Felger & Mazz: May 2, 2013
Felger and Massarotti opened the day discussing the Boston Celtics and last night’s 92-86 Game 5 win over the Knicks in New York. The Knicks still have the 3-2 series lead. The series returns to Boston on Friday night. How much pressure are the C’s putting on the Knicks? Did the Knicks put unnecessary pressure on themselves? Should fans be buying back into the Celtics? At the end of the game last night, Jordan Crawford had some comments for Carmelo Anthony. How poorly timed were Crawford’s comments?
In Hour 2, Felger and Mazz talked about the Boston Bruins and last night’s start to the playoffs. The B’s beat the Toronto Maple Leafs 4-1 to take a 1-0 series lead. What can Bruins fans take from the Game 1 win? The series continues Saturday night. The Boston Red Sox played their series finale against the Toronto Blue Jays last night. The Sox beat the Jays 10-1, splitting the two-game series. With the win last night, Clay Buchholz improved his record to 6-0. When was the last time a Red Sox pitcher was off to such a hot start?
During Hour 3 of Felger and Massarotti, the guys continued to talk about the Boston Celtics, their series against the Knicks, and Kevin Garnett’s performance in Game 5. Is there any chance the Celtics are the first team to come back from being down 3-0 in a playoff series? Last night, Phil Kessel was a no-show for the Maple Leafs against the Bruins. Will Kessel ever be a factor against the Bruins? Will Andrew Ference be disciplined for his elbow to head of Mikhail Grabovski?
In the fourth and final hour, Felger and Mazz discussed Boston’s trifecta sports night. All three Boston teams walked away with wins last night. The Bruins beat the Maple Leafs 4-1 in the series opener. The Celtics force a Game 6 with their 92-86 Game 5 win over the Knicks and the Red Sox crushed the Blue Jays 10-1.
