Philadelphia fell by only one point in Game 1 after beating the team with the best record in the NBA. Can they even the series in Game 2?

Rajon Rondo did unspeakable things to Philadelphia in Game 1, giving the Celtics a victory and the advantage in the Eastern Conference Semifinals. The Sixers might have handled the Bulls in the first round, but that was without their star point guard. The Celtics have theirs, and Rondo notched 17 assists in his triple-double to give Boston the 1-0 lead in the series.

Boston needed every ounce of Rondo's effort: despite his virtuoso showing, the C's only won by one point. Philly didn't look like the brightest squad all season, but the 76ers beat a Derrick Rose-less Bulls team that had played very well without Rose in the regular season. Their arrival in the second round certainly wasn't a fluke, and they played Boston close despite an effort that wasn't their best showing. We'll see how the Sixers do against the Celtics going forward.

Here's the info on how to catch Game 2:

No. 4 Boston Celtics vs. No. 8 Philadelphia 76ers

7:00 p.m. ET -- Game 2, Eastern Conference Semifinals | Celtics lead, 1-0
