The Philadelphia 76ers are finished after they fell to former Sixers star Jimmy Butler and the Miami Heat 99-90 in Game 6 on Thursday night. Philadelphia had an opportunity to bounce back and force a Game 7, but it just wasn’t there from the jump.

The Heat jumped out to the lead and while the Sixers gave themselves a chance at halftime, Miami seemed to take their heart in the third quarter. Butler was making shot after shot and they all seemed like daggers. Not just with his offense, but with his hustle plays. It was all Butler and the Heat on the road.

This was the first time the road team had won in this series as Miami got good production out of Max Strus as well to help Butler get the job done. Philadelphia star James Harden only had 11 points on 4-for-9 shooting and he took only two shots in the second half and Joel Embiid had 20 points on 7-for-24 shooting.

NBA Twitter had their best reactions as Butler and the Heat now head to the Eastern Conference finals for the second time in three seasons:
