If you attended the Philadelphia 76ers matchup against the Boston Celtics you got your money’s worth. You witnessed one of the most entertaining games of the season and the best 76ers match in the early NBA year. There were 14 lead changes in the fourth quarter, a game winning bucket that left only 1.4 seconds remaining and clutch shots hit by veteran stars. One of the best NBA games you will watch during the regular season.
However, if you’re a faithful Philadelphia fanatic feeling heartbroken and devastated, it is understandable. What occurred in the closing minutes of the ball game gave you hope that was quickly squandered by a team that has been there before — the Boston Celtics. It was as Head Coach Doug Collins described it, like a “kicked to the gut”. Only for us it was worse. It was like getting kicked in the gut by an older sibling, a brother that has bullied you all your life and the moment you feel like you’ve accomplished anything, they put you right back into place.
