John Barry is mad during this week's episode of Xtra Points.

The Gazette sports reporter is sick of watching Pau Gasol flop around and scream in hopes of drawing a foul call. And he's angry that the North American Hockey League snubbed Janesville Jets goalie Matt Jurusik out of multiple awards after a fantastic season.

We try to cool Barry down long enough to judge the Bucks' chances of pulling of NBA playoff history by coming back from a 3-0 series deficit and the Jets, who are on the cusp of earning a spot in the Robertson Cup semifinals.

We also talk about a big weekend for sports, including what the Green Bay Packers might do when the draft starts Thursday. The first round of the draft kicks off what should be a fantastic sports weekend, with Saturday including the Kentucky Derby and the long-awaited fight between Floyd Mayweather and Manny Pacquiao.

As always, our theme music is "Rock Hybrid" by Kevin MacLeod. Find more of his work at his website.
