On the 26th day Philly slugged out another home win, which will send the series back to Boston for Game 7. The league also announced the All-NBA teams, with Chris Paul, Dwight Howard and LeBron James scoring top honours in both the All-NBA first team, and All-NBA defensive first team. They were joined in the All-NBA first team by Kobe Bryant and Kevin Durant.
3 votes – Jrue Holiday. To say that nobody was particularly hot from the field would be putting it mildly. But Holiday’s team high 20 points provided Philly with the spark they needed to get over the hump against the C’s and force a game seven.
2 votes – Elton Brand. Elton Brand hasn’t exactly been efficient throughout the postseason, but he had a rock solid performance in Game 6 which should help him regain some confidence as his Sixers look to shock the world by advancing to the eastern conference finals.
1 vote – Paul Pierce. On a night where Brandon Bass shot 2-12, Rondo shot 4-14 and the rest of the team were below 50%, it would have been nice to see The Truth hoist up a few more shots, but an efficient night for Pierce (24 points, 10 rebounds) helped keep the Celtics in the hunt.
