How good is US Sport. LeBron yesterday – please. Here’s Friday’s US sport mail from the trading floor.
- Unpopular pick this may be with Boston playing away from home and Milwaukee being on the brink of playoff death. However, Marcus Smart is back in the team and this is a huge boost to the Celtics lineup. Like last game, they were simply too much for the Bucks. Smart provides incredible defense to this team and we can never underestimate a great tactician coach in Brad Stevens who has seemed to be able overcome enormous challenges this season. Boston should take the win here and the series.
- Despite having a solid start to the season with a W-L 3-1, the numbers in his stats can be deceiving. Junis is a ‘pitch to contact’ sort of pitcher, generally meaning most of his pitches have made contact with hitters’ bats. He has been lucky so far that they have been ground balls or falling in short in the air to fielders. This is simply unsustainable and at one point, those hits will turn into runs or even home runs. Chicago White Sox’s lineup has some powerful hitters in there that could get the job done here.
