76ers look to stay alive against Celtics

Joel Embiid says Terry Rozier is too short to punch him in the face

The Boston Celtics visited the Philadelphia 76ers for Game Four of their NBA Eastern Conference Semi Final Playoff series at the Wells Fargo Center in Philadelphia, PA on May 07, 2018.

Game 7 (if necessary): Cleveland at Boston, Sunday, May 27 at 8:30 p.m.

The entire fourth quarter was a nailbiter.

It might have been more ideal for Boston if Smart had made the first free throw and missed the second, potentially creating an offensive rebound or forcing a rushed Sixers' possession.

Marcus Smart missed his first free-throw attempt and appeared to try to miss the second, too - to force the Sixers to bring the ball up the court with the clock running - but the ball went in. He tried to miss the second on objective but made it, but then sealed the win for Boston by picking off Ben Simmons' court-long pass.

The Sixers had taken a 103-102 lead with 3:28 left on a Dario Saric 3-pointer, and when Tatum missed, Simmons converted a drive. If the Sixers win Wednesday, Game 6 would be Friday in Philadelphia. Boston was paced by the young wing tandem of Tatum and Jaylen Brown, who posted 25 and 24 points, respectively.

"The obvious is the obvious", Brown said.

But on Wednesday, the football player was there in person, meeting Rozier before the game and sitting courtside with Celtics owner Wyc Grousbeck. Simmons had 18 points, eight rebounds, six assists, and one block.

Britain's Kyle Edmund beats Novak Djokovic — Madrid Open
But make no mistake, Edmund had earned his spot on the edge of the top 20 with increasingly confident, attacking tennis. However his chief problem, as it is for everyone else, will be Nadal, the Argentine's potential semi-final opponent.

The Philadelphia 76ers are looking to stave off elimination and come one step closer to making history.

The Celtics continued to extend their lead in the third quarter getting up by as many as 12 points.

After Rozier inadvertently referred to Bledsoe as "Drew Bledsoe", the former New England Patriots quarterback, when speaking to the media, Bledsoe repeatedly insisted to reporters that he didn't know Rozier's name. After the C's big man hit two straight buckets, he swiped the ball from Saric which started a 3-on-2 for Boston. "We look forward to the challenge, whoever we may face if we go through Boston or Philly".

Once again, the biggest plays were being made by a familiar source, despite twin 27-point efforts from Embiid and Saric that almost sent this series back to Philadelphia.

The Sixers' youth and inexperience seemed to rear its head at the worst possible times against Boston, who seemingly executed at the highest level when they needed to the most. It's incredible. What's even more incredible, though, is the way he's been shoved down our throats as the best thing going and future of the league. How?

Philadelphia will win Game 4 to avoid the sweep and also cover the spread in the process to stay alive in the series.

"If I saw a lane, I took it".
