๐Ÿ€Sixers: The 76ers added a fourth straight loss to their record on Saturday, slipping into second place in the Eastern Conference. Philly missed Ben Simmons โ€” whoโ€™s been sidelined in all four losses due to illness โ€” and Joel Embiid due to shoulder injury, but thankfully, both should return soon. 

  • The slip isnโ€™t cause for panic...yet. The Sixers have the easiest remaining schedule in the league, so hopefully they can catch back up to those pesky Brooklyn gnats Nets.

โšพ๏ธPhillies: After splitting their first two games against the Colorado Rockies, the Phillies were off to a great start when Bryce Harper crushed a 468-foot (!!!) homer to give the squad a 2โ€“0 lead. 

  • Then the Rockiesโ€™ bats got hot, scoring 10 runs in three innings to beat the Phils 12โ€“2. At least we had the Phanaticโ€™s anniversary to celebrate. 

๐Ÿ’This weekโ€™s highlight: ICYMI, Flyers left winger James van Riemsdyk had an interesting stat line on Thursday when he scored a goal thanks to a deflection off his...face? To make it even better, van Riemsdyk returned to the ice after seeking medical care to score another goal in the Flyersโ€™ 3โ€“2 win over the NY Rangers. Thatโ€™s some grit.
