SIXERS LOSE TO CELTICS 4-3 IN FEVER DREAM FIRST ROUND!

Says the Inside Hook:

#3 Boston Celtics vs. #6 SIXERS

Season series: Philly 3-1

This is the only match-up where the lower-seeded team either won or was leading the season series.

Welcome to the Sixers’ bizarre 2019-2020 season, which was disappointing and exhilarating in turn. Injuries and bad streaks shot Philly down to sixth, but as they showed in the first three match-ups against Boston, they can beat anyone at any time.

Boston was pretty good prior to the shutdown in their own right, though clearly a level below the Milwaukee-Toronto tier in the East. This would have likely been the best Eastern Conference showdown of the first round, but Philly’s inconsistency and lack of spacing would have cost them.

Prediction: Boston 4-3
