The chances the Philadelphia 76ers see a Game Seven just got better.
According to SB Nation's Gethin Coolbaugh, Boston Celtics head coach Doc Rivers has said he doesn't believe Avery Bradley will be available to play Wednesday night in Game Six against the Sixers.
Bradley's continued absence could be a serious blow after being such a crucial cog in their success throughout the entire season, including the playoffs. Bradley is one of the best defensive players in the league, capable of shutting down just about any guard one-on -one.
The loss of Bradley for tonight's game could put a lot more of the onus on Ray Allen to produce some extra minutes.
Boston was able to win Game Five rather easily without Bradley, but it will become a tougher task as the series drags on and becomes more of a grudge match. A shoulder injury is always tough to figure, considering the amount of stress it goes through in a normal NBA game.
Philly needs to take advantage of this while Boston is still trying to reshuffle its rotation.
