Celtics win battle of defenses, oust 76ers to face Heat


Neither has much of a chance against LeBron and Wade.

Jeff Green, who figured to be the first man off the Celtics' bench, failed his physical exam because of an aortic aneurysm. Just like that, the Celtics were without a young, athletic forward who could provide relief to their veterans.

(NECN/AP) – It wasn't pretty, it wasn't high scoring, but the Boston Celtics will certainly take it. The Celtics rode their tenacious defense with just enough offense to beat the eighth-seeded Philadelphia 76ers 85-75 in Saturday night's Game 7

Tickets with “PB“ in the section or row – or “Piggy Back” in the notes – are seats located one behind the other in consecutive rows. You are showing 4 seats but I can't select 3. Why not? We can't sell any quantity that leaves just a single seat left.

I want to be friendly to our schadenfreude seeking Celtics fans. Beating the worst team in the playoffs is no easy accomplishment as we saw. Their efforts should be rewarded with a cookie, and I am happy to oblige them.
