I'll learn from my mistakes: Ben Simmons

Celtics survive confetti conundrum to win Game 3 vs. Sixers

Celtics survive confetti conundrum to win Game 3 vs. Sixers

It was "just a championship play", Rozier said.

"You grow up in New England, and you are just so proud of the Celtics, and you make the trip to Boston when you are 7 and 6 and 11 years old, and I did it every year", the Maine native would say later.

Brown has received many appraisals from his team in the form of McConnell and others for generating a soothing ambiance before Game 5 by having the mentalist amongst them. "Take a day off and take a deep breath".

According to Elias Sports Bureau, the Celtics are the first team in National Basketball Association history to reach the conference finals in back-to-back seasons, while returning only four players from one year to the next (Smart, Jaylen Brown, Al Horford and Terry Rozier).

The head coach wasn't wrong about James being on a "ridiculous run" in these playoffs. That are advancing to the Eastern Conference finals in consecutive seasons for the first time since doing so five straight times from 1984 to 1988.

To the surprise of no one in a Celtics uniform, it was Smart.

Now the Celtics get another shot at James and the Cavaliers, who beat them 4-1 in last year's Eastern finals. Rozier knocked the ball out of his hands, off his leg and out of bounds with 10.8 seconds left. Leading all players with a 27 point double-double, perfectly paralleling his frontcourt mate Dario Saric, Embiid's ability to turn a game around quickly came into play and helped to confirm his declaration that he's the best iso scorer in the league. They won by penetrating and kicking to 3-point shooters, with Brown demanding they not hold onto the ball for more than half a second. But it was not, as Brown said early in the series, who they are. Embiid had 15 points and 13 rebounds, while Morris scored 17 points.

Coaches vote Casey NBA's best • The Toronto Raptors' Dwane Casey was the NBA's best coach this season, according to his fellow NBA coaches.

"He tries to miss a free throw, makes it, gets back, makes the steal, puts his body on the line", said Jaylen Brown.

In another sign of disrespect, the NBA's Coach of the Year award was announced Wednesday. Embiid is 0-8 on game-tying or go-ahead shots in the final minute this season, according to ESPN. There were glimpses of Philadelphia's offense kicking into gear, like when JJ Redick sank an off-balance 3-pointer late in the quarter and when Embiid and Marco Belinelli made back-to-back 3-pointers.

Celtics: G Shane Larkin left with a left shoulder injury in the first quarter. But instead of playing for the intentional foul, Brad Stevens wanted to kill the clock.

Here are five quick takes from last night's game.

Ben Simmons will most assuredly win NBA's Rookie of the Year, but his game was subpar for most of this series, as the Celtics overplayed his inability to shoot mid-range jumpers by putting bigger players on him.
