The 76ers were at the bottom of the league for years, but now they’re in the Eastern Conference semifinals. Most are picking them to win, as well, against a Boston Celtics team missing its two best players. But the Celtics showed plenty of grit beating the Bucks in seven games in the first round, so don’t count them out just yet.
Despite injuries to multiple key players, the Celtics’ 55-27 regular-season record was the second best in the Eastern Conference. The 76ers, who finished with a 52-30 record, beat the Miami Heat in a convincing five games, becoming the first team in the East to move on to the second round.
Celtics win if:
The Celtics might be injured, but what they lack in talent they make up for in great coaching and execution. Boston is one of the most organized teams in the NBA and it gives the Celtics an advantage that keeps them in almost every game they play in. However, they lack the offense needed to win a shootout with the 76ers. The Celtics will need to make this series ugly with a lot of grind out games.
76ers win if:
The 76ers have the talent and athleticism to run right by the Celtics. They’re a better team on paper and they need to exploit that at every moment they can. They’ve gotten a taste of how playoff basketball works now and know how to attack mismatches. With a giant point guard like Ben Simmons, and a skilled center like Joel Embiid, there should be plenty of mismatches for the 76ers to exploit. Worst case, they need to turn every game into a run and gun shootout. Control the pace and the 76ers win this easily.
