The Boston Celtics have the experience, the home court and four All-Star players. That should be enough for them to defeat the Philadelphia 76ers in the Eastern Conference semifinals. But the playoffs are all about matchups and the Celtics have a true advantage at only one position in this series. Therefore, this has the makings of a very close series.

Both teams are well coached with experienced playoff leaders. Both teams play tremendous defense, so each and every basket will be hard earned. This series will not be pretty, and it will not be high scoring. In fact, some of these games might be played in the high 70s to low 80s due to the healthy defenses and anemic offenses of both teams. That said, this promises to be extremely entertaining series because each and every game should be close.
