The Philadelphia 76ers Lay an Egg in Game 3 Against the Boston Celtics May 18th, 2012 at 12:28 PM
By Jason Dumas
The Philadelphia 76ers looked overwhelmed in their first 2nd round playoff game since 2003. The Boston Celtics ratcheted the intensity and the Sixers never responded, as the Celtics used a dominant second quarter to beat the 76ers 107-91 on Wednesday night and take a 2-1 lead in the best-of-seven Eastern Conference semifinal series.
Kevin Garnett scored 27 points and grabbed 13 rebounds and seemed to have something to say after every single basket. Rajon Rondo got anywhere on the court he wanted, and Paul Pierce broke out of a slump by getting to the foul line constantly. Frankly, the Sixers looked timid, tight, and not ready for the stage which is disappointing because the fans came out in full support at the Wells Fargo Center.
Game 4 is Friday night at 8:00. If the Sixers don't win this game it is safe to assume that their season will be over.
