Celtics Unable To Finish off 76ers in Philadelphia
The Celtics failed to finish their series with the 76ers in six games, falling 82-75 Wednesday night in Philadelphia. Paul Pierce's 24-point, 10-rebound performance was not enough to overcome a 33 percent shooting night by the C's.
Jrue Holiday led the 76ers with 20 points and six assists, while Elton Brand contributed a double-double of 13 points and 10 rebounds. With the win, the 76ers forced a Game 7 Saturday in Boston.
