This is probably one of my favorite Sixers games of all time. Why? Well, I was there in person first of all. Experiencing a game like this, where the Sixers were down by 14 to start the game and down by 10+ the WHOLE game, it seemed as if they were just going to lose and go home. But in good old Philadelphia fashion, the Sixers fought and fought hard.
This is the game that changed my opinion (and the 2012 playoffs in general) forever on Andre Iguodala. His leadership and ability to make clutch shots was just exceptional and blew my mind. I really began to appreciate him after this game. I mean they were down as much as 18 points to a VETERAN Celtics squad with Kevin Garnett, Paul Pierce and Rajon Rondo. The Sixers had no business winning this game, or taking this series to seven games for that matter.
These were probably the last glory times of the Sixers that we will see for a couple years. Jrue Holiday, Lou Williams, Andre Iguodala, Elton Brand, Thaddeus Young, Evan Turner. Remember that team? They always fought hard and they gave me quite the exciting season.
I still remember this game like it was yesterday. No one in the Wells Fargo Center thought we would win this game. Man, this place was ELECTRIC during this comeback. After the final buzzer sounded, the place was going MAD. People were screaming and running all over the place and tossing expletives to every Boston fan that could be found in the area. Everyone was screaming and just having a great time and enjoying the victory. This is one that I will never forget. GO Sixers.
