they've been doing it all second round

it's honestly a little annoying - like, you know nobody cares about the poll results and it means we lose the pinned daily games thread as a quick "what time are the games today?" check lol

It's hilarious how little faith either fanbase has in their team compared to the Lakers/Warriors series

Well both of you won titles recently

Hope is a dangerous thing

[–]76ersGenjinaro 26 points27 points  (4 children)

Yeah, hope in Philly is flammable. I had to tone my hype down after last game. I feel better about us when we are being shit talked and doubted.

I need to lose this money tonight.

[–]76ersTheFaytalist 6 points7 points  (3 children)

I didn't accept we won game 5 until the final 20 seconds. If you're a Philly fan, you know no lead is safe, and unless you're up 20 points with 60 seconds left, I just don't trust them. That 3rd string Celtics lineup at the end of game 5 had Pritchard drain 3 3's in a row, then two Philly turnovers in a row and suddenly our 16 point lead all game dropped to 10 with like a minute 20 left. Dangerous and sad.

[–]76ersGenjinaro 3 points4 points  (2 children)

Shake & Pritchard were shaving weeks off my life.

[–]RIChowderIsBest 1 point2 points  (1 child)

Does shake know how to play basketball? Based on that sample the other night I’m not really sure that he does.

[–]76ersGenjinaro 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Only early into the regular season, can you trust him. Outside of that, no. We really don't need him touching the ball. Come playoffs, he can wait outside.

I get that feeling of dread when Doc calls him off the bench.

[–]MagicProximity_Intel 3 points4 points  (0 children)

[–]Celticsshawhtk 32 points33 points  (8 children)

One team is coached by Doc Rivers and the other team has been underwhelming the entire playoffs. There’s no reason to have faith.

A stoppable force vs a movable object.

[–]EconomyInside7725 1 point2 points  (1 child)

It's not like Mazzulla is Pop or Phil Jackson. Honestly he's probably the worst coach left in the playoffs.

Having hope isn’t part of my Philly fan DNA. Keep expectations low and I’ll never be disappointed

[–]76ersnrs5813 5 points6 points  (0 children)

It's why we're so angry. Low expectations being met evokes anger instead of disappointment haha.

[–]Rapph 13 points14 points  (2 children)

That's the NE fan life. You can't hurt the fans because they secretly hate their own team and have talked more shit on them than an opposing fan base could even begin to think of.

[–]76ersTheFaytalist 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Because weird and/or incompetent shit happens in Philly sports. How many other teams have had two generational, likely future HOFer's forget how to play or lose interest in playing basketball? Then we trade Mikal Bridges for a guy that immediately develops a deadly allergy to sesame seeds, followed by the GM's wife creating burner accounts so she can shit talk the franchise player, all the while Mikal will be an all-star next year and Zhaire is out of the NBA. Then we get the most clutch player since Jordan and let him walk for Horford, who proceeds to play so poorly for us that he is almost out of the rotation, goes back to Boston and is instantly elite again.

But the scariest thing about being a Philly fan is Philly teams seem to, without warning, at any given time, just decide they are tired of putting out effort and LET themselves get beat. That's what really scares us.

When this squad is firing on all cylinders, they could legit take any lineup, past or present, to 7 games and win. Problem is it's 50/50 if you get that team every game or not, so you're playing Russian Roulette with your feelings. It's better for your mental state in Philly to just assume there's a bullet in the chamber.

So here's my realistic "Philly" prediction for Game 6:

Sixers up 2. 2 seconds left in the 4th. Both teams in the penalty. Tatum free throws. Misses the first one. Intentionally bricks the second one hard for the offensive rebound. PJ goes for the rebound but it hits him in the head and it goes in. Tie game. 0.3 seconds on the clock. Doc loses it and mouths off to the ref. Gets called for the technical. Tatum shoots a free throw and makes it. Celtics up by one. PJ inbounds the ball to Embiid who is at half court, but he slips on some condensation that they never fully cleaned up from the Sixers Kings game in 2016. It causes him to perform a backflip soccer kick to the ball and it hits the front of the rim. Wells Fargo employee gets overly excited and releases 4.6 million pounds of confetti, but the ball bounces over the backboard and gets wedged in the hardware behind it. Game ends and Giannis comes out of nowhere with a ladder to get the ball down.

If that happened I would just shake my head and say; "That's about right."

[–]Dutchmaster617 -1 points0 points  (1 child)

They are playing the Reddit game of trying to avoid downvotes and post historians.

[–][deleted] 1 point2 points  (0 children)

No I just generally have zero faith in any Philly team ever doing anything that will make me happy

[–]76ersKmactothemac 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Yeah I feel like most of each fanbase voted for the other team to win lol

[–]Wizardsjohnsonthicke 51 points52 points  (9 children)

My gut tells me the Celtics come out and play well tonight. But the Sixers are a totally different team when Harden plays like it’s 2018.

I think it’s gonna come down to Harden- if he plays well and stays aggressive I think the Sixers win. If he’s the Harden from games 2 and 3 this thing is gonna go 7 games.

[–]76ersNilsofWindhelm 7 points8 points  (2 children)

I agree that harden will probably be the difference maker. But embiid hasn’t had a signature offensive performance yet. I can see him going for 40+.

I can also seen is getting blown out though

[–]CelticsDayMan-Ahah-ah 7 points8 points  (1 child)

embiid is also still not fully healthy so there’s a chance he continues with how he’s been playing.

he has looked exhausted in the 4th quarter of every game this series; that 34 point game would’ve probably been a 40 if he was 100%

[–][deleted] 2 points3 points  (0 children)

I did think he had a noticeable pickup from the 4th of Game 4 to Game 5 - the only time he really looked gassed in 5 was that 5 minute stretch where the Celtics kept making threes, which was a big improvement from his exhaustion for all of the 4th in Game 4.

[–]MostBotsAreBad 3 points4 points  (5 children)

Embiid got the MVP, but Harden has won either 2 or 3 games for the Sixers, and I don't think there's any chance Embiid could win this game tonight if Harden didn't play.

I'm just saying.

[–]76ersmrpoof 96 points97 points  (21 children)

The more confident everyone is getting in the sixers, the more worried I get we're going to blow it again.

[–][deleted] 40 points41 points  (13 children)

I don’t think you quite understand how discombobulated the C’s are right now then lol

[–]Ranjith_Unchained 29 points30 points  (7 children)

The other team has Doc Rivers although he's been quite good so far in this series

[–][deleted] 29 points30 points  (6 children)

And the C’s have Joe, a rookie coach with basically no assistant coaches. As much as Doc is susceptible to chokes, the Sixers have such a massive upper hand in that area.

[–]76ersOtternomaly 7 points8 points  (0 children)

Technically Mazulla is susceptible to chokes too, but only in Jiu Jitsu class

[–]76ersVeryScaryTerry 4 points5 points  (1 child)

Realistically, I think the sixers will win the series. But we've been scarred from countless blown leads - including when we almost blew the 3-0 lead a year or 2 ago.

[–]CelticsDayMan-Ahah-ah 1 point2 points  (0 children)

i mean, all the celtics have to do is get a win tonight then anything could happen

[–]CelticsTheSleeperWakes 1 point2 points  (2 children)

The main difference is that, given how new Joe is to coaching, and however small the chance may be, there’s always the possibility that something will click into place for him/the team. At this point, Doc is who he is. I don’t think he’s as bad a coach as some seem to but if you do then there’s an explanation for why you think Joe could outcoach him in 6 and 7

[–][deleted] 0 points1 point  (1 child)

I don’t think it’s that easy to just have things “click” into place, learning how to coach in the NBA takes years and years. Udoka had NBA playing experience and Will Hardy and Stoudamire to help him last season.

[–]CelticsTheSleeperWakes 1 point2 points  (0 children)

It’s certainly not easy. Look at Spo’s early career and where he is now. People clowned him at first.

But it can happen.

[–]76ersFour_Verts 8 points9 points  (0 children)

We thought the series was over after game 3. I will never count out the Celtics

[–]76ersGuitaristb72 8 points9 points  (3 children)

Even discombobulated, theres a ton of talent there.

[–][deleted] 9 points10 points  (2 children)

Typically in the playoffs the team with the better player wins, Embiid is far far better than Tatum or Brown and the fact of the matter is that the Sixers have been playing great post all star break and the Celts have declined.

[–]76ersGuitaristb72 2 points3 points  (1 child)

Thats true. But weve seen what happens when Embiid is decent and Harden is way off. All the Philly starters need to contribute to get the W. I think Brown Tatum and Smart come out swinging.

[–]76ersPhightins4044 5 points6 points  (0 children)

Alright, yall can get a room now

[–]Knicksorphicwitch 7 points8 points  (0 children)

don't worry, i still don't believe in you 🫶

[–]CelticsMichaelEugeneLowrey 5 points6 points  (0 children)

Nah man, as much as I’m on that hopium… shits over. Yall winning tonight. Fucking fade me.

[–]edgardens 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Boston is favored for a reason. We're seeing all these series even up. When a good team like Boston is in a must win situation, they can break through

[–]CelticsElOsito1003 -2 points-1 points  (3 children)

After the Celtics said they didn't want to put forth the effort because Embiid was out, I got pissed at them. Yeah I want them to win it all but no excuse for choosing to play with less effort. Pathetic excuse. If Sixers win, I'm a Nuggets fan for this year's playoffs

Edit: changed Sixers to Nuggets because I like them better tbf

[–]used09jetta 4 points5 points  (1 child)

If Sixers win, I’m a Sixers fan

Change your flair this is an embarrassment

[–]CelticsElOsito1003 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Let's prove me wrong the next couple games then. The on and off defensive effort is pathetic, that's the embarrassment. The Celtics are sooooo much better of a team than that. They move on and play like this, they aren't beating any of the four teams in the west

[–]Celticsrveets1416 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Smh gtfoh

[–]76ersalexaustinv 15 points16 points  (2 children)

I believe that the Sixers win if Maxey shows up again. When he is on, it changes everything for Philly

[–]76ersMachupino 11 points12 points  (1 child)

It rides on how Celtics adjust to Maxey bringing up the ball. Rare W for Doc, but his move to handle Celtics early Harden pressure was the difference in game 5.

[–]76ersdawkins_20 5 points6 points  (0 children)

Yep. Such a clutch move. Kept Harden rested and focused on playmaking in the half court. Kept Maxey engaged and for him going.

[–][deleted] 64 points65 points  (13 children)

It’s all but over in my opinion, Celtics fans are comparing this series to the Bucks last year but it’s completely different. C’s showed up for game 5 and ultimately blew a lead, I’ve never quite seen the Celtics just not show up at home to the level they did in game 5. They can’t stop simple P&R’s, they’re making no adjustments and they’re playing with absolutely no energy. There just hasn’t really been any noticeable jump in intensity from the regular season to the playoffs with them, which is utterly incomprehensible considering this core has so much postseason experience.

[–][PHI] Joel EmbiidWill_Explode8 22 points23 points  (1 child)

Ehh, if they're motivated and get hot from three tonight you can never count out this Celtics core

[–]donnycruz76 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Al Horford Strokes 6 from 7

[–]MavericksMSKOnlyScans 27 points28 points  (1 child)

This feels like a Bill Simmons-esque attempt at a reverse jinx.

[–]AzureAhai 3 points4 points  (0 children)

Nah, this Celtics core has had motivation issues across 3 different coaches now. I think going to all the conference finals early on in their careers messed with their perspective. They can't be motivated to show up to every playoff game. They play like a defending champion who slack off because they know they can flip a switch, except they aren't good enough to just flip a switch and blow out a team like the 76ers out with 1 or 2 quarters of effort.

[–]76ersJethro_Cull 24 points25 points  (1 child)

On the other side, everything went well for the Sixers in game 5. Maxey, Embiid, Tobias, and House all played their best games of the series. Harden, Melton, and Niang played at or above their normal level as well. Horford didn’t shoot well and Tatum got off to a slow start. I think a couple adjustments and some natural regression makes this a 50/50 contest.

[–]CelticsYouthInRevolt 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Philly shot 50/40/85 as a TEAM in game 5. If they can do that again then you’ve gotta tip your cap

[–]Celticsrveets1416 5 points6 points  (0 children)

You do realize this isn't just a "simple P&R" right? This P&R consists of an MVP center who moves like a wing and is deadly from the mid-range and a larger guard who was a former MVP for his ability to score and is now show-casing his league-leading playmaking. Their P&R numbers in the regular season were elite, and they're just spamming it now in the postseason because there are almost no players in the NBA who can play Embiid straight up except for like AD. Horford can do it in spurts but by no means is he gonna shut him down.

This game will hinge on the Celtics 3 point shooting and Harden's aggressiveness.

If the Celtics' 3s are going in and Harden isn't aggressive, Celtics win.

If the Celtics 3's are not going in and Harden is aggressive, Philly wins.

If we have any other combination, its going to be a rock fight where anything can happen.

[–]CelticsTotal_Customer_6627 7 points8 points  (0 children)

Also our coaching just can’t hang on for a deep playoff run. Lack of adjustments and player swaps is hurting us.

[–]LebanonbeefJeRKy-LB 1 point2 points  (1 child)

Think the Cs win tonight but then lose in game 7 myself

[–]CelticsYouthInRevolt 0 points1 point  (0 children)

The darkest timeline

[–]CelticsBigBallerBrad 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Yah they’re probably cooked, only way they win is if they hit 20 threes and Philly hits like 7

[–]tobybells 52 points53 points  (6 children)

Sixers had the best record in the NBA since Dec 9th along with the toughest schedule post All Star break…hindsight is 20/20 but there was a pretty big sample size available to see them winning this series as a real possibility.

They’re also 4-2 vs Boston in the last 6, could’ve been 5-2 in last 7 if not for a wild full court game winner from Embiid being too late.

Hope they can finish it off tonight.

[–]76ersspinderlinder 41 points42 points  (1 child)

[–]Lofty_Vagary 9 points10 points  (1 child)

I use Apollo too. Usually with it, you can select a poll option to vote on, then it opens up the in-Apollo-Internet-browser window into the Reddit site. Sign in through that, and from then on, you should be able to vote on polls and see the results in Apollo. Just every time you want to vote on a poll, it’ll open up the in-Apollo browser, but you shouldn’t have to sign in again every time.

As a Celtics fan.

Harden shows up, we lose. No? Game 7 and we still lose.

Celtics don't need an explosion, they need consistency.

[–]76erschoose_uh_username 1 point2 points  (0 children)

This is the assessment I got from my Boston fan coworker. He actually is more confident in a Celtics win tonight and then a loss game 7 then anything else. I'm surprised though they definitely still have our number, 2 games could've easily have flipped to celtics wins

[–]76ersthefreeman419 1 point2 points  (2 children)

[–]Ronin607 3 points4 points  (0 children)

I think the Celtics win game 6 and then no show game 7 and walk off the floor in the final game of the season to a serenade of boos. And then Jalen Brown demands a sign and trade to Houston so he can be reunited with Udoka and Kyrie.

[–]50Burger 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Celtics winning a road elimination game and the Sixers losing a home closeout game would not be that surprising. I think Tatum has a big game tonight in a W.

[–]AceVetoKing 0 points1 point  (0 children)

If the Celtics can't force this to a game 7, the ownership needs to take a hard look at the team. There is too much talent on that team to go out this way. If I were the Brad Stevens, I'd fire Mazzulla if they lose tonight. If he can't get this team fired up to force the 76ers to have to win in Boston, then he does not have control over this team.

I hope there's a game 7! Between embiid, doc and harden there's a lot of heartbreak game 7s so if it reaches that they'll get flashbacks and lose.

Yes. This is their year. They are the team of destiny. Top 5 coach. Two top 5 players. Best GM in the league. What more do they need? No one is the west can compete with the East. Its crazy cause philadelphia has been to 3 champions already this past year.

Been a Philly fan since birth. The iverson years, the iggy miller experiment , the holiday thad iggy trio, the process years where Robert covington got boo’d for each shot he took..…. And so I know…from years of experience.

Sixers will not win game 6, nor will we win the series lol. It’s just in our blood.

[–]SunsManicManicManicManic 0 points1 point  (1 child)

Harden obviously has to be a large part of the offense but 76ers have good supporting players. If Harden scores over 27 i feel Philly takes it

[–]76ersPensiveinNJ 0 points1 point  (0 children)

The thing about Harden is we don't need him to score big numbers. 20 is plenty. We need him to control the pace, get penetration and give looks to our shooters, work the PnR with Jo and when he does get a good look not smoke like 7 layups in one game.

Like 20/X/12 on good efficiency and otherwise distributing well. If we get a big shooting night from him that's a bonus but a game like he had last game is plenty.

[–]Zark_Muckerberger 0 points1 point  (0 children)

I think the Sixers finally get over the hump and move on to the conf. finals this year, although maybe not tonight. But that’s as far as they go.
