Grizzlies, Celtics, Suns, Heat Win Game 2’s, Simmons Microdiscectomy, Herro Sixth Man, $9.3 Mill For Maradona’s Jersey

BASKETBALL

Matching his playoff career-high of 47 points, Ja Morant led the Memphis Grizzlies to a Game 2 win over the Golden State Warriors. Morant joins Kobe Bryant and LeBron James as the only players in the NBA who have scored multiple 45-point playoff games at an age younger than 23 years old. The semifinal series is tied at 1-1.

The Boston Celtics also evened their series with the Milwaukee Bucks and are now 1-1.

Thanks to the stellar play of Devin Booker and Chris Paul, the Phoenix Suns blew out the Dallas Mavericks to take a 2-0 lead.

The Philadelphia 76ers are clearly hurting without injured star Joel Embiid (facial fracture and concussion) and are now down 2-0 to the Miami Heat.

In other NBA news, former 76er and current Brooklyn Net, Ben Simmons, will have a microdiscectomy for his back pain.

Miami Guard Tyler Herro was named the NBA’s Sixth Man of the Year.

SOCCER
