May your Monday start off how you like your coffee, strong and balanced.
With a side of sugar,
The Last Night’s Game Team
NBA (National Basketball Association)
- Back it up. Steph Curry and his Golden State Warriors are up 3-0 in their playoff series vs. Portland Trail Blazers. Although the playoffs may have already swept Warriors' head coach Steve Kerr. Kerr was unable to coach game three and will not coach game four (and may be out for the entire playoffs) due to chronic back pain which caused him to miss half of last season.
- Sweep you off your feet. The Cleveland Cavaliers swept the Indiana Pacers to become the first team to advance to second round of the playoffs. This marks LeBron James’ record-breaking 10th sweep in a playoff series. Curious what’s happening in the playoffs? We have you covered.
NASCAR (National Association for Stock Car Auto Racing)
- Rain delay. Just when you tried to impress your racing fan boss and watch yesterday’s NASCAR race from Bristol, it never happened. The race was postponed until today due to weather. You can catch it at 1 pm EST here.
- In the epic playoff battle between his team, the Oklahoma City Thunder (NBA), and the Houston Rockets, MVP candidate Russell Westbrook hasn’t let his reputation of fashion guru suffer. After yesterday’s loss, he continued to bring his A game at the postgame press conference. We’ll let you determine if his avant-garde outfit is on point or should be pointed toward the exit.
- “El Classico” is a matchup between Spain's Real Madrid and Barcelona. Yesterday’s game featured two of soccer’s best, Cristiano Ronaldo (Real Madrid) and Lionel Messi (Barcelona). Barcelona beat Real Madrid on a goal from Messi in the last 12 seconds of the game..
- The Chicago Cubs won the World Series (MLB – Major League Baseball) last year and broke their championship curse. That win comes with a lot of new fans. Their rival, Cincinnati Reds, took advantage of that situation with the “Bandwagon Fan Cam,” displaying Cubs fans throughout the stadium. Bandwagon fans are fans who start to like a team only when they win. Convenient.
