CAMDEN, N.J. — The Philadelphia 76ers have their backs against the wall on Thursday as they host the Miami Heat in Game 6. This one on Thursday will either be their final game or they can rally together and survive to force a Game 7 back in Miami.

The Sixers have been in this situation before. They were down 3-2 in the semifinals in both 2019 and 2021 and they were able to rally and win the Game 6.

Danny Green was on the Toronto Raptors in 2019 and lost that Game 6 to the Sixers before they won Game 7 on the Kawhi Leonard shot. Green was obviously with the Sixers in 2021 even though he wasn’t able to play in the Game 6 with the Atlanta Hawks due to injury.

“Just fighting every minute,” said Green. “Every possession matters and giving it your all. We’re in a home building this time. Last year, they were on the road so they can do it on the road, we can definitely do it in our home building and make it happen.”

Being in the league for 13 years, Green has seen a lot in the NBA. He has seen almost every scenario one can see in the playoffs and it’s why he has three rings and he has been a big contributor throughout his career. He understands what the Sixers are dealing with right now and it will be on them to be able to battle through it all.

“Take it one game at a time,” he said. “After we win at home, we got to go on the road and try to do it again, but tonight (Thursday) we have to focus on being in this being in the moment, embracing it, and getting a win.”
