Good morning! Here are the plays everybody will be talking about Wednesday:
Miguel Sano hit one to the carving stations. Sano’s eighth home run of the season was the longest in the short history of Target Field. The mammoth blast was estimated to have travelled 466 feet, landing near the carving station in the restaurant beyond the batter’s eye wall in center field [via “SportsCenter with Scott Van Pelt”].
Stephen Curry put Rudy Gobert in the spin cycle. Stephen Curry scored 22 points in the Golden State Warriors’ Game 1 win over the Utah Jazz and none were prettier than this bucket late in the second quarter. Poor Gobert never had a chance. Even when he grabbed Curry’s jersey from behind, it was still too late [via NBA.com].
Isaiah Thomas breaks 50 with a big shot in OT. Thomas scored 53 in the Boston Celtics’ 129-119 win over the Washington Wizards in Game 2. Thomas’ 50th point came at a crucial point in OT when Thomas got fouled, lost control of the ball, and still made a 15-foot jump shot. It helped stretch the Celtics lead to six and it was game over. The Celtics are now up 2-0 in the series.
