It is that time again. Let’s hear from you, readers. We had another week of stellar performances. Pick the ONE (1), UNE, UNO from April 18-24th that stands out to you, and tell us a story.

Chris Bosh nabs my POTW.

After missing his first three shots from the field, Bosh went on to hit 13 of his next 15 attempts to finish with a game-high 34 points to lead the Miami Heat past the Chicago Bulls 96-85 in game three of the Eastern Conference finals.

Bosh hit eight of ten from the free throw line while grabbing five rebounds and handing out two assists on the night.

With the Bulls defense focusing on the Heat’s two primary stars, LeBron James and Dwyane Wade, Bosh found plenty of open room on the floor and took advantage of the opportunity.

Who gets your POTW?

    My POTW goes to the Los Angeles Police Department. 20 detectives dedicated 6000 hours over the last seven weeks to the Bryan Stow investigation, and yesterday they arrested their top suspect. I just hope they can charge him with attempted murder, although it looks like assault with a deadly weapon is more likely.

    On the field, I’m going with Mariners rookie pitcher Michael Pineda, who pitched 14 shutout innings in two starts (both wins) this past week, striking out 16, walking one and giving up five hits total. OK, this was against San Diego and Minnesota, not exactly two of the most explosive offensive teams, but pretty impressive regardless.

    I would have to give the POTW to Dirk Nowitzki, who had one of the better play off performances we have seen in the past few years. He scored 48 points by shooting 24 for 24 from the charity stripe and 12 for 15 from the field in the first game of his series with the Thunder. He also contributed six rebounds, four assists and four blocked shots. Not to mention, he out played one of the brightest and youngest stars in the league in Kevin Durrant.

    In a game where the Maverick’s other bigs did not show up, Nowitzki put his team on his broad German shoulders and put his team up 1-0 in the Western Conference Finals. In my opinion, he further cemented his status at a top 5 NBA player.

    I am going with Henrik Sedin of the Vancouver Canucks who in 3 games last week, tallied 8 assists. No more was it on show yesterday when Sedin assisted on all 4 Vancouver goals. Sedin has been huge in helping the Canucks jump out to a 3-1 lead in the Western Conference Final.
