 🏀Lakers: Deep breaths, it’s just Game 1. The Lakers definitely didn’t look like the favorites in yesterday’s 99–90 loss to a limited Chris Paul and the Phoenix Suns. And even though things became chippy in the fourth quarter, it wasn’t enough to fire up the Lake Show. A little urgency, please.

  • The Lakers — especially Anthony Davis, who shot just 5-of-16 from the field — will look to turn things around in front of a raucous crowd tomorrow at 10 p.m. ET/7 p.m. PT. 

🏀Clippers: The Clippers also dropped Game 1, falling 113–103 to the Dallas Mavericks at home on Saturday. Playoff Rondo showed up, but the rest of the Clips — the league’s top 3-point shooting team in the regular season — shot just 8-of-36 from the 3-point line. They’ll need to find their magic touch tomorrow at 10:30 p.m. ET/7:30 p.m. PT.

🏃🏻‍♂️Rapid recaps:

  • 🎓🥎No. 2 UCLA softball beat Minnesota 2–1 in yesterday’s Regional final to move on to Super Regionals and keep their title defense alive.
  • ⚾️ The Dodgers’ starting pitchers showed out all series to help the Boys in Blue sweep the San Francisco Giants yesterday. Break out the brooms! 

🏀The Sparks were on the wrong end of a 97–69 blowout loss to the Las Vegas Aces on Friday. The next challenge ahead? Former Spark Candace Parker and the Chicago Sky. Gulp.
