The Lakers have no problems winning at the Alamo, the Avs have a date with the Devil, Barry Bonds sets a new homerun record, and surprise, surprise -Tiger makes the perfect shot.

The Lakers have no problems winning at the Alamo, the Avs have a date with the Devil and Barry Bonds sets a new homerun record. Here's a look at the latest round of playoff runs and hitting streaks.

1The LA Lakers took a 2 - 0 lead in the Western Conference finals by beating the San Antonio Spurs in back to back games at the Alamo Dome. The Lakers have won 17 games in a row and are unbeaten in the 2001 playoffs. In the NBA's Eastern Conference, the Philadelphia 76ers advanced to the finals when Vince Carter missed a jump shot at the buzzer. Allen Iverson and the 76ers will play the Milwaukee Bucks in the Eastern final.

1The 2001 Stanley Cup Finals will see the Avalanche go toe to toe with the New Jersey Devils. The Avs rolled over the St. Louis Blues and it looks like the Devils will completely shut down Mario, Jagr and the rest of the Penguins. That means the Devils will advance to the Stanley Cup finals for the second year in a row.

1Irchiro Suzuki's hitting streak came to an end after 23 games but the Seattle Mariners keep on rolling. The Japanese sensation is batting .365 and leads the majors in stolen bases. The Mariners are off to the best start in baseball with a 32 - 11 record. Who needs A-Rod? Meanwhile, Barry Bonds became the fastest player to hit 23 homeruns in a season and set another record by smacking eight homeruns in five games.

1Tiger Woods won a tournament in Germany by nailing a shot that was amazing even by the Tiger's standards. Tiger hit an eagle from 175 yards with a six iron. The ball went right in the hole without even touching the green.
