This Week for the USWNT, Sixers, and Flyers

โšฝ๏ธUSWNT: As if two FIFA World Cups and two Olympic gold medals werenโ€™t enough, Phillyโ€™s beloved Carli Lloyd returned to the pitch earlier this year โ€” for what might be her last run with the USWNT โ€” after a knee surgery and 10-month break, and looked good doing it. 

  • Now, Lloyd is joining the team in Orlando for the SheBelieves Cup, but her focus is dead-set on earning an Olympic roster spot. We canโ€™t wait to watch her show the up-and-comers that this vet's still got the moves

๐Ÿ€Sixers: The Sixers snapped their three-game losing streak last night when they beat the Houston Rockets 118โ€“113. Forward Ben Simmons missed the game due to the stomach flu, but Joel โ€œheadband Joโ€ Embiid, point guard Seth Curry and forward Tobias Harris all stepped up and drained over 20 points each to lead the team to victory. Itโ€™s called depth, look it up. 

๐Ÿ’Flyers: Missing the Flyers but missing Gritty more? Same, same. Thankfully, after nearly two weeks missed due to positive COVID-19 cases, Philadelphia hockey is back and facing off against the New York Rangers tonight at 7 p.m. ET.
