The Boston Celtics can advance to the Eastern Conference Finals on Wednesday night, but first they will need to defeat the Philadelphia 76ers in Game 6.

The Boston Celtics can close out its conference semifinals series against the Philadelphia 76ers on Wednesday night, but they'll need to do it on the road and against the established pattern of the previous five games. With wins and losses alternating each time in this series, the Celtics will need to break the mold and win back-to-back games.

In the previous two games at Wells Fargo Center, the Celtics first picked up a 16-point victory only to fall victim to a nine-point loss in the following game.

In Game 5, the Celtics had an impressive 101-85 victory at TD Garden. Brandon Bass led the team with 27 points while Kevin Garnett added 20 points. Rajon Rondo was solid with 13 points and 14 assists.

The Sixers, meanwhile, will need another strong effort from Elton Brand, who scored 19 points in Game 5. However, the team will need to avoid personal fouls and turnovers, which they couldn't on Monday. Fifteen turnovers and 24 personal fouls were too much to overcome.

Game 6 will tip off at 8:00 p.m. ET at Wells Fargo Center. ESPN will have the broadcast.
