May 13, 1999:
My father and I made the ride down to Philly to see the #6 seed Philadelphia 76ers take on the #3 seed Orlando Magic in game three of their first-round series. The teams split the first two in Orlando. That night, Allen Iverson exploded all over the Magic
, setting a playoff record with 10 steals, and the FU Center was absolutely electric for the entire 48 minutes. I'll be making the trek down to the Wach tomorrow, hopefully to see history repeat itself. Who else is going to be there?
If you're going to be at the game, I'll be in section 103, row 14. I'm not sure if I'll be there before the tip, but at halftime we should definitely plan to meet up outside of Finnegans, between section 104 and 105.
If you aren't going yet, there are plenty of tickets available on Sixers.com, it would really be a shame if they didn't have a big crowd for this game. The team needs a real home court advantage.
So if you'll be there, let me know in the comments. Huge game, gotta have it.
