I can't imagine how the Celtics won't win this one. The Hawks were a more talented team than Philly imo and the Celtics didn't have too much trouble. The Sixers like Pforty said, still had a lot of trouble putting away a Bulls team without Noah and Derrick Rose and I don't see how they can fare much better w/o home court advantage against the Celtics despite both teams look somewhat evenly matched on paper. The Celtics have that experience and extra mental toughness that'll give them the edge I think. It'll go to 6 games and no more for the Celtics.
Should I remind you that Sixers disASTER in G.5 ? Or how they barely BARELY made it over Chicago in G.6 who were without their MVP floor general AND center, the two most important positions on the floor esp. come playoff time (AT HOME) ?
Boston will eat them up, with a few bumps on the road perhaps but...c'mon, Sixers don't have the caliber for BOSTON. Boston just took care of the top seeded Atlanta Hawks.
Rondo gonna have his way easy, KG and Pierce too. And Iggy, the closest thing to a go-to-guy, is the opposite of the Boston force: inconsistent.
And he'll have at least 2-3 bad games, as in all series.
