NBA Playoffs: How to Watch Game 6 on Thursday, May 12




, , ,

Win or go home is the motto for tonight’s Game 6s. In the early game, the Philadelphia 76ers, down 3-2, will welcome the Miami Heat to the Wells Fargo Center in a must-win game. Led by Jimmy Butler, the Heat dominated the Sixers during their last meeting after going on a 12-0 run in the 4th quarter. The Sixers may be without Joel Embiid for tonight’s game due to various injuries and will be looking for big games out of James Harden and Tyrese Maxey in order to scathe off elimination.

Like the Sixers, the Luka Doncic, and the Dallas Mavericks are trying to escape a 3-2 hole when they host Chris Paul and the Phoenix Suns in tonight’s late game. Most of the games in this series have been lopsided with an average margin of victory of 17.25 points. Neither team has won on the road and in Game 5, the Suns won by 30 points. Doncic and company will have to play better defensively if they want to take the series to a seventh game.
