Twitter reacts to Celtics' thrilling Game 5 win over Philly

With less than 30 seconds left in overtime, Joel Embiid missed a jumper and Simmons rebounded the ball with 18 seconds left on the clock.

Smart was fouled on the ensuing inbound, and missed his first freebie. Ben Simmons and Joel Embiid both have a chance to be superstars, and they showed glimpses of that in their 4-1 first-round series victory over the Miami Heat.

"That's a Marcus Smart sequence".

With a 3-1 series lead, Boston is obviously in the better position heading into Wednesday's game, but when seeing how good of a job Philadelphia did on Monday to extend this series, Brad Stevens knows this is going to be far from a walk in the park. "Because at the end of the day that's what we need", Brown said. Celtics' Larkin injures shoulder in Game 4 loss.

Meanwhile, the Boston Celtics are looking to close things out and after having won the first two games on their home court, they're back to try to get another win.

The Celtics have been playing without their two best players in Kyrie Irving and Gordon Hayward. Tatum missed just one of his seven shots and had 14 points at the break.

On the 76ers ensuing possession, JJ Redick would knock down a long three to cut Boston's lead to one, 113-112, with three seconds to play.

He could have made things more hard for the 76ers by missing the second one on goal, and forcing them to go the length of the court with the clock running. In addendum to his scoring machine mode, McConnell played sensational defense against Terry Rozier, who posted just 11 points on 4-of-11 shooting in the Game 4.

Hawaii Kilauea Volcano Eruption: More Big Island Residents Told Prepared For Evacuation
As a precaution, plant workers this week removed 50,000 gallons of pentane stored at the site. The fresh warning came after Donald Trump declared a major disaster on Hawaii's Big Island.

Philadelphia led by four early in the fourth quarter after Dario Saric made a nice move under the basket following a Rozier turnover.

After striking up a long-distance friendship with Drew Bledsoe during the Milwaukee series, Rozier finally met the former Patriots quarterback for real.

Boston was coming off a defeat in game four, but managed to impose their will on the 76ers down the stretch in Wednesday's thriller, improving to 7-0 on their home court in these playoffs. A red-hot team seemingly ran into a wall, losing three straight to a group missing its two best players.

But Simmons's emergence put McConnell on the bench, and without complaint. Saric beat Smart on a nice up-and-over to push Philadelphia's lead to 109-105. With the crowd noise, the Celtics will fine new energy. He later found Tatum for a dunk and finished with 15 points, eight rebounds, and five steals.

With such young teams, the Celtics and 76ers are going to have plenty more battles in the future.

He knows the Celtics can cover the spread if they sweep the defensive boards.

Any list of anything this time of year basically has to start with LeBron James, still generally considered the best player on the planet even at 33 years old and in his 15th National Basketball Association season.
