The NBA Conference Finals began on May 13th, and the final four teams have played seven games total to date. In the East the Cleveland Cavaliers trail the Boston Celtics two games to one and the in the West, the Golden State Warriors lead the Houston Rockets two games to one.

Cleveland dropped their first two games in Boston but after home court shifted back to Cleveland the Cavs managed to tie up the series, riding on a wave of redemption heading into game five in Boston.

The Warriors split wins at home with the Rockets before heading to Houston, and winning their first game on the road in their best of seven. Game five of the series in the West is scheduled for Tuesday night (after the time of this writing). Should the Cavaliers manage to outlast the Celtics and the Warriors, Houston, NBA fans will get a repeat championship series between last year’s final two. Boston fans, however, are poised to send their team to the championship losing to the Cavs four games to one in last year’s Conference finals. The Rockets made it to the Conference Semi Finals last year before being ousted by the San Antonio Spurs. So while many are expecting a repeat championship match-up between Cleveland and Golden State, the Celtics are looking to upset that reunion.

In other sports the Colorado Rapids are still searching for a win after Saturday’s shut-out loss to New York FC at Yankee Stadium. The Rapids were outshot and recorded a 34 percent time of possession. With Saturday’s loss the Rapids have now lost five in a row, and now look to a productive training week before hosting the Portland Timbers on Saturday evening. The Rapids have yet to win a road game this season and have only won two home games. Fans are hopeful that this Memorial weekend’s game will bring the Rapids their third win of the season.

The Colorado Rockies begin a three-game series with the Dodgers this week in L.A. and Monday afternoon the Rockies stole the top spot in the National League West with their win over the Dodgers. Colorado is now a half game ahead of the Arizona Diamondbacks with two more games with the Dodgers (game two scheduled for the evening of this writing). Game three will be Wednesday at Dodgers Stadium, 8:10 p.m. The Rockies will return home to host the Cincinnati Reds this Friday at Coors Field in a three-game series.
