The 3 plays in sports everybody will be talking about today
Good morning! Here are the plays everybody will be talking about Monday:
Kawhi Leonard landed on Zaza Pachulia. The Golden State Warriors overcame a 25-point deficit to beat the San Antonio Spurs, 113-111, in Game 1 of the Western Conference Finals. The pivotal moments came in the third quarter when Leonard injured his already-sore ankle when he got tangled up with a teammate. Shortly after that, with the Spurs still up by 21, Leonard injured his ankle again when Pachulia was defending a shot and got a foot under Leonard, who landed on it and twisted his ankle. Leonard had to leave the game, and the Warriors went on an 18-0 run. Leonard did not return to the game.
Rafa Cabrera Bello's historic albatross. With the help of a fortunate bounce, Bello become the first player to get a double-eagle on the par-5 16th hole at the Players Championship. Bello's second shot from the fairway hit a mound in front of the green just right and shot straight toward the hole. It rolled in, and the crowd erupted.
The Byron Buxton catch. The Twins lost to the Indians, 8-3, on Sunday, but Buxton had the play of the day as he robbed Carlos Santana, running full speed into the center-field wall.
The Derek Jeter bonus. The Yankees retired Jeter's No. 2 on Sunday. This had many going down memory lane, with most people starting at his most iconic moment, the flip to get Jason Giambi at the plate during the 2001 playoffs.
