Basketball

On February 19, 2017, the NBA All-Star Game took place in New Orleans. The score was a resounding 192-182, with the West winning. The West have won the All-Star game for the past three years (2015, 2016, & 2017). The MVP (most valuable player) was Anthony Davis. He scored an impressive 52 points while in New Orleans.

The top teams in the Western conference in early March 2017 were the Golden State Warriors, San Antonio Spurs, and the Houston Rockets. Eastern conference teams were the Cleveland Cavaliers, the Boston Celtics, and then, our home team, the Washington Wizards. As of mid March, these teams were still leading their conference from March 8. Wow! We’ll see how the playoffs in April go…

English Premiere League

As of March 8, 2017 Chelsea was winning with 60 points. The other teams still had a chance of catching up. Coming up behind Chelsea was Manchester City with 52 points, so they were only 8 points behind. Tottenham was extremely close to catching Manchester City in third place with 50 points. No team could feel comfortable with such close numbers…

As of March 15, 2017, the top three teams in the English Premiere League were Chelsea with 66 points, Tottenham with 56 points, and Manchester City also with 56 points. (The only reason why Tottenham was then in second over Manchester City was because Manchester City had lost more games than Tottenham.)

Hockey:

March top three standings for the NHL Eastern conference:

  1. The Washington Capitals
  2. The Pittsburgh Penguins
  3. The Columbus Blue Jackets

March top three teams in the NHL Western conference:

  1. The Minnesota Wild
  2. The Chicago Blackhawks
  3. The San Jose Sharks

Bets? The Pittsburgh Penguins have made it into the playoffs for the past eleven years. They are hoping to keep that up for the Stanley Cup…
