WHO: Meek Mill

VENUE: Game 3, Eastern Conference semifinals; Wells Fargo Center.

WHHW: Not exactly the best birthday gift for Meek Mill — he turns 31 on Sunday. Mill’s hometown 76ers dropped the most pivotal game of the series, falling 101-98 in overtime to the Boston Celtics. Instead of trimming the series to 2-1, with what would have been a critical Game 4 on Monday, the Sixers are on the brink of elimination. Director M. Night Shyamalan as well as Questlove were also in the building. It’s not all bad for Meek, though. His in-depth Dateline NBC interview airs Sunday at 7 p.m. EDT.
