Philadelphia (AP) -- Bones Hyland received a special gift from the Delaware firefighters and first responders who saved his life from a house fire in 2018 — a custom Wilmington Fire Department jacket — and Hyland took it and jumped with a wide smile into the stands to share the moment with some of his friends and family.

How many of Hyland's fans made the 30-mile trip north? He said maybe 600 or 700, and they could be heard cheering among the 21,000 mostly 76ers fans that packed the place Monday night.
