Al Horford, Sixers react to news of having to face Celtics in Round 1

USA Today


Article Summary:

Philadelphia has a storied history when it comes to the Celtics and with that, it comes with memories of 2018 when the Celtics ousted the Sixers in just five games in the semifinals. “For us, it’s a great opportunityit’s part of the business. Obviously, we’ve already played them plenty of times this year so that effect is out of the way so now we can go out there and compete and it should be a fun series.”

For coach Brett Brown, he now gets another shot at Celtics coach Brad Stevens and the Celtics. “We start talking about matchups. How we are going to guard them, how they are going to guard us, and I think the most important thing is what are we going to do on the court? As the Sixers, how are we going to show up? I think that’s more important than how they play. We are ready to fight.”

The Sixers have one seeding game left on Friday against the Houston Rockets before playoff prep for the Celtics begins.
