The Putback: A Recap of Yesterdays Sports

What’s up guys? So I’ve decided to add a new feature to the blog, called the Putback. Every morning I’ll be posting a quick recap of what went on the day before in sports, to go along with the weekly articles you’ll be getting. Nothing too fancy or detailed, but enough to let you know what you missed in case you got busy with that thing they call life.

NBA Tip-off:

Cleveland Cavaliers – Boston Celtics: Last night was tip off for the NBA and we got started with Cleveland-Boston at the Q. Cleveland jumped out by 13 early but Boston eventually came back and built a 15-point lead en route to the big road win. Lebron had 38, 8 dimes and 4 blocks, but it was a 1-on-5 performance that has to have Cleveland fans worried about how they can do against the elite this season. Boston was lead by Paul Pierce. The Truth had 23 points, including ten to seal it in the final four minutes and get the Celts the win in KG’s return, 95-89.

Washington Wizards – Dallas Mavericks: ┬áSpeaking of returns, Gilbert Arenas was finally back on the court for a game that mattered for what seemed like the first time in five years. He told anyone who would listen this off-season that he was back to full-strength, and boy was he ever. Arenas had 29 points to go along with 9 assists and Washington surprised the Mavs in Dallas, 102-91, despite 34-9 from Dirk Nowitzki. Shawn Marion had 16 in his Dallas debut but it wasn’t enough to stop the Wiz.

Portland Trailblazers – Houston Rockets: This was a playoff re-match from last years first round won by Houston, and Portland definitely looked like a team looking for revenge. They jumped out to a 20-point lead late in the third quarter, but had to withstand a Rockets rally that cut the lead to as little as six points late in the fourth. In the end Brandon Roy and Travis Outlaw were too much for the Rockets, combining for 43 points in a 96-87 win. Trevor Ariza had 12 in his Rockets debut.

Los Angeles Lakers – Los Angeles Clippers: On the night when the Lakers received their ridiculously huge Championship rings from last season, the defending champs showed us exactly why they are the favorites to win. Lead by 33 points and 8 rebounds from Finals MVP Kobe Bryant, along with 26-13 from Andrew Bynum and 16-13-5 from Lamar Odom, the Lakers were easily able to overcome the absence of Pau Gasol due to injury. Ron Artest had 10-5-4 in his Lakers debut.

World Series:

Just a reminder to those of you who forgot, the World Series between the defending champion Philadelphia Phillies and the New York Yankees starts tonight at the new Yankee Stadium. As much as this prediction pains me, says here the Yankees will win it in 6, let’s all hope I’m wrong.

Coming soon… Check back later today for a surprise article!
