Al Horford Focused on facing the Philadelphia 76ers

Al Horford Focused on facing the Philadelphia 76ers”

Personally, I'd like to see Brown on Simmons, Rozier on Redick, Tatum on Covington, Horford on Saric, and Baynes on Embiid. And it's not just turnovers we're talking about here.

It's just one of two big decisions facing the Bucks this offseason. "We talked after the game, no stuff".

The Celtics will next take on the Philadelphia 76ers in the Eastern Conference semi-finals on Monday night in Boston after the 76ers eliminated the Miami Heat in five games.

The Celtics do have mastermind coach Brad Stevens, who should be a finalist for the Coach of the Year, though even he will be tested as well. "The main important thing is just slowing my mind down".

"He ain't going anywhere", Antetokounmpo said of Parker's impending restricted free agency, per Gery Woelfel of the Racine Journal Times. "Milwaukee fought hard. They kept giving us shots, our guys stayed with it and eventually we wore them (out)".

After the Cavaliers became the final team in the East to win its first-round series Sunday, Westgate Sports Book in Las Vegas reset its National Basketball Association championship odds. The Celtics could not rid their opponent, the Milwaukee Bucks, until Game 7. He's also a respected voice in the locker room. It's a new experience. In the previous 19 matchups, the Celtics hold the lead with 54 wins and are 12-7 in those matchups. "You've got to come out, hit first".

Following their 112-96 loss in Game 7 of their first round series with the Boston Celtics on Saturday night, there were a number of great perspectives on the inconsistent season the Bucks experienced and the summer that lies ahead for the team, both from a local and national perspective. "Our fans really gave us that energy".

Markelle Fultz, who was "traded" from the Celtics to the Sixers, who accepted Boston's first pick in the draft, did not play against the Celtics in the four games but has since returned.

When he was at Louisville, Rozier was compared to Bledsoe, who had left Kentucky a few years earlier.

Freshness factor - The Sixers will obviously be the much fresher team coming into this Game 1 after close to a full week off. Then it was off to London, where the Celtics, -2, rocked a 114-103 victory, while the total, 212.0, bounced over for the first time. "I don't know who thought of that, but that was nice". The Boston Celtics were clearly the superior team.

The Celtics rank 10th in three pointers attempted per game (30.3) while the 76ers rank 17th in three pointers allowed per game (29.5).

That being said, the Celtics can still get some confidence from knowing they won the season series 3-1, and there was a pretty solid indication of what needs to be done to win.

Philadelphia ranks 16th in fast break points per game (11.4) while Boston ranks 27th (9.4). The Bucks never got within single digits in the fourth.

"Jabari ain't going nowhere", Antetokounmpo said with a smile. They cannot afford to do so against Philly because they could easily be swept out for the playoffs I'd they do not come prepared.

Brown said afterward he was told it was a Grade 1 injury - the least severe kind. He will have an MRI tomorrow.

Vegas Vic, the Nevada-based handicapper for the Daily News, Inquirer and Philly.com, is taking the Sixers in Monday's Game 1. Joel Embiid missed the first two games of the series, but he returned to record 18.7 points and 10.3 rebounds per contest. They are 2-8 in Game 7s.

Horford - the Celtics' only healthy All-Star following injuries to Gordon Hayward and Kyrie Irving - added eight rebounds and three assists. Red Sox manager Alex Cora and a bunch of players also filed into a pair of luxury suites after their game ended. Rozier's 26 points were a career playoff high.
