The Best In Sports In 7 Days

Doctor S sez: Less than three months until college football starts. That's why we call these the dead days.

Thursday, April 10
NBA basketball, Los Angeles Lakers at Boston (8 p.m., Ch. 16): Here we are at Game 4 of the finals and it's already looking like a classic.

Friday, April 11
NHL hockey, Philadelphia at Chicago (7 p.m., Ch. 3): An appropriately apocalyptic Game 7 battle between the Flyers and Blackhawks for Lord Stanley's Cup would be a great way to start the summer.

Saturday, April 12
World Cup soccer, United States vs. England (1 p.m., Ch. 16): The Americans open World Cup in South Africa against the old country's team. A U.S. victory would be revolutionary. ... PDL soccer, Mississippi at Baton Rouge (7 p.m., Baton Rouge, La.): The Brilla are still unbeaten going into a showdown with Capitals in Red Stick.

Sunday, April 13
NBA basketball, Los Angeles Lakers at Boston (7 p.m., Ch. 16): Will the Lakers or the Celtics
clinch another NBA title tonight? Probably not.

Monday, April 14
Southern League baseball, Chattanooga at Mississippi (7:05 p.m., Pearl, 103.9 FM): The M-Braves wrap up their series with the Smokies at this home stand.

Tuesday, April 15
NBA basketball, Boston at Los Angeles Lakers (8 p.m., Ch. 16): Unless the Celtics or Lakers get really hot, the finals will shift back to LaLa Land for Game 6.

Wednesday, April 16
Southern League baseball, Mississippi at Carolina (6:15 p.m., Zebulon, N.C., 103.9 FM): The M-Braves open a five-game series against the Mudcats. That is a long, long bus ride.

The Slate is compiled by Doctor S, who will happily accept a free drink—unless it's a Zima.
