 ๐Ÿ€Nets: The Nets not only lost 107โ€“96 to the Milwaukee Bucks yesterday, but they also lost star Kyrie Irving to a twisted ankle in the second quarter. Irving didnโ€™t return to the court, but he will be reevaluated today. Yikes. 

  • Although Kevin Durant still shone with 28 points and 13 rebounds, losing another third of the Big Three (with James Harden already sidelined) allowed the Bucks to take advantage. 
  • The tied series returns to the Barclays Center for Game 5 tomorrow. Time to make some noise, Brooklyn!

๐Ÿ’Islanders: After a scoreless first period in yesterdayโ€™s Game 1 of the Stanley Cup semifinals, Isle Mathew Barzal found the back of the net in the second (with the puck and then his body) to give New York the lead over the Tampa Bay Lightning. Cominโ€™ in hot.

  • Then in the third, Ryan Pulockโ€™s beautiful slapper doubled the Islesโ€™ lead, and although the Bolts were able to get one past goalie Semyon Varlamov, New York held onto the lead to win 2โ€“1. How bou dah

๐Ÿ€Liberty: The Liberty put an end to their three-game losing skid, beating the Phoenix Mercury 85โ€“83 last night. Betnijah Laney carried the team with 23 points and 10 assists in the absence of star Sabrina Ionescu, who was sidelined due to tendonitis in the ankle she had surgery on last year. You win some, you lose some.
