76ers can sweep series this weekend

After another win in another not-so-good game, Philadelphia is 3-0 in the series and can qualify on Saturday


The NBA Playoffs could meet its first team qualified for the Second-Round on Saturday. That’s because the Philadelphia 76ers beat the Brooklyn Nets 102-97 yesterday, are now 3-0, and can sweep the series this weekend. The game was not great once again, with low scoring, but it doesn’t matter to the Sixers fans.

After going to the locker room winning by 58-47, Philadelphia had a blackout in the third period and saw the Nets taking the lead by 6 points before the fourth period. Even playing on the road, the 76ers had a great comeback in the last quarter of the game and managed to win the game by 5 points.

Now that the Sixers are 3-0 in the series, they are the first team to have the chance to sweep the series and qualify for the next round. And they will need another great game from their star duo James Harden and most likely MVP Joel Embiid.
