Phillies alone in first place for the first time since 2011
Philadelphia leads Atlanta by a half-game in the National League East. The Philadelphia Phillies beat the Toronto Blue Jays on Saturday, their 11th win in their last 15 games. At 29-20 they are in a position they haven’t seen in seven seasons: alone in first place atop the National League East. Philadelphia has quite a bit of young talent, augmented by free agent acquisitions Carlos Santana and Jake Arrieta his offseason looking to accelerate their rebuild after averaging 93 losses over the last five seasons. So far in 2018, it has worked. The Phillies have outscored their opponents by 40 runs through their 49 games, the third-best run differential in the NL, and coupled with the Braves’ loss to the Red Sox in Boston on Saturday now own a half-game lead over Atlanta (29-21), another young team on the rise in the East. This is the first time the Phillies have been alone in first place since the end of the 2011 season, when Philadelphia won 102 games in capturing their fifth consecutive NL East crown. Since the start of the 2012 season, the Phillies have only been even tied for first place on four different days before Friday: 2012: They started 1-0 2014: They started 1-0 2017: They started 1-0 2017: A win on April 9 put Philadelphia at 3-3, tied with three other teams Just gonna leave this here. #BeBold pic.twitter.com/8OscIovWyu— Philadelphia Phillies (@Phillies) May 26, 2018 @Phillies on TOP of the NL East......been a long time coming and I’m delighted to see it! Nick Williams went BEAST to center— Jimmy Rollins (@JimmyRollins11) May 26, 2018 There is still a lot of season to be played, but the Phillies at the very least are pointing up. It sure seems like a far cry from early April, when Philadelphia started 1-4 and the claws were out for new manager Gabe Kapler. The Phillies then started a homestand and took off. They are 19-8 at Citizens Bank Park this season, and their 28-16 run has them atop the division for the first time since the glory years. That will help quiet the critics.

Warriors’ Andre Iguodala will miss 3rd straight game vs. Rockets
Golden State will be without the fifth member of their Hamptons Five lineup during Game 6. The Golden State Warriors will be without the fifth member of their death lineup, AKA the Hamptons 5, for Game 6 against the Houston Rockets on Saturday. Andre Iguodala suffered a left lateral leg contusion during Game 3 earlier in this series, and he has missed all three games since the injury. Golden State is facing elimination, down three games to two, but they aren’t the only team hurt. Houston won’t have Chris Paul, who suffered a hamstring injury late in the Rockets’ Game 5 win. In positive news, Patrick McCaw will be active for the Warriors for the first time in about two months after a scary fall during a regular season game, although Warriors head coach Steve Kerr said “it would be tough” to throw him into a crucial game like this. For Iguodala, his injury occured when he collided with James Harden’s knee when Harden made a move towards the rim in Game 4. Here's the Andre Iguodala knee injury in slow mo, takes a powerful James Harden knee to the side of his left knee, grabs immediately pic.twitter.com/klIX7M8A2q— Anthony Slater (@anthonyVslater) May 21, 2018 Iguodala may be the lowest-profile player in a Warriors’ starting lineup that includes two-time MVP Stephen Curry; one-time MVP and four-time scoring champion Kevin Durant; the reigning Defensive Player of the Year Draymond Green; and of the league’s premier two-way wings Klay Thompson. But Iguodala’s versatility is paramount for a Golden State defense that prides itself on the ability to switch everything on screens. He also provides another playmaker on offense. Golden State has lost both games since Iguodala went down.

Egypt team doctor believes Mohamed Salah can play in the World Cup
Salah didn’t break anything and should have a chance to make it to Russia After Mohamed Salah went down with a shoulder injury in the Champions League final, fans feared the worse. The Egyptian attacker was in tears as he was hauled off, and everyone immediately started wondering whether he’d be able to suit up for his country at the World Cup. Thankfully, it looks like Salah has a chance to play for The Pharaohs in Russia. The Egyptian FA tweeted a statement from their team doctor, who had been in contact with Liverpool about the injury. تحديث | أفاد الدكتور محمد أبو العلا طبيب المنتخب أن الجهاز الطبي بنادي ليفربول قد ابلغوه بعد إجراء الآشعة على كتف صلاح وأفادت نتيجتها بأن اللاعب أصيب بجزع في أربطة مفصل الكتف وأضاف انه وفقا لهذا التشخيص عن تفاؤله بأن يلحق صلاح بالمنتخب الوطني في كأس العالم @MoSalah— Egypt National Football Team (@Pharaohs) May 26, 2018 The statement says that x-rays were negative, and that Egypt’s doctor believed that meant Salah could be fit in time for the World Cup. However, neither Liverpool or Egypt has released a full diagnosis or timetable for recovery. Egypt is in Group A, so they start their World Cup on the second day of the tournament. They kick off their campaign on Saturday, June 15, against Uruguay in Yekaterinburg. Egypt had an excellent qualifying campaign and could conceivably finish top-two in a weak group without Salah, but they’ll need their star healthy to do any better than that in Russia.

We've become normalized to Trump's tweets. Not this one.
Nowadays, it takes a lot for Americans to become incensed about Trump's tweets. We need at least one World War threat or nuclear weapon tangent to wake up and realize we're seconds away from doomsday. The President still has that magical ability to completely eviscerate our joy. Take Saturday's tweet, where Trump — in one of his worst lies yet — had the audacity to complain that Democrats were responsible for separating parents from their children at the border. SEE ALSO: Political nostalgia is always a lie, and a potent weapon "Put pressure on the Democrats to end the horrible law that separates children from there parents once they cross the Border into the U.S. Catch and Release, Lottery and Chain must also go with it and we MUST continue building the WALL! DEMOCRATS ARE PROTECTING MS-13 THUGS," Trump wrote. Read more...More about Watercooler, Immigration, Trump Tweets, Culture, and Politics

Rockets vs. Warriors: Golden State needs a win to stay alive
Houston leads best-of-7 series 3-2. The Houston Rockets are one victory away from their first NBA Finals trip in 23 years. To clinch that berth on Saturday night they have to beat the Golden State Warriors on the road in Game 6 of the Western Conference Finals (9 p.m. ET, TNT). Houston will be without the services of point guard Chris Paul, who suffered a hamstring strain in the final minute of on Thursday. Paul scored 18 of his 20 points in the second half of the Rockets’ Game 5 win, giving them a 3-2 series lead and just one win away from their first berth in the NBA Finals since winning the second of back-to-back championships in 1995. Golden State is 7-1 at Oracle Arena this postseason but that loss came in their last game there, on Tuesday to the Rockets, snapping an NBA-record 16-game playoff home winning streak. Houston (114.7) and Golden State (113.6) were first and third in the NBA, respectively, during the regular season in points per 100 possessions, but in the last two games of this series between offensive juggernauts have features scores of 95-92 and 98-94, both Rockets wins. That left Steph Curry perplexed, per the Associated Press: “I think (if you) guessed what the final score would be between the Rockets and Warriors, and neither team getting to 100 two straight games, don’t know what the odds (would be) on that,” he said. “Defense is high right now.” Warriors vs. Rockets Game 6 info Location: Oracle Arena, Oakland, Calif.
