DeCamara: '76ers are going to make history and win this series'


The Philadelphia 76ers are 0-19 in playoff series' in the history of the franchise when trailing two games to zero.

But now, after trailing 0-2 vs. the Miami Heat in the Eastern Conference semifinals the series is tied, and Joe DeCamara believes they are going to make history.

"Gut feeling on my end, gut feeling, Sixers are going to win this series," DeCamara said to open Tuesday's 94WIP Midday Show. "And it's more for me than just a gut feeling. I actually really, really believe it. What I mean by that is, there's a little differentiation there. Sometimes you kind of think it and your gut tells you, 'Ah this is more likely.' I really think the Sixers are going to do this, I think they're gonna do what they've never done in their history, which is come back from a 2-0 hole and win a series.

"Simple reason: the greatness of Embiid. The greatness of Embiid, who is clearly the best player in the series...Embiid, plus Maxey, plus Tobias, plus James Harden...equals a 76ers series win."

Embiid, of course, returned in Game 3 and changed the series, as Philadelphia has won two straight to tie it up at two games a piece.

Game 5 is tonight in Miami. The Sixers are +2.5.
