Sixers get history lesson on Celtics rivalry before game one

3 thoughts from Boston's Game 1 victory over Ben Simmons' 76ers

3 thoughts from Boston's Game 1 victory over Ben Simmons' 76ers

During the team's impressive 117-101 Game 1 victory over the Philadelphia 76ers in the second-round of the National Basketball Association playoffs, Rozier lived up to his nickname.

The owners of the best match in his career he played Terry Roser - changer Kyrie Irving scored 29 points and converted 7 of 9 three-pointers.

Despite Philadelphia's rookie playmaker finishing with a decent line of 18 points, seven rebounds and six assists, he wasn't almost as effective as he's usually been.

Three-point shooting was the name of the game as the Celtics drained 17-35 (48.6%) of their shots from distance while the Sixers managed to hit only 5-26 (19.2%) of their long-range bombs.

The trio carried the load offensively for Boston all night and to put their performances into perspective, they combined to score more points (83) than the Celtics' legendary big three of Paul Pierce, Kevin Garnett and Ray Allen ever did in a single game, according to ESPN's Micah Adams.

He won't mimic the torrid shooting pace he had Monday night, but anything close to his performance in Game 1 will help the Boston Celtics have more than a chance at winning this series.

"Time off isn't always the answer to playing well", Brown said with some uncertainty. Embiid, who had 31 points and 13 rebounds, said the crowd noise at TD Garden was "OK". "We're going to have to fix some things". "It didn't bother me, you know".

Up until about an hour before game time, Brown was still trying to figure out a way to play on his strained right hamstring. We didn't want any setbacks with him. But they were great, they supported their team tonight. We need you to be healthy and to feel good'.

Philadelphia had six days off after eliminating the Heat in five games in the first round.

Additionally, Boston was without Jaylen Brown for Game One of the second round.

"Give [the Celtics] credit".

But maybe equally as important, they found success in attempting to slow down Ben Simmons.

These are supremely talented young players that have grown tremendously this season, and have been waiting for this kind of opportunity to showcase their abilities. Since the start of the 2013 playoffs (including this year's three Game 1s), the team that entered with more rest between series is 10-8.

Boston was simply too smart and too good for Simmons and the Sixers.
