 ๐Ÿ€NBA: Are we ever going to see a Battle of LA playoff series? The Lakers did their part on Tuesday, evening their series with the Phoenix Suns at 1-1. But the Clippers arenโ€™t holding up their end of the deal, losing both games at home to fall behind 0-2 to the Dallas Mavericks. Mamma mia, here we go again. 

  • Though Kawhi Leonard scored 30 points in the first half on Tuesday and Paul George added 28 points and 12 rebounds, the Clips still couldnโ€™t shut down the Mavs. Maybe former head coach Doc Rivers isnโ€™t to blame for all the Clipsโ€™ playoff woes.
  • Game 3 tomorrow at 9:30 p.m. ET/6:30 p.m. PT is a must-win road game for the Clips: no NBA team has ever come back from 0-3 to win a series.

โšพ๏ธMLB: Itโ€™s all about the pitching. The Dodgers relied on the arm of Clayton Kershaw to take down the detested Houston Astros on Tuesday, but then lost yesterday. Angel two-way phenom Shohei Ohtani (who blasted a three-run homer on Tuesday) will look to replicate Kershaw on the mound tonight against the Oakland Aโ€™s.

And finally, the news weโ€™ve all been waiting for: after suspending him three months ago for sexual harassment allegations, the Angels finally fired pitching coach Mickey Callaway yesterday following the completion of MLBโ€™s investigation. Good riddance.
