The Rush: Dame and Ja lead Blazers and Grizzlies to play-in series

It was a wild day for the bottom of the NBA’s Western Conference. The Grizzlies and Suns both won, eliminating the Spurs from playoff contention and ending their 23-year postseason streak and keeping the Suns undefeated at 8-0 in Orlando. But then the Trail Blazers, led by red-hot Damian Lillard, beat the Nets, sending the Suns home, and earn the Blazers the right to play Memphis, who went 2-6 in the bubble, for the 8th seed in the West. In NFL land, tight ends Travis Kelce and George Kittle both signed lucrative extensions with the Chiefs and 49ers respectively, with Kittle setting the record for a TE contract. PLUS: Seahawks undrafted rookie CB Kemah Siverand was cut after trying to sneak a lady friend disguised as a player into the team hotel.
