THE 2016 NFL DRAFT

The 2016 NFL Draft starts today and runs through Saturday out in Chicago. There ought to be no surprise at the top of the draft, when the Rams are expected to draft to take Cal quarterback Jared Goff with the No. 1 pick, with the Eagles to follow by selecting North Dakota State quarterback Carson Wentz at No. 2. And then the drama begins, with the rest of the first round unfolding throughout the remainder of the evening. 

THE NBA PLAYOFF PICTURE

The drama of the playoffs continue as another team punches their ticket into the second round while others take surprising leads going into Game 6's of the first round.

The Curry-less Warriors handed the Rockets an early exit from the playoffs with their 113-81 victory on last night. No Curry? No problem. The Warriors did not look out of sync at all as Klay Thompson lead the team with 27 points and a ton of three pointers. The Clippers drop another one at home as the the Trailblazers take Game 5 108-98 . The backcourt of Damian Lillard and CJ Mccollum was no match for the beat and limping Clippers. Things got controversial in the Game 6 of the Hornets and Heat series. A contested shot put up by Dwayne Wade, that could've tied the game, was not called by the officials and is argued the reason the Hornets are up 3-2 in the series. The Hornets were able to sneak one in Miami as the series shifts back to Charlotte on Friday for Game 6.
