Philadelphia 76ers center Joel Embiid drives between Toronto Raptors center Marc Gasol and guard Jeremy Lin during the third quarter in game five of the second round of the 2019 NBA Playoffs at Scotiabank Arena.

Elimination games tend to bring out the best and worst of Philadelphia fans — their unwavering faith, unhinged frustration and insane prognostications.

Here's a good look at the pulse of Sixers fans heading into the most pivotal — and potentially final — game of the season.
