Season on the Line
By Aish Abid
The Philadelphia 76ers look to force a game 7 tonight against the Boston Celtics; who are urging to advance to the Eastern conference finals. The Sixers coming this far into the playoffs has been a shock for everyone. This might be the last game the Sixers play this season, but in order to stay in the semi-finals, Sixers star player, Andre Iguodala must amaze the crowd and play a stellar game. Iguodala may not lead his team with points or assist, but he really stepped up this game this season in order to bring the 76er’s into the 2011-2012 playoffs as he has improved his points per game. If the 76er’s want to stay in the playoffs, Iguodala must be ready to put up as many points as he can.
Rajon Rondo and the Boston Celtics played their heart out in game 5 against the 76er’s to lead the series 3-2. Tonight, they are one win away from advancing to the Eastern conference finals. But, if they lose to tie the series 3-3, they will return for a thrilling game 7. Rajon Rondo recorded another double-double with 13 points and 14 assists and Kevin Garnett with 20 points in their 101-85 win over the Sixers, thanks to the help from Brandon Bass with a career night with 27 points.
Be sure to catch the Boston Celtics and the Philadelphia 76er’s back in action at the Wells Fargo Center tonight at 8 p.m.
