After a frustrating game 4 that saw the Sixers rip defeat from the jaws of victory, the Sixers Did it again. The blew a 26 point lead, were outscored in the 4th quarter 40-19, and ultimately lost 109-106. It was arguably the most epic collapse in Philadelphia sports playoff history. And this is after they had one hell of a collapse in game 4.

Two max players (Simmons and Harris) combined for 12 points. Harris especially has been invisible for 6 quarters. Ben Simmons free throw problems continued. In a nut shell, they gave the game away because no one other than Joel Embiid (37 points) and Seth Curry (36) gave you much. The Sixers bench combined for 13 points. And for a while that looked fine because the Sixers were up big. But the Hawks chipped away and ultimately took game 5

The Hawks now hold a commanding 3-2 series lead. Game 6 will be on Friday night at 7:30 and it can be heard on 97.5 the Fanatic
