Philadelphia 76ers center, JOEL EMBIID, looks into the face of Boston Celtics defender GREG MONROE in the fourth quarter of game 4 of the NBA playoff. EMBIID scored 15 points with 13 rebounds, leading the 76ers to a 103-92 victory.
Uploaded here are four really outstanding images from tonight’s NBA playoff game 4, won by the 76ers 103-92. 76ers head coach, BRETT BROWN, needed a victory badly, trailing the Celtic 3-0. 76ers forward, DARIO SARIC, scored 25 points while center, JOEL EMBIID, scored 15 points with 13 rebounds. The 76ers now return to Boston trailing the Celtics 3-1.
With their backs against the wall facing a 3-0 deficit, the Philadelphia 76ers lived to fight another day.
The young Sixers took advantage of 15 Celtics turnovers compared to just eight miscues of their own en route to an 103-92 win in Monday’s Game 4 in Philadelphia.
Feeding off the energy of point guard T.J. McConnell, whose hustle and toughness earned him his first career playoff start, the 76ers took a 47-43 halftime lead and turned it to 86-68 early in the fourth after back-to-back McConnell layups.
That elicited chants from the home crowd for McConnell, who finished with a career-high 19 points to go along with seven rebounds and five assists in 39 minutes. He was averaging under 10 minutes per playoff game coming into Monday.
