Celtics Vs. Cavs Schedule: Dates, Start Times For Eastern Conference Finals

Celtics survive confetti conundrum to win Game 3 vs. Sixers

The 76ers' best season since 2000-01 is over. Next is Al Horford (17.2 ppg), who will face the Cavs for the fourth consecutive year.Horford's Hawks were swept by Cleveland in 2015 and 2016, and his Celtics of course went down 4-1 last season.The Cavs have followed the same playoff path as last season to date, beating in in the first round and the Raptors in the second.

That much was made clear by Boston guard Jaylen Brown after the Celtics' 101-98 overtime win in Game 3 on Saturday at Wells Fargo Center.

On this night, the Sixers couldn't overcome their Achilles' heels - turnovers and missed opportunities.

For the second straight season, the Boston Celtics and Cleveland Cavaliers will square off in the Eastern Conference finals. The Celtics, up by two, took possession with 10.8 seconds left.

"I've seen the way these guys prepare", Horford said. The Celtics were awarded the ball.

"This was Game 7 and we treated it as such", Brown said after the win. But at this moment, we don't have to think about them just yet.

Despite being surrounded by a group of 20-somethings, the 32-year-old "Playoff Al" has helped them all play well beyond their years. "But you can't really do anything about it". That's when the Sixers put Marcus Smart on the foul line.

From the beginning, this has been no ordinary one-sided affair in terms of the first three games. 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 reserve guard threw the ball in the air as time expired. And then we're gonna get into practice tomorrow, talk about it.

"I'm ready to go now", Morris said on Monday. We didn't play our best. Not only could they have won two of those games, they should have won two of those games. "This is a process to get to the playoffs, we did it".

"But we definitely have more to show". Overall, he also feeds off the energy, and somebody to frustrate him as well as get under his skin, said, Simmons. Embiid pulled down 12 rebounds.

Embiid scored 27 points in Game 5, going 9-for-18 from the floor with 12 rebounds, four assists, and four blocks in 39 minutes. He was afraid to shoot in Game 2-he took just four field goals and scored one point-and made key mental errors that cost Philly Game 3. On this night, however, he didn't have to wear the lens that attached to the mask.

During the regular season, the Celtics (37.7%, 2nd in NBA) and Sixers (36.9%, 10th) were separated by less than a percentage point in 3-point accuracy.

Nobody stood out for Boston in Game 4, though Jayson Tatum continues to impress with his scoring ability. Brown started at shooting guard after coming off the bench in the previous three games because of a strained right hamstring.

On the offensive end, the Sixers have found themselves with a completely ineffective Ben Simmons. Saric and T.J McConnell had five points apiece. The Sixers are trying to be the first.

Smart responded with five straight points to give the Celtics a one-point advantage. He led the Celtics with 25. Atypically, the Celtics attacked the rim more than they launched 3-pointers, and the result was a relatively efficient first-half.
