Allen Kee / ESPN Images(OKLAHOMA CITY) -- Don't count them out just yet.

Despite now trailing the Western Conference Finals 3-1 to the Oklahoma City Thunder, Golden State Warriors point guard Stephen Curry says, "The series isn't over."

"We've got to believe in ourselves," Curry said after his team lost 118-94 to the Thunder in Game 4 Tuesday. "There's obviously frustration."

Tuesday night's defeat was the second straight loss for the Warriors and marked the first time the team, which set an NBA record this year for the most wins (73) in a regular season, lost back to back games.

"It's a terrible feeling once again not stepping up and being ourselves and playing our game," Curry told reporters. "But I think we're a special team. This isn't how we're going to go out."

The Warriors will have a chance to get back in the series on Thursday when they return home to Oakland, California for Game 5. Should Golden State lose, they will be eliminated from the playoffs.

"The idea now is to go home and get one win," Warriors coach Steve Kerr said. "Do that, and we put some pressure on them and we'll see what happens."

Courtesy Window World Stinger(INDIANAPOLIS) — The Indianapolis 500 is kicking off its 100-year anniversary by auctioning off an iconic car to help children fighting cancer.

For racing fans, The Stinger is a priceless piece of history. It is an interpretation of the Marmon Wasp, the car known for winning the first-ever Indianapolis 500.

Commissioned by exterior remodeling company Window World, The Stinger celebrates a century of Indy 500 legends. Veteran driver John Andretti traveled thousands of miles across the country to have the car signed by Indy 500 veterans.

With nearly 250 signatures, including those from four-time winners A.J. Foyt, Rick Mears and Al Unser Sr., it is considered to be one of the greatest rolling autograph collections in motorsports.

“This is such a unique car marked by the fearless spirit of so many veteran drivers. We’re confident we will see bidding amounts beyond our wildest dreams — all to help children have a future they deserve,” Andretti said.

The car will be auctioned off May 25, four days ahead of the race at the Dallara IndyCar Factory. All of the money made will go to St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital in Memphis, Tennessee.

“We anticipate it will sell for $1 million or more. While The Stinger is a trophy for an elite group of drivers, it is more importantly a symbol of hope for children battling for their lives.”

Several other items will be sold at the auction, including tickets for a private tour of Jay Leno’s garage, an evening at Jimmy Kimmel Live, a Grand Prix of Sonoma weekend package, an Indy 500 Experience package and other memorabilia.

Jared C. Tilton/Getty Images(CHARLOTTE, N.C.) — Hendrick Motorsports teammates Jimmie Johnson and Dale Earnhardt Jr. will sport patriotic designs on their cars when they race at Charlotte Motor Speedway during Memorial Day weekend.

Johnson will have a red, white and blue paint scheme on his No. 48 car, while Earnhardt will have a stars-and-stripes theme on his No. 88 car.

In addition, the nameplates on the windshields of Hendrick Motorsports' four cars will be replaced by the names of fallen soldiers.

“NASCAR has always had a close relationship with the military of our country, and honors a family weekly who has lost someone,” Earnhardt says in a story published on his team's website. “We always have service men and women out to the track as guests. That’s always been an important addition to the weekend. I like that we ramp it up for this particular weekend."

Charlotte Motor Speedway will host the Sprint Cup Series' Coca-Cola 600 this Sunday.

ESPN(NEW YORK) -- It wouldn't be the ESPYS without the Jimmy V Perseverance Award, and this year's recipient couldn't be more deserving.

Craig Sager, 64, was diagnosed with leukemia just two years ago and has shared his battle with the sports world while still working on the sidelines at TNT.

“Over the last two years, I’ve done everything in my power to live my life as normally as possible. But at times, you need support and I’m so thankful to everyone who has been there for me," the 2016 honoree said Tuesday in a press release from ESPN.

Sager -- who has gotten love and support not only from his co-workers these past two years, but also the players and coaches he covers daily -- will join the likes of the greats, George Karl, Stuart Scott and Leah and Devon Still, all past Jimmy V Award winners.

The announcement fittingly was made Tuesday night during game 4 of the Western Conference Finals, which Sager is covering.

The Jimmy V Award is named in honor of the late, great Jim Valvano, who gave his iconic "never give up" speech at the ESPYS more than 20 years ago.

"I have his speech saved on my phone and, now 23 years later, its impact lives on with me and countless others. There is no greater honor than receiving this award and I am very humbled," Sager added.

Senior Vice President of ESPN Films Connor Schell said Sager's "dedication to continuing the career he loves in spite of this difficult illness is the very definition of perseverance and we’re proud to honor Craig at this year’s ESPYS."

The ESPYS air July 13 on ABC.

Leon Bennett/Getty Images(LOS ANGELES) -- The University of California, Los Angeles, has reached an endorsement deal with Under Armour worth a record $280 million over 15 years.

The deal, which begins July 1, 2017, is the largest apparel deal in the history of the NCAA according to the Los Angeles Times, and it comes after UCLA's Adidas deal was set to expire.

"UCLA has always been about challenging the status quo and breaking through barriers,'' UCLA athletic director Dan Guerrero said in a statement according to ESPN. "Under Armour shares those core values. They are about more than simply making athletes look good, they constantly pursue innovation in order to make athletes better."

Under Armour is the latest athletic brand to sign a record sponsorship deal. Nike has signed deals with Ohio State and Texas worth about $250 million each, and Michigan switched from Adidas to Nike in a deal worth about $16 million per year for 11 years.

Rob Carr/Getty Images(ELMONT, N.Y.) -- Kentucky Derby winner Nyquist will not make an appearance in the Belmont Stakes.

A few days after the colt lost his bid for a Triple Crown when he ran third in the Preakness Stakes, Nyquist is said to not be competing in Belmont on June 11 because of illness.

Trainer Doug O’Neill told the Daily Racing Form Tuesday that Nyquist had an elevated white blood-cell count and his temperature was 101.2 degrees, a full degree above normal.

“We’re going to put him on stronger antibiotics, get him right, get him back to California and let him relax and recover from the trip,” O’Neill told the Daily Racing Form.

Nyquist, who was undefeated until last weekend, will not have a rematch with Preakness winner Exaggerator in June, but O'Neill said he hoped the colt would be able to return to racing sometime this summer.

Phil Ellsworth / ESPN Images(TORONTO) -- Cleveland Cavaliers forward Kevin Love says he won't sit out the next game against the Toronto Raptors despite injuring his knee on Monday.

Love said he hurt himself towards the end of the third quarter after stepping on a referee's foot.

"I think Kyrie [Irving] was shooting towards the end of the third quarter, and I stepped on the official's foot, and it didn't feel too great," he said after the game.

But that won't keep him from playing in Game 5 on Wednesday.

"Will be sore tomorrow, but nothing that will prevent me from playing," Love said after Monday's game.

Love was sidelined for the fourth quarter in Game 4 as his team lost 105-99 to Toronto. The Eastern Conference Finals are now tied 2-2.
