PHI VS BOS DREAM11 NBA Basketball Prediction Game 3, 6th May – Fantasy Team News
Philadelphia 76ers vs Boston Celtics
NBA Post Season
Eastern Conference Semi-Finals, Celtics lead the series 2-0
PHI VS BOS DREAM11 MATCH PREVIEW:
Despite missing Kyrie Irving through a knee injury which has ruled him out of the playoffs, Boston Celtics are playing like a team aiming for their 18th NBA title.
The Greens were pushed right towards the 7th game in the first round by Milwaukee Bucks and showed that Boston have too many chinks in their armor without Irving playing for them. Then they faced Philadelphia 76ers in the semifinals, and many believed that this could be the end of their ambitions of winning at least the conference considering 76ers were the most inform team in NBA.
But just as all the big teams do, Celtics raised their game in the 2nd round and won the first two games against a more potent team.
The 2nd game of this series was one for the history books. Celtics were behind by a massive 22 points in the 2nd quarter, but they scripted an incredible comeback, first cutting down the lead to just five at the halftime and then went on a 28-19 run which proved pivotal for both the teams.
But 76ers’ head coach Brett Brown has come under criticism for his unusual tactics in both the games, especially in the 2nd game when he decided not to take a timeout when Celtics were creating havoc on the court.
But it’s not only his tactics only, some of his stars are underperforming in the last couple of matches. Rookie Point-Guard Ben Simmons could only score 1 point in the last game which is arguably his worst ever performance.
Down 0-2 in the series, 76ers need all their players to at their best and certainly, this is not the time to have the worst phase of your season.
