Boston Celtics vs. Philadelphia 76ers, second game of the semifinal, the surprise that the 76ers received on the road was shocking, the Celtics received them at home hungry for victory, the visitors had no chance against some inspired Celtics without Kyrie Irving. For this second game the fans of the 76ers want to see the team play and win, if they lose today on the road it will be dangerous for them.
Philadelphia 76ers: Today we want to win on the road.
The 76ers had a great regular season, 56 wins and 32 losses, a season to remember, this has been the best season of the last 16 years, since the 2000/01 season had not had such good results. It has also been the best season for Brett Brown (76ers coach) since he took over the 76ers as coach.
Despite the good results in the regular season, the 76ers lost the first game of the semifinal against the Boston Celtics 101-117, the dominance of the Celtics started in the first quarter, 25-22 and from there the 76ers could not win any of the other quarters, it was a disgrace. Joel Embiid scored 31 points, Simmons 18, Reddick 20 and Saric 12 points, but that did not help.
For this second game at home the 76ers must improve the defense, especially if they want to stop the Celtics who took advantage of the weak defense that the 76ers had at home in the first game, but in general the defense of the 76ers is good, they only allow 105 points on average and the Celtics are scoring 102 points on the road.
111.1 points at home are scoring on average the 76ers, 47.3% field goal far superior to visitors, 75.7% free throw, 10.75 three pointers per game, 11.55 offensive rebounds, 28.09 assits, the best quarter for the 76ers is the first with 29.4 points and third with 28.3.
Boston Celtics: The first time it was luck.
People say that the first game was a matter of luck for the Boston Celtics in Philly, but the truth is that the Celtics players played very well, Tatum 28 points +18 points of the last game, Rozier 29 points, Horford 26 and Smart solo 9 points The performance was very good for the Celtics.
At home the Celtics are scoring 105.9 points, but the defense allows 100.5 points to visitors, the games become uncomfortable when visitors score points and win quarters. The faithful goal is above 45.7% with an average of 39.24 points and 11.43 three pointers per game.
This game has several options for the bettors, first this is the doubt if this time the 76ers could score more points, since in the first game they only scored 101 points, while they have an average of 108 on the road. The Celtics are inspired, they have the advantage of home and surely they can score on 105 points, that’s why the total overall or total by teams are the two most lucrative options.
