Let’s watch some sports things

NBA: Washington Wizards at Denver Nuggets Isaiah J. Downing-USA TODAY Sports

Use this as an open thread to enjoy tonight’s NBA Playoffs!

(5) Atlanta Hawks* at (4) Scott Brooks | Game 2

When: Wednesday, 4 PM PT

Where: Verizon Center

TV: NBA TV

* The Hawks have no former Kings, and no coaches or assistants with any ties to the Kings. As such, they are probably doomed to lose in the first round.

(6) Oklahoma City Thunder* at (3) Bobby Brown | Game 2

When: Wednesday, 5 PM PT

Where: Toyota Center

TV: TNT

* The Thunder have no former Kings, and no coaches or assistants with any ties to the Kings. As such, they are probably doomed to lose in the first round. Teams need to understand the importance of players with a winning pedigree.

(8) Portland Trail Blazers* at (1) Matt Barnes** | Game 2

When: Wednesday, 7:30 PM PT

Where: Oracle Arena

TV: TNT

* The Blazers have no former Kings, and no coaches or assistants with any ties to the Kings. As such, they are probably doomed to lose in the first round. Teams need to understand the importance of players with a winning pedigree. This is why the Blazers are such huge underdogs.

** Ah screw it, no more addressing these teams by their former Kings on the roster.
