Hello all, Kiley Kmiec from Next Impulse Sports here. still starting to get a hang of this thing, I think. Here's some background: I am a big fan of surfing, Chicago and happy hours. Let's get into some Weekend Hot Clicks, shall we? You can follow me on Twitter HERE.

Cavs Take 2-0 Lead In Series

The Atlanta Hawks fell to the Cleveland Cavaliers 94-82 in Game 2 of the Eastern Conference finals. During the game, LeBron almost ran into a pregnant lady sitting courtside and he told her jokingly "to put on a do not disturb shirt or something.” Kent Bazemore shoved and talked a little trash to LeBron James in the first quarter. After the game, TNT’s Charles Barkley walked into the media room and called a sweep, letting the media know they wouldn’t be returning to Atlanta this season. The Hawks' Kent Bazemore disagrees with Charles Barkley.

Russell Westbrook Singing Taylor Swift

Russell Westbrook took to Instagram to show off his pipes and sing along to Taylor Swift's latest single "Bad Blood." The only regrettable aspect about any of this is that this is but a snippet and Westbrook didn’t have enough time to give a full rendition of Swift’s banger. Taylor caught wind of the song and let Russ know that he made her night.


BAD BLOOD!!!! @taylorswift .. Banger!!!!!

A MLB Standoff of Epic Proportions

From the anthem until Max Scherzer throws the first pitch, Aaron Harang and Aaron Barrett stared each other down in goofy gear just waiting for the first person to crack. Even after the umpire told them to leave the field, neither was player budged. Check out who won the standoff here. 

Drake, The Softball Player

Drake showed off his swing prior to a celebrity softball game in Houston, and it didn't look too shabby.
