Listen: Duke, Celtics And LA Lakers discussed on WEEI at Night
"All right. Welcome back in to the program here on nation radio got about twenty minutes remaining in the show. And if you're new to the show, this is a segment we do each and every night at this time, it's called in case you missed it where we rapid fire through the day's biggest stories and there's a couple. Always as well. And here we go. In case you missed it. Now power hour. Let's start with that. So I'm watching the game last night there in Louisville. The take on the sixteenth ranked Louisville cardinals and Duke is getting absolutely pummeled. So I flip off the game. A couple of minutes later, I go on Twitter and see everyone talking about Duke making this comeback. And I thought what what I miss this. Because I was watching the warriors take on the jazz last night. So I change the channel and I had to go back to the Duke game. Biggest Duke was making a comeback Duke trail by twenty three with nine thirty left in the game. They outscore Louisville thirty five to ten the rest of the way. Here's a little bit of how it sounded Jones. Defending Cunningham trying to drive on science and McMahon, cutting reverse layup blocked by sei aunt for Jones has it for two chance to tie with a three. Between the legs. How long was that three point shot several beyond the arcade sixty nine all Duke radio with the call. How 'bout that? Cam radish. Twenty two points now has four straight games with a four point four three pointers made Duke comes storming back and has one of the biggest comebacks ever and answer the NCWA, according to the NC double A, it's the largest deficit ever overcame in the final ten minutes to win a game in regulation. It was duke's second largest second half comeback since nineteen fifty nineteen fifty one when they came back down thirty one against two lane. Remember that game? Bobby nineteen fifty nineteen fifty one season wasn't born. I was not a long way to go about thirty five years earlier forty five years actually got so yeah, what you did last night was historic there. Now seven one this season two games against top twenty five teams. The next best is Kansas at seven and two. And we can't talk Duke without talking about future New York knick. I can only hope Zion Williamson who dropped twenty seven points, twelve rebounds, his six twenty and ten game of the season. And he's ten double double eleven twenty five point game this year extending a Duke freshman record. So yeah, pretty good night for Duke in their comeback win staying with basketball. But this time to the pros the Celtics beat the Sixers again last night this time without Kyrie Irving. Gordon? Hayward had a game high twenty six off the bench for the Boston Celtics his third high scoring game of the season. He made a season high six threes. And how about this death taxes? And the Celtics beating the Sixers. It doesn't matter. How they always find a way to do it. You could pull it a bunch of high school people out there on the court if they're wearing Celtics jerseys, and they're playing the Philadelphia Sixers seventy Sixers. The Celtics are gonna find a way to win the game. And that's what happened again last night. And then after the game Joel Embiid wasn't too happy with the officiating. Although no one. Do I I. Press conference ends. Joel Embiid, grabs the Mike and says, you just heard these rat's expletive some the NBA announced a little while ago that Joel Embiid has been fined twenty five thousand dollars for that comment against the referees after last night's game. So yeah, all in all Celtics once again, even without carrier having find a way to beat the Sixers. They do it again last night in Philly one twelve one zero nine staying with the NBA the Lakers. They stumble again, they lost to the lowly hawks last night a hawks team that is awful L A lost one seventeen thirteen. The Lakers are twenty eight and twenty nine on the year. That's the latest into the season. A LeBron James lead team as a sub five hundred record since LeBron's rookie year in Cleveland. Lebron had twenty eight. Eleven and sixteen in the loss last night. It's fifth triple double of the year and seventy eighth of his career. But after the game LeBron wanted everyone to know that he's going to the all star game. And his team is in take a listen to the broad after the game. A lot more time. Those guys have a lot more time than I will, obviously. Because you know, I'm the broad. I'm an all-star. No one on my team is an all star. That's why we tried to trade the entire starting five and more for Anthony Davis. So yeah, LeBron stay humble, man. Stay humble, we know the Brian will be in the all star game. We'd all the Bronx will be the captain of his respective team in the all star game as well. So the Lakers twenty eight and twenty nine on the year. We'll see what they can do in the post all-star break portion of the schedule staying with the NBA one final NBA note and his canter signed with the Portland trailblazers about this. He had a chance to go to the Lakers, and he chose the trailblazers. Maybe Kevin Durant comments. I've talked about this on the show before the nobody wants to play with the Bridewell and his canter could've played with the Broncos. And if you remember last year NS in the Bronx got into it during a Knicks game. Maybe that's why anastos Portland over the LA Lakers. Just a thought Portland thirty three twenty three tie with the Houston Rockets for fourth in the Western Conference entering the games tonight. So cater leaves the Knicks signs with the Portland Trail, Blazers baseball news. Yonki pitcher CCC bath. Reportedly will have a press conference on Saturday to announce that two thousand nineteen will be as final season in major league baseball CC's been a great Yankee since the Yankees brought them in after the season CC's thirty eight years old last year nine and seven with a three point six ERA. So when he's healthy he still has can go out there. And he knows how to pitch he knows how to get guys out without having to dominate guys with one hundred mile per hour fastball as he did earlier in his career CC has two hundred and forty six career wins. Let's say he wins at least fifteen games this year, which is possible. Sobat may very well have had a hall of fame career when you combine the postseason pedigree is numbers in the clutch. You look at his numbers after his team comes in after after a loss. He's one of the best pitchers in baseball at going out there and giving his team a chance to win be the final year of what will ultimately be possibly a hall of fame career for C Sobat via changing gears. Let's talk football the NFL rescinded a combine invites way likely first round pick today that likely first round pick is Jalen Ferguson. So NFL rules prohibit players who were convicted of a violent crime for from attending the annual scouting combine, and Jalen Ferguson who went to Louisiana tech is considered a first round pick. And by the way, is the NC double A's all time sack leader, he will not be at the scouting. Combine in Indianapolis later this month due to an. An incident that didn't happen. Recently happened is freshman year. Ferguson got into some sort of incident. At a McDonald's. There was a fight at a McDonald's. And because he was convicted at the time of a simple battery charge during his freshman year stemming from this bite at Mickey D's, he will not be at the combine later this month. And the only thing I have to say about that is is in the NFL bit hypocritical. Kareem hunt and Reuben foster recently, just got jobs. So yeah. All right. You'll take this guy away because you got into it. He got into an incident when he was a freshman, but green hunches got signed Ruben foster got signed a couple of months ago. Yeah. So the NFL once again, I'm calling them out little little bit hypocritical there. All right. This might be one of my favorite stories. We have ever done here on espionage in radio. I was so excited when I happened to see this on social media earlier today. So here's the deal. The CFL's Toronto Argos have signed Corey poop Johnson two way contract. Yes. Guys nickname is poop. Corey poop. Johnson johnson. Played twenty five games over the last two years for the Winnipeg blue bomber he spent the off season of twenty seventeen and twenty eighteen with the Atlanta Falcons and the Kansas City Chiefs in the NFL. Poop Johnson played two seasons. At the university of Kentucky after he transferred there from going to a junior college. So this guy is a defensive tackle he played at Kentucky. He's played in the CF bell and his nickname. Is poop Johnson. How did he get the nickname poop? We'll take a listen biggest here is how we got the nickname. Warning, Cory Johnson junior. College defensive tackle says his weight is quote, flexible to ninety nice day, and I'll be three on it. To eighty. Always flex where it goes it goes on his own. So you have like two stakes and two extra meals.."
