LeBron finally won his first game 7 as the Heat rolled past Boston 101-88 on Saturday night to punch their ticket to the NBA Finals where they'll play Kevin Durant and the Oklahoma City Thunder. Chris Bosh had three 3-pointers in the win… they're definitely glad to have him back. Game 1 of the finals kicks off on Tuesday night in Oklahoma City….
And speaking of Finals….the LA Kings just can't close out those Devils. Once up 3 games to nill on New Jersey, the Devils have now won two in a row after a big 2-1 win on Saturday night. Now while only 1 team has come back from an 0-3 deficit in the history of the NHL Stanley Cup finals, Jersey isn't going down quietly. Game 6 is in LA Monday night, which means by the time you see this video, there could be a new Stanley Cup champion….or we could be facing an epic Game 7….either way, check out CraveOnline's sports channel for the latest updates……
Timothy Bradley defeated Manny Pacquiao for the WBO welterweight title on Saturday night…. and some fans are crying corrupt! OK….well many fans are crying some kind of collusion. While many were convinced that Pacquiao controlled the match, including the Associated Press who had him winning 117-111, the two judges ended with a split decision, giving Bradley the 115-113 edge. The win gave Bradley at $5 million dollar payday, as he remains undefeated. It's Pacquiao's first loss since 2005. Andddd if there is any justice in the world whatsoever, you can be sure there will be a re-match. But hey, that's Boxing……..
And unfortunately some heavy news, as two players from last year's Auburn football team were shot and killed Saturday night when a fight broke out at an off-campus party. Ladarious Phillips and Ed Christian, both only 20 years old, were the victims caught in the gunfire. Eric Mack, a sophomore lineman for the Tigers was also shot, but was released from the hospital on Sunday. The suspect is 22 year old Desmonte Leonard, who now has a warrant for three counts of capital murder…………..
Rafael Nadal defeated Novak Djokavic for his record seventh French Open title.
