Founded in the late 19th century (and only seven years apart from each other), the Atlanta Braves and the Philadelphia Phillies are two of the oldest and most celebrated teams in Major League Baseball. Both also currently compete in the National League’s East Division and boast multiple World Series wins to their names, with the Braves being the only team in the league to have won the World Series in three different home cities.

Fans are undoubtedly excited to see these two iconic MLB teams face off tonight, with the four-game series taking place at the Phillies’ home city of Philadelphia at Citizens Bank Park stadium. Neither team had a particularly stellar run in 2019, though: Although the Braves finished first in their division and advanced to the National League Division Series, they ended up being eliminated 3-2 by the St. Louis Cardinals. The Phillies, on the other hand, had a much rougher time of 2019 despite a strong start, finishing fourth in the division and getting eliminated on September 24. Following this, the team secured a new manager, Joe Girardi, who is leading them into the 2020 season.


Both teams will understandably be looking to get a strong footing early, as the momentum established now could carry them through the shortened 60-game season. The Braves are already off to a pretty good start this year but the Phillies have struggled a bit to gain much traction so far. Fans will know soon whether or not the home team advantage will prove to be enough to give the Phillies the edge over the visiting Braves.

How to watch the Netflix Slam: Rafael Nadal vs. Carlos Alcaraz
Rafael Nadal and Carlos Alcaraz set up for a tennis shot in the Netflix Slam.

Rafael Nadal and Carlos Alcaraz, two of the best tennis players in the world, will face off in the inaugural Netflix Slam. The tennis exhibition match will stream live on Netflix. This is the fourth matchup between the Spaniards, with Nadal holding a 2-1 lead. Their last meeting came at the 2022 ATP Masters 1000 Madrid, a match won by Alcaraz.

Nadal remains a legendary figure in tennis. The 22-time Grand Slam champion battled leg injuries for most of the 2023 season, causing him to miss important tournaments like the French Open and Wimbledon. Nadal, 37, is the healthiest he's been in two years as he tries to wrap up his iconic career with a few more wins. While Nadal is staring down retirement, Alcaraz is just getting started. The 20-year-old is already a two-time Grand Slam winner, with his last major coming at Wimbledon in 2023. Both players will use The Netflix Slam as a tune-up for next week's BNP Paribas Open at Indian Wells.

The second half of the NBA season is underway. The rivalry between Boston and New York heats up on Saturday night when the Celtics take on the Knicks inside Madison Square Garden. The Celtics and Knicks are two of the four best teams in the Eastern Conference, meaning this game could be a potential playoff preview.

The Celtics are the best team in the East by a wide margin, seven games to be exact. With a record of 44-12, the Celtics can run the table, reach 60 wins, and secure the No. 1 seed in the postseason. The Knicks, who are fourth with a 34-22 record, are trying to string together a few wins while waiting for three of their best players – Mitchell Robinson, OG Anunoby, and Julius Randle – to return from injury sometime next month.
