What a wild series so far for the Boston Celtics. Going into this series, almost everyone was counting the C’s out. “ They don’t have a star player”, “ Who’ll stop Embiid and Simmons?”. That’s all we heard leading up to the series. After three straight amazing wins by the Celtics, the 76ers are ready to pack their bags for the summer.
First of all, Horford won’t let the Celtics lose this game. He knows that the fewer games he has to play, the better off his body will hold up. He’s 100% the leader of this team, and he’s made the right plays at the right time.
Tatum is the MVP of this series, and guess what? The kid is only 20 years old. He’s shot over 50% from the field in all three games, and that’s just bananas. Add in how great Rozier and Brown are playing, and this team is just too powerful for the 76ers.
Game 4 is tonight at 6 pm, and I wouldn’t be surprised if the C’s closed the series out. I hate to get ahead of myself, but the C’s will play the Cavaliers in the Eastern Conference Finals. This will be the rematch that everyone is looking forward to. However, this time the Celtics are a completely different team.
