalsToWrigley Stuff isn't that cool and don't get swept....      

SKILES the new O-MAGIC Lead Man!...Bluedude Sportstalk "MAKING NOISE" as Sparty's SCOTT SKILES gets his 4th Coaching Gig in the Logo with the Mouse Town MAGIC! @Magic #CoachSkilesBusiness #Sparty

The Orlando Magic made somewhat of a splash as they get one of their own back to lead the 2015-16 O-Magic back to hopefully NBA Southeast Prominence. Scott Skiles will be the 12th lead man to call X's and O's for the Mouse Town Magic as he once played for Orlando from 1989 - 1994.

Skiles 1st NBA coaching Gig was back in the 1999-2000 season with the Phoenix Suns through the 2001-2002 season and that was pre-Steve Nash, Shawn Marion, and Amare Stoudamire. He then led the Bulls from 2003-2007 and was with the Milwaukee Bucks from 2008-2013. That W-L was 443-433 and that would be average at best.

Video (Below) of Scott Skiles 30 assists vs Nuggets on December 30, 1990



Skiles will get a youthful but talented Magic Roster led by Combo Guard Victor Oladipo and Center Nikola Vucevic. He has all sorts of diamonds in the rough with SF Tobias Harris and 2014 Magic Lottery Pick PF Aaron Gordon.

The Magic also has a few picks in their back pocket for the 2015 NBA Draft with the #5 and #51 picks of that draft. I say they grab Myles Turner to add with Vucevic as you would have two rim-protectors.

Back in his college days Skiles was a nasty little PG with a drive and heart and determination like no other playing for the Michigan State Legend Jud Headcothe. Now he gets chance #4 with room to grow and nowhere to go but up...

WILLIE-CAULEY STEIN 2K15 NBA Draft Business in "SQUEEZE the ORANGE"...@THEWillieCS15 should be a "MONSTER" on the next level with that Football Background! @WCSBusiness #BBN #UK #WillieTrill #NBADraft2K15

Yes folks he is "Willie Trill" and he has "It" both on the Hardwood and off of it. The #BBN and #UK Fan Fav Willie Cauley-Stein I have a feeling will be all of that and bowl of buttery down smothered Grits with a side of Flap Jacks with extra syrup!

Did I not here Bird Man of "Gold Swagger" say Willie Cauley-Stein will be a player at the next level. The energy and athleticism and the Basketball IQ is off the charts. What does he remind you of the "Manimal" of Team 5,280 feet above ocean water in former Morehead State KY Star Kenneth Faried...but bigger and longer?

It was an Olathe, Kansas that Willie Cauley-Stein made his name as WR of the football team yes 6'11" at doing damage. It still beyond me how a kid of that caliber gets past Phog Allen and the Wheat Shockers or even Little Manhattan and K-State.

I am still thinking if UK has him for a full season last season that UK would have beat UConn as he and Lakers 2014 Lottery Pick Julius Randle would have been way too much inside the painted-area! Now we get W.C.S. of the #BBN fresh off three years at #UK ready to take on the Logo and someone in the middle to that #10 slot will be real happy getting a rim-protector on one end and a finisher and glass-eater on the other.

@THEwillieCS15 2014-15 #BBN Digits

39 Gms 8.9 ppg 6.4 rpg 1.7 blks 25.9 mins


What will W.C.S. #15 be on the next level as I say DeAndre Jordan but even better and that is one tall order...

NATS WERTH out until August with Two Fractures in Wrist!..."WORD around the WARNING Track" as Washington Hardball has a NATitude over losing Nuts & Bolts JAYSON WERTH to a Fractured Wrist...who takes his slot? @NATIONALS #JaysonWerthBusiness #NATSDepthChart2K15

Just like that the Washington Nationals with everything in place leading the NL East, Pitching coming around, Bam 34 hitting all sorts of souvenirs then this. Through numerous media outlets the Nats will lose LF Jayson Werth until August 2K15 as he is out with two small fractures in his left wrist.

Werth hitting just .208 with two bombs and twelve RBI's with 17 runs scored has been playing with the wrist since being hit on May 17th by a pitch. Now he will miss more time as he missed 81 games back in 2012 with an injury and played 147 games in 2014 staying off the D.L..

Looking ahead the Nats OF Depth Chart behind Werth:

Michael Taylor who has been platooning with Werth as he is hitting .219 with three bombs and thirteen RBI's.  Clint Robinson will be behind Taylor as all the Nats Outfielders Numbers will be picked up by one "Bam 34" Bryce Harper...as he will not slow down hitting .331 with 18 HR 43 RBI and 41 Runs...

CLADY out for 2015 Season for UNITED in ORANGE!..."SUNDAY TALK" going down the wrong road talking Season-Ending I.R. for Broncos All-Pro LT RYAN CLADY!

Through numerous media outlets the Denver Broncos will be all over other teams Training Camps and OTA's as they lose a key member of what is going to be yet again a top-rated NFL Offense. Left Tackle Ryan Clady went down in practice on Wednesday and it is being reported a Torn Left ACL that will require surgery and that leaves him on Season-Ending Injured Reserve.

Where does that leave United in Orange Prez John Elway and the Broncos...let's take a look at the present Broncos 2015 Depth Chart:

THIBS out as Bulls Lead Man..."SQUEEZE the ORANGE" talking NBA Coaches GUILLOTINE as the BULLS vs THIBS should have done a year ago at least but Guaranteed DUFFEL Bags stood in the way! #CoachThibs #BullsNation #BullsCoachingOpen

This is no surprise as the Chicago Bulls and Coach Tom Thibodeau have parted ways as the Bulls terminate the services of Thibs today effective immediately. The Bulls Brass led by John Paxson (Bulls Sr. VP of Ops) and Gar Forman (GM) unfortunately didn't fire themselves as well as it's a mess and I don't care how you slice it!  

Thibs performed well as the Bulls Lead Man but as a coach you have to be willing to try other ideas and not be stuck in your ways especially with no Chips under your belt. Yes the Bulls Brass reportedly try to get Thibs to lower minutes of players and play a lot of the young players but Thibs did what Thibs does and that is run that first rotation into the ground like its the Iditarod.

As far as the mess upstairs c'mon Pax and Gar haven't got it right yet and from the outside they are two guys you might not want to work for as your organization is only good on the hardwood as it is at the top. You are not going to win anything when its as "Toxic" as it was around the Bulls Organization. Thibs is owed $9 million over the next two seasons and the Bulls have to be thinking he will get a new "Gig" and the buyout won't be over half of that.

Coach Thibs Tenure talking W's and L's:

5 Seasons
394-255 W-L

Playoffs
23-28 W-L

360 Degrees...

Thibs won 2 Central Division Titles in his first two seasons...

He also went to the East Finals in year one...

That 23-28 "Fight for Larry" W-L spelled gloom and doom...

Note: The funniest quote was after the Bulls lost vs the Cavs Thibs says, "I expect to be back as Bulls Coach next season...who says that with all that B.S. going on in and around the Bulls"...the NBA Guillotine!

ROCKETS 90 WARRIORS 104 F..."DUBS" is headed to the 2K15 "Fight for LARRY" dba the NBA Finals...CURRY and BARNES Sensational as HARDEN goes "SUPERBAD" with no Jonah Hill! #HOUvsGSW #RocketGang #DUBNation #WCFChamps #WarriorsGround #StrengthInNumbers #GSWWinsSeries4-1

It was more of a formality as the Golden State Warriors finally put away the Houston Rockets. In the Logo there are really no surprises as far as who advances as 95% of the time its the best team that wins. It was no different in this series as the Warriors showed everyone why they won 67 games through the 82-game trek and you can put that Jump-Shooting Team stuff to rest! 

Stephen Curry led a "Dubs" Attack that has one SF Harrison Barnes peaking at the right time. Barnes had 24 points and seven boards as Curry had a game-high 26 points to go with eight boards and six helpers. Klay added 20 points as he left with a nasty knee to the head from Trevor Ariza.


Houston just could not match up with "Dubs" as James Harden needed to be "Big" from here on out and 14 points with thirteen turnovers was not the answer. Dwight Howard added 18 points and sixteen boards as they both led all five starters in double figures. Rockets need to regroup and schematically speaking needs to put more of a plan together instead of giving it to Harden with the Spalding orange sticking and we go from there!

"Dubs" now gets the Cleveland Cavaliers in the NBA Finals coming to you on Thursday June 4th, 2015...Imagine that Cleveland vs Golden State as its Buck Rogers and the 25th Century of the Logo!

Congrats to the Golden State Warriors and lead man Steve Kerr...and of course Dub Nation dba "Strength in Numbers"!

     

Redbirds MATT ADAMS out 3-4 Months with Quad Issue!..."WORD around the WARNING Track" as more REDBIRDS hit the Training Room and later Rehab! #MattAdamsBusiness #RedbirdNation #BaseballTownUSAHappenings

The news on the St. Louis Cardinals Injury front keeps getting worse as we move along in the 162-game trek. Cards First Baseman Matt "Hot Plate" Adams through numerous media outlets will be out at least 3-4 months as a right quad strain reportedly looks bad enough to keep him out through the summer months.

Adams hurt the quad running the base paths last night as the Redbirds are looking to grab another NL Central Title and hit the phone booth an become "Red October" come "Fight for October"! For now Adams replacement looks to be MLB Vet Mark Reynolds as St. Louis who won again tonight moves to 31-16 the best W-L in the show!


First RHP Adam "Waino" Wainright goes down now a power-hitter in the middle of that potent Redbirds line up. "Waino" gone for 2015 hasn't effected them thus far now we play the waiting game to see if Adams out will hurt them offensively moving forward!

DUCKS 2 BLACKHAWKS 5 F...#65 and #2 from Team INDIAN Head putting in Work as the HAWKS force a Game 7 on the "POND at Anaheim"!..."FROZEN TALK" 1901 West Madison as CRAW-DAD and ANDERSEN will be in the Blue-Paint for Saturday's Game 7! #ANAvsDAL #TeamWEBBEDFeet #FearTheINDIANHead #StanleyCupPlayoffs #WCFFinalsTied3-3

The Chicago Blackhawks survive a flurry of attempts to get this game tied in the 3rd as the Ducks tried everything and that tying goal eluded them as the Indian Head wins 5-2 in dramatic fashion. Now we get a game 7 back in Anaheim on Saturday May 30th for all the marbles!

The Hawks 2nd frame clinic they put on was a thing of beauty as they "Lit the Lamp" three straight times as it was Brandon Saad, Patrick Kane, and Marian Hossa with D.K. dba Duncan Keith assisting on all three  goals.


The Ducks though down three but by no means out scores the last goal of the 2nd frame on a Patrick Maroon re-direct as the score was 3-1 Hawks. That score by Maroon had Hawks Nation very unsettled as no three goal lead in this series has been safe.

Anaheim with Uncle Mo are on their side to start the 3rd gets a Clayton Stoner score just under the two-minute mark in the 3rd making it 3-2 Hawks. After that goal the 3rd was a "Blur" as time went as almost as fast as both the Ducks and Hawks were skating.

Then right under the four minute mark it was a heckuva pass to Andrew Shaw and he backhands a shot glove side upper tank for a score and a Hawks 4-2 lead. Shaw then gets an empty-netter making it a 5-2 final and we are off to a game 7.

"Craw-Dad" was solid in net stopping 30 of 32 SOG. The Ducks Frederik Andersen halted 18 of 22 SOG as he has been a little shaky in net the last two games. The Indian Head in 2014015 is 31-0 when leading after two frames. Also the team that has scored first in this series has won every game...just sayin'!

W.C.S. to the Kings helping the Logo's only Boogie Man on that Forever Purple Front Line...makes sense!

Dekker along side PG-13 would be a nice mix for Bird, Pritchard, and Walsh and company....

"Frank the Tank" to the Highlight Factory would allow Big AL and Sap to play more perimeter a beautiful pick...

Wizards get a defensive stalwart in R.H.J. of 'Zona...

Harrell is Insurance for L-Train departing...

Just think the Wood rim-protecting for "Dubs" as G.S.W. gets bigger in and around the restricted-area...

Here we go as the Houston Rockets will be playing in an elimination game from here on out. What Rockets Team will arrive for Game 5 the one that gets after it on both ends or the one that played in Game 3 looking for some one to feel sorry for theme...c'mon Clutch City?

The Golden State Warriors must not be thinking we are up 3-1 and we have a few games to close this out or they will find themselves in the Croc Pot simmering as we get a game 7. "Dubs" needs just as much urgency if not more than the Rockets to close Houston out!

PLAYBOOK
Does Harden have three more in him nearing 40 points?

Will "Los Splash Hermanos" take over Game 5?

Can Dwight be somewhat of a dominant force in and around the Paint or is that Dwight back in Mouse Town that played for the O-Magic?  

Defense and that for both of these teams is easier said than done and if it turn into a game that should be played on Asphalt the Rockets will go home...that simple!

Transition Offense who goes all out in overdrive in game 5 as the Rockets might need to but be careful as your on Warriors Ground in Planet Oracle near the Black Hole...pick your spots!

the Money Ball Racks the Rockets do need to match "Los Splash Hermanos" or "Dubs"
but limit their opportunities and force them to put the Spalding orange on the deck...

Turnover Battle...who wins?

the Dellavedova 50/50 Scrums...who wins them going Rugby Rules?

Warriors Dancers...say nothing more!

Planet Oracle all decked out in "Strength in Numbers" can the Rockets talking simply "Pursuit" take them completely out of the game?

"Points in the Paint"...who wins?

Hack-A-J Smoove or Hack-A-Dwight will it be in play in Game 5?

Rockets Bench vs "Dubs Bench" who wins?

Game 5 is here and locked and loaded...NBA on ESPN

Watch that Hawks Defense playing 4 Defensemen heavy T.O.I. in D.K. Oduya, "Brooksie", and Hammer...Back-Checking is a must from the Hawks Forwards and Centers from here on out...

Ducks need to be more focused on attacking the Hawks instead of hitting the Hawks even though that their game...

Captain Serious #19, the Bison City Mullet #88, and Boss Hoss #81 will be on the same line a lot tonight...

Coach Bud vs Coach Q has lived up to its billing...

Neutral Zone is always the Trouble Zone lookout...

Penalty Kill vs the Power Play going Ready Alert 5 in game 6 and game 7 if necessary...

Game 6 is here for all to see and it just does not get any better than the NHL Playoffs #BecauseItsTheCup...

Bluedude Sportstalk SPORTS SHORTS Take 214...Twin Cities AVENEGER #28 "All Day A.P." playing for SKOL or no one...shots fired!..."BULLS on PARADE" tabbed for HBO's Award-Winning "HARD KNOCKS" and you know what they say about the "Loudest ONE in the Room"! #VikesNation #AllDayAP #Texans #HBOHardKnocks #NFL

If current Vikings RB Adrian Peterson and his people (Agent among others) wanted to pull a fast one on the Minnesota Vikings for the 2015 season it looks like it won't happen. Through numerous media outlets the Skol's lead man Mike Zimmer eluded to the fact that the Twin Cities Avenger #28 All Day A.P. will play for us being the Vikes or no one in the upcoming 2015 season...shots fired!


Now A.P. has already lost a $250K O.T.A. Bonus as expected as he is not present in camp as we go to press. The Ball now is in Peterson's Court as he either puts all his Cons aside and goes Pro joining the Vikes as Mandatory Camp is on the way soon and the penalties get steeper and steeper. A.P. and your People...your turn!

The Award-Winning HBO Feature "Hard Knocks" has tabbed the 2015 Houston Texans as the team they will cover in Training Camp. The Texans should be better than in 2014 and in camera near "Area 99" dba "Bulls on Parade" DE JJ Watt is a plus and should be quite entertaining. As for being the "Loudest one in the room" Texans you better come out talking names as everyone as in all NFL Heads will have their "Peepers" on you!

HAWKS 88 CAVALIERS 118 F...C'mon NBA Heads when you have LeBRON JAMES and that Nike Basketball LeBRON 12 your always in the running for a Conference Title, a Chip, and a Parade Route as the PEACH really DROPPED in the 404! #ATLvsCLE #ATLHawksNation #Believeland #ECFChamps #TeamKingJames #CLESweeps4-0

Was there ever any doubt as players like "Shump", J.R., Mozgov, and Kyrie are really in uncharted waters now and who led them to near the Promised Land..."Just A Kid from Akron" LeBron James. I know what your thinking and Chevrolet use to always says in his Michael Jordan's Chevy Commercials as Michael Jordan drove a Chevy Corvette or Blazer, " I am glad he is on our side"!

The NBA Gods now have dropped another #23 near the Great Lakes and that man is named LeBron James as he leads the Cleveland Cavaliers to four-piece sweep as C-Town Hoops tries to bring a heavy-coveted Parade Route to down town Cleveland in June.

The Hawks just had no shot as it was a bad match up for them from the start. The only team in the East that matched up with Cleveland was the Chicago Bulls period and I said that at the beginning of the 2014-15 season.

Six Cavs in double figures with King James cruising to an effortless 23 points and nine boards as he waited on seven tables. "Get Shots" J.R. Smith added 18 points and ten boards with Tristan Thompson chipping in with 16 points and eleven boards as his play will usher the "Lake Oswego Monster" to another squad this summer if Cleveland was smart staying away from what Kevin Love might think he is worth!



As for Atlanta great run and Hawks Basketball is back inn the A.T.L.. As for their biggest piece to sign this off-season it is clearly Milsap and Carroll and under he Spurs Way they will do the right things moving forward.

Congrats to Cavs Nation and the 2014-15 Cleveland Cavaliers you are the 2014-15 Eastern Conference Champions.

Note: As for that other #23 coming behind Jordan and King James he resides near Mother's World Famous Honey Baked Ham and Who Dat Nation as that would be the "Brow" Nike Basketball's Anthony Davis of State Bird of Louisiana Hoops as its no contest!

NATIONALS 2 CUBS 3 F...A Walk-Off Double by the CUBBIES #2 Donut-Runner RUSSELL wins the game as CUBBIES #1 Donut-Runner BRYANT ties the Game!..."A CUP of JOE in the SHOW Report" the NORTH SIDERS are still in the REDBIRDS Neighborhood! #WSHvsCHC #NATitude #NorthSiders #NL2K15Business

The Chicago Cubs gets a solid outing again from starter Kyle Hendricks as he gets the no-decision. The Washington Nationals starter Jordan Zimmerman matched Hendricks as they both give up just a run as it came down to the Cubs young and rising stars and "Bam 34" of Natitude Hardball!

With Hendricks cruising and the Cubbies up 1-0 in the top of the 7th that man for the Nats strikes again. Nats OF Bryce "Bam 34" Harper takes Hendricks to left on what looked to be a routine fly to left. Well 17 mph wings gusting to left field and just like that "Bam 34" had his 17th bomb of the year.

Then in the 8th Nats CF Denard Span takes Cubbies middle man Pedro Strop deep to right center for a 2-1 Nats lead. That lead lasted not even a through the 8th as Cubbies #1 Donut-Runner
Kris Bryant takes Nats RHP Aaron Barrett deep over the scoreboard in left for Bryant's 7th on the season and the game as tied 2-2 heading into the 9th.

The North Siders and shaky Captain Save-A-Game Hector Rondon with two outs get Nats CF Yunel Escobar caught stealing 3rd for the Nats last out in the 9th. That set-up the Cubbies Addison Russell (#2 Cubbies Donut-Runner) for a walk-off double scoring Jonathan Herrera. That winner was all set up by the Nats throwing error trying to turn to on the previous hitter.

Cubbies move to 25-20 as the Nats fall to 27-20...      


HAWKS @ CAVALIERS in Game #4 in the "Fight for LARRY" w/PLAYBOOK...The goal for the HIGHLIGHT Factory is to not get swept!...The goal for "BELIEVELAND" is to end this series now to get a few days of extra rest! #ATLvsCLE #ATLHawksNation #Believeland #ECF #CLELeads3-0

The Atlanta Hawks as we go to press must leave everything out on the hardwood to avoid the four- piece sweep. The Cleveland Cavaliers are trying to end this series and grab a few days of extra race before taking on the Golden State Warriors and yes I have the Warriors already in the 2K15 "Fight for Larry"!

Hawks vs Hawks...what do they have left?
King James vs the Hawks



PLAYBOOK

Teague, Milsap, Horford, and Carroll must all come up bigger than life in game 4 for the Hawks to have any shot...

King James smells the "Chum" on the Hardwood and like a Great White Shark smelling "Chum" in the water...it could be a Cavs Feeding Frenzy!

Transition Defense vs "Splash Plays"...Hawks need to limit those Cavs dagger-like Money Balls and King James going Nerf-Rim....

Shelvin Mack answered the bell in game 3 what does he have for game 4 and is "Dennis the Menace" Schroder done getting time in this series as he has been vastly ineffective?

Thompson and Mozgov will eat glass...how much?

"Attack Mode" as who gets to the stripe more?

Ex-Knicks J.R. and "Shump" have been huge and will that continue in game 4?

Hawks have nothing to lose and will come out swinging...

Cavs cannot be thinking about the Finals Trip...

Will Kyrie be a game 4 go?

Game 4 is here...who is watching?  

BLACKHAWKS 4 DUCKS 5 F/OT...HAWKS give the DUCKS what the DUCKS gave the HAWKS in Game 4 and just like that in the Neutral Zone "SPLASH" Red Sirens!..."FROZEN TALK" 1901 West Madison as the INDIAN Head is now in Elimination Games from here on out! #CHIvsANA #FearTheIndianHead #MightyDucks #WCF #StanleyCupPlayoffs #DUCKSLeads3-2

The Chicago Blackhawks nearly pulled it off as it looked to be a dine deal early in the 1st with the Hawks down 3-0 after one. Then Captain Serious strikes late x 2 and the Hawks rose up and forced extras.

In Extras just like that a nonchalant puck cleared or should have been cleared in the zone turns into a game 5 winner and the Ducks quack quack quack to a 3-2 lead. Hawks net minder Corey Crawford looked a mess early and Ducks net minder Frederik Andersen looked a mess late and the Ducks prevailed 5-4.

It came down to players making plays and the Ducks made the last play. "Craw-Dad" stopped 23-28 and Andersen halted 24 of 28 as the Indian Head chipped and chipped away at that early 3-0 Ducks lead. Cam Fowler, Ryan Kesler, and Sami Vatanen had the Ducks flying high early 3-0.

The Hawks came back in the 2nd on a methodical approach behind a Teuvo Teravainen and Brent Seabrook goals. It was 3-2 and the back breaker came off a Patrick Maroon score late in the 3rd a rebound making it 4-2 Ducks. Then it happened...



Captain Serious out of nowhere scores the 3rd Hawks goal with Corey Crawford pulled and then scores goal #4 tying the game in dramatic fashion. The Ducks were in trouble heading into the extra period with the Indian Head with all the momentum!

Then just 45 seconds into then extra frame as Hawks Bryan Bickell tried clearing the puck in the neutral zone only to see the Ducks turn that into a 2-1 break away as Kesler shot of "Craw-Dad" went right to Matt Beleskey's stick for a tip-in...game time Ducks win that quick!

In a series and game like this "Carelessness" will cost you and not blaming "Bicks" but you have to be aware of what is going on at all times! Game 6 back at the Madhouse on "Hump Day" as the Indian Head tries to force a game 7 back on the pond!
   







WARRIORS 115 ROCKETS 128 F..."FEAR the BEARD" says No SWEEP not on my watch as Nike Basketball's "BEARD Project" almost drops FIFTY!..."Fight for LARRY" as RED Nation becomes "CLUTCH City" on this night avoiding elimination! #GSWvsHOU #DubsNation #RedNation #WCF #GSWLeads3-1

No laughing matter here as overshadowing game four was that nasty spill by Stephen Curry that did not look good as he did walk of on his own power and that was to me the "Highlight of the Night" in game four.

As for game four ten Rockets needed James Harden to empty out the tank and empty out the tank and he did. Nike Basketball's "Beard Project" dba "Fear the Beard" #13 emptied out all what he had for a game-high 45 points on a slick 13 for 22 from the field and 7 for 11 from deep. More importantly the Rockets followed his lead and responded to at least avoiding the sweep.

The Warriors lost Curry to that nasty spill in the 2nd frame but rallied cutting that Rockets 20-point deficit to a manageable 69-59 deficit at the break. It was Harden though that was the difference in this one as Curry came back as he and Klay Thompson combined for 47 points going 12 for 26 from deep. Draymond Green went "Monsters 94 x 50" with 21 points and fifteen boards but was disqualified late in the 4th.




The Rockets went onto win 128-115 as Josh Smith added 20 points and Trevor Ariza 17. The key stat of the night was the Rockets shooting 25 of 43 from the stripe and "Dubs" shooting 7 for 13 from the stripe.

Game 5 at Planet Oracle on "Hump Day" May 27 as "Dubs" better not play with the Rockets or they will find themselves in a street fight...

WARRIORS @ ROCKETS in the "Fight for LARRY" going Game #4..."DUBS" riding "HIGH" and who can blame them as CLUTCH City needs to be that and then some avoiding a "Sweep" messing up that Memorial Day 2k15 Spread! #GSWvsHOU #WarriorsGround #RedNation #WCF #GSWLeads3-0

The Golden State Warriors just one game away from the NBA Finals 2K15 dba the "Fight for Larry" at Bluedude Sportstalk. Steph Curry has been the NBA M.V.P. throughout Winning Time" and he cannot be stopped.

The Houston Rockets down 3-1 last series to the L.A. Clippers somehow staved off elimination and won that series as if the Rockets had nine lives coming into this series all nine were used up the series prior. Now for Red Nation it comes down to pride and how bad do you want it as the NBA History Books are lurking if they get swept!

Rockets vs the History Books and is there anything else?

1975 WARRIORS World Champs




PLAYBOOKS

Rockets running out of Options might need to move grab "Area 99" JJ Watt of "Bulls On Parade" to at least scare Under Armour Basketball's "Human Torch"...

Warriors cannot let "Emotions" play a part in game 4 as they need to stay the course as it will be tough...    

Does James Harden have one more Nike Basketball's "Beard Project" in him and go Double-Nickel to "Free" Clutch City from a possible sweep?

"Dubs" Draymond Green has been doing what he wants can the Rockets slow him down in game #5?

Turnovers vs "Live" Turnovers...who wins?

Kerr vs McHale has been all Kerr up to this point or two rounds to one as McHale and Houston played well enough in game 2 to win...    


110% Max Effort can we get that from a Rockets Team that simply did not come to play looking at each other for answers instead of going to get it and playing for each other...

"Splash Money Balls" forget "Splash Plays" when G.S.W. is playing as Curry and Thompson might go All-Star Saturday Night Three-Point Contest and if they do that "Dubs" Charter back to East Bay will look like Soul Plane with all the Fixins'!

Rocket City Dancers maybe the only thing smiling after game 4 in Red..Ladies keep it looking good though as your always "Clutch" in every sense of the word...Yumooooooo!

"Glass Work" who wins talking "Rebound the Vegetable"?


NATIONALS 2 CUBS 1 F...Washington Starter ROARK had enough "NAT-itude" as they go LONG BALL x 2 to beat the NORTH Siders..."A CUP of JOE in the SHOW Report" CUBBIES KRIS BRYANT is "En Fuego" for the Home Team going Solo Blast! #WSHvsCHC #NATitude #NorthSiders #Wrigleyville

The Washington Nationals coming off a 4-1 win over the Phightin' Phils and the Chicago Cubs coming off losing two of three to the Arizona D-Backs. It was Nats starter Tanner Roark out dueling Cubbies starter Tsuyoshi Wada as they both pitched well enough to win with Roark getting a run in the 6th to give him the "W" as the Wada gets a no-decision.

It was a Denard Span lead-off blast that set the table for the Nats making it 1-0 only to see Cubs #1 Donut-Runner (Rookie) Kris Bryant taking Roark deep bottom half of the 1st for a 1-1 tie at the end of one.


That score would hold up through five full frames as Nats back stop Wilson Ramos takes Cubs middle-man Justin Grimm for another Washington Solo Blast making it 2-1 Nats. Both Pens would hold from there as Nats Captain Save-A-Game Drew Storen gets save #15 of #16.

Washington with the win moves to 27-18 as they extend that NL East lead after that poor April showing living up to expectations. The Cubbies fall to 24-20 still 2nd in the Central but they need to get back in the "W" Column chasing Redbirds 2K15 Business!  

ROYALS 1 YANKEES 14 F...The BRONX BOMBERS were that and then some as PINSTRIPES in "CAMO" takes the ROYALS in "CAMO" for a Bronx Zoo Ride!..."A CUP of JOE in the SHOW Report" going Memorial Day 2K15 "THRASHING at the BRONX Zoo"! #KCvsNYY #BeRoyalKC #BronxBombers #JuniorCircuitHardball

Before "Bombers" Faithful filled the new "Bronx Zoo" up the game for May 25th, 2015 versus the visiting Kansas City Royals was already in the bag. The Yanks hung a crooked 8 up on K.C. starter Jeremy Guthrie as "Tabs" on the Bump in the Show do not get any uglier than Guthrie's on this Holiday afternoon.

Credited with a frame Guthrie pitched into the 2nd getting no outs giving up eleven runs on nine hits and get this not one, two, or three but four bombs off of Guthrie. Yanks Chase Headley (2-run HR), Bob McCann (3-run HR), Brett Gardner (three-run HR), and Stephen Drew (three-run HR) as all the "Big Flies" had ducks on the pond"!




As for Yanks 2K15 free agent pick up Nathan Eovaldi from "Little Havana Hardball" dba Miami Marlins was cruising throwing seven frames of eight hit hardball allowing just one run with all that run support. Not only did he go seven but he spared the Yanks Pen.

The Bombers move over the .500 mark at 23-22 as the Royals fall to 28-16 and that was after beating the Redbirds on Friday and Saturday and losing yesterday and flying into the Big Apple on Sunday Night.

Enjoy this one Bronx Zoo Nation as its just 1 of 162...

BLACKHAWKS @ DUCKS in "FROZEN TALK" 1901 West Madison going "Fight for LORD Stanley"...The INDIAN HEAD must win another game at the "POND" to get a shot at SHAMP-PAG-NA, a PARADE Route, and RING #3 since 2010!...Team WEBBED Feet playing the "ENFORCER" must be careful thinking we need to take this down "ICE ALLEY" and make it a good old fashion Donnybrook! #CHIvsANA #FearTheINDIANHead #TeamWEBBEDFeet #StanleyCupPlayoffs #FrozenTalkHawks #SeriesTied1-1

The Chicago Blackhawks played game four in spurt as they won frame one and three but lost frame two. The thought process was to give the Mighty Ducks some of the stuff they have been shoveling from a physical standpoint. The Hawks did but at what price as the Indian Head needs to be careful as that is not their game. The Hawks game is simply skill and speed as that outweighs all that hitting.

The Anaheim Ducks on the other hand might have Chicago right where they ant them as the two games they have lost have been in extras. They have also went after the Hawks Defensemen running on 4 and some change with Michal Rozsival done for the 2K15 Stanley Cup Playoffs with that Fractured Wheel! Can the Ducks just hold serve at the "Pond" and if they do that it game...set...match!

Game #5 Outlook:

The Hawks need to still hit but play their game and not get caught up in what the Ducks do...

The Ducks need to keep emphasizing being physical and hit anything in "Madhouse" 312 Red and Black...

Will Hawks Coach "Q" play Captain Serious not on the same match up as the Ducks Ryan Kesler as they both scored goals when they were not matched up against each other in game #4...

Ducks Ice Girls...amen!

Who stands tall in the and around the blue-paint "Craw-Dad"of Montreal, Quebec or Frederik of Denmark?

Neutral Zone play is crucial and either teams can ill afford to turn the "Frozen One" over with all that skill on the Pond...

Will the "Bison City Blur" Patrick Kane #88 of the Indian Head get loose and give Hawks Nation what they want..."Showtime"!

Will Ryan Getzlaf be more aggressive attacking instead of trying to be a facilitator...at 6'6" and north of 240 once he gets going it is "Skating with the Bulls at Pamplona, Spain"

LW Brandon Saad of Pittsburgh, P.A. is the Hawks X-Factor...

RW Jakob Silfverberg of Sweden is the Ducks X-Factor...

Penalty Kill vs Power Play...who wins?

Puck Possession is vital especially with the Indian Head down a Defenseman...

Coach "Q" vs Coach Boudreau has been enticing and a Five-Star Entree with Sides going a la carte...

HAWKS 111 CAVALIERS 114 F/OT...The HIGHLIGHT Factory dug deep and deep enough to win Game 3 without Big AL and "K2" as it just wasn't meant to be!..."Fight for LARRY" talking King JAMES & King JAMES & King JAMES & King JAMES & King JAMES the CAVS new Starting Five..."Witness"! #ATLvsCLE #HighlightFactory404 #Belieleveland #ECF #CLELeads3-0 @KingJames

If you were to write a script on game 3 at the "Q" and the script involved a Jeff Teague great look for the game-winner the ending would have been hands down 90% of the time the Hawks shock "Believeland" and the series is 2-1 Cavs!

Instead you get the Hawks running on "No Guts...No Glory" versus a King James who through 48 and the extra frame was spent like I have never seen him. The end result the Cavs go up 3-0 but not after Hawks Nation pulled an Atlanta Falcons Motto and "Rise Up" Hawks and do what we do.

The extra frame saw Teague hit a huge money ball and King James to follow running on fumes on that on that swank King James 12 from Nike Basketball. It came down to again Shelvin Mack Jeff Teague's #2 Caddy missing another great look from the corner for the tie top send it into the second set of extras...Cavs win and King James messed around and goes Triple-Double "Biggie Size" and slide over Golden Arches!    


James goes 37 points and eighteen boards with thirteen helpers on a bad shooting night of 14 for 37 with six turnovers and 1 for 6 from deep...who does that in the Logo...absolutely no one! James started out 0 for 10 to make that triple-double even more of a feat as once again with all that disdain and hate for "Just a Kid from Akron" we "Witness" a rare 1 of 1 like Magic, Bird, Jordan, Picasso, and "Dream"...King James strikes with that LeBron 12 P.E. going to no retailer!


Teague didn't disappoint as he represents that basketball proud state of Indiana and city of Nap Town. Some 30 points and seven helpers with six assists later he had nothing to hold his head down about. Milsap added 22 points and nine boards and who knows if things would have been different with Big Al Horford as "Bud Ball" went to some different rotations that worked especially using Mack over "Dennis the Menace" Schroder who has looked like he is in space at times in this series!

Game 4 is Tuesday May 26 at the "Q" and that 60-22 Hawks Team will come to play...believe that!

CARDINALS 6 ROYALS 1 F...WACHA stops the REDBIRDS bleeding as the BASEBALL Town U.S.A. hops back on I-70 avoiding the Sweep!..."GET AWAY DAY" Memorial Day Weekend 2K15 as it was RED vs BLUE in a Three-Piece in MIZZOU! #STLvsKC #RedbirdsBaseball #BeRoyalKC #theI-70GetDown2K15

Yes and ht St. Louis Cardinals who lost game 2 of the three-piece with the in-state Kansas City Royals because of mother nature had to get game 3 trying to avoid the sweep. Enter Ace or soon to be Ace Michael Wacha as he dominates that Royals line up for a Redbirds Win and a 2-1 series loss!

Wacha went seven strong allowing just five hits and a run as he struck out four handing out just two free hopper passes moving to 7-0 in 2015. That Redbirds Offense jumped on Royals starter early and in the 1st on a Johnny Peralta single and a Matt Adams two-bagger making it 2-0 Cards.

K.C. starter Yordano Ventura just didn't have his good "Stuff" today. He took the loss going seven and giving up four runs on five hits. Matt Carpenter took Ventura deep for a two-run blast in the 6th putting the Cards up 4-1. They added two more in the 8th as St. Louis moves 28-16 and the Royals fall to 28-15.

Remember both of these teams came real close to meeting head to head in the 2014 Fall Classic as those San Fran Giants playing "Bochy Ball" went through both the Cards and Gigantes for another Parade Route!
 

METS 1 PIRATES 9 F...BUCCOS finish the Three-Game Sweep of the AMAZINS' playing like anything but!..."GET AWAY DAY" Memorial Day 2K15 Edition as "CUTCH 22" and MARTE go Souvenir Shop at PNC as ZOLTAN strikes! #NYMvsPIT #Amazins #SeniorCircuit2k15Biz

Garrit Cole got the Pittsburgh Pirates on good footing on Friday and that momentum carried all they way through for the Buccos for a three-game sweep. The Pirates jumped all over Mets starter Jon Niese as he lasted just to the 5th.

It was the Buccos firing crooked numbers on the scoreboard in the 5th, 6th, and 7th frames. It was Buccos Star Outfielders Andre McCutchen (two-run HR in 5th) and Starlin Marte (three-run HR in the 6th) that put Gotham City's Senior Circuit Bunch away.



Francisco Liriano trying to find himself in the 2015 season that was himself today. He gives up a run on six hits going six frames as he struck out a dozen. The Pirates needed that jolt to get back into that two-headed race in the Central between the Cubs and Cardinals.

The Mets falling and falling fast falls to 24-21 and this is not what May 2015 was forecasted to be after that magnificent start in April for the Amazins'! The "Dark Knight" goes only every 5th day and David Wright appears to be hit by the Injury Plague not bug.    

ANGELS 1 RED SOX 6 F...MILEY was A+ on the "HILL" and the X-Man and NAPOLI carries the CARMINES at the Dish!..."GET AWAY DAY" Memorial Day Weekend Edition 2K15 from FENWAY Park! #LAAvsBOS #HalosNation #RedSoxNation #JuniorCircuitBusiness

The Carmines take the "Rubber Game" as Red Sox starter Wade Miley moves to 4-4. Miley was on his A-Game as he goes eight strong scattering four hits and giving up a run. That run Miley gave up was of course off the Ash, Maple or Bamboo of one Mike Trout a double scoring Erick Aybar from first.

The Carmines did their damage at the dish behind Xander the "X-Man" Bogaerts and Mike Napoli. "Nap" took Halos starter Hector Santiago deep in the 2nd for a two-run blast scoring the X-Man making it 2-0 Sox. Boston would add one more in the 5th on a Dustin Pedroia sac-fly.

They would tack on three more runs in the 8th highlighted by a "Nap" two-run double as the Carmines win going away 6-1. The "X-Man" (5th in the line up) and Napoli (6th in the line up)  would combine to go 6 for 7 with 4 RBI and four runs scored.

The Carmines move to 21-23 good for 3rd in the AL East just 2.5 games back of the leading Rays. The Halos fall to .500 at 22-22 as they are six games back of the "Stros Show"!

DUCKS 4 BLACKHAWKS 5 F/2OT...The INDIAN Head escapes what would have been deemed as a "Nightmare on MADISON Street"!..."FROZEN TALK" 1901 West Madison as ANTOINE VERMETTE #80 in your Hawks Program gets the Game-Winner! #ANAvsCHI #TeamWEBBEDFeet #OneGoal #BlackhawkNation #WCF #StanleyCupPlayoffs #SeriesTied2-2

The Chicago Blackhawks hopefully after we hit Grant Park in mid to late June 2015 (Lol) will look back on this game 4 and tell themselves we dodged what would have been an impossible hole to comeback from.

The Hawks scored the only goal in frame one on a short-handed goal by Pittsburgh, P.A. Native Brandon Saad making it 1-0 Hawks. Chicago's blue-paint tenant Corey "Craw-Dad" Crawford looked as though he was going to get to a possible shutout as he was playing his best game yet.

Then late in the 2nd it was the Ducks Emerson Etem on a tip-in tying the game at 1-1 as Hawks Nation would leave their seats for the 2nd intermission bewildered. That set the table for what no one saw coming as the Blackhawks nearly blew the 3rd and the Ducks hit the Stanley Cup Playoffs Record books.

It was Captain Serious "Lighting the Lamp" just under three minutes in the 3rd making it 2-1 Blackhawks only for Brent Seabrook to score some five minutes later making it 3-1 Blackhawks and yes the feeling of going back to Anaheim 2-2 was settling in then this happened:



The Ducks score three goals in 37 seconds with a Blackhawks Time Out in between the 2nd and 3rd goals as Ryan Kesler, Matt Beleskey, and Corey Perry all score, The Ducks took the lead on that Perry score. Then the luck of the Hawks it was Patrick Kane on a power play goal that tied the game up at 4-4 as we would go to extras. Ducks net minder Frederik Andersen had stopped 26 of 30 SOG going into extras as "Craw-Dad" had stopped 29 of 33 SOG.

There was no scoring in the 1st extra frame then in the 2nd with fourteen minutes past it was Patrick Sharp hitting Antoine Vermette as he slapped the first shot of Andersen only to go to the aide of the net to get the 2nd shot off and then.....the Hoooooooooooooooooorn please as Hawks win...Hawks win...Hawks win!



That was Vermette's 2nd of the post season and this came after he was a healthy scratch in game 3. Now we get Game #5 back in Anaheim on Monday May 25th, 2015 the Memorial Day Holiday!    

WARRIORS 115 ROCKETS 80 F...."STRENGTH in NUMBERS" > "PURSUIT" as "DUBS" needed an Inland of Ocean Water, the GOLDEN Gate Bridge, and the B.A.R.T. and this Game #3 was played at Planet ORACLE on WARRIORS Ground!..."Fight for LARRY" W.C.F. is @UABasketball "HUMAN TORCH" Stephen Curry is absolutely not an EARTHLING? #GSWvsHOU #DubsAllDay #RedNation #WCF #GSWLeads3-0

I am going to start by saying that was some of the best playoff basketball I have seen not watching the San Antonio Spurs in the last few years. "Dubs" goes 26 assists and 13 turnovers and plays a flawless first half. At one point in the game in the 3rd frame they had 20 assists to just three turnovers.

Then it was Under Armour's "Human Torch" dba S.C. 30 with just three points after one put the Rockets on his "Canvas" and slide over Picasso because it was a work of art and one of one as only the great ones illustrate.

Steph goes for 37 points between the 2nd and 4th frames and end the night with a 40-piece with sides like 12-19 FG, 7-9 from Houston surrounding suburbs, and 9 for 10 from the charity stripe. He did that damage in just under 35 minutes. Curry led four G.S.W. starters in scoring as Klay Thompson and Draymond Green each tallied 17 points as Green also grabbed thirteen boards.



It wasn't all on James Harden as he had as he picked the wrong night to be off as the Rockets need #13 to be great all the time. He shot 3 for 16 with 17 points but that wasn't near the whole story. "Dubs" out rebounds Red Nation 60-39 and Clutch City and anything but shot 5 for 25 from deep. The only thing that was "Clutch" tonight was the Rockets mascot fittingly enough named "Clutch"!

Now we get a game 4 with "All Eyes on the Rockets" as if your going to lose a series in the worst way do it on the oppositions hardwood and do not get swept. Ga,e 4 is Memorial Day May 25, 2015 at the Toyota Center...
   

WARRIORS vs ROCKETS going Game #3 in the "Fight for LARRY" W.C.F 2K15 w/PLAYBOOK!..."DUBS" adjusting and playing along as they will get a fired up ROCKETS Bunch and "FEAR the BEARD" #13!...Can #RedNation hit the Phone Booth for games 3 and 4 and become "CLUTCH CITY" minus "DREAM", CLYDE, SAM I AM, the JET on TNT, and Big SHOT Bob? #GSWvsHOU #DubNation #RedNation #WCF #GSWLeads2-0

The Houston Rockets hopefully left that game #2 back at Oakland International and on to games 3 and 4 at the Big Toyota Tundra dba Toyota Center in Downtown H-Town. Rockets lead man James Harden had a "Brain Fart" (not cramp because if it was a cramp he would have got a shot off) and could not get a shot off on the Warriors in that 99-98 loss. Now we get game #3 for all NBA Heads to see...

PLAYBOOK 

Curry is going to do what he does Rockets you must "Treat" the other folks bad...

Harden is going to do Harden Things "Dubs" stop the others in white and red...

Will "Dwight of Three Stripes" be a factor?

the Arc 23' 9" who does game 3 winning damage from there as this location needs no Google Earth?

Rocket Power Dancers would but the Cowboys Cheerleaders up in Dry Storage...watch those Ladies they go Hammer Time 24-7-365 with precision!

J-Smoove and "Brew Crew" can they get it crackin' in game 3 in transition?

The Warriors need a body off that bench to be big...is it "Iggy of Planet Oracle", S-Dot, or the Brazilian Blur running on 1/4 tank as the other 3/4 is with the mid 2k's Suns?

"Points in the Paint"....who dominates the paint!  

The best food serves at the Toyota Center needs to be given to that "Dubs" Locker Room as you always treat your guests above and beyond before telling them goodnight in the worst way!

the Turnover Battle...who wins?

Shirts and Skins watch yourself Rockets you start playing that with a side of "Organized Chaos" and "Nellie Ball" your playing right into Warriors Ground...be organized and methodical in your approach and gets stops!

Kerr vs McHale...its closer than you think!

Who will be the Support Actor starring in a Lead Role in Game 3 will be the difference in Game 3?

Game #3 is here and so is Ducks vs Hawks and MLB Action Galore...don't touch that dial!    

Hawks Sniper and All-Star KORVER out for rest of "WINNING TIME"!...Bluedude Sportstalk FRONT LINE for Saturday May 23, 2015 as the HIGHLIGHT Factory is looking for a certified and verified NBA SNIPER as "K2" is gone for the remainder of the "Fight for LARRY"! @KyleKorver Training Room Business! #ATLHawksNation #TeamPEACHDrop404

Not to say if having Kyle Korver 100% would have made a difference for the Atlanta Hawks as they looked completely overmatched in all phases dealing with King James and "Believeland" regardless what Ken Bazemore is talking about! The Hawks chances though have increasingly got worse as the news for Kyle Korver is not good.



Through numerous media outlets K2" will miss the remained of the "Fight for Larry" as he took a nasty fall and was rolled up under by Cavs Matthew Dellavedova (Video above) in what looked to be some sort of ankle, leg, or even foot injury. A high-ankle sprain is what they are calling it and that is worse than a break or fracture. Now what do the Hawks do?

#ATLHawksNation Projected Starting Line Ups 
Game #3 at the "Q"

Line Up #1

PG Jeff Teague
SG Demmare Carroll
SF Paul Milsap
PF Big Al Horford
C Pero Antic

Line Up #2

PG Jeff Tegue
SG Ken Bazemore
SF Demarre Carroll
PF Paul Milsap
C Al Horford

Note: Highlighted in red is the new positions if they move that line up around without Korver as I like #1!

Bazemore should be the nod as he would then guard "Shump" and even that math up out. Dennis Schroder could be another option but that is playing really small from the jump! Hawks in deep deep deep trouble...and they are not the best team like Bazemore said they are and let's not be foolish!      

MYLES TURNER 2K15 NBA Draft Business..."SQUEEZE the ORANGE" talking another "BIG' from the DALLAS Area with BOSH and L-Train like game! @Original_Turner #HookemHoops #NBADraftSleeper

I know it's a consensus 1 and 2 at the top of the 2015 NBA Draft but there is one "Big" who will be moving inside that Top 5 by draft time in late June 2K15. Yes he is 6"11 and 240 el bees with a 7'4" wingspan of the 2K15 NBA "Prototype" Big in Myles Turner @Original_Turner for the Tweoples on Twitter!

A top 3 in the H.S. Class of 2K14 right there with both Karl-Anthony Towns Jr. and Jahlil Okafor Turner was on no ones board until after his sophomore year at Euless, Texas Trinity High School in the DFW Metroplex.

The Bluedude first saw him play as a sophomore and right away he reminded me of former Dallas, Texas H.S. Stars and Big Mac's in  Chris Bosh (Dallas, TX Lincoln H.S/GA Tech/Heat) and LaMarcus Aldridge (Seagoville, TX H.S./U.T. Austin/Rip City). upper-long and athletic with NBA 23'9" range. He is a pick and pop guy who to me shoots it just as good as Wisconsin's "Frank the Tank" Kaminsky from deep...real talk.

I has @Original_Turner on my Top 10 Mock Draft last Wednesday but he will move up in that top 5 as @DLoading D'Angelo Russell and @EmmanuelMudiay will be in that same mix as Turner will be a Top 5 Prospect by NBA Draft Night! Taking a look at a Video and Turner's Texas Freshman Digits:

6'11" 240 lb 7'4" Wingspan

Turner only played a half at Texas as Rick Barnes never knows what he is doing and that is real. Just think if Turner starts and plays 30 plus minutes Turner would be in the same conversation as K.A.T. and "Big Jah" and now he has to play his way back somewhere near that conversation.

Kids its a lesson of picking the right school and coach as I thought Turner should have went to S.M.U. under the tutelage of Larry Brown and Assistant and former Tar Heel Champion and NBA Vet George Lynch from now defunct Flint Hill, VA Prep School in Falls Church, VA as he teamed up with Villanova's Arron Bain!

Watch the @Original_Turner as he will be gaining steam here shortly...

DUCKS @ BLACKHAWKS talking Game 4 in "FROZEN TALK" 1901 West Madison going "Fight for LORD Stanley"....Team WEBBED Feet gets Home Ice back in Game 3 now they try and take the BLACKHAWKS to a Special Place!...URGENCY, 110% Effort, and FIGHT as the INDIAN Head needs to come out like a HONEY BADGER backed up at GARRETT'S POPCORN trying to get all the CHICAGO Mix! #ANAvsCHI #TeamWEBBEDFeet #FearTheINDIANHead #StanleyCupPlayoffs #FrozenTalkHawks

The Anaheim Mighty Ducks have had nearly 40 some odd hours to soak in that game 3 win and prepare for game 4. The Chicago Blackhawks have not played a Stanley Cup Playoff game like game 3 in quite some time as the Madhouse turned into "On Anaheim Pond"!

Now we get game 4 where all the "Pressure" and "Steam" is on Coach "Q" and the Indian Head. Yes Captain Serious has had his issues with Ryan Kesler and the "Bison City Mullet" Patrick Kane scored the only goal for the Hawks in game 3. This is bigger than them and at the same time the Hawks have never been a two-trick pony.

Corey Perry has been all over the ice unmolested doing what he wants to do and the Hawks need to get after him. No not a Mike Milbury that's over the top but make "Life on Ice" at the Madhouse something he doesn't ant to remember. Let's take a sneak peek at things that need to get done for the Indian Head to hit the game 4 Winner's Circle!

What to look for for the INDIAN HEAD to win Game #4:

What line will step up in game 4 and be a "Problem" for the Mighty Ducks...

Who is going to 3rd Wheel to Captain Serious #19 and the "Bison City Blur" #88?

"Craw-Dad" Corey Crawford has been really good in the and around the blue-paint...can the Indian Head "Light the Lamp" early for him to get him comfortable?

"Neutral Zone" the Hawks need to get that dominate action in that zone to put Team Webbed Feet back on them dawgs...

Where is the freakin' Power Play...c'mon for the love of the Chicago Stadium and Players Gate 1/2, Eddie O, J.R., Steve Larmer, Chelios, and Savard and what the heck Mr. Eddie Belfour in the blue-paint...let's go Hawks!

Hawks Ice Girls keep that Ice "Smooth" and playable...Lol!

Hawks may need to have the Defensemen "Pinch" early on offense and take chances to get things going...do they have the "Grapes" to do that from the Puck Drop?

Odd Man advantages must be precise and the Hawks need to get something towards Frederik Andersen the only Danish net minder in the NHL and how about them Ducklings!

Lights, Camera, Hawks Nation...game #4 is here and it's Memorial Day Weekend 2K15 fire that Grill up as if its a Gas Grill you are no "Grill Man" as Hawks Nation needs the Kingsford Edge...let's go Hawks!

RANGERS 5 LIGHTNING 1 F..."Return Favor" as the BLUE SHIRTS have "Lightning" as well and its #61 in your #NYRPlayoffs Program in RICK NASH!..."Fight for LORD Stanley" as we head back to World's Most Famous all knotted up at 2-2! #NYRvsTB #NYRangers #BoltsNation #StanleyCupPlayoffs

The New York Rangers with a business-like approach as LW Rick Nash talking a page out of former Rangers and Edmonton Oilers Star Winger Marl Messier and that is be "Clutch" when "Clutch" is needed.

The Canadian Winger nets two scores as he gets the first and only goal of frame one making it 1-0 Blue Shirts. The Lightning's Star Steven Stamkos strikes in the 2nd tying the game up at 1-1. After that goal by Stamkos it was all Blue Shirts as they just took over the game and that involved star net minder Henrik Liundqvist.

King Henrik rose up in game 4 after giving up back to back six goal games in games 2 and 3. He saves 38 of 39 SOG a Chris Krieder scored three minutes after Stamkos making it 3-1 Rangers as they went to the 3rd 3-1 Blue Shirts.The Lightning's blue-paint tenant Ben Bishop stopped 19 of 24 SOG.


New York took advantage of both power plays in the 3rd as Martin St. Louis scored on the first power play. Then Nash gets his 2nd goal of the game on another power play as the Rangers win going away 5-1. Rangers were 2 for 4 on power plays and for the fist time in the series controlled the neutral zone and he defense in front of King Henrik was textbook Stanley Cup Playoff hockey!

Now we get the pivotal Game 5 back at World's Most Famous on Sunday May 24...  

CARDINALS 0 ROYALS 5 F...The I-70 "Get Down" Game 1 goes to #BeRoyalKC as it was CHRIS YOUNG on the "Hill" and all KENDRYS MORALES at the Dish!..."A CUP of JOE in the SHOW Report" talking 1-70 "Get Down" as ROYALS strike! #STLvsKC #BaseballTownUSA #RoyalsPride #MLBInterLeague

Veteran Chris Young baffles that Redbirds line up through six and Kendrys Morales adds to his Junior Circuit RBI Leading totals for the Kansas City Royals. Young goes six scattering six hits as he walked two and struck out two. He just kept those Redbirds Hitters off balance enough to move to an impressive 4-0 in 2015.

The show belonged to Royals DH Kendrys Morales who is long removed from the horrific Torn ACL he suffered celebrating a walk-off HR a few years back playing with the Halos vs the M's. The real final score tonight was Redbirds 0 Team Morales in Royals Blue/White 5. Morales the Cuban "Smasher" goes 3 for 5 scoring two runs and knocking in all five runs via the Big Fly x 2.




The first bomb was off Redbirds starter Lance Lynn a three-run blast making it 3-0 Royals. The second bomb was in the 3rd the second time around Morales saw Lynn making it 5-0 as Lorenzo Cain scored on both HRs.

Lynn who has seen better days falls to 3-4 as he gives up five runs on six hits in juts six frames of work. The Royals move to 27-14 starting where they left losing in the 2K14 Fall Classic to the Gigantes. The Redbirds fall to 27-15 and believe it or not here comes the Cubbies...no really look at the standings!   

CAVALIERS 94 HAWKS 82 F..."DOMINATING" as I have said before LeBRAAAAWN JAMES and four other players that know their role is better than most!..."Fight for LARRY" as the CAVS drop the PEACH and the PEACH explodes and it's only May! #CLEvsATL #Believeland #HighlightFactory404 #CLELeads2-0

Uncle Drew out with a knee injury with a 2-Liter of Pepsi max in tow, the "Lake Oswego Monster" Kevin Love done for the playoffs with an injury, Brad Daugherty retired working both Nascar and NBA for ESPN, Mark Price  shooting coach, Ron Harper retired and traveling everywhere, and Larry Nance watching Larry Nance Jr. process through the 2015 NBA Draft and did I miss anything?

Yes LeBron James as he goes what ever team he plays for goes and goes at a high-level period! All those above players missing or retired doing other things and "Just a Kid from Akron" keeps it moving and having fun doing it.


The Cavs will head back to C-Town with the prospects of two games away from their 2nd ever NBA Finals dba "Fight for Larry" at Bluedude Sportstalk due in large part to LeBron. A 30 point performance with eleven assist and nine boards as it looked liked a 10 points and five rebound game as it looks so easy to King James night in and night out.

The Hawks with the 80s Hawks Unis on trying to turn the tide might have had a a better chance if game 2 was at the Omni with @TurnerSportsEJ doing the halftime dunk contest. 24% from the arc and 41% from the field and only 13 free throw attempts...Hawks have run their course for the 2014-15 season and playoffs as "Bud Ball" has been nothing but "Awesomeness" this past season.

The real M.V.P. of the series and GM of the Year 2014-15 is Cavs David Griffin. That trade he pulled off to get both Iman Shumpert and J.R. Smith has turned to gold. The Knicks at least could have held onto "Shump" as his two-way ability is hard to find in the Logo.

Aussie Matthew Dellavedova continues to play well in Uncle Drew's absence as he added 11 points , six boards and four assists in just over 37 minutes. The series is not over but if you ask a die-hard Cleveland Sports Fan, Jim Brown, Kenny Lofton (Warriors Coach Steve Kerr's back court mate at Arizona), and/or Bernie Kosar they will tell you a Parade Route is needed in the worst way!

METS 1 PIRATES 4 F..."Raise the JOLLY Roger" as Team COLE grabs "W" #6 and the middle to the bottom of that BUCCOS Line Up does damage at the dish!..."A CUP of JOE in the SHOW Report" Memorial Day Weekend Edition as the PIRATES handle T.G.I.F. Business! #NYMvsPIT #Amazins #Buccos #SeniorCircuitBusiness2K15

The Pittsburgh Pirates when they need a "W" they just call on Ace RHP Garrit Cole as he dominates that Mets Line Up almost netting a complete job with a 4-1 win. Cole goes 8 1/3 frames allowing a run on six hits as he walks one and strikes out ten.

That Buccos line up talking hitters 5-8 accounted for all the Buccos runs and five of their seven hits. The bottom of the 2nd was highlighted by two doubles by "El Toro" Pedro Alvarez and Chris Stewart as they scored two runs in that frame.

Then in the 6th with the score 2-1 Pirates Andrew McCutchen gets a lead-off two-bagger and comes around to score on a RBI single from Jo Hung Kang. They added the 2n run off of an "El Toro" sac-fly making it 4-1 Buccos as all four runs were off Mets starter Noah Syndergaard. He went six allowing four runs (3 ER) on seven hits as he struck out five. Buccos Captain Save-A-Game Mark Melancon grabs his 10th save vs 11 chances.

As we go to press the Buccos move to 19-22 and that is 8 games back of Central leader the St. Louis Cardinals. The Amazins' free falling falls to 24-19 and 1.5 games back of the NL East leading Nats of D.C. Hardball...

The Cleveland Cavaliers will be playing game #2 at the new Omni now dba Philips Arena on "House Money" having won game 1. That in itself is a dangerous bunch coming into game #2 that the Atlanta Hawks must beat to have any chance in the series. Going to the "Q" down 0-2 would be nearly impossible to come back from going against a team led by King James. Kyrie Irving is a game-time decision and Demarre Carroll should be a go banged up with that knee ailment. Game #2 is here and T.G.I.F...

No Kyrie means absolutely nothing for the Cavs which really means two ex-Knicks are salivating at the opportunity to put up 20 FGs each...

Teague must make the Cavs pay but "21 Shump Street" has serious "D" and will get the nod to slow down Teague...

Tristan and Timofey...can the Hawks front line contain them enough to control the "Points in he Paint"?

Jr. Smith vs J.R. Smith after game 1 you know J.R. is "Feeling Himself" and he will shoot you in the game or out of one and the "Law of Averages" says he is due a cold streak...

Cavs Bench vs Hawks Bench as they get thin at PG look for King James to play even more point forward and the Hawks know that's coming...

"Glass Work"...who controls the boards!

The Arc as the Hawks need to be better than that 4 for 23 in game 1...10 makes on no more than 25 attempts is right at the Winner's Circle for Atlanta...

Transition Game as the Hawks need to get out more forcing the Tempo but be careful as King James is always looking for a "Splash Play" in your gymnasium...

"Execution" in the half court is paramount...

"Pace" as Teague did an excellent job in game 1 but he was the only Hawks it appeared ready to go all-in in game 1...

Blatt vs "Bud Ball" can't wait to see the the adjustments the Hawks made as well as the adjustments the Cavs make with no Kyrie in game 2...
