PHI VS BOS DREAM11 NBA Basketball Prediction Game 5, 10th May – Fantasy Team News
Boston Celtics vs Philadelphia 76ers
NBA Post Season
Eastern Conference Semi-Finals, Celtics lead the series 3-1
PHI VS BOS DREAM11 MATCH PREVIEW:
The Game 1 of the Eastern Conference was supposed to be Boston Celtics’ toughest assignment of all 7 games of this series. They came into that game just 48 hours after beating Milwaukee Bucks in the 7th game, while Philadelphia 76ers had a five days rest courtesy of their five-game win over Miami Heat in the first round. So Celtics were supposed to struggle with fatigue and tiredness, while visitors were expected to be more vibrant and energetic at TD Garden.
But Celtics’ performance in the first game remains their best in this series so far. The Greens were aggressive, direct and shot at a better rate than they managed in all the other three games. The 17-times NBA Champions shot at an incredible 45 percent in games 1 and 2, while it dropped to 30 percent in the Games 3 and 4. There’s no surprise that Boston won the 3rd game by only 3 points, lost the 4th game 92-103, this giving 76ers a sniff of a chance to make a comeback in this series.
Much of Celtics’ performance depends on how they fare in the shooting department, and in particular, from beyond the arc. If they play as they did in the first two games, then Terry Rozier and his men may close out the series in this game, while a similar performance from 76ers may take the series to the 6th game.

PHI VS BOS DREAM11 FANTASY TEAM:
INDIA FANTASY PREDICTION:
Boston Celtics had a below-average outing in the last game. They shot poorly and were kept out of the corners by a Philadelphia 76ers team which is fighting for its life in this series. A similar performance in this game may fetch the similar result as the last one for Joel Embiid and company.
However, Greens are at home and it would take more efforts from the visitors to keep the hosts at bay in this particular game.
We are backing Boston Celtics to wrap up the series and meet the Cleveland Cavaliers in the Eastern Conference semifinal.
