Cavs and Warriors in NBA Finals for Fourth Year in a Row, Vegas Takes Game 1 Against Capitals, Power Wins Indy 500 and Serena Williams Wins Grand Slam Match
The Cleveland Cavaliers and the Golden State Warriors advance to the NBA Finals after playing two games over the Memorial Day weekend. Despite being down two games to the Celtics after Thursday, the Cavs came back with a 109-99 win in Cleveland on Friday, then finished the series with a 87-79 win in Boston on Sunday. The Warriors similarly came back from a two-game deficit with a 115-86 home game win on Saturday, followed by a 101-92 victory last night in Houston.
This means that for the fourth straight year, the Warriors and the Cavs will face off in the NBA finals. The first game of the series is on Thursday in Oakland.
The Golden Knights won the first game of the Stanley Cup finals in Vegas against the Washington Capitals. A back-and-forth game followed Vegas' thrilling and comically over-the-top opening ceremony, and saw the lead change four times resulting in a 6-4 win for the Golden Knights. NHL.com quotes Vegas defenceman Nate Schmidt on the rollercoaster match:
"A lot of times you feel like the game is going in one direction, and then they score and we score. A lot of emotion. You've just got to make sure you keep it in check. It was a pretty emotional game for everybody."
IndyCar driver Will Power won the Indianapolis 500 for Team Penske, completing the race in just under three minutes. Indy500 quotes an ecstatic Power on his win:
"I was wondering if I was ever going to win it, and thoughts went through my mind during the month like that. In my career, I've had so many wins, so many poles. But everyone always talks about the '500.' And I won it. I just couldn't imagine winning a race in front of crowd like this, this many people. It's just amazing. What an event. I love it."
Veteran driver Danica Patrick's career-closing race at the Indy 500 ended with her crash on Lap 58, earning her 30th place.
The Associated Press reports that Serena Williams has "won her first Grand Slam match as a mother", beating Kristyna Pliskova of the Czech Republic 7-6 (4), 6-4 at the French Open today.
