The Matt Cord Show With Steve Vassalotti

The Matt Cord Show With Steve Vassalotti

Last night down at the Wells Fargo Center may have not been the outcome the city of Philadelphia was hoping for in the end, but it was still a very entertaining night nonetheless.

The 76ers fell to the Boston Celtics by a score of 95-86 after a long battle where they fell just short.

The team battled back from an early deficit after struggling for the first five minutes of the game, and then they remained in control for the majority of the game… until the last five minutes.

That is when things fell apart and the Celtics made the score out of reach.

Now things are all tied up in the series as it heads back to Boston for a Mother’s Day showdown in game 7.

Hopefully, last night was not my last game as public address announcer for the season!

But if it was – which I don’t believe it will be – it was another fun one, for sure!

The stars were out last night, including an All-Pro center for the Philadelphia Eagles and his little brother who happened to beat the Eagles in the Super Bowl.

Yes, Jason Kelce and Travis Kelce were in the building enjoying all the pregame festivities and the game itself before it took a turn for the worst!

ESPN was also in the building for the national broadcast, so Brian Windhorst, one of their major reporters, was in the house doing some pregame updates.

The mother of one of the greatest Sixers players of all time was also down at The Center, Ann Iverson!

Happy early Mother’s Day!

Plus, we had a very special bell ringer last night!

Philly’s own, Questlove, the drummer for the legendary group, The Roots, was announced to a loud ovation from the sold-out crowd!

And obviously, I can’t forget the players!

I was able to catch a little bit of Tyrese Maxey and Tobias Harris warming up, and the unexpected star of game 5, Danuel House, doing his pregame routine.

But the biggest star in the house – at least to me – was my girl Kees!

She is one of the photographers for the team and she does an amazing job!

Follow her on Instagram (@kees2life) to see her work – it is worth it!

Obviously, I think it is safe to assume everyone I mentioned would have preferred to leave the building with a win last night, but the series is not over yet!

Everything we wanted out of this season from the Sixers is still right there in front of us!

We just need the team to go take it!

Go Sixers!
