PHILADELPHIA (CBS) - No matter what happens in game seven tomorrow night, the Sixers have gone farther than anyone thought they would this season.

I’m not saying they are going to lose tomorrow, but you have to admit it’s going to be tough. Very tough. In the history of the NBA when a game seven is played the home team has won 80 percent of the time.

The series with the Celtics has been exciting to say the least. Game four was one of the greatest comebacks I’ve seen. The Sixers were down by 18 at one point and came back to win it. As Tom McGinnis would say “YOU GOTTA BE KIDDING ME!”

This year’s Sixers remind me of the 2009-2010 Flyers. You didn’t expect them to get as far as they did. Every win was like an unexpected gift. Remember when they went to Boston to play a game seven and how that turned out?

The last time these two teams met in a game seven was in 1982. That year, the Sixers beat the Celtics.

Let’s hope history repeats itself tomorrow.
