76ers vs Celtics Free Pick May 14, 2012

The Boston Celtics take on the Philadelphia 76ers in game two of their semifinal best of seven series in the eastern conference on May 14. The Celtics won game one of the series 92-91 in Boston. Veteran Kevin Garnett who scored 29 points and pulled down 11 rebounds led Boston. Guard Rajon Rondo also helped tremendously as he had another triple-double for the Celtics, his eighth career playoff triple-double.

Andre Iguodala who had 19 points, six assists and six rebounds led Philadelphia. Boston played very efficiently on the offense end under the court leadership of Rondo. Rondo ended the night with 13 points, 17 assists and 12 rebounds.

The 76ers looked strong on both offense and defense and if not for the last hoop, they might have stolen the first game from the veteran Celtics. Evan Turner had 16 points and 10 rebounds to help the 76ers, who will look to play the same game in Monday’s game and try to head back to Philly with the series tied at one game apiece.

Early in the fourth quarter the Celtics trailed by 10 points, by outscored the Sixers 23-7 down the stretch. Boston hopes that Paul Pierce, the team’s high scorer will have a better second game. The veteran was slowed by a sprained MCL and only hit 3 of 11 shots to score 14 points.

Garnett was the only starter for the Celtics to make a basket during the first quarter of the game. Ray Allen shot 3 for 5 for the game in 14 minutes while nursing bone spurs. Boston only made 2 of their 18 three-point shots.

The current line has Boston as a 5-point favorite with the total sitting at 172 ½. Take the Celtics less the points to win the second game of the series. The total will pay out to the OVER bettors.
