Here are the Game 3 highlights of the match between the Boston Celtics and the Philadelphia 76ers which was scheduled on August 22, 2020 (Local Time).
The Celtics won their third meeting in the first round of the 2020 NBA Playoffs but most importantly they’re now ahead 3-0 and one more they’ll be in the East Semis.
Unlike in Game 2, Celtics forward, Jayson Tatum had an off-night where he logged 6-of-19 from the field which includes an awful 2-of-9 from downtown.
Yet, Boston found their scoring leaders from Kemba Walker and Jaylen Brown who delivered 24 and 21 points respectively.
Actually, the Sixers was poised to win the game where they almost had complete control after leading 94-92 as the match enters its last two minutes.
However, the Celtics stormed back using their smothering defense and orchestrated a 10-0 spurt to put their opponent away.
Joel Embiid led the scoring department for his squad with 30 points and 13 rebounds while Tobias Harris got 15 points and 15 boards in another Philly defeat.
Game 4 between the Boston Celtics and Philadelphia 76ers will resume on August 24 at 1:00 AM.
