Quick Tuggs: What To Watch For On Fathers Day…Phils/NBA Finals

Phillies at Blue Jays

The Phils and Blue Jays play their series finale today at 1:07pm. The Phillies will try to salvage the series with a win today after losing the past two games to Toronto. In a season full of disappointments yesterday’s loss hurt, which is saying something. Kyle Kendrick (2-6) will take the mound today who is as capable of easing our pain as sandpaper on a sun burn. He is opposed by Brett Cecil who is making his first big league start this season. Cecil was called up after Kyle Drabek was placed on the disabled list with an elbow injury. So we will see which one of these Double-A talents will prevail.

Thunder at Heat

Game three of the NBA Finals starts tonight at 8:00 pm in Miami. The Heat did their job in Oklahoma City winning a game and taking away home court advantage. The next three games are in Miami and D-Wade said the Heat needs to do everything they can to avoid returning to OKC. Wade bounced back from a poor performance in game 1 scoring 24 points in game 2. Russell Westbrook has heard a lot of criticism after game 2 despite posting 27 points 8 boards and 7 assists. Magic Johnson called it one of the worst performances he had seen from a point guard in the finals. Westbrook’s aggressive style of play is a double edge sword which is the source of both the praise and criticism he receives. LeBron James and Kevin Durant look to compound on their stellar performances in the first two games. Durant put up 36 points in game 1 and 32 in game 2 while LeBron posted 30 in game 1 and 32 in game 2. OKC needs to get off to a better start then they did in game 2 going down 18-2 in the first quarter. I think OKC gets off to a better start in game 3 keeping it close through 3 quarters and then Durant takes over in the fourth. The dude is a killer and I think he carries the Thunder to a 2-1 series lead.
