The 76ers are not trying to get swept up today, and they're having an energy that Philly fans must love. That does not mean that Boston has a weaker opponent. This one is tight, early.
The Boston Celtics have a chance to sweep the Philadelphia 76ers into Game 4 of their second round NBA playoff series on Monday night at the Wells Fargo Center in Philadelphia.
The Celtics took command of the series with an overtime win on Saturday. Almost eight seconds ahead of extra time, Al Horford scored the first goal after a break from Brad Stevens, then staged a midcourt steal and two free throws to seal the victory.  Horford, in his 11th NBA season, makes a playoff career – a high 17.9 points this postseason to go with 8.6 rebounds.
From our Tom Ziller in Philadelphia:
"He's a stabilizer for our group, no question," Stevens said. "When things are going bad, they all just look at Al, including coaches, we all just stare at Al, waiting for him to say something, and then, when he says something, we all feel better and take a deep breath, and maybe we can work overtime and win this thing, it's incredible. "
Boston last played a playoff series in 2011 and drove the New York Knicks out in four games in the first round. The Celtics have never defeated the 76ers.
