The Golden State Warriors have set many records during their reign as the best team in the NBA, but they could doubtless do without the record they set on Monday night. The Warriors blew the biggest lead ever in a playoff game — 31 points — en route to a 135-131 loss to the Clippers at home in Game 2 of their series. They also lost center DeMarcus Cousins likely for the remainder of the postseason with a quad injury. That leaves the short-handed Warriors tied 1-1 with the Clips in their best-of-seven series heading into tonight’ s Game 3 at Staples Center.

Another series all knotted up is the NHL quarterfinal matchup between the Winnipeg Jets and St. Louis Blues. Tied at 2-2 with each team winning their games on the other’s home ice, Game 5 will be tonight at Winnipeg’s Bell MTS Place. To get Dunkel’s pick for this game and the full NHL schedule, click HERE.
And last year, the Dodgers knocked off the Brewers in the NLCS in seven games. Milwaukee exacted a little revenge last weekend by taking two of three from the Dodgers in LA. Tonight, the two teams will meet yet again as they open up a four-game set in Milwaukee. The Dodgers will send Julio Urias (0-1, 5.27) to the mound against the Brewers’ Zach Davies (2-0, 1.53).
