If the Sixers win they will get no credit for beating an injured team.

If the Sixers lose they will be ridiculed for losing to an injured team.

Rightfully so.

That's completely dismissing the entire Celtics roster & Stevens and essentially implying that Kyrie was the entire team this year... yeah, that's just complete and utter retarded nonsensical garbage idiocy. Clear enough?

The Celtics were good because of their defense. That's it. That's the only reason they were good. No other reason. The defense is still in tact.

Are they disadvantaged without their best iso scorer? Of course. But their defense got them here, not him.

That is all true, but that is just how life works when you are the favorite. It's like playing a game of hoops against a girl. If you win, you beat a girl. If you lose, you lost to a girl. There's no W either way.

With Jaylen out with the Hamstring injury, offense is going to be tough to come by.

I think Embiid will be the difference maker in this series. He plays well, the Sixers win. If the C's can contain him, we have a chance at winning.

Unfortunately I think the Sixers take it in 6. They can probably steal one in Boston.

I don't like to predict Celtic losses so I'm not going to predict anything. Losing Jaylen Brown just makes it ridiculous. It's just not the Celtics' year. They need 30 from Tatum, another 30 from Rozier and 20/10 from Horford.

Very sick of the way the troll wars have centered around Irving this year. I truly hope he never reads this board, he became the centerpiece of an argument over fans and haters of another player. Ironically the desire to not have his career caught up in the whirlwind of a certain players legacy may be the reason he wanted out of Cleveland to begin with. Some of you are nauseating.

Yeah, he says that, and I'm sure that's part of it. But Kyrie wanted to be the clear cut #1 option and he's always wanted that. That's the biggest reason. Why he couldn't just come out and say it is lol...

He has never clearly stated the reason. It doesn't much matter as far as I'm concerned so long as the Celtics know what it is so that they can keep him happy to be here.

He never stated it because there wasn't one thing.

First and foremost, he wanted to be the man... the rest... he wanted to play for a competent coach, he was tired of the LeDramaShitShow, and he wanted to play for a team that hadn't at all discussed trading him. It was multifaceted. I'm sure he's a lifer in Boston, well... until Ainge trades him anyways.

Its gonna be really tough without Brown.

The Celtics, unlike the Heat, have guys to body Embiid and make him work (Baynes, Monroe, Horford, Yabusele).

They also guard the perimeter very well (Smart, Rozier, Ojeleye, and hopefully Brown is back by game 2).

Cant predict a C's win with all the injuries but it will be competitive.

Ultimately, it doesn't matter because the Celts ceased being serious contenders when Hayward got hurt; no one from the east is winning the title this year.

The Celtics' run starts next year. Philly can have the hype. C's should get the banner(s). :rockon:

I posted this in the other thread yesterday:

The true key to this series is whether the Celtics can control the non-stars of the 76ers, much like how they shut down the Bucks' outside of Middleton and Antetokoumpo.

J.J. Reddick is key, because he led the 76ers in scoring in the first round. The Celtics will try to limit him with their resident pitbull Marcus Smart.

However, it's interesting to note that Embiid had trouble scoring on Al Horford this season, hitting a mortal .357 of his shots. Horford was also effective on Ben Simmons, but he just cannot guard both of them at the same time, so it'll be up to Coach Stevens to figure this out.

If the Celtics slow down the pace, keep the score under 100, apply the necessary grit and their intangibles, they can hang in there and maybe steal the series. But the Sixers just have way too much talent. The absence of Irving and Hayward really hurts here.

Philadelphia in six.

LOL at this. Maybe but the Sixers aren't hype and thinking Kyrie "I am injured all the time' Irving is going to be healthy is very wishful thinking. Nothing is ever guaranteed so we'll see on the Celtics run.

^If The Celtics had Irving and Hayward they beat the Sixers in 5, maybe 6, lol. Their absence is what makes this a series.

Aye, Irving would be able to close out the 76ers in the fourth quarter with clutch points, and Hayward could fill in any necessary spot (help run the offense, score in halfcourt, run the fast break, play great team defense). By next year the accelerated growth of Brown and Tatum will push the Celtics into 60 win territory.

But now that Brown is hobbled, and the Celtics don't have enough depth to counter the 76ers, they'll lose in 6. Would be 5 if their coach was anybody but Brad Stevens.

Healthy Celtics with the best coach in the game are real contenders capable of give GSW/Hou a run for their money and would beat 76ers in 5-6.

This Celtics are outmatched. 76ers in 5-6

In the future, mature healthy 76ers vs healthy Celtics should be an epic series.

sixerfan82
04-30-2018, 09:46 AM
I suspect this goes 6.

Stevens is a great coach, but Boston has no answer for Embiid. Boston's best chance to win this series is probably if they go to Philly up 2-0. If we can at least get the split, this doesn't go past 6.

GOBB
04-30-2018, 11:39 AM
Yeah Sixers in 6, Stevens is good enough to get Boston 2 wins. Depending who Sixers add via draft, free agency and/or trade. Plus the development of Fultz. The Celtics Sixers rivalry may be sparked back up. Would be great.

04-30-2018, 12:28 PM
This team could test our mettle. In the case we do happen to reach the finals and play lights out shooting teams like Houston or GS. Boston shoots very well and scores in bunches. That's a thing we struggle against. Letting teams light us up and not having the ability to fire back immediately against a great 3 pt team.

I'm also not going to buy into the Boston is injured thing. Even with Kyrie and Harward I believe the current squat competes. We are given what we are given.

Anyways... anyone who thinks Philly is going to waltz through this series is in all probability sorely mistaken.

The Celtics have been a good team all year regardless of who is in or out of the lineup because they don’t depend on any one person. They play as a team and their defense is tremendous.

I think Philly wins in 6 but it wouldn’t surprise me one bit for Boston to win.

He's obviously trolling. Called Stevens, who's widely regarded as a top 3 coach in the NBA, "extremely underrated" :facepalm

I got 6ers in 6 either way, just expected a beatdown with Brown also missing. 5 day break messing with sixer rhythm. and nobody foresaw warriors getting this good, I never thought theyd be better than 15' year.

also jeff, either reprogram this website with web support or implement it via tapatalk. thjs is brutal to use w cellphone 😔
I hope they finish in 6 too, im actually scared for a game 7 in Boston, especially if Brown returns.

No, because they dont play the same with those two. That's not how basketball works.

In the begging of the year and against Golden State they were actually the favorite to come out of the east, early and was giving Golden State hell at times. So more confidence with these young players isn't going to hurt them but only make them better for next year.

Tatum would have been starting even with Hayward healthy. The starting lineup preseason was Kyrie, Brown, Hayward, Tatum and Horford. Rozier would still get his shots and opportunities. This Celtics team is more like the spurs where everyone gets opportunity.
Starting or not, there were going to be a lot of times where Stevens had to choose between Hayward, Brown and Tatum in a tweener rotation. This team doesn

They actually were swept by a NBA team that were in the NBA finals against Chicago Bulls and were the top team in the west, Utah Jazz and the Spurs beat us a became champions drafting the best power forward ever and had twin towers and only when Phil brought in veteran players like Harper and others who know how to win and Phil challenged and brought the best out of Shaq and Kobe matured and learned then we won rings.

Also don't forget Houston and their stacked championship team with the jet an Horry who beat the Knicks who was giving Chicago hell and were the second best team in the east.

Sometimes teams have to grow and learn how to win and be champions. Just like Chicago with Jordan did. :kobe:

36 minutes per game and 25 games for Fultz. 33 minutes per game and 29 games for Tatum. Fultz was a better shooter and scorer coming out of college. But kids like you struggle with reading and comprehension.

Honestly I have liked the way we have played the Sixers all year. Tonight was no different.

I think we have a great shot at winning this series. We have been locked in so far at home and the confidence keeps growing... I will not be surprised to see us actually have a good game on the road for once in the upcoming games of this series.

To all the Sixers fans making excuses about having too much time off... FOH with that. You played a team thats missing three of its top four players tonight. You got smacked up and down the court.

I don't think Philly can handle 7 games of this Celtics defense and or stop its athleticism.

It will definitely be a much more competitive series than tonight implied, but we have too many defensive weapons to throw at every single player. None of your players get a break at any point no matter who is subbed into the game.

I feel like the Bucks were a good warmup round for us leading to this series. We just spent seven games figuring out ways to limit one of the biggest freaks of nature in the game. The Heat for the Sixers on the other hand... not really gonna prepare you for how this Celtics team has been playing.

I am sort of high and rambling so sorry bout dat but yeah Celtics in 6.

The biggest problem I see is the Sixers have no answer for the Celtics perimeter players. Rozier, Horford and Tatum will get theirs. It gets even scarier once Brown returns. Celtics are just a bad matchup for Philly

Brett Brown defensive gameplan was horrible. I expect him to adjust by Game two and Sixers don

Sixers have a great future but they really have to find a perimeter half court scorer. Their role players are so limited as creators, Saric can do some stuff but outside of him...Redick, Covington, Belinelli, Ersan, Amir, McConnell, etc. These guys just aren't players that can challenge a great defense in ways beyond catch and shooting. And as great as Ben is he's not ready to impose his will in the half court, when Boston locks down on their shooters and closes off his passing options things get rough.

Also some of their wings are atrocious defensively, Boston was targeting guys like Belinelli and Redick constantly. They had Redick guarding Tatum for good chunk of the game for seemingly no f*cking reason at all.

Which is why surrounding Ben with nothing but 3 and D players is needed. And Fultz was drafted to be that guy you speak of. A 3 level scorer who can get their own buckets. Hoping that is the plan in the draft, free agency and/or trade is to add those guys if we are short on options. Mikal Bridges is a need. Also need more of Cov. Can

Philly is much better than everyone thought they would be, including their own management. If someone told them before the season that they would win 52 games they probably would have laughed. Vegas had the over under at 40 so I wouldn't make a big deal about losing game 1 of the 2nd round on the road.

Maybe some of their bandwagoners got carried away. Big deal

One of the Sixers' starting forwards plays PG, so they'll never have great teamwork or run a high-level system, and will usually lose to less talented teams that DO have great teamwork by employing a high-level system.. just like lebron's teams, except Simmons doesn't have a super team like lebron did

If you watched philly play this season and think they don’t have great teamwork you’re just being dishonest.


Once again 3ball... you abuse your initially true theories which makes others mistrust you everywhere. The Sixers were the 2nd leading assist team in the league this year. They start Dario, Reddick, and Covington on the wings with Simmons controlling the action and Embiid at C. They are perfectly proportioned and accustomed to playing team basketball. They will still win this series so long as Simmons and Embiid are healthy. C's are just riding momentum at home.

Again, you've clearly not watched a single Philly game. Not one. Stop posting.

Im waiting for Game 2 to be complete so we can stop with the ridiculous comments

Philly can get swept and it doesn't make 3ball's statement any more accurate or any less ridiculous, dude's a toolbag.

Yea it has nothing to do with this series. Just watching them casually now and then...you can see how great the ball movement is. You could put Simmons in any system and he wouldnt hinder it unless it demanded the point be aggressive looking for 3s. They pass the absolute **** outta the ball.
