Celtics Take Commanding 3-0 Lead [VIDEO]
A wild game three in Philadelphia but the Boston Celtics win it in overtime 101-98 and take a commanding 3-0 lead in the series.
Rookie Jayson Tatum led the C's in scoring with 24 points. Elias Sports Bureau says Tatum passes Larry Bird (1980) with five consecutive 20 point playoff games.
The Celtics thought they had a win in regulation but Marco Belinelli hit a shot at the buzzer to tie the game. Confetti rained down as many thought it was a three-pointer that won the game.
Then in OT and trailing by a point, the Celtics executed a perfect play to get an Al Horford basket. Then the C's stole a inbound pass by Philly and Horford hit two free throws.
Terry Rozier had 18 points. Jaylen Brown added 16.
Joel Embiid had 22 points and 19 rebounds before fouling out for the 76ers.
