NH B-ball fans will get to see their favorite son, Concord’s own Matt Bonner, play into the next round of the NBA play-off’s. Yep, the Spurs beat the #2 seeded Mavericks last night and will move on to play the Phoenix Sun in round 2.
I’ll be torn on this one, as Steve Nash is such a good guy, with his politics and philanthropic activities and staunch WPS support and all. In my heart, I’ll be rooting for him to move deeper into the play-off’s … and for Bonner to do well, but for his Spurs to stop their run.
Do you think AZ will wait ’til after the play-off’s to deport Steve? I’m guessing yes.
On the WPS front, sadly Carli Lloyd has broken her ankle … as her hard luck WPS saga continues. Tomorrow the Breakers face off against the Red Stars in Cambridge … on what looks to be a beautiful, summerish day in these parts. Dang … wish I could go! 😦
Here’s some Week 3 WPS analysis from Set Piece, if you’re so inclined. (It seems the podcast is only available via download this week.)
