The Boston Celtics and Philadelphia 76ers have done very little to advance the aesthetic appeal of the game of basketball in their Eastern Conference Semifinals series. Fortunately, their final game is half over, and the Celtics lead in another slobberknocker 41-33.
Brandon Bass leads all scorers with 10 points. He is, in fact, the only player in double digits in points in the game. Kevin Garnett, victimized by the vicious effects of aging and the rim on a dunk attempt in the first half, has nine points and seven rebounds. Rajon Rondo has five points, five assists, and five boards.
For the Sixers, who had 13 points in the second quarter, Elton Brand (eight points), Andre Iguodala (seven points), and Jrue Holiday (seven points, three assists, two boards, two steals) have led the way. But Philly is shooting a pitiful 28.2 percent from the field.
