NBA Playoffs 2012, Celtics Vs. 76ers: Philadelphia Blows Chance In Game 5

The Philadelphia 76ers are the pleasant surprise of the 2012 NBA Playoffs, however, on Monday night in Game 5 against the Boston Celtics, the Sixers were an ugly surprise in a 101-85 loss at the TD Garden. The loss not only gave the Celtics a 3-2 lead in the best-of-seven series, it left a really bad taste in the mouths of the SB Nation blog Liberty Ballers.

I don't have words. They blew it. If they wanted a legitimate shot to prove the legitimacy of their season and win this series, they had the opportunity in the palm of their hands and pissed it away with absolutely terrible play.

Game 6 will be played on Wednesday night at the Wells Fargo Center at 8 p.m. ET on ESPN.
