As you guys know, I'm a huge Patriots fan.
I do plan toe be on the call for every Patriots game this season and I'm really excited to be covering them this year, and, uh, I'm really unsure of what you expect on Sunday as well.
See Cam Newton play his first game as a Patriot, the Lakers cruising right now over the Rockets late in the second quarter.
So I'll head over to the Vegas Dallas game the first time tonight as the Rockets Lakers head to commercial break, Uh, night stars out in Edmonton just underway.
Gained three, As I said of the Western Conference final, or just a minute and a half in to this one, and it was a shutout.
Victory won nothing.
The Stars one game, rather the Yeah, the Stars.

Nothing in a Vegas win in Game two.
So we'll see what the story is tonight in Game three as we shall see who ends up taking the Siri's lead at the end of the night, it's now in the neutral zone.
Dallas with the puck, Pavelski will send it in deep.

Now the Stars will work out from their own zone through center.
It's Andrew Caggiano.
Caguan will poke it in the direction of a loner who will steer it to the oncoming Zack White Cloud.
Now it's Jonathan Marshall, so through center, sense it in deep.
Carlson chases it down.
Jamie Benn with it.
Jamie Benn cross sites to Alexander, agile a fragile over the past through the hey skin and Hey, Skin and pokes it ahead.
The centering feed and what to say by Robin Lehner.
The puck loose in front and Carlson eventually gets it over to the left wing boards.
But the stars not done yet.
Sagan will fire it off the end boards, and now it's played up by Brayden McNabb and out through center Vegas trying to counter the other way.
Carlson knocked off the puck by Jamie Oleksiak.
It's Rachael off up the left wing and letter will steer that away with the stick.
Here is Marcia, Marcia so finds the oncoming Shea Theodore Theodore with speed, now sends it in back of the Dallas goal on the far side, it will be swung in deep.

Here's Blake coma for Dallas.
Coma will backhanded and deep, and it gets all the way to the far side.
Big Head delivered.
There has no sec took the hit.
You're glad the Rockets are losing? Yeah, yeah, I will say, I don't like the Rockets that much, but I absolutely hate the Lakers as a Celtics fan, so I wouldn't mind if the Rockets one I would rather have them win than the Lakers.
But I understand why you want the Rockets to lose, obviously, because they knocked your team out.
Yeah, what a great night.
This is the NFL season kicking off, I said at the top of the broadcast.
I'm saving my play by play debut of the 2020 NFL season for Sunday when I'll be on the call for Patriots Dolphins.
Oh, this puck trickles through and by the post is just such a weird time, because when the NFL season gets underway.
Usually it's it's it's the NFL season, starting when the MLB is finishing up their regular season.
Yes, the MLB is finishing up their regular season, but we also have the NHL in MBA playoffs.
It just feels very strange.
Uh, but hey, we were all, you know, aching for sports back in back in, you know, April.
And now we've got all of them now to the left point for Corey Perry.
Yeah, Now I jam in the along.
The half boards eventually poked loose by ropa hints.
And now the hell.
Try toe, get it through the stats and the stats.
Now with the backhand pass intercepted, John Klingberg up the wall and Dallas able to clear that's that one.
Got by Nicholas Wa Alice in the midst of a change.
And now here comes Max Patch already Patch already the right point and the same made and it's fed out in front.

00 were scoreless early on in Game three of the Western Conference final.
They're a bunch of cry babies.

You know, that's a solid point.
You don't follow hockey, but ghost stars Casual stars Fan.
Hey, you don't have to be a die hard fan.
You know they're in the Western Conference finals, so they're they're actually doing pretty well.
11 is the score of that.
Siri's I head back over to the Lakers Rockets game, 49 39.
Los Angeles lead.
It's LeBron James, guarded by James Harden.
LeBron in the lane double teamed off the glass.
No good grabs his own rebound and a foul called on the floor against Robert Covington.
Or they might get Jeff Green for the foul.
Rather, I'm not sure there about two or three Rockets players all over LeBron James, and so one of them ended up being called for the foul as the Lakers are now in the bonus after they inbound.
So now Lakers in the bonus.
But that was the last foul to put them at the line.
From now on, here is LeBron James.
James Threads that passed through its off of P.
J. Tucker remains Lakers ball.
5 seconds remain on the shot clock.
James will inbound it for the Lakers.
He feeds it down low, and Alex Caruso lays it in.
What, Hey past there from LeBron James.
A sneaky little cut from Alex Caruso as well, thanks Michael for joining the broadcast.
The Lakers have 10 more points in the paint than the Rockets, and they lead by 12 years, a three from the left wing.
Off the mark from Green, LeBron James grabs the rebound, and here come the Lakers in transition, right? We approach halftime the kick out to Caruso, and he hits the three.
The Los Angeles Lakers taking off.
It's their largest lead of the night.
15 points, 54 39.
The score with 36 seconds left in the half.
It's James Harden, the deep three that's short and LeBron James with the rebound, James drives on green reverse layup.
Ah, foul called as well, and the Lakers are absolutely running away at the tail end of this first half.
Thanks everyone for tuning in tonight, giving you coverage of both the Western Conference semifinals here in the MBA playoffs and then the Western Conference final in the NHL playoffs.
Because why not? The Celtics aren't action tonight.
They will be tomorrow.
I'll be on the call for Game 79 Eastern time.
You will not want to miss that.
I'm gonna call for Raptor Celtics Game seven right here on SportsCastr.
Looks like LeBron James drew some blood on that jersey on the jersey.
Let's see the replay here.
Yeah, well, the drive from James's sometimes unstoppable Tucker even tried fouling him and did foul him.
But still, LeBron James made the lay up.
Just a impressive basket.
9 seconds to go in the quarter, 56 39.
As we approach the halfway mark in a pivotal Game four of this festive seven.
Siri's the Rockets looking to even up the series, the Lakers looking to take a commanding 31 Syria's leaders James will make the free throw, so the three point play makes it 57 39.
LeBron James has 7.
7 rebounds, five assists.
Working on that triple double.
Here is James Harden for the Rockets, 33 2nd difference between shot clock and game clock.
Harden is meant by the double team.
He'll find Westbrook Westbrook to the whole.
Just worked his way in 3.
Left Caruso for the three.
No, and that will do it for the first half of action.
After 24 minutes of play in Game four, it's the Los Angeles Lakers 57 the Houston Rockets 41.
Well, there'll be a lot of work to do for Houston in the second half, and the Lakers will be content.
You have to think with this current scoreline after two quarters of play halftime in Game four of the Western Conference semifinals as they have arrived at halftime, I'll get you back out to Edmonton between the Stars and the nights, who just got their game underway.
Game three of that series in the Western Conference final.
10 50 left in the first period, Riley Smith moves to the head for the Vegas Golden Knights.
Now it's a cross ice pass.
Wow gets there first for the nights he loses possession to Klingberg Klingberg, now to Jamie Oleksiak, Alexey ac in behind the goal.
Robin letters. Therefore Vegas.
We'll send it up, the boards and a steel here by and Marquis and Mark across and unable to get the shot off there for the Dallas Stars.
Was Dennis Korean off? What an opportunity that was.
Thanks for the popcorn. Much appreciated.
We're about midway through the opening period of play.
Vegas in the midst of a change.
Klingberg up the wall for Doriana.
Doriana believes it in Pavelski on the second try sends it all the way up the right wall.
This puck retreat by Shea Theodore.
You know Marcia so sent it to the left of Anton Khudobin.
And now the star is ableto move it all the way down ice, but a little too much on it as icing is the call.
Alec Martinez got there first for the nights in the foot race, but going back to that Stars opportunity, Blake Coma was holding up play for the Stars and then had a great pass cross ice, but Gurion, I've just could not quite get a shot off.
Thank you for joining the broadcast.
I appreciate it.
And okay, Kerry as well.
I greatly appreciate it.
The hits. 15 to 13.
Dallas already 9 41 left in the opening period of action from Edmonton, Alberta.
Off the faceoff win.
It's a snag by Anton Khudobin.
What a denial on Shea Theodore.
What could have easily been the first goal they came for the Vegas Golden Knights ends up being a unbelievable safe from Anton Khudobin.
All right, I will get you back out to more action in that one in a moment, But first I'll step aside as you're watching MBA.
An NHL playoff coverage live here on SportsCastr.
I am back in a moment with more.
Welcome back into the broadcast, Everybody.
I'll get you back out to the Knights Stars game in a moment, but in halftime of the Lakers Rockets game, it's Los Angeles of the 57 2 41 lead after two quarters of play and what, what what? A first half that was.
I was very impressed by the Lakers.
They were really in control for the entirety of this first half.
And although it was close through one quarter, the Lakers really got it going in the in the second.
And, you know, it also has to be said that some poor shooting on the Rockets side has has hurt them a bit.
And, uh, if the Rockets can can at least get some consistency going and improve upon their shooting, maybe they can come back in this game game and get it and get it close.
But after after that first half, the Lakers are looking very solid.
I mean, the ball movement.
They've been getting shots from from from deep in.
They've also get been getting the ball to the rack.
Um, they've been getting points in all types of ways and don't take away for anything from the Lakers defense, either.
The Lakers defense has had some solid stops.
I'm just saying the Rockets shooting has not been up to par for the most part so far tonight, and that that is a big reason why they have 41 points.
But the Lakers defense is also part of the reason why Houston have such a small amount in today's MBA at the half.
Um, s Oh, yeah, I think I think for the Los Angeles Lakers it all starts with, you know, just looking at the stats of that first half.
I mean, yes, there are 57 41 But look at the rebounds.
The Lakers were just working harder.
It feels like at times they have 27 rebounds.
Compare the Rockets.
Just have 13 Lakers.
As I said, they're moving the ball around really well, much better than the Rockets.
They have 16 assists.
The Rockets have nine.
All the statistics point towards the Lakers, and that's why the score is what it is after 24 minutes of play in this one, and I definitely I definitely I definitely see it being a very tough task for the Houston Rockets to get back into this one.
I mean, we shall.
We shall see what what the Rockets are able to string together here in the second half of the Laker.
If the Lakers play how they did in that first half in the final two quarters, I see this being a no Doubter for the Lakers that they'll get the win, and this is this is a must win two for the Rockets.
I feel like and because they can't go down 31 there's just no way Houston's coming back from a 31 deficit.
So it'll be interesting to see you know how much the Rockets wanted and how they come out in the second half.
But, yeah, going back to my point on the Lakers defense, they have been very disciplined, very organized.
They've been making it tough for the Rockets to get the ball in the paint and get quality shots from close range.
And you know, the Lakers air saying, You can take all the deep threes you want because you know, let's be honest.
The Rockets like to do that a lot of the time to.
But when the Rockets got into a slump, as they did for the most part in that first half from deep, the Lakers will be happy to let them take those shots all day.
And it's just whenever the Rockets have tried toe, get it to the hole and working, work inside and get it to the low post and and get it into the paint and try to get some points that way.
The Lakers have just made it awfully tough for them.
And when it comes to rebounding, the Lakers have been dominating in that category.
Anthony Davis has had a lot of offensive rebounds, and there's been a lot of 2nd, 2nd chance opportunities for L.
A as well, which have led to a lot of points.
But, yeah, the Lakers.
They have, I believe, double maybe more than double the amount of points in the paint compared to the Rockets and on that side of things.
I I do think that credit has to be given to the Lakers defense for making it really tough for the Rockets to get to get points in the lane.
But, you know, it's it's no surprise that the Rockets don't have that many points in the paint.
I think they only have 10 points in the paint so far tonight because they're a team that just, you know, chucks up threes for the most part.
And like tonight, when those threes aren't falling, the Rockets are in trouble.
And, yes, Houston's defense has been better in these playoffs, really.
Unexpectedly, Uh, their defense has been really good kind of out of nowhere when you compare it to how how poor their defense was in the regular season.
But when you're facing the Lakers and the Lakers are clicking on offense, it's gonna no matter how good your defense is, it's gonna be You're gonna have a tough time stopping them, and I definitely I definitely think the rock is gonna have a tough time coming back.
They're going to give it there all because they know how much is at stake in this game.
But we're just gonna have toe wait and see how, because it all comes down to the start of the third quarter.
Will Houston come out on a run because, you know, basketball is a game of runs after also, if Houston come out to a quick start in the second happen, maybe that will give them some life.
But if the same story continues as the first half, its almost gonna be a second half where we can fall asleep now.
I won't bore you guys, but I will keep you updated on that one between the Lakers and Rockets.
They're still at the half just getting you caught up on the first two quarters since I was, I only came on here and went live right at the end of the first half for the final few minutes.
Well, let me get you back out to the Stars nights, where the Dallas Stars are currently on the power play with seven minutes to go in the opening period of play.
Both teams searching for the first goal of the game here is Thomas Nosek.
Nosek shoots one on Khudobin, and that effort turned aside.
Here come the stars the other way.
It's a nice pass through the rope, a hints, but he is offsides.
25 seconds remain on the man advantage for Dallas.
No Secada half opportunity on the short handed for Vegas and the face off does take place at center ice.
It's one and controlled by the night.
Syria's Brayden McNabb, McNabb all the way onto the stick of Khudobin.
Khudobin leaves it for Miro.
Hey, skin and a skin and through center, he now finds erotic Fox a fox into the corner.
Vegas back with it.
This is all the way through the Robin letter.
It's picked up by the oncoming mural.
He's gonna Hey, scanning through center over to the left wing.
It will be taken in behind the goal by ****inson ****inson to the right point, moving in his haste going in, and he was stripped of possession nicely done there by Alex Tuck.
Here's Theodore Theodore with a shot that was blocked.
Jason ****inson got in the way and he's limping afterwards.
It's cleared out to the neutral zone.
Theodore sends it across sites.
The power play has been up for about half a minute now for Dallas and this fat across by Max Patch already know on there for Vegas.
But the second opportunity deflect out of play as it waas Nick Holden with the chance 5 48 to go in the opening period of play.
It's the Golden Knights zero, the Star zero Here on SportsCastr.
The action continues.
In a moment after this quick break.
Don't go anywhere.

Nine Eastern time.
Do not forget about it, All right, The Lakers Rockets just about set for the second half, and so I'll flip back over to the Stars night.
Sorry I left my remote over there, where Robin Lehner has led the NHL with shut outs.
By the way this postseason, he has four of them so far, the most pre, the most previous one coming two nights ago in Game two, where the Knights won three Nothing over the Stars.
We've got 5 45 left in the first.
No score between Vegas and Dallas from a Rogers Place in Edmonton, Alberta.
Here is Anton Khudobin for the Stars he finds S L and L and L up the boards goes right back to him, and now ****inson gets it through center game for the Siri's Saturday at eight Eastern Prime time slot Saturday night.
And now it's a jam out in front, Carlson trying to poke it home and now the puck loose in front.
It would. It was never covered up by Khudobin.
Here is Riley Smith down low for the nights.
They'll send it off the wall.
That point sent across, and that shot blocked on the opportunity for Alec Martinez.
Here is Jonathan Marshall.
Cell are so indirect.
Pass off the wall back to get it for the Stars.
Is Alexander Radulov.
Remind your Cowboys Rams kicks off the 2020 slate of the NFL Sunday Night Football at the brand new Ram Stadium, By the way, so five stadium it will disappointing that there won't be fans for their first ever game in that stadium, but still still be cool.
Nonetheless, to see that brand new state of the art stadium in L.
I'll be on the call for Patriots Dolphins on Sunday.
One Eastern time is the start time for that one.
Chandler Stephenson of Vegas had an assist in Game two, is on ice for 14 minutes 14 seconds.
This parked a flex wide.
And now here's Jamie Benn with it for Dallas, then plays it off the boards, singing over.
Now it's back to Oleksiak Oleksiak off the end boards, and now it's in the corner.
Second on the left point.
Alexey exceeds the cross second opportunity to save made by Lennar.
Four to go in the first period.
Here's a three on two Tuck leaves it in front wraparound chance, and it goes wide on a golden chance there for Chandler.
Ah, big hit was delivered afterwards, behind the Dallas goal.
Sagan went down for the Stars and a little scrum afterwards, falling the whistle.
Yeah, Jamie Benn and Brayden McNabb.
We're both going at it.
Well, they skated down the ice.
Yeah, this is a great chance for Chandler Stephenson Wraparound opportunity.
It was a good save by Khudobin Short side that puck deflected over the end boards into the protective netting, and then the chaos ensued.
After that, the hits 18 16 Dallas and this Siri's has from the start, become a physical one, to say the least.
The shots on goal 10 4 nights face off, controlled by Vegas now will be sent all the way around.
Cloud Allah Philip Puck in the corner over the right point with White cloud.
White Cloud Got it to watch, but raw knocked off the puck.
It's the other way.
Arianna! Arianna been behind the goal letters there for Vegas that passed through and poked ahead by wa.
Here is Jamie Oleksiak Oleksiak through the neutral zone, Men at the boards and held up by Zack White Cloud.

Ryan Reeves had it for a moment.
The Stars keep it in the offensive zone.
Behind the goal.
Knocked out of possession was Rod****.
Fox a up the middle.
It goes out of the zone.
And here is Miro.
Hey, skin! And to 49 left in the opening period.
Hints up the wall.
Corey Perry finds keeping around to keep it around so that hey, skin and he's going across.
And now the shot from the slot, the flex over the boards and out of play Corey Perry with the chance in the high slot.
Yeah, right from the start of this game, the Dallas Stars came out with plenty of activity on the four check.
And even in the open ice, they've delivered Cem big, clean hits and you know, talent.
You know, when you look at it on paper, you know, when it comes to talent, Vegas have more of it than Dallas.
And, you know, the stars know that the Stars know that they're the underdogs.
They know that it's gonna be a tough Siri's to win.
But it's the NHL playoffs, and anything is possible, and the Stars are well aware of that as well.
I mean, they beat the Avalanche in in the in the previous round, so they they have plenty of confidence in this Siri's and in one way to maybe get Vegas off their game is coming out physically right away and and knocking them off.
You know, 50 50 bucks and and so far, no score between these two teams under two minutes to go in the opening period of play into the neutral zone.
Cross ice feed from Stevenson.
No one there for the nights.
And now Oleksiak goes into the Vegas known white cloud braces for the hit delivered by ****inson.
Now iCloud Double team Fox A and ****inson battling for the puck.
My cloud got it up the boards to Mark Stone Stone, now out to the neutral zone, a collision center ice and Alexi X going to be penalized.
He took down Tuck right in the neutral zone.
Let's see the replay here.
Yeah, a trip from Oleksiak, although I'm not sure there was really much in it.
Tuck, I think Just God escape.
Caught in the ice.
And, yes, there was the stick made contact with the foot of, ah, of of Tuck.
But I don't think that's what forced him to go down.
I think he just got a skate caught in the ice.
A questionable decision.
Dallas understandably so a bit frustrated about the call.
But it's an opportunity here for the final minute, plus of the opening period for Vegas to take the lead and strike first on the man advantage here is Carlson.
Carlson in the corner tried to send it across, but Fox a got a foot to that one is left ankle broke.
That pass up now all the way down it goes.
Carlson will work it back up entering the zone through the slot is Carlson, but immediately is knocked off the puck.
Stars look to clear now to the neutral zone.
Cross ice pass to Max Patch already the former Montreal Canadian catch Already in deep there is Andre Sacra Sacra ahead, unable to clear it.
There it was, Erotic Fox, and that shot by Shea Theodore, gloved by Khudobin Anton Khudobin has been tested.
Ah, plenty here in this opening period and so far, so good for the Stars goalie who is really broken out this season, especially in the playoffs.
He's been very impressive.
This was a good This is a good look from Theodore.
He had a good look.
That shot coming in at 83 miles an hour on Khudobin is able to make the save one or two to go in the Vegas power play.
9 seconds to go in the period.
This **** sent all the way down by the Dallas Stars.
We'll leave it there Come Schmidt for the nights.
The tuck it got by him.
Klingberg will clear it out to the neutral zone.
And that will just about do it as Khudobin stops that shot from beyond the Blue Line and one period in the books from Edmonton.
The same theme continues, and that theme would be good defense throughout the series.
So far shut outs for both teams and games one and two, respectively, and so far were scoreless through one period of play.
20 minutes in the books.
As we've arrived at the first intermission in Game three of the Western Conference final between the Vegas Golden Knights in the Dallas Stars, I'll get you out the second period action when the second period gets underway in about 17 18 minutes or so.
But for now, let's get out to second half action between the Lakers and Rockets.
Nice passed down the length of the floor.
Davis has fouled on the shot by Tucker and got the bucket.
This was a perfect test.
LeBron James on a dime for Anthony Davis and the Lakers making it look easy.
They now lead it by 20 with 7 53 to go in the third quarter.
Somehow, the Rockets are already in the bonus, even though we're just four minutes into the second half.
Anthony Davis, by the way, 16 points tonight on five of 10 shooting for Los Angeles.
And so the free throws made.
It's a 21 point lead for the Lakers, who have come out in the second half, just as they did in the first half.
You've been looking for a response.
Here is James Harden Harden over to the right wing.
The three from Macklemore is good.
Three point. Make their for the Rockets.
Now Caruso will bring it up for Los Angeles.
That's Caruso, Joe LeBron James James now to Caldwell.
Pope Anthony Davis, guarded by Harden working baseline, now finds the oncoming Caruso and Danny Green with a fall up, taps it in.
And now Caruso with a steel almost.
But he stepped out of bounds on the effort to keep it in play.
What a steel that would have been if Alex Caruso is able to stay in first.
It was Danny Green with a tapping on the fall up attempt after the Caruso missing.
Yeah, the left foot of Caruso is just on the line.
Yeah, the Lakers have 10 offensive rebounds tonight.
The Rockets just have one and the Lakers have 15 2nd chance points.
The Rockets don't have any cannot overlook those statistics right there inside the Covington.
You couldn't get that shot to fall.
Now it's James with the push.
LeBron James all the way, the layup good and the Lakers up by 22 72 to 50.
It's all L A tonight.
10 points, 11 rebounds, six assists, A double double for him.
Four more assists would get him a triple double.
Now the corner three.
It's McLemore from the corner.
Thanks, Isaac, for joining the stream.
What about the NFL game? I know I'm saying I'm saving.
I'm saving my play by play.
NFL NFL 2020 season debut for Sunday for the for the Patriots Dolphins.
What do you mean, I'm jealous? No, not that.
The Joe that the Chiefs one.
If if the NBN NHL playoffs weren't going on right now, I definitely would have been doing that game, but yeah, but like, I don't know I could I could have added that to my coverage, and I've been checking in on it and, uh, I don't know.
I feel like everyone streaming the Chiefs Texans.
I was like, Why not be different and do this.
Plus, I'll be doing I'll be doing plenty of NFL games throughout the course of the season, and and I'll try to do every Patriots game as I did last year, so Yeah, exactly.
Sometimes I like to just be a little bit different than other people.
Watson isn't passing.
Really? Yeah, he's handing it off to David Johnson.
Johnson doing great.
Yeah, I've been checking into that.
Do I want to take a break and watch the game without commentating it? Yeah.
What do you mean, like this game or just any, like, games in general? Oh, yeah.
Yeah, I see what you mean. Yeah.
Yeah, it's true.
I mean, yeah, yeah, yeah. Sorry.
I misunderstood at first. Yeah.
I mean, yeah, I see what you mean.
But then again, yeah, yeah, I understand completely.
I mean, sometimes, like, my emotions get the best of me like that Bruins lightning game.
Like I try to stay professional, but yeah, I know what you mean.
Like, I'm a huge Boston sports fan, and sometimes I go a bit too crazy, but yeah, you go up, up. Yeah.
Jump up and down.
When Byron Jones gets interception.
Yeah, I'll do that during Patriots games, but I think you know some Some people like seeing me go crazy on streams once in a while, too.
I mean, so, yeah, I I just love commentating games, and and the Patriots are the team I know you know the most about, obviously.
And so I feel I feel very confident commentating their games especially, but yeah, sometimes, I guess, you know, it would be nice to just, you know, sit down and enjoy the game.
But I do truly love commentating games.
I love doing play by play for all all different types of sports games.
As you know, so cooks with a 10 yard run. Okay.
I remember cooks back when, Ah, in fact, when he was with the New England, but yeah, the Stars nights, currently at the first intermission, and the Knights had the majority of the chances, they really did.
