Good morning! A lot happens in sports, even when you’re busy doing other non-sports-y stuff. So here are the top headlines and moments from yesterday, in case you missed anything while you were watching Better Call Saul.

Black Mamba honored in final road game

Kobe Bryant played his final road game Monday night in Oklahoma City and the #MambaWeek countdown is down to one. Bryant scored 13 points in 19 minutes as the Lakers lost to the Thunder, 112-79. Prior to the game, Kevin Durant and Russell Westbrook presented Bryant with a personalized book that included handwritten notes from Thunder players detailing what Bryant meant to them.

Bryant will play his final game on Wednesday, April 13, at home against the Utah Jazz. As #MambaWeek continues, check out our top eight “Mamba” moments in Bryant’s storied career, and stay tuned for more coverage of his retirement throughout the week.

All in the family…

Our must-see moment comes from Sacramento’s 105-101 win over Phoenix. For all the words we’ve written about Stephen Curry this year, it’s only right that we show some love to his younger brother Seth. Seth Curry showed that greatness is in the genes in these two highlights, a step-back three-pointer and a no look alley-oop pass, which were eerily Steph-like:

Monday Night Raw delivers for second straight week

Monday Night Raw continued it’s vast improvement with Shane McMahon running the show for the second straight week. Shane-O-Mac organized a tag-team tournament that will determine a number-one contender to face New Day at WWE Payback and features new teams from NXT. Kevin Owens and Cesaro battled it out to determine who gets a shot at The Miz’s Intercontinental Championship, with Cesaro winning a very entertaining match. But the show was stolen by A.J. Styles and Sami Zayn, who put on a phenomenal performance full of highlights. Styles won the match to retain his number-one contender status for Roman Reigns’ world heavyweight title.

We even got a little cliffhanger intrigue as indie stars Karl Anderson and Luke Gallows debuted by running out of the crowd to brutally attack the Usos before getting thrown out of the arena. Anderson and Gallows once teamed with Styles to form the Bullet Club, a widely-popular faction in the New Japan Pro Wrestling promotion. With those two in the mix, it seems like Styles will have some help in his ascent to the top of the WWE.
