The NBA’s most valuable player Stephen Curry was not available for round one of the NBA playoffs but that did not stop the Golden State Warriors from making easy-work of Houston Rockets in round one of this year’s NBA playoffs.

Golden State defeated the Rockets by a convincing score of 114-81 in game 5 of their first-round series last night and thus advanced to round 2 of the 2016 NBA Playoffs.

The Warriors will now play the Portland Trail Blazers, who moved on to the second-round of the NBA Playoffs by defeating the Los Angeles Clippers.

Stephen Curry is not expected to be available until game five of the second-round series with the Trail Blazers, so it will be interesting to see how the Warriors handle the first four games.

Who do you think wins the Portland vs. Golden State series?

Shogun Rua vs. Rashad Evans to headline UFC on FOX 19

A fight between two former UFC light heavyweight champions will headline April’s ‘UFC on FOX 19’ event, as UFC officials recently announced that Rashad Evans (19-4-1 MMA) has agreed to fight Mauricio “Shogun” Rua (23-10 MMA) in the evenings main event.

Rua and Evans were slated to fight four years ago at UFC 128, but a knee injury forced “Sugar” to withdraw from the proposed matchup.

Evans returned from a near two-year layoff at UFC 192 but unfortunately suffered a decision loss at the hands of Ryan Bader.

Meanwhile, Shogun was most recently seen in action at August’s UFC 190 event in Brazil, where he scored a decision victory over Antonio Rogerio Nogueira.

Since losing his UFC title to Jon Jones in March of 2011, Rua has struggled to find consistent success, going just 4-5 in his past 9 bouts.

Who do you think will win this battle of former champs?
