 🏀Sixers: The 76ers had a week-long break between the regular season and the playoffs, and it looked like that rest (plus the home court advantage) did them good, as they beat the Washington Wizards 125–118 in Game 1 yesterday. 

  • With MVP-finalist Joel Embiid seeing limited minutes due to foul trouble, Tobias Harris stepped up, leading the team with 37 points. Seth Curry also shone, scoring 15 of his own, including three important 3-point shots in the third quarter. 
  • We can’t wait for more of this in Game 2 on Wednesday at 7 p.m. ET. 

🏃🏻‍♂️Rapid recaps:

  • 🎓🥎 After suffering two losses in their first three games, the Villanova women’s softball team was eliminated from the NCAA tournament in the Wildcats first-ever appearance. Sigh. 
  • ⚾️Though they lost the first two games of the series, the Phillies took one off the Boston Red Sox yesterday, winning 6–2 largely thanks to infielder Brad Miller’s three-run homer in the first inning. Consider the bell...rung. 

⚽️The Union beat D.C. United 1–0 last night with a goal in extra time from Kacper Przybyłko (pronounced KATS-pehr shuh-BILL-koh). That’s his second goal in the last three games, so we really love what we’re seeing from the Polish striker.
