The legend of Kyle Schwarber builds, as the slugger drove in two runs on two hits and scored another as the Cubs beat the Indians 5-1 to even the World Series at 1-1. Not bad for a guy playing his second game since early April. Schwarber now has 10 RBI in 11 career postseason games. Jake Arrieta carried a no-hitter into the sixth, while the Cubs had Cleveland starter Trevor Bauer out of the game in the fourth. We're headed to Wrigley Field for three games over the weekend as one team's march towards history continues.

The Nets lost 122-117 to the Celtics in their season opener. They made 15 of a franchise-record 44 3-point attempts. Boston shot 53.9 percent from the field. Brooklyn trailed by 23 points in the fourth quarter but used an 18-2 run to come all the way back before Justin Hamilton missed a 3 that could've tied the game late. Brook Lopez struggled, going 1-for-7 from the field. Kenny Atkinson's team played hard, but it will be interesting to see how Lopez, a plodding center, fits into the fast-paced, 3-point heavy equation going forward.
