The 76ers will look to even their series against Boston in Game Two of the Eastern Conference Semifinals on Monday night.

Nobody said this playoff business would be easy.

The Philadelphia 76ers will try to even the Eastern Conference Semifinals at 1-1 in Game Two with the Boston Celtics on Monday night at TD Garden.

The Sixers had plenty of chances to take control against Boston in Game One, but couldn't get the job done late.

The Celtics found a way in a 92-91 victory in Game One, mostly due to Kevin Garnett's 29 points and 11 rebounds, and Rajon Rondo's triple-double.

After ousting the Bulls in six games, Philadelphia won't be a cake walk. It's true Chicago had some major injury issues, but Doug Collins has his team believing against a team that they've played well against throughout the season.

Evan Turner might be the x-factor. He needs to have another strong performance to help out Andre Iguodala down the stretch.

However, the Celtics know what it takes to win this time of year. They turned what was a 10-point Philly advantage early in the fourth quarter into a six-point lead with a 23-7 streak.

Boston is favored by all the experts because of the experience and poise it showed Game One.

If the Sixers want to win this match-up, winning Game Two has to be the turning point. Forget that the next two games are in Philly, holding serve probably isn't going to happen. A split is more likely, meaning a 2-0 hole would be devastating.
