Jaylen Brown Hopes To Play In Game 1 Vs. 76ers

Giannis Antetokounmpo will be aiming to lead the Bucks to victory

Monday features just one NBA Playoff game as the 76ers and Celtics open their Eastern Conference semifinals. Finally, he gave one more huge arm swing in celebration of a gritty first-round victory.

Tatum is just one of the young faces that remain on Boston's bench that have grown up fast over the past three weeks.

Aftermath: Boston went on to have an awesome series with the East's other Big 3 (Miami), but lost in seven games and eventually broke up. And, for me, that time there was just me enjoying, with the players and with the fans that were there, and it's just emotional. We ended up in the same spot as a year ago.

After finishing the regular season on fire, then cruising to a 4-1 series in over the Heat in the first round, the 76ers had plenty of reason to be confident heading into their second-round series with the Celtics - especially considering how shorthanded Boston was.

It was Rozier who accidentally referred to Bucks' guard Eric Bledsoe as Drew Bledsoe after Game 1, causing Bledsoe to say "I don't know who the (expletive) Rozier is" after Game 2.

Personally, I'd like to see Brown on Simmons, Rozier on Redick, Tatum on Covington, Horford on Saric, and Baynes on Embiid. Although the Boston Celtics were undermanned, they had the backing of a superior coach and an organizational culture built on stability and empowerment.

"[The Sixers] are playing great". "I think everybody talks about Embiid and Simmons - and rightfully so". They're a better team on paper and they need to exploit that at every moment they can. His defensive versatility was vital when they played the 76ers.

Well, the Celtics can tell you first-hand, he's already pretty darn good. "I think Brett [Brown] is terrific, and on down the line, they are terrific".

Boston Celtics forward Al Horford will need to be aggressive against Philadelphia's frontcourt if the injury-riddled Celtics have any shot at winning.

Injuries forced Kyrie Irving and Marcus Smart to join Gordon Hayward and Daniel Theis as spectators by the end of the regular season. The Celtics guard gave him a bear hug from behind to prevent him from shooting, and Simmons pushed his hands away. Embiid is their best player and provides a huge challenge offensively and defensively. The team, although young, had a lot of guys playing that are still viable National Basketball Association players today (Evan Turner, Andre Iguodala, Thaddeus Young, Jrue Holiday, and Lou Williams). Tests on Sunday were negative, the coach said. Here's the six players we are using for the contest.

Tatum and Rozier were also big in Game 7.

Al Horford had 26 points and seven rebounds for Boston, which will host Game 2 on Thursday night.

The Sixers are first of all playoff teams in offensive boards per game (13.2) and total rebounds per game (50). He's excited about the more distant future when his All-Star teammates will be back but he's also excited about the right now - which starts Monday against Philadelphia.
