Philadelphia 76ers Fan Was Caught Sleeping During The Third Quarter Of The Game Against The Miami Heat

Any NBA fan in the world would tell you that the playoffs are the most exciting time of the year. 

While the regular season provides us with a lot of great moments and elite basketball, the elevated stakes of the playoffs, with teams fighting it out to win an NBA championship, often make for exciting moments and memorable games for fans.

But not all fans share this level of enthusiasm. During Game 4 of the series between the Miami Heat and the Philadelphia 76ers, one fan sitting courtside was caught on camera sleeping during the third quarter. 

The game was very tight, and the Wells Fargo Center was electric, but this fan was able to sleep through the noise that the packed arena was making. Inside The NBA later showed the footage, and roasted the fan for sleeping.

Kenny Smith: "He could be a little narcoleptic."

Charles Barkley: "He's not narcoleptic, he's drunk as hell."

Despite the one fan sleeping in the arena, the 76ers fans were loud and on their feet throughout the game. 

The 76ers played really well, with James Harden having one of his best playoff games, and one of his highest-scoring games in recent memory, as he scored 31 points to help the 76ers get the win

It was a big-time performance from Harden, who delivered when the game was close during the 4th quarter. Fans were ecstatic to see Harden play so well, showering him with praise after the game.

The 76ers will be hoping that this is a sign of things to come from Harden, as they will need him to play consistently at this level if the 76ers want to defeat the Miami Heat and reach the Eastern Conference Finals. 

The 76ers will go to Miami for Game 5, where they will experience another rabid crowd, but one that will be cheering against them, and probably all awake.
