Hungry dogs run faster?

Jason Kelce said it on the Art Museum steps back on Feb. 8, 2018, a day Philly sports fans will remember forever.

Thursday night, Chris Long and Lane Johnson wanted to spread that mentality to the Sixers.

Wearing the underdog masks, the two Eagles players rang the Sixers’ ceremonial Liberty Bell before Game 6 of the Sixers’ second-round playoff series against the Raptors.

Johnson remembers very clearly when most people counted the Eagles out after Carson Wentz’s season-ending knee injury.

The Raptors were favorites to beat the Sixers in this series, and the widespread assumption seems to be that they’ll move on.

Long and Johnson say, not so fast.
