This past Sunday afternoon, the Sixers hosted a playoff game for the first time since the 2018-2019 season.
For George Hill, it allowed him to have the opportunity to fulfill a wish of playing for thousands of screaming Sixers fans in the postseason. On Tuesday afternoon, the veteran guard detailed just how exciting and eventful his first playoff game in a Sixers uniform was on Sunday. “No one knows how big our fans matter until they’re not there. This is one place that I always wanted to be in, see the fans, and be a part of. I got to do that the other night. Even though it wasn’t packed all the way, it was a lot more than what we’re used to, and we’re going to rely on that here throughout the playoffs.”
To no surprise, Sixers fans lived up to the expectations on Sunday.
