Yo, yo, yo, What's up? What's up? What's up? Wake up Call with every sports show on SportsCastr live here on the air.
How you doing Monday morning? Hope both.
Well, hope you doing OK wherever you are in the glory of Sports World were here back again in Evan.
10. Alberta, Canada.
Get a lot to get to honky talk basketball talk.
No, I gotta feed as much en BA playing games might be the future.
Steve might be a thing you see from now on, because after what we saw in the game between Portland and Memphis, why not keep it? Why not keep that for whenever a number nine feed is four games or less behind the eight seed going on? Why not? It was great drama.
We saw Portland Trail Blazers beat Memphis Grizzlies to get the number eight seed in the Western Conference in the postseason and the old play the L A Lakers.
That was the peak off Damian Lillard going off and C J McCollum battling to get that Blazers team into the postseason.
You saw guys like John Durant in his rookie year come out and and Joe.
Hey, listen, I'm gonna be here for quite some time.
I'm gonna do all I can.
I mean, if you're really fan, it does suck because he went into this.
You went into the pause at a playoff seed and you're going home now without making the playoffs in a 1 26 1 22 game.
But I still enjoy it.
He's on his game.
General Rand went off for 35 points in that game.
Dillon Brooks also had a big game of 2020 and two euros.
Valanciunas had 22 17.
Here's a guy who had a really begin as well to try and keep the Grizzlies alive in that ballgame.
But seeing CJ and seeing Damian Lillard, those two were not gonna be denied.
I called in 29 Lillard had 31 then Carmelo Anthony Carmelo having a big 21 point game.
Remember, Camilla was someone people wrote off.
He though it's over knowing that time again because after that, things went sideways with the Rockets with the Bulls with the Knicks, people didn't think Carmelo play again.
The MBA and wash Red Girls here.
People Didn't think Carmelo was gonna have occur again.
You saw poor limping of chance on him, and he had delivered tenfold what he can do as a scorer in your starting five.
He is going to be a veteran leader for that bladers team come playoff time and what will be a first ever playoff matchup of Carmelo against LeBron with that Port Lakers Siri's.
So I'll be definitely a match toe watch.
I think that's serious. Also, go seven.
I think that is a If you were in the Lakers, you didn't want to face Portland.
You would have much rather face Memphis in the postseason.
Siri's when you're going up against the Blazers, you got a turn.
Guys on the roster who've been in but in big postseason, Siri's, who won some massive postseason Siri's.
You don't give me experience off Memphis.
I mean, yeah, you have your newfound shoes and Mon lineup in Memphis, but still it is still a much younger and line up with the Grizzlies, then with the pool and Cheryl Blazers.
So I think the Lakers gonna be in tough and that first round matchup.
But Hey, that's with me.
If you feel differently on that, let me know.
I think that will be a very entertaining seven game series in the first round in the Western Conference.
I cannot wait for that.
I'm done. Of course. Got mentioned. Use of Nurkic.
22 boards, 22 rebounds and six assists.
The big man used Nurkic.
That dude came back from injury even better playing 40 minutes, not ballgame.
22 21, my God, that is a dominant center for the Blazers.
You should be happy.
You should be over the moon if your blazer span with Lillard McCollum.
Anthony on your kitsch Putting in work like that, you gotta be happy if your ah fat of the pulling Trailblazers I'll be fun.
If you will be fun, of course, in the rest of the n b. A.
A serious who I think this series.
I don't think we'll be close and me if me being biased by think Toronto in Brooklyn.
That will be a serious where credit toe credit, Darvon and what he's done in Brooklyn to put that team where they are, he does with an old respect.
I don't see that game pastor onto.
I think that is a Toronto and four theory.
I think Toronto just have too many weapons for Brooklyn to really be a threat. Not Siri's.
Fighting got strong is 14 I didn't down from the Clippers.
That will be one entry one West to because I'll really be on the first real power battles for guy like Luca Don Church, who has shown us that he's going to put the Mavericks on his back for next decade.
Or choose how we have fun three to watch as well.
Den on the theory that could really go either way, I think, is Denver and Utah.
That isn't true.
I also cannot call right now.
I don't know where the edge in that series.
I really don't all I can say that.
That's gonna be one where the throughout up that out of the three and six Siri's Utah is much better than a number of 60.
I wouldn't say that much and credit to Utah, the dynamic of Gobert and David Mitchell.
It's still working well, even with the whole we know about the rift in Utah, we know what the rest would Mitchell and go bare in terms of what happened when Gobert went around and handling the Rhona as it wasn't a real virus touching microphones, touching player Deng gear we know about the rest would Mitchell getting on the virus.
We know those two have been very distant even before what happened, apparently even before the um, Rhona a probably paid their relationship have been very strained before that.
So there's only added to it that only attitude things during the lock down.
But, hey, you know what? Today is the business.
If these these to finally have played with each other still, and if they can remain on the same page and the postseason, the Utah Jazz are going to be its We gotta watch when it comes in the postseason and comes down and hiding is here low cut, fan and hiding.
How you doing? You doing so and these games? And I know people are going to say, 00 but they're all there.
More morning games, their evening, their morning games, afternoon games.
But if you're not back at work, where you going? If you're not back in the office or the office.
Has he working at home until 2021? What do you mad about, really? Where is your very angry at With so many morning and afternoon games in the postseason, you're looking at games right now.
Ah, the Monday Games.
Utah, Denver and I.
Game one kicks off today at 1 30 Eastern time.
11 30 Mountain, Brooklyn, Toronto to 4 p.m.
Eastern. Two PM Mountain.
These are the early games, 4 30 PM, Mountain time, Philadelphia, Boston and then the prime time game is Dallas Acker, Dallas, Aquaman, Diego, Dallas, Dallas That, like I was to tell segments like Whoa! Sacramental was even close to making the postseason.
A is the late night game for today.
And then tomorrow we got on again.
A slate of morning games again earlier, or their opinion games with Milwaukee Miami afternoon game.
Morgan in Orlando, Milwaukee in the morning and then Miami Indie Anne Afternoon, O. K. C.
And Houston at 4 30 It's too bad that would've been a great stories have on in front.
A crowd would have been OK C. And Houston.
Knowing the history of these two franchises Oh, that would have been agreed.
Have what they crowd.
I mean, you're gonna have for the family.
There were gonna be quarantining, but if of the same without having the 18,000 fans and animosity and the back and forth off O K c.
And Houston with Chris Paul Westbrook and hard enough and love them from a crowd.
But you know what? It is what it is.
We're still getting the postseason match up regardless.
So we're still getting it.
Fans are no fan, so enjoy that he enjoyed from home.
You enjoy that at the virtual fan.
If you do get shot inside, it could be a virtual fan during the broadcast, which I think of funny because you're seeing on the NBA's doing the virtual fans right? They're not using two K or fan, too are vanishing in announcing weight.
Baseball Doing virtual fans looks really weird.
The way MBA is doing it, would the real fan sitting on the board.
You see fan reactions, you can sit with celebrities.
I think that's so cool.
Deal with the way the NBA's doing virtual fans compared to you will be in that L B. It's not working.
I don't want to see to tell NCLB the show.
Fans sitting on top of signs I live make the fan look somewhat realistic.
I saw in the Giants A's game you had fans cheering a home run in San Fran.
No, I'm sold up.
Don't have the whole fans cheering, opposing fans, home runs or reacting to what? You're gonna cheer seriously, the it that it's either make the fans look somewhat realistic or dumping entirely dump it.
It's so so what, anyways, will move off that two NHL hand their season continuing.
We're seeing out the first rounds progressing and with biggest stories.
That's happening now that you may have heard him by now with the back of the Boston Bruins, our continued their postseason without to go rascals to grasp often out for the remainder of the postseason.
And you're seeing the whole talk of 02 craft.
You know, he quit.
He doesn't want to be here anymore.
He thought you know what? He left his teammates down the trenches.
He had abandoned his troops that they had that done that on all out of the nonsense now.
Uh, So where is where? And this is where I'm just shaking my head is we're really shake my hand on things in the Siri's with Boston and Carolina.
Remember, Ive got rain bubble isolated on their own for months on end.
You don't get to leave and come back like anybody else could in the ideal situation there, there until either come finals or than team gets knocked out to graph kind of young kids at home and sounds like he wants us to be at home.
You know what I you know? I'm not going to question anybody who doesn't want remain and isolated bubble for months on end or days on.
And I'm a lot of question that as a my place to guess what's going on with to grasp its on my place to judge him, leaving in the team when the option is there to go home if you have to, or if you want to again people speculating on leaving the team in this nonsense also, stop comparing pro hockey the war.
Stop doing that.
I don't like that All this you have these troops in the trenches of whatever.
Stop that There are really wars going on around the world.
There are real situation going on where people are battling life in debt every single day in riel war zones and true combat.
So stop, Stop the bs about war.
Devious truth behind to go home.
Stop that and stop assuming you know how his home life iss Because really, you don't know it.
You don't know. It will stop going on Twitter.
I'm bashing the man for doing that.
I really don't like that.
At field rooms, you find a way to press on.
You find a way to continue.
You say, Hey, we're behind Tuco.
We support with decision or whatever or everyone afraid that.
And you move on.
You don't try and spin it and say, Oh, I wouldn't have opted out.
Oh, I know why you up that I would never do that again.
You don't know his personal life.
You don't know the man you don't know.
You really can't put yourself in that situation.
You're not it, Duke.
A raft, your knocks.
It's his family to situations and to try and play that role is reckless.
It's ignorance, really.
I don't like that when people want to play that role and see Diesel joining shot Welcome.
I just don't like the idea that you can go in there and assume, you know, Ah player, one player thinking what a player is doing.
And if thing he's not the first guy to opt out of the bubble in sports, will you have had multiple NHL players do before we've had my green do its We've had other players do it before in the NHL in the MBA that other players opt out NFL.
It's happened baseball.
We had a have slow players opt out of the season.
We have players opt out in season like your assess.
He opt out in season.
Give not the first.
I don't think he will be the last. I really don't.
I think you're gonna Seymour.
Guys who decide I don't want to be here anymore.
I've got to get out for whatever reason.
I know what respect to them.
I respect them and the decision is not easy.
These are not normal times in the NHL or in the world in general or anything at all.
So if you want to explain a half.
If you want to explain what happened, No.
What? Maybe he will.
Maybe you won't, but he is under no obligation to explain to us what happened.
If he wants to cool, if he doesn't his choice, his life, how things are, that's how things are.
We'll go back to Siri's, and I did not expect in your calendars to be up on the capital's three games to none.
I called the owners to knock off the Capitals, but to go in this series three games tonight who we taught ruins boys, Todd, Readers.
Boys are in some trouble as mad bars.
Al put home the overtime winner, assistant by Jordan Everly for that to one win.
And if you're if you're always fan, that is just pure pain right there to see an OT winner coming from my bars.
All would join Everly setting it up.
Wow, the butterfly effect of old Remington.
Wow, just that's something right there.
And then, of course, and then the blues fall asleep off going into a 30 hole with their OT win last night, and the defending champs are still out the back to get the wallet still down 2 to 1 and Vancouver that young for the Vancouver Canucks.
There are a fun team to watch.
Vancouver guys like Jake for tannin, boho or bet, and you live Pedersen.
Pedersen is first.
Playoff experience has shown us that I don't Swede can play when the when the lights are the brightest and that Krusa leads to one in that series and the Blackhawks fell back 312 c off elimination.
They're still down, three games to one.
But the Golden Knights in that in most of theories, have been dumping again, Vic Vega's first loss in the postseason.
Still, this is why I predicted the Gold Nights going Cup final when the gold mines are rolling.
They're a tough team to slow down.
They really are, as Robin Leonard took us first loss as a Golden Knights netminder.
Use unbeaten after from gain trade from Chicago.
But I don't see I don't repeat the board's man.
Letting this game from away again in Game five, I see is being put away Once again.
I see I see facing of the mistakes and putting end to Chicago's postseason, Siri's and you see what Vegas is, a team of which it is so deep you can get offense from guys like William Karlsson.
You can get it from guys like Mac Patch ready, like even back in guys like Shea Theodore Nature Mitt Scoring.
If you get an encyclopedia or a dictionary and you want to talk about scoring by committee, you'll see a picture of the Gold Nights right there when, as epitome of scoring by committee that Argentina knows have additionally offense among the Fords and the blue liners.
Any day of the week.
I love seeing that I love scene out of Vegas anyways.
Where things up.
I am out talking. Get on Friday.
This has been weakened.
Call with Avery Sports Show Enjoy a week later.
