Sixers and Celtics to renew playoff rivalry

Celtics-76ers: Best Moments From 2002, 2012 Playoff Series (Both Went the Distance)

He's the only upright All-Star the Celtics have as Gordon Hayward recovers from a fractured ankle and Kyrie Irving mends from knee surgery. This seems like more of the same. The Celtics will need to make this series ugly with a lot of grind out games.

For me, I remember exactly where I was at when the Sixers fell to the Celtics in Game 7 of the Eastern Conference Semifinals back on May 26, 2012. "Some way, somehow, we figure it out".

Tatum is one of the young Boston players who have grown quickly over the past three weeks. Because of it, the Celtics that have squeezed out their best basketball despite the multiple subtractions to their roster. I expect him to put up big numbers, pushing near 60 fantasy points.

Milwaukee Bucks: 3 takeaways from Game 7 vs. Celtics (read here): Lastly, Matthew Hallett over at Hoops Habit highlighted his three biggest takeaways from the Bucks' Game 7 loss to the Celtics from Saturday night. There is a dilemma between Aron Baynes and Semi Ojeleye, and that could end up being the most important rotation decision in this series. But at least they will be at home, where they are a flawless 4-0 in these playoffs.

The Sixers are first of all playoff teams in offensive boards per game (13.2) and total rebounds per game (50).

"I'm expecting the same treatment as far as them not even caring that I'm from Philadelphia", he said after practice on Sunday, a day after the Celtics advanced by eliminating the Milwaukee Bucks in Game 7 of their first-round series.

"And I think it's fun". "It's what we've been doing as a group". We didn't treat this any differently. Al was our steadying force, but to see what those young guys were able to do was great.

It is hard for Stevens to really trust either of these guys with a significant role, but they need to make it work.

According to SportsLine data scientist Stephen Oh, the 76ers have a 79 percent chance to win the series.

Brown left in the second quarter after tweaking his hamstring and did not return.

He said afterward that trainers believe he has a Grade 1 sprain.

Brown said he was still sore after the game and will undergo an MRI on Sunday. They will meet the Philadelphia 76ers, with Game 1 in Boston on Monday night.

"Whatever it takes, I wouldn't miss this series for the world", Brown said Saturday night. But, unfortunately, we can not move to the second round.

It wasn't quite "Beat L.A.!"

What That Game 7 Might Mean For Giannis In The Future (read here): Despite the result, Andrew Perna of Real GM wrote on the experience Antetokounmpo gained by playing in a Game 7 and how other current greats around the league have propelled their team to new heights following similar experiences. Here's the six players we are using for the contest.

That being said, the Celtics can still get some confidence from knowing they won the season series 3-1, and there was a pretty solid indication of what needs to be done to win. They're an excellent defensive team.

Boston improved to 20-4 all-time in Game 7s at home.
