12BET (Basketball Tip)
As the series moves once again back to Boston, the Celtics are extremely eager for another opportunity to close out the Philadelphia 76ers in Game 5 at the TD Garden and move to Eastern Conference Finals. Everyone knows that no team has ever come back from a 3-0 deficit in the NBA Playoffs despite of the Sixers convincing win in Game 4.
Team Analysis: (Don’t forget to check 12BET for the best Free Betting Tips)
The Celtics have outplayed the 76ers in three of the four games this playoff series. On top of that, the team hasn’t lost a home playoff game yet. During Game 1 and Game 2 in Boston, the Celtics earned back-to-back home court victory. In Game 3, they’ve luckily won 101-98 in overtime victory in Philadelphia before they lost Game 4 against the Sixers due to turnovers.
Philly got their first victory in the series to cut the lead down to 3-1 following their 103-92 triumph at Wells Fargo Center led by Dario Saric’s 25 points. In addition, T.J. McConnell and Ben Simmons each scored 19 points, with Simmons adding 13 rebounds for the 76ers.
We are going to expect that Brad Steven’s team will not waste the opportunity of winning Game 5 with a home court advantage against Philadelphia. If that happens, then Boston will have a playoff rematch against the Cleveland Cavaliers in the Eastern Conference Finals. Meanwhile, 76ers cannot be underestimated as they want their season alive and try to force Game 6. It’s going to be a highly intense basketball game tomorrow!
