As tends to be the case in these NBA playoffs, the Eastern Conference game tonight, between the Raptors and the Magic, is so skipable to sports fans that it might as well be a hockey game. (Sorry!) The Western Conference drama is engulfing it all.

The early game is Dallas at New Orleans, and man, if this thing ends up being a sweep or something close to it, well, that would be a bad time to apply for a blog credential, we'll say that.


And then, right afterwards, a rematch — hell, this time of year, they're ALL rematches! — of that Game One madness between the Suns and the Spurs. If you can stay up that late — and unless Hillary wins it running away, we won't have any projected winner by that time — it's a lot more interesting that what you'll be struggling through tomorrow morning as a result will be.
