Open thread recap: Sixers handle business in Game 6 vs. Raptors

Sixers NBA

The Sixers' season comes down to this. 

On Thursday night, Philly will face the Raptors in an elimination game at the Wells Fargo Center. And a loss in Game 6 means the end of the line for Brett Brown and Co. after dropping two straight, including Tuesday night's 36-point blowout loss up in Toronto. 

For the Sixers, a healthy Joel Embiid will go a long way toward evening up this series at 3-3 and sending it back north for a final Game 7. The winner will go on to face the top-seeded Bucks, who capped off a 4-1 series win over the Celtics on Wednesday night, in the Eastern Conference Finals. 

First, however, the Sixers will need to take care of business at home. Going from 10 wins to 28 wins to back-to-back 50-plus-win seasons is a huge accomplishment for the Sixers, but another second-round exit could be on the horizon if Philly is unable right the ship — and buck the historical trend by winning both games 6 and 7.
