The Phildelphia 76ers trail the Boston Celtics 41-33 at halftime of game seven of their series. The Sixers got off to a slow start and were hanging close to the Celtics, but Boston pulled away slightly in the closing minutes of the first half. If the Sixers aren't able to get out in front they may find themselves shut out in the second half.
Elton Brand, Jrue Holiday, and Andre Iugodala are leading things for the Sixers. Brand is 3-7 with eight points, and Iugodala and Holiday have seven points each. Philly is doing better in fouls, with 10 to Boston's 12.
The 76ers shot 11-39 to Boston's 15-40, and have eight turnovers to Boston's six. If they want to close out the Celtics and move on in the playoffs, they'll need a lot more of this from Iugodala in the second half:
