[PODCAST] Sportsbash ON DEMAND Tuesday May 15 2012
Did you miss the Sports Bash or do you just want to listen to it again?
The Sports Bash ON DEMAND gives you the chance to go back and hear what you missed. Its the Sports Bash with Mike Gill and Todd Ranck.
Here is today’s show: Tuesday May 16th, 2012.
Sixers take Game 2
Mike Gill opens up the show today saying "we have a series!" However, he still sets the percentages at 55/45 in favor of the Boston Celtics. Todd Ranck has only moved the Sixers percentages up to 25 percent. They both talked about the controversial offensive foul called on Celtics Kevin Garnett last night. Todd thinks the players should decide the games and Mike Gill thinks that if its a foul in the first half, its a foul in the 4th quarter.
Artest vs. Harden II
Arguments ensue about last night Lakers vs. Thunder Game 1 where a foul was called on Ron Artest after he got tangled up with Thunder G James Harden. Now Mike and Todd just dont see eye-to-eye on anything involving Metta World Peace so it always makes for great debate!
Tom Moore talks Game 2
Sixers beat writer, Tom Moore, called in and gave his thoughts on Game 2. He likes the Sixers chances right now because he knows the rest of the games this series will be close. He also gave a stat on Lavoy Allen compared to Paul Pierce which you could have never predicted. Lavoy Allen played 30 minutes last night and now expects him to play that amount for the rest of the series. Tom Moore covers the Sixers for Calkins Media and phillyburbs.com. Follow him on Twitter.

Chris Forsberg talks Sixers vs. Celtics
Chris Forsberg of ESPN Boston called in and talked about the series. Right away he said Boston was off their game last night doing things they dont typically do. He said a lot of people in Boston now realize this could be a series. Forsberg said the Celtics have "another level," but only when Rajon Rondo plays like Rajon Rondo. They are too hard to predict sometimes. Chris Forsberg covers the Celtics for ESPN Boston and ESPNBoston.com. You can follow Chris Forsberg on Twitter.
