June 8th, 2022 features a pivotal Game 3 as the NBA Finals shifts to Boston after Golden State’s furious third quarter run pushed them past the Celtics to even the series. MLB’s action-packed 15-game slate includes many great matchups including two of the NL’s best concluding their set as Lindor‘s Mets battle Machado‘s Padres. The Rays host St. Louis after Taylor Walls played the unlikely hero for Tampa, while AL division leaders square off with the Yankees facing Minnesota. The Walton-Penner group just purchased the Broncos for a record $4.65B.

See what happened in sports on June 8th last year, headlined by Nikola Jokic becoming the lowest picked player (41st) to ever win NBA MVP after a record-setting campaign, Donovan Mitchell‘s 45-point explosion leading Utah to a Game 1 win over the Clippers, and Joel Embiid‘s playoff career-high 40 points propelling Philly to a 1-1 tie as well as what happened in sports on June 8th, 2020 ft. LaMarcus Aldridge‘s shoulder surgery costing him the rest of 2019-20 and the NFL announcing club facilities would open up to players soon.
