What Happened in Sports: May 24, 2021














May 24th, 2021 was highlighted by Milwaukee’s historic playoff blowout win fueled by a record-breaking first half and second quarter to take a 2-0 series lead over the Miami Heat. The Nikola Jokic-led Nuggets bounced back from their Game 1 defeat to take care of Portland despite Dame’s explosive 32-point first half. Jordan Clarkson became the first Jazz player to win the 6th Man of the Year award and the Rays won their 11th straight game after another climatic extra innings victory despite Vlad Guerrero Jr.’s best efforts.
