We’ve issued plenty of commentary on this before, and we are going to continue with it now as well. We just don’t think that the 76ers should rightfully be favorites over the Celtics at any point during this series. The boys in green just have the better squad. Sure, that doesn’t mean that Boston is going to win and/or cover every single game in this series, but we still think that it is better than a 60/40 proposition that the Celtics are going to win every game. And if that’s the case, we would be getting rich over the course of 100 plays if we just kept picking Boston. Tonight is no exception. Too much KG. Too much Rondo. Too much Pierce. Not even remotely close to enough out of the Philly starters, which were just badly outplayed when these teams met two nights ago.
