Boston Celtics vs Philadelphia 76ers Game 5 Pick
The Celtics are headed back to Boston, but they have big problems. They did not play well in the last game, It was the second time they could have won a game, but let it slip through their hands. Jaylen Brown is clearly not happy and Boston is inconsistent and disorganized. The team is run by the players and the coach is in over his head. This team is full of talent, but not players that are willing to play like a team. The Celtics may have the best team left in the playoffs, but they have to play together as a team if they have any hopes of winning another title.
The Sixers are not perfect, but they have tied the series at two games apiece and their best player has yet to have a monster game. That will change on Tuesday night. Joel Embiid was embarrassed in the last outing to the point where teammate PJ Tucker had to yell at him. Embiid will use that as motivation and will explode in game three. This will collapse the defense and allow for outside shooting for James Harden.
Philadelphia has the advantage because they are playing with nothing to lose. The trends also favor the underdog in this outing. The Sixers are 7-2-1 ATS in the last ten games overall and they will beat the Celtics in a crucial game five.
