Sixers, Mavs Make It 2-2 In Game 4’s

Jonathan Grant | May 9th, 2022

It’s been a long time since we have seen the true James Harden on the court. The Philadelphia 76ers brought him in with the hopes that he could be the missing link to their NBA title aspirations, but he had lacked confidence in most of his outings prior to Sunday as his team took on the Miami Heat in a potentially pivotal Game 4 showdown.

He finally looked like his old self here, scoring 31 points and dishing out nine assists as he propelled the Sixers to a 116-108 win to even up the series. Of course, the help of Joel Embiid the past two games has helped as well, and he provided them with 24 points and 11 boards as they overcame Jimmy Butler’s big 40-point evening. The series now swings back to Miami with it all right back where we started. In the opener of the day, the Dallas Mavericks were able to ensure that they would be heading back to Phoenix with their series tied up as well. The Mavs picked up a 111-101 home win over the Suns in Game 4 as Luka Doncic scored 26 points and dished out 11 assists and the home squad took full advantage of Chris Paul’s foul troubles to grab a much-needed ‘W’ that effectively makes this a best-of-three series from here. Devin Booker had scored 35 to lead all scorers, but it was not enough to put the Suns one game away from the next round.
