On Wednesday night, the Sixers had that opportunity.
Michael Carter-Williams came up with the huge offensive rebound off the Kris Humphries miss and brought the ball up court to get the ball to Evan Turner. Turner did the rest.
It's always fun when the Sixers win, especially in such an exciting manner. But it makes the win a bit sweeter than it came against the Celtics in Boston knowing that everyone except that one section of Sixers fans thought they had the win wrapped up.
