76ers dump Celtics in Game 4, avoid sweep

Joel Embiid managed to bait Terry Rozier during the 76ers’ win over the Celtics and continued to trash him in the post-game media conference. More Joel Embiid managed to bait Terry Rozier during the 76ers’ win over the Celtics and continued to trash him in the post-game media conference. More

A Simmons basket put the 76ers up 105-102 when Smart got inside for a foul, one free throw and a one-point game with 2:13 on the clock.

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.

And, the steady hand of Al Horford, scoring 15 and grabbing eight rebounds.

Smart was asked about guarding LeBron James in the Eastern Conference Finals, as the Celtics take on the Cleveland Cavaliers.

Boston reserve Shane Larkin left the game with a left shoulder injury after colliding with Embiid in the first quarter.

Along with questions surrounding his defence in the final quarter, Simmons' final pass and failure to score in the final five minutes has again spurred arguments that fellow rookie Jayson Tatum was the superior first-year star in this series. "You can't go against your team's character and change strategy in the playoffs", Kerr said. "Because none of the good ones are reachable".

Boston held a plus-3 advantage in points on turnovers through the first three games of the series.

That couldn't be said about Cleveland in the first round, as the supporting cast failed to challenge the Pacers over seven games. They got one. We did what we were supposed to do.

The Avengers failed in their quest to stop Thanos, and the deck certainly will be stacked against the Celtics in the Eastern Conference finals. "Next year, that's our goal".

Five straight Smart points gave Boston a 47-46 lead with 4:09 left in the half and ignited a 19-6 run into the break.

76ers centre Joel Embiid had 27 points and 12 rebounds. The young point guard is making 22.8 points per game on 50.5 percent shooting from the floor in six playoff home contests.

In Game 4, the Philadelphia 76ers found new life thanks to T.J. McConnell getting the start.

"They were an outstanding offensive rebounding team coming into the series", Stevens said. "He's made for these moments".

Right now, that's all Casey can say for certain after meeting with Toronto president Masai Ujiri Wednesday morning, with little else clear about the coach's outlook with the organization. During their final 34 games, they averaged 104.5 possessions per 48 minutes - a faster pace of play than any other team during that span.

"Obviously, after 3-0, we [found] a way how to beat them", Saric said. "We want to go back to Philadelphia [for Game 6]". Ujiri talked about his uncertainty regarding Casey's future the same day Casey was named coach of the year by the National Basketball Coaches Association.

Ujiri's wait-and-see approach didn't appear to bother Casey, who said he was aware of the questions about his job but didn't need Ujiri to provide a public backing. "I thought they were great tonight".

Simmons acknowledged the crowd got the better of him this series in his post-match press conference, but his boldest declaration shows this heavy series loss has not broken him.
