The Nets are on the brink of elimination.
After a dominating Game 3 win win Ben Simmons crushing, Game 4 was a much different story. To start, it was chippier by a long shot. First off, there was a scrum on one end of the court that saw Jared Dudley and Jimmy Butler both ejected.
But the drama on the court heightened late in the game. After Joe Harris gave the Nets the lead on a lay-up, Mike Scott won the game on a corner 3 for a 112-108 Game 4 victory.

But his IG post after the game should be the team’s motto.
That is a mood.
There’s no game tonight, both teams get back after it tomorrow night for Game 5. Feels long, but I’ll take it. Toronto has a 3-1 lead on Orlando so it looks like we’ll play the Raptors if everything holds up.
With that, enjoy Joel Embiid’s voice in a Earth-friendly Lil Dicky video.

While the Sixers had a good weekend, the Phillies were nowhere near close to that. They lost three of their four games in Colorado, including one of a Charlie Blackmon walk-off homer on Friday. Cesar Hernandez didn’t have the best of games either on Sunday.
Plus, Scott Kingery and Jean Segura are now on the injured list. So that’s fun. They’ll pick things up.
Team’s back out east later tonight as they take on the Mets at 7:10 PM on NBC Sports Philadelphia. Jake Arrieta faces off against Steven Matz.
It’s been a weekend for the Flyers as well, mainly off the ice at Xfinity Live. After the Yankees dropped Kate Smith, the Flyers dropped her rendition of “God Bless America” (which wasn’t played at all last season) and covered up her statue. Some guy wasn’t happy about the decision and decided to spend time to put signs on it.
Well that statue is now gone.

There you go.
Donovan McNabb thinks the Eagles should get rid of Carson Wentz is he can’t get the Eagles past the second round of the playoffs because of his health. Lane Johnson didn’t like that and ripped on McNabb.
Speaking of Eagle quarterbacks, Jaguars owner Shad Khan dreamed about getting Nick Foles. Well now he has him. Good for him, dreams do come true.
