>>Bucks Pursuit Of NBA Title Starts At 12:30
(Lake Buena Vista, FL) — The Milwaukee Bucks tip-off their pursuit of an NBA championship at 12:30 this afternoon inside the bubble at Disney’s Wide World of Sports. The Bucks meet eighth-seeded Orlando in the first game of a best-of-seven series. Milwaukee lost five of the eight seeding games, but the team had quickly guaranteed the number one seed in the postseason and had very little to play for the rest of the way. Forward Giannis Antetokounmpo concedes the defense lacked intensity and offensive movement wasn’t as swift. Orlando isn’t expected to put up much of a battle. Milwaukee swept the season series from the Magic, four games to none. Listen to the game starting at Noon today on KFIZ.
>>Burnes Rejoins Brewers Rotation For Start At Minnesota
(Minneapolis, MN) — Hard-throwing right-hander Corbin Burnes rejoins the Milwaukee starting rotation for tonight’s (Tuesday’s) 7:10 p-m game at Target Field in Minneapolis. With a 10-and-10 record, Milwaukee is tied for second place in the National League Central Division, three-and-a-half games behind the Cubs. The Brewers will be trying to extend their three-game winning streak against the Minnesota Twins. Minnesota took two-out-of-three games in a series last week in Miller Park. Burnes has no record so far this season, with an earned run average of three-point-38. He’s given up only eight hits in 16 innings across four games. Listen to tonight’s game at 6:35 on KFIZ.
>>Report: Packers Sign Clark, Move On To Jones, Bakhtiari
(Green Bay, WI) — Signing running back Aaron Jones to a new contract could be the next top priority for Packers general manager Brian Gutekunst. Nose tackle Kenny Clark has a new deal that could keep him in Green Bay for the next five years. The 25-year-old Jones has shown he’s a playmaker, leading the NFL with 19 touchdowns last season. He’s making a little over two million dollars on his current deal. The team’s front office is also said to be working on contracts with players like left tackle David Bakhtiari and cornerback Kevin King. They become free agents next year.
>>Madison Golfer Reaps Big Benefits From Senior Tour Victory
(Akron, OH) — Thanks to his big weekend in Ohio, Madison golfer Jerry Kelly is automatically qualified for The Players Championship next March and he has a five-year exemption into the PGA Tour Champions’ season opener in Hawaii. Kelly picked up a 450-thousand-dollar winners’ paycheck after claiming a two-shot victory at the Bridgestone Senior Players Championship in Akron over the weekend. Every tournament has at least one big shot for the winner – and Kelly’s was a hole-in-one on number 12 Sunday. He had a one-shot lead at the time and needed a boost. That gave him some breathing room when he posted a double-bogey on 18.
