NBA Playoffs Schedule: Celtics Vs. Sixers Begins Saturday

The Boston Celtics and the Philadelphia 76ers both advanced to the Eastern Conference semifinals and will tip off on Saturday night to start the series. The 76ers got past a Chicago Bulls team that lost both Derrick Rose and Joakim Noah, but Philadelphia did its job and won the necessary games to advance.

The Celtics were pushed by the Atlanta Hawks late in the series, but the crafty veterans held on and closed out the series. The key for Boston is to preserve its gas tank by taking care of the series a bit quick this time.
