Click for full story. 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?

Click for full story. 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).

Click for full story. 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.

Click for full story. 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).

Click for full story. 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.

Click for full story. 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).

Click for full story. First step for a lower seed in a seven game series: Split the first two on the road. Second step: Take game three. Third step: let's not get ahead of ourselves. The Sixers took one of two in Boston, now they need to take care of their home floor. Tonight, the Celitcs will look to take home court advantage back and send a message to the Sixers. That's the narrative they'd like to follow. I've got something different in mind.

Click for full story. The Sixers and Celtics have been engaged in a fierce battle through these first two games. Both teams have escaped mostly unscathed as far as injuries go. Elton Brand is nursing a shoulder/neck problem from the Chicago series. Avery Bradley left game two with a shoulder problem. Thad Young tweaked an ankle. Ray Allen and Paul Pierce have both been dealing with leg issues. Injuries alone don't tell the whole story of the toll the Celtics have paid.

Click for full story. This is why we watch playoff basketball. The highs, the lows, the growth, the guts...Just an amazing, amazing display of intestinal fortitude by the Sixers tonight in taking home court advantage away from the Boston Celtics, 82-81. A huge win, and a big first step. Meaningless, though, without the next three. Don't get too high, don't get too low. (game capsule).

Click for full story. Lost amid the hysteria of Derrick Rose's injury in round one was a significant change Doug Collins made prior to game two. If you recall, Rose didn't really kill the Sixers in that opening loss, he scored an inefficient 23 points. Rip Hamilton and Kyle Korver killed the Sixers by running through a series of screens. That play didn't hurt the Sixers again after the first game. The Sixers adjustments made Kyle Korver a complete non-factor and had Rip looking elsewhere for offensive opportunities. What adjustments will we see tonight?

Click for full story. This is going to be more of a war than a series. The first battle went to the Celtics tonight. The Sixers blew an opportunity to steal game one on the road, but this is far from a death knell. This was the Sixers setting the tone and showing the Celtics they're in for a fight. This was also 36 minutes for Kevin Garnett, 39 minutes for Paul Pierce and 40 minutes for Rajon Rondo, to hold serve. As the road team, you want to split the first two games. It's just going to have to happen in game two. (game capsule)
