The seemingly common notion that this Sixers team was going to coast through the playoffs, especially against a Boston team that went to the Conference Finals last season, might've been a bit premature.
If Horford can take care of business against the 76ers and then somehow end that streak, it'll help the Celtics keep their magical season alive. They got the best of us, I think, a little bit early on and we responded too late. That starts with Ben Simmons and Markelle Fultz.
"'We know what to expect", Simmons said. "We want to go back to Philadelphia [for Game 6]".
North Korea summit will be 'big success': Donald Trump
A statement from the family of Tony Kim lauded Trump for his role, thanking him for "engaging directly with North Korea". In a statement to ABC7, officials with the Oriental Mission Church said they were grateful for Hak-song's safe return.
Boston Celtics guard Jaylen Brown reacts after hitting a 3-pointer against the Philadelphia 76ers during the third quarter of Game 5.
The Houston Rockets will host the Golden State Warriors in game one of the Western Conference Finals on Tuesday. "I'm not all the way there, but I definitely have a lot more work to do". The Sixers lost 114-112.
He is a young man in the real world and a player still thriving in the back end of his prime as an National Basketball Association player. "We have to take it one game at a time", said Wilkerson.

Kanay Patel, 22, born and raised in Cherry Hill, New Jersey, has been a fan all his life. "I am very happy with what I've learned over this period of time". "It's a young team". They made some tough shots throughout the series... Take his versatility off the court, and it's no wonder why the Celtics have been 4.3 points per 100 possessions worse defensively in these playoffs. While the first two went Boston's way against a youthful James, the King has tortured the C's for years now playing in two different cities. "Simmons and Embiid, they're like Magic [Johnson] and Kareem [Abdul-Jabaar]".
"I wouldn't say struggle", he said of his performance. They were plus-48 when he didn't play. This was somewhat true in the first series, but in the second there was no doubt.
In the playoffs for the first time since 2012, the Sixers won 20 out of 21 games, before they ran into the Boston buzzsaw losing three straight in the semifinals.
