Boston Celtics Blow Out Philadelphia 76ers En Route To Eastern Conference Finals

After a thrilling series to this point, the Boston Celtics and Philadelphia 76ers would do battle one last time on Sunday to decide who will face the Miami Heat in the Eastern Conference Finals, but no one quite saw what was about to happen next.

After struggling for the majority of this series, their Game 7 matchup will forever be defined by the history making performance of Jayson Tatum, who put up 51 points in the 112-88 win, the most ever in a Game 7 in NBA history. 

Now, they will battle the Heat in a NBA Bubble ECF rematch, and as for the 76ers, they have plenty of work to do if they wish to continue building around their MVP Joel Embiid, but for now, things don't look good for Doc Rivers, Embiid and James Harden, who can opt out of his contract and become a free agent this off-season.
