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.
