“We gave them life from Game 1,” said Harris. “You gotta give them credit too because they took it. It’s a young, hungry team, a tough matchup team as well, but Game 1 they came in here from the jump and was ready.”
The Sixers had a chance late in the game, but Simmons passed up an easy wide-open dunk to a streaking Matisse Thybulle who made one of the two free throws before the Hawks scored on the other end.
“I mean yeah, definitely. It’s Game 7,” said Simmons.
“I think throughout the series we had those two games with the big leads that we let slip and they took advantage of that,” Harris finished.
