Celtics Rally To Beat 76ers In Game 2, Another Amazing Game From LeBron, Kentucky Derby Favorites This Weekend
Friday, May 4, 2018
The Boston Celtics rallied from a 22 point deficit to defeat the Philadelphia 76ers on Thursday night. Celtics’ Jayson Tatum and Terry Rozier added 21 and 20 points respectively, while the Sixers J.J. Redick and Joel Embiid contributed 23 and 22 points to their team’s efforts. Unfortunately for Philly, their rookie phenom Ben Simmons only scored one point (the first time he hasn’t scored a field goal this entire season). After the game Simmons reflected on his disappointing night saying, “Mentally, just thinking too much. I’m going to have bad games. It happens. Obviously, it’s bad timing.” Celtics are now up 2-0 with game 3 back in Philly on Saturday night.
With an astounding 43 points, 14 assists and 8 rebounds from LeBron James and a big 31 points from Kevin Love, the Cleveland Cavaliers took a commanding 2-0 series lead over the Toronto Raptors.
