If they can complete it this would be one of the least expected sweeps in recent memory. Boston, with all of its injuries was kind of left for dead heading into the series. Now they are just one game away.
Philadelphia played a tight game at home but lost in overtime. I suppose no matter what happens in terms of the series they count this season as a win in terms of advancing the Process.
Needless to say Boston is in great position to take the series. Up 3-0, even with the injuries, it would be a surprise if they do not advance.
The Celtics did not do anything special in game three, they just got the win. Jayson Tatum showed that he has a very bright future ahead of him but we all pretty much knew that anyway.
He and Jaylen Brown, who is rounding back into shape, are quite the duo in the short term and their long term outlook is really good. Brown has become a factor after missing the first game.
It has been clear throughout the whole series that the Celtics have a huge edge in coach Brad Stevens. The talent level of Boston is good but there was every reason to expect some stumbles
It would be natural for the Celtics to have a bit of a letdown up 3-0 but I am confident Stevens will push them through. It doesn’t mean a win, just no complacency.
It wasn’t a blow out but when you are down 2-0 in a series and you are at home you need a win, Philly didn’t get theirs and now it appears the season is on the cusp of being over. It was still a very good run if that does wind up being the case. This is a chance to show something though.
Ben Simmons was a no show in G2 but better in G3. 16/8/8 is a nice statline but with no free throw attempts it seems like he was more directing the action instead of forcing it. He really needs to work on his outside shot to become an elite player.
Joel Embiid is not perfect but his game looks like it sometimes. He dominated with 22 points and 19 rebounds before fouling out. He needed 26 shots to get those points but that is the way the numbers are going to look sometimes in the modern game. Not all of his shots are bunnies. He is definitely not the problem though.

Free Boston Celtics vs. Philadelphia 76ers NBA Prediction:
A sweep still seems like an unlikely close to this series. For the fourth game in a row the 76ers are favoured. I can see why but what do we do about it.
I think the best bet is Philly on the ML but assuming Boston might not scratch and claw in their situation I think we can back the number.
4* Free NBA Betting Pick: Philadelphia -6.5
Lets watch Philly play a few good quarters in a row and win one game the way we thought they would.
