The Philadelphia 76ers were eliminated Thursday night at Wells Fargo Center by the Miami Heat 99-90 in Game 6. The Sixers are 0-6 in the conference semifinal series since 2002. I attended the game Thursday night and was shocked at the effort the Sixers put in as a team during a playoff game in front of their home fans. The Sixers were outshot 49-35 while Miami had 13 offensive rebounds. Sixers fans headed for the exits with 7 minutes left in the game, myself included! Joel Embiid was not himself throughout the series; We haven’t seen the NBA’s leading scorer for a myriad of reasons, including playing through a torn ligament in his thumb and a broken orbital bone, but what about the rest of the team? The 76ers will have plenty of free time to reflect and recover from the 2021-22 season.
The Phillies lost another six-point lead Thursday night, but this time they recovered to beat the Los Angeles Dodgers 9-7. If this team wants to be in contention, it cannot breathe as it has done in recent weeks. Bryce Harper and Johan Camargo led the Phillies with three RBIs apiece while Corey Knebel made his seventh save against his former team. The Phillies had won three of four on this West Coast Road Trip by averaging 6.5 points per game. This weekend, the Phillies will continue their four-game streak with the Dodgers before heading home for six games next week.
