The Sixers take on the Celtics tonight for control of the series. If the Celtics win, it's likely over. They'll have turned on the jets enough to put down a less-talented Sixers club and there's no way they'd be able to come back from a 3-1 deficit. If the Sixers win, they'd be in the driver's seat. The shame Boston should feel at being 2-2 to this shell of a team could very well suppress any advantages they may have.
This is, for all intents and purposes, the series. So how are you feeling about the game? CelticsBlog is flexing their beer muscles from the Game Three debacle but the Sixers are owed a SHUT IT DOWN game themselves and that could be tonight. Or, they could lose by a thousand. I personally hope for the latter because losing by a thousand would be quite the feat.
I went on Angelo Cataldi's morning show on WIP this morning (early morning in LA) to talk with them about the Sixers. Angelo tried to get me to trash Boston but I played the party-pooper and didn't trash them. I guess that's my bad. For no other reason than "Sixers Be Crazy", I have the Sixers winning tonight. I think the defense will step it up because they couldn't step it down anymore and the runners will get out in transition. An Evan Turner game wouldn't hurt either.
Prediction Time. Who ya got? Sixers be crazy.
