Sixers stifle Boston to force Game 7
The eighth-seeded Sixers missed 11 free throws, hit just 1-of-9 from three-
point range and were outrebounded 48-37, but nevertheless pulled out a gutty
Game 6 win by holding Boston to 33 percent shooting and forcing 17 turnovers.
Philadelphia had five players reach double figures — led by Jrue Holiday’s 20
points — but it was its defense that has the series headed back to Boston for
a winner-take-all battle on Saturday.
Paul Pierce and Kevin Garnett provided 24 and 20 points, respectively, for the
Celtics, who stayed close by making 20-of-23 from the foul line.
Brandon Bass regressed with an eight-point effort on 2-of-12 shooting just two
days after his 27 points sparked Boston to a 101-85 rout and a series lead.
