Good morning! Here are the plays everybody will be talking about Wednesday:
The Manu Ginobili block. The Houston Rockets trailed the San Antonio Spurs by three in the closing seconds of overtime of the pivotal Game 5. They got the ball in the right hands as James Harden attempted the game-tying three-pointer, but it was Ginobili who came from behind and made a clean block to seal the win for the Spurs and a 3-2 lead in the series.
Ross Stripling running like he is “trying to run away from a bear.” The Los Angeles Dodgers tied the Pittsburgh Pirates with Cody Bellinger’s 2-out single in the ninth. The Dodgers then won the game in the tenth when Austin Barnes singled home the not-so-nimble-footed Stipling. After the game, Stripling said he was just running as fast as he could, as if he was “trying to run away from a bear.”
The Erik Karlsson goal. The Ottawa Senators eliminated the New York Rangers and advanced to the Eastern Conference final with a 4-2 win in Game 6. The big goal came on a nifty pass from Bobby Ryan from behind the net to Erik Karlsson in the second period to make it 3-1. The Rangers were able to make it 3-2 early in the third, but could never get the tying goal.
