Who'll Take the Title? The NBA and Stanley Cup

Ibrahim Abdul-Matin on the Cavs, Magic, Nuggets, Lakers -- and Red Wings

Thursday, May 28, 2009

We're getting into crunch time for both the NBA and the NHL. It's the conference finals for the NBA, with LeBron James and his Cleveland Cavaliers on the brink of elimination; they trail the Orlando Magic 3-1. Meanwhile, in the Western Conference, the Los Angeles Lakers took a 3 - 2 series lead over the Denver Nuggets last night. Over in the National Hockey League, Detroit and Pittsburgh will open the Stanley Cup finals this Saturday in Detroit. For more we turn to The Takeaway's sports contributor Ibrahim Abdul-Matin.
