The Boston Celtics seek to become the first team in the Disney bubble to win a playoff series as they face first-round opponent the Philadelphia 76ers.
Through three games the Celtics have dominated the short-handed 76ers exposing Philly’s bad habits and look like the much more confident squad at all times.
Without Gordon Hayward, the trio of Jayson Tatum, Jaylen Brown, and Kemba Walker must pick up the slack and did so in Game 3.
Walker had his best game of the series leading the team with 24 points, four assists, and eight rebounds. Brown was equally impressive with 21 points and seven rebounds.
Tatum suffered what can be deemed an off night. The youngster shot 6 of 19 and was in foul trouble all night picking up his third foul before the end of the first quarter. He finished with 15 points and six rebounds.
Javonte Green is out Sunday with a right knee sprain.
Joel Embiid was clearly upset after the loss having put his 76ers on his back to try to will the team to a victory. Those wondering if the young club will mail in Game 4 shouldn’t expect that to be the case.
Embiid said ‘”I don’t want to be swept, I don’t want that in my resume.” The big man ensures he’ll play his butt off and do everything possible to make sure his squad gets the win.
Embiid registered a double-double of 30 points and 13 rebounds with most of the damage coming in the first half which begs the question if the big man still has issues with his conditioning.
Tobias Harris who got paid this past offseason hasn’t delivered in the series although he fought through another tough shooting night to deliver a 15 point, 15 rebound effort.
Josh Richardson and Shake Milton each added 17 points with the latter hitting key baskets down the stretch.
Glenn Robinson III remains out with an oblique muscle strain.

Free Boston Celtics vs. Philadelphia 76ers NBA Prediction:
Brett Brown will surely remind his squad how they beat Boson 3-1 in-season. He’ll need to find some motivation since a sweep would most assuredly result in his firing (and it might be a foregone conclusion regardless).
4* Free NBA Betting Pick: 76ers +8
Philly had Game 3 in hand and then fell apart at the end which speaks to the teams’s trust and chemistry issues. Ultimately, it comes down to whether Embiid’s teammates are as invested as he is in winning and line up beside him.
This game is all about pride – but if they win once — who knows.
