It will be a huge game when the Boston Celtics and Philadelphia 76ers square off in game six. The Sixers were able to win Game 5 at home because the Celtics failed to capitalize on their opportunity. As a consequence, the tie is broken and the Sixers now hold a 3-2 series advantage. The Sixers maintained a sizable lead throughout the game, rarely giving the Celtics any chance to win, therefore the Celtics were unable to take advantage of playing at home.
The win was greatly influenced by Joel Embiid, whose ailment is a major worry for the Sixers. Jayson Tatum was sad to see his team lose at home despite scoring a game-high 36 points. The Philadelphia audience will support their side and the recently named MVP in Game 6 because it will be played there. The Celtics should suffer a severe setback if they lose tonight.
