We're getting into crunch time for both the NBA and the NHL. It's the conference finals for the NBA, with LeBron James and his Cleveland Cavaliers on the brink of elimination; they trail the Orlando Magic 3-1.

Over in the National Hockey League, Detroit and Pittsburgh will open the Stanley Cup finals this Saturday in Detroit. For more we turn to The Takeaway's sports contributor Ibrahim Abdul-Matin.
