Boston Celtics set NBA East finals duel vs LeBron, Cavs

Overtime delayed by premature confetti as Celtics trump Sixers When Marco Belinelli hit a game-tying shot Philadelphia 76ers staffers thought the team had won and confetti hit the fan causing

In a Philly-friendly twist, the underdog Celtics, up 3-0, were unable to keep the sleeping giant Sixers quiet for a fourth game.

Game 1 of the Eastern Conference Finals will take place on Sunday.

With a 3-1 series lead, Boston is obviously in the better position heading into Wednesday's game, but when seeing how good of a job Philadelphia did on Monday to extend this series, Brad Stevens knows this is going to be far from a walk in the park.

The familiarity between the teams has done what it usually does - breed a bit of contempt.

Boston still has the advantage of potentially closing out the series at home, so Philadelphia needs to be ready to deal with the crowd and play a rugged, physical game. Brown answered with a 3-pointer and 88-85 lead when Philadelphia shot back with five in a row for its first lead of the half. Tatum scored 24 points on 11-of-17 shooting in Game 3, after scoring 21 in Game 2 and 28 in Game 1. Used primarily as Irving's backup before the injury, Rozier was forced into becoming one of the team's top offensive threats, and he embraced it. He complained to the official while holding onto the ball.

"He kinda kept the ball away from me and tried to punch me twice". Beyond that, the Sixers rarely play any meaningful minutes without at least two starters. "I wake up every morning, not anxious about nobody - no man on this earth". "We were out there having fun". Starting out fast and making sure the T.D. Garden is as quiet as bunch of crickets will be a critical part of winning game five. "That's all it is".

Asked to explain his hand gestures to Embiid, Morris said, "Because it's reality".

Celtics fans got creative riding the young Sixers.

In the beginning of the season I think everybody had this eastern finals matchup pegged down but as the season went on, many people began to believe that neither one of these teams would make it. "They had a lot to say in here". He finished with 14 points, six rebounds, six assists and three steals in his 33 minutes off the bench. Without its best players, with the critics giving them nearly no chance, with Vegas odds piled against them, the Eagles rallied around Nick Foles (you might know him better as Saint Nick) and won their first ever Super Bowl over the heavily favored Patriots.

Toronto was swept by Cleveland on Monday to become the 130th consecutive team in National Basketball Association history to fail to overcome a 3-0 deficit.

Game 6 (if necessary): Boston at Cleveland, Friday, May 25 at 8:30 p.m. Denver stayed alive by squeaking out an 83-82 win in Game 4 to avoid the sweep, and then won the next two games.

"Obviously, it is a pretty special and the most unforgettable moment in the game series", McConnell said. "We need to play better". "We just have to focus, lock in and handle business".
