Your morning roundup for May 18, the day your bros realized they shouldn't have done that, man. Above: Chris Perez makes his case to be the real-life Kenny Powers. Video via The Dugout Sports Show.
What we watched: Playoff fireworks, a whole night of 'em, in basketball and hockey. The home teams—Dallas and Boston—both won their games, though neither team delivered the lopsided win we might have anticipated, at points. Boston led 6-3, but won 6-5. Dallas had a 16-point lead that was down to six with a minute left.
The games were nearly identical, but their heroes weren't. Dirk, he of that awkward and lethal jump shot and the legacy of sustained greatness overshadowed by Kobe's fist-pumping, had a bonkers shooting night: 12 of 15 from the floor, 24 of 24 from the line, 48 points without attempting a three. A few other Mavs scored, but maybe they didn't need to—Dirk hit shots with Serge Ibaka's hand shielding him from everything.
