NBA Betting Lines: Sixers at Celtics Game 5 Picks

The Celtics blew the perfect chance top put away the series against the Sixers when they led
escape a 17 points advantage in the last quarter. Boston returns to the TD Garden this Monday
night to host Philadelphia in game 5.

The Sixers outscored the Celtics 33-20 in the last quarter, including a big three point shot from
Andre Iguodala in the last minute of the contest to win 92-83 over Boston. “I don’t even know
where to start,” Philadelphia coach Doug Collins said. “Our guys are pretty amazing. They really
are.”

Iguodala was cold before the last two minutes, and then he found some rhythm and sealed
the win for Philly. “That’s not the first time he found me in that same exact spot,” Iguodala
said. “Just not as big a platform as it was tonight. But it worked out for us.”

Kevin Garnett had a horrible night as he missed nine of 12 shots. Paul Pierce scored 24 points
and Rajon Rondo had 15 points and 15 assists.

“We had a team down, and we didn’t finish them off,” Garnett said. “It’s pretty disappointing.
So, we have to go back home. They did what they needed to do to protect their home court,
now we have to go do the same thing.”

The Philly & Boston series is tied 2-2, and despite the incredible win, the Sixers opened +5.5
points dogs in Boston for Mondays; the game total is set at 174.
