The 76ers dropped confetti, but the Celtics took a 3-0 lead in their second-round series.
Celtics forward Jaylen Brown, via NBC Sports Boston:
I’ve seen crazier things. It happens. This win, this win was the confetti for us. We’ll take it like that.
We shouldn’t get caught up. We’ve got to finish the drill. I’m not one – I was never taught to play with our food. When it comes down to it, we’ve got to finish it. It’s four. It’s first to four. We have to take care of business.
Brown is not only playing hurt, he’s giving great quotes hurt.
No NBA team has ever blown a 3-0 series lead. Philadelphia is favored in Game 4 at home tonight. The 76ers have played Boston close twice, and the teams still seem somewhat evenly matched. But it’s extremely tough to see Philadelphia winning four straight, including two in Boston – especially if the Celtics don’t let up.
