76ers Coach Brett Brown threw TJ McConnell into the starting line up for Game 4 and it paid off straight away. Not only did McConnell have a stat line of 19 points, 7 rebounds and 5 assists, the attention he warranted from the Celtics allowed Simmons to find his way into the paint for some easy baskets, along with some much needed confidence in what’s been a disappointing 2nd Round for the ROY (soon to be).

This one’s a tough pick for the Spread, but we’ll take the home team to close out the Series. Philly have had to work hard for everything they’ve gotten offensively, and Boston thrive in these ugly, defensive games.

Overs best and 8-3 in the last 11 meetings in Boston.
