However, the 76ers offense can make big things happen.

With NBA teams down 3-0 having lost all 129 series, the Sixers may need more than spirit to pull off this stunner.

"I represent the underdog season", Mill told The Associated Press on Tuesday.

"He just asked me how did I feel about it", Covington said of his conversation with Brown. Boston holds a 3-1 edge in the matchup.

The Boston Celtics (3-1) will try to advance to the Eastern Conference Finals when they go head-to-head with the Philadelphia 76ers (1-3) at TD Garden in game five of the Eastern Conference Semifinals.

Harnessing that energy will be paramount in Boston for Game 5 on Wednesday.

Celtics' Al Horford, $11,600: Horford is putting up big fantasy numbers at home and he had 42.5 fantasy points in Game 7 against the Bucks at home.


"The obvious is the obvious", Brown said.

The Sixers took the lead briefly, stretching it to four on a layup by Saric. The series now stand at Boston leading 3-1. It also goes without saying that the 76ers must limit the Celtics to scoring no more than 95 points. A team gets the ball under the basket after their opponent scores every other time with the exception of the end of the game.

"We have to protect our home", Horford said. "We're going to have to find places in this experience, and learn from it, and that's a great example of one of them". What entitles them to the reward of half the court just because they're losing? "We look forward to the challenge, whoever we may face if we go through Boston or Philly".

Down late in the fourth quarter, Boston used a 6-0 run to get back in front as they sealed a 4-1 series victory on Wednesday. If they can contain Embiid, Simmons and Reddick, they will be in the Eastern Conference finals. The 76ers are less than 4/1 underdogs to come back and win the series, even though it's something no team in league history has accomplished. He's with Boston now, but he's out for the playoffs following knee surgery. Kyrie Irving played for Cleveland then (and averaged 25.8 points and shot.622 from the field in the series).

KEEP AN EYE ON McConnell. Brett Brown planned to move Covington to the second unit and insert McConnell in the starting lineup. It will force the Celtics to account for him more, which could open the floor for his teammates.

Brad Stevens has never put much stock in coach of the year awards. If he's out Wednesday night, Boston would be down to an eight-man rotation.

On the night the Sixers saved their season, the microphone was reserved for T.J. He also is seeing more minutes as the series has progressed. The ability to rest is key for the Celtics.
