So far the narrative has been that when Harden has a bad game the Sixers lose. So if he is firing up blanks to start Game 7, the Sixers are probably cooked. He's had two outstanding games in the series so far, one good game and three terrible games. Can he pull one more good to great game out of his beard?

I expect a blowout Sunday

Why get mad? Whats the definition of insanity? Stevie Wonder saw this one coming back in October.

Same team for the last 4 years and yet they keep running it back. This time with Harden who you don't know if he will show up or not.

I do believe they will lose Sunday but not a blow out. 10 or less.

They honestly need to take a hard look at Joel this offseason, and he needs to do the same. He's the star and should be pushing the FO to get solid guys around him, or trade him out and give him a better chance to win.
I'm not mad- more depressed at the never ending futility of Philly teams in winning championships

I never thought that they would win last night - just kept hoping that they would prove me wrong

1 point in 5+ minutes is disgraceful. I don't like saying a team choked usually, but they did

In games like that, you need athletic, dynamic wings who can shoot,.dribble and defend. You need complete players. No one should expect your 7-2, 280lb center to take defenders off the dribble and get to the rim. They can't change direction and don't have the handle to facilitate once that size gets moving. They double Embiid from the top with Harden's man and keep him from turning the corner. They do that because they don't fear Harden as a spot up shooter and they know Smart can close out on him.

This roster is lacking. They can overcome it if Embiid, Harden and Maxey all go off and the Celtics are average at 3s. The Celtics get consistent help from White and Brogdon. The 76ers got help in Game 1, Melton, and Game 5, Harris. Harris can not score only 2pts tomorrow, he needs 20. Melton has to score 12.
