🏀Knicks: The Knicks ended their season in the Garden with a hard-fought 103–89 loss to the Atlanta Hawks last night. Julius Randle and RJ Barrett gave it all they got, scoring 23 and 17 points, respectively, but just couldn’t overcome the Hawks’ third-quarter lead. 

  • Throughout the series, New York was often coming from behind, and TBH, the team just looked...tired. Not gonna lie, it stings losing to this kid.  

🏀Nets: The Nets secured a second-round appearance after beating the Boston Celtics 123–109 in Tuesday’s Game 5, and the team looked better than ever. Next up, the Nets will face the Milwaukee Bucks, whose Midwestern fans will hopefully be a bit more...civilized? Game 1’s on Saturday at 7:30 p.m. ET. 

🏒Islanders: After taking Game 2 in overtime on Tuesday, the Islanders’ series with the Boston Bruins is all tied up. Although the Isles took a few hits, they also made the most of the opportunities they were given. Game 3 is tonight at 7:30 p.m. ET. 

⚾️MLB: The Yankees beat the Tampa Bay Rays 4–3 while the Mets won their series finale against the Arizona Diamondbacks 7–6 yesterday. Getting dubs from the Bronx all the way to Queens.

🏀⚽️What to watch: Both the Liberty and Gotham FC play this weekend. Sabrina Ionescu and crew take the court tonight at 7 p.m. ET, while Carli Lloyd’s squad kicks off on Saturday at 7 p.m. ET. Let’s get in formation.
