|This game. This series. This season. This era of Sixers basketball. I feel like it might have all come to an end tonight with Rajon Rondo hitting a pair of jump shots he has no business even taking. Thanks to the Sixers for putting up one hell of a fight. Sorry it had to end.|
|Cartier Martin. Austin Daye. Ray Allen. John Wall. Kevin Love. Tony Parker. Dirk Nowitzki. Kevin Garnett. Each of those names, and several others, represents a heart-breaking loss the Sixers suffered over the past couple seasons. Each of those losses was a lesson. A lesson that has prepared the Sixers for these playoffs. For this game. Now it's time to go out there and take it.|
|Do or die, part one. The Sixers did. On a night when the Sixers went through just a gruesome lull on the offensive end, they put together 48 minutes of the toughest defense you'll ever see to put the Celtics to bed 82-75 and send the series back to Boston for a decisive game seven. (game capsule)|
|The Sixers will face their first actual elimination game tonight at 8pm. They've had a couple of must-wins (game 6 vs. Chicago, game 4 vs. Boston) but tonight is the first time their season will end if they don't win. To this point, they haven't lost consecutive games in the playoffs, 4-0 after losses. Boston wants to end this, the Sixers want the run to continue. Who wants it more?|
|Doug Collins adjusted to and exploited Boston's small lineup in game four with Lavoy Allen and Thad Young. In game five, Doc Rivers took a look at the Sixers roster and realized going small was doing them a favor, so he went bigger. The Sixers weathered the size disadvantage for 24 minutes, then collapsed. 3-2, Boston, heading back to Philly for game 6. (game capsule).|

|The game four miracle comeback was inspiring, but all the Sixers really accomplished was getting the series back on track. Being the lower seed, they should be tied 2-2 after four games, and the home team still has a big advantage with two of the final three being on their floor. Win tonight, however, and the Sixers will put themselves in the driver's seat. Come out with the energy they ended game four with, and the Celtics will start to realize exactly how old they are. It's time to kick them, before they get back up.|
Latest comment: from JesseHaha. Ok? I was right about the sun rising this morning. I'll be right about Lavoy Allen....
|They wouldn't be the Sixers if they didn't kick you in the behind just when you started to give up hope. In what had to be the most improbable comeback of my lifetime, the Sixers took a 14-0 start and spat it out. They took a horrific ending to the first half that saw them trailing by 15 and laughed it off. They took an 18-point, third-quarter deficit and gave it the finger. They simply would not be denied. They simply would not quit when everything and everyone said they should. (game capsule).|

|Let's cut right through it. If the Sixers lose this game, their season is over. There's no way they're coming back from a 3-1 deficit with two of the remaining games left to be played in Boston. More importantly, if they get outworked by the Celts like that again, the end couldn't possibly come soon enough. If they want this ride to continue, if they want any prayer of making the ECF, tonight is going to have to be a win.|

|They just wouldn't be the Sixers if they didn't kick you in the face just when you were starting to believe. The only question after tonight's drubbing at the hands of the Celtics is whether the sky is falling, or if it has already fallen. The only guys who can answer that question are the Sixers players, and they won't get a chance to answer it until they take the floor on Friday night. (game capsule).|
