Tesla Model S and Model X ranges get big upgrades
Tesla is giving its Model S and Model X cars much-needed boosts — just as its older offerings have seen sales languish. Range and charging capabilities will be upgraded in both, the carmaker announced in a blog post Tuesday. Tesla is also bringing back a cheaper version of the cars that don't have as much range. The new Model S can now get 370 miles on a single charge, while the Model X steps up to 325 miles thanks to an all-new drivetrain design. Previously, these cars got 335 miles and 295 miles out of their batteries, respectively. The cars will be slightly less-expensive than what used to be Tesla's longest-range options: starting at $88,000 for the S and $93,000 for the X. These upgrades come with no changes to the cars' 100 kWh battery packs. The improvements will start at its Fremont factory this week.  Read more...More about Tech, Transportation, Tesla, Model X, and Model S

The Nets-Sixers series ended with the most pointless beef
In the final minutes, Jonah Bolden, Rodions Kurucs, Greg Monroe and Dzanan Musa were ejected. Yep. The unnecessarily dramatic Nets-Sixers first-round NBA playoff series is over, and it could not have ended on a more on-brand note. A series that revved up when a 33-year-old veteran triggered an arms war with a mundane (and accurate) statement about a 22-year-old All-Star finished with the most ridiculous four-player ejection in the final minutes of Philly’s 22-point series-clinching win. Tangled up under the rim, Sixers reserve Jonah Bolden and Nets rookie Rodions Kurucs wouldn’t let go. The two went face-to-face and tested referee Brian Forte’s box-out abilities to separate them. It worked and it didn’t, as the two players reunited for one last bout of unsavory words that absolutely couldn’t have mattered less. Kurucs and Bolden acting tough but don't really want to fight each other pic.twitter.com/r1DGLSn1rJ— gifdsports (@gifdsports) April 24, 2019 Somehow, both Sixers big man Greg Monroe and Nets rookie Dzanan Musa, who came into the night having played 10 minutes in the series, were also booted. What a glorious ending to a series so hilariously theatrical, it was tough to take seriously. This beef was always overcooked without marinade. The Sixers blew out the Nets in Game 5 to take the series, 122-100, and the game wasn’t really that close. Seriously, the Sixers started off with a 23-2 lead. What does this mean for the future? I guess — long lasting beef? Philly sports fans won’t forget this, and ex-Knicks fans-turned Nets fans won’t either, unless their landlord raises the rent and they move back to a forced triple in midtown. (This may or may not be the case for several people I know.) But a Ben Simmons vs. Jared Dudley feud feels so silly. I mean, Joel Embiid has already called him a nobody. .@JoelEmbiid speaks with @ROSGO21 after the @sixers go up 3-1 in the series! #HereTheyCome | #NBAPlayoffs pic.twitter.com/YrIgC7LHwF— NBA on TNT (@NBAonTNT) April 20, 2019 Oddly, the overdone drama that was Philly-Brooklyn made this series bearable, so stay thankful for that. But if it re-ignites next season, it better get spicier than a Kurucs-Bolden face-off.
