Compared to last year, Memorial Day weekend is drastically different this year. The sports world is no longer on hold, and there are plenty of Chicago games happening to fill your free time this holiday weekend.
This weekend will be busy for the Chicago White Sox. Because of the rain on Friday night, Saturday’s doubleheader between the Red Sox and Baltimore Orioles was postponed. On Sunday, the Sox conclude their series against the Orioles in Cleveland before facing the Indians again on Memorial Day. A pair of holiday weekend series will take place at Wrigley Field, with the Chicago Cubs hosting the Cincinnati Reds, while the Chicago Sky hosts the Los Angeles Sparks for a two-game set.

How can Memorial Day weekend be spent watching NBA games?
This weekend, there are a few exciting matchups to watch, even though Chicago does not have a team competing anymore.
NBA playoff results might be of interest to Chicago Bulls fans. The Boston Celtics are heading home to host Games 3 and 4 of the first round of the NBA playoffs in TD Garden against the Brooklyn Nets. The first two games have shown why the Nets are heavy favorites to win this series. After giving Brooklyn a 2-0 lead on Tuesday, Boston will need a redemptive game from Jayson Tatum — after he scored only nine points in the last game — if they seek to salvage the postseason.
Thursday, May 26: Nets vs. Hawks, 7:30 p.m. NBC Sports Boston and ABC (CT)
Monday, June 1: Nets at Rangers, 5:35 p.m. Connecticut (NBC Sports Boston, TNT)
New York Knicks vs Atlanta Hawks is another exciting Eastern Conference series. Heck, it might be the most entertaining series of the playoffs. Games 1 and 2 featured back-and-forth affairs both on and off the court. Trae Young and the Hawks now head home to State Farm Arena Friday night after a thrilling first two games at Madison Square Garden. After Young silenced the roaring New York crowd of 15,000 fans with a last-second dagger in Game 1, the Knicks rallied back to win Game 2 Wednesday night behind a 26-point performance from Derrick Rose.
Taj Gibson recorded six points, seven rebounds, three steals, two blocks and a plus-minus of +23 for the Knicks, who were coached by Tom Thibodeau.
