 ๐Ÿ€Knicks: The Knicks lost Game 1 to the Atlanta Hawks yesterday, falling 107โ€“105 in a game that kept us on the edge of our seats. The fans in Madison Square Garden started the night by booing Trae Young, who went on to score 32 points, including the last bucket of the game. Were the jeers worth it? Weโ€™re not so sure.

  • The highlight? A healthy Alec Burks, who led the team with 27 points to keep New York in the game, as the usual high-scoring duo of Julius Randle and RJ Barrett combined for just 29. One game down, four wins to go. Catch Game 2 on Wednesday at 7:30 p.m. ET. 

๐Ÿ€Nets: The Nets beat the Boston Celtics 104โ€“93 in Game 1 on Saturday. Though the Netsโ€™ offense started out slow, the Big 3 stepped it up in the second half: Kevin Durant ended the game with 32 points, while Kyrie Irving added 29 and James Harden scored 21. HYFR. After that warm up win, we canโ€™t wait for Game 2 tomorrow at 7:30 p.m. ET. 

๐Ÿ’Islanders: After a close 5โ€“4 Game 3 loss on Thursday, the Islanders tied up the series with a dominant 4โ€“1 win over the Pittsburgh Penguins on Saturday. The Isles scored first and controlled the rest of the game with their pace and style. They also had some familiar faces cheering them on at the Coliseum. Hilarious. 

๐Ÿ”ขBox scores: โšพ๏ธ Yankees won 5โ€“4 yesterday to complete their sweep of the Chicago White Sox; โšพ๏ธ Mets lost 5โ€“1 to the Miami Marlins yesterday; ๐Ÿ€ Liberty beat the Chicago Sky 93โ€“85 yesterday; โšฝ๏ธ Gotham FC drew 0โ€“0 with the Chicago Red Stars on Saturday.
