On today’s date in 1983, the Sixers concluded perhaps the greatest playoff run by any team in Philly history. They knocked off the great LA Lakers in 4 straight games to complete a blitzkrieg through the playoffs in which they went 12-1. The Lakers, the team of the 80s and the team that had knocked off the Sixers in the Finals the year before, never came within 5 points of Philadelphia in the series. Here are the highlights of Game 4, incredibly some of which are set to the music of Flashdance by Irene Cara.
