Wow! I, along with almost everyone else who cares about basketball, want the Sixers to cream the Lakers. However, I didn't think it could be done. I thought the Lakers were on their way to another sweep. It was to my great surprise that Philly was able to send the game into overtime and then pull out the win. I admit that I even turned off the game with three minutes left in OT because it looked as if the Lakers would be able to maintain their five-point lead. I haven't been a Philly fan all season, so I didn't really know the extent to which Allen Iversen and the rest of his team could scrap together and come out ahead. Iversen really is amazing! Go Sixers!
