Quote of the day
"We can't slow them down." -- Phoenix Suns coach Alvin Gentry, after a 124-112 loss in the second game of the NBA Western Conference Finals
We get a mini-burst of interleague play this weekend. That means seven A.L. designated hitters will lose their customary lineup slot. If you have a DH on the Angels, Baltimore, Boston, Detroit, Yankees, Rays, or Toronto, be prepared for less than a full complement of action this weekend.
The Lakers prevailed again last night, wining by 12 after being tied at the end of three stanzas. It’s sometimes said that an NBA playoff series doesn’t really start to take meaning until one team fails to hold serve (i.e., loses on the home court), so – notwithstanding Phil Jackson’s 45-0 streak – this one still hasn’t really “started.” On the other hand, the pressure is squarely on Phoenix now, as they have to win the next two at home if they are to have any shot at advancing.
