Sixers looking to stay alive against Celtics in Game 5

To the surprise of no one in a Celtics uniform, it was Smart.

"The way that thing works is you get one vote.I looked at the sheet and there's no way that I would have voted for me over any of the other 29 people", Stevens said.

If the Celtics had Kyrie Irving and Gordon Heyward, this series would be over by now.

The Celtics brought it home in their house.

Rozier was fouled with 9.8 on the clock and, with his new best friend Drew Bledsoe watching from the opposite baseline, hit twice. Yes he is much better playing at home rather than on the road, but he is still developing to become a consistent contributor. But at this moment, we don't have to think about them just yet.

When the Knicks rallied to force a Game 7, it was the first time the NBA Finals were extended to a seventh game, which was a nail-biter.

Rozier was called for an offensive foul.

May 5, 2018; Philadelphia, PA, USA; Boston Celtics guard Terry Rozier (12) shoots.

But the 76ers did not go away, racing to a 19-9 run during their 30-point third quarter.

"But we definitely have more to show".

Embiid, 24, later jawed back and forth with Celtics forward Marcus Morris, who held up three fingers and a fist as a reminder that his team held a 3-0 series lead. They play at different paces.

Rozier isn't the only young talent whose been stepping up their game this postseason. On the ensuing possession, Jayson Tatum scored a cutting layup with 22.5 points to play. "We know what to expect with their players".




Donovan Mitchell is Simmons' only realistic rival for the Rookie of the Year award. After seeing performances like we've seen from Tatum during this post-season run, it is clear Tatum will be back next year even better.

Make no mistake, dealing with the Celtics swarming defense, road crowd and pressure of facing elimination makes this almost impossible.

Worse, Simmons missed a critical shot at just the wrong time, which prompted him to say he has some "learning to do".

Sabonis retired, while Pippen played for Chicago one last season and Rasheed Wallace joined the Detroit Pistons as Portland would miss the playoffs the next five seasons.

Have there been certain points in this series where Brown's decision-making was questionable? Yes.

The Nuggets proved to be a tough team to eliminate in the 1994 playoffs.

NEED TO KNOW The Celtics are on the verge of a rematch with the Cavaliers in the conference finals. Slowing down James is no easy task, despite the team's strong defensive effort during this year's playoffs.

Lets jump ahead to next season.

"I was just out there having fun".

But on Wednesday, the football player was there in person, meeting Rozier before the game and sitting courtside with Celtics owner Wyc Grousbeck.

The Celtics have already taken three big bites out of the 76ers.
