Joel Embiid makes guestures during game 4

Joel Embiid makes guestures during game 4

The Boston Celtics are looking to close out their second-round series and advance to the Eastern Conference Finals Wednesday night when they host Game 5. Joel Embiid answered quickly and the Celtics had a shot-clock violation.

Rozier made a pair of free throws to make it 113-109 - eight straight points for Boston.

The Sixers refused to go away quietly. It's a testament to a program they've been nurturing since he took over as coach five years ago. Maybe this is the series that lands the Sixers in the history books, and launches the franchise into a bright future that starts with a date against LeBron James and the Cleveland Cavaliers.

Yet, as Morris said Monday when he said of Joel Embiid's chatter "I wouldn't say a damn word if I was down 3-1", talk is cheap and it's the play on the court that is going to ensure that the Celtics close out the series, and don't allow the 76ers to become the first team in National Basketball Association history to come back to win a series from 3-0 down. In addition to his scoring outburst, McConnell played terrific defense against Terry Rozier, who had just 11 points on 4-of-11 shooting in a chippy Game 4 that featured four technical fouls.

With a 3-1 series lead, Boston is obviously in the better position heading into Wednesday's game, but when seeing how good of a job Philadelphia did on Monday to extend this series, Brad Stevens knows this is going to be far from a walk in the park.

Marcus Morris Knows he can Defend LeBron James
He joined Utah's Donovan Mitchell, who did it over the first two rounds for a Jazz team ousted by the Houston Rockets on Tuesday . This is the story of the five teams hurt the most from James' dictatorship in the Eastern playoffs. "It's like night and day".

He is six shots off the lead, though he did best his playing competitors, Phil Mickelson and Rickie Fowler . He last played in the Open at St Andrews in 2015, when he missed the cut with rounds of 76 and 75.

While the young players on Boston's rosters have been huge in Boston's success, Brown said the veteran leadership of Horford has been just as important in helping hold things together throughout the season. Atypically, the Celtics attacked the rim more than they launched 3-pointers, and the result was a relatively efficient first-half. Neither team could gain much of an advantage, as the two sides traded baskets back and forth.

"If we're ever going to do anything of any significance, we're going to have to go through the Boston Celtics", Philadelphia head coach Brett Brown said after the game.

After striking up a long-distance friendship with Drew Bledsoe during the Milwaukee series, Rozier finally met the former Patriots quarterback for real. "The guy that should have won got it". Horford made the free throw, and Baynes made two for the original foul to give Boston a 75-63 lead, its biggest of the game to that point. Celtics' Larkin injures shoulder in Game 4 loss. Boston was 6-for-20 in the third, with six turnovers, watching a nine-point lead wither to one. The guard put up 19 points to go with eight boards and five assists, ultimately helping his team get a 103-92 victory.

In a battle that came down to the final possession, the Sixers fell short in the deciding game that featured 21 lead changes and 11 ties.
