The Celtics are looking to go up 3-0 on the 76ers on Friday night, but Philadelphia isn’t making things easy for Boston. After three quarters of action, the Celtics held a slim 76-72 lead over the Sixers, thanks largely to Kemba Walker, who scored 20 points through 36 minutes of action.
As he has all series, Joel Embiid has led the way for the 76ers with 24 points and 11 rebounds — a full night’s work for most players — through three quarters. Embiid has gotten a bit of help from Tobias Harris, who put in 15 points of his own, but Philadelphia will still need others to step up if they want to pull out a much-needed win.
