Jaylen Brown says he's a go for Game 2 vs. Sixers

ZERO-ING IN Jayson Tatum reacts to a made 3-pointer during the Celtics’ 117-101 victory against the 76ers last night

They had plenty of time to prepare having eliminated the Miami Heat nearly a week ago.

The Celtics, who had trouble finding consistent offense in their first-round series against an inferior Milwaukee Bucks' defense and recently lost their leading scorer from that matchup, Jaylen Brown, were expected to struggle to produce points against a stingier Sixers team.

Ho-hum, just another injury for the Celtics to overcome. We already knew that, but Monday night was a nice reminder for the rest of the National Basketball Association.

Playing in place of Irving, Rozier picked up where he left off in the first round by scoring 10 points and six assists in the first quarter on Monday night. Instead, they put up a 119 offensive rating while shooting 17-of-36 from 3-point range.

When the teams met in the 1982 Eastern Conference finals, Toney averaged 26.4 points per game in the series. The Golden State Warriors and Houston Rockets both enjoyed more rest than their respective opponents, as the Sixers did, and came away with a victory this past weekend. His favourite part? That aforementioned 1984 fight, with "Dr. J and Larry Bird holding each other's necks", Embiid said.

While some of that can be chalked up to bad bounces or San Antonio's defense, the fact of the matter is the shots didn't go down. Game 2 had better wake New Orleans up, or this series could end up being one of the most disappointing of the entire playoffs.

Simmons, the No. 1 pick in the 2016 draft who sat out all of past year with an injury, was heckled by the Boston crowd with chants of "Not a rookie!"

Despite Philadelphia's rookie playmaker finishing with a decent line of 18 points, seven rebounds and six assists, he wasn't almost as effective as he's usually been.

Every Boston defender had eyes for Simmons in transition, making it their mission to slow him down. I very much doubt Boston will come close to winning the three-point line by 36 points again. Corrects to 76ers missed 15 of their first 20 shots in 6th paragraph. He was simply scary in delivery a career-high 29 points against a team favored to take the Celtics out.

"There's a deep history between the two teams". Whenever Philly started to go on a run in the second half, Rozier was there to stomp out any chance they had at a comeback. Joel Embiid had 31 points and 13 rebounds for the 76ers.

As the defense converged, Shane Larkin spun in a full circle, putting everything he had in his diminutive build to zip a pass to Al Horford all alone on the top of the key. Jayson Tatum had 28 points, and Al Horford chipped in 26. The Celtics took a committee approach, using a combination of Horford's athleticism, Semi Ojeleye's fire-hydrant-like stature, and Marcus Morris' all-around abrasiveness to hold Simmons at bay. But other than all of that, he was pretty average... His red-shirt status doesn't preclude him from the award any more than Blake Griffin's precluded him from the same.
