Basketball

๐Ÿ’Pride: As we mentioned earlier, the Pride earned their second Isobel Cup with a thrilling 4โ€“3 win over the Minnesota Whitecaps on Saturday. And they did it at home, as the league moved the semis and finals to Bostonโ€™s Warrior Ice Arena following the abrupt season suspension in Lake Placid last month. Love that dirty water.

  • Former Harvard star Jillian Dempsey was named Isobel Cup MVP and the Pride became the first team to win the Isobel Cup twice. And all that hardware had people taking notice, including Congresswoman Ayanna Pressley. So here for this crossover.

๐Ÿ€Celtics: The Cโ€™s made some moves ahead of last weekโ€™s NBA trade deadline. Most notably, former Orlando Magic guard Evan Fournier (along with his career-high 19.7 points per game) is headed to the Hub. Fournier is currently out due to COVID-19 protocols, but we canโ€™t wait to see him bring some magic to Boston.

  • There were also some goodbyes, including fan favorite Daniel Theis, who played in two consecutive Eastern Conference semifinals with the Cโ€™s. Thanks for the memories
  • The Celtics return to the Garden tonight at 7:30 p.m. ET to take on the New Orleans Pelicans in the Cโ€™s first game with a home crowd since March 2020. We missed you too, Jayson.
