🏀Sixers: The 76ers beat the Boston Celtics 117–109 last night, regaining first place in the Eastern Conference in the process. Center Joel Embiid led with an impressive 42 points, followed by Tobias Harris with 22 and Shake Milton with 16. Is it too early for #EmbiidforMVPii?

  • Now that most players have returned from injuries, it feels like the team is starting to click. The Sixers will face the Celtics again tomorrow night at 7:30 p.m. ET. Ready for a repeat?

⚽️On the pitch: Sky Blue FC midfielder and Philly sweetheart Carli Lloyd assisted on two of the four goals in the USWNT’s win against Colombia in Monday’s friendly. 

  • This is Lloyd’s 16th year of professional soccer, and with five more appearances, the 38-year-old will become one of only six women in history to play in 300 international matches. Queen

🏒Flyers: At 3-1, the Flyers are off to a hot start. And while Gritty is formally allowed back into the stadium, we’ve heard he’s been spotted in other places, too. The Flyers are back at it again tonight against the 3-1 Boston Bruins at 7 p.m. ET.
