We waited until Tuesday to share SQ with you, thinking we’d have some big news. Well, we have some big news… but not the big news we thought we might have! Check out LeBron and Kyrie carrying Cleveland to a win (and another game) last night:
QUIPS FOR THIS WEEK
Game 6 it is! Last night, LeBron James and Kyrie Irving each scored 41 points to nab a big win and keep the Cleveland Cavaliers’ dream alive. The Golden State Warriors were playing without Draymond Green, who was suspended for Game 5. Final score was 112-97 on Golden State’s home turf in Oakland, so we’ll be headed to Cleveland on Thursday to see if the Golden State Warriors will win it all, or if the Cleveland Cavaliers will force a Game 7. Don’t miss this game – 9pm EST on ABC.
After Sunday night’s big Game 6, the Pittsburgh Penguins are your 2016 Stanley Cup winners. Even though the San Jose Sharks scored a 4-2 win against the Penguins on their own home turf in Game 5 to force a Game 6, the Penguins brought home the Cup after a 3-1 win at SAP Center. This is the fourth Stanley Cup title in the team’s history. The Penguins’ own Sidney Crosby also won the Conn Smythe Trophy as playoff MVP – in Game 6, he set up two assists including one that would facilitate teammate Kris Letang’s game-winner.
The United States scored a 4-0 win over Costa Rica in Group A of the Copa America last Tuesday, and a 1-0 win over Paraguay on Saturday night. They will move forward to the Copa America quarterfinals, and will play Ecuador on Thursday at 9:30pm EST.
