What’s Happening in Sports: May 4, 2022

May 4th, 2022 features more NBA second-round action as Luka Doncic leads the Mavericks against Devin Booker‘s red-hot Suns in Phoenix, as well as James Harden having to carry the load without Joel Embiid for the 76ers on the road against Jimmy Butler and the Heat. In the MLB, a full 15-game slate is highlighted by a west coast battle between the Giants and the Dodgers, Anthony Rizzo squaring off against Vladimir Guerrero Jr. as the Yankees face the Blue Jays, and Ian Anderson starting for Atlanta against the New York Mets.

See what happened in sports on May 4th last year, headlined by Giannis leading a fourth-quarter comeback against the Nets in what became a Playoff preview and the Rockies mounting their own comeback to overcome a six-run deficit during the final inning of a doubleheader against the Giants, as well as what happened in sports on May 4th, 2020 ft. the final decisions for all fifth-year options of the 32 first-round picks from the 2017 NFL Draft, with perhaps the most shocking being the Colts declining S Malik Hooker‘s deal.
