Game Notes
The series shifts to Philadelphia as the Celtics and 76ers face off in Game 3 of the Eastern Conference Semifinals.  The Celtics were a good road team in the regular season with a 28-13 record, which was first in the East and 3rd in the league.  Philly was a very good home team with a 30-11 record at home in the regular season.

The Celtics were unable to win a game on the road in the first round with the series going to 7 games.  They have home court advantage in this series as well and would not have to win on the road to win the series, but it would also be nice to get a win on the road and finish out the series without having to go to 7 games again. 

Jalen Brown missed Game 1 with a sore hamstring.  He talked the team medical staff into letting him play in Game 2 and played 25 minutes.  His hamstring was sore after the game and so I imagine that they will need to make a decision once again at game time whether he will be able to play.  He will go through shoot around and they will decide then if he is able to play. 

Since Marcus Smart has worked out very well in the starting lineup and Brown is likely to be limited once again, I think Brad will stick with Smart with the starters.  The Sixers are at full strength with no injuries listed while the Celtics are  still without Kyrie Irving, Gordon Hayward, and Daniel Theis.  I expect Brown to once again talk his way into playing, but the Celtics need hiim at full strength,  not limited by the hamstring. 

Key Matchups
(https://ak-static.cms.nba.com/wp-content/uploads/headshots/nba/latest/260x190/1626179.png)  vs  (http://ak-static.cms.nba.com/wp-content/uploads/headshots/nba/latest/260x190/1627732.png)
Terry Rozier vs Ben Simmons
The 6'10"Simmons will have a distinct height advantage on Rozier, but Rozier will likely not be guarding Simmons in this game.  More than likely, Horford will once again get the job of guarding Simmons.   Rozier will likely shift over to guard JJ Redick.   Simmons will be motivated to have a big game in this one after scoring just 1 point and turning the ball over 5 times in Game 2. 

(http://ak-static.cms.nba.com/wp-content/uploads/headshots/nba/latest/260x190/203382.png) vs (http://ak-static.cms.nba.com/wp-content/uploads/headshots/nba/latest/260x190/203954.png)
Aron Baynes vs Joel Embiid
Aron Baynes did a good job of defending Embiid in Game 1 without the Celtics needing to run double teams at him.  He scored 31 points and pulled down 13 rebounds, but Baynes was able to keep him away from the basket for the most part.  5 of his 12 field goals were out of the paint.  In Game 2, he scored just 20 points on 36.4% shooting from the floor and 16.7% from beyond the arc. 

Honorable Mention
Marcus Smart  vs JJ Redick
 If Al Horford covers Simmons, then I think Rozier shifts onto Redick and Smart would cover Saric.   Redick had 20 points, 3 rebounds and 3 assists in Game 1 but he shot just 2-7 from beyond the arc. He was the reason the 76ers charged out to a 22 point lead in the 2nd quarter of Game 2, scoring 23 points and shooting 53% from the field and 56% from beyond the arc.  He is a tough cover because he moves well without the ball and will run through several screens as he tries to get open. 

Also Worth Mentioning
Celtics Bench vs Sixers Bench
With the injuries to Kyrie, Theis, Hayward, and possibly Brown, the Celtics bench has taken a hit.  They will depend on Morris, Monroe, Larkin, and Semi to play well on both ends of the court.  Hopefully Brown will be healthy to play, which will give the bench a boost.  The Sixers bench averaged 35.6 points in the first round, which is the best of any team in the playoffs.  Their bench scored 17 in Game 1 and 23 points in Game 2.  The Celtics bench contributed 19 points in Game 1 and 30 points in Game 2, boosted by 13 from Brown.  The Celtics need their bench to contribute on offense and also play tough defense.

Keys to the Game
Defense -  The old saying that Defense wins Championships is very true.   The Sixers are second in the playoffs in scoring (110.7) while the Celtics are 9th (104.7).  In Game 1, the Celtics got back to playing tough defense, especially on the perimeter, holding the Sixers to 101 points and 19% shooting from beyond the arc.  They let up on defense a bit in Game 2 but clamped down at the end to get the win.  They need to play tough defense especially on the road since the Sixers will likely shoot better at home. 

Be Aggressive - The Celtics have to be the more aggressive team and go after all the loose balls, and aggressively go after rebounds, and be aggressive on defense. They also have to be aggressive in taking the ball into the paint.  The more aggressive team will usually get the benefit of the whistles.  The Celtics need to be the hardest working and toughest team on the court.  We know that the Sixers will be aggressive and play hard with the crowd behind them and the Celtics have to match their intensity. 

Rebound - The Celtics need to crash the boards as they can't score if they don't have the ball.  The Sixers are first in the playoffs with 49.1 rebounds per game while the Celtics are 9th with 42.1 rebounds per game. The Celtics have been out-rebounded 45-36 so far in the series.   The Sixers are first in the playoffs with 16.7 second chance points per game.  The Celtics have to work very hard to beat the Sixers to rebounds to avoid giving them extra points on second chance baskets. 

Play Hard 48 Minutes -  The Celtics started off slowly in game 2, looking sluggish on both ends of the court.  They can't afford a slow start on the road and need to come out and play hard from the opening tip right up until the final buzzer.  If they  have a slow start or let down during the game at any time, the Sixers will be sure to take advantage. 

Move the Ball and Stay Focused - The Celtics need to move the ball.  So far they are averaging 27 assists per game to 22 for the Sixers.  They play best when they share the ball and find the open man.  When they try to do too much individually, it rarely works out well.  They also have to stay focused and take good shots and not rush their shots or go away from the game plan. 

X-Factors
Road Game - The Celtics were unable to win on the road in the first round, in spite of being a good road team in the regular season.  Young players seem to struggle on the road and play well at home.  The Celtics young players need to stay focused and not let the hostile crowd rattle them.  The Sixers young players will play much better with the home crowd behind them and to the Celtics have to play better to match that. 

Jaylen Brown - Jaylen talked his way into playing in Game 2 but was sore afterwards.  I'm sure he will try to play again in this game regardless of whether he is sore or not.  If he is not limited by the hamstring, he will give the Celtics a boost.  If he can't play or is limited, others will need to step up.   

Officiating - The officiating is always an X-Factor.  Sometimes the officiating is very good and they let both teams play and call it evenly.  Other times the refs may have an agenda vs a player or a team and call it one sided.  Much of it depends on the referees assigned to the game.  The refs in Game 2 were good and let them play without letting the team get out of hand.  Hopefully they can get the same in this one.

This game won't be easy. PHI will try to come out firing and feed of their crowd's energy (especially early), so what the C's have to do is simply weather the storm. They did that successfully in Games 4 and 6 of the MIL series and kept it close before unfortunately MIL pulled away late. I think our experience could come real handy here though.

Not rocket science, but again going to need Horford, Rozier and Tatum to all ball out again. Morris I think will be an X-factor. We may need him to hit his shots and score in bunches to keep us in the game. Simmons won't score just 1 point tonight, but game plan should obviously remain the same (keep him away from the paint). Let Embiid score 30, so long as we *contain* their other shooters.

I do think that if there's one thing "missing" in this playoff run, or if there's something left for the C's to do, it's win a road playoff game. If this youth and our rookies win their first road playoff game, it will be huge for momentum possibly going into next series, or even just going forward (into next season). Huge confidence boost for this young group. Getting that checked off tonight would be nice.

LETS GO C'S!!!  8)

It's a big part of developing as a legit contender. We forget that the majority of this lineup is as young and inexperienced as the Sixers, if not more. Other than Horford and to a lesser extent Morris, the main core of this playoff group is very young. Learning to win playoff games on the road is a process.

Belinelli, Reddick, Ilysaova, Amir Johnson are all solid vets on the Sixers too.

This wouldn't be a problem if Kyrie and Hayward are in uniforms. Kyrie has demonstrated he can win on road playoff games (and especially being down 3-1 in championship series).

Celtics need to play like their life depends on it in this game if they want to win. Ben Simmons will have a breakout game so anticipate that.

The difference between being up 2-0 and 3-0 are very huge in a mental standpoint.

We have better shot with Smart playing , he loves screwing the away fans fun.  Kyrie and his back breaking daggers is what we need for those away .....we were good with Kyrie or IT on th road.

i agree, a win here seals the series in 5 games. but i think the most probable outcome will be seven games, ala milwaukee. but as long as the celtics win, i am happy.

heck, i am happy even if they lose. this team has been amazing and fun to watch all year.  ;D

p.s. thanks flc for another wonderful game thread. i do so enjoy reading your analyses. these are a labor of love and that is clear. tp for the thread, and in one hour, a tp for all you have done this season.

and last, but certainly not least....

I'm expecting the Sixers role players will have big games and make a bunch of threes. I also expect Simmons to have a bounce back game.  We're really going to need big performances from everyone to win today.

That doesn't say much good about Ben Simmons' performance in game 2 then, does it?  Less physical but still only able to manage 1 point while looking like he was ready to crap the bed in a bunch of Philly's halfcourt sets.

Listen...if Philly can’t win today...at home...then they flat out are overwhelmed and will be swept. I expect we see everything they have and then some. Lots of off balanced threes falling.

Game threes on the road for teams up 2-0 are the hardest to win in the series.

All the pressure is on the sixers which is exactly what they don’t need. C’s only have to win one in philly.

They had game 4 in Milwaukee. A couple bad calls went against us late that swung points in their favor.

Had we had Smart in the game, we win it and probably don’t even go back to Milwaukee again in game 6.

The main reporter for Philly is a girl named Jess that seems like she started watching the sport 2 years ago. Yet they just asked her expert opinion about the game. It's unreal how unqualified some of these people are yet they get shoved in our face bc they are semi cute and can name players.

Hot take by Pierce in the pre-game: Brad Stevens is the best coach in the NBA today.

While I think he could have done a better job articulating his point, it is great to see PP give the Stevens and the Cs some love.

What does more or less physical have to do with the effectiveness of the defense?  He might be right but there is no question that our defense has been more effective on him.

We didn't manage to win a road game against the Bucks. Let's see if this team can finally learn how to win on the road in the playoffs.

They had game 4 in Milwaukee. A couple bad calls went against us late that swung points in their favor.

Had we had Smart in the game, we win it and probably don’t even go back to Milwaukee again in game 6.
Not really true.  We had some bad calls go in our favor too.

Listen...if Philly can’t win today...at home...then they flat out are overwhelmed and will be swept. I expect we see everything they have and then some. Lots of off balanced threes falling.

Game threes on the road for teams up 2-0 are the hardest to win in the series.
All the pressure is on the sixers which is exactly what they don’t need. C’s only have to win one in philly.

Yeah we just have to get one of the next two.  Probably easier to win game 3 either way, because if we lose game 3, Philly will have momentum going into game 4.

Yeah, the NBA 2-minute report disagrees with you. The Bucks legitimately only won that game due to officiating errors down the stretch that they scored on.

The two clear ones were the hold that Tatum committed and the foul on brown.  There was also an offensive foul on Giannis that he missed and let to the breakaway.  So that didn’t really hurt us.

The foul on Brown was a five point swing - two free throws that he didn't get to shoot and the fast break that led to a three on that very play. We were up two at that point, and that five point swing ultimately sealed the game.

Tatum is my favorite rookie ever.  First legit superstar prospect we’ve had since Bird and I wasn’t alive during Larry’s rookie year.

See Pierce, Paul.  Top 50 all time player. 26,000 career points.

Hyperbole much?
love Pierce. He was never a superstar.  Rookie Tatum has a higher ceiling than rookie piece had.

Yeah. Lets not go there.  Paul Pierce was a legit superstar.  If he was playing in this 3 point shooting era, he'd have averaged 30, easy.

We didn't manage to win a road game against the Bucks. Let's see if this team can finally learn how to win on the road in the playoffs.

They had game 4 in Milwaukee. A couple bad calls went against us late that swung points in their favor.

Had we had Smart in the game, we win it and probably don’t even go back to Milwaukee again in game 6.
Not really true.  We had some bad calls go in our favor too.

Yeah, the NBA 2-minute report disagrees with you. The Bucks legitimately only won that game due to officiating errors down the stretch that they scored on.
The two clear ones were the hold that Tatum committed and the foul on brown.  There was also an offensive foul on Giannis that he missed and let to the breakaway.  So that didn’t really hurt us.

Did I miss anything?

The foul on Brown was a five point swing - two free throws that he didn't get to shoot and the fast break that led to a three on that very play. We were up two at that point, and that five point swing ultimately sealed the game.
Okay, what about the obvious, easy to call hold by Tatum?  We were behind as I recall so that play also swung the game.  So certainly not easy to sa6 we would have won, as you just can’t add up the points.

But you can with our disadvantaged plays. The foul by Tatum only led to a turnover. The foul by Middleton led to a turnover, two missed free throw opportunities, and a big three by Middleton on that fastbreak. So at the very least you can say we were certainly screwed out of 3 points by the bad no-call, as that shot couldn't have happened if it would've been called. And that's not considering the free throws that Brown would've had, too, let alone the other bad no-call that Giannis got away with on the charge.

Nope.  Love Pierce.  Wasn’t a superstar. I don’t label every allstar a superstar.  Pierce was something like the 12th-20th best player in the league during his prime.  Never even 1st team all-nba.  Didn’t have real success until KG (a superstar) lead us to a title.  Pierce didn’t even crack 50 wins until kg showed up.

Not knocking Pierce.  Tatum might not have that level of success, but he’s the best prospect we’ve had since Larry Bird.  Tatum has all the makings of a true all-nba 1st team level superstar if progresses as expected.  I’ve been comparing him to rookie Kevin Durant all season.

I'd definitely argue that Pierce was playing a superstar level when we won in '08.  Played both ends of the court, went toe to toe with the "King", and outplayed Kobe in his prime in the Finals, winning Finals MVP in the process.  We would have won another title in '09 or '10 (I won't go as far as say a 3-peat) if KG doesn't get injured.  That's a superstar to me, regardless of basic stats such as PPG which he sacrificed with Ray Allen and KG.

Peaked as an all star???  He's one of the top 50 players in history, surefire first ballot hall of famer, top 20 all time in points scored, and second leading scorer in Boston Celtics history.  You might wanna look up there term "peak".

Let up a little bit at the end of the quarter, but I'm pretty happy with the end result in a hostile environment. I figured they'd come out hot and get a big lead.

Tatum is my favorite rookie ever.  First legit superstar prospect we’ve had since Bird and I wasn’t alive during Larry’s rookie year.

See Pierce, Paul.  Top 50 all time player. 26,000 career points.

Hyperbole much?
love Pierce. He was never a superstar.  Rookie Tatum has a higher ceiling than rookie piece had.

Yeah. Lets not go there.  Paul Pierce was a legit superstar.  If he was playing in this 3 point shooting era, he'd have averaged 30, easy.
Nope.  Love Pierce.  Wasn’t a superstar. I don’t label every allstar a superstar.  Pierce was something like the 12th-20th best player in the league during his prime.  Never even 1st team all-nba.  Didn’t have real success until KG (a superstar) lead us to a title. 

Not knocking Pierce.  Tatum might not have that level of success, but he’s the best prospect we’ve had since Larry Bird.  Tatum has all the makings of a true all-nba 1st team level superstar if progresses as expected.  I’ve been comparing him to rookie Kevin Durant all season.

Were not around in 1996 and 97 when he was tearing up the NCAA and was projected to go 2 in that draft.  He was a legit superstar prospect.  You should go hunt some scouting reports.  That was also an era where they didn't shoot 8 threes a game.
pierce as an all-star prospect that peaked as an allstar.   Tatum is a superstar prospect.  There’s a difference.

I'd definitely argue that Pierce was playing a superstar level when we won in '08.  Played both ends of the court, went toe to toe with the "King", and outplayed Kobe in his prime in the Finals, winning Finals MVP in the process.  We would have won another title in '09 or '10 (I won't go as far as say a 3-peat) if KG doesn't get injured.  That's a superstar to me, regardless of basic stats such as PPG which he sacrificed with Ray Allen and KG.
I think Tatum does indeed have more potential than PP.  But what are the odds that he reaches that ceiling?

well you knew that was coming at some point.
gotta figure out a way to find their 3 point shooters.

Embiid had 8 out their 20.  Have to find a way to, if not stop, at least slow him down.

I think you're overrating the term "all-star".  Its a popularity contest.  From 2000-2010, Pierce averaged more than 25 points a game 5 times and was truly one of the leagues elite scorers.  He didn't get the press that McGrady and Carter did with all their highlight dunks, but ask any player in the league, he was second only to Kobe as the most feared and deadly wing in the league.  And was one of the 5 most clutch players in the league, statiscally.  If Tatum or Brown become half of Pierce, we should consider ourselves fortunate.

These announcers are so pro-philly it is sickening.  Mocking Baynes for falling down after he gets shoved squarely in the chest by Reddick.  Size has nothing to do with it, that's a clear cut foul.

Morris with the airball... what?

Risky keeping Tatum out there with 3 fouls.  Refs calling an iffy charge against Tatum and then swallow the whistle when he gets hacked swooping to the hoop for the basket.

Eh, he had two bigger trailers behind him that would've likely blocked him. For most players I agree with you, but Larkin is pretty small and could've easily had that blocked.

Plus, it got Rozier an easy look to get him going. That's big for us.

Philly used up a time out cuz JB pressured simmons lol
Simmons is rattled.

He gets rattled pretty easily.  Stay aggressive on D against him.  I know he isn't taking any shots outside of 10 feet, but we need to pressure him to cut off his passing angles..

Illyasova is guarding Horford and we're barely taking advantage.

It's like the reverse of last game, now Philly can't miss in the 2nd.  All started by Rozier's inexplicable mistake of leaving Redick open in the corner.

Tatum's 3rd was huge.  We were playing great with him in the lineup.

Great way to end the half with a set play.

That run really started when Tatum picked up that third foul, which was a textbook charge by him. He has to be smarter on the fastbreak; he's so valuable to our offense right now that he can't be making those types of mistakes.

Also, no more Average Al in the second half. He has to show up and we can take this thing.

Big 3 by Jaylen to cut it to 3 at the half.  We can win this game.  Just gotta bring the def in the 2nd half, stay attached to their shooters, and not give away off possessions by throwing the ball away.  Smart had 2 or 3 horrible turnovers, Tatum did as well.  We can't have those and win on the road in the playoffs.

Ya, he has 4 turnovers and 3 fouls. He needs to A) Stop losing the ball on drives and B) Get better at reacting to double teams.

All in all, not too upset with where we are right now. If even one of Rozier or Horford show up we can win this game.

3 point game at halftime is pretty good.

The Celtics took 42 shots in that half and 22 of them were 3's. They've gotta find a way to get things moving to the rim.

Smart and MM with 9 shots each, both only made 3 of their 9. 

Tatum: 6 shots
Horford: 3
Brown: 5

Yeah, that's not going to work.

Brown looks fine,he needs to start and play his regular minutes and get more shots. If he can't he shouldn't be playing at all.

The thing I hate about Morris is that there are just so many opportunities here he could make one more pass and it would be so much better a look. he has Brown wide open in the corner one pass away on that last three he took, but you know he's not gonna pass it.

We need some offensive production from Al in the 2nd half.  Some post ups on switches, some drives to the rim.  He can't be passive.

He's not really taking the ball off the dribble, nor making moves towards the basket.  I wonder if he still doesn't feel confident in his first step.....

You can actually see Brown hang his head when he didn't swing it. Who made him king tough nuts somebody needs to call him out for stuff like that it kills the offense.

He's only played 12 minutes, and he has made some pretty explsoives drives like the one he got free throws on, a break away where Embiid fouled him to stop the break. The one where Embiid recovered to bother a layyup. But ya, they havent been running the same actions with him as they did before the injury. I suspect if he gets through this game, and maybe the next one okay they'll start ramping his minutes and touches back up.

It's not just Morris. Tatum, Brown, and even Rozier are almost complete back holes, imo, although at least Terry has shown improvement in that department. I think.

Nope, he just came in voluntarily.  He loves the Celtics.

Whenever Morris gets the ball, no matter where he is on the court or how many defenders are in front of him, I know the possession is ending with him taking the shot.

It's getting frustrating. I don't mind his size up contested 2's if the clock is winding down but that should never be an option with 10+ seconds left on the clock.
This times a million, run the best lineup here no more Morris shots rest of the way.

17-8 on fouls is unbelievable. There should never be a discrepancy where we have over twice as many fouls as the opposing team in a one point game. Just complete incompetence by the officials to call a consistent standard of what is a foul.

The main reporter for Philly is a girl named Jess that seems like she started watching the sport 2 years ago. Yet they just asked her expert opinion about the game. It's unreal how unqualified some of these people are yet they get shoved in our face bc they are semi cute and can name players.

what matters ...

is she hot ?


Lmfa0, TP SHAQ. You are so bad ;D. Honestly, though, almost all of these female sideline reporters, especially on TNT, are current/former beauty queens ::). Sh1t p1sses me off, lol ;D.
I agree but thing is they make her out to be like our  A. Sherrod or something,not the Abby Chin type, eve tho I think  Abby is way more knowledgeable than your average sideline girl. And no the Philly girl even that attractive it makes no sense.

I don't even know as to who this person is, lol, nor do I care. Like at all. What ticks me off, though, is how these beauty queens seem to be able to get these jobs despite having exactly zero qualifications for the position, kind of like how sports shows ask various rappers as to their "analysis" pertaining to basketball and football, I believe. Like, WAT? :P Honestly, what possibly qualifies 2Chainz to talk about any kind of basketball on television, lol? Ugh.

Jalen has had an impact on this game defensively.  A steal, two blocks, a few times getting his hands in the passing lane.  It has helped, even if he isn't 100%.

I really expect a big philly win today. The fact it is close this late makes me feel even more confident for game 4

If we lose this game, even in a nail-biter, Game 4 could very well turn into a rout for the 76ers, imo.
Better to win this one then rest players in G4.

McConnell is moving into celtic killer group. Guys like Rashard Lewis, Jamal Crawford...etc.
Yeah, we need to stay the hell alert because he’s running on on the boards and going for steals.  Can’t afford to be lazy out there.

I think outside of Al, he's been the single most important player we've had in these playoffs.  We're just a different, more composed team, with him on the floor.

The kick ball call was regretfully... a correct call.

"A player shall not kick the ball or strike it with the fist. b. Kicking the ball or striking it with any part of the leg is a violation when it is an intentional act. The ball accidentally striking the foot, the leg or fist is not a violation.Dec 26, 2014"

I mean, Jesus Christ, Brad, we have like 7 empty possessions in a row, and yet you simply let them play through it and don't call a TO when we have three left? Do your freaking job. That stretch was just begging for us to take the lead for good, but you sat on your hands and let it go to waste.

I mean, we ARE two wins away from the ECF after losing 2 All-Stars... I think he's done his job.

Can’t buy a three.  Will need one down the stretch here.

That’s it. If Tatum hits his free throws and we hit one of those wide open 3s, we’re in great shape. I wouldn’t say they’ve been terrible possessions. Just missed shots.

Ridiculous how poor NBA officiating is. Cost Boston the game in Milwaukee and now today. Just pathetic.

The NBA doesn't like sweeps.  Costs them ad revenue.  Especially when Philly/Boston and all these young guys are way more interesting than Cavs/Toronto.

They cost us championships.

You mean all those tick tack fouls in the first 4 minutes of the 4th quarter of game 7 of the 2010 finals that let the Lakers creep back into the game.  Cause I hear that!

Its amazing how much of a more heady and hearty player a one legged Jaylen Brown is than a fully healthy Ben Simmons.
Celtics are just a smarter team than the Sixers.

Unfortunately, I'll have to disagree with you on this one, here.
Yes, continue...

Well, I guess that that really depends on as to how you define intelligence in this context, but for me I just think that the 76ers do a far better job in identifying and exploiting mismatches, unfortunately :-\.

Why waste 8 seconds before calling TO?!

He wants the last shot. No matter what.

How does wasting 8 seconds help that?

Let's us score quick instead of holding the ball

By the way Embiid, I'm not impressed with Philly's fans.  C's fans are louder.  More passionate.  And more knowledgeable.

Tonight they were like Ben Simmons.  When things get tight and the game is on the line, they begin to fade.

I wonder if the confetti cost the Sixers the game.  Belinelli making that shot on their home court gave them a huge momentum burst.    All of the Sixers players' adrenaline has to be through the roof, only to have a 7 minute delay due to confetti causing them all to cool off.

Brad just answered the everyone's question.  He didn't call a timeout with 16 seconds cause he likes to see.  Wanted to see if they were able to get an easy bucket out in transition and not screw that up if that was a possibility.

He also twice said that he been "coaching" in the NBA for 25 years and hammering Brown for having Simmons inbound.  He's there best passer and worst shooter, of course he's going to inbound.  You don't want him to shoot!

Pretty amazing what has happened in this series. I thought all along that we would win, but I thought it'd be in 6 or 7.

But one thing is clear - this Philly team was incredibly overrated based on that late season run against primarily tanking teams. And unfortunately, too many people on here drank the Philly koolaid and overrated them, too.

I'm really starting to get this feeling in the back of my mind that we might actually make a Finals run without our two best players.  :o

Ben Simmons really does crumble

Embiid too.  26 shots for 22 points and that key turnover.

Yep. And mostly facing single coverage. And never getting travels called while he hops on his pivot foot. If he wants to shoot that inefficiently, he can keep doing it the rest of the way.

Regardless of the outcome of this series, I think it's amazing what Philly was able to accomplish this season.  They are well ahead of schedule and this is probably their most successful season since Iverson.  That said, they should consider hiring a real coach after this season.  It's great that Brett Brown had that win streak with them, but he's been awful in these playoffs.  It's rare for a coach to survive post-tank.  Probably time for them to bring in someone real.

Throughout all the frustrations, raging at refs, raging at missed FT's, praising folks, celebrating makes, it was a hard fought win and a battle that we won at the end. The end of the 4th definitely gave me a heart attack as connection problems hit again on this site, but I was seeing some folks like Kaufman and others on Twitter talking confetti, "OH MY GOD", etc. lol  :P

Tonight proved why making the playoffs and losing early is still better than losing and sucking on purpose.  If you preach a losing culture, when you finally do get on the bigger stage this is what happens.  The 76ers were LUCKY to get the scrub Heat in the first round.  Our younger guys knew what it took to win under pressure.  The Process is a joke and Philly will forever be in our rear view mirror.

Is anyone else annoyed by how, in an almost casually-dismissive way, it's a foregone conclusion that the 76ers are the more talented team? That's just NOT TRUE.

Horford, Tatum and Brown vs Embiid, Simmons and Redick is at worst a wash. Rozier and Morris are probably better than Saric and Covington. Gah!

i cannot conceive of lebron wanting to come to a team that is this mentally weak and this poorly coached. lebron has zero time to waste waiting for kids to mature.

lebron may jump the sinking cleveland ship, but it wont be for philly.

i was shocked at how simmons crumbled in big moments. he may yet shape up and become tougher, but for now he has a major problem.

Seriously though, C's were just more composed, had a better balance on D, no great surprise this is 3-0

By the way, at the end of regulation we had 20 fouls called on our team vs. 10 to Philly. That's insane.

I want Jayson Tatum to be a Celtic for his entire career.

And that's it. I'm done.

His idol is Kobe Bryant

he definitely has some of the same traits

ice in his veins.  So money

Our kids grew up idolizing tough players like MJ and Kobe. No wonder why they aren't afraid of the limelights.

Regardless of the outcome of this series, I think it's amazing what Philly was able to accomplish this season.  They are well ahead of schedule and this is probably their most successful season since Iverson.  That said, they should consider hiring a real coach after this season.  It's great that Brett Brown had that win streak with them, but he's been awful in these playoffs.  It's rare for a coach to survive post-tank.  Probably time for them to bring in someone real.
Brown is still teaching these guys and they have $ coming up. I stick with Brown unless they can lure LeBron or another real FA to actually be contenders. They got no shot against a healthy C''s
i cannot conceive of lebron wanting to come to a team that is this mentally weak and this poorly coached. lebron has zero time to waste waiting for kids to mature.

lebron may jump the sinking cleveland ship, but it wont be for philly.

i was shocked at how simmons crumbled in big moments. he may yet shape up and become tougher, but for now he has a major problem.

He is soft.

He's a great athlete, but his conditioning is poor.

They handled him with kid gloves all year, limiting his minutes instead of ramping him up.  And the late-season injury didn't help him.  The result is that he struggles to play for more than a few minutes at a time.  He really isn't in NBA shape right now.

The Sixers made this bed all year, and now they're lying in it.

Should've done that in all three games. Simmons should be coming off the bench.

Is anyone else annoyed by how, in an almost casually-dismissive way, it's a foregone conclusion that the 76ers are the more talented team? That's just NOT TRUE.

Horford, Tatum and Brown vs Embiid, Simmons and Redick is at worst a wash. Rozier and Morris are probably better than Saric and Covington. Gah!

The +/-'s for this game are comical.

Tatum was clearly the best player on the floor, and that was clear by his + 24 (!)in a 3 point win for us. But Morris (?!) of all people was the only other one in double figures at + 13. Noone else was better than a +4.

So I just finished watching the game...and even though I knew we won it was still exciting because I did not know how I guess.

That woman that called the game should be on sixers staff and coach them ..sheesh is she from philly or something?

Embiid  dunks on Al and she goes into what can only be described as orgasmic fits.

DB? ;) ::) ;D

Yeah
Yeah, she’s terrrrrrible

She was bad enough when she was calling women's college basketball games, but once she started to emulate Momma There Goes That Man ::), I mean, yeah. When Pierce hit one of his postseason daggers against the Raptors as a member of the Wizards, I can still hear her saying, "he/that is a baaaaaaaaad man" ::). Ugh.

Brad has masterfully coached this series. He's rendered Simmons ineffective and Embiid is playing right into our hands with the postups.
Stevens called the fake play and timeout at the end to see how the Sixers were defending, then calls another timeout and adjusts. Crazy good
Yeah, hindsight is 20/20. If the Sixers had scored, being stuck on your own side of the court with 1.5 seconds to go on the clock and no way to advance the ball because of a questionable bluff is perhaps just crazy. But to the victor go the spoils, so...

I just wanted to give a HUGE thank you to all on this thread!  ;D

I was outside with family so couldn't watch the game, but had this forum game thread up almost the entire time (lol). Was frustrating at times with connection errors on the site and occassionally my 4G/LTE going slow depending where we were, but was great to follow along the game with everyone's posts here!

Throughout all the frustrations, raging at refs, raging at missed FT's, praising folks, celebrating makes, it was a hard fought win and a battle that we won at the end. The end of the 4th definitely gave me a heart attack as connection problems hit again on this site, but I was seeing some folks like Kaufman and others on Twitter talking confetti, "OH MY GOD", etc. lol  :P

Who prioritizes family over a C's playoff game??  :P
My wife, apparently, since she chose a girl's night out so I'm solo parenting for the night :)

Lol. Depending on the age that could be bad - or really bad.

Luckily we got our baby to nap through most of the game. So my wife watched most of the game with me. During the 4th and OT she was like, "How the hell do you do this all of the time? My heart is about to explode with nervousness!" lol

SAME. Especially if it's a road game. God knows what would have happened if I actually watched this entire game :P

Embiid is really complaining about calls after this game and the foul disparity there was in their favor??

That's why they will keep losing. He just doesn't get it. Until you own up to your own mistakes and correct them, you will keep losing. Horford schooled him down the stretch, and stuffed him twice.

He's 3.5 and has always had a mega late bedtime (past 9pm). We even watched part of the game together, but he doesn't have attention span for more (unless it's Paw Patrol or Ben and Holly's Little Kingdom, apparently).

It truly is remarkable.  I've been saying all season that I honestly think Tatum is close to as talented as Durant was as a rookie. I  live in Seattle and watched Durant a ton his rookie year (Brown actually reminds me a ton of young Jeff Green back then, but that's a different story).  Durant shot terribly that rookie year.  Like 42% from the field and 29% from three, but he had a green light to shoot as much as he wanted.  I imagine the reps helped his development.

That was the concern with Tatum... that being part of such a loaded roster might stunt his development.  I worried that he wouldn't get the reps and wouldn't get the necessary confidence.  The silver lining of the injuries is that Tatum is now getting an opportunity to be one of the main guys on this team on the big stage.  A huge amount of responsibility has fallen on him.  And the kid is meeting and exceeding expectations.

He's now averaging 18.1 points, 4.7 rebounds, 3 assists, 1.3 steals with 45%/30.7%/82.6% shooting in 10 playoff games.

Compare that to Durant's rookie season where he averaged 20.3 points, 4.4 rebounds, 2.4 asssits, 1 steal with 43%/29%/87% shooting for a 20 win Sonic team.

Tatum genuinely has a shot to end up a true superstar.  We haven't had a true superstar prospect since Bird.  Loved Pierce, but his ceiling wasn't as high as Tatum.  It's exciting.  And most importantly it means Boston could reasonably have their 4th star to pair with Kyrie, Hayward and Horford.   Our only hope of competing with the 4-star Warriors is to have one of our young guys develop into a star as well.   When you also consider the contributions of Brown and Rozier (or moving those guys for Kawhi), it makes our future pretty darn interesting.

Was away from home, but watched the game at Island's Burgers somewhere in the OC near Los Angeles.

Was screaming and cheering for the Celtics after they won and everyone around me were like "dafuq" or they gave me the looks cuz they were either 76ers fans or Lakers fans LOL.

Those guys Tatum, Horford and Rozier were beasts. Especially watching them stealing the ball from the 76ers late in the game that sealed the deal.

And get those confetti outta here. Game ain't even over and they be celebrating for making a game-tying 2-pointer sending it to OT. And get Joel Embiid's laughing ass outta here too (his dunk over a Celtics player); the Celtics had the last laugh and I was glad.

The Sixers are whining about the refs in game three? Ho ho ho ho!

"While Embiid owned up to his team's mistakes, he also pointed out that Horford wasn't called for a single foul while guarding him throughout the game.

"I don't see how it's possible for someone to guard me and have zero fouls. I thought a couple plays, it wasn't fair," he said. "But like I said, you gotta give Al a lot of credit. He made some plays for his team, and he got them the win. But like I said, I'm too big. I guess it's the playoffs, it's my first time here, so I'm learning, but I'm too big not to be fouled every time I go to the basket, every time I post up.""

nah. I’m talking about green during his first couple years in the league.  He looked like he could be really good some day.  Well before he went to Boston and had a heart condition.  I expect brown surpass green.  Second year green was pretty similar to 2nd year brown.

2nd year green:  17 points 7 rebounds, 2 assists, 1 steal, 45%/39%/79% shooting

2nd year brown:  14 points 5 rebounds, 1 assist, 1 streal, 46%/39%/65% shooting

I couldn't watch the game last night so instead I was compulsively checking the boxscore at a party, and I thought we were done heading into OT and then when we were done by 1 at the end... but man was I wrong. Brad Stevens is indeed a genius, Al is clutch, and Tatum is unbelievable, I've never seen a rookie with so much poise, it's come to the point where I'm as confident when he gets the ball at the end of the game to make a play like I am when Al has it (or when IT did last year).

It's amazing to think how much better he can get in the next few years and especially in his 2nd season. Glad to see Rozier bring it on the road too. Being up 3-0 is already huge but I think that winning this kind of game on the road can only boost the team's confidence (not that they were lacking in that department to begin with...) and have them win game 4 to end it quickly.

Tatum was an astonishing +24 in the game tonight- beyond incredible

(https://i.imgur.com/IwTTwrG.jpg)
It truly is remarkable.  I've been saying all season that I honestly think Tatum is close to as talented as Durant was as a rookie. I  live in Seattle and watched Durant a ton his rookie year (Brown actually reminds me a ton of young Jeff Green back then, but that's a different story).  Durant shot terribly that rookie year.  Like 42% from the field and 29% from three, but he had a green light to shoot as much as he wanted.  I imagine the reps helped his development.

That was the concern with Tatum... that being part of such a loaded roster might stunt his development.  I worried that he wouldn't get the reps and wouldn't get the necessary confidence.  The silver lining of the injuries is that Tatum is now getting an opportunity to be one of the main guys on this team on the big stage.  A huge amount of responsibility has fallen on him.  And the kid is meeting and exceeding expectations.

He's now averaging 18.1 points, 4.7 rebounds, 3 assists, 1.3 steals with 45%/30.7%/82.6% shooting in 10 playoff games.

Compare that to Durant's rookie season where he averaged 20.3 points, 4.4 rebounds, 2.4 asssits, 1 steal with 43%/29%/87% shooting for a 20 win Sonic team.

Tatum genuinely has a shot to end up a true superstar.  We haven't had a true superstar prospect since Bird.  Loved Pierce, but his ceiling wasn't as high as Tatum.  It's exciting.  And most importantly it means Boston could reasonably have their 4th star to pair with Kyrie, Hayward and Horford.   Our only hope of competing with the 4-star Warriors is to have one of our young guys develop into a star as well.   When you also consider the contributions of Brown and Rozier (or moving those guys for Kawhi), it makes our future pretty darn interesting.

That Jeff Green comparison to Jaylen Brown is so lazy and inaccurate. Jaylen Brown is a killer, Jeff Green is food!

Totally agree. Almost nothing like Green.

Agree with LB that Tatum is best prospect since Bird. Maybe Reggie could have approached superstar status one day..
That Brown comment was put there to passively aggressively stir the pot and get a reaction.

Don't feed him......oh, I mean into it.
nah. I’m talking about green during his first couple years in the league.  He looked like he could be really good some day.  Well before he went to Boston and had a heart condition.  I expect brown surpass green.  Second year green was pretty similar to 2nd year brown.

2nd year green:  17 points 7 rebounds, 2 assists, 1 steal, 45%/39%/79% shooting

2nd year brown:  14 points 5 rebounds, 1 assist, 1 streal, 46%/39%/65% shooting
Yeah, but second year Green was also playing 7 more mpg than Brown did this year, and it was Jeff Green's peak. I guess you could make the argument that Green almost returned to that level while he was here, but his rebounding and efficiency were both down.

I don't think Brown is near his peak at all. That's what makes the Green comparison a bit lazy

You could find almost literally hundreds of NBA players who had similar stats at similar stages of career, at similar heights...

LOL, ah yes, the famous LarBrd33 “analysis” of comparing limited stats without context. It’s led to such home dingers as “Jaylen Brown is a tier 3 prospect” and “Okafor is good.”

How many wins did that year 2 Jeff Green team have? Were they a 1 seed?

The Sixers are whining about the refs in game three? Ho ho ho ho!

"While Embiid owned up to his team's mistakes, he also pointed out that Horford wasn't called for a single foul while guarding him throughout the game.

"I don't see how it's possible for someone to guard me and have zero fouls. I thought a couple plays, it wasn't fair," he said. "But like I said, you gotta give Al a lot of credit. He made some plays for his team, and he got them the win. But like I said, I'm too big. I guess it's the playoffs, it's my first time here, so I'm learning, but I'm too big not to be fouled every time I go to the basket, every time I post up.""
A spoiled, enabled point of view.  It is much like society today.  This is why it is a pleasure to watch how the Cs play and conduct themselves.

Embiid walks like a crippled praying mantis

Simmons has no shot but a dunk.

Four role players who play no defense

A coach who sat on the bench while the owners tanked away for years......appears to have forgotten how to coach a team to a win ......he is a great loser tho  ::)

yet all the morons think Philly has a better club ...smh

the Raptors and Bucks are better than Philly.

This one was too easy  ;)

I know I'm late to the (confetti) party, but I had a friend's birthday and a dinner yesterday, so I couldn't watch the game live. Since I have League Pass I just avoided Twitter, so I didn't know anything about the game, and when I got home at 3 AM I watched the game as it was live.

WHAT.A.GAME!!!! Jayson Tatum was fantastic. I know it has been said a million times already, be he certainly looks like a veteran out there. Yes, he missed 3 free throws, but I think that's more of a freak accident that him being overwhelmed by the moment. Because after that he kept us in the game, scoring clutch baskets and going fearless against Embiid, a candidate to Defensive Player of the Year. Ridiculous.

Al is the perfect team player. He does everything you need to win a game. Baynes is a tough man. And Brad Stevens is on another level. The guy is a wizard.

How can you not love this team?!

On the flip side, I know nothing about basketball. I though Philly would win this series in six. That can't happen now. Oh well...

Is it just me or were the Celtics getting hammered yesterday with no calls? I mean Embid crying about no calls? I saw many times Celts getting slaughtered and absolutely no whistles. Philly had a total of 14 fouls in the entire game plus OT? My wife calls me Tommy Heinsohn but cmon man they swallowed the whistles for the Celts.

Ya the numbers are similar, but f you look at Jeff greens numbers and Tatums playoff numbers you could very easily say "Oh wow those numbers are really close except Jeff was a better rebounder!" The point being that the numbers Jeff and Jaylen have posted are absoluetly meaningless when trying to predict their future development. I mean you could just as easily say Jaylen has very similar number to Paul George and be equally right, so is Jaylen Paul George or Jeff green?

The major criticisim about Jefff Green is that he lacks killer instinct, or drive. Jaylen clearly has both of those in spades. Now if Jaylen peaks and never gets any better as a plyer then we can go ahead and make that compariosn, but for now I don't seee it. I mean look no further than their shot profiles. Jeff green shot 55% of his shots from 0-3 feet or 3 point range. For Jaylen that number is 72%. They guard different positions. They don't play the same type of game at all.

I think, despite some glaring flaws, PHI will play the game of their lives and take Game 4 (though not in blowout fashion, but still a solid win).

BUT then Boston will take care of business at home in Game 5.

You can tell this PHI team is gassed and also demoralized too. I saw Embiid complaining about foul calls and Brett Brown's statements about "being in good spirits" and that "things just happen" as a sign of that. Brett Brown is also taking a pretty big blow in this series, although it's not entirely his fault. Stevens is just greater, and frankly some guys (looking at Simmons) aren't executing that well.

Well, on that regard... unless I've missed something, I've never seen a concerted effort to get donations. I'm sure plenty would consider donating if it's easy to do (with options of anonymity) and would guarantee a lot of improvement on forum performance.
