Here's your playoff-packed weekend roundup...
Get your brooms, our first two victims of the NBA playoffs are ready to be swept away. The San Antonio Spurs dealt the Memphis Grizzlies such a thorough ass-whooping in their series sweep it made Grizzlies head coach Dave Joerger cry like a baby
. The Detroit Pistons didn't fare any better, falling 100-98 in a Game 4, series-sealing sweep to LeBron James and the Cleveland Cavaliers last night, ensuring Justin Bieber will be able to perform
at the Quicken Loans Arena in Cleveland on April 26. Luckily
Elsewhere, the Bay Area held its breath at the end of the 2nd quarter when Golden State Warriors star Steph Curry slipped and fell with his legs awkwardly splayed out
, looking much like your dad would if he tried to do the splits. Early indications are that Curry has an MLC sprain, but he's expected to undergo an MRI this morning. The number of devastated fans jumping to their deaths from the Bay Bridge tonight should provide a clear indication to the severity of the injury. Despite losing Curry, the Dubs ended up setting a new playoff three-point record (21
in a single game) on their way to beating the Houston Rockets 121-94, giving them a 3-1 series lead.
Sure, it was a bad weekend for two NBA teams, but the body count was much higher for deceased playoff teams in the NHL.The Detroit Red Wings, Florida Panthers, Los Angeles Kings, Minnesota Wild, New York Rangers, and Philadelphia Flyers lost their playoff series
and will have to settle for drinking beer out of cans
