When the series started early on last week, the Sixers found themselves in a challenging position as their star center Joel Embiid wasn’t available due to an orbital fracture and a concussion.
Without Embiid, the Sixers struggled and found themselves falling short in back-to-back matchups to open the series. With an 0-2 start, the 76ers were fortunate to go home and play in front of their home crowd for the first time.
In Games 3 and 4, the Sixers turned things around. With back-to-back victories, the Sixers tied the series up before it went back to Miami on Tuesday night.
Even with a healthy squad, the Sixers couldn’t take down the Heat in Miami. In fact, they took on their toughest loss of the postseason as they fell short by almost 40 points. With that loss, the Sixers are in a tough spot, as losing Game 6 at home would end their playoff run.
However, the Sixers could force Game 7 in Miami this upcoming weekend with a win. Plan on tuning in to watch the Sixers and the Heat battle it out for Game 6? Here’s everything you need to know!
