PHI VS BOS DREAM11 NBA Basketball Prediction Game 4, 8th May – Fantasy Team News
Philadelphia 76ers vs Boston Celtics
NBA Post Season
Eastern Conference Semi-Finals, Celtics lead the series 3-0
PHI VS BOS DREAM11 MATCH PREVIEW:
Boston Celtics are aiming for a killing blow in the 4th game against Philadelphia 76ers as a win in today’s game will hand them a berth in the final of the Eastern Conference where Cleveland Cavaliers are their likeliest opponent.
Celtics hold a 3-0 lead following their overtime victory over 76ers in the last game at Wells Fargo Center, and Philadelphia have nothing but to blame themselves for this precarious looking situation.
With only 1.7 remaining in the regulation time, Sixers were trailing 87-89 in the game. Ben Simmons had the possession and threw the ball to Marco Belinelli, who was being guarded by Terry Rozier. But the 32-year-old shooting-guard tricked him and sent the ball into the hoop for a two-pointer, thus forcing an overtime.
Simmons then gave away the ball cheaply in the last seconds of the overtime and Celtics’ forward Al Horford sealed the victory with two free throws.
But teams making comebacks from 3-0 deficits are not unheard of as this improbable task has been achieved in some major sports in the past. Liverpool made a sensational recovery in the final of the Champions League after going down 3-0 in the first half, and eventually won their 5th trophy on penalties.
Even in American Hockey, Philadelphia 76ers scripted a comeback from a 3-0 deficit and won the conference semifinal 4-3. So it can definitely be achieved provided Sixers don’t make silly mistakes.

PHI VS BOS DREAM11 FANTASY TEAM:
INDIA FANTASY PREDICTION:
After losing the first two games on the road in this series, Philadelphia 76ers headed to Well Fargo Center with a hope to use the home advantage to tie the series, and in the 3rd game they had the chance to do just that. But some silly mistakes in the most critical times and some indecisions cost them the match and now they are facing an uphill task of scripting a comeback from a 3-0 deficit in this series.
Teams have achieved this before and there’s no reason why Sixers can’t do that. However, they need to play out of their skin to win this series now.
For this match, we are backing a home win.
