Philadelphia vs Boston Celtics by Majorleague
There are only 3 teams, it started yesterday, Boston lost to Utah 100:82. They were outscored in the 2nd and 4th period..
Boston has a good team, but they are very weak in the paint, only named 2 big mans, and 1 of them didnt play yesterday, it was Colton Iverson who signed a contract in Europe, so he left the team, he was the only center in the roster, huge blow..... Marcus Smart was poor with the shooting, they were in trouble defending on the perimeter, both, Exum and Hood scored in double digits.. Because of the weak bigman rotation they were outrebounded by 20(!!) 51-31..
Philly lost to Spurs, 74:71, but it was a close game, this years No 3. Jahlil Okafor started slowly, 3/11 in the first half, but he finished with 21 points 9/21 from the field. Philly won the rebounding battle 48-44, they are solid in the paint with Okafor, Aldemir and Grant.
They key to the macth will be to controll the paint and be agressive on defense in the perimeter against Smart and Rozeir.
Its an easy win for Philly, another 20+ for Okafor. Philly by 5-10.
