The last time only one quarterback went in the first two rounds of the #NFLDraft was the year 2000. That year, a quarterback from Michigan fell down to New England in the sixth round. As @TomBrady can tell you, draft day isn’t about where you go, it’s about getting a chance.

Dodgers catchers Will Smith and Mike Piazza each needed exactly 233 games to hit 50 career HR. By games played, they're the two fastest catchers to reach 50 HR in National League history (h/t @EliasSports), minimum of 50% of games played at catcher.

The 76ers have won five consecutive home games, all by double digits. (That includes 20 and 15 point victories over Toronto.) Philadelphia is 4-1 against the spread during this run. #WeTheNorth | #PhilaUnite | #NBATwitter | #NBA

Kevin Durant's 16 points in 46 minutes in Game 3 was just the second time in the last five years that Durant was held under 20 points in a game which he played at least 40 minutes. Can he bounce back in Game 4 or is it too late for Brooklyn? #NetsWorld #BleedGreen #NBATwitter

A couple of big anniversaries for New York's baseball teams! Some say there is no win quite like your first. @Yankees @Mets
Before last night, no team had scored 21 straight points in a playoff game since 2017 (Wizards 26 straight vs. BOS on 5/7). Now, it's happened 2 days in a row. We asked the @memgrizz this last night, so now it’s your turn @MiamiHEAT. What on #EarthDay was that, Miami?
There were eight Game 3s last year in which the home team entered down 0-2 in the series. Those home teams went 5-3 overall and 4-4 against the spread in Game 3. Can the Hawks pull off the win tonight? #BelieveAtlanta #HEATCulture #NBATwitter #NBA

Is it time to start worrying about some players' performances at the plate yet? Our own @MattMartingale runs the numbers for you. #MLB esb.com/blog/mlb-batte…
What on earth was that, Memphis?The Grizzlies are the 8th team in NBA history to win a playoff game after trailing by 16+ points entering the 4th quarter, and their 9-point margin of victory was the largest by any of those teams. #GrindCity
The Nuggets are 2-5 against the spread as a home underdog this season, and they've lost and failed to cover in their last five straight when getting points at home. Anyone taking them +2.5 tonight? #MileHighBasketball #DubNation #NBATwitter #NBA

The Jazz were 29-12 at home this season but only 17-22-2 against the spread. However, over its final 15 home games, Utah had an improved 9-4-2 record ATS. Are you taking them over Dallas tonight with Luka's status still up in the air? #dALLasIN #TakeNote #NBATwitter

• The Bucks won 20 of 23 games this season when favored by 9+ points, going 12-11 against the spread. • The Bulls were 9+ point underdogs twice, with both games coming against the Bucks in Milwaukee: a 94-90 loss on January 21 (+11.5) and a 93-86 loss in Game 1 (+10.5).

The Celtics have beaten Brooklyn in four straight games, and Jayson Tatum has averaged 33.5 points in those wins. Can the Nets even up the series tonight, or will Boston take a 2-0 lead? #NetsWorld #BleedGreen

Jimmy Butler is the 5th player since 1978 to have 45+ points and zero turnovers in a NBA playoff game. Dominique Wilkins, ATL (5/22/88) Paul Pierce, BOS (5/3/02) Kevin Durant, GS (5/4/19) Jamal Murray, DEN (8/23/20) Jimmy Butler, MIA (4/19/22) h/t @EliasSports

The Pelicans have covered the spread in six of their last ten road games and have won six of those games outright. New Orleans hasn't lost two straight on the road since early March. Anyone like an upset tonight? #WBD | #ValleyProud | #NBATwitter

Miami has won and covered the spread in all three of its home games against Atlanta this season. Will the trend hold in Game 2 tonight? #TrueToAtlanta #HEATCulture #NBATwitter

Last night Clayton Kershaw notched his 100th career win at Dodger Stadium. Only two other pitchers over the last 40 years earned 100+ wins at one venue: Roger Clemens (100 wins at Fenway Park) and Adam Wainwright (100 at Busch Stadium). #MLB
Utah's Donovan Mitchell is averaging 28.9 points in 34 career playoff games. He's scored 30+ points in eight of his last nine playoff games. You taking the over or under on 27.5 points for him tonight? #TakeNote #MFFL #NBATwitter

The Warriors have won their last 11 best-of-seven postseason series in which they won Game 1. Only three teams in #NBA history had a longer streak: Lakers (24, 2000–present) Celtics (22, 1958–1973) Bulls (15, 1990–1998) #DubNation
The Raptors lost Game 1 by 20 points. Of the last seven series in which a team lost the first game by 20+ points, three (!) of those teams came back to win that series: -Cavs over Celtics in 2018 -Bucks over Celtics in 2019 -Nuggets over Clippers in 2020
Devin Booker averaged 27.3 PPG in last year’s playoffs, the first of his career. Since the merger the only other players to average 27 PPG on at least 10 games in their first postseason were Julius Erving in 1977 (27.3), LeBron James in 2006 (30.8), and Trae Young in 2021 (28.8).
Yu Darvish’s fourth strikeout of the day there was the 1,600th of his career. With just 1,302.1 innings pitched, Darvish is the fastest pitcher to 1,600 Ks by innings pitched. No other pitcher has ever reached that milestone in fewer than 1,350 innings.
Defending NBA champions are 54–18 in their first game of the following postseason. The Lakers lost their first game last year, ending a streak of five straight PS opening game wins for the defending champs.  The Bucks only previous such game was a loss to the Warriors in 1972.
The Celtics have lost two of their last three playoff openers as a top two seed, losing to the Bulls in 2009 (2 seed) and 2017 (1 seed) before beating the Bucks in 2018. Prior to that, back to 1984, they had won eight straight opening games of the playoffs. #BleedGreen
The Heat earned the top seed in the Eastern Conference despite five of their top 10 in minutes played on the season being undrafted players. They are the first team in the modern draft era (since 1966) to even make the playoffs with 5 of their top 10 in minutes being undrafted.
The Warriors have won their last 11 Game 1s played at home, the longest current streak in the NBA. Over the last 30 years, only two other teams have had Game 1 home win streaks that long: the Bulls (19 straight, 1992 to 2011) and Spurs (13, 2012 to 2017). #DubNation
And now, thanks to the Timberwolves win over the Grizzlies, the Sixers stand alone with the worst record in Game 1s since 2011. Up 7 here early on the Raptors, Philadelphia looks to take a rare-to-them 1-0 series lead. twitter.com/eliassports/st…
Since 2011, the 76ers are just 2–8 in the first game of a playoff series. Among teams in this postseason, the only team with a worse Game 1 record over that span is the Timberwolves (0–1 pending today’s game). Will the Raptors keep this trend alive with a win in Philly tonight?
Ja Morant has 21+ FGAs in each of his five career playoff games. The only players in NBA history to attempt more than 20 field goals in each of their first six PS games are Rick Barry, George Gervin, and Lebron James. Will Ja take enough shots today to join that group? #GrindCity
The Mavericks are hosting the opening game of a postseason series for the first time since the 2011 Western Conference Finals, a win over the Thunder. Dallas is 12–4 all time in Game 1s at home. Down 2 at the half without Luka Dončić, can they move to 13-4 in such games? #MFFL
Austin Nola has driven in a run in his first six games of the season, the longest such streak to start a season in Padres history. #TimeToShine The last #MLB player to do that in each of his first seven games of a season? Giancarlo Stanton for the Marlins in 2014.
Marcus Stroman's 1.64 ERA in three career starts at Coors Field is the lowest for any pitcher with at least three starts at that venue behind Homer Bailey (1.40 in 3 GS). #JackieRobinsonDay | #Cubs
José Ramírez, at 29 years old, has 999 career hits, all for Cleveland. Only two Guardians players over the last 25 years reached 1,000 hits with the team before turning 30 years old, and both reached that milestone in 2000: Manny Ramírez (age 28) and Jim Thome (29). #ForTheLand
CLE’s Jarrett Allen will try to suit up tonight after a lengthy stint out. When he played this season, the Cavs allowed an average of 103.1 points per game; when he was out, they allowed 111.2 points. Who do you like in tonight's play-in game? #BelieveAtlanta #LetEmKnow #NBA

Tom Seaver won 182 games over his first 10 seasons, all for the Mets. Those are the most wins for any pitcher over his first 10 #MLB seasons among those who debuted in the expansion era (since 1961). #LGM
LA's Paul George has entered the #NBA health and safety protocols and will miss tonight's game. The Clippers went 18-13 in games George played and 24-27 in games he missed this season. Are the Pelicans about to lock up a playoff spot? #WBD #ClipperNation #NBATwitter

The great Jackie Robinson played his first game for the Dodgers 75 years ago today. Who was the Braves’ pitcher for Robinson’s first career plate appearance for the Dodgers? #MLB
Yesterday's answer: Randy Johnson had 12 career games with at least 13 strikeouts and zero walks, an #MLB record. #EliasTrivia twitter.com/EliasSports/st…
Walker Buehler has a career winning percentage of .786 at Dodger Stadium (22–6). If Buehler earns a win tonight, he would pass Sandy Koufax (.792, 57–15) for the highest winning percentage for any pitcher at Dodger Stadium (minimum: 20 decisions). #MLB #Dodgers
