Las Vegas native Bryce Harper hit a two-run homer in the third inning and a game-ending, three-run drive with two outs in the ninth, leading the Washington Nationals over the Philadelphia Phillies 6-4 on Sunday.

The 51s defeated the River Cats, 6-4, for their third straight victory in game two of the three-game series, before a Easter Sunday crowd of 3,226 at Cashman Field.

The top seeds opened their NBA playoff schedule on Sunday.

The Golden State Warriors pulled out a victory against Portland, but the Chicago Bulls pulled off the day's biggest surprise by winning at Boston.

Isaiah Thomas managed to play just a day after his sister was killed in a car accident, but his emotional performance couldn't stop the Celtics from falling to the Bulls, 106-102.

Thomas received a thunderous ovation and finished with a game-high 33 points after deciding to play.
