The Sixers have survived! In a hard-fought game that saw incredible physicality, practically a million fouls, and multiple ejections following a spirited scrum, the Philadelphia 76ers have prevailed by the skin of their teeth against the Brooklyn Nets in Game 4 of their playoff series. And who was the hero that put things out of reach with under 20 seconds to go? None other than veteran ninja Mike Scott.
Show of hands if you had ol' Mikey being delivering the clutch dagger today.
Scott had just eight points in the game, but saved his best for when it mattered most. It's been a whole new world for the veteran wing after he came over from the LA Clippers in the midseason Tobias Harris trade, and he's got to be feeling good about how things are going since his relocation.
Pretty simple. Philadelphia doesn’t win this game (and possibly the series) if the trade with the LA Clippers doesn’t happen.— Bobby Marks (@BobbyMarks42) April 20, 2019
After shockingly dropping Game 1 In Philly, the Sixers have won three on the trot and return home to the Wells Fargo Center with a chance to close Brooklyn out in Game 5. Despite all the drama, life is still good for Brett Brown's team.
