It was a low-scoring game that got ugly at times, but the only thing that matters this time of year is getting the win, and that is just what the squad did!
The team was led in scoring by the youngster, Tyrese Maxey, who checked in with 33 points while making six three-point attempts!
It was much needed on a night when James Harden was not his usual self.
The team will now head to Brooklyn with a 2-0 series lead after another win on the home court.
The 76ers themselves were not the only ones who left the arena as winners, though!
All fans in attendance received a free rally towel on their seats that has the team’s playoff slogan printed on it, “For The Love of Philly.”
I’m sure all the fans were happy to leave with that!
But I’m not sure they were as happy as I was last night with all the cool stuff and people I got to see!
Starting off my night with another delicious pregame meal prepared by the team and then running into event staff extraordinaire, John R is always a good thing!
Then, I saw fellow Philadelphia market media member, Breland Moore, from Fox 29 and snagged a pic!
And being that it was a nationally televised game, we weren’t the only media members in the building either — both local and national!
John Clark from NBC10 Philadelphia was on the court pregame filming a package and doing some live coverage.
Hill was actually hanging with World B. Free for a little pregame.
But the people I was most excited to run into down there were my good friends, Matt and Marisa!
The both of them actually just got married over the weekend in Las Vegas then flew back on Monday, and came straight to the game!
So congrats to both of them!
I guess they were good luck since the team won!
The big names in the building didn’t stop there!
Of course, I can’t forget the biggest stars, which are the players!
Then, it was time for the celebrity bell ringer to hype the crowd up, and the team did not disappoint again with their choice!
It was former Phillies great, Larry Bowa!
Overall, it was a great night!
The Sixers left with a win For The Love of Philly, and there was definitely a ton of love in the air for this team and city!
Well, besides a quick little Steven Singer ad that popped up on my screen in my “office” down at my courtside seats!
I can’t wait until the team returns for their next playoff game!
The building has been electric!
Though, hopefully, the next time they return it’ll be in the conference quarter finals!
Get your brooms ready for a sweep!
