NBA Playoffs 2012, 76ers Vs. Celtics, Game 6: Can Thaddeus Young And Lou Williams Give The Sixers A Boost?

The Philadelphia 76ers are on the brink of elimination in the Eastern Conference Semifinals against the Boston Celtics. Game 6 of the series, which the Sixers trail 3-2, is on Wednesday night at 8 p.m. at Wells Fargo Center.

In Game 4, Thaddeus Young and Lou Williams had a combined 27 points and 11 assists off the bench for the Sixers in a 92-83 victory. In the Celtics' easy Game 5 win, Young and Williams scored just 15 total points and only had three combined assists. The Sixers will need all the help they can get tonight to prevent being eliminated. Will Young and Williams step up for Philadelphia? SB Nation's Mike Prada talks about the importance of Young and Williams among other topics in his keys to Game 6.
