- on May 15, 2023
I’m going to the Eastern Finals for the second year in a row.
The Boston Celtics beat the Philadelphia 76ers 112-88 in Game 7 of the 2nd round of the Eastern Conference Playoffs of the 2022-2023 season held at TD Garden in Boston, Massachusetts, USA on the 15th at 4:30 am (Korean time) won big with
East No. 2 seed Boston defeated No. 3 seed Philadelphia 4-3 to advance to the next round. 2 wins in a row in the series 2-3 crisis. It is advancing to the Eastern Finals for the second year in a row. In the Eastern Finals held on the 17th, they will face the 8th seed Miami Heat.
Jayson Tatum had a 안전놀이터blast with 51 points, 13 rebounds and 5 assists, including six 3-pointers. It is the most points scored by a player in Game 7 of the playoffs in NBA history.
Tatum scored as he pleased regardless of who blocked it from inside and outside. In particular, Joel Embiid and matchup were actively used.
Jaylen Brown had 25 points and six rebounds and Malcolm Brogdon had 12 points.
Philadelphia missed out on a series they had run out. MVP Embiid was sluggish in the air defense with 15 points and 8 rebounds. James Harden also failed to do his part with 9 points, 6 rebounds, 7 assists and 5 errors.
The two players threw 29 and missed 24. Of the 12 errors the team recorded, 10 came from Embiid and Harden.
In the third quarter, Boston took the lead. By the second quarter, the lead was narrowly 55-52.
The winner is the 3rd quarter. Boston beat Philadelphia in offense and defense.
In the attack, Tatum used a mismatch with Embiid. He did not avoid Embiid, who had good defense. Rather, when Embiid blocked it, he became more aggressive and scored.
The defense was effective in putting pressure on Philadelphia’s main ball handler, Harden. When Harden and Embiid played two-man games, they did not give up space easily.
Boston caught the flow perfectly, finishing the third quarter 33-10.
At the beginning of the 4th quarter, Philadelphia tried to follow quickly with 3 points, but the success rate was not good. He was already mentally broken.
In Boston, on the other hand, Tatum continued to give Embiid nightmares. The 3-point shot in front of Embiid with 7 minutes and 21 seconds left in the game was the decisive blow.
