Philadelphia:  Onto the next one for the Sixers
Source: Sixers/

🏀Sixers: The first half of last night’s Game 5 had us sweating, but after the 76ers’ 38-point (!!!) third quarter, we breathed a little easier. The Sixers were smooth sailing from there, winning 129–112 to clinch the series. HYFR.

  • As mentioned, the win came without All-Star Joel Embiid, who suffered a meniscus tear on Monday. While he doesn’t need surgery, it’s unclear how soon he’ll be game ready, so the extra rest before their next series is very welcome.
  • Speaking of, Philly will now face the Atlanta Hawks, who also won their first-round series 4-1 over the NY Knicks. We’re looking at you, Trae.

⚾️Phillies: After the Phils’ hitters had a feeding frenzy, scoring 17 runs in their win over the Cincinnati Reds on Tuesday, the final game of the series was postponed due to weather yesterday. We really wanted to see Rhys Hoskins extend his hitting streak to 11 games. Sigh.

⚽️Union: The Union went out with a bang, beating the Portland Timbers 3–0 on Sunday in their last game before the MLS break. The DOOP is OOO.
