🏀Sixers: He may have lost the league MVP title, but Joel Embiid was our MVP in the Sixers’ 118–102 win over the Atlanta Hawks on Tuesday. He dominated the game, scoring 40 points and snagging 13 rebounds. Torn meniscus? We don’t know her.

  • The entire squad was firing, with Tobias Harris, Seth Curry and young gun Shake Milton scoring 22, 21 and 14 respectively. Yessirs.
  • Defensively, Ben Simmons and Matisse Thybulle held Hawks star Trae Young to 21 points, the least he’s scored in the playoffs. If the Sixers can keep up Tuesday’s dominance, Game 3 is in the bag. Tip off’s tomorrow at 7:30 p.m. ET.

⚾️Phillies: After eight and two-thirds innings without a run, utility player Luke Williams, who was only called up to the big leagues on Tuesday (!!!), hit a two-run walk-off home run to give the Phillies the 2–1 win over the Atlanta Braves last night. Welcome to the show, Luke!

🏐Volleyball: Two former Penn State women’s volleyball standouts were named to Team USA’s 12-person Olympic roster. Micha Hancock and Haleigh Washington were both part of the 2014 national championship team and will now help the U.S. chase their first-ever indoor gold.
