Our Philadelphia 76ers play a huge game Friday in Atlanta against the Trae Young led Hawks.  A basketball team that has taken advantage of the Sixers deficiencies and overcome double digit deficits to take a 3-2 lead in the best-of-seven series.  Ben Simmons, Tobias Harris and Joel Embiid are the big three stars of the 76ers have failed in the fourth quarter in back-to-back games to put away the Hawks by missing foul shots, dunks and not playing smart basketball.  It's very frustrating to watch the Sixers take a commanding lead only to give it away!  For the Sixers to lose the way they have dropped the last two games in heartbreaking fashion might be too much of a mountain to climb and overcome.  Frustration, confidence, blame and character will all play a pivotal role in the outcome of Friday Night's Game 6 in Atlanta which you can listen to at 730pm with Tom McGinnis on the call on 973 ESPN Atlantic City. 

Even though the Phillies are 7-3 in their last 10 games they head to San Francisco starting Friday Night to face the NL West First Place Giants. The Giants, led by former Phillies manager Gabe Kapler, are playing great baseball with the best record in the majors at 44-25.  But if you want to watch the games this weekend, you have to stream it on the Peacock App!?!
