The Golden State Warriors have lost back-to-back games for the first time all season following Tuesday's 118-94 defeat at the hands of the Oklahoma City Thunder.

Though Warriors guard Klay Thompson had himself a night (26 points, five rebounds, one assist, three steals and a block), backcourt mate Stephen Curry made just six of his 20 field-goal attempts en route to 19 points while also sporting a disappointing plus/minus of minus-19.

However, forward Draymond Green was Golden State's biggest disappointment, putting up just six points with a plus/minus of minus-30.

On the other hand, the Thunder stars fared much better in nearly every way.

Following Monday's outing against the Cincinnati Reds, Los Angeles Dodgers pitcher Clayton Kershaw had thrown as many shutouts (3) in the month of May as the rest of MLB combined, per ESPN Stats & Info

Of course, this isn't the only gaudy statistic Kershaw has churned out lately.

Not only is the man undefeated in May (5-0), but he also flaunts a 0.64 ERA with 55 strikeouts compared to only two walks.

For the season, Kershaw boasts a 7-1 record, 1.48 ERA and 19.0 strikeout-to-walk ratio.

Toronto Raptors center Bismack Biyombo grabbed a franchise-record 26 rebounds during Saturday's 99-84 Game 3 victory against the Cleveland Cavaliers, joining Hakeem Olajuwon (twice), Tim Duncan and Dwight Howard as the only players to record 25 or more boards in a single playoff game—since 1984—per Elias Sports Bureau (via NBA.com/stats).

Those 26 rebounds bested the previous Raptors record of 25, set earlier this season by Biyombo himself in a game against the Indiana Pacers.

The old Raptors record for single-game postseason rebounds was held by fellow center Jonas Valanciunas, who grabbed 19 rebounds in a first-round game against the Pacers a couple of weeks ago.

Interestingly, Biyombo grabbed 20 of his rebounds before he scored a single point.

Miami Marlins outfielder Ichiro Suzuki collected a pinch-hit single during the eighth inning of Wednesday's game against the Philadelphia Phillies, bumping him up to 2,950 hits for his career.

Even more impressive, Suzuki started his career in Japan at the age of 18, playing nine seasons with Orix of the Japan Pacific League before finally joining MLB in 2001 as a 27-year-old with the Seattle Mariners. 

As a rookie, he led the league in hits (242), stolen bases (56) and batting average (.350), earning not only an American League Rookie of the Year award but also AL MVP honors. He even took home the Gold Glove and Silver Slugger awards and was named as a starter for the All-Star Game.

Suzuki's first season started an incredible run of individual achievements, including 10 straight All-Star Game appearances and 10 straight Gold Gloves as well as three Silver Slugger awards.

Golden State Warriors guard Stephen Curry continued to rewrite the NBA record book during Monday’s 108-102 loss to the Oklahoma City Thunder, this time by becoming the first player in NBA history to make a three-pointer in 45 straight playoff games, per NBA on Twitter.

Previously, the record belonged to Reggie Miller, whose own 44-game streak commenced May 13, 1995, on a night the Indiana Pacers toppled the New York Knicks in Game 4 of the Eastern Conference Semifinals.

Nearly five years later, on May 1, 2000, the Hall of Famer failed to convert both of his shot attempts from beyond the arc in a first-round loss to a Milwaukee Bucks team that was led by another legendary sharpshooter, Ray Allen.

Fast-forward to April 20, 2013, when the Warriors faced the Denver Nuggets in Game 1 of a first-round series. Curry made four three-pointers in the contest, and he's made at least one in each of his subsequent 44 playoff appearances.

New York Yankees outfielder Carlos Beltran hit his 400th career home run during Sunday's 7-5 win over the Chicago White Sox, joining Mickey Mantle, Eddie Murray and Chipper Jones as the only switch-hitters in MLB history with 400 or more homers, per MLB Stat of the Day.

The 39-year-old outfielder picked a nice time for his milestone blast, with his two-run homer off White Sox relief pitcher Zach Duke giving the Yankees a 5-4 lead in the bottom of the sixth inning.

Beltran hit the long ball from the right side of the plate, giving him 116 homers (29 percent) as a right-handed batter compared to 284 (71 percent) as a left-handed batter.

Of course, he's only taken 2,711 of his 10,069 career plate appearances (26.9 percent) from the right side, as the majority of pitchers are right-handed.

We may have seen the last of Tim Duncan's NBA career, as the Oklahoma City Thunder eliminated the San Antonio Spurs from the Western Conference playoffs Thursday night. Yet his playoff dominance over his 19-year career will live on forever, with his postseason numbers nothing short of legendary.

Learn about the postseason legend that is Tim Duncan in the video above.

New York Mets pitcher Noah Syndergaard had an enjoyable night at the plate in Wednesday's 4-3 win over the Los Angeles Dodgers and joined Walt Terrell (1983) as the only pitchers in Mets franchise history to hit multiple home runs in a game, per ESPN Stats & Info.

Syndergaard started the scoring with a solo home run off Dodgers pitcher Kenta Maeda in the top of the third inning, but the Dodgers then fought back to take a 2-1 lead courtesy of solo homers from shortstop Corey Seager (third inning) and catcher Yasmani Grandal (fourth inning).

Unfazed, the 23-year-old Syndergaard stepped up to the plate with a pair of runners on base in the fifth inning, and he proceeded to hit the ball over the left-center field fence to give his team a 4-2 lead.

He thus became the first pitcher to homer twice in an MLB game since Micah Owings accomplished the feat in 2007 for the Arizona Diamondbacks, per Sportsnet Stats.

The Boston Red Sox scored 13 or more runs in each contest of a three-game series against the Oakland Athletics, becoming the first team since the 1999 Cleveland Indians to plate 13-plus runs in three consecutive games, per ESPN Stats & Info.

After losing two of three games to the rival New York Yankees in a weekend series in the Bronx, the Red Sox returned home and beat the Athletics by scores of 14-7 (Monday), 13-5 (Tuesday) and 13-3 (Wednesday).

According to MLB Stat of the Day, the Red Sox had previously never scored 13-plus runs in three straight games, despite being one of the oldest franchises in baseball.

It obviously takes a team effort to sustain that kind of production throughout a series, but there were still a few notable standouts, including 26-year-old outfielder Jackie Bradley Jr., who had eight hits, three home runs and 13 RBI over the course of the three-game set.
