Good morning! Here are the plays everybody will be talking about Wednesday:
The Roman Josi power-play goal. The Nashville Predators took a 2-1 lead over the Anaheim Ducks with a 2-1 come-from-behind win in Game 3 of the Western Conference Finals on Tuesday. The Preds scored both of their goals in the third period, including the game-winner with less than three minutes to go on a power play. Josi’s goal came on a rebound when Ducks goalie John Gibson had no idea where the puck was. He looked right and the puck was left, leaving the net wide open.
Stephen Curry put a defender on his backside. The San Antonio Spurs are in a bad place right now in the Western Conference Finals against the Golden State Warriors. In the first 48 minutes after Kawhi Leonard was injured in the third quarter of Game 1, the Warriors outscored the Spurs 139-90. This play wasn’t part of those 48 minutes, but it does sum up the series now. Curry got an easy layup and somehow still managed to draw a foul for a 3-point play.
Joe Maddon had a glass of wine to celebrate his 1,000th win. The Cubs beat the Reds 9-5 on Tuesday, giving Maddon his 1,000th career win as a manager. After the game, he didn’t wait to celebrate, having a glass of wine during his postgame press conference.
The Joel Embiid bonus. The star of the NBA Draft lottery was Embiid, who was representing the 76ers during the process. Embiid’s emotions were all over the spectrum.
