May 26th, 2022 was highlighted by the Warriors cruising to a comfortable win over Dallas behind Klay Thompson (32 PTS, 8 3PM) to clinch their sixth finals appearance in eight years. Trevor Story’s historic hot streak continues with 21 RBI and seven home runs in as many games, Nestor Cortez set another Yankees record through nine GP, and the Reds broke out for a surprising 20-run outburst vs. Chicago. Tigers legend Miguel Cabrera also laced a walk-off single to defeat Cleveland.

New Jersey allowing the Jets and Giants to resume activities again and the NBA planning to return to action.
