Monday's Hot Clicks: Caitlin Ricketts; The NBA disses Dave Chappelle

Monday May 22nd, 2017

Celtics beat Cavs, NBA disses Dave Chappelle

There were about four people in the world who gave Boston a chance against Cleveland, especially playing on the road without Isaiah Thomas, but that's exactly what happened. Avery Bradley's last-second shot made sweet love to the rim before dropping in to give the Celtics a victory. Also of note: The rally towels given to Cavs fans were lame ... Jonas Jerebko was key for Boston, though this was not his finest moment ... J.R. Smith and Kevin Love pulled off the rare NBA flea flicker ... Brad Stevens is really good at out-of-timeout plays ... LeBron James got a little snippy with a reporter following the game ... Amy Schumer and "a fan" seemed to enjoy the action.

12-year-old kicks ass in MMA debut

When I was 12, I spent my free time at the mall or trying to sneak into Fenway Park. Momo Shimuzu of Japan is dominating women twice her age in amateur MMA fights.

Olympic medals falling apart

The Games in Rio were less than a year ago and the medals are already crap.

Lovely Lady of the Day

I spent the last week in 2018 SI Swimsuit castings and met 125 new friends (and SI Swimsuit hopefuls). One of which was Caitlin Ricketts, who is from Houston but somehow has no Texas accent. She is today's LLOD (click for full-size gallery).  

Cheap shot of the year

I don't cover much boxing but you have to see what happened in the Andre Dirrell-Jose Uzcategui match on Saturday. Uzcategui was disqualified for punching Dirrell after the bell to end the eighth round. It was his second late punch of the match. Afterward, Dirrell's uncle (and manager) nailed Uzcategui with a cheap shot to the face. He's now wanted for assault. 

And then a hero comes along

Ever go to a coffee shop and the people at the next table won't shut up? It happened to this guy, only he heard their conversation about finding the "perfect" name for their company and bought the domain to get revenge.  

Orlando Bloom has quite the life

Weird. This never happens with the bartenders when I go out on the town.

Odds & ends

The Rock hosted SNL and this was my favorite skit ... The most iconic home runs in MLB history ... Zaza Pachulia's family was threatened after the Kawhi Leonard injury ... Raise your hand if you thought Jinder Mahal would one day be WWE champ ... I like this story about two Kardashians fighting for Tristan Thompson ... As someone who hates the Knicks, it's enjoyable to watch them run Kristaps Porzingis out of town .... Enjoyed this profile of former FSU safety Myron Rolle, who graduated from med school this week ... An inside look at Chris Cornell's final weeks ...
