June 11th, 2021 features a pair of Game 3’s as Joel Embiid leads the 76ers into Atlanta to face off against the Hawks where both teams seek a 2-1 series lead with ATL currently owning a NBA-best 13-game active home win streak. MVP Nikola Jokic and the Nuggets look to win a much-needed Game 3 in order to prevent going down 0-3 to the Suns. MLB’s full slate of games is highlighted by a pitcher’s duel between former Cy Young winners, Blake Snell and Jacob deGrom when the Padres take on the Mets. Minicamp has started around the NFL, which means quarterback battles have begun for many teams.
