Brad Stevens’ team won 110-106 and closed the first-round series with a resounding 4-0.
Boston Celtics had no problem to prevail over Philadelphia 76ers in the first round series of the Eastern Conference of the NBA. This Sunday he won 110-106 to close the series 4-0 and has plenty of time to prepare for the semifinals.
The team led by Brad Stevens once again demonstrated its superiority in the Florida bubble and with the figures of Kemba Walker and Jayson Tatum it was too much for those of Brett Brown, who felt the absence of Ben Simmons due to injury throughout the series.
The game this Sunday was even. The Celtics made an important difference with a 32-19 in the third quarter and Philadelphia’s comeback in the last period (29-21) was not enough to force a new game.
Walker was the leading scorer of the game with 32 points, in addition to contributing four rebounds and the same number of assists. Tatum accompanied him with 28 points, 15 rebounds and 4 assists.
Boston is already thinking about the semifinals of the Eastern Conference, where it waits for the winner of the series between the Brooklyn Nets and the Toronto Raptors.
