May 7, 1995. Madison Square Garden in New York. Reggie Miller torches the NY Knicks with 8 points in 9 seconds. The Indiana Pacers defeat the Knicks 107-105. Ah, playoff basketball right?

Last night, the defending Champions Denver Nuggets erupt for 8 points in 20 seconds right before halftime to stretch a 7 point lead to 15 and the Minnesota Timberwolves never recovered losing Game 4 and the series is now tied 2-2. I think the series might be Denver’s too!

When the smoke clears, we’ll probably realize Anthony Edwards is a legit superstar, but the T- Wolves are not Ready-for-Primetime just yet!

Tomorrow night on an Indian Reservation in Connecticut Caitlin Clark will officially begin her WNBA career. Clark and the Indiana Fever face the Connecticut Sun at the Mohegan Sun Arena.

In terms of context, the University of Connecticut is close by in Storrs; there are more cows than people.

But UConn is, and has been been, a sheer Basketball hotbed for a quarter century. The UConn men have won back-to-back National Championships.
And the Caitlin Clark debut has the locals scratching their heads.
If it’s big and it’s Basketball it has to be UConn…. But it’s not!

The Media List is dotted with National and International outlets — there is a Media “Waiting List”- and ESPN is airing the game as the World-wide Leader, right? Right!

The arena seats a little over 10,000 and they are creating a “ Standing Room Only “ and tickets you can actually sit in are off-the-charts.

Nike has its top executives in town (see Tiger Woods 1997 Masters for comparison.) In a word. Caitlin Clark in Gold.
