🏀Sixers: After a 127–111 win over the Atlanta Hawks on Friday, the Sixers head into tonight’s Game 4 with a 2-1 series lead. Joel Embiid’s grit was the difference-maker in Game 3, leading the team with 27 points and 8 assists while fighting through the pain from his knee injury. He wants that hardware.

  • The physicality of this series also affected Danny Green, who left Friday’s game in the first quarter due to a calf strain that will keep him sidelined for at least two weeks. 
  • The bright side? The Sixers’ depth: secondary players like Furkan Korkmaz have stepped up in each game. Let’s hope our squad extends their lead tonight at 7:30 p.m. ET. 

⚾️Phillies: The Phillies swept the NY Yankees this weekend. Feels good, huh? Thanks to a walk-off single from shortstop Jean Segura, the Phils won 8–7 on Saturday. Then yesterday, Philly pitcher Aaron Nola dominated the Yanks, leading the Phillies to a 7–0 victory. 

  • The Fightin’ Phils are trailing only the NY Mets in the National League (NL) East heading into their series against the NL West’s No. 2, the LA Dodgers. Their first of three games starts tonight at 10:10 p.m. ET. Get that midday WFH nap in!
