The 76ers will look to take a 3-2 series lead with a win in Boston tonight against the Celtics in Game 5 if the Eastern Conference Semifinals.
We're back where we started once again.
Give credit to the Sixers for being resilient. Twice it appears that Boston might run away with this series, only to have Philadelphia come roaring back to even the score.
Now, Doug Collins and his crew are simply trying to steal one on the road. If they can do so, they know a home date awaits with an opportunity to move on to the next round.
It will interesting to watch Paul Pierce, who is clearly injured and trying to fight through the pain. Pierce had 24 points Friday night, but has been very inconsistent all postseason. He could make the difference one way or the other.
The 76ers will need a big effort from their big guns. Andre Iguodala scored 16 points to accompany seven rebounds and four assists in Game Four. He'll likely need to have another nice game and maybe add to that point total for his team to find a way Monday night.
