Good morning, New York sports fans! Despite not having a New York area organization involved in the 2011 NBA Finals, many local (and national) sports fans enjoyed the Dallas Mavericks defeating the Miami Heat, 105-95, Sunday night. Dirk Nowitzki netted 21 points, including 10 in the fourth quarter, to earn the series MVP, while teammate Jason Terry scored 31 points in a spectacular effort.â†µ
Meanwhile, Lebron James finished with 21 points, but was again non-existent in the fourth quarter. I understand that James' game and the rest Miami Heat will be broken down and ridiculed for the rest of the summer, but they all deserve it. They all played with little passion for a squad that would like to win not one... Not two... Not three... Not four... Not five... Championships.â†µ
Yankees 9, Indians 1: The smoking-hot bat of Curtis Granderson -- four hits, two RBI and two runs -- again helped the New York earn its third straight victory Sunday afternoon. Derek Jeter went 2-for-5 to move within seven hits of the historic milestone of 3,000. The question is: Will "The Captain" collect enough hits in the next four home games to reach the milestone at home?â†µ
Mets 7, Pirates 0: New York used a four-run eighth inning and a sensational effort by starting pitcher Chris Capuano to beat Pittsburgh. The victory moves the Mets to one game below .500. New York finishes the four-game set against Pittsburgh Monday at 7:05 p.m.
