Today on KSR: The Pelicans Win another Playoff Game


The New Orleans Pelicans went to Portland as underdogs.  They left with two wins.

After Anthony Davis dominated game one, another former Wildcat controlled game two.  Rajon Rondo was one assist shy of a triple-double.  The former Kentucky point guard finished with 16 points, 10 rebounds and 9 assists in a 111-102 win over the Trail Blazers.

Davis still posted a double-double, finishing with 22 points, 13 rebounds and 2 blocks.  Darius Miller knocked down a pair of threes to score eight points.

The Pelicans will return to New Orleans tomorrow night at 9:00 to secure a 3-0 series lead.  Entering the 2018 playoffs, Anthony Davis had never won a postseason game.  Now he’s inching closer to his first series win.

“Who in the Hell is Terry Rozier?”

For the second straight game, the Celtics defeated the Milwaukee Bucks.  For the second straight game, former Louisville Cardinal Terry Rozier outplayed Eric Bledsoe.  Last night, he outscored the former Cat 23 to 12.  For most of the action, the two have guarded each other.  After the game, Bledsoe was asked about Rozier’s game.

The Rivalry never stops.

Louisville Baseball Smoked Kentucky

A lead turned into a route pretty quickly.  With a season series sweep on the line, Kentucky threw out a Cardinal at home to get the second out of the fourth inning.  Instead of closing out the inning, the Cats gave up two runs.

In the top of the fifth, Tristan Pompey was eight feet short of retaking the lead with a three-run bomb.  After leaving runs on the field, the wheels came off.  Louisville tacked on four runs in the fifth and two more in the sixth to win 8-1.

Shout out to all the Kentucky fans that made it to Jim Patterson Stadium.  A sell out, at least a third of the crowd was in blue for a beautiful evening of baseball.

Rick Pitino Keeps Talking

That whole “I’m not doing an interview again” thing lasted about two weeks.  Sad!

Pitino did another interview and sounded interested in the Siena job

Sports are Awesome

For just a moment, Francisco Lindor gave Puerto Rico a reason to cheer.

Devastated by Hurricane Maria, the island is still struggling to recover from the storm that damaged Puerto Rico’s infrastructure.  Many people still do not have power, but last night, Lindor put a smile on their faces, and not just because he donated his playoff salary to aid recovery efforts.

In the first game of a two-game series in Guyabo, Puerto Rico, the Cleveland Indians’ hometown hero played the role perfectly.  A tie game in the fifth inning, Lindor’s ball sailed to right field as the crowd breathlessly waited to see if the ball could make it over the fence.

    Yep, Rozier is straight up punking Bledsoe so far. But ESPN wrote an article how the Bucks (and former Dookie) Jabari Parker has been the buggest disappointment for Milwaukee.
    It sure is fun watching 3 Cats on one team play in a big NBA playoff game and win (Pelicans)…too bad Boogie isn’t there or even on the sidelines.

    Instead of baseball games Puerto Rico, maybe you could pitch in and help with getting the lights back on and quit throwing our budget out of whack….

      PR has the most corrupt electricity system in the world, prices are high, technology is primitively and there’s no other competition for services. We could fly 747s in at 2am, carrying 32billion in unmarked, untraceable US money ( like Obama did for Iran) and lights still wouldnt be on in PR

    Rondo has found his second wind in NOLA; watching his chemistry with AD is pure enjoyment.

    Maybe a little context on the “sports are awesome” sectional. Being that you’re the only one who watches baseball, it might be helpful to tell the readers what the game was all about. God you’re and idiot, Nick.

      the game was about baseball. It was played in PR but it was about baseball. What more do you need?

    Bledsoe better know who the f&[email protected] that is. He’s the guy that’s been embarrassing you. I’m all for the attitude but you gotta be winning to validate it.

    I’m amazed at how much better Rozier is in the pros than in college. Seems like Rick didn’t utilize him, or perhaps he’s improved a lot more.

    Maybe he’s just better than Bledsoe, period? It appears so.

    Bledsoe obviously doesn’t like Terry.

    Let’s see how game 3 goes in that matchup.

    Darius MIller is a bada$$. Scoring 8 points on two three pointers.
