Philadelphia Sixers-Toronto Raptors Game 7 Time Announced (If Necessary)
The Philadelphia Sixers will head back to Toronto to face the Raptors in what could be a series-deciding Game 6 on Thursday night.
The NBA announced earlier on Wednesday that if their is a Game 7 in Philadelphia that game would be Saturday night at either 7 p.m. or 8:30 p.m. from Wells Fargo center.
The Sixers lead the Raptors 3-2 following Monday's 103-88 loss in Game 5 after winning the first three games, Philadelphia has now dropped the last two.
No NBA team has ever lost four straight game when leading a series 3-0, but Doc Rivers has now lost 7 of his last 8 opportunities to close out a series and the Raptors are the 14th team all-time to force Game 6 after trailing 3-0 in the series.
The Sixers have had to navigate the past two games with All-Star center Joel Embiid, playing with an torn ligament in his right thumb, which has effected his play.
Toronto has found ways to bother Embiid all game long with double teams and on the offensive side of the ball, they took the ball to the basket at will with Embiid targeted. Their size was also able to slow down James Harden, who took only 11 shots in the Game 5 loss.
If Philadelphia advances, it will face the Miami Heat in the second round, and Game 6 of that series is set for Thursday at 7 p.m., with Philadelphia currently leading 3-2.
Game 6 will air on our sister station, Classic Rock 104.1 at 7 p.m.
