Process Stopped: Celtics Down Sixers to Set Up Showdown with Cavaliers

The 76ers entered the playoffs with a 16-game winning streak and high expectations, but the Celtics shook off injuries to players including Australian-born All-Star Kyrie Irving to win the first three games and then close it out on their home court. He added 13 points (including one triple), nine rebounds (five offensive) and was a beast on the defensive end in 24 minutes of game time. The rookie sensation followed that up in the Sixers' Game 4 victory Monday with a 19-point, 13-rebound double-double.

After the game, Philadelphia head coach Brett Brown said he wasn't ready to reflect on anything the Sixers might have accomplished during the season.

"I feel like this season was kind of like a success", Embiid said. They put up a strong fight against the Boston Celtics, but the Celtics proved themselves to be the better team when the moment mattered most.

The Los Angeles Lakers' lottery pick will go to either the 76ers or Celtics: Boston will receive the selection if it lands at Nos. The ratings scale is 1-5 stars. But on Wednesday, the loss to Boston - and what could have been - was foremost on their minds.

The Celtics have exposed Simmons' poor shooting by standing off him and daring him to shoot while smothering the 76ers' arsenal of three-point shooters JJ Redick, Dario Saric, Marco Belinelli and Ersan Ilyasova with defenders.

In any event, much as I wanted to see the Sixers move on to face the Cavs, I refuse to be disappointed with the way this season ended up.
