"Did you know?"

A popular patriotic song in the United States is “America the Beautiful.”

Written as a poem in 1893 by Katharine Lee Bates, a professor of English at Wellesley College in Massachusetts, it was combined with music in 1910 by New Jersey church organist Samuel Ward. The first two stanzas highlight both God’s blessings on this unique nation as well as its imperfections.

America! America!
God shed his grace on thee
And crown thy good with brotherhood
From sea to shining sea! …

America! America!
God mend thine every flaw,
Confirm thy soul in self-control,
Thy liberty in law!

Thanks to the four-year, $140 million extension, Wilson, who has been one of the NFL's best players since his rookie season, is now tied contractually to Seattle through the 2023 season. Thanks to a no-trade clause that helped persuade the quarterback to finalize the agreement, the odds have increased dramatically that Wilson will spend at least the bulk of his career in Seattle.

Western Conference Semfinals


April 29


DEN leads 1-0

 Nuggets show poise, growth in Game 1 win against Blazers

Jamal Murray, Nikola Jokic deliver when it matters in West semifinals opener 

nba playoffs yes GIF by NBA
 DENVER -- It’s not the altitude.

That’s the easy answer for why the Denver Nuggets had the best home record during the regular season.

The real culprit is the waves and waves of talent, size and versatility these young Nuggets are bringing to the Western Conference semfinals.

They are by far the youngest group still alive in the 2019 playoffs. And despite coach Mike Malone’s refusal to use that “young” tag as a descriptor for his team, they have only one player – veteran power forward Paul Millsap -- who had ever set foot in this round of the playoffs prior to Monday night’s 121-113 Game 1 win against the Portland Trail Blazers at Pepsi Center.

It is no surprise, then, that Millsap was the focus for the Nuggets early on. He made four of his first five shots and finished the first quarter with 10 points, setting the tone for the rest of the Nuggets.

“We’ve been playing inside-out all year,” Millsap said. “That’s where our strength comes from. For us to be effective, we’ve got to establish something down low inside-out. I think when we do that and start games off like that, guys start hitting shots and the rhythm is there. It’s up to us to set the tone.”

“We just adjusted,” Murray said. “Joker got into the middle of the paint and was able to make some plays. Gary [Harris] hit some big shots and ‘Sap was great as well. We have a lot of weapons and the ball was moving for us early.”

“They play faster and better at home,” Lillard said after his 39-point, six-assist effort Monday night.

“It’s great, it’s part of the goal, you know?” Harris said, as his amazing reverse layup and chase down block on Lillard late serving as two of Game 1’s best plays. “One win down, we’ve got thee more to go. We are not satisfied. We have to come in, locked in, and ready to play Game 2 [Wednesday night], because if we lose Game 2 this one doesn’t really matter like that.”

“He just picks his spots,” Murray said of Jokic’s evolution. “He doesn’t force many plays, he sees the open man, but he’s such a willing passer. He also gets his teammates involved and sometimes when has an easy shot, he doesn’t take it. But that hasn’t been the case, especially in games where we were down 2-1 against San Antonio. He was just being aggressive, Game 7, being aggressive. I think he’s found his mission when he has to go the rack and when he has to defer and pass it.”

 Eastern Conference Semifinals


April 29


Series tied 1-1

Philadelphia 76ers Logo PHI 94 - 89 TOR Toronto Raptors Logo

 Sixers Hold Off Raptors To Even Series

If Game 1 of the Eastern Conference semifinals announced Kawhi Leonard is at full strength, Monday’s matchup against the Sixers served as a rock-solid confirmation. The former Finals MVP erupted once again for 35 points and seven rebounds, shooting 13-24 from the field. Yet even Super-Kawhi couldn’t save Toronto in Game 2 as Philadelphia tied the series at one game apiece in a 94-89 win at Scotiabank Arena. The Raptors supporting cast will shoulder the blame.It’s not as though the Sixers’ four-headed monster overwhelmed Toronto’s defense in Game 2. Marc Gasol stonewalled Joel Embiid to 2-7 shooting and six turnovers. Tobias Harris ended the evening with nine points on 11 shots. Jimmy Butler’s 30 points saved Philly from a crushing comeback, draining a triple to put the Sixers up 88-81 with 2:11 to play. Yet even with Butler’s big night, locking down three of Philly’s four scorers represents a quality night at the office. Toronto’s defense in Game 2 largely mirrored its Game 1 performance, especially against Embiid. The effort should have been enough for a 2–0 series edge heading back to PhillyAn elongated brick fest doomed the Raptors on Monday night. Non-Leonard players shot just 29% from the field and 26% from three. Pascal Siakam missed five of seven triples. Marc Gasol and Kyle Lowry combined to make 7-23 attempts. Toronto’s bench (an expected edge in this series) hemorrhaged points at an alarming rate, with Fred VanVleet finishing the evening minus-18 in 18 minutes. Serge Ibaka didn’t fare much better at minus-12. Perhaps this was the James Ennis game, after all.We shouldn’t bury the Raptors supporting cast after one shoddy shooting night, yet the concerns regarding their offensive production should be noted. Gasol is more valuable as a defensive linchpin than anything else at this point in his career. He won’t lose an inch banging against Embiid and his first step is far less deadly as his footspeed deteriorates. Lowry’s offensive output has slipped this year—in part due to a lower usage rate—and he continues to struggle from three. It won’t be the old heads that carry Toronto to the Finals.Siakam’s production remains paramount north of the border. He’s a ideal wing partner with Leonard on a good night, an elite slasher, emerging three-point shooter and transition menace. The Siakam spin should be patented at this point. Yet his limitations were exposed on Monday. He still only made one three per game in 2018-19, one year after making just 0.4 per game at 22% last year. His evolution should continue into next year, though for these playoffs, teams will continue to sag off him severely. He’ll need to make a couple of triples each night to keep defenses honest. He went 9-25 from the floor on Monday and 2-7 from three. Another option around Leonard wilted in a winnable contest.Leonard could very well be the best player in the Eastern Conference. He is back to his pre-Zaza Pachulia peak, perhaps the league’s most complete two-way force. Yet he can’t carry Toronto past Philadelphia’s All-Star quartet alone. The Raptors supporting cast should be sufficient for a Finals run. They need to show up in Philadelphia.

Last season’s best NBA playoff series bar none was the epic 7-game battle between the Golden State Warriors and Houston Rockets. It was rich in narrative reinforcement and narrative destruction. It had more Xs and Os drama than a basketball nerd could ever reasonably wish for. It had personality and personalities. It had drama. It had rises and collapses (well, one really big collapse). It had it all.

Are we ready for the sequel? Because it’s here. Like, now.

  Al Horford sure looks like Giannis Antetokounmpo’s kryptonite

Horford shut Antetokounmpo down in Game 1. Is this what we expect for the entire series?

Jeff Hanisch-USA TODAY Sports

Giannis Antetokounmpo may have been the best player on the floor, but Al Horford was the Most Valuable Player in Boston’s shocking 112-90 playoff win in Game 1 on Sunday. Horford absolutely shut Antetokounmpo down. If the Greek Freak is the NBA’s Superman, Horford, at least for one game, was his kryptonite.

Horford final tally was three blocks against the Bucks on Sunday. But all of them came against Antetokounmpo, including one devastating sequence where Horford blocked Antetokounmpo twice on the same possession. The second of the two blocks may have been the most disrespectful block we’ve ever seen on the MVP candidate. It should have counted as two rejections by itself.

Milwaukee Bucks Basketball GIF by NBA
Not on Al Horford's watch! #Celtics

 Here’s another angle, in slower motion:

Al Horford met Giannis at the rim TWICE

 Antetokounmpo earns his name as one of the most dominant players in the NBA this season because he appropriately used his size and strength to dominate opposing defenses. But he was unable to use that brute force to bully Boston’s trio of front court defenders: Horford, Marcus Morris and Aron Baynes. Antetokounmpo shot just 7-of-21 from the field. Horford’s consistent defense — both on-the-ball and helping from the weak side — set the tone from the beginning of the game.

 Shorthanded Seattle Sounders fight to gritty 1-1 draw with LAFC

Brad Smith vs. LAFC 2019-04-28
USA Today Sports
Ari Liljenwall SoundersFC.com
SEATTLE — The Seattle Sounders overcame a pair of red cards, eventually salvaging a 1-1 draw with LAFC at CenturyLink Field in a Western Conference clash on Sunday.

Seattle played with 10 men for 72 minutes of the contest following Cristian Roldan’s red card in the 18th minute and part of second-half stoppage time after defender Kelvin Leerdam was also sent off. Seattle warded off a barrage of second-half pressure from the visitors with a mammoth defensive effort to escape with the point.

Seattle moves to 5-1-3, with 18 points through nine matches.

Jordan Morris opened the scoring just 45 seconds after kickoff for Seattle, picking off a wayward back pass, charging in on goal and slotting home a finish to the far post past ex-teammate Tyler Miller. The goal was the second-fastest in club history.

 @JmoSmooth13! In the opening minute, Morris bags his fourth goal of the season #SEAvLAFC

 The visitors struck back just three minutes later, though, after Carlos Vela cashed home a point-blank tally off a vicious counterattack, leveling the affair at a goal apiece before five minutes had elapsed.

The Sounders were dealt a huge blow in the 18th minute when referee Ted Unkel issued Roldan a straight red for making contact with the face of an opponent following a dust-up between the sides near midfield. A massive defensive effort in the second half kept the contest at 1-1, with the Sounders earning a point despite finishing with nine men after Leerdam was sent off for denying a goalscoring opportunity in stoppage time.


The fact that the Sounders were also missing strikers Raul Ruidíaz (heel contusion) and Will Bruin (hamstring strain), midfielder Víctor Rodríguez (concussion), star center back Chad Marshall (knee inflammation), defensive midfielder Gustav Svensson (hamstring strain) and left back Nouhou (ankle sprain) makes that second-half stand all the more remarkable. Without those faces plus Roldan, it was up to the depth players to step up, with Jordy Delem playing all 90 minutes, and Alex Roldan, Saad Abdul-Salaam and Henry Wingo all taking shifts.

 Full Time The Sounders and LAFC split the points.

SEATTLE — The Seattle Sounders fell down 2-0 but staged a second-half comeback, eventually drawing the San Jose Earthquakes 2-2 in a midweek Western Conference clash between the sides at CenturyLink Field on Wednesday.

Shea Salinas scored twice for San Jose, while Kelvin Leerdam and Harry Shipp each scored for Seattle two minutes apart. The Sounders move to 5-1-2 with 17 points from their first eight matches of 2019.

The visitors struck first in the 34th minute courtesy of Salinas, who finished a counterattack by rounding Leerdam and slotting home a difficult finish past goalkeeper Stefan Frei. He then struck again eight minutes into the second half on an easy tap-in finish off a feed from Cristian Espinoza to double San Jose’s lead.

The Sounders struck back in the 65th minute, however, as Leerdam got on the end of a Nicolás Lodeiro corner kick that was redirected by Kim Kee-hee, cutting the deficit to 2-1. Shipp then leveled the proceedings at 2-2 in dramatic fashion just two minutes later, cashing home a nifty redirected finish of his own off another feed from Lodeiro, tying the contest with 25 minutes left.

Leerdam’s tally awoke the CenturyLink Field crowd and made for a frenetic final 25 minutes. The energy shifted even higher after Shipp’s leveler with each side generating chances in a back-and-forth finish that included a couple of highlight-reel saves from Frei.All in.
