Rozier dropped a playoff career-high 29 points and stuffed the stat sheet with eight rebound and six assists.

Veteran Al Horford added 26 points as the C's picked up the slack for Jaylen Brown who sat out with the hamstring injury.

Embiid played great, scoring 31 points and hauling down 13 rebounds with five assists.

"I told him all series he's really important to us", said Celtics head coach Brad Stevens of Rozier after the 24-year-old made 5-of-8 3-pointers against the Bucks in Game 7. Boston controlled the quarter and managed to extend their lead to 17-points, 87-70, with 40.9 seconds left in the quarter.

The 76ers star expressed his disappointment in the team's performance during Philadelphia's 117-101 loss to the Celtics in Game 1 on Monday, saying there was no excuse for dropping the ball other than awful play. The crowd in Boston.

"Whatever it takes, I wouldn't miss this series for the world", Brown said.

The difference maker for stopping the Sixers was the Celtics' perimeter defense, that halted all opportunities to make an impact from beyond for Philadelphia.

The young swingman also lobbied to play in Game One, according to the report, which states that Brown attempted to convince Boston's medical staff that he was fit to play in the hours leading up to Monday's game. Boston won't shoot that well every night, even if the Sixers' defensive issues were partially at fault. It was good. I love that type of atmosphere because it kind of elevates my game. "I don't think we started off the game as crisp as we ended it, but, yeah, that could be - that could certainly be a reason for whether they were a little bit rusty in Game 1 or whether we had the rhythm from Game 7". "We need more of that from him".

As the game played out, the Celtics seemed much more ready than the Sixers, who had the look of a team that was out of sync.

"Give [the Celtics] credit". Unfortunately for this Sixers squad, the best team doesn't always win. "I personally grew up with this rivalry, just right on your doorstep and just a big part of your basketball life as a young kid".

Tatum has now scored 20 or more in three straight games, the first Boston rookie to do so in the playoffs since Larry Bird accomplished the feat in four straight playoff tilts during the 1980 playoffs.
