 Sports News 5/7/16

This week in sports news, baseball, basketball, and hockey are all surging right now. In baseball, the Cubs are the best team in the league, shooting off to a 22-6 start to the young year. Ben Zobrist has been the headline of the MLB right now by hitting 6 home runs in the last 5 games. He, for sure, has a hot bat right now and has no intentions of stopping. Giancarlo Stanton also is at the front of the pack after hitting his 11th home run of the season on Thursday. He hit an amazing 490 foot shot in Miami, which has been his stomping grounds this year at the plate. He has hit 5 home runs at his home stadium this year, including the absolute bomb he hit the other night. 
NBA playoffs are buzzing right now with the Cavaliers getting ready to close up shop in Atlanta by winning 4 straight in the series. They haven't lost a game yet in the playoffs, and probably won't until they get to the finals. The Warriors' star player, Steph Curry, has been sitting out most of the Western Semi-Finals with a sprained right knee. He was unlikely to play game 4 in Portland as of yesterday, but he should be ready to go in game 5. 
That's all for this week in sports news, see you later!
