Joel Embiid says Terry Rozier is too short to punch him in the face

Joel Embiid says Terry Rozier is too short to punch him in the face

"LeBron is on just a ridiculous run of play and we know it will be quite a challenge", Celtics coach Brad Stevens said.

Even after the sequence, Redick could still be seen fuming mad at McConnell, who managed to score in that possession, as pointed out by BBallBreakdown. In each game the victor of the third quarter has gone on to win the game. Here's the latest game preview including matchup odds, start time, TV channel, and how to watch the Sixers vs. Celtics game live streaming online.

The Sixers, of course, are trying to pull off a magic trick of their own this week.

Forward Tatum tallied 25 points, guard Jaylen Brown had 24 and Rozier finished with 17 points and six rebounds for the Celtics who are 37-0 when taking a 2-0 lead in a playoff series.

Things were all tied up at, 48-48, with under four minutes to play in the second before the Celtics went on a, 13-4, run to close out the second, with at the time, their largest lead of the night at, 61-52. Game 1 is Sunday in Boston.

"To set the record straight, I wake up every morning not anxious about nobody, no man on this earth", Rozier said.

Looking at the betting trends, the Cavaliers are 6-2 ATS in their last eight road games, 5-2 ATS in their last seven Conference Finals games and 6-1 ATS in their last seven games against a team above.600.

Simmons might win Rookie of the Year, but Jayson Tatum has been the more impressive first-year player in the second round.

"I just can't wait to be back here on Friday after we take care of business in Boston on Wednesday", said one Sixers fan.

The Houston Rockets will host the Golden State Warriors in game one of the Western Conference Finals on Monday. "He keeps getting better".

Now that the Sixers face elimination for the second straight game, head coach Brett Brown tried to take the players' minds off of basketball and have a little fun at dinner Tuesday night.

Embiid scored on a three-point play on his first second half touch in the low post with 6 minutes and 55 seconds left in the third quarter. Philadelphia finally found some offense in game 4, and now appear to again be a threat to Boston. However, Brown would give them more of an offensive presence, which they lacked during Game 4 when they tallied a series-low 92 points.

The Celtics were unable to complete the four game sweep, and now the Sixers have hope.
