If I could write the script of tonight's game, this is the one Elton Brand would bring home. We've seen him struggle at times this year. We've heard him talk about saving himself. We've also seen him come to life and completely carry the team on both ends of the floor. If Chicago goes small tonight in Noah's absence, I'd like to see Brand punish them for it.
Ultimately, though, I don't really care how they get the win, just get it. Bury the Bulls tonight, on their home court, and get ready for whoever is next in line.
The tip is at 9:30pm on NBATV. This is your game thread. There's no place I'd rather be, join me to see the Sixers take care of business.
Prediction: Game 6 will not be needed.
