We just still aren’t buying what the 76ers are selling, and we still believe that when push comes to shove, that Boston is the better play, even on the road in these games at the Wells Fargo Center. The Celtics looked particularly old down the stretch of Game 2, and the argument could be made that they are lucky to still be anywhere near in this series at this point. Still, the defense has done the job, and that is going to be the key to knocking off the 76ers. Boston still has Rajon Rondo, the triple-double machine, and the talent is there offensively to have so many different players take over. We just don’t see that out of the Sixers. If this game reaches the 170s, the Celtics are going to pull off the upset.
