Philadelphia ended the Lakers’ 10-game unbeaten streak on the road with their 107-106 win last night. Doc Rivers and his pupils showed the purple and gold they’re real and even though the game was really close, the Sixers played great basketball at home.
The competition is hard for both teams this season in their respective squads but if they get past their most dangerous rivals, we’re ready to see what they will bring to the table in the playoffs. These teams are expected to compete after having very moved offseasons and their fans can’t wait to see them going at it.
Joel Embiid and LeBron James starred in a very controversial moment during the game and that has added more fuel to this matchup. AD is confident his team can beat the Sixers in a seven-game series, making things more interesting for everybody.
