Good morning! Here are the plays everybody will be talking about on Tuesday:
Draymond Green mocked LeBron James for flopping. The Cavs and the Warriors met for the final time in the regular season and the Warriors blew out the Cavs 126-91.

The Penguins win a wild one after Sidney Crosby gets away with a trip. In a battle of two of the top teams in the Eastern Conference, the Pens won a wild one 8-7. The game included nine second-period goals and the two teams were still tied 7-7 at the end of the third period. Early in overtime, Sidney Crosby appeared to get away with a trip on Alex Ovechkin. On the Penguins’ very next trip down the ice, they scored on a scramble in front of the net and the Caps were rightfully upset.
