    Let's take a little trip down memory lane and recap the story so far.....



    http://www.insidehoops.com/forum/sho...rs-Game-Thread



    Highlights from the previous meetings this season.












    Joel Embiid in October 2018:

    "This is not a rivalry. I don't know our record against them, but it's pretty bad. They always kick our ass."
    Joel Embiid in February 2020:

    “What I said was that All-Star Game fourth quarter, I’m out there with some of the guys that are considered the best players in the world and I’m out there just dominating, being unstoppable, doing whatever I want, especially in the post. So to me, I just felt like that was a chance for me to prove that I deserved being in that conversation of being the best player in the world.....

    Yea, f–k it. Yea, I believe I am [the best player in the world]. Yea, f–ck it. My bad. I do believe it. When I play like tonight anything can happen.”
    Now is the time to prove it, JoJo.

    This is a goddamned division rival. This should be a great series; personally, I think it goes the distance even without Simmons playing. Truth is I don't trust the Celtics to play consistently well enough to win it as easily as they should...but I still have them winning in 7. I'll definitely watch every game.

    All that being said...I'm way more interested in the Lakers/Blazers series. Lillard is the best player in the bubble by wide margin and I just feel like he's poised to do something historic.

    Dont sleep on embiid, horford, harris, richardson core. Hopefully embiid can hit the block a bit more now that simmons anti-gravity is gone.

    You realize that Simmons is out right?

    Sixers are placing their hopes on the biggest playoff choker in the NBA in EmChoke

    Celtics have 4 out of 5 best players this series, they should win this easily. Also expect them to sweep raptors.

    Not 3 mins into the game and Mark Jones has imagined a Celtics player named "Mike Theiss" and called Josh Richardson "Jason Richardson."
