McCaffery: At the end, the Sixers were unable to go the distance

Former Arizona Wildcat TJ McConnell erupts for a career-high in first postseason start

The Celtics sealed a 4-1 playoff series win over the Philadelphia 76ers thanks to a thrilling 114-112 victory in Wednesday's game five. As well as Sixers inserted T.J. even McConnell into their starting line-up in hopes of addressing several shortcomings and related aspects, surprisingly it is also worked. "I feel like those type of plays boost your energy, and it just takes the game to another level, so I like getting into that type of stuff".

Philly had multiple four-point leads in the fourth, but could never pull away and the C's just kept clawing their way back, going on a 10-0 run at one point.

The Australian was circumspect when asked about his season ending, and reflected on a hugely successful rookie year. The rest of Boston's lineup chipped in as well, with four others cracking double-digits. The Sixers were up four with 1:37 remaining before the Celtics made another push. Game 5 is Wednesday night in Boston. McConnell had started 68 games combined over the last two seasons and served as an example of the type of player The Process was built on. "(It) obviously led to points in the paint, fouls, etc".

Celtics coach Brad Stevens, referring to the team's success without injures stars Kyrie Irving and Gordon Hayward, "Things haven't always gone our way, but they're talented".

76ers' Marco Belinelli, $3,700: Belinelli has put up at least 14 fantasy points in each game of this series, which isn't great.

Despite all of the 130 teams that have tried and failed to win an National Basketball Association series after falling behind 3-0, there are reasons to believe the 76ers still have some hope.

The Celtics, trailing for the previous three minutes, took the lead back when Marcus Smart hit Tatum with a pass for a 111-109 lead with 22.5 seconds left. Interestingly, this is the same magician who has been with the Sixers through a road trip last season. The momentum was on our side, but they made big plays. They got one. We did what we were supposed to do.

Simmons' driving layup with 1:45 to play in the first half brought the 76ers within 53-52 heading into the final minute.

The heated series added another dimension during the second quarter of the Sixers' 103-92 win when Rozier and Embiid came face to face during a dead ball.

Brett Brown considered that "leaving points on the table", and they have an extra sting given the two-point game differential.
