With Five Minutes Left In 3rd Quarter, Neither Team Has Broken 50

The Boston Celtics opened up a 10-point lead midway through the third quarter of Game 7, but just when it seemed like the C's may build an insurmountable (read: low double-digits) lead over the Philadelphia 76ers, Philly went on a mini-run of their own. With 5:07 left in the third quarter, the score reads Boston 49, Philadelphia 45. Yep, the game has been as bad as the score would indicate.

The 76ers are 16-for-51 from the floor, good for a 31.4 percent shooting percentage. Before Celtics fans laugh too hard, realize your team is just 19-of-51 from the field. That would equate to 37 percent.

Brandon Bass has 12 to lead the Celtics. Jrue Holiday has 10 to lead the 76ers.
