The Sixers did it again. They blew a MASSIVE lead, it led to an EPIC collapse. Here are the keys to victory in game 6. If the Sixers follow these steps then were playing the song and were coming back to Philly for game 7.
The Sixers depth was supposed to be a strength for the team. But in the 3 losses this series they havent given you much. The bench gave you a combined 13 points (Lou Williams had 15 for perspective.) They have to give you SOMETHING
This isnt even about the foul shooting. I need AGGRESSIVE Ben Simmons. Agressive Ben that is playing down hill and attacking the rim. If he misses the free throws then that's fine AS LONG AS he is getting someone from the Hawks starting 5 in foul trouble. Ive accepted the fact that hes going to struggle at the line. But Simmons still needs to ATTACK and not be a bystander.
Ben Simmons is in the cross hairs, but right there with him is Tobias Harris. The highest paid player on the team has been missing for the past 6 quarters. He gave you a stat line of 4/4/3. That is unacceptable. Tobias Harris needs to give you what weve come to expect. 20+ points
This one is really simple. Do what you did for the first 3 quarters. but then do it for another. But jump out to an early lead and try and take the crowd out of it. And takeaway the Hawks momentum.
Just dont do it. It might be tempting, but dont.
