East – Game 3:

  • Boston Celtics 114 – Philadelphia 76ers 102  (BOS leads series 2-1

Highlights:  In Game 2 of the Eastern Conference Semifinals, the Boston Celtics did what they were supposed to. Having absorbed a tough last-second loss to the Philadelphia 76ers in Game 1, the Celtics bounced back with an assertive blowout win, evening the series at one game apiece. Tonight, they were tasked with taking the offensive; a win on Philly’s home court would put them back in the driver’s seat of the series. Though they occasionally struggled in a physically demanding contest, they accomplished their goal, taking a 2-1 series lead with a 114-102 win. Jayson Tatum led the Celtics with 27 points, though he connected on just 3-of-11 three-point attempts on the evening. Jaylen Brown added 23 points of his own, but struggled with late foul trouble, and Al Horford drilled five threes en route to 17 points. Read more at:  (
