It’s time to stand up and be counted at the Wells Fargo Center.
The Philadelphia 76ers need a win to stay alive against the Boston Celtics in Game Six of the Eastern Conference Semifinals on Wednesday night.
Doug Collins will have to make some key adjustments to keep this series going. Brandon Bass took Philadelphia apart in Game Five, scoring 27 points to lead Boston to victory.
Andre Iguodala needs to step up in a big way to lead his team. The small forward only had eight points and six rebounds on Monday, a far cry from what’s expected of him.
Evan Turner is perhaps the biggest x-factor of all. The second year player out of Ohio State had a double-double with 11 points and 10 boards last game. It’s imperative Turner plays strong once again.
If the 76ers want to see a Game Seven, they’ll have to keep Paul Pierce under control. Pierce is playing injured but still finding a way to make a difference.
It's now or never for a group that hasn't had any quit in it since day one.
Time: 8:00 p.m. ET
