Podcast: Warriors Make NBA Finals, Blackhawks, Rangers Force Game 7’s (05-28-15)

May 28th, 2015

Despite battling scary head injuries, both Klay Thompson and Steph Curry lead the Golden State Warriors to a clinching Game 5 win and the Warriors first trip to the NBA Finals since 1975.  Dave looks at how the Warriors' strong shooting and roster depth put them into a resounding series win against the Rockets and James Harden's efforts.   What was lacking from the rest of the Rockets, Dwight Howard, Trevor Ariza, and the others?   We then look ahead to this year's NBA Finals between the Warriors and the LeBron James led Cleveland Cavaliers, plus we look at the NHL Stanley Cup Conference Final Game 7's in Hour 2.  The Blackhawks force the Ducks into a Game 7 in Anaheim, and the Rangers force the Tampa Bay Lightning into a Game 7 up in New York.   A most epic, impressive, exciting series so far for the West Final between the Hawks and Ducks... what were the best moments of a spectacular 2015 West Final in the NHL?   Game 4 goes into Double OT, Game 5 goes into single OT after the Blackhawks improbably tied it up down two with just 2 minutes left, only to lose to the Ducks in the OT.   Game 6 showed mettle from the Blackhawks who responded greatly with big goals from Andrew Shaw and Marian Hossa to force the winner take all Game 7.  How about Derek Brassard scoring a hat trick in a wacky 3rd period for the Rangers leading NY to a blowout 7-3 win in Tampa Bay?  All this and more as we cover a big week in sports -- we may hear from the Junk Man on the road with his food truck tour plus much more from MLB on a most action packed DITCOW.
