Today in Sports: 4/9/17 Preview

The Masters:

Sunday’s final round at The Masters should be must-see TV. Will this finally be the major that puts Sergio Garcia over the hump? He’s been one of the world’s best golfers for years but hasn’t been able to shake the major curse. Rickie Fowler and Jordan Spieth are hot on his heels after both posted back-to-back solid rounds. Sunday’s action should be full of high-pressure moments, and we’ll all be on the edge of our seats wondering who will crack under the pressure.

 

NBA:

Cleveland Cavaliers at Atlanta Hawks (NBATV): This Eastern Conference battle between the Cavaliers and Hawks has major playoff implications. The Cavaliers are currently in first place with a half game lead over the Boston Celtics. The Hawks are in fifth place with a half game lead over the sixth seeded Milwaukee Bucks. With both teams’ recent struggles, the Hawks and Cavaliers want to get some momentum heading into the postseason.

Oklahoma City Thunder at Denver Nuggets: This game is extremely important for the Denver Nuggets. The Thunder already clinched the sixth seed in the Western Conference and will face the third seeded Houston Rockets in the first round of the playoffs. Russell Westbrook is going for his record breaking 42nd triple-double this season against a Nuggets team that needs to win. The Nuggets are in ninth place in the Western Conference with three games left on their schedule. They are 1.5 games behind the eighth seeded Portland Trail Blazers. If the Nuggets lose this game, they can kiss their playoff dreams goodbye.
