Game 2 will be much difficult. But if we win, I think we can control this series.

A very brutal piece of illustration in the header.
It's is a huge game.
Philly has to adjust, we shot very well...
We will find out was it a fluke or truth.

My 3 keys to the game are:
- Stopping the 6ers transition, therefore their team 3pt efficiency and volume
- Evade the big men foul trouble. If Baynes picks up 2 fast, Horford has to take Embiid down.
- Exploiting the Reddick/Belinelli mismatch on the offensive end. It's a scoring resource.

This will be either a Sixers blowout or a close Celtics win. Hoping Boston can figure it out one more time.

Up two on this young sixers team would be big

I think a C's blowout or a close sixers win is more likely personally. Especially is Jaylen is back..

I said it before that if they control the pace of the game, there's a huge chance that C's advance to ECF.

I will say this, I don't disagree with them. I thought the crowd was pretty quite for a playoff game.
I found it odd that i could here Stevens on the sideline while the game was happening.
Hard to always tell on TV, but I've heard it much louder.
Anyway, GO CELTS.

I think the fans will respond to Embiid challenge and make some noise tonight!

yep .....we gonna need that sixth man " the crowd" to be very vocal ......refs can get caught up in the emotions of crowd , none are immune to to this on occasion. 

Asking them to win without Brown twice is wishing

Im satisfied with a split given the current injury situation.   

Next year philly will be our sons.

I expect this game will be a lot closer than Game 1, and PHI will certainly not shoot as poorly as they did behind the arc on Monday.

The key for the C's will be to weather their runs again, and frankly I think we'll need someone like Morris to step up big time tonight in terms of scoring. Horford's again going to have to be stellar on both ends of the floor tonight, and I don't think PHI has anyone who can effectively guard Tatum, so we may need aggressive Tatum to drop 20+ again (especially with Brown likely out again tonight).

Going to have to attack the Sixers shooters as well especially on the perimeter and force them inside. I'd much rather let them try a bunch of twos as opposed to letting them rain from downtown all night along. Embiid can have his 30+ so long as we *contain* their perimeter threats like Reddick, Covington, Illyasova, etc. Also keep Simmons outside the paint!

I DONT KNOW WHAT I THINK ANYMORE

Me too.  Game one was a shocker.  But the rationale for why the Sixers were off goes either in the direction of "C's Defense" or "Sixers Rust".    If it's something the C's really influenced, I guess we'll see tonight and that definitely changes my expectations -- at least for this series.
