As of Thursday morning, Loren Lee Chen has won consecutive days of Jeopardy!

And thanks to comfortable leads heading into the Final Jeopardy round of each of his games, he's 2-for-2 in trolling the Golden States Warriors.

On Tuesday, he offered a curious bid of $301 in the final round, an oddly specific figure considering he already had victory in hand. His response was incorrect, and he lost $301 from his earnings for the day.

But he revealed why when someone caught on and asked him on Twitter—because he was trolling the Dubs and their blown 3-1 lead to the Cleveland Cavaliers in the 2016 NBA Finals.

On Wednesday, Chen entered the ultimate round again too distant for his opponents to catch him.

His wager: $739. As in 73-9. As in a record-breaking 73-win season followed by a heartbreaking Finals loss.

Unsurprisingly, Chen hosts an NBA podcast, On The NBA Beat, with two fellow USC alums.

Let's hope the basketball fan can keep it going on Thursday afternoon and deliver another cryptic wager.
