Two teams will face each other in the NBA Eastern Conference Finals, but all eyes will be on the two best players in the conference as Milwaukee’s Giannis Antetokounmpo squares off against Toronto’s Kawhi Leonard. In the semis, Antetokounmpo led the Bucks to a relatively easy victory over the Boston Celtics in five games, while Leonard’s Raptors literally needed every second of its seven games against the Sixers before advancing. Game 1 is set for tonight at Milwaukee’s Fiserv Forum and you can get Dunkel’s pick by clicking HERE.
Last night, the Boston Bruins put themselves in the driver’s seat of the NHL Eastern Conference Finals with a 2-1 win at Carolina that pushed the Bruins lead to 3-0 in the series. The outlook in the Western Conference, however, is not so clear as the St. Louis Blues and San Jose Sharks split the first two games in San Jose. Game 3 will take place tonight at St. Louis’ Enterprise Center and you can get Dunkel’s pick by clicking HERE.
The St. Louis Cardinals (23-19) limped into Atlanta yesterday after dropping the final three games of their homestand to the Pittsburgh Pirates. But 14 runs on 14 hits against the Braves (21-21) look to have re-energized the Redbirds. St. Louis will try to make to two straight today against the Braves as they send Michael Wacha (3-0, 5.35) to the mound against Atlanta’s Mike Soroka (3-1, 1.21).
