West Technical For Exercise Bike, Antetokounmpo Waits For Tacos, Manaea’s No-Hitter

BASKETBALL

The Golden State Warriors lost a disappointing game 4 (now up 3-1) to the Indiana Pacers, but David West is getting all of the attention for getting off the bench and hopping on an exercise bike.  The ref wasn’t amused and gave him a technical foul which comes with a $2000 fine.

The Milwaukee Bucks beat the Boston Celtics on Saturday night thanks to 27 points and a thrilling tip-in at the end of the 4th quarter by Giannis Antetokounmpo “the Greek Freak” to give them the 104-102 advantage. After the game, social media lit up when a fan noticed Antetokounmpo waiting for more than 10 minutes for a table then leaving because no one was helping him. The restaurant, BelAir Cantina,  apologized and announced they will give away a free taco (with the purchase of another item) at all their locations if the Bucks win the series Thursday night.

The Oakland Athletics Sean Manaea threw a no-hitter (the 12th in franchise history) in Saturday’s win over the Boston Red Sox. Manaea didn’t even realize he was on the verge of a no-hitter until the 8th inning when he looked up at the scoreboard. He told reporters, “Until the eighth, I thought it just like was a one-hitter. I looked up in the eighth and saw there were still zeros and was like, whoa, weird.”
