๐Ÿ€NBA: The Knicks, who are now fourth in the Eastern Conference, earned their ninth straight win (!!!) on Saturday, beating the Toronto Raptors 120โ€“103. Julius Randle has put the team on his back, scoring 30 points or more in six of the last seven games. Youโ€™re right, LeBron, weโ€™re all better off when the Knicks are winning. 

  • Meanwhile in Brooklyn, the Nets have risen to the top of the Eastern Conference thanks to the return of Kevin Durant and a 128โ€“119 win over the Suns yesterday. Get ready, New York, this postseason is going to be fun. 

โšพ๏ธMLB: The Mets capped off their 2-1 series win over the Washington Nationals with a 4โ€“0 victory yesterday. The highlight? The Metsโ€™ defense and strength from the mound โ€” pitcher Jacob deGrom threw a career-high 15 strikeouts in Fridayโ€™s win, and Taijuan Walker threw seven scoreless innings yesterday. LFGM!

At the same time, the Yankees missed out on a sweep of Cleveland, losing 7โ€“3 in the teamsโ€™ fourth straight meeting yesterday. The Yanksโ€™ pitching continues to struggle, but at least the defense is laying it all out there.
