Houston Rockets @ Portland TrailBlazers – 7:30pm ESPN: A big sports weekend in the PDX as Portland looks to close out the star studded Rockets.
Saturday May 3rd
Everton vs Manchester City – 9am CNBC: Believe it or not but Liverpool will be rooting for their cross town rivals because Man City has a game in hand on the Reds and is only three points back.
Montreal Canadiens @ Boston Bruins – 9:30am NBC: This could be the best series of the second round.
Kentucky Derby – NBC 3:20pm: It’s NBC and you know what that means, all day pregame for a race that lasts two minutes.
Atlanta Hawks @ Indiana Pacers – TBD NBA-TV: The top team in the East is fighting for its playoff life against the upstart Hawks.
Memphis Grizzlies @ Oklahoma City Thunder – TBD NBA-TV: Only one game in this series hasn’t gone to overtime.
Golden State Warriors @ Los Angeles Clippers – TBD NBA-TV: Set aside the soon to be ex-Clippers owner. This is a good series and game seven should be something to see.
Sunday May 4th
Minnesota Wild @ Chicago Blackhawks – Noon NBC: This, like all second games in a best of seven series, is pivotal.
Sporting KC @ Columbus Crew – 1pm NBCSN: The Crew don’t make it on to national TV a lot even though they have a quality club. This will be the MLS game of the week for sure.
