🏈Patriots: We’re strolling into Monday like former Alabama QB Mac Jones power walked to grab his new jersey Thursday night. The Pats selected Jones with the 15th pick and continued to roll with the Tide in the second round, taking defensive tackle Christian Barmore with the 38th pick. After those great selections, Nike deserves all of the pets and belly rubs.

🏀Celtics: On Friday, Jayson Tatum tied some guy named Larry Bird’s record for most points scored by a Celtic with his 60-point performance. Casual. And he followed it up with a 33-point showing yesterday, but it wasn’t quite enough for the C’s as they fell 129–119 to the Portland Trail Blazers.

  • The Celtics will have two much-needed days to regroup before Wednesday’s 7 p.m. ET matchup with the Orlando Magic. Playoff push, baby.

🏒Bruins: Thanks to two back-to-back wins over the Buffalo Sabres, the Bruins are now just one point shy of clinching the final playoff spot in the East Division. A win or OT loss tonight at 7 p.m. ET against the New Jersey Devils will seal the deal and send the B’s to their fifth consecutive postseason. We’re coming for you, Lord Stanley.

⚾️Red Sox: The Sox had a tough showing in Texas, falling 5–3 to the Rangers yesterday and dropping the series 3-1. They’re off today before heading back to Fenway for a three-game set with the Detroit Tigers, beginning tomorrow at 7:10 p.m. ET. Here’s hoping designated hitter J.D. Martinez can stay hot, especially against his old club.
