Rays Win Series Against Yankees, Knicks defeats Bulls
Rays Win Series Against Yankees
The Rays sweep the Yankees and handled New York their first 0-3 start since 1998 (the same year NY went on to win the World Series). The latest win came on Sunday when Derek Jeter’s team fell by 3-0, though Joe Girardi, the manager for the team, spoke on the situation, mentioning that “At times, it seems magnified when it’s the beginning of the year. We’ve all been through three-game losing streaks. This is a resilient club. We’ll be fine.”
When it comes to Tampa Bay, Jeremy Hellickson had an outstanding night as he limited Mark Texeira, Nick Swisher And A-Rod to doubles. And on the win, the 2011 American League Rookie of the Year, who was celebrating his 25th birthday, said that “That was a good present. It’s always nice to get off to a good start against these guys in our division. We came out and played hard and got three good wins.”
Knicks defeats Bulls
Carmelo Anthony not only finished with a season-high 43 points, but he also scored what it was probably his best shot so far this year: a three-pointer that gave the Knicks a 100-99 overtime win to the Bulls. The game was important for Chicago as it marked the return of Derrick Rose (who finished the game with 29 points) after almost a month out of courts due to injuries. The teams will meet one more time on Tuesday at the United Center, but they might get to play again before the season is over if the Bulls and the Knicks qualify to the NBA playoffs as a first and eight seeds respectively.
Celtics defeats Pacers
Ray Allen entered the Celtics game vs the Pacers from the bench (it is just the 6th time in the career of the player that he is not a starter), as the emergence of Avery Bradley has forced Doc Rivers to leave the Hall of Famer benched. But Allen, like the pro he is, swallowed his pride and again sacrificed for his team, coming up with 3 three-point shots during the fourth quarter which proved to be vital for the 86-72 win from Boston over Indiana.
Another player that had a great night yesterday was Greg Stiemsma, who tied a career-high 6 blocked shots. And on his good performance, the player mentioned that “When you block shots it has an immediate impact. If you get one or two early ones, later on they’ll second guess a little bit. If I can alter a shot, that’s what I’m out there for, too.”
