  • The Celtics were defeated at home, 115-103, in Game 5.

The Celtics (63-30) and the 76ers (61-30) meet for Game 6 of their Eastern Conference Series. The 76ers got a big road win in Game 5, and now have a chance to win the series. Boston needs to win to stay alive.

Picks

Boston was stunned by the 76ers on Tuesday, losing a game at home that many expected them to win. Just under 4 minutes into the game, they led 10-8. After losing that lead, the Celtics fell behind by double digits, never able to catch up and regain the lead. They now face a road elimination game, needing wins in games 6 and 7 to survive. They’ll need to shoot better from 3-point range, after going 12 for 38 in the loss.

The 76ers raised their chances of winning this series against the Celtics from 38% to 69% following their road win in Game 5. The victory was crucial for them, setting up an opportunity to win the series at home in Game 6 and avoid Game 7 altogether. 2023 MVP Joel Embiid has begun to return to his regular season form, picking up 33 points, 7 rebounds, 4 blocks, and 3 assists in the win. He’ll continue to play a key role.


Picks

At first, I immediately picked the 76ers to win this game. It would make sense, after winning triumphantly on the road in Game 5, that they could easily win Game 6 at home. That being said, home-court advantage starts to fade into the background in elimination games, where each team will give their absolute best regardless of the location. With Boston’s backs to the wall, I see them forcing a Game 7.
