Quick Hits: Matusz Looking For A Win, Caps Advance, And Kobe Bryant
The Orioles will go for a sweep Thursday night at the yard. They will also hope that Brian Matusz will be able to snap his personal 13-start losing streak dating back to last season. Matusz is the only Oriole starter without a win this season.
It was a game 7 to remember for the Caps Wednesday night. There is a pair of them Thursday that will help decide Washington’s opponent in the next round. The top-seeded Rangers host the Senators, and the Panthers will face the Devils in Florida.
And it’s the final day of the NBA regular season. Kobe Bryant needs 38 points Thursday to win the NBA’s scoring title for the season. Bryant is averaging 27.9 points per game, just one-tenth of a point behind Kevin Durant of the Thunder who finished his season Wednesday night. Bryant is averaging 33.5 points per game in the two previous meetings against Thursday’s opponent, the Sacramento Kings.
The NFL Draft will have its first round Thursday, and while the Colts and Redskins have made known what their selections are for 1 and 2 respectively, the Minnesota Vikings now take center stage for their selection at number 3.
Lions wide receiver Calvin Johnson will grace the cover of the latest edition of EA Sports Madden NFL 13 video game. The selection was made by a fan vote. Last season Johnson caught 96 passes for more than 1,600 yards and 16 touchdowns.
