See what Andrew Salciunas played in The Audio Vault today. Every day Andrew dives in the Vault, to put together a collection of audio to play on The Anthony Gargano show at 11 o’clock. And today, it was all about the game 4 win for the Sixers.

After winning game 1 in Boston, the Sixers dropped 2 straight. Including a blowout loss in game 2. Their backs were against the wall, and they were in danger of going back to Boston down 3-1. And for much of the 4th quarter, it looked like that would happen. The Celtics were dominating them in the 4th. Embiid was clearly tired and struggling to score. And besides Harden, no one was stepping up around him.

But the Sixers tied it up to force Overtime. And then in Overtime, they were trailing again, but Harden played hero again hitting a 3 to take the lead, and give the Sixers the lead. So now they head back to Boston with the series tied up 2-2.
