Joel Embiid gets called for tech after shoving Aron Baynes

The 76ers' best season since 2000-01 is over.

Boston will play Cleveland for the second straight year for a spot in the National Basketball Association finals.

Wednesday's Game 5 starts at 8 p.m. EDT on TNT.

Philadelphia is only a one-point underdog in Game 5, according to OddsShark.

In general, Celtics guard Shane Larkin left the team's 103-92 after their loss in the fourth game to Philadelphia on Monday night with a left shoulder injury as well as he did not return.

Joel Embiid and Saric each had 27 for Philadelphia.

Jayson Tatum finished with 25 points and four assists. Right before the play began, Embiid tossed his face mask. He grabbed the offensive rebound and missed the tip-in at the 11 second mark. The Celtics were awarded the ball. We had strategic chess matches, heated words on and off the court and a penultimate game that was one of the most exciting in the playoffs thus far. "How do I help my stars be stars because at the end of the day that's what we need", Brown said. "But you can't really do anything about it".

Brown scored the first five points of the second half for the Celtics, including a second-chance three to give Boston a 10-point lead. That's when the Sixers put Marcus Smart on the foul line. The reserve guard threw the ball in the air as time expired.

"I always hoped we would get to a point where if things don't go our way, we're still extremely competitive because we have a kind of foundation in place", he said.

"He just asked me how did I feel about it", Covington said of his conversation with Brown. Some games, some guys were playing well. This was a process to get to the conference finals, we didn't.

"But we definitely have more to show". "It's the way he plays, it's an injection of energy that you immediately know you're going to get with him".

He made the most of it, combining with rookie Jayson Tatum to score 49 points on 18 of 28 shooting. Ben Simmons posted 18 points, eight boards and six assists. Embiid will not use his mask for an excuse, and it will be left to wonder how much it impacted him in the playoffs. On this night, however, he didn't have to wear the lens that attached to the mask.

The Celtics should still be feeling confident heading back to Boston.

During the regular season, the Celtics (37.7%, 2nd in NBA) and Sixers (36.9%, 10th) were separated by less than a percentage point in 3-point accuracy.

LeBron James ended Toronto's season for the third straight year as Cleveland rolled to complete the sweep.

Joel Embiid is leading the Sixers in scoring, but the Celtics have done a pretty good job of limiting his damage around the basket.

J.J. Reddick's 3-pointer cut the deficit to one, and then it was Smart's turn.

Philadelphia started hot, shooting 55 percent from the field in the first half. They are taking less 3s and making less.

Even Embiid is also got a bit boisterous after the Sixers had stretched this will lead the double digits late in the third quarter.
