Disastrous 2nd quarter puts Sixers down 2-0 in series with Celtics

That's not a luxury they have this postseason, but that doesn't seem to matter.

Nothing these Celtics do should really surprise us anymore.

After Thursday's 108-103 loss to the Boston Celtics that put the 76ers down 2-0 in their best-of-seven Eastern Conference semifinal, Sixers coach Brett Brown was defiant when discussing his strategy.

Philadelphia's Game 1 loss could have been partially attributed to rust as they had been off for almost a week after dispatching the Heat in five games while Boston went right to the wire to knock out the Bucks. Redick had 15 points on 6-of-9 shooting from the field and 3-for-4 from 3-point range in the first half.

3 takeaways from Game 7 vs. Celtics (read here): Lastly, Matthew Hallett over at Hoops Habit highlighted his three biggest takeaways from the Bucks' Game 7 loss to the Celtics from Saturday night. Yes, it's still early in the series, and Philadelphia is the more talented team on paper.

Fultz looked at ease for the first time in months when at 19 he became the youngest National Basketball Association player to record a triple-double, registering 13 points, 10 assists and 10 rebounds in a win over Milwaukee.

From the time Brown suffered the injury in the second quarter of the Game 7 win over Milwaukee, Stevens had consistently said Brown was doubtful for Game 2 although Brown told NBC Sports Boston after Game 1 that he would, in fact, be back for Game 2. Everyone on the floor contributed.

The Celtics were paced by Jayson Tatum (21 points) and Terry Rozier (19 points). He knocked down a pair of threes in the final 1:42 of the half that almost blew the roof off the TD Garden. He added three assists during the run, accounting for 16 of Boston's points during the stretch.

CELTICS STAY HOTBoston built off its scorching finish to the first half by coming out just as hot in the third quarter. With Philadelphia's lead down to just five, the Celtics were alive and so were their fans.

I have said, every time either pre or post game and when I see you at practice, I have said this before, (the Celtics) are elite guarding their own men.

"I wanted to play last game, but you don't want to risk something where you'll be out for the whole series". The energy was insane.

"I think it was mainly what I did to myself", Simmons said, per ESPN'S Ian Begley.

Throughout the opening 4:30, the C's and Sixers exchanged baskets, but it was Phillys, who would go on the next run to take a 93-88 lead with 5:48 remaining in the game.

And all they do is keep winning.

Trailing by as many as 22 points in the second quarter, Boston cut the deficit to 56-51 at halftime. It set up a thrilling back-and-fourth final frame that saw four lead changes. But Al Horford was able to drive past Embiid for a layup with 8.3 seconds left. He's still more than capable of making an impact on this series, which he'll need to do as the series shifts to a must-win Game 3. But the standard best-of-seven recommendation applies: The road team is best to win at least one of the first two and flip the home-court advantage. Throughout their lengthy history the Celtics have never lost a series when they've gone up 2-0.
