Today On KSR: DID YOU SEE THE CLIPPERS COMEBACK?

Shai Gilgeous-Alexander and the Clippers shocked the world with a record comeback in Game 2 of the NBA playoffs Monday night.

Trailing Golden State by 31 points halfway through the third quarter, L.A. came all the way back to upset the Warriors after having a 0.01% win probability. It took 72 points in 19 minutes to pull off the single greatest comeback in NBA playoff history. SEVENTY TWO POINTS IN NINETEEN MINUTES!!!!

Gilgeous-Alexander scored only four points in the game, but still played 33 big minutes with five assists, four steals and only one turnover, while chasing Steph Curry all over the place on the other end. The former Cat also assisted the biggest play of the game when he drove and kicked it outside to Landry Shamet for the go-ahead 3-pointer with only 16 seconds left.

Cue the “Warriors blew a 3-1 lead joke.” I don’t even have to open Twitter to know it is all over Twitter.

 

Kentucky hosts Louisville tonight at Kentucky Proud Park.

Fresh off its first road series win over a top 10 opponent since 2015, your University of Kentucky Wildcats baseball team will begin a four-game homestand beginning with Louisville tonight and ending with three straight against Tennessee from Thursday to Saturday.

Tonight’s contest against Louisville will air at 6:30 p.m. ET on SEC Network Plus, but you should consider going out to Kentucky Proud Park instead.

It will be the second and final meeting of the season between the Cats and the Cards; Louisville won the first one, 8-3, at Louisville two weeks ago.

Beat Louisville.

DeMarcus Cousins and Andre Woodson headline UK Athletics 2019 Hall of Fame Class.

UK announced its next Hall of Fame class last night with six new inductees in 2019: DeMarcus Cousins (men’s basketball), Henri Junghanel (rifle), A’dia Mathies (women’s basketball), Vic Nelson (cross country/track and field), Don Weber (cross country/track and field and Andre’ Woodson (football).

The new class will be inducted during Hall of Fame Weekend, September 13-14, in conjunction with the home football game against Florida.

 

Now that the recruiting period is over, The Roommate is catching up on chores.

But how many hours has he spent catching up on his Alaskan wilderness reality shows?

 

The signing period begins tomorrow.

Starting Wednesday, future college basketball players can officially sign with their respective schools. Of the four committed players in Kentucky’s 2019 recruiting class, two of them — Kahlil Whitney and Keion Brooks — haven’t yet submitted their paperwork to UK. Whitney plans to do so on Friday, May 3 from his hometown of Chicago; Brooks hasn’t set a date on his signature (to my knowledge). Calipari checked in with Whitney over the weekend to make sure their plan is still all good.

 

The DeMarcus Cousins’ injury news is heartbreaking.

Only days after Showtime aired its documentary about Cousins’ comeback from a career-threatening Achilles injury, Cousins suffered a quad injury in last night’s game that will likely keep him out a significant amount of time, maybe even the remainder of the playoffs. He will undergo an MRI today and best case scenario is it is only a strain. We’ll find out soon.

    You may want to consider adding the final score of the Clippers-Warriors game.

    And I turned it off, thinking the game was over!!! Amazing.

    There’s no doubt he tore his quad. There was a picture where you could clearly see it looked like it had retracted upward. Barkley said it feels like window blinds being rolled up (he suffered the same injury during his career).
