Dinged-up Celtics beat Bucks in Game 7, advance to play 76ers

That will put pressure on the Celtics to play the way they mostly did at home in sweeping the four games on the parquet in the first round against the Bucks, without as numerous lulls that allowed Milwaukee to extend the series to seven games. He's more than familiar with the history of the Celtics-Sixers rivalry. Ben Simmons had a brilliant series as he averaged 18 points, ten rebounds, and nine assists to lead the team. After six hard-fought games, the Celtics produced a convincing 112-96 Game 7 win at home.
After lucking into the second round (thanks to a Derrick Rose injury), the 76ers showed they weren't messing around against Boston.
While the Sixers dismissed Miami in five in the first round, Boston needed the full seven to advance. "If it takes for us to jaw back and forth and battle and push each other, it's whatever.it's just part of the game".
Milwaukee forward Khris Middleton topscored for the Bucks with 32 points, All-Star Giannis Antetokounmpo added 22 while guard Eric Bledsoe booed all night by Celtics fans had 23 points. It remains to be seen just what the Celtics have left in the tank, especially with such a quick turnaround.
Brown will leave some big shoes to fill if he sits. The second-year swingman is considered doubtful for Game 1, and chances are he won't be risked by Boston. That's when superstar Kyrie Irving injured his knee, requiring season-ending surgery. His potential absence would make it that much harder for Boston to find points against a formidable Philly defense.
It's nearly as if the Boston Celtics' guard morphs into an unstoppable blend of Allen Iverson and Steve Nash, with a confidence that darn-near tears the roof off the building.
Joel Embiid - Despite missing a good chunk of time due to his facial injury, Embiid hardly looked like he missed a beat against the Heat. Still, he hasn't let that impact his defensive effort. The rested 76ers are at -200 on the moneyline for several books with the points total at 205 for the game.
Al Horford also starred for Boston, finishing with 26 points and seven rebounds and hitting a triple with five minutes to go to keep their lead in double digits. Nevertheless, Rozier will have the task of helping carry this Celtics offense, which will be most likely missing Brown. They entered the playoffs wanting the game to grind down.
Embiid said Erving's message in the video on Monday morning referenced the intensity of the Celtics-Sixers rivalry. But don't sleep on JJ Redick. After scoring a career-high 20.1 points per game in the regular season, Middleton averaged 24.7 in the playoffs. Brown is questionable to paly tonight and Larkin definitely will have a bigger role if he can't play. The Celtics had the best defense in the National Basketball Association during the regular season, with the dogged Marcus Smart on the perimeter and the underrated Al Horford in the paint protecting the rim.
