Embiid has 39, powers 76ers past Nets in overtime, 112-104

A few weeks before the All-Star break, Joel Embiid said he wasn't having much fun on the basketball floor this season. Embiid was back to his old self Thursday night, flapping his arms to the crowd, smiling from ear to ear and taking over a game at critical moments. Embiid had 39 points and 16 rebounds, Alec Burks and Shake Milton added big baskets in overtime and the Philadelphia 76ers extended their dominance at home with a 112-104 victory over the Brooklyn Nets.

Allen Iverson tears up remembering his friend Kobe and the one time they played as teammates

Philadelphia 76ers legend Allen Iverson has shown his softer side since retiring from the NBA in 2010. Whether he's talking about the current Sixers squad being his "little dudes" or his old rivals like Ty Lue, A.I. never has a bad word to say. The Players' Tribune did a nice sitdown with Iverson over All-Star weekend and it's making the rounds again today thanks an ESPN bump.

Midwest, Northeast to feel like spring again, after winter's brief visit

The cold weather settling into the Midwest and Northeast this week would normally go unnoticed by the second half of February, but amid this winter's unusually mild weather, it stands out and still commands some respect for those who must work or spend time walking outdoors for any length of time.The leading edge of Arctic air produced snow squalls, gusty winds and blowing snow in the Montreal area on Wednesday morning, which were a factor in a fatal 200-vehicle pileup. Squalls associated wi...

Additionally, one general manager is standing by his goalie while another went out to acquire one in the buildup to the trade deadline, and an NCAA goalie is on a historic hot streak.

NFL trade rumors: Why Stefon Diggs makes sense for the Eagles

On Tuesday night, receiver Stefon Diggs sent the internet into a tizzy when he apparently erased any mention of the Vikings from his Instagram account. Before all those rumors began to swirl on Tuesday night, I was on NBC Sports Philadelphia's Quick Slants and was asked for one potential trade target for the Birds. The name I gave was Diggs.

Kids in Philly are part of a crazy new fad: learning typewriting?

A typewriter shop in Philadelphia is holding classes for kids -- and they're showing up! Manual typewriting has been enjoying something of a comeback in the past decade or so, but I wouldn't have expected kids to be into it. As one girl in the video explains, she likes how typewriting forces you to focus on what you're writing because you won't be able to easily fix your mistakes. The pendulum swings, I guess. One of the things that was so freeing about digital word processing was the ease w...

They have seemingly hit their stride, going 8-1-0 since the All-Star break.

This fact alone suggests the Bruins are hitting their stride at the p...

Jenny Offill talks ‘Weather,’ climate change and presidential elections ahead of Los Angeles book event

Jenny Offill spent years paring down her new novel “Weather” into short powerful fragments saturated with meaning, emotion and humor. Offill said she aimed to write sudden flurries of action followed by quieter sections to mimic the changes in the weather. “I was thinking how people say that a novel is atmospheric — and I was like, well, what would that look like if it was really atmospheric?” said the author, who will be coming to Skylight Books in Los Angeles on Wednesday, Feb. 19. “And then a...

4 Bruins’ Additional Trade Targets — Forwards

One possible trade target for the Boston Bruins and general manager Don Sweeney can be crossed off their wishlist. Right wing Tyler Toffoli was traded from the Los Angeles Kings to the Vancouver Canucks Monday night. If there is a silver lining for the Bruins, it’s that the skilled forward is staying in the Western Conference and not making a move East to one of its conference rivals.

Thoughts Before The Trade Deadline

from Elliotte Friedman of Sportsnet, - It might come down to Nolan Patrick’s health, but I think Philadelphia is considering Jeff Carter. - I do think Colorado checked out Corey Crawford. But Robin Lehner’s future ties into Chicago’s decision. Lehner’s performance during Chicago’s 5-3 loss to Edmonton raised eyebrows. Not because he was bad or anything, but because he was “quiet.” Lehner plays a “loud” game, both in terms of his voice and activity. The Blackhawks and his representativ...

Flyers’ Giroux Hits 800-Point Milestone

The year was 2006. The Philadelphia Flyers had the 22nd overall pick in the NHL Draft. The last time the organization had that selection was in 1998 when the Flyers drafted Simon Gagne, who had an impressive NHL career. The general manager in 2006 was Bobby Clarke, who wanted to add a high-powered forward to the organization, and with that first-round pick, he selected Claude Giroux from the Gatineau Olympiques of the Quebec Major Junior Hockey League. Giroux had been tearing it up in the QM...

A Look Back: Rod Brind’Amour Started Carolina’s ‘Storm Surge’

This article was originally published in February, 2013. To get a number retired in the National Hockey League is a special honor, one that is typically reserved for a unique kind of player. It doesn’t necessarily mean that the honoree was winner, but rather that he did something important to either put his team on the map or help make it stand out. Rod Brind’Amour did both for the Carolina Hurricanes, which is why in 2011 the team retired his No. 17 – fittingly, in a game against the Phil...

This 1849 guidebook was a Yelp for whorehouses

Philadelphia had many "gay houses" and "ladies of pleasure" in the 1840s, so it's not surprising that an enterprising publisher created a guidebook for travelers to the city "of brotherly love and sisterly affection," which was estimated to employ 10,000 sex workers at the time. Flashbak has some highlights from the "pocket companion." At this house you will hear no disgusting language to annoy your ear; everything connected with this establishment is calculated to make a man happy. The young la...
