And is a good FT shooter. If we're aggressive to the basket the last 5 minutes and hit most of our FT's we win that game by 5+.
Yep. The team offense worked so well in the first and the third, and even to start the fourth, that it was very painful to watch under a little more pressure to finish the game. It feels more about coaching and psyche than their true offensive or defensive abilities - Sixers are one of the teams with hardly more talent than the Raps.

And they were in the bonus with more than 8 minutes to go! Unbelieavable.
