Coming into this season, the Philadelphia 76ers had a lot of expectations to be a contender. Ultimately, the Sixers underperformed, but made some huge trades. Midseason, Philly made big moves to get better, trading for Jimmy Butler and Tobias Harris.
These trades didn’t show up in wins, as Philly slid from 52 wins, to 51, but it was supposed to show, come playoff time. In Game 1, Jimmy Butler was the only person who showed up to play. Led by D’Angelo Russell, the Nets would dominate Philadelphia.
Tonight, it looked like the Nets would go up 2-0, as the Sixers playing better only put them up by 1, at halftime. Charles Barkley even said the lower-seeded Nets had no fear of Philly. In the second half, Joel Embiid got it going, as did Ben Simmons and Tobias Harris, sparking a franchise record 145 points, setting Twitter off.
