Despite having a 2-1 lead in the series over the Atlanta Hawks heading into Game 4, the Sixers failed to close out two potential blowout victories.
With double-digit leads in both, Game 4 and 5, the Sixers allowed the Hawks to not only creep back into both games but come out on top and win two straight. As the Sixers had to rely on bench players to keep the team in the game, another unlikely hero helped the team keep it close before halftime. When the second half rolled around, Tobias Harris and Seth Curry did their part in helping the Sixers acquire a lead. Although the game came all the way down to the wire, the Sixers snuck out of Atlanta with a Game 6 victory by winning 104-99.
Now, the 76ers and the Hawks will meet for the final time on Sunday night in a crucial Game 7 matchup in South Philly.
