LAst Night's Action: Lakers Pull Out a Win in Denver
LA Lakers defeat Denver Nuggets 92-88. The game was tied at 86-86 with a minute left. Three pointers by Ramon Sessions and Steve Blake sank the Nuggets in their hopes of tying the series. Not even a Danilo Gallinari flop could slow the Lakers down. Kobe Bryant had 22 points, Andrew Bynum had 19 points while Blake had 10 and Jordan Hill had 12 off the bench. Lakers lead the series 3-1.
Chicago Cubs defeat LA Dodgers 4-3 (11 innings). After a seemingly interminable rain delay, the Dodgers had a 3-2 lead going into the bottom of the ninth. Javy Guerra blew a save, and Jamey Wright lost the game for the Dodgers. Jerry Hairston, Jr. blew out a hamstring on a infield hit to lead off the second inning. It looks like Justin Sellers will hop back on a plane to Los Angeles and rejoin the team.
LA Angels defeat Toronto Blue Jays 4-3. The tweets came in abundance during the Kings game: Albert Pujols has hit a homer! Good. That's one more than Ted Lilly. The Angels also get the win.
LA Kings defeat St. Louis Blues 3-1. The Kings are an NHL-best 8-1 in the playoffs while sweeping the Blues in the second round. Jordan Nolan got the scoring going while Dustin Brown scored twice while Jonathan Quick made 23 saves. The Kings will face either Phoenix or Nashville in their second trip to the Conference Finals in franchise history. Of course the Kings beat Toronto in seven games in 1993 to win the Campbell Conference en route to the Stanley Cup Finals.
