Did they use up all the run what are they gonna do against Auburn or duke who got some left liberal and a few more runs than -- the away. Well thank god -- it's gone yeah. Baseball team improved to 1511. And one in the SEC after -- -- ten nothing in the opening game of the regular season finale. Cartwright has the sign in the payoff big she is on the way soaring at a Messi struck gave out of that doesn't cartwright strikes out the side and the tigers have just picked up. There's sixteen days. Shut out of. Year's freshman -- -- brought his a game as the lefty allowed just two hits and no runs over eight scoreless innings. Andrew Stevens and Tyler Moore each had two hit night with three runs batted games you go off yet rallied back to win their series opener twelve to -- over you will Monroe. -- KG it's improved to 47 and seven on the year. Too late dropped their fourth straight contest losing 921 to Florida international. His efforts open their series a Colorado Springs within eight to two victory. Over to the NBA -- the Indiana Pacers have earned the right to face the Miami Heat in the Eastern Conference finals for the second straight year. David West led the way with a game high 29 points and the pacers advanced by downing the wizards 93 to eighty. He was as the entire Indian squad looked at this game as a must win after their game five loss. We begin communicating right after that game just before and everything we have into -- comics who we thought this was our big sever. Even though we knew we had next door of hope that this was -- themselves. Kevin Durant shot five for eight from three point range of finished with 39 point as the OKC thunder beat LA clippers 10 -- in 98 to advance to the Western Conference finals. They'll face the San Antonio Spurs. The -- also had a game high sixteen rebounds for -- see who trailed by fourteen with less than two minutes left in the second quarter before dominating much of the second half.

Game two of LSU baseball at all -- I'm Steve Geller -- early morning look at sports. All right so if we rewind the clocking go back in time to take a look at your predictions for the NBA finals initially you were a big spurs. You on the spurs man you thought they had what it was gonna take to get to the finals yet they just seem like a team all year. That had their heads. You know right in the right direction determined and focused on giving this championship this year and that without controversy surrounding the clippers and then. Back of the team came together with their coach to try and tell the honor you know where to stick it you thought that perhaps the clippers -- now the team of destiny. Yet but that would elevate their game and there was like this big weekend could be released from British for their backs and be able to carry them to the finals but it looks like peacekeepers. That they've they've advanced but the OKC thunder were able to take care of them just too -- haven't yet yet taken the clippers. Just too much to -- -- too much Russell Westbrook sent -- lose anyway. -- -- the -- the swear I don't know if they wanna hear that and her cancer and the clippers are out -- back to the spurs. And it's -- the pacers won the right. -- -- affect the heat is that are right now that -- privileged that you get the lady to yet they're gonna have a tough go and obviously the defending champs are you know the defending champs for a reason. The pacers have been up and down this post season but have managed to make it this far. I still like the heat and the events in the finals policy heat heat vs spurs in the NBA finals. I'm WWL. Attacks and it's and it's evidence tag on the little rabbit would do widow -- and -- widow wags and it's not like Elmer budge. -- fudge your forecast.
